Ethan finally brings his brand of puzzle solving and platforming to the handheld format. Does it pay off?

DC Universe Online - PlayStation 3 Review

A friend of mine recently sent me a weekend invite to try Guild Wars 2 for free.  I am hoping to get a chance to do just that, but we will see if time permits.  It reminded me of this review I have been meaning to put up for at least two months now, and just had not found time to squirt it into the schedule.  I've talked about World of Warcraft at length in the past - and with good reason considering the absolutely ridiculous amount of time I sunk into it.  MMO's in general just really appeal to me (hence the reason I run one of the original ones, a MUD).

I posted several months ago about how I was going to give DC Universe Online a go since it was free to play on the Sony PlayStation Network.  I am not a huge MMO player.  I fiddled with Dark Ages of Camelot and I have played (and now own) my share of MUDs and I did log about four years on and off on World of Warcraft.  I have briefly tried a couple of the other free MMO's in the past, and they just never 'stuck' with me the way WoW did.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition - PlayStation Network Review

NBA Jam has been around forever.  I did a Retro Reflection on one of the earliest console releases, loved it in the arcade and even reviewed the more recent Wii version on this site as well.  I am a huge fan of the NBA (and the Pistons in particular).  For those unfamiliar with the series, this is two on two 'streetball' but on the shiny hardwood of NBA arenas.  You will not be playing an NBA Simulation here like the excellent NBA 2K12, but instead will be shoving, alley-ooping and catching fire in a much more arcade style game.

I had a fun video game themed weekend, did you?

Just a quick 'good morning' - and I certainly hope you all had a good weekend.  Mine was predictably hectic.  I knew it would be, but it was a lot of fun too.  I got quite a bit of gaming in - the usual suspects with Madden being the primary focus, but I poked at several other titles as well, including FPS Creator.  Fun, but there's a steep learning curve to be had there.  Still, my son and I are tackling it together so that makes it more entertaining.

Beyond that though?  I got to play some games in an old school arcade for the first time in at least a decade.
