To celebrate the release of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Namco Bandai and Ninja Theory have released a new trailer, which as well as showing off the game’s incredible graphics, also introduces its epic combat, class-leading facial animations and excellent voice acting.
Two great PSone Classics get priced and dated.
Hunted: The Demon’s Forge is a modern co-op cover action game that looks to revive the memories of old dungeon crawlers, such as Wizardry and Bard’s Tale. Dungeon crawlers were massive in the 80s and 90s but it’s rare to see them these days.
When the guys at InXile were playing and creating these great fantasy games of the past, they always imagined what they would be like with better technology. In a sense, they are living this dream with Hunted.
The list of Sony’s first-party lineup that will be supporting 3D is quite impressive. On the other hand, the number on multiplatform games that will support it is pretty small. The list isn’t necessarily about to grow leaps and bounds but there is one major game that will certainly move to the top.
For those that have long been anticipating the possible announcement of a Killzone 3 beta, this is your lucky week. While only a small amount of people will be able to get in, Guerrilla is making it open to anyone who puts themselves in the right place at the right time.
When will you get nail’d? That depends…
The Precision Shot 3 is a new gun attachment for the PlayStation Move that promises to enhance your gaming experience. Unfortunately, it actually detracts from the experience.
Lucy Porter is back from her holiday in what almost feels like a bumper episode of FirstPlay. For a start, there’s a record amount of reviewed games this week, including the epic Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and equally awesome Enslaved: Odyssey to West, as well as PSN titles Blade Kitten and Flight Control HD.
They’re joined by (believe it or not) even more reviews, screenshot galleries of Killzone 3, MotorStorm: Apocalypse and Portal 2 (WANT!), a round-up of the latest and greatest minis, and a couple of pretty cool themes to brighten up your XMB. Keep it up FirstPlay!
It’s time once again for the European PlayStation Store Update. This update is a tad disappointing when compared to previous iterations but the way we look at, you wouldn’t know what a good update was unless you had a bad one now and then, right?
Calling this a bad update is really the wrong choice of words, anyway. You’ve got Ferrari: The Race Challenge to look forward to, as well as a full one hour trial if you’re a Plus subscriber. Also new for Plus subscribers is Street Fighter HD Remix and the PSone classic, Kula World. If neither of those are blowing your skirt up, you’ve also got two Mini’s to choose from – Aero Racer and Yeti Sports.
Beyond that, there’s not a lot to be had. There is a demo for DJ Hero 2 and several intriguing game add-ons, so hopefully everyone will find something that wins them over. Click the link for the full list and be sure to let us know what you’re getting!
PS3 Attitude got an early look at Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s gameplay at the Eurogamer Expo. The game was getting put through its paces in front of an audience of earnest gamers, and to say that it pleased the crowd would be an understatement.
It’s time again for the North American PlayStation Store Update! This week is a tad lighter than the few before it but that certainly doesn’t mean there’s not some good content to be found here.
If you’re a Plus subscriber, you’ve got a new episode to Qore to look forward do (as do non Plus Qore subscribers) as well as a Mini titled, Bubble Trubble and a couple of themes. Beyond that, the Plus update is only discounts to previous released content, although it is worth noting that one of those discounts is for a game that is just being released – Alien Breed: Impact.
For the rest of us, there are two new games: Deadliest Warrior: The Game and Alien Breed: Impact – both of those titles have a demo.
If none of that interests you, there’s plenty of other demos, videos, add-on content and media, so surely you can find something that will tickle your fancy. Have a look at the list and be sure to let us know what you’re picking up.

Trivia time: What’s better than reading about all the latest gaming news? You guessed it – being able to watch it instead of having to read like a sucker. If you’re the type that prefers moving pictures to words, then today is your day on PS3A. The most recent trailer we have of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is just another example of that.
For those of you that are interested in Vanquish, you might want to come check out this new trailer we have. For those that aren’t, you still might want to come see this… it’s pretty awesome.
Any basketball fans out there? Admittedly, not many of us here at the Attitude Towers are big basketball fans but NBA 2K11 is starting to raise some eyebrows, regardless. The newest trailer titled, “what if?” is only making it harder to look past this game, even for those of us who don’t traditionally frequent the hardwood.
Brink is one of the most exciting and ambitious first-person shooters on the horizon, on any platform. Splash Damage have a track record of making first-rate multi-player FPSs (Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars) and with Brink they’re looking to take the genre further than anyone else.
