Welcome to a new feature for PS3Blog.net. As many of you know, I’ve only owned a PS3 for a year (bought a slim console in November 2009) and thus, I had a list of several games I wanted to try for myself since I was a late owner and it’s been a while since Sony’s latest console materialized at retailers. This got me thinking about how there might be others that have either bought their PS3 in the last year or could have even just obtained theirs a couple of days ago, and that they might find this site (along with PS3trophies.org) and make it one of their “go to” destinations for everything PS3 related.
They won’t only need to know about the latest releases for their new console, as they would also like to get an idea about what games they should add to their collection… as well as what games to only rent and/or avoid. It’s with that in mind that I realized that by adding reviews for older games we could better provide them with an “experience” that caters to most of their information needs.
As you may remember the last time we saw our favorite villain Sordahon, he decided to cut the cord and follow his own destiny. But what’s to come of this misunderstood soul? Take a look at Episode V to find out.
Not to long ago Swords and & Soliders hit the PSN, and according to the Co-Founder of Ronimo Games it has had a great response. This 2D sidescroller was first released on the Wii back in the Summer of 2009 and it’s nice to see that they are always looking to introduce players to a new experience. When the game first released several weeks ago it was only playable with the DualShock controller. I am happy to report that the team has released a patch making the game playable with the PlayStation MOVE. Those of you who played it on the Wii will probably enjoy this game a lot more now that the MOVE has been added, especially since the MOVE’s tracking is so much better.
The team, also did some tweaking to the three factions but most importantly they made the Vikings slightly stronger in the endgame and the Chinese slightly slower to start with. They are hoping that with this they will see more players take to the Vikings. It’s really nice to see the MOVE being incorporated into games and even that much better to see it put into games that can actually pull it off.
Here is the video of me randomly picking the winner, Eden. Congratulations!! PM me your address and we’ll get it to sent to you right away.
Special thanks to Aubrey Norris of SouthPeak games for making this happen.
Also, stay tuned for another givaway coming real soon!
Nail’d will be available in stores tomorrow, November 30th. Hit the tabs for details on this amazing looking game, as well as its available Trophies.
Nail’d is an off-road ATVs and motocross bike racing game, that feature death defying unbelievable stunts and jumps.
nail’d is truly a hellish ride. No other racing game has ever featured such differences in altitude! Only those who master daring jumps into unknown depths at ultimate top speeds stand a chance to win the challenging action races in nail’d. Steep slopes, suddenly appearing obstacles and surprising turns in the track demand sharp reflexes, requiring players to give their all. Through its insane bursts of speed, nail’d will catapult you from one adrenalin boost to the next.
In a tournament, players will charge through diverse geographical track settings, e.g. between the redwood trees and sheer granite mountain faces of Yosemite National Park.
Players in nail’d get to choose between various vehicle classes, including motorbikes and quads. Once they have picked their wheels, it’s time to hit the track and prevail against challenging AI opponents. A compelling soundtrack by well-known bands helps to urge you on to do your very best.
Moreover, a multi-player mode allows you to secure one of the top ranks in the leaderboards of global online tournaments.
New copies of nail’d will include a token to download the DLC pack in the American market. nail’d, the world’s fastest off-road arcade racer, utilizes insane track design and unparalleled levels of speed to create a racing experience that delivers pure arcade fun.
nail’d’s DLC will include 4 new tracks, new vehicle paint jobs, a completely new set of vehicle parts for both bikes and ATVs and multiple new female and male driver suits. The DLC pack will also include a brand new game mode – Detonator – in which racers pass around ticking bombs before they explode. In keeping with nail’d’s mantra of thrilling competition, all of this content is available in both the single and multiplayer modes of the game. Finally, the DLC will include an extension of the Single Player Tournament with the “Bomb Cup”, which will include five new campaign events.
