Walk back, but not too far
Comments made last week by a page administrator on the Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Facebook went beyond confirming the game wouldn't come west. Replying to a different inquiry on the subject, a representative wrote, "Do you know m...
Fingering has never been so fun
I've been playing rhythm games since they exploded onto the scene with PaRappa the Rapper in 1997, and having nearly played at least one title of every rhythm game series released I can easily say Superbeat: Xonic is top tier.
But be forewarned, this is the Dark Souls...nay...the 127 Hours of music games, only you get to keep your arms attached.
Are you a western gamer interested in Dead or Alive Xtreme 3? Well then you best get your ass to an import website because it doesn't look like the game will be making it our way.
Even after the publisher said fan demand coul...
Vita (TV) means life
In case you haven't picked up a PlayStation Vita yet, now is a good time to (sort of) pick one up on the cheap. Best Buy is currently offering PlayStation TV, the Vita's microconsole variant, for $19.99.
Of course, that attra...

Presentation's mega-slick, too
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Tokyo, make it rain yakitori. That was my modus operandi at Bandai Namco's office. Rather than strangely assaulting passersby with a meat barrage, I limited my chicken chuckin' (cluc...
Great story, odd gameplay loop
Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Goodbye Despair have been some of my favourite Vita games in recent years. A pair of murder mystery visual novels, the games melded puzzle solving, courtroom drama, and murdered school kid...
Sony, Square, c'mon. These Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward themed consoles are a bit low effort. The white PS4 does look fine, but both are literally just white and black PS4s with Sony's weak faceplates packed in.
I like the ...
$39.99 "Vita" time?
Remember when the PlayStation TV was selling for $99.99 back around its October 2014 release date? Well now it's all the way down to $39.99 today in a seemingly random half price deal at GameStop.
PlayStation TV is $39....

What's old is new again
Antiques possess a magnetic quality, an appeal to our imaginations, a false nostalgia for a time most of us are too young to remember. There's a comforting allure to these relics. They offer a window into the past, a living h...

Hunting with a side of grappling hook
Ever since it came out in Japan earlier this year, Freedom Wars has been high on my list of anticipated releases. Being from the illustrious SCE Japan Studio, the game found success overseas as one of the ...

Could've fooled me
When PlayStation TV was first announced for Japan, I was fond of the device, at least conceptually, as someone who still doesn't own a PS Vita (sorry, Steven).
But I haven't given the microconsole much thought since then -- i...

$89.99 really is a steal
Ah, it's a beautiful, brand-new week fresh off the craziness of E3. We've had time to let all the sweet announcements settle in, one of which being that the PlayStation TV is finally making its way to the West. No, not that P...
Big ol' gallery
I went to snap images of the new PS4, PS TV, and all of the new controllers and accessories, but the floors was crowded and dark (and stinky), and the goods were behind an ultra-reflective glass case.
Frustrated, I came...
Featuring bold new flavors!
Max and I set out to review The Amazing Spider-Man 2 videogame. But, we didn't receive a review copy, forcing us to instead review a Spider-Man themed board game Max picked up at a weird Chinese shop.
Presumably PS Vita-related
The thinner, lighter PlayStation Vita Slim may finally leave Japan if an invitation for a briefing happening Thursday morning is any indication. "Following the biggest launch in PlayStation history, join us for an introductio...
I guess the Japanese haven't Kirby'd their enthusiasm
Kirby: Triple Deluxe is looking great. There is still no word on a release date outside of Japan, but in its first week of Japanese availability it has already sold 214,208 copies.
That's more four times as much as the number...
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.
PSP, Vita, and Vita TV
