Amazon have launched their video game deal of the day for April 1st.
Electronic Arts has announced a number of server closures in the coming months, including Apex Mobile and the 2012 Syndicate reboot.
What online functionality did Shadows of the Damned even have?
My thoughts exactly! Some kind of score chart I've forgotten about?
Syndicate's big saving grace will soon be erased for good. I'll give *some* credit to EA in keeping servers up for 10+ years.
Oh yeah, an actual cyberpunk game. I have fond memories of the old bullfrog Syndicates.
Syncidate was fun ong
Syndicate was a fun and high quality late PS3 fps that got swallowed in the sea of fps at the time. It was short and it didn't innovate but it had good visuals and fun combat. Starbreeze i believe. Rip Torn and Rosario Dawson.
The PS3 era was a happy time, so let's look back on some of its games that flew well under the radar.
Alice Madness Returns
One of my favourite games. I played all the games in the list, it is a good list but there were plenty of other overlooked gems. Several have been remastered now e.g. Catherine, Red Faction, Kingdoms of Amalur. Some more you could add, Space Marine, Singularity, Killer is Dead, and a whole bunch of indies like Deathspank, Critter Crunch, The Last Guy.
Viking: Battle for Asgard
Haze is the greatest PlayStation 3 game to ever launch, it took first person shooting to a whole new level. Just shocked it never got a remake on PlayStation 5.
Sad that the team behind Dante inferno did not get their chance to finish the story. They had two other games planned
Did they? It’s been so long I’ve sadly forgotten most of the ending.
A decent list, I would add Black Knight Sword, Hard Corps: uprising
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Remember Me Folklore Tales of Graces f 3D Dot Game Heroes The Darkness
..and Darkness 2 .. I personally loved it much more than first
Enslaved is a terrible port on the PS3 mind you, it's a great game though. But the PS3 version is....brutally ass. I wish I opted for the 360 version when I played trough it a few years back lol.
You still can. It plays and looks great on xbo / series.
There’s some gems in the list but as far as “should play” MAG would be in a “should’ve played” for sure
Indeed. A bit hard to play a game that was entirely online with shutdown servers. A shame that it went from a game that could have been remembered for what it was, and instead is remembered as a poster child for why you should be wary of entirely online games.
I enjoyed it while it lasted, thoroughly. I had the most kills with my knife, I’d sneak ALL game, destroying AA batteries 🔪 Too bad the industry hadn’t figured out how yet to support online games long term with additional content and MTXs.
Heck yes. MAG was one of the most satisfying fps I've ever played. Definitely miss it!
I thought out of all the ps eras ps1 ps2 ps3 ps4 that ps3 was the worst. It had great games dont get me wrong but the variety of great games dont match ps1 ps2 and ps4. Ive also lived through all these eras. Ps3 and video games in general were just way to overloaded with fos games. Hardly any jrpgs released on it compared to the other systems.
Great gen... Warhawk for me was the online game i could keep coming back for more
No PS3 list is complete without Resistance
PS3 was the worse genration
Same thing i said and it got crushed with disagrees. Most of the best ps3 games have been made on ps4. Even without the ports the ps3 was the worst of the sony consoles. Must be a bunch of younger people on here to believe it wasnt.
