  1. It“s a little after 4 AM on my side of the world. Tonight, I elected to spin my insomnia into productivity by watching this morning“s SCEJA Press Conference. The presentation went for two hours and covered games from both sides of the world on both major Sony platforms. There was about a half-an-hour dedicated to the PlayStation Vita that included announcements of new games like Luminous Arc Infinity and Disgaea 5, new system SKUs (so much pink!), release dates for games we knew about already like Phantasy Star Nova, and more. But rather than recapping the entire two-hour show (which included the Japanese debut of many trailers/games shown here in the United States at E3 2014): here“s everything new and noteworthy from the broadcast: First and FOREmost: Hot Shots Golf is headed to PlayStation 4. This new project will feature "open-world entertainment in the form of golf". No release window or title was given for the new project, but longtime fans of the series (who haven't played a Hot Shots Golf game on consoles since 2008) are likely glad to see it mentioned. Secondly, a brief trailer for Resident Evil Revelations 2 was shown, highlighting the game's visuals. Looks like rumors were true! It“s confirmed for Early 2015 in Japan. After that, Yakuza 0 was shown. There was a bunch of new information offered during the presentation, starting with the fact that the game takes place in 1988. It will also feature cross-play between the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. And then came the part of the night where the room fell silent and everyone watched in awe, then screamed with excitement. Persona 5 has been confirmed for PlayStation 4, as well as PS3 (we knew that part already). Feast your eyes on the trailer above, the first footage of the game since its announcement last year! God Eater 2: Rage Burst has been announced for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Senran Kagura: Estival Versus has been announced for PlayStation 4. That“s the first time this franchise has appeared on a console! This is also the part where I should mention that the Tekken Team are working on an a Project Morpheus game for PlayStation 4 called Summer Lesson. A new Ys project is in the works for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, coming in 2015. The footage shown makes me think it“s going to use the party system like in Ys: Memories of Celceta. Oh, right. And then Square-Enix showed up at the very end of the presentation with a new Dragon Quest game. The footage looked absolutely incredible...and for a fleeting moment, I thought what we were looking at was Dragon Quest XI. But, in a unique twist--the new game is Dragon Quest Heroes, co-developed by the folks responsible for Dynasty Warriors. That“s right--Hyrule Warriors isn“t the only high-profile Musuo cross-over game on the block. Anyone reading this think there“s more where that came from? ...More importantly, does anyone think Dragon Quest Heroes will make its way to the West? That pretty much covers it for this morning“s heavy hitters. If you“d like to watch the entire presentation, I“ve embedded it below. There“s certainly more to see! I“ll keep my ear to the ground about most of the titles I“ve mentioned, especially with TGS looming ever closer on the horizon. http://youtu.be/5D-Wr_3-E5U
  2. Not sure why, and not sure how long it lasts, but Arkham Origins Blackgate is $20 for a download code for the Vita version. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00GGUSZVY/ref=nosim/cheapassgam08-20 It's only the Vita download, physical copies are still $35 for Vita and I think $30 for 3DS. Anyway, if $20 is your "eh, I'll try it" point for this game, there it is.
