Current Gaming and such

Hello there everyone - it's been a while since my last update and i am sorry for that.

Anyway i am currently playing Blur on the 360 and having a BLAST. I was a part of the beta test for this game's online play, and to be quiet honest i've actually yet to even crack open the single player game. The multiplayer is simply addictive and fun - and when you get a full lobby of 20 racers the game gets flat out INSANE.

For those unaware, Blur is at it's core a clone of Mario Kart. You're racing realistic car and collect power ups along the track. Blur has the benefit of being able to leverage XBL/PSN thus making online play with friends a snap. Blur also differs from Mario Kart in that you're allowed to hold up to 3 power ups at any given time, and may toggle between them with a press of a button.

The only thing holding Blur back from being practically flawless is the lack of split screen support over XBL/PSN (something Mario Kart Wii has and imo is an amazing feature). That said, i feel this game is a solid 8/10. If you can get a good deal on the game, don't resist!

In other news... as some of you may have assumed, i have taken the plunge and upgraded to Playstation Plus.

I then promptly cleaned the PSN out of this month's free content ;)

Until next time!
