The newest installment in Insomniac Games' long-running Ratchet & Clank series released on PlayStation 3 this Tuesday. Since we didn't receive the game until launch, our review is still a work in progress. Matt Helgeson joined me for an informative look at this game that takes some of the familiar elements of the series in new directions. The game incorporates tower defense elements and cooperative play into the manic bolt-collecting gameplay the series is known for. We explore all of these elements in this Test Chamber episode.

Sony files patent for transforming Move/DualShock controller

Sony patents hybrid DualShockMove thing
A newly discovered Sony patent application reveals a device that literally sticks together the functionality of the PlayStation Move and its Navigation Controller with the form factor of the DualShock. The “Hybrid Separable Motion Controller,” filed last May, consists of two halves of a standard DualShock shape, each with a Move-style orb at the top.

Both sides have accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers to sense motion, and can be operated either separately or locked together into one unit. It’s designed such that games will be able to detect the configuration in use.

We’re asking Sony if the company intends to use this concept in the PS3 or future devices.

The Walking Dead Assault rushes iOS

The plague of Robert Kirkman’s undead has once again spread to iDevices, the comic creator revealed through his Twitter account today. The Walking Dead: Assault is an official episodic adaptation of the comic series published by Kirkman’s own Skybound Entertainment. The first episode “Days Gone By” is available now for a reduced price of $ 1.99.

The Walking Dead: Assault is a top-down strategy game at its core, propositioning players with corralling together their band of survivors and mowing down hordes of the undead. You build teams composed of comic favorites like Rick, Glenn, Carl, Andrea and more, and complete missions ripped from those same pages.

You can download the first episode right now through iTunes – the app is Universal and has support for iPhone 5 Retina displays. Other games within The Walking Dead universe include Telltale’s The Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, a first-person shooter from Terminal Reality due next year.
