Crescent Pale Mist Up For Release on PSN Next Tuesday | PS3Blog.net

The new game from Rockin’ Android and Sony Online Entertainment, Crescent Pale Mist, will soon be available at the PSN Store thanks to Tuesday’s update. As logic would dictate, it’s a PSN exclusive since SOE is involved and Sony releasing a game in another console was either three gens ago or would take place three gens ahead (predictions, predictions; you have to remember the 90’s and tell me if you still think it couldn’t happen).

Basically this offering is a cross between a fast-paced platforming 2D action game and a bullet hell shooter. The developer refers to it as a 2.5D game, my guess being that it says so because it uses polygons instead of being of the hand drawn variety (as was the case with Muramasa on Wii, a game rumored to be set up for launch on the PS3 in the first months of 2011 in Japan) The trailer available at the link gives you a better idea about how the game works but for me it just seems a bit too hectic, even for a bullet hell game. Maybe it has something to do with watching the action in a small PC monitor instead of on a big 40″ 1080p TV.

The game is priced at a budget workable and PSN Store friendly $5.99 (did you notice you save 1 cent every time you purchase a game on the PSN store over the same game at XBLA? Sony really, truly loves us! Buy 100 games, get a dollar for free!) so if  bullet hell games are your cup-o-tea the transaction total asked for it is low enough to even give it a blind go.

  1. lol, it kinda looks like a PS2 game

  2. Well, for $6 we can’t be really picky. But when we can get something like Ratchet and Clank Quest for Booty for $10…

  3. Nice post EdEN, but It looks like it should be on your Wii.. 😎

  4. Super Mario Galaxy, Monster Hunter Tri and Jett Rocket said hi. 🙂

    All in all the game does look a bit too hectic and weird for my taste but the price isn’t that high so who knows.

  5. R&C:QFB was $15 when it was released, BTW. And yes, I bought it day one. Was a bit disappointed, as it was really a tech demo or even a sort of beta test of the new omniwrench mechanics that would be used to better effect in R&C: Crack in Time. Still, it was a nice miniature R&C fix while waiting for the next full-fledged installment of the series.

  6. I bought Quest for Booty when it was half off on the PSN and for that it was a great bite-sized game. At $15 it should at least have given us a platinum.
