When To Use Playstation 3 Cheat Codes

January 7, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

There are lots of sites online that promote Playstation 3 cheat codes. Playstation 3 Cheat codes are commonly employed to assist with a particular level, making the title easier to finish. They can make your heroes powerful and more talented. Alternatively, if its a racing title for instance, you can also slow down the enemy cars on the course.

Playstation 3 cheat codes, if overused, could make the game pretty boring. Certain games may ask you to complete achievements to earn PS trophies, and Playstation 3 cheat codes are an ideal way to unravel more pesky tasks.

There is no risk in using Playstation 3 cheat codes with your favorite games, it'll just make things easier and wont create any problems for your console. These are supposed to make playing games easier and more pleasurable, but I recommend that Playstation 3 cheat codes be employed as a last resort, or with a title you've already completed. This is because you could miss out on some brilliant challenges and rewarding gameplay.

Conversely, Playstation 3 cheat codes can be a great and rewarding supplement to any game. Multiplayer games in particular frequently benefit from fun codes, such as 'big heads' and 'paint ball' options for a FPS. They deserve to be employed to add extras to your games, not to go around whole levels of it because you're fearful of a little graft! So go on and search for some Playstation 3 cheat codes to add a little bit of additional fun to your games!

Take Control!

Everybody knows about the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii. It's often that people compare each consoles graphics power and stability, but rarely do they consider the pros and cons of the controllers themselves. It is the controller that links you to the game, with out it gamers would be lost. A lot of work can go into making a good, accessibly comfortable controller. So, overall, how does each controller compare?

Microsoft Xbox Controller

When the original Xbox released in 2001, it came with the initial controller now known as the Duke Controller. As Microsoft soon discovered, the Duke was way to big and bulky, and hurt people's hands. So the Controller S was released, a model that is very similar to the current Xbox 360 controller, only the Xbox 360 version is the most comfortable and easy to use model by far.

Yes, the Xbox 360 has a great controller overall, but you may be surprised to know that the one thing that gamers have never forgiven Microsoft for is the absolutely abysmal control pad. There is no excuse for it. Every other current-gen console has implemented the pad perfectly. Microsoft apparently wanted to stand out as different by having a control pad that does not work, but it is a huge price to pay for such decidedly unprofessional behaviour. If such a flaw were to be fixed, the Xbox 360's controller would be near perfect.

Sony Playstation 3 Controller

The current Playstation 3 controller is not as new to the game as you might think. It is basically the PS2's, only with certain internal modifications. The original PS3 controller, which had a new look, sort of a boomerang shaped thing, and control scheme, was cancelled. The reasons for this are clear: the controller didn't work as well as the time-tested PS2's did. Perhaps it was a good decision, but I doubt that Sony will get away with doing the same thing over come the next generation of gaming. One feature that was, and still is, lacking from the PS3 controllers is the combination of the six-axis controller and the DualShock 3 controller. We all know Sony thought that having a rumble function was not the future, but we gamers demanded it. So, why could they not combine the two together? Who knows, maybe in the future.

The PS3's controller works as well as ever, even if we can't have both six-axis and DualShock together, but gamers are going to start wanting something less familiar and more original soon enough. Truth is, the way Sony is now, I doubt gamers will get what they want.

Nintendo Wii Controller

Lastly there is the Wii. The Wii's Wiimote is hard to compare to the controllers of other consoles. It pushes the boundaries of controllers far beyond what Microsoft or Sony have ever done. It is more innovative, original, and advanced than any controller that has come out in almost two decades. Perhaps longer.

It is an amazing piece of technology that has all the potential to take gaming to a whole new level. With all the hate towards the Wii's lack of powerful hardware, at least the console has it's Wiimote going for it.

Gamers everywhere should look forward to what the eighth generation of gaming controllers will bring.  Who knows what innovations will be brought to the table and take gaming to the next level?

Old School Gaming, Give it a Go!

March 13, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Games have changed dramatically over the decades that have been around. Older games do not have the advanced gameplay and pleasing graphics of today's games. However, some of them are monumental in the history of video games, like Space Invaders or Pac-Man. They can still provide hours of fun for nostalgia's sake - to relive the glory days of one's youth. Even todays youth can enjoy the older games as a welcome diversion to today's fare.

Here are four options to explore for those wanting to play classic games.

