FirstPlay Episode 11

34 4

Hello everyone!


Hope everyone’s been enjoying E3! Busy week in the office. But I’ve bravely taken a break from livestreaming conferences and downloading screenshots to give you a heads up on what’s in episode 11 of FirstPlay, which will be on the Store this Wednesday.
First of all, and totally exclusive to FirstPlay, we have the demo for Backbreaker, the new American Football title from NaturalMotion. If you didn’t know, they’re the guys behind the awesome Euphoria physics engine that makes gunfights in GTA IV a constant stream of reeling, cartwheeling bodies. Backbreaker offers something very different from the towering Madden series (mostly, dudes getting horribly canned) and is definitely worth a look.


In this week’s HD reviews you can find out whether Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker really is the best PSP game of all time, and whether Codies’ International Cricket 2010 can build on last year’s Ashes success. We’ve also got an interview with the guys at Media Molecule talking about LittleBigPlanet 2, and a preview of Ubisoft’s new RTS, R.U.S.E. No, I don’t know what it stands for, either.



On top of that we’ve got our regular round of Network Highlights – including a DLC round-up and the best of PSone classics – and screenshot galleries, this week featuring Killzone 3, Dead Space 2 and Vanquish.
And don’t forget if you’ve missed the minis we’ve given away over the last four weeks – Echoes, Blast Off, Age Of Zombies and Aero Racer – they’re all still available to download in episodes 7 to 10, on the Store now for just 99p each.
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 We’re also on the official EU forums here.
See the Future of PS3. First.
