Hustle Kings - The King of Pool Games for PlayStation 3

50°
262w ago - Today the Technology Director for VooFoo Studios Mark Williams has introduced Hustle Kings for PSN and PS3.

To quote: We really wanted to make sure Hustle Kings was something special right from the start, and the response from the unveiling at E3 has exceeded all of our initial expectations.

Everyone who has seen and played Hustle Kings so far has been incredibly impressed, and one of the things that many people have commented on is how brilliantly the AI plays.

We have such a comprehensive selection of online and multiplayer game modes in Hustle Kings, I was keen to ensure that our single player career campaign was just as challenging and enjoyable.

I initially sat down and played a lot of other pool and snooker games, and it really struck me as to how tiresome and predictable the AI generally was. I found myself wanting to skip past the shots played by my computer controlled opponent as they just weren't fun to watch. Hustle Kings needed something different, I thought, we needed to make our AI both challenging and entertaining.


Pool, and snooker probably even more so, are not games simply about potting balls. When lining up to pot a ball, you ideally want to leave the cue ball in a position that makes your next shot easier. Conversely, if you're...
 

The King of Fighters XII Revives the Lost Art of 2D Fighting on PS3

50°
270w ago - Today [Register or Login to view links]'s Shane Bettenhausen has posted on the PlayStation Blog today news that The King of Fighters XII is due out this summer for the PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: Dedicated KOF fans have been patiently waiting for years to get their hands on a new installment in this legendary franchise. Since its inception 15 years ago, The King of Fighters has served as a ferocious franchise mash-up, gathering characters from classic series such as Fatal Fury, Art of Fighting, and Ikari Warriors for three-on-three street fighting action.

For years, fans could depend on KOF to deliver a new yearly update sporting a few minor tweaks and new playable characters, but the advent of the HD era demanded a fresh start. KOF XII is precisely that–a total reboot and rebirth that embraces the past while looking towards the future.

The developers at SNK PLAYMORE have worked hard to deliver a next-gen King of Fighters sequel that honors the series' tradition of hand-drawn 2D art and animation while upping the ante with gameplay refinements and fierce online play.

Creating the massive amount of hand-drawn art required to fluidly animate HD-quality character sprites required a small army of artists sketching their hearts out–SNK...
 

King of Fighters XII Getting DLC, Console-specific Modes

50°
271w ago - It looks like SNK is already preparing to outfit King of Fighters XII with DLC.

To quote: The upcoming fighting game will have additional purchased content available on the Xbox Live Marketplace (as uncovered by [Register or Login to view links]) and, presumably, on PSN as well.

What that content is exactly, we don't know just yet; however, we assume this means more costumes and game modes a la Street Fighter IV. Maybe it means more characters ... like all the ones missing from the roster screen (below).

In addition to DLC, KoF XII has console-specific online modes. The PS3 version features a "Clan" mode which is not found on the 360 version (check out the image above); however, the 360 version has a "Ranked Match" option while the PS3 version does not. Hmm ... you don't think SNK would charge for these modes as paid DLC now, would it?
