131w ago - Today Auditorium Senior Producer Alvin Muolic has shared a video announcing that Auditorium is streaming to PSN on November 23, 2010.
To quote: Along with the community we'd been building up, I'm playing and reviewing many of the entries for our first ever indiePub Games Independent Developer Contest.
There's plenty of variety and creativity on display here, but there's one game that sticks out to me the most.
Its minimalistic visuals and haunting audio drew my attention at first, but it was the unique gameplay that kept me in. That game was Auditorium.
Conceptually, you are transforming light into a symphony of sound. If you've played it before, you know what I mean. If you haven't experienced Auditorium yet, you'll have that "a-ha!" moment after a level or two. And then you're hooked.
Turns out I wasn't the only one who felt the same, and soon enough, Auditorium was voted and crowned the winner of the competition.
Following their victory, we at Zoo Publishing and indiePub partnered together with the folks at Cipher Prime to bring Auditorium...
131w ago - SCEE European Product Manager Cristina Giuliano has confirmed today that the Zombie Apocalypse known as Dead Nation for PlayStation 3 is hitting PSN in Europe on December 1, and a day earlier on November 30, 2010 in North America.
To quote: Calling all zombie killers from across Europe: over the last few month we have been talking quite a lot about Dead Nation, the third-person shooter coming to PlayStation Network, revealing the game's innards trailer by trailer and limb by necrotic limb.
Lots of you have been asking when this game is coming out and I am very happy to finally give you a release date.
Get ready: the zombie apocalypse is happening in Europe on the 1st December, only on PlayStation Network.
The price will be €12.99 / £9.99.
In case you've had your head in a corpse and don't know what Dead Nation is, see all of the posts we have had on the game here.
131w ago - London Studios SingStar Content Manager Nina Scherer has posted up this weeks SingStore PS3 releases today, as follows:
Exciting times this week as the first downloadable dance add-ons will be available in the SingStore and that's not all.
In addition, we're giving you dance and guitar gameplay which you'll be able to grab for free from the Extras section. Don't say we're not good to you!
Note that to get these extras, you will have to have the recent 5.10 update installed.
So apart from twelve dance - I'm expecting amazing videos in MSO, btw - and two guitar add-ons there are also great new tracks from Cheryl Cole, Ellie Goulding, Alexandra Burke, David Bowie, Morrissey and Mudhoney on offer. As always, full tracklisting is below.
You'll notice that the list below is now colour coded (songs only). Anything in green means the track is exclusive to the SingStore and has never been featured on a disc before. Some of you requested that I add this information so hope this helps?
That's me for this week. Now DANCE! Feel free to let me know what you think of the dances and what's your favourite(s).
