98w ago - Square Enix Product Manager Charles McCarter has announced today that Scarygirl is scaring her way onto PlayStation Network.
To quote: Hello PSN players! I hope that the season has been kind to you. While we're still in the tail-end of the Winter of RPGs, I'm here to share something completely different with you!
I'd like to introduce you to the newest female hero to join the Square Enix family. She's an unlikely heroine, but she's proven herself in her most recent adventure. I'm talking, of course, about Scarygirl.
But who is Scarygirl? That's a question she herself has been striving to answer. She washed ashore on an island, and was taken in by a friendly octopus named Blister.
Scarygirl knew that she was different--after all, she has one arm that's a tentacle, one arm that's a bone, and a really cool eyepatch.
Her problems started when she began having nightmares about a mysterious man. When Blister was unable to help her, he sent Scarygirl to the wise- if cryptic--Bunniguru. And, after speaking to him, she set out on a journey to discover the mystery of the man behind her nightmares.
A lot of enemies stand in her way, so she's going to have to do some fighting. But her unique arm allows her to do some rather unique attacks. Scarygirl can bash,...
110w ago - Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) Executive Director of Development Lorin Jameson has shared details today on DC Online Universe, which he states is now free to play your way on PS3!
To quote: Remember back in September when we announced that DC Universe Online was going to be Free-To-Play? Well, it's here!
Starting today you can download DCUO from the PlayStation Store for free, and play all you want with no monthly fee required. Experience the game play features that have gotten players excited about DCUO since it launched, including the intense, fast-action brawler style combat system that makes it feel more like an action game than a massive online game.
Now, you can see for yourself how DCUO offers the best of both worlds. Fight, fly, speed, battle with friends, pummel your enemies, explore the amazing locales of the DC Universe, hobnob with Wonder Woman... all for free!
We're really excited about this transition because you all have been asking us to make this change, and now we've done it - we're making DCUO accessible to so many more players.
We heard all of you out there who told us at conventions, on Facebook and elsewhere that you'd love to jump in to the game, if only it didn't have that pesky monthly fee. Well, now's your chance. With our three...
111w ago - Today Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has shared a new Uncharted 3 PS3 multiplayer experience video dubbed Way of the Iron Fist below!
To quote: Believe it or not we're now in the final week of the Subway Taste for Adventure, UNCHARTED 3's full competitive Multiplayer experience!
Not only are we in the single digits as we countdown the days until the release of UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception, but we also recently revealed our launch trailer and the final UNCHARTED 3 TV Spot. If you haven't watched those be sure to check them out!
We hope you've found your time online playing the Uncharted 3 full competitive multiplayer experience enjoyable and wanted to share a video that includes hints on how to effectively use melee, cover, evasion, aiming, and other skills while playing multiplayer. M
oves like executing stealth kills and doing an edge grab are great ways to earn medals and achieve a medal kickback quickly. You'll learn about this and much more as Robert Cogburn returns to talk about the Way of the Iron Fist (or how to use melee and other techniques to your advantage in multiplayer). Check...
113w ago - Today Playbrains Studio Director Scott Simpson has made available some new video footage and announced that beginning now Sideway: New York is live only on PSN!
To quote: In Hollywood circles, there is a well-known tradition where Steven Spielberg and George Lucas will skip town and go somewhere remote right about when they have a big movie opening.
They do this mostly for good luck, but also to avoid the press and ignore the grosses. Basically, they generally try to get their mind off of the project they've dedicated much of their recent lives to create.
I mention this because our adventure platformer Sideway: New York is all wrapped and done and will be available only on PSN as of today's PlayStation Store update. I also mention this because at this moment, a few of us here at the studio are out in Zimbabwe embarking on a new work project. (Oooh, I can just see the screaming blog headlines now: "Game Developer compares his game to Star Wars").
I mention this preamble principally because my beloved perfect record for responding to questions and comments on the PlayStation.Blog is (*sniff*) about to be sullied and...
114w ago - Today Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has announced that the Uncharted Multiplayer PS3 experience is just hours away now for fans along with sharing some video footage below!
To quote: We're just about a month away from the launch of UNCHARTED 3: Drake's Deception and I'm sure everyone's craving a Taste for Adventure.
Yes, I just said that. We've been working with our friends at SUBWAY to help satisfy these cravings with a promotion that's never been done anywhere else, ever!
