Spry Fox Details Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita

8w ago - Spry Fox Chief Creative Officer Daniel Cook detailed Road Not Taken for PS4 and PlayStation Vita for fans today.

To quote: This post is about Road Not Taken, Spry Fox's upcoming roguelike for PS4 & PS Vita. If this is your first time hearing about RNT, check out our trailers here!

As we've mentioned in previous blog posts, Road Not Taken has procedurally-generated levels. That is, you get a completely new experience every time you venture into the forest.

When designing a game like Bioshock or God of War, a designer must hand-select the placement of every corridor, every object, and every enemy in the game.

With Road Not Taken, we're not hand-selecting anything. We spend our time creating interesting objects and enemies, and then carefully defining the probabilities of when and where you will encounter them.

The process reminds me of Duchamp's painting 'Nude descending a Staircase, No. 2'. For thousands of years, humanity painted a single instant, captured in time. Duchamp, inspired by advances in motion pictures, decided to paint all the possible states of a woman walking down the stairs in a single painting.

To me, designing a roguelike is...

Wolfenstein: The New Order PlayStation 4 Hands on: Old School

50°
8w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill went hands on today with Wolfenstein: The New Order on PlayStation 4 with what he proclaims as 'Old School' details below.

To quote: Wolfenstein: The New Order pits players against seemingly insurmountable odds in a skewed 1960′s where the Nazis conquered the world. An FPS that's old-school in all the best ways, it eschews modern niceties - no recharging shields here - in favor of merciless, finely honed shooting.

Our recent hands-on experiences with the PS4 version pointed to an invigoratingly confident single-player shooter of a distinctly different breed. Case in point: Original FPS hero B.J. Blazkowicz goes to battle with 100 health, which you'll top off by collecting medkits and gorging on food scattered throughout levels.

This traditional damage model combines with modern-day visuals, a surprisingly satisfying story, and strong character progression to create a unique and refreshing take on the genre. Old meets new, but in the best of ways.





Old-school in all the best ways

8w ago - Sony Senior Vice President Guy Longworth of PlayStation Brand Marketing shared a video today spotlighting InFamous Second Son on PlayStation 4 dubbed Enjoy Your Power below.

To quote: In just under a month from now we'll launch one of the most anticipated games of the year - inFAMOUS Second Son on PS4.

To fuel the growing excitement for the March 21st launch date, we worked closely with Sucker Punch Productions to create an adrenaline-fueled gameplay spot that dives into the defiant attitude of the game, combining both music and industrial superpowers.

In Second Son you'll play as Delsin Rowe, a superhuman being who decides that possessing spectacular powers is extraordinarily thrilling. He quickly learns the freedom that comes with mastering his abilities and we can't wait for you to experience that exhilaration for yourself.

Featuring new in-game footage and a track from Seattle grunge band Mudhoney, this spot highlights the game's jaw-dropping visuals. It also gives you the opportunity to revel in mastering Delsin's power as you stand up to the oppressive Department of Unified Protection.








The wait is almost over....
