28w ago - Today Gemma Jessop of Cherry Pop Games shared some video footage announcing that Pool Nation lines up a PlayStation Network release today!
To quote: Doctor! Doctor!! I think I'm turning into a pool ball. Get to the back of the queue!
Dawn breaks over a wet and grey Manchester. It's raining. Again. Outside the office window, a shopping trolley is having a race down the Irwell with a slightly crazed duck. The big money is on the duck.
Inside, it's approaching fever pitch as the finishing touches are put to our first game, Pool Nation. A small band of just 10 occasionally-presentable gamers, we're giving our balls that one last polish. Ball obsession may sound like something a '70s DJ may be afflicted with, but here at CherryPop, in one way or another, we're all smitten.
We've even been known to dress up as giant pool balls and scare small children.
In Huw's corner, he's doing what astrophysicists do best - bouncing pool balls around and making sure they behave themselves. To Huw, a spot of ball-on-ball interaction is physics porn, pure and simple. Nobody describes the inner dynamics of what happens on the baize, second by second,...
39w ago - High Moon Studios Game Director Sean Miller shared a video today spotlighting High Moon: Deadpool on PlayStation 3 dubbed Madness is His Method below.
To quote: This is Sean Miller, Director of Deadpool, coming this summer to PS3 from High Moon Studios and Activision.
We asked Deadpool, who graciously volunteered his leadership to relieve us of the pressures of developing a video game for him, to make a thoughtful video carefully outlining the nuanced gameplay and character features gamers could look forward to in his self-titled debut later this year.
As you can see in this new gameplay trailer, he... disagreed artistically. But while Deadpool sleeps off the tray of dessert chimichangas (he's named them 'chillychangas' he just finished off, I'm free to give you a more in-depth introduction to Deadpool.
If you're not familiar with High Moon Studios, we're the team behind two of the highest-rated Transformers video games of all time: Transformers: War for Cybertron and its sequel, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
Deadpool is more than just a poster on our wall here - he's real to us, and his chaotic presence is a well we draw from constantly in designing his game. Deadpool...

For the first time ever, the most jaw-dropping, adrenaline-fueled anti-gravity racers combine – WipEout HD Fury and WipEout 2048 are together at last!

101w ago - Liverpool Studios Game Director Stuart Tilley and Lead Designer Karl Jones are here with details on WipEout 2048's Zombie Apocalypse for PlayStation Vita below.
To quote: The new WipEout game is our biggest and most adventurous ever, with loads of awesome new stuff for you to get your hands on come February 22nd.
But almost every game has at least one cool feature that sadly finds its way to the cutting room floor, and WipEout 2048 is no exception L. Earlier this year we prototyped a new (hidden) game mode called ZOMBIE.
Now, this is WipEout, so our zombies were never going to be the sluggish, lumbering, flesh-eaters you're familiar with. These are 1000mph steel and carbon fibre machines of menacing evil, and they want you dead...
The rules of ZOMBIE were simple enough - survive the horror for as long as possible by avoiding or taking out the Zombie ships. You start in darkness, alone on the track. Then you hear them in the distance, the digital scream of their engines filling you with dread.
They start to show up on your Zombie radar, a handful at first in hot pursuit and full of ominous darkness. Then they're on you, ramming you, destroying themselves if need be, but they're taking you with them.
