PlayStation Now Beta Game Loading Times Leaked, New Improvements

50°
3d ago - Some PlayStation Now Beta game loading times have been leaked from an anonymous participant and have since been compared to the previous phase of testing with details below.

To quote from DualShockers (linked above): "Back in February a reader that wished to remain anonymous sent us a list of the loading times of all the games that were available in the first phase of the beta of PlayStation Now.

The beta has now moved on to the second phase, with a whole lot of new games available and even some returning ones. The same reader took it upon himself to clock the loading times again using the same internet connection and shared them with us.

Like last time, each timing in the list below is from the launch of the game to the splash screen. We were provided a video as evidence, but we were asked not to publish it to protect the tipster’s identity (and account).

Between parenthesis you can also see the loading times of the returning games in the first phase of the beta, for comparison’s sake.

Current PlayStation Now Beta List:

  • Shadow of the Colossus - 46.72 (old time: 53.98)
  • WipeOut HD - 57.19
  • Dead Nation - 40.05
  • PixelJunk Monsters - 39.90
  • Shatter - 38.86 (old time: 39.77)
  • Guacamelee! –...

 

MoneyPaw Games: Retro Import Hyper Crazy Climber Out Next Week

50°
1w ago - MoneyPaw Games PR Manager Ryan Olsen announced today that retro import Hyper Crazy Climber is out on PSN next week with details below.

To quote: MonkeyPaw Games has another import retro title ready. You better have a good grip because you'll be climbing your way to the stratosphere. Our newest game is Hyper Crazy Climber, a series that has roots all the way back to the start of arcades.

Hyper Crazy Climber is a sequel to Crazy Climber. As you likely guessed, with Hyper Crazy Climber the challenges are more hyper, crazier, and climb...ier.

The goal for each level is to start at the bottom of a tower and navigate the level while avoiding obstacles to reach the top. It might not sound too difficult, but that isn't the case at all.

The controls were designed to be difficult to master, and you'll need to operate the left and right side of your character independently to reach the summits.

It'll take expert hand-eye coordination to gracefully climb your way to the peak of beanstalks, clock towers, and other tall structures.

Hyper Crazy Climber originally launched in Japan in 1996 for the PSone. It's a continuation of the arcade games, and the first time a new entry in the Crazy Climber series found a home on consoles.

Here are some gaming...

Guacamelee - Super Turbo Championship Edition is Coming to PS4

6w ago - DrinkBox Studios Lead Designer Greg Lesky announced today that Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition is coming to PS4.

Below are the details, to quote: Hey everyone. Greg here from DrinkBox, where we've been locked away in our studio hiding from the harsh Canadian winter and dreaming of hot sun, sandy deserts, and bandanna-clad cacti.

We're excited to finally announce we've been working on a new version of Guacamelee for PS4 – the Super Turbo Championship Edition!

If you haven't played Guacamelee before, we're talking about a Metroidvania, brawling platformer where you play as a Luchador that harnesses the powers of a legendary mask, two meaty fists, and an arsenal of wrestling moves to battle an evil army of the undead. But did you also know you can turn into a chicken? And nothing hinders the forces of darkness more than being pecked in the knee by angry poultry.

If you have played before, you may be wondering "What makes this Edition so super? So turbo? Or so championshippy?" For starters, let's chat about new powers.

First up - INTENSO! (When you say it, picture you're a soccer announcer screaming "GOOOOOOAL" into a microphone. It works. Try it.) Pummel baddies into bone meal to fill your combo meter, then unleash INTENSO for a brief (but highly...
