Next Generation ‘C7′ Corvette Unveiled – Will Be Available on GT5 Tomorrow

The Corvette line has been a staple of the American sports car industry since its debut in the 1950s. There have been six generations in all, and every one of them has made an appearance in the Gran Turismo series in one form or another. The next generation Corvette, the C7, will be no different.

[DLC Review] Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss

I’m a great fan of Dark Souls for so many reasons I can’t even quote them without making a huge paragraph about it, so if you’re actually interested in my opinion, you can read my review of it HERE. When Dark Souls was announced for PC, it also brought another piece of news that kindled my heart: the extra content would be available for PS3 users as DLC. Of course that was the only excuse I needed to get back into the game, and while preparing a new character (or in my case four) for the new challenges to come, I spent about another 100 hours playing this game, and that’s pre-DLC. Obviously, I was super excited about it, but what did I actually think? Read on and find out!

[DLC Review] Battlefield 3 – Armored Kill

It’s been just a little over 3 months since Battlefield 3 Premium was released to the public and although it was widely accepted by majority of the gaming community, the subscription package still had a fair bit of convincing to do in order to ensure it’s success.

Now, 3 months and 3 DLCs down the line, Battlefield Premium is reaping rewards and praise from Battlefield gamers everywhere. To date, we have seen the likes of the Back to Karkand, Close Quarters and the recent Armored Kill map packs being unleashed, with a further 2 more DLC packs (Aftermath and End Game) heading your way over the next 6 months or so.

Today, I’m going to focus on the latest DLC pack, currently released to Battlefield Premium players – Armored Kill.

E3 2012: LittleBigPlanet Karting and LBP Vita Trailers

I know, some of you think that LBP Karting is putting ModNation Racers on the backburner, but honestly, is that really a bad thing? As much creativity as you could put into ModNation Racers, it didn’t have the type of tools that the LittleBigPlanet series of games had. If you watch the E3 trailer for this, you’ll see how open the creation suite is for this karting game as well. If you’re into those types of racing games, I think you’re really in for a treat with this one. If the creativity of the user base in the platforming titles is anything to go by, I expect to see some ridiculous, over the top, and cool, tracks, karts, and weapons created by people. Remember those relentless shark levels in the first and second LBP? Imagine firing one of those things and watching it chase down that sack creature directly ahead of you. Also, preorders receive the Kevin Butler with Executive Golf Cart DLC for free!

As for LBP Vita, the game takes place in the world of Carnivalia. Of course, there will be Vita-specific tools and controls, which is an awesome way to utilize them. Not only that, but the game looks great. Almost like the original LBP. Level design seems inventive as always and, again, the user generated content will result in some top notch levels. Be sure to check the E3 trailer for that as well.

Also, something that is overlooked, but important in its own right, you’ll be able to do some cross platform play on LBP2 with the Vita and PS3 with the Cross Controller DLC. You can design levels on the PS3 and then switch to the Vita to use platform-specific tools. Even play the levels with one player on a Vita and others on the PS3. Check this out for an article describing an excellent example. Sound familiar?
