The PlayStation Recap — UNCHARTED 3 Edition

31 2

I’ll be keeping today’s Recap short and focused — I have to throw together a Halloween costume in time for a party tonight! This weekend, I think it’s fair to say that the imminent launch of UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception (this Tuesday!) is dominating the minds of most gamers. I know it’s dominating mine…

This weekend also marks the beginning of Halloween festivities. Are any PlayStation.Bloggers attending Halloween get togethers this weekend? Anyone brave enough to dress up as a PlayStation character? Let us know in the comments!

This week saw a new Dancer Diary for Everybody Dance, an opportunity to join one of PlayStation’s most celebrated commercials, first details on Mass Effect 3’s four-player “Galaxy at War” co-op, a first look at the Witch-king in The Lord of the Rings: War in the North, a new PSP bundle starring FIFA 12 and Cars 2: The Video Game, a look at Ezio’s guest turn in Soul Calibur V, a new PS Vita launch title from Namco Bandai Games, and launch celebrations for PixelJunk SideScroller, Zombie Apocalypse: Never Die Alone, and inviZimals: Shadow Zone.

    • I am wasting my life away in Dark Souls. No reading or watching anything.
      I apparently am addicted to getting killed over & over, which is odd since my character is already dead.

      Nonetheless, will shelve that Tuesday night when I do a stealth tackle, like Ezio, of my always late UPS dude & get my nerdgasm on with U3.

      Happy Halloween, everyone. Don’t be a cheapskate & turn your lights off. You deserve to be tricked if you do.

    • UNCHARTED 3, tomorrow night baby!!! 8)

    • @24

      I cant wait!!!!! I have it pre-ordered :D

    • LOL 22 watch out for the doorknob

    • I can hardly wait to get uncharted 3 game when tuesday as november 1st comes. I am playing uncharted 1 and 2. However, here’s a solution for preventing from freezing while playing both of those games: play few chapters or less, then quit the game completely as returning to game title and then to XMB, wait for few minutes or less, then restart the game again and then continue playing where left off, then repeat this step as much as you can until you beat the game to the end since i tried that and that did solved the problem of freezing gameplay of uncharted 1 and 2 game. Let’s just hope uncharted 3 game doesn’t freeze during gameplay just like it did on uncharted 1 & 2. Hope everybody would take my suggustion about the freezing problem for those games. Have a great day everybody and have a happy halloween when tomorrow comes.
