5 voice actors’ CVs that go on forever

Contrary to popular opinion, voice acting can be an extremely stressful job, and painfully difficult to sustain a livelihood from. However, a handful of talented people make the job look (and sound) easy, and their extensive portfolios are a testament to their skills. This week, PS3 Attitude is paying tribute to five of our favourite voice actors, and taking a look at their established careers.

Metal Gear set to go open-world with Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Solid movie confirmed

Hideo Kojima revealed a new title in the Metal Gear series, Ground Zeroes, during a Metal Gear 25th Anniversary event. We assume it made its glorious debut by flying out from a battered cardboard box.

It will be open-world and feature Big Boss rather than Solid Snake if the first promotional artwork is anything to go by.

Call in a care package with Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Don’t you hate it when you call in a care package and all that is to be found inside is banana skins, underwear and, well, a really cool flying drone that you take control of and when spotted, you say, “this is not the droid you are looking for” and escape?

With the Care Package edition of Black Ops II coming, you can control your own drone but the most you’ll probably do with it is frighten somebody on the toilet.

5 developers that we wish still existed

Earlier this week, SCE Studio Liverpool became the latest in a long line of developers to unfortunately close their doors. It’s no secret that the videogame industry has been hit extremely hard by the global recession in recent years, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to remember five of our favourite development studios that are sadly no longer with us.

Discovering the PlayStation Vita

A couple of months ago, I wrote about how I was perfectly happy with my trusty PSP, while I waited until I could afford a Vita. Well, a few weeks ago that day finally came, so I’ve spent the last month getting to grips (as well as swipes, tilts and taps) with Sony’s latest handheld console.

5 games that have awesome credits

Staff credits shouldn’t just be a list of names; they should be a reward for completing the game. Unfortunately most titles choose to take the former route, forcing us to make a cup of tea until we can take control again. However, very occasionally, a game’s credits more than justify the time spent getting up to that point, and remind us why we started playing in the first place.

Darksiders II – The PS3 Attitude Review

Darksiders II opens with Death charging up a frozen keep on Despair, his fearsome steed, hacking the few enemies brave enough to get in his way. The next stage sees him running up and across walls, clinging to pillars, shimmying at speed across hand holds and taking out ice skeletons with ferocious combos. A boss battle soon follows, which is surprisingly more intense than what you’d normally expect at this early stage.

5 kart racers that we’d like to see

5 kart racers that we’d like to see

Every generation, Sony takes one of its biggest franchises and turns it into a kart racer; on PSone it was Crash Bandicoot, on PS2 it was Jak and Daxter, and on PS3 it will be LittleBigPlanet. Kart racers are often looked upon with contempt by many gamers, because it normally signals the end of a console generation, and a refocus towards a more casual audience.

However, they also (usually) happen to be bloody good fun, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take a look at which other games we’d like to see given the kart racing treatment.
