11w ago - Zen Studios Community Manager Bobby Loertscher shared a video today announcing that Super League Football is coming soon to Zen Pinball 2.

To quote: The competition is heating up on PlayStation! We're combining the world's most popular sport with our passion for pinball. Soon you'll be able to choose your favorite football club on our next table: Super League Football Pinball. Coming to Zen Pinball 2.

Wait... football pinball? Yes! Well, actually, you might know it as soccer, but we Americans like to do things a bit different from the rest of the world. You know, like not using the metric system and calling football soccer. Such rebels.

You'll side with your favorite clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool FC, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid C.F., A.C. Milan, Juventus, and A.S. Roma as they square off to dominate league play in a new pinball experience.

The table will be themed in brilliant style, including images of the clubs biggest stars, team mascots, chants, and theme songs - a totally authentic football experience. Scores will tally to each club's global leaderboard, providing an overall rank for each club in the league on a global scale on each platform.





As you lead your team through league...

12w ago - Square Enix Senior Online Community Manager Matt Hilton confirmed today that Final Fantasy XIV PS4 is coming on April 14th alongside revealing the PlayStation 4 Collector's Edition below.

To quote: Since Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, the second MMO in the Final Fantasy series, was released on PC and PS3 , more than 1.5 million accounts have been registered, and filled more than 60 worlds with a living, breathing community.

And since then, PS4 has been released, and millions of you have welcomed the new console into your homes. But admit it - you felt that something was missing, didn't you?

Final Fantasy and PlayStation have been a dream team since the early days, and good friendships never die. So we're happy to announce that Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will begin beta on February 22nd, and then launch on April 14th.

But that's not all. What would Final Fantasy be without a sumptuous Collector's Edition? If you want to know more, read on!

You will defend the realm of Eorzea against a smorgasbord of enemies - no, I'm not even kidding, you should be happy if something doesn't constantly try to snap you in half or just save itself the trouble and swallow you whole to begin with. In a world like this, an adventurer needs any help he can find.

Ludometrics Announces Bodycheck is Coming to PlayStation Vita

13w ago - Ludometrics Founder David Thomson announced today that Bodycheck is coming to PlayStation Vita!

To quote: Hiya. I'm David, the de-facto Chief Person at Ludometrics, based in Glasgow, Scotland. The team here has been around for a long time in various forms, prior to teaming up again at Ludometrics; we originally made games for mobile phones way back last century, if you can imagine that.

Today, though, I'm here to tell you about Bodycheck, a game I've been waiting to make for quite a long time. Sometimes, as it's said, all you need is a little patience.

Bodycheck is a sports game for people who don't necessarily like sports. Personally, I'm a fan of sports. I can sports with the best of them. But I find most sports games of recent years lack a certain something-something. Perhaps they're not physical enough, or they manage not to capture the chaos of play, or sometimes they're just a bit ponderous.

Bodycheck will (hopefully) contain that certain something-something. I love reading about the origins of football in the Middle Ages, with 500 players per team and matches lasting days - and the ball was actually a pig's head.

We won't have that many players per team in the game, and matches will be a tad shorter, but punching, scratching, and general unnecessary roughness...
 

Energy Hook is Coming to PS4 and PlayStation Vita in 2014

50°
14w ago - To quote: Chief Scientist Jamie Fristrom at Happion Laboratories announced today that Energy Hook is coming to both PS4 and PlayStation Vita platforms in 2014.

To quote: Being an independent game developer sure has been a bumpy ride. After making Spider-Man 2, I quit my sweet gig at Activision to see if I could make games my own way, on my own terms.

I've been through a lot since then! I founded a company with a friend. We built it up, had several employees, health insurance, and everything only to see it come crashing down.

So now I'm on my own again, starting over from scratch. But maybe things are turning around? By revisiting the coolest thing I've ever done - swinging game mechanics - and launching an unorthodox Kickstarter for the game, called Energy Hook, my new company Happion Labs seems to be on an upward trajectory.

And the latest piece of good news: I'm going to be able to bring Energy Hook to PS4 and PS Vita!

So, what's Energy Hook? Well, imagine a 3D swinging game like Spider-Man 2 had a love child with "points-for-style" game SSX. You swing from rooftop to rooftop, pull off mid-air tricks, run along walls, and rack up points and energy for doing it. Because: it's the future.

And that's what the extreme sports of the future look like....