  3. 8GB $9.99 http://www.amazon.com/8GB-PlayStation-Vita-Memory-Card/dp/B006JKAS6G/ref=sr_1_sc_1?t=slickdeals&tag=slickdeals&ascsubtag=eQSNimWOEeOapPY2E6PhoAz9E1_iZQs3_0_0_0&s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1387104246&sr=1-1-spell&keywords=8gb+vuita+card 16GB $19.99 Temp OOS, but can still order http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B006JKASAC/ref=dp_olp_new?t=slickdeals&tag=slickdeals&ascsubtag=mQ6PkGWOEeOpALb8dtOeEwz9E1_iZQs3_0_0_0&ie=UTF8&condition=new&qid=1387104246&sr=1-1-spell

    E3 2013: Sony Conference Recap

    A lot of people were excited to see the large showing of games for the Xbox One, but there were still some issues. The PlayStation 4 has been playing ti close to the vest, however, as to whether they've got any responses to that, Now, at E3 2013, the battleground has been set. Will this be when Sony decides to take off the kid gloves and start punching Xbox in the face? Or has the library revealed for the Xbox One, as well as the hype train from it being more recently announced, given Microsoft a chance to win E3 once and for all? Check out the recap below to find out! [6:17 PM] Okay, so they were almost 20 minutes late, but hey, it's finally starting! Some sweet jams play while swirly ribbon-y things flip around the screen. Face button shapes appearing and whatnot. [6:18] The jams are being pumped up, while we get a montage of a bunch of different games. The Last of Us, GTA5, Final Fantasy X, some baseball, other stuff. We are now moving into our third genre of music. [6:20] Jack Tretton takes the stage. The bass has been dropped, now he's going to drop some Sony business... after he talks about how much he loves everyone. The feelings are high. [6:22] He said "Playstation Vita," which I thought was illegal for Sony. Time to drop some knowledge about the Vita. "Vita owners have purchased an average of ten games." He doesn't specify what kind of games, so that is probably the most inclusive statistic. Arkham Origins, Counterspy, Doki Doki Universe, Kill Zone Mercenary, and Tearaway. God of War HD 1 and 2, Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2, Flower, Dead Nation are all coming to the Vita. [6:25] The Walking Dead, 400 Days, is coming this summer to Vita. A bundle with the full first series and the new one come this Summer. The Vita's supposedly super-attached to the PS4. It's supposed to be the ultimate companion app. [6:26] PlayStation 3 game lineup time. They're opening with The Last of Us, which Tretton identified as "Game of the Year candidate." I think it's already pretty clear how dope this game is supposed to be, based on reviews and stuff. [6:28] Puppeteer is next. The trailer shows off the platforming and stuff. Very LBP-esque. Immediately after that, the trailer for Rain, coming this Fall. Soft music and stuff to make us all cry openly. [6:29] Beyond: Two Souls. Willem Dafoe's here, telling Ellen Page to go join the military, and the rest of the trailer os far is about her doing just that. Running through tires and firing guns and stuff. [6:30] Now Ellen Page has to go hunt down terrorists. This trailer makes it look basically like a military shooter, with mild sexual tension between Ellen Page and Random Guy. [6:31] Gran Turismo 6! More cars that look good, more driving around. Weird emphasis on solar panels. It has a new physics engine, so your car can flip. New tire models, new suspension model. New aerodynamics model. Adaptive tessellation. New rendering engine. [6:32] So the lesson to take away, as with every racing game, is that cars go fast, stuff looks mad real. You should more or less know what to expect with this stuff. [6:33] That was all for PS3 stuff. Tretton's now talking about The Last of Us again. [6:34] It's Batman time. Bane was there, Black Skull have a small amount of face time. Black Mask is not happy with Batman, so he puts a hit out on The Batman. Deathstroke, Deadshot, and Bane. [6:35] If your fears about Troy Baker as the Batman were sincere, you have nothing to worry about. Gadgets are different, even in a prequel, they're better. As usual. The Joker had a bit of voice-time as well. [6:36] Some PlayStation-exclusive stuff. Also, an exclusive GTA5 bundle for $299 for PS3. Also, a headset, because you