    “The Flash has cast a cutie”

    Understatement. We need to invent a word for her, something between “yummylicious” and “goddess” that doesn’t sound like a bubble gum or adult film actress name.

    About this thing of taking your console game save with handheld and continuing it, theres a thing called remote play between PS4 and Vita where you can stream your PS4 to Vita in real time. It actually works pretty well in most games, you get framerate drops and such in some games, but in most cases its perfectly playable.

    That’s right. If Superman Vs. Batman fails, it’s the end of all super hero movies! We’ll only have Captain America: Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy, Amazing Spider-man 2, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, X-Men: Days of the Future Past, and Ant-Man to look forward to.
    THE END, I TELLS YOU!!

    Mass Effect 3 is an awesome game, don’t listen to the haters. If you load your save all of the way through, you will actually see repercussions of decisions made in Mass Effect 1 during the game. It also maintains a character driven story line, much like the second one, but just on a much larger scale.

    Depending on your choices and how you play Shepard, the original ending either infuriated you (like my best friend) or you really liked it like I did. The changes that they did make were mostly cosmetic in any case. Give it a shot!

    I think Rodrigo must have been thinking of a different game when he commented on Disney Infinity. It’s really nothing like Mario Party. My kids love it and I think it is a great game. Part adventure game, part Minecraft, all fun. Right now I’m watching my boy playing Jack Skellington as he drives a drag racer through Halloween Town.

      I believe Rodrigo was referring to the 3DS version of Disney Infinity which from browsing youtube is pretty much what he described, which is completely different than the console versions.

      As to the LEGO Marvel thing, yeah the main reason it’s so different is that they just decided to copy the 3DS version of the game to the Vita which really sucks since the Vita is completely capable of running a scaled down version of the console version (see all previous LEGO games on Vita).

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
