Mass Effect 3: Leviathan PS3 DLC Expands Reaper Mythology

100°
107w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has confirmed that the Mass Effect 3: Leviathan PS3 DLC expansion Reaper Mythology is incoming this summer.

To quote: "Shepard's story came to a close at the end of the game," BioWare Producer Mike Gamble told the crowd at EA's Summer Showcase last week.

"But there are more stories we want to tell in the Mass Effect universe." Leviathan is Mass Effect 3's first story-focused DLC, and in addition to introducing new characters, weapons, and combat challenges it promises to expand on what we know (and what we don't) about the most feared beings in the universe - the Reapers.

Set during ME3's harrowing Reaper invasion, the expansion tasks Commander Shepard with tracking down an elusive entity that, according to legend, may wield the power to defeat a Reaper.

Trouble is, nobody's actually seen it. The story begins with an email directing you to the Citadel labs and one Dr. Bryson, director of the elite Task Force Aurora research group that investigates long-shot methods for halting the Reapers.

The Protheans, it seems, were the first to suspect the Leviathan's existence after they discovered a Reaper corpse centuries ago. This all bodes well for Shepard's quest, but just as Bryson begins to pass along the key information,...

Video: PS Vita Sound Shapes: Jon Mak Demystifies Music Creation

250°
161w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has posted up a video today featuring Jonathan Mak demystifying music creation in Sound Shapes for the upcoming PS Vita handheld console.

To quote: Last week I finally had a chance to go hands-on with Sound Shapes, the upcoming PS Vita platformer music studio that left critics reeling in its E3 debut.

Coached by co-designer and Everyday Shooter creator [Register or Login to view links] and co-designer [Register or Login to view links], I discovered a deceptively simple platformer that gave me the tools to build a series of game levels - and a corresponding song - in seconds flat.

Sound Shapes' level creation and music composition are inseparable. As you use the PS Vita's front touchscreen to place objects - platforms, lasers, obstacles - that you'll interact with during gameplay, you're simultaneously laying down beats and musical cues that will evolve into a full song when you play.

During the creation process, you'll use PS Vita's rear touch panel to resize platforms and objects to further tweak your level's gameplay or musical style. Where you go from there is entirely up to you: the final version of Sound Shapes will enable you to upload and share your creation via PSN...

Jonathan Blow Shares Some Concept Art From The Witness

50°
234w ago - Jonathan Blow, game developer of the critically acclaimed game 'Braid', has shared with us through his blog that he's created a new Web site and blog for his next game called The Witness.

You can start following the blog [Register or Login to view links]. The first information he shared through his blog are some wonderful concept art pictures, but it doesn't say much yet about the game.. Don't forget to read the caption of each image!

The main Web site also contains the following poem:

"Through many births,
I have wondered on and on,
Searching for, but never finding,
The builder of this house.
To be born again and again, is suffering.

House-builder, you are seen!
You will not build a house again!
All the rafters are broken,
The ridgepole destroyed;
The mind, gone to the Unconstructed,
Has reached the end of craving!"

If anyone can make any sense of it, feel free to comment!
