5d ago - Messhof LLC Co-founder Kristy Norindr confirmed today that Nidhogg is coming to PS Vita with Cross-Buy, Online Play, and more details below.

To quote: We are super stoked to announce that [Register or Login to view links] is coming to PS Vita, and it will be released simultaneously with the PS4 version!

It will be cross-buy, so if you grab one you'll get both the PS4 and PS Vita versions. How dope is that?!

If you haven't heard of Nidhogg yet, thats cool. Its been around the PC game world for a while, and at super awesome parties around the world. Its a two player fencing/fighting game where the ultimate goal is to get eaten by a massive pink dragon: the Nidhogg.

Nidhogg is pretty much the ultimate party game, but you can also practice in single player mode against an AI opponent or play with friends or randos online. When you inevitably have a Nidhogg party, there's a built in tournament mode for 3-8 players. We had some crazy [Register or Login to view links] tournaments at EVO.

You can also toggle a bunch of different variants on and off, or combine them for endless weirdness (baby mode + spine swords?).

Sony on How Real-life Conflict Inspired Far Cry 4 for PlayStation 4

2w ago - Sony's Tom Wallis revealed details today on how real-life conflict inspired Far Cry 4 for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 platforms.

To quote: [Register or Login to view links] is the upcoming first-person shooter from developer Ubisoft Montreal.

Set in the fictional Himalayan country of Kyrat, this nation torn apart by war draws heavily from real-world locations to make the game feel authentic.

We caught up with Mark Thompson, narrative director, and Alex Hutchinson, creative director, to find out how visiting Nepal to meet people who actually fought in the civil war helped to inspire the development of Far Cry 4.

"One of the first things we did was to write down a list of different animals to include in the game," Mark told us when we met up with the team at Ubisoft recently in Montreal.

"We also made a list of environment features we wanted. From that we looked at locations where the two would make sense, and we came to the Himalayas. We needed to find somewhere that had a history of conflict - somewhere that could be politically unstable - the kind of place that you would go to that was on the edge of the map. Places that are referred to as 'failed states.'"

Surgeon Simulator is Out Now on PlayStation 4, Gets Co-op Play

3w ago - Sony Community Manager Poppy Byron announced today that Surgeon Simulator is out now on PlayStation 4 and includes co-op play!

To quote: January 28, 2013. That was the day we put the first build of a silly little game jam project onto the Internet for anyone to play.

It was a run of the mill game jam project for me, and my fellow teammates, James Broadley, Jack Good and Luke Williams. But the aftermath saw our little medical-themed toy turn into a real grown-up full game.

The development process of [Register or Login to view links] has been like a constant game jam. We would implement our ideas without a second thought to the game's overall design.

Leaving little details like balancing damage levels and timings until later, just concentrating on what we thought would be cool or fun for the majority of time. For example, once the game was in full production, one of the features I remember implementing first was the notepad in the reception that you can draw on, not exactly essential for the game but fun to make.

This kind of unplanned structureless attitude has continued throughout the entire project. It's an extremely fun way of developing. It has its caveats and wouldn't...

3w ago - Following this weeks previous rumors, Sony Product Planning and Software Innovation Director Scott McCarthy shared official details today on the upcoming PS4 System Update to v2.00 which adds Share Play, YouTube and more features to come!

To quote: Since we first unveiled PlayStation 4 and its deep social capabilities, including the SHARE button, we've seen an outpouring of excitement from gamers.

The PS Nation has rallied around a culture focused on sharing epic gaming moments through Live From PlayStation, interactive streaming, SHAREfactory, What's New and Photo Mode in exclusive PS4 games like Infamous Second Son and The Last of Us Remastered. Let's go a step further together.

Let's go from sitting back and watching friends play to actually jumping into games remotely and sharing great experiences together in real time.

Today at the PlayStation press conference at Gamescom, we will deliver on yet another promise from the PS4 announcement and introduce Share Play, coming to PlayStation 4 later this fall.

The best way to think about Share Play is like a "virtual couch". PlayStation 4 will create an online local co-op experience by allowing...
 

Assault Android Cactus on PS4 and PS Vita: 8 Ways to Play

50°
3w ago - Witch Beam Artist / Programmer Tim Dawson announced today that Assault Android Cactus is hitting PS4 and PS Vita with 8 ways to play!

To quote: Hello! I'm Tim, the coder and art guy of Witch Beam, a three-person team making Assault Android Cactus which is heading to PS4 and PS Vita later this year.

Assault Android Cactus is an intense arena shooter in the arcade tradition where each character has an unlimited primary weapon that powers up over the course of the level and a sub weapon that works on a cool down.

Where a shmup might have different ships, we have different androids, and we had a lot of fun designing our eight characters and drawing on our favorite arcade influences to give them each their own feel and keep them fun to play.

Cactus, our games namesake, sports the classic vulcan style machine gun. Fast, precise, and - once it's leveled up - able to tear apart pretty much anything. Her secondary weapon is the flamethrower, a short range, high-damage weapon that burns through packs of enemies and puts big dents in boss health bars.

Holly's Seeker uses homing bullets - they lack punch but are easy to use and backed up by a slow traveling but destructive Cannonball to smash through enemy lines. Lemon uses the classic Spreadshot, when upgraded it has the...
