Video: 3D Dot Game Heroes for PS3 is Coming to Europe

Video: 3D Dot Game Heroes for PS3 is Coming to Europe 50°
268w ago - Today Southpeak Games European PR Manager Rob Burman has announced that 3D Dot Game Heroes for PS3 is coming to Europe.

To quote: I'm here to announce a brand new PlayStation 3 exclusive: 3D Dot Game Heroes - a nostalgic wonder-fuelled time-travelling trip back to the glory days of 8-bit gaming. And it's coming to Europe this May. Rejoice!

3D Dot Games Heroes takes its inspiration from classic role-playing games released on ancient consoles that are now appearing on the Antiques Roadshow.

In fact, people who played videogames throughout the 1980s will fall to their knees and weep when they see Dot's many homages to the games that defined their childhood (I've seen it happen). It's a virtual trip down memory lane complete with swords, wizards and monsters.





However, this is modern retro, so it has splendid PlayStation 3-powered graphics that give traditional sprites a new 3D lease of life, simple pick-up-and-play controls, which hark back to a time when you didn't need a load of buttons just to open your inventory, and a fun tongue-in-cheek storyline with plenty of links to the past... ahem.

But, one of the greatest features of 3D Dot Game Heroes (and there...

Video: Sony's PS3 Movie Service Qriocity Coming February 2010 500°
268w ago - Just under a month ago we reported on a 'Qriocity' trademark filed by Sony, and sonyinsider has now made available a video of the on-demand movie service that is coming to PS3 in February, 2010.

To quote from the video's caption: "We shot exclusive video footage during CES 2010 of a new Sony service called Qriocity, starting in February, and it is the basically the beginning of the Sony Online Service.

Sony is going to bring streaming SD and HD to the consumer, but we're not sure on pricing and I'm starting to believe there might be a subscription model. It's significance is so strong that it will be added as a main icon on the XMB and as a button on many 2010 Sony remote controls that belong to networked TV's and Blu-ray players.




Movies will be available in HD and SD for streaming, and have titles from 20th Century Fox, Paramount, Walt Disney Pictures, Lionsgate, Warner Brothers, Universal, MGM, and of course Sony Pictures. I was able to watch the HD version of The Taking Of Pelham 1 2 3 for an extended version of time and felt that it was similiar to 720p/1080i quality with the 6mbps connection they had,...
 

Video: Coming to PSN this Week: Magic Orbz Winter Pack for PS3

Video: Coming to PSN this Week: Magic Orbz Winter Pack for PS3 200°
268w ago - Director of Business Development at Creat Studios Scott Hyman has shared a video, and revealed today that Magic Orbz Winter Pack for PS3 will be hitting PSN this week.

To quote: It's Scott Hyman, back yet again with news about more fun content from TikGames-Creat Studios. I hope everyone enjoyed a great holiday season.

First off, we're making a change. The coolest brick-breaker on PlayStation Network has a new name, and some great new content to go along with it.

What was once Magic Ball is now MAGIC ORBZ!

So, I know what you're thinking: "That is the greatest name that I've ever heard in the history of gaming, and I wish that I thought of it myself." No, that's not it? OK, then it's, "I am so impressed. Everything really does sound much better if you just add a 'z' at the end."

Not that, either? How about, "Well, now that it's called Magic Orbz, I simply have to play it. How could I possibly pass that up?" See...that IS what you're thinking. You just don't know it yet.





But seriously, we like the sound of it, and we like to play it even more. And to make you really love the name, we made a new...

IW Hints of New Callsign Titles Coming in Modern Warfare 2 DLC 250°
268w ago - Just before the weekend Infinity Ward's FourZeroTwo aka Robert Bowling hinted that upcoming Modern Warfare 2 DLC may contain new callsign titles in addition to the usual maps.

He also tweeted this weekend of another MW2 playlist update to prevent the spread of the recent "ice skating" / speed hack (video below).

Below are the related Twitter tweets:

"Leads meeting @infinityward this morning; Lots of #MW2 DLC discussion got me wondering, what would YOU suggest as some new callsign titles?"

"Another #MW2 playlist update to prevent the spread of the "ice skating" / speed hack. Will prevent matchmaking into modded games."

"@fourzerotwo so it was a hack?" via @xblfan2001 - Yes. These aren't bugs in game code but game files being changed by users on modded kits."



 

Video: Alien Zombie Death Coming Soon to PSP via PSN

Video: Alien Zombie Death Coming Soon to PSP via PSN 100°
269w ago - The Art & Design at PomPom Games Michael Michael (yes, that's his real name!) has revealed today alongside a video that Alien Zombie Death is coming soon to PSP via PlayStation Network.

To quote: We are PomPom games. Independent developer of some of the finest retro-yet-modern-kind-of videogames since a very long time ago. We are just 2 guys (silly name and Miles Visman) with some help from a rather excellent sound dude, James Drabble.

PomPom games are but a whisker away for their latest slice of RSI inducing, finger twisting, brow soaking shoot-em-up action called... ALIEN ZOMBIE DEATH on PSP minis.

We were kind of digging this new-ish breed of game : the survival shooter, and wanted to have a go. We have also had a bit of a longing for doing something platform-y ( when I say we, I mean me throwing a strop at Miles, when I don't get my way ) so "we" concocted this scenario:-

"Somewhere far far away in a random solar system, a lone space man dies... horribly. Take control of said fateful space man as he battles to his end against the dreaded Alien Zombies! Using a standard laser gun and a few pickups along the way, make sure you take at as many of those Alien Zombie suckers before they take you down. It's that simple. It's Alien Zombie Death."
