Video: Sucker Punch: InFamous Second Son PS4 Patch Out Tomorrow

50°
10h ago - Today Brian Fleming of Sucker Punch Productions announced that their InFamous Second Son PS4 patch will be out tomorrow alongside a PlayStation 4 video trailer below.

To quote: I have some good news for you. We've made great progress on the inFAMOUS Second Son patch on PS4 I promised you a couple weeks back. In fact, we expect to publish it on PSN tomorrow, April 17th.

Now first, let me update you on the specifics I promised, and then toss in a few extra goodies that we managed to squeeze in when nobody was looking. First - addressing one of the top two requests we've gotten - you'll be able to disable the HUD, and once you've finished the game you'll be able to adjust the time of day as you like.

We also promised, and have included, an option to cap the game frame rate at 30 FPS if you prefer playing this way. To set expectations for you all: this is a frame rate cap - not a lock. It won't eliminate the rare instance of a dropped frame during gameplay.





But that's all stuff you expected. Let's talk about a few surprises, saving the best for last:

• A handful of localization text changes, and a couple of fixes for rare crashes in the game (Thanks to all of you who uploaded reports on those,...

10h ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli revealed details today on The Last of Us: Grounded Bundle for video gaming fans below.

To quote: We're pleased to announce the third and final drop in The Last of Us season pass. Here's a look at what's in the Grounded Bundle:

New trophies and a mix of single-player and multiplayer content await you in this DLC drop. Grounded Mode will be the hardest challenge you'll ever face as you try to complete the single-player campaign of The Last of Us.

The AI is relentless, smart, and brutal, and survival will be near impossible. "Completed Grounded Mode" might be one of the most difficult Trophies you'll ever earn. If you're not a season pass holder, Grounded Mode will cost $4.99 standalone.

Reclaimed Territories Map Pack

The Reclaimed Territories Map Pack features four news maps:

Wharf, Capitol, Coal Mine, and Water Tower. Each map has a mix of Trophies attached and is set in a location that will be familiar yet unfamiliar to players of the single-player campaign. Intelligent use of climbing, stealth, flanking, and all your clan survival techniques will be essential to master these maps. It's available for $9.99 for non-season pass holders.

• Wharf - Set in the rusted-out docks where...
 

Video: Atlus Announces Conception II is Out Today on PS Vita

2d ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin announced that Conception II is out today on PS Vita with a fresh PlayStation Vita video trailer below.

To quote: Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars is out today for PS Vita, and you know what that means? It's time to start classmating!

Conception II is a dungeon crawler/social-sim hybrid where you're put into the role of "God's Gift" - a teenager bestowed with unprecedented amounts of power from the Star God. As a disciple, you're tasked with saving the world of Aterra by pairing up with one of the game's seven heroines and clearing out infestations of monsters.

Of course, to do that, you'll need your army of Star Children - magical beings that fight for you in battle. You make these Star Children through a magical ritual with the heroines, and you can bring up to nine Star Children with you into battle.

There's 30 classes of Star Children to choose from, and the stats of the heroine, the heroine's mood (You gotta be nice to them!), and other rare items affect what classes are available to you, so spend your time wisely.

Oh - and be sure to turn on your ad-hoc networks; you can actually classmate with another player's heroines or even the other players themselves in a process called "classmanting" (Yeah, that's a thing).

2d ago - The Gameroom Product Development Manager Ashley Hodgetts announced that That Trivia Game is out today on the PlayStation 4 video gaming system with details below.

To quote: Get those thinking caps on and ready the crew for an intense battle of the minds - in a "not too serious" way. It's time for That Trivia Game!

That Trivia Game on PS4 is all about trivia. We spent a large portion of our time researching and creating questions that cover a wide range of categories and topics.

A thousand questions were hand-picked out of the thousands of candidates to ensure we had a fair and balanced collection of relevant and current trivia. The difficulty levels were carefully balanced so that everyone can get involved - there's nothing worse than being the only person playing that doesn't know any of the answers.

That Trivia Game has four rounds with fun and varying ways of playing. Each round adds its own twist to the trivia format, making every round fun and engaging, while still being easy to play.

As mentioned earlier, That Trivia Game has more than a thousand questions in a wide range of categories. This means that you can play around 40 games of That Trivia Game without seeing repeating questions. And at the price of $9.99, that's less than 1 cent per question!
 

Voofoo Studios Announces Pure Chess is Out This April 15th on PS4

50°
3d ago - Voofoo Studios Creative Producer Shaun Read officially announced today that Pure Chess is out this April 15th on PS4 with details below.

To quote: You can literally smell the excitement here at VooFoo towers, and it's not (only) due to the lack of personal hygiene time we've had as of late. We've teamed up with publisher Ripstone to bring you our latest, greatest version of Pure Chess, which hits PS4 tomorrow. And we're extremely proud of our baby.

If you don't know who we are, VooFoo Studios is a small team of passionate developers based in sunny Birmingham, right in the heart of England. We've always prided ourselves on making highly playable, photo-realistic games, and thanks to the power of the PS4 hardware we've been able to turn the dial up to eleven.

Displayed at 1080p and running at a silky-smooth 60 frames per second, Pure Chess on PS4 is a visual tour-de-force. We've doubled the texture sizes, added many extra layers of post-processing, added contact shadows, and applied ultra-realistic depth-of-field... which is a rather boring way of saying that this is a seriously good looking chess game! Couple this with a massively improved custom networking system to provide a much slicker online experience and we're confident you'll love Pure Chess just as much as we do.
