Hello everyone! I can’t believe the end of the year is here already. Needless to say, this was quite a momentous 12 months for us at SuperBot with shipping our first title, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and announcing our game’s first DLC pack with incredible new characters Kat and Emmett, plus a super awesome Heavenly Sword-meets-Wipeout level.
We have been thrilled with all of the positive response the game has been getting, especially from the fans, as this love letter we call PlayStation All-Stars was ultimately crafted just for them. We are so proud that we are able to work on, and deliver, such a cool and long-awaited title for you all.
As a special thank you to all of our supporters and fans of PlayStation, we wanted to send out our holiday card to wish you all a most wonderful Happy Holidays!

Hi everyone. As I am sure you already know from our previous blog posts, Until Dawn is our playable teen horror that puts you in control of eight teenagers, stranded in a remote location, under threat, and trying with all their might to survive ’til sunrise.
At Supermassive we’re working hard to capture the essence of the genre and to give you all you’d expect from your favourite teen horror movies, together with some compelling gameplay and more than a few surprises!
Now, teen horror wouldn’t be teen horror without a few shocks and scares so, given it’s Halloween and all that, we chose to treat you (forgive the pun, I know…) to a short teaser showing hints of some of the scariest moments of the game… without any spoilers, of course.
We like it and hope you do too. Have a killer All Hallows Eve!

This Wednesday, 24th October, we will be releasing a new system software update for PlayStation 3 (version 4.30). With this update, you will be able to view the Trophies on your PlayStation 3 that you’ve earned playing PlayStation Vita games. Now you’ll be able to show off your Trophy grand total to all your friends.
By the beginning of November, 2012, we will terminate the services available through the Life with PlayStation application. In conjunction with the termination, we will stop offering the Life with PlayStation application to new users with the 4.30 update. This includes the conclusion of our participation with Stanford University’s Folding@home, a distributed computing project aimed at understanding protein folding, misfolding and studying the causes of a variety of diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and cancers.
We’d like to thank the more than 15 million users that have participated in the program since it started on PS3 in 2007. PS3 users have donated in total more than 100 million computation hours to the Folding@home project to date, and as a result, contributed greatly to Stanford University’s Alzheimer’s disease research. Considering the contribution PS3 has made to the project, we decided the termination as a result of discussions with Stanford University. (more…)

This week on MUBI we have two choice documentaries for all you film buffs out there. Both are directed by Daniel Raim, and both are must sees! They are explorations of the craft and artistry performed behind the scenes of some of Hollywood’s great classics.
The Man on Lincoln’s Nose
For this short feature, I’m going to leave it to Andrew Horton’s excellent piece written in Cineaste magazine:
“Production design has always been a key part of the Hollywood filmmaking process, but until recently the field received very little critical attention. But thanks to Daniel Raim’s lucid and concise Oscar-nominated documentary about Robert Boyle, one of Hollywood’s best art directors, a general audience now has a chance to savor what these masters of their craft have contributed.
“Boyle tells stories about working on everything from Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, The Birds and Marnie to Fiddler on the Roof. Boyle is quite eloquent and witty in explaining his craft, and others, including fellow art director Henry Bumstead, are also interviewed.
“Raim’s film is a welcome gift to everyone anywhere who wants to know more about what has and continues to make Hollywood Hollywood.”
