17w ago - Square Enix Senior Online Community Manager Matt Hilton invites fans to save the snowmen in Final Fantasy XIV's holiday celebration which is begins today.

To quote: With the recent release of A Realm Awoken, the first major content patch for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, we're pleased to introduce a fun seasonal event for players to enjoy.

The annual Starlight Celebration has returned, and the citizens of the three city-states have done their best to decorate the towns for the occasion. Unfortunately, the snowmen they ordered from the frozen north were kidnapped (Snownapped?) en route!

Adventurers around the realm must get to the bottom of this chilly mystery and find out why the snowmen have disappeared. Could it be the mischievous imps behind the attacks? Save the snowmen, save the world.

Those adventurers willing to brave the elements will be rewarded handsomely with new seasonal outfits designed around a snowman, reindeer, and even a set of "red and white" gear that matches a certain someone's outfit... There's even cute reindeer barding to equip your personal chocobo with. The Starlight Celebration will be available until December 31st, 2013, so be sure to join in.

After you complete...

To quote: It's been almost a year since the season finale of The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series, and we know a lot of you have been wondering what the world has in store next for Clementine... today, we get to find out!

The season premiere episode, All That Remains, is available to download today for PS3 on PlayStation Store for $4.99.

I don't want to say too much for fear of spoiling the episode, but if you missed last week's trailer and want a little sneak peek, check it out below.

We're working with PlayStation to get the Season Pass option up as soon as possible - stay tuned for info on that.





If you're looking to wait until the Season Pass option becomes available on PlayStation Store, remember to check out the Season One DLC Episode, 400 Days. Not only will choices from Season One carry into Season Two, but choices from 400 Days will affect your Season Two playthrough as well.

Haven't played Telltale's first season of The Walking Dead? It's not too late to get caught up for Season Two. The Walking Dead: Episode One - A New Day is free to download...
 

10tons Ltd Announces Sparkle on PlayStation Vita is Out Today

17w ago - Today 10tons Ltd PR Coordinator Jaakko Maaniemi announced that Sparkle on PlayStation Vita is officially released!

To quote: Hello, readers! Greetings from the magical winter wonderland* of Finland.

I'm Jaakko from multiplatform game developer 10tons. Even though we've been around for ten years now, we're genuinely excited to make our PS Vita debut this week.

The game we've chosen to be the spearhead of our entry to PS Vita is Sparkle. It's a marble shooter puzzle game, and probably the most popular game we've ever made.

The game is actually out on PS Vita in Europe already, and we've received a whole lot of positive reviews and feedback on it. Many noted that this particular subgenre of match-three is extremely underrepresented on PS Vita. Not anymore!

What sets Sparkle apart from many marble shooters are the big and brash power-ups, considerable level of challenge, and the slightly dark, mysterious theme. This type of game fits mobile gaming really well, and PS Vita is the ultimate device to play it on. Playing Sparkle with the touchscreen is fast and accurate, but if you prefer thumbstick controls, they're there as well.

We're also really happy it's possible to offer free trials of games on PS Vita. We realize...

If you need your Zen Pinball fix now, Doctor Strange is still releasing today on PS3 and Vita for $2.99 (and yes, it will be on PS4 next week).

In advance of our PS4 release next week, we want to give you some detailed information about how the import process works. Please bookmark this post in case you need this information next week.

There are a few details that we really need you all to pay close attention to so you have a smooth transition from PS3 to PS4....

17w ago - Beatshapers Founder and CEO Alexey Menshikov announced that Furmins is out on PS Vita beginning today!

To quote: Happy holidays, everyone! Furmins - an innovative physics puzzle game - is out today on PS Vita.

In Furmins, players guide a bunch of adorable creatures across cunningly designed levels by rearranging a variety of items, as well as using bumpers and conveyor belts in real-time with coordinated precision.

The quest at hand: to travel across the length of their world to wake up their King, who has fallen asleep and rolled over a river to form an impromptu dam that threatens their very existence! Strategically placed items create pathways and physical chain reactions, which guide the furmins to the basket - and level completion.

The PS Vita version offers exclusive features such as a brand new scoring system, global and per-world scoreboards with filters (overall, friends, your score), and the possibility to play with both the touch screen and rear touch pad.





Features

• A complete version of the game containing 108 levels across 9 game worlds (the 9th world coming as DLC)
• Unique blend of physics-based, set-up-and-go play with real-time interaction
