168w ago - Team RamRod's Brandon Akiaten has confirmed that High Velocity Bowling for PS3 ships today on Blu-ray with PlayStation Move support.
To quote: Over the last few years, lots of High Velocity Bowling add-on DLC has been released and we've collected all the content in one convenient Blu-ray Disc package, including over 20 unique characters and themed alleys, trick shot packs, and other fun content.
In addition, the game also supports stereoscopic 3D and PlayStation Move functionality included on the disc to really simulate a genuine bowling swing. The game's a blast to play and lets up to four friends play offline, or go head-to-head online to see who the better bowler is.
If you already own the original High Velocity Bowling game on PSN, you can get the PlayStation Move add-on functionality for free if you are a PlayStation Plus member. If you aren't a member of PlayStation Plus, don't worry: the PlayStation Move add-on is planned to be released in the near future.
209w ago - Team RamRod's Brandon Akiaten has announced that new High Velocity Bowling characters and Ball Packs are slated to hit PSN this week. A video is below, and to quote:
Happy Holidays Bowling fans! 2009 is almost over and we wanted to close the year out with a PAINful Xmas! That's right... Jarvis and Ginger are coming to High Velocity Bowling.
These are both available this Thursday 12/10 for just $0.99 each, and they each come with a new customized bowling lane and bowling ball! If that wasn't enough we also have two new ball packs coming your way also for $0.99 each!
For those late bloomers who haven't played the game yet, now's the perfect time to try it out. It uses the SIXAXIS motion sensors so you hold the controller and swing your arm like you're throwing the ball.
With 4-player local play and 2-player online, it's great fun for family and friends, and can be had for only $9.99 on PSN. In addition to the eight quirky, unique characters included in the base game, there are a bunch of other downloadable characters and ball packs available via in-game commerce or the PlayStation Store as well, on top of Jarvis and Ginger coming this week.
Here's the breakdown of the goodies coming this Thursday:
234w ago - Team RamRod's Brandon Akiaten has announced two new ball packs among other updates for High Velocity Bowling today.
To quote: Some of you may have missed it because of all the E3 excitement, but we released a patch and two brand new characters for you June 3rd. We are also releasing two new ball packs for you at the end of the month. Here is some info for our new additions:
There were a couple things we wanted to fix up to make things a bit more enjoyable:
• Resolved network stability issues
• Background music playback is now available while not signed into PSN
• More than 1 additional costume is now allowed especially in Online Head to Head.
Don Carlos 'El Gordo' Caliente Don Carlos is a lower tier Luchador from Mexico City, Mexico. Beyond his size, his love for spicy foods has equipped him with the internal power to launch the ball. Unfortunately, his brute force leaves him with very little spin success. Comes with the new Casa de Caliente lane.
Milan 'Princess' Travellage Milan is the daughter of a wealthy motel magnate from Van Nuys, California. This wannabe celebutante sports knockoffs of the latest fashions, and plays with the best second-hand balls on the market,...
249w ago - Today Brandon Akiaten of Team RamRod revealed some new strikers heading to High Velocity Bowling for PS3 as follows:
We're back and with a couple more characters for you to 'roll' with. I'm happy to present you all with Bruce 'Flyboy' Fitzpatrick and Carmen 'Sordida' Sanchez.
Both of these guys are available beginning TODAY and for just $0.99 each! Here's a little info on our new additions:
Bruce 'Flyboy' Fitzpatrick
Bruce is a flamboyant flight attendant from New York, New York who happens to be fantastic in the lane. He's definitely earned the nickname 'Flyboy' and has proven to have fabulous ball control. Though, his downfall is that he cares more about his precious manicure than pin action ... so it's nothing but light balls for him.
Carmen 'Sordida' Sanchez
Carmen is from San Ysidro, California, and with a chip on her shoulder, she has much to prove. She'll do anything to win even if it requires dirty tactics. Carmen refuses to wear bowling shoes and as a result, her form leaves a lot to be desired.
We hope you enjoy these two new additions to the High Velocity Bowling family! BUT, if that wasn't enough for you, keep checking back with us in a few weeks as we have more to 'spare'...
260w ago - Team RamRod's Mike Skinner shared the following today via PS Blog:
Hello everyone! We hope you have been enjoying High Velocity Bowling (HVB) online over the past few months. For those of you who have never played before, HVB uses your SIXAXIS controller to simulate a genuine bowling swing.
Challenge one of 8 unique bowlers in our single- player mode, or play multiplayer at home with up to 3 friends or family members. If you're ready for more, go online and take on some of the bowlers, or just hang out for a casual game with someone new.
You can listen to your own music while you bowl, and also earn PlayStation Network Trophies along the way. HVB is a great game to get everyone together this holiday season, and it's available right now on the PlayStation Network Store for only $9.99.
Last month we added some flair to the world of HVB with the release of the two characters – Foxy Powers and Chastity Falls - as well as the All Hallow's Eve Bowling Ball Pack. Last week, we released the new Gearhead Ball Pack, which is currently available on the Playstation Store for just $.99.
Inspired by the American Hot Rod culture, players can now get ready to tear up the lanes in style with six new bowling ball designs, including two new showcase balls!
