MotorStorm RC Announced

posted in: Game News | 0

I have yet to purchase a single MotorStorm game despite their appealing demos. I’m not sure why either. Perhaps it has something to do with price and the lack of perceived value? Who knows?

There’s a new MotorStorm game coming for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. I’m not going to kid myself and say that I’ll be picking MotorStorm RC up, but if I were to pick it up, here are two reasons why: I have a Vita and want to support great value ideas.

If I picked up the game for the PlayStation 3, I also get the PlayStation Vita version. That sounds like a great idea if both versions cost roughly the same individually.

I imagine the PlayStation 3 version will be $59.99 while the PlayStation Vita version will be $39.99 by itself. So who in their right mind wouldn’t get the $59.99 version?

First week of October is here so let’s take a look at this month’s noteworthy gaming line-up.

Week of Oct. 6

  • Demon’s Souls (PS3)
    • A seemingly tough JRPG with a western aesthetic. I’m intrigued by it and would love to play it, but it’s an incredibly crowded month.
  • NBA Live 10 (360, PS3, PSP)
    • Surprisingly, my brother isn’t picking up an NBA game this season.
  • Wii Fit Plus
    • It’s a nice replacement for new comers, but is it worth picking up for current owners? My mom says no.
  • Afrika (PS3)
    • An African safari simulator. I’d love to try this out.
  • MotorStorm: Arctic Edge (PSP, PS2)
    • It’s MotorStorm for the PSP and PS2. Intrigued, but that’s about it.
  • Critter Crunch (PSN)
    • It came out on iPhone already and if it wasn’t for the attractive price tag of $6.99, I wouldn’t have given this a second look. But here we are.
