    Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars, for the love of God put that in the list, although you could just add SARPBC 2 which is out at some point in the future and how could I forget Critter Crunch? Great fun in local co-op

    Is SARPBC any good in 1 player and local co-op though? I believe the online servers went down a while back.

    Yeah. They closed the CAC servers. Shame really because it was great fun.

    I'd recommend Riff: Everyday Shooter to anyone who likes a twin stick challenge.

    Also Rainbow Moon and Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls are supposed to be out this year.
  • Deleted user 30 March 2011 01:00:04
    Yeah, Riff is a good one. Lovely looking game but can get bastard hard in the later levels.

    I could be biased, but 'Cubixx HD' is looking pretty cool too:

    Right, I've included essentially everything that's been said minus maybe an exception or two - tell me what's good about it as I'm basing it on what I hear!

    Continue throwing games at the list if you love them. The more support there is, the better it's chance :)

    New survival horror game coming out in June. This is the PR:

    UNVEILING THE STORYLINE OF AMY – THE NEXT HORROR/ADVENTURE GAME FROM LEXIS NUMERIQUE

    Champs-sur-Marne, France – 7th April, 2011 – Lexis Numérique, one of the biggest independent game design studios in Europe, has today unveiled more details surrounding the storyline and gameplay balance of AMY. This unique survival game horror title, developed by a team headed by industry veteran Paul Cuisset, will be downloadable exclusively via PlayStation®Network in June.

    The game takes place in December 2034 when the gradual effects of global warming have spread diseases and natural disasters around the world. Amid this bleak scenario, the small town of Silver City in the USA’s Midwest suffers a near cataclysmic incident when it is stuck by an unidentified ‘comet’ from outer space. When lead character Lana regains consciousness, her world has descended into mayhem. Violent outbursts, fury, rage, wreckage and death; the world she knew seems to have become a living hell. As if struck by a mysterious virus, most of the people she once knew have now become part of a wild horde. Despite her wounds, Lana must run as far as possible to escape this nightmare. The viral process has also begun inside her but she refuses to become one of them. The presence of Amy, an enigmatic eight-year-old autistic girl with strange powers, who seems defenseless, will force her to make choices that will change both their lives. Both Lana and Amy will have to trust and help each other to escape various pursuers who take the form of infected humans, grisly creatures, military Special Forces and even other survivors.

    In AMY players will discover a unique and absorbing gameplay experience that features extensive cooperation with a supporting character. Taking the role of Lana, players will quickly learn that Amy is neither a specialised warrior nor a docile following character. Players will be able to use her small size and weight to reach inaccessible areas, ask her to do specific actions and utilise her mysterious ‘gifts’. But first and foremost, Amy’s trust will need to be won, perhaps even by putting Lana’s life on the line.

    This is a story-driven, survival horror game set in a close and tense atmosphere. AMY is based on a rich, addictive and twisted story-based scenario. Strong emphasis has been put in to the characters’ backgrounds and behavior but also on audio, sound design and a very unique use of camera settings to create emotion. AMY is one of the first games on PlayStation®Network to employ a level of detailed rendering, modeling and motion capture animation hitherto expected only from fully boxed product. The game offers an original stealth-action gameplay mix that does include fierce close combat, albeit sparingly. Lana and Amy are for the most part considerably weaker than their enemies, and tactical approaches to enemy encounters can often offer the most suitable solutions. As Lana has become infected by the virus, she too will mutate when exposed too long and will eventually die if not cured or protected by one of Amy’s special powers. But when displaying more viable infection, Lana can lure enemies and move amongst other infected without being attacked.

    AMY, is currently being developed at VectorCell studios, under the direction of Paul Cuisset, renowned French developer of classic games such as ‘Flashback’ or the ‘Moto Racer’ series. The game will be available exclusively for the PlayStation®Network in June 2011.

    ooh, interesting. Will keep this in mind, especially since it's got that Flashback bloke involved in it.
  • Deleted user 8 April 2011 01:13:50
    Saw some gameplay on another site. Looks kind of Sirenish but a bit ropey tbh. Might be a nice break from shooters and whatnot though.

