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.
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 â€œreadâ€ the playerâ€™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 Capcomâ€™s attempt to give us a â€œre-innovatedâ€ 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 Capcomâ€™s take on the MotoGP franchise proved to be another mediocre bike simulator or a hidden gem?
Ever dependable Ted the Dog has posted up on the community boards that Home will be offline from 11a.m. GMT (about an hour ago) for thirty minutes to facilitate “some updates to the servers”.
Well, that …
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…
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?

A new LBP post on the official PlayStation blog and lots of information is cleared up, talked up, and in some cases, even mopped up.
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?
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.
Historically, the relationship between Sony …
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.
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?
Thatâ€™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 youâ€™re scared and itâ€™s using that fear of yours to its own advantage…
After a short delay and 3 updates later, we finally have our hands on the game we’ve been craving for oh so long. Yes, I’m talking about LittleBigPlanet here and let me tell you, there is nothing little about this game… well, except for the adorable little Sackboy we love so much.
The PS3 is more than just a gaming machine, it’s an entire media hub. The fellows over at MediaMall Technologies have enabled PS3 owners to access the best videos of the internet through a nifty download called PlayOn. Users are able to access YouTube, CNN, ESPN, CBS, Nexflix, and the ever popular Hulu; all directly from the XMB.
We care about all the great game franchises youâ€™ll find across the entire PlayStation universe, so when people go ahead and make movies about those titles we sit up and take notice.
One franchise that has yet to make the leap to the PS3 is Max Payne, and we really wish it would. After a not-too-bad-at-all conversion of Hitman to the silver screen, will Max Payne do any better at the cinema? Or is more likely to nestle in with the likes of the Tomb Raider movies (or worse, Alone in the Dark)?
When the review copy of Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway came through my letterbox I was slightly apprehensive about playing it. My Granddad served in the 2nd World War and I am very aware of the way in which the war has affected people’s lives. I’ve stayed away from World War 2 games before because of this but I was determined to give this one a chance.
So was this the right thing to do, or should I have left well alone?
Ahhhh. That ‘new game smell’. It gets me every time when I take off the plastic wrapping and open up the box. It almost gets me hooked on the game before Iâ€™ve even played it.
But does Mercenaries 2 keep the â€˜highâ€™ going, or does the rush end there?
Itâ€™s the first day of the new PS3 Attitude. What better time to bring you the first ever â€˜team reviewâ€™. In this edition, Phreaky and DolphGB take BioShock to task. Is this really the big daddy of all games, or is it more like your little sister?
“Zombies have invaded your suburban sanctuary, and you have to take them out”.
I had the chance to sit down and give Monster Madness quite a lot of time before writing this review, having already played the demo before the arrival of the full version. I played the demo in both single player and co-op mode until I’d finish several times and I was looking forward to trying out the finished product.
