Does the Vita work in The FP?


I love me some Little Big Planet

So remember how I got my 3DS for twenty-six cents? Yeah, well, that’s gone now and now I have a PS Vita. And I for that for $1.75. Like I said before, I’m a trade in maniac when I hit the right promos.

I gotta say the Vita is a much better system for me than the 3DS was. After I beat Mario and Zelda there was really nothing coming out for it that I wanted to play other than Kid Icarus, and I’m not even that thrilled by that so far. And the 3D effect, while cool at times, was more than a little gimmicky. But the Vita? Sexy as hell.

As I was discussing with my buddy Journel (PSN ID: S3 Prototype, XBGT: Server Jesus), I’m in love with the entire Uncharted franchise while he’s a HUGE Metal Gearhead. I’d be lying if I said that the main reason I bought this wasn’t for Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Oh my god that game is beautiful. Now Journel can’t get into Uncharted (even with my constant prodding) kinda like I can’t just seem to get deep into the MGS series. Too much crazy shit happening in that game.

Speaking of crazy shit in games, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare came out and I gotta say I’m impressed. I loved the original Alan Wake and the end left me wanting more. This fills the void left by the original but it isn’t a direct sequel but more of a side story, sort of. I’ll know more after I delve into it a little more. Now I tried to explain the storyline to Journel and, to summize, this was his exact response:

Yeah, that was what he said. Pretty much exactly.

Oh yeah, I bet some of you are wondering what the hell The FP is. The FP is an upcoming movie with a Batshit Crazy plot:

IN THE FUTURE (Capitalized for emphasis), the world is in ruins. Gangs roam the street and battle in a ancient art known as…

Beat Beat Revolution.

Seriously.

I guess they couldn’t get the right to Dance Dance Revolution. Can’t imagine why. That’s not the crazy part though. The crazy thing is this is actually getting awards and selections from film festivals. You may think I’m making this up but I swear to god I’m now. Don’t believe me? Here’s the trailer:

See! I told you! Freaking insanity.

Well now that I’ve properly disturbed you for the day, you may go about your business. Carry on.

I’m turning into a Rock God…

Well not yet, but I am in love with Rocksmith.

Seriously though, I knew I was going to enjoy it, Rocksmith is an amazing piece of software. It’s not even right to call it a game, it’s so much more than that. And the fact that I’m almost at the point where I can play I Can’t Get No Satisfaction almost completely just plugged into a real amp after only a week? AmaZing.

The Vita came out this week, along with Twisted Metal for the PS3, and I’m holding off on both of them for a bit. I’m still working through my backlog and I don’t want to add to the pile. At least not until SSX and Mass Effect 3 come out.

Speaking of Mass Effect 3, holy demo goodness. For Cereal, go get that shit right now. Commander Will Shepard is a galactic badass.

Well I gotta get back to work. To bad I can’t make a living with my guitar. At least not yet… >:)

Being Sick Sucks

Well looks like I got my yearly cold…

I was sick the other day, felt better yesterday, and now feel like complete shit. God I hate being sick worse than I hate Twilight. That’s a lot of hate right there.

The bright spot of my day will be later on when my Dean Vendetta XM guitar gets here. I have always wanted to learn how to play and I took some lessons a while ago but couldn’t fit it into my schedule. So how am I going to learn now? Rocksmith.

I’ve been reading A LOT of reviews on this and it’s all been positive. It’s not like pro mode on Rock Band 3, this actually teaches you how to play. I’m really excited to get started. And, apparently, Jeremy just came out to download. Now I have an end goal 🙂

Now back to being sick…

I’m Back Bitches!


Oh Hai!

Yeah it’s been a while since I posted here, had some real life stuff going on. Short version: some shit happened, fucked with my head and then I got better. The End.

So being that my last post was on the Call of Duty launch, what’s been going on? Well Star Wars: The Old Republic came out and has been totally monopolizing my gaming time for the most part. I also have a HUGE backlog of games that I’m working through that just doesn’t seem to end. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Ok, so I may have a bit of a problem...

Yeah, let’s go down the list of games that I haven’t finished yet. I beat Saints Row: The Third, but have to go through it again to get the other achievements. Rayman: Origins is beautiful and I just haven’t gotten that deep into it. I picked up Read Dead again because I never beat it and the Blockbuster in my town is going out of business. I have to beat the RAAM expansion for Gears of War 3. I was getting into Skyrim but then I took an arrow to the knee. A tragedy, I know. I have to beat both Lego Star Wars games. I just got Need for Speed: The Run and love it but just haven’t devoted a lot of time to it. I haven’t started the UFC personal trainer yet because, well, I’m a little scared of it.

Now onto PS3 land. Believe it or not, I had never played and of the Sly Cooper games until last night. They seem pretty awesome so I think that will be taking up some of my time. I have to beat both Ratchet and Clanks. Now, technically, I have beat all 3 Prince of Persia games, but not on the PS3 so I guess they count. I feel really bad that I haven’t committed enough time to Metal Gear Solid 4. Like really bad.

Oh, and that’s not counting all of the XBLA and PSN games I downloaded! And I wound up getting a 3DS after telling myself I wasn’t going to, and the fact that I got it for twenty-six cents (because I’m a trade in maniac) so add Ocarina of Time, Starfox and Pokemon Black (shut up). And then Steam had that crazy sale so I picked up Bastion and Civ V.

It just doesn’t stop. Darkness II, Syndicate, SSX (so fucking excited for this one), Street Fighter X Tekken (STARRING FAT MEGA MAN!) and so many more games. Somebody really needs to perfect cloning so I could keep up with it all.

Well that’s enough of my ranting for right now. Now I’m going to go see what Blockbuster has left.

Like I said, I have a problem…
