Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a Dead Space 3 weapons giveaway

Typical Valentine’s Day exchanges include flowers, chocolates, or the occasional stuffed teddy bear. While those are all fine gifts, we here at PS3 Attitude want to kick things up a notch with a Dead Space 3 DLC giveaway of weapons and armor for you and your significant other.

Thanks to the lovely folks at Visceral Games, we have downloadable codes for three weapon/suit combo packs to giveaway. They include:

5 games that we dare you to play on Halloween

5 games that we dare you to play on Halloween

To be honest, we’ve never really understood Halloween at PS3 Attitude. As they grow up, children are understandably told time and time again to never ever accept sweets from strangers. Oh, apart from on Halloween, that is, when this kind of behaviour is positively encouraged. Madness!

But we digress. Halloween is also a great excuse to play some of the scariest games on PS3, so we dare you to make it through as many of our chosen titles as you can.

Gamescom 2012 trailer catchup – part 1

Throughout Gamescom week our inbox gets barraged by publishers pushing trailers. We can’t complain. We love them, and we know you do too.

That’s why we decided to collect our favourites and put them together in an article. It turned out we couldn’t narrow them down to 10, so we thought we might as well give you 37.

Here are nine videos to get you started. We’ll have more up throughout the day.

GC2012; Dead Space 3 frightens us in February

The release date for Dead Space 3 has been solidified with it still releasing in February but now we can confirm that NA will get it on 5 February 2013, whilst the UK and the rest of Northern Europe will see it on the 8 February.

EA and Visceral Games have also revealed a new feature for the game – weapon crafting.

20 minutes of Dead Space 3 gameplay

EA’s 2012 E3 showcase was amassed around new iterations of publisher’s biggest and most successful franchises. From relatively new (Crysis 3) to unfrozen from carbonite (SimCity), Electronic Arts CEO, John Riccitiello made it abundantly clear that the publishing giant would indeed focus on strengthening an already proven stable of franchises. Among EA’s prized assets is Dead Space and the forthcoming Dead Space 3.

What wasn’t shown at E3 however was this rather large chunk of Dead Space 3 footage which serves as the first real close-up we’ve seen of the third installment in the survival/horror series. Steve Papoutsis, vice president and general manager of Visceral Games would like to take you on a tour of some of the new aspects you can expect when Dead Space 3 makes its way to store shelves. Including the polarizing addition of 2-player drop-in/drop-out cooperative play.

‘We can’t not be a horror game because that’s what Dead Space is’, says EA Labels president

‘We can’t not be a horror game because that’s what Dead Space is’, says EA Labels president

Fears that Dead Space 3 is leaving behind its horror roots have been addressed by EA Labels president Frank Gibeau. In an interview with CVG, Gibeau admitted that the studio is trying to make the game “more broadly appealing” – a clear indication that it is softening – but he also said “[we] definitely do not want to piss off our fans”.

E3 12; Dead Space 3 takes the dead out of space and onto the planet Tau Volantis

Dead Space 3 was Electronic Arts big reveal of E3 this year, and the game introduces audiences to a whole new kind of Dead Space. The biggest news is that the game will feature drop-in/drop-out co-op, pairing Isaac Clarke with the newly introduced John Carver. Now that you’re no longer alone, questions arise as to whether or not Dead Space 3 can still deliver the same survival horror atmosphere as its predecessors.

E3 12; Highlights from Electronic Arts

Not to be upstaged by Sony and Ubisoft, Electronic Arts has also had a strong showing at this year’s E3, as the likes of Dead Space 3, Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Crysis 3 are sure to excite gamers.

Our only complaint is that all of the games shown were sequels to existing franchises. Everyone loves a good sequel, but it would have been nice to see EA show off some new interlectual property. Well, that or Mirror’s Edge 2.

But we digress; on with the trailers…

There’s a new outbreak aboard the Sprawl; Dead Space 2 receives two new maps

There’s a new outbreak aboard the Sprawl; Dead Space 2 receives two new maps

What could be scarier than fighting necromorphs all alone aboard a darkened space vessel? Nothing, is what you’d probably say. Well, what if you had to fight them in a creepy nursery filled with playsets and and a smiling sun that eerily stares back at you? Yeah, the Sprawl is looking mighty fine right about now.

Visceral Games revealed that they are busy working on two new maps for Dead Space 2′s multiplayer, The Academy and The Concorse, both of which will be available for the wonderful price of absolutely nothing. That’s right, they’re free.

New Dead Space 2 DLC coming right at you!

We can’t help but notice that you finished all of your Dead Space 2. Nice work but there’s more to do on the Sprawl.

EA and Visceral Games are ready to release a slice of DLC that will again have you meandering through the massive space city. This time you’ll encounter an old foe and will not be shooting this foe as Issac.

We’ve got all the details on the add-on content. Check it out.

January 2011 recap: LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 kick-start the year of the rabbit

January 2011 recap: LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 kick-start the year of the rabbit

We are now in the year of the rabbit; that means, if you’re into astrology this is going to be an exciting year for you and your PlayStation 3, what with rabbits being known for their artistic talents and good taste. However, those who consider astrology to be a lot of superstitious nonsense may require further persuasion.

We advise unbelievers to look at the games released in January – LittleBigPlanet 2, Dead Space 2 and Mass Effect 2 – because these alone point to a good year. Each one is a blockbuster title and likely to be in contention when the awards are being handed out. What’s more, this selection is diverse and offers something for almost everyone. There are worse ways to start a year, that’s for sure.

Dead Space 2 – behold the hand cannon

Dead Space 2 hasn’t been out for long, about a week actually. The follow up to 2008′s wildly successful survival horror journey has already garnered plenty of praise.

The completion of hardcore mode unlocks a certain item that just may make the nearly impossible task worth a try. Take a gander at the video that explains it all. Note: the video is spoiler free in terms of plot but if you do not want to see the reward for completing hardcore mode you may want to move on to the next story.

The Year of the Rabbit; 2011 for you and your PS3

The Year of the Rabbit; 2011 for you and your PS3

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’?

Dead Space 2 – launch trailer

The outlook of 2011 is bright. PS3 owners will indeed be busy with a host of AAA titles set to explode onto the scene before we bid 2011 adieu. One of the first of these incendiary titles to release is Dead Space 2.

All of us that played the first game remember making our way through the USG Ishimura, eying the million vents, and shooting the appendages off of countless necromorphs. Today we are given a look inside Isaac Clarke’s next tour with the official Dead Space 2 launch trailer.

What does EA have in store for you this time that will keep you playing in daytime hours?

Dead Space 2 Demo Gameplay Video and Impressions

The first Dead Space was a brilliant game that brought fear and anxiety to another level. If the demo is any indication, the sequel is going to be just as good, if not better than the original. Were you expecting otherwise? Probably not.

If you haven’t had a chance to try the demo for yourself yet, we have a gameplay video that shows you just how exhilarating and terrifying Dead Space 2 truly is. Oh, and Isaac goes a bit crazy attacking babies. Hey! They came after him first!

Dead Space 2 multiplayer preview

Visceral Games created one of the most supremely terrifying and atmospheric games in history with Dead Space 1, and, from what we’ve played of it, it looks like they are about to do the same again with Dead Space 2. However – that’s all good for singleplayer – it takes more than a great setting and mood to create an interesting multiplayer experience; it needs to be competitive and moreish. Is Visceral up to the task?
