  • PSN Says Sorry

    So the PlayStation Network is set to relaunch and they’ve been sending out sorry emails. I got one yesterday with a link to their blog explaining that I can choose 2 free PS3 games from the PlayStation Store, here’s the choice – LittleBigPlanet InFamous WipEout HD/Fury Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty Dead Nation You […]

  • Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword Out Now

    I loved Mount & Blade, sure it’s rough around the edges but it’s so damn addictive and the good news is the new installment is out now. I’m not sure how the transition to guns and and a more realistic historical background is going to go but I’ve got my copy downloaded from Gamers Gate and […]

  • L.A. Noire

    L.A. Noire

    How about a 40s crime thriller set in Los Angeles? L.A. Noire hits PS3 and Xbox 360 in a couple of weeks. A spot of detective fiction with a noir backdrop could be fun even with an extra e in the title. Rockstar are publishing but it’s developed by first timers Team Bondi, although they […]

  • Call of the Dead

    Is CoD an ailing franchise? I think probably not but as I’ve said before there’s nothing that can’t be improved with a liberal sprinkling of zombies. Enter the new DLC for CoD Black Ops Escalation zombie mode. Inspired by, and apparently starring, George A. Romero, the godfather of the genre along with horror legends like […]

  • PSN Breach

    So Sony is seriously under fire after the PlayStation Network breach. With 75 million users the prospect that personal data including names, email addresses, postal addresses, birthdays, user names and log in passwords may have been stolen is obviously cause for concern. Worse is the possibility, which they can’t yet rule out, that credit card […]

  • Swiss Gaming Ban

    The Swiss have apparently tightened their laws surrounding age restricted games so that youngsters need ID to buy them. It also means any game without a PEGI rating can’t be sold at all. Apparently there is now talk of an outright ban of all mature videogames. I would seriously hate to be Swiss. Even before […]

  • Sony Move vs Microsoft Natal

    I knew Sony were bringing out a motion controller of some kind but Jesus it really does look like a bit too close to the Wiimote doesn’t it? It’s apparently lighter, perhaps slightly more ergonomic and it definitely looks better but still. Looks like the next big fight is a match up between the Sony […]

  • Sony Strikes Back

    As the console war continues to escalate Sony are really sticking it to the competition….. better late than never. Since announcing the price cut and the new slim version of the PS3 they have shifted over 1 million units worldwide. Microsoft were quick to announce their own price cut to keep the Xbox 360 in […]

  • Too Late for Kurt Cobain in GH5 but we can stop Ant and Dec Game

    The use of Kurt Cobain’s likeness in Guitar Hero 5 has caused a fairly big uproar. His old band mates from Nirvana have condemned it and more recently Jon Bon Jovi weighed in agreeing with Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic that it is distasteful. Cobain’s ex naturally came out and had a moan as well […]

  • PS3 and iPlayer

    The recent tweaks made by the PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.0 update may not have blown your socks off but there is one addition that is proving super popular here in the UK. Since they added the BBC iPlayer link to the XMB the PS3 now accounts for 10% of all iPlayer usage. Macs only account for […]