    One for Move owners
  • Deleted user 13 April 2011 14:14:42
    Read on another site that an Ubi rep has confirmed Child of Eden will have both Move and 3D and will be out 4 to 6 weeks after the 360 version. Not sure how reliable that site is though so guess wait for an official announcement.

    Edit: CoE isn't a downloadable title is it?

    Nope it's retail (I did think it was downloadable at one point too :/).

    Nice thread HA. A mention for 'Malicious' over on the Japanese PSN store; it's a nice little game. Camera controls might send you bonkers; but it's stunning to look at.

    Gameplay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd_KXVt4-30&feature=related
  • Deleted user 13 April 2011 21:57:58
    Its been quiet, too quiet when it comes to Malicious. Was hoping now that Atlus is publishing downloads they'd sign it, ideally fund additional work to improve the camera.

    Sony Japan really could do with helping get more Japanese downloadables like this in development. Its exactly what PSN needs.

    It's very bare bones really VS. Certainly a degree a depth in the gameplay mechanics; health, combat and traversal. Doesn't feel like a tech demo either (as some have claimed) rather it lingers on the edge of stunning concept/unfinished game.

    The mechanics as stated are well realised, but it's as if the dev lost the belief that it could be a successful project and cut it back for PSN level of longevity and quality. Shame really, if they could sort the camera out and add more game; possibly more worlds and levels leading up to the bosses (ala Demon's Souls) it could've been something really special. But, I guess that's where El Shaddai will fill the void.

    For those who don't know, Malicious basically has you choose between a male and female character upon which you then have the oppurtunity to select 5 (or 6?) worlds. Each world is drastically different and features a boss and a ton of his minions. Aim is to kill everything, quickly. It has leaderboards etc, for speed and points. It's around 2 hours long.

    It's 800 yen, which I think is around £7.99. I bought a 1000 yen PSN card from PlayAsia (digital code), bought Malicious and the Demon's Souls Dynamic theme.

    Yes! Quite an enjoyable little game that one, nice mix of combat and puzzles and ends when it should.

    For those who missed the front page, Housemarque's Outland out on April 26th:

    Quite looking forward to it.

    Due for release in June is AMY, and there you'll find a trailer, here an explanatory article about the game.
    I disagree with IGN's assertion that there are influences of Silent Hill, much less Resident Evil, because its radiating (Forbidden) Siren to my eyes and ears very strongly.

    Enough of that, because the point of the game, that is a survival horror, is that you play a woman called Lana that's been infected by a virus and you're in the process of "becoming" a zombie.
    Amy, is your saviour, she's a small child that helps you to feel human. You can play stealthy, or engage in combat to earn needed collectibles (medicine needed to manage your condition, and more)
    The relationship between you and Amy, for example, is quite intriguing, and one of the most fascinating elements of the game. As you fight against your own body, which is slowly transforming, only being near Amy (or using medicine kits) can return you to your normal self. As zombies don't attack you when you're transforming, this adds the dynamic of trying to balance between when to heal and when not to-- all while keeping in mind that if you wait too long, you won't be able to return to normal (in other words, game over).
    You see the world, or rather your perception of it, alter as the process you're slowly succumbing to, takes hold. Amy is key to your survival and progress through the game, and can be instructed to protect her from the other undead. I think this is looking very promising and it may well be a top download pick, within the month of June.

    :o I should have noticed the press release, already there, before posting! Ah well, there's video and screens through the links in this post, anyway, to give a look. :)

    Nice. Thanks for that mate. Am now looking forward to getting stuck into it this weekend. Seen some youtube footage and it does look quite good.

    Looks really good, just hope it plays good too.
  • Deleted user 15 April 2011 19:39:53
    @Rauha Cheers for the thoughts, will grab it if its not signed by years end. But I wonder if the reason its inbetween a tech demo and a full game is because its a relatively new studio that couldn't get funding for the full game they originally wanted to make.

    Perhaps they decided that rather than give up on it, they went ahead with what they had and finished up as much as they could self finance.

    @Kenshin & Machetazo - thanks for the heads up on AMY (as well as Outland) really good to see a lot more original stuff is on the way for PSN this year.
