Relentless Unveils a BTMF Christmas Advent Calendar PS3 Theme

Relentless Unveils a BTMF Christmas Advent Calendar PS3 Theme 50°
224w ago - Relentless Software CG Supervisor Stewart Jones has unveiled their upcoming Blue Toad Murder Files (BTMF) Christmas Advent Calendar PS3 Theme today.

To quote: With the festive season and Blue Toad Murder Files first birthday approaching we wanted to have an extra 'Christmas Present' in the shape of a theme to hand out with our game. Please have a read to hear what we've done!

The idea of a Blue Toad Christmas Theme was discussed; we're all big fans of Christmas! As a result a brief was created in which we needed to take the village of Little Riddle and add some festive spirit to the design... Oh, and any reference to an advent calendar would be appreciated too!

We decided that the background should stay the same throughout; however, we wanted to use the iconic detective's magnifying glass to show a different image each day during December leading up to Christmas Eve.

Having the number of images in the theme limited to 24 which spookily coincides with the number of windows in a traditional advent calendar seemed like a good omen!

At first we had an actual advent calendar displayed over the whole screen, but in practice this obscured the XMB and no one could easily navigate the options... Fail!

ESA: Follow PlayStation's Lead and Help Protect Video Games

ESA: Follow PlayStation's Lead and Help Protect Video Games 550°
226w ago - Today Rich Taylor of the Entertainment Software Association has shared the following PSA via PlayStation Blog on the effort to help protect video games.

To quote: Today, the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments in the case of Schwarzenegger v. EMA/ Entertainment Software Association. They'll decide whether a California law, which would restrict the sale of "violent" computer and video games, is constitutional.

What does this mean to you, PlayStation fans?

This case could have huge implications for the industry. No one is sure what counts as a "violent" game, so the California law would suppress game developers' imagination and right to self-expression. It would also prohibit retailers from selling the games that might be perfectly legal, "just in case."

It could mean an environment where "God of War" is banned from retail shelves, but the sometimes violent written works detailing Greek myths are still available on bookstores shelves and taught in classrooms.

It's a slippery slope, and the California law is similar to what Congress tried to do to comic books over fifty years ago. In a letter of support for video games, comic book legend...
 

Duke Nukem Forever PS3 Interview with Gearbox Software

Duke Nukem Forever PS3 Interview with Gearbox Software 100°
229w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared an interview today with Gearbox Software covering the upcoming PS3 title Duke Nukem Forever.

To quote: In what some people were comparing to shaking hands with Bigfoot and riding the Loch Ness monster, I can now confirm (as if you didn't know already) that Duke Nukem Forever is very real, it is coming to PS3 and I have played it.

I also grabbed this interview with the President and CEO of Gearbox Software, Randy Pitchford.

How does it feel to have this iconic character in the Gearbox stable?

It's kind of surreal but I really have to forget about that and focus on the mission of finally releasing Duke Nukem Forever. I'm trying not to worry about pressure or expectations.

In what state was the code in when Gearbox first got its hands on Duke Nukem Forever?

The vision was certainly evident and there were several moments of brilliance scattered throughout the game. When 3D Realms shut down, there were eight guys that managed to take everything that had been worked on and stitch it together; they went through war to get it even to this stage. They now call themselves Triptych and they're up on the 10th floor of our offices. They did an...
