16w ago - Vlambeer's Rami Ismail announced today at Gamescom 2013 that Wasteland Kings is hitting PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2014.
To quote: Vlambeer has been around for almost three years.
It's sort of a weird realization for the two of us that the past three years of our lives – practically every moment after we decided to run a games company full time - has been dedicated to making the games people know us for.
It's been an amazing run that's taken us from extreme highs to emotional lows, and introduced us to so many amazing people - whether they're developers or industry or fans.
Vlambeer is something weird. You see, the two of us are polar opposites. Whereas JW is an artistic and creative force full of weird ideas, I tend to do business and programming. If you've ever put two people like that in a single room, you know they don't tend to get along well.
That was true for the two of us as well, and we created this third person that resulted from the collision between us. That third person is what Vlambeer truly is - it's neither Jan Willem nor me. It's a separate "person."
The reason I'm explaining all this is because it is important to explain what the game we just announced for PS4 and PS Vita is.
16w ago - Arrowhead Game Studios CEO and Game Director Johan Pilestedt posted up a video today at Gamescom 2013 announcing that Helldivers is coming to PS4, PS3 and PlayStation Vita in 2014.
To quote: You may know of Arrowhead Game Studios from our previous games like Magicka and today we're excited to announce that we've teamed up with Sony Computer Entertainment and Foster City Studios to create our next game!
So, for all of you out there, both new fans and old, I give you Helldivers. Built for both single-player campaigns and up to four player co-op missions, Helldivers is a top-down shooter set in a satirical and dystopian future where mankind is ruled by a managed democracy.
Of course, this world also happens to be in a perpetual war against three alien species, one of which we revealed in our Gamescom trailer!
As part of the elite unit called the Helldivers, you choose your deployment zone and dive into battle on procedurally-generated battlefields. Once there, utilize overpowered weapons and Stratagems to defeat the enemies of mankind.
Working together as a team will be vital, whether calling in strikes or placing weapons, each action must be totally synchronized to achieve objectives....

Below are the details, as follows: Hello travelers! The dream finally becomes a reality, as PlayStation, Gearbox Software and 2K announces today at Gamescom that the addictive first person shooter-looter mayhem of Borderlands 2 will be coming to PS Vita.
I watched as Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software, stood on stage at the Rezzed show in the UK a year ago and told fans that, with PlayStation's support, he'd love to see Borderlands 2 on PS Vita. For the last year, Gearbox Software, 2K, and PlayStation have been inundated with emails, tweets, forum posts and more from passionate gamers across the world pleading for a PS Vita version of Borderlands 2.
You spoke, we listened, and with the wonderful collaboration between 2K, PlayStation and the team at Iron Galaxy Studios - makers of indie fighting game Divekick - we can finally make Borderlands 2 on PS Vita a reality!
For those of you new to the critically acclaimed shooting-and-looting mayhem of Borderlands 2, which won more than 55 editorial awards in 2012, you'll be picking from four uniquely-skilled Vault Hunters - Axton the Commando, Maya the Siren, Salvador the Gunzerker...

Below are the details, to quote: Hi RPG and indie fans! We're excited to announce that Rainbow Skies is coming exclusively to PS3 and PS Vita in 2014.
Rainbow Skies is an indirect sequel to our RPG from last year, Rainbow Moon, which was nominated as the "Best Indie Game" in the PSN Gamers' Choice Awards 2013.
Taking a lot of fan feedback into consideration, we've been working on Rainbow Skies for nearly a year and are now eager to tell you more about the project.
First, Rainbow Skies is a new game that takes place in a new world, with new characters, monsters, and a story that isn't linked to its predecessor. The world of Rainbow Skies stretches over two parallel worlds, with strong visual variety, and 50 dedicated background music tracks.
Rainbow Skies is more than just a sequel. We'll be introducing many new features, including monster taming, an advanced battle system with new combo attacks, new dungeon action elements, a new dialog and emoticon system, new treasure hunt quests, an improved side quest system, explorable buildings, and new mini-games.
