145w ago - Assistant Community Manager Aaron Webber at Sega of America has announced that the Valkyria Chronicles II PSP and PSPgo demo is available on PSN beginning today.
To quote: As Valkyria Chronicles II gets close to its August 31st release, we'd like to give you all a little sample of the game to try out and play for yourselves!
If you've been wondering how Valkyria Chronicles II holds up to the first game, today you can experience the glory of getting those lovely headshots on a rebel (or ten) while on-the-go.
If you loved the first game, you'll be glad to see that the feel of battle has been not only preserved, but also improved upon greatly. The new multi-field battle layout also adds another level of strategy, giving some missions a number of paths for you to send your squad through.
Jeff and I also talked about the multiplayer in one of the recent blogs here, which offers both cooperative and competitive play in addition to the full RPG storyline.
Valkyria Chronicles II may be a PSP game in relation to its older PS3 brother, but trust me when I say not to take it lightly. This little gem not only manages to do justice to one of my favorite RPG Battle systems - ever - but also brings back the CANVAS system for a beautiful watercolor finish that looks...
150w ago - Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda has announced that the Patapon 3 multiplayer PSP Demo hits PSN today.
To quote: Today is finally here (today being Tuesday, July 6th). In a few hours -- as soon as the PlayStation Store refreshes all its content -- you'll be able to download the much-anticipated bite-sized summer snack known as the Patapon 3 Multiplayer Demo.
Are you ready to play to your heart's content? Are you already tapping your feet/toes/fingers in sweet rhythmic anticipation? Yeah you are...

• New Enemies
• Intro to the Patapons' new adventure
As mentioned before, this is a multiplayer demo, so you'll need either an internet connection to fight along/against other players world-wide (that means around the world!) or four of your bestest local Patapon friends to enjoy this demo... and since it is free, there...
151w ago - Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda has confirmed today that the new Patapon 3 Multiplayer PSP demo will be hitting PSN on July 6, 2010 for free!
To quote: So you say, "What's so special? Patapon 2 also had multiplayer!"
Well let me enlighten you with a few cool single-eyed-facts (to keep it in theme, I'll limit them to three):
• Patapon 3 is a whole new chapter in the Patapon saga
• There are some really cool new characters, including the Superhero Patapon.
• To experience the awesome multiplayer adventures that lay beyond Patapolis, you'll have to go through a strange portal called "the Internet."
That's right. Patapon 3 has entered the interwebz (so to speak), with exciting new adventures that you can play with your friends via a Wi-Fi connection. This demo is but a peephole glimpse into a new world full of larger-than-eye enemies, super stylized eye-watering graphics, and eye-popping excitement.
Should I tell you more? Ok, fine. The Patapon 3 Multiplayer Demo adventure can be downloaded for FREE on Tuesday, July 6th from the PlayStation Store... exclusively for your PSP.
If you are looking extremely confused and asking yourself, "what is a Patapon?", here's a quick recap of the story so far (now I am making...
