Video: RSBLSB Introduces Their First PS3 Game Dyad for PSN

50°
162w ago - Today RSBLSB (Right Square Bracket Left Square Bracket) Creator Shawn McGrath has introduced their first PS3 game called Dyad for PSN alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: I am very excited to be introducing [Register or Login to view links]'s first PlayStation Network game: [Register or Login to view links].

Dyad is an abstract racing game that has influences in many genres including racing games, fighting games, puzzle games and classic arcade shooters.

Dyad does away with the traditional racing game mechanics of break and accelerate and replaces them with puzzle-like mechanics. You must interact with your enemies in unique and varying ways in order to gain speed.

I've always loved the visceral feel racing games provided, especially the WipeOut series, and I wanted to translate that feeling into a puzzle game. In most racing games, each track has an ideal 'racing line' which players must memorize and translate into muscle memory in order to be successful - I remember months of repeating tracks in WipeOut XL for the PSX!





With Dyad I replaced the mental process of memorizing a racing line with various combo mechanics. Dyad begins with very basic comboing rules centred around...

162w ago - Art and Designer Michael Michael at PomPom Games has made available some new video footage while announcing today that Alien Zombie Mega Death will be hitting the PS3 on June 21, 2011.

To quote: Make sure you have $8 in your PlayStation Store wallet come June 21st and prepare yourself for one of the most ridiculously intense shoot-em-ups ever... or at least since [Register or Login to view links] made their last PlayStation game.

But first, a dash of history. Last year PomPom made [Register or Login to view links] on PSP minis.

Heralded as "pacy, mean-spirited, and delightful" by [Register or Login to view links], it was a simple, extremely focused platform shooter. We loved making it. Anybody with the required skill set loved playing it. Those who didn't clearly play too much backgammon.

Now, on PS3, we have the official sequel to [Register or Login to view links]! We've taken the original game, pulled out a big jar of MEGA, and gratuitously poured it all over. The result? [Register or Login to view links]!



 

Videos: Killzone 3 PS3 - From the Ashes Pack: The Retro Maps

50°
162w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Aryeh Loeb is here with some fresh video footage today and details on the Killzone 3 PS3 'From the Ashes' Pack dubbed The Retro Maps.

To quote: Last week we posted preview videos of the first two maps from "From The Ashes", the third DLC pack for Killzone 3. Today we're offering preview videos of the other two maps included with the pack: Tharsis Depot and Radec Academy. If these names sound familiar, it's because they're re-imagined and revamped versions of the beloved Killzone 2 maps.

The first preview video features Tharsis Depot, a Guerrilla Warfare map for 16 players based on the Killzone 2 classic. After incurring damage during the ISA invasion of Helghan, the depot has been converted to process nuclear Petrusite.

The Helghast made extensive use of jetpacks to facilitate the reconstruction process, but the harsh conditions resulting from the damage still made it a grueling endeavor. The ISA have locked their sights on Tharsis Depot now that it's back in full-scale production, and this time they intend to finish the job they started.





To give you a sense of what's changed, this video shows comparisons of the original and the new version:
