1d ago - Crystal Dynamics Executive Producer Scot Amos announced today that the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition hits PS4 on January 28th, 2014.
Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone, I'm Scot Amos, executive producer at Crystal Dynamics. On January 28th of 2014, we're bringing the award-winning Tomb Raider experience to PS4 in the form of Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.
Recreating our franchise for PS4 was a true labor of love for the team. The critically acclaimed story and action adventure remain solidly intact and as riveting as ever. However, we took the opportunity to use the increased horsepower of the hardware to create the Tomb Raider we always envisioned.
We had a core team here at Crystal collaborating with the super talented teams at United Front Games (who worked with Square Enix on Sleeping Dogs) and Nixxes (whom Crystal has partnered with since the Legacy of Kain days). Together, we pulled the game apart and painstakingly rebuilt it with enhanced visual fidelity, realism, and a new immersive richness to the world.
Getting our gameplay up to native 1080p meant increasing all of our texture resolutions by over 4x so the details and nuances can be seen in their full glory.
However, it's subtleties like our subsurface scattering technology - how we...
3w ago - Appy Entertainment Brand Director Paul O'Connor announced that Trucks and Skulls hits PlayStation Mobile today.
Below are the details, to quote: Appy Entertainment is excited to bring our award-winning physics puzzler, Trucks & Skulls, to PlayStation Mobile later on today. This is a subtle game that invites you to explore your feelings and pick pretty flowers, a game that firmly positions itself at the center of the games-as-art debate, a game that...
Oh, wait. It's not that at all. Trucks & Skulls is the game where you SMASH NITRO-BURNING MONSTER TRUCKS INTO PILES OF LAUGHING SKULLS.
We made Trucks & Skulls because we wanted to blow stuff up. It really was that simple. We felt the physics-puzzler genre could use a good boot to the backside with a game full of things that explode, so we created the loudest, most obnoxious, most explosive game possible. Trucks & Skulls is a fuel-soaked, heavy metal ball of boom. Playing our game is guaranteed to raise your blood pressure, and lower your IQ.
The physics model used by the game is quite sophisticated, but you should check your sophistication at the door - this really is an angry and exuberant game that doesn't take itself seriously. There's no hidden meaning. Trucks are good, Skulls are bad. Destroy Skulls!
4w ago - NIS America Marketing Coordinator David Alonzo announced today that Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc hits PS Vita on February 11th, 2014.
To quote: Hey, doods! It's your humble Prinny David from NIS America here to school you with a cohesive thesis on our upcoming title, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc - a revised and revamped edition of the very first Danganronpa that appeared on PSP in Japan in 2010.
The game is set to release on February 11th in North America, exclusively on PS Vita - just in time for Valentine's Day! You guys ready to fall in love with some ultimate brutality?
In Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, you take on the role of Makoto Naegi - an excruciatingly ordinary teenager who one day finds himself accepted into Hope's Peak Academy. This is an ultra-prestigious school meant only for the best and the brightest and basically anyone but the ordinary.
Some of Makoto's fellow classmates include Leon, the Ultimate Baseball Star; Chihiro, the Ultimate Programmer; and Sayaka, the Ultimate Pop Sensation, so what's a guy like Makoto doing here?
Looks like Makoto's got enough to deal with trying to find his place amongst Japan's teen elite, but things get a little tougher when he suddenly falls unconscious and finds himself rudely awakened by an evil...

To quote: EDF! EDF! EDF! Just shouting out this simple phrase brings back fond memories of Earth Defense Force 2017, and now I'm pumped to share more details about the launch of Earth Defense Force 2025 in February of next year. In particular, what fans can expect from some of the upcoming weapon packs that will be available via pre-order or DLC.
We've been on tour with Earth Defense Force 2025 for the last few months, showing off all its awesome features at events like E3, PAX Prime, and New York Comic-Con. Fans continuously ask us if the DLC from Japan will be available in North America and Europe. And I can proudly say "yes!" We'll make sure all content from Japan makes it over here at some point, and we'll have more details on all of that in the near future.
In the meantime, we're pleased to announce that customers at GameStop can start pre-ordering Earth Defense Force 2025 tomorrow, and will receive a special Weapons Pack for free.
