Short answer: not very well.
Short answer: not very well.
In a move surprising almost no one (though its suddenness caught me off guard), Sony recently unveiled the PlayStation Classic. Releasing in a little over two months, the PlayStation Classic will be the first plug-n-play console to venture beyond the fourth generation.
If the finished product lives up to this trailer, Judge Eyes could be a seriously incredible game.
Upon checking this week’s PlayStation Store update, my memory was stirred by the colorful logo of Last Fight. I had a vague recollection of a French made Power Stone clone previewed on this very site some months ago - and after a brief search, approximately fifteen seconds of video was all the convincing it took for…
Having just picked up LBX yesterday, I wanted to share some quick impressions in case anyone’s on the fence about buying it. Keep in mind, these are from roughly two hours of play.
Seeing as my roommate keeps depositing guests on the couch, the second round of Galak-Z I’d planned for the evening has been postponed. But since the game’s still fresh in my mind, here’s a list of everything it does wrong. And a few things it does right.
I dunno about you guys, but to my mind, that sure as hell makes it sound like the NX is gonna be a hybrid platform. (Longtime posters will know I’ve been expecting/hoping to see Nintendo go this route for years.)
So like many arcade fighters built on PlayStation hardware before it, this news appears to all but confirm Dissidia is coming to the PlayStation 4. (That and the presence of SCEJ president Atsushi Morita on stage during the latest reveal.) However, Square-Enix stated that Dissidia will be exclusive to arcades for at…
Conversations about games are frequently laced with so much negativity that it can be difficult to maintain perspective. Lord knows I've contributed to it. So has every major and minor media outlet, self-styled pundit, and message board superhero.
• You get a trophy for installing the game. Seriously. And it's a mandatory install, no less. Awesomely ridiculous.
Heads up folks, Strider 2 just hit the PSN. And just like the mislabeled discs of the original North American PlayStation release, disc 1 is actually Strider while disc 2 is Strider 2.
So I'm thinking that Ultra Street Fighter 4's mysterious fifth character will be none other than Lucia Morgan from Final Fight 3. I could be wrong, of course. But...I dunno...she just seems to fit so well. But perhaps that's just what Ono wants me to think...
System launches are a time when you most often hear the term "killer-app" tossed around by the media and gamers alike. Which platforms have them, which don't, and how that will influence one's intent to purchase console X or handheld Y.
So I picked up Paper Mario: Sticker Star two days ago because Best Buy had it on sale for 50% off. (I also snagged Resident Evil 6 for $19.99...ka-CHING!)
PlayStation Allstars Battle Royale update:
My very first, totally accidental Black Friday shopping experience: I pass by a GameStop on my way to the gym every morning, and happened to see that it was largely empty at 9am today. I went inside, found Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance for $19.99, bought it, and got the hell out.
PlayStation Allstars Battle Royale impressions:
I just beat Yakuza: Dead Souls last night and am now focusing on earning its platinum trophy. And I'll be going back and doing the same with Yakuza 4. And Yakuza 3...though that "Minigame Master" trophy ensures platinum status will forever elude me.
So I picked up Dead or Alive 5 after work yesterday. Having never owned an Xbox or 360, it's my first proper foray into the series since 2 Hardcore on the PlayStation 2. (Well, technically it was Dead or Alive Dimensions, but that game felt like more of a placeholder to me.)
