FuturLab Details the Explosions of Velocity 2X on PS4 and PS Vita

3d ago - FuturLab Technical Director Hussain Sheikh shares details today of the explosions in Velocity 2X on PS4 and PS Vita.

To quote: Hello beautiful people! Hussain Sheikh, Technical Director from FuturLab back again to talk juice. Explosion juice! Get a cuppa, this is a big one!

The Fateful Day

It was just another morning at FuturLab, I had just sat down at my desk, waiting for my PC to boot up, hot cup of coffee in my hand. I was getting ready to rock, when James walked over with a serious look on his face: "Need to talk to you man... In the boardroom!"

You know that look, it's the "I mean business" look. I had never seen James like that before, so I thought I must've done something wrong.

A bit concerned something bad was going to happen, I went into the meeting room and James said: "Sit down buddy, I need to show you something."

"Oh dear, here it comes!" I thought. But then he started drawing this graph on the notepad:

Now that WAS bad, just not the kind of bad I'd anticipated. But in the world of graphs making any sense at all; this was brutal.

Then James started explaining it to me. Most of his explanation was pretty much like the graph, so I tuned it out, though I do remember imagining the graph he actually wanted...

Sony Details How the World Cup Influenced FIFA 15 on PS4

50°
5d ago - Sony Content Producer Tom Wallis detailed how the World Cup influenced FIFA 15 on PS4 today for PlayStation 4 fans below.

To quote: "We picked the winner of the Brazil World Cup with our simulation."

It's a lofty claim to make, but one that Nick Channon, Senior Producer on [Register or Login to view links], doesn't make lightly.

"We do a simulation every year and we actually, before the tournament, picked Germany. I'm not sure too many people agreed with us. A lot of people were looking at Argentina or Brazil as the favorites."

When talking to Nick backstage at Gamescom this year, talk inevitably kept returning to this summer's footballing extravaganza over in Brazil and perhaps unsurprisingly, it becomes clear that the tournament had an impact on how the final game is turning out.

One area in particular - goalkeepers - came in for special attention as the tournament wound to its conclusion.

"It felt for a lot of the World Cup that the standout position was the goalkeeper," explains Nick.

"Tim Howard from the USA had the record for the most saves in a game. That was something we didn't see coming - just how the World Cup became a story of the...
 

Video: Kick & Fennick on PlayStation Vita: New Details and Trailer

50°
2w ago - Co-Founders Vincent Bonefaas and Laurens Bruins at Jaywalkers Interactive revealed new details and a PS Vita trailer video today showcasing Kick & Fennick on PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: Hi everyone. Laurens and Vincent from Jaywalkers Interactive, here. Time flies. It's been a year already since we've last shown our game, but we're back and excited to finally share a bit more about Kick & Fennick for PS Vita!

The past year has been a crazy ride for us. We have been working closely with our friends at Abstraction Games to make Kick & Fennick the best it can be on PS Vita.

The guys at Abstraction have conjured up some amazing tech that allows us to continually refine and improve the game on our side, while they make sure everything we do gets translated perfectly. Kick & Fennick has quite a lot going on so building this custom tech has been a challenge, but we think it was worth it.

The audio also had a big overhaul. Our good friend Jonathan van den Wijngaarden, who composed the music and created everything you hear in the game, has re-mastered the entire soundtrack and polished and added lots of new sounds effects.





As for the release of Kick & Fennick, it's a bit too early...
