164w ago - Design Director Tyler Sigman at Big Sandwich Games announced today that Hoard will be hitting PlayStation 3 via PSN on November 2, 2010 and shared a new video trailer of the title in action.
To quote: November 2nd is the day that HOARD drops on PSN for PlayStation 3! And as big a deal as this is for you, imagine how important it is for dragon-kind! Their story is finally out!
For those of you living in a cave (on a pile of gold?) over the last few months, HOARD is Big Sandwich Games' dual-stick action-strategy game about dragons gathering treasure.
Players roam over a medieval kingdom, burning villages, kidnapping princesses, slaying knights, and otherwise causing mayhem...all in the quest for the shiny stuff.
HOARD will sell for $14.99, and include over 35 unique maps across 4 game modes (Treasure Hunt, Princess Rush, Survival, and Co-op).
With the inclusion of leaderboards and a comprehensive rewards system featuring over 100 badges to earn (and full trophy support), there is easily over 20+ hours of gameplay waiting for you. That's like 1 cent per minute! The phone companies could never give this much value to you!
164w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Manager Anthony Caiazzo has announced today that God of War: Collection will be hitting PS3 via PlayStation Store on November 2, 2010.
To quote: In 2009, our Spartan Army asked for the God of War and God of War II experience to be brought forth on a single Blu-ray disc for the PlayStation 3.
Almost two years later, we are bringing the same great Epic Adventures of Conquest, Destiny and Revenge directly to you through the PlayStation Store.
For those that need a refresher, God of War: Collection was the first to introduce the God of War and God of War II experience in true 720p HD form.
Both titles were remastered with anti-aliased graphics, running at 60 frames per second for a smooth gameplay experience, only on the PlayStation 3 system. Additionally, it also introduced PSN Trophy support to the franchise for the very first time.
Be sure to keep your eyes glued to the PlayStation Store update on 11/2 as both the God of War: Collection and God of War: Ghost of Sparta experience will be available through the PlayStation Store for the first very time.
*God of War: Collection, God of War HD and God of War II HD PSN versions will not contain bonus material and extras from the Blu-ray....
164w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced today that Vanquish hits PS3 this week, and shared a fresh video alongside new PlayStation 3 demo details.
To quote: Recently, I ran into SEGA's Julian Mehlfeld on the way to Toronto for our Canadian Press Event and Reader Meetup.
He promised to show off something new from upcoming Platinum Games shooter Vanquish for the first time at this event: Area 4-1 "Silence."
Here's what we talked about during the demo, and some extended gameplay video to hammer home the points he makes about the game's detail and frenetic gameplay.
Jeff Rubenstein, PS Blog: What are we seeing here?
Julian Mehlfeld, SEGA of America: This section of the game takes place in a forested area. In the last section you're in a transport escaping from what I will not describe - you can see it from yourself when you get the game when it comes out.
You've crash landed in a park. A lot of areas of the game are very industrial - if you've played through the demo, you've got a good sense of that. In this section there's more trees and grass, and kind of a change of pace both in color and environment.
You'll have different cover points, different environmental obstacles....
164w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview of FirstPlay Episode 29 today, which hits PlayStation Store on Wednesday of this week.
To quote: This week I fell over playing football and hit my head on a brick, which, it turns out, meant I had to spend ages lying down and playing the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta. What's that, boss? No, still not quite better...
That's a true story, by the way, and absolutely the thing I'll be blaming my regular typos on this week. The good news is that it also means episode 29 of FirstPlay, out on the Store this Wednesday, features an in-depth look at what the insanely talented LittleBigPlanet community have been making with the tools from the upcoming sequel.
We've also got one last look at the awesomely frantic sci-fi shooter Vanquish before it's released this Friday, plus a review of the PS3-exclusive HD update of classic shooter Medal Of Honor: Frontline, which comes packaged with the new game's Limited Edition, and a review of Robin Hood on Blu-ray.
And there's more - reviews of Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light and Worms 2: Armageddon, plus a look at the latest downloadable comics, and a new feature in which two members of the team clash...
