Despite SuperBot Entertainment and Sony parting ways out of nowhere, the DLC plans for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale aren’t being given the boot – at least for now.  After the arrival of the Fury Level and the arrival of Kat (Gravity Rush) and Emmett (Starhawk) as playable characters, PS All-Stars is set to receive yet another new level mash-up and two more characters.

Sony Ends Contract With SuperBot Entertainment, PS All-Stars Fate Uncertain

After taking to the stage during the PlayStation E3 2012 press conference, Sony is now showing SuperBot Entertainment the door in one of those ways akin to pushing out a would-be retiree out the door About Schmidt style.  Sony has announced that they’ve opted to cut their contractual ties with SuperBot Entertainment.

God of War: Ascension Multiplayer Impressions [Hands-On Preview]

If there’s one important thing that this generation has taught both gamers, developers, and publishers it’s that hot trends do indeed have a major impact.  In some cases it’s easy to push aside a trend as nothing more than a fad for that given moment, but at other times it’s hard to deny the growth something has received and how it almost immediately becomes part of the DNA of the industry for better or worse. 

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Final Boss Revealed + Intro Video

Sony may not be doing their best to promote PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale considering the game comes out in less than two weeks, but such a thing ultimately won’t have an effect on the overall quality of the product.  Debates about the similarities between PS All-Stars and the Smash Bros. franchise will likely continue until the planet Earth is invaded by aliens or suddenly goes boom, but the team at SuperBot Entertainment have done something that will likely please everyone who has been a PlayStation fan since day 1.

You wouldn’t think that’s such a thing is happening due to the lack of hype thus far, but a new God of War game is coming out five months from now.  Not a direct continuation of God of War III, Sony Santa Monica is nonetheless continuing the tale of sorrow, bloodshed, and anger in God of War: Ascension.  So far we’ve seen what the game has to offer in a brief single-player snippet and today we have more footage showcasing the new and somewhat controversial multiplayer mode.

Another megaton announcement has come out of Sony today that pertains to an upcoming PS3 game that has been constantly debated since it was revealed.  So far the reception PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has received has been mostly good but there have definitely been those out there who either haven’t been impressed with the game or are weary of it given how similar it appears to Nintendo’s Smash Bros. franchise.

Journey Collector's Edition Is Officially Announced [Video]

Earlier this year gamers were taken aback by Journey as it proved that video games can go in wildly unexpected directions yet still have that special something that makes for an entertaining experience.  Thankfully devoid of any vapid or condescending artistic touches that plague other games trying to be different or to make a point, Journey was thankfully greeted with open arms as it became one of the fastest selling PSN games of all time.

God of War: Ascension Features An Epic and Bloody Multiplayer Mode

The announcement of God of War: Ascension wasn’t exactly shocking, but today Sony has swept the rug from under us as they’ve announced that the fourth entry in the God of War series will feature multiplayer component.  At long last the God of War series has jumped on the multiplayer bandwagon and effectively lessen the already short endangered species list that is core single-player video games.

Datura Preview + Interview [GDC 2012]

Seeing the way video games evolve always interests me as there are at least half a dozen factors developers can approach when devising a game.  Should the emotional route be taken or should a different gameplay formula be implemented that however unorthodox it may be is ultimately something that will not only service the premise of the game but provide a fresh experience to gamers?
