109w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with a video peek at the morbid, addictive world of PSVita's upcoming title Escape Plan below.
To quote: During this summer's Gamescom, we invited Chris Millar to join us on the PlayStation.Blog and introduce Fun Bits Interactive and their first creation for PlayStation Vita, Escape Plan.
Aside from the gorgeous black-and-white, film noir art style that pops right off the massive OLED screen, Escape Plan is truly unique game, thanks to its two memorable characters, LAARGE and LIL.
It's time to check on their progress. Escape Plan Producer Matt Morton hopped in front of our cameras at Sony Santa Monica Studios recently, and was happy to give us this update on the art-direction, PS Vita multi-touch controls, and to show us why Escape Plan is such a harsh, but addictive puzzler.
169w ago - PlayStation Home Online Community Specialist Locust_Star has shared a video today of PlayStation Home's new full-length game called Enter the Dragon's Green.
To quote: The evolution of the PlayStation Home platform continues this Thursday, September 16th with the release of our full-length mini-golf game: Dragon's Green.
With nine holes of fantasy mini-golf - and four difficulty gauntlets - Dragon's Green is among the richest and most robust gaming experiences available in PlayStation Home, coming complete with awe-inspiring graphics, ultra-addictive game play, and more than a handful of surprises we wouldn't dare spoil for you here.
In the Dragon's Green you can challenge up to three friends at a time and test your skills against dozens of enemy obstacles while uncovering secret challenges and unlocking special rewards.
It's truly an amazing experience possible only on the PlayStation Home platform. We caught up with Jeffrey Gullett, the Producer responsible for bringing you Dragon's Green, to pick his brain regarding the inspiration behind this exciting new space. Here's what he had to say:
There are lots of different mini-golf games out there. But what we wanted to do is to offer our community...
222w ago - Secret World from Funcom is an MMO heading for PC and Xbox 360 in 2010.
Yet, what will set the MMO apart from the rest... check out the video below!
To quote: "Secret World will be set in modern day times in the real world, and players will be able to roam the good planet Earth just like normal life - however all the myths and legends that we have heard of in real life will actually turn out to be true in the Secret World.
There will be three secret societies that players can take allegiance with and such choice will then allow players to then pick a start location of either London, New York or Seoul following which the adventure begins to uncover the truths behind the myths.
Within the game, the divide between reality and the supernatural will be forever evident. What may be seen to be a simple local nightclub, may eventually provide a night of terror as ancient creatures pour from it to stalk the streets. The player will be continually faced by unspeakable horrors, and will often have to take it upon themselves to explore unknown worlds beyond our own as they aim to unravel truths.
What will prove to be interesting, is that the game will include no classes or levels as such. The player will be provided with full control in the ability of complete character customisation,...
