PlayStation Blogcast 053: El Viaje

Subscription Links:

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

    • I don’t know who to thank for this specifically, but i won a PS All Star Battle Royale code both for the PS3 and the Vita from the Official Playstation Twitter. So, thank you, Playstation Gang!

    • Thanks for answering my question in advance. Giving a listen in now.

    • Oh and CONGRATS TO YOU SID for finally finishing Journey I assume from the blog statement

    • @Sid Marvel vs Capcom 3 still has the “I’m going to take you for a ride” song but it has been remixed :P

    • 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 won!! Thanks for the Blitz code Nick!! And wow…Sid finished Journey? Or are you yanking my chain here?

    • PSABR is absolutely fantastic! i got the platinum trophy for both vita and ps3 B)

    • El Viaje… That’s spanish for “A Whale’s Vagina”.

    • When is trophies coming to PS Mobile? And only two games? Didn’t it officially launch? That’s kind of a low output….also where are the non game apps?

    • hey SID! ? do you know what games us ps+ MEMBERS ARE GETTING NEXT WEEK?
      need to know thanks! also really love the show!

    • No far cry 3 for December 4?

      Is Far Cry 3 going to be on the playstation store anytime soon?

    • AC3 DLC and Guilty Gear..hmm sounds good

      11 and 12, the answer is in the first 10 minutes.

    • 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. =)

    • Thank you for the shout out to Montreal.. We made the blogcast!

    • Sid you actually motivated me to finish my copy of Journey..

    • @8 What the hell…? It’s Spanish for “the journey.”

    • 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.

      • I know they’re working away to make that right. I’ll let you know what I hear next, but top men are working to fix this

    • @18 Watch Anchorman. You’re missing out.

    • 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.

    • 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!!

    • So, what were the demos? any news on plus in this? sorry still cant listen to it due to the fact that the ps browser is trash

    • well…. i could not win a PSASBR on the twitter contest bc u know what? Puerto Rico its out of the contest…. AGAIN! YAY! What a great time to be a PS blog community member!!! Thanks a LOT PS blog!

    • 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… :/

    • @DarkOne_PR
      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.

    • 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!

    • So I’ve just been charged on the freebie Bioshock 2 today @ 5:05pm. I’m plus member as you can see. There shouldn’t $20 missing on my card. Who do I call/what do I do to get a refund on this?
