Black Rock Shooter: The Game is a pretty unique prospect. It arrived in Japan in 2011 as the first videogame follow-up to the popular manga and anime series, and now, two years later, it’s ready for an international release.

As a mix of both RPG and action concepts, describing Black Rock Shooter: The Game is fairly difficult. One thing is for sure though — the experience is the very definition of “niche.”

Muramasa: the Demon Blade developer Vanillaware is back with a new, turn based RPG called Grand Knights History. The upcoming PSP title is releasing in Japan next week and I’ve had  my eye on it for a while now.  Unfortunately, so far the only footage of the game has come in the form of short gameplay clips — until now.

An actual real-life trailer has appeared for your viewing pleasure and in typical Vanillaware fashion, it’s looking gorgeous. Hopefully, Marvelous Entertainment will bring this one stateside, but as of yet nothing has been confirmed. If not, at least Sony has the decency to make their consoles region free, unlike some people.

The trailer and an all-new gameplay short await you after the break.

At the peak of a 12 year working relationship, Sony has acquired Sucker Punch Productions, makers of the inFamous and Sly Cooper series. Both sides have expressed nothing but excitement about the deal, which will have all future products release under the Playstation monicker.

On the consumer side, it will be as if nothing has happened. Sucker Punch titles have consistently been exclusive to the Playstation brand. Yet, there are more subtle forces at play that may prove to be less than favorable.

Sony is offering PlayStation Network users free games as a part of the Welcome Back program. Unfortunately, the offer is ending this weekend. Sony’s been pretty generous, offering up to four free games on account of taking so long to re-secure their online service after that “unauthorized intrusion”.

If you want to get your hands on titles like Little Big Planet,  Super Stardust HD, inFamous, Wipeout HD, Modnation Racers, and Killzone: Liberation for free you should turn on that PSP or PS3 before Sunday July 3rd.

Lots of big news this week! Beyond Good and Evil HD has finally made its way to PSN. PlayStation Plus Members get access to the “free” Uncharted 3 Beta. Duke Nukem Forever is now available in demo form.  And there’s plenty of great PSP deals thanks to the new Dual-Pack deal.

Information on all this and more awaits you after the break.

As bizarre as that title looks, it’s not really symbolic.  Dissidia 012 is just the prequel to the original Dissidia, which brought Final Fantasy protagonists together in one big fighting fan service throwdown.  It wasn’t a triumph among fighting games but its reasonable success was in following the philosophy that if you’re going to make a fan service game for your customers you might as well give it dynamic combat, a great soundtrack and lots of unlockables.  A second round of fan service might be pushing it, though.  Dissidia 012 would need to rise to the challenge by offering a lot more than its predecessor.

Does Dissidia 012 stand up as a follow-up in its own right?  Let’s take a look.  After all, what better way to celebrate the passing of E3 with a game that came out in March?

While at Gamestop today to pick up Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, I spotted the fabled “PSP Dual-Packs” that were announced a few days back.

Weighing in at the low price of $14.99, the three current packs aren’t too shabby, given how pretty much every title in there is considered a Western classic. Personally, I wish that both Syphon Filters were included in one set, but hey, that’s how they get ya!

If you have the itch to pick one of these up, you can also get them digitally, which I highly recommend if you’re going to be buying a Vita (UMDs in all likelihood will not transfer over, but PSN downloads will).

Alien Zombie Megadeath, a new Killzone 3 map pack, three new PSP minis, a host of deals and bundles and more are now available via the PlayStation Network this week. The full details await you after the break.

There it is ladies and gentlemen. The NGP is officially named the PS Vita. Vita, meaning “life” in Latin is easily the worst product name I have ever heard.

While this has been rumored for a while now, all of us here at Gamer Limit have hoped that it wasn’t true. But, despite the poor name, the features and games shown during the Sony press conference were quite promising. And at $249 for the Wi-fi version and $299 for 3G, it falls right in line with one of its competitors, Nintendo’s 3DS. Sad to think that is an acceptable price for a handheld these days. Oh economy, how I hate thee. Hit the break for a full breakdown of the PS Vita.
