Welcome back to the second part of our interview with Ollie Clarke, head honcho of the team behind upcoming PSN title Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao.
Last time, we has a natter about the game, demo and development process.
This time, we’re focusing on the 3D aspect of the game that makes it so unique.
That and we threw in a few curve ball questions to keep Ollie on his toes…
We revealed recently that upcoming PSN title, Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao would last about the same as a DVD movie plus extras.
We discovered this during an extensive interview with the brain behind the game, Ollie Clarke. The Blitz Arcade Animator took time to get strapped into our examination chair and get hooked up to our lie detector while we quizzed him about his title and all things game-related.
So without further ado…
Featured in the latest edition of Japanese publication Famitsu, and then reported over at Kotaku, a we-saw-it-coming sequel to Level-5’s Shirokishi Monogatari (White Knight Chronicles to us gaijin) is in the works.
Modern Warfare 2 is going to be big, there’s no doubt about it. Not only will gamers be able to get their hands on some awesome night vision goggles but just take a look at the following footage from the multiplayer mode. To describe this in a single word, we’d go with ‘amazing!’
The footage introduces AC130 killstreak reward, which allows you to become the gunner of an AC130 gunship and reign chaos from above.
LucasArts have announced that Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will see further expansion this Autumn through a new downloadable level that promises to take the story in a new direction.
In addition, they also announced Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, a special new version of the game that will show gamers the deepest, darkest side of the Force in a story that puts them on a collision course with Luke Skywalker himself.
The Ultimate Sith Edition will include all of the original missions found in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as well as content previously only available via download and an all-new exclusive bonus level.
As is our want here at PS3 Attitude, we like to get involved with the politics of gaming every now and then.
On reading the report that Nathan Hartley, an 18-year-old from Maryland in the United States had been sentenced to seven years in prison for an act we’d never heard of before – ‘door-checking’ – what sparked our interest was the insistence that this activity is an integral part of Grand Theft Auto.
But rather than tow the sensationalist line, we asked the prosecutor in this case, John Mark McDonald, what really happened and why GTA was even brought into this courtroom, since we don’t remember seeing this activity in the game at all.
Castle Crashers has been a bit of a ‘diamond in the rough’ on Xbox Live Arcade since it became available for download last August.
The game, best described as a 2D sideways scrolling brawler, has even managed minor cult status, along with the obligatory ‘fan art’ movement, thanks to the quirky art style and characters.
Now, Castle Crashers is coming to the PSN and if you’re in San Diego at Comic-con, you can get your hands on the game at the event.
We’re always striving to provide you, our gracious readers, with the best features and tools here at PS3 Attitude, and we hope the latest changes we’ve made will be to your liking.
In one of our biggest updates for some time, we’ve added new commenting features, a great new login system and various other cool additions.
If sauntering around gay Paris is more to your liking than the dusty bleakness of Martian territory, you’ll be happy to hear that Pandemic’s tale of vengeance in Nazi-occupied France, The Saboteur, will hit stores on December 4th.
And we’ve got a new screenshot as well.
Though still not officially coming to the PS3, yesterday marked a particular milestone in the constantly evolving landscape of gaming.
It wasn’t a grandiose statement, a price-cut or yet another exclusive jumping from one console to the other; in fact, if anything, it was almost underplayed.
During a twenty minute presentation from Dave Jones at Develop09 on the upcoming crime-caper APB, we witnessed a game that could potentially revolutionise how we play games in the future – and on what hardware.
Speaking at the Develop Conference today, Jonathan Smith of TT Games demonstrated the new killer feature coming to Lego Indiana Jones 2, a complete level creation suite.
Demonstrating these game building abilities live to a packed auditorium, Jonathan was able to build a playable Lego space in just a few seconds.
David Jones of Realtime Worlds gave a keynote speech at the Develop Conference this morning in Brighton, UK.
During the impressive speech, he showed the technology behind their forthcoming title, APB. This open world ‘cops and robbers’ game looks impressive, as is the server-based technology behind it.
But the question on our lips was the most obvious – could this PC-based MMO come to the PS3?
A prequel to 2006’s Call of Juarez, Techland returns to the Old West with the sanguine “Bound in Blood”, a sub-title that not only suggests the connotations of some violent escapades ahead, but the binds of family that hold us together.
As a genre, the Western has done quite well in gaming – something of a paradox considering typical fans of the setting are as likely to pick up a controller as your average gamer is to chew tobacco.
From Red Dead Revolver to the first Call of Juarez, games featuring amoral outlaws, big hats and bigger body counts are proving popular with gamers of all ages – leaving us to think maybe there’s a little cowboy in all of us just dying to get out.
iTrophies is a handy PS3 trophy app for the iPhone/iTouch every self-respecting Trophy Whore must own.
Noticing a niche in the market, developer Viru has created an app that not only allows you to review your own trophy progress, but also compare your current haul with that of your friends whether you’re on the bus, at work or jet-setting around the world. Connection permitting of course.
Hailing from the Arcade wing of Blitz Games, Droplitz is a charming and addictive puzzler anyone who enjoys twiddling dials and bringing order to chaos will enjoy.
Like most puzzle games, the concept is amazingly simple in principle yet devilishly difficult in practice.
Today we travel back to Hell again with Dante in this new trailer from the folks at EA. Watch as he uses Death’s Scythe and his cross to destroy the creatures of the damned. He looks a lot like Kratos to us with the way he swings from place to place and slices the surrounding enemies. Thankfully, that isn’t a bad thing.
Sitting down with GameIndustry.biz’s Phil Elliott, Media Molecule founder Alex Evans has reminisced about the wild ride of turning LittleBIGPlanet from an ambitious indie title that wanted to break all the rules to a system selling rainmaker on which Sony placed a great deal of expectation.
Alex also expresses his thoughts on the future of the franchise and, more importantly, what to do with all the existing content when the inevitable sequel comes along.
Midway’s Ed Boon has revealed through his Twitter account that upcoming plans for Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe DLC have been shelved.
A popular way for companies to wrangle some extra coin out of existing properties, it comes as a little surprise that characters suspiciously missing from the launched game – and “just about done” according to the co-creator – will now not be made available by the cash-strapped studio.
Unlike the recently reviewed Fight Night Round 4, EA Sports’ Tiger Woods franchise is one of those that the publishing behemoth tends to bring around once a year.
Some years the franchise is improved, whilst other times you can actually hear sighs across the country as consumers realise they’ve been duped into spending their hard-earned cash on nothing more than the same game with different clothes.
So, with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, which is it to be? A classic year, and one for the golfing connoisseurs amongst you, or will it be like matching a new set of clubs with the same old tired swing?
