FLOCK! for PS3 Hits PlayStation Network on April 9, 2009

100°
290w ago - Today Capcom's John Diamonon announced that FLOCK! for PS3 will be hitting Sony's PlayStation Network on April 9, 2009.

To quote: The real reason I'm here is to let you know that next Thursday, FLOCK! finally arrives on PSN. Soon you'll be able to manipulate cute, cuddly animals with the help of your trusty UFO. You don't even have to be in a farm to flock sheep, Capcom is giving you the ability to do this in the privacy of your own home. You can even call a friend over and flock.

If you've never herd of FLOCK! before, here's a video with the beautiful Veronica Belmont and one the folks at Capcom going over some of the cool features in the game (I'm loving the outfit Veronica!).





Did I mention trophy and in-game XMB music support? Another cool feature is the level editor where you can create your own plushy environments and share them online.

There's also a rating system where you can praise the brilliant work of others, or pan some of the more awkward levels that are made available (Giving fans creative freedom is not always a good thing).

So, if you've been keeping up with my blogs, I've been hinting for months about a cool surprise for PSN gamers this year. Well, stay tuned. I'm ready to talk...
 

Comet Crash Hits PSN Tomorrow for PlayStation 3 Users

50°
290w ago - Pelfast President John Bates has announced that Comet Crash is hitting Sony's PlayStation Network tomorrow. To quote:

The inspiration for [Register or Login to view links] comes from traditional tower defense games, but we think it's time for some exciting twists.

Generally in tower defense games, you build up weapons to protect your base from oncoming rushes of enemies. Killing enemy swarms is a lot of fun, but isn't it time to take out the nest? In Comet Crash, you use a variety of weapons to defend against enemy rushes, and you get the chance to fight back. The real objective is to rush the enemy base with your own offensive army!





In the Campaign, your goal is to take control of four different comets that alien forces have sent to wreak havoc on your home planet. To save your planet, you'll have to capture and secure each comet.

The alien civilization has advanced technologies that you gain access to as you defeat them. The Campaign supports up to 3 players for offline co-op play and offers three difficulty levels: Beginner, Casual, and Ranked. Between collecting resources, building up armies, defending your base, and determining your winning strategy, there is never a dull moment!

PAIN PS3 Smack Pack Hits PSN, Includes Darts & Fortress Modes

50°
292w ago - Today PAIN Associate Producer Jason Coker announced news of the incoming PAIN Smack Pack, which includes both Darts and Fortress Modes. To quote:

We're about to drop the Smack Pack on you (sold separately), which includes the Darts and Fortress game Modes. As I'm sure you know, traditional Darts wouldn't be suitable for PAIN. We wouldn't dare make something as simple as launching a character into an oversized dartboard.

Instead, you have to launch you character toward a giant sticky billboard with multiple bullseyes painted on it, in the process grabbing another character (or bomb) and chucking it at the billboard. Sounds simple enough, eh?

Oh, I forgot to mention the fact that your opponents have distractions to jack you up during your flight to the billboard. It makes it even more satisfying to clear the distractions and pull off a bullseye, so I hope your game is in order.

Fortress is the other half of the Smack Pack, and it pits you against up to three opponents, each of you with a giant fortress on a floating platform in the sky. On offense, your task is to aim at an opponent's fortress, launch and grab an exploding object, and chuck it at their fortress to inflict maximum damage.

Every bit of damage you do costs that player points, and when...
