Brandish: The Dark Revenant is out now across Europe, XSEED Games announced today.
It's been more than half a decade since the classic role-playing game was originally remade on PlayStation Portable, but as I said in my revie...
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 history. It's a connection, however tenuous, to where we came from, a place to which we've never visited or cannot return.
Brandish: The Dark Revenant is an antique, something of a refurbished one. Falcom's classic role-playing game began its life as a PC release in 1991. It would later come to SNES, and was then remade in 2009 for PlayStation Portable, albeit only for Japan. Now, more than a half-decade later, a localization has finally arrived on western shores. Better late than never.
[Sup Holmes is a weekly talk show for people that make great videogames. It airs live every Sunday at 4pm EST on Youtube, and can be found in Podcast form on Libsyn and iTunes.]
With the year winding down, videogame news has dribbled to a crawl. I've you've never listened to the show before, then it may be the perfect time to take the Sup Holmes plunge.
We've got a rerun here with Mike Mika, creator of #IDARB (I Drew a Red Box) that's pretty amazing. Mike's worked on over 100 games over the years,causing him to cross paths with Jimmy Fallon, Adam Sandler (almost) John Lithgow, and a host of other unexpected celebrities. Having worked on everything from Street Fighter to Alice In Wonderland, Mike has insider experience on what it's like to collaborate with Nintendo, Disney, Capcom, and many other huge names in the industry.
Surprisingly enough, it was the creation of a Donkey Kong hack for his daughter that put him in the mainstream spotlight. That experience inspired him to create #IDARB, which led to partnering with Microsoft to create the first home console game with built in Twitter and Twitch integration. What people say on Twitter or Twitch can actually affect your game. It's pretty bonkers.

PlayStation TV launches today in PAL territories.
Something of a Swiss Army Knife, the microconsole allows users to play most Vita games, PSP titles, and PS One Classics. It also supports the PlayStation Now streaming servic...
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 Vita's answers to a lack of the market-leading Monster Hunter franchise, which jumped platforms with the advent of the Nintendo 3DS.
As a hunting game, Freedom Wars certainly stays true to the heart of the genre, but differentiates itself enough to claim its own spot among the giants.
Vita game Tales of Hearts R works with PS TV, says Bandai Namco. This means you can enjoy the portable title on your larger TV screen.

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).

PlayStation TV launches across North America starting October 14, Sony announced today.
The new set-top box plays a selection of Vita games, PSP titles, PS One Classics, PS3 games via PlayStation Now, and can stream PS4 content via Remote Play.
PS TV will be available standalone for $100 or as part of a $140 bundle, including an 8GB memory card, The LEGO Movie Videogame and a DualShock 3 controller. It comes with 1GB of built-in storage out of the box, meaning that while a pricey memory card isn't necessarily required, folks won't be able to get too far without one.
The device will launch in Europe one month later, crossing the pond on November 14. There, the device will retail for £85/€100 and include a voucher for three digital Vita games: Worms Revolution Extreme, Velocity Ultra and OlliOlli.
While the PS TV will support nearly 700 titles available at launch, it doesn't play everything. You can check out the full list of compatible Vita games right here.
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...
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.
