Playrise Digital: Table Top Racing Coming to PS Vita on August 5th

9w ago - Playrise Digital CEO Nick Burcombe announced today that Table Top Racing is coming to PS Vita on August 5th, 2014.

To quote: Hi, I'm Nick Burcombe, head of Liverpool-based indie development studio [Register or Login to view links]. We've joined forces with publisher [Register or Login to view links] to bring our award-winning game Table Top Racing to PS Vita on August 5th.

I was part of the original team that created WipeOut back in the mid '90s for PlayStation, and I have always loved combat racers and driving games above all other genres - games like Micro Machines and Mario Kart.

So when we were looking at building a new racer, it felt natural to reference those classics when crafting Table Top Racing. We set out to capture some of that essence of what made them so much fun, and I think we've done a pretty good job on that front!

Table Top Racing features a host of crazy tracks complete with shortcuts, over-sized obstacles, jumps, and all manner of other hazards. As the game picks up speed, you need to understand the best racing lines and drift momentum you can get with some of the later cars - it's pretty frantic.

We've included one shot weapon power-ups which give players a temporary advantage, be it a speed boost, missile...
 

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark Out Today on PS4 and PS3

13w ago - Edge of Reality developer Greg John announced that Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is out today on PS4 and PS3 platforms with details below.

To quote: The day has come! Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark launches today on PS4 and PS3, and the Autobots and Decepticons bring their furious war to Earth. In honor of that, we're bringing you a quick list of reasons you should grab a copy of this fast-paced, intense third-person action game - some of which we're revealing for the very first time.

1. New Threats

We've tried to keep a lid on the story of Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark as much as possible, but with the game available today, we're excited to talk about some of the ways in which this is more than just an Optimus Prime vs. Megatron story.

As we've said, we're bridging past and present this time around, linking the dark days of the war for Cybertron, as depicted in our previous Transformers titles, with the live-action films of Paramount Pictures and Hasbro, which told the saga on Earth.

If you've seen the Transformers films, you know there's recently been an opening for a leadership position among the Decepticons. A new villain will emerge in the game and in the upcoming film

Transformers: Age of Extinction. He's a mysterious...
 

Video: A Closer Look at Grim Fandango's Surprise Revival

15w ago - 2 Player Productions Director of Photography Asif Siddiky takes a closer look at Grim Fandango's surprise revival in a video below today.

To quote: Hi, we're 2 Player Productions, the documentary team that brought you Penny Arcade: The Series, Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, and the Kickstarter-funded Double Fine Adventure!

Two years ago, we teamed up with Double Fine Productions to prove that "[Register or Login to view links]!"

Well, they're dead now, but in the way you've always wanted them to be! Tim Schafer's beloved LucasArts classic Grim Fandango is back, and we've put together this short retrospective documentary to get you primed for its upcoming release.





Over the fifteen years since its debut, adventure game enthusiasts have longed for the opportunity to revisit Schafer's neo-noir take on Mexican folklore, but unless you still had the original (now out-of-print) discs, there was no official, LucasArts-sanctioned way to play it.

When Disney and LucasArts began licensing their properties to other developers last year, Double Fine reached out to arrange a deal that would allow them to resurrect Manny Calavera, travel agent...
 

Video: Bridging Generations in Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark

16w ago - Activision Lead Producer Andy Owen is bridging generations in Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark on both PS4 and PS3 consoles with a fresh video trailer below!

To quote: 2014 marks thirty years since giant, sentient robots from outer space brought their ancient war to our world and changed the way we look at the common, everyday tractor trailer.

When Hasbro asked us to play a role in ushering in the Transformers franchise's fourth decade with a new video game, we knew paying respect to that tradition - that shared history - had to be central to the experience we delivered.

That mission statement became Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, a third-person action adventure game that crosses the cosmos, intersecting with Generation One, Paramount Pictures' live-action films, and Activision's Cybertron titles to bridge these storied worlds for the very first time.

The hunt for the illusive and catastrophic Dark Spark - the calamitous counterpart to the Matrix of Leadership, capable of bending the universe to the user's will - is one which will launch players through the fabric of time and space.

The vulnerable human communities of Earth in the present and the war-torn, industrial labyrinths of Cybertron's shattered past will each play prominently throughout the...
