Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Is Getting All Patched Up

There's an issue in the PlayStation 3 version of Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow

Some users have reported a problem in which save data gets corrupted. The game asks you to hit the X button to "overwrite" and bam, just like that your save is gone. But Konami's on the problem. The publisher reassured fans that "a patch for the PS3 save issue affecting Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is..

Sure Hope You Liked Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 'Cos There's Probably Another One Coming

According to a report on Eurogamer Spain, MercurySteam's already talking about a follow-up to Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow

The soundtrack composer for the first game has told Spanish radio: “If you liked the first , hope that the second is even more spectacular.” We're going to assume it's already in the early stages of development. The engine's in place, yo. Sequel is good to go.

Konami's Classic X-Men Arcade Game On Its Way To The PlayStation Network

Konami's cult X-Men six-player arcade brawler is heading to the PlayStation Network

The game was announced during Marvel Games' panel at the New York Comic-Con event. The game will be ported to the PSN by Konami and will achieve its six-player cap via online multiplayer. There's no price or date information yet, but we expect more to follow over the coming months.

First Impressions: Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow on PS3 Demo

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow on PS3 Demo

It struck us pretty early on, that we're going to be way more engrossed in Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow's story than its gameplay

From a narrative perspective, the game's cinematics and voice-acting are top-notch. Even the dark, European gothic style is inviting. But the gameplay doesn't quite live up to the presentation's precedent. The demo opens with a medieval town eclipsed in a tropical storm..

Hideo Kojima Would Love To Bring A Game To Next Year's Tokyo Game Show

While Hideo Kojima had a game present at this year's Tokyo Game Show, it wasn't his game

Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow may well have been one of the best titles on display, but it's being developed by MercurySteam, and Kojima is only overseeing the development. That said, the Kojima Productions boss would like to announce something of his own at next year's show. The Metal Gear man Tweeeted: “I..

Don't Expect Motion-Controlled Castlevania on Move

Move cannot do whips or other objects

Move is a versatile piece of kit, with titles lined up that turn the plastic into everything from a beam katana to a lasso, but it seems it has its limitations. Sony recently held a press conference in Japan to explain the controller in more depth, detailing its ability to portray pens, torches, nets and...

Kojima "Wanted" To Develop 3D Metal Gear Solid 4 With Trophies, Doesn't Have The Time

What's the one thing you've always wanted in Metal Gear Solid 4? Trophies, right

Yeah, us too. 3D support would just be the icing on the cake, right? Totally. Well it nearly happened. In fact, agonisingly Kojima's revealed that he "wanted" to release a "Complete" version of the title. Sadly, he just doesn't have the time. We know. “I wanted to make a ‘Complete Version’ with..

Konami Bringing Travis Touchdown to PlayStation Move

Punk's not dead

The original No More Heroes on Nintendo Wii was a highly original but equally flawed game that never really found its audience on the machine. Suda51's homage to punk, trashy TV and laser katana-wielding assassins fell foul of some of the Wii's limitations, but the forthcoming PlayStation 3 version of the game will combine the...

SAW II: The Video Game Drops Just In Time For The Latest SAW Movie

They make a lot of SAW movies

We're told this year's movie is number seven in the series, but we reckon it's more in the region of 727. Either way, with a new SAW video game on the way it makes sense to tie things into the movie. Which is exactly what Konami are doing. They've announced that SAW II: Flesh & Blood will release on October 19th in the US. That's just a couple of weeks before the..

There's No Need To Slice A Thing In Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Not Even A Water Melon

Metal Gear Solid: Rising is a different type of Metal Gear game

It replaces seasoned protagonist Snake with Raiden, and switches tranquilizers for samurai swords. When all's said and done though, it is still a Metal Gear game. And that means that the stealth elements will remain in tact. In fact, according to Rising's producer, you'll be able to play through the game without ever needing to kill..

GamesCom 2010: Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow Hits Early October

Konami's dated their Dracula slaying foray into the God Of War genre, by whipping Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow with an October 5th and 7th release date for America and Europe respectively

Konami's added that the game will be presented with two DLC packs after release, both of which will further the game's narrative. Seems a bit dodgy to us, that. Still, Konami's touting that there's 20 hours of..

GamesCom 2010: Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 Kicks-Off In October

DanceDanceRevolution PS3 Includes Support For PlayStation Move, PlayStation Eye

We already know that DanceDanceRevolution PS3 will include support for Sony's motion controller, the PlayStation Move

But now we know to what extent. At its core, DDR PS3 is simply that: DanceDanceRevolution on the PlayStation 3. The game sports a track-list of 45 songs (25 from Konami's in-house artists, 20 from mainstream artists) which seems sort of stingey to us. Konami's promising plenty of..

Kojima Teases "Big" Pre-Tokyo Game Show Announcement

Presumably peeved at having to share the headlines with Ken Levine, Hideo Kojima's teased some "big" news of his own on Twitter [cheers Andriasang] -- basically, he's got something to say this weekend

The Metal Gear man revealed on Twitter that despite being ill, he wants to rest up and recover in time for the weekend, and his "big" pre-TGS announcement. He was keen to clarify that said..

DanceDanceRevolution's Coming To The PlayStation 3 (We Think!)

A mysterious image has popped up on Konami's Facebook page

The three-minute PhotoShop knock-up states, "You really wanted it, so we really listened!" There's an image of an old-school DanceDanceRevolution cover and a phat PlayStation 3, with a "+" sign between them. We're going to go out on a limb and guess what it all means: DanceDanceRevolution's coming to the PS3. The..
