160w ago - Relentless Software CG Supervisor Stewart Jones has unveiled their upcoming Blue Toad Murder Files (BTMF) Christmas Advent Calendar PS3 Theme today.
To quote: With the festive season and Blue Toad Murder Files first birthday approaching we wanted to have an extra 'Christmas Present' in the shape of a theme to hand out with our game. Please have a read to hear what we've done!
The idea of a Blue Toad Christmas Theme was discussed; we're all big fans of Christmas! As a result a brief was created in which we needed to take the village of Little Riddle and add some festive spirit to the design... Oh, and any reference to an advent calendar would be appreciated too!
We decided that the background should stay the same throughout; however, we wanted to use the iconic detective's magnifying glass to show a different image each day during December leading up to Christmas Eve.
Having the number of images in the theme limited to 24 which spookily coincides with the number of windows in a traditional advent calendar seemed like a good omen!
At first we had an actual advent calendar displayed over the whole screen, but in practice this obscured the XMB and no one could easily navigate the options... Fail!
163w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Specialist David Bull has made available a Dead Nation trailer video today which spotlights weapon and armor upgrades alongside news of a new PS3 Theme.
To quote: Zombies, zombies everywhere. They're coming from above you and below, they're coming from all sides. So how are you supposed to fend off the increasing hordes as you progress through Dead Nation? Upgrades!
In Dead Nation's action-packed levels, it's crucial to collect as much cash as possible from the undead hordes and trunks of vehicles. Once you find a Weapon Shop, you'll be able to cash in your loot and purchase more ammo and, most importantly, weapon upgrades.
Increasing the power and firing rate for your default Rifle can be the difference between life and (un)death, especially since it's your designated fallback weapon and the only gun with unlimited ammo.
The SMG and Shotgun also benefit enormously from power and firing rate, helping you annihilate dozens of ghouls at a time. You can also upgrade ammo carrying capacity and clip size for most weapons, while power weapons such as the Blade Cannon feature special weapon-specific upgrades.
