72w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today alongside a video trailer that a new PSP SRPG Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time will be out next week!
To quote: We're way-fairly convinced you're going to find this post way-fairly awesome, and no, not just because it's about Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time, the upcoming PSP strategy RPG from, well... us.
As for why we're so convinced, it's becau- wait, what? Oh, no, you heard right; we said "PSP."
Look, folks, it's still an immensely popular system with a huge user base and an amazing library of RPGs and SRPGs. Also, with a game as ridiculously lengthy as Growlanser: WoT (and this PSP remaster is significantly meatier than the original release from way-back-when).
It does take a while to localize things from Japanese to English, so it's not as though we're eagerly planning PSP games for 2025. Unless, of course, the PSP becomes sentient and takes over the world, in which case we welcome our new PSP overlords and commit to supporting the system for all eternity.
Anyhoo, the reason you should be am excite for this post is because:
It is to celebrate the debut of the game's full trailer (above), which shows...
74w ago - Today PlayStation Vita developer wololo has announced news of VHBL success using a new PSP game exploit courtesy of neur0n with details below.
To quote from his blog: Sometimes, it’s just that simple...
Neur0n has been kind enough to share with me the details of his latest user mode exploit, so that I could help porting VHBL to his game on the EU and US versions (yes, the game seems to be available on all stores, and don’t stop reading here, it gets better).
Sometimes porting VHBL to a new game can be a pain in the rear. Many times, as I discovered the hard way, we hit a wall and have to give up after dozens of hours of investigation.
On this exploit too, had I been alone working on it, I would have given up. It seemed impossible to free most of the ram (VHBL basically needs to cleanly remove the game from the ram, in order to load homebrews instead), and the exploit ended up with about 2MB of free ram, instead of the 24MB that we usually expect.
But hey, that’s where comes the joy of working with talented people like Neur0n: he figured out, within 24hours, how to free the additional 22MB. I am not sure really how he found out, and why it works, but it damn works.

76w ago - Sony PlayStation Store Director Grace Chen is here with this weeks US PSN updates today, as follows:
We kick things off this week with two of the biggest PlayStation 3 games of all time are making their way to digital release for the first time.
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves are now available to download! Pick up both games as a bundle for $39.99, or purchase individually at $29.99.
The Amazing Spider-man hits theaters next week (and from the sounds of some early reviews, it sounds awesome) but the game is available for download today in the PS3 Full Games category.
Navigate through the Manhattan skyline with the return of the fan-favorite, free-roaming, web-slinging gameplay. With classic villains, visceral combat choices, and an all-new epilogue story to the movie, this is a release no super hero fan should miss.
Resident Evil fans have a lot to look forward to with Resident Evil 6, but to satiate the hunger for zombie action, you may want to check out Resident Evil: Chronicles HD.
This bundle of two amazing retellings of the early Resident Evil storylines features Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles (previously not available on PlayStation consoles), which have been...
76w ago - XSEED Games Production Assistant Brittany Avery has announced that PSP RPG Unchained Blades arrives on PlayStation Network today with details below.
To quote: It's a bird! It's a plane! It's... a guy with unusually long hair falling out of the sky and crashing head-first into a temple. Oops.
This is how you'll be introduced to everyone's favorite Dragon. In short, Emperor Fang is an arrogant jerk who goes to a heavenly temple in the skies and demands that the creator of the world, Goddess Clunea, find him the strongest guy in the world so he can kick more ass and take more names.
She basically laughs in his face and smacks him down to earth in a weakened state. Now that he's a 'fledgling', a child-beast in the form of a humanoid teen, he's forced to go through living temples called Titans to find the Goddess again and get his revenge.
After 300+ hours of time spent with the game, I feel I might have the qualifications to give it a score of badass/10. Which means 11. Maybe 11.5.
But since I can't actually score games I've worked on (some people might call that cheating), just remember the part where I started yelling at the screen because my favorite character, who is a Golem, started crushing on a loli Mandrake (this is actually a lot less creepy in context......
