1w ago - Red Barrels Co-Founder Philippe Morin promises PS4 fans today that Outlast will scare the heck out of you on the PlayStation 4 console.
To quote: Hi, I'm Philippe Morin from Red Barrels! Together with co-founders David Chateauneuf and Hugo Dallaire, we started an indie studio for one reason: to use our experience working on games like Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Assassin's Creed to make the horror game we've been talking about with each other for years.
We're all big horror fans, especially David, and the game we wanted to make, a realistic survival horror game, wasn't the type of thing any big companies were willing to take a risk on. So we're taking the risk ourselves with Outlast, a survival horror, stealth-based game set in an abandoned asylum, coming to PS4 next year!
The best games make you feel something, some type of emotion that sticks with you after you're done playing. And fear is one of the most powerful emotions we can have as human beings. So for us, to make the best game possible, we know that we have to scare the heck out of you. We're trying to do that in a number of different ways, but where we start is with the design.
In Outlast you play as a journalist with no weapons or fighting ability. You're powerless and...
4w ago - Today GamingBolt.com (linked above) reports that Sony India's Web site has apparently leaked the rumored PlayStation 4 / PS4 250 GB SKU retail pricing with details below.
To quote: "Sony India apparently updated (now removed) their Web site to reveal the pricing for the upcoming next generation PlayStation 4 console. It listed the console along with a 250 GB hard disk drive as retailing for 399 Euros.
Of course, a while later, they realized their slip up and proceeded to delete the information. Not before other sites could latch on to the info however (thanks NeoGAF), and report on it.
As it stands, this would validate rumours that the PlayStation 4 would be retailing for $400 to $500 dollars (with 399 Euros roughly translating into $513). While we doubt that the price in the United States would be that much, we'd be surprised if Sony priced the console lower than $400.
Of course, this hasn't been officially announced by Sony worldwide - and they would at least use a platform like E3 2013 to announce the price of the device. So remain skeptical. It could very well have been a complete slip-up or just something completely wrong that couldn't be removed quick enough."
8w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani shared a video spotlighting Assassin's Creed III: The Redemption for PS3 which arrives today.
Below are the details, to quote: The final chapter of Assassin's Creed III's three-part Tyranny of King Washington single-player DLC series is nearly upon us! The mad King George Washington has retreated within his New York stronghold and Ratonhnhake:ton must prepare an assault against Washington's incredible fortress.
As the stakes continue to rise in Ratonhnhake:ton's pursuit of Washington, so too must his strength and ferocity. Calling on an ancient source of might, Ratonhnhake:ton must once again risk his sanity to embark on a mysterious and dangerous Sky Journey in order to release the Power of the Bear.
The Power of the Bear enables Ratonhnhake:ton to strike the ground with such immeasurable force that all nearby enemies will be hurled into the air or crushed into the ground. Even more remote enemies will be staggered by the concentration of will and raw power, making the Power of the Bear an effective method of crowd control.
Like Ratonhnhake:ton's other abilities (Eagle and Wolf), the Power of the Bear can even be used from rooftops, unleashing a devastating...
10w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff announced today alongside a video that Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall PS3 DLC is out Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: You've played the role of the Empress' protector, and now you will experience Dishonored from the other side of the coin.
Watch our newly released trailer for Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall, which puts you in the role of Daud - the assassin responsible for Empress Jessamine's death.
Those that have played through Dishonored know Daud possesses the Mark of the Outsider - granting him supernatural abilities. But don't expect to be playing as a Corvo clone - Daud can call for help with 'Summon Assassin', track down runes and bone charms with "Void Gaze", and his variation on Blink allows him to stop time - even in mid air.
You'll needs these powers, as well as stealth weapons like Daud's custom wristbow and arc mines to survive some of the most challenging areas in Dunwall - including the Rothwild Slaughterhouse, Legal District, and a return to Daud's hidden base in the Flooded District. Nothing you can't handle, right?
As with Dishonored, we encourage you to play The Knife of Dunwall...
