The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct PS3 Out Now, What We Learned

50°
78w ago - Terminal Reality Creative Director Drew Haworth has announced that The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct for PS3 is out now with details below.

To quote: When we became aware of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct opportunity with Activision and AMC, we leapt on it. We devised a first-person survival-horror strategy approach and pitched it.

Our game was planned as a labor of love: an endeavor to create a relatively intimate The Walking Dead game experience for fans like us... as well as players new to the series who were looking for a different type of zombie game. Our goal was to create an authentic and compelling experience worthy of the name.

Since then, of course, Telltale has released all the amazing episodes of their deserved Game of the Year, and AMC's series has consistently shattered broadcast television records! So while 'pressure' may be an understatement, we've stayed the course.

And Activision and AMC have been steadfast, wonderful partners in us making the game we set out to make in the first place: a new type of zombie game experience for players that want to take on The Walking Dead's world for a while!

Here are some of the lessons the team learned while developing The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, which is out today on PS3!
I was skeptical,...

94w ago - Today Sony Producer and Studio Head Sian Yue Tan has shared what is new in Rocketbirds: Hard Boiled Chicken for PS Vita, which is taking flight in 2013.

Below are the details, to quote: It's my pleasure to tell you that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is coming to the PS Vita in the first quarter of 2013!

[Register or Login to view links], our cinematic platform adventure game, has come a long way from its three IGF finalist nominations back in 2010. Since then, we listened to people's feedback and vastly improved the game for its PS3 release in October 2011.

That version had more technical improvements than we could shake a stick at; we made it fast and included stereoscopic 3D, added a new Jet Pack mode, a two-player couch co-op campaign and polished the heck out of it.

We received more great feedback, so when it came down to the PS Vita version, we jumped at the opportunity to iterate on the game once more. We added things like new chapters, puzzles and humor; a unique new Hardboiled difficulty setting; improvements to the controls to utilize the PS Vita's unique features; and improved connectivity for the cooperative campaign.

From the beginning, I've really wanted to include...
 

Marvel Announces X-Men Arcade is Coming Tomorrow to PSN

196w ago - Today Marvel Studios Licensed Games Manager Chris Baker has announced that X-Men Arcade is coming Tomorrow to PSN.

To quote: Joining Marvel Pinball on the PlayStation Network this Tuesday, [Register or Login to view links] holds a special place in my Marvel-loving heart and even helped shape my knowledge of the [Register or Login to view links] at a fairly young age.

OK, so maybe it was off in a few ways - and that's what I'm counting down here today.

X-Men Arcade holds up as one of the greatest beat-'em-up games of its era, and if you were a fan of it when it came out, I think you'll agree that the 18-year wait for a console version was definitely worth it... but not only for gameplay fun and nostalgia.

A big part of the game's charm playing it now is something we didn't really think twice about back in 1992 - powers that went beyond characters' capabilities, laughable in-game dialogue, and other oddities, for example.





In other words, the kinds of things that the person with my job at Marvel would strike down in a game design document...

228w ago - NIS America's PR/Marketing Coordinator Nao Zook has announced that What Did I Do to Deserve This, My Lord!? 2 for PSP arrives today.

To quote: Today, May 4th, [Register or Login to view links] was released to retailers nationwide!!

Just like the original [Register or Login to view links], this newly released My Lord 2 has lots of humor and American pop culture references! You can definitely expect to find yourself chuckling while playing it.

So, what's new with this sequel, you may ask? You already know that there are more heroes and different kinds of monsters, right? Let's talk about the new game systems!

First of all, the interface has been greatly improved, as you can see from the screenshot. The Monster Bar shown at the bottom of the screen tells you the ratio of monsters you have created in your dungeon.

This will give you a better idea of which monsters you should focus on creating more of, or ones you might need to thin out. Remember, balance is the key! Also, the orange, bolded text shown on the top part of the screen are comments from the heroes. Some old wise man once said, "The annoyance of heroes makes annoying comments!"

It's so true! But don't...
