Quell Memento on PS Vita

Quell Memento is intended to feel familiar, and to evoke feelings of nostalgia. After all, a game called Memento is always going to be about memories! For this reason, we wanted all the elements to be recognizable from the real world (water droplets, pearls and roses, for example). This would mean, we felt, that the player is able to establish the rules of play quickly, because they know that a pearl is valuable, or that a thorn will likely burst a droplet.

GRID 2 - Extended Multiplayer Trailer

Game Intro
The race returns in the highly-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, BAFTA award-winning Race Driver®: GRID which set new standards for damage, AI, visuals and introduced Flashback, the time rewind feature now adopted by many racing titles. GRID®2™ will raise the gameplay and technological bar for motorsport gaming whilst remaining true to the series' core value that sets it apart from the competition – it’s all about the race.

Players will be invited to be fast, be first and be famous as they feel the aggressive exhilaration that lies at the heart of the GRID racing experience. In career mode, players will journey to the top of a new, ever-evolving world of competitive motorsport that challenges players to perform in exhilarating events across three continents.

GRID 2’s Race Immersion Technology
Bring alive the experience of driving a stunning selection of the world’s finest and most exciting, personality-packed cars like never before. The new TrueFeel™ Handling system delivers accessible, yet challenging to master edge-of-control racing and players will feel the tension, adrenaline, lights, noise and action of the race through the ‘lens of a movie director’ with blockbuster style and dramatic VFX.

Across a diverse range of white-knuckle events, intelligent AI opponents will push players’ driving ability to the absolute limit and deliver high-impact, relentless racing starring heart-stopping ‘wow’ moments, enhanced by next-generation damage that is sensational in real-time and jaw-dropping in replays. Once again, Codemasters Racing will set new standards for what can be achieved in the genre.

GRID 2 will redefine what racing games can achieve online. A rich multiplayer feature set with a progression system that is entirely distinct from the single player career challenges players to blaze their own trail to global domination. Deep levels of customisation, flexibility and connectivity are designed to deliver the most extensive and exciting online experience in the genre, enhanced by full integration with RaceNet, the online extension for Codemasters Racing games.


Check out an extended trailer showcasing the multiplayer in GRID 2.

Pandora's Tower - Extended Trailer

Take an extended look at the awesome RPG that gamers outside Japan have been waiting years to play.



Pandora's Tower, known as Pandora's Tower: Until I Return to Your Side (パンドラの塔 君のもとへ帰るまで  in Japan, is an action role-playing video game developed by Ganbarion and published by Nintendo in Japan, Europe, and Australia for the Wii video game console.

It was released in Japan on May 26, 2011, April 12, 2012 in Australia and April 13, 2012 in Europe. In January 2013, Xseed Games announced they would publish the game in North America in April 2013


About:
The game is set on the continent of Imperia, a land once divided into 10 Kingdoms (during the course of the game there are 9 because one kingdom was taken off the Vestra (its people) by the king of Elyria). It is the year 511 of the Unified Era, which began after the War of Unification ended. A new war, the War of Independence, is occurring between Athos, Certes and Thena against Elyria and the other Kingdoms for independence from Imperia.

The game is mainly set in the Wastelands of Okanos in the Kingdom of Elyria. In these Wastelands, there is a large chasm called "The Scar", which is only stopped from growing bigger and engulfing the world by the Thirteen Towers, suspended in the middle of the valley by twelve chains connected to the surrounding cliffs. These Towers are where Aeron must collect the Master Flesh required to cure Elena of the curse.

Characters
The player assumes the role of a 22-year-old protagonist, Aeron (Voiced by: Susumu Chiba (Japanese), Ryan Philpott (English)), a taciturn former soldier of Athos. Elena (Voiced by: Mamiko Noto (Japanese), Charlotte Sanderson (English)), an 18-year-old girl who is friends with Aeron and a strong believer of the fictional Aios religion, was cursed when monsters attack the kingdom after she was chosen to sing at the Harvest Festival. Throughout the story, Aeron and Elena were assisted by a Vestra merchant named Mavda (Voiced by: Ikuko Tani (Japanese), Ann Beach (English)) — she gives Aeron the Oraclos Chain needed to lift the curse on Elena.

When developing the characters, director Toru Haga wanted players to feel related to Aeron, and he was developed to become not too outspoken or assertive. Elena was made so that players would genuinely consider wanting to save her and not consider her a burden. Mavda was based on cynical fairy-tale wizards and carries her husband around at all times. The developers decided to focus on these three characters and not expand the protagonists
