So who’s the genius that closed the comments on the Shadow Of Mordor thread? It says comments will be closed after 30 days but it’s a new thread/topic

    Just looked into this. The comments are working, but the link on the front page was pointing to a story from last month. All fixed now!

I have NEVER played the Last of Us, so I’m looking forward to it. Also Ratchet and Clank Collection on Tuesday and Rogue Legacy. It works out great since I finish my summer class on Tuesday.

My, my, how Sony pumps all this cash into modern games. It must be so hard for them to find a few pennies for PS Classics.

That awesome game screenshot made me come here, but I still have NO ideas what game that is, nor do I feel I’m going to find out by listening in to the Podcast. Damn… =(

Congrats Ryan!!

“That lei came from the moon! (of honey)” (sorry, Destiny quotes I can’t help it)

I went to the island you are headed to for my honeymoon as well. It was fantastic. Very chill. There is a beautiful bay on the northern part of the island. WOW.

Enjoy, and if you like fish, the “ono” (wahoo) quickly became my favorite. Solid white fish, firm and flaky. Go to the Dolphin. Yum!

Instead of talking about Freedom Wars it would be better if they hurried up and finished localizing it. I’m sick and tired of the Video Game industry not releasing any blockbuster games in the Summer when I have a lot of free time. As a teacher, once the school year starts my hopes for gaming die…

+ Sonicfan11589 on July 26th, 2014 at 6:18 am said:

@9 I agree, a lot of the really good games come out in the fall when everyone else is back in school either as a student or a teacher.

If I still had a Vita, I’d get Freedom Wars. Sadly, I realized that the Vita isn’t going to go anywhere, any time soon. So I traded it into Gamestop for store credit. Honestly, I think that was the best thing to do, considering the very low amount of games that are on the handheld. Having a 3DS library of games growing and my Vita library of games in eternal stasis, I thought it was about time to put the Vita down for good. I had high hopes for the Vita doing well and getting tons of great games and AAA titles, but now? It’s honestly just a JRPG machine, which doesn’t do any justice. Maybe for the avid fan, yes, but for me and 90% of other people out there? Not at all. As all the PSP commercials say, “Step your game up”, because the Vita needs to do exactly that.

glad to know that you guys mention a vita game once in awhile. with the lack of AAA support that vita get’s from sony, it more than surprise’s me (to be honest). freedom wars is my most anticipated game of the year and I hope you guys take some time to post more info of the game, don’t let it die and be forgotten like soul sacrifice delta (which guys never even bother report anything on the game until the day before it’s release.) if possible could anyone of you ask a few question to the team like: will there ever be a patch with English dub after it’s release?, can we use voice chat within the game like borderlands 2? will there be DLC support for single and multiplayer campaign?…ect.

p.s. I hope sid, nick, or ryan take sometime of their busy schedule to read some of the post comment of people complaints regarding the vita and realized why some vita owners get frustrated.

by any chance is there going to be a demo for Freedom wars in US, is there collectors edition for Freedom wars, and when will it come out?

Wouldn’t it be amazing if the PS Blogcast could be downloaded directly from the PSN store onto my Vita? Yep, that’d be pretty cool.

@11 Are you sure the 3Ds has a library growing any faster than the Vita’s? I just recently made a spreadsheet of games I’m planning to buy for both systems and came up with more Vita games than 3DS. Check this link if you want to see what’s coming out for Vita (and I haven’t found a similar one for 3DS yet):

Personally, I’m not convinced either handheld is in such great shape and I think that’s a damn shame.

This podcast was really, very, super unique!

I enjoyed listening to this podcast on my Vita while I was playing Destiny of Spirits… Didn’t think I would be interested at all in Big Fest, but everything about it sounds intriguing! Also, Free-to-Play is ALWAYS nice!

Thanks for the podcast!

Nick, I just listened to the Blogcast and heard you drove through Nashville (615). Glad you enjoyed the concert, there’s actually some great little places here to attend and it’s not all country music. I hope you didn’t have any trouble with the interstate system. With three major interstates coming together in one city it has its issues at times. Perhaps that’s why truck divers often refer to Nashville as Crashville. Great show as always fellas!

Great interview on Diablo III – not typically interested but the interview by Ryan was fun. At some point I think they were speaking about the Angel of Death having a PR firm and that it is not an undead PR firm; it’s just a regular PR firm.
