As was the case for Dragon Fantasy: Book I, Ceidz got to review Dragon Fantasy: Book II, a great retro-JRPG for those that love 16-bit RPG games. Muteki Corporation has been great for this second giveaway, and we have 2 PS3 and 2 Vita codes for you to win! Even though the game is cross-buy (meaning you get both the PS3 and Vita versions from a single purchase), the codes have to be activated from the corresponding console, so please leave a comment letting us know which version you want. You know the drill by now, so get started! Giveaway will end on November 4.
Recently, I had to change the internal batteries of two of my three DualShock 3 controllers.
Why you ask? Because, ahem, my kids brought the controllers in their bath (but hey, why the hell not?).
As you can guess, the controllers didn’t really like that special treatment, and after picking them up, I wasn’t even able to CHARGE them. I have tried putting them both in a plastic bag containing rice for a few days, but even if they were completely dry, I still wasn’t able to boot them up. (!@#$)
Long story short, at this point, I could either drop 110$ worth of hardware in the garbage, or try something desperate. That’s when I thought of buying a new controller battery on ebay for a few dollars, and try to see if it worked, and surprise: it did!
This procedure is however mainly adressed to “normal use” of controllers, like when you’re feeling that they’re not keeping up their charges long enough.
We’re back! I know we’ve been gone for the past two weeks, vacations and surgery recoveries have been taking priority. It’s good to be back though, especially with two games completed since the last podcast.
Tune in this week to listen to us discuss game delays, GTA V, my thoughts on Beyond: Two Souls, and whatever else we can remember from the weeks we didn’t have a show.
The Netherworld – a place where might makes right and today’s friends are tomorrow’s enemies. After a long journey with many ups and downs, Laharl finally finds himself as a full-fledged Overlord. However, the other denizens of the Netherworld do not see him as such, so he sets out on a journey with his loyal(!?) vassals to receive the respect he deserves. Along the way, Laharl will meet a girl who claims to be his sister, demons with bigger than usual chips on their shoulders, and find out that even his own body holds a few surprises for him…
Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness is the newest Strategy RPG (SRPG) from NIS America. This game is a direct sequel to 2003’s Disgaea: Hour of Darkness (PS2) and follows Laharl on his quest to become the Netherworld Overload along with his vassal Etna and the fallen angel Flonne.
Dood! Disgaea D2 (also known as Disgaea Dimension 2 in its original Japanese version) is an over-the-top Strategy RPG, in which pretty awesome and surprising attacks can happen. Expect to have a very fun time while traveling in the Netherworld with the trio!

The Last of Us
Zombies have been popular since the monster movies of the 1920s (if you’ve never seen Nosferatu or the original King Kong, I highly recommend you watch both. And then go on and watch all the other monster movies you can find, from before the Breen Code made horror movies go the way of The Blob.)
Clans is an integral part of the Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer experience and introduces new breakthroughs this year, including the Call of Duty Clan Wars game experience and cross-platform Clans for the first time.
Additionally, starting today through October …
