125w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska has posted up a video trailer today announcing that One Epic Game is hitting PSN tomorrow.
To quote: My name is Jakub from Grip Games, the folks who gave you MiniSquadron and 5-in-1 Arcade Hits, and I'd like to tell you about our next project - One Epic Game, which is now being released via PlayStation Store tomorrow.
All of gaming's most notorious stereotypes finally make an appearance in one epic game - aliens, zombies, fantasy, World War II and nuclear wasteland. One Epic Game puts you in the shoes of Alpha Dog, another muscular, one dimensional action hero with the task to negotiate with the enemies the only way they understand - a bullet in the brain!
As you have probably guessed by now, everything about One Epic Game is intentionally over-the-top. The name, the action, the main hero, humour... One Epic Game is a parody of all the gaming stereotypes we see in almost every action game. But it does not stop only with games, as you'll see us pay homage to some popular movies and much more.
125w ago - Hi guys, this is Condorstrike thanking PS3 NEWS for all their support and involvement in the PS3 scene, and for allowing me to announce the opening of Tortuga-Cove.com which includes my new MultiMAN Theming Tutorial WIP on our Forums.
Tortuga-Cove.com is a Web site created by Gamers for Gamers, including me and some great friends from the PS3 scene, like S4BRE, moogie, and GoTiT4FrE. We offer news and discussions about gaming in general for all consoles, but our PlayStation 3 roots are obvious; also the great developer Rogero, themer Opium2k and other great guys from different scenes are involved in this project.
I consider PS3 NEWS my home cause of their support and professionalism, so this just means I have two homes.
Also follow up on my newest app Solar, still working hard on it with no eta yet... but with Rogero's help, I might bring something new and cool to the scene... i'll keep you updated, and hope for a fast release.
125w ago - Candygun Games Managing Director Roger Joswig has announced today that Dead Block hits PlayStation Network on July 19 and has shared a video trailer for the PSN title below.
To quote: I'm writing for our small game development start-up Candygun Games based in Hamburg, Germany.
We've just finished our first original game: Dead Block - A 1950's Horror B-Movies inspired action defense game. I'm very happy to bring Dead Block to PS3 gamers via PSN on July 19th in the U.S!
Dead Block is a zombie game set in America's 1950s during the birth of rock 'n roll music – a music so bad, so evil that it summons the dead from their graves to eat brains!
Luckily, you are protected inside a building and you know how to defend yourself with blockades and traps. The game is a third-person action strategy mix with an old-school B-movie horror theme and cartoon-inspired art direction. Dead Block doesn't take itself too seriously; humor is a big part of the game's presentation.
During gameplay, you'll be trapped inside the building and you can use everything you find in order to build blockades and wicked traps. If zombies break in, players fight the intruders with smart bombs and rock 'n roll music. Single-player and up to four player split-screen is supported.
