Trine is an unique game heading to the PSN later this year. With innovative physics-based gameplay, an intriguing story and melancholy soundtrack, there is a justified amount of interest in the game from many corners of the gaming world.

We’re at E3 and Kudo Tsunoda is showing ‘real-time’ footage of what the PS3 is capable of doing for his Fight Night franchise. Of course, what is shown at E3 didn’t transpire when Fight Night Round 3 arrived on our beloved black monolith, raising questions of whether it was real-time after all.

We hope you had enough of FIFA 09, because FIFA 10 is just around the corner. EA is churning out this year’s update to the football (not to be confused with gridiron football) franchise like only they can.
FIFA 10 aims to “deliver a new standard for authenticity with gameplay refinements and innovations that will make it the most complete and intelligent simulation of football”. We may have heard the same about FIFA 09 last year; apparently standards for authenticity and innovation get yearly updates as well.

We’ve spent a little time on the island recently here at Attitude Towers and whilst we hadn’t noticed anything in particular (since we spend most of our time driving everywhere at full speed), we’re certainly liking the new space.
Now that Criterion have told us there’s more to Big Surf than meets the eye, we might have to slow down.

Red Faction: GuerrillaIt’s the catchphrase that just won’t go away. This time though, with a slight tweak of poetic licence of course, it’s actually relevant.
With buoyant sales and near-universal acclaim, it’s a no-brainer that THQ should keep riding the Martian success wave and release more content for Red Faction: Guerrilla. And come August 13th, that’s exactly what they plan to do.
