186w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some video footage today from Tokyo Game Show 2010 spotlighting Mega Man Universe on PSN.

To quote: Tucked deep inside Capcom's Tokyo Game Show hotel suite was the first hands-on build of Mega Man Universe, the upcoming PSN title that gives players a comprehensive toolset to build their own custom Mega Man levels and characters. Watch the new trailer below for a peek at the total package.

DualShock 3 clenched tightly in my sweaty hands, I powered through several of Mega Man Universe's pre-generated levels, which are based on the fan-favorite Mega Man 2.

I quickly discovered that some things never change: Mega Man Universe is freaking hard, even on the allegedly Easy mode. The levels were riddled with tricky moving platforms, brutal jumps, lethal spike pits, and the requisite homing-carrot-firing rabbit robots.





Of course, the difficulty level can vary wildly depending on the prowess of your custom Mega Man, which you upgrade by cobbling together spare parts from defeated bosses and iconic Capcom characters – Street Fighter's Ryu and Ghosts 'N Goblins Arthur were shown...

To quote: Greetings from the future. The sun is slowing rising on what is sure to be a beautiful Saturday morning, here in Tokyo. It's officially the third day of the Tokyo Game Show, and we haven't missed a beat.

PlayStation blew the roof off the Makuhari Messe convention center, with colossal announcements and tons of games. The PlayStation booth is sprawling with thousands of eager members of the press and gamers waiting to get their hands on the latest PS3 titles on PlayStation Move, and our favorite portable, the PSP.

With a video interview with devs on the new Devil May Cry, and a in-depth chat with The Last Guardian's director and designer, Fumito Ueda – shot, captured and ready to edit.





I ventured off on my next assignment – to capture our mammoth and most impressive showing at the Tokyo Game Show yet.

187w ago - If you are a Demon's Souls fan you will be pleased to know that PS3-exclusive title Project Dark was unveiled by FromSoftware today at Tokyo Game Show 2010 and is slated for a 2011 release.

During its media briefing at TGS 2010 FromSoftware director Hidetaka Miyazaki said the game is for those who enjoyed Demon's Souls and those who like dark fantasy video games.

The game will be released in 2011. Demon's Souls, released in 2009, today became part of Sony's Greatest Hits lineup in North America with a new price point of $29.99.

To quote from JoyStiq (linked above): "To complement the announcement of the Kinect-exclusive Steel Batallion sequel is the reveal of the PS3-exclusive Project Dark. Coming in 2011, it's from the team responsible for Demon's Souls.




While very few details were made available, it appears to have some kind of cooperative element. It's also probably really difficult."
