Hands-on with Upcoming PSN Shooter Dead Nation for PS3

50°
230w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared some hands-on details of the upcoming PSN shooter Dead Nation for the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: I was itching to get my mitts on Dead Nation, the upcoming PSN shooter from the creators of Super Stardust HD. Luckily, I got some extensive play time from last week's NYC PlayStation media day. Here's what I learned.

You can upgrade your guns... a lot. Dead Nation's environments are dotted with fenced-in "safe zones" that give you a chance to catch your breath and buy supplies from a nearby gun shop.

In addition to buying health and ammo, you can purchase mods that will enhance your various weapons in different ways, depending on the gun. The mods upgrade stats such as damage, ammo capacity, firing rate, reload time, and range.

While the most potent weapon upgrades are expensive, you can pop open car trunks and chests found through the environments in order to collect cash and other useful items.

The Shotgun is devastating. The Dead Nation build I played featured three weapons – the Shotgun, SMG, and Rifle – with more to come in the final version. Early on, I decided to pour my money into repeatedly upgrading the Shotgun's damage and spread capability.

The results...

230w ago - Sony's Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared a hands-on video today spotlighting PixelJunk Shooter 2 for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

[Register or Login to view links] and Dylan Cuthbert are cooking up plenty of new tricks for PixelJunk Shooter 2, the follow-up to the 2009 PSN title that mixed retro-styled audio-visuals with progressive gameplay mechanics.

But once I picked up the controller at last week's NYC PlayStation media day, I discovered that PixelJunk Shooter 2 expands upon this formula in several key ways.

Light and dark. I quickly learned that darkness is not your friend in PixelJunk Shooter 2. Traveling though a dark area for more than a few seconds will attract invulnerable apparitions - the spectral remnants of a "lost civilization" – and almost instant death.

Faced with a long, shadowy tunnel, I turned my cannons on a nearby phosphorescent mushroom. While it bobbed like a metronome, I was able to stay within its small orb of light to pass through the tunnel unscathed.





That's when I discovered another threat lurking in the darkness: worm-like parasites that latched onto my ship's hull and slowed my movement to a crawl. Once exposed to light, the worms...

236w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has brought us all a video first look today at the new PixelJunk Shooter 2 for PS3 which is heading to PSN.

To quote: When it was released last December, PixelJunk Shooter received plaudits for its old school shooting gameplay coupled with modern elemental physics. Also, it's just plain fun.

As the first PixelJunk game with a story, it's also the first PixelJunk game with a sequel (as opposed to an "Encore").

Here are producers Deb Mars and Matt Morton with more on what Shooter 2 will bring. HINT: fan-requested feature addressed.

Q-Games Reveals PixelJunk Shooter 2 for PS3 in Full Production

50°
240w ago - Q-Games Ltd. President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert has revealed today to fans that PixelJunk Shooter 2 for PS3 is now in full production.

To quote: Well, I hope everyone has recovered from the PixelJunk sale bonanza we had last month - as far as I could tell people were buying up PixelJunk titles by the tenfold which is great!

For those that haven't already heard, PixelJunk Shooter 2 is in full production, full steam ahead, anchors away and all that... commotion to that order. I can't say much about it now, but it will have some features that are new to the [Register or Login to view links] in general and will be bigger than the first game!

We're busy implementing all the ideas that were left on the drawing board for the first game to make Shooter 2 as jam-packed full of crazy fun as possible...

I'm pretty sure we won't make a Shooter 3 because everything and the kitchen sink (probably quite literally) is going into Shooter 2. Keep your eyes glued to the Blog (in-between playing PixelJunk games of course) for more info on this in the future!

And for those who still aren't sure about the awesomeness PixelJunk Shooter really (no, really!) is, we're going to release a free demo of one of my favourite levels in the game...
