16w ago - Arrowhead Game Studios CEO and Game Director Johan Pilestedt posted up a video today at Gamescom 2013 announcing that Helldivers is coming to PS4, PS3 and PlayStation Vita in 2014.
To quote: You may know of Arrowhead Game Studios from our previous games like Magicka and today we're excited to announce that we've teamed up with Sony Computer Entertainment and Foster City Studios to create our next game!
So, for all of you out there, both new fans and old, I give you Helldivers. Built for both single-player campaigns and up to four player co-op missions, Helldivers is a top-down shooter set in a satirical and dystopian future where mankind is ruled by a managed democracy.
Of course, this world also happens to be in a perpetual war against three alien species, one of which we revealed in our Gamescom trailer!
As part of the elite unit called the Helldivers, you choose your deployment zone and dive into battle on procedurally-generated battlefields. Once there, utilize overpowered weapons and Stratagems to defeat the enemies of mankind.
Working together as a team will be vital, whether calling in strikes or placing weapons, each action must be totally synchronized to achieve objectives....
16w ago - Housemarque's Mikael Haveri has officially introduced Resogun today at Gamescom 2013, the new PS4 / PlayStation 4 exclusive game!
To quote: Hiya. We are a team of game developers from a company called Housemarque, based in Helsinki, Finland.
You might have heard of us before, especially if you're a PlayStation enthusiast: do Dead Nation, Super Stardust HD or Super Stardust Delta ring any bells?
Our first PlayStation 4 title has been in development for a while now, and getting ready for the next gen debut has been an exciting ride.
Working on the Stardust franchise over the years has been both a challenge and a privilege, but if anything it deepened our love for shoot 'em ups. Gameplay-centric games have a really special place in our hearts, and we try to keep our core audience in mind with each and every new title.
RESOGUN, our new exclusive PS4 game, adds a twist to the shooter genre, and while being very much a "spiritual successor" to the Stardust series, it doesn't shy away from remixing ideas and influences of classic arcade titles such as Defender, Data Storm, or Japanese shmups like DoDonPachi and Death Smiles.
RESOGUN is an intense, fast-pace shooter that expands our love for the genre and represents a sort of culmination of all...

To quote: Hello! We're Mare and Raigan from Metanet Software, and we're really excited to finally be able to announce that N++ will be coming to PS4!
One of the requests we get most frequently is a version of N for PlayStation, so we're delighted to reveal that yes, it's happening! And it's gonna be great.
If you haven't heard of us, we're the creators of N, N+ and now the upcoming N++. If you want to read more about those games, check out this post about their backstory.
Next year will mark the 10-year anniversary of N, which should tell you that we've been working on this series for a very long time. We've learned a lot about N over the years, and now it's time for us to take all the loose ends, crazy experiments, and things we never got a chance to do, and combine them all into one final version. Our goal is for this to be the definitive version, the one which we ourselves would want to play over all other versions: N++.
We can't wait to say more! In the meantime, the teaser trailer above should...

16w ago - Telltale Games Community Lead Laura Perusco shared a video today announcing that The Walking Dead on PlayStation Vita is officially out tomorrow!
To quote: Antsy to get your hands on The Walking Dead for PS Vita? The wait is over!
Look out for PS Vita versions of all five episodes of The Walking Dead Season One, PLUS the special 400 Days DLC episode, in the PlayStation Store tomorrow (The bundle will also be available!).
This version is an awesome way to experience The Walking Dead, whether you're dipping your toe into the water for the first time, or looking to catch up on any episodes you might have missed. Even if you've already played through the whole season on PS3, there's an additional set of Trophies for playing the series on PS Vita.
We've even added some special features just for PS Vita: you can play with analog controls and face buttons, or get a little more intimate with the interaction by switching to touchscreen only.
Remember, fans of the series should keep those save files, because Season Two is expected to hit PS Vita later this year as well. Hope you're ready for the portable undead onslaught!
