40w ago - Arrowhead Game Studios CEO and Game Director Johan Pilestedt announced today that Helldivers is hitting PS4, PS3 and PS Vita later this year with 5 things fans need to know below!

To quote: Hey there, Johan from Arrowhead here. I'm excited to give you an update on how Helldivers is coming along since our announcement at Gamescom in August. For those of you who haven't seen much of the game - Helldivers is a top-down, twin stick shooter set in a dystopian world, coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita this year.

As a part of an elite fighting force "The Helldivers," you battle for humanity against 3 formidable alien races, protecting the inhabitants of Super Earth from the ugly realities of intergalactic warfare. But how did this ugly war begin? Hmm...

Intergalactic Campaign

Helldivers is all about team work, the entire community wages a intergalactic war played out over 4-6 weeks (we are still tweaking the exact time frame), every victory and every defeat impacts the war which can be either won or lost, depending on the efforts of you - the community.

Whether you're cooperating with your 2-4 person squad or fighting steadfastly alone, you choose the mission that matches your capabilities. Rise through the ranks and earn new weapons and perks or save entire planets...
 

Cosmic Star Heroine Coming to PS4, VVVVVV is Hitting PS Vita

50°
64w ago - Today Zeboyd Games Lead Designer Robert Boyd announced that Retro Sci-fi RPG Cosmic Star Heroine is coming to PS4 and PS Vita alongside VVVVVV to PlayStation Vita as well.

To quote: We here at the two-man development studio known as Zeboyd Games are pleased to announce that our next RPG, Cosmic Star Heroine, will be coming out on PS4 and PS Vita next year! And to go along with that announcement, here's our Sega-CD inspired opening video for our game! Enjoy!

A very special thanks to Dean Dodrill (Dust: An Elysian Tail) who helped out with effects and animation, as well as Chris Geehan and Dan Byrne-McCullough over at Hyperduck (who did the music for our last RPG) for helping make that video go to 11! And of course, our own Bill Stiernberg, who handled the brunt of the work!

Cosmic Star Heroine is our latest attempt to recapture the feel of some of the classic RPGs of the 90s, while putting our own unique spin on the whole experience. Inspired by games like Chrono Trigger (visual style, on-map battles, combo techniques), the Phantasy Star series (overall feel of the worlds and characters), and the Suikoden series (political intrigue, expandable player headquarters), we can't wait to share Cosmic Star Heroine with you!



 

Wasteland Kings is Hitting PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2014

50°
66w ago - Vlambeer's Rami Ismail announced today at Gamescom 2013 that Wasteland Kings is hitting PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2014.

To quote: Vlambeer has been around for almost three years.

It's sort of a weird realization for the two of us that the past three years of our lives – practically every moment after we decided to run a games company full time - has been dedicated to making the games people know us for.

It's been an amazing run that's taken us from extreme highs to emotional lows, and introduced us to so many amazing people - whether they're developers or industry or fans.

Vlambeer is something weird. You see, the two of us are polar opposites. Whereas JW is an artistic and creative force full of weird ideas, I tend to do business and programming. If you've ever put two people like that in a single room, you know they don't tend to get along well.

That was true for the two of us as well, and we created this third person that resulted from the collision between us. That third person is what Vlambeer truly is - it's neither Jan Willem nor me. It's a separate "person."

The reason I'm explaining all this is because it is important to explain what the game we just announced for PS4 and PS Vita is.

Vlambeer started in September 2010....

50°
94w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has confirmed today that Assassin's Creed III: The Tyranny of King Washington will be hitting PS3 on February 19th, 2013.

To quote: A lot has changed in the world of Assassin's Creed III... with the introduction of our first single-player episodic DLC The Tyranny of King Washington this Tuesday, we figured we should reacquaint you with the hero you thought you knew.

In the shattered reality of The Tyranny of King Washington, the events that shaped a young Mohawk warrior into the heroic Connor of AC3 never happened, thrusting a confused Ratonhnhake:ton into a sometimes torturous, yet occasionally blissful, waking dream. Can he obliterate King Washington's demented reign?

To combat George Washington, the former champion of American freedom turned power-mad overlord, Ratonhnhake:ton will need to master new abilities:

• Power of the Bear - Fills Ratonhnhake:ton with the strength and fury of the mighty bear.
• Power of the Eagle - Delivers a burst of speed, empowering Ratonhnhake:ton with blinding agility.
• Power of the Wolf - Adopt the master camouflage of the wolf, rendering Ratonhnhake:ton undetectable.
• Warpaint - A symbol of power and courage enhancing Ratonhnhake:ton's abilities.
• Alpha...
 

Video: Step Up to the Plate: MLB '13 The Show Hitting Enhancements

50°
95w ago - Sony Community Manager Ramone Russell at San Diego Studios has shared a video today spotlighting the hitting enhancements in MLB '13 The Show for PS3 today.

To quote: Hitting is such an important aspect in baseball, and it's an area we continually strive to make as realistic as possible. Last year we introduced our True Ball Physics engine to the franchise for ultra-realistic ball physics.

This year we've done even more work to really make this area of the game as dynamic as possible with true to life outcomes. Take a look at what we've done to make hitting in MLB '13 The Show more accessible to everyone.

We really want to make hitting more streamlined for players. Beginner mode allows people who have never played The Show - or have struggled with it - to learn the fundamentals of hitting. It's meant to teach you the basics of Plate Discipline, Pitch Recognition and Timing.





This mode uses adaptive A.I. that only advances as you do. If you take longer to get the hang of hitting in The Show, you won't be forced to advance. The A.I. will only advance once you've passed a certain threshold at each level.
