Monday’s patch will have numerous behind the scenes fixes like stability improvements and whatnot, but the gem in this patch is a fix for the competitive and cooperative character level 1 reset bug. Not only will all your previous XP/stats/attributes come back intact, but it will also add up all the XP/stats/attributes that you may have earned since the bug ate your stuff. Awesome news.
Medal and Trophy problems are being addressed as well, like the â€œKilling Machineâ€ trophy bug. If you already met the requirement for a Trophy but you still haven’t earned it, it will pop up right after the patch works its magic. Read on for the main patch details.

Even when she was alive.

The last in our four part series (and flagrantly late – sorry about that) we take a look at the Games of 2009 from the end of the alphabet. Team Ico’s project, Uncharted 2, The Witcher – there’s some good ones in here people.
Join PS3 Attitude’s most colorful (albeit white-skinned) character as he delves into all things Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix from his twisted unique point of view. Some may argue that ‘demented’ is a more appropriate adjective than ‘colorful’ but we won’t pay attention to the voices in my head today. Part 1 is here to stay.

Retro. That is the buzzword for the era. With PS1 games on the PSN and rumours of PS2 games to follow suit, what would we like to see make the jump into the 21st Century?
