Fall in love with Amnesia Memories on your Vita

Ah, it’s finally here. Idea Factory Internation’s first otome game announcement. And really, Amnesia Memories is a good place to start. The dating visual novel for women originally appeared on the PSP, and was so popular that it spawned fan discs and an anime. And, come August 2015, we’ll see it on North American and more »

This week on the PlayStation Store, April 14, 2015

This week is a slow week on the PlayStation Store, but it isn’t without notable releases. Mortal Kombat X dropped, and a few interesting-looking indie titles are available too. Also, DC Universe Online has been… re-listed? Developer re-branding is serious business, apparently! PS4 Mortal Kombat X ( ) Here it is, the one like, still-relevant western fighting game.

Minecraft gets the Love and Hugs treatment this April Fool’s

Minecraft really is a terribly violent game. In it, you destroy the environment, butcher and imprison the local fauna, open portals to Hell, and squander precious natural resources on profane statues. In a world where so much as uttering the word “different,” and not immediately following it written apologies submitted in triplicate, is enough to drive more »

This week on the PlayStation Store, March 31, 2015

Much closer to on time this week, here’s your ol’ pal Lucas’ take on the week’s PlayStation Store releases! It’s amazing how much that whole “real life” thing gets in the way of videogames. Anyway, this is a slower week than last, but a few games of significance are out, as well as a few more »

Toys R Us sale ad for Easter has a buy one, get one 40% discount on games

Time to round out this week’s Easter/spring sale ad roundup. We already went over what Best Buy and Target have to offer, so it’s time to fall back and see what the Toys R Us sale looks like.

This week on the PlayStation Store, March 24, 2015

  This week’s PlayStation Store update is all about that Bloodborne. There’s also some Borderlands and a pre-order from that God of War III remaster nobody wants, but that’s beside the point. FROM Software is at it again, and everyone loves it. If you don’t care about having a disc, you’re gonna want to boot up the PlayStation more »

By the way, Vita firmware 3.50 is out today too
