Dead Nation trophy list comes with a surprise

Hmm, a suprise within the Dead Nation trophies, eh? What could it be? Perhaps it’s a trophy that shoots fireworks on the screen after you unlock it. Maybe it’s a trophy that turns your PS3 in to a transformer so it can walk around the house and get you soda when you’re thirsty. Or maybe it’s something that you don’t want, like a guaranteed YLOD. Nope, it’s not any of those things, but if you want to find out what it really is, you’ll have to come inside.

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West – The PS3 Attitude Review

A few years removed from developing the cult classic, Heavenly Sword, Ninja Theory has returned with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. On the outside, this is a game that has shown tremendous amounts of promise and had audiences buzzing with pre-launch hype. The question is, will Ninja Theory be able to have the same measure of success now that they’ve ditched Sony as a publisher and started using a universal engine? Read on to find out.

[Update]Blacklight: Tango Down finally has solid release date

Earlier in the summer when Blacklight: Tango Down was nearing its initial release date, we were actually pretty excited to play it. Our excitement was soon replaced with annoyance as it was delayed for an unforeseen amount of time. Now, we have a firm release date again, but based on when it’s coming out and the other games that surround it, we have to question if anyone still cares.

First Fallout: New Vegas DLC not coming to PS3… or is it?

If you remember back to the days when Fallout 3 came out, you probably remember our disappointment when Bethesda announced that all DLC for Fallout 3 would be X-Box 360/PC exclusive. Strange how history has a way of repeating itself.

Latest Mortal Kombat trailer features the origins of Scorpion

Most people already know of the origin story of Scorpion and his beef with rival ninja Sub-Zero. Still, any new footage from the upcoming Mortal Kombat is more than welcomed.

PS3 Attitude’s Top 100 Developers – Part 9

Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and believe us when we say that there are some incredibly talented teams included. We’ve now revealed eighty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing ten more.

F1 2010 – The PS3 Attitude review

With the Formula One season approaching its climax with only three races remaining, we take a look at F1 2010, the motorsport’s return to our consoles after just over three years away.

F1 2010 is the first time Codemasters’ has been in the driving seat for the series, and with racing fans having to wait so long to see their favourite sport back in their control, these guys have a lot of expectations resting on their shoulders.

The Brink Diaries; doing it for the hardcore

Splash Damage have added many features to Brink that will make the game accessible to the softcore player: VOIP is automatically turned off , there are game balancing systems, and even the much talked about SMART (smooth movement across random terrain) button prevents the gamer from getting frustrated.

As good as these are for the novice, they aren’t music to the ears of the seasoned online pro who doesn’t want their hand being held. The hardcore gamer wants friendly fire turned on, and they want to be able to communicate with their team mates, amongst other things.

Namco working on patch to fix Enslaved’s 5:1 surround issues

How’s the sound on your copy of Enslaved? Is it good or is there something missing, maybe the surround? Your answer to this will depend on how you have your console connected to your surround system. It appears that Enslaved doesn’t support 5:1 surround for users who connect their PlayStation 3 to their sound system via an optical cable. Instead the game will only output in stereo. You should be fine if you’re connected with an HDMI cable.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – the PS3 Attitude Review

gamers alike, with Symphony of the Night regularly cited as being the best the series has to offer. Upon its release on PSOne in 1997, Konami stood steadfast against all the trends of the time; unashamedly flying the flag for 2D, while the rest were being seduced by 3D.

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 – The PS3 Attitude Review

The wait is finally over. After 16 years of begging, Sonic has finally gone back to his 2D roots. This might not be the Sonic game that you were hoping for, but it’s easily one of Sonic’s greatest adventures yet. Assuming that you actually give the blue hedgehog a chance.

Disc-less Netflix streaming coming to PS3 next week (US)

European PS Store Update for 13 October – A day late

To clarify, by a day late we mean us and not the actual update. Oh my, think of the craziness that would be taking place on the official EU blog if the update really were a day late. We shudder just thinking about it

Anyway, the update is here and with it is lots of cool stuff. If you’re lucky enough to be a PlayStation Plus member, you have the full game trial of Hustle Kings to look forward to, as well as three different Fallout 3 expansions. Also available is the Killzone 3 beta theme, and although the beta is already locked up as far as participants go, the theme is still in the Store if you’re interested.

Following in North America’s footsteps, you can also find Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1 for download, as well as Dead Space Ignition. Speaking of Sonic 4, you have the official PS3 Attitude review to look forward to in the near the future.

Beyond that, there are several new demos and a lot of game add-ons, videos, themes and avatars available. So check out the complete list and let us know what can be found in your download queue this week.

Sonic Adventure – The PS3 Attitude Review

Originally released as a launch title for the SEGA Dreamcast, Sonic Adventure blew people away with its awesomness in 1999. To many, it’s still the greatest 3D Sonic game ever made. Now that the game is available on the PlayStation Network, we get to revisit an important piece of gaming history.

By now, you most likely have read that this game is absolutely horrible. Is this really the case? Has Sonic Adventure aged so badly that it’s nearly unplayable?

FirstPlay Thusday – Week 28

On the frontline of this week’s episode (do you see what we did there?) is a review of the modern reboot of the classic Medal of Honor series. Other reviews include the muddy racer WRC: FIA World Rally Championship and the cute PSN title Swords and Soldiers (along with a European-exclusive demo of the game).

Elsewhere there are previews of the imaginatively titled (not) EA Sports MMA, and the awesome-looking multiplayer of Call of Duty: Black Ops. You’ll also find a cool video of Skate 3, and screenshot galleries including Batman: Arkham City and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One.
