Sad News For PSP Go Owners

If you are one of the people who traded your PSP for a stylish PSP Go last year you won’t be getting to play Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. Well not in the near future anyway.

The latest game in the Kingdom Hearts series is set for release for UMD next month but the rumours have been confirmed by Square Enix that it wont be released on the Playstation Network – the only way PSP Go owners could play it. Although Square Enix only said, “currently no plans” so on the brightside that could change in the future.

Since the PSP Go was introduced nearly a year ago, pretty much every title has been released on PSN so this is kinda disappointing, although maybe this is the start of companies accepting that PSP Go is a failed experiment..?

For All You Mega Man Fans

The first Mega Man online trailer has arrived. Everyone thought the Korean MMO being worked on by both Capcom and and Neowiz would be a pedestrian affair. Although from this trailer, the pair have something a little more epic planned. Although the trailer doesnt contain any gameplay, obviously, but this adult-orientated Mega Man animated feature type clip is amazing. Hardcore Mega Man fans will note both Mega Man and Mega Man X characters squaring off together.

Teaser trailer after the jump. I would advise watching it at least once.

The Bible has turned into an MMO?

The Bible Online is a new MMO game and is the first to be based on the religious book. The game will be played out in numerous chapter releases, the first one being The Heroes, where you take over the sandals of Abraham and his descendants and lead the tribe of Abraham to the promised land, building villages and managing resources along the way.

The games sort of resembles Age of Empires, and in my opinion if you set aside the religious aspect of things and look on it as a storyline, this has potential to be a pretty good game.

Each chapter covers a book in the Bible and im actually pretty interested to see if this reaches the New Testament times. The browser-based game will kick off on September 6th.

‘Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One’ is announced

At Gamescom two days ago, Insomniac Games revealed their next title – Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One

Up until now, the game has been a one-player free-for-all where you play as one character at a time, but this time the game is all about co-operative play as you now control 4 players at once: the usual Ratchet and Clank are now joined by fan favourites Captain Qwark and Dr. Nefarious. This new arrangement means the camera is no longer positioned behind Ratchet, but is now a Director’s cam, constantly adjusting so as to frame all four characters. The camera change doesn’t just make sense, it opens up new opportunites for more dramatic shots and scenery. All 4 players will have to work together to complete various puzzles throughout the game.

Although Insomniac Games haven’t spoke much of the storyline, I’m sure there’s a damn good reason why these particular heroes are working together.

The game is still in progress, but set for release in the fall of 2011.

New trailer after the jump.

New ‘Heroes of Might & Magic’ Game

Although it’s been a four years since the last Might & Magic game, Ubisoft has officially (and finally) revealed a sixth game in the series at Gamescom yesterday, except this time its called ‘Might & Magic: Heroes VI’. Dramatic eh?

Despite a slight name change and being under a new developer (Black Hole Entertainment), the game itself happily sticks to its turn-based and real-time strategy.

The story takes places four centuries prior to Heroes V and follows a resurrected archangel set upon getting revenge on the Elder races. The only thing is he’s underestimated the human dynasty of the Griffin Dukes – you.

The game is set to be released for the PC sometime in 2011 and until then you can find new videos, screenshots and concept art at the Black Hole website.

‘Teaser’ trailer (hopefully) after the jump.
