133w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has posted up a video today announcing that Galaxy Fight is now playing the blues in the PSN Import Store.

To quote: When my son talks about his favorite rock bands and the music of today, I always advise him to listen to the blues.

To fully understand music, you have to look at its roots. The blues brought us many of today's contemporary sounds. Art of any form is a collection of creative inspiration. Past masters influence resonate with today's prodigies and new art is conceived. The same is true of games.

One reason retro gaming is enjoying its recent renaissance is because gamers want to go back to their roots. Today's games, with their mesmerizing graphics, sometimes lack a simple hook. Graphics can become a form of marketing, which can distort the mechanics and gameplay. Retro games didn't have that luxury.





MonkeyPaw is all about the chance to relive some of those great games that made you a gaming junkie. So today we present a title that reminds us of our fighting game foundations. Galaxy Fight is a classic SunSoft title that strangely never found its way West.

You'll see the first time an "endless" platform was used in...

133w ago - Today PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has shared a video (below) demonstrating several PSP homebrew applications and emulators running on PS Vita using their Half-Byte Loader (HBL).

To quote: In the past days I stabilized HBL for Teck4's exploit and got some major homebrews to work.

In the video below I'm showing a few homebrews running on the PS Vita. I also included Picodrive again to show that fixing the sound issue is relatively easy as it is just a setting in the emulator. Check the video below.

You can see in this video snes9xTYL (super nes emulator), Bookr (pdf reader), CSPSP, T.O.M.E. (text mode rpg), EmuMaster (game boy emulator), Zombie Crisis (FPS), Wagic (which loads about 10 times faster than on a real PSP, this talks for the improved access speed of this new memory stick format), cavestory (platform/adventure), Picodrive (sega genesis emulator), Spider solitaire, ScummVM (point-and-click adventure), Daedalus (N64 emulator, this is not DaedalusX64), FCEU-PSP (Nes emulator). Those are more or less the homebrews I [Register or Login to view links] to HBL users back when HBL was big.

Missing from this video is (unfortunately) gpsp which I couldn't get to run on the Vita, while it ran fine...

133w ago - Leader inXile CEO Brian Fargo has announced today alongside a video trailer that Choplifter HD will be hitting PS3 on PSN Tuesday and includes zombies!

To quote: I really get a kick out of the fact that I am now considered an "indie" again after all these years.

I have been making games for nearly 30 years, having built a top-five PC publishing house called Interplay around such major franchises as The Bard's Tale, Wasteland, Baldur's Gate, Fallout, Descent and more.

In the early days, I developed games for other companies and moved up the food chain to become a publisher so that I could make games "my way."

And here I sit, again readying our first major release in Choplifter HD as a digital publisher and having created the game the way I wanted. Our company tagline at [Register or Login to view links] was "By Gamers. For Gamers" and it is those same values we used in creating Choplifter HD.

Choplifter was a very important game when it was originally released back in 1982 and achieved #1 status at the time. Dan Gorlin, the original creator, really understood the humanness of saving little people from tough situations.

It was a great action game for sure, but there was something about saving those little guys. And certainly...
