Everyone enjoy the bank holiday weekend? Our thoughts were split between “Yay time off!” and “Boo making an entire episode of FirstPlay in four body-breaking days!”
Talking of which – FirstPlay episode 9 will be on the Store from Wednesday. We’re continuing our minis giveaway with the properly awesome Age Of Zombies (worth £3.99), and we’ve also got an exclusive Ghost Recon theme. That’s all for 99p, although with another free minis game next week and demos and avatars to come, it’s seriously worth your while to nab a money saving 90-day subscription for just £8.99.
As for the videos, this week we have a huge, in-depth HD review of Rockstar’s monster Western Red Dead Redemption (the wildlife corpse count is still rising), as well as a verdict on customisable karter ModNation Racers and a preview of tough-but-totally-worth-it RPG-er Demon’s Souls.
Then we’ve got our regular round-up of Network Highlights, this week featuring a playtest of the best PSN puzzlers, GTA IV’s awesome DLC episodes The Lost & The Damned and The Ballad Of Gay Tony, and a guide to doing the best (and most annoying) goal celebrations in 2010 FIFA World Cup. And also our screenshot galleries, this week featuring The Sims 3, new Lara Croft adventure The Guardian Of Light and crunching new American football bruiser, Backbreaker.
Please do find us on Twitter at @firstplay_uk, where we run regular giveaways and competitions, and email any suggestions, feedback or marriage proposals to FirstPlay@futurenet.com. We’re also on the official EU forums here.
See the Future of PS3. First.
