Epic Mickey 2: Behind the Mouse Ears with Warren Spector

50°
106w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton is here with details on Epic Mickey 2: Behind the Mouse Ears with Warren Spector.

To quote: As gaming resumes go, few can compare to that of Warren Spector. After starting his career on the fabled Wing Commander series back in 1990, he went on to work on massive franchises such as Ultima and System Shock, before re-inventing the stealth genre with Deus Ex and Thief. In short, he's a true giant of game development.

And this week sees him return to the fray, with Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two - an ambitious sequel to his epic 2010 platforming adventure, packing in full co-op play and PlayStation Move support.

The [Register or Login to view links] founder was kind enough to lend PlayStation.Blog a few minutes of his valuable time to discuss the game - read on to find out what he had to say.

PlayStation.Blog: There are a lot of PlayStation gamers out there who might not be too familiar with the first game. What did they miss?

Warren Spector: What did they miss? Only the greatest game experience of all time! No, okay, seriously... what they missed was the reintroduction of Mickey Mouse as a game hero the equal of Mario, Sonic, Link or any other platforming or adventure star.

They missed...
 

Video: The Ratchet & Clank Never Seen: 10 Years of Concept Art

50°
118w ago - Insomniac Games Chief Operating Officer John Fiorito has unveiled some rare concept art today spanning over the last 10 years from Ratchet & Clank for die-hard fans.

To quote: The Ratchet & Clank franchise turns 10 this year, and to celebrate their anniversary we will release the Ratchet & Clank Collection on PS3.

Ever since the first Ratchet & Clank game launched, fans have written us wanting to see concept art. While concepts are just one of many pieces we use to put our games together, they are a fun way to show the history of the Ratchet & Clank universe.

So I searched around the studio and pulled together a collection of images that go all the way back to 2002 when Insomniac started working on a new game...

In The Beginning... well actually it was 2000. We were wrapping up Spyro: Year of the Dragon and looking ahead to the PlayStation 2. After spending a year developing a new game code-named "I5" and later known as "Girl with a Stick," we canceled the project and decided to shift gears.

(To find out more about Girl with a Stick and its ultimate demise, check out the [Register or Login to view links]). That left us with only a few months to present a new idea and we started working on...

Video: Gatling Gears is Now Available on PlayStation Network

50°
178w ago - Vanguard Games Game Designer Nikki Kuppens has announced that Gatling Gears is now available on PlayStation Network and shared a video trailer for the PSN title.

To quote: I'm here to introduce our newest game, Gatling Gears, which is available on PSN right now! Gatling Gears is an intense twin-stick shooter in which you control a heavily armed mech.

We call them "walkers" and they're a very iconic part of Mistbound, the world you will travel through in Gatling Gears. As veteran walker pilot Max Brawley, you're going to have to put an end to the Empire's destructive campaign for Mistbound's valuable resources.

To do that, you will have to master the two basic principles of walker operation: shooting and dodging. You'll be flooded with waves and waves of enemies, so using your weapons effectively is key to your survival.

The Gatling gun is useful against weaker enemies, but has a limited range. A cannon shell does more damage, but is harder to aim. Grenades can be carefully targeted and do a lot of damage, but will take a while to reach their target. If things get out of hand (and they will!) detonating your Spark Bomb will send an electrified shock wave across the entire screen.

213w ago - Today President & CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America Jack Tretton has shared a video as part of celebrating ten years of the Playstation 2 with a look back.

To quote: It has been a busy few months here at PlayStation headquarters. We've just recently celebrated 15 incredible years as a leading innovator in the consumer entertainment space, launched a groundbreaking new product called the PlayStation Move, and we're closing in on a truly remarkable year for PS3.

While we can probably spend a whole blog post talking about all unbelievable excitement and momentum around PS3, I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge a tremendous milestone today - PS2 hits its 10th anniversary.

There is no better testament of our longevity as a brand and our true leadership in bringing forward technology to the masses, than what we've accomplished with the PS2. The PS2 continues to be a defining moment in our legacy and we're so thankful to you, our most passionate and loyal fans who've been with us since its inception.





When the platform launched back in October 2000, the industry was forever changed by the introduction of a device that came built in with a DVD/CD player and offered Internet connectivity and online...
