Ratchet and Clank: QForce – known as Full Frontal Assault overseas – is finally making it’s way to PlayStation Vita. It released last November on PS3 and those who already own it will be able to access the Vita version free due to Sony’s cross-buy deal featured on the title.
Come join us once a week where we prove that our spare time isn’t entirely consumed by pounding away at a keyboard, but also by mashing the buttons of our DualShock 3s and Vitas. What games have we been playing? What cool adventures have we been on this week? It’s PlayTime!
After being pushed back to January from its original November release date, the Vita version of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault (known as QForce in Europe) has been delayed again. The new release date is only a vague ‘Spring 2013’.
We’ll be the first to admit that we were extremely disappointed by last year’s Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, which felt like a real misstep for the franchise. But then earlier this year the HD Trilogy came along, to remind us of exactly why we fell in love with R&C in the first place. So can Ratchet & Clank: QForce also rekindle our fondness for the series, or is it another All 4 One?
So-called gaming ‘innovations’ normally disappear after a few short months, but occasionally they strike a real chord with players and stand the test of time. We’ve compiled a list of five genuine innovations that have truly revolutionised gaming, and show no signs of going away. And no, this article doesn’t include motion controls or instrument-shaped dust collectors.
Ah, Sixaxis. Remember that? Sony pushed this motion-sensing technology in a big way before the launch of the PS3, but then Lair came out and everyone decided it was the worst thing in the world. That said, there are some good uses of the Sixaxis out there, so let’s take some time to remember them; to be honest we initially struggled to get to five, but we got there in the end!
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.
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.
Amazon.com has started tell potential buyers of eligible Cross Buy PS3 titles that it comes with a voucher code for the PS Vita version. Will this help or hurt Amazon’s business?
The PS3 and PS Vita have seen a handful of Cross Buy titles (purchase one version of a game, get the other for free) in the last few months, including MotorStorm RC and the recently released (and brilliant) Sound Shapes, but up until now they’ve all been relatively small PSN games, not full retail titles. Well, that’s all set to change later this year.
Every generation, Sony takes one of its biggest franchises and turns it into a kart racer; on PSone it was Crash Bandicoot, on PS2 it was Jak and Daxter, and on PS3 it will be LittleBigPlanet. Kart racers are often looked upon with contempt by many gamers, because it normally signals the end of a console generation, and a refocus towards a more casual audience.
However, they also (usually) happen to be bloody good fun, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take a look at which other games we’d like to see given the kart racing treatment.
In November, the Ratchet & Clank series will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary. To commemorate this milestone, Sony has released The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy, which is now available in Europe and features HD versions of the three original PS2 games on one Blu-Ray disc. But with four games in the franchise already available on PS3, is it worth going back to see where it all started?
Introducing a new weekly feature, in which PS3 Attitude takes an irreverent* look at the world of gaming. Today we’re discussing five sequels that, if we had our way, would never have seen the light of day; although, in a way we’re glad they did, because otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to write this article.
*At least 37% of the following is probably incorrect.
Insomniac Games has officially released the full trophy list for the HD remakes of Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal for all you budding trophy collectors.
Last year, PS3 Attitude brought you Pure Platinum, our guide to the best classic games on the PlayStation 3. In the PAL region, if a game sells at least 400,000 copies, then it qualifies for Sony’s Platinum range, giving it a swanky new case and, more importantly, a big price cut.
Since our first Pure Platinum feature, many more AAA games have joined the range, so, with December just around the corner, we thought it was about time we updated the list, in the hope of helping new PS3 owners sort out their Christmas lists.
The PlayStation Network has come a very long way in the last five years.
Believe it or not, there was a time when merely a handful of games were available on the PlayStation Store, and only a fraction of those were actually worth playing. However, nowadays, Sony’s online service is full to bursting with quality titles that have no doubt had your virtual wallet begging for mercy on more than one occasion.
While you may not be familiar with the name Michael Bross, chances are you’ve probably heard his work. As an award winning composer, he has worked on multiple video games including Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee and …
Award-winning composer Michael Bross will be tasked with creating the soundtrack for the upcoming Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, Insomniac Games announced yesterday at their Community Day.
Bross has previously worked on the soundtracks for videogames Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath and Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee, in addition to blockbuster films such as Black Dahlia and Ripper. The soundtrack for All 4 One will contain over four hours of original music by Bross, who has been a fan of the series for many years now.
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’?
