3w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden revealed details today alongside some PS4 / PS Vita video trailers on how to teledash to the top of the Velocity 2X leaderboards below.

To quote: Hi folks, James & Hussain here to intensify competition on the [Register or Login to view links] leaderboards by revealing our expert tips!

Before we get to that, we just want to say on behalf of the whole team a big THANK YOU for all your amazing compliments over the last few days!

We also wanted to address all the requests for extra DLC by confirming that we are working hard on more DLC to satisfy your boosty-trigger-fingers! We'll have an update on that soon, but for now, let's get serious!

Progress via competition

With a shared passion for highly competitive games like Street Fighter, many of Velocity 2X' most refined gameplay features are the result of over 18 months of constant, thumb-blistering competition between the two of us! Hussain obviously thinks he's the greatest, but I haven't really shown my hand yet... [ EDIT: Oh really? Let's see it then Mr. Marsden! - Hussain ]

Below you will find a bunch of tips that we've used to keep getting the edge over each other.

4w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced that Velocity 2X is out today on PS4 and PS Vita platforms with a launch trailer video below!

To quote: Hey folks, I'm back for one last hype for Velocity 2X launch day.

A few weeks ago I came on here and told you all that I believed Velocity 2X was a [Register or Login to view links] winner. Today I'm going to explain precisely why I believe that is the case!

For anyone that hasn't seen the trailer yet:





INNOVATION

First of all, people love something novel and exciting to get their teeth into, so we've made sure 2X has plenty of firsts.

Having two genres in one expands the speedy gameplay format in a meaningful way, pushing your skills and confidence with the teleportation controls in many different directions.

Take on the Vokh in race-tuned space combat... then dock your ship and continue the fight on foot!

Whilst combining two genres into one is the main attraction, it's not the only one, as there are many other unique ideas along the way, including the ability to fly your ship inside a boss to melt its innards...
 

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

5w 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...

34w ago - FuturLab's Dave Gabriel revealed how to win at Surge Deluxe on PlayStation Vita for fans today.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone! Dave from FuturLab here to remind you that Surge Deluxe launched yesterday, exclusively for PS Vita, for the stupendously good price of $4.99! If you missed it last week, here's the launch trailer.





I'm also here to stock you up on some awesome tips for getting higher up on the various leaderboards. If you want to read even more info, check out last week's blog post.

AWESOME TIPS

1) It's always better to vent...

Venting makes the corresponding color blocks worth more points. For example, if you're left with a bunch of purple blocks ready for clearance, but some of them are blocking the purple vents, it's worth sacrificing those blocks to make the vents available, as triggering two purple vents will make your purple blocks worth a lot more points.

You'll know you've got it right when all your blocks are shaking wildly with excitement before you unleash the clearance!

2) Leave the star blocks until the clearance!

Star blocks are worth double points, so chip away all the other blocks in a level to leave as...
 

FuturLab Announces Velocity Ultra is Out Today on PlayStation 3

46w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden announced today that Velocity Ultra is out today on PlayStation 3.

To quote: Hello folks! I'm excited to say that the multiple award-winning Velocity Ultra is available today on the mighty PlayStation 3 for just $7.49 $9.99!

At full 1080p 60fps, it's a hypnotic experience playing on a big TV, and gives the awesome soundtrack produced by [Register or Login to view links] of Killzone fame a chance to shine too!

Developed and published by the talented team at Curve Studios, Velocity Ultra on PS3 is a perfect conversion that feels great on DualShock 3.

Me confirming that the PS3 version is indeed awesome. What, you've never heard of it?

Those of you not familiar with Velocity Ultra should know that it combines shoot 'em-up action, speed runs and cunning spatial puzzles in a way never seen before, and this combination of clever mechanics and no nonsense fun delighted pretty much everyone that came into contact with it on PS Vita.

So we're incredibly excited that Velocity Ultra is now a full PS3 title which includes perhaps (actually, definitely) the best titled platinum trophy ever: 'Show Thumb Respect.'

Teleporting ahead... With a host of 9/10 review scores from the likes of Edge Magazine...
