PS3BlogCast Episode 83


It’s the first week of April and we’re starting to hit a slow down of game releases. We do have two big ones this month, Soul Sacrifice for Vita and Dead Island Riptide for PS3. I’m looking forward to both of those games personally.

There isn’t much in the way of news, but we do get into a good amount of Battlefield 4 talk, MGSV, and then into what we thought of Tomb Raider. It doesn’t get too spoiler heavy, but for those of you who are on the look out we begin to discuss the game at about 47:50. I give you a good heads up so don’t worry. I also do the secret word before hand. The spoiler talk doesn’t last too long since we some how get off topic of the game and into a whole different topic.

No Isli this week, unfortunately, but you do have myself and MissXya. Enjoy!

    Can someone please explain to me how increasing the level cap in Borderlands 2 requires a lot of work? And why they’re charging for it?

  4. #4 by Oly on April 3rd, 2013 [ 131925 Points ]

    Um.. they didn’t charge for it.. it’s free

  5. #5 by EdEN on April 3rd, 2013 [ 136079 Points ]

    @Oly: Um, no. It costs $5 and is DLC. It is “free” for those with a Season Pass.

    i beat bl2 with my buddies and I couldn’t get myself to grind to max level. It didn’t feel fun anymore just grinding levels in places ive already been /quests ive done already

    @Eden: I completely agree. It’s absolutely ridiculous. Borderlands 2 was incredibly fun for a while, but more and more it seems like they are just milking it. The coding to change the level cap, although slightly more complex than just putting in a new number, still isn’t enough work to justify charging for it. It also doesn’t help that the DLC has been subpar at best, and the game feels stripped of additional elements that Borderlands had.

    Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite are both awesome and I can’t wait for The Last of Us. :)

    I was gonna comment on something about Tomb Raider before we got WAY off topic and I just remembered XD
    I want more games with a UI like Tomb Raider, in that it barely exists. It only comes up when you need it and the rest of the time you get a full screen of this beautiful game to really appreciate. Like playing through a cutscene. I didn’t even notice until about 3 hours in the game when I realized I was definitely past the intro/tutorial and the UI I’d be looking at for 10 hours should have popped up. It was such a subtle touch but I fucking loved it.

    @missxya: Toki Tori 2 on Wii U has no UI, and only two actions to perform, but said actions have different reactions in the characters near the little yellow bird… and I loved that! No signs, no instructions, no long tutorials with walls of text.
