Sony Announces Hohokum: Enter the Fun Fair Coming to PlayStation

50°
8w ago - Sony Co-creator Richard Hogg announced today that Hohokum: Enter the Fun Fair is coming to PlayStation platforms with details below.

To quote: At last, we can reveal the Fun Fair to the world! It's the level we've worked on the longest, and its roots can be traced all the way back to the first prototype of the game we showed back in 2011.

Back then, it was a no-fun fair. It was a place of danger, a beautiful and colorful city, but one that was under attack from a mysterious enemy. Bombs rained down on the town and its peaceful citizens. Your job was to collect these hapless denizens and ferry them to an awaiting boat.

Three years have passed and the city is no longer under threat; it has been rebuilt and expanded. The original citizens are back and enjoying more peaceful times... but not quite, as the Fun Fair has come to town!

This is one of the most frantic and hectic places that you will visit. You will be FLUNG at high velocity into dizzying, concentric trajectories by the SPIROGRABBERS!

You will be SCARED BEYOND WITLESS by the terrifying and not at all cute GHOSTLY TRAIN! You will be THOROUGHLY FERRISED by the magnificent FERRIS WHEEL.

...and if you like sushi, prize vegetables, juvenile birds, mythical reptiles, headless horses, and multi-limbed...
 

Video: Air Conflicts: Vietnam is Out Now for PlayStation 3

27w ago - BitComposer Games PR Manager Daniel Kraub posted up a new video announcing that Air Conflicts: Vietnam is out now for PlayStation 3.

To quote: Hi guys! My name is Daniel Kraub from bitComposer Games and over the past 10 months we've been working together with Peter Nagy and his team from GamesFarm on Air Conflicts: Vietnam, the third title of the Air Conflicts series.

After taking the series to Europe and the Pacific, we're now transporting the player to a completely new and underrepresented scenario. Besides, we have to admit that as Kilgore said in Apocalypse Now - we love the smell of the napalm in the morning...

So, what is Air Conflicts: Vietnam all about?

Get into your jet or helicopter and witness the Vietnam War through eyes of our main character Joe Thompson. Fly over jungles, mountains and lowlands in a huge array of different aircraft from the Vietnam era, both fixed wing and helicopters.

Experience the story of Joe as a pilot - leader of a squadron of men with varied talents and traits, all of whom you control - and of Joe as a family man - a son, a husband, a father; a moral man who comes to question his patriotism and sense of duty as the horrors of the Vietnam War unfold.

It may be an Arcade experience at heart but we keep it real...
 

Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4 Q&A: Creating Echo and Sinclair

250°
38w ago - Killzone Community Editor Victor Zuylen made available a Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4 Q&A today detailing the creation of Echo and Sinclair.

Below are the details, to quote: As we announced earlier this month, we've secured the amazing talents of David Harewood and Jamie Gray Hyder to portray two key characters from Killzone: Shadow Fall - VSA director Sinclair and Helghast intelligence operative Echo.

But who exactly are Sinclair and Echo, and how did their character designs come about? We asked Assistant Art Director Dan Calvert to shed some light on these enigmatic characters.

PlayStation.Blog: Who are Sinclair and Echo, and what roles do they play in KZ:SF?

Dan Calvert: Sinclair is the head of the Vektan Security Agency - his job is to make sure the balance of power favors Vekta without escalating the cold war into open conflict. Part spymaster - part diplomat, and with a shrewd strategic mind, he is Lucas' direct CO and mentor.

Like Lucas, Echo is an elite operative tasked to cross the wall, and her mission puts them on a collision course. She is extremely dangerous; an equal but opposite reflection of the player character.

PSB: How did the design of these characters evolve?

DC: In order to get stronger...
 

Video: Air Conflicts: Vietnam Takes Flight on PS3 Later This Year

52w ago - BitComposer Games PR Manager Daniel Kraub shared a video today announcing that Air Conflicts: Vietnam takes flight on PS3 later this year.

Below are the details, to quote: I'd like to introduce you to Air Conflicts: Vietnam - the latest addition to our Air Conflicts line, due for release in the third quarter of 2013 for PlayStation 3.

Breaking away from the World War theme, our upcoming game turns to Vietnam where we feel there is huge potential for a whole new air combat experience.

Vietnam brings a new perspective and fresh impetus to the series, introducing legendary jet planes such as the F-4 Phantom and the infamous B-52, along with the thrill of supersonic dog-fighting, heat-seeking missiles, carpet bombing, and laser-guided munitions.

In addition to the new supersonic flight capability, we resurrect the iconic helicopters of the era - the immortal UH-1 Huey, the brutal AH-1 Cobra, and even the steadfast CH-47 Chinook and CH-53 Sea Stallion for transport and rescue operations.

Air Conflicts: Vietnam is unparalleled by any other flight game on the market, offering a strikingly diverse range of mission objectives, entirely new easy-to-handle control mechanics designed for supersonic aircraft and helicopters, and breathtaking visuals to immerse the...
