The PlayStation Recap


My thumbs have been getting a serious workout lately, with the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood beta keeping me plenty busy in between rounds of Super Stardust HD’s Endless mode (aka “the only way to fly”), which I’m playing in anticipation of Housemarque’s upcoming spiritual successor Dead Nation. I’m also dying to get my mitts on Fallout: New Vegas next week. Then there’s the Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare DLC coming out on October 26th or thereabouts…

Yeah, my next few weeks are pretty much screwed.

    Rock of Ages for PS3: Hilarious New Renaissance trailer


    In KT Tunstall’s new single, she bemoans the fact that she didn’t get to be several of the things she envisioned becoming, one of those things being a rock of ages. Well, fret no more, KT! We’ve got the cure for those incredibly specific blues right here! In our 2011 title, Rock of Ages, you will finally get to be a Rock of Ages. Sisyphus’s Rock of Ages, to be precise. (Maybe you two will grab a drink and reminisce sometime about that one time he was rolling you up a hill and then he slipped, and you rolled all the way back down…or the other time that happened.)

    The guys at ACE Team have put together this wonderfully lighthearted, action-packed trailer that highlights the rush you’ll from careening into would-be obstacles at high speed. Sure, your opponent’s going to have some defenses set up, but fortune (and physics) generally favors the boulder. (We’re never going to run out of rock puns, folks. I could talc all day about them.)

    This trailer will also give you some glimpses at the new stylings of the Renaissance Era levels, a couple of the single-player bosses, some of the defensive units and our brand new logo (now with 100% more spinning cow!). After Rock of Ages debuted at this year’s E3, it quickly became one of the most talked-about games at the show, for both its distinct visual styles, and for its humor. After seeing this video, we think that you’ll be inclined to agree.

    Look for it to roll out onto PlayStation Network in Spring 2011!