want to use stage time to talk about peripherals. [6:37] Sony dreams of bringing a more "Immersive, innovative experience." Let's go ahead and check that off of everyone's bingo lists. [6:38] Andrew House is here to talk about PlayStation 4. [6:39] The PlayStation 4! It's....! Well, it's a black box. Kind of looks like the PlayStation 3 mixed with a Wii? Or like a Blu-Ray player. [6:40] They strive to assure that their services are relevant and meaningful, House says. They're showing a bunch of videos and stuff, so I guess they're covering the Microsoft in the livingroom stuff... Why? [6:41] CEO of Sony Entertainment Michael Lynton takes the stage. Lynton says they're ready to do next generation stuff "for gamers." He's discussing the music and other media, and name-drops Daft Punk, Nine In Nails, and Jack White. The '90s live! [6:43] Sony's big connections to all forms of media are apparently to play into the PlayStation Network, and the programming is to be tailor-made for gamers, so he says. [6:44] Video Unlimited, where you can buy videos and stuff. [6:45] Music Unlimited is still a thing, and can be used on non-PlayStation stuff. [6:46] Redbox Instant is coming to PlayStation Network. They're making a point where, as they talk about the media-oriented stuff, they keep saying, "This is tailored to gamers." [6:47] Shuhei Yoshida is taking the stage now that they're done talking about that junk. [6:48] "I'm so excited to begin... *pause*" Yoshida is wearing a really sleek suit. "We, the gamers, use social media" for the purpose of discussing games. Yoshida discusses his Twitter. [6:50] "A highly imaginative new IP, coming exclusive to the PS4." Santa Monica Studios. Looks sorta of Steampunk-y. Victorian-esque setting, airships of some variety, as well as guns. Whitechapel. A woman with a gun, some guys with awesome facial hair. [6:52] Uh oh! The carriage driver was killed! They have radios, and subway trains. [6:53] A bunch of groaning humanoids are all in the fog and causing a ruckus, so the characters are killing them. The Order is the name of the game. [6:54] Yoshida says the demos and stuff will be online on their Facebook and Twitter, and on PlayStation.com. [6:55] Killzone Shadow Fall. As expected, it's another FPS, though this seems a little more colorful, and the gadgets include a drone that can put up shields and stuff. [6:56] RACING time! Driveclub, which was just pretty cars and driving fast. [6:56] inFamous: Second Son. The main dude is a vandal, his brother is a cop. The facial capture is really good. [6:58] Nirvana remix in the trailer... [6:58] Another look at Knack, which still looks pretty good. Very briefly. [6:58] All three of those games will be released on launch. Q1 of 2014. [6:59] Quantic Dream has done another tech demo, this one named The Dark Sorcerer. The Old Man is back! He's the Dark Sorcerer. [7:01] Oh, it's a funny! It's a film-screen room! (Note: It was not funny) [7:03] Time to talk about indies. Adam Boyes takes the stage. He says that Shuhei Yoshida has the most infectious smile in the industry. He is not wrong. [7:04] Supergiant Games's Amir Rao Greg Kasavin take the stage. Transistor is to make its debut on PS4 early next year. Cloudbank is the city, where everyone has a voice, but some people are disappearing. The art style is similar-ish to Bastion, and the gameplay is not dissimilar, but the feel of the game seems pretty different. [7:06] Indies are to be able to self-publish their own content. [7:07] Don't Starve is apparently PS4-bound. Tribute Games is working with them again to bring Mercenary Kings to PS4. Young Horses is joining. Octodad: Dadliest Catch is coming to PS4. Secret Ponchos, a shooter/fighting(?) game, Outlast, Odd World Inhabitants. New remake of Oddworld. Galaxy, a sidescrolling space shooter. [7:10] Each of these above are PS4 exclusives. [7:11] Diablo III will have exclusive items from PlayStation games. [7:12] Tetsuya Nomura left a video message about Square Enix. There's a Final Fantasy Versus XIII trailer. That child's face is stupid-looking. [7:14] A little bit of gameplay. It's action-oriented, some wall-climbing. It looks largely like a hack-and-slash. Some familiar classic monsters, like a Behemoth, Leviathan... Well, it's Final Fantasy XV