13w ago - Activision Community Manager Dan Amrich has confirmed today that Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution DLC hits PSN on February 28, 2013.
Below are is the full scoop, to quote: As the old saying goes, "the revolution will not be televised." Nonsense - it's not only on your TV screen, but it will be interactive, too.
Revolution, the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, arrives on PlayStation Network on February 28 - and there's more inside this collection than you may be expecting.
Revolution offers a heck of a lot of content for both multiplayer and Zombies fans. First up are the four multiplayer maps:
• Hydro: Located in Pakistan, this hydro-electric plant comes complete with a lethal spillway that floods with very little warning.
• Grind: Set in a skate park in Venice Beach (the birthplace of skateboarding!), quarter-pipes and curved surfaces drive players away from easy cover and into intense firefights.
• Downhill: A ski resort in the French Alps, this snowy map is complete with a moving gondola system that can both offer cover and crush you to death.
• Mirage: Located in China's Gobi Desert, this luxury resort has been ravaged by a sandstorm.
It's worth noting that Mirage is also the first Black Ops II...
13w ago - Quirkat Designer / Producer Candide Kirk has confirmed that Pro Foosball kicks off on PlayStation 3 this month.
To quote: A foosball table is one of those things that I've always wanted to own at home, but it's almost never practical enough to do so! Which is why we thought we'd bring the same level of fun and excitement right to your TV screens with the release of our Pro Foosball game on the PlayStation Network on 20th February, priced €3.99/£3.19!
Pro Foosball has been built to completely and realistically bring the foosball experience to your home. From accurate table physics to a competitive atmosphere with friends, we've included it all in the game, along with great environments to play in!
Pro Foosball allows you to compete across three modes of play. You can have a quick match with your friends in Kick About with up to four players in local multiplayer mode, challenge yourself to beat our skilled AI with three difficulty levels in Foos Championship, or have fun with our crazy table features such as no edges and bumpy surface in Foos Madness.
Pro Foosball is primarily designed to be played using the PlayStation Move controllers to mimic the real foosball table's rods.
14w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has shared a video trailer today announcing that Star Wars Pinball launches on PS3 and PS Vita this month.
To quote: Zen Studios has been making pinball games for nearly a decade now, and today is one of the most exciting pinball moments for our studio! We are extremely excited to announce that Star Wars is coming to Zen Pinball 2!
Zen Studios has been working closely with LucasArts to create an amazing collection of videogame pinball tables set in a galaxy far, far away!
The first pack of tables include Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Beyond these exciting tables, there are seven others in production as we speak, all to be revealed as 2013 unfolds.
Each table features a different iconic moment from the Star Wars universe, with interactive 3D characters and unique gameplay. If you have not yet downloaded Zen Pinball 2, it is pretty easy to do.
The free download will give you access to a great library of pinball content, where you can download demos for each table and pick which you'd like to buy. All content is cross-buy entitled on PS3 and PS Vita.
14w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King has confirmed that the Pinball Arcade Twilight Zone Table is out today.
To quote: This is Bobby King from FarSight Studios, the makers of the Pinball Arcade for PS3 and PS Vita. We are super excited to announce that today, thanks to our fans, we'll be releasing our re-creation of one of the greatest pinball tables ever - Twilight Zone!
With the help of the pinball legend Roger Sharpe, who did the original table's licensing deal for Williams/Bally, we were able to get the CBS-owned rights to the TV show. This deal was too expensive for us to make the numbers work, though.
We would have lost money with the number of sales we were projecting. But thanks to our players and pinball fans all around the world who chipped in through Kickstarter.com - we got the extra money that we needed to make the deal for the Twilight Zone IP!
This is such a great table. Personally, it's my second favorite to play in our game right behind Star Trek: The Next Generation (which we'll be releasing before the end of next month, but I'm getting ahead of myself).
Twilight Zone is awesome! It's an unbelievably deep gameplay experience. One of the features...
