Sony Offers Harmonix History Lesson: The Origins of Amplitude

50°
13w ago - Sony Product Manager Annette Gonzalez offered fans a Harmonix history lesson today outlining the origins of Amplitude.

To quote: It all began with a geometrical sketch on a white board.

Imagine if you had an octogonal tunnel covered in data. Musical data. Represented over time and space. The player controls a futuristic cyber ship floating through a three-dimensional wireframe.

Notes representing particular sounds from a song are represented across multiple tracks in gems. Beatmatching along these tracks and blasting away the gems releases these sounds, allowing the player to weave in various elements of the song and make music.

This would eventually become what we now know as FreQuency, the 2001 rhythm-action title released on PlayStation 2.

FreQuency made strides in innovation with its addictive, fast-paced, and undoubtedly challenging beatmatching gameplay (both single and multiplayer). FreQuency was also one of the first games to support the PS2 Network Adapter.

Though a title loved by fans, FreQuency didn't quite sell.

"When FreQuency shipped we thought it was going to be huge," said Greg LoPiccolo, Chief...

Llamasoft: TxK Out Today: The History, Development and Gameplay

50°
27w ago - Llamasoft Founder Jeff Minter confirmed that TxK is out today on PS Vita, with details on the title's history, development and PlayStation Vita gameplay below.

To quote: TxK is the latest in a particular genre of arcade-style shooters which can be described as "neo-retro".

These games are characterised by gameplay inspired by arcade games of old, but take advantage of modern hardware to provide graphics and audio that far surpass anything that was possible back in ancient times.

Often they take as inspiration some aspect of an older display style and, through modern graphics hardware and techniques, seek to create an experience that is evocative of its ancestry but far nicer-looking.

You've all seen games like "[Register or Login to view links]", where the enemies and player characters are made of glowing lines.

These line-based displays go back to an old, obsolete yet beautiful display technology that was used in the arcades, called "vector graphics".

Back then it was not possible to generate pixel-based displays that had a high resolution, and as a result images in games tended to look blocky, as if made out of bricks. "Vector graphics" was a different way of driving a graphics display, causing...
