Update: EEEEEEE I’M DOWNLOADING FROM PSN NOW
(Just to clarify, I’m in the US, don’t know when it’s hitting for everyone else)
So here we are. Tomorrow is PSN launch, XBLA right after. Can’t say I’ve ever had so much of my future riding on one game before. I’d be a lot more nervous, but I spent a good deal of time today playing around with online. 4 player platforming, no lag, it’s absolutely incredible. King of the Hill matches feel amazing. I’m not sure what Over the Top did to pull off this online wizardry, but I’m blown away by how well it works.
Of course, there’s a lot more to the game than online King of the Hill, and I’m still amazed by the excitement I’m seeing online for the game. We made the best game that we possibly could, so now all I can do is cross my fingers. I don’t think any fans of the original Flash games (hey that’s you guys!) will be disappointed, I’m super proud that we were able to keep the spirit of the Flash games, while still giving way more content than any 10 dollar game has a right to.
To celebrate, I’ll be hopping online for some King of the Hill and Races on the PS3 on Tuesday, and on the 360 on Wednesday. Hmm, wonder if that old Bluetooth headset still works… I’m DrNeroCF on both, see you guys online!
Just don’t forget to play through the Story at your own pace later on, there’s plenty to see and do on that side, too. And I want to see everyone online decked out in crazy accessory combinations, so you’ll have to play some Story mode to earn those!
And I have no idea when exactly the game will be up on PSN, but I promise the wait is worse for me than for you!
(Please don’t ask about Wii or Steam versions in the comments, we hear ya! 😛 )
