Madoka Magica Portable

As you can see that vile creature is back to create more Mahou Shoujo. Once more supporting that thing hardly bodes well if one already has finished the animation. If not do so, it's a really good one.
Since HomuHomu is advertising the game I made an exception for it.
For more information about the first person game please visit the official site

No Information has been leaked when the game actually plays, it could be anything even an alternate universe.
The game will be released in two editions, a standard box including a bonus DVD, and a limited edition box containing a Madoka Figma, a bonus Blu-ray Disc, a Kyubey pouch, a 'HomuHomu' handkerchief and a special clear card for all who are willing to import it to enjoy.
or burn... burn that pouch...

Yahoo minna the Hyperdimension Neptune - Q&A is up!

Genki desu ne!?

Well that you've seen this fanart abomination probably not anymore.... *lol* Guess I have to apologize to my co-worker here for killing or rather blinding our visitors later on... changed the header, couldn't live with it anymore, sumimasen

I wanted to post something here, since I'm a huge fan of

Hyperdimension Neptune/Neptunia.

It's not exactly news but in case you failed to notice Siliconera and NISA finished the Q&A for the gamers!
If you haven't asked your question yet... it's probably too late to do so, or you could just head over to the Nippon Ichi America Forums!

Here you go, one link to the Q&A:
Siliconera Q&A with NISA

There they answered the most crazy questions about the game without hinting too much on the actual gameplay. That's some kind of sweet fanserice here, so applause for NISA! We would wish some more initiative on those matters from other publishers as well, wouldn't we?

Image Epoch got a delicious New Years announcement!

Once more there's the day when the year changes, since it's part of our life we don't see it as something really special except for blowing things up. Like a Kyuubey PVC (I know I will) or different explosives for the fun and view.

Imageepoch on the other hand wants to use this occation to bring you some JRPG news for a news game they would love to release.

P4 the Golden! News!

Helloooo~ and welcome back to your personal Midnight Arena! This time when you get sucked into your precious TV there will be some changes in for you that might come in handy!

Aselia the Eternal Will Recieve a PSP Port

Cyberfront will release an optimized port of the strategy/adventure game "Aselia the Eternal" on Playstation Portable.

Tales of Innocence - R Screenshot Time!

New screenshots of Tales of Innocence R have arrived, this time detailed Artes pictures of Ruca, Astra his blade Durandal, Spada, Iria and Inanna, Ricardo, Hypnos as well as Ange and Orifiel.
While we are stil eagerly waiting for an announcement Japan will be able to play the game on January 26.

Tales of Innocence R will then be available on Playstation Vita and Nintendo DS. Since the release chances of the DS version are pretty slim (it was already released in 2006) the PSVita might be able to provide another ray of hope for a localization on western shores for this title.

Suikoden - The Woven Web of a Century -

A new trailer has arrived that does not only introduce some of the characters and probably the games theme song but also new pieces of gameplay!
Officially named "Genso Suikoden: Tsumugareshi Hyakunen no Toki" (lit. tapestry of a hudred years of time)aka The Woven Web of a Century will soon be available for Playstation Portable.

Japan will see it's release in February. But it is yet unknown if we will also be able to play it sooner or later.

Ragnarok Odyssey - Let's get those jobs done!

By now you might have survived christmas and are ready to game again. So for a little wake up call we arranged a little collection of preview videos of Ragnarok Odysseys Jobs.
As you might assume those are the same job classes as in Ragnarok Online, the old school MMO-RPG from "Gravity" that has been around for ages now. But how will they work when one isn't bound by simple point and click mechanics?

You might want to see the answer for two of them right below here!

Dungeons of Dredmor: Review

Don't you just know that situation, when you see what seems like a good deal yet you're not completely convinced you'll have an actual use for the product? Even worse, when you learn about how exciting said thing seems to be, and you regret not taking a closer look before? Well, that describes my first encounter with Dungeons of Dredmor.
Thanks to the Steam Holiday Sale and the accompanying event, I got to play the game for the first time - and got addicted.

To my defence - DoD got released on the same day as Cthulhu Saves the World, which was an instant-buy for me. Thus, my indie-needs were satisfied for the time being, and I moved on, laughing about mighty Cthulhu and his groupie.
In hindsight, I shouldn't have disregarded the Dungeons of Dredmor, which the over 6 hours I've put into the game since Tuesday evening have clearly proven.

Playstation Vita - Ragnarok Odyssey Opening

Aside from the fact that the games and peripherials are selling extremely well and exceed even Sony's expectations we have something nice for you all to watch this time!

In previous news we already covered the fact that the new Sony handheld will recieve a more or less special game. At least for those who weren't able to play the DS and 3DS titles.

Atlus reveals next game title!

 Aside of mysterious letters and riddles atlus finally unveiled the first game with the letter "G".

Yes you got that right, the first game! Its name is Gungnir and it shall be hailed all over the world! Let it resound for it is a marvelous SRPG!

Tales of Innocence: KyuKyu and Spada in Action!

Once more two characters of Tales of Innocence-R and their Mystic Artes! Prepare for the dual weilding Spada and polearm user KyuKyu to sweep you away on the Playstation Vita!

. Hack will return for a new round and a new threat in "The World"

It is yet unknown for which platform the game will appear but CyberConnect2 made the dream of most fans of this franchise come true.
"Another visit in The World"

Matsuyama Hiroshi, the head of CyberConnect2 said in an interview in Famitsu that he cannot reveal which hardware that new .hack game will run on. But he mentioned that the graphics are being rendered in real time. He also acknowledged that the new project has taken it's turn for photorealism after the anime-influenced look of previous titles.

