TNT Racers – The PS3 Attitude Review

Motosports come in all shapes and sizes, from the massively realistic races of Gran Turismo 5 to the slot cars of PixelJunk Racers. Somewhere in between lies TNT Racers; an arcade-style multiplayer racer where driving skill and power-ups determines the winner.

Originally released for the PSP and Wii, TNT Racers has finally made it to the PSN and Xbox LIVE. Does the downloadable title manage to pack an explosive punch, or does its fuse fizzle out before the starting flag is waved?

Namco Bandai teams up with Insert Coin Clothing for SoulCalibur V

Namco Bandai has teamed up with video game t-shirt company Insert Coin Clothing to bring fans an official SoulCalibur V shirt, just in time for its February release date.

Insert Coin Tees have always been of the highest quality gaming shirts, and typically feature some of the more obscure references such as Calber’s Fine English Ketchup from Metal Gear Solid or Hog Wild Airtours from Uncharted. No doubt the SoulCalibur franchise is in good hands.

European PS Store Update for January 4 – Feels a little light

L.A. Noire | Writer’s GOTY

L.A. Noire | Writer’s GOTY

I’m staring apologetically at my copy of Uncharted 3 as I begin writing this game of the year piece. It’s because it isn’t my game of the year, despite it being the best attempt yet to tie cinematic action with great gameplay and an emotional story. It is a sensational game, and it probably should be the game of the year.

I’ve gone for L.A. Noire instead though, and I’ll briefly explain why. At about this time last year, I decided I wanted something different in 2011. Don’t get me wrong, I looked forward to the big sequels and blockbuster action games as much as the next person did; however, I hoped for something more mature and thoughtful. I wanted a game that dares to be different. I wanted the next Heavy Rain, essentially.

…and a Happy New Year. 2012; a PS3 Attitude odyssey

Another year over. A new one just begun.

2011 was a real corker for the PlayStation 3. And for PS3 Attitude too. We got up to all sorts of shenanigans over the last twelve months, and some of us still have the bruises to prove it.

But this isn’t going to be one of those lame retrospective list articles that counts down our favourite moments from the last year. Oh no. This is 2012. This is about what comes next.

So strap yourselves in and get ready for the ride.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution | Writer’s GOTY

Deus Ex: Human Revolution | Writer’s GOTY

2011 was a superb year for video games with titles such as Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Killzone 3, Modern Warfare 3, and a slew of other games, both with and without 3 in the title. With so many great contenders out there, it’s been difficult to pick just one to crown as Game of the Year.

I’ll admit that narrowing down my list of top games was a difficult task, but there was always one game that stuck out most; one game that managed to satisfy every criteria in my head; one game that excelled in all aspects. As a result, I’ve chosen Deus Ex: Human Revolution as the best game of 2011.
