BlazBlue’s new character will beat you down with her cuteness.
In this week’s episode of FirstPlay there are reviews of Buzz!: The Ultimate Music Quiz, Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, and Red Dead Redemption’s Undead Nightmare pack, as well as an online review of Medal of Honor.
There’s also a ‘making of’ feature for James Bond: Blood Stone, an interview with Atari’s executive producer Vince Farquharson, and screenshot galleries of Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, Dead Space 2, Shift 2: Unleashed, and Tokyo Jungle.
After a long and grueling month of reading through comment after comment, we’ve finally come to a decision and are ready to reveal the winners for the Platinum Community Member Contest for the month of November. We had a record breaking nine games to give away as part of this contest, so why not see if you’re one of the lucky talented readers that won?
A game as deliciously messy and silly as Bulletstorm is shouldn’t be played alone, and we’re glad developer People Can Fly agrees. The studio is adding co-op multiplayer to Bulletstorm so you can “kill with skill” with your friends.
EA announced a release date for the Dead Space 2 demo. It’s coming just in time for the holidays.
Rage. Vengeance. Fatality.
Welcome to die, Konami?
We’re a little late with today’s European Store update, as it actually updated this morning. Don’t get used to it though, it’s just an early Christmas present from SCEE.
This week’s content includes Alien Breed 2: Assault, Kung-Fu LIVE!, and a PSN release of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas 2, as well as the usual DLC, minis, demos, themes and avatars.
PlayStation Plus subscribers also get a few free goodies this week, in the form of some Hustle Kings and Dead Nation avatars, and more importantly, the co-operative PS Move game, Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves (releasing on the Store next week for everyone else).
So, is there anything that Sony can tempt you with today?
Crescent Pale Mist is a crazy fast 2.5D action platformer developed by ClassiC Shikoukairo. As with The Gundemonium Collection, which was Rockin’ Android’s previous PSN offering, Crescent Pale Mist was only available in Japan for the PC.
If you’re looking for one of the most frustrating gaming experiences ever, you’ll definitely want to play this game.
Fallout 3 was one of our favourite games of 2008, and we’ve been looking forward to Fallout: New Vegas for months, but has Obsidian Entertainment created a worthy sequel to Bethesda’s epic post-apocalyptic adventure?
Nurburgring Nordschleife is one of the most famous tracks in the world, and it’s also Kazunori Yamauchi’s favourite track. The car-obsessed creator of Gran Turismo has spent years trying to recreate the Ring in all its glory. Well, a racer in Germany has been putting his creation to the test, so we’re now in a position to ask the question: just how accurate is the virtual Nurburgring?
Who ya gonna call? Atari and Sony Pictures Consumer Products apparently. The two are joining forces to bring gamers everywhere the first ever Ghostbusters digital release title; Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime.
The first thing that you will notice about Venetica – the upcoming fantasy role-playing game from German developer Deck 13 – is its low production values. It looks old, there’s no escaping it, but if you can look past those smudgy textures, you might appreciate its large scale, strong lead character and interesting setting. There is potential here to offer a rich and rewarding experience to the sadly underserved fans of the fantasy genre.
It is Tuesday, and you know what that means, don’t you?
Yes, today and repeating every Tuesday, PS3 Attitude becomes PSFree Attitude.
As usual we’ll be giving away all sorts of freebies to our loyal Twitter followers every week with prizes ranging from PSN codes for new games and DLC to physical swag that we have here at Attitude Towers.
Another month is in the books and in case you missed our November recap, it was a big one. We saw the launch of a couple of goliath games, such as Gran Turismo 5, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. So which of those did we play the most? Come inside to find out.

Yay! echochrome ii finally has a release date and it’s just in time for the holidays.
The Tomb Raider series is getting rebooted by developer Crystal Dynamics. We’re told to forget everything we know about Lara Croft and according to January’s edition of Game Informer, the new game will explore the origins of Lara.
Simply titled Tomb Raider, the game is about a young and inexperienced Lara surviving in the wild.
Team 17′s long running turn-based strategy game is back and it’s packed with new modes, features, and even more weapons. The first Worms title to hit the PSN wasn’t exactly Team 17′s best effort, but it was still a fun game. Thankfully, Worms 2: Armageddon is the improvement everyone was looking for.
Who knew killing worms could be this much fun?
