The PlayStation Recap

49 11

Ugh. I feel like crap. I’ve been locked in a grueling battle with sinusitis and I think I’m losing. On the bright side, being sick gives me a good excuse to stay out of the cold and catch up on some new PS3 releases. I’m several chapters into Bulletstorm — a rollicking good time so far — and I’m creeping ever closer to the end of Killzone 3‘s epic single-player campaign (using PlayStation Move, no less).

In other news, we’re just days from the 2011 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Jeff, Rey and I will be on-hand to report on any breaking industry news, share hands-on gameplay details, shoot videos, and generally give you an inside look at this year’s latest-and-greatest. Any special requests? Oh, and if you’re in the San Francisco area, you’re joining us for Monday’s community meetup — right?
