9w ago - FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden posted up a video today showcasing Velocity 2X on PS4 which outlines how the team leans from their audience of fellow gamers.
To quote: Hey folks. We had such a good time showcasing Velocity 2X at the Eurogamer Expo, we'd like to share our experience with you!
First of all, we managed to find the courage to jump on stage to talk about Velocity 2X in a Developer Session. For those who missed it, we talked about how we've approached making a PS Minis game desirable for PS4.
Velocity 2X takes everything that worked in Velocity Ultra and applies it to a side-scrolling platformer. That's right - in Velocity 2X you can get out of your ship to run around on foot.
You can also teledash through obstacles and throw a personal teleporter to reach high ledges and solve puzzles.
We've also revealed the new enemy in the series: the evil Vokh. They're massive, fast, and tricky to defeat because of their advanced shield technology. However, as you'll see from the video below, Kai's teledash creates a spacetime warp that disrupts their shield temporarily, allowing you to get some cheeky shots from behind! Watch some pre-alpha platforming gameplay here:

9w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff announced alongside a video that Dishonored Game of the Year Edition hits PS3 tomorrow.
To quote: It's hard to believe this week marks the one year anniversary of Dishonored's release. it's been rewarding to see so many people people get the game Arkane set out to develop.
It's wonderful and very humbling to see the game win numerous Game of the Year accolades (and be able to release a "Game of the Year Edition"), but there's even more satisfaction in hearing fans embracing the fiction and emergent gameplay.
When Arkane was making the final push on finishing the game, their building excitement to see the game in the wild was palpable - like children on Christmas Eve. Visions of YouTube speedruns danced in their heads.
They weren't disappointed. Launch day and the months that followed provided endless entertainment - seeing the variety of ways players took on the role of Corvo - non-lethal playthroughs, absolutely brutal and literally unthinkable killer moves, and everything in between.
Amazing cosplay, fan-fiction, and fan art embracing provided icing on the cake. You guys really like The Outsider.
