Thanks for the new episode. How come there’s no mp3 download link? There’s only iTunes or rss. I don’t use iTunes.

    SoundCloud has the option to let listeners download directly from the player, so since we switched embeds we’ve been doing it in there. Forgot to check the box at first so the download button didn’t show up, but it’s there now!

I think they should try to release ps4 psn updates in East Coast time early like Microsoft does

kimchee75 said:

How will the clarity be in party chat or in general game chat on PS4 compared to PS3?

A Sid (PS4)Is it possible to install the full game to the hard drive and just use the disc to boot up the game?

I preordered my PS4, but i’m not sure which game i want at launch: Killzone Shadow Fall looks more next gen like, but Knack seems more fun.

Another fantastic blogcast. Enjoyed the interviews, as well as Justin’s top ten. And Justin, watch American Beauty!

Just for the hell of it, here are my top ten games of this gen:

10. God of War III
9. Heavy Rain
8. Assassin’s Creed II
7. Mass Effect 2
6. Red Dead Redemption
5. Metal Gear Solid 4
4. Grand Theft Auto V
3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
2. The Last of Us
1. BioShock

If I had to include my favorite PSN games, the list will be too big. Journey, Dead Nation, Flower, and The Walking Dead are a few of my favorite.

Who’s responsible for the title? I bet it was Sid, he has a knack for cheesy puns.

I love them.

    The extra-punny ones are usually Sid or Nick (or the two of them working together on it).

I should get a cookie for suggesting Grace last week :)
Btw, maybe you guys should read on the blogcast the comments on this session as well.

With the switch to Soundcloud, it is much easier for me to hear the blogcast through our firewall! Thanks!

I preordered a PS4 and have a Vita, but never had a PS2 or PS3, so my top 10 of this generation will look different. I hope I don’t get in trouble for listing a game or two that was only available on the competition’s platform (I am really hoping the PS4 pulls off the Gaikai system well so I can try some of the PS3 exclusives like Journey, Last Of Us, Uncharted 2, and God of War)

My top 10 *(series with sequels only list the favorite game from the series)

1) Bioshock
2) Rock Band 3
3) Borderlands
4) Braid
5) Mass Effect 2
6) Dark Souls
7) Batman: Arkham City
8) Fallout 3
9) Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood
10) The Witcher 2

Dear Sony,

Your customer support on the phone a moment ago, regarding the PS+ trial with my new PS3 GTA V Bundle not working, is garbage! They could not help me with my issue… You do not care about me as customer and I hate you and your products now. You no longer have my dedication or support. I am mad and irritated, that a simple problem of my code not working due to the fact that I’m already a Plus member, could not be fixed once they logged into my account and have seen the thousands of purchases I’ve made. I get it, apparently it’s a trial, but no where on the description does it state that it is solely for new customers. Part of the allure of the purchase was that I’d be getting an extra month of Plus.

Again, any manager at any store would have taken care of this issue in 5 seconds… It’s called customer service!

-Unhappy Customer

I think an upcoming games section on the Vita store would be cool :)

Hey guys, really enjoyed the blogcast this week. I applaud Sid for trying to get an explanation of how the store works even though they snubbed you off an said “IT’S COMPLICATED!” I loved hearing Justin’s top 10 of this generation. Some great choices. I don’t see all the hype though about Last Of Us. I loved the game totally, but just as I was getting into it, the credits rolled. It was way too short. I played a few short playthroughs of maybe 2 hours or so and game over. Great game but way too short. It doesn’t even compare to Uncharted 2. I was disappointed at how short GTA V was also. So I agree with most of Justin’s picks because I prefer a longer more open world game. But that’s my opinion. Anyway keep up the great blogcasts.

Hey Guys,

Really liked the podcast and appreciated that you spoke to the PSN store team. Can you please ask them for two things?

1. Can the NA PSN store please start supporting peloading? You already have other PSN store regions that support this feature. I don’t know why the NA store does not support this feature.

2. I know the PSN store team is targeting a Tuesday 2pm PST publish time but can you try publishing the retail/digital games (e.g. BF4, AC4, Ghost) at 12am est on Tuesday? No one will want to wait 14 hours until 2pm pst to have the store publish to start the download.

Thanks! :)
