73w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has announced today that Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault is adding a Tower-Defense Twist for PSN fans!
To quote: Hey everyone, James from Insomniac Games here. Our team of veteran Insomniacs in North Carolina has been hard at work developing Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, and today I'm happy to share new details surrounding Ratchet & Clank's latest PSN adventure.
Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault heads back to the classic camera, weapons and third-person Ratchet gameplay that the series is known for, while adding a new tower defense element that will have you building and defending a base against invasions using your ultimate Ratchet & Clank arsenal.
This new twist, added to the classic Ratchet gameplay, brings a whole new level of strategy and decision-making to Full Frontal Assault. You'll want to make sure your Hoverboots are laced up and ready as you race to defeat your enemy while keeping your base secure. Wait, Hoverboots don't have laces...
In Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, our heroes face a new nemesis - one who has a nasty surprise planned for Captain Qwark.
You'll be able to choose between playing as Ratchet, Clank, or Captain...
76w ago - Sony Content Producer Simon Bramble interviewed Eric Webb of Id Software today, who discussed Doom 3: BFG Edition - the full experience on the PS3 entertainment system!
Below are the details, to quote: Doom 3: BFG Edition is set to launch on PS3 in October of 2012, bringing with it the first two games in the iconic series.
It means you'll be able to play the entire Doom series on PS3 for the first time and see for yourself why many consider these games to be some of the most influential shooters of all time.
We caught up with Eric Webb, producer from game developer id Software, at E3 2012 to talk about how the game has been buffed up for PS3.
PlayStation.Blog: How do you think all three games stand up today on PS3?
Eric Webb, Producer, Doom 3: BFG Edition: I think they all stand up really well. One of the first things we did when we first started work on it was pay attention to how the controls feel.
There's something about the DualShock 3 controller and its dual analog sticks that feels really good when you're holding it in a game like this. It gives it a different life and almost makes it an entirely new experience. So I think it's really cool on PS3.
