41w ago - Combat Designer Ray Ray Shen at SuperBot Entertaintment has shared a video today of some PaRappa strategies for PlayStation All-Stars below.
To quote: I'm Ray Ray Shen, Combat Designer at SuperBot Entertaintment, and it has been a rhythmic ride to
design PaRappa's gameplay in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale!
To pay homage to such an iconic and beloved character, I made sure to do my homework first. Besides thoroughly replaying PaRappa's games, I also checked out his soundtrack, anime, merchandise and advertisements to get a full sense of his appeal.
PaRappa is unique not only because of his paper-like look, but also because of his passion and determination. Without crazy magical powers or heavy weaponry, PaRappa's moveset is based on his energetic, rapid kung-fu moves, his funky skateboard skills and his love of music.
To add an extra flourish, incorporated his biggest crush and motivation in life, Sunny Funny, into some of his actions. PaRappa's groovy charm definitely gives the gameplay a lighthearted spin, such as when he has Boxy Boy generating AP on Down + Circle and asks everyone to join his...

64w ago - Following up on his previous update, today PS Vita homebrew developer wololo has announced that the PS Vita Half Byte Loader (VHBL) will arrive shortly after March 1, 2012 with details below.
To quote: "This has been a tough week for lots of you, coming to my blog everyday to see that no new information was available about the release of VHBL. Trust me, it's been a much tougher week for me, making sure things go according to my humble plan, coping with a few more issues than expected, and overall, taking all the insults about "being a faker" or "trying to boost my ego" without being able to say anything else than "please trust me".
Ok, let's reveal a few essential things here, starting with the bad news: The game used by Teck4′s exploit is not available on the US vita store. Blame Sony and their "275 out of 900 PSP games available for your vita" scheme for this, not us. Part of the waiting time was to see if Sony would add this game to the US store at some point. It is obviously compatible since it is available in other continents, so my guess is that this is a marketing or a legal decision.
