19w ago - Killzone Community Editor Victor Zuylen made available a Killzone: Shadow Fall PS4 Q&A today detailing the creation of Echo and Sinclair.
Below are the details, to quote: As we announced earlier this month, we've secured the amazing talents of David Harewood and Jamie Gray Hyder to portray two key characters from Killzone: Shadow Fall - VSA director Sinclair and Helghast intelligence operative Echo.
But who exactly are Sinclair and Echo, and how did their character designs come about? We asked Assistant Art Director Dan Calvert to shed some light on these enigmatic characters.
PlayStation.Blog: Who are Sinclair and Echo, and what roles do they play in KZ:SF?
Dan Calvert: Sinclair is the head of the Vektan Security Agency - his job is to make sure the balance of power favors Vekta without escalating the cold war into open conflict. Part spymaster - part diplomat, and with a shrewd strategic mind, he is Lucas' direct CO and mentor.
Like Lucas, Echo is an elite operative tasked to cross the wall, and her mission puts them on a collision course. She is extremely dangerous; an equal but opposite reflection of the player character.
PSB: How did the design of these characters evolve?
87w ago - Fun Bits Interactive Team Lead Chris Millar has announced today that news of a free prequel PS3 DLC dubbed Bakuki's Lair with Patch 1.01 for Escape Plan.
To quote: On April 10th, Escape Plan owners will receive Bakuki's Lair, the first DLC Pack for Escape Plan, via download of Patch 1.01. This free DLC Pack adds 19 prequel puzzle rooms to the adventures of Lil and Laarg.
Our hapless heroes' journey begins anew with Lil and Laarg trapped in a hazardous sausage factory, where they will become bratwurst if they don't bail. You'll need to swipe for your life through a handful of dastardly designed puzzles in this latest update.
Lil is doomed... unless Laarg can figure out how this machine works
Bakuki's Lair is just one of the benefits of the upcoming patch. Escape Plan Patch 1.01 is a meaty new addition, with a host of tweaks and improvements based on player feedback.
Patch 1.01 allows for more pin-point accuracy on tap blocks, as well as an adjustment to the game's star rating system. We are also laying the foundation for a lot of exciting updates for Lil and Laarg in the future.
Laarg is definitely not in a safe spot

115w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has revealed some details today on Ruin for PS Vita, including the lairs, relics and the social web as follows:
Ruin (working title) was last seen on the E3 2011 PlayStation stage, when the presenter wirelessly transferred his PS Vita game session to a PS3 without missing a frame of the action.
As technically impressive as Ruin's cross-platform compatibility is, I've learned that it's only the beginning of what co-developers Idol Minds and SCE San Diego Studios are planning for this ambitious multiplayer action-RPG.
Ruin is still early in development, but it's being eagerly anticipated for its PS Vita-to-PS3 cross-compatibility, addictive action-RPG gameplay, and expansive social features.
Ruin's developers are quietly building a wide, deep social network designed to keep you interacting whether you're on the couch, on the bus, or someplace in-between. Travis Williams, Ruin's energetic senior producer, walked me through the game's social ambitions several weeks ago at a media showing in New York City.
From the earliest days of Ruin's development process, Williams told me, the development team was motivated to find a way to make its multiplayer competitive mode accessible and socially sticky – important considerations...

To quote: Today we are unveiling Sorcerer's Lair, a brand new ZEN Pinball table! It has been awhile since our last blog post, but we hope you have been enjoying Marvel Pinball and keeping your skills sharp on other ZEN Pinball tables.
All eight of our studio pinball teams have been hard at work over the past few months developing new tables.
Set in an ancient Citadel that is controlled by an evil Sorcerer, you play as a brother and sister pair who find themselves caught in the Sorcerer's spells and traps.
It is up to you and your ghost sidekick, Whisper, to take down skeletons, spiders and ghosts as you try to defeat the Sorcerer and restore peace to the Citadel.
This fantasy themed table is full of hidden modes and secret unlocks, so it will take some time to really discover the intricacies of Sorcerer's Lair.
As you have come to expect from every ZEN Pinball table, there is no shortage of interactive 3D objects, multiple modes of play, secret unlocks, online multiplayer competition...
