Evening Reading: More Fighting Games are Good

By Brian Leahy, Mar 19, 2010 5:00pm PDT If this were next Friday, you'd be listening to Weekend Confirmed, the Shack's upcoming video game podcast starring Garnett Lee, myself, and Totally Rad Show's Jeff Cannata. More details on Monday.

Today, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift was confirmed for US console release. This is great news for fighting game fans. The original BlazBlue had a good number of balance issues and some of the systems weren't great. BB:CS is re-tooled and re-balanced along with new characters.

While we only have a summer 2010 release date to go by, this should be good for when the release hype from Super Street Fighter IV dies down. Too bad BlazBlue was bumped off of the event list at EVO2K10. Oh well.

I've got a pile of games to play this weekend: Final Fantasy XIII, Heavy Rain, Metro 2033, God of War III, StarCraft II, Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising, Supreme Commander 2, and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. What are you playing?

Game of the Evening - Modifications:

Science & Industry (Half-Life): "The ability to research new weapons, equipment, and buffs was pretty ahead of its time when it first came out. It also had an ingenious take on the CTF model with you having to run over to your competitor's base, STEAL THE SCIENTISTS, and bring it back to your base. What does that mean ultimately? The more scientists = more money = faster/more research options. Hell yeah." (Telnik)

  • So I'm having some graphical issues with God of War 3 and I'm wonder if the shack can help or has an idea as to what the problem is.
    I just purchased this TV a about month ago http://tinyurl.com/ybse9pj
    When I am playing GoW3 I run into blurring problems. It's especially noticeable in Hades Palace and mostly shows on darker colors. Whenever the camera has to move all the textures tend to blur and lose all sharpness until the camera or Kratos stops moving. It's fairly annoying as creates a flickering effect that pulls my eyes away from where ever they should be focused.
    I've tried disabling Auto-Motion plus on the TV, I've tried forcing the PS3 into 1080i instead of 720p but it doesn't change anything. I've adjusted everything setting I can think of on the TV but nothing seems to help. Any ideas shack?
