Sony Announces Close Castles Coming to PS4, Play at PS Experience

50°
13w ago - Sony's Asher Vollmer announced that Close Castles is coming to PS4, and PlayStation 4 fans can play it at PS Experience!

To quote: I have a love/hate relationship with real time strategy games. I love them, but I hate playing them.

Let's face it: RTSes are miserable pain engines designed to give players the worst possible experience. They're kind of fun (though deeply stressful) right up until the first interaction with another player and then it's all downhill for the next forty-or-so minutes.

You play until someone gives up. They are lonely exercises in sadomasochism. Anyway hello. My name is Asher Vollmer and I intend to fix all that with my new game, Close Castles.

I made Threes because I love small, minimalist games. Close Castles is no different. The games are incredibly quick: they average around three minutes each on the fastest game speed.

Buliding the game for a controller has inspired me to make the controls as simple as possible. You move your cursor around the field and press a button to build structures. What you build and where you build it will determine you and your opponent's collective fate.

The game is built for local multiplayer, so there's no hidden information. This means...
 

Far Cry 4 PS4: Keys to Kyrat and Share Play Differences Explained

500°
15w ago - Sony Developer and Publisher Relations Vice President Adam Boyes outlined the Keys to Kyrat and explained the Share Play differences for Far Cry 4 on PS4 today.

To quote: Since the announcement of PlayStation 4 in 2013, one of the key pillars of the system has been its unique social features.

Of course, social interaction was built into the very foundation of the system, with features including DualShock 4′s Share button to easily share gameplay images and videos on social networks, the ability to live broadcast to Twitch or Ustream, and more recently Share Play (check out our walkthrough here in case you're not up to speed).




We're always looking for ways to expand PS4's social features, which is why I'm so excited about our partnership with Ubisoft on Far Cry 4. As I discussed during our E3 2014 press conference, Far Cry 4 on PlayStation has an exclusive mode called Keys to Kyrat.

Anyone who buys Far Cry 4 on PS4 or PS3 will receive 10 keys to send to your PSN friends, letting them join you in Kyrat for a free two-hour trial period, even if they don't own a copy of the game. As an added bonus, your friends will get a currency boost for playing the trial if they end up purchasing the full...
 

Telltale at PS Experience: Game of Thrones, Tales From the Borderlands

50°
15w ago - Telltale Games Community Lead Laura Perusco invites fans to play Game of Thrones and Tales From the Borderlands at PS Experience next month with details below.

To quote: Are you headed to Las Vegas for the PlayStation Experience Event in December? Telltale will be there too!

First up, there's a special Telltale Games panel where we'll be discussing the past, present, and future of Telltale and adventure games.

Here's the great thing about this panel though: since our games are all about making choices and then living with the consequences, YOU'LL get to choose the questions. Take this opportunity to grill our brave little band of panelists about the Telltale-y stuff you've always wanted to know!




It's not all talk though - we'll have games for you to play too. Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series will BOTH be playable on the show floor. You'll find them in Sony's booth, so be sure to check them out amongst all the other awesomeness!

Speaking of our upcoming releases, don't miss the shiny new Tales from the Borderlands trailer we just released this morning! I think this is easily the most amusing video we've ever had the fun of producing. Seriously, get...
 

Video: Double Fine at PlayStation Experience: Play Grim Fandango

300°
15w ago - Double Fine Founder Tim Schafer shared a video today inviting fans to play Grim Fandango at PlayStation Experience.

To quote: Hello PlayStation Nation! The Bone Wagon is headed to Las Vegas!

We've got a shiny new build of Grim Fandango Remastered and we're bringing it to PlayStation Experience!

This is your last chance to get your hands on Manny before the game is released, so please come to the Double Fine booth and check it out. I'll be there too, loitering around, signing stuff, talking about the old days, and giving out free hugs. REMASTERED hugs.

Also, we'll be showing the game running for the very first time on PS Vita! It's a great way to play the game, and a beautiful little handful of bones. I'm not sure what that last phrase means, but it sounds poetic so I'm going to leave it in.




And hopefully there will be even more surprises once you get there! So come see Manny Calavera in the flesh! (In the bones? Well, you know what I mean.)

See you there, and... Viva la Revolucion!
 

Why Share Play is Blocked for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4

550°
16w ago - Following up on the recent CoD: AW DLC Unlocker, today Activision explained why Share Play (which has been available since PS4 Firmware 2.00) is currently blocked for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4.

To quote from GameZone: "Share Play is a new feature that was introduced as part of the recent PS4 firmware 2.00 update.

Our engineers didn't have access to it before it launched, so we haven't had a chance to evaluate it to see how it will impact the experience across all modes of play," Activision told us.

"Of course we wouldn't include a feature in our game without having the chance to test it. Once we've fully analyzed its performance, we'll determine how to support it going forward."
