Sony PlayStation Plus: Castle of Illusion Free for PS Plus Members

50°
2d ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced today that Castle of Illusion is free for PS Plus members with details below.

To quote: If you recognize the name Castle of Illusion from back in the day, you should know that this remake doesn't just offer upgraded graphics, but also periodic restructuring of the classic 2D side-scrolling platforming gameplay into a 3D space.

Although the graphics and gameplay are different, the storyline here is the same - dear old Minnie has been kidnapped by an evil witch and its up to you to save her.

As an added bonus, if you download this during the first two weeks it's available in PS Plus you'll receive the Castle of Illusion Sega Genesis Bundle, which adds the original Sega Genesis version of Castle of Illusion (1990) and a Mizrabel (that's the evil witch that kidnapped Minnie btw) dynamic theme for free. This bundle will only be available until 4/28 so be sure to download it before then!

In addition to Castle of Illusion, Plus members can purchase a number of titles at a discount including LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and Ethan: Meteor Hunter, and as a nice bonus you can download the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles OOTS avatar pack for free....

2d ago - Digital Extremes Associate Producer Pat Kudirka invites PlayStation 4 fans to celebrate Warframe's anniversary with a free weapon on PS4 today.

To quote: While the Digital Extremes team works towards deploying Update 13 on PS4, we're making a quick pit stop to celebrate how far Warframe has come in its first year with a special anniversary edition of Tenno Reinforcements.

Although your Tenno brethren on PC had a head start earlier in the year, PS4 Tenno hit the ground running right at launch. Incredible.

1st Anniversary Edition DEX FURIS

In celebration of Warframe's first year, and to thank all who have helped build Warframe into what it is today, The Lotus is gifting each Tenno with a First Anniversary Edition of the DEX FURIS.

Featuring an accurate high fire rate and low recoil, this Lotus-themed weapon also includes an additional weapon slot and is super-charged with a catalyst.

To claim this gift, PS4 players simply log in to Warframe before 11:00 AM Pacific on April 21st and open the inbox message, and the weapon will automatically be added to your Arsenal.

Video: Bound by Flame PS4: New PlayStation 4 Trailer Details Combat

50°
5d ago - Spiders Studio Project Manager Walid Miled posted up a fresh PlayStation 4 trailer video today spotlighting Bound by Flame on PS4, which offers a peek at the new combat details as follows:

Hi readers! This is Walid, producer at Spiders Studios. With the upcoming launch of Bound by Flame - our latest game and our first RPG for PS4 - we decided to tease you a little more with our combat system, via an extensive combat trailer explaining its mechanics. Enjoy!

Bound by Flame features real-time combat that's tactically deep, dynamic, and spectacular. Defeating your enemies won't be an easy task, as every single monster and creature you'll encounter has its own behavior, strengths, and weaknesses you'll have to exploit in order to tear them into pieces.





You'll be given access to three different skill trees to develop your character, each tree with its own unique abilities. The Warrior uses two-handed swords, axes, and war hammers to break his enemy's defenses and inflict heavy damage, while the stealthy Ranger dual wields daggers to sneak up on his enemies for devastating backstabs - and then fights the survivors in fast-paced melee combat. The Pyromancer channels the fiery powers of the demon: hurl fireballs, light...
 

Backgammon Blitz Comes to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita This Winter

50°
5d ago - Head of Mobile Robert Karp at The Fyzz Facility announced today that Backgammon Blitz is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita this Winter (Tuesday in the US).

To quote: Update: We are very pleased to share that Backgammon Blitz will be launching April 15th for PS3, PS Vita and PS4, priced at a bargain $7.99 Not only do you get the first ever recreation of this age-old board game for latest and greatest generation of consoles, but there is also the brand new and exclusive Blitz arcade mode, which takes the wonderful game of Backgammon and adds a whole new layer of depth and strategy.

I'm just the messenger, of course. The talented folks behind this lovely little title are known as VooFoo. Having made a name for themselves with Hustle Kings and Pure Chess, Backgammon feels like a step onwards and upwards for the studio, taking all of their strengths (gorgeous art design, a subtle but stylish approach to UI) and none of their weaknesses (cake night each Friday has always been their Achilles heel) into the next generation of platforms. VooFoo Studios yet again have done a fantastic job of making their visuals really stand out from the crowd - just check these screen shots below.

For me - and I hope you'll agree once you've gone hands-on with the final game - VooFoo aren't "just" developers...
