We’re extremely excited to announce today the launch of PS4 Attitude, the next generation of news, reviews and articles for PS4 and PS Vita. It’s an exciting new chapter for the team here at Attitude Towers, and we’re so happy to see it finally ‘in the wild’.
But what does that mean for PS3 Attitude? Let’s explain…
I’m getting ever so slightly bored of saying this now, but this week DolphGB has been playing The Last of Us and MitchJay92 has been playing Persona. Shocking! But never fear; beginning with Rayman Legends today, I predict you’ll see a lot of new games in PlayTime very soon, as we enter the busy pre-holiday season of videogame releases!
One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 follows Luffy and co. on an original adventure to The New World, and just like the anime, it’s over-the-top frantic fun with gorgeous animation.
Be prepared for some achey thumbs as we find out whether Pirate Warriors 2 is the game One Piece fans wanted.
With the PS3A team back together, it was business as usual this week; by which I mean DolphGB played The Last of Us and MitchJay played Persona 4 Golden. Being the less predictable members of the team, it was up to Majiesto and me to inject some diversity into this week’s PlayTime, which we achieved with Killzone: Mercenary, Bit.Trip Runner2, BioShock Infinite and Saints Row IV.
Sony has announced that the PlayStation 4 will launch on 15th November in North America and two weeks later, on 29th November, in Europe. The console will be arriving in 32 countries this year.
Sony’s PlayStation press conference for gamescom 2013 is set to begin in a few hours, and you can watch the livestream directly on PS3 Attitude. It’s set to begin at 6:00pm BST/7:00pm CET/ 10:00am PT/ 1:00pm ET and will last approximately three hours.
With MitchJay still on holiday, it was up to the rest of the PS3 Attitude team to make up for his lack of play time. This week, DolphGB continued his indiscretion with The Last of Us (I know, it’s getting a bit awkward now, isn’t it?), Majiesto finally completed his playthrough of the BioShock saga, and I became engrossed in an incredible little game called Gone Home.
This week, DolphGB forgot that any games exist other than The Last of Us, Majiesto finally reached Columbia in his mammoth playthrough of the BioShock series, I cried my eyes out after completing The Walking Dead (why, Telltale, why?!), and MitchJay92 went on holiday. Oh, and we’re not jealous of him, by the way. At all. Seriously. Well, maybe just a little bit.
With the latest game in the Tales Of series, we follow Milla and Jude on their journey to restore mana back to the world.
Boasting upgraded graphics, a more in-depth combat system, and series character designers Kosuke Fujishima and Mutsumi Inomata both working together for the first time on a single game, we look in to whether or not Xillia is the ultimate Tales Of title.
The Last of Us. Dishonored. BioShock 2. Assassin’s Creed III. Persona 4: Golden. Final Fantasy XIII. The Walking Dead. Rapala Fishing Frenzy 2009.
All but one of these games has been played by the PS3 Attitude team this week, so can you guess which is the imposter? (Seriously, it isn’t that difficult.)
Stealth Inc revolves around clones participating in tests for a manufacturer. It’s either complete the tests or be destroyed by turrets, lasers, robots and more.
You might be thinking, ‘Wow, sounds a bit like Portal!’ and while that’s true to a certain extent, it’s a bit more sadistic than any tests created by GlaDOS and Aperture. It may tickle your funny bone, but it may also crush it.
After seven weeks, The Last of Us has finally been dethroned from the top of the UK videogames chart, so I thought now was a good time for a retrospective look at my own personal experience with the game. This is the story of how my feelings towards Naughty Dog’s latest adventure went from scornful indifference to something not too far from reverence.
WARNING: The following article contains MAJOR spoilers for The Last of Us. Please only read if you have either completed the game or don’t mind the story being ruined.
Can you say ‘The Last of Us’? Whereas most new releases disappear from PS3A PlayTime after a few short weeks, Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic survival horror continues to come out on top. Also getting some love this week were Final Fantasy XIII, Saints Row: The Third, Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark, The Walking Dead and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward.
On Monday, David Cameron announced that 95% of UK households will have online pornography and other adult content blocked by default. Here’s why that is really bad news for everyone.
“It was time for my second PayDay. I remember The (original) Heist like it was yesterday. Others remember it too and while many looked upon it favourably, there were those that said we just hadn’t gone deep enough. It was time to move things forward. It was time to enter the rabbit hole.
Or in my case, The Tunnel…”
The London Anime Con is a bi-annual anime and gaming convention in the heart of downtown London. This year’s convention takes place next weekend on July 20-21 and has a massive schedule of events planned. For more details and to purchase tickets, you can visit the official website, http://www.londonanimecon.com.
We spoke with LAC Gaming Community Manager Jess Banks on what it’s like organising such a huge event.
Once again, The Last of Us has been at the very forefront of PS3 Attitude’s play time this week and, judging by its four weeks at the top of the UK videogame chart, we’re not the only ones. Also getting some action this week were quirky JRPG Time and Eternity, the surprisingly decent Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut, and great-looking racing sequel Grid 2.
As you could probably expect from the way the whole PS3 Attitude team raved about it last time, The Last of Us has been all over this week’s play time once again. It’s pretty rare for every PS3A team member to play the same game within a single week (in fact, we’re not sure if it’s ever happened before!), which just goes to show how incredible Naughty Dog’s epic really is.
One game in particular has been dominating the team’s play time this week. You can probably guess which title I’m talking about, but just for the sake of clarity: it’s The Last of Us… obviously. At a time when the industry is almost entirely focused on next-gen, it’s good to know we can always rely on Naughty Dog to remind us just how good PS3 gaming can get.
