As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a PlayStation fan. I think the game that escalated that fandom without a doubt has got to be the Uncharted series.
It’s that time again with the UC3 Beta coming out today on the PSN around 2pm PST (according to Evan Wells’ twitter) and then I’ll be able to go home and starting handing tickets for the “pain train”. The videos showcasing the new maps that will be available to play will be “Airstrip” & “Chateau” along with some co-op options.
Now if you couldn’t tell, I’m just this side of being excited to be included in this boner-inducing beta and not only will you be able to play the beta – you’ll be able to earn in-game rewards for the actual game when it comes out in November. Now that is something to write home to the alumni association about.
If for some reason you do not have this game, you are truly missing out on a great game! It has a great single player and multiplayer which I still enjoy to this day. Our very own Foobear408 scored us a giveaway copy of Uncharted 2 Game of the Year Edition. It’s a sealed new copy as well. This time you have a chance to double your entries if you listened to Episode 6 of the PS3BlogCast. There is a secret code word mentioned somewhere in the podcast. Just send me a private message and mention the secret code word and I’ll put you down for double entries!

Kmart is killing the competition with this one. The recently boxed Call of Duty Black Ops Bundle is going for $299, along with a $50 gift card. If that still isn’t enough to get you to jump on the bandwagon, how about 2 free titles from the greatest hits collection?
Looks like another win is in the books for the Video Game Industry. The supreme court voted 7-2 to uphold a federal appeals court decision to throw out the proposed ban of violent video game sales to minors. Read the rest of the story below.
I really like it when publishers are kind enough to sum up their game so everyone can know what they’re getting into:
NormalTanks is a fast-paced multi-directional arcade shooter featuring classic run’n’gun gameplay with 3 difficulty settings.
There are 8 challenging, dynamic and hazardous environments to tackle and inside every enemy base or forests and mountains, you have to choose your battle tactics carefully to survive!
Over the 30 dangerous enemies types on your heroic way, including various tanks, heavy war machines and helicopters, robots and biomechanical creatures, pillboxes and SSM missile sites and every level ends with its own, unique boss to defeat.
Crash, kill and destroy them all to move forward! By using special power-ups, you can upgrade your tank abilities: cannon, machine gun, and armor to help you progress.
Some levels transform you to tiny bot to stealth pass near the enemies and deactivate energy fields or to giant walking robot, which demolish everything on his way to the alien’s hive!
