You may have missed it but Sony’s conference at E3 included the PS Vita. Among the games showcased was the delightful Tearaway which we haven’t seen since it was announced at Gamescom last year. Media Molecule folded and glued together a new trailer for E3 where you can see the gorgeous paper craft style and excellent use of the rear touch pad in action. Check it out!
I’m off to make a paper elk.
Soul Sacrifice is arguably the best game I have ever played for the PlayStation Vita. This is Sony Computer Entertainment Japan’s answer to the popular “Monster Hunter” series. Keiji Inafune is well known for the Onimusha and MegaMan series that he created for Capcom. Now he’s back with this brand new IP for Sony.
Without giving anything away, the game is very mission based. You have your typical collect/find items and kill the boss type of scenarios. Instead of dinosaur type monsters, though, you wage battle with evil, demonic, trippy looking creatures. From Cerberus to a Harpy, even a possessed Rat. What’s impressive about this game is the character design and stages. The creatures that you fight are gloriously well drawn and animated. You gotta have some type of imagination to be able to think of these type of creatures. They do not look typical at all. A lot of reviews I read for this game just talk about the gameplay and multiplayer aspect, however there is more to it than that.
Inaba—a quiet town in rural Japan. A normal teenager arrives at the station to begin his year-long stay in the countryside, only to be welcomed by the news of a dead TV announcer. Shortly after, another body appears, mysteriously hung from the top of a telephone pole. The cause of death is unknown, with no leads on the suspect… As the peaceful community is thrown into turmoil, the urban youth and his classmates wander into a strange, surreal place covered by a thick fog…
Persona 4: Golden is a Japanese-RPG for the Playstation Vita developed by Atlus. This game is an enhanced port of “Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4″, a Playstation 2 game that was released in 2008.
This is the first game in the “Persona” series I ever played, and I’m very impressed by its huge scale -the story runs for almost a full year- and its very solid RPG mechanics. I’m around 50 hours in the game, haven’t finished my first playthrough yet, and I’m still amazed by how fun each moment spent in this game is!
The PS Vita game, escapeVektor, doesn’t seem to have a lot of substance at first glance, but I decided to look a little further.
When you start, you have an arrow you move around on some lines. This arrow is Vektor, a sentient computer program that is trying to escape from the evil CPU inside your PS Vita.
Ecolibrium is a new Vita app coming today for free. It is a virtual ecosystem game, that puts you in control of creating and maintaining a “beautiful and foreign ecosystem”. “You’ll be able to raise unique and alien species, design the world to your liking, and explore ecosystems yourself using PS Vita’s unique gyroscopic technology.”
You will also be able to acquire, collect and trade new plants and animals with other PS Vita owners. “Collect new creatures using the GPS feature of the PS Vita 3G model and show them off to your friends on Facebook. Release unwanted creatures into the wild for other players to pick up using “near”. Unlock new content by completing challenges.”
There will also be things to buy I’m sure. This looks interesting, and I’ll definitely be checking it out.
