It used to be your gaming experience ending when the credits rolled but nowadays, downloadable content is the norm. New content comes in a variety of forms from powerful weapons and armor to lengthy side missions that can extend your playing experience considerably.
This year’s nominations for BEST DLC are…
Portal 2 was one of the best games of 2011, and improved on the original in pretty much every way. Six months later, the Peer Review DLC somehow made it even better. And now, the game’s set for another revolution with In Motion; developed by Sixense, this new DLC adds more levels to the game, which make use of the PlayStation Move motion controller; but does it work?
Portal 2 becomes digitally downloadable on 6 November, with an exlusive 30% off discount for PS Plus subscribers. Portal 2 In Motion DLC will also be available on 6 November for $9.99, and 30% off for Plus subscribers. Will this entice you to play Portal 2 on PS3 again?
Contrary to popular opinion, voice acting can be an extremely stressful job, and painfully difficult to sustain a livelihood from. However, a handful of talented people make the job look (and sound) easy, and their extensive portfolios are a testament to their skills. This week, PS3 Attitude is paying tribute to five of our favourite voice actors, and taking a look at their established careers.
Staff credits shouldn’t just be a list of names; they should be a reward for completing the game. Unfortunately most titles choose to take the former route, forcing us to make a cup of tea until we can take control again. However, very occasionally, a game’s credits more than justify the time spent getting up to that point, and remind us why we started playing in the first place.
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.
If I were to write about my favourite games of 2011, this article would be ten times longer, and no one would ever finish reading it. Therefore, to spare people from slowly losing the will to live, I’ve somehow managed to cut it down to just one amazing title.
Portal 2 was finally released six months ago, and quickly became one of the most critically acclaimed games of this generation. However, if you’re still yet to play it then there has never been a better time, because earlier this week saw the release of Peer Review, the game’s first proper add-on. If you ask us it could well be a contender for the best piece of downloadable content ever; read on to find out why…
This announcement is not a lie as Valve has stated in a press release that DLC is currently in the works for Portal 2 and is targeted for a summer release.
You know what the worst part of falling from a great distance is? The end. The sudden and jarring splat of one’s body utterly ruins what would otherwise be a wondrous jaunt.
Thankfully the minds at Aperture Laboratories have solved this unfortunate gravitational reality with the debut of the ‘long fall boot’.
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’?
Valve is keen on keeping their promise of making the PS3 version of Portal 2 “the best console version of the product” by bringing Steam and its features to the system.
What this means is that Portal 2 will feature cross platform play between PS3 and PC/Mac gamers for multiplayer games in addition to cloud-based storage of saved game files and cross platform chat. This is a first for the current generation of consoles.
It’s been a month of drinking, eating, and spending time with loved ones, and a month for announcements – big announcements. The following games were unveiled: Uncharted 3, The Elder Scrolls V, Mass Effect 3, SSX Deadly Descents, and a new Tomb Raider; it is a very impressive list. We also learned more about some of 2011’s most exciting games: Homefront, DiRT 3, L.A. Noire, Batman: Arkham City, Resistance 3 and Bulletstorm.
There weren’t many new releases, but the Vietnam expansion pack for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 was a highlight. We also got some demos – and yes, a demo can be a highlight, but only just. Here is the re-cap of the month…
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!
CVG have uploaded a video from PAX 2010, where Valve have been showing off some of Portal 2’s co-op gameplay. Thanks to some smart design decisions, Portal 2 is shaping up to be the best co-op puzzler on the PlayStation 3.
We’re not sure what to make of this. In a recent interview with PC Gamer, Gabe Newell, the co-founder and managing director of Valve, indicated that the company had three big surprises to reveal over the next year and that they will shock everyone. The ambiguity here is not so much a question of what the surprises are, but whether they will affect PlayStation 3 owners.
Like lovers reunited, Sony and Valve are in heaven. Ever since their announcement at E3 that Portal 2 will be coming to the PlayStation 3- and that it will be the best console version available – we’ve had non-stop chat from Valve telling us how excited they are to be working with Sony.
Portal 2 was a surprise PS3 announcement at Sony’s E3 conference, and today from gamescom it has been revealed just when gamers can buy it.
