Video: Anomaly: Warzone Earth for PS3 Out This Week on PSN

85w ago - Eleven Bit Studios Senior Writer Pawel Miechowski has announced today alongside a video that Anomaly: Warzone Earth for PS3 is out this week on PSN!

To quote: Hello everyone, Pawel Miechowski here from 11 bit studios.

I'm really happy to announce that our original mixture of strategy and action Anomaly Warzone Earth launched yesterday on PlayStation Network.

As I explained last month, Anomaly is essentially the first ever Tower Offense game. Instead of defending towers, you create troops and send them on missions to destroy extraterrestrial machines.

As the war rages around you, you can plan and re-plan your strategy via a Tactical View and adjust your plans to suit your current predicament.

And to make things more frantic, you play as the Commander, who's supporting troops in battle with various Special Abilities, such as Repair for healing units or Decoy for distracting enemy towers. If you want to buy new units or upgrade them, you have in-game cash to do so. Funds can be earned either by destroying enemies or mining resources like in any classic RTS.





Briefly, that's Anomaly: Warzone...
 

Payday: The Heist Wolfpack DLC on PlayStation Network Next Week

89w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Producer Oliver Smith has confirmed today that the Payday: The Heist Wolfpack DLC will be hitting PlayStation Network next week.

To quote: Attention PAYDAY crew! Wolfpack, the first PSN downloadable content for PAYDAY: The Heist, is coming to North America next Tuesday, August 7th.

We've been busy casing some new jobs for you, with Wolfpack featuring two never-before-seen epic heists - Undercover and Counterfeit.

The Undercover heist forces players to drive away the pesky police interrupting a back alley deal, while the Counterfeit heist pressures players to use silenced weapons to keep whistle-blowing civilians from escaping an underground money printing gig. If they tell the 5-0, they'll blow the whole operation!

We're also arming you with new weapons and crewmembers to ensure the job goes smoothly. These new heists require advanced skills, but award bigger payouts. Key features of the Wolfpack DLC include:

• New Weapons: Spray some lead on the move with the all-new auto handgun and assault rifle, or blow away tenacious foes with the shiny new grenade launcher. Need someone to watch your back? Release the deployable sentry gun to take out your enemies.

• The Technician: Based on the character Wolf, the technician...
 

Video: Sony Game Creator Reveals the Secrets of PSN's Dyad

104w ago - Today Sony game creator Shawn McGrath has revealed the secrets of PSN's Dyad to fans as part of a new video trailer below.

To quote: Last week in New York City I was fortunate enough to show off Dyad, the almost-ready-done-really-soon-I-promise game coming to PSN for PS3. During our NYC showcase, the crew was kind enough to stop by and conduct a quick Q&A and gameplay session, and you can watch the results in this new original video.

Each of the game's 27 different levels touch upon a variety of mechanics and goals: forming long combos, racing, surviving as long as possible, hitting certain top speeds and more.

And the game's 26 special Trophy levels have challenging alternate goals, whether it's playing just by using sound or collecting objects as quickly as possible.

Since each level has a corresponding leaderboard to track online rankings, Dyad boasts a huge number of leaderboards - 52 in all, each requiring a unique set of skills to master.





I also wanted to mention that David Kanaga did the game's interactive music. Here's his Dyad EP, and you can hear more of his interactive music here.
