Hover: Revolt Of Gamers launches Kickstarter for Jet Set spiritual sucessor

I generally don't like to hype up games that I can't play in their final form (especially Kickstarters), but every so often something catches my eye that makes me perk up a bit. Such is the Kickstarter for Hover, a game bille...

Mirror's Edge meets Jet Set Radio in Hover

The melding of those two beloved properties was enough for me to get interested in Hover: Revolt of Games, and then its developers went and cited The Fifth Element as yet another inspiration. For as much junk as there is on ...

Review: Jet Set Radio photo
Review: Jet Set Radio
by Ian Bonds

Oh, the late 90s/early 2000s. In-line skating, graffiti, techno-infused Japanese pop, and the Sega Dreamcast ruled my life, in and out of gaming. It was a better time, a simpler time. However, nostalgia can be a funny thing. What was a fond, fun memory once before may not hold up as well almost 12 years later. For example, I was never good at in-line skating, and I'm still pretty terrible at it now.

The same can be said for a lot of things. Is the new HD re-release of Jet Set Radio one of those?

E3: Jet Set Radio on Vita is Dreamcast-alicious
by Tony Ponce

I just played Jet Grind Radio for the first time last year, so the memories are still fresh. Sega had the Vita version of the Jet Set Radio remaster on hand at its booth, so I gave it a spin to see what has changed and what has stayed the same.

Straight up, this is Jet Set Radio Director's Cut, featuring all the levels and music from the various versions of the Dreamcast original. Other than that, it looks just like you remember it, only sharper and in widescreen. The Vita version will also feature touch controls in some capacity, though those haven't been implemented yet. One new addition is camera control mapped to the second stick, which ought to please some fans.

Really, though, it's the same game from before. If you loved it then, you'll love it now. For new players, skating around can be a bit stiff at first, and it's difficult to build a good head of momentum. But even if the skating and graffiti-tagging gameplay isn't your cup of java, you'll definitely fall in love with the incredible music.
