A new month shall soon be here and along with it comes a whole new week as well! Now, what can we buy with our hard earned money for our greatest hobby of all? Not many releases available, but there’s bound to be something for everyone in the next list. Let’s find out if you’re happy about it!
Garage developer Rubicon has praised Sony and their support on their assistance with their new title Great Little War Game for the IOS and Playstation Vita. Rubicon went on to say that the title is available on the IOS right now and is already completed for the Vita for when it goes on sale.
When asked how they received devkits so fast, Rubicon responded by saying that they showed Sony their new game, they felt it was a good match on the Vita and immediately shipped out four free devkits to Rubicon.
It is currently unknown whether this will be a packaged game or a downloadable one but it is great to see IOS/Android games so quickly made for the Vita and its even greater to see Sony supporting developers along the way. Should this relationship continue between Sony and developers, we should see PSN explode with games.

Update: Via Develop this game will be an ugraded version for the Vita
Posted by premiersoupir in Featured, Magic: The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, PS3 Reviews / Vita Reviews on July 30th, 2011
Allow me to preface this review by getting a few things out in the open: I am not, nor ever have been, a Magic: The Gathering player. I’ve only recently dabbled in the two digital flavors of the card game available on the PS3. So what you’ll find here is entirely a neophyte’s perspective, and I’ll address my review to noobs like me (as, presumably, the Magic aficionadi already know all about the game anyway). Secondly, I quite enjoy the game that I’m reviewing, but it’s difficult to recommend the game to others, especially those who are unfamiliar with the game. If you are the sort of person who likes strategic trick-based card games, like Tarot (the oldest European card game) and its successors, Whist and Bridge, then Magic may well be right up your alley. Or, in a perhaps more familiar digital gaming idiom, if you enjoy turn-based strategy games, like 3DO’s inimitable Heroes of Might and Magic series, then sign up. If none of the above conditions pertain to you, or if you are allergic to Dungeons and Dragons–style fantasy worlds, then stop reading now and pass on this title.
Sega has realized it was time to remind us about Anarchy Reigns (the new offering from Platinum Games) set to be published by the house of Sonic in early 2012 (January to be precise). It’s great to see Jack Gayman is back after his stint on “>Madworld (a Wii exclusive that sold 650,000 copies worldwide) but I do have to say it IS a bit weird to see him in full color after how used I got to play as him in black and white (with a small use of yellow as well). This is purely a cinematic trailer so here’s hoping they release one of the gameplay soon so we can start to see if the game should be in our pre-order lists or not (an artbook and soundtrack gets you mine!):
It had been quite a while since we lived to experience a very soon to be expensive, tremendously over-hyped, and overall, achievable year. We had a break down along the way, but the PlayStation wagon kept on moving forward, with what are soon to be the biggest fall releases in history. I am talking big names people. Great sequels and centuries of video games development. This is not a list of what I am personally looking forward to this fall. This is the list you will look back upon and think, yeah, I remember spending my entire paycheck in the local game store that year.
Here is the list of the most anticipated retail titles this fall, arranged by release date. Some of these might include some spoilers, so read at your own discretion! Remember to add any I missed in the comment section for future reference…
Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Aug. 23rd 2011)
The game takes place during the year 2027. You will take control of Adam Jensen, a private security officer with Sarif Industries, a leading company that specializes in human augmentations. You will witness a Vital attack on the company which will leave you badly injured and forced to undergo augmentation to survive. The events in the game will lead to the formation of UNATCO (United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition) from the original Deus Ex.
