Last week, I was invited to an exclusive PS Vita Rooms Party here in the UK, and to be honest, it’s taken me all this time to digest everything to do with the event.
The PS Vita Rooms Party took place on Tuesday, 17th of January at 63 Deansgate – a highly popular stretch of road situated bang smack in the heart of Manchester, the city belonging to two of the world’s most admired football/soccer teams: Manchester City and Manchester United.
With the location guaranteeing maximum exposure for the PS Vita events in the North West of England, thousands of gamers filtered through the doors over 7 days to catch a glimpse of the console that has caused a stir over recent months.
With the event consisting of approximately 30-35 playable PS Vitas on two floors, approximately 10+ ‘launch day’ games on display, a DJ, free food & drinks, developers, and exclusive PS Vita accessories being showcased – you knew that this party was the place to be!
Has it been a week already? I guess it has. Well here we are with another podcast, featuring special guest Pedro along with a second appearance by Isli, as well as FooBear, Tosh, and I. We had a bit of technical issues throughout the session, and let me tell you when it rains it pours. Man was there some editing needed! I’ve spent more time editing this than when I used to do the censoring, I haven’t even had time to game tonight! It’s nuts, but worth it despite not a whole lot of news this week.
Don’t mind a few minutes in when suddenly my audio sounds weird, I had to change mics since mine was acting up for no reason. There are a few moments near the end with some quality issues that unfortunately I couldn’t fix, as I was on the receiving end of the transmission, but overall the international call went well! It’s our second time on the podcast going international too.
Well enough of that, how about you sit back relax and enjoy!

As is always the case, the year is off to a slow start. Not many games are being released in January (yes, Final Fantasy XIII-2 does indeed release in January, but it’s out on the 31st so it almost doesn’t count), so we have to make do with one new PSN release from Tik Games (and Published by Square Enix… hey!), and some retail to PSN digital releases of full featured games. Well, as full featured a release as you can call Duke Nukem Forever.
We’ll try to get a review copy for Scarygirl so we can let you know how the game made the jump from minis to full fledged PSN release. We already got to review Moon Diver from Square Enix a while ago, so let’s see how this one plays out. Buying anything this week?
