E3 is just around the corner and this year promises to be about innovation with things like Project Natal and PS Move coming to their final development stages and the confirmed Nintendo 3DS. This year will also be a year of sequels with games like; Crysis 2, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Gears of War 3, Halo Reach, Metal Gear Solid: Rising, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Killzone 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Gran Turismo 5, Dead Space 2, Portal 2, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2, Little Big Planet 2 and many many others! and those are just a few of lots of confirmed games! With so many games “Leaked”  before E3 we just wonder What’s next? Will there be any surprises left?…the answer is simple…We don’t know and of course there has to be surprises left! This only left us with to news a bad one and a good one! The bad news is that we all cant go to E3 :-(  The good news is that you can track most of the action online, live and Free from your PC. Here are the links:

Also Playstation Home users can watch Sony’s Conference from the event hub and catch the special edition of PULSE!

It’s been awhile since we last updated the blog but its mainly because not much has happened these last few weeks and the fact that I had been super busy. I expect to update the site a little more this week. The folks at Sony send me a voucher to test Mod Nation Racers on PSP and I really have to make a full review because it deserves it, the game is great! the creation tools are easy to use and its really fun to play. I also want to write a review on an iPhone/iTouch app called iTrophies. I tried a few apps to connect in some way to my PSN ID or PS3 in some way and honestly this app is the only one worth buying.

The rumours about LBP2 where also first leaked by Game Informer magazine. Here are some blurry screenshots of MvsC 3!!!

This is a little more than your regular updates because it actually improves something besides stability. I don’t know why or how but this update downloaded pretty fast for me. this update pres the console for the up coming 3D support. It also brings a minor tweak to the trophies view.

  • Trophy enhancements –- Now you can more easily sort trophies in the [Trophy Collection] and [Comparing Trophy] sections. Sorting can be done with [Trophy Collection] in the [Game Category] and also when comparing trophies with your friends in the [Friend Category]
    • Trophy Folder (Title List) can be sorted by game name/ by title according to the date in which you earned your last trophy (ascending/descending)
    • Add-on list (Group list) can be sorted by original/the date in which you earned your last trophy (ascending/descending)
    • Trophy list can be sorted by original/trophy name/grade/date of obtaining the trophy (ascending/descending)

That’s about it…

It’s official, Starting tomorrow GameStop will be taking pre-orders for Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds (yes that is the complete name) you can secure your copy  for 5$ so you wont be the kid crying at the counter when they tell you they are only giving the game to those who reserved. There was no word on exclusive content or special editions or other bonuses. I will post the release date tomorrow when I get to work.

who are those silhouettes from?

Also the game will be built using the MT Framework engine, which was also used for Resident Evil 5 and the upcoming Lost Planet 2. You’ll also be pleased to know that 3 on 3 tag matches has been confirmed, so it pretty much is looking like a must buy for fans of the previous two games.

ohh yeahhh

Incredible news right? Capcom Entertainment have been holding it’s annual Captivate press event over in Hawaii. Attendees got to go hands-on with near final builds of Lost Planet 2 and Dead Rising 2 and many more before their release at E3.But the one that will probably be the biggest announcement will be Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Here’s a brief summary of what to expect:

  • Confirmed characters so far are Wolverine, Spider-Man, The Hulk, Magneto, Storm and a few others will return.
  • The Marvel vs. Capcom 3 development team said they will be blowing fans out of the water with the sheer number of characters this game includes on the disc.
  • This will be another 2D fighter — gameplay-wise — but will be something of a cross between the original Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Street Fighter 4.
  • The rumoured release date is late 2010 or early 2011 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, no plans right now for other systems.
  • The game will run in 1080p resolution.
  • It will be a disc-based release.
  • Apparently the game will have unlockable characters.
  • Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will be playable at this year’s E3 which is held on June 15 – 17th.

Are you tired of lag and game drops? does playing you favorite shooter feels more like watching a PowerPoint slide show? Are whiny kids telling you its your fault because your internet sucks? Well, lag can be caused by many factors like having downloading software like bit torrent or a significant other playing a huge MMO. Sometimes the problem isn’t caused because you are using too much bandwidth or have your console too far from your router, sometimes the problem is that your ISP (internet Service Provider) is not giving you what you paid for. There are 3 important factors for online gaming and in this tutorial I’m going to show you how to:

  1. Know your download and upload speed
  2. Know your ping
  3. Understand a bit better all this jargon

First we are going to test our download speed to see how close you actually are from the advertised speed that you are paying for. You need to head to speedtest.net on your web browser.

This is Speedtest.net

All test where done with my connection so next time you lag when you play against me…its you bad not mine

Before you do anything further its highly recommended that you stop downloading anything and go offline from services like Skype Msn Messenger and log off from your game console.When you are ready to begin the test click on begin test. If you prefer you can click on any of the little pyramids to chose another server for the test but its not really necessary.

Click to start the test

Once you click to begin the test some cool meters will show you a pretty accurate representation of what’s going on in terms of speed

Racing meters!When the test is over you should get a screen like this one below. (click on the image to enlarge)

testing2

The info provided on the top-left side shows you an example of how much time common task that consume bandwidth like downloading movies of music are supposed to take based on you speed. If you want to brag about yours super fast speed you can click on the bottom to get a link for forums.  If you think that download speed is everything you need you are wrong! its a lie that your internet provider tells to sell you the more expensive plan. Now we are going to test the actual stability of you connection. To test this we are heading to pingtest.net by clicking on the square to the right of your test results.

This takes you to pingtest.netLike the button says “BANDWIDTH ONLY TELLS PART OF THE STORY” you can have a super fast download speed or be below 1MB of speed and it wont matter if your ping number is high.The higher the number the worst it gets. As before you can chose  a server or click to begin the test.

After the test When you finish the test you will see 3 important numbers to the right. They are “Packet Loss”, “Ping” and “Jitter” . If you get anything other than 0% on Packet Loss it means that the data you send or receive is getting lost on its way, if you number is above 2% you should contact you ISP so they can address the issue. Next is the ping number, the lower this number is the better you connection is for things that require streaming like voice, movie streaming and gaming. If you are playing a shooter and you see your shot came 5 seconds after you pulled the trigger you have a really high number here. Last but not least is the Jitter. Your ping number is not always the same the more it changes the more Jitter it has, again this number is better when low. A high jitter number means your line is not very stable. When you finish the test you should see a grade telling you how your connection should perform. I recommend clicking on the “learn more about grades” it will take you to some great short info on everything you need to know about this.

Here’s the new Metroid: Other M gameplay trailer looks awesome hope it launches soon. gametrailers.com has a launch date of  June 27 of this year but I guess that is pretty doubtful.
