10Tons Ltd Announces King Oddball is Out Today on PlayStation Vita

50°
42w ago - 10Tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced that King Oddball is out today on PlayStation Vita with details below.

To quote: Hi, readers! 10tons is back this week with another PS Vita game - a unique and eccentric, skill-based puzzler called King Oddball.

As the title states, King Oddball is... unusual. Sure, the Angry Birds comparison comes to mind quickly, but King Oddball stands on its own handsomely.

Like Angry Birds, King Oddball is about clearing the level of enemies by squashing them with lobbed objects. And the way it's done is all about physics.

Unlike Angry Birds, King Oddball's levels fit in single screen, and there's (basically) only one kind of ammo to lob: rocks. And you don't get to throw them around any way you please, either.

Oh, no. The King automatically picks up the rocks and swings them back and forth by his tongue, and the player merely releases the rock by pressing X or tapping the screen. That's it.

It may sound easy, and it is... until it gets hard. It may also sound simple, and it is... until it gets complicated. The beauty of the gameplay mechanics lies in the fact that we've tightened the physics engine's precision screws as tight as they go.

Video: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Out Today on PlayStation 4

43w ago - Crystal Dynamics Community Manager Meagan Marie announced alongside a video trailer that the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is out today on PlayStation 4 with details below.

To quote: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is often declared a passion project at Crystal Dynamics, and in my opinion it shows. Lara's next-gen debut united three studios - leads from Crystal, longtime partner Nixxes, and Sleeping Dogs' United Front Games - to usher Tomb Raider into a new generation of gaming.

Definitive Edition pairs the vision and artistry of the original release with technological improvements that allowed for a truly definitive experience, and one that only hints at what the future holds for Lara.

We're really eager to get Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition into your hands, or the hands of your friends if they've yet to venture to Yamatai. Below you'll find a few words from the team thanking you for your support, and for spreading the word about Lara's first journey on next-gen.





"Thanks in advance everyone! Enjoy the improved Lara!"
Mike Abahazy, Senior Technical Artist

"I just wanted to say thanks to all the TR fans out there - old and new! It was great fun working on the Definitive Edition....

44w ago - Square Enix Associate Product Manager Mat Kishimoto announced that Lightning Returns with the new Final Fantasy XIII demo out today on PS3!

To quote: If you haven't been lucky enough to attend E3, San Diego Comic Con, Penny Arcade Expo, or the other shows that have hosted Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, we have good news. We're excited to announce that you can get hands-on with it in a playable demo that's dropping TODAY.

From now on, you don't have to take our word for it that this game is unlike anything Final Fantasy has ever done before, because it's finally time for you to see for yourself.

First off, downloading the demo scores you an exclusive piece of DLC that we're giving to you PlayStation fans - the Utsusemi Samurai garb - that you can use in the main game (it's not in the demo itself, so don't panic if you don't see it).

Again, this offer is exclusive to PlayStation owners too, so right off the bat you're getting something not everybody's going to get, JUST for downloading it. You can't tell, but I'm winking at you, especially at all you Final Fantasy XI Ninjas.

So what's in the demo itself? Of course, you're playing as Lightning, but you're now mysteriously tracking down her old friend Snow Villiers in the city of Yusnaan. As Lightning, it's...

To quote: OlliOlli is out today, exclusive to PlayStation Vita for $12.99. Those of you with a PlayStation Plus account will get a 20% discount on that price for the first week.

We're super chuffed (yes, chuffed, we're chuffed), we can't wait to get your feedback and see what scores you post, especially on the Daily Grind. We're giving you a five-day head start before Nikos, our senior coder, is allowed near a Vita and starts busting some serious high-scoring moves. You have been warned...

Once everyone has trained up enough and we start to see some ludicrous scores, we'll be running a competition to see who can get the highest score on a particular day of the Daily Grind. The lucky winner will receive one of our exclusive (There's literally only two of them!) OlliOlli Skateboard, Helmet, and MANDATORY First Aid Safety kit, but more about that soon!

We really hope you enjoy OlliOlli. We poured a lot of love, time, and devotion into this project, and we hope that shows!
