Bellator MMA Onslaught: A More Accessible MMA Fighting Game

250°
109w ago - Sony Senior Producer Matt McEnerney at 345 Games has outlined Bellator MMA Onslaught details on building a more accessible MMA fighting game.

To quote: You may or may not heard of 345 Games, but we are part of Viacom Entertainment Group, which also houses cable TV channels like Spike TV and Comedy Central.

We've also launched a few recent PSN games such as Deadliest Warrior and Ugly Americans. I wanted to take some time and let you all know that our next title Bellator MMA Onslaught will be arriving to PSN this summer.

Bellator MMA Onslaught is an arcade-style fighting game grounded in the reality of an established MMA brand. If you've never heard of the Bellator Fighting Championships, it's an MMA organization that currently airs on MTV2 but will be moving to Spike TV starting in 2013.

Bellator is unique compared to other MMA leagues in that tournaments are held to determine who fights for the championship belt rather than having promoters select the fighter for a championship match. If you win, you move on.

If you lose, you go home. This philosophy works well in the video game space, where we are used to tournament-style progression...

127w ago - Laughing Jackal Community Manager Ross Brierley has announced today alongside a video trailer (below) that Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is coming to PlayStation Network this month.

To quote: Since the release of Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death, we've been asked one question more often than any other:

"When are you doing The Warlock of Firetop Mountain?" So, I'm delighted to be able to answer this one finally.

We will be releasing an adaptation of the first book in the Fighting Fantasy series, Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain on the 9th November 2011, priced at £3.49/€3.99.

Since the release of Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death we've been keeping a close eye on our fans' thoughts on the game to see what we could be doing better, and that's why Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain will include the following features and improvements:

• The Log Book now remembers which book you were in (Character, Item or Page)
• The user can now return to the top of the page by pressing the up button when the first option is highlighted
• A 'Good' generic alignment portrait has been added to Character Bios

136w ago - Today PlayS3ation 3 developer ThatOtherDev has updated his homebrew fighting game to Sketch Fight v0.2 with the changes detailed below.

Download: Sketch Fight v0.2 PS3 Homebrew Fighting Game

To quote: I bought a second controller and with it I was able to figure out how to get the controls working properly. So that is what I fixed in this update to Sketch Fight (which for the uninformed is a two player fighting game). Nothing else has changed.

In the future I’ll now always be able to test multiplayer PS3 games before releasing them

PS3 controls:

  • Left directional button = Move left
  • Right directional button = Move right
  • Down directional button = Move crouch
  • X button = Jump
  • Square button = punch
  • Circle button = kick





 

Sketch Fight v0.1 PS3 Homebrew Fighting Game is Released

137w ago - Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer ThatOtherDev has made available the initial release of a PS3 homebrew fighting game in development called Sketch Fight v0.1.

Download: Sketch Fight v0.1 PS3 Homebrew Fighting Game

To quote: This is a first version of something I have put together for the soon closing Scenery Beta 2011 international homebrew showcase.

Sketch Fight is a simple two player fighting game with crudely done hand drawn graphics that are intended to look like something a person would doodle when trying to cope with the mind numbing repetition and tedium that is school.

I only have one PS3 controller at the moment so I haven't been able to test it properly... Let me know if it isn't controlling correctly.

Edit: Apparently when a second controller is connected both controllers effect both players. So it is pretty much unplayable. I'll probably buy a second controller sometime soon so that I can test multiplayer games myself.

PS3 controls:

  • Left directional button = Move left
  • Right directional button = Move right
  • Down directional button =...

 

Video: Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death Hits PlayStation Minis

100°
141w ago - Laughing Jackal LTD Development Manager Daren Morgan has announced today that Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death is heading to PlayStation Minis alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: Steve Jackson & Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy series of interactive Gamebooks - "The adventures in which YOU are the Hero!" - have been published in 27 countries in 23 languages and have sold over 16 million copies.

Talisman of Death, one of the best-known Fighting Fantasy adventures, is the latest minis title from Laughing Jackal. Talisman of Death has also been the most controversial title in the series, with gory passages quoted by the Evangelical Alliance in their campaign to have Fighting Fantasy books banned as unsuitable for children.

Fighting Fantasy: Talisman of Death takes you to the once peaceful world of Orb, which is now in terrible danger. Dark forces are working together to unleash the awesome might of the Evil One. Your mission is to destroy the Talisman of Death before the dark lord's minions reach you. But beware! Time is running out!





Most of us here at Laughing Jackal are massive Fighting Fantasy fans. In fact for many of us, our earliest gaming memories are sitting...
