17w ago - Witch Beam Artist/Programmer Tim Dawson announced today that Assault Android Cactus is set to unleash bullet hell on PS4 and PS Vita!
To quote: Hello PlayStation gamers! I'm thrilled to announce that our action-packed shoot 'em up, Assault Android Cactus, is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita!
For those of you who have never heard of Assault Android Cactus, it's about a team of androids trying to rescue a spaceship by fighting back against a robot uprising. Over a 25-level campaign, the androids will face screens of enemies, brave bullet hell style bosses and environments that switch, shift and transform around them.
These androids are pretty tough, getting knocked down clears their powerups but they can get right back up again. The catch is they run on battery, and when that runs out it's game over!
Putting the onus for action on the player turns typical twin stick pacing on its head - it's not a game you can beat by playing cautiously, the only way to make it out alive is to careen recklessly through the stages and to tame the chaos from within it.
We wanted to create something that captured the spirit of what arcade games meant to us when we were growing up, being tough but fair and the kind of game you could come back to again and again and...

To quote: God of War fans, our journey to Ascension begins now! We just showcased the worldwide premiere of our single-player experience for God of War: Ascension on the grandest E3 stage of them all - the PlayStation E3 press conference.

110w ago - VidZone CEO Adrian Workman has posted up a new video today introducing VidZone 2.0, which unleashes the true power of music video on PlayStation Network.

261w ago - Atlus U.S.A., Inc. announced that it has secured the North American publishing rights for Hammerin' Hero, an arcade-style, old school, side-scrolling beat 'em up for PSP.
Forget everything your parents told you about violence only being a last resort. In Hammerin' Hero, if it moves, hammer it. Pummel your way through 12 distinct levels, including city streets, an amusement park, a TV studio, a baseball stadium, and more.
Ever wonder what happens if you hammer something over the head in deep space? Underwater? The only way to find out is to pick up a copy of Hammerin' Hero for PSP on March 3. This is one hero you don't want to mess with! (hint: because he has a hammer.)
Hammerin' Hero is scheduled for release on March 3, 2009, with an MSRP of $29.99.
289w ago - First came Yoda, and with him, Darth Vader. And though both would take to the field of battle in Soulcalibur IV, they would do so across seperate planes of existence, perhaps seperate timelines, wherein one small shift lead to the appearance of one on the PS3, and the other on the Xbox 360.
But now, there is another.
Such came the proclamation from Namco-Bandai earlier today, as they revealed that the Jedi Master and the Sith Lord would not be the only ones engaged in lightsaber combat and wielding Force powers on the stage of history. Both versions of the anticipated weapon-combat fighting game will include some new blood, in the form of Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice.
The Secret Apprentice will appear straight from LucasArts' upcoming Star Wars: The Force Unleashed title, which takes place between Episodes III and IV, wherein Vader trains his own understudy in secret, carrying out Vader's orders while working to not expose his existance.
This will mark the first time since the poorly-received Masters of Teras Kasi that the Star Wars franchise will have been privy to one-on-one lightsaber combat in a true fighting game sense. SCIV will arrive on its respective consoles on July 29th, while Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be available for all consoles come September 16th,...
