41w ago - Sony Director of Emerging Platforms Chris Mahoney has announced that OMG Zombies is the final weekly free PS Mobile game available today!
Below are the details, to quote: It seems people can't get enough of the undead. Laughing Jackal's OMG Zombies – the last of our six free PS Mobile games - casts you as the sole survivor of a police team that has been attacked by (you guessed it) zombies. Your mission: tear through hordes of zombies across a maze of levels, and escape the city.
Your progress in this game depends on the amount of chained combos you get from killing zombies. This game is an upgraded version of the OMG-Z game that was released by Laughing Jackal as a PS mini back in 2011.
There are weapon upgrades, branching levels, rewards, and various zombie types to encounter. This game is the easiest - and safest - way to take out zombies.
PS Vita owners will be able to download OMG Zombies for free on the PlayStation Mobile section of PlayStation Store.
Owners of PlayStation-certified devices (see full list here) can obtain it through the PlayStation Mobile Store - click here for full instructions.
We hope you enjoyed our six weeks of free PlayStation...
66w ago - Zen Studios Creative Director Neil Sorens is here with a new video showcasing Plants vs. Zombies for Zen Pinball 2 which includes a new table!
Below are the details, to quote: We are pleased to welcome ourselves – Jeff Green, Community Manager for PopCap Games and Neil Sorens, Zen Studios' Creative Director – to the show, as we dynamically tag-team this entry.
We wanted to share with you a little bit about how Zen and PopCap worked together to create the Plants vs. Zombies Pinball table, releasing today right alongside Zen Pinball 2 for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. Enough of us rambling though; take a look at the trailer.
Jeff: The first thing you need to know about this Plants vs. Zombies table is that it is built out of authentic Plants vs. Zombies bits and pieces.
We handed Zen Studios original game assets including art, sounds, objects, zombies, flowers, plants, defenses - ok, you get it - in a beautiful package of digital goodness. Zen took these and went to work designing another brilliant pinball table. We asked Crazy Dave for some wisdom to send along to Zen: "MMMMMM PINBALL".
Neil: When we first received all these assets, our excitement level went through the...
94w ago - PopCap Games Director of Editorial and Social Media Jeff Green has announced that Plants vs Zombies for PS Vita is hitting PSN today with details below.
To quote: I know it's been over a year since we last spoke, and I am sorry about that. I've just been really busy and haven't had time to write, and I swear I have not been cheating on you with the Xbox blog or anything.
Anyway, now that the awkwardness is out of the way and we're friends again, I am here to tell you that I have another exciting announcement for you! Plants Vs Zombies is coming to your brand-spankin' new PS Vita today! Yay!
If you have never played our action-puzzler – that pits a horde of horticultural heroes against a mob of fetid, undead, brain-eating zombies - there is no better time than now. The PS Vita version is darn near the most perfect version of Plants Vs Zombies yet, taking advantage of the handheld console's touchscreen and internal motion sensors.
And if you have played it before, well, why not play it again?
Think of it as training for the real zombie apocalypse, which, not to be too much of a bummer here, could be coming any day now. Why be one of the unfortunate ones who end up in some undead guy's brain sandwich? Do the responsible thing and prepare now with our game!...
100w ago - Leader inXile CEO Brian Fargo has announced today alongside a video trailer that Choplifter HD will be hitting PS3 on PSN Tuesday and includes zombies!
To quote: I really get a kick out of the fact that I am now considered an "indie" again after all these years.
I have been making games for nearly 30 years, having built a top-five PC publishing house called Interplay around such major franchises as The Bard's Tale, Wasteland, Baldur's Gate, Fallout, Descent and more.
In the early days, I developed games for other companies and moved up the food chain to become a publisher so that I could make games "my way."
And here I sit, again readying our first major release in Choplifter HD as a digital publisher and having created the game the way I wanted. Our company tagline at Interplay was "By Gamers. For Gamers" and it is those same values we used in creating Choplifter HD.
Choplifter was a very important game when it was originally released back in 1982 and achieved #1 status at the time. Dan Gorlin, the original creator, really understood the humanness of saving little people from tough situations.
It was a great action game for sure, but there was something about saving those little guys. And certainly...
