When it was under THQ’s trusted wing, the UFC series was quite good. It was a passable fighter that exchanged WWE’s arcade-y stylings for realistic, gritty (and bloody) fighting. When THQ went under like a lead balloon in a vat of custard, EA scooped up the rights and made EA Sports UFC. Chalk it down to the astonishing visuals (actual beads of sweat!), the RPG element of levelling up your fighter or that the gameplay is solid like titanium but it was a bit of brilliance. What EA boasted about more than anything though is that their game features a playable Bruce Lee. With people taking a solid interest in that, we have exclusive info that EA are looking to enlist even more well-known fighters for the next EA Sports UFC title. Read on to find out more.
It’s been a busy news week for The Last Guardian as Sony have confirmed that both the game’s creator, Fumito Ueda, and the executive producer, Yoshifusa Hayama, have left the development studio of the title with the former only working on the game on a freelance basis.

A few weeks ago, a list of upcoming game releases was pictured on a flyer, made by the movie and game rental giant Blockbuster. On the list, every big name piece of software and hardware could be seen, giving store employees an insight as to which big names everyone would be yearning to rent in the weeks running up to Christmas. Interestingly, Sony’s new console, the PS Vita, was listed, release date : 28th of October 2011. That’s less that a month away.
We all want to get our hands on it but Sony are holding some of their cards to their chest (which has never been the specialty) and are keeping hush on many of console’s features. However, keen to get a second opinion from the players themselves, they hosted a survey revealing a whole host of new tidbits about not only the PS Vita but the PS Store too and J Station X has the scoop.

They say that video games offer one of the most immersing user experiences in the world, providing an entirely new playing field for interactivity. It is also said that films can elicit incredible reactions from viewers, engaging them with every scene, 3D was said to take this engagement and improve on that. Tenfold. We already know that Sony are rolling out games that are set to captivate us even more, featuring 3D (and some even have PlayStation Move) support over the next year. Killzone 3’s beautifully rendered ice caps and behemoth oil rig structures will be seen in a third dimension sometime around early 2011 and you can bet that I’ll be the first in line to get a piece of the ever enthralling-3D-pie!
With all of this incredible ‘3D-ness’ in mind and with all of these amazing games and films set to be released, it only makes perfect sense for one smart, if not ‘genius’ company to start planning for this new fascinating 3D revolution by offering up 3D gaming in the home of the of the original viewing experience, the cinema.

For J Station X, my lovely little (and rather precious) corner of the web, I want to, no, have to stay informed on all of the new game happenings. Even though I don’t always post my findings on the site, I’m always looking around the web for new stuff. Every time a game has a trailer put on the web they put those little notices at the end that say ‘follow us on Twitter’ ‘friend us on Facebook’ and more often than not, they say ‘sign up on our website for game updates’. Now I’m on of those people who will follow, friend and sign-up, which is how I ended up with this exclusive.
I’ve been a fan of Codemasters’ games for a while, with my favourites being their Micro Machines series as well as the amazing GRID, I’m also looking forward to F1 2010, their Formula 1 driving sim and their upcoming shooter, Bodycount. Needless to say, with all these great games I found it necessary to sign up to their updates. In one of the E-Mails they sent out to sign-ups, they offered the chance to ‘have your say’ in the next game that they make which is how I nabbed this awesome exclusive of Codemasters’ next big original IP video game.
