it's a PS3 title. cause i heard that only on ps3 can you have innovative instantaneous weapon switching and revolutionary crab battles. amazing stuff. can't wait for this game.

well switching out charaters on the fly is nothing new... i for one was so hyped when i saw it at the conference but after playing it's better that what was shown... though it certainly doesn't pack the visual flare that heavenly sword does, It's a game i feel will probably come through as launch gets closer.... still this aint a system seller... so... i probably wont be buying this at launch.

Historical Games Need to be More Historical

Stephen Kelley of gamrFeed writes: "I’m not calling for game companies to stop making games with historical inaccuracies, but instead to take care not to overhype a false fact. The problem also exists in Hollywood where movie companies will say things like “this is the true story of [insert famous guy here]" and yet change a ton of stuff for the sake of the dramatic elements of the film."

I'm personally not a fan of over-realistic games, but I agree that the publisher shouldn't try to claim that their game is realistic.

PSM3 PS3 - "What we've played so far"

From PSM3: "Ridge Racer is a pleasant surprise. It's slick and slippery like a greased-up seal and the bright, chunky arcade visuals look stunning in HD. When it first arrived we almost flipped a lid – the menu was full of options! Woo! But, typically, you can only select one game mode (arcade) and one track (a jungle thing with lovely misty waterfalls). But what a track it is, with a shockingly-beautiful section going through a damp cave. The reflections are so good, you can almost see your own face in the puddles.

Resistance is punishingly difficult, but we like a challenge and the balls-out action and gorgeous set-pieces make it feel like a kind of sci-fi Call of Duty. The first level takes place in York town centre, leading eventually to a leafy area of Nottingham. We've always wondered what alien-besieged middle England would look like, and now we know – messy, covered in rubble and dotted with explosive barrels.

Lair plays a lot like ancient fantasy shooter Panzer Dragoon, but with tilt-sensitive controls. You have to jolt the pad towards enemies to attack them which is strange, but overall we're impressed. The dragons look magnificent. But, if we're honest, it's more of a graphics demo than an actual game at the moment. The lightweight tutorial involves barely any play and you spend most of your time floating about admiring the lighting effects, shadows and realistic-looking rocks.

Having played the original Genji a Hell of a lot, we felt instantly at home with Genji 2. Remarkably, despite the 'giant crab' horrors of E3, it's actually really fun to play. Amazing, fluid animation and a trio of varied characters you can switch to at any point during the level. Briliantly, THAT giant crab is in the demo we have, although we couldn't figure out how to flip it over for massive damage. Dang.

But our favourite is MotorStorm. We've had three versions of the demo and every time it gets better. The latest is absolutely mental, especially when you're crashing through squads of bikers in your buggy sending bodies flying everywhere. And the mud effects... crivens! The original demos looked great, but the latest one has added lots of nice touches including crowds of people on the tracks, more mud, more dynamic animations, better ragdoll physics and a much smoother frame rate."

Woohoo !!! Its really great that the devs are cramming as much and pushing as much as they can so close to launch!!!!!! Very excited with Motorstorm....Can`t wait to see the latest movies with all this kind of bells n whistles !!

The next gen of gaming is looking great!!

DixieNormS6412d ago

With MOtorstorm, Resistence, GOW, Lair, Cod 3, RSV, even with Spliner cell. It is an awsome time to be a gamer. PEES pants.

Seriously, the people at PSM3 like the PS3. Who would've thought they would like it, considering their paychecks are written by Sony.

VirtualGamer6412d ago

Actually they get money from the people who buy the magazine they publish. PSM3 is owned by Future who publish a broad spectrum of magzines including The Official Xbox Magazine.

So your comment is about as intellegent as saying IGN or Gamespot writers are paid by Sony.

gamer20086412d ago

but where are the play stations usually nice rpg line up? i wont get rfom and i wont get ridge racer well racing and shooters is out of that. is heavenly sword a launch title? i hope cause thats about the only game im probably getting for ps3. i love play stations 360 and wii.

the reason i don't say i like the company's is because all they want is the money they don't care about us customers.
