132w ago - Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some video footage from BulletStorm's Cliff Bleszinski, who explains Co-Op Anarchy Mode and his favorite Kill Combo.
To quote: "Kill with skill" sums up BulletStorm's M.O. admirably. But now that the ultra-violent PS3 shooter is nearing its February 22nd release date, long-awaited details are finally coming to light.
Details including the game's multiplayer mode, which has remained shrouded in mystery since the game's unveiling. While BulletStorm won't include Versus, it will feature a separate four-player Anarchy mode designed for co-op play.
While Anarchy may draw instant comparisons to the co-op modes found in other online shooters, Epic Games Design Director Cliff Bleszinski pointed out that Anarchy is "not like a Nazi Zombies where you just have to survive."
Watch the video above to learn more about Anarchy's unique score-based progression system, CliffyB's all-time favorite kill combo in BulletStorm, why BulletStorm on the PS3 will "very much take advantage of what the PS3 is capable of," and why he's a fan of Blu-ray's storage capabilities.
Based on my hands-on time with BulletStorm, the game is a radically different...
132w ago - Update: According to several members (including jensen76, evilsperm, and sk group) when you downgrade a PS3 with the Modified 3.41 PUP (below), it currently cripples the Blu-ray player functionality. Some additional PS3 Blu-ray fix updates are outlined HERE, however, a more stable solution is still being worked on.
To quote from garyopa on one work-around: "I was able to restore one machine I had, by copying over all the files I had in the /dev_flash2 and /dev_flash3 back to the HDD, that I had saved before when it was on v3.41"
Forum member p666 also has expanded on the PS3 Blu-ray fix a bit HERE...
132w ago - Sony PlayStation Network Product Manager James Thorpe has unveiled the treats for PlayStation Plus subscribers this week, which include Dead Nation and Hustle Kings avatars and access to the LBP2 PS3 Open Beta.
To quote: Hi Guys, it's already time to give you the first installment of your festive December treats. So here goes...
You may have seen Alex's post last month about LittleBigPlanet 2 and the amazing new game coming to PSN on 15 December: Sack Boy's Prehistoric Moves.
We thought you guys might like this so we are giving it to you completely free and one week before everyone else on PSN. New, free and early!
The second treat today is also LBP2 related. We were gutted we couldn't give you the first LBP2 beta exclusively but to hopefully make up for it a little, we have managed to persuade the guys to extend the LBP2 beta for you Plus members.
The numbers are unfortunately limited but if you have been chosen then you should have already received an email and are hopefully playing, creating and sharing as we speak.
Another treat for this month is something you have been asking for: There are two Dead Nation Avatars now available for download. Check out your exclusive 'Hero' and 'Heroine' avatars today.
