Come join us once a week where we prove that our spare time isn’t entirely consumed by pounding away at a keyboard, but also by mashing the buttons of our DualShock 3s and Vitas. What …
Founded over ten years ago, London-based developer Playerthree has worked on more projects than we can ever hope to count. In October, the studio released puzzle game Loot the Land as part of the PlayStation Mobile launch, and last week saw the arrival of their first full PSN game, Chronovolt, exclusively on PS Vita. Luigi Fumero, Development Director at Playerthree, recently took some time to talk to PS3 Attitude about their games, PSM, PS Vita, and a hint at what’s to come.
Marvel Pinball tables have typically been about heroes versus villains; good against evil. The Civil War story arc throws that out the window and pits superheroes Captain America and Iron Man against each other in a heated battle over the introduction of the Superhuman Registration Act. This time around, it’s not about what mission to complete but more so about whose side you’re on…
There are at least a dozen titles for 5 Games That articles floating around PS3 Attitude at any one time, so this week we thought we’d dig out one of our more obscure (read: crazy) ideas. Specifically, with winter very nearly upon us, we’ve been discussing five videogame characters’ coats we’d like to wear during this coldest of seasons (yeah, told you it was obscure).
Since the launch of the PlayStation Vita, it has contended with a constant barrage of criticism, from analysts who simply cannot see a future for Sony’s latest handheld console. Indeed, in an age when consumers have become familiar with paying 59p for mobile games, encouraging them to spend £40 instead, albeit for a superior experience, is proving to be an uphill struggle.
PS3 Attitude has teamed up with GamerPrint to giveaway a pack of their unique video game Christmas cards featuring iconic gaming characters including Snake (Metal Gear Solid), GLaDOS (Portal), and Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet). Just in time for the holidays, these Christmas cards are the perfect gift for any gamer.
We’re giving away a pack of 10 Christmas cards designed by GamerPrint to one lucky reader. The winner will also be able to select any one of GamerPrint’s many video game posters (individual, not a full set) as an added bonus!
FuturLab, a small studio based in Brighton, was propelled to the forefront of independent game development in the UK, after the breakout success of their PS minis title, Velocity.
Since then, they’ve been one of PS3 Attitude’s favourite developers. We’re therefore delighted that James Marsden, founder and Managing Director of FuturLab, took some time to chat to us about their games, PlayStation Mobile, and what’s next for the studio.
Rockstar Games has released the much anticipated second trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. In the trailer, we get a good look at the games three playable characters; Michael, Trevor, and Franklin. In typical GTA fashion, there’s plenty of fast cars, gunfire, and “extracurricular activities” in Los Santos.
While some franchises simply refuse to go away, others seriously struggle to make the leap into multi-game territory. This can be for a number of reasons, but usually comes down to poor sales, regardless of how popular the game is among those who played it. This week, we’ve been discussing the likelihood of whether or not we’ll see a sequel to five of our favourite PS3 games.
Developed by Climax and Sony’s XDev studio, Smart As is a brand new puzzle game, most easily described as the Vita’s answer to Nintendo’s Brain Age series. Don’t hold that against it though, because Smart As is far more than a lazy clone of a six year old game. The title uses all the console’s features to create an experience that is only possible on Vita; but is it worth buying?
With just over a month since the release of PlayStation Mobile for Vita and PlayStation certified Android devices, PS3 Attitude took the opportunity to chat with Damien Cerri, Director at Beatnik Games, about Samurai Beatdown. We’re given the origins story of the developer as well as their launch PSM game.
In what can only be described as a genius move by the UK retailer, GAME has announced that they will soon be offering reward points for PSN Trophies and Xbox Achievements, as part of their newly revamped loyalty card scheme.
Portal 2 becomes digitally downloadable on 6 November, with an exlusive 30% off discount for PS Plus subscribers. Portal 2 In Motion DLC will also be available on 6 November for $9.99, and 30% off for Plus subscribers. Will this entice you to play Portal 2 on PS3 again?
Putting a monkey in a ball and rolling it across narrow, precarious platforms is a pretty cruel idea for a game, but gamers have struggled to resist Super Monkey Ball’s irresistible charms since it arrived way back in 2001.
To be honest, we’ve never really understood Halloween at PS3 Attitude. As they grow up, children are understandably told time and time again to never ever accept sweets from strangers. Oh, apart from on Halloween, that is, when this kind of behaviour is positively encouraged. Madness!
But we digress. Halloween is also a great excuse to play some of the scariest games on PS3, so we dare you to make it through as many of our chosen titles as you can.
In March, Journey saw thatgamecompany’s three-game deal with Sony come to an exceptional end; today, Sony makes way for a brand new three-game contract with another talented indie developer, Giant Sparrow. So the obvious question is; does the studio’s first game, The Unfinished Swan, have what it takes to compete with the best of the PlayStation Network?
PlayStation Mobile finally launched a few weeks ago, which offers developers a new opportunity to release their games on both PS Vita and selected Android devices. One of the service’s launch titles is Underline, a fast-paced word game from Albino Pixel.
PS3 Attitude recently talked with Dave Allanson, Technical Director of Albino Pixel, about his latest game, his thoughts on PlayStation Mobile, and future projects of the York-based studio.
Frustrated by your PS3’s inability to display PS Vita trophies? The good news is this will be coming to an end as of next week.
The trophy list will undergo a small shake up when System Update Version 4.30 arrives on Tuesday, 23 October. After the update, PS Vita trophies will be visible alongside PS3 trophies. The list will also move to reside under PlayStation Network on the XMB.
Maybe you’re subscribed to Rockstar Newswire, maybe not. Assuming you’re not, Rockstar has announced the Rockstar Games Collection Edition 1 is coming packed with four top selling current generation Rockstar games. Are there actually people out there that haven’t played these games?
