Sid isn’t allowed on the Blogcast, until he gets Dark Souls out of his system! There must be a 12 step program, somewhere… ;)

Thanks for posting this so early! I’m super excited for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner! This is the first devil summoner btw, I’ve never played it, but I loved Devil summoner 2 and still have the disc.I need to finish FFX before tuesday I guess.

Absolutely cannot wait for Batman: Arkham Knight. Especially since it’s Batman’s 75th anniversary. Any plans for Sony to do a Batman themed PS4 when it releases? It would go well for his 75th anniversary.

    That would be awesome! I haven’t heard any plans for such a thing, but worst case maybe I’ll slap a Batman sticker on my PS4 while I’m cleaning up Gotham. If anything gets announced, we’ll let ya know.

Devil Summoner! Hell yeah.

I would love to get Nocturne and Digital Devil Saga but I will happily throw down some money on Raidou just to show my support for PS2 games.

The best thing ever would be to get backwards compatibility on the PS4. If those rumors are true I know several people who would immediately be in the market to pick up PS4’s. I have so many PS2 games that I would love to play on the new hardware that I know will never get on the PS2 classics.

Great job everybody, keep up the good work.

From one of the topics last week, I was saying if you guys made a Pinterest, I think it would be the perfect place to post PlayStation recipes, haha – Isn’t that mainly what that site is for anyway? lol

Another solid PS2 classic. With FFX/X-2 recently, I’m hunger for more PS2 JRPG like Rogue Galaxy and Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria.

Who’s this guy replying to all the comments?

Nice job with the Second Son screenshots Tom. Some people who have capture cards press Options to bring up the menu and then press it again while capturing a video, there is a brief moment where the HUD isn’t displayed.

It was during a podcast when Sid and Justin mentioned having to spend a busy week working on getting some of the blog pieces together, that made me realize your just not posting PR pieces for us to read. Your writing the blog posts, and in some way, a story for the game you want us to learn about. Keep up the work, while I may not like the game or the genre that your writing about, I really enjoy the “articles” I’m reading.

    Thank you so much. :) We’re not writing most of the posts on the Blog (except the Blogcast, weekend recap, The Drop and such) — they come directly from the developers making the games!

I guess you guys are never going to get rid of PS Plus Vita games Uncharted, Wipeout, and Gravity Rush are you? I am so tired of seeing these games as free. Can’t you guys pick 3 more? Rotate them out? Something?
PLEASE GET THESE GAMES OFF PS PLUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The graffiti in inFamous SS are an homage to Banksy an artist who criticizes politics and stuff thats wrong with the world in real life its super cool stencil art kinda hipster-ish you guys should check it out maybe he had some designs put in the game himself lol they are too accurate great cast like always

I think I will send you an email too with this question, but any word on the “wave blue” and “magma red” PS4 controllers coming to North America. They look so cool, and I would like one very, very much! ;)
