86w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared some video interview footage today spotlighting Tearaway by Media Molecule below.

To quote: One of the big highlights of Gamescom last week was Media Molecule's return to the spotlight with Vita adventure Tearaway - the UK studio's first title since LittleBigPlanet 2.

Predictably, it's a riot of colour, creativity and wild invention, telling the story of iota - a plucky young hero on a mission to deliver a unique message to you, the player.

You'll help him on his way by interacting with his environment via the Vita's touch screen and rear touch panel. It looks like an absolute delight to play, leveraging all the Vita's features to offer up a unique, exciting gameplay experience.

The morning after they revealed the game on stage during the Sony press conference, Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans and "design lead/chief doodler" Rex Crowle kindly sat down with me for a quick chat about the ideas driving the game, as well as a few words on the LittleBigPlanet series.

Take a look at the video below, and then, for good measure, treat yourself to one...

87w ago - Sony Community Coordinator Steven Isbell has made available some fresh videos from Gamescom 2012 today recapping the LittleBigPlanet Karting PS3 and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita news below.

To quote: Gamescom 2012 is currently in progress and LittleBigPlanet is the height of popularity there, thanks to our brand new titles LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and LittleBigPlanet Karting.

To celebrate the occasion, we have a few treats for you!
LittleBigPlanet DLC Costume Cross-Compatibility!

Customization is a BIG part of LittleBigPlanet. Being able to modify your Sackboy or Sackgirl is a way for players to personalize their experience, while also bringing a variety of different franchises and entertainment properties into the LBP universe.

We recognize this and have decided that we can't ask all you LittleBigPlaneteers to fully enjoy the upcoming LittleBigPlanet PS Vita and LittleBigPlanet Karting without an amazing assortment of costumes at your disposal.

So, we're going to let you bring the costumes that you bought for LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2 along with you... at no extra cost!

Not only that, but for any new costumes that take your fancy, you will only ever need to purchase the costume once and you'll have access to it across LittleBigPlanet...
 

Videos: Assassin's Creed III: Naval Battles, AC3 Liberation Trailer

87w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has posted up some fresh Gamescom 2012 video trailers today showcasing Naval Battles and AC3 Liberation in Assassin's Creed III for the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: To celebrate Gamescom in Cologne, Germany this week, we're giving fans an in-depth look at the breathtaking naval combat in Assassin's Creed III! Submerge yourself in our latest trailer below.

Let's get in to what you just saw in that trailer, because there are a ton of little gameplay nuggets hidden inside it.

First off, check out the attention to detail on the crew and their activities on the deck of Connor's ship, the Aquila... we really wanted to convey the buzzing hive of energy that a ship this size requires just to keep it moving, let alone enter combat.

And when the weather gets rough, Connor may need to put his deft Assassin acrobatics to use, climbing around the rigging and ensuring the sails are properly maintained and operational.

Enemy ships aren't the only threat you'll face along the Eastern shores of North America. Fortunately, you'll have deck guns capable of rotating to remove stationary threats like mines, or even some of the smaller ships that threaten the Aquila.

87w ago - SuperBot Entertainment Community Manager Daniel Maniago has officially revealed several new PlayStation All-Stars PS3 videos today at Gamescom 2012 including Dante, Sackboy, Spike, and Ratchet and Clank below!

To quote: Gamescom is finally upon us, and you know what that means: time for some highly anticipated Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale reveals!

We're thrilled to announce the inclusion of Insomniac's Ratchet and Clank in PlayStation All-Stars! Given the wealth of tools and gadgets at their disposal, it made perfect sense to us to include them in our roster.

This duo is strongest at mid-range, and they can cut off many points of entry with varied angles of attack.

We made sure that iconic Ratchet and Clank weapons such as the Combusto Pistol, the R.Y.N.O., and Tesla Spikes are available for players to utilize on the battlefield.

Clank joins in on the fight wielding his powerful Chronoscepter, and even Mr. Zurkon can be summoned to lend a hand!





Also joining the cast is Spike from Sony Computer Entertainment's franchise Ape Escape – a character that was on our radar from early on.
 

Videos: PlayStation All-Stars: Sly Cooper & Fat Princess Strategies

50°
88w ago - Senior Combat Designer Edward Ma at Superbot Entertainment has shared some new PlayStation All-Stars strategy videos today spotlighting Sly Cooper and Fat Princess below.

To quote: We're back this week to share our next two character combat videos for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

Today, we're examining strategies for Fat Princess and Sly Cooper with Game Director Omar Kendall.

Fat Princess

Fat Princess, much like Sweet Tooth, is a character who has never found herself participating directly in battle, so one of the challenges for us was to design her play style from the ground up.

Her design has gone through radical changes 0 at one point, we had plans for her to grow larger depending on the amount of cake she ate mid-battle. We made sure to follow character guidelines provided by the producer, one of which is the fact that Fat Princess isn't actually aware of her weight.

We incorporated this into her play style by giving her these graceful ballerina pirouette attacks.

Her loyal villagers are, of course, a key weapon in her arsenal. There were a lot of questions raised from the start: should we let her villagers do the fighting while Fat Princess hangs out in the back?
