LEGO games have been going from strength to strength since LEGO Star Wars back in 2005. Recently we have been treated to Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings being lovingly recreated using the popular child’s toy. DC Comics have also had success with Batman and friends in last year’s LEGO Batman 2 DC Heroes. They have attracted so much attention that Disney thought it was time to weigh in and today, Marvel along with the LEGO group and TT Games announce LEGO Marvel Super Heroes for all formats.
Despite Sony’s aggressive marketing campaign for the PlayStation Vita, it still appears to be doing fairly poorly. This, as history shows, is not uncommon when faced against Nintendo’s handheld platforms. Over the years many companies have brought out devices that are technically “better” than the Nintendo counterpart and all have failed. Why? No one really knows. But to try and push some of the sales PlayStation’s way, they’re pushing the hype towards the latest title: New Little King’s Story.
If you sign on to your PlayStation Vita a software version will be available. This update will give improved functionalities while using the map and browser applications, you will also be able to use the buttons to navigate the home menu of the console. But more specifically Sony will allow players to finally be able to play PlayStation One classics.
On 23rd October PlayStation Vita owners will be able to get their hands on Street Fighter X Tekken. This is the ultimate mashup from Capcom, bringing together their popular Street Fighter series and mixing it with Namco’s Tekken series. What is better is that if you already own the PlayStation 3 version of the game you are able to share any downloadable content with the Vita version.
Is there anything that cannot be turned into Lego these days? Well Warner Brothers and Travellers Tales do not think so. They have been hard at work with the latest instalment of the Lego video game series – Lord of the Rings. In the run up to Gamescom a new trailer has been released to the world showing in what direction the video game will be taking and why we will be wanting to play the game.
With American Football getting more popular over in the UK each and every year, EA are continuously helping to raise the profile of the NFL with each release of Madden. Madden 13 improves on last year’s version in a number of ways. As well as up to date rosters, the AI has been tweaked to only react to a ball if they are looking at it and Kinect has been added for coaching, menu and play commands.
For those who pre-order the newest LittleBig Planet game for the PlayStation Vita will be rewarded with a code to download two costumes that are based on the popular BioShock series. You will be able to dress your sackboys and girls as either Big Daddy or Little Sister when the game launches this year.
Activision have announced that Call Of Duty will be coming to the Vita in the form of Black Ops Declassified. Not much is known about the game at the moment but will be a side story much like Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation from Ubisoft. It will be a first person shooting game that could link up with the PlayStation 3 game to unlock extra missions or content.
LittleBigPlanet is coming to the PlayStation Vita and since last year’s E3 all has been quiet on SackBoy’s return to the small screen. In this new game, the ethos of the previous titles is present. Users play, share and create their own levels using thousands upon thousands of extras such as stickers and customisable costumes.
Sony have announced that the Vita will be able to be used as an additional controller in some PlayStion 3 titles such as LittleBigPlanet 2 and Sly Cooper. What this means is that the handheld has the option of bringing features such as touchscreen compatibility to the PlayStation 3.
