Tearaway is a must-own for the PlayStation Vita

Last week, I got to preview a bunch of current-gen games, which we can expect to see during E3, at a special pre-show event that entailed several different game companies. The Sony showcase in particular had a handful of game...

Killzone: Mercenary is the FPS the Vita has been needing

The PlayStation Vita is a great system with a slowly increasing library of great titles. The exception being in the first-person shooter genre, that is. You'd think that after one of these big game companies made a handheld w...

CounterSpy takes inspiration from classic side-scrollers

The first thing you'll notice about CounterSpy is its unique art style. Really, you can say that about a lot of the indie titles Sony has been picking up lately, but there's something extra special about this one. That probab...

Doki-Doki Universe is more than just flying around on poo

Doki-Doki Universe is a simple game to grasp but a hard one to describe at first. Basically, you play as a robot named QT377665 (or QT3 for short), who's just discovered that its entire line has become obsolete thanks to thei...

Preview: Never the same levels in Cloudberry Kingdom

The challenge in creating a platformer is figuring out what you could do differently from everyone else. While the same could be said about any genre, you have to admit that it's especially challenging for plaformers, a genre...

Muramasa for Vita is amazing, plays great

God damn this game is pretty. Vanillaware’s 2009 Wii title Muramasa: The Demon Blade inevitably pops up in just about any discussion of the best Wii games. It’s sitting on my shelf, snug in its shrink wrap, becaus...

Metroidvania-brawler Guacamelee! is guacamazing

One of my favorite parts about Mexican cuisine is its cohesiveness. It's a property found in all my favorite types of foods: Italian, Chinese, etc. You take a swath of semi-disparate elements, tie them together with a sauce, ...

KickBeat is looking like music to the ears of Vita owners

Remember music games? Yeah, those were fun. With the genre's better (or at least its mainstream) days behind, I'm always interested to see in what weird and unique ways it will pop back up. Enter KickBeat, from the house that...

Killzone: Mercernary: A real Vita FPS finally arrives

You want a first-person shooter on your Vita, right? Me too. Those dual analog sticks have been calling my name since the system's release, but we've got nothing to use them with. And no, that other game doesn't count. Killzo...

Hands-on: Ripping into Vita platformer Tearaway

Media Molecule debuted a papery present at gamescom last year with upcoming Vita game Tearaway, but they haven't said much about it since. And then, out of nowhere, we finally got our hands on a playable version at a Sony pre...

MLB 13: The Show focusing on bringing the fun

October was a hell of a month here in San Francisco. There’s nothing like sports to shore up the bonds of comradely in otherwise disparate, eclectic pockets of the world. Just look at how the Olympics create a national ...

Preview: Street Fighter X Tekken Vita brings plenty more

The PlayStation Vita's library has already seen its fair share of console ports, especially when it comes to fighting games. Mortal Kombat, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and now Street Fighter X Tekken has made the jump. Havi...

Hands-on with Call of Duty: Black Ops on the Vita

In the same way armchair economists have explained how the release of a Monster Hunter title would “save” the Vita in Japan, many have espoused the necessity of a parallel big-name release for North America. That ...

TGS: It's all about Soul (Sacrifice, that is)

[With apologies to Billy Joel] Soul Sacrifice was certainly one of the biggest games at this year's Tokyo Game Show. I had a chance to play it on the show floor and, well, I'm confused. Demos are always a little bit confusing...

TGS: Open Me, open you, open everything in the room

Augmented Reality games are a neat thing, but there aren't a lot of them which have captured my interest beyond that. But I've finally found one that I'm really into in the Sony booth at Tokyo Game Show. Open Me is a game whe...

TGS: Phantasy Star Online 2 on the Vita is a great fit

I've put somewhere around 70 hours into the PC version of Phantasy Star Online 2. Despite being free to play, it's a fun and complex multiplayer title that's been getting a steady stream of updates since release. Having playe...
