Axiom Verge: The Secrets of Speedrun Mode on PS4 and PS Vita

700°
6d ago - Thomas Happ Games LLC Programmer / Artist / Designer / Composer Tom Happ shared the secrets of Speedrun Mode today in Axiom Verge on PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: Hey everyone - this is Tom Happ, the sole developer of Axiom Verge. I did all of the art, music, design, animation, and programming as a labor of love.

After 5 years of working on Axiom Verge in isolation, I'm finally getting close to launch. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on it. I'm pretty proud of what I've been able to make as a team of 1, but the ultimate judges will be you, the players.

One of the newest features I added was a Speedrun Mode. For years I've loved watching ridiculously skilled players 100%-ing great games like Super Metroid, Shovel Knight, Guacamelee, and more. The recent AGDQ festival also made me think deeply about creating features specifically for the speedrunning community.

13w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill posted up a Final Fantasy XIV Q&A dubbed Headed Heavensward on PlayStation 4 (and PlayStation 3) today with details below.

To quote: It's a good time to be an Eorzean. Final Fantasy XIV patch 2.4, Dreams of Ice, has just released, adding new dungeons, the rogue class and ninja job, a new primal battle with long-standing series summon Shiva, The Final Coil of Bahamut - the third and final chapter of FFXIV's ultimate end-game raid, and countless other tweaks and new features.

Square Enix also just announced FFXIV 3.0 Heavensward, a whole new expansion that will add way too much content for me to list in an opening paragraph. Well okay, a few highlights: Dark Knight class! New areas and primals! New playable race! Flying Chocobos and single-rider airships! That's all coming in Spring 2015.

Finally, fans worldwide have had the chance to attend the first-ever FFXIV Fan Festival - recently held in Las Vegas and London, with an upcoming stop in Tokyo. I attended the first of these events, and had the great pleasure of sitting down with Naoki Yoshida (Yoshi-P to his friends and fans), the producer and director of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

Naoki Yoshida: Thank you so much for taking time to come to the Final Fantasy XIV...
