Daggerdale PS3 Dev Diary: From D&D to Action-RPG on PSN

50°
167w ago - Bedlam Games Director of Production Tim Ernst has revealed details today from the Daggerdale PS3 development diary, covering the transition from Dungeons & Dragons to an Action-RPG on PlayStation Network.

To quote: When we first heard about the opportunity to not only work with Wizards of the Coast but on the Dungeons & Dragons property itself, well let's just say that the nerdgasm around the studio was at an all-time high.

We went with action-RPG as the genre based off of studio competency, market trends and general interest (basically, we thought it was cool and knew we can do a good job of it.) We knew that this the best fit for our first D&D game.

We wanted to make the game as accessible as possible, just let players play, harkening back to the 'old school' days of gaming. You should be able to play alone, call a buddy over and play locally or jump online and find a party of adventurers to group with.

There are definitely development issues with balancing and performance having a downloadable PSN game that is fully featured, but we felt strongly about the usability of the game. Besides, isn't that what D&D is about - freedom of play?

It was also important to us that the player has a persistent character without restrictions that he or she can continually...

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

50°
167w 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°
167w 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...
