The PlayStation Recap: What We’re Reading

Justin Massongill's Avatar Posted by Social Media Manager, SIEA

Previously on PlayStation.Blog…

Wake-up Club made its bad habit-breaking debut on PS Vita, we took a look at cyber-action puzzler escapeVektor, PlayStation Plus members get Darksiders for free (there’s a new Platinum in my future), and we detailed MLB ’13 The Show’s Diamond Dynasty.

DmC: Devil May Cry, after a long and controversial journey, made its debut to nearly unanimous praise, and I’m inclined to agree with it. I’m about halfway through the game, and it’s been a textbook example of how to reboot a franchise. A lot of work went into making this game shine, and it shows. I still haven’t been able to drag myself away from Far Cry 3 — I’m closing in on the end of the main storyline, but there’s still lots, lots more to do after that. I’m really starting to think this game should have been on more Game of the Year lists.

What are you playing this weekend?

  • I’m playing: DmC Devil May Cry, Far Cry 3, NBA Jam On Fire Edition
  • I’m watching: The FP, Archer, Bob’s Burgers
  • I’m listening to: PlayStation Blogcast 059

    I can’t wait for this week’s Store update! I’m trying to finish everything I’m working on before then, because Ni No Kuni is going to rule my gaming life for the foreseeable future.

My Vita for some reason can’t go onto the PlayStation store. Is something wrong?

    There was some maintenance a couple days ago, but that’s all finished. You should be able to connect as long as your network is functioning properly.

    Hard to troubleshoot remotely, but this is a good place to start. If you can’t get your issue resolved, you can get in touch with the Support Team from there and they can help you out.

Sadly the second half of Far Cry 3 is nowhere near as strong as the first half… I think that’s why it didn’t get GOTY but it is still really good.

    That’s too bad… I think I’m near the end of the game (no spoilers!) and I have noticed that not as much “stuff” is going on, but I’m still having a blast liberating outposts, opening up the map and destroying things with the vast selection of weapons.

    Oh, and… dat wingsuit!

I’m sorry but Im not gonna lie I haven’t played DMC but I don’t agree that thats how a reboot should be done because DEVIL MAY CRY DID NOT NEED TO BE REBOOTED!!!!!!! It was already a great game that had an already developing story.. Who is Nero exactly?? What’s Dante gonna do next?? Idk I’m still not convinced it was even necessary to remake it.. But I was never a big fan of reboots to begin with
