To quote: I created a PKG with all software needed and ready configured mounts to install any DOS-Game from USB without having to create a PKG for each one. I call it DosMount

The purpose is to make it as easy as possible to install any game as if you were on your PC (or even easier)

159w ago - Today RSBLSB (Right Square Bracket Left Square Bracket) Creator Shawn McGrath has introduced their first PS3 game called Dyad for PSN alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: I am very excited to be introducing [Register or Login to view links]'s first PlayStation Network game: [Register or Login to view links].

Dyad is an abstract racing game that has influences in many genres including racing games, fighting games, puzzle games and classic arcade shooters.

Dyad does away with the traditional racing game mechanics of break and accelerate and replaces them with puzzle-like mechanics. You must interact with your enemies in unique and varying ways in order to gain speed.

I've always loved the visceral feel racing games provided, especially the WipeOut series, and I wanted to translate that feeling into a puzzle game. In most racing games, each track has an ideal 'racing line' which players must memorize and translate into muscle memory in order to be successful - I remember months of repeating tracks in WipeOut XL for the PSX!





With Dyad I replaced the mental process of memorizing a racing line with various combo mechanics. Dyad begins with very basic comboing rules centred around...

160w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer Scognito has released what he calls Scogger HD, a PS3 homebrew version of the popular Frogger video game.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

From his site: New graphics for my latest console: PlayStation 3! Rules of the game are the same as other ports: frog can jump forward, left, right (not backward) and the goal is to jump over all the leaf of the level.

There are 10 levels, out of 100 random ones

Controls:

• Move the frog with arrow keys
• Restart level with Circle button

Scogger 0.1 for PS3 Changelog:

• First and last version
• New fantastic graphics in HD thanks to SpriteAttack!

Thanks to SDL library I ported the original game on PC in a breeze, then I started changing every single image, add some sort of animation and writing some sort of animation code, tweaking with frames, rewrite menu code, polishing the trash code... so I did 90% of the work PC side. Porting it over on PS3 was (almost) straightforward.
