When Vikings Attack! Info

Thursday October 18, 2012

In the "release date to be announced" category we have When Vikings Attack!, developed by Clever Beans for publication by Sony itself. And boy does it ever sound like fun.

One of the reasons this game has me so excited is probably that it looks a lot likeZombie Tycoon, which I absolutely loved.

Warrior's Lair PS Vita Game Info

Thursday October 18, 2012

Warrior's Lair PS Vita ScreenshotIt originally had the working title of Ruin, but now this action-RPG that Sony's working on is called Warrior's Lair. I rather liked Ruin as a title, but Warrior's Lair is actually more suitable--or so it seems from what information I was able to gather--since players will have their own lairs, which may be more than just in-game places to keep loot (at least I really hope they will be).

I have some early screenshots, too (you'll find them titled Ruin, from the old title). While some of them are pretty standard-looking medieval RPG fare, there are indications that there could be some very cool, innovative aspects to this game. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out, anyway.

Persona 4: Golden Info

Thursday October 18, 2012

Persona 4: Golden was orignally supposed to come out in North America in August, but it's since been pushed back to the end of October. For a release that's due out so soon, and one that's been out in Japan for some time, the information available is awfully sparse. Especially considering it's a remake of a PS2 game.

I've pulled together what information I could find, and hopefully more will come out as we get close to the game's actual release (which will, one hopes, not be pushed back again).

Touch My Katamari Info

Monday October 15, 2012

Touch My Katamari PS Vita Game BoxshotTouch My Katamari hasn't had spectacular reviews, even though it's pretty much the same as previous Katamari titles, but with a few tweaks to make it more fun on the PS Vita. But maybe it's the sameness that's the problem. Are people tired of Katamari?

It still looks like a lot of fun to me, but then I only played the very first title, Katamari Damacy, on PS2 so I'm not Katamaried out.

New PSP and PS Vita Releases This Week (October 14-20, 2012)

Sunday October 14, 2012

While this week isn't a huge release week, October is going to be a huge release month over all. And heck, compared to the trickle of releases we got over the summer, two games isn't bad. It is too bad that there's nothing for PSP gamers.

PS Vita games scheduled to be released in North America this week

  • October 16: Jet Set Radio (Sega)
  • October 18: Ragnarok Odyssey (XSeed) - compare prices

Ben 10 Galactic Racing Info

Friday October 12, 2012

Ben 10 Galactic Racing PS Vita Game BoxshotThe Ben 10 franchise has had a long run on both television (as an animated series) and video games (as action-adventure titles aimed at younger players). The first Ben 10 for the PS Vita (and, I think the first game not released on PSP) breaks out of the action-aventure mold and goes for kart racing instead.

Though I did play one of the PSP games, and enjoyed it, I never really got into the franchise, possibly because it's more for young boys (neither of which describes me). Still this one looks like a lot of fun.

Madden NFL 13 PS Vita Game Info

Tuesday October 9, 2012

Madden NFL 13 PS Vita Game BoxshotAlthough I'm really not a fan of sports games, I'm always impressed by the continuing efforts of developers to make the most realistic sports sims possible within the confines of the technology. They're so real now that actual television broadcasts have been borrowing from the look of the games and the techniques and styles of their in-game virtual counterparts.

Can you imagine if, say, an RPG or action game franchise was updated in the same yearly incremental way that sports games are?Somehow I doubt they would maintain their popularity the way games like Madden NFL do. But then, I guess sports fans are a lot more obsessive than your average gamer.

New PSP and PS Vita Releases This Week (October 07-13, 2012)

Sunday October 7, 2012

This looks like a pretty decent release week, though keep in mind Spy Hunter was on there last week, too. I adore Doctor Who, so I'm going to check out Eternity Clock (fingers crossed that it's not too bad). As for the rest, I'm not sure yet. I'll probably play them all eventually, but maybe not on day one.
