16w ago - Polytron Producer Marie-Christine Bourdua announced today that Fez is set to melt minds on PS4, PlayStation Vita and PS3 platforms!
To quote: Hi there! My name is Marie-Christine Bourdua, producer at Polytron, and I'm here today to announce that Fez is coming soon to PS Vita, PS3 and PS4. Making Fez happen has been such an incredible journey, and we are truly thrilled to see our game come to PlayStation platforms.
Fez development started six and a half years ago with Phil Fish's ideas and Renaud Bedard's programming skills. The Montreal-based studio was (and still is) very small, but very ambitious.
Only 100 days into development, we submitted a Fez prototype to the 2008 Independent Games Festival, and were awarded the Visual Arts award, which was a huge public awareness and morale boost. But we still had a whole game to make!
We failed to meet a million deadlines and had to overcome financial obstacles, but met amazing collaborators along the way, like the game's composer, Rich Vreeland (aka Disasterpeace), and outstanding pixel artist Paul Robertson.
The game was taking shape, had a unique atmosphere and aura of mystery that we knew would find fans. As we were wrapping up development, James Swirsky and Lisanne Pajot (makers of the Sundance-nominated...

To quote: Saints Row IV arrives on PS3 and PSN this week. The head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started.
Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation.
Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak's mental grasp. Escape the simulation that's trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.
As a Cross Buy and Cross Play title on PS3 and PS Vita, Divekick distills the essence of the fighting genre into a two-button, no-joystick, rage-inducing form that can be enjoyed by anyone. You have no traditional directional movement.
Enjoy this week's The Drop!

The stage is set, and the show's about to begin for Puppeteer! I'm excited to share some of my craziness with you today.
But, before Puppeteer is released across the globe, I wanted to provide a glimpse of whom our friend, Kutaro, is really up against as he battles the Moon Bear King's (MBK) Generals. So, take a look below and get acquainted with six of the 13 bosses from Puppeteer.
Can't picture yourself going up against the Generals? No need to worry! We created these lovely snippets showcasing the magic you will soon experience. Make sure to check back soon to see the final six Generals!
Appearance: A gigantic tiger with a Moonstone shard for his left canine. His tail ends with a spiked iron ball, like a mace.
Personality: A true paper tiger, kowtowing to the tough, and browbeating the weak. Reflecting his personality, General Tiger has a slightly lewd turn of phrase. Earlier in his life, he was a complete coward.
Relationships: Tiger is overawed and obsequious to the Moon Bear King to an unnecessary degree. He treats the Witch, Ying Yang, the puppets, and the grubs with...
