It is that time. Time for us to announce the final three PS3 Attitude Awards; the Editor’s Choice, Developer’s Choice and Game of the Year. Are you ready? Strap yourself in…
With the dazzling opening ceremony last Friday, there was only one theme we could choose for this week’s article: the Olympics! Specifically, we’ve been discussing some of the biggest heroes on PS3, and which sports they would dominate in at the London Games. It’s fair to say that Bradley Wiggins, Michael Phelps, and Usain Bolt et al would have nothing on these guys.
In the first part of PS3 Attitude’s Max Payne 3 review, we established that the game’s singleplayer campaign succeeded convincingly in the daunting task of updating the eleven-year-old franchise. With both style and substance, Max Payne 3 defied the odds and made bullet-time shooting feel innovative again, but is the gameplay as effective in online multiplayer?
This slick third-person shooter from Rockstar is the latest instalment in a series which began in 2001. The first two games were developed by Remedy Entertainment, but the Max Payne series is now in the hands of Bully developer Rockstar Vancouver.
Max Payne 3 hits US retailers on 15 May 2012 and the UK three days later. That’s only three weeks away. Whether you’ve thought about pre-ordering Max Payne 3 or not, some of these deals are tough to resist. Have you secured your pre-order yet?
Few franchises are synonymous with a single gameplay mechanic the way that Max Payne is with ‘bullet time’. The tortured former NYPD officer has been evading and plugging ne’er-do-wells thanks to the subdued effects of father time since his PS2 debut.
With Max Payne 3’s mid-May debut fast approaching, Rockstar Games would like to give a look at the continued evolution of ‘bullet time’.
Both Starhawk and Max Payne 3 received brand-spankin’ new release dates today.
Starhawk officially made its way onto the 2012 calendar while Max Payne 3, not to be outdone, issued its second launch date.
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 and Uncharted 3 and Batman: Arkham City, to name just a few.
But 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, the PS3 Attitude’s writers are selecting their three most anticipated games of 2012. Staff writers Stefhutch20 and Ryanmoto3 put their votes forward in part 1 and editors DolphGB, Majiesto and Seanoc are following up now.
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.
At long last Rockstar Games has officially announced the 2012 release of Max Payne 3. Once again Max will have to overcome the demons of his past only this time he’s bringing multiplayer with him.
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 sixty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing ten more.
Investing heavily on Red Dead Redemption was a risk for Take-Two. There was no guarantee that the public would buy into the concept of the game, so it could easily have ended up an expensive flop. Ben Feder, CEO of Take-Two, agrees and he has been speaking to VentureBeat of his delight that the gamble has paid off.
CVG are reporting that Rockstar, the publisher behind Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto, will be having a low key presence at E3 this year.
It was expected that Max Payne 3 and L.A. Noire would be on show at the press event in LA, but Rockstar have changed their plans because they fear there will not be enough time to show as much as they would like.
Today has been all about games delaying till next year it seems with Take-Two announcing several titles joining the new trend.
Originally scheduled for a release in November of this year, Bioshock 2 has now been granted by Take-Two a new release window of January-June 2010.
Max Payne is many things. Wronged cop, verbose time-bending cynic, one-time member of New Kids on the Block.
What we haven’t associated with the tragic trigger-happy character up until now is grime of a more personal nature.
Time to re-evalute your impression of Mr. Payne then, as if Game Informer’s new images are anything to go by, prepare to witness the ultimate descent of a man – no longer stripped of just his hope and morality – but also of deodorant and common dress-sense.
Reporting on new details about Max Payne 3 in the latest edition of Game Informer, our friends over at CVG have posted up some of the more salient points.
The acerbic and perpetually wronged Max is …
We toyed with the idea of reporting Max Payne’s return in the over the top literary style so accustomed with the series.
Then we realised it would take too long.
Max Payne 3 will be released this winter on multiple platforms including the PS3.
We care about all the great game franchises youâ€™ll find across the entire PlayStation universe, so when people go ahead and make movies about those titles we sit up and take notice.
One franchise that has yet to make the leap to the PS3 is Max Payne, and we really wish it would. After a not-too-bad-at-all conversion of Hitman to the silver screen, will Max Payne do any better at the cinema? Or is more likely to nestle in with the likes of the Tomb Raider movies (or worse, Alone in the Dark)?
