Oh, brother where art thou? In Hell, you say? Well I had better slay every man, beast and God that stands in my way to rescue him then. God of War is back on the PSP in the form of Ghost of Sparta and it looks to test the capabilities of the handheld so hard that it threatens to rip it apart like one of Kratos’ many enemies. But does GOS push the series in any new directions or has the GOW started to stagnate after the recent PS3 epic?
Hydravision has released Funky Lad Rat exclusively on the PSN both in Europe and the US, a very special game in time for the Christmas rush. The story for the game is simple: a lab rat breaks a container thus having access to some miraculous pills which allows said rat to grow super smart while, at the same time, gaining power over time and space in a funky way… or at least that’s what I got after watching the starting cut-scene. This is a physics-based puzzle game, and we all know that a good puzzle game does NOT need a storyline. And a good puzzle game this is.
Here’s the trailer so you can better understand what I’ll be talking about:
Dead Nation, brought to you by Housemarque, who also brought us Super Stardust HD, is a dual-analog zombie apocalypse game that puts you in control of either Jack McReady or Scarlett Blake. Both characters have been bitten and are immune to the zombie virus and are some of the last remaining alive. You go around using the analogs, obviously, and kill thousands, and I mean thousands, of zombies with a variety of different weapons and techniques. Or you can join up with a partner in either online mode or with another controller in Co-op mode to blow those zombies apart.
SingStar Guitar is currently only available in AUS and EU as a disc, or as a DLC from the PSN. As of SingStar update version 5.0, at least in EU and AUS, the availability of playing a guitar is there, even without purchasing SingStar Guitar. You will, however, need to purchase guitar compatible tracks, or guitar upgrades for songs already owned. With that in mind, SingStar Guitar is basically just a new SingStar title with the standard “30 new songs”, that are all guitar compatible.
A week ago I got my grubby hands on The Fight: Lights Out (regards to Trev & Tosh for hooking me up with a promo copy). With me being heavily into sports and somewhat liking UFC etc, I wanted to get involved in the sport without physically getting battered and bruised – so, what better way to do this than play a game of The Fight: Lights Out.
I always seemed to think I was a pretty athletic/fit person due to the amount of sports I used to play, however I don’t think I was prepared for what I was about to encounter.
[tab:PS3Blog Double-Header Review]
Today’s review will be a double-header featuring EyePet and Invizimals: Shadow Zone for the PSP. Both games incorporate the use of the official PSP camera attachment and are both augmented reality games.
Having a little experience on the PS3 Eye, I had some foreordained expectations that may not have been completely fair. I fully expected the camera to work as shown, however, I expected lag, lighting issues, blurry images…all of which I did not get. The camera was quick, precise and quite clear. Not one time did I have to move to the perfect lighting scenario or some large flat surface to get the games to function. With that said, the price, picture quality, and picture options are fairly large cons just for the PSP camera alone for general picture taking.
Hardware aside, read on for the individual game reviews.
You know you have a real winner on your hands when a game says “Attempt 72” and you haven’t gotten overly frustrated. Such was the case with the PSN title, Joe Danger. Developed by Hello Games, a team consisting of four people. It puts you in control of the washed up has-been of a stunt rider, Joe Danger. In this game, your overall goal is to bring him back to his status as a legendary stunt man on the biggest comeback tour of his life. And what a ride it is.
ModNation Racers is a Playstation exclusive looking to do for kart racers what LittleBigPlanet did for platformers. With numerous customisations available from driver and car designs to constructing tracks, all of which can be shared online. There’s plenty on offer from ModNation Racers but is it king of the mods or just another kart game?
