Axiom Verge: The Secrets of Speedrun Mode on PS4 and PS Vita

Axiom Verge: The Secrets of Speedrun Mode on PS4 and PS Vita 700°
5w ago - Thomas Happ Games LLC Programmer / Artist / Designer / Composer Tom Happ shared the secrets of Speedrun Mode today in Axiom Verge on PS4 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: Hey everyone - this is Tom Happ, the sole developer of Axiom Verge. I did all of the art, music, design, animation, and programming as a labor of love.

After 5 years of working on Axiom Verge in isolation, I'm finally getting close to launch. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on it. I'm pretty proud of what I've been able to make as a team of 1, but the ultimate judges will be you, the players.

One of the newest features I added was a Speedrun Mode. For years I've loved watching ridiculously skilled players 100%-ing great games like Super Metroid, Shovel Knight, Guacamelee, and more. The recent AGDQ festival also made me think deeply about creating features specifically for the speedrunning community.

To understand how Speedrun Mode works, it's important to understand a little about Axiom Verge. In Axiom Verge, you play as Trace, a scientist who wakes up after a lab accident in a strange, alien world. Similar to classic games like Super Metroid, Master Blaster, Bionic Commando, and Contra, the game involves a mix of exploration, new weapons and powerups, new enemies to battle and epic boss fights....

17w ago - Today R*Q introduced the all-new first person mode in Grand Theft Auto V on PS4 with a PlayStation 4 video below!

To quote: First Person Mode gives Grand Theft Auto V players on PS4 the chance to explore the world of Los Santos and Blaine County directly through the eyes of their character, revealing all the world's glorious details in an entirely new way.

It's also available at the touch of a button so you can easily switch back and forth between perspectives.

Alongside the new First Person mode, Grand Theft Auto V for PS4 features hundreds of additions and enhancements including 1080p resolution at 30FPS. Grand Theft Auto V for PS4 is coming November 18th.




And don't forget, you can transfer your previous Grand Theft Auto Online characters and progression from PS3 or Xbox 360...

Video: Pix the Cat: PS4 Exclusive Arena Mode Details by Pastagames

Video: Pix the Cat: PS4 Exclusive Arena Mode Details by Pastagames 50°
23w ago - Pastagames Designer Nadim Haddad shared a video and details today on a PS4 exclusive arena mode in Pix the Cat for PlayStation 4 below.

To quote: Hi folks, my name is Nadim and I do game design at Pastagames. We are launching Pix the Cat on PS4 and PS Vita (with cross buy support) in early October, and we have a new game mode exclusive for PS4 players: the Arena!

Call me old-school, but the most outrageous fun I have when playing games is with friends, at home, facing the same screen, hearing laughter or frustration after a quirky situation. I grew up with Bomberman and am still playing Towerfall just to enjoy shoving my buddy's controller away when he's winning or whining too much!

We've been wanting to make a nervy, rewarding couch-multiplayer game for years at Pastagames, and Pix the Cat turned out to be the best opportunity to satisfy this multiplayer urge.




In the Arcade Mode, you control a restless cat in a dimensional maze. You collect ducklings that line up in a tail behind you - and then deliver them on targets to open the gates of the next level.

The core Pix gameplay sets solid grounds for a feisty Arena brawl. So we added three other cats to make a party of (up to) four players...
