Video: Qore Episode 18 - ModNation Racers, Star Trek and More
PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a preview video of Sony's Qore Episode 18, which features ModNation Racers, Assassin's Creed II, ILM and Star Trek.
To quote: In our 18th episode, we'll show you a creative kart, an assassin with a heart, and moviemaking art.
United Front Games' first title for the PS3, ModNation Racers, looks to bring the same "play, create, share" ethos of LittleBigPlanet to the kart racing genre, with tons of customization options combined with lively racing action. Veronica Belmont sees firsthand how easy it is to create drivers, karts and tracks and gives us a taste of what is to come.
The highly-anticipated sequel Assassin's Creed II is almost upon us. Qore returns to the dangerous world of Renaissance Italy with an in-depth look at an all-new mission set in Venice including some amazing gameplay and information on new characters and tactics. There's even a "spoiler" you can skip or dare to watch!
Industrial Light & Magic created the special effects for some of our favorite films spanning the decades from Star Wars to Transformers. In part one of our visit to ILM's Presidio campus, they pull back the curtain to show Audrey Cleo the tech behind the magic.
One of ILM's biggest productions this past year was Star Trek. Earlier this year, the franchise was re-booted with a new cast, a new director and a new timeline. With the film about to "beam down" onto Blu-ray, we take a look at its extra features.
This month, we've also got an exclusive ModNation Racers PS3 theme and the first in a series of themes based on classic PlayStation titles (PSone's Blasto) for download.
