50°
78w ago - Lockwood Publishing Director Sophia Coney has announced that the free-to-play shooter dubbed Uproar is hitting PlayStation Home today alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: Uproar is a frantic and fun third-person shooter exclusive to PlayStation Home. Why play cover to cover when you can free roam?

Uproar is the first avatar based free-roaming third-person shooter in PlayStation Home and it pulls out all the stops to bring you an experience unlike anything seen on the platform before.

The game is extremely easy to jump into and play, the controls and gameplay will be instantly familiar to anyone who has played a third-person shooter before, however there are some very interesting tweaks to spice up the gameplay and keep it all feeling fresh.

We think it'll give you and your friends countless hours of fun battling it out within the Uproar Arena.

Pick your side. You can choose to fight on the side of either of our two gangs; the Outlaws or the Swyfts, as they battle for respect within the Uproar Arena.

Each gang has its own unique set of clothing available within the inventory screen (all of which is wearable outside of the game), as well as a set of gang booths in the Uproar Lobby to hang out in with your fellow gang members and chat before...
 

24 Caret Games on Retro / Grade: How to Play a Reverse Shooter

100°
88w ago - 24 Caret Games Co-founder Matt Gilgenbach has outlined today how to play a reverse shooter as part of some new Retro / Grade tips below.

To quote: We recently announced that Retro/Grade, the first game played entirely in reverse, would be releasing exclusively on PSN on August 21st.

Understanding and developing a game that is played in reverse is tough, so I want talk about how it all works.

Firstly, how did we design a game played in reverse? We worked backwards of course! We started with the idea that it'd be cool to play a game where time is flowing backwards, but we didn't have any ideas on how to pull that off. We did a lot of brainstorming - time reversing is a hard concept to wrap your head around.

We figured for gameplay purposes, undoing your actions would be the best fit for that theme. When undoing, you have to match both the timing and the position of previous actions.

When matching timing, music is the best way to achieve that, so we thought rhythm gameplay would be the best mechanic to build the game around. We figured a 2D game where your motion is constrained to a few discrete lanes would make it easier to match the positions.

A 2D spaceship shooter seemed like a great fit for the theme, so we tried to incorporate elements from...

Download: Cubicle Shooter City v0.1 PS3 Homebrew Game / Cubicle Shooter City v0.1 PS3 Homebrew Game (Mirror)

From his blog, to quote: Recycle today for a better tomorrow! Cubicle Shooter City is a top down dual stick shooter that uses the city generator I made for Hero City 2 and the character models from Cubicle Shooter.

To be honest I'm not very happy with how it turned out. It performs poorly and I think it looks ugly. Does anyone want me to continue working on this? What would you like to see added or changed? There where a few things I was planning to do but now I think I'm most likely going to just abandon this.

In b4 someone gives me sht for making a new game and abandoning it to move on to other things instead of sinking 20 years of my life into perfecting its mediocrity.

I will definitely be working on UFO Racer this month, I'm also going to be posting source code soon and for any of you with a homebrew enabled Wii I'll be making Wii ports...

106w ago - Senior Producer Rob Hill has announced today that MMO shooter Defiance is coming to PS3 along with a new video trailer of the game in action below!

To quote: I'm Rob Hill, Sr. Producer on Defiance, and today I'm here to unveil the first ever clip of gameplay for this very exciting shooter MMO for PS3.

For those that don't know, Defiance is the first persistent online world that plays like a pixel perfect shooter. Unlike other shooter games where you can play co-op with 4 or 8 players at most, Defiance supports thousands of players playing together in a game that never ends.

And if that doesn't raise your eyebrows just a bit, the world of Defiance exists not only in the game, but in a TV series of the same name that will air on the Syfy channel. The game and show will change and evolve together, to create an entertainment experience unlike anything you've ever experienced.





We're glad to be able to take advantage of the power and features of the PS3 to help bring such a world to life.
