Backgammon Blitz Comes to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita This Winter

50°
1w ago - Head of Mobile Robert Karp at The Fyzz Facility announced today that Backgammon Blitz is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita this Winter (Tuesday in the US).

To quote: Update: We are very pleased to share that Backgammon Blitz will be launching April 15th for PS3, PS Vita and PS4, priced at a bargain $7.99 Not only do you get the first ever recreation of this age-old board game for latest and greatest generation of consoles, but there is also the brand new and exclusive Blitz arcade mode, which takes the wonderful game of Backgammon and adds a whole new layer of depth and strategy.

I'm just the messenger, of course. The talented folks behind this lovely little title are known as VooFoo. Having made a name for themselves with Hustle Kings and Pure Chess, Backgammon feels like a step onwards and upwards for the studio, taking all of their strengths (gorgeous art design, a subtle but stylish approach to UI) and none of their weaknesses (cake night each Friday has always been their Achilles heel) into the next generation of platforms. VooFoo Studios yet again have done a fantastic job of making their visuals really stand out from the crowd - just check these screen shots below.

For me - and I hope you'll agree once you've gone hands-on with the final game - VooFoo aren't "just" developers...

1w ago - Supergiant Games Creative Director Greg Kasavin announced today that Transistor comes to PS4 on May 20th, 2014.

To quote: Transistor is coming soon! Mark your calendar for May 20th, 2014 – In just a few weeks, our next game will be available on PS4! We've been putting the finishing touches on it, and we think it's just about ready.

If you're not familiar with the game, Transistor is a sci-fi themed action RPG that invites you to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as you fight through a stunning futuristic city.

Gameplay seamlessly integrates thoughtful strategic planning with fast-paced action and rich atmospheric storytelling. During the course of the adventure, you'll piece together the Transistor's mysteries as you pursue its former owners.

This week at PAX East in Boston, several of us from Supergiant will be taking a short break from development to show you some of our latest progress. We'll have a near-final build of the game running on PS4, which you'll be able to get your hands on at our booth (#892). It was one year ago at PAX East that we showed Transistor for the first time!

We'll have more details about Transistor in the days leading up to our launch next month. Until then, here are some quick facts we wanted to share - stay tuned for...

1w ago - Seaven Studio Co-founder Olivier Penot announced today that Ethan: Meteor Hunter comes to PS Vita next week.

To quote: The first day we showed you guys Ethan: Meteor Hunter, all you asked was to get a PS Vita version.

That was a shame for the PS3 version we released back in October, and yet, you had our attention. Today we're happy to announce Ethan: Meteor Hunter will launch next week on April 15th for $9.99.

If you're a player of great taste who already bought Ethan on PS3, then you have nothing to worry about - it's cross buy, so no extra dime to spend. To catch up, we have a wonderful opportunity for PS Plus members who can claim a 20% discount, only available for one week.

So, why would you buy Ethan: Meteor Hunter on PS Vita? I'm sure you're very skilled gamers who like tough challenges, the "just one more try" kind, so you'll be very pleased with Ethan.

He's a rat who has superpowers, just like the comic books we read. He can freeze time and move objects around to get through challenging platforms and mind-bending, physics-based puzzles.

Physics based also mean that in Ethan: Meteor Hunter you can get through obstacles the way you want. Nothing is scripted.

You might think "This seems to be a perfect match for the PS Vita"...
 

Video: Watch_Dogs: Welcome to Chicago on PS4 and PS3, Details

100°
3w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Nik Schmidt made available a new Watch_Dogs video today dubbed Welcome to Chicago for PS4 and PS3 fans with details below.

To quote: As the third largest city in America and an iconic urban landscape, Chicago also holds the distinction of being the most surveilled city in the nation.

Its network of cameras and security systems makes Chicago the perfect setting for a game like Watch_Dogs. One of the challenges of rendering a real city in a game is balancing creative vision with reality: people must be able to recognize and believe in Watch_Dogs' Chicago while allowing the game's unique tone to shape its atmosphere.

With the freedom afforded by Disrupt, an impressive new game engine exclusive to Watch_Dogs, Ubisoft has created a version of Chicago that is almost impossibly alive. Learn all about the new engine and how we've created a living, breathing Chicago inside Watch_Dogs here:





Watch_Dogs is never just black and white; whether in expressing Aiden's morality or building the city in which he lives, there is always another layer to consider. On the surface, The Wards may be crime-ridden, festering in the shadow of the Mad Mile, but beneath the mirrored sky-scrapers and...
