[Vita Review] Age of Zombies

Lock and load through the history of time as wisecracking hero Barry Steakfries, who is looking for nothing more than to shoot some zombies and make it back in time for a hearty dinner. The evil Professor Brains has sent hordes of undead to the furthest reaches of time, but Steakfries won’t be taking that lying down. He’ll take it with a gun, a Zombie T-Rex and a whole repertoire of cheesy one-liners!

Age of Zombies is the most recent game to land on the PS Vita from Halfbrick, the development studio behind Jetpack Joyride and Fruit Ninja. In this game, you play as Barry Steakfries and your goal is to shoot down all the zombies which have appeared in many different time periods. This game is also available as a minis release on the PSP (but without trophies), and on iOS and Android platforms.

[Vita JRPG Preview] Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars announced

Monsters have invaded the world of Aterra, and only a few special individuals, imbued with the power of the Star God, are equipped to fight it. With only a small group of warriors and a narrow window of time in which their powers are at their peak, the solution is clear: combine your Star power to make magical Star Children to boost up your forces in battle!
The life of a student can be complicated when you’re exploring dungeons, fighting monsters, AND trying to maintain a high school lifestyle. Learn to balance your activities because the deeper the bond you have with your classmates, the stronger the Star Children you’ll make! In this stimulating JRPG, you’ll be able to create bonds with 7 different female Disciples and create 24 classes of Star Children, so you must learn how to create the perfect Star Children for any situation. In no time, you’ll have dozens of powerful kids with different skills that can take on everything the monsters throw at you.

Atlus USA announced that Spike Chunsoft’s Japanese RPG Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars would get released on both the PS Vita and 3DS in North America, and is set for release on April 15, 2014.

The first Conception game was released on the PSP and didn’t get released outside of Japan, so I didn’t really know what to expect before looking at the trailer (included in the post). This game looks a LOT like the Persona series, which means that it promises to be a very fun game!

[Japanese PS Vita game] Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment announced

Sword Art Online (SAO) is a Japanese anime that aired in Japan between July and December 2012.
