  • News Lights, Camera, Party! Brings Motion Madness to PSN

    Smooth moves

    We’re probably in the minority, but we love a good mini-game compilation. There’s something exhilarating about hopping between a host of madcap mechanics – even if the experience can end up feeling a bit shallow as a result. Frima Studio’s upcoming PlayStation Move-powered Lights, Camera, Party! looks to embody everything...

    Adding to the tally of cross compatible PS3 and Vita titles, Canadian developer Frima Studio has officially raised the curtain on Zombie Tycoon 2: Brainhov’s Revenge. The sequel to 2009’s PlayStation Mini promises to expand upon the original’s silly sense of humour and real-time strategy gameplay. It will include new zombies, sharper...
