It is that time. Time for us to announce the final three PS3 Attitude Awards; the Editor’s Choice, Developer’s Choice and Game of the Year. Are you ready? Strap yourself in…
News of Battlefield 4’s existence has been around since it was announced that players who pre-ordered Medal of Honor: Warfighter would gain access to its beta, but the game has been mostly kept under wraps until recently. Now, EA have revealed its first gameplay trailer, and it clocks in at a whopping 17 minutes!
Last month we asked you, our dear readers, to vote for your favorite games of 2012. Categories ranged from Best Developer to Best PS Vita Game and the votes were as diverse as the games themselves. We’ve gone and tallied up all your votes and we are pleased to announce the winners of this year’s PS3 Attitude Awards!
So without further adieu…
Terraria was originally released on PC in May 2011, and quickly developed a cult following. A couple of months’ ago the game was also announced for consoles, and today it finally arrives on PSN!
It looks like the entire PS3 Attitude team has had a busy week, but we still managed to find a little time for our favourite pastime. Topping the list of our most played games over the past week was Team Ninja’s awesome fighter Dead or Alive 5 (on both PS3 and Vita), but God of War: Ascension, Lumines: Electronic Symphony and Persona 4: Golden all proved popular too.
It’s been an undeniably quiet week at PS3 Attitude, although we did bring you a couple of big features in the form of our definitive God of War: Ascension review as well as our thoughts on Dead or Alive 5 Plus.
The PlayStation Vita is no stranger to fighting games. In the last year we’ve already seen the likes of BlazBlue, Mortal Kombat, PS All-Stars Battle Royale and Street Fighter all appear on Sony’s handheld console. So does Dead or Alive 5 Plus have what it takes to compete?
A warrior’s journey is never truly finish and although Kratos has conquered Mount Olympus and toppled the gods, there is still much to be told. God of War: Ascension chronicles the beginning of Kratos’ journey as he breaks his blood oath with Ares and vows vengeance on the god of war. It’s an act that draws the wrath of the three Furies, the guardians and enforcers of punishment on those who disobey the gods. Not one to stand down lightly, Kratos does what he does best; kill everything.
Has Kratos ascended beyond the status of a god or does his latest venture sink to the depths of Hades?
The highly anticipated Persona 4 Arena will finally be hitting European shores later this year with a release date of 10th May, so make sure to mark your calendars!
It’ll be launching on PS3 almost a whole year after it released in Japan and the US and to make up for the delay, we’ll be treated to some exclusive pre-order bonuses.
This week, DolphGB has been proving how much of a danger to society he is in Hitman: Absolution, Majiesto has likely been doing much the same in God of War: Ascension, MitchJay92 has become just a little obsessed with Persona 4: Golden, and I’ve been incessantly running to the right while jumping over gaps and avoiding obstacles; wait, what?
The ridiculous post-Christmas release schedule is still going strong, with God of War: Ascension being the latest blockbuster release on PS3. You can expect a review from us soon, but in the meantime here’s what else we’ve been writing about during the last week.
See, what did we tell you? Another couple of weeks go by, and yet another acclaimed PC title is announced for PS3 and PS Vita. This time around it’s the 2D survival-horror game, Lone Survivor.
Since shortly after the release of Saints Row: The Third, it’s been common knowledge that Volition, Inc. has been working on the next game in the unashamedly irreverent action/adventure series. That game has now been officially announced as Saints Row IV in the debut trailer.
Payday 2 is the forthcoming sequel to Payday: The Heist, the co-operative first-person shooter that made you the bad guy, attempting to rob from the rich to give to yourself. PS3 Attitude were invited to a preview of the altogether bigger and broader ‘rob-em-up’.
The ultimate DC villain Doomsday will be joining the character roster for Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios announced today.
The North American PlayStation Store has officially been refreshed.
Each week, PS3 Attitude shares the games and content new to PS3, Vita, and sometimes PSP. Full PS3 disc-based games become digital downloads, new PSN titles rise up, indie games make their mark, and PlayStation Mobile games blaze a new trail.
Tomb Raider is one of those rare videogame franchises that has permeated into mainstream culture; and yet in the last decade, the series has struggled to keep up with similar action/adventure titles. In January, Ninja Theory showed exactly how to reboot a classic videogame series with DmC: Devil May Cry, so has Crystal Dynamics been able to do the same for Tomb Raider?
As you might expect, the recently released (not to mention awesome!) Tomb Raider features prominently in this week’s PlayTime. As well as Crystal Dynamics’ stellar reboot, we’ve also been playing an eclectic mix of other games including DmC: Devil May Cry, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Lumines: Electronic Symphony (just one more go!!!), and Zen Pinball 2.
The biggest event of the past week was undoubtedly the release of the highly anticipated Tomb Raider reboot. Unfortunately you’ll have to wait just a tiny bit longer for our definitive review, but here’s what else has been going on recently…
