PlayStation Move Thoughts

Have any of you seen PlayStation Move in action?  Last night on PlayStation Home they had some kind of event blah blah blah, anyway there was a video in the theatre from a recent showing of PlayStation Move and to be honest I was quite unimpressed.  Maybe it's because I've had a Nintendo Wii since 2006 but, everything that was shown, with the exception of SOCOM 4, appeared to be very gimmicky and an attempt to catch up to Nintendo.  Just about everything they showed felt like it was already done by Nintendo and probably done better, graphics aside of course.

I honestly can't remember any of the game titles that I saw last night.  I remember some sports games (table tennis), which by the way looked incredibly laggy, some drawing game where you had to draw really fast with the Move controller, a mini-game that the objective was to cut hair, and finally Downhill Office Chair Racing.  Yes that's exactly what it is, a downhill racing game on a friggin' chair!!!!  Give me a break!  Crap crap crap that's all I saw last night.

Granted even though I am not in awe from what I saw, I still am psyched to see and try out PlayStation Move.  What do you guys think?  Are you impressed so far?  Vote on our new poll down on the bottom.


PlayStation Move calibration fails; found a fix

I was trying to play the Sports Champions today with my PlayStation Move on PS3 today and I was having a problem with the game calibrating the PlayStation Move controller.  The part right after you start the game and it wants you to point the PlayStation Move controller at the screen and press the two buttons.  It would fail every time.  I followed the on screen instructions to try and fix it, but nothing worked.  I also tried unplugging my camera and plugging it back it.  Nothing.  I tried playing the Time Crisis demo on the demo disc, but the cursor never pointed on the screen properly.

However, I did find something that worked to fix the problem.  In the PlayStation 3 menu, you can actually recalibrate the PlayStation Move controller.  See the video below on how to recalibrate the controller if you are having this problem.

I'm not sure if this is a permantent fix for the problem, but I haven't had any problems so far after doing it.


Dear Sony, I have one wish....

....for you to get your heads out of your asses!  What the hell is wrong with you people?  I just finished watching the GamesCom presentation and talk about a let down.  First off...nice job keeping the PS3 Slim under it really that hard to prevent leaked photos of your unannounced PlayStation 3 revamp?  Then between like every retailer posting "pre-order" details for the PS3 Slim in the previous weeks...not a shocker that it was coming.


Fallout: New Vegas mini-review from a Fallout 1 & 2 fan

Back in early October of 1997 I got a call from my best friend Nick from high school and he was going on and on about this new game he just got called Fallout.  “Dude…you gotta pick this game up!’ He told me, “I can’t put it down.  My character and this guy I met, Ian, are tearing it up.”  He proceeded to tell me about the “SPECIAL” system and all the skills and traits he had picked for his character.  Me being the sucker that I am for peer pressure, I went out right after I got off the phone and picked up the game.

Fallout was easily one of the best games I had ever played.  All the ways you could customize your character, the different paths through the game and the multiple ways to complete quests just floored me.  Plus…it had Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver) voicing one of the characters in the game.  You can’t go wrong with that!  Enjoying Fallout as much as I did, it was a no brainer that I would pick up Fallout 2 when it released a year later.  The return to the wastelands of the Fallout universe with Fallout 2 was another great game in the series.
