Huge hulking supersoldier. Ace spacecraft Pilot. Ass-kicking female parkour expert. These are things I am not. Not in real life, at least. In the digital age, however, things are different. I command legions, leap between buildings and kick seven shades out of any oncomer. Sometimes. Games are the Yin to the Yang that is my daily grind of a job. I get to release all my stress and catch up with near and distant friends. And best of all, I get to inflict my opinions on all things game on people I don't know. Some people even like what I say. Result!
In just a few short weeks, we are going to have one of the biggest E3’s in quite some time. Sony are limbering up for a showdown of epic proportions, and doubtless the competition are taking a similar stance.
What do we reckon is lurking up the longest sleeves of the highest SCE bigwig?
Once more on our post-Saturday-night recovery day, known in some circles as “Sunday”, we take a look back at a week in Twitter. See what we have been chirping about all week and add your own tuneful melody into the mix if you feel so inclined..
we were doing the rounds and came across this trailer for the upcoming game, due for release at the tail-end of 2010. Not only that, but there are even some new screen shots available. So how is the game coming along?
It’s that time of the week once again where we delve into the tuneful tweets floating about the interwebs.
Brodiesan is a fan of BZB, the new chat feature censorship gets… weird and we praise the lord of sensible currency conversion. Confused? So were we for a while…
There is a new video fresh out of the Nobilis vaults showing off the classes in the new game, Trine. Not only that, the trailer also shows off some of the ways the three classes can help each other out in the co-op mode. Don’t believe us? Go see for yourself, then.
A new update for SingStar hits today. Expect downtime and a download of unknown size. It will take your cruddy old version of SingStar and update it to the shiniest version, 3.01! Hurrah!… But what does it actually do?
Fancy getting a new toy? If you are laughing in the face of the current economy, you might just be able to afford The Evo – a seriously kitted-out arcade monster. Check out the built-in HDTV, dual joysticks and funky finish after the jump.
New screens for Under Siege. Looking good, in our opinion. Go see, then let us know if you agree! After all, the game could be shaping up to be a nice little player.
Another week, another Twitter-fest for your delectation.
Within the pages of our Twitter Digest you’ll find all sorts of random musings, great people to follow and web links that will give you something else to do …
At the MI6 Games Marketing Summit in San Francisco yesterday, SCEA’s John Koller dropped a small bombshell when the question of Facebook integration came up. On the subject of PS3 being able to ‘spit out something to Facebook’, Koller responded with a rather interesting comment…
The upcoming game ‘Six Days In Fallujah’ is in the middle of its own war, with many calling for a ban on the game before it has even been released. We try to look at the game’s merits and missteps without the effect of the swarming haters. What did we make of it all?
There’s a new Red Faction: Guerilla trailer out. With a great section showcasing the destructible scenery, there’s a lot about RF:D to look forward to come release date, but the trailer has left us with some concerns…
The DLC for RE5 was announced a short while ago, and caused a decided uproar. With the game now out and receiving pretty decent reviews, Capcom have updated us with some salient points about the new Mode. Namely price and date. But has the public backlash doomed the add-on to failure before it even hits the Store?
Lookie! Lookie! Lookie! A super-secret new creature to be found marauding around the grassy plains of Capcom’s upcoming PSN game Flock! There’s even a video to prove it!
System 3, the publisher behind the upcoming racer SuperCar Challenge, have told the info-hungry masses that theÂ online beta trial has begun.
This news might not seem really all that important, considering that we have all seen …
Once again, it’s that time of the week where we take a look at the twitter readouts and share the siesmic activity on the feed.
More Killzone clan details, visitor numbers and April Fool industry jokes are all present and correct. The ‘big’ announcement this week was for the PS2 price drop. We tweeted about it. A bit.
In other stories, we suspect some of the team are getting a bit too much Killzone, with news of nightmares and trophy hunting. Speaking of trophies, it seems as though certain trophies are massively under-rewarding. A bronze trophy after hours of work? Hmmm…
Brutal Legend, EA’s upcoming game featuring the voice of Jack Black as a Rock Metal roadie, is looking great. Thrown back in time to help the innocent and vanquish the evil through the use of power chords, lightening and fire-breathing boars (seriously!), players will see an alternate history unlikely to be found elsewhere. How good does it look? See for yourself…
Saw is being brought to the PS3 by Konami. While not a vast amount is known about the game so far, we have managed to get hold of some in-game shots along with a concept image. Could this be another one of the few great game/film tie-ins?
In the interests of science (or more accurately, vocal destruction) we took up both our microphones and the challenge, and proceeded to sing to every song on the disc.
Here we write about our highs, lows and this author’s bout of ‘razor throat’ somewhere around the middle ‘C’.
