162w ago - Today Alexander Bravve at Nordcurrent has shared a video introduction of Jewel Keepers: Easter Island for Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: We are releasing Jewel Keepers: Easter Island, our latest minis title, very soon, and I wanted to tell you a few things about it.
As you might have guessed from the title, Jewel Keepers: Easter Island is a Match-3 game set on the Easter Island. As in all Match-3 games, you are required to swap adjacent jewels to put three jewels of the same colour next to each other in one row or column.
However, we have added a few gameplay elements that make Jewel Keepers different. You can have a look at the trailer to see the differences:
When you start a new level, all cells are grey. When jewels disappear, they turn grey cells into golden cells, and the goal of the game is to turn all cells into golden ones. This sounds pretty straight-forward when you think of an ordinary rectangular level.
However, as you progress further, you will be faced with more sophisticated level shapes, and it will get more and more challenging. And satisfying, once you complete the level.
And a few words about bonuses: we wanted to make bonuses a bit different from other games. We have time...
Here's a stat for you, the AL East has sent a team to the World Series in nine out of the past 12 seasons, pretty ridiculous! It's no surprise that the Yanks are the obvious favorite.
With all of their A-listers back along with the additions of Curtis Granderson and Nick Johnson, the defending champs will once again be the team to beat.
The Red Sox have finished in second place 10 out of the last 12 seasons, but are hoping to change that in '10. With newcomers like Adrian Beltre added to their core group of All-Stars, they're looking for their third title in 7 years.
The Phillies might be the best team in the NL, if not all of baseball, and are the clear front runner.
The fact that they added an all-world pitcher in Roy Halladay to a World Series squad will make it tough for them not to grab their fourth straight divisional crown. The Marlins always seem to have a good core of young players and with guys like Dan Uggla and Hanley Ramirez, this year is no different so expect them to contend.
The Braves have the clear cut Rookie of the Year in Jason Heyward, but we'll see if this mix of young talent and their usual veterans...
194w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has shared some pictures and details from PAX East 2010: The Naughty Dog LIVE PS3 game design panel today.
To quote: We've all returned - and mostly recuperated - from our trip to Boston this past weekend to attend PAX East.
It was both a pleasure and an honor to make it out for the inaugural PAX on the East Coast, not only to attend the show, but also to participate in panels.
Everyone at Penny Arcade deserves all our gratitude for putting together such a smooth first - and completely sold out PAX in Boston. We're looking forward to PAX East 2011!
We weren't expecting the massive turnout for our panel on Saturday, "Naughty Dog LIVE: Game Design with the Dogs." When I got to the Naga Theater to setup for our panel, the line waiting to get in was insane - and it was a whole half-hour before our panel was due to start. I heard some people had been waiting in line for over an hour at one point.
It was sad to hear that PAX Enforcers had to turn away a...
