I Want Dark Cloud 2 on the Playstation Store! Give me more JRPGS


+ Boyanime010 on January 19th, 2013 at 7:37 am said:

Sony! Please give us Dark Cloud 2 & take our money!!! :)


+ Boyanime010 on January 19th, 2013 at 7:38 am said:

Give Us more JRPGS & take our money haha :)


+ Elvick_ on January 19th, 2013 at 7:49 am said:

Ponyo. Ponyo is the one you were going for. And it wasn’t the last Ghibli film, Secret World of Arietty (sp?) was.

I’d rather have an HD Collection of Dark Cloud personally… but I’ll take what we get. Also, Wild Arms 3 and on please. :D


+ snakeeyes211 on January 19th, 2013 at 8:21 am said:

It took this long for the maintenance just because they needed to add PayPal ?? :-/


+ DarkOne_PR on January 19th, 2013 at 8:22 am said:

wow took sony long enough… totally ruined my Dark Souls co op


+ Robbie_G_lrish on January 19th, 2013 at 9:42 am said:

@7 They added PayPal? That’s awesome actually.


+ TomHoang on January 19th, 2013 at 9:48 am said:

Haha, Sid, you actually pronounced Studio Ghibli correctly. It’s pronounced “ji-bli” as opposed to “gi-bli.” Anyone who studies Japanese can confirm this.


+ TwiztidPsycho420 on January 19th, 2013 at 10:00 am said:

i know this is completely unrelated to the topic, but i didnt see anywhere else to put it! are we gonna have to wait til tuesday for the store update for nuketown zombies? or is it gonna be up asap cuz the maintenance is finished?
sorry again for verring off topic! i would like to know though! :)


+ boomstickbhg on January 19th, 2013 at 10:14 am said:

Thank you for finally confirming that there will be a day one digital release for No Ni Kuni!!!

Good stuff keep it up.


+ Onvertic on January 19th, 2013 at 10:42 am said:

Hey guys what happened to the ps mobile game I’m Gonna Be God of The Forest? It was mentioned in a blogcast but it never appeared on the store.


+ MakiKurrino on January 19th, 2013 at 10:47 am said:

Hey Sid, first time commenting, Love the show! anyways, I have a question;

Any Idea how big the file for Ni No Kuni will be? I’d like to know so I can have plenty of space for it on Tuesday!


+ Akibara12 on January 19th, 2013 at 10:48 am said:

No Rey in this episode again? Guess I’ll just listen to you guys. On another note, where do we report firmware issues or bugs? I’m currently having a minor issue with my vita after the 2.02 update. I have only used one wallpaper on multiple tabs on the vita since the update. Now each time I browse through the tabs, the same wallpaper I’ve used on all the tabs keeps refreshing. The previous firmwares has never done that before. Will there be a fix on the next update?


+ hrfuknstuf on January 19th, 2013 at 11:13 am said:

Great interview with Ron Gilbert; Aram sounded a little starstruck! :) Sounds like the cave’s gonna be a lot of fun; light platforming included in an adventure game sounds like the perfect match. Keep up the good work!


+ sciteach on January 19th, 2013 at 12:17 pm said:

first time to listen to the podcast. I want to hear it on my vita. is there any way this could be downloaded by the store someday? seems like an additional step to get it to my PC, then transfer. I know, first world problems, right?


+ Kchow23 on January 19th, 2013 at 12:20 pm said:

Minor feedback but these mashup of two game titles for the blogcast are a bit cheesy if not uninspired. Overall a very good episode this week! I think Jabbari might’ve been the missing piece to the blogcast puzzle… keep it up :)


+ BlueBl1zzard on January 19th, 2013 at 1:07 pm said:


If you come to this page using your Vita’s internet browser and click the link ——> “Download the MP3 here on PS3, PS Vita or PC (Right-Click->Save As”) at the top of this page, you can save this directly to your vita and listen to it, no PC required :)


+ Ryumoau on January 19th, 2013 at 2:52 pm said:

Glad to hear Ni No Kuni will be a day 1 digital game. Wish it had a Plus discount. That would make up for the lack of rpgs offered by plus.

The Cave also sounds interesting.


+ Ryumoau on January 19th, 2013 at 2:54 pm said:

@3 i’d like an HD remake of Dark Cloud 2. Don’t waste time remaking the first game though, since it was pretty lame. I didn’t like the graphics or story.


+ sciteach on January 19th, 2013 at 4:10 pm said:

@bluebl1zzard thanks! great tip for me. i’m new to the vita land.


+ DonkeyKongKilla on January 19th, 2013 at 5:07 pm said:

Hooplah!!! haaha… funny… did not make it all through bc honestly, the guest had so much information on his creations but he couldn’t sound anymore unenthusiastic… Great info being said in this post, I will be sending in something via e-mail about the PS blog in general to see your views on it and to see what people have to see, if it’s a good idea or vito it.


+ aplay-may-cry on January 19th, 2013 at 6:50 pm said:

I played DmC and Beat it Twice That’s not a Devil may cry game not saying I don’t like this game. It’s Heavenly sword with gun.


+ purse317 on January 19th, 2013 at 10:22 pm said:

3 things guys

First DmC was and is awesome buy it

Second why isn’t it being yelled from the rooftops we can use paypal to add to our psn accounts now (sadly not from a ps3 directly but indirectly online at least)

Third if this sale mentioned in the blogcast is as awesome as you say take note of how plus members spend their money on good games on sale.


+ Undrey on January 20th, 2013 at 6:18 am said:

How did you NOT suggest Need for Speed Most Wanted for the guy who wanted Vita games? His favourite game is Burnout, also made by Criterion.

Yeah, just listened to it, fell asleep yesterday.


+ GranpireV on January 21st, 2013 at 1:51 pm said:

Darn it, that mystery theme was Jeanne D’Arc! I knew it was a PSP RPG, why couldn’t I get that!? :P


+ GOONJA on January 22nd, 2013 at 7:08 am said:
