Sony Previews FirstPlay Episode 30, Arrives Wednesday on PSN

50°
223w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview of FirstPlay Episode 30 today, which arrives this Wednesday on PSN.

To quote: The blood dripping down the walls and the sickly aroma of toffee apples can only mean that it's Halloween.

Or at least that it's close enough to Halloween for us to make episode 30 of FirstPlay, up on the Store from this Wednesday, into a spooky special.

That means we're previewing the hottest upcoming PS3 horrors including F.3.A.R. and Shadows Of The Damned, checking out the meanest video nasties on the PSN Store, and playing through three of your scariest LittleBigPlanet levels.

And we've also got a special feature asking the FirstPlay and Official PlayStation Magazine teams to talk about their scariest ever gaming moments.

Not Halloween-themed but just as scary is our review of grappler sequel WWE Smackdown! Vs Raw 2011, and we've also got our verdict on Fallout New Vegas, an in-depth interview with FreeStyleGames about the making of their hip-hop hit DJ Hero.

And there's more - our regular galleries, including the bloodiest screenshots we could find, and a reviews round-up - and it all comes for just 99p, or less if you buy an £8.99 subscription for 12 weeks.

Enjoy! And have a wicked...

To quote: As one of the founders of [Register or Login to view links], Jamie King has been in the videogame industry about as long has PlayStation has. He's one of the people responsible for bringing us such series as Grand Theft Auto, Max Payne and Midnight Club.

Now a resident of New York City, he is President and Chief Creative Officer of [Register or Login to view links] and will soon be launching Def Jam Rapstar in collaboration with Def Jam Records. I recently caught up with him in London to talk about the new venture.

How did the relationship with Def Jam Records come about?

Our EVP, Paul Coyne, came over from Warner Music and he already had a working relationship with Def Jam. They had an existing game deal but when that expired I got to go over and meet Kevin Liles - apparently I was one of the first people to ever dance in the Def Jam offices, weirdly enough.

I told them that I knew how to handle Def Jam in the game space and I took them through some of the potential that I saw, and we arrived at the idea to create a karaoke game based on Def Jam music.

We were very...

50°
224w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview of FirstPlay Episode 29 today, which hits PlayStation Store on Wednesday of this week.

To quote: This week I fell over playing football and hit my head on a brick, which, it turns out, meant I had to spend ages lying down and playing the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta. What's that, boss? No, still not quite better...

That's a true story, by the way, and absolutely the thing I'll be blaming my regular typos on this week. The good news is that it also means episode 29 of FirstPlay, out on the Store this Wednesday, features an in-depth look at what the insanely talented LittleBigPlanet community have been making with the tools from the upcoming sequel.

We've also got one last look at the awesomely frantic sci-fi shooter Vanquish before it's released this Friday, plus a review of the PS3-exclusive HD update of classic shooter Medal Of Honor: Frontline, which comes packaged with the new game's Limited Edition, and a review of Robin Hood on Blu-ray.
