My name is ryan. I love games more than anything in the world. Unless the person reading this is offended by that, in which case I put you slightly ahead of gaming my games.
Perhaps their isn’t a great new game to be had this week on the PlayStation Store but we do have access to a host of discounts on previously released downloads.
Some of the gems of this week’s harvest include Red Faction: Guerrilla and Mega Man 9 & 10.
Do any of these markdowns warrant your money?
This week the PlayStation store features a sale on a batch of games that may have gotten lost in the shuffle. If you have yet to pick up a game like Comet Crash (what is wrong with you?) then this is your week.
Take a gander inside. Is this the week that the game you’ve been waiting to buy gets a discount?
With all the hype and excitement surrounding Rockstar’s L.A. Noire it’s a wonder that we really don’t know much about the story.
Yes, we know the time period and the city and presumptions can be taken from there but we have not had much in the way of a concrete story arc.
Luckily we have a new trailer that sheds some light on the narrative behind Rockstar and Team Bondi’s action thriller. Take a look at the trailer and find out when you can expect to play it.
It appears that the unthinkable is upon us. Despite their finest efforts, the fates could not sufficiently bury Duke Nukem Forever.
It was practically 13 years ago that we first got the announcement that Duke Nukem Forever was in development, and now that development cycle is on the verge of completion.
In other news the city of Atlantis is alive and well and Elvis will be playing Caesar’s Palace later this year.
Some of us may have understandably written this game off but alas it has been dated. Find out when you can expect to get your hands on the infamous title.
For those of us that have been patiently waiting for news on the PS3’s revered shooter we’ve got new information regarding the multiplayer maps. Inside you’ll find every map available including the game types, special features and number of players.
Have a look at the arenas that you can look forward to killing your friends in.
Sega has seen fit to provide us with a new trailer introducing the team of playable characters that make up Yakuza 4.
How about you take a look? Or we’ll cut your finger off.
Developed by CyberConnect2 and Published by Capcom, Asura’s Wrath was first announced during last year’s Tokyo Games Show.
Asura is a formerly powerful and revered deity, emphasis on formerly. He’s been betrayed and thus is pissed beyond all reason. Those that stand in his way are to be lain to waste by a perfect storm of anger, fists, feet, weapons, and awesome hair.
Take a look at the newest trailer to get an idea of what Capcom is offering gamers with their new IP. As far as Capcom’s history of new ideas go will this one prove to be more Okami or Dark Void?
Mass Effect 2 may headline the releases this week but there is quite a bit of additional content hitting the store. PlayStation Plus members are getting their bi-weekly update to go along with a myriad of other downloads for all of us to enjoy.
There’s plenty to be had here people so let’s get to it.
Although the vast majority of Rockstar’s games involve very similar game play mechanics, the famed developer has managed to keep things fresh with a bevy of interesting characters and new environments.
Fight Night Champions is said to have a single player mode that is much different and deeper than anything that the franchise has previously shown. Although we may not yet have so much as a release date for the game, that does not prohibit us from taking a look at the progress to this point.
How is everything looking?
Every year the crack staff over at Guinness World Records updates the world on the esteemed accomplishments of humanity, and perhaps this will be the year that the creepy guy with long fingernails is surpassed by an equally creepy guy or gal with slightly longer fingernails.
The powers that be have also recently seen fit to expand their gaze to incorporate the feats of gamers. The ‘Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition’ chronicles everything from “best selling racing game” to “longest videogame marathon” (Mario Kart Wii and 50 hours of Red Dead Redemption respectively, in case you were wondering).
What records do SCEA and Guinness have in mind for LittleBigPlanet 2?
The outlook of 2011 is bright. PS3 owners will indeed be busy with a host of AAA titles set to explode onto the scene before we bid 2011 adieu. One of the first of these incendiary titles to release is Dead Space 2.
All of us that played the first game remember making our way through the USG Ishimura, eying the million vents, and shooting the appendages off of countless necromorphs. Today we are given a look inside Isaac Clarke’s next tour with the official Dead Space 2 launch trailer.
What does EA have in store for you this time that will keep you playing in daytime hours?
Addias. Nikre. Boreos. Knock-offs are a part of consumer based society. Company A creates a wonderfully successful product. Then another company, let’s just call them Company B (bet you didn’t see that coming) mimics said product virtually eliminating a large chunk of their development costs.
Of course this trend does not limit itself to expensive shoes and chocolate cookies. With the video games industry more viable than ever it is no surprise that more and more companies are throwing their hats into the ring to try to get a piece of the pie. Double metaphors aside, it is not surprising to see something like a Call To Duty or Need To Speed on store shelves. However, is it possible for a company to make a product that is too similar to its competitor’s?
As far as updates for the Playstation Store go this one falls somewhere in the range of forgettable and unnoticed.
There’s not much to be had in this weeks treasure trove of offerings. Hopefully this is just the calm before the storm. Those still going at it hard with Super Street Fighter IV will find a new costume pack available for a handful of fighters worth your while. Outside of that and the usual Rock Band and Guitar Hero updates there really isn’t much to get excited about.
Nevertheless we have poured through the list so that you can unearth any potential gems that may be to your liking. Happy hunting.
Sucker Punch has displayed some breathtaking trailers displaying the new setting, abilities and characters of the much anticipated follow-up. As it stands Cole himself has received a character model overhaul, only to have it scaled back to more similarly reflect the original.
While we will all have to wait and see if the development choices make for a great sequel, SCEA has released a fact sheet detailing the storyline as well as some key features that will make for an improved inFamous experience. So what exactly is Cole MacGrath up to?
