If you bet that this week Majiesto has been playing Soul Sacrifice, MitchJay92 has been playing every Persona game ever made, and I’ve been playing BioShock Infinite and Final Fantasy XIII, then I have very good news: you win! Yes, like the ever-predictable people that we are, we’ve been playing those same games yet again. But there’s always next week, right?
Persona 4 Arena sees characters from Persona 4 and 3 return in a crossover fighting title to solve the case of the returning Midnight Channel, the place where the events of Persona 4 took place. With the return of the Investigation Team from P4, several characters from P3 and Arc System Works’ ability to make an in-depth and immersive fighter, can P4 Arena compete with the best of its genre?
This week, PS3 Attitude heard from upcoming games Diablo III, Killer Is Dead, Persona 4: Arena, and a little-known title called something like Grand Theft Auto V. We also saw the formation of a new studio in France, and posted our definitive review of the superb indie platformer Thomas Was Alone.
Zen United has released a story teaser trailer for Persona 4 Arena which is finally releasing in Europe on 10th May, roughly a year after it was available in Japan and North America. Featuring a story canon to both Persona 3 and 4, fans can catch up with their favourite characters as they delve in to a new adventure.
The inventive puzzle-platformer Thomas Was Alone has been described by its creator, Mike Bithell, as ‘a game about rectangles and friendship’. However, as you may have guessed from the somewhat melancholy title, there’s a lot more going on here than that.
Terraria, the previously PC exclusive hit which arrived on the North American PlayStation Store a couple of months ago, has finally received a European release date so that we can enjoy it alongside our NA relatives on PSN. Sadly, the Vita won’t be seeing any of this action until later this Summer.
Rockstar Games have released a new trailer for Grand Theft Auto V, or should I say three new trailers showcasing the game’s three main playable characters; Michael, Franklin, and Trevor.
Jazz. Kisses. Gigolo glasses. What do they all have in common? They’re all featured in wacky, upcoming hack & slash title Killer is Dead.
Developer Grasshopper Manufacture aren’t new to excess blood, animated graphics and iconic women as made evident by their previous works including No More Heroes and Lollipop Chainsaw. All of which come from the creative mind of Goichi Suda, more commonly known as Suda 51.
With a game like Diablo 3 in-game experience points are important and are necessary to progress onward same as with most games within the RPG bracket. Blizzard seem to be aware of this and are offering a XP-boosting Infernal Helm to anybody who pre-orders Diablo on the PS3, and we assume, the PS4.
We know you won’t believe it, but this week there’s been a massive shakeup and we’ve all been playing completely new games that haven’t been featured in PlayTime ever before! Oh, actually scratch that; on closer inspection, it looks like we’ve all been playing exactly the same games that we played last week. It’s an easy mistake to make – sorry about that.
Newly formed independent game development studio Seaven Studio have revealed their debut title with a short 30 second trailer.
It’s been a pretty quiet week in the industry, with no major releases or announcements. Even so, we still got some interesting titbits of info, including a US release date for obscure JRPG Dragon’s Crown, and the news that PS Move survival horror Until Dawn has added DualShock 3 controls (probably a good thing).
Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil: Revelations, a HD remaster of a 3DS title of the same name, will grace us with a demo before the game is officially released.
Japan already has access to the demo and the worldwide release date has not been announced yet.
Skyrim, one of 2011′s highest-rating titles, is receiving a Legendary Edition which will contain both the full game, all released DLC and some extra features available through patches.
Bethesda aren’t new to the idea of releasing ultimate editions of their games a while after release, and so those who had the patience to wait will finally be rewarded in the form of saving money.
Dragon’s Crown, the latest title from Japanese developer Vanillaware, finally has a release date. It releases in Japan on 25th July and in North America on 6th August but sadly, there is currently no confirmed date for when the well-endowed title will hit European shores.
It is Sony exclusive and will be available on both PS3 and Vita.
Until Dawn, an upcoming game from developer Supermassive Games, was announced as a PlayStation Move exclusive title in, what we assume, was an attempt to sell more Move controllers by introducing an immersive horror experience exclusive to the motion controller.
A recent packshot indicates that you will now be able to use your DualShock to play the game, rather than requiring that you purchase additional equipment.
This week, DolphGB got sucked even further into the intriguing world of Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, Majiesto prepared himself for the arrival of Soul Sacrifice on PS Vita with its super-sized demo, MitchJay92 realised that Persona isn’t the only videogame franchise that exists, and I took a trip into the clouds with the incredible BioShock Infinite.
Konami has announced the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection in celebration of the franchise’s 25th anniversary.
Exclusive to the PlayStation 3, the collection will include Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions, and Metal Gear Solid 4: Trophy Edition. If that wasn’t enough, it will also include two digital graphic novels from illustrator Ashley Wood.
Namco Bandai Games has released a new “making of” video for Star Trek: The Video Game that discusses its story and how it’s integral to the Star Trek cannon.
Star Trek: The Video Game takes place after 2009′s Star Trek reboot and before the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness. The story follows Captain Kirk and Spock as they investigate a Vulcan distress signal. Marianne Krawczyk, one of the writers involved with the the God of War Trilogy, is authoring this brand new adventure for the Starship Enterprise.
