London Gaming Con: Gamers descend on Islington for inaugural event

Need for Speed: The Run – The PS3 Attitude Review

False starts: the nitrous, coast-to-coast racer, Need for Speed: The Run has had a few. The first one happened at its unveiling at E3, when the debut trailer worryingly focused on the game’s, erm, innovative QTE-led cutscenes.

MonkeyPaw Games Interview: the lure of Japan, achievements and ambitions

It seems like every week MonkeyPaw Games is bringing a quirky Japanese wonder to the West. So far we have received straightforward ports of Japanese PSOne games — with language barriers and kids on magic hoovers intact — but the company stepped up to a new level this week with the release of BurgerTime World Tour, a complete reinvention of the 1982 meat-themed arcade game.

Japanese licensing: MonkeyPaw boss explains why it’s a challenge

Licensing problems. Throughout the nineties, we complained when Japanese titles never made it to stores near us despite taking the Fear East by storm. It got a bit better in the noughties, as our hobby grew in popularity, but the issue never completely disappeared.

Mad Catz leads the way as industry backs #Dolph10k

It’s safe to say our editor-in-chief DolphGB had one of those “really, honest, am I really doing this?” moments when he signed up for the UK’s toughest 10k obstacle course race. After all, he hadn’t willingly performed any exercise in over a decade, unless you count him twitching his thumbs on a DualShock pad.

What is GamesAid and why does it deserves your support?

Just in case you somehow missed our constant broadcasting, our editor-in-chief DolphGB is tackling the UK’s toughest 10k obstacle course, despite being inactive for several years. His run is this Saturday and we’re trying to raise as much money as possible for PS3 Attitude’s chosen charity, GamesAid.

We mention GamesAid regularly, but it’s been a while since we last explained what GamesAid does and why the charity deserves your money.

The Battlefield 3 launch trailer shows off Frostbyte 2′s superior ability to create impressive visuals, animations, tactical destruction, sound and scale.

That is, however, all stuff that we’ve seen before in previous trailers and gameplay footage. What makes this trailer interesting though is that it reveals fresh details about the singleplayer campaign.

Rage – the PS3 Attitude online review

Rage has given us one of our most enjoyable singleplayer experiences of the year, and we said as much in our in-depth review last week. This week, however, we’re focusing on multiplayer and trying to decide if Rage is as much fun with company as it is alone.
