242w ago - Insomniac Games Community Relations Manager James Stevenson has shared a new Ratchet's Rocket: A Crack in Time's Space Gameplay video today on the PlayStation Blog.

To quote: One of our huge focus points on Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time has been exploration and replay value. This focus is highlighted by our space exploration gameplay, which allows you to fly Ratchet's ship between the planets in the game - while landing on spherical moons and completing side quests.

We put together this video with Creative Director Brian Allgeier that will give you a first look at the new space gameplay.

One of our favorite parts of space gameplay is how it really rewards you for exploring. The various spherical moons contain Zoni, which allow you to upgrade your ship's abilities and weapons, and are also required to face-off against our final uber-boss in replay mode (that's right, hardcore fans, a special boss you'll need to get beat to get the last trophy).





There's also a huge incentive to explore in that you can discover new mods for your constructo weapons. We're also really excited because the designers have created some excellent platforming and hoverbooting moons -and some of them, especially later in...

246w ago - A new video trailer is available showcasing Guitar Hero 5's new Rockfest Multiplayer in action.

Alongside it are some details from Producer Brian Bright, who described it as "a suite of new multiplayer game types in Guitar Hero 5 that can be played individually or in teams."

These different games can be strung together in a "playlist" so that each round of multiplayer involves a different goal. The "Rockfest" games include:

• "Momentum," in which all players start at medium difficulty, which increases with every 20-note streak and decreases with three missed notes.





• "Streakers," in which points are awarded only for consecutive notes in multiples of ten. "One point for the first 10 note streak, two for reaching 20, three for 30, and so on."
• "Perfectionist," in which each section of a song is scored by percentage of correct notes, with the top player receiving four points, the next best player receiving two, and third place receiving one.
• "Do or Die," which knocks a player out for the remainder of a section for missing three notes (otherwise known as the "Not Fun" variant).
• "Elimination," in which low-scoring players are eliminated...
