Muse Games Announces Gun of Icarus Online is Coming to PS4

58w ago - Muse Games Team Lead Howard Tsao announced today that Gun of Icarus Online is coming to the PS4 console with details below.

To quote: To have the opportunity to bring Guns of Icarus Online to PS4 is a dream come true for us. We are [Register or Login to view links], a small studio in New York City where Guns of Icarus Online has been our baby and our life for almost 3 years.

What if you took the thrilling moments of using those big mounted turrets in shooters and made it the core of a game? You blowing stuff up with this mammoth artillery or heavy machine gun, mowing down lines of enemies.

What if, instead of being alone, you were placed in an enclosed space with 3 other people on an airship in the sky, bringing down enemies, triumphing, and perishing together, as a single entity? Coordinating which guns to man, what needs repairs, all hell breaking loose on deck as other ships are torn apart around you.

In Guns of Icarus Online, you and your crew slip into specific roles to steer the ship in and out of combat, hop on big guns to take out enemies, and make desperate repairs in hopes you survive another encounter with an airship that approaches you from beyond the horizon.

We started this journey on napkins and notepads. We wanted to push the boundary...
 

Introducing Resogun, the New PS4 / PlayStation 4 Exclusive Game

50°
58w 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...
 

Bloober Games: Behind Basement Crawl for PS4 / PlayStation 4

50°
61w ago - Bloober Games Creative Director and Vice-President Peter Bielatowicz goes behind Basement Crawl for PS4 / PlayStation 4 today with details below, as follows:

Hello fellow gamers! I wanted to give you some information about a game we are currently developing for the PS4 launch window - Basement Crawl.

Gameplay-wise, Basement Crawl is a maze-based action game with some strategic elements. Our main inspirations were old classics like Spy vs. Spy and Bomberman, and gameplay revolves around setting up traps (self-detonated or activated by characters approaching it or stepping on it without noticing) to hurt other players.

It's focused on multiplayer, but basic single player campaigns with bots to fill in for missing characters will be available too.

While our inspirations go back to the retro classics, we are making a game up-to-date with the competition. It goes from the audio-visuals - Basement Crawl will be 2.5D game with dynamic cameras - to the game modes, characters and mechanics.

We felt that many games nowadays are dependent on character development or luck and randomness, so we designed Basement Crawl to exclude the luck factor and remove the dependence on leveling-up characters.

We want to make Basement Crawl as skill-based as possible...

70w ago - Following up on their previous confirmation that the PlayStation 4 / PS4 console won't block used games, some top Sony employees have also responded to the [Register or Login to view links] movement (hashtags #PS4NoDRM and #PS4USEDGAMES) to accept used video games and remove DRM (digital rights management) protection from them.

The movement started (via neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=568033) with the intended goal being to convince Sony not to take the same route as Microsoft with the PS4. They also want people to tell Sony that the PlayStation 4 should be region free and have free online play.

Below are some excerpts from some high-ranking Sony staffers revealing that the company is listening to consumers and gamers alike, as follows:

John Koller, the head of Sony Hardware Marketing commented (twitter.com/jpkoller): This is why I love PlayStation fans- the passion bucket overflows #playstation

While Nick Accordino, an SCEA producer, added (twitter.com/Nikoro): Humbled by the outpouring of passionate PlayStation fans and their willingness to talk to us directly. Please know that we hear you. <3

Sony Confirms PlayStation 4 / PS4 Won't Block Second-hand Used Games

1100°
84w ago - Following up on yesterday's PlayStation 4 / PS4 announcement and PlayStation 4 / PS4 trailer videos, today Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that PlayStation 4 / PS4 won't block the use of second-hand (used) games.

To quote from Eurogamer (linked above): "Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has told Eurogamer that PlayStation 4 will not block the use of second-hand games, contrary to various reports, speculation and even a Sony patent unearthed last month.

I sat down with Yoshida a few hours after the PS4 reveal tonight and one of the first things I asked was whether used games would be blocked.

"Do you want us to do that?" he asked.

No, I said. I think, if you buy something on a disc, that you have a kind of moral contract with the person you've bought it from that you retain some of that value and you can pass it on.

Do you agree, I asked?

"Yes. That's the general expectation by consumers," said Yoshida. "They purchase physical form, they want to use it everywhere, right? So that's...
