Review: Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard for PS3

50°
311w ago - Who is Matt Hazard? This is a question that the majority of the gaming populace is going to inquire when they first get a glimpse at Eat Lead.

According to the front of the box this is his return to gaming, and unless you have been keeping tabs on the parody that publisher D3 has been creating with this title things could get confusing.

Eat Lead is a videogame that attempts to poke fun at the clichés of gaming while telling the story of a washed-up gaming legend that is finally getting a chance to make a comeback. What follows is a mess of poor game design, selective humor and some genuinely frustrating boss encounters.

As you can imagine you assume the role of Matt Hazard, a washed-up videogame superstar that was once the biggest name in interactive entertainment. Over the years your name becomes tarnished due to licensing it out to crappy spin-offs and of course the obligatory kart racing game.

Unfortunately for the company they have signed a lifetime contract with the fading star so he can simply sit back and enjoy his success without having to worry about anything. That is until a brand new CEO takes over the company and decides that it is time for Hazard to go. The plot revolves around Wally (the new CEO) and his mission to once and for all eliminate Hazard. Matt learns...

Since we last spoke some really cool things have come down the pipe. For starters our PlayStation Store destination went live and we have ton of awesome content hosted on it. There's a Red Alert 3 theme featuring the Soviet Commando, (and my personal favorite) Natasha, high res concept art from each faction, and our official trailer.

PS3 Dev: Sony PlayStation 3 Firmware Update 2.7 Hits This Month

200°
311w ago - Psyonix Studios developer Corey David let the cat out of the bag this week regarding upcoming PlayStation 3 firmware update 2.7.0.

In discussing a bug with the studio's game, Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, David let slip in a forum post that the update is scheduled for release later this month, to quote:

"I've been working with Sony trying to reproduce and solve the PSN sign-out issues some of you report.

Any info you can generate will be really helpful. Sony mentioned a bug they fixed with the next system software update (2.70) that might resolve these issues, but we have to narrow it down and verify it's the same problem to be sure it's that and not something we need to fix on our end.

IIRC it will drop later this month. And contain lots of fun new fixes. I'm excited about this one, lots of new stuff.

Though, I dont think I can mention any of them just yet.
-Psyonix-Corey"

It is not uncommon for developers to recieve advance copies of hardware updates so that they can ensure compatibility with their software. After the internet caught wind of the premature announcement the post was swiftly edited to remove any reference to the 2.7.0 release,...
 

God of War Anti-Hero Kratos May be Sony's PS3 Super Hero

50°
312w ago - Imagine Kratos, the angry, irate ghost of Sparta sitting toe and toe with Mario. What he lacks in cuteness he makes up for with broken limbs. Industry rumblings say many possible millions of God of War fans have not purchased a PlayStation 3, yet.

This would put Kratos in the role of a true system seller, he has been welcomed into over 7 million homes world wide. Sony's official God of War III press event really help put the buzz back on the right path as many fans were disappointed at the VGA awards teaser.

Nick Williams, an industry analyst, postulates that over 33% of God of War III potential buyer's do not own the PS3 console. Speaking to Gamasutra the marketplace guru said this:

The price point for the PS3 remains a real problem for Sony. Sony execs now find themselves in the precarious position of trying to balance consumer price expectations with the high costs of producing each PS3.

That said, the PS2's continued success more than eight years after launch suggests that Sony is thinking long term with the PS3. If Sony can continue to bring down hardware manufacturing costs, it seems likely that it will offer a price cut by the end of Summer 2009.

The launch of God of War III in late 2009/early 2010 will mark a pivotal moment for Sony. But in...
