First PlayStation Vita TV ad tugs at familial strings

PS Vita TV TV commercial. Hah. This ad isn't ground breaking, but it's really cute. I've always liked these sorts of technological retrospectives. Add in a cute family, swinging tunes, and a truckload of chihuahuas and I'm bound to crack a smile. Also, is that a throwback Rams jersey? Now we just need the PS Vita TV to be announced for the US. Such a neat little thing.

Shawn Allen talks Rockstar, headbutts, and Treachery photo
Shawn Allen talks Rockstar, headbutts, and Treachery
by Jonathan Holmes

A week and a half ago on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we spent an hour and a half getting to know Shawn Alexander Allen of A Nu Challenger. We covered a vast sea of topics, like growing up with a Repo Mom, his path towards working for one of the biggest developers in the world, how he created some of your favorite Rockstar Games trailers, the modded Xbox that lead to a headbutt at GameStop, the Wu Tang Clan Vs. the term "Black Nerd," the reasons for Capcom's continued fall from grace, Tropes Vs. Black Guys in Videogames, and of course, his upcoming game Treachery in Beatdown City.

For those who don't know, Treachery looks to take autobiographical content, inject it with a personal language of parody and social commentary, fuel it with classic RPG and beat-'em- up game design, and wrap it all around a love/hate relationship with New York City. If Earthbound and GTA had a baby, it wouldn't look much like either of its parents, but it might look a lot like Treachery in Beatdown City

Thanks again to Shawn for coming on the show, and be sure to tune in this Sunday at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome Holly Pickering (Traveler's Tales, White Paper Games) back to the program.

Seeing the little white Sony box that came out of nowhere last week was a top priority for us a Tokyo Game Show this week. I put the PS Vita TV through its paces today at the show, trying everything from PSP to streaming PS4 play out on it.

It does so many things, but does it do them all well?
