Here’s a video with the Community Manager at Dice Daniel Matros talking about the new Vietnam DLC that is going to hit Battlefield Bad Company 2. He talks about why they created the Vietnam DLC and what you can expect from it.
We have seen this game being tossed around on this site for some time now as it is an important game from no other then Housemarque who created Super Stardust HD.
Dead Nation will release on the PlayStation Store …
A week ago I got my grubby hands on The Fight: Lights Out (regards to Trev & Tosh for hooking me up with a promo copy). With me being heavily into sports and somewhat liking UFC etc, I wanted to get involved in the sport without physically getting battered and bruised – so, what better way to do this than play a game of The Fight: Lights Out.
I always seemed to think I was a pretty athletic/fit person due to the amount of sports I used to play, however I don’t think I was prepared for what I was about to encounter.
Imageepoch has announced this traditional looking SRPG for the PC as a browser based game but also will be coming to the PS3 on PSN. It will be a free to play game most likely charging for in game items and such. There will be online play, social elements and cross platform gaming across all 3 announced platforms for this game.
It has a very similar look to Final Fantasy Tactics.
There are 4 types of character classes, with 3 classes in each type. Warriors: Fighter, Knight, Berserker. Bandits: Rogue, Ranger, Assassin. Magicians: Mage, Wizard, Sorcerer. Monks: Acolyte, Cleric, Enchanter.
There is no definite word on if it is coming to the states or not, but they have an overseas publishing deal with Nippon Ichi so chances are good.

UPDATED after the fold.
Last week I started what I hoped to become a short-lived but weekly series on the state of Black Ops. I had assumed that Treyarch would continue putting out live patches and PSN patches to address issues that we’re all having. Unfortunately, nothing has changed in the last week. There have been no PSN patches, and any live patches that did occur were transparent enough that the game doesn’t seem to have changed at all.
To recap, the four biggest issues outstanding for Black Ops on the PS3 are frame rate issues, crashing/freezing, matchmaking, and bad spawns. Add to that sundry other issues like the fact that chat icons don’t work at all, and the game aborting and giving you a loss when someone quits to XMB, and Treyarch really has their work cut out for them.
One inconvenience for users who want to buy their second PS3 for a variety of reasons, or simply continue a game at a friend’s house, is locked game saves. In the early times of PS3, few games, if any, used locked game saves. This allowed people to share their save files, not a bad thing at all, but also allowed the users to easily backup their game saves, take it anywhere, and continue their game on another PS3. The open nature of the save files also lead to some save file hacking, with the potential to give unfair advantage to users in competitive multiplayer or leader boards. That’s the major negative side of unlocked saves.
