Sony Announces Close Castles Coming to PS4, Play at PS Experience

50°
2w ago - Sony's Asher Vollmer announced that Close Castles is coming to PS4, and PlayStation 4 fans can play it at PS Experience!

To quote: I have a love/hate relationship with real time strategy games. I love them, but I hate playing them.

Let's face it: RTSes are miserable pain engines designed to give players the worst possible experience. They're kind of fun (though deeply stressful) right up until the first interaction with another player and then it's all downhill for the next forty-or-so minutes.

You play until someone gives up. They are lonely exercises in sadomasochism. Anyway hello. My name is Asher Vollmer and I intend to fix all that with my new game, Close Castles.

I made [Register or Login to view links] because I love small, minimalist games. Close Castles is no different. The games are incredibly quick: they average around three minutes each on the fastest game speed.

Buliding the game for a controller has inspired me to make the controls as simple as possible. You move your cursor around the field and press a button to build structures. What you build and where you build it will determine you and your opponent's collective fate.

The game is built for local multiplayer, so there's no hidden information. This means...
 

Sony Announces Wander: A Non-combat MMO Coming to PS4

100°
4w ago - Writer & Character Designer Crystal Flinn announced today that a non-combat MMO is coming to PS4 called Wander with details below.

To quote: Hello, everyone! This is Crystal from Wander, here to tell you a little bit about ourselves and what we're doing way down here on the bottom of the Earth (AKA Australia).

Wander is the brainchild of Melbourne resident Loki Davison, who noticed a shocking absence of games that didn't primarily focus on violence in order to tell a story, and decided there was a niche that desperately needed to be filled.

That - coupled with a slight preoccupation with flight, travelling, and music - led to the conception of Wander, an MMO game that lets you explore a majestic environment in several different forms - a giant tree, a soaring griffin, a sea creature and more.

"I was somewhat of a nomad for a long time. I wandered around Central Asia, Siberia, the Arctic and Himalayas. Growing up I played a lot of MUDs (text based MMO games) and wanted to make a game that was atmospheric, relaxing and multiplayer. Wander draws on a lot of that experience. I wanted to collaboratively explore in a game." - Loki

Sony Goes Hands on with Guilty Gear Xrd Sign on PlayStation 4

50°
5w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands on today with Guilty Gear Xrd Sign on PlayStation 4.

Below are the details, to quote: Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- for PS4 feels like high school. And that, surprisingly, is high praise.

I obsessed over Guilty Gear X when it launched on PS2. My friends and I picked apart every fighter on the roster, experimented with particular match-ups, rocked out to the soundtrack for hours, and even developed inside jokes based on the fighter intro quips.

And with Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign-, the team at ARC System Works is plugging a high-voltage generator into the series and flipping the switch with a smirk.

The latest Guilty Gear, which hits PS4 and PS3 on December 16th, embraces everything about the series' roots while reworking every visual component on screen. Even after spending time with an early build of the PS4 version, Xrd -Sign- is a flood of great memories.

If you're new to the series, Guilty Gear is a highly stylized 2D fighter with one of the most eccentric rosters to ever grace a fighting game. Do you want a charming vampire boxer? How about a pirate girl with dolphins for weapons?

Or perhaps a tall, repenting surgeon with a bag over his head and a giant scalpel in hand? Yes, series favorites like...
