Starhawk Lands in PlayStation: The Official Magazine

Roger Burchill's Avatar Posted by on Feb 10, 2012 // Editor in Chief, PlayStation: The Official Magazine

We loved Warhawk’s frenetic online battles back in the PS3’s early days, so we’re excited about its spiritual successor Starhawk — this month’s cover star for PlayStation: The Official Magazine. An innovative Build & Battle system that allows players to quickly and intuitively construct fortifications looks to ramp up the multiplayer action, while the all-new campaign fleshes out the universe and introduces us to space cowboy badass Emmett Graves. We can’t wait to jump into a Hawk and take the battle to the stars.

PTOM March 2012 Cover: Starhawk

Our March issue also means that it’s time to celebrate V-Day. No, not Valentine’s Day. We’re talking about the really most important date in February, the 22nd: PS Vita’s launch day! Hands-on time with PS Vita is more potent than any cupid’s arrow, so the PTOM editors reveal which games and accessories they’re coveting and break down the purchasing decisions you’ll need to make on day one.

Elsewhere in the mag, the love fest continues with our first in-depth look at Lollipop Chainsaw. Zombies and cheerleaders?! Sounds irresistible to us. We’ve also got big previews on Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier and the gorgeous new JRPG Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. And we put Street Fighter X Tekken through its paces to determine the game’s most potent tag-team combo.

Things are also picking up on the reviews front as some of the biggest first-quarter releases have finally arrived. SoulCalibur V proves that its weapon-based fighting action is as sharp as ever, the Jak and Daxter Collection fuels our nostalgia for the good ol’ days, and we finally get to see whether action RPG Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning lives up to its considerable potential.

Check it all out in the March issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine, hitting newsstands on Tuesday, February 14—you know, that other V-Day.

What? The cover for a Sony exclusive BEFORE the game arrives so you can actually promote its launch? You should do that more often! (cough…U3…cough).

Give Journey the same privilege please because I’m sure that game will be transformative.

Ok, end of b*tching. PTOM remains my favorite read every month.

    We’re actively looking into a digital edition, but there’s nothing to report right now. Believe me, we’d love to do one.

I love PSOM and look forward to it every month. I just picked up this issue today and am about to read it. I just wanted to ask one thing.

Qore released last week and always showcases last months issue. I understand they are keeping the Qore month and PSOM month together. I feel like it is a waste, since I have always read that showcased issue almost a month ago. So can we change it to a preview of what to expect? It would have been a lot nicer to see info about this upcoming issue than one that was about to get pulled from the self. I like looking to the future and not the past.

    It’s always a little tricky keeping in sync with Qore because they do 12 shows a year and we do 13 issues. We’re actively talking with them now about it and hopefully we can get be more timely with the info in the near future.

Sweeeet can’t wait for Starhawk to come out!!

That would be pretty awesome if PTOM partnered up with PlayStation to have a digital distribution of the magazine on PS3/PSV and of course PC, Mac, and tablets.

Awesome looking issue, I’ll have to snag a copy.
