DCUO Receives Another Patch

Performance and stability issues being patched? Yes please. New content? That's awesome. Today we received what is most likely the final patch for the DC Universe Online beta test for PS3 (Thanks Sancho!) With only 13 days until the game launches for PC and PS3, this patch might just be our window into what the final version will look like on launch day. Hopefully this clears up the issues many have been experiencing during testing. Check out all the game-play additions, user interface changes, and stability patching down below.

Top 5 Most Anticipated Games Of 2011

As 2010 is about to close out, I'm beginning to think about what 2011 will bring. This year we saw the likes of God of War III, Final Fantasy XIII, and Grand Turismo 5. Next year is the biggest year in gaming for the Playstation 3, assuming some of the upcoming titles aren't pushed ahead to 2012. I've decided to list my personal top 5 PS3 games that I'm looking forward to most. I really don't expect this list to mirror other gaming sites, but that's what spurred me to write it in the first place.

Smallville Re-Watch / The Pilot

I've been playing so many hours of the DC Universe Online beta, I needed a different type of DC storytelling. Today, I've decided to begin my Smallville re-watch. Hopefully this will be a re-watch of the entire series. At least, as of this moment, that's the plan. I just watched the season 1 Pilot tonight to see how I felt afterwards, and it's a pretty sure bet that I'll continue watching for awhile. Besides, I need something new to write about and hopefully Smallville will keep me entertained throughout the cold winter.

DCUO Post-Patch Patch

Only a few days since the huge 3gb patch we see yet another one. This one fixing multiple issues and visual glitches according to the full patch log posted on the official beta forums for DC Universe Online. Hopefully this will fix all (or some) of the freezing and loading screen hang-ups we've been experiencing often in the PS3 beta. For the full list of beta improvements, click below to continue reading.

DCUO PS3 Beta Receives a Hefty Update

Biggest. Patch. Ever. I've been in the PS3 Beta for about a week now, loving every minute of it. There have been a lot of technical issues though, and for those people still not sure about paying the upcoming $15 monthly fee, here is one reason people do pay. Major updates to fan requested issues. Check out the full list of DC Universe Online updates below.

The update is about 3gb to download, so it may take 30 minutes to an hour to download, depending on your connection.

PSP is Still Alive and Kicking

I still have the old fat PSP1000 laying around in my room somewhere, and although I haven't played it recently, I've put a huge number of hours into a handful of games: Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, Final Fantasy: Dissidia, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night are probably my most played games for the handheld. I don't think I even purchased a PSP game this year, looks like things will change next year if Square-Enix has anything to say.

DC Universe Online PS3 Beta Impressions

In the DC Universe there's always a super-hero to save you in the nick of time.

It's a place where mischievous villains hatch diabolical schemes in a secret safe-house.

It's a place where your cape will never end up stuck over your head, causing you to crash or trip.

I've played the PS3 beta for about 3 days now and definitely know the direction that SOE are going with this fresh take on the immensely popular MMO genre.

DC Universe Online PS3 Playstation+ Beta!

How fitting is it that my 100th post on Bob's Blog is an extremely happy one! I purchased 3 months of PS+ service a few days ago as soon as I heard the news about the DCUO beta coming to the PS3. As of a few minutes ago the PS3 Store updated and voila, there sat the DCUO beta download in the PS+ section.

I'm extremely excited to experience this game, even though I realize it's currently only in beta form. It'll take a few hours to download the beta client before I can jump in, but I've heard it's totally worth the wait. Check out some wallpapers below.

Spike VGA Announcements

Tonight was Spike TV's annual video game award show. There weren't any huge reveals in my opinion, just some decent trailers, Army commercials, and some bad jokes from the various hosts. If you're interested in games like Uncharted 3, Resistance 3, Batman: Arkham City, or a new Elder Scrolls game, read on

DC Universe PS3 Beta Has Begun

I'm not in the beta, yet. I Want to get that out of the way first of all. Anyone that pre-ordered the PS3 version of the game and sent away their receipts to SOE received their invites. I am expecting my invite soon however. Just the other day SOE announced on the Playstation Blog that ALL Playstation Plus subscribers are going to be receiving DC Universe Online PS3 beta invites. Immediately I signed up for a 3-month subscription for $20.

Little Big Planet 2 Beta Levels Will Blow Your Feeble Little Mind

With about 2 months remaining until the world finally gets their hands on this highly anticipated sequel, beta testers are still pumping out extraordinarily creative levels to play. This last video really surprised me, I should of known, but I had no idea LBP2 would be able to pull something like this off, in a closed beta to boot. Check out Sackenstein 3D, as well as a few others!

Classic Games You Might Not Remember

There are too many excellent classic console games to even begin writing about, so I tried to think back to what I played the most as a kid for only the Nintendo Entertainment System. I only got a new video game once or twice a year on special occasions, so there was plenty of opportunity to completely master those few games. There are several that I spent most of my time on, most of them being on the old NES. I'll also throw in some honorable mentions after I'm done with the main list of games.

Playstation 3 Trophy Hunting

It took me awhile to get some cash together to buy some new Playstation 3 games since this new 160gb system cost me $300. I now have a few games going at once and so I should be set until at least January when Little Big Planet 2 and Mass Effect 2 release.

This article will be discussion on the games I'm playing, as well as on each games trophies and perhaps some strategies and guide links on trophy hunting. Check it out!
