Assault Horizon is the latest addition to the storied Ace Combat series. Developer, Project Aces has made a concerted effort to break away from the increasingly stale gameplay principles that relegated previous games to practical irrelevancy.
With the future of the franchise likely tied to the success of the game, its make or break time.
Ghost Rider has invaded the New York Comic-Con as Zen Studios has released the latest trailer for Marvel Pinball: Vengeance and Virture Ghost Rider.
The trailer features everything we’ve come to expect from a Marvel Pinball table; awesome character animations, challenging obstacles and missions, and high scoring pinball action.
This week’s update on the European store is practically in lock-step with yesterday’s North American update (not good).
Highlights this week include Sideway: New York, a Call of Duty themed sale and hope for next week.
Last year, PS3 Attitude brought you Pure Platinum, our guide to the best classic games on the PlayStation 3. In the PAL region, if a game sells at least 400,000 copies, then it qualifies for Sony’s Platinum range, giving it a swanky new case and, more importantly, a big price cut.
Since our first Pure Platinum feature, many more AAA games have joined the range, so, with December just around the corner, we thought it was about time we updated the list, in the hope of helping new PS3 owners sort out their Christmas lists.
Not a good week for NA PS3 owners and unfortunately such things are typically a harbinger of things to come on the European side. If this week’s update had a face you’d have to pay a carny good money to see it.
Nevertheless let’s take a look shall we?
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is “a cinematic platform adventure game where you take on the role of a badass chicken who sets out to destroy an evil totalitarian penguin regime.” That, at least, is a summary of the game from its developer Ratloop Asia.
Do you find your Call of Duty experience lacking a certain punch? Do you yawn during firefights and nod off while the building you’re in explodes around you?
Activision’s got the answer, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. A yet even purer action experience for those of us that need a little something extra get their fix these days.
There is a point in Rage when it stops being a solid FPS and becomes a great one. That moment occurs about two or three hours in, just when our recent hands-on preview ended.
Up to that point, we had been ushered down narrow paths and asked to do routine objectives. It was a confident and accomplished introduction to the game, and it did give us a good grounding for what was to come later, but it felt like it was keeping a tight rein on us.
It’s quite in vogue to wax nostalgic about the days of the Dreamcast, and why not, Sega’s last console gave the public some excellent games even if most of us never owned a Dreamcast. This week the PSN adds two popular Dreamcast titles to its library with Sega Bass Fishing and Space Channel 5 Part 2. One for anglers and one for fans of the obscure.
Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the debuts of NBA Jam On Fire Edition, Crysis Console & Eufloria. Time to check it out.
EA has released a batch of new screens from the single-player campaign of Battlefield 3, and they really showcase the capabilities of the Frostbite 2 engine.
Be sure to click through the images at full screen to see them in all their glory.
Portal 2 was finally released six months ago, and quickly became one of the most critically acclaimed games of this generation. However, if you’re still yet to play it then there has never been a better time, because earlier this week saw the release of Peer Review, the game’s first proper add-on. If you ask us it could well be a contender for the best piece of downloadable content ever; read on to find out why…
Last week SEGA teased games with images containing Japanese text in red, and now we know exactly the meaning of them. SEGA has annouced that Yakuza: Dead Souls will be coming to North America and Europe in March 2012, exclusively on the PS3.
When it comes to getting classic Japanese PS one titles on the PlayStation Store, no one does it better than MonkeyPaw Games. Up until now, these releases have been confined to the US Store. Not anymore.
MonkeyPaw Games announced today the launch of the new PS one Import Section on the European PS Store. The first three titles to grace the new store are Arc the Lad, Cho Aniki and Sonic Wings Special.
RAGE has arrived PS3 fans and we’ve got the trailer to prove it.
What is the Darkness exactly? Where did it come from and what does it want?
This paranoid tweaker is about to drop some serious knowledge.
Rage, the first major project id Software has undertaken since 2004’s Doom 3, is out very soon, and PS3 Attitude has been getting hands-on with it.
At a glance, you would be entitled to think that Supremacy MMA’s main “attraction” is its grimy underground environments, ugly menacing fighters and bone-crunching violence; it is a hardcore game for those who think EA’s MMA and UFC Undisputed are too soft. However, once you strip away all of the gruesomeness and awful metal music, you find something deeper and even quite thoughtful underneath.
A bevy of Hollywood stars have been announced for the cast of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
With their fantasy epic closing in on its November 11th release date, Bethesda Softworks have disclosed the ensemble voice-over cast lending their tongues to the project.
Find out who they are and where you know them from.

We’ve already established that Resistance 3 has a superb singleplayer campaign, but, once it’s over, realistically you’ll be spending most of your time with the game’s multiplayer modes. Since the first game’s release in 2006, the Resistance series has been at the forefront of online multiplayer experiences on PlayStation 3, so how does Resistance 3 compare?
