i get so many questions from new ps3 owners: what ps3 games should i get? game stores want you to buy the most possible, of course. very few big box stores will tell you that a game is a waste of your time. truth to be told, a lot are. or rather, what seems like a great idea is poorly executed. we aren’t singling you out, turning point: fall of liberty, but if you feel guilty we all understand.
now, i should say that there’s nothing wrong with having all sports titles on your shelf, or only shooters. however, in my experience, many gamers like variety. and as we know, it’s the spice of life.
what i’ve done here is given a list of games every ps3 owner should have on the shelf. most can be obtained cheaply, which is nice too. some are also exclusive to the playstation, and they’ve been marked with an asterisk.

omfg europeans are so effing clever. SO. CLEVER. they’ve taken their brains and fused them with their knowledge of the ps3’s xmbl and given us an easy guide on how to create ps3 themes ourselves.
this method, of course, is far preferrable to the fumbling around in the dark we were all going to get into eventually.
read the ‘create your own ps3 themes‘ article.
a while back, we wrote that sucker punch was a lot more interested in fucking up a good thing than they were in keep the integrity of the game. sucker punch originally had changed cole mcgrath, but they’ve now decided to change that school of thought. basically, since the game is still in development there’s not a ton of details, but we do know that they’re changing cole back to the guy we know and love. ign has given us a shitload of details [read ign’s infamous 2 details].
if they actually stick to this, it may mean i buy it!
ps: guess what, xbitches? we still have the exclusive.
infamous compared to infamous2. many, after having seen some hd screens, would argue there simply is no comparison. those of us playing attention to this shit know one thing: they changed cole mcgrath. we wanted an answer. we wanted an explanation. then it turned out sucker punch had been talking… but it wasn’t good.
play-mag, out of the uk, apparently sat down with the developers recently and bring us this:
“Speaking exclusively to Play at its Seattle studio base, Sucker Punch has admitted that it made mistakes in how it made inFamous, but has learnt from them and made significant improvements for inFamous 2. Development director Chris Zimmerman revealed that the studio is now very familiar with the PS3 hardware and is fully prepared to exploit it to make inFamous 2 look the best it can.”
what the fuuuck? they aren’t apologizing for messing up a beloved character?
“We made some really dumb decisions in the last game, but we’ve managed to fix them,” he told us. “It was pretty early on that we knew what we weren’t doing in inFamous that we needed to do in inFamous 2, but we had to tear a whole bunch of stuff up and put it back together. In technical terms the biggest thing that we’ve done is migrate a much larger part of our code to run on the SPUs. The PS3 has this elaborate architecture where there’s a whole bunch of different places you can have your code run and we had it all running in the slow part.”
ok, we KNOW you made some dumb decisions. you tore up cole fucking mcgrath and wrecked his shit. now you’re talking about ‘elaborate architecture’ like any of us are supposed to give a damn?
“By sussing out the hardware Sucker Punch believes it has a game that could never be achieved on another console. “If you look at games like Uncharted 2 that’s a game that you actually can’t do on Xbox no matter how clever you are, there’s just more processing power on the PS3,” Zimmerman explained. “inFamous 2 is going to be the same way. You’ll look at it and see that there’s no way we could have done this game on 360.””
OH COME ON. utlizing the full processing potential of the ps3 is no excuse! why did you CHANGE THE CHARACTER?
fuck. people are dumb.
ok, so a while ago, we brought you the story that david jaffe was being a weird little bastard. we wrote that he was heard laughing manically outside his house over the twisted metal rumours. at the time, they were false, and people everywhere were pretty bummed out.
now, we bring you an update. he’s still laughing manically [he lives alone, so we hope he gets help for that really soon], but it turns out there IS actually a twisted metal game coming for ps3. it will be a ps3 exclusive, which is a big deal. it will also be called ‘twisted metal explosion’. playstationlifestyle has a buttload more details, but there you have it.
in an interesting twist, mr. jaffe was being ironic by releasing said details through his twitter account. i am all for mindfucking, but even i turn up my nose at this behaviour.
