Each week we ask ourselves three simple questions about what we’ve been playing over the past week. Between writing about PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, and talking about our feelings, how do we find the time to play games? We manage to make the time, but wouldn’t you like to know what we’ve been playing?
This week, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon invites guests from the gaming industry to show off some cool new games and toys. The NBC late night talk show starring SNL’s most notorious crack-up artist airs week nights at 12:35 PST/11:35 Central in the US. Can you laugh uncontrollably while watching someone unskilled play a game that you would rather be playing?
When PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was announced, people were quick to dismiss it as just another Smash Bros. clone; after all, it does feature many of PlayStation’s most notable franchise figureheads battling it out in an arena-style fighting game. After going hands-on with the game this past week at E3, we’ve realized that while it may appear similar to Nintendo’s brawler, it’s an entirely different beast.
It seemed like Ubisoft was content to end its brilliant E3 keynote on a chilled-out note with a cheerful eSports promotion with ShootMania. We already had the eye-catching Assassin’s Creed 3 and Far Cry 3, alongside some fan-pleasing footage of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Backlist and Rayman Legends. It was a solid performance, but it would have been an odd way to finish considering all the great stuff that we had seen.
Dead Space 3 was Electronic Arts big reveal of E3 this year, and the game introduces audiences to a whole new kind of Dead Space. The biggest news is that the game will feature drop-in/drop-out co-op, pairing Isaac Clarke with the newly introduced John Carver. Now that you’re no longer alone, questions arise as to whether or not Dead Space 3 can still deliver the same survival horror atmosphere as its predecessors.
This seems to be the year of the Canadian indie developer for PlayStation 3, as DrinkBox Studios showcases their newest SCEA “Pub Fund” baby with Guacamelee! DrinkBox describes the game as a co-op multiplayer “Metroid-vania style action-platformer set in a magical Mexican inspired world.”
Lately, the Medal of Honor franchise has been in the shadow of the FPS behemoth that is Call of Duty. 2010′s Medal of Honor reboot received generally positive reviews and Electronic Arts aims to eclipse that with Medal of Honor: Warfighter. To set the game apart from all of the rest of the war shooters in development, Warfighter introduces individual Tier-1 Operators that are crafted after real-world combat specialists. In the end, there will be 72 unlockable Operators from all over the world, each with their own unique skill set and weapons.
Not to be upstaged by Sony and Ubisoft, Electronic Arts has also had a strong showing at this year’s E3, as the likes of Dead Space 3, Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Crysis 3 are sure to excite gamers.
Our only complaint is that all of the games shown were sequels to existing franchises. Everyone loves a good sequel, but it would have been nice to see EA show off some new interlectual property. Well, that or Mirror’s Edge 2.
But we digress; on with the trailers…
It has to said that Ubisoft had a terrific conference at E3. This was partly because it was presented by comedienne Aisha Tyler, but mainly because the company has arguably the strongest lineup of games of all third-party publishers.
With blockbuster titles like Assassin’s Creed III, Far Cry 3, and the newly announced Watch Dogs, Ubisoft fans have a lot to look forward to over the next year and beyond. So, let’s get cracking with the trailers, shall we?
In the God of War series, Kratos has always ventured alone in his travels to destroy the gods. The upcoming God of War: Ascension introduces the franchise to an all-new multiplayer component that combines the brutality and bloodshed the games are known for with competitive eight player mayhem.
The E3 2012 Sony press conference was definitely the highlight of the day for us. There was a considerable about of clarity and new reveals to satisfy the palette for a little while. We can’t help it knowing that there is more to be revealed for PS3 and Vita from both Sony and the amazing developers at E3 in the days to come. If you missed the conference and don’t want to watch the replay, take a peak inside and grab the highlights here.
Sony announced before E3 that they would unveil the “future of PS Plus”, and that is exactly what they did during their keynote speech. It wasn’t quite as revolutionary as some of the rumours had predicted. There was no cloud streaming service announced, for example.
What we did get however, while not as headline catching, was fantastic news for all PS3 owners. As of today in the US and tomorrow in the UK, an Instant Game Collection will be available for all PS Plus members. This is an ever-expanding library of free games – worth over $260 (in the US at least).
Ubisoft has closed the doors on their 2012 E3 press conference and open the doors to a new Splinter Cell game on PlayStation 3. Coming spring 2013, can’t get any more tentative really, Splinter Cell: Blacklist aims to rectify the lack of Sam Fisher on our XMB toting blu-ray disc console. PS3 may not have had Conviction, but it will get a Blacklist.
The PS3 Attitude team is always hard at work writing the fabulous posts you enjoy reading so much. So how do we find the time to play the games we love? We do find time, we must. But wouldn’t you rather find out what we’ve been playing?
E3 is the biggest gaming event in the world, so it would be remiss of us not to bring you all the latest news from the show.
The event run from 5-7 June, but there will be plenty of announcements around these dates.
Castlevania was one of my highlights of 2010. It was a fantastic reboot of the series, offering an engrossing story, great voice acting and brilliant combat. So naturally the reveal of Lords of Shadow 2 has me bounding about with joy.
Note: spoilers ahead for those who haven’t finished Lords of Shadow 1.
It’s less than 24 hours now until the start of Sony’s E3 conference. The show will see Sony outline new games and services, and judging by a message on us.playstation.com, a new PlayStation Plus.
We’ve heard everyone list their top 10 most likely, most requested, or most wanted PlayStation characters for the upcoming PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Now lets talk about the PlayStation characters we don’t want to see. Wouldn’t it be funny if these characters made it into the game?
