LittleBigPlanet's Lose-Lose Premium Costume Dilemma

Submitted by Xenoveritas on Fri, 10/31/2008 - 21:47

LittleBigPlanet has announced that they're offering special "premium" costumes that you're expected to pay to download.

It's a lose-lose proposition, really, though. A big part of LittleBigPlanet is the online community. This means that there are basically two options:

  1. You download the actual costume. Anyone who has not bought the costume won't see you in it.
  2. You download the right to use the costume. The costume is then pushed to all users in a content patch, so others can see your premium virtual threads.

Testing the PS3's JavaScript Performance

According to Masaki Takase, the PS3's JavaScript performance beats that of IE7's.

Really? That sounds like something that's testable! Cue SunSpider!

Well, actually, no. Because the PS3 browser can't handle all the SunSpider tests. I had to remove three of them to get it to complete. Results in the full article.

RetroView: Devil May Cry 3 versus Devil May Cry 4

Submitted by Tim on Fri, 07/25/2008 - 04:21

We've recently been playing Devil May Cry 4, which got me back into playing Devil May Cry 3.

You see, Xeno, with his shiny black colossus that he theoretically got to play MGS4 and then promptly ignored it, can play DMC4. See, I don't have an XBOX or a PS3, and don't feel like getting the PC version (DMC is the epitome of a CONSOLE game) so I'm stuck with my older DMC3SE. You know what, though? I don't mind.

Review: Devil May Cry 4 Xenoveritas Mon, 07/07/2008 - 00:20
System: PlayStation 3
Score: 4/5 4 (Good)

Devil May Cry 4 introduces a new main character named Nero. This, of course, introduces fears of Raiden Syndrome. And Devil May Cry 4 falls prey to this: Nero isn't really an annoying character, but ultimately, he's Not Dante, and Devil May Cry 4 is not Devil May Cry 3.

On Metal Gear Solid 4...

It has to be said, plain and simple: I have far more fun playing Devil May Cry 4 than Metal Gear Solid 4.

Despite Devil May Cry 4 receiving an 84 on MetaCritic and Metal Gear Solid 4 getting a 94.

In short, while MGS4 is by no means a terrible game, it's vastly overrated. DMC4 is, simply put, more fun (to me at least) than MGS4. That's all there is to it.