now. [7:16] A new Kingdom Hearts trailer! Recaps of the old games, and now Sora is on Destiny Island, in a different version of his KH2 outfit. Actual gameplay! "Now in Development," meaning we'll see it in 20 years. [7:18] Final Fantasy XIV will be coming to PS4 and PS3. Pirates PIRATES Assassin's Creed: Black Flag pirates. [7:20] The environments look pretty great, a rich forest, fog and stuff. [7:22] The gameplay looks mostly samey, but if you like AssCreed, the jungle environment might be reason enough to pick it up. [7:23] Back to set-pieces! And Kenway's on a boat now, because pirate. Ship-to-ship combat and what not. The demo's freezing to business. They cut it. [7:25] Watch_Dogs. You can drive, go in coffee shops. [7:30] A little more gameplay than we've seen in the past, showing off some of the hacking and ranged stuff. [7:31] Ugh, it looks like they're using the hacking as a generic puzzle-solving method. [7:33] PlayStation owners get an hour of additional gameplay for Watch_Dogs. [7:33] Sports time! Lebron James is playing basketball digitally. It's a bunch of glamour shots. NBA2k14. [7:35] Bethesda time, The Elder Scrolls Online. For the first time, this actually looks like a TES game to me. It comes to PS4 Spring, 2014. It will have a beta first on PlayStation 4. [7:38] Some dead bodies, a junked up car... Is... Is that a Raider outfit...? Is this... [7:39] Is this.... Oh. It's just Mad Max. [7:40] Exclusive Road Warrior survival kit only on PlayStation. Jack Tretton is back on stage. [7:41] PS4 won't impose restrictions on used games. The audience is crapping themselves right now. [7:42] Just as the applause dies down, it starts back up again. They don't require an online connection, yet another audience cheer. [7:44] Cross-game voice chat, transition to friends network, share button, whatnot. PlayStation Plus is a focus now. PS+ membership carries over to PS4. They secretly slipped in that multiplayer is a little more in-line with Microsoft's previous stuff, in that you have to pay for multiplayer. [7:45] PlayStation Plus gets Driveclub on PS4 at the PS4 launch. [7:46] A new game every month for free, Don't Starve, Outlast, Secret Ponchos as examples. "PlayStation is all about games." [7:47] Now, Destiny is on-screen. Some ambient music, "Earth, Many Years from Now." Landscapes. A small collection of rusted out cars, and some bug monsters jumping around and scoping down planes and stuff. [7:50] It's some normal FPS gameplay so far, multiplayer. They're approaching a huge city. The lighting is pretty, it's fairly colorful as a game, relatively-speaking. There's some magic. He summoned a "ghost" which flies around and provides a flashlight. [7:51] There are integrated HUD features, like the ammo count on an LED screen on the gun, but it stil lhas a conventional hud for some reason. [7:52] A little combat. Iron sights, soe melee. The bad guys can fire Spirit Bomb-looking things. I think Jack Tretton just cackled. [7:54] Jack Tretton's a terrible team player. It has loots and stuff. [7:57] A third player shows up, a public event. Apparently a lot of people can join and they are fighting in an arena. Dropship is dropping stuff, including a gant robot spider monster. [7:58] Lots of people showing up now. They're shooting the legs off of the robot spider. [7:59] Despite the awful stage banter, Destiny looks like a pretty solid FPS. [8:00] Andrew House is back. They're discussing the cloud-based videogame stuff. Cloud service is available in 2014, including PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, allowing fast gaming networks. [8:02] PlayStation 4 is priced at $399. It'll be out this holiday season. And that's it! Sony had one little slow point, but they apparently were geared to fight in this E3. They addressed people's fears about Microsoft, brought out a strong and diverse line-up, and even nailed it on price. Online connection has to be paid for now, and the Vita got very, very little love on stage, but other than that, it looks like a categorical victory for Sony. Recap written by Marshall Henderson. Screencaps provided by Jason Clement. But who wore it better? Sony. Sony wore it better, but if you disagree, or just want to let loose, hit the comments below and let your voice be heard!
