158w ago - Today the Red Dead Redemption official launch trailer arrives, with the video game hitting both the PS3 and XBox 360 on May 18, 2010 in North America and May 21, 2010 in Europe.
Red Dead Redemption gives the player a large, open world environment allowing the player to move freely. Players on foot can walk, talk, shoot, kill, ride, run, interact with the environment, and combat enemies with firearms.
Different breeds of horses are the main forms of transportation. Swimming is not an option, as the protagonist John Marston cannot swim and will drown if the player ventures too far into a body of water (though he is able to wade where the water is shallow enough).
The open world environment allows players to choose how they want to play. Storyline missions are for progress. Along with the main storyline, players can take part in random events they encounter as they explore the West.
These include public hangings, ambushes, pleas for assistance, and dangerous animal attacks. Players can also take part in optional side activities ranging from standoffs, gambling, and hunting fauna for pelts and meat.
Finally, Red Dead Redemption makes use of a morality system where players have the ability to gain positive or negative 'honor'. Some of the ways to gain positive honor include...
158w ago - Video game Producer Chris Parry has announced that Skate 3 for PS3 is rolling into shops today along with sharing a video trailer and extending an invitation to EA's launch party, as follows:
The Skate franchise is back and rolling into some sick new territory with the release of SKATE 3 for the PS3.
There's tons of new stuff for Skate fans to get stoked on - a whole new city to skate, innovative new team and co-op gameplay, new difficulty modes that enable you to skate exactly how you want, and for the first time in Skate, a Create A Park feature that will change the way the game is played.
If you're new to the world of Skate, don't sweat it because we've added Skate.School, a fun place to session where you can learn the ins and outs of skating as taught by Coach Frank - this weirdly hilarious and oxymoronic "skateboarding coach" played by legendary pro skater and actor, Jason Lee.
Your mission in SKATE 3 is to start a skateboard company and sell boards. Sell enough boards and you'll unlock four huge skateparks and plazas that are also "create a parks" with all sorts of varied and super fun terrain to play with.
The dev team is especially proud of Skate 3's commitment to blurring the lines between...
166w ago - Naughty Dog's Community Strategist Arne Meyer has announced today news of an Uncharted: Eye of Indra Motion comic bundle alongside Rika and Pinkerton skins set to launch on April 1, 2010.
To quote: Since the UNCHARTED: Eye of Indra motion comic series was released on the PlayStation Store late last year, we've gotten a ton of questions asking if the Rika Raja and Daniel Pinkerton multiplayer skins - which were made available in Europe as part of a bundle - would soon be available to our community in the US and other parts of North America.

And, above all else, prove their physical strength across epic challenges and gameplay ability in a battle against Hades from God of War III. In the end, only one titan will be left standing - the one who best embodies the characteristics of Kratos,...
