132w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a preview of FirstPlay Episode 32 today, which hits PlayStation Store this Wednesday.
To quote: This week - along with episode 32 of FirstPlay, which hits the Store this Wednesday, we've got an exclusive demo of life-swallowingly addictive boot-room sim Premier Manager. And that's just the start - let me guide you through what else we have in store.
Right underneath 'being eaten by dogspiders' and 'accidentally wearing crotchless chaps and no underwear to work', 'being invaded by Korea in the future' is top of my list of things I hope never happens.
So imagine how displeased I was to find that's exactly the plot of US-set occupation shooter Homefront, the tasty-looking blockbuster which we have a big preview of this week.
Alongside Homefront we're also going hands on with the sneaky, stabby online multiplayer of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, rounding up a slew (that's right, a slew) of recent releases, and taking a look at the lean, mean Predators on Blu-ray.
And that's not all. In Network Highlights this week we preview another beautiful apocalypse in upcoming PSN shooter Dead Nation, chat to Tim Schafer about the making of Costume Quest, interview Deus Ex: Human Revolution art director...
133w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared details on FirstPlay Episode 31 todya, which arrives this Wednesday on PSN.
To quote: Because this week on FirstPlay we've got a positively thumping HD review of new SingStar rival Def Jam Rapstar (which, despite our best efforts, they decided not to call BlingStar).
We've also got a preview of sleek smash 'em Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, and we zoom in for an extra close-up look at what we can expect from Bioshock Infinite when it's finally released in a thousand years. Or 2012. Whatever.
And there's loads more too. We've also got tips from the DJ Hero 2 team on how to spin your opponents into the ground in the game's competitive mode, a personal take from editor-in-chief Tim Clark on his addiction to PES 2011's Become A Legend mode, plus reviews of DeathSpank: Thongs Of Virtue, Vanquish, Front: Mission Evolved and Tumble.
Last but not least we have our screenshot galleries, which is where we tend to put our weirdest jokes and where this week you'll find Twisted Metal, Alice: Madness Returns, El Shaddai: Ascension Of The Metatron and Mindjack.
All of this can be yours for just 99p, or even less if you buy an £8.99 subscription to FirstPlay for 12 weeks. Which you definitely should, if you think...
133w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a video preview today of Qore Episode 30, which showcases Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Tron: Evolution, God of War: Ghost of Sparta and a visit with My Chemical Romance.
To quote: With the holiday calendar flying by faster than Ezio Auditore free running across rooftops in Firenze, November's Episode 30 focuses on the fantastic fun you don't want to miss this holiday season.
Of course, first up, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is this episode's lead story and in our preview Veronica Belmont spends some hands-on time with the game and talks to Ubisoft Missions Director, Gaelic Simard about this vastly expanded environment including vistas of Renaissance Rome in High Def along with the very cool game mode allowing players to recruit and deploy a posse of up and coming assassins.
With Kratos coming back to your PSP system in the new God of War: Ghost of Sparta tomorrow, Veronica sharpens her Blades of Athena to slice and dice her way through another larger-than-life God of War adventure.
Game Director Dana Jan explains the development team's approach to maintaining the grand scale and epic gameplay of a God of War...
134w 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.
135w ago - PlayStation Network Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi has shared a preview video of the Qore Episode 30 update featuring Ultimate Arqade today.