  5. I want to think the best of people, I really do. But it isn't easy when the internet exists. I can travel to any gaming forum in the world and odds are high I'll find someone arguing over absolutely nothing. You can go into threads with legitimate questions and you'll end up reading a six page flame war about dinosaurs. While that is hilarious in it's own way, there are also communities on the internet that just allow you to see the worst in people. You'll find them chock full of liars, cheaters, griefers and everything else under the rainbow of hilarity that is the gaming community. Read on to see some of my personal favorites that prove just how awful we really are. The Xbox Ban Appeal Forums My goodness where do we start? The Xbox ban appeals forum has so many different gems of absolute idiocy that a whole new site was made just to showcase some of them. That's how bad it is over there. And when it comes to lying, the people on the Xbox forums are just the absolute worst. I'll be giving examples of better ones in a little bit, but for now enjoy the stupidity. First of all you have the people with modded consoles. Whether they're using it for piracy or not isn't really the issue when it comes to these people. They have decided to mod their avatar. You know what an avatar is, right? That little person you dress up to represent you on the Xbox Live service? You know, the one that everyone can see? My God I wish I could have seen that conversation play out. So they go onto the forums saying it isn't fair that they were banned! They clearly did nothing wrong so they shouldn't be punished. They don't even know how to mod so it couldn't have been them! As they're saying all of this, you can see their bright pink avatar sitting in the corner with their crazy light up eyes. And they wonder how you could prove they modded anything. And then you have the boosters. I honestly don't even know what boosters are. Apparently you give them your account info and some insane amount of money and they'll raise your level in Call of Duty. The only way they can really advertise what they do is by putting it in their profile, again something everyone can see. And just like clockwork they're on the appeals forum saying the Xbox team has no proof they did it despite it being right there in front of them. While we're on the subject of proof, people seem to not understand that the Xbox team can save this information or watch what you're doing online in a game. Imagine different parent's surprise when they find out their son was banned for flashing his junk on Uno. ------------------------- The DayZ Ban Appeal Forums The difference between the Xbox Ban Appeals and the DayZ Ban Appeals is like the difference between night and day. While in the Xbox appeals forum you'll find a huge list of people getting served by Xbox staff with evidence of their random stupidity, the DayZ forums are the exact opposite. You see, there is no evidence. Before we get into this, here's some background for you. The DayZ server owners are unlike server owners in any other game. They have to follow a very strict set of rules due to the fact that each character is persistent on every single server. Ban someone for no reason and you screw everything up for them in every other server. So admins can only ban in the most extreme situations such as racism and hacking. Anything else and they risk their server being blacklisted. So when someone gets banned the admins have to have a good reason for doing so. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on who you are, these admins don't seem to understand they need evidence to support their claims. Thirty pages of novel levels of deception. All in broken English. This leads to some hilarious amounts of finger pointing on the official DayZ forums. In one such instance a player said he was banned just for logging onto this persons server. That person came on and said he was lying, he banned him for hacking. Then about five other people all came in saying the guy was hacking. You would think it would be an open and shut case, but noooo. As it turns out, those people that all came in saying the banned player were actually friends of the admin who banned the player because he and his clan were trying to cheat to get the best gear. This was proven when one of the banned player's friends joined the server and recorded the admin banning him too. The server was blacklisted and the idiot admin was out $150 (around the amount it costs to host a server). The best thing about all this is the fact that it wasn't an isolated incident. This is how nearly every single ban appeal thread plays out. Everyone is constantly lying to try to get their way and there is no way to tell who is lying and who isn't. Its insanely fun to read though. ------------------------- Broken System Sellers Consider this one a personal pet peeve of mine, but I absolutely hate people who sell broken systems and handhelds. This is because almost all of them are liars trying to make a buck off of a broken electronic. While I'm certainly not the best repairman, I just like to buy broken electronics (usually at a huge discount) and fix them up myself. But over the last year this has become increasingly difficult. Not because the technology has become more confusing, but because the people selling the broken systems don't seem to understand they can't get new system prices for their broken merchandise. Let's look at the Playstation Vita as a good example. $250 new, about $165 used, and for some reason, $155 broken. Eh, it'll probably buff out. $200 sounds like a fair asking price. This isn't broken like a bad battery either. This is broken as in "I smashed the screen." No matter which auction you click on ebay, if the screen is broken then every single one will have the exact same description. "The screen is cracked but its a $40 fix!" First of all, a Vita screen is at least $140. Secondly, if the digitizer is broken too then you'll have to drop another $50. So that bargain bin price of $150 has just become $340, nearly $100 more than a brand new console. I've talked with these sellers before. I've shown them the actual prices of replacement parts, I've explained to them how hard it is to actually fix and shown them links to working consoles selling for as much as their broken one. I usually get a reply along the lines of "If you don't like it then don't buy it." And they're still confused as to why their perfectly good nonworking system hasn't sold yet. ------------------------- Thankfully, these people don't represent the whole of gaming. At least I hope they don't. They're merely a part of the ever growing digital world. While I might not like them, I know I have to deal with them. But at least we can stand off to the side making fun of them. What communities do you just love to despise? Any interesting websites that show off the worst of the worst? Why not talk about them in the comments below? As always, thanks for reading.
