Sony Announces Dust 514 Deploys Today on PlayStation Network

48w ago - Sony Creative Director CCP Praetorian announced that Dust 514 officially deploys today on PlayStation Network!

To quote: Greeting DUST Mercs! Ten years ago EVE Online launched on PC, and during that time it evolved with its players into the incredibly successful, critically acclaimed sci-fi game that players know today.

It grew organically beyond the original vision of the designers and into the player-driven galactic sandbox game where immortal starship pilots take the power to dictate their own destiny.

About a year ago we began a similar journey with DUST 514.

We set out to create something so ambitious and so crazy that we as gung-ho Vikings, had no choice but to make work. We sought to expand the EVE Universe from the stars to the planetary surfaces by creating an intense FPS on console and linking it to the largest single-shard PC-based MMO in history.

Not only did we want to link DUST 514 to EVE, we wanted a ramped-up level of interaction where DUST mercs communicated with EVE pilots and cooperated in space and on the ground to generate galactic conflict of amazing scale.

Mission accomplished. We are humbled and proud to be with you here on launch day to deliver on that original vision. Now that DUST 514 has launched, a new door has opened...

Stealth Bstard is Now Stealth Inc - Clone in the Dark, Coming to PSN

51w ago - Curve Studios Lead Designer Sam Robinson announced today that Stealth Bstard is now Stealth Inc - Clone in the Dark and confirmed it is coming to PSN.

To quote: It brings me great pleasure to announce that the renaming competition for Stealth Bstard, our wonderfully nefarious stealth-puzzle-platformer, was a complete success!

Rather than picking just one of our favorite entries, we've chosen two and fused them together to create one ultimate, unified gaming title: Stealth Inc. - A Clone in the Dark!

It's with this we'd like to congratulate Ash Baker for 'Stealth Inc.' (and for the other 250 entries submitted thereafter) and Ben Collins for 'A Clone in the Dark'. You will both be awarded a PS Vita, a copy of Stealth Inc. - A Clone in the Dark when it's released and you will both appear in the credits of the game!

You are both stars and we are eternally grateful to you both for coming up with a clean name that our coarse minds were incapable of formulating!

If you yourself entered one of the above ideas for a game title but are not listed as a winner, this is because we had to accept winning entries on a first come, first serve basis... we simply do not have that many PS Vitas to give away! Take solace in the fact that your mind is powerful and the world...
 

Sony Unveils God Mode, Storms PlayStation Network on April 23, 2013

52w ago - Old School Games Producer Nick Madonna announced via Sony's blog today that God Mode storms PlayStation Network on April 23, 2013.

To quote: Old School Games is a new game studio launched by Saber Interactive whose focus is to deliver low-cost, high-quality downloadable titles.

Using Saber's technology and development platform, we strive to create digital games that look like retail products. With our first release, God Mode, we wanted to create a lighthearted throwback experience, which focuses on arcade-style action over story. We came up with a classic premise - fighting to get out of Hell - then wrapped it in a third-person shooter with 3D graphics on par with full-price titles.

Finally, we added a slew weapons: plasma launchers, rail guns and what we affectionately call the "buzzsaw," in order to wipe out waves and waves of demonic hordes.

We decided that God Mode should be less about deep narrative and more about action. This approach gave us the ability to really go crazy and build a unique world full of plenty of characters to shoot, blow up, impale and maim.

After making this decision early on in the design process, the designers...

52w ago - Digital Leisure Supervising Producer Paul Gold has posted up a video today spotlighting Mad Dog 2: The Lost Gold announcing it will hit PlayStation Network this Tuesday.

Below are the details, to quote: Following the successful launch this January of arcade classic Mad Dog McCree, gamers have been asking us "Where's Mad Dog 2 already?!"

Well, we listened, and now I'm happy to say that you'll be searching for 'The Lost Gold' this Tuesday with the release of Mad Dog 2 on PSN. We once again went back to the original video and gave it a fresh HD upgrade for this PlayStation Move release.

So pick a guide and get ready to take down the ruthless outlaw Mad Dog McCree once and for all!

This release includes a bunch of extra features, much like its predecessor Mad Dog McCree. We bumped up the original video quality, and remastered it in 720p. We created a fresh new interface to give the game a true western feel.

We've added all new difficulty modes, which will give even the fastest quickdraw a run for their money in their quest to take out Mad Dog - and post their high scores to the worldwide Leaderboards.





Now this might not be the toughest shooter you've played through recently,...
