Hands-on: Rage - Dead to the World on PlayStation 3

50°
177w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some hands-on interview details for Rage on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Last week, Jeff and I went hands-on with the PS3 version of [Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links] October-bound first-person shooter.

All told, we experienced more than two hours of post-apocalyptic action, driving, and exploration in a nuke-shattered world of exquisite visual detail and startling violence.

Afterwards, we spoke with id Software President Todd Hollenshead to discuss what made the legendary DOOM developer shift gears to a story-driven, open-world playground – and to learn more about the mysteries lurking in that sprawling wasteland.

Todd Hollenshead, President, id Software: "You have to sort of experience it, it's very difficult to explain. The megatextures allow us to make the entire world unique. It's all painted and modeled and because we're streaming the textures, we're not really constrained by system memory. We can have completely unique elements throughout the world without costing us performance."

Sid Shuman, PlayStation.Blog: Any hands-on discussion of Rage must begin with its stunning visuals. Rage is...
 

Sega Reveals House of the Dead: Overkill Naked Terror on PS3

50°
177w ago - Sega Public Relations Manager David Bruno has revealed details today on House of the Dead: Overkill Naked Terror for the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: I'm pleased to be able to reveal some more exclusive news for you; this time in the form of a new level reveal.

We're proud to announce the details for the first of two exclusive levels from the Extended Cut; Naked Terror.

Naked Terror sees you fighting your way through a strip club (a real hardship I know), the streets of Bayou City and a bar, and not only do you have new environments to battle your way through, you also have new stripper and biker mutants to contend with.

The other cool aspect to this new level is who you play as, for this level G and Wash are elsewhere, leaving you to take control of Varla (previously an NPC in the original Overkill) and her stripper friend Candy.

Candy seems to have the required staples for any standard stripper: she has a heart of gold, is wholesome, innocent, yet can be naïve to the world. There is one big difference though between her and her stripper brethren; our heroine is pretty handy with a hand cannon, and skilfully adept at taking down enemies. Sounds like my kind of woman really.

There are connections between her and Jasper (the boss at the...

Video: Dead Block Hits PlayStation Network on July 19, 2011

179w ago - Candygun Games Managing Director Roger Joswig has announced today that Dead Block hits PlayStation Network on July 19 and has shared a video trailer for the PSN title below.

To quote: I'm writing for our small game development start-up Candygun Games based in Hamburg, Germany.

We've just finished our first original game: Dead Block - A 1950's Horror B-Movies inspired action defense game. I'm very happy to bring Dead Block to PS3 gamers via PSN on July 19th in the U.S!

Dead Block is a zombie game set in America's 1950s during the birth of rock 'n roll music – a music so bad, so evil that it summons the dead from their graves to eat brains!

Luckily, you are protected inside a building and you know how to defend yourself with blockades and traps. The game is a third-person action strategy mix with an old-school B-movie horror theme and cartoon-inspired art direction. Dead Block doesn't take itself too seriously; humor is a big part of the game's presentation.

During gameplay, you'll be trapped inside the building and you can use everything you find in order to build blockades and wicked traps. If zombies break in, players fight the intruders with smart bombs and rock 'n roll music. Single-player and up to four player split-screen is supported.



 

Video: El Shaddai PS3 Interview: From Japan with Love

200°
179w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted up an El Shaddai PS3 video interview today alongside details on the PlayStation 3 title, as follows:

With vibrant colors, buttery-smooth animation, and an uncluttered presentation (no HUD!), El Shaddai is a real head-turner.

The game's premise is as unusual as its visuals are striking. "This is a retelling of the [Register or Login to view links], part of the [Register or Login to view links]," Ignition Entertainment's Shane Bettenhausen told me. "It's not meant to be a complete retelling - we've taken some liberties."

Liberties such as mobile phones, designer jeans, and a driving level which would be at home in a TRON or Final Fantasy title. Despite the biblical angle, I wouldn't consider El Shaddai a religious experience any more than I would Bayonetta a treatise on witchcraft. Instead, the source material offers up an interesting story and guides some of the gameplay elements.

"Enoch, as a character in the bible, is immortal," Bettenhausen told me. "He cannot die. So when you die in this game, you always have the chance to come back to life. If you jam on the four buttons that you use to play the game fast enough, you come back to life....
