PopCap Games Confirms Bejeweled 3 Glimmers on PSN Tomorrow

50°
104w ago - PopCap Games Director of Editorial and Social Media Jeff Green has confirmed that tomorrow Bejeweled 3 will glimmer for fans on PSN.

To quote: I've got some good news for Bejeweled fans: We stopped watching kitten videos, fixed the hamster wheel, and are now happy to report that Bejeweled 3 is finally coming to PlayStation Network! Huzzah!

Now if you've played Bejeweled 1 or 2 before, you may be asking why you should upgrade to Bejeweled 3. "How much different could they make a Match 3 game?" you may ask.

"What do I do this time- Match 4?" "Do I really need to give those clowns more of my money just to swap more gems?"

I'm going to be perfectly honest with you: Yes, you do. I mean, "need" is such a relative word, when you think about it. I mean, sure, I suppose some of you "need" to pay the rent, or feed your family, rather than buy the new Bejeweled. Whatever.

Frankly, the landlord can probably wait a few days, and I'm sure there are plenty of leftovers in your fridge if your family starts whining at you while clutching their swollen, distended stomachs. Meanwhile, those gems in Bejeweled 3 aren't going to swap themselves, are they? No sir. No, they are not. I rest my case.

But perhaps you want a few details on what it is you're actually buying...
 

Resistance: Burning Skies Survival Mode Unveiled for PS Vita

50°
104w ago - Today Sony Senior Producer Frank Simon has unveiled the Survival Mode in Resistance: Burning Skies for PlayStation Vita.

To quote: Over the last couple of weeks we've been talking a lot about the highly anticipated multiplayer mode for Resistance: Burning Skies for PS Vita.

Supporting up to eight players over WiFi with a robust arsenal of powerful weapons and the precision and accuracy that come with dual-analog controls, Resistance: Burning Skies is sure to be the best FPS multiplayer experience available on a handheld.

We've already lifted the lid on the first two modes, Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, and just last week at an event in San Francisco we revealed the title's last multiplayer mode, Survival Mode, an intense power struggle between humans and the gruesome Chimera.

Survival mode pits the players against each other in a race to the finish where only the strong survive. Here's how it works: in a battle of humans vs. Chimera, six players start as humans and two as Chimera.

As the Chimera players make a kils, their human victims are resurrected as Chimera so the balance slowly shifts. As the battle continues, the winner is the human player who lasts the longest in a match. We keep a timer running as you play so you can track your progress.

Video: Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Powers Up for PlayStation 3

350°
104w ago - Sony Correspondent Andy Burt has posted up a video today spotlighting Tekken Tag Tournament 2 powering up for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system!

To quote: Though Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has been available in arcades since earlier this year in the States (and back into September in Japan), the revamped PS3 version brings numerous new characters and a new training mode that re-imagines the series' previously established mini-games.

While the main fighting mechanics of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feel familiar to anyone acquainted with the series' staccato combat style, the console version introduces a few new ways to lock horns with worthy competitors.

You can now fight opponents in several configurations - two against two, two against one, and one against one - and each of these modes is available at any time.

In matches that pit one character against two, the disadvantaged player receives a more generous life bar but obviously cannot switch fighters when the going gets rough. Conversely, the player with two fighters will have to pay close attention; in true Tekken tag form, you'll lose the round if either character is KO'd.





During the Namco Bandai Gamer's Day, the developers...
