While some franchises simply refuse to go away, others seriously struggle to make the leap into multi-game territory. This can be for a number of reasons, but usually comes down to poor sales, regardless of how popular the game is among those who played it. This week, we’ve been discussing the likelihood of whether or not we’ll see a sequel to five of our favourite PS3 games.
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!
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and believe us when we say that there are some incredibly talented teams included. We’ve now revealed seventy developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing ten more.
We – along with many other people – like 3D Dot Game Heroes. The homage to all things old skool is a real treat.
The game is set to get even better though with the introduction of a ‘Hall Of Heroes’.
Creative people are going to be very happy!
Welcome to yet another rip-roaring edition of PS3 Attitude’s regular ‘Deals of the Week’.
Every week we bring you 4 suggestions of games that you should buy for the weekend and today is no different, as we up our running total to 33 great deals and counting.
Don’t think for a minute that we are running out of steam though. Read on for 2 deals to scare you witless, and a great price on a brand new game that may just take you back to your childhood…
They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery. If that is the case, then the folks over at Nintendo should be blushing. 3D Dot Game Heroes is reminiscent of the Legend of Zelda titles, taking the classic overhead adventure game and reinventing it for the PlayStation 3. Gone is the flat and 2D realm of the 8-bit era, instead replaced by a glorious multitude of cubes and colors.
Off in the far away kingdom of Dotnia there was once a hero who overthrew the evil Dark King Onyx using the power of six magical orbs and his legendary sword. He sealed the evil one inside a Dark Orb, hoping that he would never return.
Flash forward a long, long time and here we are in the present day where the entire kingdom has upgraded to a new 3D look by order King Tezro. All is not well in the kingdom though as the evil Bishop Fuelle has stolen the Dark Orb and plans to release the Dark King. It is up to you, the hero, to defeat the bishop and restore peace to the land before anything else goes awry.
One of the unique features of 3D Dot Game Heroes is the ability to create and customize your own personal hero of the game. In anticipation for its May 14th launch, Southpeak Games have come up with an online character builder akin to the one that will appear in the game.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to transfer your hero over to be playable but you can practice and sharpen your skills in preparation for the real deal.
Will your character be as awesome as this trailer?
Looking for unbeatable prices so that you save money and live better?
The people of Dotnia are living in fear. Only one hero can save the day…
Aram Jabbari from Atlus gives a walkthrough of one of the dungeons in 3D Dot Game Heroes.
The kingdom of Dotnia needs your help! With the power of nostalgia and a really huge sword, you are the chosen one to vanquish all evil. Dramatic? Perhaps.
In a society where gamers expected the latest in 3D graphics and technology, there stands one game that returns to the classic pixelated times of old, sorta. We were given the opportunity to experience 3D Dot Game Heroes in all its glory, and we we’re quite impressed to say the least.
Our demo began with a quick look at the character editor and the many wonderful creations you can dream up. Our guide made a quick pixelated version of the lovable Domo-Kun sans body and arms. Right away we could tell that this was going to be awesome…
3D Dot Heroes has been under scrutiny over its development cycle for a few reasons.
From bearing too close a resemblance to a certain Nintendo IP to outright plagiarism, it seems that we have been inundated with trailers and news about this title.
With a release in the US creeping up in just a few short months, Atlus have decided to take a different tack with their advertising and promotion techniques…
Up until now, we’ve only seen Japanese screens from the old school RPG 3D Dot Game Heroes. The game has been picked up by Atlus for publishing in North America in May 2010 so expect a trickle of information to slowly make its way forward.
For now, we have these 10 beautiful screenshots, translated in English.
3D Dot Game Heroes is one of our top most wanted games of 2010, and when we last spoke about it we were hoping for a European release.
Those prayers have been answered today as it was announced that the 80s retro title will be making its away to Europe in May.
It’s a testament to the allure simple yet compelling gameplay has over us here at PS3 Attitude that a game like 3D Dot Game Heroes could even make the short-list of our Most Wanted games of 2010 – never mind feature in the top ten.
Something of an homage to the games we played in short-pants, Silicon Studios have quite blatantly approached what is regarded as one of gaming’s all-time classics, The Legend of Zelda, and created what can only be seen as a new-age blocky reverence to the seminal title.
There are other references of course but – if you’ve already played The Legend of Zelda – prepare to play it again, this time with blocks.
We’ve dutifully focused our beady eyes on the charming 3D Dot Games Heroes of late and we hope it hasn’t gone amiss on your part.
Already out in Japan and confirmed by publisher Atlus for a release in NA sometime next year, the Zelda referencing RPG has got a lot of people excited due to its intriguing art style and reverence toward old-school gaming flair.
Even better, the game will support DLC, with Japan about to get the first of what we can assume will be many packs on December 25th.
It was recently announced that Atlus will be publishing 3D Dot Game Heroes in North America. Not only that, an actual release date and price has already been set in stone.
Take a look at the new trailer that Atlus has just released for the game.
