Video: Total Recoil Sets Its Sights on PlayStation Vita Consoles

50°
56w ago - Eiconic Games Art and Creative Director Simon Credland shared a video today announcing that Total Recoil is setting its sights on PlayStation Vita consoles.

To quote: Atten-tion recruits! This is an intel report from Si at indie developer Eiconic Games in the UK. We're glad to report that Total Recoil is making its way to PS Vita on July 9.

Download it and enjoy an explosion of arcade shoot 'em up action. There are only two rules in Total Recoil...

• Shoot everything that moves!
• Shoot everything that doesn't!

It all started when I was "busy" (with my feet up) playing Call of Duty on PS3, thinking to myself "These shoot-em-ups have come a long way since the old arcade games." So this started me wondering how a modern game would look on an arcade cabinet.

It would be top-down, the characters would have large heads, there would be wave after wave of baddies with flamethrowers, huge tanks and attack copters - and this is what you get with Total Recoil.

But developing on the PS Vita is better than an arcade machine and gives us more control than mobile and tablet games - we've made use of all the PS Vita's controls. You use the left stick to move, the right stick to shoot and strafe. When you fire a missile you can trace its path...
 

PS3 Slim Taiwanese Commemorative Launch Sets Unveiled

100°
255w ago - Kotaku (linked above) has revealed that some lucky Taiwanese people who purchased a PlayStation 3 Slim at launch received a unique bonus- commemorative launch sets.

Apparently Sony Taiwan gave away 150 of these special commemorative launch sets (pictured below) to 150 individuals who bought the PS3 Slim at launch.

To quote: "No, they didn't get those guys. Who wants stuffy businessmen when you can get other stuff? That's right other stuff.

Included in the bundle were one DualShock 3, one PS3 t-shirt, a limited edition PSN Card with 500 TWD and a limited edition USB card reader.

See? Much better than getting Sony execs."

Pretty cool indeed, although getting the Sony execs could have also been rewarding too.

292w ago - Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars looks like it's going to be a pretty fun mesh of old school and new school GTA gameplay. The fact it's one of the few interesting Nintendo DS games that isn't an RPG is also a plus point.

297w ago - Capcom's John Diamonon shared the following today via PS Blog:

Hey PS Fam! Long time no blog. It's my pleasure to announce that Age of Booty will finally become available today on the PSN for only $9.99. I know there was a delay bringing this title to you, but we had to make sure we fixed all the bugs before we deliver one of the most original digital games on this platform.

Anyway, Max Hoberman, the President of Certain Affinity and the developer of Age of Booty, wanted to give you some insights into this critically acclaimed game. He'll also answer any questions you have about the game. Without further ado, heeeere's Max!

This is a follow-up to my previous post, where I described the genesis of our upcoming downloadable pirate action RTS, Age of Booty. I left off with us signing a publishing deal with Capcom and beginning production. That was a year ago, and since then we've had a lot of time to improve upon the original design.

At this point you might be wondering what exactly Age of Booty is all about. In my last post I touched on the game's unique combination of simple, intuitive controls and mechanics and strategic depth. But that was all pretty high-level, so let's dive a bit deeper.

In Age of Booty you are the captain of a pirate ship, a...
