Hustle Kings - The King of Pool Games for PlayStation 3

50°
288w ago - Today the Technology Director for VooFoo Studios Mark Williams has introduced Hustle Kings for PSN and PS3.

To quote: We really wanted to make sure Hustle Kings was something special right from the start, and the response from the unveiling at E3 has exceeded all of our initial expectations.

Everyone who has seen and played Hustle Kings so far has been incredibly impressed, and one of the things that many people have commented on is how brilliantly the AI plays.

We have such a comprehensive selection of online and multiplayer game modes in Hustle Kings, I was keen to ensure that our single player career campaign was just as challenging and enjoyable.

I initially sat down and played a lot of other pool and snooker games, and it really struck me as to how tiresome and predictable the AI generally was. I found myself wanting to skip past the shots played by my computer controlled opponent as they just weren't fun to watch. Hustle Kings needed something different, I thought, we needed to make our AI both challenging and entertaining.


Pool, and snooker probably even more so, are not games simply about potting balls. When lining up to pot a ball, you ideally want to leave the cue ball in a position that makes your next shot easier. Conversely, if you're...

Comic-Con: Castle Crashers - First Look for PlayStation 3

250°
288w ago - Today we get an early look at what happens when The Behemoth brings its colorful medieval brawler to the PlayStation 3.

To quote: Castle Crashers has been one of the bright lights on Xbox Live Arcade since it was released last August. The stylized side-scrolling brawler offered a winning mix of solid action, quirky charm, and four-player co-op play.

Unfortunately, PlayStation 3 owners haven't been able to get in on the fun--until now. The Behemoth is taking the wraps off of Castle Crashers for the PlayStation 3 at Comic-Con today, and showing off the first playable version of the upcoming downloadable title. We paid the California-based developer a visit for a first look.

For those of you who aren't already familiar with the game, Castle Crashers follows four knights as they head out to rescue their respective special ladies who've been princess-napped (a common problem in games).

The road to rescue sends the knights up against hordes of enemies but, with teamwork, a little help from their animal friends, a variety of different weapons, magic, and some leveling up, a happy ending is guaranteed. The game takes a light action-RPG approach to the head busting by letting you earn experience and level different stats on your knight, such as strength, defense, agility, and magic.
 

WipEout HD Fury Expansion - Zone Tracks for PlayStation 3

50°
288w ago - As a follow-up to our WipEout HD news from earlier todat, SCEA's Producer Daimion Pinnock has announced the WipEout HD Fury Expansion Zone Tracks.

To quote: We're back with the fourth in our series of developer diaries featuring the WipEout HD Fury add-on pack. This week we have Rita Linsley, an artist from the WipEout HD development team. Enjoy!

1. ZONE: Intro & context

'Zone' is speed experienced in its purest state, with no weapons. From a poetic point of view Zone can be likened to riding an atom in a particle accelerator. The speed of the atom as it 'rides the torus' gets increasingly faster and faster, until ultimately it moves at such surreal speeds that it exists contiguously at all points along its path.

It becomes an omnipresent singularity along this path, a very peculiar entity with 'mixed dimensionality.' If we could become that little atom at that moment we would find ourselves connected to a psychedelic 'speed-dimension.' It would be one hell of a trip! So zone mode is all about surreal abstract geometries, and shifting landscapes of colour that create an otherworldly atmosphere.

Michael Jackson Signed PlayStation Selling for $1.5 Million Dollars

550°
288w ago - It's no surprise that Michael Jackson had a passion for video games. His Neverland Ranch arcade collection was a testament to this, but he also signed a PlayStation once.

That Michael Jackson signed PlayStation is now for sale on [Register or Login to view links], seemingly authentic in signature by the late King of Pop.

To quote: While the starting bid is not ludicrous, the Buy It Now price on eBay certainly is. The seller is willing to part with it right now for $1.5 million.

It's doubly special, according to the seller, being the 1,000,001st PlayStation to roll off the assembly line. Funny, that somehow sounds a little less believable than the Moonwalker actually scribbling "I Love You, Michael Jackson" on a game console.
