    Omg such Journey Boners. XD Great cast this week guys.

    • Ben Link

      Thanks buddy! Journey Boners! :)

  • Eric

    Man, I hadn’t thought about Microsoft having to go back and actually make hardware changes. People are gonna lose their minds if they don’t have enough at launch to meet pre-orders! If that happens, and Sony has good numbers in-stock, PS4 is going to “win” at launch, big time.

    • Ben Link

      So as of right now; Tyler is getting the PS4 for Killzone and I am getting the Xbox One for Dead Rising 3. If Microsoft is unable to complete my preorder I would be hard pressed to switch systems. Right now we are just speculating that they are changing plans and the preorders could be effected but Microsoft being so quiet is somewhat odd.

      • Eric

        Yeah, but you’d think they would want to get the release date out there. I can’t think of any benefits to not getting that out as early as possible now that Sony already put theirs out there. Makes it seem like they aren’t sure about something, whether it be when it will actually be ready, or their overall strategy.

        • Ben Link

          I agree it seems odd. This generation is quite different from the last gen because they are launching in the same year. Last generation the PS3 launched a year later than Xbox 360 so having a launch date set may not have been as important. Now they are tip toeing around each other and trying to win the same crowd. While doing it all at the same time. Makes for some fun debates and discussion though. :)

  • Kyle Long

    Yay fat princess!! Nothing like feeding her fat ass like 15 pieces of cake and watching the other team breaking their backs to carry her

    • Ben Link

      HAHA! If the opposite team drops your princess while stealing her and they are halfway back to their castle, will your princess walk back by herself or do you have to carry her back?

      • Kyle Long

        LOL well I guess I didn’t think of it that way, you have to carry her back… But hopefully they don’t make it as far since she is so much bigger. Tyler had a good point that a game could last quite a long time but the other extreme is if you have a great team the game could be done in a matter of a minute or two…

        • Ben Link

          That is pretty funny when you think about making your princess really fat and if she does get carried across the map by the other team you have to struggle getting her back. HAHA

  • Kyle Long

    Another fun PSN game I haven’t seen anyone mention is Mushroom Wars

    • Ben Link

      I saw this on PSN the other day and I liked the art. Is it a tower defense game?

      • Kyle Long

        It’s not really a tower defense you start with one spawn point for your army and have to capture all the points on the map… I feel like I have played something similar but can’t quite remember what

        • Ben Link

          That kind of sounds like Pikmin but maybe not because I have never play Pikmin before. Is it somewhat like StarCraft? In the campaign you spawn in one area sometimes and take over the map.

          • Kyle Long

            You are pretty close… It’s almost a cross of the two

  • Nathan Moore

    Megaman and Final Fantasy have generally unrelated stories, so you can jump into a new game without missing stuff outside of the new final fantasy. I also play the normal level first to enjoy the game, and the harder levels to get any remaining trophies. Also, it wasn’t a werewolf game, but a game of various fairy tale books that just featured the big bag wolf as the main character, and was also derived from a comic book series.

    • Ben Link

      Hey Nathan, sorry I totally missed you comment. Out of the two I think I would like to start trying Megaman. Which game in the series would you suggest to a newcomer? Wow, I totally had The Wolf Among Us pegged wrong. I read a little more about the game on Kotaku and I think that plot sounds really cool. “Forced from their homes, their titles and fortunes stripped from them, all they can do now is avoid being caught. Avoid getting sent to the ominous Farm. If you can’t manage to fit in, that’s where you go.”

      • Nathan Moore

        I would go with Megaman 2, 4, and 6. The first one is pretty tough, and 6 is much easier to beat in my opinion. The Wolf Among Us is a game I put on my list to keep an eye on.

  • Derick D-Rock Ratliff

    Not sure on the whole PSN, gaming, I know that Legend of Dragoon was originally for PS, however when it went on the PSN, I bought it instantly this was one of my favorite games as a kid, and any serious RPGer should get it and beat it, hands down best storyline, I ever played including FF7.
