The weekend was filled with buying home supplies and mounts for flat panel tvs, but all of that aside I was able to get some gaming in for a bit.  I played the terrible looking Lord of the Rings Conquest on PS3 ,which is pretty much utter garbage.  I like the movies, but this game didn’t keep my interest for long.

I then played a few hours of Bioshock on PS3(already beat it on 360) and it’s still a solid game all the way around .  I’ll probably get around to beating it this week .  I followed that up with a play through of the Killzone 2 demo which is just a stellar example of how a game should look and play. It’s a definite first day purchase for me.

This week upcoming: Flower

Can’t wait!

Well,I’m no longer writing for Playstationlifestyle.net any longer and it’s unfortunate ,but understandable. Quite a few changes happening over there,so keep an eye for them. Things have been changing on the work front(yes!!) and I just purchased a house closer to the Raleigh Durham area. Also with the newborn on the way,there hasn’t been a ton of time.

But,don’t fret. I’ll still be commenting on games and playing some new stuff like Killzone 2,Flower and a few more games down the pike. I look forward to the freedom. Thanks

Buzz Quiz Tv(already got it and playing it..lots of fun!)


Dead Space(Both console versions)

It’s been a hectic week waiting on my son,so my game playing is going to be limited,but I might get to play a little bit.We’ll see as the fall bundle of games starts to hit.

Get to making your levels on LittleBigPlanet,because after Saturday they will not make it into the Retail Release.I was hoping that Sony and Media Molecule would do this and even though I only have 1 level(Kotaku Land).I might just try to get one going before then.
One thing I’ve noticed is the polish of some of the levels and the Beta has just been going for a week or two.Imagine a few months after the games release.Amazing.

Linger is a unique PSN “game”? October 10, 2008

I’ve been messing around with Linger and if you are a little confused,don’t be.I still have no idea what I’m doing.Maybe a little tutorial would have been in order.I’ve unlocked five trophys and still have no idea what I did.The music is fantastic though and the art is well unique.I will definitely give it to the PSN for continuing to bring a indie vibe to the Playstation.

LittleBigPlanet will suck your time away. October 6, 2008

OMG. I played for over 12 hours yesterday and I haven’t sat down and played a game that long in one sitting in years.The only problem is formulating a idea for the creation level I want to make.I’d suggest writing out what you want or make a plan.Just going on the flow seems to take quite a while.

Sony has got a big time hit on their hands with this game.I wanted to play some other games in the fall,but it looks like most of my time is going to be sitting in front of the TV checking out all of the LittleBigCreations people are making.

This is what your getting if you pre-ordered the Fable 2 collectors edition.

Bonus DVD with new ‘Making-of’ Feature.

Bonus in-game content (requires Xbox LIVE) including:
. The Hall of the Dead Dungeon
. The Wreckager Legendary Cutlass Weapon
. Spartan armor and energy sword

You will not be getting the Developer Diaries,Soundtrack,5 cards,Premium box and collectible figurine.This is due to supplier constraints supposedly,but it doesn’t sound like much of a collectors edition to me.Glad I just pre-ordered the regular copy.
