Video: King Oddball Ends The World Launches on PS Vita Today

50°
32w ago - 10tons PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi shared a fresh video announcing that King Oddball Ends The World launches on PS Vita today.

To quote: Greetings from still miraculously snowless Finland, PlayStation Blog readers! This week 10tons is back with another game to PS Vita, and what a game it is.

I'm quite frankly not sure what to say about King Oddball. Or, King Oddball Ends the World, as the full name goes in all its glory. The game is a bit peculiar, you see. You're probably better off trying the free trial.

While it's technically true that King Oddball falls in the same physics-based puzzle category as Angry Birds, the fruitfulness of the comparison doesn't last long. Sure, you lob objects at things in both games, but that's largely as far as the similarities go.





First of all, King Oddball is a bit weird. What the heck the titular main character even is? What is he a king of? Why is his tongue so absurdly long and stretchy? Why is he in such a foul mood? Your guess is as good as mine. All I know is the eccentric art style and accordion-heavy soundtrack fit the game perfectly.

Gameplay-wise, and this is probably the part everyone is the most interested in, King Oddball is equally uncommon:...
 

PlayStation Plus: Urban Trial Freestyle Free on PS Vita for Members

50°
32w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced that Urban Trial Freestyle is free on PS Vita for Members as part of this weeks PlayStation Plus updates below.

To quote: It's officially 2014, and if you checked out our preview post and video last month you'll know that means mega awesome titles are coming soon! Tomorrow our Plus members will be able to download both Don't Starve on PlayStation 4 and DMC Devil May Cry on PlayStation 3.

Don't Starve is deceptively cute, so don't be fooled, this is a hardcore survival simulator. You (as a Gentleman Scientist) will need to gather, hunt and build in order to stay alive in this mysterious land.

DmC Devil May Cry refreshes the story of Dante and gives him a bit of a makeover, but the combat is still as action-packed as you'd expect from a DMC title. Dante still packs his pistols Ebony & Ivory as well as his blade Rebellion, and you'll have to switch back and forth from Angel and Demon mode in order to rack up your massive combos.

You can download Don't Starve and DmC Devil May Cry as well as take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 1/7.

33w ago - Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced today that Urban Trial Freestyle is free on PS Vita for Plus Members as part of this weeks PlayStation Plus content updates.

To quote: Let's face it, you probably have some time to kill before New Year's Eve. Starting tomorrow Urban Trial Freestyle is free for PlayStation Plus members, so download it on your PS Vita before heading out to celebrate.

If you find yourself in a boring conversation, excuse yourself to the restroom and mess around with some bike trials where you'll attempt to pull off tricks like backflips, ollies and 360s. For those with a more competitive streak, you can challenge other riders with Ghost Mode.

As addictive as Urban Trial Freestyle is, try not to spend the entire party in the bathroom. That can give the wrong impression.

You can download Urban Trial Freestyle and take advantage of all these PS Plus discounts after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 12/31.

10tons Ltd Announces Sparkle on PlayStation Vita is Out Today

35w ago - Today 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced that Sparkle on PlayStation Vita is officially released!

To quote: Hello, readers! Greetings from the magical winter wonderland* of Finland.

I'm Jaakko from multiplatform game developer [Register or Login to view links]. Even though we've been around for ten years now, we're genuinely excited to make our PS Vita debut this week.

The game we've chosen to be the spearhead of our entry to PS Vita is Sparkle. It's a marble shooter puzzle game, and probably the most popular game we've ever made.

The game is actually out on PS Vita in Europe already, and we've received a whole lot of positive reviews and feedback on it. Many noted that this particular subgenre of match-three is extremely underrepresented on PS Vita. Not anymore!

What sets Sparkle apart from many marble shooters are the big and brash power-ups, considerable level of challenge, and the slightly dark, mysterious theme. This type of game fits mobile gaming really well, and PS Vita is the ultimate device to play it on. Playing Sparkle with the touchscreen is fast and accurate, but if you prefer thumbstick controls, they're there as well.

We're also really happy it's possible to offer free trials of games on PS Vita. We realize...
