LightBox Interactive: All Starhawk Beta Players to Receive Free Gifts

50°
134w ago - LightBox Interactive President Dylan Jobe has announced today that all Starhawk Beta Players will receive free gifts, with details below!

To quote: After years of hard work on Starhawk I am wicked excited to finally announce that [Register or Login to view links] has gone gold and will be on store shelves in North America on May 8th! GOOOOOAAAAALLLL!

Starhawk is not your normal off-the-shelf shooter. We've certainly taken some chances with this game, but it's gonna be worth it: The Build & Battle system alters the traditional shooter recipe in such a way that when you play other shooters you may find yourself frustrated that you can't build bunkers, walls, outposts, and all the other stuff that Starhawk lets you build.

So if you're a shooter fan looking for a change of pace, definitely pick up Starhawk!

Nothing ever comes easy though, and integrating Build & Battle certainly took a bunch of iteration and refinement both internally during production here at LightBox Interactive and also during our private and public betas. You guys were really great beta testers, so as a "thank you" for your participation we're giving you two exclusive items.





The first is The Hand of the...
 

Mass Effect 3: N7 Weekly Challenges Come to PSN This Weekend

50°
134w ago - Today Bioware Community Manager Eduardo Vasconcellos has announced that Mass Effect 3: N7 weekly challenges are coming to PSN this weekend!

To quote: Priority transmission to alliance soldiers of the playstation network: reinforcements are coming...

From: Admiral Steven Hackett, Citadel Allied Command
Re: Operation EXORCIST
Confidentiality Classification: XA-PRIME
Distribution: N7 Forces Only

Soldiers of the Milky Way - By now it is no secret that the Reaper War has had its share of logistical SNAFUs. It is to the galaxy's credit that, when we put out the call for volunteers, we were answered by individuals of every species from Citadel, Traverse, Terminus space, and most significantly for this operation, the PlayStation Network.

Unfortunately, the diversity of equipment sources meant our allies ran into hardware and software incompatibilities.

These brave men and women have been fighting beside you and, in doing so, have gone above and beyond normal duty. Because their units were not properly tracked, they fought without pay and sometimes without proper training, equipment, even rations. It is a mark of their character that these warriors of the PlayStation Network took the grave task set before us and stuck it out through sheer determination.
 

Video: See PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale in Action on PS3

134w ago - SuperBot Entertainment Game Director Omar Kendall has shared a video today showcasing PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale in action on the PS3 entertainment system!

To quote: Today marks a special day for us here at [Register or Login to view links], as we finally get to share our game with the world! PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale existed as an idea in the hearts of gamers way before SuperBot got around to making it, and the expectations of the fans are really what drive us.

This game is a labor of love, and we're excited to be able to finally show it - learn more in our new video interview above.

So what is PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale? First and foremost, it's a celebration of a storied history of great characters and rich worlds brought together in one game.

And for us, there's no better way to celebrate than by creating an experience that players can sit around one screen and enjoy together.

There are probably a few types of games that can be enjoyed by four players simultaneously, but for us at SuperBot, a brawler was the obvious choice for one really good reason: the developers here at SuperBot really like fighting games

To quote: Hi everyone! My name is Manrique Brenes and I'm the senior director of the consumer electronics group at Skype.

We've very happy to announce that the Skype Video and Voice calling app for PS Vita will be available later today on PlayStation Store.

Starting later today, you can enjoy free [Register or Login to view links] calls on PS Vita. You'll be able to keep in touch with gamers around the globe while you're on the go as Skype is available for both the 3G/Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi models.

The Skype app includes free Skype-to-Skype voice calling, as well as high-quality video calling that utilizes PS Vita's front and rear cameras.

Plus, with a little Skype credit you can make low-cost calls to landlines and mobile directly from your PS Vita.

As you know, PS Vita is equipped with a 5" OLED touchscreen, dual analog sticks, precise rear...
 

Videos: The Pinball Arcade Scores on PS3 and PS Vita Today

136w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King has shared some new video footage of The Pinball Arcade, which scores on both the PS3 and PS Vita console today!

To quote: With the PS3 and PS Vita launches of The Pinball Arcade on PSN this week, I thought that I'd share a few more details about our game and offer some general gameplay tips.

The launch tables include one from each of the four major manufactures that we've licensed. Tales of the Arabian Nights (Williams), Ripley's Believe It or Not (Stern), Theatre of Magic (Bally), and Black Hole (Gottlieb).

Tales and Black Hole were part of the Pinball Hall of Fame games. We've spent a lot of time improving the physics and the graphics of our pinball engine over the past few years, so we feel that they're definitely worthy of updating.

When we first made the Gottlieb collection we gathered references from the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas. We took a lot of pictures, recorded the audio with microphones, and took notes on the rules along with gameplay video reference. We actually re-programmed all of the rules from scratch.





That was a huge challenge! Now, we buy all of the tables and take them apart. Plus, we now have a bunch of physics...
