Our Big Trip To A Furniture Store Rented Out By Sony

(This is a writeup of my impressions of the fall Sony event; for a more complete look at everything, make sure you click over to the BBPS to get Jim’s take as well.)
Thanks to Jim’s meticulously groomed connections, he was able to score me a press pass to this event yesterday in Toronto. Which was [...]

Wipeout Pulse

The long-running Wipeout racing series has its roots deep in the history of the PlayStation. Its first incarnation was a slightly dodgy affair that held the promise of 3D antigravity racing, and despite a number of problems it went on to become a hit as the first non-Japanese PlayStation game. Wipeout 2097, or Wipeout XL [...]

Echochrome Is Dreamy

I used my randomly-forged Japanese PlayStation store account to download the Echochrome demo today for PS3. I also snagged the PSP demo, but was unable to check it out due to aforementioned forged Japanese account – the software instructed me that installing it under Nerfgun-san rather than Nerfgun would nuke my North American “certificate”, which [...]

Wipeout Pulse Caters To The Obsessives

When you’ve got insomnia, and you are a Wipeout fan awake at 4am, too tired to fly at 850KM/h, what do you do?

Pata pon chaka don pon demo

The Patapon demo materializes this afternoon on the PSN Store (PC and PS3).
Nothing more needs to be said. The game looks really promising. There’s a goofy, overly saccharine corporate-themed faux romantic announcement over at the SCE blog.
After you heave yourself, spent and drooling, off of your loved one this evening, you can enjoy some frantic [...]

PSP Firmware Updated With The Great Taste Of Skype

This would be firmware v3.90 if you are keeping score. This one’ll give you the Skype ability, provided you have A) a new thin PSP, not the old phat crap like me and B) a PSP headset, which I hadn’t even heard of before. And then you need to find a WiFi spot that’s [...]

Twitching and Snarling

(I’m going to be trying these big compilation posts for awhile, see if it works better. If you’d rather I did the old format, by all means, hurl fruit in the comments section, kthx.)
Ah, but these minor delays do tend to pile up, don’t they. I looked upon that little calendar on the right [...]

Echochrome Dated

Gamernode says: March 19th, for both PSP and PSN versions. I’ve been really looking forward to this one, even though I know it will probably drive me insane. But how can you resist M.C. Escher: The Videogame? This isn’t a choice.
I have to admit I’m a little disappointed – I hoped that Sony would use [...]
