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.
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!
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 last ten weeks we’ve been revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and we think you’ll agree we’ve included some incredibly talented teams. We’ve now revealed ninety developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing the final ten!
Dante’s Inferno is getting an online co-op expansion pack on April 29th and EA has finally announced the price. Considering the content, it’s actually not so bad.
As source material goes, 14th century prose written in Italian that rambles on for hundreds of pages (14,000 lines in fact) is understandably not often found at the top of many game producers’ lists.
When said material has been instrumental in forging modern society’s perception of Hell, however, suddenly Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy shakes off the funk of a few hundred years and starts to look more and more like a candidate for a rip-roaring adventure.
Welcome to our monthly feature were we tell the world what’s been happening over the last month at PS3 Attitude.
Ever wanted a game, but weren’t sure which edition to get? Then PS3 Attitude is here to help, in a new occasional feature known as Special Edition Unboxed!
With special editions of games becoming increasingly more common, you’ll be forgiven for feeling a little overwhelmed by the sheer amount of choice gamers are subjected to these days. Exactly what you get in the box can sometimes be a little unclear, so the purpose of this new feature is not only to let you know what you get for your money, but also to give our impressions, and ultimately decide whether it’s worth getting over the standard edition.
To kick off this new feature, we’re going to hell with the Death Edition of the awesome Dante’s Inferno.
As part of a worrying trend, last week Dante’s Inferno joined the increasingly long list of games that have had a patch on the first day of release. The 1.01 patch was apparently already live last Thursday for the Australian release of the game, and lo and behold, was there when we fired up the game on Friday, so US gamers will have it to look forward to tomorrow.
Weighing in at 21MB, it is still unclear exactly what the patch does. Trophies? DLC? Bug fixes? At the moment your guess is as good as ours, but regardless of the reason for it, it is still not a particularly good indication of where things currently are in the industry.
A leaked trailer reveals that Dante’s Inferno will have online multiplayer and a level editor released as downloadable content!
Highlight: Kill 20 Unbaptized Babies
Dante Alighieri, whose epic poem we have come to love, has been given a massive makeover. Gone are the days of writing poetry and in its place is a warrior of the Crusades.
In Dante’s Inferno, Dante will find himself at the gates of Hell, Death’s scythe in hand, determined to rescue his love Beatrice from the clutches of Lucifer himself. But before we enter the fiery depths of the underworld, we must find how Dante came to this point.
In addition to its own animated movie, Dante’s Inferno will be getting a makeover exclusively for PS3 owners.
Proclaimed as the “Divine Edition,” those who purchase the game on the PS3 will be getting a little more bang for their buck…
Dante’s Inferno will be getting the ‘reverse movie tie-in’ treatment in February 2010 with the release of Dante’s Inferno: The Animated Movie.
Following the critical success of Dead Space: Downfall, also released by Film Roman in association with EA, this DVD and Blu-ray movie release already reminds us of another project from back in 2003.
And trust us, that is no bad thing.
EA’s Dante’s Inferno will be getting a demo on the PSN next week on December 9th. The demo is set to be a prelude to his latest journey through Hell and will introduce the story.
It’s not everyday that we report on a Wii game but this one was just to enticing to pass up. Mass: We Pray brings all the fun of going to church and celebrating the sacraments with a realistic cross controller and kneeling bench.
Check out their website for a trailer showing all the heavenly fun…
Doing a “Dead Space” and producing an animated movie companion for the upcoming hell-bound Dante’s Inferno, EA are hoping they’ve got all their “ducks in a row” and are suitably “aligning synergies” with what is essentially a clever marketing device to keep interest in the game high.
If you’ve been interested as to what the new Dante’s Inferno movie actually looks like, well, it’s a good thing we’ve embedded the trailer now, isn’t it?
Those of us looking for an early trip to Hell will get the very chance next month when a demo for Visceral Games’ Dante’s Inferno hits the PSN.
Entitled “Gates of Hell”, the demo is actually the entire first level of the game and will see the damned/early adopters fight through Hell’s first layer of nasties and then take on Death himself.
The latest developer diary from Dante’s Inferno explores the fifth circle of Hell or Anger. Here, Dante will unleash all his fury and might against the hordes of the underworld using Death’s trusty scythe and his holy cross. Nothing beats slaying demons in the name of the Lord.
Dante’s latest trip though Hell takes him to the tortuous land of the greedy. There, he will bear witness to sinners beg for mercy as they are ripped to shreds by both Hell and Dante himself.
The developer’s diary for Greed showcases this along with delving deeper into Dante’s past as a crusader. Welcome to the fourth circle of Hell…
