Okabu centers around the conflict between two tribes – the Yorubo and the Doza. Many generations ago, a ideological rift tore the population into two factions – those that felt a deep affinity with nature and wanted to maintain a simple life in harmony with the environment, and those that felt that their life could be improved by harnessing machinery to exploit the land.
While the Yorubo dedicated their lives living harmoniously with nature, the Doza travelled to a far part of the continent, pursuing an industrialised existence and exploiting their environment.
As many, many years have passed, the Doza have exhausted all of their resources, and their hunger for raw materials has driven them out of their borders, in a search for fresh lands to devour. Their path of destruction has finally arrived on the doorstep of their distant cousins, the Yorubo, and the Doza have begun to enslave and imprison these peaceful people and tear apart the natural beauty of their homeland.
With hope fading amongst the Yorubo, the pollution from the Doza smog stacks has spread far and wide, eventually reaching the habitat of an ancient race of Cloud Whales, high above the ground. The pollution has begun to cause a great sickness, leading the elders to dispatch our heroes, the brothers Kumulo and Nimbe, to investigate the source of the pollution.
Okabu is part of the Only on PSN range of games we’ve already talked about AND a great opportunity for PS+ members to make the most of their subscription during october thanks to the 20% discount offered on said games for a limited time.
After the break you’ll find a new trailer for the game which introduces the four heroes you can play with in Okabu (Captain Monkfish, Picolo, Roki and Kat) each one with a different set of abilities to complement each other in this wonderful adventure.
The world needs saving… again.
But this time, it needs protection from an alien invasion right in the middle of a zombie outbreak, in a fantasy land somewhere in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, with World War II also involved somehow!
And there’s just one hero who can save us all. Unfortunately, he has something better to do, so it’s all up to you now!
Become one tough action hero, choose your favorite weapon and get ready for a thrill ride bursting with action – Race through all the levels. Kill everything and anything.
* 5 worlds you have definitely seen before in other games!
* Story mode, challenges, free run mode and over 30 awards to unlock!
* Great graphics and a pumping soundtrack.
* Tongue-in-cheek story and humor.
Someone already linked over to the news about Beyond Good and Evil seeing an HD release on PSN, but Ubisoft also commented on the DLC soon to be available for Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game as well as two other new PSN releases: From Dust and Outland.
While the delayed Fatal Inertia for the PS3 will benefit from the delay, it doesn’t look like the delay will help the PS3 port of The Orange Box any:
After spending a significant amount of time with a near final version of the PS3 game, it’s apparent that this version suffers from a number of technical flaws, which at best merely hinder game play and at worst make the experience downright unplayable. Framerate is a consistent issue throughout the Half-Life series of games included in The Orange Box. One moment you’ll be cruising through the game at 30 frames per second and the next you’ll be enjoying a slideshow of series protagonist Gordon Freeman cruising down the river. However, Portal suffers from no such technical hiccups and is on its way to being a pitch-perfect port of the spatial reasoning exercise. Due to a server connection issue, we were unable to get any time with Team Fortress 2.
Solution? Don’t buy the game. I was really looking forward to Team Fortress 2, but if it has the same issues that Half-Life has, I’m not buying.
