Like a nail through my heart, Konami has closed the lid on several of its PS3 and Wii titles, including -- may God have mercy on their souls -- the PS3 incarnation of its timeless Gradius series, presumably the sixth. Also on the chopping block was Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball (PS3) and other long-awaited titles like New Action Game (PS3), New Role-Playing Game (PS3), and Role-Playing Game (Wii). Axed before they could even be named. Such is the way of things, I suppose.

One can only hope that this latest development in the ongoing saga of Developers Trying to Coax Me Into Killing Myself (available in hardback at booksellers nationwide as soon as, say, Grasshopper disbands or Beyond Good and Evil's sequel finally arrives as a DOAX-style boobs-and-beaches extravaganza) is only a sign that Gradius will be moving to another platform. 360? Wii? I don't care. Just put Treasure at the trigger and get me my friggin' Gradius

Impressions: Luftrausers makes too much sense on the Vita

Luftrausers is perfect on the Vita in the same way Vlambeer's Super Crate Box was perfect on the Vita. It's "perfect for the Vita" because it's a great game. While either title, with their minimal arcade sensibilities "make s...more
