Video: Hungry Giraffe Eats Its Way Onto PlayStation Network

100°
129w ago - Laughing Jackal Community Manager Ross Brierley has shared a video preview today announcing that Hungry Giraffe is eating its way onto PlayStation Network tomorrow.

To quote: I'm here to talk to you about our latest PlayStation minis game, Hungry Giraffe, which will be released tomorrow, exclusively and FREE for PlayStation Plus users.  

Hungry Giraffe will then go on general release on the 15th of February for just £2.49/€3.49.

Hungry Giraffe is our first foray into the endless climbing genre and is based on the experiences* of one particular giraffe who - bored of the foliage of the acacia tree - decided to stretch out his neck to reach the burgers floating in the sky.  Using the calories from the burgers to make his neck even longer, he moved from burger to french fries, taco to sandwich, on a desperate quest to stuff his face.

Of course our giraffe friend had to be wary of several hazards floating in the sky. After all, an anvil to the head seldom does anyone any good and as for poison, well, would you want clean up when a 1200 kg giraffe loses its lunch?  Unprescribed drugs are also best avoided, as human medicine tends to have strange hallucinogenic properties when taken by giraffes.

130w ago - Today Andrew Terrett of the SSX Marketing has shared a video revealing SSX Mt Fuji details and reviving a genre on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: SSX is just over a month away, and we're excited to give our PS3 fans in North America some exclusive content to keep you busy on the slopes.

Mt. Fuji, the legendary Japanese mountain will only available on PS3 in North America. The mountain that owns the horizon in Tokyo is packed with six unique event drops. Three race drops and three trick drops will have PS3 players carving down and in the majestic landmark in true SSX fashion - with a complete disregard for the laws of physics.

From racing through cherry blossoms to tricking off Torii gates, North American Playstation gamers will have something unique to look forward to when SSX arrives on Feb 28th.

Now a few words from the creative director on bringing back SSX from Creative Director Todd Batty:

"Extreme Sports is a dead genre." Over the past three years I can't tell you how many times I have heard this. As a gamer who has been playing for more than 20 years and, as a huge fan of games like SSX and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, it is also something that I refuse to believe.

Don't get me wrong: I enjoy blowing things up and shooting...
