Home update sounds… ok, I guess

A reader of the site who wishes to remain anonymous (out of sheer embarrassment) sent along this small list of bullets regarding some forthcoming updates to Sony’s Home project. Most everything on this list would be a welcome addition and a huge step up, because hey, they’ve got practically nowhere else to go from where [...]

PixelJunk Eden patch goes live today

(In North America, anyways – the patch already dropped in Japan and Yurop. Why do they stagger game patches like that?)
I’ve been waiting for this one myself, purposefully putting off playing Eden until this patch hits. Much like PixelJunk Monsters (and my attendant whining to the creators), I love the game, but find it a [...]

PS3 Trophy breakdown

Found this whilst lurking the fora… the breakdown for PS3 trophy values, and how they are assigned to the various “scope” of titles…
*****POINT VALUES*****
Well trophies are assigned a point value (basically the “exp” you get from that trophy).
Bronze = 1
Silver = 2
Gold = 6
Platinum = 12
*****POINT LIMITS*****
Games have a different point limit depending on the [...]

Going Home

With all the fits and starts customary to Sony, the long-awaited and -maligned and -mocked Home online social service opened it’s expensive polygon gates yesterday to the PS3-owning masses. They tend to call these things a roll-out, and roll-out it did, in exactly the manner a flaming earthbound meteor would roll-out, which is to say, [...]

Wipeout HD desktops / XMB backgrounds

I found this utterly gorgeous image over at ThreeSpeech, which I assume was of the “program guide” from the Wipeout event in San Francisco, available at huge resolution. Sadly, the proprietors of that blog felt the need to stamp their big stupid watermark right smack in the middle of the thing, so I consequently felt [...]

Savage Moon? Where do they keep all these freaky little PSN games?

I wasn’t even going to comment on the Red Baron thing. (However, if that had been an HD remake of Cinemaware’s Wings, that would be a completely different story.)
However. I’m finding it a touch strange that Sony keeps materializing these little PSN things out of nowhere, like a street busker with big sleeves.
Like Savage Moon. [...]

Everything about The Last Guy makes me feel stoned

There is a very strange aura around this game, an amazing cloud of Akihabara-hipster-retrograde that simply cannot be real. Which makes me want to run screaming from the room. I didn’t think there was a marketing firm on Earth that was savvy enough to do something like this. The Last Guy, and its developer – [...]

Bionic Commando: Rearmed Demo Impressions

Sweet but very short. Maybe the shortest demo since Heavenly Sword. You get literally half a level, 2 challenge stages (which I haven’t tried yet), and a tutorial. It’s just an appetizer, at best. Capcom could have given us a little more to fiddle with, without screwing with their sales figures, I reckon.
I guess it [...]

So I Downloaded “Qore”

So curiosity got the better of me and I download an “issue” of Qore, Sony’s new PlayStation Network “broadband magazine”. Despite the horrible sugary aftertaste a nonword like Qore leaves me. (Message to marketing: Eat Qock.) Here’s what I thought.
First off its 1.5 GB and it takes a long time to install, I didn’t time [...]
