What a weekend! Not only do some folks in the United States have a little extra time to play video games over the holiday, but it’s PAX Prime 2014! What better way to celebrate than getting ready for an interstellar mission teeming with teleportation, alien baddies, and super-cool effects? Velocity 2X is coming to PS4 and PS Vita this week.
Eight years ago today, Volition introduced the world to Johnny Gat: the badass lieutenant of the 3rd Street Saints with a knack for bloodshed. Over the years, he waged war against the Vice Kings in Saints Row, took brutal revenge for his lost love against The Ronin in Saints Row 2, selflessly sacrificed himself to save his friends in Saints Row: The Third, and triumphantly returned to eviscerate the Zin Empire in Saints Row IV.
This week, the game industry makes its way to our backyard as PAX Prime 2014 finally opens its doors in Seattle! We couldn’t be more thrilled to have this chance to show off Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on to gamers from the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Happy Friday! We’re pushing a patch today that addresses many of the matchmaking issues taking place in Factions mode for The Last of Us Remastered. You should see improved matchmaking all around. It will be rolling out over the next twenty-four hours globally. Look for the update when you turn on your system today.
It was just another morning at FuturLab, I had just sat down at my desk, waiting for my PC to boot up, hot cup of coffee in my hand. I was getting ready to rock, when James walked over with a serious look on his face: “Need to talk to you man… In the boardroom!”
Here’s the thing about PS Vita exclusive Murasaki Baby: it’s one of the strangest, most subversive games I’ve played. It seems like studio Ovosonico designed it to deliberately get under the skin of established game conventions, and the result is something I’ve never quite seen before.
PAX Prime is nearly here, and we’re bringing the goods. If you’re headed to Seattle this year, swing by the PlayStation booth (#122) to play more than 30 new and unreleased games like Bloodborne, The Order: 1886, Until Dawn, LittleBigPlanet 3, Far Cry 4, Secret Ponchos, Axiom Verge, Apotheon, and Helldivers. WHEW! In addition to playable games, we’ll have some fun activities in our booth and panel sessions. See below for all of the info.
