Summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to. To keep your summer fun going, we’ve selected four games launching over the next four weeks to be part of PS Vita Summer Select, our new PlayStation Store event. PS Plus members will receive a 20% discount on each game during its launch week, and — best of all — all four games are Cross-Buy for PS Vita and PS3.
Divekick is out on PS3 and PS Vita Tuesday! By now, many of you are starting to realize just how deep and competitive this game really is. Online ranked play is going to be filled with killers in no time, so to help you get a head start, we’ve compiled a few tips from the top 3 finishers at EVO 2013.
With Sid and Justin jetsetting to Germany, and our live PAX show looming, we pull out one last normal(ish) show for a while. All the new releases for 08/20 (Divekick!), a buncha voicemails, and The Last of Us Spoilercast Part 2 at the end. Enjoy.
Divekick’s roster continues to grow, and each new challenger is even more insane than the last. Of course, we recommend that you learn how to play using one of the original eight characters, but don’t let that stop you from trying out some of these advanced fighters.
Seeing a character is one thing. Playing as them is another. But really, what you want deep down, is to get to know each of playable characters in a fighting game. What are their motivations, birthdates, likes and dislikes? Without this knowledge, how can you form the emotional bond needed to find success in Divekick?
We’re back, well-rested after last week’s GDC, and ready to return to our regularly scheduled Blogcasting. This week, we considered spoiling BioShock Infinite (we’ll save that for next week), gushed about the simple-yet-sensational Divekick, and interviewed industry luminary Keiji Inafune. All this, along with next week’s new PSN releases, a selection of 100% organic listener tips and voicemails, and much more.
Talk of Divekick at GDC last week was impossible to ignore, but how does it actually play? The game’s minimalist design invites skepticism, but rest assured: this is a deeper, more addictive experience that you might imagine. Divekick shrugs off the fighting game genre’s longstanding barriers, creating a sleek, streamlined competitive experience — it’s the primordial essence of what makes fighting games fun.
