The PlayStation Recap: What We’re Reading

Justin Massongill's Avatar Posted by on Mar 17, 2013 // Social Media Manager, SIEA

This week, Aaron Kaufman of God of War Community fame stopped by to give us a rundown of all the community happenings in God of War: Ascension, PlayStation Mobile got an evolutionary new entry in its stable with Forevolution, The Pinball Arcade is getting some new tables (and it’s coming to PS4), GungHo brought a bundle of new Japanese PSone imports to our shores, Machinarium got formally announced for a PS Vita release later this month, and more.

I’m gonna be late to the party guy here: I finally finished Ni no Kuni! The story gets really good near the end; if you started this and haven’t wrapped it up yet, don’t stop. It’s worth it. I’m gunning for a Platinum, but I’m not sure I’m gonna make it — I’ve come so far! I’m taking Runner2 breaks every now and then, because man cannot live on JRPGs alone. Kudos to the guys at Gaijin Games, this is their best one yet.

What are you playing this weekend?

    A lot of reviews for Ascension were posted prior to the game’s release, so don’t qualify for this week’s recap; I linked one in last week’s update!

    Have you played it yet? What do you think?

I’d be listening to the Blogcast but it hasn’t been posted. What’s with that?

    I agree! I’m watching it for the first time, and I’m realizing why people call it the best sitcom of all time.

Justin: I just Platinumed Ni no Kuni. Took me 98 hours, give or take. Let me know how many hours you clock for that gem.

Good luck!

Hoping PS Plus will bring better Vita games to the IGC instead of the generic strategy/shooter/fighter games. WE NEEDAN RPG!!!!!!

    I just hit 90 hours myself, and the main ones I have left to do are the alchemy and familiar-taming ones. I expect they’ll take a while. Guessing I’ll be 100 hours + by the end of it all.

    We’ve got Disgaea 3 coming to Vita this month for Plus — that’s a pretty good entry RPG-wise, no? Check the March update for more details.
