TGS 09: PSN getting manga love come December

10:00 AM on 09.26.2009 // Matthew Razak

Despite having troops on the ground at TGS and the hardest working staff this side of a Chinese sweat shop, we've been scooped on some TGS news by the nefarious ne're-do-wells at Japanator. Don't think I don't know what you're doing over there, Japanator staff! Bringing us videogame news so hot it could kill. They bring news (most likely for evil reasons) of the Playstation Network's upcoming manga distribution network, which has been announced to launch in Japan this December. After all, the Wii can't have all the (insert stereotype about manga here) fun.

The network will allow PSP owners to download mangas for their reading pleasure when they've decided that it's time to stop playing since their hands are starting to cramp. And seriously, if you ever want to give up gaming forever, the amount of manga hitting this network will make sure that you're able to still use your PSP for other reasons. The service already features eleven of Japan's major manga publishers, including the Kadokawa group, Kodansha, Square Enix, and Bandai Visual. With over 100 mangas scheduled to hit on launch day there's going to be plenty of crammed-onto-a-tiny-screen reading to do. Still, less paper volumes taking up space on your bookshelf... that is if it ever makes its way to the West.

Why can't we have more Lovecraftian horror games? It's such a great setting, but nobody ever uses it.

Best purchase I've made in a long time. This little remote controlled BB-8 robot by Sphero is amazing. [IMG]http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b321/Felth/bb8%202.jpg~original[/IMG]

Philosophical question: if the only way to get Batman: Arkham Knight to run decently on my laptop is to lower all the settings and have it run windowed, am I really playing it?

I hate when a new game comes out and D-toid gets flooded with stuff about a game I don't know anything about and I'm just stuck here, sitting with myself and my freeware games...

Replaying Tales of Symphonia for the first time in years, I only just now realized how random the plot is. Our goals are decided at Lloyd's whimsy, while we get major revelations just 'whenever'. Still a good game, but I'm proud to be #TeamBatenKaitos.

Today at work, I made a reference to the DK Rap in one of my news pieces. Any day that I get to do that is a good day.

Everyone's playing MGSV...and I've just arrived in Skellige in The Witcher 3. At this rate, I'll get 'round to MGSV when the PS7 arrives.
