261w ago - Capcom's John Diamonon answered the following question today via PS Blog: You're probably thinking, "What the flock is FLOCK!?"
Well, today you're going to find out because we have a little surprise for you in the free issue of Qore today.
Below are a couple of videos that show some of the quirky and original gameplay you'll see in the game.
I want to introduce you to one of my co-workers, Robby Zinchak. Don't let his young looks fool you. He's an up-and-coming associate producer extraordinaire who's ready to answer all your questions regarding this truly unique, downloadable game. Just don't ask him to show you his ID. (Just kidding Robby.)
Hi! This is my first time posting here, so I figure I should introduce myself first My name is Robby, and I'm the Associate Producer on FLOCK! here at Capcom. As mentioned previously on this blog, the new episode of Qore (available today!) includes both a video feature on FLOCK! and a fully playable demo!
The premise of FLOCK! is simple: you're a UFO (the 'Flocker') which seeks to abduct animals. Through the levels, you'll abduct these cute animals by herding them into your Motherflocker (yes, really, we named the ship that :P). But it's not a simple...
261w ago - Sr. Producer Rusty Buchert of Sony Santa Monica Studios shared the following today via PS Blog:
Hi all, it's Rusty again from the Santa Monica Studio. We are getting ready to launch Everyday Shooter PSP on the PSN store today, and we are really thrilled about how it has turned out. Between Jon Mak, Backbone Entertainment and us, we have Jon's thoughts about how everything went on getting this made. Hope you all like what we've done.
First things first: the seaweed is gone, but the hashbrowns are still in the freezer.
So Rusty wanted me to write a little blog post about Everyday Shooter for PSP. I don't really know what to talk about so I guess I'll start chronological and see where that goes.
I actually tried porting Everyday Shooter to PSP way back around December 20th, 2007, and stopped around December 27th, 2007. Here's an old video I found from back then:
WHAT!!??!? WHY DIDN'T YOU RELEASE IT!?!?? WHY DID YOU SIT ON IT FOR 239846921487 MONTHS YOU SON OF SO MANY UNMENTIONABLE THINGS!!!!!!!
I thought the same thing until I remembered that it crashed every eight seconds, had a ridiculously low frame rate, was missing graphics and effects, and generally blew.
261w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein passed along some news he received from EA today as follows:
Mirror's Edge developer DICE is planning a special treat for PLAYSTATION 3 owners. When downloadable content for the game is released in late January, they'll make an exclusive Time Trial map available free, only for PS3.
More info on the DLC from EA:
Players will be challenged to achieve the fastest times possible on nine races across seven all-new and totally redesigned Time Trial maps. No guns, no cops, and no city: this is true aesthetics, agility and flow that will challenge any runner.
I think the video says it best:
This special DLC pack will be available for $10. Look for an update on the PlayStation.Blog right before it hits the PlayStation Store.
261w ago - The answer is no, they are not. In fact, they are doing pretty well for the difficult position that they are in at this point in time.
What Sony really needs to focus on right now is profit, and NOT the fanboys nor the console war. A lot of PlayStation fans out their feel the need for Sony to drop the price of the PS3 so it can "beat" the 360 in the console war, and in my opinion that is selfish.
Sony is currently losing profit on every PS3 sold and the only thing they need to focus on right now is making profit. If you factor in all the obstacles in front of the PS3, you would come to the conclusion that the PS3 is doing rather well for it being the most expensive console on the market especially with the economic recession and Sony's lack of marketing.
Now look at all of these challenges the PS3 is going through and then look at the PS3's sales. You cannot deny the fact that the PlayStation brand is the strongest in the industry.
The way it's looking now, Sony is letting their games and their brand name sell their consoles for them. Now, Sony could drop the price and put more effort into marketing and advertising, but why don't they?
Because they are smart, they know if they did that they would lose even more profit then they are now when the PS3 is...
