With the dazzling opening ceremony last Friday, there was only one theme we could choose for this week’s article: the Olympics! Specifically, we’ve been discussing some of the biggest heroes on PS3, and which sports they would dominate in at the London Games. It’s fair to say that Bradley Wiggins, Michael Phelps, and Usain Bolt et al would have nothing on these guys.
Writing about games and playing games are a couple of the things that we do best. So why not share with you a little bit about the games that we have find the time to play in our precious schedules. What sort of games merit our undivided attention?
We are well into the second half of 2012 and feel the need to look back on some of the best releases the first two quarters of 2012 had. The year is usually so heavily packed with AAA releases during the holiday months that it’s easy to forget about the gems that came before them.
Each member of the PS3 Attitude team has assigned a point value of 5, 3, and 1 to their top three games of 2012 thus far, allowing us to create a list of the top five games. In the end we had a list well over 10 games. Here are our top five.
It’s once again time for PS3 Attitude to take a flippant look at the world of gaming. This week’s trope is impossibly obese bosses, all of whom could definitely stand to lose a few pounds; or a few stones; or, in one case, a few million tons. We had a fair amount of fat – sorry, big-boned – characters to choose from, but these are the five that made it onto our virtual weighing scales.
Many industry professionals have said that Dyad is a tricky game to describe, before simply going on to quote the developer’s description. On the contrary, I happen to think it’s easy to describe Dyad. The only problem is, will my description be easy to follow?
From tiny outfits that provide no more protection than dental floss, to massive armour that even Chuck Norris would struggle walking in, it has to be said that costumes in videogames often look pretty ridiculous. We could have picked five games at random for this list and they’d still have been relevant, but these are the characters we chose in the end (after we picked them at random).
The first six months of the year are always quiet due to publishers holding back their big guns to catch the Christmas bonanza. However, at this stage of the generation, doubts begin to creep into our minds and we find ourselves closely monitoring the games industry, furiously checking for a pulse.
Team PS3 Attitude is always diligent in writing the magical posts you enjoy reading so much. And while everyone is working hard, everyone tries to play equally as hard. Read on to find out what we’ve been playing this past week?
Although you wouldn’t know it from the atrocious British weather, it is actually summer now, so PS3 Attitude has been thinking about gaming worlds that we’d rather not holiday in. Videogames and hellish environments often go hand in hand, so we certainly had our work cut out in narrowing it down to just five locations!
Telltale Games has created a niche of their own with games that immerse us gamers into the movies, television shows, and even graphic novels they are based on. Wouldn’t it be great if we could suggest to Telltale Games what they’re next big episodic adventure should be?
Another week of new releases and even less time to catch up on our gaming. We constantly beg for more games but don’t get any more time to play them. Read on to find out what we’ve been playing this past week?
It’s that time of the week when PS3 Attitude takes a tongue-in-cheek look at our favourite pastime; gaming! This week, we’re discussing five weapons that are so unfeasibly gigantic that they’re bordering on farcical. Obviously the vast majority of videogames aren’t designed to be realistic, but surely we still need to draw the line somewhere!

Introducing a new weekly feature, in which PS3 Attitude takes an irreverent* look at the world of gaming. Today we’re discussing five sequels that, if we had our way, would never have seen the light of day; although, in a way we’re glad they did, because otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to write this article.
*At least 37% of the following is probably incorrect.
PS Vita was tragically undersold by Sony during their E3 keynote speech. An early leak spoiled the Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation announcement, so our only “surprise” came when we got a title for an already announced Call of Duty game. Oh, we got a logo too.
We’ve scanned the list of confirmed upcoming games. Here are some of the most noteworthy
The PS3 Attitude team is always hard at work writing the fabulous posts you enjoy reading so much. So how do we find the time to play the games we love? We do find time, we must. But wouldn’t you rather find out what we’ve been playing?
As much as I’d like one, unfortunately there’s no way I can justify, let alone afford, getting a PS Vita right now. Instead of looking upon owners of Sony’s latest handheld console with envy (well, to be fair I’ve been doing that too – obviously), I decided I would simply dust off my old PSP.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has gone through plenty of changes over the last few years and was even on the brink of being cancelled by Kojima Productions before it landed in the hands of Platinum Games. Rising made its playable debut at E3 this past week and we were able to go hands-on with Raiden and his sword slicing skills. Question is, does the game’s mantra of being able to cut anything still ring true?
Last year, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix wowed us with a darker and grittier Lara Croft than we’ve seen before. Rebooting the franchise to before Lara was the gun touting, ass kicking heroine we’re familiar with, Tomb Raider depicts a fragile girl who is thrust into danger and must survive at any cost. While we weren’t able to go hands-on with the game, we did get to see a lengthy gameplay demo that expanded on what was shown during Microsoft’s press conference.
