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 God of War Collection dropping on November 17th, Kratos fans new and old will soon be storming Olympus in their attempts to pick up some glorious trophies.
Highlighting one of the more difficult to obtain trinkets over at the official US blog, lead tester on the game, Stephen Peterson, shows us just how it’s done. Battle your way to the Loom Chamber in less than 10 minutes? Gold we say.
You need only peruse this article to learn just how much we love Vagrant Story here at PS3 Attitude.
The story, the execution, how it perfectly balances role-playing elements with action and story – it’s an absolute triumph.
Considering the PS1 classic hit the Japanese PSN a few months ago, we speculated that it would only be a matter of time before other PS Stores around the globe would be graced with its presence.
That time is now. Well, that time is November 12th. Same difference.
When Ubisoft came out and declared Splinter Cell: Conviction as a “true exclusive” for the Xbox 360, we bet all you Sam Fisher-ionados out there thought: “That’s it, I really need to let all hopes of hooking up with Sam on my PS3 again go.”
Time to jump back on the will-it-won’t-it merry-go-round again as, while speaking to Videogamer, Ubisoft’s CEO Yannis Mallat has suggested it might still happen.
Craig Alexander, VP of product development over at Turbine, knows a thing or two about MMOs.
So, when he stepped up and presented a talk at GDC in Austin, Texas, you know a lot of people would take what he had to say seriously.
And what’s more serious than a vanguard of the massive multiple online arena announcing that the future of MMOs are not on their current breeding ground, the PC, but on consoles.
And, what’s more, if you’re going to make an MMO for this new market, you’re better off starting with the PS3.
Admitting that the surfacing of this video on numerous sites was an “uncontrolled side effect” of seeking out a new publisher, Adam Kicinski from CD Projekt has confirmed to VG247 the existence of PC game Witcher 2.
No news if this one will ever hit the PS3 and, considering the first Witcher game failed to release on consoles due to financial issues over at the Polish studio, we wouldn’t be surprised if this stayed PC only.
When a recent report appeared online indicating that the PS3 version of Bayonetta suffered from a laggy frame-rate and other graphical anomalies, we have to admit that we got a little worried.
Up until recently, all …
Confirming to Joystiq that they won’t be discussing why their far into development Aliens RPG suddenly got canned this year until February (of 2011), Obsidian Entertainment have revealed some good news indicating how it wasn’t a total waste of time.
The engine created for the game will be used in an upcoming unannounced title.
We’re not quite sure of the logic behind developing two games that share a great deal in common but having one exclusive for the PS3 and the other for the 360. We guess SquareEnix have their reasons.
Nier RepliCant (the PS3 outing) has a slightly more effeminate protagonist and, instead of trying to save a daughter, the PS3 version seems to switch in a sister in peril.
If you’re already participating in the MAG beta you may already be aware of a couple of things.
Firstly, the servers are currently buckling due to the influx of Qore subscribers, new beta code lottery winners and other assorted people coming online and hammering the hardware.
Another thing you probably recall is how, after finally getting your grubby hands on a beta code, the actual download weighed in at an almighty 3GB. Well, according to the all-knowing “Shijima”, this download size could actually double during the beta period to a jaw-dropping 6 GiggleBytes.
True to their post-apocalyptic word, Bethesda have narrowed down “the end of September” a little and have announced that the PS3 flavour of Fallout 3 DLC will commence with Broken Steel on September 24th.
This will be followed up with Operation Anchorage and The Pitt on October 1st with the final two add-ons, Point Lookout and the alien themed Mothership Zeta, completing the package on October 8th.
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz about topics such as Army of Two 40th Day and prototyping for Sony’s new Motion Controller, EA Montréal’s Alain Tascan responded favourably to the idea of the studio revisiting an old favourite — the much adored snowboarding franchise: SSX.
Commenting on the torrent of responses to a Valkyria Chronicles II (PSP) post over at the official blog where fervent fans of the original decided to hijack the thread and bark on about those missing Trophies once again, Sega’s Aaron Webber had something interesting to say about the now fabled Valkyria Chronicles update. And, guess what folks, it could happen.
Speaking to 1UP, Capcom’s Jun Takeuchi (Resi Evil 5/Lost Planet) has gone on the record for the whole of the Japanese development community* and stated that Sony’s introduction of a Motion Controller (due next spring) will signal the start of possible Wii to PS3 ports.
Which has got us thinking. Just how many current Wii games would we even want on the PS3? Our conclusion? Not many.
You may recall we mentioned the upcoming free Batman: Arkham Asylum DLC.
Well, Eidos have now dated the impending download along with releasing some scant details of what’s in store for us Bat lovers.
There’s no doubt that Japanese developers have been jumping into Microsoft’s deep pockets since the start of this generation of gaming.
However, many people have been baffled as to why a Japanese developer would release a game exclusively for a console that has a significantly lower user-base in Japan. And usually in the RPG genre, a genre Japanese gamers traditionally go bananas over.
A Japanese developer has now posted on his blog as to why so many developers from his native land are going first with Microsoft. And how PS3 fans are benefiting from it.
Despite being only available for two days of week-ending September 12th, Activision’s Guitar Hero 5 has usurped the U.K.’s top chart spot from long-standing champ Batman: Arkham Asylum.
News is trickling in here to the Attitude Nexus that the previously promised Firmware update 3.01 (aka “Sorry we broke Uncharted” fix) is now live in some regions.
Details are sketchy at the moment but it appears that the only thing different is the aforementioned game will no longer crash like a drunk monkey driven plane.
Remember that bizarre RPG from the guys over at From Software we mentioned last month? The one completely made out of blocks?
Well, prepare for something even weirder with the first look of 3D Dot Game Heroes in all its moving glory.
Borderlands just keeps on looking better and better.
With its fresh visual style and quirky humour, we’re getting more excited by the day in anticipation of getting our hands on Gearbox’s insane shooter.
But who will we be playing with when the game arrives next month? Sit back and meet the crew.
