111w ago - Q-Games Ltd President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert has announced today alongside a video that PixelJunk Sidescroller is coming to PSN on October 25th with details below.
To quote: PixelJunk SideScroller is not far from your hands! Yes, it has kind of crept up upon us, but the release date is 1st of November October 25th in North America.
I really can't emphasize enough how really, really good, old-school fun SideScroller has turned out to be. I'm sure some of you have played the "bonus" stage in PixelJunk Shooter 2 called "The Road to Dawn", well that is what gave us the urge to make an entire side scrolling shoot-em-up game!
Back in the day I used to love games such as R-Type and Darius, and going even further back there were games such as Scramble and Defender that inspired me as a child.
So... we decided to dip our toes in and see what PixelJunk could bring to the side-scroller world.
We used the same engine as for the two Shooter titles, but the game itself is entirely different. To begin with this is a single-stick controlled game rather than the dual-stick control we had in Shooter, which makes it even more addictive and easy...

112w ago - Team17 Software Ltd Head of Design John Dennis has announced that Worms Crazy Golf hits PSN today in Europe and on October 25th in North America.
To quote: With Worms Crazy Golf launching on the U.S. PlayStation Store on Tuesday, October 25th, for $9.99 (PlayStation Plus subscribers will receive a 20% launch discount for the first 2 weeks of release).
We'd like to introduce the game to you all by answering a few key questions:
Q: Can you describe how the intriguing idea of combining Worms and golf came about?
A: We started with the fact Worms is a pretty crazy and surreal game anyway, so we felt it would be ideally suited for combining with 'crazy golf'. Coupled with the fact that both Worms and golf are both turn-based games, it seemed pretty natural to us that the two games could be mixed together into some sort of highly entertaining cocktail!
And with the fun, competitive nature of both Worms and golf gameplay, we thought it would work very well in a social multi-player setting. Fortunately, I think our instincts were proven right!
Q: Can you tell us about the game. How does the world of Worms combine with golf?
A: Anyone expecting a straight golf game will be in...
