With E3 approaching fast, it would only be right for the big players to get the ball rolling and begin announcing what we can expect from their respective shows this year. And, in an official PlayStation blog posting, Sony have done just that by dropping in not one, not two… but six — count ‘em six — titles that they will definitely be showcasing at the beginning of June.

There are a plethora of video games that have never seen American, European, or Japanese soil. While many may believe this an atrocity there are certain factors that keep these games at bay. Whether its cultural differences or money issues, publishers usually have a valid excuse. Other times, they seemingly do it for no reason. Games like Mother 3 and Terranigma are popular titles and their ancestors (Earthbound and Illusion of Gaia) were popular in America, yet they never made it outside of Japan and Europe (Mother 3 was never released outside of Japan).

Perhaps the limited success of the TurboGrax-16 in America would have contributed to this, but I say that the lack of games, like Rondo of Blood, is what ultimately finished the system. Thanks to Sony, the long lost Castlevania has finally seen worldwide release. Castlevania: the Dracula X Chronicles is a remake of Rondo of Blood, along with extra bells and whistles. Utilizing 2.5D graphics and old school gameplay, this new version is a testament to the original, even if its age shows through.

Although Devil May Cry is a fairly big franchise, you won’t find may gamers left who still hunger for a PSP iteration of the 3rd Person Action/Shooter. By chance if you do find one of them you can go ahead and tell them that the game has been scrapped.

The PSP has become a very versatile platform with both UMD, and downloadable titles. Perhaps this will be taken a step further, as the fine folks over at Arstechnica are reporting that the Patapon 2 retail release will contain a voucher for a code that will allow you to download the game via the Internet.

Rumors have been surfacing for quite some time about a new Playstation Portable. These rumors have intensified recently, with a bold statement that we will see a brand new PSP before the 2009 holiday rush. The newest rumors again state that the touchscreen will slide up to reveal controls that include a d-pad and two thumbsticks.

Sony has yet to comment on these rumors, but it is safe to assume that if it is true all will be revealed at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.

When I was a lad and cheery of smile I was promised a future where we’d all be flying around in our own personal transporters, walking electric dogs on floating treadmils, and eating our fourteen course calorie-free banquets with mints and a cigar follow-up in one convenient little white pill.

ffdisThe Final Fantasy: Dissidia trailer is out. Why you need a trailer for a fighting game that is already out in Japan is very unclear to me. Either way if you need something to tide you over until the game releases in the US this summer or September for Europe, just watch this to your hearts content.

When you hear someone talking about JRPGs, you’ll think of Final Fantasy but more precisely, Final Fantasy VII (FFVII). Hate it or love it, you just have to admire what Final Fantasy VII did for the genre. It’s no surprise Square was going to release numerous FFVII titles, known as the Final Fantasy VII Compilation, after the success of Final Fantasy VII.  The big question is: is Crisis Core a worthy addition to the Final Fantasy VII Compilation?

Mega Man is one of gaming’s longest running and most recognizable series.  Capcom has succeeded in nearly every effort with their blue bomber because they have been able to rejuvenate the basics of the game without deviating too far from what made Mega Man 1 fun back in 1987.  Capcom has come full circle with Mega Man: Powered UP on PSP, as they revisit the original Mega Man game and enhance it with a face lift and additional content featuring a level building/ sharing system.  Do these improvements create a more accessible Mega Man experience for everyone, or does the kiddy veneer only succeed in alienating anyone over age 10?
