Voted PS3 Attitude's favorite Staff Writer 15 minutes in a row, this undisputed and unrelenting Trophy King is among the weirdest individuals you will ever read from. Or about. Aboot if you're Canadian. Entertainment is the game and you already know his name. It's Danny_D by the way.
We told you in our review that it wasn’t a game breaker, but most of you went and cried foul anyway about Ghostbusters’ resolution on the PS3 when compared to the Xbox 360 version. “We got effed in the a” was the general consensus of many a PS3 owner. Maybe there was some truth to that after all. Maybe.
Took them long enough. The team at Slant Six in conjunction with Sony Computer Entertainment America is finally (finally) ready to unleash the mother of all patches to one of the games that has needed them the most. We speak about the almost mythical patch 1.50 and SOCOM: Confrontation. The patch to bring SOCOM from under the rug and into the limelight is finally almost upon us.
We heard through the grapevine that someone got four demos today. Sure, North America got only two out of four, but the NA territory also got the PSN game Smash Cars. Depending on the current exchange rate, that could be far better or just the same as four demos. Well…You figure it out.
You can’t say that SCEE doesn’t have your back, at least until next week. Europe has a whopping four demos today. That’s right, count ‘em with us: DiRT2 (one, one demo), WET (two, two demos), Mini Ninjas (three, three demos) and IL2 Sturmovik. Four! Four demos! A-ha-ha-ha-ha! We love to count demos!
We are nearing the release of the long awaited and somewhat fabled Firmware 3.0 for the PlayStation 3. How do we know we’re close to see it? Not only it was just announced at GamesCom, but the US PlayStation.Blog released a video update on how the new firmware is coming along with a slightly new look.
Do you enjoy the music of the Foo Fighters? Harmonix thinks you do, and they know everything music related. Everything. So there’s more Foo for yoo. A new pack (of the three track persuasion) will commemorate the return of the Fighters to Rock Band. But wait, there’s more.
It’s been a while since we have seen so many freakin’ add-ons in a PlayStation Store update. It’s like EA went on another mindless money grubbing add-on blitz. Oh wait, they did. But this time Madden NFL 10 is the culprit.
But all is not nonsense, Marvel vs Capcom 2 is finally on the PlayStation Network and the demo made it too. So did Droplitz (the game) and Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (the demo).
BlurBlur looks like a grownup’s Mario Kart. Powerups, powerups, powerups. And nitro. Apparently everyone uses it these days, even folks in tiny toy cars.
With 20 cars, 14 tracks, lots of powerups and them twins Blur (or Bleh as the developers like to call it) is shaping up to be a fun racing game. But Blur offers a bit more than just straight up racing, you can bully your way to the front of the pack by barging, shunting and shocking the competition.
Feed me! Time to stuff royalty with magic cake; we know you have been waiting for it. Why do we know this, because so have we.
Lost in the cake excitement is the second part of Watchmen: The End is Nigh. At the same price of Fat Princess, PS3 Attitude predicts that Princess will win the popular vote by a landslide.
Planet_51Have you heard about the film Planet 51? It’s a new animated film from the writer of Shrek and Shrek 2. Like almost (every?) new animated film it’s getting a videogame that launches with the movie. But what will Planet 51 The Game will be all about?
Here’s the premise, American astronaut Captain Charles “Chuck” Baker (that’s you) lands on Planet 51 thinking he’s the only person on the entire planet, but the reality is quite the opposite.
Rag Doll Kung Fu, our favorite (only?) PSN kung fu fighting game featuring plastic dolls will release a pack today in Europe, nothing confirmed for North America but we expect it to appear there as well.
But this is not the long awaited and sorely needed online mode pack that everyone and their grandmother have been asking for. Following in the footsteps of worthless DLC churner extraordinaire EA Games, Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic will offer a ‘Time Saver’s Pack’ that will unlock all extra playable characters and costumes in the game.
You will be forced to dust your copy of NBA 2K9 in anticipation of NBA 2K10 no more! 2K Sports announced today that a new downloadable title will make the waiting for NBA 2K10 that more pleasurable with NBA 2K10: Draft Combine. But what exactly is a Draft Combine? The real life counterpart is apparently about long interviews with prospective teams, a bunch of drills and a physical. Not really videogame material right?
While most of us were born into a life of comfort and relative luxury in the big cities of the world, some were born into a life of a little less comfort. We’re talking waking up at the crack of dawn, as opposed to the crack of noon, heading out into the wilderness ready to drink some beers and shoot something. Hopefully not your buddy’s face. Git r’ done.
You guys and gals know about Shatter, you were waiting for Napalm & Cordite, ready for the Fury add-on but there’s just so much more.
Call of Duty: World at War gets a demo for those too busy playing Call of Duty 4 to care about it at launch, WILD ARMS 2 is the star of the two PSone Classics released today, Cross Edge keeps throwing free packs at you while Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires tries to keep up.
Now this is more like it. Games, demos, and add-ons that everyone can enjoy! And by ‘demos’ I mean only one of them. Of course you could argue that any update that has new content for both WipEout HD and Killzone 2 would be a good one regardless of what else comes out that week, but nobody likes a smart ass. Maybe a donkey with math homework would like a smart ass, but that’s another story.
So there’s WipEout and Killzone 2 DLC, but what else is worthy? How about new downloadable games Shatter and Crystal Defenders; the latter beating the North American PS Store to the punch.
Well would you look at that. A very nice North American PlayStation Store update plus a baker’s half-dozen (that’s seven) of ‘PlayStation Network Favorites’ for a discounted price. Notice how it does not read favourites; this is for North America only. We can just feel a whole continent seething right about now.
But for the lucky ones in the ‘new country’ it’s nothing but love from Sony and the PlayStation gang: one new game, one new PSone classic, three new demos, a new Pulse and a bunch of other add-ons and wallpapers to boot.
Sure, still no Metal Gear Solid 1 or Bomberman, or anything else with ‘weight’ besides the weekly LBP, Rock Band and Guitar Hero World Tour offerings. At least those are not delayed. Oh no, I think I may have jinxed it…
Disney’s Tarzan for the PSone? F-yeah! Themes for the on-again off-again Battlefield 1943? At least you can pretend to play the game while browsing your XMB while cursing EA and DICE. Bonus Mission for The Last Guy? I got it! this update is a clever ploy to get all of Europe to buy The Last Guy DLC in frustration. Is it working? But seriously, The Last Guy rules.
In November 2008 Joris de Man took Killzone 2 to Abbey Road. He asked independent producers Open Book to document his experience and in the film Joris tells us how he has made the music for Killzone over the years.
Learn where in the world the Helghast March was born, the somewhat unusual instruments used in the Killzone 2 score and the amazing talent behind it all. Don’t think that the lengthy history of the famed Abbey Road Studio is lost on Joris or the team involved in the recording process, in fact it was a source of inspiration and drive for everyone involved.
Everything comes in twos. Knowing and Push. Napalm and Cordite. This guy and Trophy Whoring. Too bad no one told Harmonix. Three bands, three songs, three packs. Three is the new two.
Judas Priest, Big Dipper and The Dead Weather drop original master recordings (some live) this Thursday in the Rock Band Store. The big story here is the alternative rock supergroup The Dead Weather; their three pack will (almost) coincide with the band’s debut album Horehound.
