Hoard Coming to PAX, Four-Player Co-Op Confirmed via PSN

50°
209w ago - Big Sandwich Games Design Director Tyler Sigman has revealed today that Hoard is coming to PAX, and that four-player co-op is also confirmed for the PS3 and PSP title via PSN.

To quote: Dragons, gold, jewels, and princesses – they'll all be on display at [Register or Login to view links] next month when [Register or Login to view links] makes its first appearance to the general public!

For those of you that don't know, Hoard is an arcade action title coming to PSN (both for PS3 and PSP). In this score-attack game, up to four players take the part of small dragons with very big ambitions, and try to amass a hoard of glittering treasure in over 30 different kingdoms.

How do you get treasure, you ask? By BURNING things, of course! And kidnapping princesses for ransom... At the Big Sandwich Games booth (#3012), we'll have two screens of non-stop dragon combat action, swag, and prizes for a daily high-score competition. Oh, and we'll also have a real, honest-to-goodness princess. So come get your firebreathing on!

Since our last post, we can confirm four-player co-op play has been added to the game – thanks for all the comments! That rounds our feature set out with Treasure, Princess Rush, Hoard (Survival), and Co-op modes. We support...
 

Video: Kung-Fu LIVE: Coming to PAX Prime & PS3 Trailer Debut

100°
210w ago - Virtual Air Guitar Company CEO Teemu Maki-Patola has shared news today that Kung-Fu LIVE is coming to PAX Prime alongside a new PS3 trailer debut.

To quote: The trailer gives PlayStation owners a taste of the epic multiplayer opportunities to pick up a controller and fight a player on-screen. It also adds insight into just how far you can take your costume ideas in Kung-Fu LIVE.

Working on the game this summer has been a non-stop fight to the finish. We've been balancing the physics on all of the interactive items in the new environments and everything is coming along smoothly.

We're spending a ton of time on the soon-to-be-revealed boss battles and on tuning the difficulty levels of different in-game enemies. As a big first step for motion-based gaming, the hard difficulty level will actually be challenging your fighting skills to the max.





As for multiplayer, it's been one of the most fun things to test and tweak in the office. You can see the idea in the trailer with the ninja fighting the bald dude on the left and the blond guy on the right (yours truly). That's just a taste of what you can do in this game.

It can even be expanded to four players using DualShock 3 controllers against one fighter playing...

229w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has shared some pictures and details from PAX East 2010: The Naughty Dog LIVE PS3 game design panel today.

To quote: We've all returned - and mostly recuperated - from our trip to Boston this past weekend to attend [Register or Login to view links].

It was both a pleasure and an honor to make it out for the inaugural PAX on the East Coast, not only to attend the show, but also to participate in [Register or Login to view links].

Everyone at [Register or Login to view links] deserves all our gratitude for putting together such a smooth first - and completely sold out PAX in Boston. We're looking forward to [Register or Login to view links]!

We weren't expecting the massive turnout for our panel on Saturday, "Naughty Dog LIVE: Game Design with the Dogs." When I got to the Naga Theater to setup for our panel, the line waiting to get in was insane - and it was a whole half-hour before our panel was due to start. I heard some people had been waiting in line for over an hour at one point.

It was sad to hear that PAX Enforcers had to turn away a...

287w ago - Penny Arcade has announced that PAX 2009 will take place from September 4th to the 6th at the Convention Center in Seattle, Washington.

Those interested in pre-registering can do so now [Register or Login to view links] (or linked above), and exhibitor updates will be detailed as the event draws near. To quote, in part, from the site's [Register or Login to view links]:

What is PAX?
PAX is a three-day game festival for tabletop, videogame, and PC gamers. We call it a festival because in addition to dedicated tournaments and freeplay areas we've got nerdcore concerts, panel discussions, the weekend-long Omegathon event, and an exhibitor hall filled with booths displaying the latest from top game publishers and developers.

Even with all this amazing content the best part of PAX is hanging out with other people who know their stuff when it comes to games.

How much does PAX cost?
The three-day pre-registration rate is $50, which is a $5 discount from the at-the-door price. Details and the pre-registration link can be found here. We'll be mailing pre-reg badges the second week of August, so when you register, make sure to think ahead when you enter your mailing address.

Your PAX badge is all-access, and is...
