Daily News - 1st June 2011 - Carmageddon, Aliens (Yes, THOSE Aliens!) And Is PSN Down?!?

This is my 2nd time typing this post out in full, and at work aswell. Keep that to yourself though eh?

Sony Take Down PSN... But Don't Worry Your Pretty Little Head About It

Have you gone to log onto PSN today to play some games and found that it was down? Were you terrified by that? I don't blame you! But fear not, for it was all under control. Sony just had to take the service down, something to do with patches. I'd expect this to happen quite alot in the next few weeks, as they continue to pile on the security, and while it's probably mega annoying atleast tyou know your shit isn't gonna get stolen again. Overall I'd say it's worth the inconvenience, but then again I can always just play on Xbox Live so my viewpoint is somewhat skewed.

One thing nobody can deny: the PS3's background is sexy as hell!

 A Countdown On The Carmageddon Website Reveals... A New Carmageddon!

The new game will be called Carmageddon: Reincarnation (I added the emphasis on "car" myself. Geddit?!) and will be a downloadable game made by Stainless Games, the team behind the well-received (by me) Xbox Live Arcade games Magic: The Gathering and Risk: Factions. Stainless co-founder and Executive Director had the following to say:

"Carmageddon: Reincarnation will feature the same black humour and comic violence that made the original game such a success. All the laughs, the crazy power-ups, and extreme destruction will return. We will make sure the existing fans get what they want and expect from a Carmageddon game, and a new generation discovers the delights of sliding into a Cunning Stunt."

If that doesn't convey the tone of carmageddon nothing will... except maybe the image below...

Tone = Conveyed

Gearbox Are Gonna Make The "True Sequel" To Aliens!

Aliens: Colonial Marines has been a title that's been thrown around for years, never quite getting to the point of actually being made... until now! Gearbox (whom can do no wrong in my eyes right now) have decided that if a good Aliens game is gonna get made, they're the only ones we can trust to do it! Apparently the game will feature drop-in-drop-out 4 person multiplayer, customisable weapons and areas from the movie. Though we've not seen anything from the game yet (but, again, maybe at E3!) the fact that there's a new Alien film due to be coming out some time next year definitely lends creedence to the game's existence and, let's be honest, we can count on gearbox to make this game fucking awesome.

    Who's a pretty boy then!
