Playstation 3 In 2008: The Hot 5 Games

50°
360w ago - The year is at a close, which means the Blend Games staff will gather this weekend to drink cheap whiskey and discuss gaming in 2007. At some point a list of our favorite games for the year will come out of the ordeal, but before we get to that it's time to look forward.

After all, it was nice playing Warhawk but it's no time to get complacent with our gaming. There's a brand new stack of titles just itching to be played. Hopefully none of them have any debilitating diseases that will require daily cream application.

2007 gave everyone a great year; everyone except Sony. Jack Tretton of SCEA has said in recent interviews that 2008 will be the year of the Playstation. With a bundle of new titles and many exclusives making their ways to the big George Forman Grill by Sony in 2008, they might be right. I'm not a gambling man, but I'm hoping that this year will bring people to hold their heads up high and say, "Yes! I own a PS3." Here are a few games that are a good start.

5. Final Fantasy XIII

So many people couldn't wrap their minds around the fact that this would be the first Final Fantasy game for the PS3 and not the non-existent remake of part seven. Still, Square Enix keeps making their lion's share of profit from the Final Fantasy stories. The first Final...

360w ago - Sega sent out an updated release schedule today which shows that the release of Condemned 2 will be facing a one month delay. The game was supposed to be released in February for but has now been pushed back to March 2008. No exact date was given.

In case you've forgotten what the game is all about: Players will assume the identity of Ethan Thomas, the former Serial Crimes Unit investigator, who's been called back to duty to track down his missing partner. As Ethan, players will engage in visceral combat using a variety of firearms, blunt instruments and an all-new fighting system complete with defensive and offensive combo chains. To help track the killer and solve the mysteries behind Condemned 2: Bloodshot, players will crack open an all-new set of high-tech forensic tools. Using wits and brute strength, murders can be solved in a number of different ways to keep players guessing throughout each suspenseful investigation.

The delay affects both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.
 

Project Origin- New Screenshots

200°
360w ago - From the looks of it, the Monolith team has done a great job at improving the lighting in the game and the textures look a lot crispier.

Of course, new weapons and new mini-bosses can be seen, but it's unclear which platform these screenshots have been taken (PC, Xbox 360 or PS3).

7 Ways Modern Games are Spoiling us

50°
361w ago - Before this generation, gaming gave us quite a bit of pain to suffer through before enjoying the pleasure. Nowadays, it seems as though we're being served everything we wished for on a silver platter. Here's seven new advances in gaming that have made us happier, yet lazier.

7- Open Worlds

Back in the 2D era, games would be filled with interesting backgrounds you never could quite reach. Knowing our car, no matter how well we raced it, would never get to that theme park in the distance, or that those gigantic blue mountains in Super Mario World were never going to be traversed kinda took the wind out of our sails. While there are still barriers and deceptive backgrounds being used in games today, there are quite a few games that let us explore every nook and cranny of gigantic virtual worlds. Now how about letting us bust down doors instead of searching for stupid keys?!

6- Online Matchmaking

The history of multiplayer gaming goes as such--early gamers had to suffer through actual interaction with friends, most of which played at a much different profieciency level as you. Fast forward a few years to the dawn of internet gaming; back then most people had dial-up internet connections and the process of playing a game online went something like this: Call friend on the land-line...
 

Square Enix Tries to Hide First Star Ocean IV Trailer

50°
361w ago - Odd, and entirely true; Square Enix put a trailer for the new installment of their much-loved series online - and then tried to prevent fans from getting to it.

It seems you're only worthy enough to see the video if you are both a registered SE member and have a serial number from the Star Ocean 1 remake on PSP- which was only released today, in Japan. Plus, there's no scheduled European or North American release date.

All that effort, just for a trailer? If there's method to this madness, then we don't see it. Good thing some bright spark went and youtube'd it. There's nothing on show in terms of plot or game mechanics, but it's gorgeous enough to set your tongues wagging at any rate.
