44w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has confirmed today that Assassin's Creed III: The Tyranny of King Washington will be hitting PS3 on February 19th, 2013.
To quote: A lot has changed in the world of Assassin's Creed III... with the introduction of our first single-player episodic DLC The Tyranny of King Washington this Tuesday, we figured we should reacquaint you with the hero you thought you knew.
In the shattered reality of The Tyranny of King Washington, the events that shaped a young Mohawk warrior into the heroic Connor of AC3 never happened, thrusting a confused Ratonhnhake:ton into a sometimes torturous, yet occasionally blissful, waking dream. Can he obliterate King Washington's demented reign?
To combat George Washington, the former champion of American freedom turned power-mad overlord, Ratonhnhake:ton will need to master new abilities:
• Power of the Bear - Fills Ratonhnhake:ton with the strength and fury of the mighty bear.
• Power of the Eagle - Delivers a burst of speed, empowering Ratonhnhake:ton with blinding agility.
• Power of the Wolf - Adopt the master camouflage of the wolf, rendering Ratonhnhake:ton undetectable.
• Warpaint - A symbol of power and courage enhancing Ratonhnhake:ton's abilities.
45w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan has confirmed today that Killzone: Mercenary hits PS Vita on September 17th alongside unveiling a new trailer and screenshots below!
To quote: Killzone: Mercenary is scheduled for a September 17, 2013 release in North America.
Killzone: Mercenary is a new first-person shooter in the Killzone series, developed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform and powered by the stunning Killzone engine.
Starting just after the ending of the original Killzone, and revisiting many of the events from the Killzone trilogy, the game puts players in the rugged combat boots of a mercenary named Arran Danner. Danner is a former UCA-soldier who has no qualms about taking on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.
When a seemingly routine mission to evacuate the Vektan Ambassador and his family in Pyrrhus goes awry, Danner discovers that the outcome of the war could very well depend on the fate of the Ambassador's young son.
With both sides going to increasingly desperate lengths to get hold of the boy, he begins to wonder whether the price of victory is really worth the paycheck.
We also have a brand-new trailer for you to enjoy:
45w ago - Sony Community Manager Ramone Russell at San Diego Studios has shared a video today spotlighting the hitting enhancements in MLB '13 The Show for PS3 today.
To quote: Hitting is such an important aspect in baseball, and it's an area we continually strive to make as realistic as possible. Last year we introduced our True Ball Physics engine to the franchise for ultra-realistic ball physics.
This year we've done even more work to really make this area of the game as dynamic as possible with true to life outcomes. Take a look at what we've done to make hitting in MLB '13 The Show more accessible to everyone.
We really want to make hitting more streamlined for players. Beginner mode allows people who have never played The Show - or have struggled with it - to learn the fundamentals of hitting. It's meant to teach you the basics of Plate Discipline, Pitch Recognition and Timing.
This mode uses adaptive A.I. that only advances as you do. If you take longer to get the hang of hitting in The Show, you won't be forced to advance. The A.I. will only advance once you've passed a certain threshold at each level.
In regards to the Push/Pull hitting Trajectories Engine, MLB.com...
