    Getting anxious for NHL 12 to show up, I had not read many reviews on it, just seen it got good ones. Read a bit of a review last night and seen Don Clement is the announcer in it, finally they brought him back, he's great. Made me eager to play it, too bad looks like it won't show up until tomorrow.

    The wait is bothering the crap out of me, would have been $11 more in store than I got it for, but I almost think it might have been worth it, damn you internet.

    Yes I bought it yesterday, I like such kind of games, Only played first mission.Nice visuals, nice gameplay co-op up to 4players will try with friend in coming days.Looks like it got some skill tree if you play normal and hard mode(none for easy mode).In all cool game thats a worth of playing.

    Mortal Kombat is indeed awesome. And the PS3 version features Kratos, naturally I went with the PS3 version.

    Speaking of Kratos, I picked up God of War Collection Volume II today (the PSP titles rereleased for PS3), among a special Edition for the PS2. Dear god I hope the Collection plays in English. Haven't had a chance to play it yet. I mean the German dub is quite impressive, I have to admit, I've rarely seen such good work on a dub, and that includes games and movies. But in English it just kicks even more ass.
    Jaffakeik says thanks.

    You can really tell Midway still remains in Nether Realm, the xray fatalities seem to be heavily based on Blitz the League and Blitz the League 2.

    MK is still a game I need to pick up, along with NHL, and me wanting to play GT5 again, maybe it's time to dust off the PS3.

    Why Catherine not coming out until next year in UK?? :( Could it be because of licencing??
    Someone recommend me a new game to get for PS3 that isn't Fifa 12.

    Use ps3 media server with CCCP and avisynth to get perfectly accurate playback. Seeking just sucks.

    i was thinking just using it for DVD/BD/files it natively supports. i dont really watch anime on the HDTV much these days.


    if i... shit what do you even call it, jailbreak the PS3? does it open up better media playback? i really dont like streaming/live encoding

    Jailbreaking it allows you to install Showtime Media player, which supports more containers, but is actually kinda behind the stock player in terms of quality, especially on the audio side.

    anyone check out Skydrift? it seems to be flying under everyone's radar. it's kinda like Hydro Thunder, Blur, etc. reviews are good. it's $15 on PSN.

    if it natively supports MKV and H264, then thats a step up.

    So I played NHL 12 now... It is a good game, especially for new players who haven't or rarely played NHL before... But for NHL veterans etc, it was somewhat disappointing. Goalies are NERFED, team/player rating is not accurate and it is very easy to score. Worse, there are a lot of stupid things like sometimes, when there is a one-timer pass too close to the goalie, the pass will go in between the legs of the goalie (goalie was covering in between his legs, but decided to lift his legs right when the puck was coming towards him). Other thing like defensemen not intercepting passes that were going on their stick (again, lifts their stick right when the puck was gonna land on it), bad goal reviews (obvious kick in the goalie denied at first, reviewed, then allowed), slight goalie interference are never called... The AI isn't great either... The game is a tad bit too slow on the default.

    All-in-all, an average game for the veteran, but a fun game to the new...

    Ps3 natively supports H.264. It just has to be in an mp4 container. But yeah, showtime supports MKV, but the picture quality is inferior, and it doesn't support subtitles properly (if at all with most subtitle types).

    From one anime junky to another, trust me, Showtime Media Player is not up to par for us. It only works well with mkvs with SD and stereo material.

    Bought F1 2011 on Sunday and i have to say graphics are dull compared to like GT5 but hell its fun to play lol.
    Sitting from couch view playing it,trying concentrate is a lot harder than sitting in front of the screen like playing F1 2010 on PC.
    And sure it look better on PC but i just want a change and perhaps try playing racing games on console like i have been for couple years.

    connect PC to TV and use your PS3 or Xbox 360 controller on the PC? Better graphics, same gameplay. TBH I prefer F1 2010/2011 on a PC monitor when I play alone
