With MitchJay still on holiday, it was up to the rest of the PS3 Attitude team to make up for his lack of play time. This week, DolphGB continued his indiscretion with The Last of Us (I know, it’s getting a bit awkward now, isn’t it?), Majiesto finally completed his playthrough of the BioShock saga, and I became engrossed in an incredible little game called Gone Home.
Thief will be coming to current and next-gen consoles early next year on February 25, 2014 in North America and on February 28, 2014 in Europe, Square Enix announced today.
In addition, Eidos-Montreal have unveiled the box art for the game along with a new gamescom trailer entitled “Uprising.” Garrett the Master Thief is torn between the people in the city and the politicians who run it.
Mike Bithell, creator of the excellent Thomas Was Alone, has just announced his latest project. Volume is a top-down stealth game with an emphasis on user-created content, and it looks – in a word – awesome.
This week, DolphGB forgot that any games exist other than The Last of Us, Majiesto finally reached Columbia in his mammoth playthrough of the BioShock series, I cried my eyes out after completing The Walking Dead (why, Telltale, why?!), and MitchJay92 went on holiday. Oh, and we’re not jealous of him, by the way. At all. Seriously. Well, maybe just a little bit.
KickBeat, the kung-fu music rhythm action game, is finally coming to PS3 and Vita early next month.
Zen United are developing it and they’re best known for their Zen Pinball titles, and best of all, they’ve happily confirmed that it will be a cross-buy title.
With the latest game in the Tales Of series, we follow Milla and Jude on their journey to restore mana back to the world.
Boasting upgraded graphics, a more in-depth combat system, and series character designers Kosuke Fujishima and Mutsumi Inomata both working together for the first time on a single game, we look in to whether or not Xillia is the ultimate Tales Of title.
Zatanna, one of the well-known magicians of the DC Universe, is joining the ever-growing cast of Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Ed Boon is clearly listening to fans as he’s delivering some of the most highly requested fighters for Injustice, and yes, they are from the DC Universe rather than the world of Mortal Kombat.
Warner Bros. has announced that the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins can be purchased in 2 flavours – standard or collector’s.
The collector’s edition will release alongside the standard on 25th October worldwide.
The Last of Us. Dishonored. BioShock 2. Assassin’s Creed III. Persona 4: Golden. Final Fantasy XIII. The Walking Dead. Rapala Fishing Frenzy 2009.
All but one of these games has been played by the PS3 Attitude team this week, so can you guess which is the imposter? (Seriously, it isn’t that difficult.)
PlayStation All-Stars released to underwhelming reviews and sales and, although we feel that it’s a better game than what was poorly advertised, it’s clear that Sony did not give it to attention that it deserved.
So sadly, it won’t be a surprise to many that DLC has been axed for the once-promising title.
Twenty publishers are hoping to acquire developer Atlus by the end of August.
Atlus are well-known for their highly-acclaimed series’ Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, Trauma Centre and standalone title Catherine. Also known for their adorable Jack Frost mascot.
Stealth Inc revolves around clones participating in tests for a manufacturer. It’s either complete the tests or be destroyed by turrets, lasers, robots and more.
You might be thinking, ‘Wow, sounds a bit like Portal!’ and while that’s true to a certain extent, it’s a bit more sadistic than any tests created by GlaDOS and Aperture. It may tickle your funny bone, but it may also crush it.
After seven weeks, The Last of Us has finally been dethroned from the top of the UK videogames chart, so I thought now was a good time for a retrospective look at my own personal experience with the game. This is the story of how my feelings towards Naughty Dog’s latest adventure went from scornful indifference to something not too far from reverence.
WARNING: The following article contains MAJOR spoilers for The Last of Us. Please only read if you have either completed the game or don’t mind the story being ruined.
