111w ago - Dark Energy Digital Senior Creative Designer Rob Hewson has announced today alongside a video trailer that Hydrophobia Prophecy will be hitting PSN Tuesday with PlayStation Move support.
Below are the details, to quote: Launching a game is always a frantic, exciting time, especially when you are a small, close-knit team. The PlayStation Network launch of Hydrophobia Prophecy on November 1st is no exception; in fact we're even more excited than usual to have it launch as Game of the Month on PlayStation Plus, and we're really grateful to PlayStation for getting behind the game.
For those of you unfamiliar with the game, Hydrophobia Prophecy is third-person action adventure with a sci-fi twist and a unique dynamic feature; our custom HydroEngine fluid dynamics technology. It's a full physics simulation for flowing water - the only one of it's kind in games, which allows water to wash dynamically around the environments, carrying objects and characters along with it.
If you're a sucker for water or game physics, then it really is a sight to behold - we're very fortunate here at Dark Energy to have some incredibly talented tech-heads!
HydroEngine allows us to deliver dynamic and unique physics-based...

111w ago - Ubisoft PR Coordinator Alex Monney has unveiled a glimpse of the new PSN content they will be bringing to PlayStation Network this winter and beyond today!
To quote: Yesterday, Ubisoft hosted its second annual Digital Day where we showed off a handful of our upcoming digital products, including new PlayStation Network titles.
Last year, Ubisoft released some great PSN titles, such as From Dust, Outland, Clash of Heroes and Beyond Good & Evil HD. We're looking to build on that momentum with a diverse portfolio of digital games.
I Am Alive
In September, Ubisoft announced that I Am Alive was releasing on digital platforms this winter. At Digital Day, we showed off the long awaited game for the first time ever.
Our demo started off with the main character arriving back to his home town of Haventon one year after the event. He finds the place he once knew and loved torn apart by "the Event". Society is torn as everyone in the town of Haventon fight for survival. Your mission: find your family and stay alive.
Ubisoft Shanghai has put a lot of work in creating a new and unique take on the post-apocalyptic genre. I Am Alive plays to the sense of realism stepping away creating...
111w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up an All 4 One co-op report today on Mass Effect 3 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Yes, Virginia, there is a multiplayer mode in Mass Effect 3. And it's in the form of a galaxy-spanning PSN cooperative campaign that pits two to four players against wave after wave of relentless Reaper forces.
In this way, the basic premise of Mass Effect 3's Galaxy at War co-op mode is not unlike Call of Duty's Nazi Zombies or Modern Warfare 2's Spec Ops, only with the series' robust RPG progression system making the jump in full force.
In my demonstration of Galaxy at War, Bioware's team first teased what looked to be a large, interactive map that will enable teams to hop into different theaters of war spread around the galaxy.
You won't be able to port your Commander Shepard into the co-op Galaxy at War mode; instead, you'll create a new character from scratch, earning XP by slaying enemies and completing objectives.
The co-op scenarios are heavily combat focused, though simple objectives - such uploading computer files or disarming bombs - creep in from time to time. The pace is fast-paced and grueling, and your goal is simple: outlast your Reaper attackers.
