114w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared a PS3 trailer video today spotlighting what's new in Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Over the last six months we've taken Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One to London, San Francisco, Seattle and Austin. Everywhere we go, people love playing in the Ratchet & Clank universe with three of their friends.
The cooperative gameplay, combined with a dash of competition, has really resonated with players, and we're eager for folks to get their hands on it next week (March 29) at our Community Day.
One thing we've heard a lot from our hardcore Ratchet & Clank fans and journalists (which is a group that intersects a lot!) is "this is awesome, but does it have a story?" Our answer: absolutely! All 4 One is a full Ratchet & Clank game with everything you know and love: story, cutscenes, humor, and weapons!
We're excited to give you the first glimpse of that story, with our first big trailer for the game.
Please let us know what you think in the comments! I'm probably sleeping as this is posted in the middle of the night, but I will answer your questions in...
114w ago - Hothead Games Director of Game Technology Joel DeYoung has made available a PSN launch trailer video today on Swarm which is hitting PlayStation Network soon.
To quote: We're super excited that Swarm is finally about to be released on PlayStation Network. The genesis of the original idea for the game stretches all the way back to 2006, shortly after we started Hothead.
There was an indie video game developer contest we wanted to enter, so we brainstormed a ton of ideas on what to submit. Dr. Mike Hayward, Hothead's resident Ph.D., brought forward a concept based on his doctoral research in artificial life.
He called it Swarm and it had plenty of science cred. We thought this was our contest winner, so we came up with a cute adorable character to go with his tech, the swarmite, and got to work on a prototype.
In the end we did very well in that contest, placing in the final four, winning the people's choice vote, and garnering $300,000 in winnings. Every time we wore a Swarm t-shirt in public, invariably someone would ask us about the character. People really seemed to like it. So we knew we were onto something. We just had one problem: what we created wasn't really a game.
But first: what is an EX Burst? EX Burst is equivalent of a super move in a game like Street Fighter. Each character has a special move which you'll recognize from their original game. During the EX burst, you'll have to input several button cues but each is customized for each unique character.
For example, Tifa's EX Burst features the same slot reels for her Limit Break in Final Fantasy VII. For Tidus, you'd have to align the cursor in the target zone like his Overdrive attack in Final Fantasy X.
For Squall, you'll have to pull the trigger just like in Final Fantasy XIII. The more successful you are with the button cues, the more devastating the attack.
The EX system is actually more than a special move because, during battle, you'll have to fill up a meter called the EX gauge. Once...
