104w ago - Telltale Games Writer and Designer Jake Rodkin has announced today that The Walking Dead video game series will be lurching on PSN Tuesday with pre-purchase details below.

To quote: I'm Jake from Telltale Games and I'm clawing my way to bring you up to speed with our latest game series.

While some of our previous games like Back to the Future: The Game have been pretty light-hearted, we couldn't have gone darker than our next project, a five part episodic series based on Robert Kirkman's Eisner award-winning comic book series, The Walking Dead.

First, the good news: The first episode of The Walking Dead, 'A New Day,' will arrive on PSN this Tuesday, April 24th. Each episode will cost $4.99 on the PlayStation Store, and you'll be able to pre-purchase the entire five-episode season for $19.99 to save $4.99 off of the total season price and nab an exclusive PS3 premium theme (head to the bottom of the post for more details).

Not only is The Walking Dead game darker and more violent than anything the studio has done before, but it also provides a very different gameplay experience compared to our previous games.

One major way that the game differs from previous...
 

Sony Announces Primal: PS2 Cult Classic Comes to PSN Tuesday

100°
112w ago - Sony Creative Director Chris Sorrell has announced today that the PS2 cult classic Primal is coming to PSN on Tuesday.

To quote: Primal grew from a warm, happy, and long-lost place where we were insanely fortunate enough to have an amazing team, an exciting new platform to build for (PlayStation 2!), and the freedom to make the game we wanted to make.

Core influences were some of the awesome TV shows of the day: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Dark Angel to name the foremost. We wanted to build a game that captured the vibe of these shows while also showing off some of the cool technical and artistic things we thought we could achieve with the (then) new PS2.

The premise was a classic: pretty girl meets gargoyle, explores demon worlds, acquires demonic powers, and (spoiler!) has to kill her boyfriend to save the universe.

We were lucky to hook up with our dream voice cast to bring these characters to life - Hudson Leick (best known from the Xena: Warrior Princess) and the fantastic and sadly missed Andreas Katsulas (whose work on Babylon 5 I so admired).

Together they brought a truly unusual warmth to our main characters that stood out at the time, and remains quite special even to this day.

Musically our game world needed some 'bite',...
 

Video: Choplifter HD Hits PS3 on PSN Tuesday, Zombies Included

119w ago - Leader inXile CEO Brian Fargo has announced today alongside a video trailer that Choplifter HD will be hitting PS3 on PSN Tuesday and includes zombies!

To quote: I really get a kick out of the fact that I am now considered an "indie" again after all these years.

I have been making games for nearly 30 years, having built a top-five PC publishing house called Interplay around such major franchises as The Bard's Tale, Wasteland, Baldur's Gate, Fallout, Descent and more.

In the early days, I developed games for other companies and moved up the food chain to become a publisher so that I could make games "my way."

And here I sit, again readying our first major release in Choplifter HD as a digital publisher and having created the game the way I wanted. Our company tagline at Interplay was "By Gamers. For Gamers" and it is those same values we used in creating Choplifter HD.

Choplifter was a very important game when it was originally released back in 1982 and achieved #1 status at the time. Dan Gorlin, the original creator, really understood the humanness of saving little people from tough situations.

It was a great action game for sure, but there was something about saving those little guys. And certainly...

122w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today alongside a new video trailer that Trine 2 is coming to PS3 on PSN next Tuesday.

To quote: We're very excited to share with you that Trine 2, sequel to one of the highest-rated PlayStation Network games of all time, is coming to the PlayStation Store next Tuesday, December 20th. But first: HAMMERTIME!

"What is Trine 2?" you ask, only to suddenly be filled with a powerful rush of guilt at your lack of Trine-related knowledge. "We'll tell you," we reply unnecessarily, clearly prepared to offer that information with or without your consent.

Trine 2 is a three-player cooperative action-packed physics-based platformer set in a lush fantasy world of cornea-searing colorful and beauty.

Played from a side-scrolling 2D perspective (but breathtakingly rendered with polygons), gamers take control of one of three highly specialized characters – Pontius, the slow yet mighty knight; Zoya, the agile thief; or Amadeus, the crafty wizard - and guide them through puzzles and numerous foes.

In addition to a host of improvements, additions, and tweaks over the original Trine, this much-anticipated sequel introduces highly anticipated online multiplayer, letting friends...

124w ago - DICE Product Manager Tommy Rydling has announced today that Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand for PlayStation 3 hits PSN Tuesday with new guns, vehicles and assignments.

Below are the details, to quote: I hope you are ready to go Back to Karkand, as we are releasing our first Battlefield 3 expansion pack Tuesday, December 6th on PlayStation 3 in America and Europe - a week early for PlayStation customers!

You also get three vehicles (the VSTOL fighter jet, Desert Buggy, and an APC), ten new weapons that you can bring back to the base game, a new layer of persistence with our all-new Assignments, plus five shiny Trophies.

The maps we chose for this expansion pack are all classic fan favorites: Wake Island, Sharqi Peninsula, Gulf of Oman, and Strike at Karkand (from where the expansion pack got its name). These maps are about all-out warfare in a variety of settings and have collectedly been played literally billions of times by our players.

Now, they are due for a reimagining with the power of the Frostbite 2 engine. This allows us do things like take the level of destruction to ridiculous heights. You can...
