13w ago - Square Enix Associate Product Manager Mat Kishimoto announced that Lightning Returns with the new Final Fantasy XIII demo out today on PS3!

To quote: If you haven't been lucky enough to attend E3, San Diego Comic Con, Penny Arcade Expo, or the other shows that have hosted Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, we have good news. We're excited to announce that you can get hands-on with it in a playable demo that's dropping TODAY.

From now on, you don't have to take our word for it that this game is unlike anything Final Fantasy has ever done before, because it's finally time for you to see for yourself.

First off, downloading the demo scores you an exclusive piece of DLC that we're giving to you PlayStation fans - the Utsusemi Samurai garb - that you can use in the main game (it's not in the demo itself, so don't panic if you don't see it).

Again, this offer is exclusive to PlayStation owners too, so right off the bat you're getting something not everybody's going to get, JUST for downloading it. You can't tell, but I'm winking at you, especially at all you Final Fantasy XI Ninjas.

So what's in the demo itself? Of course, you're playing as Lightning, but you're now mysteriously tracking down her old friend Snow Villiers in the city of Yusnaan. As Lightning, it's...
 

Halfbrick Announces Age of Zombies is Out Today on PS Vita

13w ago - Halfbrick Community Coordinator James Schultz announced that Age of Zombies is out today on PS Vita.

Below are the details, to quote: Hey guys, James here from Halfbrick. I hope you're feeling fresh and re-energized for the year ahead!

Today, we're pleased to announce the U.S. launch of Age of Zombies for PS Vita. We're super excited about this, and I think you'll agree that BlitWorks has done an incredible job taking Age of Zombies to a whole new level of awesomeness on PS Vita.

It's been almost four years since Age of Zombies was first released as a PS Mini, but despite a wealth of improvements and updates, there's always been one thing missing: physical twin stick controls. That all changed with the launch of PS Vita, and we've finally found the perfect device to capture the sheer joys of blasting zombies on the go.

So, what's the game all about? Glad you asked! Age of Zombies was the first game to star wise-cracking hero Barry Steakfries, who many of you will know as the main character from Monster Dash and Jetpack Joyride. It's a crazy, hilarious, and over-the-top adventure. And it features time travel, romance, and a whole lot more.

The evil Professor Brains has sent hordes of undead to the farthest reaches of time, and it's up to you to save the day....

Below are the details, to quote: Hey everyone! I'm Corey Rollins from Klei Entertainment, and I'm here to talk about our newest PS4 downloadable game: Don't Starve. It's available today on PlayStation Store for $14.99 and it's free for PlayStation Plus.

If you're new to the game, Don't Starve is an uncompromising wilderness survival game full of science and magic. While there are many unique characters to discover and unlock along the way, you'll start as the gentleman scientist, Wilson.

After being lured with infinite knowledge by a demon named Maxwell, Wilson finds himself trapped in a mysterious and unforgiving world. Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home.

Don't Starve is a game that gives no instruction, and forces players to adapt or die in the process. And oh my, die you will! After every death, a new world is procedurally generated, and you'll find yourself scrambling to gather resources, explore the world, encounter bizarre creatures, and play your own way to unravel the mysteries around you.

One of the biggest features of the console...
 

Video: Mojang Outlines 10 Tips for Playing Minecraft on PS3

50°
17w ago - Mojang's Owen Hill outlined 10 tips alongside a video today for those playing Minecraft on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Hi again guys, Owen from Mojang, here. Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition launched a few days ago. We thought it would be nice to get some tips from the developers to help you learn the basics.

I asked around the office and gathered these for you. Hope they help!

1. Never dig straight down! It's a lot harder to get back to the surface, and you might end up dropping into lava. Lava is uncomfortably hot.

2. Never dig straight up! You might end up with a head full of sand, gravel, or the melty hot stuff we mentioned earlier.

3. If you come to a junction while mining, and one of the routes leads upwards, take that one. Explore the safe options first, and then go adventuring deep underground.

4. Always watch your back in dark places! There might be something scary behind you... waaah!

5. Make sure you bring torches. Place them first, then collect the resources later.
