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!
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!
Bulletstorm is a first-person shooter from the Epic Games studio, People Can Fly. It is set in the future, in the 26th Century, in a time when big burly marine-types stroll around alien planets armed …
This time last year, we’d just seen the releases of high profile titles such as BioShock 2, Dante’s Inferno, Heavy Rain and the North American and European releases of White Knight Chronicles and Star Ocean: The Last Hope International. In 2011, February was just as busy as last year, if not more so, with a huge number of games both released and announced.
The first-person shooter genre is one of the most dominant of this generation. The success of Call of Duty alone is staggering. Back in late December, Activision announced that Black Ops had surpassed $1bn in sales and that over 600m hours had been logged playing the game. The game is still topping the charts today. Call of Duty isn’t the only franchise flying the flag for first-person shooters either; there is also much fanfare for Killzone, Battlefield, Medal of Honor and Resistance, to name just a few of the big hitters.
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’?
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…
A new developer diary for Bulletstorm has been released by EA, explaining the game’s story and its obscene characters.
Bulletstorm is, of course, the larger than life space shooter from People Can Fly, the team behind Gears of War. It may look like a generic first-person shooter, but, believe us when we say, Bulletstorm has more balls than any other game belonging to its genre.
A game as deliciously messy and silly as Bulletstorm is shouldn’t be played alone, and we’re glad developer People Can Fly agrees. The studio is adding co-op multiplayer to Bulletstorm so you can “kill with skill” with your friends.
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 fifty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing another ten.
EA has released a video with Cliff Bleszinski, a designer at Epic Games, who takes us through his team’s latest project, the obscenely gory Bulletstorm. Bleszinski shows off the game mechanics, and he informs us that this is the only video game that allows you to give your enemies “a colon cleansing with lead.” We’re sold.
We’ve already had announcements this week from Capcom, Atlus and Square Enix and now it is EA’s turn to announce their E3 line-up, promising ‘highly anticipated titles in all genres’.
This month, we’ve been skinning everything in sight in Red Dead Redemption, demonstrating our construction skills in ModNation Racer and making our boards do the work in Skate 3. But as much as we enjoyed these titles, our thoughts kept drifting to the future as we got excited about news of sequels to massive PlayStation exclusives. Here’s the rundown of May’s highlights…
The nice people at EA were good enough to invite us to see some of their shiny new PS3 titles.
Along with some nice full-title surprises, we got to see a glimpse of what EA’s many and various developers have up their sleeves for your existing games cabinet.
Epic Games, the studio behind such hits as the Gears of War and Unreal Tournament series, have announced today the development of a new IP entitled Bulletstorm.
Bulletstorm isn’t your average FPS as it introduces the new “kill with skill” gameplay mechanic that requires you to be creative in taking down your enemies.
