60w ago - Cyanide Producer Sylvain Sechi has shared a video trailer today announcing that the PS3 action RPG Of Orcs and Men is hitting PSN this Tuesday.
To quote: Hi PlayStation players, this is Sylvain from Cyanide. I'm here to give you an introduction to the world of Greenskins and humans.
Of Orcs and Men is an action RPG, taking place in a dark and mature universe where Greenskins (orcs and goblins) have finally been defeated after a long war against the human kingdom.
The emperor has decided that, in order to prevent any further war against the Greenskins, it's best to just commit full-on genocide - unfortunately for you, you'll be controlling an orc and a goblin.
As the game starts, Arkail (the massive orc) and Styx (the stealthy goblin) are among the last of their race still alive. They are sent on a suicide mission - to reach the land of the humans and assassinate the Emperor, thus stopping the massacre and enslavement of greenskins.
Originally, while playing with the prototype, we enjoyed controlling Styx and Arkail individually, but even more, we liked the combinations they could have. We kept improving features to make them as unique as possible, but we also worked on tandem attacks for use in combat (like throwing...
60w ago - Smart As Assistant Producer Nicolo Accordino has posted up two new videos today showcasing Smart As, which hits PS Vita on October 30th, 2012.
To quote: We're launching PS Vita's all-new social brain training game, Smart As, on October 30th in North America.
We've been hard at work loading Smart As with fun and engaging puzzle games to put your mental might to the test with challenges in four key areas: Logic, Arithmetic, Language and Observation.
As we recently announced, Smart As also features the voice talent of Monty Python's John Cleese; so as you train, you'll receive his encouragement and cheeky commentary. Better still, as you play and improve your scores, you'll get to share your stats with Smart As fans from around the world via the online leaderboards, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.
Here's a sneak peek at the some of our favorite Logic and Arithmetic challenges.
As you can see in this video, the Logic games are designed to test your ability to solve puzzles as quickly as possible. Inspired by the popular scientific opinion that the brain's frontal lobe is used for executive functions like problem solving, organizing and planning, our goal was to design games that tested...

61w ago - Today Behaviour Creative Director Ashley Pannell has announced that Naughty Bear Panic in Paradise will be hitting PSN on October 9, 2012.
Below are the details, to quote: October is an exciting time, the leaves are falling, Halloween is coming... and 505 games is bringing Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise to PS3! It seems an appropriate season to launch its stuffing-filled blend of stealth and machete-wielding fun to PSN.
The plot is simple - when all the other bears go on holiday to the fabled Paradise Island resort, they forget to invite Naughty Bear. This is a decision they seriously regret after he finds out about their plans and sets out to get his revenge.
Naughty Bear Panic in Paradise has been built using a fully revamped version of our internal engine. A new lighting and shadow system brings a new mood and feel to the world, and allows for a dramatically increased number of bears on screen. It has also allowed us to create much larger levels and, despite all these improvements, run at a smooth framerate.
Combat is fun, furious and downright naughty, featuring a new combo system that allows you to chain different attacks. There are five weapon classes: Fist weapons, Pointy, Slash, Bash, and Smash, all with their own attack animations.
62w ago - Different Tuna's Head of Fresh Produce Gordon Midwood has shared a video today of the new PSN exclusive Derrick the Deathfin which will be swimming onto PS3 on October 9th, 2012.
Below is the video, and to quote: At Different Tuna, we've been working astonishingly hard to bring you PSN's premier underwater papercraft action game - Derrick the Deathfin.
We have 32 handcrafted levels and three level types, set across four challenging continents, with each level being increasingly fiendish and colourful in its design. On October 9th this world can be yours to explore, for $7.99.
You know that feeling when you're sitting on a roller coaster, slowly ascending, just in sight of the summit? That's what you're feeling right now. This time though, the ride is going to be much wilder than anything you've experienced before, and everything on the way down is going to be made out of paper.
To succeed you must fight, jump, race and eat your way through a myriad of confusingly textured circumstances. Good luck!
While you're waiting for Derrick to swim onto your PS3, you can busy yourself by making your own papercraft puffer fish! Or Pufferius Boxius - his official Latin name.
