January 2011 recap: LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 kick-start the year of the rabbit

January 2011 recap: LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 kick-start the year of the rabbit

We are now in the year of the rabbit; that means, if you’re into astrology this is going to be an exciting year for you and your PlayStation 3, what with rabbits being known for their artistic talents and good taste. However, those who consider astrology to be a lot of superstitious nonsense may require further persuasion.

We advise unbelievers to look at the games released in January – LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 – because these alone point to a good year. Each one is a blockbuster title and likely to be in contention when the awards are being handed out. What’s more, this selection is diverse and offers something for almost everyone. There are worse ways to start a year, that’s for sure.

The Year of the Rabbit; 2011 for you and your PS3

The Year of the Rabbit; 2011 for you and your PS3

Well then, dear PS3 lovers… it will soon be the Year of the Rabbit, the happiest of all the Chinese zodiac signs.

In Chinese astrology the Rabbit is considered to be happy and popular. Rabbits are known for their artistic talent and good taste. You might say there are certain attributes of the Rabbit that foretell of a great year for Sony’s flagship console.

So, is that the case? Or will 2011 be more a ‘dog of a year’ than a metaphorical ‘lucky rabbit’s foot’?

December 2010 recap: to Vietnam and the future

It’s been a month of drinking, eating, and spending time with loved ones, and a month for announcements – big announcements. The following games were unveiled: Uncharted 3, The Elder Scrolls V, Mass Effect 3, SSX Deadly Descents, and a new Tomb Raider; it is a very impressive list. We also learned more about some of 2011’s most exciting games: Homefront, DiRT 3, L.A. Noire, Batman: Arkham City, Resistance 3 and Bulletstorm.

There weren’t many new releases, but the Vietnam expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was a highlight. We also got some demos – and yes, a demo can be a highlight, but only just. Here is the re-cap of the month…

PS3A Writer’s GOTY: a role-playing masterpiece

PS3A Writer’s GOTY: a role-playing masterpiece

If you asked me at the beginning of March what my favourite game of the year was likely to be, without a doubt I would have said Heavy Rain. With its incredible atmosphere, innovative gameplay and compelling story, it kept me engrossed for no less than five full playthroughs. However, on 9th March 2010 along came a game that completely blew me away: Final Fantasy XIII.

PS3A Writer’s GOTY: What Is It You Seek From Gaming?

Sometimes, there are games you can always go back to no matter what. Even though Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Bayonetta, and God of War III are all awesome, they never fully satisfied my needs as a gamer. There was just something missing and they all felt too familiar. Unique experiences like Heavy Rain are great and all, but it’s not exactly what I’m looking for in a game. Is it a must have? Absolutely. There’s only so much you can get from Heavy Rain though, and that’s a problem when you want more.

This year, there was one game that went beyond pushing buttons, understanding an intriguing story, or simply having fun. It became something far more significant, shaping the way I think, the things I want to do, and provided experiences that are both nostalgic and new at the same time. That game was Super Street Fighter IV, my 2010 Game of the Year.

PS3A Writer’s GOTY: In the end there will only be chaos

2010 has been host to many fantastic games, both exclusive and multiplatform. Seanoc has already mentioned heavy hitters including Bayonetta, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and his selection for GOTY, Gran Turismo 5. While they are all spectacular games in their own rights, they hold nothing against the fallen God of War. That’s right; I’m speaking of Kratos in God of War III, my choice for Game of the Year 2010.

GT5 Week; 5 things you should know about Gran Turismo 5

As Gran Turismo 5 launches today, there will undoubtedly be some of you wondering whether or not to buy the game or not. Here’s 5 things you should know about GT5.

GT5 Week; Special Edition Unboxed – Gran Turismo 5: Collector’s Edition

So, it’s finally here – the driving simulator to end all driving simulators. But the question is, do you pick up the standard edition of the game for £39.99, or get some extra content with the Collector’s Edition for £59.99? Don’t worry; PS3 Attitude is here to help.

The Great Debate: Nuketown

The Great Debate: Nuketown

Nuketown – Call of Duty: Black Ops’ small multiplayer map, based on a suburban nuclear testing area – has divided opinion across the net and on PS3 Attitude. There’s no doubt that it has a flawed spawn system, which will see you repeatedly die (through no fault of your own), but that hasn’t stopped gamers from voting for it again and again. It is by far the most popular map on Black Ops – but is popularity an accurate measure of quality? After all, just look at some of the nonsense that tops the film and music charts.

PS3 Attitude brings you three different opinions: Echo loves it, Danny_D loathes it and I’m (Seanoc) on the fence – it sure does hurt sitting on this picket fence. Read on to find out the reasons why we think the way we do about Nuketown…

Oct 2010; MoH, Castlevania, Vanquish, Fallout, Enslaved, FIFA 11, PES 2011

Oct 2010; MoH, Castlevania, Vanquish, Fallout, Enslaved, FIFA 11, PES 2011

Medal of Honor, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Vanquish, Fallout: New Vegas, Sonic the Hedgehog: Episode 1, FIFA 2011, PES 2011 and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West: these are just some of the games that have stormed the charts in October.

If July will be remembered for its summer shutdown, then October will be known for its abundance of games. What’s more: they were mostly quality. Yes, some underachieved, and others were predictable, but all were worth a play, and play we did…

PS3 Attitude’s Top 100 Developers – Wrap-up

Is BlazBlue’s Valkenhayn DLC worth $8?

Is BlazBlue’s Valkenhayn DLC worth $8?

A couple of months ago, BlazBlue:CS received its first downloadable character in the form of Makoto. She’s an awesome character to play as and is definitely worth the price. At the end of September, BlazBlue’s second downloadable fighter, Valkenhayn, was released on the PSN. Unsurprisingly, the DLC is once again priced at $7.99.

Don’t cry just yet. This butler is easily one of the most interesting characters in the game.
