Video: F1 Race Stars Gives The F1 Experience a Karting Makeover

98w ago - Codemasters Game Designer Simon Berry has posted up a video today showcasing a kart makeover in F1 Race Stars below.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] are well known for creating racing games with lots of depth, and in many ways our brief for F1 Race Stars (out on PS3 November 20th today) was no different.

When designing the game's structure we intended to provide ongoing variety as crucially as the instant appeal you'd expect from a "karting" game.

Firstly, along with the typical race event, we have introduced a host of other modes of racing. There are eight in total, each requiring unique skills and strategy – some will feel instantly familiar to gamers, and some will feel entirely fresh and unique.

For example, we've introduced Refuel mode - based on the principles of fuel strategy in F1, where fuel re-stocks are placed around the track, but carrying less fuel means more speed. Or Trophy Chase mode, a smash and grab event where players collect trophies, found both on the track and stolen from other drivers.

Gamers should feel instantly at home with other modes such as Sector Snatch mode, where players can own sectors of each track by setting the fastest split time though it, or racing in a classic Elimination mode.

Minority on Papo & Yo for PSN: Grafitti is Part of the Experience

50°
113w ago - Minority Creative Director Vander Caballero has confirmed today that grafitti is part of the experience in Papo & Yo for PS3 on PlayStation Network.

To quote: Hey everyone, Vander here. In my development career, I have never worked with authentic artists from the game's locale.

The project's art director is usually instructed to mimic what he can find from reference pictures. But in Papo & Yo, I didn't want to do the same thing.

I wanted it to be genuine. And I wanted local artists on the other side of the continent to have access to the beautiful canvas of video games.

Here's the full story from Deborah Chantson, our community manager.

As you might know, Papo & Yo is a metaphorical, semi-autobiographical story of Creative Director Vander Caballero's tumultuous relationship with his alcoholic father.

While the game's storyline will draw players into an emotional journey, we also designed the environment to help immerse the player in a surreal Latin American setting. There's a high level of authenticity on display, from the landscape to the music, style, and graffiti.

In North America, graffiti is changing to include more artistic works such as murals, but it's generally associated with spray painted tags and defaced walls....

We caught up with Eric Webb, producer from game developer id Software, at E3 2012 to talk about how the game has been buffed up for PS3.

PlayStation.Blog: How do you think all three games stand up today on PS3?

Eric Webb, Producer, Doom 3: BFG Edition: I think they all stand up really well. One of the first things we did when we first started work on it was pay attention to how the controls feel.

There's something about the DualShock 3 controller and its dual analog sticks that feels really good when you're holding it in a game like this. It gives it a different life and almost makes it an entirely new experience. So I think it's really cool on PS3.

139w ago - EA Sports Producer Nate McDonald has announced today that fans can experience Wimbledon this February through Grand Slam Tennis 2 for PlayStation 3.

To quote: We are very excited to be bringing this franchise to you on the PlayStation 3 platform. Right now, I'm going to give you a quick rundown of what you can be looking forward to in our demo, which is currently available on the PlayStation Store.

One of our big innovations is our All-New Total Racquet Control, where you can control every shot with the right analog stick, smashing forehands, backhands, overheads, and volleys with precision, accuracy, and power.

You can utilize this control system to take your game to the next level, however, if you prefer the old school button controls, those are still available to play with as well.

Also new, and exclusive to PlayStation 3, is our PlayStation Move support. The motion control experience gets you on your feet and literally puts the racquet right in the palm of your hands. With a little bit of practice in the Practice Court prior to playing a match, you should have a good handle on all of the different control schemes in no time!





Once you have developed your shots in the Practice Court,...
