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?
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.
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…
In all the excitement of Sony’s PlayStation 4 reveal two weeks ago, it’s easy to forget that we still have several months’ worth of PS3 games to look forward to! We’ve already seen the likes of DmC: Devil May Cry, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Tomb Raider (to name a few!) this year, but those games were merely the tip of the iceberg of what’s still to come.
As usual, the PS3 Attitude team has been playing a wide range of videogames over the past week. Amongst other things, we’ve been busy stealth-killing in Assassin’s Creed III, slicing and dicing in Metal Gear …
It’s been a pretty quiet week at Attitude Towers but it wasn’t without its moments, with the usual announcements, reveals and other news from the world of gaming.
The past week saw a number of high profile PS3 games finally get confirmed release dates; Capcom’s Remember Me, Deep Silver’s Metro: Last Night and Sony’s Beyond: Two Souls.
It seems like every other week there’s another announcement of a popular PC game coming to PS3 and PS Vita! First it was Frozen Synapse, then Hotline Miami, and now is the turn of puzzle …
Gabe Newell, managing director of Valve and one of the most respected figures in the games industry, is to become a fellow of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
It’s safe to say that the announcement of the PS4 has got the PS3 Attitude team pretty excited about the rest of the year (even though it’s also got us wondering whether we should change the name of the site). Anyway, fortunately we still have plenty to keep us occupied on PS3 before we plunge headfirst into next-gen. Here’s what we’ve been up to this week…
We have a vague recollection that a big announcement happened this week, but we can’t quite remember what it was. Oh wait, that’s it! Sony revealed the PlayStation 4, along with a bunch of new games…
