Video: PSN Exclusive Rochard in Action at Fantastic Fest 2011

100°
158w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has posted up some new video footage today on PSN Exclusive Rochard in action at Fantastic Fest 2011.

To quote: We have showcased PSN exclusive Rochard before - we examined its gravity-based side-scrolling gameplay and Team Fortress-esque aesthetic in previous posts.

But it wasn't until the game was right in front of me at [Register or Login to view links] that the premise, art style, and gameplay all came together into a coherent whole. Being able to control your character and the gravity of the entire level takes a bit of getting used to, but after a few minutes, it clicks.

While [Register or Login to view links] is packed with clever puzzles, it's also very much an action game. See for yourself in our new video walkthrough above, which we shot at our Fantastic Fest community meetup and where Blog readers got their hands all over a host of upcoming PSN and PS3 games.





Watching Rochard in action, I was struck by the large number of ways you could dispose of enemies and obstacles: the physics-based g-lifter, the scorching plasma gun, melee blows - even dropping a box on an unsuspecting enemy's head (netting you a "Death From...
 

PS3 Exclusive Elevator Action Deluxe Ascends Tomorrow on PSN

400°
161w ago - Today Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has announced that PS3 exclusive title Elevator Action Deluxe ascends to PSN tomorrow!

To quote: Back in the 80s, it wasn't uncommon for restaurants to have a lone arcade cabinet sitting by the entrance. I've got fond, but hazy memories of a suburban Philadelphia diner where I discovered an innovative title called [Register or Login to view links]. I also recall a bacon cheeseburger...

In the 80s, most games confined you to a simple side-scrolling plane - it was akin to being on rails. Elavator Action enabled you to traverse a building vertically. It was a revelation. It was true freedom. It was, well, a different time.

So when I learned that Elevator Action Deluxe was on its way exclusively to the PlayStation Network, my nostalgia was inflamed. With the game available tomorrow, Square Enix offered me the chance to ask a few questions of Producer Yosuke Tsuda.

PlayStation.Blog: Would you categorize Elevator Action for PSN as a straight remake or more of a reinterpretation?

Yosuke Tsuda, Producer, Elevator Action Deluxe: We began the development process based on three concepts:

• Have visuals that allow people to instantly recognize this as...
 

Video: SSX on PlayStation 3, PS3-Exclusive Mount Fuji Level

200°
172w ago - Today SSX Creative Director Todd Batty has shared an E3 2011 video detailing the use of NASA satellite maps to create new SSX runs and footage of the PS3-exclusive Mount Fuji level!

To quote: To be honest, I was completely overwhelmed by the reaction to [Register or Login to view links] coming out of E3.

In the early days of this project, there was a lot of debate internally at [Register or Login to view links] about how many SSX fans still existed and how much interest remained in the market for games like SSX, and even some of the games we have taken further inspiration from such as Burnout and old-school Tony Hawk.

The huge reaction to our launch trailer at the [Register or Login to view links]'s was the first indication that the SSX fan base was still very much alive and as passionate as ever, but actually meeting some of these people and seeing their reaction to what we are building first-hand was truly inspirational.





Of course, with that passion comes a lot of strong opinions on what else we should be adding to the game or bringing back from the old games. We know we can't possibly please everyone, but our fans should know that we are listening to everything they say and that the...

100°
181w ago - Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has unveiled a video today showcasing the new Sorcerer's Lair Table for ZEN Pinball on PSN.

To quote: Today we are unveiling Sorcerer's Lair, a brand new ZEN Pinball table! It has been awhile since our last blog post, but we hope you have been enjoying [Register or Login to view links] and keeping your skills sharp on other [Register or Login to view links] tables.

All eight of our studio pinball teams have been hard at work over the past few months developing new tables.

Set in an ancient Citadel that is controlled by an evil Sorcerer, you play as a brother and sister pair who find themselves caught in the Sorcerer's spells and traps.

It is up to you and your ghost sidekick, Whisper, to take down skeletons, spiders and ghosts as you try to defeat the Sorcerer and restore peace to the Citadel.





This fantasy themed table is full of hidden modes and secret unlocks, so it will take some time to really discover the intricacies of Sorcerer's Lair.

As you have come to expect from every ZEN Pinball table, there is no shortage of interactive 3D objects, multiple modes of play, secret unlocks, online multiplayer competition...
