38w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Lead Game Designer Seth Killian has announced that both Zeus and Isaac Join the Battle Royale today!
To quote: Just stopping by today with a quick reminder that Zeus and Isaac Clarke are live today for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, along with our new stage "Graveyard"!
Graveyard mashes up MediEvil's zombies, mausoleums, and gargoyles with elements from The Unfinished Swan, revealed via ink splats after a mid-game whiteout. It looks great and keeps the fighting honest, with a medium-width playfield and zombies that will earn you AP when destroyed.
Zeus plays as a legendary heavyweight, making each strike feel epic. He's got limited range, but with the ability to power up every attack merely by holding down the button, he can crush a cowardly opponent's guard and build AP faster than anyone.
Many of his triangle lightning attacks are also excellent at catching multiple opponents for an even faster ride towards his truly Olympian level 3 super.
Isaac Clarke is at his best harassing opponents from mid-range, with a wide variety of projectiles powered up by his unique Stasis and Kinesis powers. He's no slouch at close range either, with some mighty melee attacks and the short-range force gun, but he shines brightest harassing...
38w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has announced today that Uncharted 3: Oddball PlayStation 3 DLC is out today.
Below are the details, to quote: The UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Free-to-Play launched a few weeks ago and we've seen a healthy uplift to our community, to the tune of over three hundred and fifty thousand downloads of the Free-to-Play client to date globally.
We're very excited to see our community grow, and we're stoked to keep expanding the world of UNCHARTED to as many people as possible.
To keep that momentum going, as promised, we're making new DLC available for purchase every month until June 2013. This month we're recognizing Extraterrestrial Abductions Day - or a day around it anyway - by unveiling our Oddball themed character parts for your UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer characters.
Why Oddball? Well, these character parts defy classification as they don't quite fit among the numerous other parts we'll have coming out over the next few months, and Extraterrestrial Abductions Day is a bit of an odd holiday anyway. Here's a glimpse at some of the...
39w ago - Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Paul Sullivan announced that the evolutionary RTS Forevolution comes to PlayStation Mobile today.
Below are the details, to quote: Forevolution is a real-time strategy game from Pygmy Studios in Osaka, Japan.
In Forevolution, you are the ruler of your own world with the power to influence animals, plants - even the elements themselves! You will truly feel empowered while controlling and creating life from this unique perspective.
During a trip to Laos, the creator of this game gained the following, simple insight: "Cows eat the weeds on the ground. Cows [fertilize] the land to grow crops. Humans eat cows. Humans die and return to the land."
This life cycle is the inspiration behind Forevolution, available today on the PlayStation Mobile marketplace. At $5.49, this uniquely styled, addictive RTS is a must have for PS Mobile fans.
If you've never downloaded a game from the Mobile store, now's the time to check it out. PS Vita owners can download Forevolution on the PlayStation Mobile section of PlayStation Store.
Owners of PlayStation-certified devices (see full list here) can obtain it through the PlayStation Mobile Store - click...
39w ago - Creat Studios VP of Publishing Scott Hyman has announced that Psych Yourself hits PSN today with details below.
To quote: It's been a busy PlayStation Network winter here at Creat Studios. We launched Labyrinth Legends in December, followed by Germinator on PS3 for Europe in February. Just last week, we released Germinator on PS3 in North America, and presented a Cross-Save version as our first PlayStation Vita game.
But we're not finished. Psych Yourself, the follow-up to the 2011 PlayStation Network best-seller, Test Yourself: Psychology launches on PS3 today in North America for $6.99.
Test Yourself tested and trained your innate abilities such as Intelligence, Attention Span, Reaction Times and Memory. Psych Yourself goes to the next level and delves into your inner-most psyche to help you discover what kind of person you really are:
Perception: How you perceive the world and events around you.
Creativity: Your ability to form original, independent thoughts and to conduct lateral thinking.
Emotional IQ: How well you can determine the feelings of others as expressed through facial expressions, body language and voice intonation.
All three categories feature a Daily Test to give you an in-depth, professional evaluation of your performance....
39w ago - Game Director Todd Papy has officially revealed the final multiplayer allegiance for God of War: Ascension which arrives today.
Below are the details, to quote: God of War: Ascension is out in North America today! It represents the culmination of two and a half years of blood, sweat, and tears on behalf of the God of War team at Santa Monica Studio.
We wanted to create the best looking, best playing, most compelling entry in the series to date, a game that took every aspect of the experience to a new level, that sought to show long-time fans a different side of the iconic Kratos character, and that added something entirely new yet addictively deep to the franchise: multiplayer, which many of you joined us in playing and improving during our Beta weeks ago.
We put a great deal of thought and effort into the multiplayer modes you'll discover in Ascension, including the recently revealed 2-player cooperative Trial of the Gods. Supporting this new addition to the God of War universe and the community we're hopeful builds around it for a while to come is of the utmost importance to us.
Looking forward to being among the first to receive access to an exclusive early demo of The Last of Us, included in each retail copy of God of War: Ascension? The new target date upon which that...
