Video: There Came an Echo: Absurd Voice Cast, PS4 Story Details

100°
6w ago - Iridium Studios Lead Designer Jason Wishnov made available a PS4 video trailer for There Came an Echo, which features an absurd voice cast with PlayStation 4 Story details below.

To quote: So, we're indie developers. By and large, indie folk don't really do "story" the same way larger developers do... it's usually more minimalistic, and for lack of a better word, "artsy". Which is cool! There's space in the gaming sphere for everything, even whatever Suda 51's up to these days.

Still, we don't think "indie" and "complex narrative with well-developed characters and realistic dialogue" are mutually exclusive.

The voice command gameplay of There Came an Echo and its script were developed in conjunction with one another - the story is an integral part of the experience, not something tacked on after the fact.

The four members of your squadron aren't mindless military drones, but real people with imperfections, desires, and fears. And snark. They're pretty snarky.





And voice acting. If you've got voice acting, it better be good, or it's going to completely ruin the experience. Luckily, we're located in Hollywood, and we happen to know some people who are very good at saying things we tell...

To quote: Hello everyone, We are less than a week away from the North American release of Tales of Xillia 2!

Everyone here at Bandai Namco Games America Inc. is beyond excited to finally have fans get their hands on this great game. However, we know that maybe not everyone who is interested in Tales of Xillia 2 has played last year's Tales of Xillia.

Well friends, I have good news; we are going to provide you guys with a complete recap of the first game and get everyone caught up-to-speed with the video accompanying this post.

Along the way Ludger and Elle will meet up with the main cast of characters from Tales of Xillia who will serve as your party members in the game.

Special optional side stories will play out through the game with these returning characters, giving players insight on what has been happening to them...
 

Video: Inside the Story of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PS4

24w ago - Monolith Productions Community Manager Andy Salisbury shared a video that goes inside the story of middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PS4 and PS3 with details below.

To quote: From the very beginning, all of us here at Monolith Productions knew we had to go to great lengths to make Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PS4 and PS3 as authentic as possible.

From the landscape, to the weapons, to the inhabitants, to the architecture - everything required extreme attention to detail, and our main story was no exception.

To make the story of Talion and the mysterious Wraith he's connected to a reality, we worked with Lead Designer and Writer Christian Cantamessa (Red Dead Redemption).

And to bring our Ranger of The Black Gate to life, we could think of none better than the esteemed Troy Baker (The Last of Us, BioShock Infinite, Batman: Arkham City). Together, we're shaping this new tale set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.





Check out our latest trailer above, which shows a glimpse of what it was like on set, and look closely for the first glimpse of a beloved Middle-earth character, and a few new faces.

Both Troy and Christian had a tremendous impact on...
 

The Talos Principle on PS4: When Story Meets Puzzle

50°
25w ago - Writer Tom Jubert outlines When Story Meets Puzzle in The Talos Principle on PS4 today with details below, to quote:

Hello. I'm Tom Jubert, one of the writers on The Talos Principle for PS4, and I'm here to tell you a bit about the game because the other guys are lazy busy with finishing it.

Announced during the PlayStation press conference at E3 in June, The Talos Principle is a first-person philosophical puzzler from Croteam, the guys behind the Serious Sam games. It's a bit atmospheric, a bit sci-fi, and a proper challenge if you're looking for one.

The guys brought myself and Jonas Kyratzes on as writers around 9 months ago to deliver on their aspirations for the atmosphere and story. In The Talos Principle, you inhabit a robot body in a digital recreation of the ancient world, and explore at the behest of an omnipresent voice in the sky.

We're keeping our cards close to our chest on this one, but you could say Philip K. Dick's oeuvre is a close match for our general motif. We hope there's loads here to dig into and piece together if you're so minded, but equally if you're just here for the puzzles it won't get in your way.

About those puzzles. The concept has its roots in experimental puzzle mechanics developed for Serious Sam 4, and shares with that game...
 

Valiant Hearts: A More Personal War Story Coming to PS4 and PS3

50°
31w ago - Sony Content Manager Ed Casey made available a video showcasing Valiant Hearts stating it's a more personal war story which is coming to PS4 and PS3 consoles.

To quote: Valiant Hearts: The Great War is not the type of war story we're used to seeing in games.

Instead of focusing on soldiers, Valiant Hearts spotlights the lives of ordinary people thrust into an impossible, unbearable situation, and tells a personal and touching story set against the chaotic backdrop of World War I.





In this Developer Diary the Valiant Hearts team discusses the origins of the game and the research involved in creating the characters and atmosphere.

Combining real stories and World War I history with imagination and a unique art style they tell a story of love, loss, and adventure unlike any other.

You'll get to experience this story for yourself very soon, as the game will debut on PS4 and PS3 on June 24.
