Here’s what’s coming up in episode 10 of FirstPlay, which hits the Store this Wednesday.
It’s the last of our minis giveaways this week, and we end with what’s probably the best of the lot – super-addictive sci-fi arcader, Aero Racer (worth £3.99) comes completely free with episode 10. And if you’ve missed any of the minis from our last three episodes – Echoes, Blast Off, Age Of Zombies – it’s worth remembering they’re all still available on the Store for just 99p an episode.
In this week’s videos we have two hands-on HD previews. The first is with Tecmo Koei’s meaty sci-fi shooter Quantum Theory, a game built almost entirely from bullets and insanely huge biceps (not that we’re complaining). And the second is with NaturalMotion’s equally muscular gridiron cruncher, Backbreaker, which is built using the same ‘puppet-with-cut-strings’ Euphoria engine that brought GTA IV’s characters to life (and, more entertainingly, death) and makes lining up big hits feel better than actually scoring.
We’ve also got a review of big-trousered adventure Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, as well as our regular round-up of Network Highlights, this week featuring a guide to the best of the Store, a round-up of the latest downloadable movies, and a top ten Just Cause 2 easter eggs. And that’s on top of our HD screenshot galleries, which this week feature what’s almost certain to be the biggest game of 2010, Call Of Duty: Black Ops, as well as blockbuster tie-in Tron and Enslaved.
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.
