8w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here today spotlighting the four-player carnage in Helldivers on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms below.

To quote: To quote: With a game of [Register or Login to view links] going, shouts, curses, and laughter are never far behind. Arrowhead's top-down shooter is coming to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita this Summer, bolstered by brutally difficult missions and gratifying multiplayer design.

This is a game about outfitting an elite squad, dropping into procedurally-generated battlefields, and fighting to survive. The high level of challenge and the "always-on" friendly fire make victory all the sweeter.

But at a PlayStation event last week, I had more time to watch groups of four players (including Arrowhead's own Designer Patrik Lasota) tackle the alien menace together. The results showcase just how smartly Helldivers has been put together, and how players must, must, work as a team.

For those that missed our original hands-on of Helldivers, the basics are easy to grasp for any passing fan of twin-stick shooters. Move with one stick, aim with the other. Each soldier in the squad had a default...
 

Video: Fourth-Person Puzzler Pavilion is Coming to PS4 and PS Vita

50°
19w ago - Visiontrick Media Co-founder and Creative Director Henrik Flink posted up a video today of their fourth-person puzzler Pavilion coming to PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: During Tokyo Game Show last year, we (Henrik and Rickard), together with Sony Japan, announced that Pavilion would be coming to PS4 and PS Vita in 2014. Still, most people might not have heard that much about Pavilion, so we felt it was time to shed some light on the game.

"Pavilion, the fourth-person puzzling adventure from Visiontrick Media, throws you directly into its mysterious world without any text tutorials or beginning explanations. It is a puzzle game portrayed through exploration and audio-visual imagery. By interacting and observing you gradually, bit by bit, learn things about both the puzzling gameplay and the world itself."

Let's talk a little bit about the term "fourth-person," which is something we've used over the past year to describe the way you interact with the main character. Basically, the character is not your avatar and you are not in control of him.

Instead, you have to find different ways - mostly through environmental interaction - to guide, influence or even force him to explore and fulfill the purpose of the world. This indirect control is what we refer to when we say...

Jacob Jones on PS Vita: Four Tips for Exploring Camp Eagle Feather

50°
60w ago - Lucid Games Founder Nick Davies shared four tips below for exploring Camp Eagle Feather in Jacob Jones on PS Vita today.

To quote: Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery is a 3D puzzle adventure game for PS Vita, following the adventures of Jacob Jones and his mythical Bigfoot friend as they try to solve the mystery of Camp Eagle Feather.

The game is full of ingenious puzzles to test even the smartest among you, so the team at Lucid Games have provided some helpful hints to make sure you don't get stuck!

Don't forget to tilt!

As Mr. Grimmel will tell you, there's a reward for picking up all of the litter around Camp Eagle Feather. For every soda can you find, he'll give you a credit so you can phone in for some help. The more credits you spend, the better the hint you'll get.

Some soda cans might be out in the open, but if you tilt your PS Vita you may find some hidden on top, or behind other items. There are 130 soda cans hidden around the world, and finding them all won't be easy.

Make a note.

A pen and paper is always handy for taking notes, but in Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery we've given you a memo function so you can take notes as you play. Your memo can be a very handy tool indeed for solving the...
