The LittleBigPlanet community has always been fantastic, but the creations published so far in our on-going LittleBigPlanet Karting Beta have been especially brilliant.
Back in March, you may have heard about our UNCHARTED 3 make.believe contest, when we invited UNCHARTED fans to participate in a contest to win the opportunity of a lifetime — the chance to become their very own character in the game. Today, I’m going to share with you the winner and his incredible journey.
Sony make.believe is about fans using their creativity and imagination to do something amazing, and bringing their dreams to life. Earlier this year, Sony gave fans the opportunity to be a part of one of the most popular game series ever, by becoming a character in UNCHARTED 3′s multiplayer mode. They were sent to “Training Camp” to compete in a series of three online challenges, held in the US and Europe.
We’ve just released the first all-gameplay trailer for Darksiders II, which sees the most feared of the horseman of the apocalypse, Death, going up against some of the creatures from the game. The Ancient. The Corrupted. The Holy. The Damned… Death comes for all.
The trailer shows off several key characters from the game, but we wanted to provide additional context as the game marches towards its August 14th release date.
Like his fellow Horsemen, Death is of a race known as Nephilim – among the most powerful beings in the Universe.
It’s a big weekend for San Francisco Bay Area gamers – California Extreme has kicked off in the Santa Clara Hyatt Regency. Jeff and I are planning to swing by Sunday to get some hands-on time with the show’s extensive lineup of classic arcade and pinball games. If you see us at the show, be sure to say hi!
It’s summertime, which means a slower game release schedule and fewer big announcements. On the bright side, it’s the perfect chance to catch up on your gaming backlog. I’ve been checking out Dyad and finishing up Spec Ops: The Line. What are you playing this weekend?
For PS3, with an expanded setting, a fresh story and characters as well as an all-new technical foundation, Risen 2 expands on the success of this popular RPG franchise. Set several years after the end of Risen, the game drops players into a cataclysmic world where raging titans have devastated the planet and pushed humanity to the brink of existence.
On PSN, two PlayStation 2 classics return this week. Grand Theft Auto 3 and War of the Monsters are new to PSN. Enjoy this week’s The Drop.
I won’t pretend I was super excited for the Summer Games to start. But what happened this weekend? My butt, parked in front of the TV, watching Archery, Volleyball, and Fencing. No idea what I was looking at (especially with Fencing), but I really like the Daft Punk helmets they wear. I also put in something like 10 hours into Persona 3 Portable on my PS Vita during that time. The more I play P3P, the more excited I’m getting for Persona 4 Arena and Persona 4 Golden. If you like RPGs at all and haven’t experienced the Persona series, I’m finding Persona 3 to be a great place to start.
Speaking of Persona 4 Arena, find a link about it below, an update on Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC, and a recently announced new PS Vita game. Now, off to watch some… Badminton? Sure.
