• ThatOtherDev has released his Homebrew Game Hero City 2 (v1.3) for the Playstation 3. Previous versions has only been available for Wii & Windows. The game is very interesting, makes fun and runs nice on homebrew enabled consoles 

    Hero City 2 is an open world superhero game. You run and jump around punching monsters and robots and collecting things and in the process of doing so you upgrade your abilities and unlock new tasks. It’s a massive step up from the first Hero City.

    There are some differences between this and the original Wii version. Most of which I hope to correct in future updates. But overall it’s a pretty decent port. It runs at 60 frames per second in HD and looks exactly as it should.

    I think it’s probably the best homebrew game on PS3 (though that’s obviously subjective and I’m definitely biased). It’s certainly the one I’m most proud of. So I hope you like it. Feedback is always appreciated.

    Controls:
    Left analog stick = controls the player
    Right analog stick = controls the camera
    L1 = left punch
    R1 = right punch
    X = jump (hold to charge up)
    Square = save
    Triangle = return to the title screen

      This game is a great base for something potentially spectacular! All that is needed is a tweaked improved combat system (even projectiles) and more "easter egg style" hidden elements and you got a great game

      That's pretty cool, it looks like an improved version of a superman game I had on the 360.

      Before today I had no idea superman 64 existed, after seeing that I can only hope I can learn to forget that it exists.

      It was so bad it crashed safari half way through the video.

      LOL. I had this game on my DrV64 it was bloody terrible. Thatotherdev proves he is extremely talented homebrewer and out strips even some N64 games interms of quality in his releases

      BTW: you need to see this review by angry nerd :P

      Wow, that is truly shocking, it would be good to see what ThatOtherDev could achieve with the budget the muppet's behind this crock had.

      You know what? you acted like an ass at least admit that instead of saying *Im not trying* you done it. A misspelled thanks cannot ruin the site's rep or even a whole article.
      [spoiler]
      Now if you want to join again the Hax staff, please many of US will be happy of seeing you again on this side of the track instead of correcting me and saying *Not trying to be an ass*.
      Make up your mind crystalwolf, If you want to moderate again or anything you know *who* contact to make it happen.

      Kinda rant alert:


      I repeat to make crystal clear what im saying = a misspelled thanks cannot ruin an article and i noticed that you have some beef with me with no reason at all.
      Not even Pirate, Greg or Annelies will said that to me and if im not wrong you were once an s-mod. (maybe im wrong don't know).

      [/spoiler]

      THANKS for the heads up.

      Regards

      Hellsing9

      P.s: Problem solved all fine with Crystalwolf i hope he come backs someday
