Guitar Hero 3 is broken

50°
344w ago - Sad but true folks. A design flaw with the new Les Paul controller means that it may be almost impossible to grab all of the achievements from the Xbox 360 version. And the PS3 version? It suffers the same problems apparently.

I've been a huge fan of the Guitar Hero series since it arrived on the 360 back in April this year. Incredibly frustrating to begin with, I soon learned that the only way to progress was the learn how to use the controller correctly. The Gibson X-Plorer guitar is possibly one of the most sturdy gaming peripherals I've ever owned, having been used daily since it's arrival (and really put through it's paces on some occasions!) it's never given me the slightest bit of bother. Having never attempted a multi-player game, I was eager to get Guitar Hero 3 on release to have two guitars available - it now seems that dream has been shattered too.

The new Les Paul controller certainly took a bit of getting used to, but with a little time it grew on me. I prefered the smaller form factor and the lighter feeling fret buttons to the more plastic feel of the previous guitar. Two player Guitar Hero was good to go - well, for a while anyway.

One evening, I noticed I was faring particularly badly. If you are anything like me, a bad night on Guitar Hero can be just a tad frustrating....
 

'Fortune' worth its weight in gold

345w ago - As I made my way through the beautifully lush jungles of "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" I couldn't shake an overwhelming sense of déjà vu. I was enjoying every minute of it, yet it all felt so familiar.

While dangling precariously from a cliff, timing my next jump, I thought of games like "Tomb Raider" and "Prince of Persia." As I ran and ducked behind cover so I could pop up take out my targets, I had visions of "Gears of War." And when the game's protagonist Nathan Drake complained about what a mess he'd gotten himself into, I thought back to Indiana Jones moaning about how much he hates snakes.

Spend even one hour with "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" and you're bound to have more flashbacks than an acid junkie.

Yet despite this, the game feels fresh and exciting. And though no one particular element of "Uncharted" stands out as being hugely creative or ground-breaking, everything fits together well to create one of the best titles for the PlayStation 3.

Players control treasure hunter Nathan Drake, the descendant of 16th century English privateer, navigator and slave trader Sir Francis Drake. Nathan manages to stumble upon Francis' diary, which purports to show the location of El Dorado, the city of gold. Along with his partner Victor Sullivan...

Heavenly Sword gets patched to 1.1

100°
345w ago - The PS3-exclusive action game, Heavenly Sword recently got a 1.10 patch. Right now, the contents of this 18MB download are mysterious.

It has been confirmed that DualShock 3 support has finally been added to the game, for those lucky enough to have imported the rumble-ready controller.

But, certainly the patch must hold other surprises. 18MB is a lot of data for just rumble alone ...
 

Rumor: Haze delayed again, by a further three months

50°
345w ago - Rumor has it that Haze for the PS3 has once again be delayed. The game was originally planned for a release in November 2007 but had recently been pushed back to January 2008.

However, there is a further recent twist in affairs as online retailers including Amazon and BestBuy online are indicating a release date for the title in the latter half of March.

To quote: Free Radical (GoldenEye/Timesplitters)'s highly anticipated next gen FPS, Haze, appears to have been delayed. Originally due out in November 07, the game was pushed back until January 08. Now, it looks like it has delayed further by 3 months. Several online retailers have confirmed this, such as Amazon.com and BestBuy.com, indicating a released towards the later half of March.

No doubt, this will serve as a disappointment to many. Haze was a highly anticipated PS3 title, boasting several innovative new features, and 4 player split screen co-op play. It also was set to be the first big PS3 exclusive of 2008. However, this delay may spell trouble for Free Radical - it puts Haze directly in the wake of SCEA's monster FPS, Killzone 2 (due out towards the end of February 08).
