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.

NEWS: PS3 Firmware Update Inbound

It’s been a while since we’ve had an update for Sony’s home console, so what can we expect when we turn on our machines tomorrow?

  • Playstation 2 backwards compatibility
  •  Improved web browser support
  • Updated video codec support
  • Better sorting method for music, photos and downloaded content
  • Updated Media Server support eliminating the DLNA Protocol 2006 error
  • Reduced number of options under the “System” tab merging common options under sensible headings

Dream on.

It’s only taken 5 years but Sony will now be implementing a sleep timer and virtual surround sound through headphones on all it’s content.

Anyone care?

What’s Up With That? Useless Firmware Updates

Updates.  So many updates.  I don’t know about you but when I get a game I want to be able to put it in and just start playing.  Whether it’s on the Xbox or the Playstation you can’t escape the inevitable mandatory update or install.  It’s painful.  What’s up with that?

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten

Just last week the guys over at NIS America shipped my all singing, all dancing Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten Limited Edition over for me.  Was it worth the £90?  I think so.
