189w ago - PlayStation Network Sr Director Susan Panico has put together a handy FAQ of their ever-changing PlayStation Network today, as follows:

We've also shared a new episode of The Tester 2 each week and just last week we announced a number of new games on PlayStation Home, as we marked the 2-year anniversary of the platform.

And, in addition to the PSN updates we've shared, there have also been a number of new updates for PlayStation Plus subscribers and new features in the PlayStation Rewards program.

We recently surpassed 60 million registered accounts worldwide - an increase of 53% in North America in just the last year - and we continue to see our users soak up the new entertainment content offerings.

195w ago - Big Sandwich Games Design Director Tyler Sigman confirmed that Hoard arrives on PSN tomorrow, and shared details on how to train your dragon today for fans alongside a PS3 trophy list.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] drops tomorrow on PSN, so it's time you start thinking about tuning up your treasure-hunting skills! Here are a few tips to help you get started on your path to becoming a great dragon and racking up some impressive scores:

• Preserve your score multiplier. You lose your score multiplier whenever you are wounded to zero health, and also whenever a thief finishes stealing from your hoard. If you want to earn Gold ratings on maps, you have to avoid losing your score multiplier too much. It's better to fly home and heal before getting wounded all the way to zero. And always keep an eye out for those sneaky burglers.
• Armor up for safety! The denizens of the realm are not friendly. Knights and archers make for challenging foes when they come in groups. While upgrading Speed and Fire Breath are sexy, improving your Armor can be key to good scores. If you find yourself constantly getting injured and sent back to your hoard, you probably need tougher scales! Having a few extra hit points means you can make mistakes and not get punished for it.

To quote: The video game I've been working on and enjoying lately is [Register or Login to view links], an aerial combat game that put me through a rollercoaster ride with fireworks going off all around.

From the first cinematic, I got a glimpse of the Tom Clancy storyline: I was in the middle of a world conspiracy with terrorists threatening to use stolen nukes against whoever doesn't meet their demands. So I got comfortable in my chair and ready to dispense some justice and peace with my trigger finger.

The first mission started me off easy, with a take-off from an airbase to inspect the area around. Piece of cake! Full throttle, pitch up and the sky was the limit!





But I would later find out that landing is not a piece of said cake, especially when attempting it at night on an aircraft carrier, even with the onboard computer helping me a little. And it seared a mental note into my brain: always make sure to lower the landing gear before attempting to touch down....
