8w ago - Mercenary Technology Executive Producer Bill Chinn announced that The Amazing Spider-Man is swinging to PlayStation Vita.
To quote: Look out! With New York Comic Con just around the corner, I'm swinging by to let you know more about the upcoming PS Vita release of The Amazing Spider-Man from Activision, a hand-held version of the original PS3 title.
For those of you new to the series, The Amazing Spider-Man takes place after the events of the movie and features a new, original story. It mixes all-out, freeform brawls and stealth-based, stalk-and-strike challenges with a fast-paced momentum that puts Spidey front and center in the action.
If you caught the game when it first launched on PS3, you already know The Amazing Spider-Man gives you free roam and free reign over the isle of Manhattan, a bustling and beautiful open world teeming with sights to see, citizens to aid and colossal bosses to rip down.
The PS Vita release of The Amazing Spider-Man is a virtual playground in your pocket, maintaining that same spirit of the console edition while adding new energy through Vita's special features. Tying it all together is the...
63w ago - Beenox Producer Stephane Gravel has announced today that The Amazing Spider-Man PS3 DLC will be swinging to PSN tomorrow!
To quote: We'll be launching four Amazing Spider-Man DLC packs on PlayStation Network tomorrow, starting with the Stan Lee Adventure and Rhino Challenge, as well as two new packs - The Lizard Rampage and Oscorp Search & Destroy.
In deciding what new content would interest fans of the game, we realized the only thing that could compare to playing as the webhead himself was to let players step into the shoes of other notable characters: The Lizard, Rhino, and my personal favorite, Stan Lee.
Plus, you can also fight crime within cool retro-arcade inspired mini-games through Spider-Man's in-game smartphone. Here's what you can expect from each of the DLC packs coming your way.
In The Lizard Rampage Pack, you'll play as The Lizard on a quest to stop Oscorp from releasing a cross-species virus blast into the city. With your devastating attacks and speed, you can create chaos throughout the city on a massive scale, using your powerful tail swipes to rip through Oscorp guards or claw strikes to knock down the toxic towers placed around the city.
The more you destroy, the more bonus points you'll earn! But that's not all: In addition to playing...
76w ago - Activision Associate Producer Travis Day has announced alongside new a video trailer that The Amazing Spider-Man swings onto PS3 today with collectible suits and comics.
To quote: Good news - The Amazing Spider-Man video game comes to PS3 today with PlayStation Move support.
The game's story picks up right where this summer's blockbuster movie, The Amazing Spider-Man, leaves off in a new tale crafted by acclaimed Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey and voiced by veteran talent such as Nolan North, Sam Riegel, and Bruce Campbell (and even Stan Lee, for those of you who pre-ordered the game from Amazon!)
The Amazing Spider-Man has been developed by the veteran webheads over at Beenox (creators of Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions) and the team has been hard at work over the last two years to bring Spider-Man back home to an open-world Manhattan teeming with side missions and playable content.
In addition to bringing back free-roaming gameplay, the team has dramatically improved the combat system and added an entirely new feature called Web Rush. Stick with me and I will explain why this is the best Spider-Man game yet!
In The Amazing Spider-Man, you'll swing all over Manhattan stopping...
190w ago - Today Gamersmint shared some amazing new Alan Wake screenshots, which confirms the fact that this is going to be one of the finest titles to be releasing on Microsoft's XBox 360 this year!
The story will play out in an episodic format, with a television show-style presentation. Remedy has confirmed that Alan Wake is only the first season of a bigger story, opening the door for future sequels.
Light plays a significant role in gameplay and strategy. The enemies, called "the Taken" in the game, are sensitive to light, encouraging the player to take advantage of environmental light sources and placing significant emphasis on the flashlight as a primary weapon.
Players also have the ability to set traps that illuminate when triggered, either damaging or temporarily immobilizing an enemy. They are then destroyed and turned into batteries.
Finally, Alan Wake is slated for release on Microsoft's XBox 360 console on May 14, 2010 in Europe and on May 18, 2010 in North America.
248w ago - The current issue of Play features an interview with BioWare CEO Dr Ray Muzyka, in which he talks about Mass Effect, Dragon Age and how much he loves the PS3.
We couldn't fit it all into the mag, so here are some 'extras' from the interview:
Play: How are you finding it being part of EA? How has the acquisition changed BioWare?
Ray: We've evolved every year we've been in business and I think we're at a good place. It's great to be part of a large stable company.
Another benefit is also that we're now a developer, but also a publisher. Obviously development is still a big focus for us, but it's great to be a publisher at the same time so we can get to combine everything and make sure you're doing all things right.
We have to adapt. We're part of a larger company now. We have a whole bunch of products of our own, but EA's a very big company overall.
Play: Your older games on the PC are known for their depth and detail. Is it difficult to maintain those qualities when making a game that has to be accessible to console gamers?
Ray: We have an obligation always to make our games as accessible as possible, and yet you don't have to lose the depth and richness of the tactics, the systems,...
