Dishonored

Dishonored is available today on the PlayStation Store, and if you pre-ordered it you should have received your dynamic theme. There are a few other PS3 full games out today, including Birds of Steel, Naughty Bear, The Testament of Sherlock Holmes and a Devil May Cry HD Collection (complete with Trophy support). Another fine addition to the PS Store is the next installment of The Walking Dead episodic adventure. Fans of the series will be happy to hear that Episode 4 – Around Every Corner, is now available.

The latest game to hop on the Cross-Buy trend, if you purchase Retro City Rampage on PSN or PS Vita, you’ll be able to download the other version at no additional cost. Although there are only a few PSone classics being added to the PS Vita store this week, there are several other PS Vita titles releasing today including Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock, Spy Hunter and Sunflowers.

Launch Trailer: Retro City Rampage on PS3, PS Vita Tuesday

Sid Shuman's Avatar + Posted by Sid Shuman on Oct 08, 2012

After months (years?) of anticipation, the big moment is almost here: VBlank Entertainment‘s long-gestating 8-bit open-world homage Retro City Rampage comes to PS3 and PS Vita tomorrow on PSN, complete with the ever-coveted Cross Buy and Cross Save features. Let’s give the freshly released launch trailer a looksee!

If you’ve never heard of Retro City Rampage, a) shame on you and b) I scarcely know where to begin! Imagine jamming all your favorite 8-bit games into a sprawling open world ala Grand Theft Auto and you’ll have a rough sense of this game’s special brand of pixelated magic. Retro City Rampage has more than 60 Story missions that span driving, stealth, platforming, shooting, swimming, and questing (just to name a few) as well as 40 Arcade challenges if you’re in need of a quick release.

See Retro City Rampage in Action on PS Vita

Brian Provinciano's Avatar + Posted by Brian Provinciano on May 21, 2012

As I announced in the last blog post, Retro City Rampage is coming to PS3 and PS Vita! But today I bring more great news…

Recently in Toronto we held an amazing event called PlayStation <3 Canada to promote and support Canadian indie game developers. In attendance were us here at Vblank Entertainment, Drinkbox Studios (Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack), Queasy Games (Sound Shapes), ][ Games (Dyad) and more. It was a blast! For me, the highlight was finally giving fans a chance to see and play the PS Vita version of Retro City Rampage for the first time. I’ve been going on for a while about how amazing it looks on the PS Vita, and now you can see what it looks like for yourself.

While listening to PlayStation Blogcast in the weeks following GDC, I made a sudden realization: There are a lot of Canadian indie developers working on PlayStation titles right now.

With that realization, the PlayStation.Blog staff began planning a trip to Toronto to meet with Drinkbox Games (Tales From Space: About a Blob), Queasy Games (Sound Shapes), ][ Games (Dyad) and other indies working on PS3 and PS Vita games. Our friends at Sony Computer Entertainment Canada suggested that we invite the media and, well, we thought it only fair to include our Canadian fans in on the fun. That means you!

Retro City Rampage is Coming to PS Vita and PS3

Let’s get right to it — Retro City Rampage is coming to PS3 and PS Vita! I couldn’t be more excited to finally share the news. For those not familiar with RCR, it’s an over-the-top open-world crime game that combines everything you loved in classic games and mashes them up into a “toon town” of nostalgia and parody. Steal cars, and then jump on pedestrians for big shiny coins. Collect power-ups and outrun the law while rampaging the city, shooting a light gun or swinging your bionic arm.

Fans of Grand Theft Auto will feel right at home with RCR, but the missions extend far beyond driving and shooting. They fuse classic gaming and modern mechanics to span virtually every genre, from stealth to platforming, adventure, rhythm and more—there are even underwater levels.
