Assassin's Creed III Q&A: Revolution & Evolution for PlayStation 3

100°
107w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an Assassin's Creed III Q&A today covering both the revolution and evolution of the upcoming video game for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Ubisoft raised more than a few eyebrows when it revealed its bold plans for Assassin's Creed III earlier this month.

In a sharp break from the Renaissance theme that has dominated the last three games, ACIII will shift its focus to the desperate, bloody days of the American Revolution in a story that spans 30 years.

The change is scenery is matched by a change in character, with protagonist Connor Kenway taking center stage as an assassin caught between the escalating atrocities of the Patriots and the Redcoats. It's a juicy premise positively bursting with potential.

With Assassin's Creed III set to land on PS3 this October 30th, we sat down with Creative Director Alex Hutchinson to discuss the game's ambitious premise and many, many gameplay enhancements.

Video: Wheels of Destruction Weapon Guide for PlayStation 3

100°
107w ago - Today Lead Designer Peter Porai-Koshits has shared some new video footage of Wheels of Destruction including a weapon guide for PlayStation 3 fans.

To quote: The weapon system in Wheels of Destruction is beautifully familiar yet dynamic and designed to keep the game balanced. Players who know class-based shooters like Unreal Tournament and Team Fortress 2 will instantly feel at home.

The game has four weapon types, each with primary and alternate fire conveniently selectable on the d-pad. This simple and intuitive system actually provides 11 unique ways to decimate opponents.

The Gatling gun is the initial weapon that everyone has from the start of a match. Available to the player throughout, it never runs out of ammo but is relatively weak and imprecise.

However, its alternate fire is tremendously powerful - it's a very short-ranged spread shot shotgun with massive force. Players with great skill and a bit of luck can land an instant kill shot but, most of the time, you're better off hunting for new weapons.

The next gun is almost as accessible and familiar - the rockets and mortar. Like many games, the rocket is pretty straight-forward. It's not necessarily a 'noobtube,' but it doesn't take much strategy to get in a quick kill shot.



 

Sony PlayStation Plus Updates for the Week of April 4, 2012

100°
107w ago - Sony's Ross McGrath of the PlayStation Store Team is here with the European PSN updates for the week of April 4th today, as follows below:

Hey guys, sorry we're a bit late to market this week with our content update, but hopefully you'll feel as though it's worth waiting for and very much in keeping with the quality you've come to expect this year.

It's always a good feeling to give away content in a single month that more than covers the cost of the annual subscription.

So by now, if you've headed over to the SCEA update you will see they're getting Shift 2: Unleashed and Shank 2 in their update this month, courtesy of the lovely folks at EA.

Here, it's no different, as EA's 145 car, 36 track monster of a racing title is now yours at no cost, alongside the ultra-violent and ultra-awesome grindhouse 2D platform-brawler.

Don't forget there are a huge number of additional cars and a couple of extremely useful time-saver packs available for Shift 2: Unleashed, all available from the PlayStation Store.

The PS one Classic this month is Silent Hill, which I'm sure you'll agree is a proper classic title - never before has radio static been so terrifying. Unfortunately you'll have to wait just one more short week until it's...