  6. The Vita found itself as the subject of numerous debates over the course of the year, but complaints regarding the lack of software ruled the bulk of those discussions. Fortunately, the last few months have given Vita owners hope with even more new game announcements. D3 Publisher of America confirmed in September that Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable will be battling its way to North America shores, but they have slightly narrowed the launch window and highlighted upgraded features today through the Official Playstation Blog. Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable is currently being described as the definitive EDF experience for North America. D3 Publisher of America stated the core elements of Earth Defense Force 2017 remain intact and shall feature a few key enhancements. Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable is set to offer an online co-op mode which can support up to four players and in-game chat. Individuals can even engage in a competitive multiplayer mode, allowing players to utilize their arsenal to assert domination. Earth Defense Force 2017 Portable also brings new personnel support with Pale Wing, an unlockable flying character, who was unavailable in the original release. The new character and multiplayer additions will be the primary draw for Vita owners; however, Portable contains new enemies, weapons and missions. The game's price and release method currently remain a mystery, but the title will be available this winter. Will you be joining the Earth Defense Force on the Vita?
  7. Whether its a mistake or a glitch doesn't really matter, what does matter is the fact that the complete costume swap pack DLC is currently free on the Playstation Store for both the PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game. To find the DLC pack, go to the Street Fighter X Tekken page on the Playstation Store and then open the costume swap section. Everything will be priced normally except the bundle pack. It will have no listed price. Click it and you'll see two options, one for the normal priced pack and an identical pack labeled free. I suggest you get it right now, because this error will not last long. Tested it just now and it worked on my PS3. A thanks goes out to ffboi7 on cheapassgamer for finding this.
  8. Rainbow Moon publisher EastAsiaSoft, confirmed earlier today by IGN, is looking toward the PlayStation Vita as the next home for the quite expansive Role-Playing Games. Rainbow Moon brought so many RPG fans to their knees with value, boasting a solid build and breathtaking amount of content for a mere $15. Although the narrative may not have been as strong as many would have liked, Rainbow Moon was one of the top rated and top selling games on PlayStation Network this summer. The game's performance on the sales chart ultimately became a driving force in deciding to take the game portable, but fans did their part as well by sending in plenty of feedback and hundreds of requests. EastAsiaSoft's Nils Ngai expressed confidence in the PlayStation Vita, noting that the right games will inevitably boost the system's user base and felt Rainbow Moon will be a great fit for the successor to a system which was home to so many Japanese Role-Playing Games. Rainbow Moon will essentially be a port of the PlayStation 3 version, but will likely offer a few new features like cross-platform save files. Unfortunately, the game will not likely be available on the Vita for several more months. EastAsiaSoft stated that the lack of a pre-existing engine or framework designed to be utilized on both systems could ultimately cost the company approximately nine months just to create the port. As a result, the company is not prepared to offer both versions Rainbow Moon for the price of one. EastAsiaSoft is receptive to the idea of bundling the product for a discount for those who wish to buy both games at the same time, but the small company simply cannot afford to offer the new version without some sort of charge. Ngai also addressed the future for Side Quest Studios, the developer behind Rainbow Moon. He mentioned the studio will continue developing games for Sony consoles, but not every title in their future will be a PlayStation exclusive. Ngai also stated that fans of Rainbow Moon will also be interested in their next title, which is still in the concept phase and will probably not be seen until late 2013 or 2014. Rainbow Moon still has a long journey before being able to call the Vita home, but will you be willing to re-purchase the game nearly a year after the initial release?
