I have been an avid gamer since I learned how to hold a controller. My favorite games include Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Mega Man, Ratchet & Clank, Resident Evil; the list could probably go on forever. I am also a big movie and television junkie.

Journey is a game that has been on everybody’s radar since it was announced way back at E3 2010 by thatgamecompany. Since then we’ve seen plenty of screenshots and gameplay videos and have even had the opportunity to play the game in its closed beta most recently. Even so, there is still a lot of mystery surrounding the title, one of which being its release date.

On the first day of Eurogamer Expo 2011, thousands of gamers packed into Earls Court to sample the biggest upcoming games and listen to some of the biggest developers in the world.

Here are some thoughts from today’s conferences.
THQ has announced today that award winning studio Crytek will be developing the next installment of the commercially successful Homefront franchise.

The WipEout series has been a PlayStation stable since its initial release in 1995 and has appeared on every platform in some form. Released in 2008, WipEout HD marked the series’ debut on the PS3 with 1080p graphics, 60 frames per second visuals, and 5.1 surround sound. In essence, it was one of the biggest downloadable titles at its time, with a $19.99 price tag to prove it.
It was worth every penny though as the game featured five game modes, online play, split screen multiplayer and an optional SIXAXIS control scheme. For these reasons and more, WipEout HD is #3 on PS3 Attitude’s Top 20 PSN titles.

When it comes to pinball games, Zen Studios is the champion. First the development studio brought us creative tables that delved into the depths of our imagination with Zen Pinball. What originally started as four tables soon evolved to 11, including tribute tables to popular franchises such as Street Fighter and Ninja Gaiden.
Then in 2010, they kicked it up a notch and released Marvel Pinball; a collection of tables devoted solely to our favorite superheroes. Who doesn’t like Blade, Iron Man, Spider-Man and Wolverine? Marvel Pinball essentially revitalized the pinball genre and brought it to a whole new audience.
For this reason, we have selected Marvel Pinball as our #14 pick in PS3 Attitude’s Top 20 PSN titles.

Don’t worry if you’re not a PS+ member as there is still plenty of content available for download. Rayne is back in an all new vampire adventure with Bloodrayne: Betrayal. There’s also the God of War: Origins demo for you to try out. See below for the full list of content.

As a reward for our dedication to decapitation, Housemarque has announced that the studio is busy developing a new chapter for Dead Nation called Road to Devastation.

While zombies and a haunted village are good and all, they pale in comparison to knights in shining armor, four knights as a matter of fact. Castle Crashers invaded the PlayStation Network nearly two years after their Xbox 360 counterpart but it was definitely worth the wait for fans The Behemoth.
