The last time I checked, it hasn't been updated on the US side, at least by 6 PM EST.

Fuck you. I've still got 2 weeks left, with final exams to do. And I have to go back in September.

Hell, I should be making a note card with all the info I can fit on it for my written English final tomorrow. But I'd rather find out about what's going on with the PS TRIPLE

I knew I couldn't fail any of my classes so I didn't even bother. I still did fine on them too. I'm getting old. =(

Muhahaha I left on the 22nd of May :p

I'm actually kinda enjoying going back in for the exams though, it's good to see all my friends who live in like Mulbarton in the same place :)

No exams today, might be going to see Terminator, I want to find out if it's shit or not.

English and Science tommorrow, shouldn't be too bad :p

Also, Silent Hill 5 is soooooooooooooo boring, it's not a proper SH game by far, it's just making me want to buy SH2-4...I think I will...

Anyone else really enjoy Sonys conference last night?


I love metal like crackheads love anal. and crack.

The new look to the PSN Store is minimal, but is shinier :P I didn't even think to check for E3 videos, downloading Heavy Rain video as we speak (can't ever get enough).

I like the new sound effects. Pretty cool how they touched it up without saying anything.

Mmm, it was good alright, but where as the megaton announcement? And way too much PSP and not even a mention of MGS5.

I'd do the same but my camera is shit, and you wouldn't be able to read the titles.

Yeah. The first video was really just a trial to see what the quality would be and all that. I enjoy browsing through YouTube looking at people's collections though small or large so if you can do it, I'd watch it.

Not to shit on your parade but there are millions of youtube reviewers.

Oh I'm not trying to be the next big video game reviewer on YouTube or anything I just like to do it out of fun. I probably wont show it to anyone outside of you guys anyway. I enjoy rambling on about video games and all that nerdy shit.

You know at first I thought the PSP Go was a total joke and nobody would buy it but after reading up on some of the features it has and the games coming out for it, it really isn't all that bad.

Little Big Planet, Metal Gear Solid, Jak and Daxter, Gran Turismo, etc. Buy all games directly so you can get any game on launch really without having to worry.

It is a bit ugly and they took a handful of things I like better about the PSP 3000. I have a PSP 2000 so I might just stick with that.

Will they still release the games on PSN, so I can play them on my regular PSP? I really don't want to have to buy a new PSP to enjoy all the great PSP games, as most of them aren't released were I am. I really only ever saw 15 different PSP games in stores, all together.

I would imagine so yeah. They said the PSP go will be on sale a longside the PSP 3000.

I don't think FF14 is exclusive, it might just be timed.

http://xboxevolved.e-mpire.com/article/N o_Title/5534.html

Aaron Greenberg of Microsoft says that his understanding is that it is not exclusive. And apparently (2nd link) SE said they were looking at other consoles to put the game on. I really wish companies would just say "this game will be on x console first" not announce it 6-12 months later.

So, I've finished my first play-through of Terminator: Salvation on medium. Overall, I'm glad I didn't spend $60 on it, and I'm almost regretting the $7 I spent to rent it from Blockbuster.

The graphics are terrible. The ones in the cutscenes are bearable, even good, but the entire game is one bland grey/brown rubble. I understand that it's destroyed L.A., but could you put some color into the levels with actual plants in them? As for the graphical part of the graphics, they're PS2-level graphics with touch-up paint and some shiny effects. Also, watch for John Connor's mic sometimes remain stiff and away from his mouth, and sometimes attached to, and moving with, his mouth. Nice work guys.

Controls can be hard to get used to. Aiming is as accurate pissing off the Empire State building onto a dime, and it doesn't help that most enemies constantly move. Luckily there's enough random ammo laying around to make up for that, but that's later. Movement is even slower than Dave's analysis of KZ2's walking. I feel like I'm moving a 55 year old obese woman rather than a 20-something savior-soldier.

The dialog, and overall script, is horrible. Most lines are given without any emotion, and are nothing more than "we need to get to Location X". And of course, they'll yell random things during a battle with the same amount of emotion and preparedness as the rest of the dialog (my favorite: Blair or Angie (they're practically same the person) causally says "get away from me", as if the T-600 was hitting on her in a bar). There's absolutely 0 characterization of anyone in the game, making most characters interchangeable and forgettable. The plot doesn't fare much better; John goes out to the middle of the Skynet building to rescue 3 guys. Just 3 average soldiers. No real reason, either; just to "inspire the troops". No twist, no "OMG, they're T-800s!", nothing. And he takes his sweet time getting to them, doing 165468465 side quests along the way.

The gameplay is below average. It's a Gears of War cover system without the fun. Most of the action sequences didn't feel too actiony, and there's only 5 guns, and 2 grenade types. RPG, Grenade Launcher, M-16, LMG, Shotgun, Pipe bomb, and grenade. And there's only 4 enemies; T-600s, Aerostats (small flying things), T-70s (4-legged turrets), and a T-600 with rubber skin on it. Also, you recover health only after a battle section, so if you have 10% health, you're fucked. Luckily, there's a lot of checkpoints along the way, but for a game that installs onto the harddrive, the load times are forever. The game is also the definition of linear; there is a very tight walkway you have to take (even in super slow running, it takes only a second or 2 to get to the other side), and Skynet must have severed everyone's Achilles's Tendon, because no one can jump. And this is only a short list of complaints.

Overall, it's only a rental if you really want an easy Platinum, and are willing to withstand 4-6 hours of shitty game for it. With terrible just about everything, this game is meant for the rental shelves at best.

UFC dishes out silver trophies left and right, and tons of online trophies. The online is what saves this game too.

I have 2 golds and like 11 silvers from UFC. Bionic Commando is UUUNNNNNNNGGHHHHHHHH.

Want a new inFAMOUS wallpaper. At the 3rd part of the E3 conference video, near the last 5 seconds there is a part where all 4 PS machines are glossy and near eachother, can anyone get that picture and make it a wallpaper?
