LittleBigPlanet is receiving yet another costume pack, but this time it’s featuring our favourite space crew from Mass Effect. It’s nice to see the LBP titles being strongly supported still and we hope these costumes will be compatible with any inevitable LBP games on the PS4, or future games on the Vita.
And so it’s all come down to this; the nominees for PS3 Attitude’s ‘PS3 Game of the Year 2013’!
Although 2012 was a relatively quiet year for big releases, it still gave us plenty to play. From blockbuster retail titles to independent downloadable games, they’re all represented below.
This year’s nominations for PS3 GAME OF THE YEAR are…
We are well into the second half of 2012 and feel the need to look back on some of the best releases the first two quarters of 2012 had. The year is usually so heavily packed with AAA releases during the holiday months that it’s easy to forget about the gems that came before them.
Each member of the PS3 Attitude team has assigned a point value of 5, 3, and 1 to their top three games of 2012 thus far, allowing us to create a list of the top five games. In the end we had a list well over 10 games. Here are our top five.
I scared myself the other day. Before you ask, no, I didn’t look in a mirror or work out when the last time I exercised was; I counted up all the role-playing games I own that I haven’t completed yet.
You may not know it but we stand on the precipice of one of the most important development decisions in video game history. One whose ripple effects will be felt throughout the industry moving forward.
If BioWare goes ahead with the purported changes to the Mass Effect 3 ending, it stands to set a damning precedent potentially hamstringing the creative integrity of future creative endeavors.
For developer BioWare, Mass Effect 3 represents perhaps the highest degree of difficulty that any studio has faced leading into a project. With two stellar games already seeded in the public consciousness, the third and conclusive act in the Mass Effect series comes with heaps of well-earned pressure. BioWare’s ambitious directive to carry specific player decisions over the entirety of the trilogy also creates a unique set of circumstances and expectations surrounding the final chapter.
With that in mind you’d be hard pressed to find another studio anyone would rather trust with the biggest RPG release in recent memory than the Canadian-based studio. Chances are you started putting money aside for ME3 right around the time ME2 wrapped up, however those with lingering doubts should quickly put them to bed. Mass Effect 3 is a masterpiece that demands to be played.
A pair of Mass Effect 3 trailers, one live-action and one of the CGI variety await your eyeballs.
The reapers are coming! The reapers are coming!
In anticipation of the epic release of the epic conclusion to the epic Mass Effect series, BioWare has released a pack of new trailers into the wild.
There are plenty of new details revealed here including some never-before-seen enemies types. Have a look and let us know what you think.
You may have guessed that Martin Sheen is returning to reprise his role as The Illusive Man, but what role will former teen heartthrob Freddie Prinze Jr. play?
BioWare released a special video today giving fans a rundown of all of the voice talent team assembled for Mass Effect 3.
Given the run of stellar games that have come out of Bioware and the Mass Effect franchise specifically, most gamers are comfortable with the understanding that the Canada-based development studio will do right by Commander Shepard in Mass Effect 3. What is unknown however is the state of the game’s widely debated multiplayer mode.
Have a look at what the hoopla is all about in the latest trailer.
These days pre-order bonuses, and more specifically predictable profit margins, are all the rage. In anticipation of the launch of Commander Shepard’s final mission, EA hath revealed the extraneous pieces of retailer specific pre-order bonuses gamers can expect for Mass Effect 3.
We’ve moved on from 2011, but what a fine year it was. It was a year packed with many highlights: Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Portal 2, Skyrim, L.A. Noire, Uncharted 3 and Batman: Arkham City, to name just a few.
We now turn our collective eyes towards the gems 2012 will bestow on us, and it looks set to be another fantastic year.
Over two articles, PS3 Attitude’s writers are each selecting their three most anticipated games of 2012. Staff writers Stefhutch20 and Ryanmoto3 will put their votes forward in part 1 and editors DolphGB, Majiesto and Seanoc will follow up later with part 2.
So without further ado, here are the hottest PS3 games of 2012, selected by Team Attitude.
Another year over. A new one just begun.
2011 was a real corker for the PlayStation 3. And for PS3 Attitude too. We got up to all sorts of shenanigans over the last twelve months, and some of us still have the bruises to prove it.
But this isn’t going to be one of those lame retrospective list articles that counts down our favourite moments from the last year. Oh no. This is 2012. This is about what comes next.
So strap yourselves in and get ready for the ride.
Check out this feast of trailers from EA at Gamescom 2011. Mass Effect 3, Battlefield 3, SSX and FIFA 12 are the highlights, but we also have trailers for Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning, Need for Speed: The Run and NHL 12, not to mention the first footage of FIFA Street 4.
Mass Effect 2 was predominantly a corridor shooter, even with its huge and richly detailed space world. It wasn’t a bad set up, though; BioWare found a successful balance between exploration and action, and the gaming world responded by giving the team a slew of awards.
At this year’s E3, 46,800 industry professionals, journalists, retailers and analysts arrived in LA to experience the videogame industry’s biggest event of the year, and with over 200 exhibitors promoting their latest games and hardware, this year was arguably the biggest ever.
We cannot offer you a complete guide to E3 2011 (that would require writing a book), but we can give you this neat list featuring 10 thing that caught our attention during this year’s show. We had great games and impressive hardware on show and a lot of stuff happening in-between. Enjoy.
We have a release date for Mass Effect 3, budget your vacation time accordingly.
In a short message posted on the Bioware Social Network, Community Coordinator Chris Priestly posted confirmation that Mass Effect 3 will be delayed.
We’d all like to get our hands on a copy as soon as possible but this delay bodes well for the fortunes of gamers and developers alike.
As Ps3 owners we are fortunate to get the chance to experience the Mass Effect franchise by way of Mass Effect 2. Furthermore, PlayStation fans were able to play much of the game’s previously released downloadable content as it was bundled in the retail release.
Available for download soon will be the final mission of Mass Effect 2, titled ‘Arrival’.
