Binary Domain gameplay trailer signifies that the machine age has begun

SEGA announced Binary Domain a while back; an I, Robot-esque third person shooter in which robots have evolved to the point of taking over humanity. The initial reveal trailer didn’t impress many with its ridiculous dialogue but nonetheless we remain interested. After all, can something from the creator of the Yakuza series be all that bad?

Today, SEGA released the first gameplay trailer for Binary Domain and already it’s looking more impressive than before. It looks as if the machine age has begun…

Twisted Metal – if it ain’t broke don’t fix it

You know the characters: Sweet Tooth, Axel, Mr. Grimm, etc. They’re all coming back exclusively to PS3 owners this October in the appropriately titled Twisted Metal.

‘Broken’ is a perfect way to characterize the game’s collection of sociopaths, of which the latest trailer is absolute proof.

New Catherine images show more of the same

Atlus has released five new screenshots of the upcoming exotic relationship-driven Catherine. There is nothing particularly risqué about said images (except for maybe the last image), and they don’t provide any more insight into the game than what we already know from the trailers, which frankly isn’t much.

We do get to see more profile shots of our protagonist, Vincent, as well as our femme fatale, Catherine and what appears to be her everyday counterpart Katherine.

It has been days since any of us have been able to log into the PlayStation Network. Try and you’ll be the recipient of the now infamous PSN Error Message 80710A06.

Online matches, downloads, chat, etc. have all been put on extended hiatus due to ‘an external intrusion’. So exactly is Sony doing to fix the problem?

L.A. Noire – Rising through the ranks

The fact of the matter is that there isn’t much more for us to say about L.A. Noire before we actually get to play L.A. Noire. Its relevance and cross-industry potential has been well documented.

In any event Rockstar has released a brand new trailer that gives greater clarity to one Mr. Cole Phelp’s rise through the ranks of the LAPD so why not have a look?

European PS Store Update for April 20 – What’s happenin’ Fancy Pants?

The very solid slate of special offers from last week will remain throughout this week’s update as well. So if you haven’t done so already check out the rundown of discounted titles because it’s a pretty notable bunch.

But if you say ‘nay’ to such fine discounts perhaps you will find The Fancy Pants Adventures or a full game download of ModNation Racers to your liking. Just promise us you won’t download Battle: Los Angeles. Better yet if you’re thinking about purchasing the movie tie-in how about redirecting your funds to support your favorite charitable PS3 site?

North American PS Store Update for April 19 – Dino Crisis 2 at long last

This week’s offering is somewhat abbreviated. Even the ever-potent slate of downloadable content has pumped the brakes.

There are some fine downloads to be had here but let’s just say that it’s a good thing that Portal 2, Mortal Kombat and SOCOM 4 will keep you busy this week. In any event take a glance at the update, maybe you’ve been waiting for the Prince of Persia trilogy bundle.
