51w ago - Activision Publishing Producer Matt Hohl has confirmed that an Angry Birds Trilogy: Anger Management Pack hits PSN today, with details below as follows:
Greetings, PlayStationeers! The holidays are just around the corner, and if you're anything like us, you'll have a bit of free time on your hands to relax on the couch and curl up with a nice video game.
That's why we're flinging you all the details for the first DLC for Angry Birds Trilogy, landing on the PlayStation Network on December 18th.
The Anger Management pack lets you pop the pigs across 130 additional levels from some of our favorite Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons episodes, including Birdday Party, Ham 'O' Ween, Wreck the Halls, Year of the Dragon, Cherry Blossom, and Piglantis. It also features full PlayStation Move support and, yes, adds new trophies to the game.
A new playable character joins your flock in this collection, as well - the Orange Bird. Don't judge this small bird by its feathers, because Orange Bird packs a walloping surprise. His special power lets him rapidly expand up to a massive size, shoving aside nearby enemies and obstacles!
All of this is in addition to the new cutscenes, unique animated backgrounds, and hundreds of levels and hours of gameplay already caged within...
51w ago - Sega of America Associate Brand Manager Aaron Webber has announced that Sonic & All-Stars Racing hits PS Vita today, inviting fans to nab bonus DLC.
To quote: Why hello there, PS Vita owners! We heard you guys were hungry for an awesome multiplayer Vita racing game... and we're here to deliver. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed hits PS Vita today, and we're super-excited to share the game with all of you!
The game is out now both in stores and also on PlayStation Store. As you can probably guess, the game also isn't your average kart racer. The reason we have that fancy "Transformed" in the name is because your vehicle is going to transform in every single race: from a car to a boat to a plane!
My last few blogs here revealed quite a few old school Sega fans, so it's worth noting that the entire roster is essentially a love letter to gamers. Beyond your traditional Sonic cast, we've included the triumphant return of Vyse from Skies of Arcadia (a personal favorite of mine), Gilius from Golden Axe, NiGHTS, and many more. We've even got Wreck-it Ralph included as a playable character. (Don't worry, though - he's not going Turbo.)
One of the things I personally like most about the races is that "Transformed" doesn't just apply to your vehicles. It applies to the tracks, too!...
51w ago - Vice President of Development for Creat Studios Scott Hyman shared a video today reminding fans that Labyrinth Legends hits PlayStation Network tomorrow.
To quote: Hey again, PlayStation faithful! Scott here from Creat Studios to remind you all that our next PlayStation Network game, Labyrinth Legends, comes out tomorrow in North America.
Everyone here is very excited to bring you our new fast-paced, quirky, addictive, hackin' and slashin' dungeon crawling adventure.
We've packed tons of hidden treasure and weapons, concealed traps, tricky puzzles, mummies, zombies and monsters into those ancient tombs to give you your $9.99 worth. Enjoy spanning the globe and unearthing the buried wealth of long-lost civilizations.
You'll discover a few fun twists, such as the professor companion to your daring adventurer. He's an important part of solving some brain teasers, but he does have a tendency to wander off into trouble. Be sure to keep an eye on him.
What if lone adventuring isn't enough? Labyrinth Legends features three different local multiplayer modes for up to four players. Plus leaderboards and full Trophy support, too.
And here's something new. We're running a fan art contest. Check out our blog...
