2d ago - Frogmind's Teemu Maki-Patola shared a video today announcing that Badland: Game of the Year Edition is coming to PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms with details below.

To quote: Hi everyone! This is Teemu from Frogmind. I hope everyones' 2015 is off to an awesome start.

I'm excited to be able to reach out to you and tell you about our plans to bring our award-winning action adventure game, Badland, to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita this spring with Badland: Game of the Year Edition.





Badland was initially released in 2013 on tablet. It got a brilliant reception and has won numerous awards. Most important of all, it has been received heart-warmingly well by the gamers who play it.

Our original goal in making Badland was to create a console quality game for tablets. Back then we were a team of two with too few resources to enter the console market.

But we hoped to bring Badland here. Luckily, it did well and we can finally make this dream a reality. We've also got many requests for a PlayStation version from our fans. It's great to finally be able to say that it's coming soon.

Badland is a unique mix of innovative physics-based gameplay, creative level design, power-ups - from cloning to...

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation Out Today

550°
4d ago - Idea Factory International's David Alonzo confirmed that Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation is officially out today on PS Vita with details below.

To quote: Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. And what a glorious morning it is! You know why? Because Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation comes out today, exclusively for PS Vita!

For those who haven't played a Hyperdimension Neptunia title before, it takes place in a world fittingly called Gamindustri, where four Goddesses - each representing a certain game console - battle for control of the land (while breaking the fourth wall at every opportune moment).

In Re;Birth2, however, these Goddesses have been banished to an underworld by the piracy-loving Arfoire Syndicate and now it's up to their younger sisters to save the Goddesses and save the day. A remake of the PS3 title Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2, this game comes packed to the gills with new characters, new story, and new gameplay!

You'll encounter enemies like Super Otaku, living Tetris-like blocks, and screenshots of visual novels in battles that combine action RPG and turn-based RPG elements. Cut them down with 8 characters in battle - 4 on the main line, and 4 others that can jump in with support attacks or that can be swapped in at...
 

Axiom Verge: The Secrets of Speedrun Mode on PS4 and PS Vita

700°
5d ago - Thomas Happ Games LLC Programmer / Artist / Designer / Composer Tom Happ shared the secrets of Speedrun Mode today in Axiom Verge on PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: Hey everyone - this is Tom Happ, the sole developer of Axiom Verge. I did all of the art, music, design, animation, and programming as a labor of love.

After 5 years of working on Axiom Verge in isolation, I'm finally getting close to launch. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on it. I'm pretty proud of what I've been able to make as a team of 1, but the ultimate judges will be you, the players.

One of the newest features I added was a Speedrun Mode. For years I've loved watching ridiculously skilled players 100%-ing great games like Super Metroid, Shovel Knight, Guacamelee, and more. The recent AGDQ festival also made me think deeply about creating features specifically for the speedrunning community.

To understand how Speedrun Mode works, it's important to understand a little about Axiom Verge. In Axiom Verge, you play as Trace, a scientist who wakes up after a lab accident in a strange, alien world. Similar to classic games like Super Metroid, Master Blaster, Bionic Commando, and Contra, the game involves a mix of exploration, new weapons and powerups, new enemies to battle and epic boss fights....