Is that G.U.'s Haseo or is it not? That question has yet to be answered

Recettear & Chantelise 75% off!

Not kidding, these two games are too excellent to pass on them!

Both Alkaid and I absolutely love these little gems, they're worth every cent.
And believe me, they're dirt cheap today. You've got over 22 hours to buy them with that discount, so hurry. They won't eat your hard-earned cash without giving you a fantastic experience in return.

Chantelise comes along for 1,99€ / $2.49 while Recettear (which will last longer) costs only 3,74€ / $4.99 today. Yes, fair pricing for european customers, isn't that nice?

Grab the demos of Recettear and Chantelise on their Steam-storepages and try them yourselves!

Both games come with a charming taste of humor and heartwarming scenes, and I can only recommend them as christmas presents for people interested in gaming, no matter how old they might be. They're also fitting gifts for your kids, siblings or cousins.

A note apart from the actual games:
Carpe Fulgur is really doing a great job localizing these games, and there's more to come.
If you appreciate the effort, please spread the word to your friends, family or random strangers on the internet, show them that these games are worth the money and support Carpe Fulgur in their Holy Quest to bring us awesome doujin games to enjoy!

Click the image to visit the game's storepage on steam!

Co-Worker edit: Buy it, it's really great, extremely good/addicting and very old-school!

Digimon RE-Digitize what we know so far

Here's a new shounen jump scan of our new Digimon World game for Playstation Portable. Aside from that there did not leak very much information out yet. Bandai Namco delayed the release from 2011 in Japan to "2012".

Playstation Vita - Hardware special

Playstation Vita VS PSP Comparison

Here you can see what PSP games will look like on your Playstation Vita.

In the setting menu screen, you can toggle bilinear filtering on and off, set the color space to PSP or Vita, toggle between rear and front camera for PSP games that use the camera, and set the right stick mapping.

The right stick mapping let you map the PSP's analogue nub, d-pad or action buttons to the Vita's right stick. For Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, you'd select the d-pad, which would map the game's camera control to the right stick.

XSEED Announces Sumioni: Demon Arts

Aaaaaaand we're back with some excellent news! XSEED, our beloved publisher of titles like Trails in the Sky, Corpse Party and Fishing Resort officially announced its next localization today. This time it's all about "Sumioni: Demon Arts". Never heard of it? Well, that's not surprising, since it's a Playstation Vita title and isn't even out in Japan yet.
From the looks of it, Sumioni will be one of the launch titles for the western PSV release!

Sumioni presents the PSVita's new features, specifically what you can do with the touchscreen, and how it can benefit Games. This example featuring the Ink Demon (who looks pretty cool!) shows expertly how to involve touch controls in your games to create a unique feeling, rather than just adding them for the sake of it.
Sitting in the camp of "traditional" controls, I can't help but be excited about that game.
Thanks to XSEED it will eventually appear on my doorstep - in a language I can understand!

Playstation Vita - Unboxing & Dynasty Warriors NEXT Gameplay Video

A generous costumer allows us to see the unboxing of Sonys newest handheld, as well as a few seconds gameplay of Dynasty Warriors Next.

Playstation Vita - Does Size Matter?

You might find yourself asking exactly that when you look at the 3DS or the UMD disks.
Most of the cardriges and different media over the years took many forms and colors. But no matter where you go, having several disks or modules with you is always a disadvantage.

Tales of the Heroes Twin Brave - Another Tales of:

New character Videos are available to your leasure as well as three scans and some information that might make your heart skip a beat!

Most of the Players might already own the Playstation two version and love it to hell and back.
A friend of mine for example is constantly remindung me that I said something like:
"I will defeat you again and again! Akiha is still in there and Red Arc as well! Not even RYOUGI or Type Earth can stop me!" (guess I was too full of myself 'cause he's still waiting like a hawk. xD)

VGAs (and who the hell is Felicia Day?)

Finally, the most pretentious Gaming-related event of the year is over.
Unlike E3, Gamescom or the Tokyo Game Show, the Spike Video Game Awards are that kind of event that does not contribute anything to Gaming as a whole, but only bloats those already bloated even more.

Playstation Vita - News

Sony's upcoming PSP successor, the Vita, will offers discounted pricing on games sold digitally versus those bought at retail. So you might get some games up to 20 percent cheaper than at your lokal retailer.

It seems like that our sleek new Sony PSP successor will also bring a few 'displeasing' additions with it.

The Stars are Left is out!

Just a short newsflash - surprisingly, it just got released on Steam... alongside two item packs.

Grab the packs here:

The Stars are Right is a new Adventure expansion for the highly popular and successful PC action/adventure game Magicka. This time Arrowhead has moved on from the jungles of Vietnam and set their sights on the maddening Cthulhu mythos. For the first time since the release of the original game players will once again be able to join forces in a coop-supported adventure campaign. Fighting their way through several completely new levels, fending off multitudes of strange horrors, vanquishing horrid bosses and solving peculiar puzzles.

Little Busters! For PSVita

Following the game port from 2007 for PS2 and PSP "Little Busters! Converted Edition" will also be released for the Playstation Vita!

What does that mean for fans of Key's Visual Novel in Japan? (for us it probably means we need to hack the PSVita to get a translated version??)

Magicka: The Stars are Left - Live Action Trailer

Arrowhead and Paradox have done another one of their super awesome Live Action Trailers for Magicka!

We remember, there's been a PvP Live Action Trailer in the past, which still is hilarious - watch it!

The stars are almost left at this point! The DLC is on the doorstep!
What does Nyarlathotep have in store for us Wizards?
