Why WipEout looks better on Vita

Two things sped through my mind faster than a Pirahna while playing WipEout HD tracks on PS Vita against a PS3 player: (1) the crossplay worked perfectly, with no noticeable lag or advantage for one format over the other; and (2) it looked much better on the portable.

WipEout Interview: singleplayer and multiplayer campaigns explained

Back in November, at a PlayStation Access event in London, I sat down to discuss the high-velocity anti-gravity racer WipEout 2048 with its lead designer Karl Jones. Over a loud backdrop of New Order and Primal Scream, he took me through the singleplayer and multiplayer campaigns, showing me the exciting things Studio Liverpool has been working on for this Vita title.

Netflix launches in UK; Lovefilm responds with cheaper contract

You probably spotted the Netflix logo on your XMB this week. Well. The service went live today, and in doing so it introduced some much needed competition to the UK streaming market. Do you need proof? Just look at the reaction of rival LOVEFiLM, who responded to the launch with a new cheaper contract of its own.

The hottest PS3 games of 2012 – part 2

We’ve moved on from 2011, but what a fine year it was. It was a year packed with many highlights: Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Portal 2, Skyrim, L.A. Noire and Uncharted 3 and Batman: Arkham City, to name just a few.

But we now turn our collective eyes towards the gems 2012 will bestow on us, and it looks set to be another fantastic year.

L.A. Noire | Writer’s GOTY

L.A. Noire | Writer’s GOTY

I’m staring apologetically at my copy of Uncharted 3 as I begin writing this game of the year piece. It’s because it isn’t my game of the year, despite it being the best attempt yet to tie cinematic action with great gameplay and an emotional story. It is a sensational game, and it probably should be the game of the year.

I’ve gone for L.A. Noire instead though, and I’ll briefly explain why. At about this time last year, I decided I wanted something different in 2011. Don’t get me wrong, I looked forward to the big sequels and blockbuster action games as much as the next person did; however, I hoped for something more mature and thoughtful. I wanted a game that dares to be different. I wanted the next Heavy Rain, essentially.

Carnival Island – The PS3 Attitude Review

It’s easy to be sniffy about Magic Pixel Games’ Move-using Carnival Island. Hey, I like to play hardcore games aimed at adults, and this is clearly not one of those. It’s also been so long since I was of the age that would — in theory — appreciate this, it’s hard to give a proper judgement without sounding patronising. So, now we’ve got that disclaimer out the way, let’s get on with the review.

The Last of Us: unravelling the new hottest game in the world

The cryptic unveiling of The Last of Us last week piqued our interest. It wasn’t so much the news of an upcoming game that got us thinking, or even the fact it’s a PS3 exclusive; it was more the tease from Spike TV host Geoff Keighley that it’s being developed by an “amazing developer”.
