Persona 4 Arena (PS3) Quick Review

Picked up Persona 4 Arena for the PS3 a few days ago. I've spent a little time with it and it's a great game. Atlus's Persona universe coupled with Arc System Works' grasp of fighting gameplay is a great combination. I only worry that this game will fall through the cracks, with TTT2 already due in a few weeks.

Quick run through of my thoughts on it:
The actual fighting game engine seems smoother than Blazblue, and the user interface is incredibly flashy. At times I find myself just admiring how good the UI is for this game.Really simple for starters. All characters get a 'Mash weak punch' combo....basically you can just press one button, and get your character to do cool things that end with a super combo. Really nice, at least for me....I've never played the arcade version so this makes it feel worthwhile even if you just play it casually.Story mode is done in Japanese 'Visual Novel' style. Will probably turn a lot of people off; it works for the n…

Missing The Action

I remember when the Xbox 360 and the PS3 were about to be introduced, there was a lot of excitement. There was a lot more to look forward to and following the gaming news was a lot more exciting.

Fast forward to today, and there's just too much secrecy with these new systems. With the stuff that was revealed (that game from Ubisoft which was supposedly next-gen)...it's great, but not really a huge leap.

Maybe I'm just getting older, but what I've seen so far isn't that exciting. I do want it to be but it just isn't. Also, a lot of the gaming news these days doesn't really paint a great picture for game development. People getting laid off immediately after a game becomes a success; developers just ignoring their fans' feedback; game prices getting higher even if the content isn't that much better....it's not a great time for console games. It just feels unexciting. I've had more fun following the film industry than gaming lately....with the …

Possible Solution for PS3 NAT TYPE 3 on Globe Telecom PROLINK Modems!

Long time no post...been busy with work but still gaming on the side when I have the time. One thing I have been trying to fix for practically months now is getting NAT TYPE 3 on my Playstation 3 when connected wirelessly via a Linksys WRT120N Router connected to Globe Telecom's PROLINK Modem/Router.

NAT TYPE 2 is the ideal set up to find games online easily and to connect to more players.

I'll probably update this post some time later today to clarify some things...in a rush because I'm also working...

Here was my setup before:

Linksys WRT120N
- Has DHCP Server On
- Getting an IP address from the Globe modem of 192.168.254.x

Prolink Modem from Globe
- Apparently also a router of some kind
- The public/dynamic(?) IP address from Globe was in this device and not in the WRT120N device, as evidenced by an address that was not 192.168.x.x
- Username and password was in the Prolink device.

After reading a LOT of information online, including this one:
