    Congrats on Hard Corps Uprising Flik. That game is old school hard! I just finished the first level the other night after trying 1000 times and was mildly horrified I didn’t get a platinum trophy for it. That said I still keep coming back for more punishment so it must be a good game 😀

    Red Faction : I have mixed feelings. On one hand Red Faction Guerilla has given me some many good memories due to its amazing multiplayer. So as long as that tech gets reused somehow I will feel better. As far as the actual games. I like the first 2 for their decent sp experiences, but funnily enough I just couldn’t get into rfg’s sp as it felt blah. I really wanted to try rfa but with the omission of multi I was going to wait on a couple of price drops.

    3DS : Don’t care, but I do wonder on the pricing model because why would anyone by a DSi for 150 when you can get a 3DS for 170? Something seems odd there. At least when it comes to replacing my kids DS I’m more likely to replace it with a 3DS now than a el cheapo DS.

    Haha thanks. I had a blast finally getting through Hard Corps. I’ve noticed a few people on my PSN friend’s list have been playing it lately, coincidence? Maybe!

    As I mentioned on the cast, the price for the 3DS still hasn’t hit a sweet spot where I’d considering grabbing one yet. Also from what I’ve heard, the battery life on that thing is absolutely terrible. I think I’ll wait till Nintendo sorts that out….
