Ex-Staff Writer and Assistant Editor. He wrote a really awesome review of Blue Toad Murder Files Eps 4-6 that took AGES but it never got published for reasons unknown. Shame that. :(
With Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands out this week, we thought you might enjoy a look at some behind the scenes footage of the developers talking about the next chapter in the renowned wall-runner’s time-bending ways.
The footage focuses on the Prince’s brother, a bearded bad-ass who, facing the defeat of his city, unleashes a sand army he believes he can control. You can guess where this is heading. We also get an explanation as to why, in a region where water is so precious, it’s wastefully pouring all over place. The reason: decadence.
Announced as a PSN console-exclusive planned for release on April 22nd in NA, Lead & Gold: Gangs of the Wild West promises to excite fans of shooters and the rough and tumble days of the old frontier. Coming across like a Western Team Fortress, the online game will encourage team collaboration and reward players for cooperative play.
We speak to SpecialEffect, a UK based charity whose primary aim is to include people with disabilities in gaming, an industry that, despite perpetuating the concept of allowing people to experience fantastic things, routinely exclude those who would benefit the most from simulation.
It’s a fascinating insight into what charities like SpecialEffect are doing to change the lives of young and old people alike through the wonder of gaming.
As source material goes, 14th century prose written in Italian that rambles on for hundreds of pages (14,000 lines in fact) is understandably not often found at the top of many game producers’ lists.
When said material has been instrumental in forging modern society’s perception of Hell, however, suddenly Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy shakes off the funk of a few hundred years and starts to look more and more like a candidate for a rip-roaring adventure.
Never let it be said that war isn’t a complex, demanding beast. Especially war on multiple fronts.
Greed Corp., Amsterdam-based W!Games’ inaugural PSN game replete with multiple layers (literally) of nuance and precarious balance, could be used as testimonial evidence of this opening statement.
With two new racing games currently in development, PS3 Attitude took the opportunity to catch-up with Anton Yudintsev, Gaijin Entertainment’s CEO and President, to talk about the first of two titles due for an exclusive release on the PSN in the coming weeks.
Anarchy: Rush Hour might not be a game you are currently familiar with, but this is something Anton and his team are hoping will change quite soon.
Unforgiving. Tense. Subtle. Light Weight’s seminal one-on-one fighting classic Bushido Blade was many things.
What it wasn’t, however, was just another run of the mill beat ‘em up along the traditional lines of the Street Fighters and Tekkens of the brawling world.
Though technically not coming from Japan at all (it was developed in Squaresoft’s California office), Parasite Eve is very much the quintessential Japanese game.
An RPG with lush cinematics and quirky random battles, Squaresoft’s modern day tale of transformation and deceit ticks a lot of boxes when compared to similar games that surfaced in the late 90s.
After our meaty hands-on, we were really looking forward to hearing what you guys thought of the new Aliens Vs. Predator game.
It would appear, however, that some technical issues have plagued the release of the multiplayer demo, and those of you hoping to get your slicin’ and dicin’ on, may still be waiting.
Fans of parachuting and grappling hooks, we hope you’re sitting down. Announcing via a tweet on the official Eidos Twitter account, a demo for Just Cause 2 is inbound.
Speaking to IGN, Sony VP and the man in charge of the PSN, Peter Dille, has offered his opinion on why the PS3 failed initially to ignite in the sales department and how, eventually, Sony’s console will surpass its main HD rival, the Xbox 360.
Long before Master Chief and his elliptical world. Before the invasions of Vekta and the subsequent incursion into Helghan. There was Aliens Vs. Predator (hereafter AvP).
Shocking the bejesus out of us all back in 1999 when it reared its xenomorphic tongue-sprouting head on the PC (though this author also remembers the Jaguar version quite fondly), Rebellion’s marrying of both action properties – while also inspired by the eponymous Dark Horse comics – have a special place in the hearts of a lot of FPS veterans. Right where the chest-burster usually goes.
With a new AvP game on the dark horizon, we got the opportunity to visit the guys at Rebellion and get a first-hand look at how the resurrection of one of the most renown franchises in the FPS arena is coming along.
Though we like to stay clear of the shady underbelly of the rumour machine here at PS3 Attitude, that doesn’t mean we can’t state the facts and let you guys put two and two together and come up with a spiky-haired speeding rodent.
We’ve already discussed how Project Needlemouse will feature SEGA’s renown mascot, Sonic, on his own. What seems to have come out now, however, thanks to some internet domain name investigations, is that Needlemouse could be in fact Sonic The Hedgehog 4.
After zombies and then Mad Moxxis, Gearbox have announced their next DLC outing for fan-favourite Borderlands.
Entitled The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, the new update not only promises the largest environment yet, there’s also new weapons, new enemies – and something fans have been clamouring for – an increase to the current level cap of 50.
Fresh from their recent success with Bayonetta, Platinum Games have announced their latest enterprise, Vanquish.
Getting in before our resident SF nut Delriach manages to snare the news, Capcom have announced that renown anime studio Gonzo will release a new anime movie based on the upcoming Super Street Fighter IV game.
And from the trailer embedded here, it’s looking pretty spectacular.
LinkedIn, the professional version of Facebook, is always a goldmine for nuggets of information regarding upcoming games.
According to one profile, Jonathan vd Wijngaarden, a Sound Designer at Dutch studio PlayLogic Games Factory, is currently working on an unannounced PS3 SCEE title scheduled for release this Fall.
If the old adage that sex sells is true, then Platinum Games’ Bayonetta must be having a fire sale.
The latest from the man who gave us Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe and Okami, Hideki Kamiya has labelled his witch starring action romp Bayonetta as the game he always wanted to make.
If such is the case, it’s safe to assume Kamiya-san has a penchant for three things in life: highly-sexed women, the supernatural instilled with a heavy dash of religious overtone, and action. Action that can literally cause eyeballs to extend out from their sockets in disbelief.
Did you miss out on the awesome Battlefield: Bad Company 2 closed beta? Never fear – a demo is coming.
The news comes to us from UK retail gaming store GAME, revealing that a taster of DICE’s FPS action will be available on February 4th.
