dissidiademo3

To my own amazement, the Dissidia demo hit PlayStation Network at the end of June, and somehow missed my attention for almost two weeks (that’s what finally starting Mass Effect does to you). Needless to say, the moment my eyes found the PSP demo available my bandwidth immediately went towards downloading 76 megabytes of glorious fan service.

While Dissidia has been available in Japan for a while now, and others, including Gamer Limit’s own Christoper Matulich and Chris Carter, have demoed the game via E3 and other similar conventions, this demo was my first hands-on experience with the game. Find out more about Dissidia after the jump.

Tekken 6 overload

Tekken 6

With a significant amount of highly anticipated games being released in the coming months, you could be forgiven for overlooking a few great titles. Rocking back and forth in your recliner, eagerly awaiting Modern Warfare 2 or Assassin’s Creed 2 is exhausting business. However, there is another end of year release that most hardcore gamers won’t want to miss.

Tekken 6 may have been out since November 2007 at your local Japanese arcade, but console gamers have yet to enjoy the fighting pleasure in their homes. Namco Bandai have been kind enough to give us a few little treats in the way of three gameplay videos and a gallery of screenshots.

Hit the jump to check them out.

Modern Warfare 2

It seems that Activision have hit the big time in terms of expected sales for 2009. Their highly-anticipated sequels, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 have apparently broken pre-sale records, with both titles sitting in the company’s top five pre-ordered games of all time.

And after realizing that Activision has been around for almost thirty years, it becomes even more of an incredible achievement.

We all love pre-order perks, and today it has been revealed that the long delayed Gran Turismo PSP is the latest to receive some parting gifts. This promotion entitles you to download one of five cars, available in an exclusive colour, through a voucher system, including the Lamborghini Countach and the ballistic Bugatti Veyron. This marks a significant milestone however, as neither manufacturer have been present in any Gran Turismo game of the past, much to the outcry of fellow fans.

The inclusion of these manufacturers is also a hopeful indication of what is yet to come in Gran Turismo 5 – with Ferrari and Lamborghini secured, will we finally be seeing Porsche make its belated debut?

The full list of available cars along with some screenshots can be found after the break.

iphone

Until recently, I thought the idea of the iPhone as a portable gaming platform was a laughable matter at best.  Without any type of real control scheme, a weak processor, and a poor selection of games, how would it ever be able to compete with the likes of the DS or the PSP?  As far as I was concerned, it would never be popular enough for it to make any type of significant impact on the gaming industry.

Then something completely unexpected happened that changed everything and caused me to question all of the previous reservations I had about the iPhone as a portable gaming device.  Read on to find out more about this major break-through I had, and why I’m starting to change my mind. Read more… »

Known for their extreme strength, and undeniably strong appetite for evil the heroes and villains of the Final Fantasy universe are some of the most over-powered video game icons.

What do you get when you combine the largest sword ever, tons of fireballs, a black hole, ice, arrows, and a kick to the face? Well the highly anticipated Final Fantasy Dissidia of course! This latest brawler from Square-Enix includes sixteen heroes and thirteen villains ranging from Final Fantasy I to Final Fantasy XII. The complete list is looking rather exciting…

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2

According to Lee, his likeness is a character that is “signifigant to the games storyline”, but no further details were given.

When the PSPgo was revealed “at E3″, many gamers were disappointed to see that a second analogue wasn’t included. While the PSP and its newer iterations have managed to get by this long with just one, it would perhaps be far more beneficial for gamers and developers alike to be offered what appears to be the standard for this generation’s gameplay mechanics.

So why no second nub? (who has ever called it a nub?) Hit the jump, then use the nub on your mouse to scroll down and read what Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Worldwide Studios, recently told Game Informer.

It’s not often that you see an article on a gaming site about the popular Swedish metal band Opeth, that is unless the band accidentally leaks that a Saints Row game is coming to PSP. How did Opeth slip up? They posted an announcement on their site celebrating that one of their songs has been chosen for the game.

The post reads: “We may not like playing video games all that much but we do like it when our music is featured on them! Makes us a bit proud even when it’s a game as big as Saints Row for the PSP and even prouder when the nice developer people show excellent taste by picking “The Lotus Eater” for it. So if you love playing video games: the game is expected to hit the streets around March 2010.” Read more… »

In a recent interview, SCEE head of developer relations Zeno Colaco stated that Sony plans to create a special section of the PlayStation Store for PSP ‘snackable content.’

According to Colaco, “This initiative is about bringing the lighter, lower barrier content to the PSP that has been so successful in other categories.” Sony currently has over fifty studios creating low-cost, “instant gratification” titles. Read more… »
