Dark Souls topped the Japanese sales charts this week, shifting a monstrous 279,567 copies
We're starting to wonder if Sony regrets not pushing Demon's Souls harder worldwide now, with success pretty much guaranteed in the West too. Sony's ICO & Shadow Of The Colossus Collection had a similarly strong opening, scooping up the second, 14th and 20th spots. EA's Shadows Of The Damned wasn't so..
Shadows Of The Damned director Massimo Guarini has left Grasshopper Manufacture to set-up a new studio
Guarini's upstart, Ovosonico Productions, will be based on "games, music and films with an attitude" according to the company's website.
Sony wants to educate Japanese gamers on the values of Western titles, and it intends to do so with an event dubbed the "World Game Project"
The initiative will see the platform holder bring a slew of hot Western titles to Japan's famous Akihabara district. Playable titles will include inFamous 2, Resistance 3, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Shadows Of The Damned. Yes, we know the latter was..
Over the last three weeks I've played two niche games which I thoroughly enjoyed
Neither of the games were particularly successful at retail, but both enhanced my appreciation of EA as a publisher. Alice: Madness Returns was scorned for being derivative and classical in design, while Shadows Of The Damned was dismissed because of some poor gameplay...
Shadows Of The Damned is getting rave reviews from all corners of the Internet
The problem is: no-one knows that the game is coming out. The reviews aren't unexpected — this is a game from Suda 51, Shinji Mikami and Akira Yamaoka after all — but it's disappointing to see such a collaboration of super-creative minds slipping under the radar so badly. In case you didn't know, the game's out today..
In this new Shadows Of The Damned developer diary, Akira Yamaoka and Suda 51 make silly faces while being dubbed by ridiculous voices
We speak for everyone when we say: "day one".</em>
We know virtually nothing about Grasshopper's Shadows Of The Damned, but we've had the game preordered for months now. How much more do you need to know beyond "Shinji Mikami" and "Suda51"? The game's even been scored by ex-Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka. Sure, we would have preferred the game to take a more psychological horror direction than the grindhouse style..
The release date of Shinji Mikami and Suda51's grindhouse horror romp, Shadows Of The Damned, has been pushed back a couple of weeks
The game was originally due out in early June, but has now been given a more firm June 21st date. The change has probably been implemented in order to avoid the E3 media vaccuum that's due to kick off at the start of the month. We've seen very little of Shadows Of The..
We're all over EA's Shadows Of The Damned
Not because it looks particularly fresh, innovative or originial, but because it's from Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil) and Suda51 (Killer7). Silliness is guaranteed.</em>
How much have we actually seen of Suda51 and Shinji Mikami's horror title, Shadows Of The Damned? Not a lot at all, but it's out in just a few months
EA's slapped a June 7th release date on the grindhouse-inspired game, creating a horror double-header alongside Alice: Madness Returns. Speaking at GDC, both Suda51 and Shinji Mikami fleshed out some of the gameplay details behind Shadows Of The..
When Shinji Mikami revealed he was working on a new PS3 title with Grasshopper's Suda51, we immediately jumped to all the wrong conclusions: survival horror, bonkers art-style, weird psychological narrative, awesome
Unfortunately, the reality of the collaboration, Shadows Of The Damned, has done nothing but disappoint us. Maybe our expectations were too high, but it just looks really bland. Check..
It's hard to judge a game based on a 90-second trailer
It's probably something we shouldn't do in the first place. But it's hard to not be disappointed by the long-awaited announcement of Shinji Mikami and Suda51's "horror" project; officially announced this morning as Shadows Of The Damned. Perhaps it's a matter of expectation. Shinji Mikami (of Resident Evil fame) and Suda51 (of Killer7..
