Square Enix Announces Scarygirl is Scaring Her Way Onto PSN

350°
129w ago - Square Enix Product Manager Charles McCarter has announced today that Scarygirl is scaring her way onto PlayStation Network.

To quote: Hello PSN players! I hope that the season has been kind to you. While we're still in the tail-end of the Winter of RPGs, I'm here to share something completely different with you!

I'd like to introduce you to the newest female hero to join the Square Enix family. She's an unlikely heroine, but she's proven herself in her most recent adventure. I'm talking, of course, about Scarygirl.

But who is Scarygirl? That's a question she herself has been striving to answer. She washed ashore on an island, and was taken in by a friendly octopus named Blister.

Scarygirl knew that she was different--after all, she has one arm that's a tentacle, one arm that's a bone, and a really cool eyepatch.

Her problems started when she began having nightmares about a mysterious man. When Blister was unable to help her, he sent Scarygirl to the wise- if cryptic--Bunniguru. And, after speaking to him, she set out on a journey to discover the mystery of the man behind her nightmares.

A lot of enemies stand in her way, so she's going to have to do some fighting. But her unique arm allows her to do some rather unique attacks. Scarygirl can bash,...

Sony Confirms PS Vita PSN Accounts Linked to Memory Cards

750°
135w ago - Today Sony's associate brand marketing manager Crystal MacKenzie has confirmed that PS Vita PSN accounts are linked to the handheld's memory cards and not the device itself for those wondering.

Essentially this means those who like bringing their gamer profile and downloadable games over to a friends house to show them off will probably like the PlayStation Vita since the PSN accounts are bonded to the memory card they're downloaded to.

To quote from GameInformer.com (linked above): "Your PSN ID is bonded to your memory card and your memory card is bonded to your Vita," Sony associate brand marketing manager Crystal MacKenzie told [Register or Login to view links].

"So if you wanted to change different PSN users but use the same memory card, you would need to go factory reset."

So accessing your PSN account and games is as easy as swapping out the memory card they're installed on. Sounds simple enough. If you have too much media for one of Sony's spendy storage devices, you can have your PSN account linked to multiple memory cards.

One question I have is how often do you think you'll be swapping out memory...
