Hello everyone, sorry it's a bit late this week, i've been on hoilday.
It’s somehow almost Christmas, even though it feels like about a week since I didn’t really get anything I wanted last year (“A whisk! Thanks, darling”) and I haven’t yet filled my amazon wishlist with expensive boxsets I’ll never have time to watch.
But it does mean that FirstPlay is experiencing its first ever December, with episode 35 hitting the store on Wednesday the 1st. The big news this week is that, to celebrate the release of the actually rather good Def Jam Rapstar, we sent Official PlayStation Magazine‘s foolishly game news editor Rachel Weber to become a real rapper under the tutelage of hip hop up-and-comer XO man. See how she got on in our exclusive feature.
We also do our square-jawed damnedest to catch up on all the games of 2010 we’ve not reviewed so far, including Rock Band 3, DJ Hero 2, PDC World Championship Darts (whoo!) and a big slice of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.
We also take a look at blockbusting marvel Inception on Blu-ray, show you how we got on with our first hour on Killzone 3‘s multiplayer, countdown our favourite local co-op games (that’s splitscreen and screensharing, rather than supermarket arcades) and talk to developer Ready At Dawn about the making of God Of War: Ghost Of Sparta. Plus we’ve got our regular screenshot galleries, which this week include the latest on inFamous 2 and No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise.
As always this comes for just 99p, or even less if you buy a 12 week subscription for £8.99. Go on…

See the Future of PS3. First.
Hey guys - I already mentioned this on Facebook and Twitter but just wanted to re-iterate what a good job you've done with this episode. I like the features with the guys (Killzone 3) and Rachel (Def Jam), which is saying something given that I don't even like hip hop that much.
I felt that the whole episode offered a lot more content for only 99p, more so than your past episodes. Plus having skippable adverts are a BIG relief!
Keep up the good work And also... get on my idea about the guys doing a SingStar Dance feature
This episode looks great. Are you still doing free content with every episode, if so can you tell me what you get in it or is that a big suprise.
Nice to see some shots of Stranger's Wrath too, had to buy a second hand xbox to play it originally, so glad it's comming back to PS!
