European PS Store update for January 19th – That’s more like it!

All in all, we’ve got a much more appealing update to look forward to today, with the releases of Spare Parts, Modern Combat: Domination, Costume Quest on Ice, and a massive seven minis.

There’s also lots to get excited about in terms of DLC, including a batch of Mass Effect 2 add-ons, the second free update for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and (yes, Vicheous!) new content for R.U.S.E..

That leaves the usual episode of FirstPlay, some dynamic themes, and a few videos (including Crysis 2 and Dead Space 2), so there should hopefully be something for everyone.

Anyway, what will you be downloading today?

Following today’s announcement of Final Fantasy XIII-2, the question we kept hearing was: “What about Final Fantasy Versus XIII?” They had a point. Despite being announced in 2006, Square Enix has been very quiet about this game, and the news of another Final Fantasy XIII variation has made many people concerned over the health of the Versus XIII project.

Going retro in the LittleBigPlanet 2 arcade trailer

All the time developers are finding new ways to push the boundaries of their platform so they can create more impressive graphics and gaming moments. The public wants it – they cannot wait to see the flame, fire and sand effects in Uncharted 3. Nevertheless, despite this constant anticipation for the next best thing, there has always been a place for retro gaming.

It could be because retro games are easy to grasp: the concepts are often so pure your granny could learn them. Or maybe it is because they do not demands hours of your time, unlike the majority of modern games. Either way, retro gaming is soon to find a new home – in LittleBigPlanet 2.

Setting records with LittleBigPlanet 2

Every year the crack staff over at Guinness World Records updates the world on the esteemed accomplishments of humanity, and perhaps this will be the year that the creepy guy with long fingernails is surpassed by an equally creepy guy or gal with slightly longer fingernails.

The powers that be have also recently seen fit to expand their gaze to incorporate the feats of gamers. The ‘Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition’ chronicles everything from “best selling racing game” to “longest videogame marathon” (Mario Kart Wii and 50 hours of Red Dead Redemption respectively, in case you were wondering).

What records do SCEA and Guinness have in mind for LittleBigPlanet 2?

Gameloft to release Modern Combat: Domination

Gameloft to release Modern Combat: Domination

Addias. Nikre. Boreos. Knock-offs are a part of consumer based society. Company A creates a wonderfully successful product. Then another company, let’s just call them Company B (bet you didn’t see that coming) mimics said product virtually eliminating a large chunk of their development costs.

Of course this trend does not limit itself to expensive shoes and chocolate cookies. With the video games industry more viable than ever it is no surprise that more and more companies are throwing their hats into the ring to try to get a piece of the pie. Double metaphors aside, it is not surprising to see something like a Call To Duty or Need To Speed on store shelves. However, is it possible for a company to make a product that is too similar to its competitor’s?

FirstPlay Thursday – Week 40

For some reason FirstPlay have reviewed some of the most disappointing games of last year, with verdicts on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, and Tony Hawk: Shred. Thankfully, much more satisfactory are the PSN reviews of Funky Lab Rat and Pac-Man Championship Edition DX.

There’s also footage of the first hour of Dead Space 2, a guide to tuning in Gran Turismo 5, an online review of Call of Duty: Black Ops, an introduction to MUBI, and screenshot galleries of Dungeon Siege III and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
