107w ago - Today Chinese PlayStation 3 developer chnps3hax has made available a 3.55 and 3.41 CFW fix for The House of the Dead: Overkill on PS3 Custom Firmware alongside a brief guide for the EBOOT Mod below.
The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 Custom Firmware fix is intended to be used with the The_House_Of_The_Dead_Overkill_USA_PS3-CLANDESTiNE (BLUS30774) PS3 scene release, however, some users report that using PlayStation Move may cause it to freeze.
Note: The game will work with the EUR version by renaming the "uk" folder in "PS3_GAME/USRDIR/uk" to "us" but some images and text are missing though. A European version fix is available HERE...
119w ago - Sega Digital Campaigns Manager Mike Kebby has posted up some new screens and details on their upcoming PS3 title House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut featuring creeping flesh and more below!
To quote: Not content with simply revealing the first exclusive level for the PS3 release of House of the Dead: Overkill, I'm back to give you the scoop on the second one too.
Set in the cosy confines of an abattoir taken over by a meaty disease of sorts, Creeping Flesh delivers you more of the additional awesome content we've lovingly added to the extended, and definitive, edition of OVERKILL.
We pick up the story with Varla and Candy again, and this time circumstances lead them to the local abattoir. I'm not going to spoil any of the story and the detail around what leads them there, but let's just say it's the standard House of the Dead fare; there are guns, motives for revenge and mutants galore, all wrapped up with the usual Grindhouse styling.
As you can see from the above image, there is something of a meaty infestation starting to take hold inside the building, and internally we've affectionately referred to this as the meat wall (there is also a meat tunnel later in the level,...
123w ago - Sega Public Relations Manager David Bruno has revealed details today on House of the Dead: Overkill Naked Terror for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: I'm pleased to be able to reveal some more exclusive news for you; this time in the form of a new level reveal.
We're proud to announce the details for the first of two exclusive levels from the Extended Cut; Naked Terror.
Naked Terror sees you fighting your way through a strip club (a real hardship I know), the streets of Bayou City and a bar, and not only do you have new environments to battle your way through, you also have new stripper and biker mutants to contend with.
The other cool aspect to this new level is who you play as, for this level G and Wash are elsewhere, leaving you to take control of Varla (previously an NPC in the original Overkill) and her stripper friend Candy.
Candy seems to have the required staples for any standard stripper: she has a heart of gold, is wholesome, innocent, yet can be naïve to the world. There is one big difference though between her and her stripper brethren; our heroine is pretty handy with a hand cannon, and skilfully adept at taking down enemies. Sounds like my kind of woman really.
There are connections between her and Jasper (the boss at the...
We announced The House of the Dead: OVERKILL - Extended Cut just before E3 this year, and were amazed to see that there were so many who were eager to take aim at the mutant infection springing up in Bayou County.
This is the first time we have released The House of the Dead on an HD console, and we feel that the PS3 is the perfect home for an arcade-style shooter like OVERKILL. With 3D and PlayStation Move support, two brand new scenarios added, and all seven stages of the original remastered, the 'baddest' just got bigger! We are really working hard to make this the best in the series to date.
These posters and our box art pay homage to our signature retro b-movie look, and hopefully you recognized the legendary Agent G and Detective Washington. This time around, we also...
