Killzone Mercenary Botzone is Out Today on PlayStation Vita

1d ago - Guerilla Cambridge Tech Director Matt Porter announced that Killzone Mercenary Botzone is officially out today on PlayStation Vita.

To quote: A few weeks ago we added two classic Killzone multiplayer maps to Killzone Mercenary.

Since then we've been working on adding more to Killzone Mercenary, and finally it's here on PS Vita. We're very pleased to announce the release of our latest update for Killzone Mercenary, delivering an offline multiplayer experience to our 8 maps.

With the purchase of the Botzone Soldier Training Pack, all of our multiplayer maps can be played offline in Mercenary or Guerrilla Warfare modes, against up to 7 AI soldiers. As the game host, you'll have control over the number of teammates and enemies joining you in battle.

In team modes, you have the luxury of picking your compatriots and foes: play with 3 against 1 for a quick kill, or go brave and take on an entire team of bots alone. Your choice, soldier!

Killzone Mercenary Botzone brings new skills to the series' traditionally strong AI bot experience: Vanguard usage, zip line navigation, interrogations, rescues, capsule hacking, and valour card collection are all behaviors unique to the game and our AI is going to challenge you with all of them. Not only that, but our cunning bots...
 

PlayStation Vita Pets: Puppy Parlour by XDev is Coming to PS Mobile

1d ago - XDev Associate Producer Neil McPhillips announced today that PlayStation Vita Pets: Puppy Parlour is coming to PS Mobile.

To quote: It's not too long now until PS Vita Pets launches in June, but maybe that's too long? So to keep you going until then we're launching a mobile app, PlayStation Vita Pets: Puppy Parlour.

We wanted to give people the opportunity to get to know the pups in advance of the full game's release and experience one of the core aspects at the same time, so we put together the app to allow players to run their own puppy pampering parlour.

Each day a new dog will arrive into your parlour and you'll be tasked with meeting their specific needs through a range of activities such as taking them for a walk, showering, feeding and playing a number of different games.

Games include Dream Chase, where you race to collect golden bones, and Snack Balance, where you tilt your device to keep your dog steady while it balances a tasty treat on its nose. Completing these games and looking after your pups will also earn you points that you can use to upgrade your parlour and unlock new items and clothes.

As you can see, there's loads going on! One of the really cool things about the app is that you can unlock exclusive costumes that can be transferred...
 

Backgammon Blitz Comes to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita This Winter

5d ago - Head of Mobile Robert Karp at The Fyzz Facility announced today that Backgammon Blitz is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita this Winter (Tuesday in the US).

To quote: Update: We are very pleased to share that Backgammon Blitz will be launching April 15th for PS3, PS Vita and PS4, priced at a bargain $7.99 Not only do you get the first ever recreation of this age-old board game for latest and greatest generation of consoles, but there is also the brand new and exclusive Blitz arcade mode, which takes the wonderful game of Backgammon and adds a whole new layer of depth and strategy.

I'm just the messenger, of course. The talented folks behind this lovely little title are known as VooFoo. Having made a name for themselves with Hustle Kings and Pure Chess, Backgammon feels like a step onwards and upwards for the studio, taking all of their strengths (gorgeous art design, a subtle but stylish approach to UI) and none of their weaknesses (cake night each Friday has always been their Achilles heel) into the next generation of platforms. VooFoo Studios yet again have done a fantastic job of making their visuals really stand out from the crowd - just check these screen shots below.

For me - and I hope you'll agree once you've gone hands-on with the final game - VooFoo aren't "just" developers...

5d ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements made available a video today showcasing Rogue Legacy on PlayStation which focuses on building the Roguelike RPG below!

To quote: A dread memory hangs above your head. A haunted castle stands in your way. And your family has struggled for generations in the name of redemption and fortune.

In Rogue Legacy, players embark on a harrowing quest in a retro-style Roguelike, filled with brutal challenges and hundreds of upgrades. Rogue Legacy is coming to PS3, PS4, and PS Vita, with all the dark humor and alluring secrets that made it an indie hit on PC.

We spoke with Cellar Door Games Co-founder and Game Designer Teddy Lee about how the team built this addictive RPG, and why they approached the Roguelike in a new way. See below for the full interview, and Teddy's insight into the design process.





Kenny Lee, Teddy's brother and Cellar Door co-founder, also notes:

We hope you're as excited about the release of Rogue Legacy on PlayStation as we are. Releasing a game on consoles has always been a milestone and a bit of a dream for us, and we never would have taken that step forward without your support and enthusiasm.

It means a lot...

2w ago - Beatshapers Founder and CEO Alexey Menshikov revealed today alongside a video trailer that Z-Run is coming to PlayStation Vita this May.

To quote: Hello there! This is Alexey Menshikov from Beatshapers, and we're proudly announcing Z-Run for PS Vita, coming to PlayStation Store this May.

We moved back the launch date since last summer's announcement in order to make our game bigger and better. Our previous games on PS Vita include StarDrone Extreme, BreakQuest, Furmins, and dozens of PSP minis - along with the recently announced PS4 title, Ready to Run.

Today, we're presenting a gameplay tutorial trailer with the awesome song "You Better Run," made especially for the game by The Spin Wires band.





The world has been overrun by flesh-hungry zombies, and you're stranded in the middle of a post-apocalyptic city with no way out. Are you going to just stand there and get eaten, and turn into a brainless creature, too? Not likely.

In Z-Run, you never stand still. Anyone who does winds up dead. Stay on your toes if you want to stay alive. The city is a mess after the zombie apocalypse struck, so you need to be agile as well as fast while you attempt to sprint through the crowds of undead assailants....
