Atlus Unveils Persona 4 Golden: Solid Gold Premium PS Vita Edition

Atlus Unveils Persona 4 Golden: Solid Gold Premium PS Vita Edition 50°
132w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has officially unveiled the Persona 4 Golden: Solid Gold Premium Edition today for PlayStation Vita fans.

To quote: Persona 4 Golden. It's so hot right now. It's Japan's hottest PS Vita game of all time, selling more than twice as many units as the next bestselling title.

In the weeks following P4G's release, PS Vita hardware sales in Japan saw a dramatic spike, larger than at any time since the start of the year.

Perhaps it's because the original Persona 4 became such a phenomenon, winning tremendous critical acclaim and adoration from consumers. It could also be because Golden, the enhanced and expanded PS Vita version of the game, dramatically improves on the beloved RPG classic in so many gosh darn ways.

Did you know I speak PS Vita? True story. I can hear yours from here, musing aloud, longing for something amazing; it's practically begging to be loved. It wants copious oodles of Persona and it wants said oodles right now.

It wants 100+ hours of interacting with fleshed out, sharply written characters. It yearns for a rich world to get lost in, for intense battles, for blazing fast load times. Translation: your PS Vita has a fever, and the only prescription, is more Persona 4 Golden.

Video: KickBeat Hands-On for PlayStation Vita: It's All in the Mind

Video: KickBeat Hands-On for PlayStation Vita: It's All in the Mind 50°
132w ago - Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is here with a fresh hands-on video showcasing KickBeat for PlayStation Vita below today.

To quote: At first blush, you could be forgiven for thinking that KickBeat is a new riff on Beats, that seminal PSP downloadable gem that transformed your MP3 collection into an engaging button-tapping rhythm challenge.

Much like Beats, KickBeat awards you points for accurately tapping combinations of the four face buttons (or four quadrants on the front touchscreen) in time to the music and subtle visual cues.

But KickBeat is a far more ambitious game, both mechanically and aesthetically. Abandoning the abstract icons that clutter the interfaces of many music games, KickBeat reimagines the rhythm game as a chop-socky fighting scene with an agile protagonist battling hordes of incoming goons in a circular arena.

Each successive hit you land yields a bigger bonus multiplayer and more points, while missing an incoming attack diminishes your life meter. The game ramps up slowly but surely.

Smacking down the most basic yellow enemy type is easy enough, but the action quickly accelerates as new enemies types are introduced - red enemies attack from two places at once, while blue aggressors come in with a tricky one-two combo.

Video: Gamescom Hands-on: Assassin's Creed III Liberation PS Vita

Video: Gamescom Hands-on: Assassin's Creed III Liberation PS Vita 50°
133w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a hands-on look at Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita from Gamescom 2012 today.

To quote: Here at gamescom 2012, Ubisoft finally granted hands-on access to its newest assassin, Aveline, star of Assassin's Creed III Liberation.

In this video, story writer Richard Farrese walks us through some of the new features found in PS Vita's first entry in the series.

Liberation takes full advantage of the new Assassin's Creed III game engine and its simplified control scheme. Gone are the days of leaning on the shoulder button and playing defense during encounters.

Press Square for melee attacks, hold and release Triangle to aim and fire ranged weapons, Circle counters, X is used for block-breakers and other moves. It's a bit of an adjustment to begin thinking offense first in an Assassin's Creed game, but ultimately it's likely to be seen as an improvement.

Ubisoft is taking advantage of PS Vita's touchscreen in logical ways: tapping the screen brings up a split weapon wheel where you can select melee weapons (machete, hidden blades) on the left and ranged weapons (blowgun, whip) on the right.


 

Sony Details The Monsters & Magic of Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita

Sony Details The Monsters & Magic of Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita 100°
133w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared details today from Gamescom 2012 on the monsters and magic of Soul Sacrifice for the PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: It's been a while since our last Soul Sacrifice blog post, so with Gamescom taking place this week I thought I'd take a moment to share some new game details.

In our debut post, we talked about the reality-blended experience and the concept of sacrificing in Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita. Now, I'm going to provide a deeper insight into the game.

In the world of Soul Sacrifice, monsters are what have become of humans who succumbed to darkness, using magic according to their desire. The mission of a sorcerer is to exterminate these monsters.

Now, you may be wondering what sort of monsters you will come across and how they succumbed to this fate. Let's take a look at the back story of one of these monsters - "Griffon."

Griffon

He was a noble. His lands were vast, and he lived in opulence, supported by heavy taxes exacted from those who lived in his dominion. One day, he was presented with an offering from the people - a golden statue of a figure combining beast, bird, and man.

His heart was swept away by the figure, and he felt an unnatural adoration for it. The power of the...
