I'm so frustrated by the fact that Fat Princess has no split screen... I mean, this game was the obvious choice for a bunch of people playing hot seat, worms-like... I even organized some games with some friends that have the PS3 (the idea was 4 of us in each house so we could make a part-online part-hotseat party) for when it was launched... now I see it's online only. It's so dumb I cannot describe. Suddenly an obvious option for a social softcore game competes in my lonely time with the sorts of (incoming) great games like MW2, SC2 and Borderlands... in other words, I'll not buy it. Unless, of course, they add split screen in some incoming patch. When it happens I'll rethink. Maybe. Edit: Heck, even Borderlands have split screen! Edit2: OK, I got it, the game is GREAT. And it further saddens me for the lack of local multiplayer :P
SCEA's gluttonous royal makes her worldwide debut exclusively on the PlayStation Network this Thursday for $15.
Back in April, Sony gave away 250 beta codes to Fat Princess through a competition where prospective players submitted photos of themselves gorging on cake. It's the same activity players must do to the titular royal, who is fed cake, gains tremendous weight, and becomes burdensome to the player's opponents--who must successfully abduct the princess in order to win.
Now, gamers who aren't so gluttonously photogenic can look forward to playing the eating sim this Thursday. Today, the Official PlayStation Blog announced that the PlayStation 3 edition of Fat Princess will make its worldwide debut on the PlayStation Network on July 30 for $15. (A PSP version, Fat Princess: A Fistful of Cake, is due out later this year.) The announcement coincided with the publisher's 18-minute interview video with two of the game's developers--Chris Millar and Craig Leigh--from Titan Studios.
As outlined in GameSpot's beta-test preview of Fat Princess, the title features cute cel-shaded graphics and ultraviolent action. Two multiplayer teams hold a captive princess who can be fed until she is too fat to be abducted by the opposing team. The game features five classes--swordsman, wizard, archer, worker, and priest--and supports up to 32 players online.
I have to be honest, I played the beta for about 5 minutes and haven't touched it since. $15 is too much to lay down.
@ nerd_assassin No; the will be online, but there will also be practice in a gladiator-like arena, and also you can play a single-player skirmish against bots.
Here is the both the winner of the contest and the inspiration for this game http://media.photobucket.com/image/fat%20chick%20eating%20cake/jaikara/fat_lady_eating_cake.jpg
Ahhh finally the date's been announced! I've been eagerly watching for it for months (I missed the beta, grrrr). So for all of you who have been watching for this too, let's all gather together for a good time! Look for me, PS3 username is the same as my GS name! @TeabagChampion - feel the same way, I gotta find a feasable way to make it look like I'm sick on Friday lol.
awesomeness... now i have to figure out what to lie about so that I can call out sick the following day and stay home playing this title.
dont be upset if this game isnt playable online the first day. It seems NO game company has the abilty to have their servers prepared for the surge of players on day one.
@ wooooode Rag Doll Kung-Fu? Heehee.... My question is this: Is this thing only going to be a multiplayer game?
Not having a PS3 I'm glad about the fact that it's coming for PSP also. When it hits the shelves I'll be one of the first to pick up my copy! :D
The hype I think drove the price to $15. I will wait for the drop because every game I buy they have a sale a month later or give it away for free.
@BigBacon87 I'll admit this much: there are plenty of people that would lie on the internet. But honestly I really don't have the interest in appealing to people on a new article. I post because I felt like stating my opinion, but I can assure you I do have a PS3. While I know you won't believe this, you can hop on over to my gamefaqs account and see I've got a PSN account. In fact I was a huge PS2 fan, never owned an Xbox, one of the only major consoles I didn't purchase. The PS3 I purchased was the MGS4 bundle specifically for that game, but to get into the next generation. I have been sadly disappointed and went over the 360 which I purchased later. You're absolutely right Castle Crashers doesn't have 32 multiplayer, it has four, but if you read it closely you'll see I wasn't implying the number of people I was talking about fantasy melee, little characters, etc. The multiplayer is more closely related to TF2, with classes and whatnot.
It is one thing for Battlefield 1943 to be $15 as it is nice looking and in some ways could have been a retain release. However this game being $15 is unacceptable. I will buy it when it goes to $10. Remember you speak loudest with your wallet. Don't let these companies overcharge you. I am very, very excited for this game though. I hope it does well....when it drops to $10 that is.
Haha. Go figure as soon as I mention it the first hater shows up. @pwnzord you don't own a PS3. Quit lying about stuff it's not cool. You enjoy your summer of arcade all you like but you clearly haven't read anything about this game, does castle crashers have 32 multiplayer? No, im still glad we are getting it as it was the last xbla game I had any interest in that my PS3 didn't have (after worms and bomberman) but thats not the point.. the point is Fat Princess is gonna be epic, and you still don't own a PS3. Chump.
Back in the day I was looking forward to this game. But that was a long time ago. I may hook my PS3 back up and check out the demo, but I doubt I'll drop $15 on it, when there are other games just around the corner that are asking the same price for something that was, at least, released in a more timely manner (among other qualities). The blending of a TF style multiplayer with a castle crashers esque gameplay sounds interesting but shortlived. Summer of Arcade has a great many more titles than the PS3 has on the horizon, and I am for one not all that surprised given the support the system has seen recently.
Praise your preferred Higher Power! I was worried it wouldn't come till September but thank you a billion times over! I know will have been worth the wait.. there aren't even any haters posting in the comments section! That never happens! Here we go Thursday big time!
Better not be pulling my leg! I've been looking forward to this game since they announced it last year!
The game looks fun, but it's pretty much something you have to play with other people online. The playing audience will decide the fate of this game. If it just turns into a bunch of 12 year olds constantly making solo runs on the flag, err...princess, then the game will probably meet an early doom.
lol funny one janderdarkmoon....made me have a good laugh anyways...i might actually get this ...looks decent and funny
