Batman: Arkham City | Writer’s GOTY

Batman: Arkham City | Writer’s GOTY

Now that I’ve had some time to look back at the year that was 2011 (technically still is in fact), it’s no longer hyperbole to declare it one of the industry’s best since the dawn of Pong. Nearly every highly-anticipated game made good on its potential (except for you, Dragon Age II), making it nearly impossible to widdle this embarrassment of riches down to a solitary game.

If I were to write about my favourite games of 2011, this article would be ten times longer, and no one would ever finish reading it. Therefore, to spare people from slowly losing the will to live, I’ve somehow managed to cut it down to just one amazing title.

North American PS Store Update for December 27 – let’s make this quick

For the final North American PS store update of the year the store is in full accordance with the K.I.S.S. (keep it short and simple) rule.

There isn’t much to be had this week but there are definitely a few gems including Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD (first time on PlayStation) and a trio of Splinter Cell titles.

Have a look won’t you?

Merry Christmas from Attitude Towers

Dear friends of PS3 Attitude,

Do you hear that sound? It’s the sound of PS3 games being unwrapped in houses across the world. People are waking up to Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3 and other things with 3 in the title. Some are even finally joining the club by getting their first PS3.

It’s also the sound of Team Attitude shouting out a loud and cheerful merry Christmas to our many friends out there. You all know who you are and we hope you are all having a tip-top day.

SSX gameplay trailer goes tricky

Check out EA’s new Tricky gameplay trailer for SSX. It has Melon grabs, Switch Indy grabs, Seatbelt grabs and other types of grabs – basically, it shows more grabs than we can realistically get a grip of.

European PS Store Update for December 21 – more like a 6 ft. turkey

This week the store continues to enjoy its much needed injection of dinosaurs via Jurassic Park: The Game. While we’re admittedly unsure of whether or not the game’s worth the download, few things are not improved by velociraptors.

Other highlights this week include full game downloads of Ico and Shadow of The Colossus as well as a nugget of free DLC for Batman: Arkham City.

Take a look.

Vanguard Bandits – The PS3 Attitude Review

Vanguard Bandits – The PS3 Attitude Review

Originally released for the PSone, Vanguard Bandits makes its PSN debut in North America, nearly two years after its Japanese PSN release. The game features giant armored mechs battling it out in a tactical RPG fashion, like in Final Fantasy Tactics. With so many games in the genre nowadays, can this 10-year-old title still draw blood, or is it destined to collect rust on the battlefield?

North American PS Store Update for December 20 – Trine 2

If you’ve still got some money rattling around in your bank account you’ll be happy to see Trine 2 making its way to the store this week. The action-platformer looks to be a nice addition for all libraries.

Other highlights this week include a smattering of free DLC and a hefty grouping of discounts headlined by the original Trine.

BurgerTime World Tour – The PS3 Attitude Review

BurgerTime World Tour – The PS3 Attitude Review

MonkeyPaw Games is most notable for bringing original Japanese PlayStation titles over to the American and European PSN. With titles such as Chou Aniki and Sonic Wings Special, they’ve become somewhat of a niche. Their latest release, however, is not an import but a remake of the classic arcade game BurgerTime.

In BurgerTime, the object of the game is to create delicious hamburgers one layer at a time, all the while avoiding the dangerous condiments and toppings that try and stop you. It was popular back in the 80s and MonkeyPaw Games has teamed up with developers Frozen Codebase to bring the game into the current generation with BurgerTime World Tour.

Carnival Island – The PS3 Attitude Review

It’s easy to be sniffy about Magic Pixel Games’ Move-using Carnival Island. Hey, I like to play hardcore games aimed at adults, and this is clearly not one of those. It’s also been so long since I was of the age that would — in theory — appreciate this, it’s hard to give a proper judgement without sounding patronising. So, now we’ve got that disclaimer out the way, let’s get on with the review.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 lets you become the Master of Monsters

One of the new gameplay elements of Final Fantasy XIII-2 is that you now have the ability to capture monsters and recruit them to your party for future battles. Like any other party member, monsters have special attacks and their abilities can be upgraded.

The latest gameplay trailer shows off the breadth of capturing monsters and customizing them to fit your party. With more than 150 different types to collect, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is looking to be the most expansive game in the series yet.

North American PS Store Update for December 13 – holiday savings abound

Nothing warms the heart of a young child quite like a stocking full of gifts on Christmas morning. That’s why this year the PlayStation Store is making it easier than ever to purchase some great games for your loved ones. Sit back and enjoy the sight as they pull the strips of paper you used to scrawl the download code on from their otherwise deflated gift sock.

Hitman Absolution; this time it’s personal

A new trailer for Hitman Absolution debuted at the Spike TV Video Game Awards this weekend. Skipping the stealthy assassinations the franchise is known for, the trailer puts Agent 47 right in the middle of a firefight where his only option is to go in guns blazing.

The Last of Us: unravelling the new hottest game in the world

The cryptic unveiling of The Last of Us last week piqued our interest. It wasn’t so much the news of an upcoming game that got us thinking, or even the fact it’s a PS3 exclusive; it was more the tease from Spike TV host Geoff Keighley that it’s being developed by an “amazing developer”.
