And Finally, expect more of this a little later today.



  1. I played the Jak games for the first time when the HD trilogy came out on the PS3 and I was surprised how much I didn’t like them. I know they hold a special place in many people’s hearts but I wouldn’t be too upset if we never saw Jak 4. I’d rather ND keep doing what they’re doing with games like Uncharted/The Last of Us.

  2. Still no love for J-Rock on either Rock Band 4 or even Guitar Hero Live.

    • I’m sure that there’s a good reason for that… & from what I have just heard from examples of ‘popular’ bands of that scene, I think I know why.

      It’s bloody awful! ;)

    • Yes, J-Rock had no place in popular entertainment….
