45w ago - Today Creative Lead Angel Gonzalez has posted up a fresh video on The Walking Dead video game spotlighting both Stealth and Scent for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Picture this: you're moving through an abandoned convenience store in the middle of the day, and light is pouring in through the front windows.
The shelves have been ransacked and only a few items remain. You stop to investigate a roll of bandages on the shelf and, feeling these will come in handy later, you grab them and turn to leave.
A Walker grabs you and leans in for a taste of flesh! You struggle against his weight but can't quite fight him off. His rancid breath is thick in the air between you as his mouth opens for a bite.
Mustering all of your strength you push just hard enough to get a few inches of separation and then... You jam the blade of your knife through his temple and he slumps to the ground at your feet amid an explosion of blood and brain!
After taking a final look around, you see that no others Walkers realize you're there. You slip out of the store and continue toward your destination.
This is the world of The Walking Dead, a world where you can never feel safe because any moment may be your last. This is life, dealing with the constant threat of the...
45w ago - Sony Santa Monica Studio Community Strategist Aaron Kaufman has posted up a video today showcasing the monsters of God of War: Ascension Polyphemus on PS3.
To quote: As we begin the journey to the launch of God of War: Ascension on March 12, 2013, we want to further explore all aspects of the God of War universe to give you deeper insight into the creation, lore, design, and gameplay that's being poured into the game. Welcome to our first "Monsters of Ascension" feature.
In God of War: Ascension, we are introducing an epic, unprecedented multiplayer experience. You will become a Champion of the Gods, but not before you encounter and conquer one of the biggest Titans seen in the entire God of War series - Polyphemus.
The Titan cyclops Polyphemus - the gargantuan one-eyed son of Poseidon - is a brutal boss on our desert multiplayer map. He will literally crush you and your foes (repeatedly) until you earn enough favor from the Gods to be granted the Spear of Olympus - the only known weapon that can destroy Polyphemus.
I sat down with Izzy Medrano, Lead Concept Artist for God of War: Ascension, to discuss his contributions to the...

53w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has posted up a cutscene video trailer today on the upcoming PS3 title The Last of Us dubbed The Sky Has Turned Grey below.
To quote: It's been nearly six months since we announced The Last of Us and development has been a bustling beehive of activity.
If you picked up the March 2012 issue of Game Informer or saw any of the online coverage, you might have read about Joel and Ellie's visit to an abandoned city.
Today, we are excited to share a very fresh, very provocative video that should answer some of your questions about what went down inside those city walls. You'll get an idea of what it takes to be a survivor in Joel and Ellie's heartless new world.
Joel and Ellie won't have an easy road ahead of them. Their path across the US will intersect with other survivors, some of whom won't be friendly. In this scene set to the somber chords of Hank Williams, Sr., Joel and Ellie continue their journey west in a battered pickup truck.
As they drive towards the next destination on their route, and hopefully a place to find critical...
