Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.; the PS3 Attitude review

It has been some time since the PlayStation 3 was graced with any kind of flight action game.

Now the balance has been redressed with the arrival of a new title in the Tom Clancy franchise.

So does Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X. – which for the purposes of saving our fingers will be simply called HAWX from now on – reach for the sky? Or is it just SAM fodder?

Should Sony steer away from non-gaming features?

Since the PS3 was announced, Sony has continually marketed the console as a multi-media device and not just for gaming.

However the PlayStation brand is so strongly associated with gaming it is not so easy to simply shrug off this image and display a more rounded, entertainment-based persona.

With so many other media options available, should Sony focus only on gaming?

Killzone 2 Q&A with Guerrilla Games

Our latest Killzone 2 fix comes to you in the form of a Q&A from the developers themselves, Guerrilla Games. We had to track them down deep in the jungles of the Amazon region of Colombia; we had full network coverage the whole trip so it was ok. That Amsterdam headquarters is a front to confuse ‘the man’.

We talk about lessons learned from Killzone 1 and Killzone: Liberation, the inspiration behind Killzone 2′s Warzone online mode, and even take a challenge from Guerrilla Games. But what about the elephant in the room (aka the E3 2005 footage)? Did we dare bring it up? We’ll make you find out the hard way…

SOCOM Update 1.41 is HUGE; fixes everything (maybe) in lieu of European launch

The SOCOM server guys have been hard at work reconfiguring the farm with the happy news today (or yesterday, whatever) that, not only have they completely eradicated the rogue region based latency issue, but they’ve also tweaked a whole bunch of other known problems, forging together a new release (1.41 if you’re still counting) that promises to finally make SOCOM be the best it can be.
