Sonys grand plans for a two-part GT HD, featuring downloadable, hi-def GT4 content on the one hand and an authentic GT5 taster on the other, has bitten the dust. What started as "Vision GT" - a quick ‘n dirty demo designed to show off the future - has, via GT HD, become GT HD Concept. Available only as a free 630Mb download from the PlayStation Store, its a small, but free, look at how GT looks in glorious high 1080p definition-o-vision. And its free. So you cant really complain. Or can
This week's bombshell dropped by Valve delaying Half-Life 2: Episode Two AGAIN has kicked off renewed discussion on episodic gaming. Is it working and is it a good idea to release games in this format? Lost would have been canned long ago if the ABC couldn't get its episodes out on time.
It all hangs, of course, on the developer. When a major studio like Valve leaves us waiting 18 months between episodes, you'd be excused for reacting negatively to episodic gaming. But then take a look at
Look around. You'd almost think companies were never going to release a PS2 game ever again. We're constantly being bombarded with images of the latest and greatest upcoming titles for the PS3, 360 and the Wii.
One thing that's easy to forget in all the next-gen hype, though, is that there are over 100 million PS2s out there in the world. With those kinds of numbers, publishers would be crazy to quit cold turkey. As a matter of fact, there are still lots of PS2 titles coming - they're just not
This guide will tell you everything you need to know about beating the games many bosses. Other than that, well let you explore the game as you see fit - we wouldnt want to spoil too much now, would we?
This battle will be much easier if you know the Blizzard spell, so buy it before venturing into the Garamscythe Waterway. Use Protect on Amalia and Vaan to protect them from the Firemanes attack, and rely on Amalias Potion supply to keep them healthy. Meanwhile, take Fran a fair
Were behind a pillar. Sorry - Hollywood action hero Chow Yun-Fat is behind a pillar, face grim, eyes narrowed and hands gripping dual Beretta pistols. As moonlight bathes the museum, gloomily illuminating the looming dinosaur skeleton above, we hear the muffle of incoming footsteps. Hopelessly outnumbered, desperately low on health, we swing into the open and - in a few violent stabs of PS3s Sixaxis pad - erupt into a spiraling slow-motion weave of bullets and trace-lines, spinning and firing
There are many ways you can lay the smack down in uber-RTS, Supreme Commander. If you want to keep progressing in your campaigns of destruction, you better figure out how to use the Experimental Units, 'cause when you do, your enemies are in for a world of hurt. And then
Welcome to the fifteenth installment of GamesRadar's weekly feature, PokemonRadar.
In other Pokemon news, word of the U.S. names of the new Diamond and Pearl Pokemon have slipped out, courtesy of the New York Toy Fair, which just ended on Wednesday. Naetoru, the Grass starter, is now "Turtwig," Hikozaru, the Fire starter, is now "Chimchar" and Pocchama, the Water starter, is "Piplup." Others were unveiled as well, but we'll save those for later.
Today we'll look at the evolved forms of last
Well, this was an unexpected surprise. Sony generously decided to hand out a completely free, ten-car and one track teaser demo of Gran Turismo HD to any PS3 owners who wants it. Granted, this isn't GT 5 - it's just an enhanced version of GT 4 - but we'll take it.
Your prize for waiting for 650MB to download is a clearly beautiful race game that, and were not exaggerating, looks streets ahead of anything else available. The cars are fantastic models and they look incredibly sharp. There are no
Theres never a backlash when it comes to Gran Turismo - the public loves the series so much, it can get away with practically anything. Poor old Gran Turismo 4 was delayed a million times and wasnt quite as online as Sony said it would be, but still we adored it and bought it without any fuss. Gran Turismo 3 shouldve been a PS2 launch game, but arrived two years later, but we didnt care then either.
And it looks like well be waiting until 2008 for the PlayStation 3 version of Gran Turismo 5,
The fourth title in the series was a labor of love. Twenty programmers, 40 artists and another 20 or so pen-pushers all came together under the guidance of Mr. Yamauchi to create Gran Turismo 4. It was delayed to hell - but we didnt really care. It had its online options removed, but we didnt really care either.
The game mechanics were the same, and perhaps too similar to previous games. Common complaints like lack of car damage, no damn Ferraris, and the robotic enemy drivers werent
