Hello, PlayStation.Blog readers! I’m delighted to announce Surge Deluxe for PS Vita!

Surge Deluxe is FuturLab’s response to feedback received from top players on those leaderboards (and from the NeoGAF community). They demonstrated a deep understanding and appreciation for Surge that was way beyond anything we could have anticipated!

Strider Hands-on: Remember Your Ninja Training

Ryan Clements's Avatar + Posted by Ryan Clements on Oct 10, 2013

Amidst a flurry of snow and the lazy trundle of passing airships, Strider Hiryu blazes across the screen, cutting down any and all that stand in his way. This classic ninja hero returns in Strider, a rebirth of the side-scrolling classic made famous in late ’80s arcades. The new Strider, which launches in early 2014 for PS3 and PS4, enhances the fast-paced spectacle of the original with HD visuals, while preserving the frantic combat and momentum that long-time fans will fondly remember.

When we first sat down and got Orc Attack running about two years ago, our team realized we had created a silly, sophomoric game. I mean, it’s called Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion, so right there you know it’s going to be for the gamer that enjoys joking about farts and burps, and what happens when you combine them. We know that before games got a little too serious, and the lead characters all started looking like bald, meaty marines with green goatees, that there was a long line of fun, silly games that were wildly successful that are similar in concept.

Ryan Clements's Avatar + Posted by Ryan Clements on Oct 04, 2013

At first glance, Beyond: Two Souls and Heavy Rain seem to have more in common than not. Both games focus on intricate narratives and deep character development, highlighted by cutting-edge performance capture and dazzling digital sets. But on closer examination, Beyond: Two Souls, which launches exclusively for PS3 on October 8th, is a wholly unique creation with no obvious analogue.

Before work began on Fatal Frame III, I heard that PS3 would be launching soon, so I conceived this project as a compilation of the past games, and our final game for PS2. The first Fatal Frame used the Japanese horror technique of relying on the user’s imagination to create a sense of fear, while the second placed the emphasis on storytelling. For the third, we went with “fear lurking within the everyday” as the theme. In horror movies and such, the bedroom or bathroom are often where scary things happen, so we decided to try our hand and venture into these classic realms as well.
