The astronomically successful Call of Duty franchise outdid itself once again with the release of Modern Warfare 3, posting day-one sales figures eclipsing any and all entertainment releases that came before it.
When PS3 Attitude first played The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, we were blown away by its utterly immersive world and practically infinite amount of content.
Therefore, ever since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was announced in December, we’ve been counting down the days until we could play it, and now that day is finally here.
Created by Netherlands-based developer Two Tribes B.V., the puzzle platform game Toki Tori was originally released way back in 2001 for the Game Boy Color. Since then, the title has been through many graphical upgrades and appeared on a huge number of different formats, and next week, over ten years after the game’s initial release, PlayStation Network users can finally give it a play it too!
Moon Knight has been revealed as the third character table for the upcoming Marvel Pinball: Vengence and Virtue DLC, announced Zen Studios.
He joins the likes of Ghost Rider and the X-Men, and while he may not be as well known as them, he definitely the same pinball madness Marvel Pinball is known for.
Square Enix has reveled what will be included in the North American Collector’s Edition of Final Fantasy XIII-2, as well as announced retailer specific pre-order bonuses.
This week the PAL territories are granted access to the all-encompassing Call of Duty ELITE and recently reviewed Hydrophobia Prophecy among other downloads.
It’s safe to say our editor-in-chief DolphGB had one of those “really, honest, am I really doing this?” moments when he signed up for the UK’s toughest 10k obstacle course race. After all, he hadn’t willingly performed any exercise in over a decade, unless you count him twitching his thumbs on a DualShock pad.
The Game of Thrones franchise has taken off in recent years, mainly in part because of HBO’s television adaptation of the popular George R. R. Martin series of novels. The franchise will now expand even further with Atlus set to develop an action RPG set in the fictional world of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.
In conjunction with the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, online players looking for an edge can today register for a Call of Duty ELITE account.
Outside of that, highlights include a digital download of Dead Space 2 and a few good demos to try out.
Just in case you somehow missed our constant broadcasting, our editor-in-chief DolphGB is tackling the UK’s toughest 10k obstacle course, despite being inactive for several years. His run is this Saturday and we’re trying to raise as much money as possible for PS3 Attitude’s chosen charity, GamesAid.
We mention GamesAid regularly, but it’s been a while since we last explained what GamesAid does and why the charity deserves your money.
Spanish development studio Enigma Software Productions’ Alien Spidy has been picked by for digital distribution by Kalypso Media.
The platform adventure game is scheduled for release in 2012, but we have an early look at some screenshots that give us a glimpse of our spider protagonist and the vibrant world it lives in, as well as the dangers you’ll face.
Jonah Hill of Superbad fame and Sam Worthington from Avatar have lent their collective acting and urban warfare talents to help spread the word that “there’s a soldier in all of us”.
Very few games have polarised players quite as much as third-person action/adventure Hydrophobia. Upon its original release in September 2010, Hydrophobia received an exceptionally mixed reception from both critics and gamers alike, with some players praising the title’s huge ambition, and others slating the mediocre voice-acting and clunky controls.
However, rather than move onto something new, Dark Energy Digital did something not many other developers do, and listened to the feedback, whether good or bad. Last week’s PlayStation Store update saw the release of Hydrophobia: Prophecy, a heavily reworked version of the original game, with new sections, numerous changes to the story, and PlayStation Move support.
So, was Dark Energy correct to not give up on Hydrophobia, or was all their effort in vain?
Remember that Hitman Absolution gameplay trailer we showed you recently, the one that had Agent 47 take out an army of cops as he ran for his life? Well, here is the trailer again, but this time complete with developer commentary.
A new 18+ games convention is to be held at London’s Rocket Complex next month on 3-4 December.
London Gaming Con, the sister event of London Anime Con, is looking to bring together the capital’s game-loving community for a night of games, culture and music.
In a period that has seen the launch of Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3 and Uncharted 3, it would be easy to miss out on Zoë Mode’s all signing and dancing Grease game.
As we feel for the little guys, we think it’s our duty to let you know about this game’s existence – and to tell you that it launched yesterday, complete with Move support and silly dance moves.
A remake of Two Tribes’ popular puzzle platformer, Toki Tori, will be winging its way on to the European PlayStation Store from 16 November.
For a while now, MonkeyPaw Games have been busy bringing Japanese PSone titles to the North American PlayStation Store. Last month, the company brought their import service to the European Store, beginning with the release of a trio of old-school arcade-style shooters: Cho Aniki, Shienryu, and Sonic Wings Special.
Be it real or fake, a blurry photo claimed by the provider to be none other than the map of Grand Theft Auto V surfaced earlier today.
