Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom Coming to PSN in January

50°
292w ago - Today Howard Lehr of TikGames announced that Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom is coming to the PlayStation Network this January.

To quote: A big 'hello' to all of the PlayStation blog readers out there! We at TikGames have been laboring away on this game for quite a while and it's a relief to finally be able to tell you all about the fantastic stories and artwork it contains.

You see, one of the keys things about Mahjong Tales: Ancient Wisdom for PS3 (available on PSN in early January for $9.99) is right there in the name. There are three modes to the game, each offering a unique experience.

In Ancient Tales mode, each piece of an old Chinese story is revealed when the player finishes a layout by matching the one pair of golden tiles on the board.





So, if you want to see the end of the story, you have to play your way through it and unlock the next episode. The stories are meant to add to the enjoyment of the classic game and pass along some ancient wisdom from one of the world's great cultures.

Now, keep in mind that there are hundreds of Chinese tales out there, all of which offer insights that we the players would value. However, many of them contain story elements that aren't...

Crash Commando Available Tomorrow on PSN - First Strategies

100°
292w ago - EPOS Game Studios CEO Olof Gustafsson shared the first tips and strategies for Crash Commando (available on PSN tomorrow) via PS Blog as follows:

We introduced Crash Commando to you last week, and now that the game is out tomorrow on PlayStation Network, we wanted to talk more about the game modes and give you some tips about how to rack up the kills.

The game modes:
DEATHMATCH and TEAM DEATHMATCH
Free-for-all frenzies or team-based skirmishes. Reach the target score first to win! In these modes, bots can be included offline as well as online.

MAP OBJECTIVES
Map Objectives is a game mode exclusive to multiplayer. It is based on having two teams - an attacking team and a defending team. The attackers have to meet set objectives while the defenders try to stop them.





A Map Objectives game is played in steps. At the beginning only some objectives are available, and by accomplishing them, new ones become available until they have all been met and the attackers win. Points are awarded to the attacking team depending on met objectives. The defenders can win by defending efficiently to force the time to run out, since the attackers have to meet objectives to gain extra time. This means that an efficient defense can...
 

Crash Commando for PlayStation 3 Coming Soon to PSN!

50°
293w ago - EPOS Game Studios CEO Olof Gustafsson shared the following today via PS Blog:

Hi all! This is Olof Gustafsson and Magnus Isaksson from EPOS Game Studios writing our first entry on the Blog, and we are going to introduce you all to Crash Commando for PS3, available soon on PlayStation Network!

It is a side-scrolling shooter that we think can and will satisfy any urge of frag-fests during Xmas and the cold months thereafter – killing friends and strangers in comic violence on PSN.

As this is the first game from us as a company – we know most of you have never heard about EPOS at all before. EPOS Game Studios is a small studio located in Sweden with a 5-man production team – with main occupations being split up between 2 programmers, 2 artists and a sound guy.

The idea:

The initial idea for Crash Commando was inspired by a lot of different titles over the last two decades. One game that springs to mind is JETPAC on the old Commodore VIC-20. The challenge was to create a fun game that clearly flirts with the retro genre, giving the players the opportunity to play in teams or against each other in real-time, incorporating the depth of a modern game while maintaining the retro core values.
