Mutinies. Hardware wars. Dying consoles. Tax laws. A month in the games industry can cover a variety of headline-catching topics, but these should never steal the attention away from the true stars of the industry – the games.
A survey sent to PlayStation owners has fueled speculation that Resistance 3 is on the way. The survey asks interviewees if they believe that Resistance 3 is in development, and if so how likely they would be to buy it.
The Sun, Britain’s top-selling newspaper, is running an article which has psychologist Steve Pope claiming that games are “addictive”, cause “depression” and are one of the main reasons why “we are getting more violent”.
Following on from yesterday’s odd sequence of events, Activision Blizzard has come out with all guns blazing.
PS3 Attitude received a statement late last night detailing where the Call of Duty franchise is heading – and it contained a couple of surprises.
Welcome to our monthly feature were we tell the world what’s been happening over the last month at PS3 Attitude.
Make no mistake, zombies are fun to kill. We’ve had years of pleasure dismembering these lumbering sacks of meat. They allow us to become murderous fiends without our consciences ever getting in the way, but should we feelguilty about all those heads we’ve blown off with a rusty sawn -off shotgun? Of course not; zombies don’t have feelings – we’re doing them a favour by freeing them from the undignified situations they are in.
Nevertheless, maybe they deserve a break because they are being so over-used they’re starting to lose their impact.
It seems that some people with sniper like patience have managed to scope out some new information on the next Call of Duty – so where are we heading this time?
There’s a certain tension in the air here at Attitude Towers. The normally carefree (or slightly bizarre in the case of Danny_D) banter has been replaced by hushed, worried whispers.
You see, there are Kittens in the Tower today. This generally wouldn’t be any cause for concern – kittens are cute right?
But these kittens have a penchant for shooting, and routinely sharpen their claws – step forward the Kamikaze Kittens.
It seems to be the case that the more powerful consoles are becoming, the rarer it is that we can just pick up and play a game. Instead, our time is being spent downloading and installing patches to rectify bugs which should have been resolved prior to release.
It begs the question: has the ability to release downloadable updates led to developers becoming more complacent than in previous generations regarding the bugs in their games?
The Church of England have condemned video games, stating they are violent and feature sexual content.
Is this – once again – a case of the misinformed guiding the misinformed?
Activision Blizzard have announced their net revenues for 2009 – and it’s a big number. $4.28 billion.
This is a massive jump over 2008’s figure of $3.02 billion. Can you guess what game was responsible for that?
The shortlist for the BAFTA GAME Award 2009 has just been announced, and you can now vote for your favourite! This is the only award at the British Academy Video Game Awards which is voted for by the public, so it’s fitting that it’s also the most prestigious.
Some great games have been nominated, including seven titles on the PlayStation 3, one of which is exclusive (bet you can’t guess which one).
As games are an interactive medium, they have the potential to offer a fluid ever-altering experience. However, developers have traditionally had difficulty bringing this type of thinking to fruition and as a result we have all grown up playing mostly linear games. Thankfully there are several pioneers within the gaming world who want to break games free from the shackles of linearity.
One approach which has proven popular is the inclusion of morality systems, giving the gamer the freedom to be as good or bad as they like with their decisions affecting the paths they will take.
In this feature we will discuss why morality systems are used and consider what role they will play in the future.
fourzerotwo has just given word that a new patch is live! What does it do?
Welcome to the latest in our exclusive CelebReview series.
Instead of being written by the awesome volunteers that help run PS3 Attitude, these reviews and stories have been created by various well-known public figures, world-renowned gamers and media personalities.
Today, the world’s #1 ranked PS3 CoD4 Pro Gamer, Dennis ‘zDD’ Dozier, gives us a two part review of both Modern Warfare 2 and the new SplitFish FragFX Pro controller.
Confirming what we already knew by looking at the box, EA’s Medal of Honor restart will be the first M-rated game of the long and respected series.
Of course this isn’t the only monumental shift the game will be experiencing.
It’s no secret what EA are trying to achieve with rebooting the Medal of Honor franchise and setting it during a modern conflict. You only have to look at the sales of Activision’s Modern Warfare 2 to realise that there is an extreme appetite among gamers right now for more shooters of this type.
Words cannot describe the latest trailer for Modern Warfare 2. From the eerie tale of brotherhood taken straight from the Bible to the array of clips arranged perfectly in harmony to the desolate tone set by the music, now is the best time to get excited if you haven’t already…
Just recently Infinity Ward allowed a small group of very privileged individuals to check out the multiplayer in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Unfortunately there apparently was some mix up with the invitations and we here at PS3 Attitude weren’t invited(end of sarcasm), but that’s not going to stop us from bringing you all the delicious details!
Infinity Ward have updated their YouTube page with a new video showcasing a multiplayer match of Capture the Flag. Watch as two soldiers use teamwork to completely dominate the map and successfully deliver the flag to their base.
Gunfire, explosions, rockets; Modern Warfare 2 appears to have everything of a AAA game. Be sure to watch through the entire video to see some that the gun is not always mightier than the sword…
