To quote: Ever since we released Comet Crash for PS3 on PSN, we've been receiving a stream of emails from fans requesting new features. We're excited to satisfy a bunch of these requests in a content patch that's available right now.
The update introduces new levels, new maps, new battle settings and a new difficulty mode. The fresh additions showcase the best of what Comet Crash has to offer, while making sure fans have plenty to keep them warm during the holidays.
Check out this gameplay footage of the Kreios Resurgence:
The 1.03 update adds the following features:
• 'Expert' difficulty setting for seasoned Comet Crash players. You'll see a surge in enemy attacks that will put your skills to the test.
• 4 new Resurgence levels-one unlocked at the end of each comet during the Campaign. Resurgence levels may require completely new strategies. Beware... no hints!
• 4 new Battle maps to mix up your games a bit.
• Battle timer setting. After the timer runs out, all mobile units generate at 8x the normal rate which should bring games to an exciting finish!...
215w ago - Electronic Arts Product Marketing Manager Brent Dady has announced today that Brütal Legend's Tears of the Hextadon DLC is launching for free on PSN.
To quote: Now that Rocktober of the year of our metal Lords 2009 is coming to a close, we at Double Fine Productions and Electronic Arts are taking the time to reflect back upon a pretty eventful year.
Here are just a select few of the very many Brütal Legend highlights that have lodged into my memory banks:
1. Jack Black, Tim Schafer, and Rob Halford unveiling Brütal's gameplay for the first time to the coalition of the willing PS3 gamers at the Spike VGAs.
2. E3 - staying up until 9am the day of the show loading builds (I may have never recovered from this all year), live Twitter chats, a banner 1/3 the size of a football field, debuting our talent trailer, the coalition of the unwilling finds its leader. Pandemonium!
3. Comic-con - the infamous Brütal Legend concert featuring 3 Inches of Blood and GWAR.
4. Wherein Tim Schafer tries to solve a Rubik's Cube in the time that it takes Emily Ridgway, Double Fine's audio director, to recite the bands and titles of the 108 songs off of the (I would say EPIC) Brütal soundtrack.
220w ago - Today Pelfast President John Bates has shared a Comet Crash defense gameplay video, and he announced that a Comet Crash free update will be coming soon to PSN for the PlayStation 3.
To quote: This is John Bates and Jennifer Pourchot from Pelfast. Pelfast is a small indie startup located in sunny California.
Our highly acclaimed debut title, Comet Crash for PS3 has turned the tower defense genre on its head with completely new and exciting gameplay. We've been busy again with a free update that will add a few new features described at the end of the post. For those unfamiliar with Comet Crash, here's a quick run down.
Tower defense fans appreciate the simple yet addictive experience of building towers to defend from enemy waves. On the other hand, we at Pelfast love the thrill of a massive offensive rush to demolish an enemy base. We designed Comet Crash with both of these elements in mind. Finally, you can send massive swarms of your own troops to wreak havoc on the relentless waves of enemies. Ahhh... sweet revenge!
In Comet Crash, your first priority is to defend your territory from an assortment of enemy invaders. For those of you new to tower defense gameplay, this involves strategically placing various weapon towers...
254w ago - RedOctane/Activision Producer Chuck Park announced some good news for Guitar Hero World Tour players as follows today:
This coming Tuesday, January 27 (yes, you read that correctly, Tuesday), we're all VERY proud to welcome Bruce Springsteen to the Guitar Hero World Tour family, as you'll be able to download the Bruce Springsteen Track Pack for FREE from the PlayStation Store.
The Track Pack has two great songs, the classic anthem "Born to Run" (if you don't know, go ask Dad about it and watch him reminisce about his younger days as he begins to sing at the top of his lungs) and Bruce's new single "My Lucky Day". We're giving this to you on a Tuesday, as it coincides with the release of Bruce's new album "Working On A Dream".
Bruce has been pretty busy lately, as he won a Golden Globe, performed at the Inaugural Celebration, is releasing a new album AND will perform at halftime of the Big Game in Tampa on February 1. So do yourself a favor and add these songs to your ever-growing Guitar Hero World Tour set lists! We hope you enjoy playing these songs as much as we enjoyed delivering them to you.
One last note about the Track Pack. It's FREE for a limited time only. You have from Tuesday, January 27 - Wednesday, February 4 to download it for...
261w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi made the following announcement via PS Blog today:
We have good news for you this month. As our way of saying "Happy Holidays," the PlayStation Network is offering the Single Episode version of Qore Episode 07 (December '08) for FREE* in the PlayStation Store. So, this month is your chance to check out an entire episode of Qore starting this Thursday, December 4th.
Episode 07 begins with an inside look at EA's "Skate 2," the sequel to the game that redefined what it means to ride a virtual board. Then, Audrey Cleo rolls over to Skatefest '08 in San Diego for a spin around the boarding scene.
Next, Veronica Belmont makes her way to Capcom to check out two of their latest projects - "Bionic Commando," the re-imagining of the classic 8-bit franchise, and "Flock," a really cool PlayStation Network game that definitely does not follow the herd.
We also introduce you to the "Steam Punk" sub-culture as we take a look at Codemasters' "Damnation" - a post-modern third person-shooter served with a Jules Verne twist.
Of course, it wouldn't be Qore if we didn't have a few downloadable and playable goodies for you in the form of an exclusive...
