Vita Sunday Brunch

No comments

Lots of random stuff, most centered around Gamescom 2012 news and announcements, so let’s get started straight away … PSOne Compatibility in Sight Finally! The long awaited feature to play PSOne games on our Vita is almost launched. No idea what took so long, but hopefully Sony pulls this off without a hitch. Why play [...]

OK, it’s not Sony, but maybe it is. I really don’t understand why Sony continues to push the PSP. OK, I do; it’s all about money, finances, and sells opportunities. The PSP has a huge installed base, while the Vita is struggling to get out of Sony’s birth cannel. I guess what I don’t understand [...]

For RPG fans, the PSP was a godsend, with a huge variety of classics, lots of Final Fantasy (FF) options, and plenty of newer high quality RPG titles to explore. Not so much with the Vita, however at the 5+ month mark, it should be noted that the Vita is still in its early days. [...]

February 15 is tumbling towards us quickly, along with the start of soccer practice for my nine year-old son (and yours truly co-coaching), Valentine’s Day, the newest Twisted Metal, and of course the Vita. How are these all connected you may ask? Let’s take these in quick succession. Soccer practice will be Monday and Wednesday, [...]

To me it is a major bummer that the Vita, at least upon its initial release, will not support PSOne titles. Having 25+ digital PSOne classics, many of which were obtained via PS+, available gives me more options for my PSP and Vita. Sure these games are old, but some of the RPGs are pure [...]

PS3 HD Collections …

3 comments

So far I have really enjoyed The Sly Collection; currently in the swamp on Sly Cooper and the Thievius Racoonus. Getting past Muggshot to continue the game and earn the Silver “Giving The Dog A Bone” Trophy had to be one of the most frustrating gaming experience I can recall. Or maybe I am just [...]

Welcome Back Choices

No comments

Today is the last day to claim any “welcome back” games. When Sony’s package went live in early June, I picked up the free PS3 theme and LittleBigPlanet (LBP) for the PSP. I still have not made my other PSP selection; will probably settle on ModNation Racers as Pursuit Force and Killzone Liberation are not [...]

PSP Still Has Legs

No comments

Well, at least in Japan. I think it is interesting that the PSP is still managing strong sells in the face of the upcoming Vita and of course the 3DS. Of course Sony could be heavily discounting the PSP or offering pack-ins, or other incentives; or maybe all three. In fact yesterday I received some [...]

Now that Sony has unveiled the first info on the successor to the PSP, the various mega sites have beaten the NGP to death with their coverage, predictions, options, etc. To keep things short and simple, I will offer up a few comments of some items that caught my attention. The NGP will contain 3 [...]

I am not sure why I care. It’s not as if I have posted anything in the last few days, or have purchased the Angry Birds Minis. Sometimes something just catches my attention, amuses me, and for shits and giggles I have to post. Take this PC Magazine review of PlayStation Minis Angry Birds as [...]

Black Friday Gaming

No comments

I am not a huge shopper, except for the stay at home and click on Amazon kind of shopping. This year (at least so far today) I did not see a whole lot of deals that I just had to get. The tally today is FIFA 11 (DS) and Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii) for [...]

Ending Credits

No comments

Yesterday I threw up an article congratulating myself for completing Afrika, in the process achieving my first Platinum trophy. This is a great segue into a recent IGN article titled “Why Don’t We Finish More Video Games?” It is a damn good question, and the article brings out a few interesting points that I shall [...]

PSPgo – Complete Failure?

2 comments

I know that the Japanese market is not the end-all-be-all barometer when it comes to videogame sales data, however the continued abysmal numbers for the PSPgo are worth noting. The Sixth Axis just posted some data for July. Across the month the Wii beat the PS3 (89,899 vs. 77,315), the DSs beat the PSPs (202,082 [...]

PSP Update

No comments

I thought this was a great PSP article on kotaku via N4G. As documented here, my PSP ownership has been very hit or miss. My periods of PSP enjoyment are often followed by very long (as in months) dry spells where the PSP does not get any love. Over the last few weeks that has [...]

It looks like Wonder Woman is about to get a complete makeover, which I assume will make her more relevant, and of course provide more T&A appeal. Just follow the money … and you are sure to find some eye candy, even in comic book form. Over the last couple of days FoxNews has been [...]
