Hands-on: Fanboy bomb: Star Trek D-A-C is better on the PS3


3:00 PM on 08.05.2009



It can only go uphill from this, right?

Star Trek D-A-C got an upgrade to its systems for the release of the PlayStation 3 version, and we had a chance to check it out at Comic-con. I could lay some fanboy bait and boldly say that the PlayStation 3 version is better than the Xbox 360 version, but somehow I don't seen the flame catching. Instead, I'll just tell you about the changes, or better yet, let you see them for yourself in our video interview.

Among the improvements are changable difficulty levels and more setting options, but the biggest addition to Star Trek D-A-C is the PS3-exclusive fourth ship group, a support type. Unlike the fighter, bomber, and flagship, this support craft doesn't have much offensive power. Instead, think of it as a healer and a defensive assist. This addition really changes the dynamic of the game completely, promoting more cooperative play. You'll have to protect that healer to survive.

How much better is D-A-C than the Xbox 360 version? We only played it for less than half an hour. Let us give this new one a spin and we'll tell you. As for why the PS3 gets the fourth craft type and the Xbox 360 doesn't, I'll let you take that up with the devs. I'm sure they'll update the Xbox 360 version, though.

Forget zombies, bears are the best part of H1Z1

H1Z1 is a game about surviving the zombie apocalypse. It should be a game about surviving the bear apocalypse, because they are way fucking scarier than any zombie. But, maybe that hits too close to home since bears migh...more

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more
