Once upon a time, there was a girl in red, a boy with a pumpkin on his head, a princess, and a little naked man; all of whom lived in a land filled with books and fantasy creatures. One day, they all lost their fairytale fame and fortune so now they must find a way to get it back.
This isn’t your average kid’s story however. Angry lumberjacks, sharp knives and buckets of blood are commonly seen throughout Fairytale Kingdom. Is this tale a classic or is it bound for the used book bin?
The Turtle Beach Earforce P21 headset is a gaming headset that allows PS3 owners to hear great quality audio from their favourite game, whilst being able to chat to their friends at the same time.
So how does this unit perform during a long gaming session, and can it improve your enjoyment of PS3 multi-player titles?
Well this is a first.
We were so happy Critter Crunch was released that, once we were done barfing with excitement, there was a bit of a scrap over who would do the review.
After an epic battle, Danny_D and I decided to share the review between us. Danny took on the multi-player aspect while I tackled single player modes.
Gaming headsets are a dime a dozen. They come in a variety of designs, features, and prices. TRITTON Technologies have designed the AX 720 specifically for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 video game systems with superb audio quality and voice communication. If you’re looking for gaming headphones, then these are the ones to own.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves picks up the story of PS3 poster-boy, Nathan ‘Nate’ Drake, roughly two years after the events of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. Similar to the previous story, this new adventure revolves around an unsolved historical mystery.
Instead of searching for the gold of El Dorado, this time Nate’s travels take him along the path of Marco Polo’s doomed voyage home from China in 1292. You see, Polo departed with 14 ships and over 600 passengers and crew, but when he arrived at his destination a year and a half later only one ship remained and only 18 of the passengers had survived.
Although Marco Polo described almost every other aspect of his journeys in minute detail he never revealed what happened to the ships that were lost, and it is this fact that drives Drake and his cohorts forward towards the treasure, and the truth.
The original Spelunker has a love-hate relationship with gamers that are aware of its existence. Spelunker was released in the 80’s on a variety of platforms, including the NES. The game is most notable for its ridiculously unforgiving gameplay.
Minna de Spelunker is an HD remake of the classic title and was released on the PSN in JPN and HK. It was recently announced that Spelunker HD will be coming to America thanks to Tozai publishing the game.
Is the archaic gameplay just too much in this day and age?
After over 20 years, the Madden NFL series is still going strong and this year we see another entry into the franchise for the 2009/2010 season.
But how well does the game perform at attracting new audiences, while still living up to the high expectation sitting on its shoulders by long-term fans of the series?
Ryu Hayabusa is a man of few words. There’s no need because it’s his sword that does the talking, and you better not cross him or you’ll find yourself at the sharp end of it.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is more than just a simple port of the Xbox 360 version.
Containing more chapters, more playable characters, and a re-balancing of gameplay, not to mention beautiful graphics, the game has been deemed the definitive version by many.
Friend of PS3 Attitude, Cleric20 of Dark Matters, serves up another of his excellent movie reviews for your delectation. Grab some popcorn, sit back and enjoy as he gives you the full lowdown on Gamer, starring Gerard Butler.
If Sci-fi shoot ‘em up Gamer is to be believed then the future of gaming is less about motion control and more about nano-cells…
It’s been a while since the last Reel Deal but this week, we bring news of zombies and Metal Gears in the form of Resident Evil: Afterlife and the Metal Gear Solid fan film, Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy. These video game series are two of the most influential in the industry so we have come to expect big things from their big screen counterparts.
Demon’s Souls was released in Japan towards the beginning of the year and was met with great success, hailed as one of the best PS3 RPGs to date. Set in the fictional kingdom of Boletaria, you play as one of the ten classes of heroes as you set off to rid the kingdom of this mysterious black fog that has surrounded its outskirts.
Hidden within its depths are demons who feast on the souls of all who enter. Only the brave shall set out on this deadly quest to slay the demon lord, the Old One, and return peace to the kingdom. Be prepared as it is a tough journey ahead…
It’s been almost exactly two years since Codemasters released the original ‘DiRT’ racing title. When it hit shelves back in 2007, it was very well received by most, and some even hailed it as the greatest rally-racing game money could buy.
Now, Codemasters have given us DiRT 2, which contains a larger bag of tricks and more polish on the outside, but can it live up to the overall success of its predecessor?
We’re big fans of the classic Sony DualShock design here at Attitude Towers, so whenever we are presented with the opportunity to use optional third-party hardware to control our games, our eye is often super-critical.
So what did we think when we tried out the most unusual controllers yet devised for the PS3; the SplitFish Dual SFX Evolution and the FragFX v2? And do they make you better at online gaming?
Welcome to the PS3 Attitude Retro Review, where we take another look at titles that were released at least six months ago and discover whether they still ought to garner your attention. This time, it is the turn of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue.
We’ve had a long love affair with The King of Fighters here at PS3 Attitude. Some of the team remember the original title, and many of the subsequent sequels, with great affection.
But that love affair offers a double-edged sword, since the latest in the franchise – and the first to hit the current generation of super-consoles – needs to impress us more than the average punter.
Does The King of Fighters XII do enough to punch and kick its way back into our affections?
Before the Street Fighter IVs and the BlazBlues, there was a little game on the Dreamcast called Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes.
Even to this day, MvC2 is still played in tournaments across the country, and copies are sold on eBay for ridiculous amounts.
Thankfully you no longer have to give an arm and a leg to play this wonderful game…
Every week, new tracks are added to the already stellar list of songs in Rock Band 2. If that isnâ€™t enough for you (or you prefer physical media rather than digital) then there are Rock Band track packs to fill your needs.
Thus far, Harmonix have released five different track packs featuring classic rock, AC/DC, and the most recent Country Track Pack. So, put on your cowboy boots and ten gallon hat and saddle up for a wild ride across songs from the good olâ€™ south.
Welcome to the PS3 Attitude Retro Review, where we take another look at titles that were released at least six months ago and discover whether they still ought to garner your attention. First up, Resistance 2.
E3 was a momentous event that housed tons of gaming big screens, booth babes, and flashy lights and sounds. Tucked away between the two halls of the convention, right next to the Into the Pixel Gallery, was a lone setup. There were no booth babes, no flashy gimmicks, and just one game. The game was Shatter and its developer; Sidhe.
Finally, almost two months later, the game has been released and we were excited to finish what we had started back at E3. You play as BAT1138, a slave to the machine empire, forced to harvest energy for his masters. After a breakdown, he becomes self aware and breaks free from his prison. In order to escape, BAT must successfully traverse the ten levels of the factory and defeat the bosses at the end of each.
