Earlier this week, news broke that Disney will be acquiring Marvel Entertainment and its vast portfolio of over 5000 characters. The agreement came to Marvel shareholders receiving $30 in cash and about 0.745 shares of Disney for each share they held, totaling approximately $4 billion.
As fans of both Disney and Marvel, we can’t help but wonder how this will affect the gaming community. Will we be seeing a cross-over game featuring superheroes and cartoon characters ala Kingdom Hearts or will the differences be much more subtle?
Gameplay, graphics, storyline; these have always been the defining element in video games. Not to be outdone, the score of a game is becoming equally important.
Below are some of the games that have left lasting impressions, sometimes even more so than the gameplay itself. Rhythm games, such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band, are not included as they revolve around music, and let’s face it, we already know how awesome their soundtracks are.
Welcome back to another Homerun PlayStation fans! This week we will be giving more news and views on all the new content for PlayStation Home that has arrived in Europe and North America.
In an unusual turn of events, content for Sony’s biggest game this year so far is arriving in North America nearly two months after Europe. We are so used to seeing it being the other way round, although we would rather everyone got it at the same time.
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…
Well we weren’t so sure if there was enough Home news this week to warrant a Homerun, but it turns out we got more than we bargained for with the recent announcement of PlayStation Home version 1.3.
This update is the most significant change for the product since its launch so here are all the details.
The Homerun is back with more news and views on the new content to hit PlayStation Home this week, plus anything else we can fit in.
Itâ€™s a busy week from all directions so letâ€™s get straight into it.
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.
PS3 Attitude is more than a website; we’re an entire movement dedicated to raising funds for charities. The more visitors we get, the more money we make – and we give it all away.
So in addition to what you see here, you’ll find us all over the Internet, spreading the word.
Here’s a quick guide to how you can get more involved with the site, have some fun and win prizes along the way.
Oh, and then there’s the whole Killzone 2 Clan thing…
We love competitions and giveaways here at PS3 Attitude. Heck, every Tuesday we even rebrand the site to ‘PSFree Attitude’ in honour of our weekly Twitter-based freebie-fest.
But this week we’ve got something really special for y’all. Yes, we’re offering you the chance to get your hands on one of the rarest of commodities for your precious Sackboy – a Golden Crown.
So what do you need to do to win this glistening ode to your creativity and awesomeness?
Itâ€™s another Home content week and the Homerun is here to fill you in with all the details and our views on what’s new.
If you think back to how Home was when it launched way back in December last year, you will see how much Sonyâ€™s online virtual hub has grown and evolved.
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.
Prince of Persia, Resident Evil, Castlevania,; these are just a few of the upcoming film adaptations that are in the works and we have the latest news about them all. Want to see Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan? We have it. How about the status of Paul W.S. Andersonâ€™s next Resident Evil movie? We have it. And the poster for the upcoming Metal Gear Sold? Well, we donâ€™t have that but you can bet your PS3â€™s that we will when itâ€™s released.
Welcome to what will be the last of our Twitter Weekly Digests. Whilst we’re continuing to be as active on Twitter as ever, we’ve decided to stop giving these weekly updates from now on as we hope you’ll have joined us – and all the interesting people we’ve introduced you to – on Twitter by now.
So in this final edition, we discuss game modes with David Jaffe, terrible pun-worthy headlines, the brilliant iTrophies app, our new Fantasy Football league and a real life computer bug.
A spin-off from the equally popular Shin Megami Tensei (True Goddess Reincarnation), the Persona flavour is especially popular among Japanese youth.
Where Persona fits in this wider RPG mosaic is not necessarily complicated, but it does at least require some explanation.
Persona is in fact a spin-off of a spin-off, and though we could have chosen to focus on just the primary spin-off (Shin Megami Tensei – we do hope you’re keeping up), we decided to highlight Persona purely because it has a better chance of seeing a Western release on the PS3.
Although there is no update in Sony’s online universe this week – content tends to arrive every other week now – we do have a roundup of news on PlayStation Home that we haven’t managed to pick up on the site so this article will tell you all about it.
We’re always striving to provide you, our gracious readers, with the best features and tools here at PS3 Attitude, and we hope the latest changes we’ve made will be to your liking.
In one of our biggest updates for some time, we’ve added new commenting features, a great new login system and various other cool additions.
Batman is coming.
If you’ve broken the law, be afraid of the shadows.
Look out for guano because when you get caught it will probably hit the fan. The Dark Knight could well send you to Arkham Asylum. It seems to be the place to be for any up-and-coming bad guy lately.
Until everyone breaks out, that is…
Twitter has been rummaging in our fridge here at Attitude Towers for some time now, and it seems that we’ve come to just accept it as par for the course.
With Twitter friends like ours though, we can’t be blamed for that!
This week, we managed to come 6th in GamesAid’s Charity Poker event. Final table FTW!
PSFree Attitude took a quieter turn this week thanks to Develop09 in Brighton, where we got a load of info about a host of new games and features, including APB and the Motion Controller for the PS3.
Music has become an integral part of video games; sometimes becoming more popular than the game itself. Every gamer probably knows the tune to Super Mario Bros. or recognizes the heavy metal found in the Devil May Cry series. There are even entire concerts dedicated to the music of these games.
Now, gamers can listen to their favorite video game music via a new social website, Playnit. If the name sounds familiar, itâ€™s probably because youâ€™ve seen its advertisements up on N4G but have yet to click the link. Perhaps you should give it a try, what could it hurt?
