Creative Assembly Reveals New Alien: Isolation PlayStation 4 Details

28w ago - Creative Assembly Creative Lead Alistair Hope revealed new Alien: Isolation PlayStation 4 details below today!

To quote: We're incredibly excited to be showing Alien: Isolation at E3 this year. This will be the first time we've had so many people get their hands on the game in North America.

It's thrilling for us, as the development team, to watch players immerse themselves in our lo-fi, sci-fi, 1970′s original take on the Alien universe.

We're pleased to be revealing the new features of the wider game. Firstly, the human survivors - abandoned on the remote space station the game takes place on.

They're in the same position as the player, they too are desperate to survive and that makes them unpredictable. Sometimes they react positively to the player, sometimes they can be aggressive.

Next are the Seegson Synthetics - these are rudimentary, bio-mechanical creations. They too are hard to read. Sometimes their presence is beneficial, but it's not guaranteed. Built to last, any form of antagonism should be avoided.





Finally we're introducing the Crafting System. This allows items and components found in the world to be combined into rough and ready improved tools and...
 

Krome Studios Creative Director Details Blade Kitten PS3 Updates

50°
223w ago - Today Krome Studios Creative Director Steve Stamatiadis has detailed some Blade Kitten PS3 updates, including his inspirations for the game.

To quote: Blade Kitten is a fantastic new side-scrolling action game for the PS3. No, seriously, it IS awesome.

I know because it's a story I've wanted to tell in game form for a great many years. So come with me and I'll give you a little behind the scenes insight as to where this game comes from.

First up, Blade Kitten is the adventures of bounty hunter Kit Ballard, a pink haired catgirl (or Felion as they're known in the universe).

She travels around with her sidekick, Skiffy a feisty alien critter that is her companion and protector, and also her floating A.I. sword known as the Darque Blade. Her current bounty leads her to a synthetic planetoid on the outskirts of civilized space. There she's ambushed by a rival and thus begin Kit's adventures in the game.

Blade Kitten was born out of the need to bring together years of unused and unfinished ideas into a cool, fun universe that I could channel my creative energy into. These ideas feature all the geeky cool stuff that I loved like anime visuals, giant robots, big swords, aliens, cool fun science fiction and a serving of fun.
