Fat Princess This Thursday

Source: ps3blog.net

That’s right, Fat Princess will be hitting PSN this Thursday for $14.99 USD. It will also be released simultaneously worldwide, hitting North America, Europe and Asia. A release is still being worked out for Japan and nothing was said about an Australian release, but I don’t see why it couldn’t be released there as well. You can check out the Interview done by the Official PS Blog here:

Metalocalypse: Dethgame Announced

Source: ps3blog.net

Dethklok
So, who was expecting this? The game was supposed to be announced at the San Diego Comic Con, but slipped through a couple days early. For those of you who’ve never heard of or seen the show, it airs on Cartoon Network, during it’s Adult Swim lineup. The premise of the show is about the death metal band Dethklok. They are extremely famous, their shows are brutal, and their fans would do the craziest things to see them.

The show depicts lots of death sequences, from hot coffee pouring onto a crowd, and melting the skin off their faces and stuff to raising a death troll that destroys an entire village. I’d say there’s really not one show when there aren’t at least 100 people dying, and it’s only about a 13 minute run time (season 3 will have half-hour shows supposedly). Anyway, not much has been revealed about the game, besides it being developed by Konami and will be released on both the PlayStation Store and XBox Live marketplace. Here’s a clip from one of the shows, a promo for Duncan Hills coffee:

Reverse Gaming w/ Retro/Grade

Source: ps3blog.net

“What the heck is Jimmy talking about?” you’re probably asking. I’m asking that myself as well. There is a game coming to the PSN called Retro/Grade, and it’s a reverse side-scrolling shooter so to speak, and everything is played in reverse…

Yeah, I got lost too, but apparently, it’s more a rhythm game than a shooter. The game is being developed by 24 Caret Games, and this is their first title. According to Matt Gilgenbach, one of the company’s co-founders, this is the premise:

Retro/Grade stars ace fighter pilot Rick Rocket who has just saved the universe. Unfortunately, the massive destruction he left in his wake has caused a temporal anomaly that reversed the flow of time. You must assume control of Rick’s spacecraft and fight through the epic space battle… in reverse!

What’s even weirder, since it all plays in reverse, is the way you play it:

Rick must undo his actions exactly the reverse of the way he performed them in the first place. That means he has to get in the appropriate space lane from which his shot was fired and press the shoot button at the appropriate time. As well, he must avoid blocking the path of the enemy shots as they return to the enemy’s guns. If he blocks their path, it creates a paradox since he is stopping the shot before it was ever fired.

I don’t know about you, but this is one of the weirdest games I’ve heard of, and it’s nice seeing this kind of creativity in the world of over-populated run-of-the-mill genres we’ve become familiar with, and I’m hoping to see this game succeed, because we need this kind of ‘forward’ thinking to keep games from becoming stale. Not to mention, the game was also one of the finalists for the Independent Games Festival. You can check out their official site for a few more videos and information. Original news story from the Official Blog. No word on release date or anything yet, but they said you can follow them on Facebook for news and updates on there as well. What’s your opinion on this?

PSP Go development issues.

Source: ps3blog.net

iPhone developers Johnny Two Shoes and Firemint were interviewed by Eurogamer and were asked if the PSP Go could compete with Apple iPhone’s App store, they were hesitant of its chances;

“If Sony’s App Store also let you sell games to people with a regular, existing PSP model, that would be a much more attractive prospect,” he says.

“There are nearly 50 million of those out there already. Even if you only sold to a fraction of one percent of those people, it’s a significant number of sales. And even if the PSPgo sells great from day one, it’s going to take a long time before it starts getting anywhere near those numbers.”

It seems the PSP Go could have a tough start against an established competitor (sound familiar?) but in time prove successful. I guess only time will tell…

wipeoutfury
The add on pack Fury for WipEout HD is out in less than a week on PSN.

The pack will be priced at £7.99 / €9.99 and will provide three new race types – Eliminator, Zone Battle and Detonator, 12 new tracks, 13 new ships, 6 new music tracks, a redesigned menu system, a new campaign to complete as well a host of new trophies to win. Oh and let’s not forget the additional ranks for you to achieve online.

To be honest I can’t wait. Been looking for a good excuse to return and this is just it, I’m sure Zone Battle will be popular on the servers.

Fallout 3 DLC update.

Source: ps3blog.net

fallout3zeta
So no Fallout 3 DLC has been released in June. Why? There seems to be no specific reason but at least it is still coming. Now “scheduled” for a September release PS3 gamers can look forward to getting Broken Steel first which lifts the level cap to 30 and then the other chapters; Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt, Point Lookout and the most exciting; Mothership Zeta.

Its a shame its been delayed but i can only hope it means the DLC is released without any bugs that the PC and 360 versions have so prominently featured. Mothership Zeta sounds well worth the wait though with new weapons and teaming up with fellow abductees. Bethesda has confirmed that “this was always the last one we had planned to do.”

Relentless Software Developing Murder Mystery Game Exclusive to PSN

Source: ps3blog.net

Blue Toad Murder Files
Relentless Software, developer of the popular Buzz franchise, today announced that they are straying away a little bit from the trivia games to bring us a murder mystery game called Blue Toad Murder Files, their first self-publishing title. Not too many details about the game, besides it being an episodic adventure. According to the game’s official site, we won’t be seeing any real information until September.

Executive Director David Amor has told Joystiq:

We’re really excited to be self publishing this. The murder mystery genre has been a staple in TV, books and movies for years and we think we’ve come up with a great videogame interpretation.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, the game will be released in December. There is also an interview they had with David Amor and Andrew Eades available here.
