Oh my god, Xexyz?!

Oh, Hexyz Force: A similarly difficult-to-pronounce game title, but one that has the potential to be just as awesome as that little-known NES game. Announced today by Atlus, Hexyz Force is an upcoming PSP RPG set to be unleashed upon North America in May, promising “one of the most narrative-driven portable RPGs of all-time.”

Well, when you put it like that! Read on to get all of the details on what could be a great addition to those RPG-starved North American PSPs.

While it’s not necessarily rare for game servers for older games to be shut down, EA dropped the bomb today by announcing the server shut down of several of its titles for Xbox 360, PC and PS3 gamers. The thing that has many gamers in an uproar is that many of the included titles are the ’09 iteration of their respective games.

Usually server shutdown announcements are coupled with a healthy dose of time for gamers to patch their wounds and move on to greener and greater fields, however EA has stated that the servers for the games in the list below will be gone on February 2nd, 2010 which is exactly a month away. In addition, it seems while gamers will be able to play their games until the cut off date, many community forums and programs for the affected games will be closed before then.

While Blood Bowl is current available for the PC via digital distributors like Steam, there has been little mention of the Xbox 360 or PSP release, that is until today. Cyanide announced that the retail copies for the Xbox 360 and PC will arrive next month. The PSP release will come later this spring. Read more… »

If you’ve been waiting for the PSN exclusive Fat Princess to make its way onto another gaming system.. then wait no further, if you’re a PSP owner. 360 and Wii owners can lament the newest addition to the Fat Princess family, which will debut on the PSP system some time in 2010.

The new title is dubbed Fat Princess: Fistful of Cake and promises to bring the same frantic gameplay you love on your PS3, onto your handheld, but with a few new additional features even owners of the original game can appreciate.

PSPGo: To Catch A Robber?
By: | December 22nd, 2009

The love hate relationship fans have with the PSPGo isn’t really surprising considering how much controversy has surrounded the machine since its announcement, but the machine has received much love from an owner who goes by the online handle psich0m4n.

According to the gamer, a robber broke into his home and completely cleaned him out, stealing all of his games and consoles, even going so far as to jack the components and camera for his PS3. However, the thief was unaware that the PSP which remained in the gamer’s possession was linked to his PS3, which results in a pretty funny account of game recovery.

PSP Spider-man

To go along with the recent release of LittleBigPlanet on the PSP, Sony decided to send out a mass email advertising its upcoming PSP LBP accessory pack.  Nothing too extravagant: a Sackboy case, a new strap, and some stickers.  The bottom of the image, however, says something odd:

“For series PSP-1000, PSP-2000, PSP-3000, PSP-4000, and PSPgo.”  The PSP-4000 hasn’t been announced (or even mentioned) by Sony yet.  The PSPgo came out less than three months ago, and now they’re already planning on bringing out another iteration?  Sigh…

See the ad for yourself after the jump.  Maybe it’s a typo.  Probably not.

Gran Turismo PSP

When Gran Turismo, previously known as Gran Turismo Mobile, was first unveiled for the PSP, many gasped at such a tantalisingly mammoth prospect. As time went on however, the legitimacy of the project became increasingly uncertain, until now, a full half a decade since its initial announcement before the PSP was even born, it has finally been released from Polyphony’s scrupulous hands.

So then, considering fans have been pining over this release for such a long time, is Gran Turismo worth the wait, or is it too little too late?

The PSP Mini brand of games are intended to be short, downloadable titles that just about anybody could pickup and begin to play without much effort. Being utilized to entice the “App” obsessed community to switch from their jack-of-all-trade gadgets to the less capable PSP Go, there hasn’t been much success generating a worthwhile PSP Mini. That is, until now.

Halfbrick Studios comes bearing a delightful little stocking-stuffer right before the holidays in Blast Off, and their latest venture into the digital marketplace. It’s hard to praise or knock games that are priced less than a gallon of gasoline, but this PSP Mini definitely embodies the mini ideal, and should serve as an example for all others to strive for.

bloodlines3

Assassin’s Creed‘s first venture into the handheld market was an abysmal experience; released on the Nintendo DS, Altair was severely limited in his assassin-like efforts, only able to execute a fraction of his abilities due to the hardware’s limits. While it aided in continuing Altair’s story, it didn’t exactly strike a chord with critics or consumers, and was met with mixed reactions.

Learning from these mistakes, developers Ubisoft Montreal and Griptonite Games look to change things around by delivering a far more faithful adaptation of the third-person sandbox action adventure. But even on more powerful hardware, can Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines recapture the freedom and extravagant setting of the original while not falling victim to the same problems that marred the first installment?
