Gunslugs on PlayStation Vita: Developer Q and A is Detailed

Gunslugs on PlayStation Vita: Developer Q and A is Detailed 50°
54w ago - Abstraction Games Creative Director Tj'ien Twijnstra shared a Gunslugs PlayStation Vita Developer Q and A with PS Vita fans below today!

To quote: Hey everyone! I'm extremely excited that Gunslugs is finally coming to its natural home, PS Vita, on February 18th. To celebrate the launch, we're offering a 20% discount for all PlayStation Plus members during the first week, so don't miss out!

For the occasion, I figured I'd give you guys a sneak peek at the porting process of Gunslugs; or as we like to call it, an "adaptation" process.

As I have no technical skills whatsoever, I interviewed Rutger Janssen, one of our elite programmers, and Ralph Egas, CEO and Abstraction Games Mastermind. Both developers were involved with the Gunslugs adaptation.

Tj'ien Twijnstra: Rutger, could you tell us a bit about the adaptation process? How does something like that work?

Rutger Janssen: After we determined the base version, the first step is to strip the game code of all the platform specific functions; only the game code remains. Then we take it through our in-house developed tool chain so the basic language is converted from Objective C to C++. Unfortunately, tools are never perfect, so here and there I needed to manually...
 

Disgaea 4 is Coming to PS Vita, NISA 2014 Lineup Detailed

Disgaea 4 is Coming to PS Vita, NISA 2014 Lineup Detailed 50°
55w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements detailed the NISA 2014 lineup today confirming that Disgaea 4 is indeed coming to PS Vita.

To quote: Last night, the small but spunky team at NIS America reminded downtown San Francisco of its dedication to quirky JRPGs and unusual adventures.

Sporting matching white and blue "Dood" jerseys, the team presented its lineup for 2014 at a local venue, with a little help from a torrent of teaser trailers. Anime in-jokes, self-referential dialogue, and explosions of color dominated the multimedia showcase, staying true to NISA's tradition of catering to otaku culture.

The evening began with NIS President Souhei Niikawa - donning a regal Prinny hat - thanking members of the press for their continued support. Niikawa also revealed that NIS is working on a PS4 game that would enjoy a proper announcement at this year's Tokyo Game Show.

His brief but humble wishes were followed with a host of trailers, each representing one of NISA's projects for the year.

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma PS3 Special Edition, Features Detailed

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma PS3 Special Edition, Features Detailed 50°
55w ago - Aksys Games Editor Mike Engler announced BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma PS3 Special Edition alongside detailing the features, as follows:

Greetings, and welcome to another missive from the mighty Aksys Citadel. As the North American launch of BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma draws ever closer, we thought it'd be good idea to talk a little bit about the game - especially all the new features and characters, not to mention the special edition and all of its various doodads. So without further ado, let's BlazBlue!

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma for PS3

First of all, there are a few system changes in Chrono Phantasma that set it apart from previous versions of the game. One of the most obvious additions is the Overdrive ability. By initiating Overdrive, you'll be able to amplify a character's overall skills and abilities for a set period of time.

When Overdrive is active, the stage will go dark, letting you know it's time to get down to business. When used to its fullest, the Overdrive system will allow a player to turn the tide of battle and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat!

Another big change is to the Network/Online portion of the game. The number of options available to the online warrior is, to be incredibly hyperbolic, mindboggling. In addition to the previous...
 

The Audio of Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita Detailed

The Audio of Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita Detailed 50°
60w ago - Audio Producer Daniel Simmons shared details today on the audio of Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: We recently added the first batch of sounds to Road Not Taken, and the team got really excited, like the game was finally coming together!

It's funny because it was such a small thing in relation to the huge amount of work that has already gone into the game, but it really highlights the difference sound can make in the way we experience things.

The world of Road Not Taken is made up of magical and natural surroundings. That makes me happy, because even though I love the bleeps and bloops you can get from synthesis, my favorite way to make sounds is from scratch like a foley artist.

It just so happened that I started working on the RNT audio catalog in the fall, right when there were piles of dried leaves everywhere - perfect! I brought a bucket of them inside and rustled them, crunched and dropped them... my studio was a mess!

Also, if you listen closely to the end of the second RNT teaser, you can hear some percussion that was made from dry sticks. At the time I was at a cottage on vacation with my family, so I used a...
