5w ago - Housemarque's Mikael Haveri shared some video footage today inside the explosions of Resogun on PS4 / PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: As final platform testing comes to an end, I'm here on behalf of Housemarque to share some new footage and a few development insights for Resogun, our incredible new shoot-em-up launching alongside PS4 on November 15th.
First off, a short video from the team telling you exactly what Resogun is about.
As the guys explained in the video, everything in Resogun is constructed from gazillions (too many to count) of 3D bricks/cubes, known as voxels.
Voxels aren't particularly new, but it's difficult and time consuming to build intricate structures with them, so designing the game worlds of Resogun has been a really interesting challenge.
Here (below) are some images showing some test buildings that we created.
The final worlds are, of course, much more sophisticated, but the cool thing these images illustrate is that the entire world in Resogun is literally a huge pile of bricks, begging to be blown up at any given moment. And one of the best things about Resogun is that stuff blows up all the time, and when stuff blows up in Resogun, it blows up BIG!
20w ago - ATLUS PR Manager John Hardin shared some video footage today that delves deep inside the wild world of Zenozoik in Zeno Clash II which arrives on PS3 today!
To quote: Zeno Clash II is a first-person brawler developed by ACE Team, a development studio founded by a trio of game-developing brothers from Chile.
The world they created for Zeno Clash II is a wondrous, colorful world filled with some of the most outlandish and eye-catching creations in all of gaming.
To catch players up a bit of the game's background - in the original Zeno Clash, the protagonist Ghat, a relatively normal looking humanoid, was one of many children of Father-Mother, a 12-foot tall bird-like creature of indeterminate gender who lead a very large and diverse family.
Through circumstance, Ghat learns that Father-Mother created their unique family by abducting babies and then raising them, forcing him to fight his siblings escape alone with the dangerous secret.
In the end, Ghat gains the aid of a cryptic, omniscient being known simply as the Golem, and Father-Mother is imprisoned after a final battle that reveals the truth and causes the family to disband. All this leaves the Golem to move forward with his mysterious agenda.
27w ago - Sucker Punch Technical Director Spencer Alexander posted up a video today showcasing the tech of Second Son on PS4 below.
To quote: E3 is almost upon us! Seems like yesterday, we revealed inFAMOUS: Second Son to the world. Since the announce event in New York, we here at Sucker Punch have been hard at work so we can show you more of Delsin Rowe, our new protagonist in action.
BTW, if you want more info on Second Son and if you haven't seen the June cover of GameInformer, you might want to check it out! GameInformer created a hub featuring multiple stories that bring Second Son to life on PlayStation 4.
Today, as part of our lead up to E3, we're letting you peer into our development process to bring the "E" into Emotion Capture (yep... took us all week to come up with that one) in the first installment of inSIDE Sucker Punch!
Gamers have grown to expect more than just detailed worlds with high poly-counts and slick graphics. They want more engaging content and a backstory, with great characters and actors that can give them life. This type of cinematic quality can only happen when the actor's performances can be captured with great detail.
At Sucker Punch we have sought to meet this demand by introducing...

44w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared a video demo which takes fans inside Skywalker Sound: Soul Sacrifice's Battle Theme below.
To quote: Back in December, we released a sneak-peek of the Skywalker Sound soundtrack recording video for Soul Sacrifice. As mentioned, the game's soundtrack is composed by Yasunori Mitsuda and Wataru Hokoyama, two of the most recognized composers in the industry.
Today. I'm excited to share a video introducing one of the scores Mitsuda-san composed:
Mitsuda-san was kind enough to provide us the following accompanying message:
"This was the very first battle music I composed, and I focused on making sure it fit the fighting theme of Soul Sacrifice. The battle style in this game is different from traditional RPGs and action games where the battles are not instantaneous, but rather extensive and you fight for a longer period of time.
Within those battles, you will face all sorts of situations where you can have the upper hand, or be at a disadvantage. So, in order to match these dramatic sequences, I concentrated on adding many different elements to each piece in order to create an exciting musical composition.
