Journey Announced

Journey is a new game from thatgamecompany, the creators of PSN titles Flower and Flow. It’s an “online adventure experience”, not sure exactly what that means, but it looks totally awesome. Journey is currently scheduled for release on the PS3 sometime in 2011.

Atlus Announces Rock of Ages

My mind is blown right now, I don’t even know what to say. A mix of strategy and…controlling a giant rock, all while travelling through art history. I’m not sure if this is for PC, XBLA, and PSN, does “digital distribution” mean all platforms?

A rock-solid combination of deep strategy, rock-rolling action, and captivating art and music from throughout history!

Two castles stand opposed, bridged by an uneven, narrow pathway. One is yours, and you’re quite fond of it. See how the parapets catch the sunlight ever so stylishly? The other is your enemy’s; they’re a jerk, and their crappy crenellations are driving down your property values. Also, their castle sucks, justification enough to try crush it using an enormous rolling stone.

Get through their defenses and you’re one step closer to crushing their unsightly tower (see also: their hopes and dreams). But don’t take your turn for granite. Once your turn is over, your opponent’s begins…

Nintendo 3DS: The Games


The 3DS already appears to have a ton of support behind it, and not just from Nintendo. Besides new titles such as Kid Icarus and remakes including Star Fox 64, a slew of third-party games are coming from companies including Atlus, Capcom, and EA. At this point I already want one, bad.

I also noticed Marvelous will be releasing a game called BOKUJYOUMONOGATARI 3D. I need to find out more about this game, because the name alone makes it the most awesome game, ever.

Capcom Announces Two New Games At TGS

ghost_trick

Capcom announced at the Tokyo Game Show that Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes and Ghost Trick are both coming to North America. Ghost Trick looks pretty interesting, it’s a mystery adventure written by Shu Takumi (the main writer for the Ace Attorney series) and produced by Hironobu Takeshita (Mega Man 9). I’ve never heard of the Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes series before, though, should be interesting to hear more details.
