117w ago - Today Alexander Bravve at Nordcurrent has unveiled the sequel to Arcade Essentials dubbed Arcade Essentials Evolution for PSN alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Almost a year ago we released a Minis called Arcade Essentials. The game was very warmly received by the players, so we decided to produce a sequel with 5 new games. So here it is - a Minis called Arcade Essentials Evolution.
As was the case with its predecessor, Arcade Essentials Evolution is a collection of 5 arcade games, remakes of the classic arcade hits of the 80s that we all know. Each game consists of 50 levels, so there is quite a lot of gameplay time here.
We made minimalistic visuals with lots of special effects, so that they would feel like we are in real arcades. To get an idea of how it looks like and plays, please check the trailer:
First game is an enhanced version of a game about asteroids. In the beginning, levels are quite easy, however as you progress further, difficulty increases and new bonuses and asteroids types start to appear.

117w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has posted up a new Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One PS3 video today dubbed A Party of One with details below, as follows:
The team at Insomniac Games in North Carolina has been working hard to wrap up their first game, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One.
It's a terrific four-player co-op adventure, and we're really excited to have it in your hands next month. A frequent question we've been getting is "how is it when you play alone?"
While bringing co-op to Ratchet & Clank has been by far our number one request for the franchise, we know many of you love to sit down and play Ratchet & Clank and enjoy the fantastic worlds, inventive weapons and hilarious storylines on your own time.
I'm here today to talk a little bit more about the single-player experience. Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is built from the ground-up to be a co-op game, and many of the mechanics are very co-op based. So quickly realized we needed to give you a computer-controller partner to keep the gameplay balanced.
In that regard, if you play All 4 One alone as Ratchet, Qwark or Nefarious, you'll be teamed up with an AI bot playing as Clank. As you traverse the levels,...
