3w ago - Zoink developer Klaus Lyngeled shared a video today announcing that Stick It to the Man is out tomorrow on PlayStation 3.
To quote: Wow! It has been a great week here at Zoink: years of sketching, painting, story writing, puzzle coding and voice-acting have come to an end, and this week you can all Stick It to The Man on your PS3. And it actually looks like we did something right. Reviews are popping up all over the place and it's looking good, actually amazingly awesome! Mostly 9 out of 10!
Besides floating around on pink clouds with goofy smiles on our faces, we even managed to throw a brand-spanking new gameplay trailer together. Check it out - it'll be much easier than me trying to explain the game to you.
We internally call it the Crazy Trailer. It's just crazily overloaded with stuff; we had a really hard time choosing what should go in, so we just packed it pretty full with a bit of everything!
You can preorder the game now, or wait until PlayStation Store updates tomorrow to buy it. It's cross-buy, so when the PS Vita version is released in December you'll get that too! For updates check out the Web site or head to the Facebook...
4w ago - Today Kai at Frozenbyte announced that Trine 2: Complete Story is coming to PS4 / PlayStation 4 tomorrow with details below.
To quote: Hi everyone. I'm very happy to announce that Trine 2: Complete Story is a PS4 launch game. That was our goal, and it's been a hectic few months, but we've made it. Trine 2: Complete Story is now officially lined up to arrive on PS4 tomorrow.
In the trailer above, you'll see some of the new skills that are available in the Complete Story version, such as the Knight's Kitesail Shield, and the Thief's Low Gravity Arrow. There are a total of 20 levels full of adventure, with sceneries ranging from lush forests to a scorching hot desert, and the insides of a gigantic sandworm - even isles floating in the sky.
Trine 2: Complete Story supports DualShock 4′s touch pad, and it makes many elements of the gameplay very intuitive. An example of this is drawing boxes or planks with the wizard, and moving them around and interacting with the environment.
On the tech side, Trine 2 runs at beautiful full HD 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second. It's truly a sight to see, and what's more is that we're also one of the few games at launch with stereoscopic 3D support. So remember...
5w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli announced today that their The Last of Us Multiplayer: Nightmare PS3 bundle is officially out tomorrow with details below.
To quote: We're keeping the spirit of Halloween alive and kicking this week as the Nightmare Bundle will be available when PlayStation Store updates in your region. This is our second batch of multiplayer head items.
These nine gnarly masks and helmets can be downloaded for free if you buy The Last of Us Season Pass. If you still haven't purchased a Season Pass, get it now as you'll be savings over 75% versus buying all DLC individually.
If you don't want to buy individual items or the Season Pass, these Nightmare head items are also part of a bundle. If you want the Nightmare Mask for your character they'll only be able to wear it if you have a Season Pass or purchase the Nightmare Bundle. In other words, the Nightmare Mask is exclusive to the Nightmare Bundle and Season Pass holders.
Get ready for more The Last of Us coverage, multiplayer head items, and DLC news in the coming weeks. See you online!
7w ago - WB Games Montreal Narrative Designer Ryan Galletta announced today via Sony's Blog that Batman: Arkham Origins is officially out tomorrow on PS3!
To quote: This year, Christmas comes on October 25th when Batman: Arkham Origins launches on PS3. Just like the night before Christmas, the team at WB Games Montreal is staying up late, anxious and excited to see what the morning will bring.
Over the last two years, this team has worked incredibly hard, giving much of their lives to ensure that we honor the name "Batman."
We can't wait to show off our boss fights. In particular, Bane and Deathstroke are going to test your limits in brutal contest. We think Copperhead will come out of Arkham Origins as one of the coolest interpretations of the character.
And the team would be sadly disappointed for anyone who misses out on the Mad Hatter Most Wanted mission. Setting aside how beautiful the rest of the game looks, the art team went a little crazy there, and Peter MacNicol really knocks it out of the park as a very mad Hatter.
All in all, there's a massive playground for you to explore, and the team has made sure that there's a reason to visit every corner of it.
Batman's pain and anger will be channeled straight to the hairs on the back of your neck, thanks...
8w ago - XSeed Games Localization Lead Ryan Graff posted up a new PS Vita video today announcing that Valhalla Knights 3 is due out tomorrow on PlayStation Vita.
To quote: We're so thrilled that Valhalla Knights 3, our massive JRPG set in a sprawling prison, launches tomorrow for PS Vita. It's been a long, challenging, and rewarding process for the team.
The first thing you learn in this industry is how hard everyone works. Whether the project is a hundred-million-dollar blockbuster, or a smaller, niche title, dozens of people across many different teams spend months - if not years - of their lives carrying out a thousand different tasks. Some of those tasks are wildly creative, others bureaucratic and mundane, but it takes all of them together to deliver a game into players' hands.
On Valhalla Knights 3, I was a latecomer. I joined up in early September, when most of the hardest work had already been done. Most of my contributions have been on the bureaucratic side this time around, working with other XSEED members, the game's developers, and our friends at PlayStation to get everything ready for launch.
(To put my work on this project in RPG terms, think of the design phase as exploration, the programming phase as combat, and my work as the part where you open up the menu...
