The Audio of Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita Detailed

50°
15w ago - Audio Producer Daniel Simmons shared details today on the audio of Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita below.

To quote: We recently added the first batch of sounds to Road Not Taken, and the team got really excited, like the game was finally coming together!

It's funny because it was such a small thing in relation to the huge amount of work that has already gone into the game, but it really highlights the difference sound can make in the way we experience things.

The world of Road Not Taken is made up of magical and natural surroundings. That makes me happy, because even though I love the bleeps and bloops you can get from synthesis, my favorite way to make sounds is from scratch like a foley artist.

It just so happened that I started working on the RNT audio catalog in the fall, right when there were piles of dried leaves everywhere - perfect! I brought a bucket of them inside and rustled them, crunched and dropped them... my studio was a mess!

Also, if you listen closely to the end of the second RNT teaser, you can hear some percussion that was made from dry sticks. At the time I was at a cottage on vacation with my family, so I used a...
 

Video: King Oddball Ends The World Launches on PS Vita Today

15w ago - 10tons PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi shared a fresh video announcing that King Oddball Ends The World launches on PS Vita today.

To quote: Greetings from still miraculously snowless Finland, PlayStation Blog readers! This week 10tons is back with another game to PS Vita, and what a game it is.

I'm quite frankly not sure what to say about King Oddball. Or, King Oddball Ends the World, as the full name goes in all its glory. The game is a bit peculiar, you see. You're probably better off trying the free trial.

While it's technically true that King Oddball falls in the same physics-based puzzle category as Angry Birds, the fruitfulness of the comparison doesn't last long. Sure, you lob objects at things in both games, but that's largely as far as the similarities go.





First of all, King Oddball is a bit weird. What the heck the titular main character even is? What is he a king of? Why is his tongue so absurdly long and stretchy? Why is he in such a foul mood? Your guess is as good as mine. All I know is the eccentric art style and accordion-heavy soundtrack fit the game perfectly.

Gameplay-wise, and this is probably the part everyone is the most interested in, King Oddball is equally uncommon:...
 

PlayStation Plus: Urban Trial Freestyle Free on PS Vita for Members

15w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced that Urban Trial Freestyle is free on PS Vita for Members as part of this weeks PlayStation Plus updates below.

To quote: It's officially 2014, and if you checked out our preview post and video last month you'll know that means mega awesome titles are coming soon! Tomorrow our Plus members will be able to download both Don't Starve on PlayStation 4 and DMC Devil May Cry on PlayStation 3.

Don't Starve is deceptively cute, so don't be fooled, this is a hardcore survival simulator. You (as a Gentleman Scientist) will need to gather, hunt and build in order to stay alive in this mysterious land.

DmC Devil May Cry refreshes the story of Dante and gives him a bit of a makeover, but the combat is still as action-packed as you'd expect from a DMC title. Dante still packs his pistols Ebony & Ivory as well as his blade Rebellion, and you'll have to switch back and forth from Angel and Demon mode in order to rack up your massive combos.

You can download Don't Starve and DmC Devil May Cry as well as take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 1/7.

To quote: Happy holidays, everyone! Furmins - an innovative physics puzzle game - is out today on PS Vita.

In Furmins, players guide a bunch of adorable creatures across cunningly designed levels by rearranging a variety of items, as well as using bumpers and conveyor belts in real-time with coordinated precision.

The quest at hand: to travel across the length of their world to wake up their King, who has fallen asleep and rolled over a river to form an impromptu dam that threatens their very existence! Strategically placed items create pathways and physical chain reactions, which guide the furmins to the basket - and level completion.

The PS Vita version offers exclusive features such as a brand new scoring system, global and per-world scoreboards with filters (overall, friends, your score), and the possibility to play with both the touch screen and rear touch pad.





Features

• A complete version of the game containing 108 levels across 9 game worlds (the 9th world coming as DLC)
• Unique blend of physics-based, set-up-and-go play with real-time interaction
