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

14w 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:...

14w ago - Klei Entertainment Community Manager Corey Rollins announced that Don't Starve is out today on PS4 and free for PlayStation Plus members!

Below are the details, to quote: Hey everyone! I'm Corey Rollins from Klei Entertainment, and I'm here to talk about our newest PS4 downloadable game: Don't Starve. It's available today on PlayStation Store for $14.99 and it's free for PlayStation Plus.

If you're new to the game, Don't Starve is an uncompromising wilderness survival game full of science and magic. While there are many unique characters to discover and unlock along the way, you'll start as the gentleman scientist, Wilson.

After being lured with infinite knowledge by a demon named Maxwell, Wilson finds himself trapped in a mysterious and unforgiving world. Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home.

Don't Starve is a game that gives no instruction, and forces players to adapt or die in the process. And oh my, die you will! After every death, a new world is procedurally generated, and you'll find yourself scrambling to gather resources, explore the world, encounter bizarre creatures, and play your own way to unravel the mysteries around you.

One of the biggest features of the console...

Dragon's Crown: New Difficulty and Dungeon Available Today

200°
16w ago - ATLUS PR Manager John Hardin announced today that the Dragon's Crown new difficulty and dungeon are available via PSN today!

To quote: 'Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the house, No DualShock was stirring because you didn't know there was a new Dragon's Crown patch out.

The players are all partying in the tavern with cheer, Because "Holy Crap!" a new difficulty level and dungeon are here!

I'm fairly certain that's how that poem begins, and I refuse to accept any corrections to it.

It's been a while since Dragon's Crown launched, but we haven't stopped working to make it better. We added cross play, improved the game balance, and tweaked many things to make the game even more fun. You would think we were done by now, but today we have a true holiday miracle for you: another brand new feature.

So knock the cobwebs off your Fighters, Elves, Wizards, and the rest, because we're adding in a lot of new content with The Fifth Dragon's Crown Patch.

If you've ever played a Vanillaware game before (Odin Sphere and Muramasa: Rebirth spring to mind), you know the brutal difficulty the games are known for. We got the impression that a lot of people didn't feel Dragon's Crown was hard enough on the way to level 99, so now there's a brand new Ultimate...

16w ago - Sony Product Manager Ken Chan announced today that Gran Turismo 6: Andretti's 1948 Hudson is now available for PS3 fans.

To quote: GT fans! For the last few weeks, many of you visited www.gt6firstlove.com and shared your incredible first love stories, and witnessed the rebuild of Mario Andretti's first race car that started his illustrious career - the 1948 Hudson.

Well, the moment is finally here. The Reunion video captures the magical moment when Mario Andretti sees and drives the rebuilt Hudson for the first time in more than 50 years. Without giving too much away, the video also shows the intricate process that Polyphony Digital goes through to recreate the classic Hudson in GT6.

The process includes data capturing, 3D scanning, and sound recording of the engine at all ranges of the RPM. After this, you'll get to see Mr. Andretti himself relive his first love driving experience in the rebuilt Hudson.





To properly celebrate the collaboration between Mario Andretti and Gran Turismo, a unique Special Event featuring the 1948 Hudson is available in GT6 starting today and running through January 16th, 2014.

The 1948 Hudson Superlap challenge will take...
