PlayStation Day UK, Yay

Some tidbits and updates have bubbled up from the just-finished PlayStation Day event put on by SCEE, across the pond in Yurop-land. Most of these are shamelessly cribbed from the rolling Eurogamer liveblog, which is always my choice for such things because their writers are an amusing combination of bored and British.

Resistance 2 Teaser Is Up

Click here (or image above) for the full HD QuickTime teaser. It’s very short, but worth it for that one shot. (I would have embedded it here for you, but GameTrailer’s video system is acting like a petulent 4-year-old with a toothache.)
Seems like they’ve changed Hale’s voice? I’m sure they have. (For the better. Not [...]


I’d Bid On This

… but I’m already full-up on Chimeran skulls.
If you’ve got $2500 hanging around, I can hardly think of a better way to spend it. Besides hookers and blackjack, I mean. That goes without saying.

Random Updates

Be sure to complete all of your internet-related business before noon today. The next GTA IV trailer drops then and I’m sure the tubes will be mighty clogged with the fevered clickings of a thousand wannabe gangstas. Myself included. I won’t lie about it. Alt links: here and here. (I guess $50 mil gets you [...]

Church of England goes mental over Resistance map

The nice little outfit that Henry VIII created (yes, I am watching The Tudors right now… aren’t you?) has decided that the inclusion of Manchester Cathedral in the PS3 game Resistance – and particularly the firefight that occurs within – is “sick”.
I’ll let the dense illogic of that seep into your brain. Take a moment.
