18w ago - Tate Interactive GM Wojtek Bilinski has outlined Urban Trial Freestyle PS3 and PS Vita customization and challenge details today.
To quote: One of the really cool features in Urban Trial Freestyle for PS Vita and PS3 is the ability to customize your motorbike - but it's more than just picking out shiny new parts.
Bike customization is a key factor that directly affects your performance in both the Stunt and Time Attack Modes. Bike Customization allows you to adjust your bike to best meet the conditions on each of the available tracks.
Urban Trial Freestyle provides you with three main bike components to customize your vehicle - engine, chassis and wheels - customizing these parts influences three main parameters: speed, acceleration and handling.
As you advance and unlock more parts, you will ultimately have four engines, four pairs of wheels and four chassis to choose from, giving you altogether a possible of 64 combinations.
If you maximize the speed parameter, you will compromise balance (along with more rigid chassis), so you will perform better in Stunts like Highest or Longest Jump but worse in Flip Meter. When you want to beat a particular Stunt record, the choice is pretty simple and you would focus on one or two factors.
30w ago - UFO Interactive Games Producer Andrew Wang has shared a video today announcing that Eliminage Original brings deep RPG customization to PSP today.
To quote: I think RPG gamers need no introduction to the concept of customization. In Elminage Original, the customization options are... abundant, to say the least.
There are 12 character races and 16 classes to choose from, so players will be able to tailor their party to suit their specific play styles.
Elminage Original is a dungeon-crawling RPG, and it doesn't try to hide it. It doesn't waste time hand-holding, and it lets you jump into the action very quickly if you so choose.
Parties are formed in groups of six, so whether you think you'll do better with Humans, Fairies, Werebeasts, or Magic Dolls, you can rest assured that there are plenty of combinations to try!
Customization is a big reason why I love RPG's. When I start to play a new RPG, I tend to get caught up when I'm allowed an unlimited amount of time to grind and discover new tactics, and I spend way too many hours doing so. I'm sure that some of you reading this know exactly what I am talking about.
In the case of Elminage Original, I even spent time customizing my entire party to make sure that they all had matching themed portraits....
67w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has posted up a video showcasing Armored Core V customization and bosses for fans today.
To quote: Today we're coming back at you with more Armored Core V action, and a deeper look at the customization, weapons, bosses, and AC insanity that you'll be finding yourself in the middle of come March 20th.
Between the kinetic energy, the chemical energy, and the thermal energy, there's a massive arsenal worth of firepower that you'll be able to choose from when building your ultimate machine of destruction in the game.
As we've said before, the team at FromSoftware has been a leader in the genre with this franchise for nearly fifteen years, and with Armored Core V, and they mean business.
Each AC you build is highly unlikely to be identical to any others you come across online since customization is key. Brand new for this game are the recon units that players are going to be able to lay out all over the map to survey the land and take out your enemies.
What's also cool are the emblems and detailing customization aspects that let you trick out your AC like no other. You can get crazy with it, and...
136w ago - Team17 Community Manager Mark Baldwin has revealed several customization options today in Worms: Battle Islands for PSP.
To quote: A couple of weeks ago, we introduced the latest game in our long-running Worms series, Worms: Battle Islands on PSP.
We gave an overview of the game and introduced some of the single-player and multiplayer modes included. This time, we want to show you some of the customisation options that will make Worms: Battle Islands the most personal title in the series.
The ability for players to customise their team of worms has always been a mainstay feature of the series and one that I think people who play the game get a lot of enjoyment from. For Worms: Battle Islands, we put a lot of effort into increasing the player's options for how they customise their team.
There are new customisation categories such as masks and backpacks, and over a hundred different items with which the player can leave their personal mark. It's possibly the highest degree of customisation we've ever had in a Worms game, and it's certainly the most customisable of the 2D games.
To act as a nice aside to the action and to allow the player to demonstrate their creative side, we've...
292w ago - As we've shown before, upgrading your PS3's hard drive (HDD) is a quick and easy process. You don't need to be a master PC builder to do it; in fact, the hardest part is removing the tiny screws without stripping them.
After swapping out our first drive, we naturally wanted more, more, more!. A huge hard drive is obviously great for downloading demos, videos, and adding MP3s to your PS3 library. But speed also counts. Hard drives are comprised of platters that spin to read and write data; the faster that platter spins, the faster the hard drive can perform...leading to increased performance on PCs.
But does the PS3 benefit from a faster hard drive? And if so, is the performance boost worth the extra money?
We put two hard drives, a stock PS3 drive running at 5400rpm, and the other at 7200rpm, through a series of simple stopwatch tests to figure out whether drive speed matters to the PS3. By and large, we found that the gains were tiny.
Does a 7200rpm drive make your PS3 faster? We're about to find out
Note: both drives are Seagate Momentus drives; the 5400 RPM model is the stock option in the 60GB PS3.
