292w ago - Hi everyone! I'm Aymeric Evennou, also known as Ubi_Wuzzi, Community Developer on HAZE. I'm here to give you updates on the game and get your questions answered by the developers.
Basically, if you want official answers from the team behind HAZE, ask your question and check out our regular entries on the PSB!
For today, my introduction for the first post will be nicely handled by this video, featuring Rob Yescombe, screenwriter on HAZE:
You got it, I wanted to give you details on the demo of HAZE hitting the PlayStation Network this Thursday. Some of you may know it, this demo will take you straight to the opening level, called Salva region.
You will then have a first taste of the game by going through the entire first level, with its lush and bright jungle and its suitable-for-massive-assaults environment.
If that is not enough, the demo will also give you a taste of not only the single-player campaign in HAZE, but will allow UP TO FOUR-PLAYERS, drop-in drop-out co-op play online and LAN. Bringing 4 friends to massive carnage is always fun and has never been so easy!
Please take note that the voice chat won't be activated by default so, for a better experience, before starting or joining a co-op game...
292w ago - Paul Hollywood, creative director at Evolution, said at Sony's PlayStation Day event that a demo for upcoming MotorStorm Pacific Rift is planned.
He also said the game will "be locked at 30 frames-per-second in 720p", something the pre-alpha demo version lacked at the event.
"Yes, there'll be a downloadable demo on the PSN Store before launch," said Evolution's Hollywood. "Autumn 2008 is when we're coming out. I don't know the date or what we're going to do with the demo - that'll be forthcoming."
MotorStorm is an arcade style racer so a stable frame rate is a must for the fast paced action. With the increase in the number of tracks and interaction of the environments its even more crucial to avoid drops.
292w ago - Sierra has announced today that the demo for the Playstation3 version will be available on May 8th. The Xbox 360 version has already hit the marketplace and is currently available for donwnload.
The Bourne Conspiracy demo will feature:
- A look into how The Bourne Conspiracy combines original missions with memorable film moments to plunge players into the role of both trained Treadstone assassin and a malfunctioning government weapon on the run
- Brutal hand-to-hand combat choreographed by the films' fight coordinator and stunt legend Jeff Imada, recreating Bourne's signature combat style and ability to weaponize everyday objects in his environment
- Shooting using cover, wallwork, and use of destructible objects to distract and destroy enemies, along with a unique 'expert kill' shooting takedown system
- Seamless movement between hand-to-hand combat and gunplay, combined with unique 'escape & evade' game play where Bourne must escape deadly situations, all framed by relentless pace and camera techniques inspired by the cinematography of the films
- A taste of Bourne-style high speed pursuit, with a re-imagining of the escape from Paris sequence through a thrill-a-minute, arcade-racing inspired police car chase
292w ago - An Insomniac Games employee, jstevenson, has written in the NeoGAF boards and confirmed that a Resistance 2 demo will be present during the Sony PlayStation day on May 6, a few days from now.
