88w ago - Fun Bits Interactive Team Lead Chris Millar has announced today that news of a free prequel PS3 DLC dubbed Bakuki's Lair with Patch 1.01 for Escape Plan.
To quote: On April 10th, Escape Plan owners will receive Bakuki's Lair, the first DLC Pack for Escape Plan, via download of Patch 1.01. This free DLC Pack adds 19 prequel puzzle rooms to the adventures of Lil and Laarg.
Our hapless heroes' journey begins anew with Lil and Laarg trapped in a hazardous sausage factory, where they will become bratwurst if they don't bail. You'll need to swipe for your life through a handful of dastardly designed puzzles in this latest update.
Lil is doomed... unless Laarg can figure out how this machine works
Bakuki's Lair is just one of the benefits of the upcoming patch. Escape Plan Patch 1.01 is a meaty new addition, with a host of tweaks and improvements based on player feedback.
Patch 1.01 allows for more pin-point accuracy on tap blocks, as well as an adjustment to the game's star rating system. We are also laying the foundation for a lot of exciting updates for Lil and Laarg in the future.
Laarg is definitely not in a safe spot

Ruin (working title) was last seen on the E3 2011 PlayStation stage, when the presenter wirelessly transferred his PS Vita game session to a PS3 without missing a frame of the action.
As technically impressive as Ruin's cross-platform compatibility is, I've learned that it's only the beginning of what co-developers Idol Minds and SCE San Diego Studios are planning for this ambitious multiplayer action-RPG.
Ruin is still early in development, but it's being eagerly anticipated for its PS Vita-to-PS3 cross-compatibility, addictive action-RPG gameplay, and expansive social features.
Ruin's developers are quietly building a wide, deep social network designed to keep you interacting whether you're on the couch, on the bus, or someplace in-between. Travis Williams, Ruin's energetic senior producer, walked me through the game's social ambitions several weeks ago at a media showing in New York City.
From the earliest days of Ruin's development process, Williams told me, the development team was motivated to find a way to make its multiplayer competitive mode accessible and socially sticky – important considerations...

123w ago - Today Dancing Pixel Studios have released a PS3 SixAxis Controller v0.1 application for Android users that allows the SixAxis and DualShock 3 PlayStation 3 controllers to be used as Bluetooth input devices on many mobile phones and tablets alongside a video of it in action below.
To quote: Up to four controllers are supported at once, and key mappings are completely configurable, as well as the analog sticks, which are currently emulated as digital key presses.
Important - Due to the non-standard protocol that the controllers use to communicate with the host, this application requires root access. Additionally, it is incompatible with most HTC devices and some newer Samsung devices. This is due to the required bluetooth protocol not being implemented on these devices. We are actively...
