All Articles: Catherine
The puzzling Catherine beguiled Atlus’s biggest fans back in 2011. It’s wild combination of relationship building, puzzle solving, and terrifying imagery made it an instant classic. But players who missed it the first time around will get a second chance, as the publisher has announced plans to release an enhanced and expanded version of the game known as Catherine: Full Body.
This remake will further complicate Vincent’s love life with the introduction of an entirely new character named Rin. New puzzle sections connected to Rin will be included, as well as new storyline elements for both Catherine and Katherine.
Atlus will release Catherine: Full Body in Japan “next Winter” for the PS4 and Vita. The publisher has already confirmed an American/European launch will happen, but they declined to say which platforms it’ll be available for or when it’ll be released.
In the meantime, you can view the first Japanese trailer for Catherine: Full Body, which is available after the break. (more…)
Sony has pulled out another of their patented “kitchen sink” updates of the PlayStation Store. This week sees the release of three major PSN games (the long-awaited Simpsons Arcade Game, hitman game Shank 2, and multiplayer shooter Gotham City Impostors) as well as all three games from the Jak and Daxter Collection.
Speaking of the Jak and Daxter Collection, the complete package is available from the Full PS3 Games section as well as the sexually charged Catherine, tennis sim Top Spin 4, and the bricktastic Lego Pirates of the Caribbean.
Rounding out the new releases is the PS2 Classic SpongeBob SquarePants: The Movie. And don’t forget that The Simpsons Arcade Game is free to PlayStation Plus subscribers (as well as Final Fantasy V). Oh, and the first episode of “The Tester” season three is now available.
Yup, kitchen sink time. You can find out more about all these new releases after the break. And for a complete listing of all of this week’s new game add-ons, head over to the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
Welcome to Warp Zoned’s first ever Golden Pixel Awards. Sit back and relax as we reward the best (and worst) games of 2011 with accolades based on their rather unique accomplishments.
The Apocalypse List
The bombs have fallen, the zombies have horded, food is scarce, and you’ve boarded yourself up in a bunker that’ll stand for a hundred years. What better way to spend your time in “The Vault” than by playing Warp Zoned’s favorite games from 2011? It doesn’t matter if you call it a “Top Ten List” or “Our Favorites From 2011,” but these are the games we plan to keep playing even if there was no game industry to keep making games. (more…)
Steamy video game Catherine sold a staggering 200,000 copies in its first week of release, setting an Atlus record. How did Atlus celebrate? With a cake, of course.
Atlus’ VP of Sales and Marketing, Tim Pivnicny, told IGN: “Catherine has exceeded our highest expectations. It released last week to tremendous critical acclaim and fan response, bolstered by the release of a demo a couple weeks prior, and continues to generate discussion among fans for its mature themes, engrossing subject matter, and frantic, challenging gameplay. It is fitting, then, that Catherine can boast the largest launch in the 20-year history of Atlus, and continues to see strong sales at retail.”
We thought Catherine was pretty good. In fact, I am wearing Vincent’s boxers as I type this.
Catherine Review: Do Cheaters Dream of Neurotic Sheep?
Catherine is the latest game from the twisted minds over at Atlus, who are responsible for the Persona series as well as a plethora of other bizarre games. An amalgam of strange and uniquely Japanese concepts and story twists, I assumed Catherine would either go down in the history books as a revolutionary game, or fall short and be simply categorized as weird. It turns out to be more of the latter than the former, but still has many redeeming qualities – and compelling reasons to play. (more…)
It’s a heatwave and it’s only going to get hotter when Catherine is released in stores next week. The “infidelity sim” will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in a standard edition, an alternate cover version and a “Love Is Over” deluxe edition that comes complete with the main character’s clothes and a body pillow depicting the hot blonde he hooks up with. Like I said… It’s going to get hot, hot hot.
Also available next week is Pac-Man & Galaga Dimensions, a remixed compilation of two of the greatest 80s arcade games; The Sims 3: Town Life Stuff, another collection of goodies and gadgets for your Sims; and Wildlife Park Tycoon, a game that lets you unleash your inner John Hammond.
Japanese company Atlus is no stranger to both developing and publishing unusual games – they are, after all, the creators of the Persona series. Their latest game, Catherine, has been dubbed an infidelity simulator, and fits right into their niche of the weird and wonderful. Even after everything we’ve written about Catherine, I still wasn’t sure what to expect from the demo. I tried not to have high expectations, but even as elevated as they were, I was definitely not disappointed with what the demo had to offer. (more…)
Poor Vincent. Everything in his life seemed normal – he had his friends, his hang-out spot, and a girlfriend named Katherine. But as soon as Katherine starts pressuring him for marriage, strange things start to happen. This trailer shows one of Vincent’s sheep-filled nightmares, and also reminds us of the strange deaths of young men as reported on the news. The waitress confides to Vincent that she heard all the men who died are cheaters.
In addition to the above trailer, Atlus has announced that gamers who want a taste of Vincent’s trippy
breakdown adventure before Catherine‘s release date will be able to download a demo from the PlayStation Store or Xbox Live Marketplace starting next week.
I don’t know about you guys, but when Catherine launches on July 26, I plan to be wearing Vincent’s t-shirt and boxers while I play this game. I’ll scream into the pillow when I get too scared. Be sure to pre-order the deluxe edition for the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.