  9. Persona 4 represents one of the last Role-Playing Games that many played before retiring their Playstation 2 consoles. Persona 4 was a great addition to the Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series, but elation cannot begin to describe the feeling for many RPG fans when ATLUS initially announced that Persona 4: Golden is coming to the Playstation Vita by the end of this year. ATLUS officially announced today that Persona 4: Golden will be hitting retail shelves on November 20th, just in time for the big holiday rush. Persona 4 Golden is not a simple port to the new platform, but a true enhancement which will include improved graphics, a new character, new Personas and even more fully-voiced dialogue. Persona 4: Golden will be available in both a standard retail version and Solid Gold Premium Edition. Unfortunately, gamers who are searching for the Solid Gold Premium Edition may soon be looking to third parties for fulfillment. A few companies are still taking pre-orders for the edition limited to merely 10,000 units, but websites like Amazon are already showing limited or no stock remaining for this version.
  10. The PlayStation Vita Hacking team is apparently about to claim a few more victims on the PlayStation Portable side of things if a recent blog post from the well known website wololo.net is to be believed. But seeing how everything they've posted so far has turned out to be correct, those of you who own any of the digital copies of the Monster Hunter games might want to load them up onto your systems right now. A few months ago an exploit was found in the PSP games Motorstorm: Arctic Edge and Everybody Tennis that allowed PlayStation Vita owners to emulate PSP games and run some homebrew on Sony's newest handheld. Upon announcing that these games had an exploit, Sony quickly removed them from the store and kept them off for nearly a month before a patched game was released. This removal barred people from buying the game, but also barred people who had already purchased the game from downloading it onto their systems. Today it was announced that the popular PSP game Monster Hunter Freedom Unite has this same flaw, and in fact most of the Monster Hunter series could be used to exploit the PlayStation Vita's inner workings. The blog goes on to warn potential system exploiters that Sony will more than likely be removing all of the Monster Hunter games from the PlayStation Store within the next few hours or days. And seeing how long they took with games like Motorstorm, we might not be seeing the popular series return at all this month. So I guess you should get to downloading them if you want to have access to them any time soon. You can view the original blog posting below.. Monster Hunter PS Vita Exploit
  11. What was once ten is now twenty. A few months ago it was announced that anyone who preordered Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale would receive ten exclusive alternate costumes for the following characters... Big Daddy Heihachi Fat Princess Nathan Drake Kratos Sweet Tooth Sly Cooper Colonel Radec Toro Parappa the Rapper You're still getting those costumes with your preorder, but now you get to look forward to ten more alternate costumes when your game ships this November assuming this bonus branches out to every retailer. There hasn't been any word on what these costumes will be or just what they'll look like, but I'm sure we'll all get confirmation soon enough. To find these ads, you can just look at the images included in this news post. If you would like to see them for yourself however, I've included the way to find them. When you type Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale into Google's search engine the first result will of course be the Playstation All-Stars website. Just keep refreshing until you see the description "Get $5 off and 20 exclusive costumes!" For the second advertisement, go to the Playstation All-Stars page on IMDB.com and just keep refreshing until the Playstation All-Stars preorder ad comes up promising five dollars off and the twenty extra costumes. That seems like proof enough, doesn't it?
