6w ago - Matt Makes Games Inc Indie Game Developer Matt Thorson announced that TowerFall Ascension PS4 is out today on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Today's the day! TowerFall Ascension is finally launching on PS4. TowerFall is an archery platformer featuring intense local multiplayer battles and a dynamic solo - or co-op - Quest mode. Grab your friends and pack onto your couch for a night of close calls, surprise victories, and hilarious missteps.

The reviews began rolling in a few days ago, and I'm absolutely floored by the response. I'm not usually one to put a lot of stock in those dubious numbers emblazoned in bold at the bottom of articles, but I can't deny it feels good to see the 9.5′s.





Making TowerFall has been the most rewarding experience of my life. When I put love into the game, I see it returned to me tenfold by the TowerFall community, and it only appears to be growing.

I also had the privilege of working with some incredibly talented, capable, and pleasant people. I want to thank the entire team by name. Kevin Regamey and Jeff Tangsoc (sound design), Pedro Medeiros (pixel art), Amora Bettany (character design and concept art), Alec Holowka (music), and Kert Gartner (trailers).

6w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton shared an InFamous Second Son video today that answers some PS4 questions from PlayStation 4 fans below.

To quote: With the the March 21st launch of inFAMOUS Second Son on PS4 just a few weeks away, we recently reached out to you all via Twitter, Facebook, and regional forums with a call for any questions you might have about the latest entry in Sucker Punch's open-world, superhero series.

Duly, you deluged us with queries, which Brian Fleming - studio co-founder and producer on Second Son - has kindly taken the time to answer. Read on for his responses, and let us know if you have any additional questions in the comments below.





How did you come across the idea for Second Son? (‏@Crodogile)

Brian Fleming: Like a lot of things, it's not a single point. It's actually the reverse - you have a bunch of ideas that eventually coalesce and gel into what becomes Delsin Rowe.

The character himself was an offshoot of the decision to do Seattle. Once we picked Seattle, the idea of taking the roots of the area and having a kid who grew up on one of the Native American reservations here really was the genesis of Second Son.

On the flipside,...
 

Bound by Flame PS4: Crafting Items to Survive on PlayStation 4

6w ago - Spiders Studio Project Manager Walid Miled revealed some PS4 tips today on crafting items to survive in Bound by Flame on the PlayStation 4 video gaming console.

To quote: In Bound by Flame - a gothic RPG for PS4 - the crafting system has an instrumental role. You'll need it to advance in your journey, as it provides useful upgrades to your character, while also having a strong aesthetic aspect.

Throughout your quest, you'll loot various materials and components hidden in chests, or from the corpses of your dead enemies. These are the basic components to craft weapons, armor, traps, ammunition, or potions that you'll need to progress. Don't underestimate the usefulness of crafting in Bound by Flame; some of the best pieces of equipment are crafted!

The visual customization of your hero is also very deep. Some pieces of armor have up to three slots that can be upgraded, with a direct impact on your character's appearance. Crafting will transform your hero into a killing machine, and will make you look like a badass in the process.

Crafting Components

In Bound by Flame, the opportunities to gather materials for crafting are many. Killing monsters, looting chests and coffins, or completing quests are all good means to collect various components.

Next up, we have Scott Hansen (Tycho) and Ben Benjamin here to talk about their work on the game. Both have composed original music for Hohokum and it's AMAZING.

100°
6w ago - Square Enix Community Project Manager Hergen Thaens detailed the 19 classes of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for PS4 fans today.

To quote: Welcome to another update on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn - the biggest one so far. A lot of you have probably played the first beta phase from February 22nd to March 3rd - barely enough time to get your hands on one or two classes in a single city, right? Well then, let's introduce you to the others!

You're free to start in any of the three cities: Gridania, Ul'dah, or Limsa Lominsa. Most of you will want to get used to the game first, so you can play solo and get acquainted with everything.

Up until level 15, you've got tons of local quests and adventures that await you - and from level 15 onwards, the whole world opens up to you as you get access to the airship and the other cities.

If you want to play with your friends, you simply have to choose classes with the same starting cities, and you can group up right away.

Once you've acquired a class, you can change to it at any given time (outside of combat and dungeons) by simply equipping the weapon associated with it. It's that simple!

So, let's get started, shall we?

Gridania, One with the Forest

Gridania lies in the...
