115w ago - Team17 Community Manager Mark Baldwin has announced today that Worms Ultimate Mayhem will be obliterating PSN on February 14, 2012.

To quote: We are delighted to be able to announce the U.S. release date of Worms Ultimate Mayhem is Tuesday February 14, 2012. We'd also like to introduce the game to you all and answer any questions you may have.

Can you introduce the game to us please?

Sure, Worms Ultimate Mayhem is a "best of" compilation of content from both Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem, so it's got 38 weapons, plenty of customization options (including a selection of new ones) making for 115 individual customization elements in total.

There are also 60 single-player missions taken from both sources, making it a massive game. We've taken the opportunity to improve on what was there already too. We have made some really nice improvements to the camera and made the game even more approachable; to this end we added a new utility (the Binoculars) to help you aim, and an automatic shot assist mechanic that helps your shots find their targets in easy mode. We have also added some really cool loyalty content too.

In terms of visual improvements, we've brought the game up to date with a raft of enhancements. New water effects, up-scaled textures and fonts, higher...

117w ago - Naughty Dog Co-President Evan Wells has announced today that Jak and Daxter Collection will be hitting PS3 on February 7, 2012 alongside detailing the PS3 Trophies below as follows:

The wait is almost over, Jak and Daxter fans! I'm happy to announce that Jak and Daxter Collection launches in North America on February 7th. In a few short weeks you'll be able to score the first three installments of the Jak and Daxter trilogy in one complete PS3 Blu-ray package for just $39.99.

Each game has been fully remastered to feature 720p HD visuals and stereoscopic 3D functionality, and one of the coolest new additions to the titles in Jak and Daxter Collection is the introduction of Trophy support.

When the series debuted on PS2 over 10 years ago, we didn't have Trophies. For our jump to PS3, Mass Media crafted custom Trophies for you to earn for all three titles in the collection.

The team at Mass Media has created intricate Trophies, each featuring a unique variation on a design theme based around its mission type. There are over 100 to collect including three Platinum Trophies, so you completionists will have hours of Trophy-hunting fun to look forward to.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the Trophies that will be up for grabs:

130w ago - Namco Bandai Games Community Manager Rich Bantegui has announced today that Touch My Katamari will be hitting PS Vita in February 2012.

To quote: The PlayStation Nation now has a final release date for when they can get their mitts on the PS Vita, and February 22nd couldn't come soon enough!

Why am I back today to steal the spotlight on the blog yet again? If you remember back during the Tokyo Game Show, I let all of you know that our team was producing a new Katamari game for the PS Vita, and I got to give you the first scoop on the news.

Well, today NAMCO BANDAI is finally ready to reveal what that Katarmari game will officially be dubbed here in the US of A... and that name is... TOUCH MY KATAMARI!

The very best part of this aside from the giggle-inducing name? TOUCH MY KATAMARI is going to be available on February 22nd, 2012, day and date of the launch of the PS Vita! The King of All Cosmos has commanded it so!

I've been checking out the latest builds of the game since TGS, and the Prince's next adventure is just as nonsensical as ever.

Fans have been dying to have an on-the-go, two-analog stick version of Katamari for ages, and TOUCH MY KATAMARI does it right. In addition to the two sticks, players can also opt to use the front touch screen...
