91w ago - Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price has announced today that the Ratchet & Clank Collection for PS3 is going 1080p with multiplayer included!
To quote: It's amazing that it's been almost 10 years since the release of the original Ratchet & Clank on PlayStation 2.
A lot has changed since 2002, but your loyalty to our furry Lombax and his faithful robot companion has endured. As we reach the 10th Anniversary of Ratchet & Clank, we wanted to commemorate the achievements of the Ratchet & Clank saga.
Today, we're delighted to announce the Ratchet & Clank 10th Anniversary Celebration, which also simultaneously addresses the biggest current request from our fans: The Ratchet & Clank Collection. This will contain Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal - all remastered by Idol Minds, working closely with our team at Insomniac Games.
In addition to a full 1080p HD remaster (720p stereoscopic 3D support) of all three games and the inclusion of three Platinum Trophies, we're happy to confirm that the online competitive multiplayer from Up Your Arsenal will be included. Now you can check out the acclaimed multiplayer mode that many of you didn't get to experience the first time on PS2.
100w ago - Leader inXile CEO Brian Fargo has announced today alongside a video trailer that Choplifter HD will be hitting PS3 on PSN Tuesday and includes zombies!
To quote: I really get a kick out of the fact that I am now considered an "indie" again after all these years.
I have been making games for nearly 30 years, having built a top-five PC publishing house called Interplay around such major franchises as The Bard's Tale, Wasteland, Baldur's Gate, Fallout, Descent and more.
In the early days, I developed games for other companies and moved up the food chain to become a publisher so that I could make games "my way."
And here I sit, again readying our first major release in Choplifter HD as a digital publisher and having created the game the way I wanted. Our company tagline at Interplay was "By Gamers. For Gamers" and it is those same values we used in creating Choplifter HD.
Choplifter was a very important game when it was originally released back in 1982 and achieved #1 status at the time. Dan Gorlin, the original creator, really understood the humanness of saving little people from tough situations.
It was a great action game for sure, but there was something about saving those little guys. And certainly...
To quote: This is a little demo for libps3gui by me. It is basically a port of libwiigui by tantric to work with psl1ght. To compile it, you need psl1ght, tiny3d, libfreetype, libvorbis, libmpg123, libaudioplayer, and libogg (this is made to work with the current versions as of 3/19/2011, but hopefully wont be broken by future versions). The connect4 engine was written by Keith Pomakis.
It is intended to be used with the cursor (press L3 and use the left analog stick to move around), but it should be mostly functional just using the d-pad.
215w ago - Included on the District 9 Blu-ray disc available on December 29th, Sony has added a PS3 demo for God of War III for those who don't plan to check out the God of War III PS3 Demo on PSN.
Also included on the Blu-ray disc is a "Making of God of War III" video that becomes available once gamers complete the demo in its entirety.
To quote: "The Blu-Ray release of District 9, due December 29 (a bit later than the God of War Collection), will include a playable demo of God of War 3. Once you've played through the demo, a making-of featurette will be unlocked (for the game, not the movie).
While District 9 and God of War 3 are united in that they're both things that people presumably want to see, it strikes us as odd that this rather random collection is the first Blu-ray/game demo pairing for SCEA. The Watchmen movie and game actually related to one another in some way, and they came on separate discs."
