3w ago - Today Sony's Dan Hsu shared a video and Q & A interview with Tim Schafer on why you need to check out Grim Fandango on PS4 and PS Vita below.

To quote: Tim Schafer is never "off." The funnyman game designer and founder of studio house Double Fine Productions is constantly cracking jokes, even when he's trying to be serious.

So when we had a chance to interview him about his upcoming adventure game, Grim Fandango Remastered, we didn't even try to play it straight (for the most part).





The original Grim Fandango originally came out over 16 years ago and became a cult classic. Now it's getting a full, fresh HD makeover for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, due out January 2015. But who should care? Schafer explains:

Q: I'm a 15-year-old gamer, and the original Grim Fandango came out before I was even born. Why should I play your old-man game?

Tim Schafer: When my older brother went away to college, I raided his record collection and randomly pulled out Led Zeppelin III. I had never heard Led Zeppelin before, so when the opening notes of Immigrant Song burrowed into my brain, I was not prepared.

And just minutes after Talion's first troubled steps back onto Middle-earth, the land of Mordor opens up into a breath-taking gallery of missions, power struggles, and awe-inspiring magic.

22w ago - Today Olga Ryzhko at Frogwares shared a video outlining four things PlayStation 4 fans need to know about Sherlock Holmes on PS4 below.

To quote: Hi PlayStation.Blog! This is Olga from Frogwares, and I get to tell you about our latest game, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments.

Fictional detectives rarely go gently into the night; devotees of the long-running Sherlock Holmes series never want to feel that "their" character has come to the end. They like to hope that there is a life for them beyond the Canon.





Inspired by classic literature and popular culture, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments turns back the clock for you to enjoy the continuing exploits of the most famous London-based consulting detective whose abilities border on the fantastic.

Plot-driven crime drama, Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is a pure investigation whodunit game that features brilliant detection, dreadful villains, and blood-curdling crimes. Six sophisticated cases, numerous suspects, right or wrong charges, possibility to fail or succeed, moral choices to influence the gameplay, and alternative endings - you play Sherlock Holmes at your own peril.

Here are four things you need to know about Sherlock...
