Fuel Overdose - Tactical Action Racing is Coming to PSN

50°
138w ago - I-Friqiya Executive Producer Skander Djerbi has announced today that tactical action racing title Fuel Overdose is coming to PSN with details below.

To quote: My name is Skander Djerbi, I'm a member of [Register or Login to view links], a tiny indie team located in Tokyo and in charge of [Register or Login to view links].

In our team there is Ryo our graphic designer, Jerome our game designer/level designer/programmer, Hideyuki our character designer while Aroun and I are the producers of the game.

To cut a long story short, we used to work for big publishers and we decided to venture into indie game development in 2010 because we thought we could bring something new to the table; what we are bringing you is Fuel Overdose.

Our ambition with this game is to bring back retro, top-down combat racing, but with a twist; that's why we like to think of our project as a "Tactical Action-Racing" game.

Action

We are not inventing the combat racing genre - we played most of them on consoles and PC over the past 15-20 years, and it appeared very quickly during our first meetings that there was no point trying to develop a remake of these games.

But we also realized that there were some essential...

To quote: The release of Unit 13 is just a few weeks away now, officially launching on March 6th, but you don't have to wait that long to get your hands on the game!

On Monday, February 20th, Unit 13 is going to take over all eight Vita Hill Social Clubs, giving you the chance to dig in to the full Unit 13 experience and find out what it's like to play a console-caliber shooter in the palm of your hands.

Video: Smash 'N' Survive Seeks to Overhaul Vehicular Combat

50°
141w ago - Version2Games President Rajat Ojha has posted up a video today spotlighting Smash 'N' Survive and discussing their plans to overhaul vehicular combat.

To quote: The simulation industry has long been closely associated with game technologies and history seems to be repeating itself: India's number one simulation development company, [Register or Login to view links], has decided to venture into game development and digital publishing with [Register or Login to view links], a wholly owned subsidiary of Zen Technologies Limited. Our vision is to put India on the console gaming map.

I am thrilled to announce Version2Games' first title Smash 'N' Survive, coming to PlayStation Network for $14.99. The core gameplay of Smash 'N' Survive revolves around vehicle combat – it seems we're in the midst of quite a vehicle-combat revival!

But Smash 'N' Survive features several innovations such as a physics-based tornado into which you can push your enemies. This tornado is not the only environmental weapon: You'll find catapults, crushers and other hazards scattered around the maps, and you can use them to annihilate your opponents.

Project: Dual Boot PS3 - 2 NOR Flashes with Switch for Brick Recovery

1100°
141w ago - I want to give everyone the heads-up on my Dual Boot PS3 (2 NOR Flashes with Switch for Brick Recovery) project and try and get some feedback...

For the last few days I've been busy unbricking/downgrading etc. The spare time I've had has gone into designing my own Dual NOR expansion board for the PS3

Basics are this: It allows you to install 2 firmwares - one on either NOR which can be easily enabled/disabled via switch on the mod board. Initially the NOR expansion will need flashing (Dump NOR 1 & flash NOR 2 with the image)

Could be used as a "Brick Backup" if for any reason you brick your onboard NOR, you have a second image on the expansion.
Primary use is of course to Dual Boot firmware without needing to use your programmer all the time - initial program would be a one-off.

Can be quite useful, hence the reason for designing it. I am quite aware of the fact there are other products available which function the same. This is my own design which is a fair bit cheaper than the current Dual setups.

Once final thing, please bear in mind this is a VERY early prototype atm and still in testing. More than likely there will be a few changes along the way, but updates will be regular (finally got my head round Cadsoft)

I've attached a 3D sample picture......
 

PS Vita Hacker SKFU on Uncovering New Security Vulnerabilities

1300°
144w ago - Since reporting on his last flaw uncovered, PlayStation Vita hacker SKFU has found a few new vulnerabilities in Sony's PS Vita handheld gaming system.

To quote via [Register or Login to view links]: Few hours ago, developer SKFU (known for his work on the PS3, but also recently for some investigations on the Vita security) posted a screenshot of his Vita showing some HTML in what is supposed to usually show official messages from Sony’s updates or packages.

Knowing SKFU's passion for everything network-related, I'm assuming he's doing some tests using some local DNS changes... or maybe he managed to put some of his own files in an official package? That would be exciting.

In previous tweets this week, he mentioned he found 2 potentially usable vulnerabilities on the Vita

VITA is back to life, since last tweet found 2 new possibile vulnerabilities. If it runs good, news in blog this evening!

That was, however, 2 days ago, and his blog wasn’t updated since then, so I’m assuming he ran into a few issues. (the “back to life” comment refers to the official...
