311w ago - Today Keita Takahashi of Namco Bandai Games describes the type of game Noby Noby Boy (releasing on PSN this Thursday, February 19) is. To quote:

Basically players can control and stretch Boy, the main character of the game. As players stretch Boy, the lengths to which he grows are uploaded to a persistent character known as Girl, who grows at the same rate as the combined length of all the players in the world.

Girl starts at Earth and expands around the solar system. When Girl reaches a new milestone in the solar system, new areas are unlocked as playable stages for everyone around the world.

One big question most people have asked is, "Why did you want to make such a game?" Seriously, I don't know. When I figure it out, I'll share it on this blog. In the meantime, please take a moment to watch this video.





Well, that's the best that I can do to explain the game, but I know people will still go, "Hmm..."

311w ago - MotorStorm: Pacific Rift Game Director Nigel Kershaw sent word of the new demo that made it's way to PSN today:

MotorStorm: Pacific Rift has been out for a couple of months now, and we've been rabidly beavering away on producing a pile of downloadable content to give you some new gameplay to get you teeth into.

But for you unfortunates who have yet to taste the thrill of destroying a tropical paradise with a bevvy of dirt racing machines, we've also put together a brand new demo of the game, which should be available to download from the PlayStation Store later today.

Like the previous demo we are offering you both a single player and a split screen multiplayer race, but this time we let the veterans of MotorStorm.com choose their favorite track, Razorback.

With its thick jungle, colossal waterfalls, dank caves and a multitude of routes, the Razorback is an ideal taster of the off road thrills and spills MotorStorm: Pacific Rift has to offer, so grab it and give it a whirl.

There are few more entertaining things you can do with your pants on.
