The Darker Side of London in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments

50°
13w ago - Frogwares developer Olga Ryzhko shared a fresh video today spotlighting the darker side of London in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments below.

To quote: Hi! I'm Olga from Frogwares. After having explored Holmes' new skills in previous trailers for Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments - coming from September 30th on PS4 and PS3.

I'm delighted to introduce today the complexity of not only the cases, but the people of Crimes & Punishments. It's a trailer about empathy, blame, and punishment - not of the suspect, but of Holmes himself, as he lives with the decisions made throughout the game.





Crimes & Punishments introduces moral changes to the Sherlock Holmes series. Not only are you charged with selecting the suspect who committed the crime, but also what to do with him, either handing him to the police or empathizing with his or her situation, setting them free after a dressing down in true Holmes style. Their fate will be left in your hands, with all the responsibility on Holmes' conscience.

Behind the guise of the prim and proper, Victorian England is a characteristically dark place, with its denizens as layered in extravagant clothing as they are in lies, deceit, and jealousy of their brethren....
 

Ready At Dawn: Building a New London for The Order: 1886 on PS4

69w ago - Ready At Dawn Studios CEO and Creative Director Ru Weerasuriya announced today that they are building a new London for The Order: 1886 on PS4.

To quote: When creating our alternate history in The Order: 1886, our goal was to make the environment as believable as possible while at the same time adding our own twist to real places.

With the release of our trailer back at E3, we hinted at our vision of an alternate London.

This Neo-Victorian London will seem familiar to everyone, however, advances in technology will take center stage in many ways as you navigate the city. One of the main examples is the advent of electricity throughout the city, well before its time.

Gas lamps are replaced by electric street lights. Everywhere you go, you can hear the hum of electricity running through the city.

The London subway system is present in our version of the world, but it's much more advanced than it was in real life. Certain sections of the subway system run above ground in between buildings throughout the city. Electric signs line the streets making some areas of London almost look like Times Square.

The other big change you will witness is in the skyline of London. Although the familiar sights of Big Ben, St. Paul's, and the Tower Bridge are present,...
 

Video: London Riots Engulf Sony DADC UK Warehouse in Flames

500°
175w ago - Today Sony has reported that their DADC UK distribution warehouse in north London was engulfed in flames as violence in the capital continued for a third night.

Below is some video footage courtesy of CoolChrisVilla via YouTube, and although this isn't really PS3 news per se, it will definitely impact the gaming side of Sony's empire in the UK.

To quote: The music industry has become the latest victim of the riots ripping through London after a 20,000 sq metre distribution warehouse owned by Sony was burnt to the ground by rioters, destroying vast quantities of stock.

“We can confirm that the Sony DADC UK distribution centre in Enfield has been damaged by a fire which was reported around 11:30pm, 8th August. There have been no injuries to employees,” Sony said in a statement.

“The fire is under control but can be described as ‘smouldering’, consequently no one can enter the facility. Therefore at this time we are unable to confirm the extent of the damage or the cause until the fire is fully extinguished and a full investigation can be carried out by authorities.”

The Digital Audio Disc Corporation centre is the group’s sole distribution base in the UK. The impact however will be felt beyond Sony operations as the...
 

Video: Tron: Legacy for PlayStation 3 Premieres in London

50°
210w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a video clip today of the Tron: Legacy PlayStation 3 premiere in London.

To quote: Few films evoked the spirit of arcade gaming like the original Tron movie back in the 80s and its sequel, Tron: Legacy, is looking to capture the imaginations of 21st Century gamers with lavish special effects, fast-paced action and some of the best use of stereoscopic 3D I've seen.

Last night I attended the UK premiere in London and managed to grab a couple of pictures on my mobile phone (sorry about the quality). The first is outside the cinema and the second is inside, as the director and the cast spoke to the audience.

I enjoyed it, especially how the 3D effect ramped up when you're in the 'Tron' world; a stellar soundtrack from Daft Punk; a surprise appearance from on of my favourite actors, Michael Sheen; and the 'digital de-aging' of Jeff Bridges, showing how spookily real CG face animation has become.

The film goes out to cinemas on general release on 17 December and the game, Tron: Evolution, was released on PlayStation 3 last week.

Here's a trailer:
