53w ago - Ubisoft Production Manager Philippe Fournier revealed today that Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon explodes onto PSN this April 30, 2013 alongside a new video trailer below.

To quote: Hey guys I'm Philippe Fournier, production manager on the upcoming cyber-shooter Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.

It is 2007 - the future. Step into the shoes of Rex Power Colt, a cyber-commando sent to a remote island to stop Colonel Ike Sloan from taking over the world with his rogue cyborg army.

For Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, we wanted to go back to the late 80s and early 90s - what we like to call "the VHS era" - when video games were still new, and over-the-top action movies were at their pinnacle.

Most of the team grew up during those years, so it was a ton of fun to relive this carefree episode of our lives, where we could watch cartoons like MASK or GI Joe with Uncle Dan on Saturday morning.





During the conception phase, our days consisted of watching VHS tapes of action movies sitting in front of an old CRT screen. Our office space looked like a kid's room in the early 90s, with He-Man figurines on our desks and Terminator posters on every wall. We probably had the best Halloween day ever, with people dressed...

53w ago - DrinkBox Studios COO Graham Smith announced alongside a launch trailer video that Guacamelee rolls onto PS3 and PS Vita today.

To quote: I'm extra excited to announce that Guacamelee! comes out today on PS3 and PS Vita via PSN.

We're releasing the game as part of the Spring Fever promotion: $14.99 will get you both the PS3 and PS Vita versions, with a 20% discount for PlayStation Plus members.

Still there? Then allow me to add that Guacamelee! is a metroid-vania style brawler that supports Cross-Buy, Cross-Save, Cross-Control, has a precious Platinum trophy, and comes complete with rapid punching action.

Punch, punch, punch! Speaking of which, you may now be saying, "Hey guy, what's up with all of the punch talk?" Take a look...





Well, when we started making Guacamelee! we knew we wanted to include punching, but not just ordinary punching. We built a proof-of-concept demo, a video of which I have included below for your approval.





As you can see, we had blocking, we had holds, and we had charge-up moves. You'll be interested to know that we now have none of those things! Why, you ask?

54w ago - Curve Studios Lead Designer Sam Robinson has announced today that Stealth Bstard sneaks onto both PS3 and PS Vita video game platforms this Summer.

To qyote: Hello! I am utterly overjoyed to bring you news that Stealth Bstard, our outrageously devious stealth-puzzle platformer, will be sneaking its way on to PS3 and PS Vita this Summer!

If you've not yet heard of Stealth Bstard, it's our deadly stealth platform game with a fast paced twist! Following your birth in a cloning lab, you find yourself trapped in a vast and overwhelming network of dastardly chambers, replete with vicious, yet hilarious, booby traps and deranged robots!

Your task is simple; stay out of sight and get to the exit. Persevere to the bitter end and you might just discover the secrets of this vicious world!

We like to look at Stealth Bstard as stealth gaming without the waiting. Gone are the days of hanging around in a locker or a conveniently-placed human-sized crate! The mechanical foes of our stealth world are much less forgiving, instantly eviscerating you or your fellow captives on sight!

The game boasts brilliantly crisp visuals, an abundance of character, tight controls and a steady difficulty curve that gradually ramps up...

61w ago - Team 17 Digital Ltd Communications Exec Bethany Aston has announced today that Superfrog HD is leaping onto PS3 and PS Vita this year.

Below are the details, to quote: You may remember that last week we published a blog piece on the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita release of Alien Breed, in which our Creative Director, Kevin Carthew, made a sneaky reference to potential future retro-revivals of other classic Team17 titles.

Today, we're unveiling our plans to release Superfrog HD later this year, 20 years after the regal amphibian's first appearance. Superfrog HD will feature all new graphics, and is set to make an appearance on both PS3 and PS Vita.

Debbie Bestwick, Team17's Managing Director, says, "We're extremely excited about bringing Superfrog HD to PS3 and PS Vita; it's the most requested game that our fans are always requesting to see make a return.

Now, with the 20th anniversary of the original Superfrog and the recent re-release of our classic survival-horror Alien Breed, we feel the timing has never been better."

Superfrog was originally released on Amiga in 1993 and received much critical acclaim:

The One Amiga - 93% - "With Team17's impeccable track record I was expecting Superfrog to be well above par but it's far more than that...
 

Hitman: HD Trilogy Steps Out of the Shadows and Onto PS3

50°
63w ago - IO Interactive Studio Communications Manager Nick Price has announced today that Hitman: HD Trilogy is stepping out of the shadows and onto PS3!

To quote: The release of Hitman: HD Trilogy today on PS3 and PlayStation Network brings Hitman: Blood Money onto the PlayStation format for the first time. With it come two additional classic Hitman games - Silent Assassin and Contracts.

More than anything else IO Interactive has created in the past decade and a half, Hitman has been the defining series for the studio. Five titles in the franchise have been released in the last 12 years, across most AAA platforms available within the same time period.

The combination of the assassin fantasy, game mechanics and freedom of choice makes the Hitman series the most original set of games we have made at IO. Nobody had ever really seen a game like Hitman before – not even the developers who were about to create it.

It was a game about a stone-cold killer, but with tongue-in-cheek humor to balance the very mature themes in the game. As Tore Blystad, Game Director on Hitman: Absolution, says: "When dealing with such a dark topic ... you need something in there to compensate, to make it less cynical.

In the start of Absolution development we tried...
