Dishonored – The PS3 Attitude Review

The Lyon-based Arkane Studios has previously worked on BioShock 2, and its new game, Dishonored, has more than a little in common with that series. From the first-person view to the supernatural powers and stylised visuals, many aspects of Dishonored feel familiar, so have we seen it all before, or does it have enough fresh ideas to stand on its own?

5 innovations that revolutionised gaming

So-called gaming ‘innovations’ normally disappear after a few short months, but occasionally they strike a real chord with players and stand the test of time. We’ve compiled a list of five genuine innovations that have truly revolutionised gaming, and show no signs of going away.

5 PSN games that are more creative than most

Blockbuster games cost a lot of money to make, so publishers are understandably cautious about taking any design risks. Thankfully, taking risks is where downloadable games absolutely shine, and the reason why they’re often much more innovative than big retail games. Listed below are five of our favourite PSN games, due to their incredible ingenuity, ambition and creativity.

PS Vita gets another free game; Ecolibrium

With addictive titles such as Treasures of Montezuma Blitz and Frobisher Says!, gamers can hardly move for free games on PS Vita right now. You can never have too many free games though, so Sony has announced that another one is arriving on the PS Store tomorrow, entitled Ecolibrium.

5 uses of Sixaxis that DON’T suck

Ah, Sixaxis. Remember that? Sony pushed this motion-sensing technology in a big way before the launch of the PS3, but then Lair came out and everyone decided it was the worst thing in the world. That said, there are some good uses of the Sixaxis out there, so let’s take some time to remember them; to be honest we initially struggled to get to five, but we got there in the end!

5 voice actors’ CVs that go on forever

Contrary to popular opinion, voice acting can be an extremely stressful job, and painfully difficult to sustain a livelihood from. However, a handful of talented people make the job look (and sound) easy, and their extensive portfolios are a testament to their skills. This week, PS3 Attitude is paying tribute to five of our favourite voice actors, and taking a look at their established careers.

5 developers that we wish still existed

Earlier this week, SCE Studio Liverpool became the latest in a long line of developers to unfortunately close their doors. It’s no secret that the videogame industry has been hit extremely hard by the global recession in recent years, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to remember five of our favourite development studios that are sadly no longer with us.

Discovering the PlayStation Vita

A couple of months ago, I wrote about how I was perfectly happy with my trusty PSP, while I waited until I could afford a Vita. Well, a few weeks ago that day finally came, so I’ve spent the last month getting to grips (as well as swipes, tilts and taps) with Sony’s latest handheld console.

5 games that have awesome credits

Staff credits shouldn’t just be a list of names; they should be a reward for completing the game. Unfortunately most titles choose to take the former route, forcing us to make a cup of tea until we can take control again. However, very occasionally, a game’s credits more than justify the time spent getting up to that point, and remind us why we started playing in the first place.

GC2012; New ACIII: Liberation trailer is very Assassin’s Creed

Any lingering worries that you may have about AC III: Liberation not being a full-fat Assassin’s Creed game can definitely be put firmly to bed, as the new trailer shows that the title will be very much sticking to the franchise’s stealthy and stabby roots.

GC2012; Rayman Legends not coming to PS3 after all

Though Ubisoft hasn’t shown any PS3 footage of upcoming platformer Rayman Legends, everyone (including us) just assumed that it would come to the same consoles as Rayman Origins, which would include PS3 and Vita. Well, the latest trailer finally reveals the truth, and unfortunately it doesn’t make happy viewing for PlayStation gamers.

GC2012; Sony shows off cross control play for LittleBigPlanet 2

With the Wii U’s tablet controller and the Xbox 360’s SmartGlass technology, it looks like dual-screen gaming is the future for home consoles. Now Sony has hit back with an impressive demo of its own, in which the Vita is used as a controller to play LittleBigPlanet 2 on PS3.

GC2012; PS3 and Vita get more ‘Cross Buy’ games

The PS3 and PS Vita have seen a handful of Cross Buy titles (purchase one version of a game, get the other for free) in the last few months, including MotorStorm RC and the recently released (and brilliant) Sound Shapes, but up until now they’ve all been relatively small PSN games, not full retail titles. Well, that’s all set to change later this year.

5 PSN trophies that are EVIL!

This week, PS3 Attitude has been discussing PSN trophies, or more specifically, trophies that must have spawned from the depths of hell. Everyone loves trophies, but occasionally a challenge will come along that is so ridiculously hard and/or time consuming, you have to think to yourself; what’s the point? These are our picks for 5 of the most evil trophies on PSN.

5 kart racers that we’d like to see

5 kart racers that we’d like to see

Every generation, Sony takes one of its biggest franchises and turns it into a kart racer; on PSone it was Crash Bandicoot, on PS2 it was Jak and Daxter, and on PS3 it will be LittleBigPlanet. Kart racers are often looked upon with contempt by many gamers, because it normally signals the end of a console generation, and a refocus towards a more casual audience.

However, they also (usually) happen to be bloody good fun, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take a look at which other games we’d like to see given the kart racing treatment.
