Video: Octodad: Dadliest Catch Flails to PlayStation 4 on Tuesday

1d ago - Sony Creative Director Kevin Zuhn announced today that Octodad: Dadliest Catch flails to PS4 this coming Tuesday with details below.

To quote: Hello octopus fans, I've got great news! Octodad: Dadliest Catch is launching on PlayStation 4 next week!

For those of you unfamiliar with Octodad, he's a normal everyday father with an adoring family, but he just so happens to be an octopus!

Life for him is a neverending struggle to control his wobbly limbs and to conceal his cephalopod secret from his loved ones. In Dadliest Catch, Octodad and his family take a disastrous trip to the aquarium, putting him at odds with marine biologists, a manic sushi chef, and his wife's ever rising suspicions

We started Octodad as a ragtag group of students, and it's been a long and crazy ride getting our silly game on the PS4. This is our first foray into consoles, and we're proud to be here.

We released Octodad on PC back in January, and since then we've taken the time to improve it based on feedback from our players. The latter third of the game in particular has gone through some radical changes, with added challenges like deck swabbing, jig dancing, and new disguises to wear!

To quote: We know there's a great deal of anticipation to witness the next generation of baseball video games, and we're proud to unveil the first trailer for MLB 14 The Show on PS4.

3d ago - Today Brian Fleming of Sucker Punch Productions announced that their InFamous Second Son PS4 patch will be out tomorrow alongside a PlayStation 4 video trailer below.

To quote: I have some good news for you. We've made great progress on the inFAMOUS Second Son patch on PS4 I promised you a couple weeks back. In fact, we expect to publish it on PSN tomorrow, April 17th.

Now first, let me update you on the specifics I promised, and then toss in a few extra goodies that we managed to squeeze in when nobody was looking. First - addressing one of the top two requests we've gotten - you'll be able to disable the HUD, and once you've finished the game you'll be able to adjust the time of day as you like.

We also promised, and have included, an option to cap the game frame rate at 30 FPS if you prefer playing this way. To set expectations for you all: this is a frame rate cap - not a lock. It won't eliminate the rare instance of a dropped frame during gameplay.





But that's all stuff you expected. Let's talk about a few surprises, saving the best for last:

• A handful of localization text changes, and a couple of fixes for rare crashes in the game (Thanks to all of you who uploaded reports on those,...

To quote: The wait is over! After months of teases, previews, trailers, and more, it's finally time to strap on your helmet, straddle your bike, and smash face first into the ground at incredibly high speed.

That's right; it's time for Trials Fusion.

Get ready to push yourself, your skill, and your patience to the limit on grueling platform racing courses designed to drive you mad. But it's not just a race! Flash some style with the all-new FMX Trick system and rack up high scores on special FMX trick tracks full of big air and bigger crashes.

"But Trials Fusion guys, I don't even LIKE motorcycles," you plead. Well that's utterly ridiculous, but don't sweat it because we have you covered. Trials Fusion comes complete with alternate modes of transportation for all your vehicular mayhem needs. We've got ATVs and BMX bikes just waiting to be taken for a spin.





And what's the best part of Trials Fusion's unique brand of physics-based platform racing? Why, being better than everyone else of course. Trials Fusion comes fully stocked with ways to dominate...
