At its heart, Punisher: No Mercy is a simple title.
It uses old technology and older concepts yet brings something new to the cluttered FPS table by maximising a popular licence to its full potential while making no apologies for being a bargain shooter in a market literally swarming with them.
Is it the best looking FPS out there? Hardly. Does it push the PS3 in any way? Not in the slightest. Does it proffer a dense and rewarding levelling up system in its online mode? No. But is it a fast-past arcade styled Ã¼ber-violent fun-filled jaunt that offers amazing value for money? Undoubtedly.
In todayâ€™s world of entertainment, movies and video games go hand in hand like milk and cookies. Thatâ€™s why we would like to introduce to you a new feature entitled, â€œThe Reel Deal.â€ Weâ€™ll bring together the latest and greatest news that bridge the gap between video games and films.
Today weâ€™ll discuss the latest news regarding the Uncharted film, what Uwe Boll said about Alone in the Dark 5, and look at the release of films and their video game adaptations…
Cast your mind back to 2005.
We’re at E3 and Kudo Tsunoda is showing ‘real-time’ footage of what the PS3 is capable of doing for his Fight Night franchise. Of course, what is shown at E3 didn’t transpire when Fight Night Round 3 arrived on our beloved black monolith, raising questions of whether it was real-time after all.
Does Fight Night Round 4 finally deliver the realism we crave, as demonstrated four years ago?
Welcome to our first ever Search, Win, and Gloat Competition, also known as SWAG.
In our recent trip to visit a little expo named E3, we were able to get our hands on some goodies and what better thing to do than pass them on to our readers. Right? Of course!
Teaming up with our good friends over at Gamezine, PS3 Attitude had the opportunity to sit down and chew the fat with legendary Japanese director Hideki Kamiya.
Covering a wide range of topics from the game’s influences to Kamiya-san’s views on the afterlife, it’s the director’s comments regarding how Bayonetta compares to his other creations that piqued our interest.
Considering the designer’s impressive pedigree with titles such as the original Resident Evil and the ground-breaking Okami, his statement that Bayonetta is “the game we’ve always wanted to make” should convince the man’s many fans that we’re in for a real treat this fall.
We have had a few great moments at PS3 Attitude over the years, and this weekend we hit yet another milestone.
After jumping on the Twitter bandwagon very late, only starting to tweet on January 26th 2009, we hit the 1,000 follower mark just five months later.
We’ve had our own internal celebration (involving drinks and nibbles), so here’s our gift to you, the people who made it all possible.
The PlayStation Network looks set to expand across non-gaming devices in the near future, and it seems that Sony are looking for the PSN to play a part in helping provide a viable alternative to illegal downloads.
In a recent article by Fortune, extensively detailing the current executive strategies Sony are undertaking, you can clearly understand the importance of the PlayStation Network to the Japanese consumer electronics giant.
Let’s take a closer look at some of their recent statements.
With the recent news that Final Fantasy VII has reached 100,000 downloads from the US PlayStation Store within a fortnight, there was only one question that sprung to our collective mind.
Could a PSOne title from 1997 actually beat the likes of current-gen darlings such as Warhawk, GT5 Prologue and Ratchet & Clank?
There’s only one way to find out…
With 2009 now the latest edition in the beloved series, Virtua Tennis has been a stalwart sports sim on consoles since its emergence back on the Sega Dreamcast in 2000. Of course, a lot has changed since those heady days of 128-bit serving and volleying. With this generation’s near photo-realistic graphics, ubiquitous online options and numerous other advances in game-play and design, you’d expect Sega to serve up a vastly enhanced rendition of the popular title.
But have they? Looking at the amount of detail and copious game options available we’d have to say yes and there’s no doubt Virtua Tennis 2009 is a solid and enjoyable tennis sim. But, and there’s always a but, we just feel there is a lack of innovation in the perennial update that suggests that – though Sega have produced a great game for tennis fans – they may not necessarily have made a significantly new one.
It is Tuesday, and you know what that means, don’t you?
Yes, today and repeating every Tuesday, PS3 Attitude is becoming PSFree Attitude
As PS3 Attitude continues to grow as a site, it’s quite evident that we’re very much reliant on you, our dear readers, to keep us going.
For the uninitiated, each Tuesday we run PSFree Attitude, a weekly Twitter-based giveaway that sees us hide game and DLC codes for both the EU and NA PlayStation Store throughout the site and invite our Twitter followers to locate and redeem them before anyone else. It’s a fun way of interacting with you guys and we freely admit it’s designed to increase awareness of the site. That said, not everyone who comments on the site is following us on Twitter and are hence automatically excluded from winning. We feel it’s time to address this.
We here at PS3 Attitude love to give things away. We’ve had some awesome prizes in the past, including the sweet H.A.W.X game and flight stick prize package, and now we have ten Uncharted 2 multiplayer beta codes in our possession. Want to get in on the Drake on Drake shooting action? Here’s how…
June 2009 marks a historic moment for PS3 Attitude. It was the first of what we hope to be many E3’s to be covered live from the Los Angeles Convention Center. Over the course of four days, we would cover three different press conferences, multiple booth tours and live demos, and who know’s how many crossings from the South Hall to the West Hall, not to mention the meeting rooms upstairs. There were both ups and downs, good games and bad, but overall, it was an experience like no other.
Join us as we recap some of our favorite (and least favorite) moments of E3 2009 along with some never before seen pictures taken by yours truly…
The highly anticipated God of War III made is playable debut at E3 and we had a chance to sit down and play with Kratos in all his HD glory. What we demoed was an extended version of what was played at the Sony Press Conference. It is filled with the undead, huge monsters, and gods. It is the epitome of Kratos’ adventure and everything we have come to expect from Sony.
When the lights went down in the Shrine Auditorium we admit one simple thought crossed our minds: how are Sony going to top Microsoft’s killer presentation from the day before.
From the new NATAL technology to Milo to the Modern Warfare 2 timed exclusive content, we admit to thinking Sony were going to stumble and let us down a little.
How wrong we were. Sit back and forgive us the staccato nature of its presentation but here’s all the big announcements Jack Tretton and friends bestowed upon us at Sony’s 2009 E3 conference.
Ubisoft is sure to be a hit this E3. We have Assassin’s Creed 2 and Beyond Good and Evil 2 to look forward to. We’re here in downtown LA waiting for it to begin. Will we be seeing Jade Raymond on the stage today? We most certainly think so. So join us as we live blog the Ubisoft E3 09 Press Conference.
What Dark Energy have produced is not only an enjoyable pool simulator on the PS3 – admittedly a niche market – but what might be the first friendship killing game.
For when a game can incite a torrent of invectives from even the most timid of gamers – and they giddily come back for more – it’s a sign that Inferno Pool’s designers have tapped into the winning combination of something both equally fun and primal.
Speaking at a press event in London tonight, Sony Ericsson have revealed the AINO, a multimedia phone that has the PS3 Remote Play feature built-in.
Sporting a touch screen, a slide-out keypad and a stereo Bluetooth headset, the AINO is one of three new phones that fit into Sony Ericsson’s new ‘Communication Entertainment’ strategy.
It’s finally here boys and girls from Europe, Australia and New Zealand! The European PlayStation Blog went live today replacing the excellent and much-loved ‘semi-official’ ThreeSpeech.
The North American blog first hit the internet back in 2007 and now we have a fully licenced European counter-part.
So what can we expect from the blog?
