Cuboid: A Most Puzzling Conundrum

Cuboid: A Most Puzzling Conundrum

You never would have guessed it but Cuboid is quite addicting. There is great satisfaction when you move that block into position and hear the winning chime. Some of the more difficult puzzles, the later ones on Expert, can take upwards of twenty minutes each. Yikes! That’s what I call dedication. Of course, it’s going to be different for everyone but it definitely takes some thought and pre-planing if you want to get the best score.

Sony Ericsson C905 – the PS3 phone

Sony Ericsson was good enough to allow PS3 Attitude special access to the C905 phone over the Christmas period so we could exclusively try out its PS3 integration features.

Read on to discover why, if you’re a PS3 owner, you might want to consider getting your hands on one of these 8 megapixel superphones. Since you’re all nice people, we’ll even reveal some new features that are coming soon to the C905.

PS3 wireless keypad; worth it?

Are you one of those people who like to chat away in your favourite multi-player lobby, within Home or via messaging on the XMB?

For as long as the PS3 has been around, a proper keyboard has been the best way to handle the situation. But a full size keyboard means you have to stop using the controller and grab a separate device.

So is the new Wireless Keypad the answer to all your chatting needs?

Yet more games get the trophy treatment – or do they?

In my blatant hunt for easy trophies this week, I came across 2 stories which filled me with glee. Two games are to be patched with trophies in the near future. In fact, they already were. Then one wasn’t. Then it never was in the first place.

Click through for some semblance of an explanation, from what I can gather.

MotoGP 08; a step to realism?

MotoGP 08; a step to realism?

During 2007 Capcom announced that they now have the right to publish games based on the MotoGP franchise. At first, that decision seemed risky, since Namco used to develop Moto GP games.

The first footage of the game got us excited, with head of communications of Capcom Europe Ben Le Rougetel, promising us that the game would be able to be played by both amateur and experienced players. The system they were developing would be available to “read” the player’s reactions and decide the difficulty level he/she would be playing on.

Just a few months before the release of the game, an optimistic hype had been created around Capcom’s attempt to give us a “re-innovated” MotoGP experience.

Two months ago, the game hit the stores and gave gamers the opportunity to finally see for themselves what Capcom had managed to create.

Did Capcom’s take on the MotoGP franchise proved to be another mediocre bike simulator or a hidden gem?

Prince of Persia; the last ‘must-have’ of 2008?

Prince of Persia.

Those three little words immediately bring back memories of one of gaming’s best loved characters. As with any new game in a well-loved franchise, there are also feelings of concern and trepidation as you load the latest in the long line of sequels; ‘have they done the series justice?’, you ask yourself.

Having now completed my first playthrough of the latest Prince of Persia title, I can answer that question most emphatically…

Age Of Booty Impressions

With little better to do, I downloaded the Age Of Booty Trial today to give it a whirl.

Should I have set my hopes up for the high seas and open oceans in this click ‘n’ go pirate-a-thon? Would I have be better off lowering my expectations like the trawling nets of a weirdy-beardy fisherman on one too many rums?

BBC iPlayer review; watch again?

Yesterday, the BBC launched their own official version of the BBC iPlayer for the PS3. So how does it compare with the sterling work of the person that created the unofficial version, and does it work well enough that you would actually use it?

Sony bucks trend and starts advertising in Japan

It was only recently we discussed how Sony’s dependency on word-of-mouth advertising may not be the best marketing ploy to get their shiny black monolith into as many homes as possible.

Call of Duty: World at War; better than CoD4?

Let’s be honest.

The only question everyone seems to want the answer to is whether Call of Duty: World at War is better than CoD4 or not. Right?

Thankfully, the answer is a lot more involved than you might think.

Tom Clancy’s EndWar; an RTS for the people?

When we had the chance to give EndWar a spin last month we were able to get hands-on with one small battle. Whilst that experience was good, how does the full game stack up?

Does the final fight match up to our pre-war taster?

Dead Space; Open?

Open?

That’s the word that will become embedded in your consciousness when you’re done with Dead Space. That ironic hologram, asking you every single time you are about to open a door. It knows you’re scared and it’s using that fear of yours to its own advantage…
