180w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has announced that the Uncharted 2 'The Lab' PS3 Sniper Extermination gets underway this weekend.
To quote: If you aren't already planning on participating in the "The Lab" this weekend – or haven't in previous weekends – log in to UNCHARTED 2 multiplayer and check out the limited-time-only "The Lab" playlist in competitive matchmaking.
This weekend's episode of "The Lab" is Sniper Extermination. All players start with only Dragon Sniper rifles and there are no other weapons available on the map.
The goal of the game is similar to our Elimination gametype – once you or your opponent has been dispatched, you're out of the round until all opponents on either team are wiped out. The team with any or the most remaining players left alive wins that round.
Best of five rounds wins the entire match. No Boosters are active for Sniper Extermination, so high-level players and teams who have unlocked Situational Awareness won't be at an unfair advantage of those who haven't unlocked Evasion yet.
We'll be running Sniper Extermination on the following multiplayer maps:
• The Sanctuary
• The Train Wreck
• The Warzone The Plaza
• The Lost City
187w ago - UFG Game Designer William Ho has shared a video today dubbed ModNation Racers PS3 - Your Racing Career Begins Now!
To quote: Today, I'm going to reveal some details about the single-player Career Mode in ModNation Racers.
You are Tag, a young graffiti artist turned kart racer who enters the Mod Racing Championship (MRC for short). Tag starts off as a rookie in the Home Tour.
As he wins races, he unlocks more rewards and qualifies for higher-level tours that take him to exotic races all over ModNation. Along the way, you're pitted against the MRC's Elite Racers. Each Elite has his or her unique visual style and driving style suited to their respective home tracks.
The Career Mode is both simple and deep. It's simple in that you can blaze your way to the top of the MRC rankings by placing third or better in most races. We also have "Big Show" races – the finales for each Tour – that require you to finish in first place to qualify for the next Tour. Racking up top finishes also gets you lots of unlocks. You'll win plenty of parts, stickers, bodies, buildings, props and more to use in your custom creations.
But for more dedicated racers, we've also added...
