161w ago - Associate Producer Jenny Barbour has announced today that No Heroes Allowed hits PSN tomorrow for PSP with Dungeon-A-Day and Multiplayer action.
To quote: No Heroes Allowed! is all ready for its PSN release tomorrow, Tuesday, November 2nd. Who better than the game's director, Haruyuki Ohashi, to let you know all about the game's cool features as well as thoughts that went into its creation?
Haruyuki Ohashi, director, No Heroes Allowed!
With the third game in the 'Badman' trilogy we had two goals. Firstly, we wanted to add new features to make the game more fun.
Secondly, we wanted to make the game more accessible to a larger number of players. On the gameplay side, we added water and water-based life forms.
We've also added a bunch of new pickaxes to choose from, from the Snoozerator to the Snacker Whacker - each with its own weird and wonderful special power. These new features add a new strategic dimension to the game and allow you to come up with your own unique play style.
Something else we've worked on is the difficulty level. We had mixed feedback from fans regarding the difficulty of the...
162w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that Blur will be offering Double XP all Halloweekend along with a PS3 developer play session.
To quote: In Blur, when you hit level 50 in the multiplayer system, you have opened up all the cars, activated all the mods, unlocked all the game modes, and hopefully have a decent strategy for all the tracks, from the tight turns of Hackney to the one-way trip down Mount Haruna.
And when you reach level 50, well, there's nowhere else to go. Except around the track, of course. Preferably very quickly.
And then, much like Modern Warfare 2, you face a decision: Do you keep playing with all the big toys, or do you challenge yourself by hitting a Legend rank and building up your reputation and garage again, based on pure skill?
As I write this, I'm level 40 or so. I'm going to get some more racing time in this week. And this weekend, the Blur developers at Bizarre Creations are offering a little Halloween treat - double XP from Friday the 29th through Sunday the 31st.
These are the perks when your studio's logo is a jack-o-lantern. That means for every race, you get twice as many fans, which means ranking up twice as fast,...

162w ago - Treyarch Community Manager Josh Olin has revealed some little-known facts today on Call of Duty: Black Ops Multiplayer for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Thank you for the opportunity to highlight some of the features that Call of Duty: Black Ops will deliver to PS3 fans when it launches on November 9th.
A number of these features are ones that I think the community has been wanting for a long time, which is why we've worked really hard to deliver. So let's get started!
Multiplayer Online Split-Screen Support
Let's get started with what I believe is the most unknown, yet confirmed, aspect to Call of Duty: Black Ops multiplayer - the online split-screen support we've re-introduced to the franchise!
• You can connect a second controller and bring a guest online (i.e. "JD_2020" & "JD_2020(1)").
• Guests can rank up, earn unlocks, etc - all guest progress goes away once signed out.
Custom Games Editor
Allow me to introduce the Black Ops Custom Games Editor! Private matches have never been this customizable. Players will have the ability to structure their games at all new levels of granularity. From variables as simple...
