To quote: I challenge you to log in to PlayStation Home this Thursday, February 18th and try to wade through the wide assortment of new stuff we'll have waiting for you.

We're talking two new game spaces (MotorStorm and LocoRoco), two new personal spaces (LocoRoco and PlanetLand), a new Mall (full of Star Wars gear - including lightsabers, Stormtrooper costumes, and more!), new videos in the Theater (for The Tester, and SOCOM: Fire Team Bravo) and events galore.

262w ago - Zipper Interactive Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has posted yet another installment in their MAG PlayStation 3 developer tips series, with today's video dubbed Direct Action.

To quote: For today's Zip-Tips, Lead Tester and owner of the world's largest video game t-shirt collection, Jay Embry, walks us through the popular Direct Action class in MAG.

If you're the visual type we have this nifty Direct Action video narrated by Jay himself, followed by his handy tips. Enjoy!

Hello, this is Jay! The Direct Action soldier is invaluable to the team whether they're attacking or defending. If attacking, it's going to be your job to do as much damage as possible to key defensible points – like using your rockets to take out Defensive Emplacement Turrets.

Atlus Unveils 3D Dot Game Heroes Editor for PlayStation 3

262w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has unveiled the editor today for 3D Dot Game Heroes on PlayStation 3.

To quote: Most games ask you to assume the role of a hero. Often, you don't have any say in who they are or what they look like, and in some cases the customization options you're given are limited.

The game may be all homage, but it's certainly not out to limit anyone's homagination! *crickets chirp*

Err... Let's dive into the all-powerful, easy-to-use editor, shall we? One of the custom characters that comes included on the disc. I'll call him... Monkey Kong?

Creating a custom character in 3DDGH (my fingers thank me for the abbreviation, so please note it) is more than just figuring out what it will be and look like; you have to animate it, too. Before the self-proclaimed "artistically-challenged" gamers run for the hills, snapping paintbrushes between their thumbs and index fingers, I'll point out a couple of things.

First, the North American release of...

To quote: The weekend is almost here and we're closing our first week of Zip-Tips out with help from our resident "designer in rock," Jason Olander - better known to frequent MAG.com forum visitors as BenjaminBreegg.

Today, Jason drops the knowledge on MAG's skill tree system to teach you how to make a better character. As always, we'll begin with a prep video followed by Jason's words of wisdom:

"Hey there, this is Jason and it's a fact that the skill tree is the heart of your character, and the place where a soldier's identity is forged.
