You guys rock! We would love to have you all on Radio PlayStation sometime soon!

My PS4 feature I don’t think everyone knows, is that you can play any PS4 game via remote play on your vita, not just the single player the WHOLE GAME like COD or BF4 multiplayer with little to no lag. Very cool

Please interview these guys for the PlayStation blockage please:
1:) Martin Jonasson of rymdkapsel
2:) aaron webber associate brand manager, Sega of America
3:) terraria and mine craft creators.

PS: I’m still very upset terraria was not release on vita this week

Hey guys – having fun online playing KZ SF and just picked up a Vita. Fun to play Knack co-op with my son, or to play while sitting downstairs doing something else. AMAZING feature.

My tip would be to download the Trine2 demo immediately as it looks INCREDIBLE. I want to hook the PS4 up to my 3D TV. Folks on GAF are raving about it. Can’t wait to try it in 3D!!

LOVING the experience, enjoying the podcast despite my earlier comments, Sid you still talk a lot but I love ya man. Would love to toss grenades at you guys in KZ SF if you’re ever online. I’m the one getting his head handed to him.

My question(s):
Can I cut and paste text on the Vita? Can’t figure out how to do it. Anyone? Bueller?
The DS4 desperately needs a chatpad. Sending text messages via the keyboard now is slightly clunky.


+ ColonelOCorn on December 5th, 2013 at 5:11 pm said:

The chatpad sentence is missing the obligatory: “Any plans for one?” Sorry.

Why didn’t Nick try remote play while his TV was dead?


+ UndreyVITA on December 5th, 2013 at 6:00 pm said:

Well, I commented that before you mentioned it :P


+ snakeeyes211 on December 5th, 2013 at 6:49 pm said:

Congratulations on the 100th blogcast :-)


+ UndreyVITA on December 5th, 2013 at 6:54 pm said:

That voice mail was suspicously high quality… Oh well, he might have a great phone :P

Dat anonymous voice mail!

Congrats on 100 episodes guys! I think you may have found the ‘classic’ cast with the team you have now, like a rock band that made their best hits with a certain lineup. Keep it up!

    Yeah, I wonder who that was?


+ rabidninjamonky on December 5th, 2013 at 7:04 pm said:

You guys from dat dere blogcast should do an all vita show soon. The vita is finally getting some good games lately with Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate, Tearaway and my personal favorite Ys Memories of Celceta. It’s an amazing game, and I think it hasn’t been given enough attention. Most of the other videogame sites don’t even acknowledge the vita anymore. I would also like some status updates on some of these vita games that were supposed to be released months ago like Bit Trip Runner 2, Shoot Many Robots. Terraria, Dead Nation and God of War collection.

I thought Jeff was gonna be here for the 100th episode!!!!

That’s what you guys said in “Sports Friends Forever” which was around episode 50 I think?


+ Pabloo1010 on December 5th, 2013 at 8:01 pm said:

@13 Listen to the voicemails carefully :)


+ G-Force08 on December 5th, 2013 at 8:09 pm said:

Another great episode. I’m going to call in for next week’s show. ;)


+ natep_87 on December 5th, 2013 at 8:36 pm said:

    Ryan’s dulcet tones have definitely bumped us up from “pretty good” to “pretty darn good!”

Good show! Always wish they were several hours long.

Dat Resogun!

I know it sounds perv but actually it “looks” better.. we can actually “see” the games, trailers, gameplays and more

My tips for Resogun. Phobos is king for full-on assault. Obliterates bosses, most powerful main shot, Overcharge fills up the fastest and lasts longer once activated, and standard fire has a nice little shotgun effect once you level it up a few times, allowing you to get enemies just above and below you.
Nemesis was my ship of choice for getting the 15x multiplier, as the homing shot makes it really easy to keep your combo going. Also used Nemesis for running through Experienced without losing all my lives.
I used Phobos again for beating the first level on Master. Dem Revenge Bullets, ugh… the trophy name for that is also one of the best ever, I have to say.
I used Ferox for the most part when I first started playing (on Veteran, no less), but I ended up finishing with Phobos, and never went back to Ferox. While it’s somewhat balanced between overcharge and boost abilities, the completely horizontal firing pattern with no pizzazz, even at max weapon level, is a deal breaker for me when compared to either Phobos or Nemesis.

    + Justin Massongill on December 6th, 2013 at 10:50 am said:

    Pretty much my thoughts exactly regarding the ships! I really feel like Housemarque totally nailed the balance between the three — there isn’t a “best” ship; they’re all truly balanced.


+ AizawaYuuichi on December 6th, 2013 at 3:52 am said:

Also, congrats on episode 100! Been listening only since episode 88, but I’m “really~ really~” enjoying it. :D

As many others have said, you’ve got a great group right now, you all just sound off of each other so well. It’s great to listen to. Keep up the awesome job guys. Looking forward to 200! And to the proper 100(redux) episode next week.

PS> I’d love to rate the blogcast and give it a review, but I refuse to use iTunes. I do, however, use Sony’s own Media Go to subscribe and download the show. Just throwing that out there for anyone else who is not a fan of Apple products. THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE! Haha.

Congrats on 100! I like the Media Player.. Fancy stuff.
Having fun with all things Sony.– Even my Bravia.


+ ItsNymo on December 6th, 2013 at 11:26 am said:

Congrats on the 100 blogcasts, guys! Always love tuning into each of them!

and boy, Dat anonymous caller. Sure sounds familiar :P

And by the way: I bet you guys get this sometimes, but have you considered getting Dormilón to change/update the theme song? It’s a fantastic theme song, but it’s been the same song for these past 100 episodes, and the Vita & PS4 have come out during that time. I’d personally love to hear a new theme song for the next 100 episodes that reflect PlayStation’s latest offerings w/ PS4 & Vita sound effects, but that’s just me!

Keep up the great show, guys! Here’s to many more episodes! :D


+ TeamGreen615 on December 6th, 2013 at 12:17 pm said:

I haven’t listened yet but I hope you talked about Ys Memories of Celceta. XSEED did a fantastic job with it!

It’s alright to mention Derrick Rose by name! Interestingly enough, Portland fans know your pain since they lost both Brandon Roy and Greg Oden to injuries.


+ rabidninjamonky on December 6th, 2013 at 3:45 pm said:

I just wanted to let people know that Amazon has several first party vita games on sale for $9.99. I bought Resistance Burning Skies, Sly TiT and Gravity Rush. I already owned the digital versions of Gravity Rush and Sly, but I like the cases and It will free up 5 gigs on my memory card! Unit 13 is also $9.99 btw.

@32 Thanks Mate! Just bought Lumines for $12.15 and Gravity Rush for $9.99. :)
