34w ago - Celsius Game Studios Founder Colin Walsh announced today alongside a video that Drifter is coming to PS4 and PS Vita platforms with details below.

To quote: While growing up I was always fascinated by space exploration and I was especially fond of the many video games set in space such as Frontier, Starflight, and Privateer.

In fact, it's long been a dream of mine to take all of what I enjoyed about those sorts of games and try and create my own game in the genre. [Register or Login to view links] is that game, and now I'm happy to say that another dream of mine is being fulfilled now that Drifter is coming to PS4 and PS Vita.

A Massive Galaxy To Explore

Drifter is an open-world, sandbox, space trading game with a procedurally-generated galaxy 100,000 light years across, made up of tens of thousands of star systems to explore and features an original soundtrack by composer Danny Baranowsky.

In the game you take on the role of a spaceship captain attempting to eke out a living among the stars by trading goods between star systems, hunting pirates for bounties, mining asteroids for valuable ore, or even becoming a pirate yourself.

43w ago - Strange Loop Games Studio Head John Krajewski posted up a video today announcing that Liquid Puzzle Game Vessel is coming to PS3 on March 11th, 2014.

To quote: Vessel will be coming to console exclusively for PS3 on March 11th!

To celebrate this launch, we've created a limited edition of Vessel Turbines, a desk toy that gives you your very own "Fluro" in a bottle. Each bottle contains a large blob of Ferrofluid, a magnetic liquid that comes to life when you apply a magnet - just like the creatures of Vessel.

You can buy it on our [Register or Login to view links] and get a key for Vessel on PS3.

In the game Vessel, you take the role of inventor Arkwright who has created living machines made out of liquid (called "Fluros" that are wreaking havoc around the world. You set out to solve the Fluro problem and unravel the mystery of what they're becoming.

Vessel takes a unique approach in gaming by creating all the creatures out of liquid. Their bodies are composed of thousands of physically simulated fluid particles. This means that they're capable of things that few other creatures in a video game are, like melting, reforming into new shapes, flowing through barriers, regrowing lost limbs, chemically...

The world has fallen under the tyrannical rule of Grand Master Meio.

Video: Strategy Game Frozen Synapse Tactics Evolving on PS Vita

45w ago - Below is a video from Double 11 Design Manager Gareth Wright on how acclaimed strategy game Frozen Synapse Tactics is evolving on PS Vita.

To quote: For those new to Frozen Synapse Tactics, it's an evolution of the acclaimed, turn-based, PC strategy game by Mode 7. Players control an elite strike team of futuristic soldiers, from shotgunners and snipers to grenadiers and machine-gunners.

Matches take place on procedurally generated, virtual environments, or players can create their own, choosing the amount of rooms, walls, windows, cover and so forth in the creation area. All battlegrounds are fully-destructible.

Players plot paths and issue orders for their units, aiming to predict their opponent's strategies or complete the match objectives. Both teams commit their plans for each turn, we call this 'Priming', and the outcome of that turn is then played out, resulting in awesome fire-fights, exploding walls and cinematic kill cams.

Our real design challenge for Vita was to figure out how we would engineer away from a complex menu driven PC experience to an intuitive design that still maintains the immediacy of the original game. Intuitive for us meant that it should appeal to a much wider audience but at its core should satisfy modern day die-hard tactical shooter fans.

46w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer shared a PlayStation Plus February 2014 video game preview below today, as follows:

Typically when you think of February, your mind goes to chocolates, flowers, and other lovey-dovey things. So we thought we'd celebrate this sappy month by scaring the bejesus out of you with Outlast on PS4.

We also have some great single-player PS3 experiences, including Metro: Last Light, a first-person shooter with an interesting take on morality, and Remember Me, a third-person action adventure where you'll take down an evil corporation by beating lots of people up with your own unique combos and messing with people's memories.

If you have a significant other, you might be able to rope him or her into some bank-robbing action with Payday 2 on PS3. After all, everyone likes stealing stuff. I mean, uh nevermind.

Finally, two PS Vita titles are joining the Instant Game Collection: Street Fighter X Tekken and ModNation Racers: Road Trip. Both include functionality with their respective PS3 versions. Fight against your friends in Street Fighter X Tekken no matter what platform they have, or download your previously made PS3 creations and use them in ModNation Racers: Road Trip.
