Top developers have a lot in common with championship winning F1 teams: they both know the value of a good engine.
The F1 team may have great drivers but this means nothing if they’re sent out in a heavy, unreliable car. Likewise, the most creative game devs will always struggle if they’re asked to work with a shoddy game engine.
This new Assassin’s Creed 3 trailer shows off Ubisoft’s new engine, AnvilNext, and its confident tone suggests they think they have a winner.
Professional motocross legend Jeremy McGrath will be donating his portion of profits from his new downloadable game, Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad, to the bone marrow donor program Bethematch.org.
With the dazzling opening ceremony last Friday, there was only one theme we could choose for this week’s article: the Olympics! Specifically, we’ve been discussing some of the biggest heroes on PS3, and which sports they would dominate in at the London Games. It’s fair to say that Bradley Wiggins, Michael Phelps, and Usain Bolt et al would have nothing on these guys.
We are well into the second half of 2012 and feel the need to look back on some of the best releases the first two quarters of 2012 had. The year is usually so heavily packed with AAA releases during the holiday months that it’s easy to forget about the gems that came before them.
Each member of the PS3 Attitude team has assigned a point value of 5, 3, and 1 to their top three games of 2012 thus far, allowing us to create a list of the top five games. In the end we had a list well over 10 games. Here are our top five.
It’s once again time for PS3 Attitude to take a flippant look at the world of gaming. This week’s trope is impossibly obese bosses, all of whom could definitely stand to lose a few pounds; or a few stones; or, in one case, a few million tons. We had a fair amount of fat – sorry, big-boned – characters to choose from, but these are the five that made it onto our virtual weighing scales.
UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre has lent his expertise in many of the fighting moves in Sleeping Dogs. In this latest move to emphasize his role with the developers at United Front Games, they’ve shared a documentary. Now we get to see how Georges St-Pierre really feels about violence in video games.
Many industry professionals have said that Dyad is a tricky game to describe, before simply going on to quote the developer’s description. On the contrary, I happen to think it’s easy to describe Dyad. The only problem is, will my description be easy to follow?
On Friday 13 July, PS3 Attitude went along to the Mad Catz Unveiled community event at the Penthouse on Leicester Square, London.
It was an enjoyable event, attended by lots of fans. It showcased the company’s latest hardware and there were competitions with excellent prizes up for grabs.
Those who pre-order the upcoming Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition will also gain access to an exclusive Battlefield 4 beta, EA announced today.
While this is the first official announcement of Battlefield 4, don’t expect the game anytime soon. The beta is scheduled for fall 2013, nearly a year after Medal of Honor Warfighter’s October release date. Still, is it worth the pre-order knowing that you’ll have first access when the beta does come out?
UnoTelly UnoDNS products is a VPN service that allows your PS3 to pretend to be in a different country to the one it is really in.
On a PS3 if you try to use the US TV services, such as VUDU or Hulu while logged in to your US account, you’ll be faced with a message explaining that you’re not allowed to see that content. This is where UnoTelly comes into play. So, is it any good and how does it work? And what else do you need to consider?
From tiny outfits that provide no more protection than dental floss, to massive armour that even Chuck Norris would struggle walking in, it has to be said that costumes in videogames often look pretty ridiculous. We could have picked five games at random for this list and they’d still have been relevant, but these are the characters we chose in the end (after we picked them at random).
The first six months of the year are always quiet due to publishers holding back their big guns to catch the Christmas bonanza. However, at this stage of the generation, doubts begin to creep into our minds and we find ourselves closely monitoring the games industry, furiously checking for a pulse.
Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad fills a niche in console rally racing with superstar associations. What with the premature passing of Colin McRae in 2007 and the DiRT series having gone down a more destructive path for Showdown, it looks like Jeremy McGrath’s Offroad doesn’t have much competition.
Rainbow Moon is a PSN-exclusive retro RPG from German developer SideQuest Studios, the creators of tough-as-nails shoot ‘em up Söldner-X. Sticking with their hardcore roots, the studio’s latest release is about as deep as RPGs can get, boasting a complex battle system, tons of quests to complete, and a huge world to explore; but is Rainbow Moon a world worth exploring?
Although you wouldn’t know it from the atrocious British weather, it is actually summer now, so PS3 Attitude has been thinking about gaming worlds that we’d rather not holiday in. Videogames and hellish environments often go hand in hand, so we certainly had our work cut out in narrowing it down to just five locations!
Marvel vs. Capcom Origins brings together both Marvel Super Heroes and the original Marvel vs Capcom: Clash of the Super Heroes to the PSN and Xbox Live later this September, Capcom announced today.
Sony today announced that it entered an agreement on 30 June to acquire Gaikai. Sony, who is forking out approximately $380m for the company, is planning to use its cloud-streaming technology establish its own cloud gaming service.
It’s that time of the week when PS3 Attitude takes a tongue-in-cheek look at our favourite pastime; gaming! This week, we’re discussing five weapons that are so unfeasibly gigantic that they’re bordering on farcical. Obviously the vast majority of videogames aren’t designed to be realistic, but surely we still need to draw the line somewhere!
If you’re anything like me, then you’ve been searching for the perfect messenger bag, sling bag, or backpack to carry all your gadgets for a long time. I have officially crossed the line of someone collecting imperfect bags to somewhat of a bag whore, and I’m openly admitting that now. But I may have finally found that perfect bag. It’s a tech lover’s dream, but how well does it perform for the portable gamer?
