215w ago - Capcom's John Diamonon announced today that Flock! is now available on Sony's PSN, to quote:
I want to set the record straight because I'm not one to hide from anything. We will NOT, I repeat, NOT be charging for extra animals in FLOCK!
Yes, the game will be complete with all the sheep, roosters, pigs and cows you can herd to your heart's desire.
So the wait is over. FLOCK! finally lands on PSN today. Here's what you can expect:
• Over 50 levels of intense flocking action!
• Level creating, sharing and rating!
• Trial mode! (Basically a demo with an in-game purchase option) Trophies!
• In game XMB music support!
• Two player local co-op!
• Cow poop!
• Flies on cow poop!
• Pigs rolling on cow poop with flies!
• UFOs and a Motherflocker!
• A $14.99 price point.
• Commenters complaining about said price point!
• Gamers purchasing FLOCK and exclaiming that it's totally worth it!
• More harassment about trophy support for previously released games!
• Shameless cameo appearance by Blanka from Street Fighter!
• Many more surprises and prizes!
216w ago - Today Capcom's John Diamonon announced that FLOCK! for PS3 will be hitting Sony's PlayStation Network on April 9, 2009.
To quote: The real reason I'm here is to let you know that next Thursday, FLOCK! finally arrives on PSN. Soon you'll be able to manipulate cute, cuddly animals with the help of your trusty UFO. You don't even have to be in a farm to flock sheep, Capcom is giving you the ability to do this in the privacy of your own home. You can even call a friend over and flock.
If you've never herd of FLOCK! before, here's a video with the beautiful Veronica Belmont and one the folks at Capcom going over some of the cool features in the game (I'm loving the outfit Veronica!).
Did I mention trophy and in-game XMB music support? Another cool feature is the level editor where you can create your own plushy environments and share them online.
There's also a rating system where you can praise the brilliant work of others, or pan some of the more awkward levels that are made available (Giving fans creative freedom is not always a good thing).
So, if you've been keeping up with my blogs, I've been hinting for months about a cool surprise for PSN gamers this year. Well, stay tuned. I'm ready to talk...
221w ago - Capcom and Proper Games' Flock will be heading to PSN, PC and Xbox Live Arcade in April.
According to IGN, Flock will be available on PC on April 7, then roll out to XBLA on April 8, and will debut on PSN Thursday, April 9 with no word on the title's pricing yet.
To quote: If you've been waiting to roundup sheep for your intergalactic probing, the finish line is now in sight. Flock will be coming to the PC on April 7, Xbox Live April 8, and PlayStation Network April 9.
Using your spacecraft's beam of light, you'll need to nudge animals around a variety of Flock levels until the creatures are onboard your mothership. Sometimes you'll need to shrink the animals and sometimes you'll need to crush trees.
233w ago - Capcom's John Diamonon answered the following question today via PS Blog: You're probably thinking, "What the flock is FLOCK!?"
Well, today you're going to find out because we have a little surprise for you in the free issue of Qore today.
Below are a couple of videos that show some of the quirky and original gameplay you'll see in the game.
I want to introduce you to one of my co-workers, Robby Zinchak. Don't let his young looks fool you. He's an up-and-coming associate producer extraordinaire who's ready to answer all your questions regarding this truly unique, downloadable game. Just don't ask him to show you his ID. (Just kidding Robby.)
Hi! This is my first time posting here, so I figure I should introduce myself first My name is Robby, and I'm the Associate Producer on FLOCK! here at Capcom. As mentioned previously on this blog, the new episode of Qore (available today!) includes both a video feature on FLOCK! and a fully playable demo!
The premise of FLOCK! is simple: you're a UFO (the 'Flocker') which seeks to abduct animals. Through the levels, you'll abduct these cute animals by herding them into your Motherflocker (yes, really, we named the ship that :P). But it's not a simple...
