57w ago - Happion Laboratories Chief Scientist Jamie Fristrom has announced that PlayStation Mobile title Sixty Second Shooter Deluxe lands on PSN today!
To quote: Many years ago I quit a pretty sweet job as creative director on Activision's Spider-Man series in the middle of development on Spider-Man 3.
Why did I do such a crazy thing? I'd love to say it was because of the screenplay, but no - a big part of the reason was that even though I had the highfalutin' title "creative director" I didn't feel like it was my game.
Somehow, not enough of my own creative input and ideas were making it into the thing, and I thought that at a small company I could start making games I could call my own again.
And I've been getting my butt kicked ever since! Every mistake you can make as an indie developer... I've probably made it twice. We did okay with Schizoid, which made it into the PAX 10, but didn't bring in enough money to make the next game, and although we managed to hold on for a while longer, doing some contract work here and there, we eventually had to call it quits.
My partner went and got a real job and I was about to as well, but then I heard that the Chrome web browser had...
58w ago - Sony's Plus Content Manager Chris Howe of the PlayStation Store has announced today that Crysis 2 is landing on PlayStation Plus in November!
Below are the details, to quote: We here at Sony Computer Entertainment are very excited to announce that the headline title for the PlayStation Plus service from 7th November is... Crysis 2!
Originally released in March 2011, the second installment in the multi award-winning Crysis series is a visually stunning, high-concept FPS with a gripping storyline written by sci-fi veteran Richard Morgan.
Set in the year 2023, three years after the events of Crysis, you'll find yourself in control of a Force Recon Marine named "Alcatraz", who gains ownership of the Nanosuit 2.0 from Army Delta Force officer Laurence "Prophet" Barnes, who many of you will remember from Crysis.
The violent alien race from the original game has returned, with a full invasion force bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind. In New York, the invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city's inhabitants.
The city's infrastructure is in ruins, while its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City like you've never seen it before.
60w ago - Borderlands 2 Game Designer Jonathan Hemingway has shared details today on the Mechromancer and Captain Scarlett DLC which arrives on PSN this Tuesday.
To quote: Hey guys, Jonathan from Gearbox here! I was walking around the office the other day and wouldn't you know it – Sir Hammerlock came up to me and handed me a letter and asked if I could share it with you. Here's what he had to say:
Dear Vault Hunters,
I'm well aware of your never-ending thirst for things to shoot and or loot, and I'm positively thrilled to announce some news nestled firmly in that avenue. Not one, but TWO pieces of downloadable content (or "DLC," for the acronym-fond amongst you) for Borderlands 2 will soon be available for your procurement.
Have you ever dreamt about romancing a mech? If so, then you have been greatly misinformed about the new character class DLC. You shall receive the pleasure of playing as Gaige the Mechromancer (she's a mechro-mancer, rather than a mech-romancer, you see - the importance of syllabic emphases can seldom be understated), a spectacularly brilliant prodigy of a girl who uses her robotic friend to slash, punch, and otherwise eviscerate the many fearsome foes of Pandora.
She can also manipulate electricity by invoking the power of science. I also hear...
64w ago - Gearbox Software Community Manager Chris Faylor has announced today that Borderlands 2: Return to Pandora will be available on both Blu-ray and PSN beginning tomorrow!
To quote: Hey Vault Hunters, the wait is nearly over! You've seen all the gameplay videos, you've read all the previews, you've possibly even played our demo at PAX, now it's time for you to finally get your hands on Borderlands 2 for PlayStation 3 when it hits store shelves everywhere and PlayStation Network in North America Tuesday, September 18th!
The development team at Gearbox Software has worked tirelessly over the last few years to make this game live up to the mantra "bigger, better, and more badass," and we're all so excited for you to experience the shooting and looting mayhem for yourself.
Borderlands 2 has 870 bazillion guns! According to our team's math wiz, that's approximately 800 bazillion more guns than the 17,750,000 that the Guinness Book of World Records said was in the first game!
From everyone at Gearbox Software and 2K Games, we'd like to thank you for your support, enthusiasm and encouragement while we developed this game. It's been a wild ride and this Tuesday the mayhem begins...
64w ago - Take Two Europe Digital Sales Manager Ross McGrath has announced today that Borderlands 2 is getting a simultaneous PSN digital release.
To quote: By now you'll probably be aware that Borderlands 2 is just one short week from release. That means it'll soon be time for you and up to three friends to return to Pandora and wreak some havoc on Handsome Jack and his nefarious cohorts.
If you want to be among the first to return to the wastes and start your campaign against the Hyperion Corporation then there's still time to head over to PlayStation Store and pre-order ahead of the release on 21st September - the game will be launching at the same time on PSN as in retail stores.
"But why? Tell us why, oh why we should pre-order!" I hear you all shout. Probably.
To become a Borderlands 2 Premiere Club member of course! Not only will becoming a Premiere Club member give you a warm and fuzzy feeling inside, but also conveys the following benefits:
• A brand new character class!
• Come 16th October, Gaige the Mechromancer will be joining Axton, Maya, Salvador and Zer0 on Pandora, bringing a new style of play - commanding a mech named D374-TP (that's Deathtrap to you). Gaige will be available absolutely free to all Premiere Club members once...
