Netflix subscribers who have not made changes to their account before September 1st will see the billing prices change dramatically. Folks who paid 9.99 for one (1) at a time unlimited DVD and Streaming will see a 60% increase and now be billed 15.98. The reason for this is because Netflix has now split it’s Disk and Streaming services into two separate services. One of the things that many people find to be equally upsetting is that there is no discount for those who select both services.
If you plan to make any changes to your subscription, remember to so before 12:00am September 1st. Me and another household in my family are switching to a DVD/BR only plan due the much larger movie selection and far superior picture quality.
The official Starhawk website, at www.starhawkthegame.com, has the above image displayed on it’s main page. I also got a postcard at the San Diego Comic Con, with the same picture on it. Hidden in the picture, is a PSN code that is redeemable for a Starhawk PS3 theme. It’s pretty easy to see, but if for some reason you can’t see it, just ask and I’ll post the code below for you. Enjoy!
If there was ever one great feature in a Driver game that I always enjoyed, it was the Film Director mode. There was something great about setting up cameras and filming a replay, making for some awesome chase scenes. I used this feature extensively in Driver 3, as I was allowed to download and upload clips I, and others, have uploaded online (I owned the game on XBox, so I uploaded my videos to Live).
What’s great about this game’s is that you can do the Film Director mode at any point, rather than it automatically starting from the point you began playing. If you wanted to do a video of a police chase, you had to be creative. I often pulled up next to cops at an intersection with a red light. Light turns green and I’d smoke the tires, causing the officer to chase me. It was a lot of fun.
With the addition of movie-inspired car chases in this game, as shown above with the Bullitt-inspired chase (save for a few missing details, including the wrong year Charger and the badges on the Mustang), it’s a perfect way to use this feature. I can’t be the only one excited about this game, can I? Pick it up September 2nd in EU (and maybe AU), and September 6th in NA.
