PIX the CAT Announced for PS4 and PS Vita by Pastagames

50°
2w ago - Pastagames Final Boss Fabien Delpiano announced today that PIX the CAT is coming to PS4 and PS Vita consoles.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi everyone! PIX the CAT is coming to PS4 and PS Vita with a mission: to make your thumbs sore! After Pix'n Love - Rush (PS Minis), the infamous blue cat is back for an intense scoring arcade game loaded with surprises.

Writing these words means the world to us. It means that the game we've been making for the last three years is coming out!

Our strategy at Pastagames is simple: gather XP and gold by making cool games for others (Rayman Jungle Run, Panzer Bimbo, AR Rescue...) then spend it all on our homegrown productions. We empty the bank account and start the cycle over.

PIX the CAT is the game that saw the most cycles. For the first time in years, we're playing it solo! No publishing or editing to hold us back from our many kinks and obsessions! Naturally, we've ended up being obsessed and kinky about everything, even the new Pastagames website. But most of all about getting players sucked into the game from head to toe.

The Arcade gameplay comes from our initial desire to build a hectic 2D level-based scoring game that offers constant flow without any kind of scrolling. We wanted the blue cat to ride the maze and...
 

The Past, Present, and Future of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

200°
53w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe French Community Manager Aurelie Reman shared an interview today covering the past, present, and future of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn below.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] launches tomorrow on PS3. To celebrate the launch, PlayStation.Blog sat down with Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida to talk over A Realm Reborn's long gestation and epic ambitions.

PlayStation.Blog: Which element of A Realm Reborn is most going to surprise PlayStation players?

Naoki Yoshida: I think one of the big things will be the amazing graphics, which really push the limits of PS3's technical capabilities, as well as the fact that this is an MMORPG experience. Also, MMORPGs are most usually controlled using a keyboard and mouse, but our Cross Hot Bar system we've developed specifically for the DualShock allows for smooth and exciting play, so that's another area of interest for PS3 players.

PSB: What improvements have you made since the original PC release of Final Fantasy XIV?

Yoshida: I think that improvements can be roughly split into three areas: to regain the trust of the players, to fundamentally rebuild the game experience from the ground up, and - most...
 

Google Chrome and Firefox Speeds Blow Past IE and Opera!

250°
291w ago - ZDNet Australia recently [Register or Login to view links] updated browser speeds, as measured by the industry-standard [Register or Login to view links] JavaScript test, and the results should give pause to proprietary-browser makers Microsoft and Opera Software:

Every open-source browser completely obliterated the proprietary browsers in terms of performance, and by a huge margin.

The test compared Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 Release Candidate 1, Opera 10.00 Alpha, Firefox 3.1b1, Chrome 2.0.158.0, and the WebKit r40220 developer project included in Chrome and Apple's Safari.

[Register or Login to view links] (along with WebKit) left the proprietary competition in the dust:

Maybe there's something in the open-source water, after all, that makes those open-source browsers grow up big and strong. IE 8? Well, let's just say that it has a lot of work to do to catch up.
 

Will the XBox 360 Survive Past Christmas?

50°
308w ago - The red rings of death issue simply refuses to go away for Microsoft, and no matter how much it reduces the cost and extends the warranty one simple question remains: will the Xbox 360 ever be fit for purpose?

I guess that the headline should have read 'Will my Xbox 360 survive past Christmas?' given that I intend to use my own experience of Xbox 360 ownership to highlight that, no matter how hard Microsoft tries to convince the public differently, it just cannot seem to fix the hardware problems users of the Xbox 360 face.

Are you sitting comfortably? Great, then I will begin. My story starts almost exactly a year ago in October 2007, with a badgered father giving in to the requests of his son to buy an Xbox 360.

After doing some research, the newly released Xbox 360 Elite seemed to be the perfect choice as it was meant to have fixed the dreaded red rings of death problem. It was also black, and I like black gadgets when it comes to audio-visual stuff.

So it was that the considerable investment in the Xbox 360 took hold. There was the inevitable Halo 3, followed by Guitar Heroes in various flavours, some karaoke affairs, and ultimately a Rock Band. Along the way I fell into a serious GTA IV habit, I confess.

All was well in the Winder household. Even 'the wife' who...
