Sony Announces Starwhal Flops Onto PS4 and PS3 February 24th

300°
1w ago - Game Designer and Co-founder Mike Keogh announced today that Starwhal flops onto PS4 and PS3 this February 24th with details below.

To quote: By popular request, Starwhal is flopping onto your couch this month! Starwhal has enthralled crowds at events like Indiecade, E3 and EVO, but now, for the first time ever, it's hitting a major game console.

Both PS4 and PS3 will see local co­-op mayhem when Starwhal makes its console debut on February 24th in North America.

Originally a 48­hour game jam game, Starwhal took the world by storm in early 2013. The core of the game is competitive matches which see narwhals dueling in a retro vision of deep space. Poke or be poked as you wiggle your way towards, around and onto opponents.

Dodge foes' treacherous tusks while safeguarding your heart and attacking theirs. The silliness can get serious, but once the screaming subsides, hysterical laughter is a common side effect.

Starwhal has received intergalactic praise from both fans and critics. But to take it up a notch, Breakfall has been hard at work expanding the game with a fully ­loaded feature set.

Crazy new modes, intense new arenas, sweet new visual effects, a massive, extended, thumping soundtrack and over 9,000 costume combinations have all been thrown...
 

Octodad: Dadliest Catch Crashes, Stumbles, and Flops on to PS4

90w ago - Young Horses President & Co-Founder Phil Tibitoski announced at E3 today that Octodad: Dadliest Catch will be crashing, stumbling and flopping on to PS4 / PlayStation 4 console.

To quote: Have you ever felt out of place? Just don't feel you're good enough, no matter how hard you try? Maybe you've got something to hide from the world.

Maybe you're not really the perfect human husband and father of three, but actually an octopus. This is what Octodad: Dadliest Catch is all about. You have a loving wife. You have adorable kids. They, however, have no idea of your secret cephalopod nature.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch is the first slapstick fatherhood simulator, and we're excited to say that we'll be bringing it to the PlayStation 4 in 2014.

You may be asking yourself, "Well, what's so difficult about being an octopus?"

Well, first off, you're an invertebrate, so you have no bones. Your body is gelatinous. As you can imagine, that makes it hard to simply move around outside of water.

All those things we humans take for granted, like counteracting gravity, are a constant challenge. Oh, and you have eight arms you've managed to stuff into a fancy suit to form a human shape. There are...
 

How many FLOPS are in Game Consoles?

50°
353w ago - Analyst Opinion - Floating Point Operations Per Second - FLOPS - one of the more obscure processor performance indicators, and one of the oldest ones.

Over time, it has been modified with prefixes such as M (mega), G (giga), T (tera) and will soon get a P (peta). "Tera" describes a million millions - one trillion (1012) - which is a whole lot of anything whether it is cycles (Hertz), bytes, dollars, or FLOPS.

Recently I was asked how many TFLOPS are in all the game consoles shipped to date. There are two answers to that question. You can look at it from the perspective of all the game consoles built and you can look at this question with specific consoles in mind.

Let's look at the combined TFLOPS rating of all game consoles, which actually provides two answers as well. If you count central processor FLOPS then you have one answer and if you count the FLOPS potential of the GPU and add it to the CPU's FLOPS, then you have the second answer.

This second version is controversial since the FLOPS of the GPU aren't used in computations and some therefore claim that the GPU should not be counted as it simply represents a theoretical number. Others argue that GPUs are used in computation - the computation of shader operations. Both sides, however, agree that there isn't...
