While some franchises simply refuse to go away, others seriously struggle to make the leap into multi-game territory. This can be for a number of reasons, but usually comes down to poor sales, regardless of how popular the game is among those who played it. This week, we’ve been discussing the likelihood of whether or not we’ll see a sequel to five of our favourite PS3 games.
As you’re well aware, our fearless leader will be running one of the toughest 10k obstacle courses in the country. Not only that, but he’ll be doing it all for charity. So far we’ve managed to raise a little more than £200 for GamesAid, PS3 Attitude’s charity of choice. We know we can do better than that, though. So, how about a little incentive to encourage donations?
We’ve scoured through the PS3 Attitude offices and contacted our loyal developer friends and have gathered up some awesome prizes that include video games, t-shirts, download codes, and a whole lot more.
Here’s what we have gathered so far and what you have to do for your chance to win…
Rage has given us one of our most enjoyable singleplayer experiences of the year, and we said as much in our in-depth review last week. This week, however, we’re focusing on multiplayer and trying to decide if Rage is as much fun with company as it is alone.
There is a point in Rage when it stops being a solid FPS and becomes a great one. That moment occurs about two or three hours in, just when our recent hands-on preview ended.
Up to that point, we had been ushered down narrow paths and asked to do routine objectives. It was a confident and accomplished introduction to the game, and it did give us a good grounding for what was to come later, but it felt like it was keeping a tight rein on us.
RAGE has arrived PS3 fans and we’ve got the trailer to prove it.
Rage, the first major project id Software has undertaken since 2004’s Doom 3, is out very soon, and PS3 Attitude has been getting hands-on with it.
Continuing with their series of behind the scenes looks at RAGE the developers at id Software discuss the themes, inspirations and innovations that will hopefully make the world of RAGE one of the most awe-inspiring the industry has ever seen. They’d also like to let you in on how a certain character from The Big Lebowski made his way into the game.
As the release of RAGE draws nearer Bethesda Softworks and id Software thought it prudent to give us all a more in-depth look at the game’s more plot focused intricacies. Time to get acquainted the oppressive might of the ‘Authority’ and undying will of the ‘Resistance’.
If you haven’t been paying close attention, id Software’s RAGE is fast approaching release. We’ll be descending into the post-apocalyptic wasteland this October (4th US/7th UK).
In perfect lockstep with the prototypical elements of the genre which id itself spawned in the early 90’s, RAGE will include a devastating array of weapons to arm yourself with. The development team would like to introduce you to the selection of tools at your disposal.
If you’ve got eight minutes (technically 7:50, the extra 10 seconds are your prerogative) to spare there are much worse ways to spend it than watching gameplay footage from one of the industry’s most widely anticipated games. Enjoy this extended look at id Software’s RAGE.
It makes us supremely happy when publishers ditch their clinically edited promos for a good old fashioned gameplay video. Don’t get us wrong, we get hooked in by cliffhanger shots every time, but they don’t reveal much about how the game plays. Agree?
Thankfully, Bethesda agree. If you want to see what the gameplay is actually like for Rage, the upcoming FPS from id Software (the guys credited with inventing the genre), check out this latest footage. It’s raw, aggressive and damn well unedited: it’s just how we like it.
Take a trip if you will to the Wasteland. A post-apocalyptic world characterized by lawlessness and abject violence. As gamers this is familiar world to an extent.
What we haven’t seen is id Software’s take on the idea. The word ‘famed’ hardly seems to encapsulate the studio that created the first-person shooter. Derivative isn’t exactly their style. Check out their newest trailer and screenshots.
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’?
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 the first thirty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing the next ten.
Further proof that Bethesda are positioning themselves as a strong publisher as well as developer of games, news hit the trades yesterday that id Software’s upcoming shooter RAGE will now be published by the ZeniMax company, ousting original publisher EA in the process.
With all the furore about frame-rates, the benefit of BD textures and other technical issues, we’ve kind of lost sight of what id’s Rage is actually all about. Mutants – and the mass killing of them.
Check out the below footage from a new trailer of Rage showcased at the currently underway QuakeCon.
Warning: bring spare pants.
Proving that when it comes to where (or more accurately when) to set your game there’s nothing quite like blasted buildings and destroyed cities, id Software will keep the post-apocalyptic torch burning with upcoming big hitter Rage.
Revealing a new website today, we get a fresh glimpse at what the enigmatic studio famous for such FPSs as Doom and Quake have planned with their new property.
