Originally slated for release on August 24th, the PC edition of Dark Souls was announced with exclusive content consisting of bosses, dungeons, and more. As you can tell from the word “exclusive”, that usually means “never to be released anywhere else”. Fortunately, things seem to have changed, and the new content will be coming to the PS3 this winter as DLC, for only $14.99.
We had a staggering 179 entries in total for this giveaway. Before I announce the winners, I would like to give a special thanks to SCEE and Tosh for providing us with two copies of this collection for all of the readers here!
Listen up everybody! We are giving away two brand new copies of the Jak and Daxter HD Collection. One lucky winner in the US and one lucky winner in Europe will walk away with this fantastic title.
Now this giveaway will be a little different than any we’ve had in the past, so read on carefully.
Everyone hates HD collections until the one series they love comes along and then suddenly their attitude changes. For quite a while now, I have refrained from buying any HD collections because I viewed them as a cheap tactic to earn a few bucks. I passed on the God of War remakes, I didn’t even bat an eye at the Tomb Raider games, and in the end, even the Team ICO collection didn’t sway my stance. However, the Jak and Daxter HD collection is the series that finally won me over and made me rethink my views on the situation.
When I first started replaying the games, my biggest fear was that my nostalgic childhood bias had lead me astray, and I would realize the games really weren’t that good (or worse, were just plain horrible). Thankfully, I was completely and utterly wrong. The Jak and Daxter HD collection is what every HD collection and reboot so far should have been. It contains three fantastic games, a true HD upgrade, trophies, and a low price. The games have racing, platforming, shooting, exploring-something for everyone.
If you’ve never played the games before (and there is really no good reason to have EVER passed them up if you owned a PS2), now is your chance to jump on board and trek through the story. The Jak and Daxter series creates incredible worlds and fills them with lovable and quirky characters. They all have that unique and illusive quality to them that makes you remember the games years later.
Hope everyone has a good holiday and they are ready for the New Year!
I know all of you will be buying Uncharted 3 and Battlefield 3 for your loved ones (or maybe Santa will bring it for you), so I will be hosting a game night on Dec. 27th. We will start with Uncharted and then move on to Battlefield depending on interest. Please join the XMB chat so that we can all communicate easily when setting up the first game. After you join the XMB chat, I will tell you the secret word so that you can get your points for the night.
We will begin around 7 pm CST (1 am GMT), and I can play for 2-3 hours.
EA Sports has released a new trailer for their upcoming game SSX (previously SSX: Deadly Descents) featuring a remixed version of “It’s Tricky” by Run D.M.C. There is no word on whether the song will be in the game, but the trailer is a throwback to SSX Tricky, an earlier title in the series.
SSX was originally being marketed as a grittier version of the past games, but with this video, it seems EA Sports is finally showing fans the humorous and over the top gameplay that they have been accustomed to.
