BBC Previews PlayTV

Source: ps3blog.net

PlayTV is basically a DVR (digital video recorder), you can record one show while watching another. Set up shows to record for you. Even watch it on the go with your PSP via remote play.

I’m very jealous that North America won’t be getting this. Any of you guys in Europe going to get this?

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed gameplay wrapped into one bundle of joy

Source: thexboxdomain.com

Inside of me the hype I feel for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is slowly reaching a boiling point which hopefully will explode this summer. After so many subpar Star Wars games could this new title be a wonderful next-gen experience wrapped in Star Wars lore?

The only thing that could possibly worry me is could levitating enemies get a bit boring once the novelty has worn off?

PixelJunk Monsters Demo

Source: ps3blog.net

pixeljunk_monsters.jpg

Last night I downloaded the PixelJunk Monster Demo from the Japanese store. It’s actually an english-language game! Supposedly it’ll be available tomorrow in the North American store as well.

The game is like the web-browser game Desktop Tower Defense, but with a few small changes.

You can’t build a tower just anywhere. You have to convert a tree into a tower. This severely limits the game in that you no longer control the path the baddies must take. But I personally didn’t really care about this restriction.

To do anything, you actually have to move your character to do it. To build a tower, you need to move your little guy over to a tree to convert it. That’s not too bad. But when your towers kill off the baddies, you have to collect the gold yourself. That’s a real pain in the butt!

One other change is that you can upgrade towers by paying for it, like the original, or you can also make your character dance in front of the tower for a bit, which comes in handy when you have no moola.

The demo gives a pretty good indication of what the game is like, giving you a tutorial level plus a full level to play around in. It does have two-player co-op, which I’ll try with a friend eventually. If that’s good, I might still end up buying it. If not, then nope.
