Killzone 3 Beta | Game Night 10.26 Recap

October 27, 2010 | | 11 Comments

We had Luke and FrenchK (he also brought along one of his friends) show up last night. But Luke was a little late because he was chatting in the Live Chat on PS3Blog.net so I had to jump on and tell him that we are waiting for him, lol.

Since this is a Beta we can’t talk about the game really. But the first match we had to wait a bit for opponents to show up which was fine. We had some fun testing out the jet packs and exploring the map. At least I did, first time I’ve seen it. The last match was very annoying because of a few select people killed us off extremely easily and quickly a LOT.

PlayStation Phone

October 26, 2010 | | 12 Comments

I believe this is a leak, but it looks legit:

  • Still a non-final prototype.
  • Believed to be Android 3.0
  • Slim chance of a 2010 launch. Early 2011 is more likely
  • Looks like two finger multi-touch pad in between … Read More

Official Review: Smackdown vs Raw 2011

October 26, 2010 | | 7 Comments

There are numerous game franchises out there that have an update every year. You have your Maddens, NBA games, FIFA, MLB, Guitar Heroes, Call of Dutys, etc. You also have the Smackdown vs. Raw series. Out of all the annual franchise games, Smackdown vs. Raw (and going further back, the Smackdown franchise) has always been the one I would spend countless hours playing, and 2011’s entry has proven to be no different.

To my memory, I have played every single game since the original Smackdown on the PS1 (Though it wasn‘t the only WWE/F franchise I‘ve played). The nice thing about this one in particular is they are always trying something different every year, rather than doing minor tweaks or just updating the roster (which seems to be a commonality amongst most annual sports games).

As many of you know, I recently got to check out the title in Los Angeles back in August, where I came back and gave you my hands-on preview. With the time span between then an now out of the way, how does the retail version of the game stack up to past titles and the promises of the new features that have been announced? Hopefully this review will answer those questions.

Harmonix losing some respect points with Rock Band 3

October 26, 2010 | | 15 Comments

Harmonix’s flagship brand, Rock Band 3, released yesterday. For fans of the music / rhythm game, and its many iterations, this game is the culmination of years of work and thousands (over 2,000 now) of songs. Yes, Rock Band 3 introduces new modes,  new instruments, a refined experience, and a partridge in a pear tree. One of the greatest features of Harmonix’s games is how much they seem to go to bat for the consumer by trying to provide ways to make their Rock Band experience that much more enjoyable. One of the ways Harmonix has done this is allowing song imports: Rock Band 1 imported 55 of 58 songs into Rock Band 2 for a $5 fee; Lego Rock Band imported all songs into Rock Band 2 for a $10 fee; any of the track packs, or the AC/DC pack imported into Rock Band for no extra fee. The only drawback was The Beatles Rock Band was not importable into other games, considering the licensing it took to get the Beatles into Rock Band in the first place, I don’t begrudge Harmonix for that at all.
