11w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Account Support Manager Nick Suttner shared some tips today for a successful expedition on PS3 and PS Vita.
To quote: Hello, fellow Spelunkers! Depending on how much Spelunky you've played thus far - available now on PS Vita and PS3, Cross-Buy / Cross-Save / Cross-Play for $14.99 - you probably fall somewhere between thinking it's a neat but masochistic experience, to a brilliantly crafted work of evil genius and one of the best things you've played in years.
I'm firmly in the latter camp at this point, playing in every spare moment and endlessly iterating my strategies on my quest to see the game's true ending.
Along the way, I've amassed a mental library of tips and tricks, both from my own playthroughs and from watching some friends in the indie developer community perform masterful runs of their own.
For those just starting out, I've penned a list of some basic tips to shorten the time between Spelunky being the game you love to hate, and the game you just outright love.
ABC: Always Be Carrying. A rock, a rat, a broken arrow - make sure you're carrying something at all times, especially in the Mines (the first world). You'll face arrow traps left and right, and tossing or dropping anything in their...
16w ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Senior Producer Mark Green outlined how to survive the Killzone: Mercenary Multiplayer PlayStation Vita Beta below today.
To quote: We're just a few weeks away from the launch of Killzone: Mercenary, but gamers won't have to wait that long to cut their teeth on Mercenary's impressive multiplayer suite.

Then, on August 27th (after the Store update), the beta will open up further to become available to all North American PS Vita owners, coming to a close on September 3rd.
Surviving the Beta
Mercenary boasts a number of unique modes, innovative gameplay mechanics, and introduces a daily ranking system to make Mercenary the most advanced, addictive multiplayer experience on PS Vita.
109w ago - Today Djamil Kemal at Lexis Numerique has shared some PS3 video footage dubbed Surviving the Horror of Amy: Salvation is Within Reach.
To quote: PlayStation fans have been following the development of AMY for some time now and have been giving us tremendous support - we sincerely thank you for that.
Others are just discovering this original upcoming PSN survival-horror game for the first time. What none of you have seen is the actual gameplay that lies at the heart of the game: the very unique relationship between Amy and Lana, our lead character.
When you mention 'a very unique relationship' in a video game, it may bring to mind ICO, a game that many of us consider a milestone in video game history.
The recent re-release of the HD version by PlayStation brought back many memories for us. The first time you finished ICO, what remained was great emotional depth and a rare feeling of empathy for Yorda, the young woman you try to protect.
Before playing ICO, the simple idea of protecting a non-playable character seemed tedious and dull. And yet, in ICO, you never had the feeling of doing a long escort mission. You really wanted to protect her.
