Here’s a video about Day 1 Studio’s new shooter, Fracture. It’ll be published by LucasArts, and has as its calling card the ability to alter terrain. So far, it looks like a rental to me – I haven’t seen anything that’s said “buy me!”.
flOw has to be the most unique and simple game on the PS3, it’s a game I always show to people when they come over for the first time. Everyone I’ve shown it to really likes it. The expansion will add a new creature, a new enemy, and new food. Sounds good to me. The new creature looks like like a small circle surrounded by hooked barbs, and pressing any button will close the barbs and thus protecting your creature from your enemies, then releasing the button will send you into a spin which you can use to attack. The new enemy is similar to a puffer fish, when you get close it puffs up with spikes all over its body. Another addition is to the multiplayer, you can play as two different creatures. Overall this expansion will add about 15% more flOw for you to enjoy. No release date at this time.
Below is the trailer for flower made by Thatgamecompany, same people who made flOw. I have no clue what the gameplay would be like in flower, your guess is as good as mine. But it looks very interesting.
The Folding@Home project has reached over 1,000 TFLOP. The PS3 alone accounts for 7/10th of that. Keep in mind that these stats change all the time. But pretty impressive. The PS3 Donor name is actually #1. Check out this link.
Our PS3Blog.net Folding@Home team is currently ranked 661 of 68067, not bad for only 91 people on our team at the moment. Keep those PS3’s folding, it’s for a good cause.
It’s very simple to join our team. Once you’ve launched the Folding@Home program, just press the triangle button to bring up the Options panel, select “Identity”, and then select “Join an exiting team”. After that, just enter PS3Blog.net’s team number 55054. And that’s it, your now part of the team.
Even PC users can join the team. I have my work PC running the folding@home software as well. You can download the PC version here.
Last Thursday’s PlayStation Store update changed the price of flOw to $5.00 for a limited time. It will go back to the normal price of $8.00 on May 24, 2007.
When I first got the game, I had my girl friend try it out. And she couldn’t put the controller down for a few hours. It’s a pretty fun game, it’s very simple and relaxing. It’s a nice change. But, honestly I wish there was an update for flOw, I rarely play it anymore. Add a few more creatures, levels, etc. And I’ll pick it up again.
