18h ago - Gaijin Games Associate Producer Dant Rambo posted up a video today announcing that Bit Trip's Runner2 is coming to PS Vita on December 17th, 2013.
To quote: Greetings, current and future best friends. For those of you unfamiliar with our humble studio, we're the folks behind the Bit.Trip series, as well as the recently released Bit.Trip Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien.
We also invented the cheese-flavored cough drop, but due to a pending lawsuit, aren't permitted to speak of that.
Since releasing Runner2 for console and PC, we've had countless people ask us about a potential Vita version. This was, as you can surely imagine, very flattering. We were stoked that people enjoyed the game as much as they did, and even more stoked that they wanted to see it on additional platforms (I promise not to use "stoked" again in this post).
This inspired us to give it our all with the Vita version, and to make it just as good as its console counterparts. As it turns out, this wasn't such a difficult task. As any Vita owner can confirm, it's an incredibly powerful platform.
Whether this will be your first time playing the game or you're a seasoned vet, rest assured that no expense...
To quote via wololo: Firmware 3.01 available - Some usermode exploits fixed, ... this little devil of a Firmware patched again some (at least 2) usermode exploits. This time two games were patched, one that wasn’t used at all, it just functioned as a hello world, and one game, that might got leaked some weeks ago. But what about our kernel mode relase and TN-V4? Well ...
It was confirmed that the kernel mode exploit and TN-V4 are still fully working at the new Firmware...
2d ago - Spry Fox Chief Creative Officer Daniel Cook made available some video footage today of the unique puzzles of Road Not Taken on PlayStation 4 below.
To quote: How might a roguelike look like if it featured a thinker and explorer, instead of a traditional warrior? If being clever was more important than being strong? That's a design challenge we've attempted to tackle with Road Not Taken.
You play a ranger in a frigid, enchanted forest, trying to save lost children. You start with a few easy-to-learn abilities. You can pick up any adjacent objects, you can carry them around, and you can throw them.
Trees, boulders, bears - they all float at your command. But you need to be careful; whenever you carry things, it costs you stamina. If you run out of stamina, you collapse face-first into the snow. No checkpoints, no reloads. It's over.
The Environment is the Threat
In Road Not Taken, both the challenge and the exciting moments come from the setting itself. You'll be intrigued by strange objects that you haven't encountered before, and whose characteristics are never fully explained. There are wild creatures running about, spiky plants that hurt you if you pick them up, and blizzards...
2d ago - IGN Senior Editor Colin Moriarty announced today that the IGN PlayStation application is out today on PS4.
Below are the details, to quote: Greetings once again, PlayStation.Blog! My name's Colin, IGN's Senior Editor.
You may have seen me skulking around IGN PlayStation and making terrible predictions on Podcast Beyond, but today, I'm not here to make any pizza bets with you. No, I'm here to tell you about something exciting we've cooked up for PS4 owners.
IGN for PlayStation, our new app for PS4, is available today, and I'm pleased to tell you that you can download it for yourself - free of charge - when PlayStation Store updates. The app is currently exclusive to PS4, and will come to PS3 and PS Vita next year.
How does this benefit you, exactly? IGN's PS4 app will make you more popular with your friends, give you more energy, and even make the food you eat taste better (that's not true). But more importantly, our PS4 app will give you direct access to all of IGN's video content, letting you create custom playlists, while finding and consuming the exact content you're seeking.
What's truly cool about the app, however, is how granular you can get with it. You can rapidly come in and out of full-screen view, minimize a video...
