115w ago - Producer and Studio Head Sian Yue Tan has announced today that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken hits PS3 on PSN this October, with details as follows:
In July I had the pleasure of announcing that our game, Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, was coming exclusively to PSN. We've gone and polished the heck out of it and will be shipping these fine feathered friends to you soon!
The game was in production for the PS3 for just over a year, but the Rocketbirds have been with me much longer. It started in the 80s with those anthropomorphic animal comics, such as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Using only birds gave the stories a satirical edge I could play with.
It wasn't until 2000, when I'd co-founded Ratloop Inc., and had decided to go back to complete my studies that I started to use the birds as a way to vent my creative energy.
I spent a week putting together a clip called "Pilot." It had sneaky penguins infiltrating a chicken base on what looked like the North Pole. It got good attention at the time, so the simple formula stuck with me.
Eventually I spent a week at an art event called Trustus. Artists had seen and liked "Pilot," that year a bunch of us created a movie (with Penguins and Chickens) during the week- it played non-stop,...
The totalitarian Penguin regime has oppressed Albatropolis for too long, but who can bring it down? Maybe Hardboiled Chicken? Oh Please... Of course, Hardboiled Chicken!
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken takes you on a cinematic platform adventure through Albatropolis as you hunt down the Penguin's corrupt leader, Putzki. Along the way, you'll have to kill many penguins, solve puzzles, incite revolution, and maybe possibly pilot a few jetpacks.
We've had a lot of fun putting Rocketbirds on the PS3. The available power has allowed us to vastly improve on the controls, visuals, and gameplay over the first game. For the visuals, you can look forward to expressive characters and rich, detailed environments. All running at 60fps and 720p.
There's even an optional stereoscopic 3D mode that also runs at the full 60fps, 720p. This may sound pretty pointless for...
133w ago - Shortly following the PS3 Firmware 3.61 update, reports came in that users running L.A. Noire may be causing PS3 consoles to be overheating.
Today Senior Director of Corporate Communications & Social Media Patrick Seybold has addressed concerns on the issue below with an official statement on behalf of Sony and Rockstar Games, as follows:
We have received a very small number of customer support questions about PS3s overheating or shutting down while playing L.A. Noire. At this time, Rockstar Games and Sony can confirm that neither L.A. Noire or firmware update 3.61 are causing the PS3 hardware to overheat.
We are both committed to working hard to find solutions to this and any issues that may arise. If you are experiencing any issues with L.A. Noire or your PS3 hardware, please contact technical support using any of the means provided below:
157w ago - Today Rockin' Android President Enrique Galvez has shared a video confirmation that Qlione Evolve will be morphing onto PSN this coming Tuesday for $6.99.
To quote: Qlione Evolve is more than what you'll see on its liquid surface.
First, the Qlione Evolve bundle includes two games; Qlione and Qlione 2, at an unbeatable price.
Second, the games' shoot-'em-up-like appearance gives way to something more akin to anti-shoot-'em-ups. Let's examine this, shall we?
In a laboratory, you might see whole other worlds under the lens of a microscope. In Qlione Evolve, you'll attempt to subsist in similar, but much more dangerous, ecosystems.
It's a microbe-eat-microbe world in the liquid spaces of Qlione Evolve. As a tiny inhabitant in this microscopic top-view 2D world, your humble attempts to evolve will be in constant jeopardy as you are attacked (even shot at!) by the other denizens.
Luckily, your strange little creature can spawn bombs and traps that push and pull the surrounding liquid environment, making for turbulent physics-based battles. This is the unprecedented...
164w ago - Atlus USA Project Lead Clayton Chan has made available a hilarious new Rock of Ages PS3 Renaissance trailer today, which is heading to PSN in Spring 2011.
To quote: In KT Tunstall's new single, she bemoans the fact that she didn't get to be several of the things she envisioned becoming, one of those things being a rock of ages.
Well, fret no more, KT! We've got the cure for those incredibly specific blues right here! In our 2011 title, Rock of Ages, you will finally get to be a Rock of Ages. Sisyphus's Rock of Ages, to be precise.
Maybe you two will grab a drink and reminisce sometime about that one time he was rolling you up a hill and then he slipped, and you rolled all the way back down...or the other time that happened.
The guys at ACE Team have put together this wonderfully lighthearted, action-packed trailer that highlights the rush you'll from careening into would-be obstacles at high speed.
Sure, your opponent's going to have some defenses set up, but fortune (and physics) generally favors the boulder. (We're never going to run out of rock puns, folks. I could talc all day about them.)