  12. You might not know what CowBoom is or what its about, so please allow me to clue you in. CowBoom is a website owned by Best Buy that sells used and returned electronics for less than new prices. While usually these lowered prices are nothing to get excited about, CowBoom is quite well known for their daily deals. And today the daily deal just happens to be video game consoles. Sure they're used, and they might not come with everything a new system comes with, but nobody is going to be able to beat some of their prices. Nintendo 3DS (red,black,blue) $80 Playstation Vita Wifi Console $140 Playstation 3 160GB Slim $130 Xbox 360 Slim 250GB $120 Nintendo DSi-DSi XL (multiple colors) $60 Xbox 360 (Core Console & 20GB) $80 Nintendo Wii $50 Playstation Portable (1001-3001) $45 While these prices are pretty great you need to remember that what you're buying is used. It may not come in perfect condition, but it is guaranteed to work. If it doesn't work then you can get a free return and refund set up with the website's customer support, but it doesn't usually come to that. Also since these systems are all technically daily deals you usually have to wait for the console you want to appear on the front page, but thankfully there is a way around this as long as you have a little bit of patience. On the daily deal page you will see one of two different options. The first one being "Stand by! We're loading today's next deal!" if you see that, just refresh the screen until you see the "Add to cart" option. Even if you don't want the item, try to add it to your cart. If it does add to your cart just remove it and try again. After a few tries the website will say "Sorry! Looks like someone beat you to this deal. Why not choose one of these items below" It will then list four random items included in the daily deal. Just keep this up until you find the console you want and add it to your cart. It might take a few attempts, but getting a 3DS for nearly $80 off is totally worth it to me. Good luck everybody, and here's the link to the sale below. CowBoom's Daily Deals
  13. Playstation All Stars Battle Royale's release date is coming up fast. As we approach closer and closer to the release date, more details about the game's story and characters are being revealed. While I'm eagerly anticipating the game's release, I've started to wonder something- just what is this game going to be rated? We've gotten characters from games ranging from E for Everyone all the way up to M for Mature. If it was just the character's themselves then this wouldn't be a problem, but as we all know Playstation All-Stars will have a story mode to worry about. How will some of the more mature characters handle the transition to a more family friendly setting? Out of the twelve characters announced so far, four of them are from M rated games. Sweet Tooth, Kratos, the Big Daddy and Colonel Radec. I'm sure we'll see a few more M-rated characters before the game's release this October, but we'll focus on these ones for now. Colonel Radec probably won't be that big of a deal going into All-Stars seeing as he's just a war nut who will stop at nothing to win. Sweet Tooth Things get more complicated when you get to Sweet Tooth. One of the main characters in the Twisted Metal series, Sweet Tooth was an ice cream truck driver who snapped and murdered most of his family while dressed as a clown. It then became his mission to find his surviving children and kill them too. While dropping him into a T-rated game should work, they'll have to seriously nerf his story if they expect to keep their rating at a T or lower. Kratos Then we have Kratos, killer of Gods, layer of women. Each sequel he starred in was pretty much just an exercise to see how brutally he can kill someone given the newest leaps in technology available to the team that created him. As we've seen from the gameplay trailers, Kratos has been tamed down considerably. At no point will he be pulling off Nathan Drake's head. In fact his story will probably just be about him finding whoever forced him into these fights so he can rip them in half off screen. The Big Daddy Finally we have the Big Daddy. A character who's soul mission in life is to stop people from murdering the children they protect. As far as I know, they don't really do much else other than that. Will the Big Daddy be fighting off Heihachi and Parappa from trying to kill a child? Doubtful, but I'm interested to see how they'll possibly involve that in the story. There's absolutely no doubt in my mind that Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale will not get an M-rating. There's no way it could become Sony's answer to Smash Brothers if it did! But just how will these characters work in a T rated setting? And what if Superbot decides to goes for an E-rating? Only time will tell, but until then I'll be looking forward to even more character reveals. ---------------------------- How do you think Superbot will handle these rather violent characters in a game geared more towards a family friendly crowd? Do you think they'll be pulling punches when it comes to the stories of some of the more insane characters? Why not tell us what you think in the comments below? As always, thanks for reading.
  14. As we all know, the Playstation All Stars beta has begun! Unfortunately not all of us were lucky enough to have gotten our hands on a code. But it isn't all bad news, because there are still ways for you to get into the beta. It takes patience and luck, but its better than just sitting around waiting for the game to release or for a demo to pop up. I'm sure you're curious as to where you can get codes for the beta, so I'll just cut to the chase. Social media is where its at. If you happen to be following Superbot Entertainment on Twitter or Facebook then you would have seen that they've been giving codes away to their different followers for the last few days. While they aren't currently giving any codes away right now due to it being the weekend, they'll be back to it as early as Monday according to their latest posts. Of course getting a code is luck based, but with just a few thousand people following them on Twitter and Facebook (with most accounts likely not being active) your odds of getting a code are actually quite high! I've linked their pages below so you can be ready for the next code giveaway. Good luck everybody! @SuperBotEnt facebook
