Video: How DriveClub Aims to Make Rage-quitting Extinct on PS4

50°
8w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton outlined how they plan to make rage-quitting extinct in DriveClub DriveClub on PS4 today.

To quote: We've all been there. You're tearing round the last lap in, say, Gran Turismo or Need For Speed, defending a narrow lead over the chasing pack, when your concentration slips for a second and you find your car buried in a hedge.

With the race all but lost and any rewards snatched away, it's understandable that throwing a quick tantrum and furiously jabbing Options > Quit Race can be an instinctive reaction.

The racing game rage-quit is a real conundrum for designers - not only does it rip you out of the game and compromise your enjoyment, but it also inhibits the integrity of the online multiplayer experience. Duly, it's an obstacle that Evolution Studios is tackling head on in DRIVECLUB on PS4.

"I like the idea that that you don't have to be in first place," explained Game Director Paul Rustchynsky when we stopped by the studio last week. "I want everybody to enjoy the thrill of racing."

"I play a lot of racing games and I'm a pretty good driver, but I'm not always the guy who's in first place. I like to have fun and take risks, rather than obsess about perfecting every single corner. The problem for drivers like me, and I think we're...

59w ago - Subatomic Studios Marketing & Strategy Manager Alec Shobin has officially announced that Fieldrunners 2: Acclaimed Tower Defense will be hitting PS Vita this Summer.

To quote: Are you ready to defend the world? [Register or Login to view links], the "king of tower defense," storms onto PS Vita this summer.

Everyone at Subatomic Studios is thrilled about launching Fieldrunners 2 on PS Vita! When we brought the original Fieldrunners to PSP back in 2009, we were completely overwhelmed by how much enthusiasm and support you all showed for our game. You folks are awesome, Sony rocks, and that's why we're bringing the biggest tower defense game ever to PS Vita this summer.

In Fieldrunners 2, our aim was to make everything bigger and better, while still respecting our fans as tower defense connoisseurs. We started by building a new game engine, which allows each and every enemy to carve their own unique path through the battlefield.

Drop a tower in front of them? Their relentless waves wrap right around it. Use bridges and tunnels to create a killer choke point? Enemies get caught up in a huge traffic jam.

How will you ever defend yourself against these legions of baddies? With over 25 devious new towers, those fieldrunners don't...

65w ago - Amanita Design Founder Jakub Dvorsky confirmed today that acclaimed indie adventure Machinarium is coming to PS Vita next week.

Below are the details, to quote: We're thrilled to be bringing our acclaimed adventure title Machinarium to PS Vita on 1st May. When the PS3 version was released, we called it the best version of the game.

In it, we added lots of new features - like the ability to zoom in to get a closer look at the scene, magnetic hotspots, 12 Trophies and more.

The PS Vita version makes no compromises. In fact, it's even better! It includes all the enhancements from the PS3 version, but we've added some new features to complement PS Vita's capabilities.

You can now control the game not only with the system's analogue sticks and buttons, but also directly with your fingers on the touch screen and rear touch panel. We've improved the zoom feature too, so it's more convenient to play the game in a portable capacity.

The graphics, music and sounds are presented at full quality, and everything runs smoothly and looks as beautiful as ever on Vita's gorgeous 5″ OLED display. For the best audio experience, put on some nice headphones so you can fully enjoy the award-winning soundtrack by Floex.

We've also integrated PSN...
