177w ago - Big Sandwich Games Design Director Tyler Sigman has announced news of a new Hoard patch coming to PSN alongside a video trailer and free new level details today, as follows:

It's been just over two weeks since HOARD released, and thousands of gamers have been getting their flame on while toasting villages, incinerating knights, crisping thieves, and kidnapping the occasional princess!

Reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, with many surprised at just how addictive and deep the dragon "stratecade" (strategy arcade) experience is.

However, the game was not entirely without its rough edges, and there are a few issues we've been monitoring which need a little tweaking.

Your feedback at HOARDgame.com has been very important to us, and we're happy to confirm that we'll be addressing most of those issues in an upcoming patch!





The patch will include:

• Eye Strain Begone – We'll be increasing tutorial and badge text size for less squintyness. 20/10 vision no longer required!
• Lasting Friendship – The multiplayer lobby will now be persistent. After finishing a game, you'll return to the game setup lobby so you can easily play again with...

Dead Space Ignition Hits PSN, Free with Dead Space 2 Pre-Order

183w ago - Producer Rich Briggs has announced today that Dead Space Ignition hits PSN tomorrow, and confirmed it's free for those who pre-order Dead Space 2.

To quote: Dead Space Ignition will be available for download starting tomorrow, and it will be completely free for anyone who pre-orders Dead Space 2.

This makes the launch even more exciting for us, and I'm happy to have the chance to tell you more about it.

When we created Dead Space we wanted to establish a living, breathing, and terrifying universe. As we built this universe, we used the comic series and animated feature to expand the core story from the game. We're taking this to the next level with Dead Space Ignition.

We're excited about Dead Space Ignition because it brings the franchise to downloadable arcade games for the very first time, with a completely new experience. By combining interactive comic storytelling with three unique arcade games, we can tell a new Dead Space story in a fast-paced, accessible manner.

Before Isaac Clarke begins his adventure on The Sprawl in Dead Space 2, a Necromorph outbreak occurs, and Dead Space Ignition lets you witness the horror first-hand. And you'll be able to choose your own adventure along the way, as Ignition offers four unique endings.

You'll...
