109w ago - San Diego Studios Community Specialist Mark Wilson has shared some details today on Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system below.
To quote: I recently sat in for the first time with the game team on Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest while they were putting the finishing touches on the game, coming Tuesday, November 15th. Not to my surprise, the game not only met my expectations but far surpassed them.
The first comment I will make to anyone who asks me to best describe Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest will simply be "try it." I know that statement won't win any literary awards for video game commentary, but it is my honest answer. Those that have tried Medieval Moves: Deadmund's Quest agree that the gameplay speaks volumes.
In one scenario, a hoard of skeletons charged straight at me. I knew I was in trouble... out-numbered, and more than a little frightened. Then I thought of my supply of dynamite. Instead of having to recall the button presses needed to access and launch my stick of dynamite, I simply held the PlayStation Move motion controller in front of me, shielding its light from the camera in order to keep the fuse lit.

109w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared an interview today with Ken Levine, which spotlights taking BioShock on PS3 from Rapture to Columbia.
To quote: BioShock's writer and Creative Director, Ken Levine, and his team are now working on BioShock Infinite, a departure from the dark, dystopian corridors of Rapture into the bright skies of Columbia, a floating city named after the female personification of the United States of America.
I recently had the chance to sit down with Ken to talk about the philosophies that underpinned the original BioShock and how, if at all, these are being applied to BioShock Infinite.
PlayStation.Blog: What's more important to you: surprising the player or making existing fans feel familiar?
Ken: When you look at BioShock Infinite, you can't deny that it's a BioShock game. However, and this might seem counter-intuitive, Rapture was a surprise to the player; you wanted to see what was around each corner because it was so strange.
If we were to take you back to Rapture then that surprise element would no longer be there. Weirdly, we had to change BioShock in order to make it BioShock, or at least to retain that core principle of the unexpected.
