Why I’m addicted to PS Vita’s Montezuma Blitz and tips to Score BIG !

March 10, 2014 | | 5 Comments

Treasures of Montezuma Blitz is a freemium game on the PS Vita. While at first this seems like just another match-three game (and watching the video below will most probably leave you with that impression), I’ve been playing this game with a few friends for weeks now, and I am proudly very addicted to this game! If you tried that game back when it was released last year, you have to try it out again since they completely enhanced the gameplay with the recent updates!

In this post, I’ll explain why I’m addicted to this game, and I will share with you some strategies on how to collect more crystals and how to reach millions of points!

Restore File System - PS3 Safe Mode / Recovery Menu


How long does this take? Only 2 – 5 minutes. It’s a good thing to do if you’re having any issues with your PS3. Say, for example, your blu-ray drive having issues, trophy syncing, performance issues, etc. If your PS3 ever shut off due to a power outage or shut off due to a buggy game. This would be a wise thing to do. Basically, what it’s doing is checking the PS3’s OS (operating system) for any corrupted files and restoring them if needed.

Rebuild Database - PS3 Safe Mode / Recovery Menu


This does not delete game saves. Another question I get is how long does it take. Only about 2 – 5 minutes. For more FAQ’s check the bottom of this post. This is a good thing to do from time to time to keep your PS3 running smoothly and happy. I did this for the first time in over 4 years, so long over due. Earlier this week I was trying to watch some videos off the internal hard drive and it was lagging and sound came in and out for some reason.

So I thought I’d try to rebuild the ps3 database to see if it would fix it. It was perfect after that. So if you have other slow down, a weird glitch or maybe your trophies take a while to sync this would be wise to do. Check out the FAQ section at the bottom if you have any questions.

Tips and Tricks: Manually Adjusting Custom Soundtrack Volume

November 23, 2010 | | 4 Comments

As you know, I’ve been a Smackdown game fan since they first came out. Although I’m not into wrestling as much now as I was when I was a kid, I still enjoy these games. Over the past few years, the games allowed for you to use custom soundtracks for the wrestlers, which is a neat feature (and on PS3, works better since you don’t have to create playlists or anything).

With this year’s giving you the ability to download created superstars, with editing options (finally), the use of custom soundtracks and theme music is definitely more rampant. The only downside is that, more often than not (and likely on any other game that supports custom soundtracks and no way to adjust volume), the music is far too loud and drowns out the game’s audio (even if the in-game audio is maxed out on the volume). With no way to adjust it in-game, we have to manually do so. Luckily, I have a solution to that problem.

Tips and Tricks: Redeeming PSN Codes on the Web

November 21, 2010 | | 5 Comments

I thought I’d start doing a PSN/PS3 “Tips and Tricks” post every week until I run out of things to talk about. I have some good posts planned, but welcome any ideas you all might have. Special thanks to Jay for creating the banner!!

First up, I wanted to show everyone how to enter PSN Codes using their PC. This would be for a PlayStation®Network Card number or a promotion code for beta codes, character skins, etc. This really comes in handy with the Twitter or Website giveaways when they list a bunch of codes and you have to be the first to grab it.

PSN account management over the world wide web has been available for a long time now, however PlayStation does not make it easy to find. Searching for it doesn’t work, and even going directly to the PSN store website doesn’t give you the option to find it.
So here’s how:
