100°
2w ago - Sony Producer Timo Thomas revealed 9 ways to dictate like a pro today in Tropico 5 on PS4, as follows:

Hola, PlayStation fans! Today we're excited to talk to you about infamous city-builder and political sim Tropico 5, which arrives on new-generation consoles later this year exclusively on PS4.

This is actually the first time Tropico has ever been released on a PlayStation platform before, and to welcome the PlayStation community to Tropico 5, we'd like to introduce you to the world of Tropico and its lovable dictator El Presidente.

Our beloved leader El Prez is aware that some people may not have had the pleasure of ruling over their own island republic as an iron-fisted dictator before, so he's humbly asked us (ordered us) to prepare a list of 9 useful tips on how to rule in Tropico 5. It's up to you to decide whether you want to be a gruesome tyrant or leader of social justice, but staying in power is no easy feat. So have a read of the list below and ask us any questions about the game in the comments!

1.) Build Your Dream Metropolis

As Presidente, it's up to you to develop the island as you see fit, but sometimes you need to rein in your crazier ambitions. Ask yourself: is an economy based on pineapple farms sustainable? Cheap housing may sound cost-effective,...
 

Video: Run Like Hell is Coming to PS Vita on September 16th

25w ago - Mass Creation Producer Artur Gosk shared a video today announcing that Run Like Hell is coming to PS Vita on September 16th, 2014.

To quote: Hello. My name is Artur Gosk, producer at Mass Creation from Warsaw, Poland.

You may remember me writing here last year about Draw Slasher - a one-of-a-kind arcade slasher on PS Vita. This time I'm here to introduce you to our latest Vita game: Run Like Hell!

Imagine you're a fearless treasure hunter. Place yourself on a peaceful tropical island. Wait! What?! Spotted by a local tribe of hungry cannibals, you have two choices: check out if you taste okay with garlic, or Run Like Hell!

Not quite a "joyrun," you'd imagine. But hey, you got the adrenaline to speed up, and power-ups to slow down the pursuit.

Jump through hoops, slide under obstacles, and escape the pursuit while admiring a vivid tropical island in hand-drawn graphics through procedurally generated levels.

You can sweat in a jungle, run through a calm village, avoid the sun in cool caverns, and even get melancholic at dusk on the beach. There's a bonus level too, but it's much cooler than you might expect.

Run Like Hell! offers 3 game modes: The Great Escape (story mode), Arcade (endless run on various locations), and Online modes...

28w ago - Following up on yesterday's PS4 Firmware 2.00 news, today according to a Sony PlayStation Blogcast the next System Software Update will also include PlayStation 4 XMB Themes with details below.

Well at Gamescom Sony announced System Software Update 2.0 which would bring SharePlay among other features to the platform.

As for the other features, it looks like one of those will be themes. The PlayStation Blog crew was discussing the update on the latest episode of the PlayStation Blogcast and 1 hour and 16 minutes into the episode, they announced that themes would be making their way to the PS4 in this update.

Video: The Unlikely Hero of Styx: Master of Shadows on PS4

32w ago - Game Director Julien Desourteaux posted up a video today spotlighting the unlikely hero of Styx: Master of Shadows on PS4 below.

To quote: Styx: Master of Shadows is a stealth game set in a dark, mature, fantasy universe. Our goal was to return to the roots of the genre and revisit it through a unique character: Styx - a nimble, sneaky, sarcastic goblin.

We want to offer a real challenge to the player, with a game requiring strategy and reflection. Players really have to take care of many details to progress in a level. But to make things fair, players have powerful tools at their disposal that they'll have to use wisely.




Who is Styx?

Fragile and far removed from the brute hero that kicks butt, our goblin is a skillful assassin that excels at hiding.

Obsessed with the Amber, Styx would do absolutely anything to reach the source of this substance - the Heart of the Tree. Extremely cunning, he'll always find a solution to achieve this objective, by whatever means necessary.

What is Amber?

The Amber - a powerful and rare substance - gives Styx a wide array of magical powers, such as invisibility, enhanced senses, or even the ability to summon and control...

To quote: A dread memory hangs above your head. A haunted castle stands in your way. And your family has struggled for generations in the name of redemption and fortune.

In Rogue Legacy, players embark on a harrowing quest in a retro-style Roguelike, filled with brutal challenges and hundreds of upgrades. Rogue Legacy is coming to PS3, PS4, and PS Vita, with all the dark humor and alluring secrets that made it an indie hit on PC.

We spoke with Cellar Door Games Co-founder and Game Designer Teddy Lee about how the team built this addictive RPG, and why they approached the Roguelike in a new way. See below for the full interview, and Teddy's insight into the design process.




Kenny Lee, Teddy's brother and Cellar Door co-founder, also notes:

We hope you're as excited about the release of Rogue Legacy on PlayStation as we are. Releasing a game on consoles has always been a milestone and a bit of a dream for us, and we never would have taken that step forward without your support and enthusiasm.

It means a lot...
