5d ago - XGen Studios CEO and Founder Skye Boyes shared details today on how to earn a PS4 Fortune in Super Motherload on PlayStation 4.
To quote: Hello, fellow miners! In case you missed the news, PS3 owners can now get their hands on Super Motherload and dig up some Martian gems with their friends.
In the wake of the PS3 launch, and to treat our players on PS4, today's post is all about tips and tricks - helping you to maximize your mining (and edging out the "friendly" competition). Follow these tips and you'll have your gold Trophies in no time!
Faster, Stronger: Dig straight shafts down to expedite returning to the surface. It's often worth the cost of bombs to ensure a better tunnel for speedy, collision-free travel.
Efficiency = Much Better: Fuel consumption is highest when digging and flying. Refrain from revving the engine when descending and stay still while figuring out puzzles to conserve fuel.
Make a Small Fortune: Consider your actions carefully when solving puzzles. A careless blast can render the reward irretrievable and result in bomber's remorse.
Be More Cautious This Time, Comrade: C4 destroys a 5X5 area, TNT destroys 3X3, and Shaft Bombs destroy 1X9. This can can mean the difference between grabbing valuable...
3w ago - XGen Studios CEO and Founder Skye Boyes confirmed that Super Motherload PS4 is officially out today on PlayStation 4.
To quote: With the launch of Super Motherload and PS4 today, we count ourselves lucky to be among the small number of indie games available at launch, helping to make good on Sony's promise to support innovation from small teams.
What we don't push in polygons, we hope to make up in truly social gameplay experiences that keep drawing you back. For the next puzzle, the next Special Upgrade, and of course your next grudge-match against pals.
One unique PS4 feature we didn't have space to mention in our last post is Super Motherload's use of the Activity Feed. As certain events unfold in Super Motherload, such as the untimely and permanent death of your hard-won upgraded character at the hands of fuel depletion in Hardcore mode, the activity feed will broadcast notification of your controller-hurtling rage to your friends on PSN. Other, more celebratory activity feed posts include the acquisition of Special Abilities and Character Unlocks.
There has also been quite a bit of interest in the soundtrack for Super Motherload since our last post. We're pleased to announce that we've decided to stream the entire soundtrack on YouTube for free (with digital download...
5w ago - XGen Studios CEO and Founder Skye Boyes shared a video today on Super Motherload on PS4 which explores both the story and game modes below.
To quote: With just one week until Super Motherload launches alongside PS4, I'm eager to share with you PlayStation.Blog readers a bit about what makes Super Motherload tick, as well as show off a brand new video to set the scene.
Super Motherload is an arcade style digging adventure for one to four players, set on Mars in the retro future (And if that's not a mouthful enough, you're welcome to add "Soviet space race," "B movie sci-fi," and "mining puzzler" to the mix!).
Inspired by our original game, Motherload, we wanted to bring Mars mining to consoles and breathe some life back into the four-player, couch co-op style of gameplay that we love and miss so much. Online play can't hold a candle to a good, "reassuring" elbow to the ribs when your buddy goes in the wrong direction with no fuel to spare.
Super Motherload's visual charm is no doubt rooted in some of our favorite movies and tv shows of past decades, including Battlestar Galactica (the original), Buck Rogers, and Moon, to name a few. Those favorites, along with an '80s inspired soundtrack, all lend to...
23w ago - Recently Kotaku (via Sang of RRA) reported news that a new PS3 SuperSlim Model CECH-4200 alongside it's Asia counterparts CECH-4205B and CECH-4205C are expected to arrive soon.
Below are the details, to quote: "In South Korea, Sony just filed for certification for two new PS3 models: CECH-4205B and CECH-4205C. As tipster Sang points out, these could be slightly modified versions of the "Super Slim PS3s" (model number CECH-4000, image above) with smaller nanometer architecture, less power consumption, and better cooling.
Earlier this month, new PS3 models also surfaced on a webpage for Japan's Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications. That listing was for "CECH-4200". The assumption is that the difference between "CECH-4200" and "CECH-4205" is regional for Japan and South Korea."
To quote: I've ported (and totally re written) Super Pixel Jumper to PS3! It's a ridiculously old game of mine that I actually made originally for GP2X and then ported to Wii.
It's a score based platformer with constant forward motion. It starts out slow but the speed of the game will increase (as will your score) as long as you avoid contact with the brighter colored blocks. Your high score is automatically saved.
