Nis America has just decided to share in the great news about two brand new offerings that will be released in 2013. The first one is Hyperdimension Neptunia™ Victory, a game that will be an exclusive for the PlayStation®3 and that is set to release during Spring 2013 in North America (and Europe!).
Neptune reprises her role as the self-aware main character and meets characters new and old after getting transported back to the ’80s version of Gamindustri. Prepare for a refined and even faster-paced battle system! Fans of the Hyperdimension Neptunia series will be able to immerse themselves even deeper into the mythos of Gamindustri with Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory.
On September 25th, we will have three ways to experience Starhawk on PSN. First, the full edition, available for $39.99. Second, the Starhawk: Multiplayer Edition, including all updates, available for $19.99. Last, is the Starhawk singleplayer campaign, free for PlayStation Plus members.
Greetings PS3Blog.net! Clint here and yes you read that title correctly! Due to some personal issues, we have an opening for the podcast. If you’re a regular listener, or a fan of gaming in general, why not give it a shot?
The requirements are simple really, all you need is Skype with a good internet connection and a decent microphone. Typically we have recorded the podcasts on Wednesdays at about 5pm PST, but that date and time can be negotiated if you’re interested and have scheduling issues.
Way of the Samurai 4 takes place in the harbor town of Amihama, several years after the arrival of the “black ships” from the West ended Japan’s long history of cultural isolation. Amihama’s downtown area has been converted to a “Little Britain,” complete with European-styled buildings occupied by adventurous foreign settlers. Not everyone welcomes these new residents, though, and three distinct factions with opposing ideals begin to take shape. It’s up to the player – a wandering samurai whom fate has drawn to this conflicted land – to decide which faction to support, potentially shaping the course of Japan’s history.
Will you aid the traditional isolationists in their attempts to exile this potential threat to the Japanese way of life? Will you aid the shogunate government in their attempts to keep the peace and establish cordial (but limited) relations with the foreigner contingent? Or will you aid the foreigners in their attempts to establish silk trade and foster cultural exchange, even at the expense of a few traditions? Who will you support? Who will you betray?
Come join the denizens of this conflicted harbor for upscaled and updated versions of all the series staples you’ve come to expect from Way of the Samurai: branching storylines, multiple endings, event choices, character customization, and all the sword collecting, enhancing and modifying you could possibly ask for.
Become the ultimate bastion of virtue or the ultimate disgrace to humanity, and do it however you’d like. The choice is entirely your own…
If you’ve ever played Transformers: War for Cybertron, you would know that, for being a franchise based off of a different media, it was actually a pretty decent game. It’s a third person shooter that took place during a civil war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. It allowed you to transform between robot and vehicle on the fly as well, which was often required during parts of the campaign. A little over two years later, High Moon Studios and Activision have added another title to this franchise, with the subtitle of “Fall of Cybertron.”
With the relative success of War for Cybertron, a bit was riding on the shoulders of its sequel to make improvements to the franchise for an overall better game. The question a lot of us are left with is whether or not the sequel lives up to these expectations or suffers from mediocrity. Be warned, this review may contain spoilers.
