All Articles: Soul Calibur V

Thomas Was Alone, Dead Island: Riptide, Star Trek, more added to PS Store


Another big day for the PlayStation Store as indie platformer Thomas Was Alone, zombie melee-er Dead Island: Riptide, and movie tie-in Star Trek are now available to purchase with your download dollars. Like the rest of the games in Sony’s Spring Fever promotion, Thomas Was Alone is a Cross-Buy title, meaning you’ll be able to pick up the PSN and Vita versions in the same download.

Also available this week is Ubisoft’s World War II dogfighter, Blazing Angels 2: Secret Missions of WWII; the latest game in the Soul Calibur series, Soul Calibur V; Capcom’s standalone Dragon’s Dogma expansion, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen; and the retro shooter God Mode.

Finally this week, Sony has added a pair of Vita games, the ninja-riffic Draw Slasher and the ridiculously titled Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus R… I mean, seriously now… there are four extra modifiers in that title. Even Capcom won’t go that far.

Hit the jump for more details on all of these games and a few others (including a new PSP game!). And be sure to visit the PlayStation Blog for a complete list of this week’s new game add-ons. (more…)

Modern Warfare 3 fends off Final Fantasy XIII-2 in February 2012 NPD ranking

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 sits atop the NPD’s monthly list of bestselling games for the fourth month in a row. The shooter sequel managed to fend off new releases Final Fantasy XIII-2, UFC Undisputed 3, and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, which rounded out the top four. Two other new releases managed to make it into the top ten, Namco Bandai’s Soul Calibur V (at #7) and Sony’s Twisted Metal reboot (at #9).

The NPD Group didn’t list any Vita games in the top ten during its first month of availability. No 3DS games cracked the top ten either, for that matter.

You can find the complete list of February 2012 bestsellers after the break. (more…)

Soul Calibur V wants your name in the game

A tale of souls and swords… and you! Well, at least a name of your choosing. Namco Bandai Games America is holding a promotion that lets fans name a non-player character in Soul Calibur V, the next iteration in the weapons-based fighting series.

All you have to do is go to, fill out a character name and fighting style, and answer a few questions related to Soul Calibur. Some of the questions include your favorite tactics, whether or not you prefer online play, and they even ask if you think the game’s director, Daishi Odashima, is annoying. So if you’ve ever wanted to fight a character named “FUZZYDEATHBUNNY” who wields a snake sword, you have until 11 PM on August 5, 2011 to make that dream a reality.
