61w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff has announced today that Dishonored will unleash supernatural powers tomorrow on Blu-ray and PSN.
To quote: In one day, we will release Dishonored, our new first-person action game developed by the talented team at Arkane Studios. Dishonored puts you in the role of Corvo Attano, bodyguard of the Empress of Dunwall.
A pretty good gig... until you're falsely accused of killing her, kidnapping her daughter, and subsequently imprisoned and tortured by the sinister Lord Regent. Despite this, you remain the best hope for saving Dunwall, where plague is rampant and the city is on the verge of dystopia.
Early in your adventure, you will receive "The Outsider's Mark" – a mysterious tattoo on your left hand that grants you supernatural abilities. As you progress through the game, this mark will allow you to unlock new abilities, each of which can be upgraded to a second level for improved functionality.
Below is a look at two of the development team's favorite abilities:
Devouring Swarm summons a vicious swarm of rats that will consume corpses...
78w ago - Mando Productions Marketing Director Michel Bams has confirmed that fans can unleash God-like powers with PS Move in Babel Rising which hits PSN today!
To quote: Available later today on PSN, Babel Rising puts god-like powers in gamer's hands as they smite humans who are attempting to build the Tower of Babel.
Conjure up a series of divine powers - tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes and more - to halt the progress of the pesky humans.
When developing the game, we looked to really empower the players. Having players use these powers with a PS3 DualShock controller was great, but we wanted to really immerse the players and make them feel powerful, which led us to integrate the PlayStation Move motion controller.
The precision of PlayStation Move led to the development of our movements - a small gesture and a large gesture. We wanted to create believable movements that empowered players.
Releasing the smaller powers, which occur frequently, would require smaller gestures while the devastating ultimate powers demand much larger, powerful gestures.
In addition to the fun of feeling almighty, the PlayStation Move also offers a good balance to the player between concentration and action.

To quote: You may remember Mediatonic's work from such audacious adventures as Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess and Who's That Flying?!
Today, we're massively excited to reveal details of our third, rum-soaked PlayStation minis title 1000 Tiny Claws!
The response to our previous games has been overwhelming and hugely appreciated - and as with those minis titles, we've tried to load as much of what you loved into 1000 Tiny Claws as humanly possible.
First, a short-and-sweet summary for those who are too busy to read a rambling blog post from some guy at some games company:
Your legendary sky-pirate crew may have been responsible for unleashing an apocalyptic curse of giant insects upon the world - and now there's only 24 hours to save their necks from the hangman's noose! First Mate Rana sets out to smash her way through the relentless scuttling horde in a sword-swinging arcade battler set against an epic backdrop of sky-islands and piracy!
