33w ago - FarSight Studios Lead Designer Bobby King is here with a new video featuring Elvira in The Pinball Arcade which hits PSN tomorrow.
To quote: Happy Halloween week guys and gals - we've got a special treat for you all! In our on-going quest to re-create as many of the best pinball tables of all time, we were able to get the licenses needed from Bally and the Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira!
This means Elvira and the Party Monsters will be released in Table Pack 6 tomorrow, and Scared Stiff will be released before too long in Table Pack 7.
Elvira has been super cool to work with. She invited us to part of her Macabre Museum at Comikaze Expo last month.
We got to show off the Party Monsters table right along with a real machine. Some of the guys here on the pinball team got to meet her, and she even came over and played our game for a while. She's actually pretty good at pinball!

36w ago - Atari Senior Director of Digital Strategy and Distribution Todd Shallbetter has announced alongside a video trailer that the classic Warlords is officially reimagined for PSN today.
To quote: Warlords, one of Atari's original and celebrated arcade titles, is launching in updated form for the PlayStation Network today!
I'm sure there are readers out there who've spent many hours in the arcades playing Warlords and other Atari games back in the 80s. With this new PSN version, we wanted to capture all the fast-paced, multiplayer fun that made the original a hit in its day.
But as you'll see, Warlords has been completely overhauled with a new identity for modern consoles, yet we really felt it important to keep it as true to the original as possible. As Nolan Bushnell used to say, Atari games are "simple to play, difficult to master." I think you'll find that to be the case with Warlords.
The core concept of the game remains the same as the original - defend your fortress while attacking others. You can play either cooperatively or competitively, defending your fort from attacks with up to three other players.
