Starbound, Fez, and Velocity 2X coming to Vita (Update)

12:42 PM on 08.20.2013 // Tim Sheehy

More indies to feast on!

[Update: As announced on Polytron's official site, Fez will be headed to PS3 as well. In addition, Sony's released a full list of indie titles headed for each platform in the near future. The list includes gems such as Broken Sword: The Serpent's Curse, Euphoria HDJoe Danger, and many more. You can view the full list after the jump!] 

During today's Sony conference it was announced that several new indie titles would be coming to both the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 4, including the upcoming indie action and adventure platformer Starbound, the critically-acclaimed Fez, and the sequel to FuturLab's 2012 shoot'em up Velocity 2X.

For those of you who may not be familiar with them, in Starbound, you'll find yourself exploring new planets, settling, claiming resources, or even battling its inhabitants either alone or with fellow adventurers. Velocity 2X is a top-down shooter with a puzzle-based twist. You command a warp ship capable of teleporting through objects, while trying to race through each stage while battling countless waves of alien foes.

With any luck, these titles in addition to the recent announcement of Borderlands 2, will help to bolster the handheld's sparse library, while giving potential consumers even more of a reason to pick up Sony's next-gen console.

The full list of PS Vita indie titles includes:

  • Age of Zombies (BlitWorks/Halfbrick) 
  • A-Men 2 (Bloober Team)
  • Assault Android Cactus (Witch Beam)

So Macy's parade had that performance from "The Wiz" which made me realize I'd much rather have seen "The Wizard" where everyone is dancing around wearing power gloves. Come on Nintendo, THE TIME IS NOW!

Transformers Devastation PS4 - $24. The Order 1886 $10. Digital flash sale on PSN. I think I'm going to have to bite on both these. And I hate digital if I can avoid it ...

Remember folks, don't forget to smoke cigarettes in between courses during thanksgiving to help in digestion.

Playing New Vegas again because reasons, it occurs to me that it'd be nice if Old World Blues gave me the option to move the Brotherhood of Steel to the Big MT instead of wiping them out for Mr. House.

Near heart attack as for a minute it seemed like the A button of my 3DS was busted. It's fine now though, I think we'll live.

There's now a £4/$5 Raspberry Pi. So cheap it's a cover extra on the latest Mag Pi. Based on the original chipset, it's single core but clocked at 1Ghz so it's quite a bit faster and oh so tiny. I can't wait to see what folks build with it.

After a lifetime of not spending a single cent on FTP games, I finally broke and dropped €1 in the Nintendo Badge Arcade. I just had to have all the Luigi badges asap. I feel dirty. Plus side, my 3ds will be covered in Luigi.

I tried driving as Uber last night to start supplementing my income and everyone so far has been super chill. Also, I started practicing in my sleepy small home city so the training wheels were still on. No big city bar hoppers just yet.

Just got my Gwent physical edition. I don't understand special abilities - for example, Arachas have an icon with two knights beneath the close combat icon. Avallac'h has an eye in that same spot. Help? (I'm no longer a squid btw)

I dunno if I just had a freak incident but I think Ubisoft may have just changed the Renown gain in Rainbow Six Siege to be less shit as in overnight they've patched it. If true, kinda good on them.

I've developed a new hobby to indulge in while on Skype with friends: creating stupid Sonic OCs. I have so much fun making them for some weird reason, and once I have enough of them I might as well post a c-blog of them, am I right? Look out in the future

Boy howdy, does Divinity: Original Sin take a while to get going. But, it was worth it in the end. Probably the most hardcore RPG I've played. Stellar writing, at that! Combat's pretty amazing too. [img][/img]
