If you want early access to THQ’s Red Faction: Guerrilla demo you no longer need to pay a stipend to the Qore or even do questionable acts in back alleys and truck stop bathrooms. If you live in Europe that is.
THQ is giving myTHQ Europe members early access to the Red Faction: Guerrilla demo via their website. If you are not a myTHQ member you can sign up for free and get exclusive access to “cool things like this Red Faction: Guerrilla demo.” Will there be other cool things besides the demo?
While typing up our Burn Zombie Burn! interview with Jim Mummery, Creative Director at Doublesix, we locked on to the following nugget and, as a preview to the actual interview that will be up tomorrow, thought you would like an early free glimpse of what’s coming.
For those anticipating some online co-op DLC for the game – prepare to be disappointed.
Speaking of self-imposed banishments, the PS3 Attitude team have returned from exile and are ready to continue delivering all the best PS3 related news we can shake our vagabond hands at.
Definitely the most important story to hit the tubes over the spring break, Guerrilla Games have announced details of Killzone 2′s first DLC pack. We told you it was coming, but just what does it contain?
The upcoming game ‘Six Days In Fallujah’ is in the middle of its own war, with many calling for a ban on the game before it has even been released. We try to look at the game’s merits and missteps without the effect of the swarming haters. What did we make of it all?
We just received word that ThreeSpeech, the semi-official UK/EU PlayStation 3 blog, will be closing their doors on April 17th.
The change is to make way for a new EU Official PS Blog along the lines of the much-lauded US site, and whilst we love that site with a passion it is sad to see ThreeSpeech moving on…
After months of speculation, endless hours of heated debate and innumerable arguments both for and against the concept of Assassin’s Creed leaving the setting of the Holy Land (not to mention the odd fiery flag discussion), the teaser of the sequel arrives and … we get nothing.
That’s not entirely true of course, as what we do get is a (mostly empty) new site along with some intriguing footage that lends some credence of Altair (or maybe the Son of Altair) moving out of the dust bowl of Jerusalem next time around.
PSU got their hands on the first proper trailer for Data-Fly, the Origo Games title that was heavily teased last month.
Origo also launched a teaser website in March with a countdown clock that is due to end at midnight (UK time) tonight, so this is a likely precursor to other Data-Fly announcements and media.
Whatever information Origo continue to release over the next day, we can’t deny the game is looking very intriguing…
It has been a long time since our last PS3-related April Fools Roundup – a year to be precise!
Back then we brought your attention to a console version of World of Warcraft, motorbikes in GT5: Prologue and a $150 PS3 that has no Blu-ray drive.
What foolishness did we uncover today?
In the interests of science (or more accurately, vocal destruction) we took up both our microphones and the challenge, and proceeded to sing to every song on the disc.
Here we write about our highs, lows and this author’s bout of ‘razor throat’ somewhere around the middle ‘C’.
Sony has registered a trademark on the term â€˜PS Cloudâ€™ for use with a cloud computer network on PlayStation products.
Little other information is given, but the unannounced service could offer a number of opportunities.
Every year at GDC a poker tournament is held in aid of charity, and this year was no exception.
According to the event host, ISM Agency, the poker tournament raised $17,000 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Budding gun and game design enthusiasts should take special notice of Insomniac’s new Weapons Contest mentioned over at the official PS blog.
The premise is simple. Design a fresh and exciting new weapon that you believe absolutely must be part of Ratchet’s arsenal in his next adventure through time and, not only will they make a life sized replica of the piece, the winning contestant will also enjoy a a place in gaming history with their weapon actually featuring in A Crack in Time.
Sony bashing across the net surged back to its usual level of noise and enmity with the news last week that, since October, Sony have been asking publishers to foot the bill of consumers downloading their content from the PSN.
It looks like Sony aren’t as crazy as we thought they were (ed: isn’t that usually the case?) with the company’s announcement of their new “Pub Fund”.
How does it work? Well, take your budget for that new digitally distributed game you’ve been so diligently working on. If you decide to release it only on the PSN, Sony will match it.
It was red carpet and beard combing time over at San Francisco last night as the luminaries of the gaming industry gathered together to slap their peers on the back and tell each other: “Your game rocked! No, YOUR game rocked!”
The fact is: a lot of games rocked last year so this was always going to be a tight contest.
There are no two ways about it. The Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas X is big. Really big.
Having a sizeable peripheral could be seen as a boon or a millstone. If size is important to you, if lengthy and vaguely pornographic product names appeal and if having something substantial in both your hands when you play is important, you’re going to love the T.Flight Hotas X.
Thankfully, those aren’t the only things going for this mammoth device…
Mention ‘survival horror’ and what is the first thing that comes to mind?
For most video game enthusiasts, that would be ‘Resident Evil’. The fifth installment, although technically the seventh in the main series, has garnered a lot of heat from issues of racism to the exclusion of ‘run-and-gun’ controls.
With the highly successful Resident Evil 4 bringing the series to a new level, can 5 live up to its predecessor whilst remaining fresh and new?
It appears that Tecmo are returning to the Sigma well with news appearing today that Ninja Gaiden 2 will be getting the “re-imagining” treatment akin to its predecessor.
Itagaki-san may be no longer with the company (not that he’d touch a PS3 version) but it does raise some interesting questions about the content of the game.
Considering Microsoft published the sequel on the 360, just how much of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 will be a port of the original and how much will be a total remake?
The LittleBigPlanet adventure shows no sign of stopping anytime soon.
Following on from the successful user-generated content platform created for for the PS3, and the PSP iteration coming out later this year, co-founder of Media Molecule Alex Evans has been teasing about the future of the franchise in a recent interview.
Thanks to a tip from the guys over at SEGA, we’ve got some new footage of Obsidian Entertainment’s “Alpha Protocol” to share.
Espionage, spies, martial arts. It’s all here for your perusal.
Let us know what you think about the game in the comments section.
