Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and believe us when we say that there are some incredibly talented teams included. We’ve now revealed seventy developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing ten more.
So much happened at the Tokyo Game Show that it’s easy to lose track of all the news. There were grown men crying, Samba Buses sliding, Dante looking hellish and Hell looking stylish; NIS embraced Hi-Res sprites and SEGA enlisted zombies. So basically we had a lot of shocks, surprises, some predictability and plenty of wow moments.
TGS, more than anything, showed that Japanese game development is still going strong today, despite rumours of the contrary. Japanese developers are still pumping out hugely inventive, aesthetically pleasing titles – the sort of games that make you say, “that must come from Japan.”
For this article, we have accumulate ten thoughts to take away from this year’s TGS. They weren’t all positive but most of them were…
It’s July 2009 all over again!
Will Sega announce Valkyria Chronicles 3 for the PS3? Let’s hope so.
The Internet can be a wonderful thing sometimes. Just having a quick browse around uncovered a beautiful piece of fan service for the sublime game Valkyria Chronicles.
It’s called (Valkyria Chronicles) Development Artworks, and puts all other art books to shame!
Massive Japanese publication Famitsu have listed their favourite games on the Japanese PlaySation Store.
At the top of the pile sits Valkyria Chronicles 2 then second is Phantasy Star Portable 2, both available on the PSP. Coming in at third place is Wizardry: The Labyrinth of Lost Souls, the highest rated PS3 title.
Famitsu also list their favourite PSOne classics with Final Fantasy VII unsurprisingly taking top spot.
Many of the selection are sadly not available in North American and even fewer make it as far as Europe. Are we missing out?
The fourth DLC pack for Valkyria Chronicles hits the PSN on February 25th!
There’s a certain tension in the air here at Attitude Towers. The normally carefree (or slightly bizarre in the case of Danny_D) banter has been replaced by hushed, worried whispers.
You see, there are Kittens in the Tower today. This generally wouldn’t be any cause for concern – kittens are cute right?
But these kittens have a penchant for shooting, and routinely sharpen their claws – step forward the Kamikaze Kittens.
Love Valkyria Chronicles? Do you want the series to return to the PS3?
SEGA has recently released a new comment on the PlayStation Blog hyping fans up for a possible continuation of the series on the PS3.
What’s the catch? Just buy Valkyria Chronicles II for the PSP, of course!
Is this just another tease from SEGA?
Commenting on the torrent of responses to a Valkyria Chronicles II (PSP) post over at the official blog where fervent fans of the original decided to hijack the thread and bark on about those missing Trophies once again, Sega’s Aaron Webber had something interesting to say about the now fabled Valkyria Chronicles update. And, guess what folks, it could happen.
Fans of Valkyria Chronicles unite! SEGA has announced that more DLC is on the way and that the latest additions are coming as a ‘thank you’ to the game’s fan base.
Popping up in the latest edition of leading Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, it would appear that Sega have not been too disgruntled by the early sluggish sales of luscious strategy RGP Valkyria Chronicles and are planning a sequel.
Considering the game is an unappreciated gem and is finally getting the recognition it deserves, we’re not that shocked.
However, what did take us by surprise is that it’s currently only planned for the PSP.
When a much hyped game doesn’t receive the initial sales its publisher anticipated, there’s always the fear that it will quickly be forgotten about; relegated to the ranks of “We tried something different, it didn’t do too well, we’re moving on.”
Not so with Sega who, recognising that lush RPG Valkryia Chronicles is a quality product with a fervent fan base, are continuing to produce new and exciting DLC. With a number of packs already available, we now have news that another download is on the way.
We admit it. We are biased. Biased towards good games. There, we said it. Posted in the infinite depths of the internet for generations and generations. And another thing, we think that Valkyria Chronicles is a good game. More on that later.
If you share our feelings about Valkyria Chronicles then why not show your allegiance and vote for your favorite comeback story of 2009 in the 27th Annual Golden Joystick Awards?
Talk about a comeback story. After less than optimal global sales for the stellar looking (and stellar playing) Valkyria Chronicles we received great news from the SEGA America Blog. Thanks to all the hard work from the hardcore fans (this humble PS3A cast included), and last week’s DLC release, Valkyria Chronicles is now one the top PS3 games both the United States and Japan.
But how big of an impact could a five month old game have on the American and Japanese markets?
It seemed only yesterday that we were telling you about some new DLC for perpetually under-appreciated and allround excellent RPG Valkyria Chronicles. OK, it was actually last month but who’s counting?
Three new DLC packs are coming for Sega’s RPG gem Valkyria Chronicles.
With new missions on offer and the ability to make the game harder, will this convince you to take a chance on this neglected neo-classic?
We take a look at the state of PS3 in Japan. With some big games coming out and a run in the hardware charts has Sony finally turned the corner in terms of the flagging success of the console in the region?
