PS3BlogCast Episode 15


We’re back again, though it’s been a slow week for games seeing as PAX doesn’t start until the 26th so we won’t have any major game news until next week. Though that won’t stop us from talking about the few things we can while also cutting each other down apparently! Join Ace, FooBear, and I while we discuss what little news there is while attacking each other.

    Don’t dismiss Wii sales. Grandparents and parents money is still money that any of the big three wants in their bank accounts!

    Great podcast. Don’t understand all the BC3 love lately but I’ll let you have your opinion hehehe.

    Funny thing about the “90% of people don’t finish their games” … I’m at the opposite side of that bar. I’ve completed 40 games on the last 3 months (half of those for reviews here at PS3blog.net) since when I start a game I won’t let go until I complete it. I’ve got a huge 100+ games backlog that I’m taking care of here and there (for example, I got UC2 for free when I bought my PS3 but haven’t played it yet since I first wanted to play UC and when I platinumed that I wanted to complete other games first and so on). Having a Wii, a DSi, a PS3 and a PSP makes the game stack up quickly. Just looking at releases for 2010-2011 I can come up with a list of 40 games between all four systems that I’d like to buy and eventually play them start to finish.

    Only THREE games I’ve NEVER in my 27 years as a gamer have been Metal Gear Solid 3 and Wild Arms 5 on PS2 and Prototype on PS3.

    I know I finish all my games (minus the few I mentioned) I think it’s weird to spend the money on something and not use it.

    “Pugs not Drugs” lol

    I finish most retail games I get, but most downloadables I have I usually don’t… For the PS3 I haven’t finished Mass Effect 2 and I’m slowly progressing with GTA IV. However, I also don’t trade in any of my games because I always say “I might give it another go in the future” and then I never play the game again ;p

    Oh, and stop hating Single Player games, honestly, a game like Skyrim easily offers you 300+ hours of entertainment. I’ve played Fallou 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Oblivion, Dragon Age Origins (these are just the recent titles) and a bunch other RPGs that are single player only for well over 400 hours each, I hardly accept the argument this is not worth it!

    oh, and Rage will be released October 4th!

    This podcast (despite Foobear little episode at the beginning) was hilarious and really good!

    ps: Ace sounded like a lesbian truck driver when he did that new yorker impression
