PS3 Slim Acquired

20110823-185044.jpg

What a deal I got on this one. I paid £224.99 and got the 320GB PS3 Slim Infamous 2 bundle – as well as the PS Move Starter Pack, PS Move Heroes and Motorstorm Apocalypse. Benefits of having access to a HMV Duty Free store next to my workplace :). I’ve already set it all up ready for MK (all my saves and DLC). I didn’t realise I missed gaming in my room so much until I got Xbox Live and a working PS3 back. On days like today (for future reference the weather is shit today) there is nothing better than sitting down and playing video games.

Rest In Peace PS3

Today is not a good day for me. Not at all. Forget the PlayStation Network being hacked. Who cares. You’re identity is safe, you bank account details are safe. But my baby is sick. My PS3, original 60GB PS2 backward compatible PS3, is sick. As you can see from the video, I get that damn yellow light. She refuses to turn on. Which means no Mortal Kombat for me. I hear it’s a £140 repair :(. No good. No good at all. I might have to buy MK on 360 for now until I get it fixed. My PS3 is not just for playing MK, I watch DVDs on it every night, and even use it for television. So it’s a big stab in the back. Whereas when my 360 died, It wasn’t a total loss as I don’t play it much and don’t even have Live membership. There should be an NHS equivalent for video game consoles and computers. NO, FUCK YOU APPLE, GENIUS BAR DOESN’T COUNT. You fucking wankers. Oh, since we are on the subject of Apple, iPhone sucks. Texting and typing on iPhone is so fucking stressful nowadays. I type too fast for the device to keep up. Jailbreak or not, I need a new iPhone because Apple don’t support users over 2 months old (slight exaggeration…).

To add insult to injury, I have a trapped SEX AND THE CITY DVD stuck in my PS3. How embarrassing…

Mortal Kombat Demo

Classic battle of warriors

PlayStation Plus users are lucky enough to download the new Mortal Kombat demo today. As a big Mortal Kombat fan I am very excited for the new game.

I have very high hopes for this game and the demo did not disappoint. I made the bold statement that this was one of the best fighting games I have ever played, and this is only an unfinished demo. Very early to make statements like that but I honestly was amazed at how fresh it felt.

The demo allows you to play as four characters (Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Mileena and Johnny Cage). The game has great fan service. I noticed a few little details that gave me shivers, like Scorpions leg takedown from MKII and the music from the living forest stage also from MKII. Each character has combos just like MK3/UMK3 which are easy enough to pull off and great to mix with other special moves. X-ray moves and fatalities are also awesome and fun to pull off. I have already learnt all Scorpion’s move list and am ready for the final game. I look forward to using Reptile, Noob Saibot and Baraka.

Cannot wait for April 19th for me to whoop Kratos’ ass from realm to realm.
