Well everyone and their mother knows about the last new challenger for SSF4 by now, but if you don’t just watch the video and all will be explained… Actually nothing is explained really, you might leave more confused than before: never the less here’s Hakan, Street Fighter’s most slickest competitor!
People we knew it was going to happen. It began at 2009′s E3, where both Microsoft and Sony both reveled their Wii-killers software for their respective systems. Quite frankly they were as impressive as yesterday’s hardware (a goofy pointer and a web camera, really?) could be. Well a couple days ago at a Conference Sony provided not only a name their cute little copycat tool (The Playstation Move), but some details on how it works (with the Playstation 3 Camera, if you have one that is, and various internal gyroscopes into the wand itself). I got to tell you people this isn’t a wise move on Sony part at all, least Microsoft trying to be original in the motion control market. This move (pun totally intended) will not make the PS3 more available to everyone; nor will it make the PS3 a ‘next step for Wii users who are looking to move on to a high-def experience’. All this will do is two things:
1. Create a massive wave of shovel ware games that currently effect the Wii.
2. Be a generally ignored peripheral because of no support (a la Eye of Judgment)
Plus it is a text book rip-off of the Wii remote, which I think is the most annoying about the move. It’s like watching the Price is Right where one contestant puts a bid and then another contestant puts the same bid only one number higher. Sorry Sony, I’m glad you’re doing better with your games now and show more confidence in trying to take the Wii down but I’m not buying the move (both figuratively and realistically).
Anyway on a lighter note move out the way Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell the new King of Kong is a Plastic surgeon by the name of Hank Chien. He beat the old global high score by over 10,000 points. Not an easy thing I assure you, I got frustrated and/or bored after the first few stages. So if anyone sees this new-New York legend, shake his hand and thank him for keeping the old school 8-bit passions alive.
Alrightly here’s my Heavy Rain review; all ready and with no pesky reading involved (OK some). After some prodding by Backlash however, we’ve decided to upgrade the reviews a bit so we’ll be trying a few different things and see if they stick. Of course if anyone has a good idea to make a excellent thing perfect let us know. Now then to the show.
Error code 8001050F, my @$$!
OK, the plan was I was going to play then review the latest PS3 Juggernaut title, Heavy Rain. In truth I did get started yesterday; but now thanks to the PSN trophy error situation I can’t do it. To bad too, it was starting to get interesting (and it started out awesome)! Stay tuned people, as soon as the error’s fixed I’ll starting playing and post a review ASAP.
