MonkeyPawGames is giving the PSN some love with two more PSone Classics from Japan.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Microbot is an upcoming downloadable arcade shooter that takes place inside the human body.
Gamers will take control of a microscopic ship and travel inside a person to fight against infection, diseases, and other biological viruses that plague humanity. You’ll travel through veins, bones, and vital organs as you dispose of these predators.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We’ve been hearing for a long time that a fully integrated Netflix streaming app would be coming to the PlayStation 3 this October, but until now, we never had a solid date to nail down. Well break out your hammer, because the date has been announced and is arriving very soon.
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.
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?
A couple of months ago we reported on the upcoming single player add-on pack for Red Dead Redemption, entitled Undead Nightmare. Back then, little was known, but Rockstar have just released a new trailer that reveals a bit more of the story.
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.
eastasiasoft has just announced that The Last Chapter expansion pack for Söldner-X 2 is coming to the PSN this November.
