7w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements went hands-on today and made available some video footage of old-school shooting with new-school technology in Resogun on the PS4 video gaming system!
To quote: Fire up Resogun, muffle out the world with a pair of killer headphones, and get lost in a flurry of bullets. This is the kind of shooter that demands a gamer's full attention, and it's the kind of demand worth giving in to.
Resogun, which launches alongside PS4 next month and will be included as the first Instant Game Collection title for PlayStation Plus members in North America, marries the joy of chasing high scores with cutting-edge graphics tech.
Like developer Housemarque's other downloadable games (Super Stardust HD, Super Stardust: Delta, Dead Nation), picking up the controls only takes a few minutes. Move with DualShock 4′s left analog stick, fire with the right. Your ship has a boost attack, bombs, and a devastating overdrive attack - all executed with the triggers.
But getting caught up in the pounding, explosive flow of Resogun will inevitably lead to score chasing and an almost meditative state, as bullets coat the screen and explosions churn with the thump of the music. Resogun has killer sound design, which amps up the pace of each level - the perfect...

175w ago - Ubisoft Sr. Brand Manager Michael Micholic has announced today that the soundtrack to Scott Pilgrim vs The World is going old school on PSN.
To quote: Once we decided to go for the old school, side scrolling, beat 'em up style with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Video Game, we wanted to go all in! We brought in pixel artist extraordinaire Paul Robertson.
The next step was creating an amazing soundtrack. We immediately thought of Brooklyn chiptune rockers, Anamanaguchi. They wowed us (and 5,000 others) at PAX and really captured the sound we wanted for the game.
Here, the guys share their favorite songs from the game.
Ary Warnaar - "Twin Dragons"
I really enjoyed how the Twin Dragons cue came into existence. It was very unexpected. A couple months ago we were playing a show here in Brooklyn with Ok, Go. I was hanging out backstage with one of my good friends Damon who also happens to be one of the most talented chip artists I know (he goes by Starscream with his drummer George).
We were kinda bored and decided to start a collaboration italo-disco song on Game Boy. He started with an awesome bass line and...
