Video: Renegade Ops PS3 Game Modes Trailer, Meet The Team

50°
162w ago - Today Sega Digital Campaigns Manager Mike Kebby has made available a new Renegade Ops PS3 game modes trailer video alongside details on the team, as follows:

I'm here today to give you the low-down on the game, introduce the team that you'll becoming familiar with, and basically let you know just how damn awesome the whole thing is!

Before I get into the narrative meat, I'll run you through the core of the game; it's a top-down twin-stick shooter, which sees you take control of one of four character specific vehicles.

Each vehicle comes with its own set of attributes and specific play-style, all of which hinges around the special ability of each character. This is all focused around one thrilling campaign that can be tackled in single-player, two-player split-screen, and four player co-operative/competitive (co-opertition as we like to call it) modes.

You'll be working on levelling up your character of choice, unlocking various upgrades, and ultimately hitting the highest rank and ensure your place at the top of the online leader boards.

With the world cowering to the tyrannical madman that is Inferno, and with his impending global dominance on the horizon, it's through a self-imposed purpose to rid the globe of this menace that we join the Renegades....
 

Starhawk on PlayStation 3 Q&A: Building Better Worlds

100°
162w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a Starhawk PlayStation 3 Q&A interview today entitled Building Better Worlds for fans.

To quote: Starhawk is a rare beast - a big-budget shooter with a story to tell. That tale centers squarely on Emmett Graves, a reluctant protagonist saddled with some serious baggage.

I spoke with Harvard Bonin, Sony Santa Monica Studios' Senior Producer on Starhawk, to try and get a grip on what makes Emmett Graves tick.

PSB: A gigantic multiplayer shooter that includes RTS elements has been seen as something of a gaming Holy Grail. Which part did you conceptualize first – shooter, or RTS?

Harvard Bonin, Senior producer, Sony Santa Monica Studios: At first, we just wanted to do a sequel to Warhawk and set it in space - just bring a new setting, story, and a solo campaign. But we realized that we needed to bring something extra, so when LittleBigPlanet came out, we thought, "wouldn't it be cool to make your own shooter?"

So, we tried it, and we actually have test levels back at the office. Instead of LittleBigPlanet giving you these macro tools, we gave you these almost jigsaw puzzle pieces – anything that you saw in a level, you could've built in this early prototype.

It had...

To quote: Up to four controllers are supported at once, and key mappings are completely configurable, as well as the analog sticks, which are currently emulated as digital key presses.

Important - Due to the non-standard protocol that the controllers use to communicate with the host, this application requires root access. Additionally, it is incompatible with most HTC devices and some newer Samsung devices. This is due to the required bluetooth protocol not being implemented on these devices. We are actively...
 

Avoidance v0.1 PS3 Homebrew Port is Now Released

250°
162w ago - Following up on his previous PlayStation 3 homebrew game development, this weekend ThatOtherDev has released a PS3 port of Avoidance v0.1 from the Nintendo Wii and PC version.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

To quote: Here is a really bad port of my Wii/PC game Avoidance. It still plays and renders at 640x480 and instead of forcing the screen resolution down to that or being stretched to fill the screen its just drawn in the center of the screen with black borders filling the unused space. So the higher your resolution the less of the screen is actually used.

If you are using a low resolution with component cables then part of the screen will flicker (I'm not completely sure why but it seems although double buffering is behaving differently then it does when using HDMI). Your score and high score are not displayed on screen and your high score is not saved.

Like I said, it is a really bad port but it is playable and I don't intend to spend any time trying to correct its flaws in the near future so I figured I would just post it as is.
