Akiba’s Beat Launches on PS4, PS Vita May 16

Posted by on Mar 29, 2017

OK, so Akiba’s Beat! This game has been the source of much confusion, and we’ve gotten many questions about it, so I’m here to set the record straight and give you all the information you’ve been seeking. H-Hopefully. (*anime-style hand-behind-head facial emote with blushed cheeks*)

First off, release date! We have one now. The game will be arriving on both PS4 and PS Vita, physically and digitally, on May 16 in North America. If you plan to get the game physically be sure you pre-order, because pre-order copies will be shipping with a pocket plushie of the game’s lovable (?) “ugly-cute” mascot, Pinkun (at participating retailers while supplies last).

Another big one: “How does this relate to Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed, XSEED’s previous Akiba-related game release?” The answer is… it doesn’t!

Watch 9 Minutes of Ghost In the Shell

Posted by on Mar 29, 2017

It set the standard for a futuristic global aesthetic and is simply spectacular.

What’s the Story with What Remains of Edith Finch?

Posted by on Mar 29, 2017

A few years ago, Giant Sparrow made a whimsical little game called The Unfinished Swan, which I (and many others) loved. A couple years later, they revealed their new project: a decidedly darker experience titled What Remains of Edith Finch. We’re nearing Edith’s release on PS4 (April 25 as part of the excellent Play Collective lineup), so I jumped at the opportunity to play a short section of the game and talk to its creative director, Ian Dallas.

Posted by on Mar 28, 2017

Imagine yourself as a little, lost creature. Something strange, fragile, and… squishy? You’ve been separated from your kin in a traumatic flood; washed away to an unfamiliar land filled with dangerous predators and incomprehensible mysteries.How will you survive? Where will you take shelter when the rains come again?
