Atlus has announced a sequel to Trine, a puzzle / platformer. Looks pretty nice. Trine 2 will be available digitally Spring, 2011.
Timed exclusivity for the PSN sucks, but it still looks cool.
I can’t believe a) that’s all in-game footage and b) this game is for the Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network. I like it, seems to be a little bit Populus, a little bit Black and White, maybe even a little Doshin the Giant. Whatever it is, it looks amazing. And it’s being developed by Éric Chahi.
I love how Capcom takes the retro look even into their commercials. If I saw that when I was a kid I would have wanted the game. And more locks on the door to my room. And a nude poster on my door.
Capcom’s latest retro Mega Man is out today for the WiiWare today and will be out March 11th on the PSN and March 31st on XBLA. Why three different days? I have no idea, maybe it’s more fun that way.

The Lost Planet 2 co-op demo is now available through the PSN!
PlayStation 3 fans rejoice! The Lost Planet 2 co-op demo is officially available via the PlayStation Network beginning today, September 24 2009. Squads of four will make their way through three playable missions in the lush jungle of E.D.N III collecting precious thermal energy from the bodies of the Akrid which inhabit the planet. With a huge arsenal of weapons and utilizing robotic Vital Suits, players will encounter Akrid of all shapes and sizes leading up to the desperate battle against the enormous Category G Akrid which has made appearances at E3, Comic Con, and GamesCom.
The demo is a brief glimpse into the world and possibilities of Lost Planet 2, highlighting the range of weaponry available to players while showing off the high definition graphical capabilities of MT Framework 2.0, the latest version of Capcom’s proprietary 3D game engine. The first generation of MT Framework powered Capcom games like Dead Rising, the original Lost Planet and Devil May Cry 4, while an updated 1.5 version made possible the award-winning visuals of Resident Evil 5.
A new trailer from TGS for PixelJunk Shooter (formerly known as PixelJunk 1-4). The game is looking pretty nice…seems similar to Solar Jetman, which was a totally awesome game.
Today Sony announced that their rumored PlayStation 3 Slim will be in stores in early September. Kaz Hirai made the annoucment and noted that it will be have all the same features as the current PS3 and comes with a 120 GB drive. The big difference is it’ll be slimmer (obviously), 33% percent smaller and 36% lighter.
The PlayStation 3 Slim will retail for $299 in the U.S. (299 euros, 29980 yen)
Capcom will be releasing a mix tape alongside their Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 release, featuring a number of well known hip-hop artists. That’s pretty awesome, but what’s even more awesome is you can grab a limited edition full-size vinyl of the album. At Comic-Con. Which is on the wrong coast for me.
