Diablo 3 for Playstation 3

PlayStation® gamers, the time has come to prepare for your confrontation with the Lord of Terror. Select retailers around the world have now begun taking preorders for the upcoming PlayStation®3 system version of Diablo® III—see the official website for a list of participating retailers. Fully reimagined for couch-based gaming, Diablo III for PS3™ will go on sale later this year for a suggested retail price of £49.99. Further release details, including region-specific availability, will be announced at a later date.

Players who preorder the PS3 version of Diablo III will receive an exclusive in-game item: the Infernal Helm, which grants an experience point boost to any character who wears it, accelerating their progression as they rise in power. Certain retailers will also offer limited-edition preorder bonuses—check with your local retailer for further information. The PS3 version of Diablo III will be available fully localized in English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Italian, Polish, and Brazilian Portuguese.
“We’ve poured blood, sweat, and hellfire into creating an epic Diablo III experience for PlayStation gamers,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “In addition to including all the improvements from the PC version over the past year, we’ve made several updates to Diablo III for play on the PS3. We got a ton of positive feedback from players who tried the game at PAX East, and we can’t wait to get it into everyone’s hands later this year.”

The PS3 version of Diablo III has been custom-tailored for PlayStation gamers, with updates to the game’s thrilling boss battles, an all-new user interface featuring an intuitive control system, and a dynamic camera perspective that will make vanquishing evil feel like second nature on the PlayStation. Players can take on the vile denizens of the Burning Hells alone or in a party of up to four via same-screen local cooperative play, online play over the PlayStation Network, or any combination of online or local players. Once gamers experience the rush of Diablo III’s unique brand of hack-and-slash gameplay from the comfort of their couch, Sanctuary will never be the same.

Diablo III continues the epic Diablo storyline, with players taking on the role of one of five heroic characters—barbarian, witch doctor, wizard, monk, or demon hunter—embarking on a perilous quest to save the world of Sanctuary from the corrupting forces of the Burning Hells. As players make their way from the demon-besieged town of New Tristram to the Diamond Gates of the High Heavens, they’ll engage in pulse-pounding combat with hordes of monsters and challenging bosses, grow in experience and ability, acquire artifacts of incredible power, and meet key characters who’ll join them in battle or aid them along the way.

Diablo III was originally released for Windows® and Macintosh® PC on May 15, 2012 and within 24 hours became the fastest-selling PC game of all time.

The Karate Kid Blu-Ray Review

The Karate Kid Blu-ray

The joy of Blu-Ray is that it gives me an excuse to rewatch old films and get excited by them all over again. In this case it is the original ?The Karate Kid? with Ralph Macchio and the incomparably brilliant Pat Morita. 1984 was the year and Ralph burst onto the scene with big hair, big lips and an other-worldly tan. As a 10 year old this film ticked every box I had. It was exciting, challenging, educational and full of kick-ass karate. What kid wouldn?t want to be as good as the Karate Kid? And then life moved on, I grew up and The Karate Kid was boxed away in a special place in my memories, that nostalgia-laden place where all things 80s live.

So now it is 2012 and I?ve got the film in my PS3 on the shiny new BD format and it is time to see if it lives up to my rose-tinted expectations. Well, let?s start with the transfer. Wow, what a beauty. This is a film that is almost 30 years old and yet the HD image is stunning. It still has a certain 80s hue to it, but that is fine, for in the world of The Karate Kid it is forever 1984. But really, this transfer looks amazing. Was Ralph always that shade of mahogany? He must have been! The audio is perfect, well-balanced between the action scenes and more transcendental moments. The 80s electro-pop soundtrack sounds sharper than you will have ever heard it?far superior in fact to how we heard it back in 1984! In fact, the whole Karate Kid experience is a little surreal?back in the 80s (and then the 90s VHS days) we saw little of the film?s beauty and visual flair due to the restrictions of the formats. So here we are, 28 years on watching the film in an entirely new way. And it is magical.

Just in case you don?t know the story (shame on you!) the film is about a loser kid from New Jersey who moves to sunny California. There he meets a girl (of course) and gets into a fight with her ex-boyfriend (the local bully boy rich kid). It turns out the bully is also a karate student whose teacher is an ex-special forces hardhead who believes attack is the best philosophy. After getting in to yet another fight with the bully and his mates (related to a surreal only-in-the-80s shower-themed prank) our Jersey hero Daniel is beaten to a pulp, but saved by the local Japanese handyman Mr Miyagi. To stop any more fights, Miyagi agrees to train Daniel for a regional karate contest at which he will fight the bullies. For the next few months Daniel learns Mr Miyagi?s unique style of karate through a series of tasks and chores. The film concludes with the karate championship?but does Daniel win? Does he get the girl? Does Mr Miyagi ever catch a fly with chopsticks?

