House of the Dead 4: Special’s remix level to make it to PSN port

SEGA has confirmed to the guys from Siliconera that they will be incorporating stuff from House of the Dead 4: Special into their PSN port of House of the Dead 4. If you ever played the Special version of House of the Dead 4, you’ll know that the biggest feature of the re-release is sitting on a chair that moves. It’s awesome. But obviously there will be no chair re-released for the port. So what could it be?

Most likely a remixed level that was featured, that includes G. You know you love G and want to suffer like him. Siliconera’s preview was positive and only thing they complained about was the low resolution graphics used for icons like reload and stuff.

House of the Dead: OVERKILL: Extended Cut – Crossbow Trailer

Today we’re proud to present the Grindhouse Crossbow trailer for The House of the Dead: OVERKILL – Extended Cut! Narrated by Jackson J. Jackson, CEO of Jackson J. Jackson’s Crossbow Emporium, these impressively scoped, extremely explosive lightweight portable crossbows are a great way to take out the mutant menace overrunning Bayou City. You won’t find higher-quality weaponry anywhere else – Jackson J. Jackson guarantees it or double your money back!

House of the Dead: OVERKILL: Extended Cut is exclusive to PlayStation 3 and built with the Move controller in mind. It’ll be released on October 25th, can’t wait to ‘asplode some zombies with the crossbow!

House of the Dead: Overkill Extended Cut to support retro and modern 3D

So you, like myself, don’t own a sexy brand new HD stereoscopic 3D. It sucks, you can’t experience some games in their 3D mode. But SEGA has you covered, since House of the Dead: Overkill will support anaglyphic 3D. That means you can use those crappy 70’s paper, red and blue 3D glasses. Now that is the real grind house experience.

I uploaded a few screenshots, if you have some of those 3D glasses lying around, you can view them in 3D. If not you can view them anyway and type in the comment section how much you hate 3D.

Also confirmed in the press release (which will be attached to the post, after the jump) you can use a regular dual shock controller if you want! It supports Move for those that own the add-on.

PS3 exclusive House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Edition level revealed

[Yes, its called “Creeping Flesh”]

The first exclusive level had you playing as Varla and Candy, this second level does too. This time you find yourself in a local slaughter house.

The slaughter house will feature new mutants with extra flesh on them, thus they will be able to take more gunfire. Not to mention the whole slaughterhouse seems to be made up of flesh, so its looks like a meat wall. Carnivore delight.

SEGA does give us a tease at the boss, known as Meat Katie, a cleaver wielding cow stuck in a meat factory. SEGA teases that you will need a lot of good reflexes, steady aim, and perseverance, to beat this melee wielding super cow.

SEGA have also confirmed that the title is a ‘exclusive’ Playstation Move title. Meaning you will need Playstation Move to play it, unless its a mistake. The game hits store shelves in North America on October 25, 2011.

House of the Dead Overkill: Extended Cut reveals first exclusive level

House of the Dead Overkill: Extended Cut was said to have a ton of new content, which also includes new stages. This first one to be revealed is called “Naked Terror”. You have to shoot your way through a stripper bar, killling exotic dancers and biker mutants.

But that isn’t all: the level has you playing as Varla Guns and her exotic dancer friend Candy, both of which were only NPCs in the last release.

House of the Dead Overkill: Extended Cut is coming exclusively to Playstation 3 on October 25th in the USA. Are you ready?

Review: Virtua Tennis 4 (PS3)

SEGA’s lovable arcade franchise returns, this time with the original series creators behind the development. Many fans have been asking how much new things the team could bring to the table, after already having 2 Virtua Tennis releases on HD consoles this generation. Well, let’s crack open this review and see how the game stacks.

Virtua Tennis 4 Move demo hits PSN today

SEGA already released a Virtua Tennis 4 demo right before PSN went down. That demo didn’t have Move support, they promised that in the upcoming months they would release a Move demo for the game. Now its been months, they plan on delivering today.

SEGA has released two demos on PSN and a mini game on Playstation Home. I hope the game sells enough on PS3 to make up for the exclusive content. (including 2 players, 2 mini games being exclusive).

Overkill: Extended Cut to get 60% more content

The port of the highly successful The House of the Dead: Overkill is to get a large amount of new content. Destructoid confirms that the Extended Cut is due to not only have new levels as confirmed beforehand, but new zombies, weapons, and even audio tracks. There has also been a new mini-game added that occurs during cutscenes. It is safe to assume that those who are thinking of double dipping for this version can be justified in knowing that they will not be buying the same game twice.

Fresh from SEGA PR, and in all caps, comes the announcement that the Wii hit House of the Dead: Overkill will be rereleased to the PS3 and Move in 3D under the name of “House of the Dead: Overkill – Extended Cut”. Frankly, I thought is was a joke email at first, and after reading it I got a little dizzy. Perhaps because I now wonder how many other Wii titles might hit HD consoles. Check out the press release after the break.

Virtua Tennis 4 – Gameplay Trailer

That boat stage is absolutely beautiful, very blue, very Sega.

I stand by what I’ve said time and time again; there is no better tennis series than Virtua Tennis! Whilst VT2009 kind of dropped the ball. (Pun, lol) the other games in the series have all been really very good, including the amazing Dreamcast games and VT:World Tour on the PSP.

Virtua Tennis 4 is just as good, if not better! The world tour mode has been revamped and is really something special, and whilst the Kenect controls are a bit hit and miss, the Move controls are perfect and beat Top Spin’s efforts hands down.

Then there is the always welcome, always great fun mini games that for someone like me who isn’t a big fan of tennis add so much to the package and is fun to play with the girlfriend and family.

Virtua Tennis 4 UK Launch Trailer

It’s the Virtua Tennis 4 UK launch trailer! This trailer focuses mostly on the PS3 version and its Move control scheme. However, rest assured that the game will also be available with the usual controller based scheme for PS3, Xbox 360 (with Kenect) and Wii.

Being developed by the original VT development team in Japan gives me high hopes for this game and with a £1 million marketing campaign it seems Sega do too!
