I am truly excited that it's finally available and you can all play it now. Today, I want to talk about the different characters in The Saboteur.
Because the game is very story driven, it was extremely important to us to have a good solid cast of characters for Sean to interact with along the way while trying to get revenge on Dierker (if you're confused by what all that means, see my previous posts).
Our mantra for creating our cast of characters was "everyone has a problem." This was important because it meant we had to create back stories for all the characters to give them grounding and purpose in the world of The Saboteur. While we have a lot of different characters in the game, there are some really key players you should know about.
Jules - Jules is one of the most important characters in the game because his death is the ultimate motivating factor for Sean's romp across occupied France killing Nazis. It was a big risk to take to count on delivering Jules as a character. We hope the player likes him so...

Earlier this year at E3, we had the opportunity to introduce everyone to a brand-new old-school arcade style shooter, Gravity Crash.
Well, I'm here to let you know that Gravity Crash will be available on PlayStation Store today for $9.99!
Just to give you a little background info, Gravity Crash combines vintage arcade shooter gameplay with striking HD vector graphics running in 1080p at 60 frames per second.
Piloting a small craft armed with an arsenal of main and special weapons, a rechargeable shield and a carefully watched fuel gauge, players battle gravity and inertia through 35 levels that each feature environmental dangers, enemies and other obstacles. Along the way, players will encounter volcanic eruptions, winding caverns and bodies of water in their pursuit to complete their mission.
But wait, there's more. You can create your own levels and share them with friends! Here to talk to you more about it is my colleague, Stewart Gilray, CEO of the development studio, Just Add Water, to give you the low-down.
210w ago - Today Madden NFL Arcade Designer Danny Doeberling has shared a video of Madden NFL Arcade for PS3 and revealed that it's now available via PSN.
To quote: The game is launching today on PSN, so let me fill you on some details to get you excited.
Madden NFL Arcade is a fast-paced 5-on-5 football game with depth for both casual and hardcore fans alike. We tried to make the game accessible by simplifying the playcall and giving users a pared-down arcade specific control style.
We feel that we've created an opportunity to pull off some big moves on the gridiron with more ease than ever before in a Madden game. Gone are the special teams, with a major focus on big hits and big plays. Our traditional Madden fans will feel right at home as we kept the traditional well-polished Madden football engine, and allowed for the user to have the option of the standard PS3 control scheme they are accustomed to.
What really sets the game apart though is the Game Changers that are distributed during the course of the play. And there are some off-the-wall ones too: decoy passing, frozen players, extra downs...why not? Don't think you can score? Use the entourage and your entire offensive line shows up as a convoy to the end zone.
