128w ago - Vanguard Games Game Designer Nikki Kuppens has announced that Gatling Gears is now available on PlayStation Network and shared a video trailer for the PSN title.
To quote: I'm here to introduce our newest game, Gatling Gears, which is available on PSN right now! Gatling Gears is an intense twin-stick shooter in which you control a heavily armed mech.
We call them "walkers" and they're a very iconic part of Mistbound, the world you will travel through in Gatling Gears. As veteran walker pilot Max Brawley, you're going to have to put an end to the Empire's destructive campaign for Mistbound's valuable resources.
To do that, you will have to master the two basic principles of walker operation: shooting and dodging. You'll be flooded with waves and waves of enemies, so using your weapons effectively is key to your survival.
The Gatling gun is useful against weaker enemies, but has a limited range. A cannon shell does more damage, but is harder to aim. Grenades can be carefully targeted and do a lot of damage, but will take a while to reach their target. If things get out of hand (and they will!) detonating your Spark Bomb will send an electrified shock wave across the entire screen.

128w ago - Sony Online Communities Manager Phil Priston has announced today that Invizimals The Lost Tribes will be coming to PSN this November.
To quote: I'm pleased to announce that we will be releasing our third game in the successful Invizimals series this November, entitled Invizimals The Lost Tribes.
