Football-player sheep destroy obstacles in front of them. Ninja sheep jump over obstacles, and gunner sheep have projectiles. With those rules in mind, you must guide your woolly charges to the ewes they’ve come to rescue.

Idiot Squad by Hydravision, a new PS Mini coming March 27 in North America and March 28 in Europe, seems designed for anyone but idiots. Your three classes of sheep soldier must be directed around grid-based puzzles using a limited selection of arrow items, much like the puzzles in Sega’s classic Chu Chu Rocket. But way more complicated! Can anyone’s brain handle that?

JoystiqPS Minis’ ‘Idiot Squad’ mashes up Chu Chu Rocket, strategy, and sheep originally appeared on Joystiq on Mon, 12 Mar 2012 23:59:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

PSN has a fever, and the only prescription is… well, lots of liquids and rest, probably, and definitely not cowbell. Seriously, have you been near someone playing the cowbell while your head is in a vice grip of feverish pain? It’s terrible.

PSN has spring fever, and its only symptoms are offering discounts and special deals on a handful of franchises for the next three weeks. PSN Spring Fever begins tomorrow with the launch of Journey for non-PS Plus members (no discount; just the release) and a sale on the Call of Duty franchise, with Black Ops, Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 2, and Classic full games on sale, and World at War‘s map packs on discount.

Check out this week’s sale below, as provided by the PlayStation Blog, and play Journey. We think you’ll really enjoy it.

A portion of a GameSpot interview with Keiji Inafune…

GS: There’s a “Collaboration” section on your website, but it’s empty right now. What sort of people are you looking to collaborate with?

KI: It’s amazing because we just opened our English website today, so I’m happy you mentioned it. Under Collaboration, it probably said “Coming Soon.” I’m looking to announce big collaborations with people you didn’t imagine before, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be games. Because I’m on my own and away from my past life, I want to do whatever I couldn’t do before in my former responsibilities. So I really want you to stay tuned and we really want to announce big collaborations.

GS: [To translator]: Did I hear him mention Capcom there?

Translator: Yes, he wants to do big collaborations he couldn’t have done when he was at Capcom.

KI: But if we came up with a collaboration with Capcom, that would surprise you as well, right? It’s not on my list right now, but it could happen.

GS: What are your thoughts on the Wii U so far?

KI: I can’t comment too much about it because I haven’t touched it yet, but whenever Nintendo comes out with something new, it’s always good. So I’m confident it must be impressive. If I get a chance, I always want to try out creating for a new platform. So I’m looking forward to that chance. The same thing could go for the Wii U because it’s part of the challenge in evolution, and it’s a challenge in motion control. It’s in that testing stage, so I’m really interested.

Here’s about the limit of our knowledge regarding GREE: it’s 1) a Japanese company that 2) does something with cell phone games and 3) has a ton of money. Beyond that, details get a little fuzzy.

So I asked Eros Resmini, SVP of Marketing and Developer Relations at GREE’s new American branch, what exactly the company is, and what it does. Basically, it’s an expanded take on OpenFeint’s existing social platform, plus a new game development studio.
