Video: Dyad for PlayStation Network: Music and Gameplay Fusion

50°
155w ago - Dyad Creator Shawn McGrath has shared some video footage spotlighting the music and gameplay fusion in Dyad for PlayStation Network today.

To quote: Shawn here again, and I brought along [Register or Login to view links]'s composer, David Kanaga.

We're going to talk a bit about Dyad's interactive music system, how it works and what makes it unique. We're also treating you to a free three-song EP consisting of linear mixes of Dyad's interactive music and some new screenshots!

Below is a new gameplay video showcasing one of the later levels in Dyad. Don't worry if it looks too complex! It'll make perfect sense once you've completed the earlier levels.

When you hear the term "interactive music" you might think of "rhythm games" such as Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Frequency, or others of that nature. Dyad's music system is very different from those games. There's no beat matching or imposed rhythm in the game.





The music doesn't dictate play, nor does it judge you. Dyad's music is reactive, meaning it's mixed dynamically on the fly, based on the current game state and how you're interacting with it. Each time you play a level, the music is different – playing Dyad can...

200°
155w ago - SCEE's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team has shared the new European PlayStation Game Store updates today, as follows:

Hi everyone, it's Store update day and the second title in the PlayStation Network PLAY series is released today - The Baconing - the third instalment in the saga of Deathspank, defender of the downtrodden and thong enthusiast.

You are DeathSpank, a hero and the ultimate Dispenser of Justice. You must defeat the Anti-Spank and his army of Cyborques, before they cast an evil shadow over Spanktopia. Discover exciting new worlds and battle hordes of enemies as you search to unlock the secret within the Fires of Bacon.

Your free gift with this title is an extra character, Roesha, who will be available to download from next week's publish - you can grab it from the PLAY Offer section on the Store, where you'll also be able to pick up your pre-orders.

Also new this week, we have Elevator Action Deluxe from Square Enix, a retro-reboot of the classic spy, document collecting arcade game from days of yore. Well, 1983 was not quite the days of yore but it was a long time ago in videogames! The original arcade game is included in this release so you can see what all the fuss was about.

We also have the PSN version of 4 Elements HD,...

155w ago - PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks US PSN updates today, as follows:

The second week of PlayStation Network PLAY is upon us with the release of The Baconing! This comical action RPG continues the story of Deathspank, this time with a sci-fi twist.

As part of PSN PLAY, if you purchase The Baconing before 9/19/2011, you'll receive a free DLC co-op character in the form of Roesha - One Bad Mutha. If you're on the fence, download The Baconing demo which is also in today's Store update.

The following week's PSN PLAY titles are still available for pre-ordering on the Store including [Register or Login to view links] and Renegade Ops.

For fighting game fans, you'll want to check out the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection. Experience the original trilogy in an entirely new light featuring online play, leaderboards, and trophies. While the visuals have come a long way, the gameplay in these classics (klassics?) is still razor sharp and fun as ever.

PlayStation Plus subscribers also get access to some amazing content this week including first dibs on the God of War: Origins Collection demo. The demo hits all of PSN next week, but Plus subscribers will be some of the first to see how Kratos' PSP adventures have made...
 

House Of The Dead: Overkill PS3 Extended Cut - Creeping Flesh

300°
155w ago - Sega Digital Campaigns Manager Mike Kebby has posted up some new screens and details on their upcoming PS3 title House Of The Dead: Overkill Extended Cut featuring creeping flesh and more below!

To quote: Not content with simply revealing the first exclusive level for the PS3 release of [Register or Login to view links], I'm back to give you the scoop on the second one too.

Set in the cosy confines of an abattoir taken over by a meaty disease of sorts, Creeping Flesh delivers you more of the additional awesome content we've lovingly added to the extended, and definitive, edition of OVERKILL.

We pick up the story with Varla and Candy again, and this time circumstances lead them to the local abattoir. I'm not going to spoil any of the story and the detail around what leads them there, but let's just say it's the standard House of the Dead fare; there are guns, motives for revenge and mutants galore, all wrapped up with the usual Grindhouse styling.

As you can see from the above image, there is something of a meaty infestation starting to take hold inside the building, and internally we've affectionately referred to this as the meat wall (there is also a meat tunnel later in the level,...
 

Don't Get Crushed v1.1 PS3 Homebrew Game Update is Released

100°
155w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer ThatOtherDev has updated his initial release of the PS3 homebrew game Don't Get Crushed to version 1.1 for CFW users.

To quote: Here is an update to something I made for PS3 ages ago. It was originally made with the official SDK but it has now been remade with PSL1GHT and will work perfectly fine on CFW (is it still not possible to run the old stuff from the days of Jailbreak devices unmodified on CFW without getting an 80010009 error?).

There have been a handful of changes. Everything speeds up slightly as your score increases. The game pauses when the XMB is brought up. The text is larger and has a different font. There are a lot of other alterations but it is all minor stuff.

The one very noticeable change is that it has returned to being played with the analog sticks (you can use either one) instead of being sixaxis motion controlled. I wasn't able to get the motion controls working (I have been having bad luck with controls lately lol). I would greatly appreciate it if anyone want's to point me in the direction of an...
