  • They patented something the other week – whatever that turns out to be
  • Xenoblade will get a name
  • Gamecube games will be made available for download which ties in with the discontinuation of the current Wii U in japan, to make way for something with a large on board storage.  I’d like for it to be called the Wii cUbe but that’s never going to happen

Persona 4: The Golden

It has arrived.

For everything you need to know about this game just follow my Twitter or see “My Vita View” to the right as I will be screenshot-ing my way through this gem of an RPG.

If you haven’t played or heard of, and, you are interested in quality RPG gaming on the PS2 or more recently the PS Vita, then pick up Persona 4 Golden when it drops in Europe next year or alternatively import it as I have.

This game will be carrying me through until Ni No Kuni in January.

I have however literally just finished Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker as part of the HD Collection released earlier this year.  I was skeptical because of the handheld controls but rest assured it transfers well on to the big screen and controller.

Peace Walker is a full fledged Metal Gear Solid game in its own right and introduces characters Paz and Chico, mentioned and seen in the Metal Gear solid Ground Zeroes demo also shown off earlier this year.  If you want to know a bit about their back story, work your way through Peace Walker. It’s going to take you roughly 12 hours give or take side missions etc etc.

PREVIEW: Eurogamer Expo

Eurogamer kicks off today marking its fifth year running and third at Earls Court.  The expo offers members of the public and game industry regulars a chance to meet up, be social and play many of the new releases that are still a long way from being released.  Although for me personally this years expo hasn’t got a lot to offer, there is most definitely something for everyone and if you’re over the age of eighteen then even more as well.

Below is a list of where you are likely to find me throughout the course of the day.

NEWS: Ni No Kuni and We Are Tekken

On Friday 7th September I had the opportunity to visit GAME HQ in Basingstoke for a bit of a community meet in collaboration with Namco Bandai to celebrate the launch of Tekken Tag Tournament 2.  Tekken however, was not the only game Namco bought with them, oh no.  In a smaller room off to the side was Ni No Kuni.
