Official Review: Slam Bolt Scrappers

March 28, 2011 | | 18 Comments

Fire Hose Games and Sony Online Entertainment are proud to present to us Slam Bolt Scrappers, a new and quirky puzzle/action game that is available on PSN for you to acquire (with money) and download (with the internets) to your PS3 HDD ASAP. Here are some fine words from them about this Frankestein (in a good way) creation:

Build and brawl in this fast and frantic mash-up – exclusively on the PlayStation®Network! Race your opponents to build the most powerful towers in Slam Bolt City while defending against
deceptively adorable baddies and hugely epic bosses. Create weapons that shoot lasers, drills, missiles, and more to annihilate your adversary. Battle in four-player co-op campaign mode, or go head-to-head for more brawling and block-building awesomeness.
Game Features:

* Build tons of devastating weapons
* Competitive multiplayer! Up to four players can join the brawl, fighting each other or computer-controlled enemies
* Cooperative campaign where up to four players work together to save the city, unlocking new weapons, levels, characters and hats along the way
* Unique gameplay combining building and brawling that is easy learn, but takes skill to master
* Tons of replayability from the many weapon options, built in challenges, multiplayer modes, and unique levels

DICE: We Are Coming For You

March 28, 2011 | | 10 Comments

When the competition is insanely high, you can’t afford to mess up. One of your competitors will eat you alive.

And DICE has a warning for any developer that might trip and stumble: watch out. In speaking to OPM, DICE’s general manager, Karl-Magnus Troedsson, showed great confidence in their upcoming title, Battlefield 3. Remember, the Call of Duty guys have been using the same engine since 2005, while the Frostbite 2 engine is kicking ass and taking names.

“Our competitors are getting lazy. They’re using the same engine, the same recipe for building a game. At some point you need to take that leap. I haven’t seen them take that leap since a long time ago. We are doing that now. They had better watch out. We are coming for them.”

Dreamcast Games I’d Like to See on PSN

March 27, 2011 | | 13 Comments

Dreamcast LogoWith Sony and Sega bringing us Dreamcast titles, I thought I would bring up a few gems I would like to see come to PSN. The Dreamcast was one of the best consoles in its time and had many great games, the majority of which were overlooked. Here is a few I would like to see Sega bring to PSN.

#1. Record of Lodoss War

Think Diablo and you know exactly how this game plays. This was Hack and Slash at its finest when it was released. I don’t know of a lot of people who actually played it, or even knew of its release.
