PlayStation Blogcast 053: El Viaje

Sid Shuman's Avatar Posted by Director, SIEA Social Media

Today’s show is a fun, fluid affair — a welcome change of pace after the last few industrial-strength PlayStation Blogcast episodes. We bring in our LATAM PlayStation.Blog brother in arms Lorenzo Grajales to discuss gaming in Latin America and tips for breaking into gaming social media. Then we outline next week’s North American PlayStation Store lineup (it’s practically bursting at the seams with new games, add-ons, and demos) before deploying a literal barrage of voice mail questions, tips, and comments. It’s a fun, fun show and I give it my highest rating ever: seven thumbs up.

Oh, and I finally finished a game. Yep, that game. Now leave me alone! :P

Stuff We Talked About

  • PlayStation.Blog Latin America
  • DOOM Classic Complete
  • Guacamelee
  • PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale
  • UNCHARTED: Fight for Fortune
  • Persona 4: Golden
  • Send us questions and tips:

    I also won PSABR via @Playstation on Twitter and wanna thank you guys!

    Also, my friend had never heard of the game, but after I showed it to him and how rad it was, he ran out and bought a copy that night! We’re both taking full advantage of our Vita and PS3 copies!

    I hope you guys plan on having a Walking Dead (game) spoilercast in the next week or two. I would like to hear your thoughts on how it ended and where you think they should take it from there.

    Another solid blogcast. =)

    Any of you Sony folks have an update on a fix for people that bought the Alice: Madness Returns Bundle and didn’t get authorization to download American McGee’s Alice? In this week’s Store Update you guys said we’d be receiving vouchers for it, but haven’t heard anything since then.

    Hey Sid/Nick, I’m copying my comment from the Page Chronica post in hopes you’ll reply to it.

    I highly recommend giving an “ID card” to every game advertised on PS Blog, and putting that ID on all posts related to that game.

    This will automatically address most of the regular questions people have immediately when they see a post marketing a new PSN game, is it PS3 only? if it’s on Vita, is it a cross buy game? when will it release? etc’ etc’

    This will also clarify the purpose of the game advertised and its intended audience, and allow for easy searching of posts.


    Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale
    PS3: Yes
    PS Vita: Yes
    Cross Buy: Yes
    Cross Play: Yes
    Cross Save: Yes
    Release Date: 20.11.2012
    Genre: Platform fighter
    Price: 60$ (40$ for Vita only)

    Jeff / Nick / Justin / Grace / Morgan – MAKE THIS HAPPEN! YOU CAN DO IT!

    Is the pricing on Mass Effect 2 and 3 changing on the PSN store? Are you guys maybe going to sell the trilogy in a digital bundle? PS+ discount?

    Can someone share this PSABR code? Either post it in the PSABR forums or another forum.

    Can someone lease FIX THE PRE-ORDER DLC for PS All-Stars!! I bought the game for my PS Vita and input the preorder code and only got the PS3 costumes. I’m suppose to get both versions costumes!! This is extremely annoying and no one has answered me about this issue and no one is doing anything about it!!

    November 30th, 12:11 pm

    teflon i have the same problem! :/ I cannot download my costumes on vita… i pre ordered at gamestop have them on my ps3 but they dont appear on the vita store download manager… :/

    Teflon02 said:

    November 30th, 12:33 pm

    It’s so frustrating and annoying cause it is a simple fix but everyone just seems to ignore it. I’ve only had Pre-order bonus issues with Vita. And Sony published content which makes it worse. LBP, I didn’t get my preorder bonus cause they didn’t choose to ship it into Toronto Canada. And now this Pre-order bonus doesn’t even work Across systems and even worse. I bought the Physical Vita version only!! Which makes this even worse.
    Everyones always ignoring this isue, but just now I’m a Start spamming every Sony Article on this blog asking til I get a reasonable response cause this is annoying.

    November 30th, 12:54 pm

    Also you won’t have to be a shame anymore if you finish the Walking Dead… assuming you beat all episodes that will be a guaranteed platinum trophy!

    Can anyone send me the link to your twitter page? I am currently a follower of the “PlayStation” page, but I didn’t know if “PlayStation blog” or ” blog cast” had their own twitter page to join the conversation and win things.

    Thanks for any help!
