To quote: Hey everyone, I'm back with some great news- Twisted Metal's gone gold in North America!

We - the crew over at Eat Sleep Play and Sony Santa Monica - have been working so hard for the past few years and it's tough to express just how happy we are to be one enormous step closer to putting Twisted Metal in your hands this coming Valentine's Day.

Hitman: Absolution PS3 Q&A: IO Interactive Goes for the Throat

300°
149w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a Hitman: Absolution PS3 Q&A today where IO Interactive goes for the throat!

To quote: By valuing stealth, careful observation, and meticulous planning over the run-and-gun bulletstorms of its contemporaries, the Hitman series has earned a sizable fan base over its long and celebrated career.

As coldblooded antihero Agent 47, the player quietly stalks his prey through a Kafka-esque maze of guards and security measures, donning disguises, blending in with the crowd, and evading or subduing threats in order to efficiently fulfill his latest contract kill.

The key phrase here is blending in; in Hitman, to stand out is to be detected, and to be detected is to die in a hail of gunfire.

This tense, analytical formula has served Hitman well over many successful sequels. But the steep learning curve and unforgiving stealth segments have also proven polarizing, preventing some newcomers from embracing what is by all accounts a uniquely rewarding stealth-action title.

Taking a cue from 2011's successful launch of Deus Ex: Human Revolution - another stealth game that sought to broaden its appeal without betraying its roots - Hitman: Absolution seeks to have its bloody cake and eat it, too.

ID Software Goes Hands-On with Rage for PlayStation 3

200°
168w ago - Today SCEE's Roland Fauster has shared some hands-on details from ID Software spotlighting Rage for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: When Rage is released this October, it will be the end of a long journey for the game. It has been four years since [Register or Login to view links] first announced their large demo project for their new proprietary ID Tech 5 Engine. Nevertheless, the popularity of the project has never waned.

Two weeks ago at Gamescom, we were finally able to try the game out ourselves at the Bethesda stand and gain our own impression of the exciting FPS/Racing/RPG crossover.

Our gaming session begins right at the start of the game. As one of the few survivors of a meteorite strike, we are fighting our way on foot and in exhilarating dune buggies through an inhospitable world, when we are suddenly attacked by a mutant, and quickly believe we are in a realm of the dead, when a nice, human-looking inhabitant saves us at the last moment. Very friendly! Naturally, we feel indebted and are prepared to carry out some assignments for him.

This means getting rid of deformed mutants from certain buildings, and we do this in classic shoot'em up gameplay fashion, which is really enjoyable, but Rage would only be half as fun if you didn't...
