Shatter – The PS3 Attitude Review

Shatter – The PS3 Attitude Review

E3 was a momentous event that housed tons of gaming big screens, booth babes, and flashy lights and sounds. Tucked away between the two halls of the convention, right next to the Into the Pixel Gallery, was a lone setup. There were no booth babes, no flashy gimmicks, and just one game. The game was Shatter and its developer; Sidhe.

Finally, almost two months later, the game has been released and we were excited to finish what we had started back at E3. You play as BAT1138, a slave to the machine empire, forced to harvest energy for his masters. After a breakdown, he becomes self aware and breaks free from his prison. In order to escape, BAT must successfully traverse the ten levels of the factory and defeat the bosses at the end of each.

We’re got a number of Marvel properties coming to the PS3 this year. Among others, there’s Marvel Super Hero Squad (for the kids), Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 (for Stan Lee fans) and Iron Man 2 (for people convinced the sequel can’t be as bad as the first game) so it’s no surprise to see Marvel promoting their upcoming wares in as many ways as super-humanly possible.

And who better to promote your new game than the lovable Sackboy?

Website features update; the bunny boiler edition

Good day dear readers.

The swanky new login bar we implemented recently just didn’t work out. Once we’d got it home, it started re-arranging all our furniture and brought it’s pet bug collection along with it, so we had to be cruel to be kind and kick it out on the street.

But here’s the good news…

Twitter Weekly Digest for 2009-07-26

Welcome to what will be the last of our Twitter Weekly Digests. Whilst we’re continuing to be as active on Twitter as ever, we’ve decided to stop giving these weekly updates from now on as we hope you’ll have joined us – and all the interesting people we’ve introduced you to – on Twitter by now.

So in this final edition, we discuss game modes with David Jaffe, terrible pun-worthy headlines, the brilliant iTrophies app, our new Fantasy Football league and a real life computer bug.

It Came From Japan #2 – Shin Megami Tensei: Persona

It Came From Japan #2 – Shin Megami Tensei: Persona

A spin-off from the equally popular Shin Megami Tensei (True Goddess Reincarnation), the Persona flavour is especially popular among Japanese youth.

Where Persona fits in this wider RPG mosaic is not necessarily complicated, but it does at least require some explanation.

Persona is in fact a spin-off of a spin-off, and though we could have chosen to focus on just the primary spin-off (Shin Megami Tensei – we do hope you’re keeping up), we decided to highlight Persona purely because it has a better chance of seeing a Western release on the PS3.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed patched; trophies live

The wait is finally over…for North America at least. Today, Capcom has released the patch that brings trophy support to Bionic Commando: Rearmed.

In order to enable trophies though, you’re going to have to manually delete your current save date and create a new one. Tis a small price to pay for the luminous goblets. So just exactly what trophies are there to earn? Let’s take a look…

Comic-Con09; Actual PixelJunk Shooter gameplay video

It might be a little shaky but at least we get an actual look at the gameplay behind PixelJunk’s next – and still stupidly named – entry: Shooter.

Some new aspects that become apparent from watching this footage captured from Comic-Con included how your little “shooter” thing can overheat and cool down by flying into water. We also get to see some fluid dynamics when shooting from under water which is a nice touch but, and this is the best thing yet, you can dock your ship and take on a LAVA CANNON.

Demon’s Souls – new screenshots for the non-importers

Whenever we’ve talked about Demon’s Souls here at PS3 Attitude we’ve been stuck with the same set of tired old screenshots while some of you readers out there have imported the game and witnessed millions of images from the notably onerous RPG.

We’re happy to say that this imbalance has now been rectified however, as the nice people over at Atlus have just sent us a truck-load of new beautiful screenshots from the game. So many in fact that we’ve had to cherry-pick them*.

Comic-Con09: Katamari Forever trailer keeps the weirdness going

Just when you thought Katamari Damacy couldn’t get any weirder. Surprise! Along comes a new English-speaking trailer for Katamari Forever from Comic-Con that has us frantically reaching for the anti-hallucinogens again.

Monkeys, turkeys (sorry, roosters) and the Prince of the Cosmos. It’s nice to see that, even though Keita Takahashi was not involved with this PS3 update to everyone’s favourite trash-ball-rolling game, there’s plenty of other crazy Japanese folk to step in and keep the madness going.

Thanks to the guys over at Joystiq, we’ve got our first glance at some new gameplay features set to entice fans in the latest edition of the consistently stellar platformer series: Ratchet & Clank.

With a sub-title of “A Crack in Time”, it’s no surprise to see the characters in the latest game poking their hands into the space/time continuum and making a few tweaks to their benefit.

First Borderlands gameplay video: “The RPG and FPS made a baby”

Gearbox Software have released the first gameplay trailer of their aesthetically divergent FPS-with-benefits Borderlands.

Through screenshots we’ve already seen how the game follows a different path in terms of visual style, but now we get to gush over just what a Mad Max-esque world painted with strong colours and deep lines actually looks like in motion.
