120w ago - PlayStation Network Community Manager Morgan Haro has made available a video today spotlighting the PSN games that will be featured at this year's PAX convention.
To quote: With PAX Prime 2011 kicking off tomorrow in Seattle, attendees will get to try out a slew of new and unreleased games.
If you're heading to PAX, keep your eyes open for opportunities to play upcoming PlayStation Network titles, some of which won't be released for months!
A selection of PlayStation Network PLAY titles will be playable at PAX including Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition, located at Capcom's spot at booth #3425. BloodRayne: Betrayal (releasing on PSN September 6th) shows off its gorgeously bloody 2D styling courtesy of Way Forward at booth #3652.
The same action-packed engine and dev team that made Just Cause famous is also in fine form with Renegade Ops - it's playable at the Sega booth (#3625) before its PSN release on September 13th.
To round out your PSN experience at PAX, the long-awaited Retro/Grade from 24 Caret Games will be playable at booth #6415. In a beautiful contrast to...
120w ago - Insomniac Games Community Intern Brandon Winfrey has posted up a video today from Gamescom 2011 spotlighting both Resistance 3 and Ratchet & Clank for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: I went to Germany once. I visited a castle, ate schnitzel - all things you should do as a guest of that fine country.
However, the most fun I had was when my exchange family set up a massive LAN party and we played games for 12 hours straight! It was then and there I realized that Germany is ground zero for videogames.
So for this year's Gamescom conference, the Insomniac crew hopped across the pond to show off our anticipated fall titles, including Resistance 3. By now, you've probably seen the beautiful new Olly Moss-inspired trailer, right? If you haven't, I'm giving you permission to stop reading this blog for a second to watch it.
The gaming media also experience a new section of Resistance 3 behind closed doors, so expect new previews to start rolling in soon. Fans on the show floor were able to play a single-player demo of the game so they can get a feel for the riveting atmospheric action Resistance 3 has in store.
Meanwhile, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One showed up with its guns blazing in a new trailer showcasing...
120w ago - Sony European Product Manager Erica Doddato has shared a video trailer today for the PlayStation Move party game Start the Party's sequel dubbed Save the World!
To quote: Following on from the 2010 Move-exclusive smash-hit Start The Party! comes a heroic sequel that will turn every party into a race to save the world.
Packed with over 20 fun filled mini-games, Start The Party! Save the World! puts you, your friends and family into the heart of the action and on the screen.
The evil Dr Terrible has gone berserk and is trying to destroy the world - use your PlayStation Move to stop him!
See how with the trailer below:
Get your face in the game and interact with some wacky objects that will appear straight into your living room: save stranded divers, defuse bombs before they explode, splat shoals of mutant piranhas, do battle with dinosaurs and zap alien invaders out of the sky.
As you can see, they are pretty dangerous missions - but no need to worry: you can always ask your friends and family to help out.
Every mini-game can be enjoyed in two types of multi-player mode: pass the controller to get your friends into the action or use both a motion controller...
Currently there is some green stuff that falls down and you can rotate the world to make it fall in a different direction and in doing so you can get the green stuff to navigate the world. There is a built in level editor.
It is just a toy at the moment and a roughly constructed one at that. I will probably do a bit more work on it and make it into a game but I don't know when. I'm not really considering it a very high priority. If you think it's interesting and want to see it improved upon sooner rather then later then let me know.