Watching The Karate Kid again after so many years brought back a whole heap of memories and emotions. But beyond the nostalgia rush it also reminded me what a great film this is. It is a powerful, well-told, timeless tale about bullying, parenting, fathers and sons. While Ralph?s Daniel was an almost-everyboy, Pat Morita?s Mr Miyagi was the definitive dream-friend/teacher. His patience, humour, pathos and sense of honour perfectly reflect what the Japanese martial arts embody. Karate is for defense, never attack. You learn it so you never have to use it. And in every life we are made better by the friends we have, those we help and those we allow to teach us. Pat is a revelation in this film?especially since he was better known as a stand-up comedian before taking on the role. It is only right that he was nominated for an Oscar for the role in 1984?a crime that he didn?t win!

The BD release comes packed with some superb extras, including one of the best Making Of documentaries I?ve ever seen, offering real insight into the film-making process and with some excellent interviews with all the leading players. There is a commentary from the director and leading actors, docs on karate and much more. It is a great value release.

Should you buy The Karate Kid on Blu-Ray? Absolutely. Will it live up to your memories? Without a doubt, and then some more. Show it to your 30-something friends, show it to your kids. The Karate Kid is one of those rare things, a true 80s gem, a perfect film. I was tempted to end on a ?wax on/wax off? gag but honestly I don?t want to do this film the disservice. Go watch it again, it is simply sublime.

Hell In The UK

Is This Near Hell Enough For You
BRITAIN?S IDEA OF HELL REVEALED

Jordan and Gordon Brown revealed as the UK?s most Hellish public figures

John Paul Sartre may have said that Hell was other people but the occupants of the UK have slightly different ideas. They believe that their ultimate idea of Hell would be to be stuck on an airplane surrounded by screaming children, Jordan and Gordon Brown. Jellied eels would be the only thing on the menu and Big Brother would be their entertainment.
The research was commissioned to launch Dante?s Inferno the video game based on Dante Alighieri?s epic renaissance poem, The Divine Comedy. Respondents were asked their views on a personal hell.

Celebs:
The top five hellish celebrities were:

? Jordan (30.3%)
? Amy Winehouse (19.7%)
? Russell Brand (14.2%)
? Kerry Katona (8.9%)
? Posh Spice (8.1%)

Over 18 million people (30% of Brits) thought that spending time with Jordan would be their idea of hell and her antics over the last few months have lead many to feel that she would have fitted right in to the nine layers of hell. Women in particular have taken a disliking to her lustful and wasteful lifestyle with over 32% voting her their most hellish celeb.
Nearly 21 million Brits (32.6% of UK) would go one step further and send Jordan to Hell if they could but surprisingly after a massive fall from grace in 2009 Kerry Katona only received 8% of the vote.

Politics:
The top five hellish politicians were:

? Gordon Brown (26.4%)
? Nick Griffin (17%)
? George W Bush (15.6%)
? Tony Blair (12%)
? Ann Widdecombe (7.4%)

Ahead of the upcoming election Gordon Brown hasn?t fared too well, he was overwhelmingly voted the most hellish politician with over 12 million Brits (26% of UK) feeling that spending time with him would be hell. This is nearly 10% more than controversial politician Nick Griffin (17% of UK) and over 20% more than his main rival David Cameron (5.9%).

Everyday Situations:
The top five hellish situations are:

? Being stuck on an plane with a screaming child (32.7%)
? Being stuck in a lift (19.2%)
? Trying to sleep while someone is snoring (11.7%)
? Attending a pointless, boring meeting (8.9%)
? Taking a cold shower (6.4%)

Being stuck on a plane next to a screaming child is the nation?s idea of a hellish situation (32.7%) and with thousands jetting off for a bit of winter sun many Brits will find themselves in hell this winter, for a couple of hours at least.
The cold snap and resultant traffic chaos over the last couple of weeks has lead to 3.5 million Brits (5% of the UK) saying that being stuck in traffic is their idea of hell but they would still rather spend a night in their snow covered car than be stuck in a lift (19% of UK).

