Video: Aztez is Going to Blow Up Your PS4 and PlayStation Vita

5w ago - Team Colorblind Combat Designer Ben Ruiz boasts today that Aztez is going to blow up your PS4 and PlayStation Vita consoles.

To quote: Hi! I'm Ben Ruiz, the artist and combat designer at Team Colorblind in Arizona.

I'm super excited to announced that Aztez, the brutal, bloody, expressive, difficult, and replayable action game I've been working on for two years now is coming to Sony's magnificent, next-gen beast machines. For your own information, Team Colorblind is myself and also Matthew Wegner.

"Brutal, bloody, expressive, difficult, and replayable?!" is probably what you're thinking as your eyes widen in the dim glow of my audacity. But I sincerely believe that we are cooking up something you will like! At its core, Aztez is two games. One of those games is a full on real-time beat 'em up combat experience.

We've piped in the feel and creativity of Bayonetta, the sensationalism and mobility of Capcom's Alien Vs Predator, and the precision difficulty of classic Devil May Cry. As the combat designer, I've been studying these types of games for years, and I refuse to produce and hand you something that won't dangerously raise your heart rate and dopamine levels.

Jonathan Blow Shares Some Concept Art From The Witness

50°
216w ago - Jonathan Blow, game developer of the critically acclaimed game 'Braid', has shared with us through his blog that he's created a new Web site and blog for his next game called The Witness.

You can start following the blog here. The first information he shared through his blog are some wonderful concept art pictures, but it doesn't say much yet about the game.. Don't forget to read the caption of each image!

The main Web site also contains the following poem:

"Through many births,
I have wondered on and on,
Searching for, but never finding,
The builder of this house.
To be born again and again, is suffering.

House-builder, you are seen!
You will not build a house again!
All the rafters are broken,
The ridgepole destroyed;
The mind, gone to the Unconstructed,
Has reached the end of craving!"

If anyone can make any sense of it, feel free to comment!
 

Video: Uncharted 2 PS3 Visuals Blows Away All Competition

550°
257w ago - After watching the 5 min gameplay of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, I have been left speechless.

I hear this is a common symptom with most PS3 exclusives of late, but this has taken it too far, the game looks incredible, so incredible... nothing else on consoles matches it.

The detail in the character models, faces, environments, explosions, lighting and animations are absolutely fantastic, I have to give special recognition to just how crisp the textures of this game look, I think the secret to the uniquely crisp textures are the fact that they are hand-painted!





For those of you that haven't seen it, you need to watch this footage, it's stunning in every sense of the word, and if this is the level of visual fidelity we can come to expect from every level in the game, I can't wait to see gameplay of some snowy areas.

From loads of insider sources I'm in contact with, they are stating that Nathan Drakes character model alone contains more detail than in some other games environments. various shaders have been applied to his body, and an even more improved expression engine has been used to craft characters organic facial expressions with great care.

No other game comes close to the...
 

Google Chrome and Firefox Speeds Blow Past IE and Opera!

250°
272w ago - ZDNet Australia recently released updated browser speeds, as measured by the industry-standard SunSpider JavaScript test, and the results should give pause to proprietary-browser makers Microsoft and Opera Software:

Every open-source browser completely obliterated the proprietary browsers in terms of performance, and by a huge margin.

The test compared Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 Release Candidate 1, Opera 10.00 Alpha, Firefox 3.1b1, Chrome 2.0.158.0, and the WebKit r40220 developer project included in Chrome and Apple's Safari.

Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox (along with WebKit) left the proprietary competition in the dust:

Maybe there's something in the open-source water, after all, that makes those open-source browsers grow up big and strong. IE 8? Well, let's just say that it has a lot of work to do to catch up.
