Video: Sucker Punch: InFamous Second Son PS4 Patch Out Tomorrow

50°
32w ago - Today Brian Fleming of Sucker Punch Productions announced that their InFamous Second Son PS4 patch will be out tomorrow alongside a PlayStation 4 video trailer below.

To quote: I have some good news for you. We've made great progress on the inFAMOUS Second Son patch on PS4 I promised you a couple weeks back. In fact, we expect to publish it on PSN tomorrow, April 17th.

Now first, let me update you on the specifics I promised, and then toss in a few extra goodies that we managed to squeeze in when nobody was looking. First - addressing one of the top two requests we've gotten - you'll be able to disable the HUD, and once you've finished the game you'll be able to adjust the time of day as you like.

We also promised, and have included, an option to cap the game frame rate at 30 FPS if you prefer playing this way. To set expectations for you all: this is a frame rate cap - not a lock. It won't eliminate the rare instance of a dropped frame during gameplay.





But that's all stuff you expected. Let's talk about a few surprises, saving the best for last:

• A handful of localization text changes, and a couple of fixes for rare crashes in the game (Thanks to all of you who uploaded reports on those,...
 

Video: 10Tons Ltd Announces King Oddball is Out Tomorrow on PS4

33w ago - 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi shared a video below today announcing that King Oddball is out tomorrow on PS4.

To quote: Hello readers - exciting times! It's been pretty frantic bringing King Oddball over to PS4 from PS Vita, but we're really happy to have it as our first PS4 release.

We can't wait to see how the game is received on the big screen.

I've covered the game pretty well on Playstation.Blog in earlier posts, so I'll shed some light on the various special level sets and how they came to be.

First, a quick recap: King Oddball is a skill-based, physics puzzler, where your goal is to clear the screen of enemies with three throwable rocks. So far so ordinary, but in King Oddball, you don't get to fling the rocks any way you please.





The King swings a rock back and forth like a pendulum, and the rock is released when you hit X. Gravity takes over, and you hit your target if your timing was good.

Accurate timing takes you only so far though, because soon enough you need to be strategizing about where the rock will bounce after the first, second, and even third impact. Tip: it's often good to start from the topmost targets, as the rock will fall down eventually,...
