I've been gaming since I was just a wee lad but it wasn't until about 5-6 years ago that video games really started to grab ahold of me. Now, I play pretty much every day. I enjoy games from just about every genre, although fighting games and JRPG's have yet to really grab me. I'm a particular fan of on-line and co-op game modes, and I really enjoy the social aspects of those kinds of games. I'm always up for talking about games and technology so if you ever see me around, don't be afraid to strike up a conversation.
It seems like just last week that Zipper brought us a cool update… oh wait, it was. Regardless, they’re bringing another and it’s even bigger than the previous.
So what’s in this update and when does it go live?
It’s time for the North American PlayStation Store update again, and unlike last week, this one is packing some content… assuming you like PSone classics or are a PlayStation Plus Subscriber.
If you answered yes to PlayStation Plus, you’ll be very interested to see that there are three new free games that have been added to PlayStation Plus lineup – Critter Crunch, Syphon Filter and Kahoots.
Or if you’re one of the gamers that have been trolling the PlayStation Blog comments section demanding more PSone classics, you’ll be thrilled to see an unprecedented four new titles – Toy Story Racer, A Bugs Life, Hercules and The Emperor’s New Groove.
That’s a whole lot of Disney…
The original inFAMOUS is a game that we here at the Attitude Towers still consider one of the best the PlayStation 3 has to offer, so any time new details concerning its sequel surface, we can’t help but squeal like little school-girls and dance around the office. Actually, it’s pretty much only Whoelse that does that, but we’re still all pretty excited.
Zipper has been trying their hardest to continue giving players more reasons to keep coming back, and between new guns and armor as well as a new game-type, they’ve done a pretty good job.
Now, they’ve given us another reason to play what is literally the ‘biggest’ console shooter of all time.
The Assassin’s Creed franchise is held in very different regards depending on which gamer you ask. Some think the franchise isn’t worth a plug nickel, while others think it has been pure brilliance so far.
If you’re in the latter of that group, we’ve got some exciting new info along with a very stylish new trailer that’s bound to make you giddy.
If you took a chance and picked up Transformers: War for Cybertron, you may have already figured out what a lot of folks are saying: this is definitely a solid sleeper hit.
Today, we bring you reason to keep on playing.
EA Sports has long been known for putting out titles with great soundtracks. Some of their lineups have even helped push some lesser known bands to stardom.
Their NHL series has been no exception to this and EA looks poised and ready to deliver another solid audio offering this fall with the release of NHL 11.
Comic-con is upon us! You know what that means. Yep, thousands of smelly nerds all in one building. Oh yeah, and more info about some big games coming out soon.
Today we’re going to show you some sweet new Red Faction: Armageddon screens, and a new trailer packed so full of awesomeness your head might explode… seriously, wear a helmet to try and contain the mess.
A new Test Drive Unlimited 2 trailer has landed and we’re here to bring you all the rubber-burning glory.
Can’t get enough of that Medal of Honor beta? The word from EA/DICE is that you’re going to get some extra time to soak it in.
Fresh off the heals of the announcement that Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days would be coming out a week earlier than expected, we now have some new information about a demo that will be coming very soon.
How soon? Well that depends…
EA Sports is pretty regularly accused by the community of putting out the same American Football games year after year, just with different titles. If you’re one of those gamers that thinks EA is guilty of this, you’ll be able to see if that’s actually true later this month when the Madden NFL 11 demo is released.
So what will be included in this demo? That question requires a lengthy answer.
Mafia II has been a pretty hot topic these days. Between the release date being revealed and the E3 announcement that PS3 owners would be getting exclusive content, we’ve had all the reason in the world to be excited about this awesome looking sequel.
Today, we bring you even more reasons for excitement in the form of the exclusive PlayStation content finally being detailed, as well as some more DLC that will be available post-launch.
We’ve been talking about Singularity here at the Attitude Towers for quite some time. Since its reveal early last year, it’s been through a roller coaster of hype and publicity. In 2009, it seemed Activision was very eager to show this game off to any and all that would pay attention, but it the past 6 months or so the game seemed to fall off the face of the Earth.
Now, with little warning, it has finally hit shelves.
It’s not very often in the games industry that we hear about games being pushed forward. Games get delayed all the time, and it rarely comes a surprise to anyone. In fact, there are some games that are known for being delayed – we’re looking at you Gran Turismo.
Now, Square Enix is helping to break the mold.
We’ve known ever since E3 that Medal of Honor would be getting a limited edition for the PS3. Now, DICE has released a trailer about this alternate version of the game, but it’s not quite what we expected.
ModNation Racers has been out now for nearly 2 months, and while the game itself is great fun for the whole family, its campaign difficulty is not exactly for the faint of heart.
Thankfully the game’s developer, United Front Games, now has the solution.
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is a game that we first heard about last summer, and although information has been plentiful as of recently, the game’s developer, Ninja Theory, has given us reason to talk about it once more – another set of beautiful screenshots and a release date.
It wasn’t long ago that we announced H.A.W.X. 2, the sequel to Ubisoft’s dog-fighting air combat game. Now, the French-based studio has released a debut trailer for us to sink our teeth in to.
