News: 5.1 Surround Sound Coming To PlayStation 3 Version Of Enslaved In A Patch

5.1 Surround Sound Coming To PlayStation 3 Version Of Enslaved In A Patch

We loved Ninja Theory's Enslaved a ton, but bizarrely the game shipped without 5

1 surround sound support on the PlayStation 3. Joystiq reports that the issue is soon to be fixed, so anyone holding out on picking up a copy of Enslaved due to the less than optimal sound conditions might want to reconsider now. "[The update] will be ready around the same time as the paid DLC, which will be..

Enslaved DLC To Be A Totally "New Experience"

Enslaved's out soon, and with many publications slaving over their reviews for the main campaign, Ninja Theory's gaffer Tameem Antoniades has turned his attention to the games DLC

It's something he describes as an "entirely new experience" in an interview with Destructoid, explaining that it is not simply a case of a "few extra levels". According to Tameem, the additional..

At One Point There Was Going To Be A CGI Enslaved Movie

Enslaved has literally shot to the top of our most-wanted list

The gameplay might feel a little automatic, but there's something about Ninja Theory's ability to create extremely cinematic experiences that has us hooked. We want to know what becomes of the lead characters Monkey and Trip. As such, the idea of a CGI movie accompaniment tempts us more than other franchises. Ninja Theory's boss Tameem..

TGS 10: We're Probably More Excited About Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Than You Are

Tekken's series director, Katsuhiro Harada, has confirmed Tekken Tag Tournament 2 during the Tokyo Game Show today

The game's set to hit arcades, but a console port will undoubtedly follow. The game involves Tekken and tagging. Namco's released a trailer but it seems all kinds of so-wrong-it's-right to us. Either way, we're properly stoked for this. We love ourselves some Tekken.

TGS 10: Project Dark Appears To Be The Spiritual Successor To Demon's Souls

There's something weird about Project Dark, the next Demon's Souls-esque project coming out of From Software

Despite the game's exclusivity in Japan, it will be multiplatform in the West. As such, Sony will not be undertaking publishing duties worldwide (as it was assumed they might with Demon's Souls 2). Therefore, the game will not have the title "Demon's Souls" on it. Which is weird,..

Enslaved: Odyssey To The West on PlayStation 3 Demo

The clock-hands are telling

It's late; we've finished writing for the day. But having tried out Enslaved: Odyssey To The West just moments ago, we had to get our thoughts down on digital paper. Ninja Theory's attempt at re-telling the classic Chinese novel "Journey To The West" has us hooked. It's been a while since we went into a game with so few expectations and came out with so many..

Europe's Enslaved Collector's Edition Is By-The-Numbers

Enslaved's collector's edition is fairly standard-fare stuff: you get a copy of the game, an artbook and the soundtrack

But that middle offering - the artbook - carries a little bit more weight when the source material is as pretty as Enslaved. We're stoked about the game — it honestly looks fantastic. We could have settled for an action figure of Trip in her "sexy robot" get-up though..

Listen To Ninja Theory Talk About Their Upcoming Title, Enslaved

It's always nice to hear people talk about something with passion, and it's hard to find a team more passionate than Ninja Theory

The British developers have been beavering away on Enslaved for some time now, and it's really shaping up nicely. It's taken us a while to get excited about Enslaved, but everytime we see a new chunk of the game we get on board just a little bit more. The game has been..

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Is A "Rebirth" For The Series

After yesterday's fantastic trailer, many have been wondering if Ace Combat: Assault Horizon would mark a reboot for the franchise

Namco's confirmed single-player and online multiplayer modes for the game, but details are pretty tight right now. The clip's pretty intense, with a quirky Twitter message stating..
