50°
228w ago - Halfbrick's Phil Larsen has shared a video today showcasing Rocket Racing which will be coming to PSN as a PS3 and PSP Mini game next week.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] is the next title to hit PSP minis from Halfbrick, and I'm excited to announce that it will be released next Thursday, March 11.

Rocket Racing has been developed from the ground up, combining high-speed futuristic racing with classic top-down gameplay, which is a perfect fit for minis.

Each track has been designed with a unique twist, suspended high in the air above the clouds and cityscapes to give players a light and almost surreal feeling as they drift around the crisp, detailed courses.

Challenge Mode is the main backbone of gameplay, giving players a number of tasks to complete over six different tiers. Completing once challenge with its specific objectives will unlock adjacent challenges along the tier, so players can choose their own path to the final race.





A key part of racing is the ability to grind. Grinding is a new concept which involves positioning your rockets against the outer walls of the tracks. This opposing force will give you a speed boost as well...

229w ago - Today Online Community Manager Kevin Eva has announced Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing PS3 demo is now available on PSN.

To quote: I'm pleased to confirm that the PSN demo of Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing is now available for you to download.

The SUMO Digital team have been working hard to provide a truly luscious visual experience and you'll be able to get a taste of what All-Star Racing action is all about.

The PlayStation 3 has its own track not available on any other platform's demo which is based off of Blizzard Castle from Billy Hatcher & The Giant Egg.

The track called Rampart Road has you quite literally racing all over the castle itself as you avoid rolling eggs, heavy snow drifts and devious crows - they may look like cats but they are indeed crows!

You'll have two characters to play in the demo, Sonic The Hedgehog (obviously) and Dr. Eggman, their vehicles have their own specific traits - try both of them and see.

As an FYI, you can alter the difficulty settings, the demo should be set to "Advanced" from the get go but you can reduce this to Basic if you find the action a little too intense.

Master drifting around corners and pull off aerial tricks to get a speed boost. Use the range of weapons available to...

Video: ModNation Racers PS3 Racing Designer Walkthrough

237w ago - United Front Games Designer Mat Thomas has shared a ModNation Racers PS3 racing video walkthrough today on the PlayStation Blog.

To quote: Today I want to talk about our approach to the racing and give you an insight into the philosophy around developing the handling, weapons and AI.

When we started working on ModNation Racers we knew we couldn't simply create a basic physics system to deliver our core race experience. We were also weary of the fact that unlike many racers, the player in ModNation Racers will also be focused on weapon play.

Very early on in development we experimented with extremely tight handling (akin to driving on rails) and a much more physical race experience. What we soon realized is that when the handling model is tight, there is not much fun in the race experience, it was essentially too easy and likewise when the user is spending a lot of time concentrating on just keeping the vehicle on the track with a more complex handling model then this doesn't leave any mental power to experiment and use weapons.

So as you may expect we ended up with something in the middle which offered us the physicality and emergent feel that for us makes this feel like a true next generation karting title. What we found is that this made the handling very much pick...
