24 Caret Games on Retro / Grade: How to Play a Reverse Shooter

100°
123w ago - 24 Caret Games Co-founder Matt Gilgenbach has outlined today how to play a reverse shooter as part of some new Retro / Grade tips below.

To quote: We recently announced that Retro/Grade, the first game played entirely in reverse, would be releasing exclusively on PSN on August 21st.

Understanding and developing a game that is played in reverse is tough, so I want talk about how it all works.

Firstly, how did we design a game played in reverse? We worked backwards of course! We started with the idea that it'd be cool to play a game where time is flowing backwards, but we didn't have any ideas on how to pull that off. We did a lot of brainstorming - time reversing is a hard concept to wrap your head around.

We figured for gameplay purposes, undoing your actions would be the best fit for that theme. When undoing, you have to match both the timing and the position of previous actions.

When matching timing, music is the best way to achieve that, so we thought rhythm gameplay would be the best mechanic to build the game around. We figured a 2D game where your motion is constrained to a few discrete lanes would make it easier to match the positions.

A 2D spaceship shooter seemed like a great fit for the theme, so we tried to incorporate elements from...

The Expendables 2: The Videogame Arrives on PSN Play Today

50°
124w ago - Ubisoft Producer Adam Sarasohn has confirmed for fans that The Expendables 2: The Videogame will be blowing the top off PSN Play beginning today.

To quote: The Expendables 2: The Videogame will be kicking off the PSN PLAY program today, giving PlayStation gamers the first chance to play this explosive shooter.

Following the critically acclaimed action movie series by Lionsgate and Millennium Films, The Expendables 2: The Videogame put gamers in control of four of the world's top mercenaries - Barney Ross, Hale Caesar, Gunner Jensen and Yin Yang - as they embark on a rescue mission for a kidnapped billionaire.

Each mercenary will have a distinct play style giving you the choice to tackle enemies up-close or from afar. Here's a quick breakdown of each of the characters weapons and abilities:

Barney Ross: As the leader of the Expendables, Barney is a solid all-around character with no particular weaknesses. His dual pistols or Colt revolver make short work of weaker enemies, while a well-timed grenade toss can take out turrets, tanks, and whatever else the game throws your way. And if someone gets a little too close, Barney's brass knuckles will send them flying back where they came from.

Hale Caesar: Hale is your explosives expert. His weapons are...