TV:

The top five hellish TV shows are:
? Big Brother (31.4%)
? Test Match Cricket (21.5%)
? I?m A Celebrity (10.1%)
? X Factor (8.6%)
? Match Of The Day (9%)
Two fifths of men (41.6%) deem watching Big Brother as their idea of hell, compared to a quarter of women (24.9%). It seems that Test Cricket is what puts women off with nearly a third of women putting this as their number one hellish programme (29.6%).

Food:
The top five hellish foods are:
? Jellied Eels (46.3%)
? Liver (9.5%)
? Hot Chillis (8.7%)
? Tofu (6.7%)
? Veal (6%)

Jellied eels are clearly the least popular food, almost half of the UK (46.3%) agree that eating them would be their idea of hell. The old school classic, liver, comes in second with one in ten voting this as their idea of hell (9.5%).
Based on part one of Dante Alighieri?s classic poem ?The Divine Comedy,? Dante?s Inferno is a 3rd person action adventure game that takes Dante on an epic journey through the nine layers of Hell as he seeks to rescue the soul of his beloved Beatrice. Dante?s Inferno is available for PLAYSTATION 3, Xbox 360 and the PSP on February 5th 2010.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is a fantastic looking new Spiderman game to come to PS3, Xbox 360, wii, Ds and PC

A deadly symbiote invasion brings total devastation to the streets of New York City in the next Spider-Man?: Web of Shadows, where players have ultimate control over the city?s salvation and Spider-Man?s destiny. Set in an apocalyptic New York City, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows gives players an unprecedented level of gameplay choices, including, for the first time, control over the game?s direction and outcome. The all new combat system allows for truly three dimensional battles that start in the streets, continue up sides of buildings and finish on rooftops. Gamers can instantly switch between the agile red suit and formidable black suit, choose to ally with Marvel?s honored heroes or ferocious villains, pick which of Spider-Man?s abilities to upgrade, and decide which missions to undertake in order to protect Manhattan from certain destruction.

Key Game features:

  • Not-So-Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man ? A fusion of web-slinging and powerful combat moves combine to create an unbeatable, all-new fighting system that intuitively blends Spider-Man?s speed and strength with the environment for deadly new attacks and combos. Players can crush an enemy through the momentum of swinging from a flagpole, fight hordes of symbiotes with wall-crawling abilities, or rapidly attack an entire mob in quick succession with the spin of a web. And for the first time in a Spider-Man game, gamers can take the fight vertically and combat foes on city walls, where Spider-Man has the advantage
  • Anything Goes ? At a moment?s notice, players can harness the grace, agility and acrobatics of Spider-Man Red Suit, or leverage the brute, savage power of the Black Suit. For the first time in a Spider-Man game, gamers can switch suits at any time to create devastating never-before-seen combos and finishing moves. Players must decide if saving New York means siding with Marvel?s most honored heroes or its most dangerous villains, as they control how to fight, what abilities to upgrade and with whom to ally.
  • The City That Never Sleeps ? Teeming with life, the Big Apple is more alive than ever before in the Spider-Man series. Citizens will either cheer Spider-Man on or run away in fear, depending on gamers? actions and decisions. Players control whether Spider-Man acts the hero or the vigilante in his quest to save the city, both in turn affecting the course and struggle against the symbiote invasion.
  • Battlefield: Next-Gen Apocalypse ? Increased city interactivity and destructibility allow the player to pick up and use anything in their way as a weapon, destroy store fronts, demolish vehicles, and virtually obliterate city streets with powerful attacks. Next-generation technology brings New York to life with realistic textures and animations, as well as an all-new context-sensitive camera system allowing the player to take on enemies and change directions faster than ever before, while adding a new dimension of intelligence and polish to Spider-Man?s actions in the air and on the ground.
  • Who?s With Me? ? With some of the greatest heroes and most notorious villains in the Marvel Universe, including staples such as Luke Cage and Vulture, players? choices control who will ultimately aid them in the fight to rid New York of the alien symbiote. These choices have consequences, as behaving like a hero or like a vigilante will ultimately lead to separate destinies.
  • Extra Credit ? As gamers progress, they earn experience in multiple combat disciplines to allow them to custom-design their ideal Spider-Man. Whether players prefer web-slinging to melee fighting, or battling in the Red Suit versus the Black Suit, points are generated that can be used to upgrade the move they like best.
  • Instant Replay ? With dozens of story choices and character customization options, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows provides a fresh and exciting gaming experience every time it?s played.
