47w ago - Gearbox Software Writer Anthony Burch has announced alongside a video that Borderlands 2: Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt begins today.
To quote: Hey there, Anthony Burch from Gearbox here! Sir Hammerlock had told me that in the past he wrote his PlayStation fans a letter, so naturally when I mentioned I was writing this blog post he jumped at the opportunity to do it for me. Sucker! He's all book smarts.
Salutations, Vault Hunters!
Sir Hammerlock here, with a cracking proposal for you. Being the oh-so-well-armed badass you are, you've already saved the world, found a pirate's treasure, and spectacularly murdered your way to the top of a badass leaderboard or two. But.
Have you - he asked, pausing for dramatic effect - have you ever fought a Stalker the size of a small building? Have you ever fought a mystical shaman bandit who can level up his companions at will? Have you ever hunted down Scaylions, Boroks, Spores and Savages?
As you have not yet joined me on my excursion to the brutal continent of Aegrus, I shall pre-emptively answer on your behalf: "No, Sir Hammerlock," you say. "I have yet to do any of these things. Pray tell - how could a no-nonsense brigand like myself experience...
To quote from his blog: In time for the holidays, another revision bringing PS3 Game List to v2.0. The idea behind this release was to update the framework supporting the application, while implementing all the possible features (most suggested by users) fitting the time frame.
This version implements a very useful feature: support for RAR files (including multivolume and password protected archives). That means users can retire WinRar for their decompressing needs, as PS3 Game List is now able to load game info from RARs and extract data as well (up to 5% faster than WinRar, no less).
This functionality allows users to manage their compressed games, in addition to their standard game folders, games stored as ISO files and PKGs (PSN games and Homebrew), pushing the ‘all-in-one...
52w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton interviewed Monkey Island Creator Ron Gilbert today, who descends into The Cave with details below!
From the interview, to quote: If, like me, you grew up in the late '80s and early '90s it's likely that Ron Gilbert is responsible for many of your formative gaming experiences.
While at LucasArts he was responsible for a red-hot run of bona fide adventure game classics, including Maniac Mansion, Zak McKraken and the beloved Monkey Island series.
In January, he returns to the fray with The Cave, a delightful Sega-published 2D romp that, in true Maniac Mansion tradition, sees you picking three characters from a wildly diverse line-up of seven oddballs and descending into the titular caverns for all manner of puzzle-centric adventure.
From the brief section we've played, it's clear that Gilbert has lost none of his flair for fiendish puzzle design, barmy dialogue and madcap storytelling. It's shaping up to be a charming, challenging and wonderfully eccentric title that will both delight his core fans while being accessible enough to win plenty of new ones.
We caught up with the man himself when he was in London earlier this week to find out a little more about the project.
