We’ve already gotten ports of Dead Space Extraction and House of the Dead: Overkill… so now it’s time to bring two more on rails shooters to PS3! CAPCOM has just announced that ports of both Resident Evil Chronicles games will be given HD ports with Move support (well… duh!) for release at an unspecified date.
I already own ALL of the games mentioned in this post but for those of you that have yet to try any of these fine, fine games… what do you think about all the Wii to PS3 ports lately?
According to Amazon.fr, Ubisoft’s 2D platformer: Rayman Origins will be getting the collector edition treatment. The story follows Rayman and his friend Globox as they fight Darktoons and other evil creatures that have infected the Glade of Dreams. The Game was officially announced back in E3 2010 as a downloadable title for PSN and LIVE, later in E3 2011 the developer announced expanding the title to a full retail game to be release for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, 3DS and PS Vita.

It is time for us to acknowledge the fact that gorgeous, 2D games are NOT the norm on the PSN store and never have been. That IS weird considering that the PS3 is veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery capable of giving us great visuals at 60 fps for 3D games and if that power was to be used for a 2D game… well, one can only imagine the results. But fear not as Ratloop (think about it for a second) has heard our concerns and is hard at work on bringing us a bit of chicken to the table.
Hard. Boiled. Chicken.
… but not from Insomniac Games. They could support Sony, if there is enough interest, though. That’s what the Burbank-based independent studio twitted a couple days ago, in response to a possibility of a compilation of R&C PS2 games:
“We won’t make it, but we’d support Sony if they decided to do it!”
At first, I thought it should be a good idea playing with my favorite lombax and his fellow robot in high definition. Then, I just realized that I already played with the duo in glorious high definition, and three times! First, in R&C: Tools of Destruction. Then, the PSN title R&C: Quest for Booty (disc-based in Europe), and finally R&C: A Crack in Time.
What do you think? Should it be a good idea to bring back those PS2 titles? Or we should just move along and wait for a brand new adventure from Insomniac?
Ion has put up the web site for their new premium electric drum set for Rock Band.
This looks like a virtual drummer’s dream: very high end materials and everything is fully adjustable. Wow. The standard Rock Band drum kit is still very nice and much more affordable, but if you take drums seriously, and don’t mind the price ($300), this is perfect.
With the first Rock Band, Drums really took over as the most polished and realistic of the three instrument types. Now, they are really taking the drum experience up a notch.
Other instruments are harder to adapt to the Amplitude/Guitar Hero style formula, but I hope we see some high quality efforts like this.
