Fez

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)

Anyone remember the cartoon "Freakazoid"? I'm doing artwork for a box for work to hold my supplies, but I cant remember some of the better characters. Freakazoid, Steph, Cosgrove, Candlejack, the Lobe, Caveguy... but who else?

Sorting out a bunch of university stuff and going through a bit of writers block. I'm also holding some of my best stuff back for freelancing purposes (uni ain't cheap!), so sorry if my blogs have been a bit lackluster lately. And will be for 4-ish weeks.

Been looking for a car to buy today. I swear, I am so sick of my mums voice. "It's too expensive!" "Don't you think it's a little big..." "INSURANCE!" Goddamn woman, chill your beans.

Apologies for the lack of Experience Points lately! I'm taking a short break from writing them, but don't worry. They'll be back soon enough!

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

Playing UNTIL DAWN 1st time:I'm alright with QTE,but an option to use direction as choices instead of buttons poppin' on screen would be welcome!Also:NO SHINY ITENS TO INDICATE CLUES!LET ME DISCOVER THEM!All in all,it's fun enough...

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?
