Sony Announces Close Castles Coming to PS4, Play at PS Experience

50°
4w ago - Sony's Asher Vollmer announced that Close Castles is coming to PS4, and PlayStation 4 fans can play it at PS Experience!

To quote: I have a love/hate relationship with real time strategy games. I love them, but I hate playing them.

Let's face it: RTSes are miserable pain engines designed to give players the worst possible experience. They're kind of fun (though deeply stressful) right up until the first interaction with another player and then it's all downhill for the next forty-or-so minutes.

You play until someone gives up. They are lonely exercises in sadomasochism. Anyway hello. My name is Asher Vollmer and I intend to fix all that with my new game, Close Castles.

I made [Register or Login to view links] because I love small, minimalist games. Close Castles is no different. The games are incredibly quick: they average around three minutes each on the fastest game speed.

Buliding the game for a controller has inspired me to make the controls as simple as possible. You move your cursor around the field and press a button to build structures. What you build and where you build it will determine you and your opponent's collective fate.

The game is built for local multiplayer, so there's no hidden information. This means...
 

Video: There Came an Echo: Absurd Voice Cast, PS4 Story Details

100°
6w ago - Iridium Studios Lead Designer Jason Wishnov made available a PS4 video trailer for There Came an Echo, which features an absurd voice cast with PlayStation 4 Story details below.

To quote: So, we're indie developers. By and large, indie folk don't really do "story" the same way larger developers do... it's usually more minimalistic, and for lack of a better word, "artsy". Which is cool! There's space in the gaming sphere for everything, even whatever Suda 51's up to these days.

Still, we don't think "indie" and "complex narrative with well-developed characters and realistic dialogue" are mutually exclusive.

The voice command gameplay of There Came an Echo and its script were developed in conjunction with one another - the story is an integral part of the experience, not something tacked on after the fact.

The four members of your squadron aren't mindless military drones, but real people with imperfections, desires, and fears. And snark. They're pretty snarky.





And voice acting. If you've got voice acting, it better be good, or it's going to completely ruin the experience. Luckily, we're located in Hollywood, and we happen to know some people who are very good at saying things we tell...

12w ago - Sony LittleBigPlanet Community Coordinator Steven Isbell shared details today on LittleBigPlanet 3's all-star cast, which includes Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry as outlined below.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] is going to be the biggest, most awesomest, most amazingest adventure yet! So we're proud to announce today that as a LittleBigPlanet first... our entire adventure will be fully voice acted!

Long-time fans will already be well-accustomed to Stephen Fry's dulcet tones as LittleBigPlanet's ever-warm and loving Narrator. But evil is afoot for our otherwise pleasant world and the nefarious Newton is here to cause all kinds of trouble and mischief in this brand new adventure!

But just who would be the dream voice to contest against Mr. Fry...?

Introducing Hugh Laurie as the voice of Newton!

That's right! The mischievous Newton is being voiced by none other than Stephen Fry's long-time comedic partner... Hugh Laurie!

We have naturally always been big fans of Stephen Fry, so when it came to deciding upon a voice to act as his dastardly counterpart, we couldn't help but think that bringing Hugh Laurie on as the voice of Newton...
