Video: Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus Hits PS Vita on October 14th

Video: Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus Hits PS Vita on October 14th 50°
24w ago - Sony Social Media Production Assistant Kelly Nylander made available a PlayStation Vita video trailer today announcing that Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus hits PS Vita on October 14th, 2014.

To quote: Have you ever dreamed of your perfect game? Does it include a huge cast of lovably quirky shinobi girls whose fighting skills allow them to mow down armies of opponents?

Can they unleash special attacks that crush their foes with giant pancakes? Do they hide the armories of entire militaries beneath their clothes?

Is their entire epic saga of good versus evil set to the tune of a heart-pumping metal soundtrack? Well, we have heard your wishes, you people of frighteningly-specific desires!

A follow-up to Senran Kagura Burst, Shinovi Versus on PS Vita kicks the series up a dimensional notch. Beefing up the formerly side-scrolling beat-em-up into a full-fledged 3D experience, there are now plenty of expansive environments for you to traverse - dashing, slashing, and smashing every enemy along the way.

Bringing back the fast-paced, combo-heavy combat from the first game, Shinovi Versus makes use of all that extra space by packing it with even more adversaries and high-flying boss battles.


 

Soul Sacrifice Delta: Wield the Power of the Gods Eaters on PS Vita

Soul Sacrifice Delta: Wield the Power of the Gods Eaters on PS Vita 50°
24w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa invites PlayStation Vita fans to wield the power of the Gods Eaters in Soul Sacrifice Delta on PS Vita with an update below, as follows:

Hi fellow sorcerers, it's time to hit the download button again! We have a special treat for you today in the form of the mighty Marduk of Gods Eater 2 infamy.

Your mission, if you accept it, is to take on the role of Gods Eaters and hunt down this blazing fiend.

If you are to play as God Eaters you might as well look the part, so you will find nice leathery outfits in the Men and Women sections of Carnatux's Shop. Defeat the Marduk not once, not twice, but three times and these frocks are yours to keep, ladies and gentlemen.

Victory alone won't be quite enough if you want to get your hands on the Red Lupine Ruby and Red Lupine Wing offerings, however and you will have to destroy the fiend's cursed parts to claim the powerful spells.

To Geoffrey Chaucer's quote "All good things must come to an end," Thornton Wilder added "[...] but all bad things can continue forever." The Eternal Recursion could have been the inspiration for these words of wisdom.

I also believe they are a fitting conclusion to the last blog post update for Soul Sacrifice Delta, for the dreaded time for long goodbyes has...
 

Video: How Multiplayer Works in Frozen Synapse Prime on PS Vita

Video: How Multiplayer Works in Frozen Synapse Prime on PS Vita 50°
24w ago - Double 11 Design Manager Gareth Wright shared a video today detailing how multiplayer works in Frozen Synapse Prime on PS Vita below.

To quote: Hey Folks, We're getting very close to the release of Frozen Synapse Prime, and I wanted to go over what is really the biggest aspect of the game - the online multiplayer.

Online multiplayer in Prime is both synchronous and asynchronous, as the game is hosted off Double Eleven's set of dedicated Amazon cloud servers.

In other words, two players can either play against each other at the same time when they both have a PS Vita in hand, or they can play it like chess by post, where turns can be taken minutes to days at a time. So you could quick-match against an online opponent now, or take a weekly turn against your friend if you're not able to meet at the same time to play.




The asynchronous multiplayer aspect allows you to have several games on the go at once, against friends and opponents around the world. The game alerts you when a turn has been made in one of your matches, and players can track and manage their matches via their...
 

Feel the Beat in Jungle Rumble, Swinging Soon to PlayStation Vita

Feel the Beat in Jungle Rumble, Swinging Soon to PlayStation Vita 50°
25w ago - Disco Pixel's Trevor Stricker invites PS Vita fans to feel the beat today in Jungle Rumble, which will be swinging soon to PlayStation Vita.

To quote: We are stoked to announce that our rhythm game sensation, Jungle Rumble: Freedom, Happiness, and Bananas is coming to PS Vita very soon! We are adding more monkeys, more beats, and more bedlam. This is bananas!

What's Jungle Rumble? The player drums to control a tribe of monkeys. A rival tribe invades to steal bananas. The player sends monkey minions into the fray by drumming on the screen. It's the world's craziest rhythm game.

Using the PS Vita's touch screen to tap along to the beat of the jungle, players drum on monkeys and then drum on trees to have their simian soldiers swing through the trees. Drum on coconuts and then drum on enemies to throw those coconuts with rhythmic flair.

The player jaunts through the jungle with a rhythmic grammar. Unlike a traditional rhythm game there is no script to follow-in Jungle Rumble drumming controls the game.

As the game evolves, the questions pile up. Why would that tribe invade and shatter the peace in the jungle? What would cause them to risk war?

Jungle Rumble features a dynamic soundtrack - as more and more monkeys team up, the music swells with intensity....
 

Video: Frozen Synapse Prime: Combat Basics on PlayStation Vita

Video: Frozen Synapse Prime: Combat Basics on PlayStation Vita 50°
25w ago - Double Eleven's Mark South shared a video today detailing the combat basics in Frozen Synapse Prime on PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: Hey folks. To better help you understand what Frozen Synapse Prime is all about, we've created a video that runs through the basics of combat.

Here's a quick look at how the simultaneous-turn-based combat system works in Prime:

1.) Players on two separate teams plot paths and issue orders to their squad members, creating a plan on a turn-by-turn basis. You have the option of simulating the plan before you commit to it.

2.) Both teams then commit their plans for each turn; we call this "Priming" a turn.

3.) Once both players have primed their turns the outcome of both teams' plans is played out and the resulting combat ensues.




Once you wrap your head around that, you'll need to try and predict your opponent's strategies, wipe them out, or complete a set of match objectives – depending on the match type. Reading the environment and working with the strengths and positioning of your squad is key to victory.

You will learn and develop your own strategies. The mind games between players, and inspiring players to anticipate and deceive...
