100°
266w ago - Today Atlus' Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced that 3D Dot Game Heroes is going retro on PS3 this coming May and shared a launch trailer (below).

To quote: Many words and terms are frequently thrown around in relation to classic gaming: retro, old school, and so forth.

Often, games will be referred to as throwbacks, praised for their ability to induce nostalgia and capture the magic of the golden era of gaming. But really, what does "retro," or any of those terms for that matter, really mean in reference to a game?

That the game manages to accurately capture the look of a classic title or genre? The sound? The feel? Does it more effectively evoke memories of childhood for the gamer than other games? Does it shun complexity in favor of simplicity?

We ask the question because it's at the heart of our latest game (we're [Register or Login to view links], by the way, publishers of SMT: Nocturne, SMT: Persona 4, and the sleeper hit of 2009, Demon's Souls).





3D Dot Game Heroes for PlayStation 3 is the ultimate love-letter to retro gamers, the definitive homage to the action-adventure legends we all grew up with.

Rant: When a Video Game Console Case Mod Goes Wrong

250°
290w ago - I have nothing against case mods, I've seen some nice mods over the years. But sometimes... things start to go south.

To the left is a normal looking PlayStation 2 system. Nothing out of the ordinary, PS2 stand, little pink memory card... but the eye sore on the right? Don't ask, I still can't figure out what is going on.

I figure the original PS2 brand on the console wasn't suffice enough for this person. No they had to go out, buy car branding letters so in case you were on the other side of the street passing by he/she or maybe he she's home you can still that's a PS2 in the living room.

Also if you're eyes haven't combusted in its sockets for watching this throw up, very intimidating dragon on the upper right side. If this wasn't enough of a car accident, this person finds a way to hit new lows... for whatever reason that I'm sure God himself is unable to answer if put on the spot.

Nothing saying PlayStation 2 like car decals, and giant fans, if it even is functional. Which is sad if it is, as this person should have been electrocuted during the install process.

Sadly the video game gods must have been upset at the world this...
