Journal: E3 is Nigh

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Sadly, I haven’t played many games this week.  I’m still working my way through Assassin’s Creed 2, and I still feel the same way I felt last week about it.  The free-running mechanic is pretty fun, but ultimately still a little broken.  My most frustrating moments come with the assassin’s tombs.  Though gorgeous and well-crafted, the camera angles kept the free-running from being enjoyable.  Also, because the mechanic isn’t perfect, rushing me to complete them only made the issues stand out that much more for me.  I only have one more of them to finish though before I hit the rest of the end game.

Resistance 2 To Recieve Patch Monday, says Insomniac Games

resistance-2-patched

This week, I’ve started to feel bad for the PS3 because I feel like I haven’t covered any news on it.  Though I’m working on getting as much news as possible, there isn’t much that has been worth writing.  Luckily, some news was dropped today that I can write about.

Insomniac will be releasing a patch for Resistance 2 on Monday, January 26th.  It will fix peoples’ levels being reset to one, and will restore the XP, stats, and attributes of those people to thier rightful conditions.  It will also correct trophy issues the same way (aka retroactive trophy support for trophies the game didn’t give you when you should have earned them).  For a full list of the patch notes and more detailed info of what I displayed above, visit Bryan Intihar’s post or hit the break.

In the wake of yesterday’s achievement updates,  today was greated by new ones for Fallout 3’s ever-nearing DLC, Operation: Anchorage.  The DLC is exlcusive to the Xbox 360 and PC, so all you PS3 owners out there aren’t going to receive –what is assumed to be– a winter-wonderland expansion to the biggest RPG of 2008 (it does have “Anchorage” in the title after all).  Head past the break for the achievements and the conditions that must be met to, well, achieve them.

PS3 Receives (Nearly Nano-sized) Firmware Update

That’s right folks!  Sony has released their newest (140MB) firm-ware update for the PS3.  The update includes a photo gallery application and DivX 3.11 support.  There’s not much else to say, so if you’re a PS3 user, start up your jet engine and log in to get the fuel.  You should be clear for take off in no time.  That was a terrible analogy; run with it anyway.
