Heavy Rain – The PS3 Attitude Review

Heavy Rain.

Just those two simple words have caused ripples across the gaming community since footage of a ‘casting call’ at E3 2006 became the talking point of the event.

Is this finally a game that can deal with adult themes in an effective and affective way?

Exclusive: No Fuss Reviews donate over £4,000 to charity

Exclusive: No Fuss Reviews donate over £4,000 to charity

Founded in February of 2008, No Fuss Reviews was created by Matthew Riches from the quaint town of Ipswich, UK with the sole aim of providing quick score-only reviews. The idea was born after much frustration from other bloated advert heavy video game websites and how difficult it was sometimes to simply see a score out of 10 for any given game.

As you may know, we at Attitude Towers also take a different view on reviews and review scores, so we’ve watched No Fuss Review with some interest, but the best news is yet to come.

Living with the PS Video Store – The PS3 Attitude Review

Living with the PS Video Store – The PS3 Attitude Review

The PlayStation Video Store first came to our attention back at E3 2008, when it was simultaneously announced and launched during the Sony press conference.

It took until November 2009 for the Video Store to hit European shores, so we decided to take it for a little more than the usual test drive and see if we could live on just the Video Store for our movie viewing needs for a month.

Here’s the story of what happened…

MAG – The PS3 Attitude (p)Review

MAG – The PS3 Attitude (p)Review

Last week, as many of you following the #MAG256 tag on Twitter will know (and if you’re not following @PS3Attitude, now would be a good time to do so), we and 127 other gamers were invited to try out MAG.

A mixture of journalists and community members battled it out through the day, leading up to a 256-player match against Zipper, the developers behind the new FPS on the block.

Whilst we received our review copy of the game the very next day, the servers to allow play weren’t switched on at the time, so we have decided to do something a little different with our MAG review.

Raise a glass to four new writers

We’re an ever-expanding team here at PS3 Attitude, and today we’d like to share the news that four new writers are joining the team.

Volunteering to write in order that we can help generate as much charity money as possible in 2010 (and beyond), these four intrepid souls will be brightening your day with PlayStation news, views, reviews and interviews alongside our existing team of Staff Writers.

Okami sculpture makes us wish we had talent

Twitter is a wonderful thing.

Within the tweets of our feed you get to read all sorts of ‘behind-the-scenes’ info, enter exclusive competitions and read random goodness. Heck, you can even follow various members of the PS3 Attitude team too, finding out what makes them tick.

Some of us check out each and every one of our followers to find out more about the people that read PS3 Attitude, and it was during a recent ‘catch up’ session that we found the most brilliant sculpture we’ve seen in a long time.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas…

PS3 Attitude will be taking a break from providing you, our dear readers, with the latest PS3 news and articles for the next few days.

Whilst the team will no doubt get bored with their presents and put up a story or two, the official line is that we’ll be away on the 25th through to and including the 28th December, and we’ll fall silent once again on the 1st January (just for a day).

But before we go, we’ve got something to tell you…

Assassin’s Creed II – The PS3 Attitude Review

Assassin’s Creed II – The PS3 Attitude Review

Assassin’s Creed was an interesting game for so many reasons.

Whether it was the incessant hype machine that rolled into every town, the column inches gained by the (mostly) bulletproof Jade Raymond, the promise of new and interesting game mechanics or the simple fact that it was the second fastest selling brand-new IP in video game history, everything that surrounded the game was intriguing.

Ultimately, however, the game itself didn’t deliver fully on all these promises and was labelled ‘repetitive and monotonous’ by many. So how has the sequel, backed up by a much lower-key but more focused marketing offensive, measured up?

Today, the world’s #1 ranked PS3 CoD4 Pro Gamer, Dennis ‘zDD’ Dozier, gives us a two part review of both Modern Warfare 2 and the new SplitFish FragFX Pro controller.

Confirmed: Sony lay off 80 contingent testers in Foster City

Over the last two months, a number of people working at the Foster City First Party Quality Assurance have known they are living on borrowed time as SCEA look to consolidate their team.

The news that 30 full time positions were to be axed broke recently as Patrick Seybold confirmed the strategic plans for the region, but the contract position losses were unclear. PS3 Attitude can now reveal, thanks to an inside source, the extent of the cuts.

Dante’s Inferno ‘the Animatrix edition’ arrives in 2010

Dante’s Inferno will be getting the ‘reverse movie tie-in’ treatment in February 2010 with the release of Dante’s Inferno: The Animated Movie.

Following the critical success of Dead Space: Downfall, also released by Film Roman in association with EA, this DVD and Blu-ray movie release already reminds us of another project from back in 2003.

And trust us, that is no bad thing.

Live Twitter interview with Dylan Cuthbert [UPDATE]

Live Twitter interview with Dylan Cuthbert [UPDATE]

Dylan Cuthbert first came to this writer’s attention back before the PlayStation 3 was even an electrical impulse in the mind of Ken Katuragi.

Dropping out of school at 16 years of age to join Jez San’s Argonaut Software, he became one of the leading lights behind 3D gaming as we know it today. After spells with Nintendo and Sony, Dylan went on to found his own company – Q-Games – which has had success in 2D gaming, rather than the three dimensions Dylan made his name with.

On Tuesday this week, Dylan will speak to PS3 Attitude in our first ever live Twitter interview…
