1d ago - Half of Ivent Games' Lyubomir Iliev announced that Strength of the Sword 3 is out today on PlayStation 3 with a fresh video trailer below.
To quote: Helloeveryone - Ivent Games here to announce that Strength of the Sword 3 is out today on PS3! I know you've never heard of us before, so I think an introduction is in order.
We're a tiny, indie team, comprised of just two people: me (Lyubomir Iliev) and my friend and colleague Georgi Rakidov.
For the past five years we've been hard at work on developing our first project: Strength of the Sword 3. It's a downloadable, challenge-driven sword fighting game exclusive to PS3. In it, you take control of a mechanical knight sent from the heavens to battle a rising evil that has swept the land... and that's pretty much all the story we're going to give you. Yeah.
But this isn't a game about story. This is a game about CHALLENGE! It's very old-school in that regard. It's the kind of game you "beat" instead of just "finish."
Strength of the Sword 3 has quite a different kind of combat system that combines action, strategy, and management challenges, centered on three types of resources and their offensive/defensive uses.
1d ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty announced today that the IGN PlayStation application is out today on PS4.
Below are the details, to quote: Greetings once again, PlayStation.Blog! My name's Colin, IGN's Senior Editor.
You may have seen me skulking around IGN PlayStation and making terrible predictions on Podcast Beyond, but today, I'm not here to make any pizza bets with you. No, I'm here to tell you about something exciting we've cooked up for PS4 owners.
IGN for PlayStation, our new app for PS4, is available today, and I'm pleased to tell you that you can download it for yourself - free of charge - when PlayStation Store updates. The app is currently exclusive to PS4, and will come to PS3 and PS Vita next year.
How does this benefit you, exactly? IGN's PS4 app will make you more popular with your friends, give you more energy, and even make the food you eat taste better (that's not true). But more importantly, our PS4 app will give you direct access to all of IGN's video content, letting you create custom playlists, while finding and consuming the exact content you're seeking.
What's truly cool about the app, however, is how granular you can get with it. You can rapidly come in and out of full-screen view, minimize a video...
1d ago - Voofoo Studios Creative Producer Shaun Read shared a video announcing that Pure Pool for PS4 brings the pool hall home on PlayStation 4.
To quote: VooFoo has been building quite a reputation for bringing you gorgeous looking games, and today is no exception with the announcement of our latest labor of love: Pure Pool for PS4.
Over the years we've worked hard to create visually stunning games. From the the critically acclaimed Hustle Kings, winner of Kotaku's 'Best Downloadable Sports Game of the Year' award, to the visual tour-de-force that is Pure Chess, the most realistic looking chess videogame you'll ever play; we certainly like our games to make jaws drop here at VooFoo.
We like our pool games here at Voofoo, so when Ripstone approached us with the opportunity to develop one for Sony's new hardware, we jumped at the chance.
Forget everything you know about pool games, because we're taking Pure Pool to a whole other dimension! This game will bring a living, breathing, connected Pool Hall to your living room. By now, you know we enjoy pushing hardware to the limit to create photo-realistic games.
2d ago - Following Sony's PS3 bans, today the first PlayStation 4 banning has been reported with the user's PS4 console receiving PSN error code E-82E0001D.
When the user was about to play Battlefield 4 Online this weekend, he received the following error code message: [E-82E0001D]
Apparently, the user was previously banned on the PS3 because of modding, meaning he most likely used the same PSN account.
To quote (via community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-4-Support/PS4-got-banned-from-PSN-E-82E0001D/m-p/42393327#M25588): VastmanisH: PS4 got banned from psn on day 1, i played BF 4 last night, and when i came online , it showed me this. I need explanation now, so mad right now. Sony why you do dissss , Unban me please!
A Laggy Christmas: I got no mail, I was banned on ps3 too, so maybe because of that, but it was 8 months ago and because of modding.
I called and they were no help, they just said that this ban is permanent and because of a TOS violation.
2d ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer revealed this weeks PlayStation Plus updates today, which include Borderlands 2 free for PS Plus members.
To quote: Borderlands 2, one of 2012's most critically acclaimed titles, is entering the Instant Game Collection tomorrow. Pick one of four new vault hunters (I went with Maya the Siren) and grab your randomly generated weapon, 'cause a pesky psychopath called Handsome Jack is terrorizing the world of Pandora (but hey, he does it in style).
Borderlands 2 excels in co-op mode, so team up with up some friends to explore the land. There are plenty of things to mow down for experience points and nothing feels better than a rare loot drop, plus you can customize your character to dish out more damage or provide support for you & your friends.
