Videos: Learn the Secrets of The Last of Us PS3 Multiplayer

35w ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty has shared several videos today unveiling some of the secrets from The Last of Us PS3 Multiplayer for fans below.

To quote: Greetings, PlayStation-ers! My name is Colin Moriarty, IGN's Senior Editor.

If you're a PlayStation fanatic - and since you're on the PlayStation.Blog, you probably are - you may recognize me as the man in charge of IGN's PS4, PS3, and PS Vita coverage. You may also know me as one-third of Podcast Beyond.

Today, I write my inaugural PlayStation.Blog post to tell you about something I'm very excited for. See, I'm pretty darn keen on The Last of Us... so much so, in fact, that I got sucked in for about 40 hours worth of multiplayer madness after the game launched. And that got me thinking: who's responsible for The Last of Us' most understated feature, its online suite?

Naturally, I found an answer. Naughty Dog's David Ballard was kind enough to come to IGN's San Francisco headquarters to record a series of videos with me, one for each map in the multiplayer suite.

As an integral part of the creation of...
 

Chillingo's iBomber Defense Blasts Onto PS Mobile This Week

50°
38w ago - Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Paul Sullivan confirmed that Chillingo's iBomber Defense blasts onto PS Mobile this week.

To quote: Every Tuesday, there are new games, apps and updates added to PlayStation Mobile. Action Button Entertainment's Ten By Eight and Chillingo's iBomber Defense released this week, along with updates to 0War and Mononoke Slashdown.

New Releases

Ten by Eight by Action Button Entertainment ($2.99)

Ten By Eight is a puzzle game strong enough for a brain surgeon and pH-balanced for a rocket scientist. You can clear as few as three tiles, though don't stop there!

Swap tiles into groups of three or more. Chain up the longest match you can. Use wildcard star tiles to link a chain of one color to a chain of another color. Heat the action up in any of three modes. Timed Mode asks you how many points you can make in three minutes.

Zen Mode asks you to hang out and make your own challenges (try clearing all eighty tiles in one action). And Endless Mode never ends – if you're good enough. In Endless Mode stone tiles will appear. Surround them to destroy them; if one touches the bottom, it's game over. Also, the music is great.

iBomber Defense by Chillingo (EA Inc.) ($2.79)
 

Video: The Last of Us Multiplayer: 24 Survival Tips on PlayStation 3

200°
38w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is here with a video showcasing The Last of Us Multiplayer on PlayStation 3 which includes 24 survival tips below.

To quote: Two things. First, The Last of Us has a multiplayer mode called Supply Raid that is the freshest, most addictive mode I've experienced in years. Second, I apologize for not posting this guide weeks ago - I've been playing way, way too much TLOU!

The Last of Us differs from other multiplayer games in many ways. It's stealthy, ammo and resources are scarce, and teamwork is absolutely vital. What's more, your total kills take a backseat to Parts - a currency that you can spend on weapon upgrades, ammo, power weapons, and armor.

All of which are capable of evening the odds in a match. You score Parts by downing and executing enemy players, but also reviving teammates, healing friends, and crafting and distributing items.

This tip guide will focus primarily on Supply Raid, which is TLOU's answer to the venerable Team Deathmatch. Stick around for some tips we solicited from Twitter, and leave your own tips in the comments below!





Upgrade melee ASAP. The upgraded two-by-four is the ultimate equalizer, and you'll want it right away. It's...

50°
42w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli posted up a video today from The Last of Us Development Series Episode 4 dubbed Them or Us below.

To quote: The various choices you'll have to make with regard to combat in The Last of Us are representative of the larger human struggle in the game world.

How will people act when tension is unbearable and their life might be on the line? What are the consequences of those actions once enacted? While the third video in our development series explored the moment-to-moment tensions in the world of The Last of Us, our fourth video looks at the action and potential consequences of inertia in the face of those tensions.

If you've missed any of our development series, be sure to watch the first video and second video to get up to speed. An in-depth glimpse into all the topics covered in the series is available in Grounded: The Making of The Last of Us, our ninety minute documentary about the development of the game. You can get Grounded by purchasing the season pass.

We have two episodes left in this series. The next video will explore the characters of Joel and Ellie, who they are, and some of what it took to make them as pivotal to the game as we wanted them to be.
