Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment have released a bio and artwork for Harvey Dent AKA Two-Face. The acid-scarred criminal is set to appear in Batman: Arkham City, and we can’t wait to take him on. We consider Two-Face to be one of Bob Kane’s most interesting creations. This is why:
At this point in the year unveiling formerly private E3 demos seems to be the thing to do. Big name titles like BioShock Infinite and RAGE have already displayed long-form gameplay cuts.
Now it’s Metro: Last Light’s turn.
One of the definite highlights of this year’s E3 was the rebirth of the Tomb Raider franchise. Crystal Dynamics’s unveiling of a younger, greener Lara Croft is easily one of the most visually pleasing trailers the industry has ever seen.
So how is it that a trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution integral in making this breathtaking trailer possible?
If you haven’t been paying close attention, id Software’s RAGE is fast approaching release. We’ll be descending into the post-apocalyptic wasteland this October (4th US/7th UK).
In perfect lockstep with the prototypical elements of the genre which id itself spawned in the early 90’s, RAGE will include a devastating array of weapons to arm yourself with. The development team would like to introduce you to the selection of tools at your disposal.
If you’ve ever had the distinct pleasure of attending a garage sale you know what it’s like to come upon a set of goods that isn’t particularly alluring. No TVs or sword collections to draw you in but the possibility of finding something to your liking always exists. That’s pretty much what we have in this week’s update.
Not much by way of new content but still worth checking out.
Here at PS3 Attitude, we’re all about raising money for charity. So far we’ve been able to raise money through advertising, affiliate sales and our donation cloud down below. Now it’s time to kick things into high gear and take it to the next level.
DolphGB, the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of PS3 Attitude, has solved impossible murder mysteries, gone toe-to-toe with the Helghast army and even killed a god, but soon he will face his most difficult challenge yet; Men’s Health Magazine’s ‘Survival of the Fittest’. Best of all, he’s doing it to raise money for GamesAid.
No new games this week people. Disappointing as that is there is a really nice Summer Sale currently running to draw your attention. So if you haven’t downloaded PixelJunk Shooter 2 or PacMan Championship Edition DX this is the time.
In the Batman universe The Riddler has always (with the exception of the Hush series) been somewhat of a punching bag. A swollen bag of hot air, consistently talking a big game only to fall well short of fulfilling his grandiose diatribes.
In Batman: Arkham City, Rocksteady’s anticipated sequel, however Edward Nigma will be taking on a darker, more sinister role.
We’ve seen the likes of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman battle against the forces of evil in Sony Online Entertainment’s DC Universe Online. Now you can add Hal Jordan aka the Green Lantern to the list.
PES has a decent level of support, and last year’s showing was actually pretty good, but for most football fans, hardcore or casual, there’s only one football series for them.
FIFA’s success is partly down to shallow reasons: it has a huge marketing budget, high production values, 500 plus officially licenced clubs and 15,000 plus players. But underneath the Wayne Rooney adverts and Sky Sports presentation lies great gameplay, gameplay that claws you back every time for one more match.
When you play Battlefield 3 later this year, admire the soldiers’ realistic movements, and then acknowledge the FIFA development team for helping DICE to implement this superb animation technology. However, whatever you do, don’t suggest that EA Sports designed the animations for Battlefield 3.
We speak to FIFA producer David Rutter, and discuss the notion of games as a service.
We learn about the new services coming to FIFA 12, including EA Sports Fooball Club and Support Your Club, and consider the possibility that this new focus on services will lead to a change in the FIFA business model, with it possibly moving away from yearly iterations to an ongoing live service model.
At a recent press event, David Rutter, producer of FIFA, took a pack of journalists through some of the improvements and changes his team at EA Sports are making for FIFA 12’s career mode. This is what we discovered.
EA Sports is calling FIFA 12 a revolution, not an evolution, due to the number of changes being implemented this year. It’s not your standard yearly FIFA iteration, that’s for sure.
At the top of the list are several gameplay innovations – including a new Player Impact Engine, Tactical Defending and Precision Dribbling – and each of them add a new dimension to the gameplay, changing completely how we experience FIFA.
Fifa 12 screenshots. The latest batch of screenshots from EA Sports shows gameplay, updated UI and a deeper career mode. Read on to find the full gallery of screenshots.
Here at PS3 Attitude we love the FIFA series. Each season the folks at EA Canada masterfully portray the poetry characteristic of ‘the beautiful game’.
The thing about poetry however is that sometimes it’s all sunshine and lollipops and sometimes it can be a hearty stew of misery. Without further ado, here are the best goals and worst misses of the season as chosen by the FIFA gaming community.
As the medium of video games evolves, story elements and player motivation carry an ever-increasing amount of weight in the overall gameplay experience.
Take a look at what Eidos Montreal has in store for their much anticipated prequel, Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