Online Games

Not many people would think to look on the internet for old video games, but with the massive uptake of Flash and Java, old video games have had a rejuvination. There are many sites which offer Flash or Java based games. You can find almost anything you want: Frogger, Donkey Kong, Centipede, and on it goes. There are hundreds of games available online. Many of these sites are advertising supported, that is how they offer these games for free. Just be careful as some sites falsly advertise these games, and instead send viruses or even trojan horses. Therefore, make sure you have good virus protection loaded onto your system and keep it up to date.

Just Google "classic games" or something similar to find these sites.

Console Emulators

Another option is console emulators, which are programs one can run on their computer that mimic video game consoles.

As with the online games, many options are available for emulators and games. In most cases, the games are not exact clones but do fairly closely mimic the gameplay of certain games. The Nintendo Super Mario franchise is one which has many cloned games available. When dealing with emulators, there is a legal issue to be aware of. When downloading the games to play on the emulator you have to actually own the a copy of the game, otherwise you are breaking the copyright laws.

Multi-Game Consoles

There are many variations of this, and the idea is that you can purchase a new console that has one, five, ten or more games preloaded onto it. These units have been available for years and continue to sell well. Check Amazon our your local stores and see what goodies they have.

Buy Older Video Game Machines

This last tip is an activity that could consume a great deal of time if you choose. But ultimately is the best way. Not only does it bring back the full nostalger of playing the consoles again, but you can play the games the way they were meant to be played. You can simply buy used consoles, games, and controllers and hook them up to your television.

Popular choices include the Atari 2600 and the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).

The first place you should check is eBay, where you can often find an entire package including the console, controllers, and ten or more games for under $50. This would be everything you need until you decide to purchase more games, and hundreds or even thousands are available for sale at any given time.

If you would rather not buy your used video game equipment online, many people have good luck locally. You can try the following:

* Craigslist (if you know how to use RSS feeds, these searches can be automated).
* Nickel-type papers.
* Yard sales (don't be afraid to offer less than the asking price).
* Second hand stores.

Here's a tip about the last item, second hand stores. These types of stores get inventory in all the time, especially non-profit stores where individuals make donations of goods. What you want is someone on the "inside" who will call you when specific items arrive that you might want. If you can get this kind of help, it will save you a lot of time. Otherwise, you will need to check back with the stores on a fairly regular basis. Also, when buying from a second hand store, they only accept consoles or games that work, so when buying from these places your almost certain to have a product that works.

No matter which option you choose, you can find classic games for free or for the fraction of what you pay for games these days, and enjoy them almost as much as today's games!

Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena

March 3, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is a new videogame causing quite a storm in the community, with some claiming it just may well be the best videogame adaptation of movie material of all time. This title is the sequel to Escape From Butcher Bay, which was a first-person action game originally released on the Xbox, then later ported to the PC with additional content and features. There are many reasons the game was so well received, the first being that it carefully balanced it's action between shooting, stealth, and exploration to perfection. The breathtakingly detailed visuals married with an in depth and involving storyline made for a great game. However, one major flaw was present- no multiplayer, and in a first person shooter that is almost unforgivable. Suffice to say, Dark Athena is set to right this wrong.

The story picks up where Butcher Bay left off, as Riddick and bounty hunter Johns drift across space in cryostasis. Eventually Riddick's vessel is captured by the pirate ship Dark Athena. Riddick awakens and escapes, but Johns is taken aboard and held captive. With only a makeshift weapon in the form of the captain's hairpin, Riddick must use stealth and intelligence in order to escape.

At this point, a few gameplay elements are introduced. The first is that of puzzle solving, as the firearms on Dark Athena feature ID tags, as in Metal Gear Solid 2, so that they will only fire for their official owner. In order to eliminate certain obstacles, such as windows, Riddick can drag bodies and use them to fire the gun. This can also be done for the purpose of a gunfight.

Speaking of gunfights, Dark Athena places a much larger emphasis on this element of gameplay than Butcher Bay. Several new functions have been introduced ranging from simultaneous use of cover and firepower, a number of contextual weapons to use, and the ability to control various mechs.

Dark Athena improves on the original game in every conceivable way, providing a much more controlled and polished title. For fans of the Riddick films and character, this title is a must, expanding the franchise with stylish and involving gameplay and storylines.
