2d ago - Lab Zero Games CEO Peter Bartholow posted up some new videos today announcing that Big Band is coming to Skullgirls Encore on PS3 this Tuesday.

To quote: He's almost here: Big Band, Skullgirls Encore's first male character, arrives for free next Tuesday, April 22nd!

Once a regular beat cop known as Ben Birdland, he fell flat when he got on the wrong side of New Meridian's corrupt police force. Birdland was broken and bent out of shape by his former colleagues, but was tuned up by Dr. Avian and ASG Lab 8. Now he is armed with a full ensemble of pneumatic weaponry, transforming him into the full fortissimo instrument of justice: "Big Band."

Thanks to the incredible support of Skullgirls' fans, Big Band is the second of 5 additional characters funded by Lab Zero's Indiegogo campaign to be added to Skullgirls Encore. Big Band is Skullgirls's first male character, and lives up to his name with unique gameplay mechanics that take advantage of his tremendous size and musical motif.





Big Band's a high risk / high reward sort of character - he has a versatile and powerful moveset...
 

Voofoo Studios Announces Pure Chess is Out This April 15th on PS4

1w ago - Voofoo Studios Creative Producer Shaun Read officially announced today that Pure Chess is out this April 15th on PS4 with details below.

To quote: You can literally smell the excitement here at VooFoo towers, and it's not (only) due to the lack of personal hygiene time we've had as of late. We've teamed up with publisher Ripstone to bring you our latest, greatest version of Pure Chess, which hits PS4 tomorrow. And we're extremely proud of our baby.

If you don't know who we are, VooFoo Studios is a small team of passionate developers based in sunny Birmingham, right in the heart of England. We've always prided ourselves on making highly playable, photo-realistic games, and thanks to the power of the PS4 hardware we've been able to turn the dial up to eleven.

Displayed at 1080p and running at a silky-smooth 60 frames per second, Pure Chess on PS4 is a visual tour-de-force. We've doubled the texture sizes, added many extra layers of post-processing, added contact shadows, and applied ultra-realistic depth-of-field... which is a rather boring way of saying that this is a seriously good looking chess game! Couple this with a massively improved custom networking system to provide a much slicker online experience and we're confident you'll love Pure Chess just as much as we do.

2w ago - Spiders Studio Project Manager Walid Miled revealed a fresh new combat trailer for Bound by Flame on PS4 today!

To quote: Hello, readers! This is Walid, producer at Spiders Studio. I'm very proud to tell you about Spiders' latest game, and our first RPG for PS4, Bound by Flame. We plan to launch on May 9th for PS3 and PS4.

Today, we decided we'd focus a little more on the game's combat and show off some PS4 footage for the first time.

This video is brand new and 100% pure gameplay - nothing pre-rendered - and should give you a little taste of the combat before we debut an epic combat trailer that covers all the combat mechanics and fighting styles.

You'll catch a glimpse of all the possibilities Bound by Flame offers in combat: Stealth, crossbow, fireballs, and a two-handed axe and hammer.





In Bound by Flame, the combat system lets you instantly switch between three stances (Fighter, Ranger, and Pyromancer), allowing you to adapt to the enemy you're facing on the fly.

We also showcase some of the creatures you'll be fighting. There's a lot of them out there, and each has its own characteristics and tendencies in combat.

The array of weapons in Bound by Flame...
