Video: Sony Game Creator Reveals the Secrets of PSN's Dyad

50°
131w ago - Today Sony game creator Shawn McGrath has revealed the secrets of PSN's Dyad to fans as part of a new video trailer below.

To quote: Last week in New York City I was fortunate enough to show off Dyad, the almost-ready-done-really-soon-I-promise game coming to PSN for PS3. During our NYC showcase, the crew was kind enough to stop by and conduct a quick Q&A and gameplay session, and you can watch the results in this new original video.

Each of the game's 27 different levels touch upon a variety of mechanics and goals: forming long combos, racing, surviving as long as possible, hitting certain top speeds and more.

And the game's 26 special Trophy levels have challenging alternate goals, whether it's playing just by using sound or collecting objects as quickly as possible.

Since each level has a corresponding leaderboard to track online rankings, Dyad boasts a huge number of leaderboards - 52 in all, each requiring a unique set of skills to master.





I also wanted to mention that David Kanaga did the game's interactive music. Here's his [Register or Login to view links], and you can hear more of his interactive music [Register or Login to view links].

Welcome to the PS3 Demo of Syndicate, Coming to PSN Today

142w ago - Today Co-Op Producer Andreas Gschwari has introduced the PS3 demo of Syndicate, which arrives on PlayStation Network today!

To quote: [Register or Login to view links], as you probably know by now, is an FPS set in the classic universe first established by Bullfrog in 1993.

We have taken all the great story elements from the original game - the setting, the mood, the agents and above all the chips - and transferred into a much faster-paced and visceral game. Syndicate is not just your average FPS, though.

We did this by creating a gameplay mechanic called "Breaching," which effectively simulates an agent using his embedded military-grade DART 6 chip to interact with other chips in the world - whether they are located inside objects or human beings.

But it's not all about the chips. No FPS can do without providing the player with an arsenal of bad-ass weapons, and we had access to some excellent examples to work with from the original games, fortified with some ideas of our own.

You will find the usual suspects like sniper rifles, assault rifles and pistols, although you shouldn't expect them to be anything like you are used to from contemporary shooters. Some of the upgrades you are able to get will transform these seemingly standard weapons...
