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.

There are Hawaiian Shirts in Sunset Overdrive!

As we recently learned, Sunset Overdrive lets players protect their genitals with the head of a green kangaroo, which is a very silly idea. But is that silly enough, in this post-Saints Row world? The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.more

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [7/26]

Let's get away for the weekend, just you and me. I know this little place on the coast. Nice restaurant, view of the water from the cliff side. We could probably sleep in the car in the parking lot and hang out on the beach a...more

Max and I thought it would be a good idea to keep everyone posted on our goings-on. This was spurned by many, many people wondering why we've been filming in Max's actual kitchen. We answer this question, and some y'all have...more
