Thomas Was Alone: Out Today on PS3 and PS Vita With DLC

50°
97w ago - Designer Mike Bithell announced today that Thomas Was Alone is officially released today on PS3 and PS Vita complete with DLC.

To quote: It's done. A game which began as a Flash game made over a weekend because my girlfriend was away and I was a bit bored, is today coming out on PS3 and PS Vita via PSN and PS+.

That last sentence was a bit of a mouthful. I apologize.

Thomas Was Alone is a game about friendship and jumping. As you can see from the images and videos no doubt littered amongst this post, it is also very much about rectangles.

If you've got PlayStation Plus and you're in the US, you'll get 20% off the game for a limited time, because of the Spring Fever sale. Which is awesome. Daffodils rock.

This version will also give you first access to some new stuff. There's a new DLC episode which tells the story of Benjamin, a new square with a jetpack and big ideas, and a commentary mode in the main game where you can listen to me going on and on about how clever I was putting the game together.

It's spellbinding. I'm listening to it as I write this, because I'm on a train and it's either that or Bowie's new album, which I've listened to twice. You should really listen to Bowie's album too. I'm not here to plug that...
 

Video: Assassin's Creed III: The Redemption for PS3 Out Today

97w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani shared a video spotlighting Assassin's Creed III: The Redemption for PS3 which arrives today.

Below are the details, to quote: The final chapter of Assassin's Creed III's three-part Tyranny of King Washington single-player DLC series is nearly upon us! The mad King George Washington has retreated within his New York stronghold and Ratonhnhake:ton must prepare an assault against Washington's incredible fortress.

As the stakes continue to rise in Ratonhnhake:ton's pursuit of Washington, so too must his strength and ferocity. Calling on an ancient source of might, Ratonhnhake:ton must once again risk his sanity to embark on a mysterious and dangerous Sky Journey in order to release the Power of the Bear.

The Power of the Bear enables Ratonhnhake:ton to strike the ground with such immeasurable force that all nearby enemies will be hurled into the air or crushed into the ground. Even more remote enemies will be staggered by the concentration of will and raw power, making the Power of the Bear an effective method of crowd control.




Like Ratonhnhake:ton's other abilities (Eagle and Wolf), the Power of the Bear can even be used from rooftops, unleashing a devastating...

Sony Unveils God Mode, Storms PlayStation Network on April 23, 2013

250°
97w ago - Old School Games Producer Nick Madonna announced via Sony's blog today that God Mode storms PlayStation Network on April 23, 2013.

To quote: Old School Games is a new game studio launched by Saber Interactive whose focus is to deliver low-cost, high-quality downloadable titles.

Using Saber's technology and development platform, we strive to create digital games that look like retail products. With our first release, God Mode, we wanted to create a lighthearted throwback experience, which focuses on arcade-style action over story. We came up with a classic premise - fighting to get out of Hell - then wrapped it in a third-person shooter with 3D graphics on par with full-price titles.

Finally, we added a slew weapons: plasma launchers, rail guns and what we affectionately call the "buzzsaw," in order to wipe out waves and waves of demonic hordes.

We decided that God Mode should be less about deep narrative and more about action. This approach gave us the ability to really go crazy and build a unique world full of plenty of characters to shoot, blow up, impale and maim.

After making this decision early on in the design process, the designers...
