Relentless Unveils a BTMF Christmas Advent Calendar PS3 Theme

50°
213w ago - Relentless Software CG Supervisor Stewart Jones has unveiled their upcoming Blue Toad Murder Files (BTMF) Christmas Advent Calendar PS3 Theme today.

To quote: With the festive season and Blue Toad Murder Files first birthday approaching we wanted to have an extra 'Christmas Present' in the shape of a theme to hand out with our game. Please have a read to hear what we've done!

The idea of a Blue Toad Christmas Theme was discussed; we're all big fans of Christmas! As a result a brief was created in which we needed to take the village of Little Riddle and add some festive spirit to the design... Oh, and any reference to an advent calendar would be appreciated too!

We decided that the background should stay the same throughout; however, we wanted to use the iconic detective's magnifying glass to show a different image each day during December leading up to Christmas Eve.

Having the number of images in the theme limited to 24 which spookily coincides with the number of windows in a traditional advent calendar seemed like a good omen!

At first we had an actual advent calendar displayed over the whole screen, but in practice this obscured the XMB and no one could easily navigate the options... Fail!

ESA: Follow PlayStation's Lead and Help Protect Video Games

550°
215w ago - Today Rich Taylor of the Entertainment Software Association has shared the following PSA via PlayStation Blog on the effort to help protect video games.

To quote: Today, the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments in the case of [Register or Login to view links]/ Entertainment Software Association. They'll decide whether a California law, which would restrict the sale of "violent" computer and video games, is constitutional.

What does this mean to you, PlayStation fans?

This case could have huge implications for the industry. No one is sure what counts as a "violent" game, so the California law would suppress game developers' imagination and right to self-expression. It would also prohibit retailers from selling the games that might be perfectly legal, "just in case."

It could mean an environment where "[Register or Login to view links]" is banned from retail shelves, but the sometimes violent written works detailing Greek myths are still available on bookstores shelves and taught in classrooms.

It's a slippery slope, and the California law is similar to what Congress tried to do to comic books over fifty years ago. In a letter of support for video games, comic book legend...
