Video: Sony Game Creator Reveals the Secrets of PSN's Dyad

50°
131w ago - Today Sony game creator Shawn McGrath has revealed the secrets of PSN's Dyad to fans as part of a new video trailer below.

To quote: Last week in New York City I was fortunate enough to show off Dyad, the almost-ready-done-really-soon-I-promise game coming to PSN for PS3. During our NYC showcase, the crew was kind enough to stop by and conduct a quick Q&A and gameplay session, and you can watch the results in this new original video.

Each of the game's 27 different levels touch upon a variety of mechanics and goals: forming long combos, racing, surviving as long as possible, hitting certain top speeds and more.

And the game's 26 special Trophy levels have challenging alternate goals, whether it's playing just by using sound or collecting objects as quickly as possible.

Since each level has a corresponding leaderboard to track online rankings, Dyad boasts a huge number of leaderboards - 52 in all, each requiring a unique set of skills to master.





I also wanted to mention that David Kanaga did the game's interactive music. Here's his [Register or Login to view links], and you can hear more of his interactive music [Register or Login to view links].
 

Video: Star Trek Teleports to PlayStation 3 with Co-op and 3D

131w ago - Sony Correspondent Andy Burt has announced today alongside a video trailer that Star Trek is teleporting to PlayStation 3 complete with both co-op and 3D for fans!

To quote: Thanks to the storytelling wizardry and storytelling chops of J.J. Abrams and [Register or Login to view links], one of the most beloved sci-fi series in history teeters on the brink of a renaissance among fans and newcomers alike.

With Star Trek for PS3, developer [Register or Login to view links] is crafting a standalone story that takes place between the 2009 film and the upcoming sequel. The hope: to boldly go where no licensed game has gone before.

Star Trek is a cooperative third-person shooter, but that description doesn't do the game much justice. The two controllable characters, Captain Kirk and Spock, both experience the story differently, with branching paths and narratives that will give the game a substantial amount of replay value.





Each character is also equipped with their own individual weapons and skills, each complementing the other in a variety of ways. For instance, Spock's Vulcan mind meld ability allows him to turn foes into allies, forcing oncoming threats...

131w ago - Senior Producer Zach Wood has announced today that Axel will be available to all tomorrow alongside the Starhawk Sweet Tooth Skin as part of the incoming Twisted Metal PS3 update.

To quote: We're pleased to confirm that Axel will be available to all Twisted Metal players with the upcoming free patch on April 18th.

If you missed him through early pre-order access, this will be your chance to deal some serious destruction in new ways. Bothered by some unrelenting enemies? Blow them away with Axel's signature Crowd Control attack, or run them right over with his ruthless War Wheel alternate special attack.

You can learn more about Axel gameplay strategies (along with strategies for all vehicles) in the Twisted Metal University series at [Register or Login to view links].

After studying up on your vehicle of choice, take it for a spin in online multiplayer where we've tirelessly been working on updates driven by user feedback. Give it a try and keep the feedback coming!

Finally, you've seen pictures from our initial January announcement that Sweet Tooth would be making an appearance in Starhawk, but you've never seen him in action...until today. Check out Sweet Tooth's Outcast form in this new video:

131w ago - Sony PlayStation Correspondent Andy Burt has shared some hands-on impressions alongside a new video trailer today of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of The White Witch for the PS3 video gaming system below.

To quote: It's been quite a while since Namco Bandai Games first announced PS3-exclusive Ni No Kuni: Wrath of The White Witch.

A collaborative effort between veteran RPG maker Level-5 and veteran animation house [Register or Login to view links], Ni No Kuni promises to seamlessly blend Ghibli's gorgeous art style with Level-5′s RPG chops for a completely unique experience not seen on PS3 until now.

I went hands-on with the game at Namco Bandai's recent media event in Las Vegas, exploring the lush world of Ni No Kuni, battling a plethora of creatures, and traversing through a pig-obsessed city appropriately titled Hamelin.

If you haven't yet, check out the gorgeous new trailer for Ni No Kuni: Wrath of The White Witch below.

If you're unfamiliar with what Ni No Kuni is all about, here's a quick refresher: players take on the role of Oliver, a young boy who has just lost his mother, as he searches for a way to find her again.

Video: Hands-On: Deadmau5 SoundShapes Stage for PS Vita

131w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has gone hands-on today with some video footage of the Deadmau5 SoundShapes stage for PS Vita below.

To quote: It's no secret that electronica artist [Register or Login to view links] signed on with Toronto-based Queasy Games to collaborate on the upcoming PS Vita musical platformer Sound Shapes.

But last week we finally tasted the succulent fruits of that creative collaboration.

During a media showcase in New York City, Sound Shapes Producer Jason deGroot kindly demonstrated a new set of levels (a "Record" in the game's lingo) that featured audio effects provided by the mousey maestro and pixelicious art courtesy of indie developer [Register or Login to view links].

You can analyze the results for yourself below - headphones recommended!

It's worth noting that deadmau5's album tracks, such as the pop cut "Ghosts 'n Stuff," won't be appearing in Sound Shapes. And that's by design: the game's interactive soundtrack synthesizes with your platforming progress, making each "performance" a unique arrangement.

But deadmau5's sounds, loops, and rhythms are showcased in a dedicated set of levels. Better yet, his library will be available when it comes time to construct custom...
