It’s that time of the month again when a new issue of Official PlayStation Magazine UK hits the shelves. So I’m taking a welcome break from grinding through a particularly nasty level-wall in Fallout New Vegas to let you know what we’ve got for you.
First up is an exclusive look at Homefront. We’ve been to see the developer and had a play on what’s shaping up to be a very confrontational shooter. This Korea-invades-USA FPS is playing the ‘horrors of war’ card hard by looking at the Geneva Convention and making sure it breaks most of the rules. It’s full of shocking images and nasty stuff that marks it out from Genero War IV (which, you know, was good but not a patch on III)
More cheery news is that we’ve had one of our top driving experts playing Gran Turismo 5. So if you have any questions you want answered about the final arrival of Sony’s flagship driving sim then this should do it.
We’ve also been playing inFamous 2. We spent a day getting heroic in New Marais, saving people and electrocuting monsters. Christ, it’s good. As well as getting hands on we’ve spoken to director Nate Fox, lead designer Darren Bridges and communications director Ken Schramm. You won’t find more info on the superhero-sequel anywhere else.
And, to make sure you have the best blu-ray collection possible, we’ve rounded up The Movies That Shaped Modern Gaming. 25 films that influenced what you play today. From Enter The Dragon to Starship Troopers. These are the flicks that have influenced PlayStation more than any other.
And, throughout the mag, there’s plenty of stuff to keep you interested. Like our test of the latest 3D TVs – three writers take a different model home and live the three dimensional dream. Plus there’s a competition that gives you the chance to win a 3D TV, a PS3 and a Move starter pack. Admit it: you want that. Then there are previews of games like Test Drive Unlimited 2 and Operation Flashpoint Red River, your thoughts on the Killzone 3 beta and reviews including Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit and Rock Band 3.
That’s all on sale now for £5.99 with a playable demo disk. Or you can save up 50% if you subscribe.
