Describing Critter Crunch might actually be harder than simply showing Critter Crunch but, either way, we lead with the following health warning: If the sight of frumpy creatures vomiting rainbows into one another’s mouths may cause you to rediscover your breakfast – you might want to sit this one out.
Flippers at the ready people (and we’re not talking about the ones that go on your feet) as a demo for Zen Pinball, the PSN’s first pinball game from ZEN Studios, is due to hit this Thursday.
As we mentioned this week, the full game comes with four tables full of ramps, gates, buzzers and all the other thrills and spills that make pinball games so addictive. The demo will allow players to sample one of these tables in a quest for flipper-glory and high scores that usually rank up in the millions.
The sequel to one of Sony’s main titles for the launch of the PS3 hasn’t had a lot of press since release, which is an odd thing considering it’s not a bad game.
Well today we have some news on the game to talk about with you. The game has got its second major patch.
A big favourite on the PlayStation Network is the game PAIN, and since it’s launch we have seen new maps and characters introduced including David Hasslehoff.
PAIN first released back in November 29th 2007 in North America and the 20th of March last year for Europe. But now it’s going to see a release onto Blu-ray.
Considering there was a thinly veiled announcement in Edge Magazine last month and some of the more conspicuous of non-denials we’ve ever heard, the news that Thief 4 (or Thi4f) exists should come as a surprise to anyone.
Starting today, and repeating every Tuesday, PS3 Attitude is becoming PSFree Attitude.
Yes, we’ll be giving away all sorts of freebies to our loyal Twitter followers every week with prizes ranging from PSN codes for new games and DLC to physical swag that we have here at Attitude Towers.
We told you it was a good time to be following us on Twitter, didn’t we?
Social Distortion gets the track pack honor this week with three tracks including Story of My Life. Disturbed return to Rock Band with two more tracks: Stricken and Stupify. The latter is from their debut album The Sickness.
Steely Dan (no relation), Elvis Costello and The Replacements are also coming to a Rock Band store near you.
Go into the Codemasters Racing Studio for a first look of Colin McRae: DiRT 2. With DiRT already in the name, what happens when new water technology comes into play? Mud, beautiful HD mud.
We knew it was coming, we just didn’t know it was going to look this good. Or get so much mud on our windshields. But we don’t care really; not when it looks this good.
And by ‘Feral Senses,’ we mean iPhone. Download the Wolverine app from the store and then snap a photo of specific icons to unlock images, wallpapers, trailers, and more directly to your iPhone. There are a total of five different icons to find and use the new photo recognition technology on, the first of which is on the back of the PS3 version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, billed as “the complete antitheses of the on-rails, run-and gun action shooter” will now see an autumn 2009 release.
Rest assured, the extra development time will be put to good use.
We have a double helping of Killzone 2 news for you today. The second piece of news comes in the form of an announcement for another patch due for release later this month, taking the game to v1.27.
We wish Guerrilla Games could give us some more details but it is nice to hear it’s coming.
If you have been here a few times before, you’ll probably notice that we like talking about PlayStation Home and are big fans of Killzone 2. In fact, we have more Home and Killzone articles than for anything else.
Today we can give you news on both of these after a new tweet from @KillzoneDotCom got our attention.
Katamari Forever, aka Katamari Damacy Tribute to some, will be getting more than just a simple 1080p visual overhaul and new cell-shaded graphics. Oh no, it’s much more than that. This PSN exclusive from Namco Bandai will be receive a new game mode as well.
Some new screens of Black Rock Studio’s upcoming potential Burnout-beater Split/Second have whisked their way across our desks and, never ones to keep awesome new screens of games to ourselves, we’ve captured them here for your ocular dissection.
It might fly by and show very little of actual gameplay, but the new Modern Warfare 2 footage does offer up some goodies in terms of what we can expect from Infinity Ward’s next FPS smash hit.
GT5’s Yamauichi-san talks all things Turismo to German car manufacturer, Audi. What can we expect from the full version of the game? Well, if you like rain, driving at night and crash damage, this might be the GT for you.
News is hitting that Digital Extremes will single-handedly create the online element of BioShock 2 allowing 2K Marin to focus on what they know best. At the same time, we also get what is shaping up to be a stellar early glimpse of the BioShock universe from an unlikely source.
PS3 Attitude on TwitterThis week in Twitter, we spent time discussing which netbook to buy, what cereal to eat, what constitutes an ‘exclusive’ and why Gmail is suggesting burlesque poledancing lessons in Newcastle.
We also spend a little time teasing our Twitter follows about some cool stuff we have planned for the weeks ahead, and we were recommended by several members of the Twitterati (including the nice people at @SonyPlayStation).
The Game With No Name (which you can still have a say in by the way – the competition ends on May 11th) has featured yet again over on the official PlayStation blog with PS3 Attitude FridayFollower (thanks again) Jeff Rubenstein speaking with 1-4 Producer Matt Morton about the upcoming spelunking themed PSN exclusive.
