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.

Love, Lost, Live, Lost (2014) - Yesterday was me and my girlfriend's 16th year anniversary together, so I decided to share this song. It deals with being in love, losing that person, moving on, and learning to love again. It's 9 minutes long, too :P

I have done my part. Thank you Niero. Question: Does blocking someone also remove their front-page articles too?

So I'm hearing the UN called Japan in to discus "Banning the sale of video games or cartoons involving sexual violence against women " Which by Anita's standards = any Violence able to be done. Japan sent a 40 page long NO back to the UN in reply.

Going to be honest; I love out-of-context anime screenshots. They're... kind of incredible.

Just got home from Deadpool and ... it's not good. I liked the jabs at Green Lantern and the previous movie Deadpool, but that was about it. The rest was just painfully forced dick jokes. Wife fell asleep.

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)

I've never done a blog before, so I may as well try one with a review of Stranger of Sword City....well, when I get entered into that contest of course

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T
