Video: Flex Your Lexicon in Page Chronica, Out Tuesday on PSN

50°
108w ago - Red Hare Studios Producer Wee Lit Koh has invited fans to flex their Lexicon in Page Chronica, which is out Tuesday on PSN with a video trailer below.

To quote: During the making of our game Page Chronica, a common question has been "Is this an edutainment game?" Whenever we hear that word, our bodies cringe and we adamantly deny the claim.

In the gaming industry, the term conjures memories of boring school educational games that would alienate the majority of our console gamers. So for a long period of time, we would refuse to admit that our game is such a thing.

However, we eventually lightened up to the notion. That is not to say that we have fully accepted the classification, but it is more of a matter of tweaking our perspectives. So to all the edutainment-haters out there, we're here to convince you to withhold judgment and give Page Chronica a try.

Page Chronica is not your average side-scrolling action-platformer. It is an action-oriented word-puzzle game that combines elements of action-platformers with the forming of words. Capture letters and form words of various lengths and complexity to gain the power to unleash a variety of Spells and Attacks. The stronger the words formed, the more powerful you will be.



 

Arkedo Series: Three Games in One Bless Your PS3 Tomorrow

50°
114w ago - Sanuk Games Manager Yan Marchal has introduced the Arkedo series today proclaiming that three games in one will be blessing the PS3 entertainment system tomorrow.

To quote: I'm happy to announce the release of Arkedo Series on the PlayStation Store for PS3 tomorrow, October 16th! Arkedo Series is a collection of three tightly crafted arcade games that will douse your console in a colorful world and challenge you with some serious old-school action!

First comes "JUMP!", a platformer where your 8-bit hero must collect bombs before they blow up, while avoiding nasty little bats, 2-way powered crabs, sharp stalactites, spikes from hell, and a bunch of other oddities.

The game is so truthful to the old-school experience that it has no 'continue': once you've lost all your lives, you have to start it all over again - but in a good mood!

Then comes "SWAP!", a Match-4 game where you must clear blocks before they reach the top of the screen. Combos, bonus blocks, power blocks and time freezers will help you escape critical situations and dominate the five worlds contained in the game. And once you think you're done, you'll find out that there are still a number of things waiting for you in Challenge mode!

Last but not least comes "PIXEL!", the platformer that will have...

To quote: If you're like me, you've been watching the recent Prometheus trailers ([Register or Login to view links]) over and over, pausing only to wipe the frothy spittle off your chin.

If you're really like me, you've also been wondering, "what's it gonna take for some talented studio to create a killer game based on the Alien films?"

Luckily, Gearbox Software is building an increasingly compelling case with Aliens: Colonial Marines, an upcoming big-budget PS3 shooter that aims to pick up where James Cameron's seminal 1986 film Aliens left off.

While we know a good bit about the game's tense single-player campaign, details about its multiplayer component have remained frustratingly elusive. So we took to [Register or Login to view links] followers a simple question – what do you want to know about the multiplayer mode in Aliens: Colonial Marines?

We received a flood of questions - some insightful, some maniacally detail-oriented - and presented them to [Register or Login to view links]
