Assassin's Creed III: Liberation Review

Wow a low score for an Assassin's Creed game from Nick, very surprising. You must of been very disappointed in this one.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 Review

Posted on 08/26/2012 at 11:46 AM | Filed Under Review

By "price drop" I got it for $29.99 at Newegg . With the advent of retail on eShop with this title I wonder how fast this will get a sale. Though with the game of the week sales and month of Mario it looks like Nintendo is warming up to sales or discounts, which is always a good thing.

MotorStorm RC Free for a Limited Time on Vita

Posted on 03/06/2012 at 06:51 AM | Filed Under News

Nick, with the North American version the PS Vita version is free but you pay for the PS3 version, so for North American owners if you get the PS Vita version, you do not automatically get access to the PS3 version.

The European version is if you buy one version you get both. This came from comments of Sony employees in the blog.

"Scion have sponsored the free download for a limited time in the US Store.

In Europe you can get both the PS3 and PSVita versions for £4.79/€5.99 as per the “pay once get both” offer."

"You’ll get the Vita version for free; The PS3 version is $9.99 ($7.49 with your Plus discount)."

So how was this supposed to sound good on paper in the first place? This game came out of nowhere to me and its staying there.

Stonekeep: Bones of the Ancestors Review

Nick, I'm not sure you're aware of this but Stonekeep is based off of a 1995 game that was released for DOS bearing the same name.

UPDATE: Vita Gets a 3G Bundle at Launch

Posted on 01/29/2012 at 12:01 AM | Filed Under News

Part of it is because the 3G versions of PS Vita all have GSM chips in them since GSM is a common globally used cellular technology. The big 2 GSM providers in the US are AT&T and T-Mobile. It probably would of been more costly for Sony to make a Verizon or Sprint compatible CDMA model only for the US market. 

Regarding the partnership, a scenario like that would only be plausible in a perfect world. In reality, the partnership is that Sony creates a model that works with AT&T's network and that's about it, if you want to use it then great.

But my big turn off from the 3G model is that the 3G connection only allows you to push updates, browse the internet, and use stuff like GPS and Twitter. According to some sources, you can't play online multiplayer over 3G and only features such as leaderboard updates are utilized. That and I don't want another monthly data bill since I get one for my cellphone and that's more than enough.

Just shows you how you get results by complaining enough.

Outside of the PSN game, I don't think much of it has to do with Sony but with  AT&T, since you would utilize AT&T's network for 3G you have to follow their terms of service.

In my opinion why would you need a GPS or 3G for your PS Vita? If you have a smartphone then you would typically have some form of 3G. If you really want portable internet access for your PS Vita, you might as well either get a tethering plan for your smart phone which would be cheaper or get a portable hotspot device which would not only work for a PS Vita but it would work with your laptop, 3DS, iPad, Android tablet, and so forth.

Nintendo Details the Nintendo Network, New Wii U Functionality

Posted on 01/28/2012 at 02:17 PM | Filed Under News

Nice to see NFC since it's going to be a tech that will get a big push. Google Wallet is a big proponent of that where you tap a phone next to a reader and it reads your credit card info for instead of swiping it. Here in NJ and NYC I saw a lot of Google Wallet enabled readers at stores and some "smart billboards" where you tap your phone and it gives you a special coupon.

With this in mind there can be some nice applications of this, like for example a preorder figurine that if you tap them near your Wii U controller you get something extra in your game, so you get a physical and digital pre-order or promo item wrapped in one package. Though with the proliferation of collector's editions publishers can pull some exclusive BS or DLC through this method (not like they do this already), or will have a field day with  games that will have "DLC figurines".
