Video: Skill-based Stunt Racer FutureGrind is Coming to PS4

50°
5d ago - Milkbag Games Co-Founder Owen Goss shared a PS4 video today announcing that the skill-based stunt racer FutureGrind is coming to PlayStation 4.

To quote: Hi, we're Owen Goss and Matt Rix, and together we are Milkbag Games, the two-person team making FutureGrind. We are extremely excited to announce that FutureGrind will be coming to PS4!




FutureGrind is a game all about skill, tricks, and speed. We think it's a bit like Uniracers meets OlliOlli. The game is played on a track made of rails that run through a 3D environment: some rails are blue, some are red, and some are white.

As the player, you control a futuristic, motorcycle-sized vehicle called a "grinder". Your grinder has two wheels: one blue, and one red. You have to get from the start of the track to the end in one piece, while scoring the most points possible.

Be careful: do NOT let the wrong wheel touch. Your blue wheel can touch blue rails, your red wheel can touch red rails, but touch the wrong rail and you'll cause a short circuit. Watch out, short circuiting leads to, well, a bit of a mess.

Survival is important in FutureGrind, but it's really just the baseline. In order to succeed, you'll need to get good at doing chains...

Sony Announces MouseCraft Brings Cheese-Based Puzzling to PS Vita

50°
54w ago - Curve Studios PR and Marketing Manager Rob Clarke announced today on Sony's blog that MouseCraft brings cheese-based puzzling to PS Vita.

Below are the details, to quote: Hey everyone, Rob from Curve here! It seems like only a few weeks ago I was here talking about our Mega bundle of 2013 games. This week we're very happy to announce something brand new: an indie puzzle game called MouseCraft.

MouseCraft takes some of the most recognizable elements of classic puzzle games and combines them to create something that's completely new and great fun to play, especially on a portable device like PS Vita. The basic gameplay is very simple: Your goal is to lead a group of mice through a machine to find the cheese at the other end of the level.

You don't control the mice directly however, but instead control their environment through the use of many different types of classic 'Tetromino' blocks that can be dropped onto the level. Imagine the careful strategy and planning of a game like Lemmings with the blocks and fast-paced decision making of Tetris, and you've got an idea of how MouseCraft works.

There are over 50 levels in the campaign mode, and as you play the path and methods of getting to the exits becomes more and more complicated, introduce different blocks that can used to...

80w ago - Today the previous PlayStation 3 rumors have been confirmed as a new flash-based 12GB PS3 console has been spotted on retailer shelves in both the US and Canada for $199.

Below are the details, to quote: "Following its release in Europe last year, the heavily rumored Flash-based PlayStation 3 is now on sale in the United States and Canada, The Verge has confirmed.

Sony's first low-storage model of the venerable console is now on shelves at Best Buy selling for $199.99. It's also available for sale at Canadian retailer Future Shop.

Sony had resisted selling a lower-capacity console in light of its emphasis on digital game and media downloads, even though Microsoft has always offered a low-storage Xbox 360. Both systems support adding additional storage through USB."

Finally, from Sony Hardware Associate Brand Marketing Manager Crystal MacKenzie:

At PlayStation, we want to provide the best place to play. That’s why today, we are pleased to announce the North American launch of our brand new PS3 12GB System for $199.99 (MSRP). This new 12GB system is the perfect way to play exclusive titles found only on PlayStation*, and to get access to the entertainment services offered through...

101w ago - Today an online Sony patent has surfaced that outlines a method to award PS3 Trophies based on disc access, possibly to be used with the upcoming PlayStation 4 / PS4 console as well.

Below are the details, as follows: Called "Method and Apparatus for awarding trophies", the patent explains a way to award trophies, even for games that don't natively support them...

"A method and apparatus for adding trophy support games that do not have trophies without modifying the original game," the patent states.

"The method and apparatus are used to detect particular disk access, use the detected disk access as potential trophy triggers in games, and recognize the triggers while a game is played. Trophies are awarded based on the triggers, and the awarded trophies are stored."

The diagram below also gives an idea of how it works:

"A method for assigning one or more trophies to a user, comprising: accessing media content; defining one or more trophies; defining a trigger associated with the media content; detecting the trigger during media content access; and assigning the one or more trophies to a user account that is associated with the...
