This week update is centered around the digital release of The Sly Collection Bundle and de Blob 2. Other highlights include a 33% price break on inFamous 2 and Rock Band’s blind ambition to bombard us all with yet more song downloads we don’t care about.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations is the third title in the action/adventure series to be released in as many years, and the fourth overall on home consoles. You’d think gamers would have had enough of the franchise by now, but Ubisoft has managed to beat the odds once with Brotherhood, which was released last year to universal acclaim, so can they do it again with Revelations?
Say goodbye to flying mammoths and pacifist dragons (possibly).

I have been contacted by the Dark Brotherhood.
False starts: the nitrous, coast-to-coast racer, Need for Speed: The Run has had a few. The first one happened at its unveiling at E3, when the debut trailer worryingly focused on the game’s, erm, innovative QTE-led cutscenes. The trailer, unsurprisingly, was met with a mixture of confusion and bafflement.
It’s been rumoured for a few months now, but this week Naughty Dog and Sony finally announced the Jak and Daxter Collection for PS3, an HD remake of the original trilogy on PS2.
In other news, Ubisoft has revealed that Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc will also be getting an HD release next year on the PlayStation Network.
Rockstar Games has announced the Max Payne Special Edition that includes the game, still life art prints, bullet keychain, soundtrack, DLC, and collectible statue, all for around $100.
Available for pre-order from now until January 15th from select retailers, the Max Payne 3 Special Edition joins the long list of games that have upgraded themselves to more expensive, more content packed collector’s editions. Question is, is it all worth the extra money?
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been out for a little over a week now, so Nixemus and I thought it was about time we gave you another update on our progress. It’s been eventful, to say the least.
When it comes to the video game industry, the Call of Duty franchise reigns supreme, specifically the Modern Warfare series. How many other games can say they’ve sold millions of copies in a single day or had the biggest launch in entertainment history? Yeah, not many.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 continues to hunt for Russian Ultranationalist Vladimir Makarov in its main single-player campaign and further enhances its already top-notch multiplayer experience. Has the gameplay changed enough over the last iteration, or does the old “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” saying still ring true?
London Gaming Con is a new community focused gaming event from the people behind London Anime Com, which is taking place at London’s Rocket Complex early next month.

London Gaming Con is fast approaching but you can still take advantage of reduced pre-pay tickets of just £8 for Saturday and £6 for Sunday. These tickets are available from the official website: www.londongamingcon.com/register.php
The road I’ve traveled to go from a completely inactive gamer to a 10k adventure race runner has been seemingly long, but just over one week ago it all came to a head as I …
The original PlayStation fighting game Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors is headed to the PSN, announced Capcom today.
It’s been years since a proper Dalkstalkers release but Capcom has always made sure the franchise is never forgotten with its characters routinely making guest appearances in fighting games. Most recently, Morrigan, Felicia, and Hsien-ko all appeared in both versions of Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Now, fans will have the opportunity to go back and play the game that started it all.
Sony has announced that PSN maintenance is scheduled for tomorrow, meaning that PS3 users will be unable to sign in or play online for the majority of the day.
It seems like every week MonkeyPaw Games is bringing a quirky Japanese wonder to the West. So far we have received straightforward ports of Japanese PSOne games — with language barriers and kids on magic hoovers intact — but the company stepped up to a new level this week with the release of BurgerTime World Tour, a complete reinvention of the 1982 meat-themed arcade game.
Licensing problems. Throughout the nineties, we complained when Japanese titles never made it to stores near us despite taking the Fear East by storm. It got a bit better in the noughties, as our hobby grew in popularity, but the issue never completely disappeared.
Dungeon Siege III was released to lukewarm reviews in June but the game is still going strong with fans of the dungeon crawling genre. For those of you who like to complete every quest and find every item, the Treasures of the Sun DLC opens an entirely new environment to explore; the Aranoi Desert. With it come an increased level cap, new abilities, and a new enchanting system.
Is this enough to once again venture into the deep dark caverns of the game, or has this Legion finally met his match?
American football is a sport teeming with inspirational quotes made by the equally inspirational men leading their squads on the field.
UCLA Bruins coach Henry “Red” Sanders famously said “Winning isn’t everything. It’s the only thing” and legendary Alabama Crimson Tide general Paul “Bear” Bryant declared “There’s no substitute for guts”.
This past weekend University of Louisville front man Charlie Strong weaved his own noteworthy words into the history books following the Cardinals’ loss on Saturday.
BurgerTime World Tour — a remake of the quirky, 1982, Japanese arcade title BurgerTime — is making its way to PSN. PS3 Attitude has been speaking to John Greiner, president and CEO of MonkeyPaw Games, to find out what kind of relish we can expect for this upcoming retro remake.
With the release of Assassin’s Creed Revelations mere days away, the development team at Ubisoft figured we could all use a proper refresher on the narrative as we head into the series’ fourth game.
