To quote: Hi there! Greg Johnson again. We here at HumaNature Studios are excited to finally announce that Doki-Doki Universe will be available next week on Tuesday, December 10th for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. In Doki-Doki Universe you play as the adorable robot QT3 on a quest to learn about humanity with the help of Alien Jeff.
The full game, available for $14.99, includes the story mode, 31 personality quizzes, and the Doki-Doki Mail messaging system. Or if you prefer to test out the waters before diving in, you can alternatively download a free version of the game - the Starter Pack - which includes 16 personality quizzes, Doki-Doki Mail, QT3's home planet, and a tutorial planet. Doki-Doki Universe will support cross buy, so once you download the game on one system, you'll be able to download it at no additional cost on the other systems.
In the spirit of the upcoming launch, I'll be joining the PlayStation.Blog team to do a live playthrough on December 10th. Check out the official PlayStation channel on Twitch to watch and ask questions. We'll also be giving away voucher codes for the full...
4d ago - Omni Systems Limited Creative Director Rudolf Kremers shared a video today confirming that Eufloria HD is coming to PS Vita on December 17th, 2013.
To quote: Hello friends! Eufloria HD is coming out on December 17th for PS Vita!
This makes me happy, indeed. As an indie game developer, I remain amazed at the journey this game is taking, and the superb response it gets from fans. And as a proud Vita owner, it's fantastic to be able to announce this release.
Having launched a few different iterations of Eufloria over the years, I've come to appreciate that each one poses a new challenge. How do we adapt the controls? Does the game speed work nicely?
Are the visuals "right?" Generally there are real problems to overcome before you can settle on a solution that's right for everybody. Well, this Vita version is quite different, but in a very positive way. Here's why...
Eufloria is a funny thing. It may be "just" 2D, but you end up controlling thousands of seedlings across dozens of asteroids, zooming in to the level of individual blades of grass, or zooming out to see a bird's eye view of an entire asteroid belt - all within the space of seconds.
This works really well, and is very pretty, but admittedly can be a bit of...

2w ago - Guerrilla Cambridge Senior Producer Mark Green shared details on new Killzone Mercenary PS Vita updates today alongside some free multiplayer maps below.
To quote: Hi Everyone. Amongst all the excitement for the launch of PS4 and, of course, Killzone Shadowfall, here at Guerrilla Cambridge we've still been busily working away on Killzone Mercenary. We're now very pleased to announce that there will be a number of updates coming over the next few months.
First up is Update 3. In terms of functionality there will only be minimal changes, but this is the patch that reduces the size of the other patches! After installing this patch it will free up around 800MB of space for those who have already installed Updates 1 & 2. Update 3 should be ready in the next few weeks.
Update 4 is due in January and is being designed to improve Matching and to help reduce join-game connectivity problems, as well as adding an auto team-rebalancing feature.
Following that is the big one: Update 5. Two new multiplayer maps for FREE, and the release of offline Botzone for Mercenary and Guerrilla Warfare modes.
Also in the first few months of 2014 will be Update 6, in which we're working towards continued refinements and adding support for playing Killzone Mercenary on Vita TV (only applicable...
2w ago - XSeed Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz announced today that Ys: Memories of Celceta is out today for PS Vita.
To quote: It's here! Ys: Memories of Celceta, the latest installment in Nihon Falcom's storied Ys series, is out today for PS Vita. It's $39.99 for the digital or physical standard edition, and $59.99 for the swanky Silver Anniversary Edition.
The Silver Edition comes with a 130-page "Travel Journal" full of art, maps, and strategies, a cloth map depicting the lands of Celceta, a three CD compilation of original and arranged music, and a logo-emblazoned compass.
Last time on the blog, I spoke of Celceta's myriad features, its basic premise, and the history of the many games called "Ys IV," but one question I kept hearing was, "Is this a good place to start if I've never played an Ys game before?"
And while I did my best to reassure you all that you'll be just fine starting your adventure here in Celceta, I thought it might be prudent to go into a little more detail on what the series is, how it's changed over the years, and just how accessible its games really are.
So... let's start at the beginning, shall we?
The Ys series debuted in 1987 on various Japanese computer systems, and was an instant hit due to its fast-paced action, its...
