This classic dating simulation was first released in the late nineties. It was popular enough to spawn various sequels, an anime series, and even a radio drama! The story revolves around a protagonist who was constantly moving about during his childhood, so he never had time to form deeper relationships with those around him.
He receives a much unexpected letter from a mysterious paramour which simply states, "I want to see you." He's got it narrowed down to one of the 12 special women he met in his younger days, and it's up to the player to decide how this tale ends...
Players control our hero by making use of his incredibly tight schedule. You've only got so much time to spend with these ladies, so you have to make it count!
Carefully plan out each day by studying your calendar and preparing potentially romantic encounters with the 12 candidates....

Friend Network, already a huge hit in Japan and other territories in Asia, is a unique social application for PS Vita that allows you to interact with friends and meet new people in a whole new way.
Guided by PlayStation mascot mainstay Toro, the app lets PS Vita owners visualize their network of friends and gaming buddies through the use of avatars in a colorful environment, and through growing their friends list, players can grow their own unique town space within Friend Network.
With the ultimate goal of reaching 100 friends within Friend Network, lobbies are available where players can meet new friends and exchange virtual "business cards." These cards contain information that players can use to get to know others within Friend Network.
Additionally, Friend Network comes fully integrated with your favorite social networks....

Below are the details, to quote: By now, I'm sure you've caught the God of War: Ascension "From Ashes" live action trailer we debuted last Friday, and if you haven't, you need to go watch it right now!
You may have even caught the 60-second version air during the online live stream of the Super Bowl this past Sunday.
This trailer has been a labor of love for all of us here, and based on the comments and feedback on YouTube and elsewhere, all of the effort was well worth it. I'm very excited to share with you a couple of behind-the-scenes videos that show a glimpse of what went into bringing the world of Kratos to life.
