Here is a demonstration from the E3 Sony press conference for a new release that might give Super Smash Bros a run for their money. All-Stars: Battle Royale is a fighting game based on gaining points by doing combos within a certain amount of time. It does have a lot of similarities to Nintendos Smash Bros, as you can see from the video. Each arena is from a different Playstation game, for the demonstration they are battling in the PS Classic, God of War. It’ll be available for PS Vita and Playstation 3. Some of the characters you can choose from include, Fat Princess, Parappa The Rappar, Sly Cooper, and Sweet Tooth. Think this is will be a flop or replace Nintendo’s version?
Assassins Creed III Liberation has been unveiled for the PS Vita. The game takes place in New Orleans and looks incredible when you consider that this is a handheld game. In this installment you’ll be taking control of a female assassin named Aveline and she looks to be just as badass as Altaïr and Ezio of previous games. Though edited together the footage does seem to reflect actual gameplay, and happily there don’t seem to be any compromises to the movement and play style we’ve come to expect. I can’t wait for this to hit Vita on October 30th.
Sony has just announced that starting this summer PS One Classics will be playable on the PS Vita. Better yet this will kick off with fan favorites Tomb Raider and, wait for it… Final Fantasy VII! This is great news for the struggling handheld and should provide a much needed incentive for some of us “nostalgic” gamers to give the platform a shot. I picked up Legend of Dragoon when it launched on PSN awhile back and would love to have that experience on the go.
IGN has posted a video featuring a look at the major monsters you’ll be facing off against in the upcoming game Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock by SuperMassive Games. The video gives you a good look at not only the ever-present threat of the Daleks, but also Salurians, the Silence and the Cybermen. They also let drop the time periods you’ll be visiting over the course of the game. While the game has been moved back from its original March release to April and now (fingers crossed) May, I’m no less excited to have a go as the Doctor and River in this adventure.
The animation of the Salurians is especially nice looking with that very creepy predatory head motion of theirs. The Daleks sound spot on and the Cybermen still seem to be complete jerks. The game will be releasing on PSN for both the Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita with a physical release only in Europe.

Last year Square Enix announced the remake for their wildly successful Final Fantasy X, which first appeared on the Playstation 2. The re-release will signify the games tenth year anniversary.
Final Fantasy X was the first Final Fantasy game to replace the active time battle (ATB) with a new turn-based system, feature voice acting, introduce a new leveling system, and the first in the series to have a direct sequel with dancing pop stars (oh la la!) due to its popularity.
Other than clearing up a rumor about the game being a remake, no new information has been reported since the announcement last September during Sony’s Tokyo Game Show press conference. Turns out it’s going to be remastered in HD, leaving people in question of a future release date. The remaster will be available for PS Vita and Playstation 3.
Like other Square Enix games I will be anxiously awaiting more information. Hopefully this post will indulge you for the time being.
