121w ago - Cold Beam Games CEO Steve Hunt shared some background today on the upcoming PS3 video game entitled Beat Hazard Ultra, which will arrive on PSN in September and be powered by your music!
To quote: My name is Steve Hunt and I'm excited to talk about my PSN game Beat Hazard Ultra, which hits the PS3 this September. I wrote the game from scratch on my own, in my bedroom!
About the Game
Beat Hazard Ultra is a twin stick arcade shooter that is entirely powered by YOUR music! Just copy some music on to your PS3 hard drive, or use the built-in songs, choose a track, and be dazzled by the eye-bleeding visuals as you blast away at enemy ships to the sound of your favorite pumping tunes.
Everything you see in the game is dictated by the music in some way, from the firepower of your ship to the number and patterns of enemies coming at you. Each track produces a unique (but, most importantly, repeatable) level.
In addition to Standard play, Ultra has plenty of cool gameplay features to keep you busy, including Boss Rush and Survival modes, 23 perks to unlock and 42 in-game challenges that award 14 trophies. There are also three awesome...
121w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a Q&A video interview today with Ken Levine who discusses BioShock Infinite PS3 and his PlayStation Moves.
To quote: It's always a pleasure to speak with Ken Levine, creative director for the award-winnging BioShock and the PS3 dystopian epic BioShock Infinite.
Ken's been good enough to drop by before, bringing news of PlayStation Move support as well as an upcoming PS Vita BioShock game, but we've never been able to immortalize him in crisp HD video.
Until now. In Rey's lovingly produced video feature, Levine lays out his plan for Infinite domination, starting with creating a convincing relationship between lead characters Booker and Elizabeth as they seek to escape the crumbling city of Columbia.
Levine also touches on the origins of Songbird, a biomechanical beast that has jealously locked Elizabeth in the depths of Columbia since her birth. Songbird completes a warped sort of love triangle between Booker and Elizabeth that promises to play out in the game in a big way. "There's a lot of mystery around Songbird, and I think people will be surprised by his relationship with Elizabeth – it's a complicated relationship that has elements of light and elements of darkness."
121w ago - Tozai Games Director/Producer Brett Ballow has confirmed that Spelunker HD hits the European PSN Store tomorrow alongside a video trailer below.
To quote: Good news my fellow Spelunkers of SCEE territories - the wait is over! It's time to charge up your headlamps and push your cave exploring tendencies to all new heights... er, depths: Spelunker HD is coming to the PlayStation Store tomorrow.
Throughout your arduous adventure you will encounter all the wicked elements of Timothy Martin's original 1983 masterpiece, but with so many newly concocted ways to die it may feel a bit like a devilish set-up... a cave of untold riches guarded by more pits, tricks, traps and more enemies than are stars in the night sky.
But the only stars you'll be seeing for weeks will be the ones circling your head as you run, jump, blast and scratch your way ever deeper towards the 100,000 meter finale. The 100 newly devised caverns may be set in 10 brand new high definition environments, but are just as behemoth in size and complexity as you remember and expect. And getting to the bottom is only half the battle.
But that's not the only catch; Spelunker, reputedly the weakest...
121w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared a peek at some Resistance 3 PS3 multiplayer Alice Springs video footage below today for fans!
To quote: If you've been following Resistance 3 coverage over the last few months, one of the cool features of our game is that many of our main multiplayer maps take place outside of the United States (where the single-player campaign focuses on Joseph Capelli's harrowing journey from Haven, Oklahoma to New York City).
In the multiplayer beta, you will find the Trainyard map, set in sunny Bogota, Colombia, as well as the Seaside map set in Glamorgan, Wales, UK. Earlier this year, we revealed the Prison MP map, which is set in Fort Lamy, Republic of Chad in Africa.
Today we're revealing the fourth of our major 16-player maps for Resistance 3. This map brings the fight to the Australian Outback, as the Main Street of Alice Springs, Australia is our latest MP map. Situated in the Northern Territory of Australia, Alice Springs is a sun-baked, dusty, desert town in Australia.
The land down under has always had an interesting place in the lore of Resistance, being the site of a gigantic refugee camp called Avalon One, and for years...
122w ago - Today Sega Digital Campaigns Manager Mike Kebby has made available a new Renegade Ops PS3 game modes trailer video alongside details on the team, as follows:
I'm here today to give you the low-down on the game, introduce the team that you'll becoming familiar with, and basically let you know just how damn awesome the whole thing is!
Before I get into the narrative meat, I'll run you through the core of the game; it's a top-down twin-stick shooter, which sees you take control of one of four character specific vehicles.
Each vehicle comes with its own set of attributes and specific play-style, all of which hinges around the special ability of each character. This is all focused around one thrilling campaign that can be tackled in single-player, two-player split-screen, and four player co-operative/competitive (co-opertition as we like to call it) modes.
You'll be working on levelling up your character of choice, unlocking various upgrades, and ultimately hitting the highest rank and ensure your place at the top of the online leader boards.
With the world cowering to the tyrannical madman that is Inferno, and with his impending global dominance on the horizon, it's through a self-imposed purpose to rid the globe of this menace that we join the Renegades....
