Starhawk to feature splitscreen head-to-head and co op multiplayer

Sony and developer Lightbox have posted a blog over on the Playstation Blog. The post details the games use of Split screen gaming as well as dual login for online play, meaning you can login to your account at a friend’s house and play on their PS3, retaining any experience you earn on your account while playing at a friend’s house.

These modes are in addition to the already robust online multiplayer that is featured in Starhawk and that I wrote about in an earlier post.

Starhawk releases in May.


Mod Tech Top 10 – PS3 Games of 2012

Time for another Mod Tech Top 10, this week I’m ranking my Top 10 most anticipated Playstation 3 games of 2012. Now these aren’t all exclusives I’ll get that out-of-the-way before we begin. Just games that are coming out this year, exclusive or multi-platform

10. Tomb Raider

This reboot is getting some pretty good hype, it’s been a long time since Lara Croft was a force in gaming and with the likes of Uncharted bringing that action/adventure style game back to the forefront of gamers minds, there seems like no better time to update the Tomb Raider brand. The game will tell the origin story of Lara Croft and feature a tighter, more gritty story and pair that with new gameplay to bring an all new experience to Tomb Raider fans.

Playstation 3 Starhawk Beta Impressions

Starhawk in Action!

I downloaded the Starhawk beta for the Playstation 3 recently and since putting in a bit of time with it I thought I would write-up some impressions of the beta. Now I know that a beta doesn’t represent a full product at all so I’m not going to be making any judgments on what the final game will be like.

Firstly I think the game might be a little to frantic, I remember the main complaint I used to hear about Warhawk was that if you weren’t in it from the beginning, other players got to far ahead, to fast and you could never catch up, this seemed to be the case for me in the beta as well. Since I didn’t get into the beta at the very beginning and get my skills up straight away, the other players who have been playing the game just annihilated me, barely giving me a chance to spawn before I was killed again, this can be a turn off for some players. Wanting to give a good impression of what I played however, I persevered and once I got a bit of skill up the game became quite fun.

I found myself building and flying the Hawks, riding the bikes, manning tanks, it was all good fun, I still got killed…alot, but I dished out my own fair share as well, which kind of balanced it out for me, if you come from Call of Duty and are worried about a Kill/Death ratio, then Starhawk isn’t for you because you will die…alot!

The graphics in the game are better than I expected, as is the animation and handling when I was firing weapons as Infantry. Speaking of weapons, there is a wide variety in the game and you can hold fair amount, able to switch on the fly to pick the right tool for the job.
