We feel quite close to Noby Noby Boy here at PS3 Attitude. Catching our first glance of what Takahashi-san had up his creative sleeve back in October 2007, we’ve been intrigued ever since.

Just in case you forgot about all the giant blockbuster titles that Sony has in store for us this year, they’ve sent out a reminder. According to a press release sent out by SCEA:
“Kicking off the new line up, KillzoneÂ®2 is set to launch on February 27, 2009 and promises to be the industryâ€™s first major gaming hit for 2009 as well as a key driver for PlayStationÂ®3 (PS3â„¢) hardware sales. Killzone 2 is the third installment of the popular PlayStation-exclusive franchise, and the first of the series to appear on PS3. Delivering a truly immersive experience only possible through PS3â€™s Blu-ray gaming potential, Killzone 2 is already generating wide-spread critical acclaim, earning an impressive Metacritic score of 92.”

Zuma is another game that we could recommend, at least the demo. We know of a certain PS3A Staff Writer that sneaks a round or two with the PC version. Speaking of demos, the foul mouthed Afro Samurai has a demo for you (I wonder if it was toned down for the demo). The legends are in Paradise; go get your favorite one or all four (you know you want to). Your Guitar Rock Hero Band DLC is here despite someone forgetting to tell you it was coming (sorry). Get yours while they last, full details after the break.
