    Well, I feel like a moron. I don’t know why I didn’t notice. I’m blaming it on the heat.

    It’s a dumb pun that makes very little sense even knowing what it’s based on. Say the game’s name loud and clear, don’t purposely try to confuse anyone, especially a mere few days before the game launches. Do you mean to tell me if you had an interview with Jason Shart about Uncharted 4 that you would call your article Unsharted 4? I think not.

Haven’t heard the podcast yet, but as someone who needs to be at work every day, I’ve found waking up early to play games has been a pretty good way to go too!

Have ever thought of also adding video to the blogcast?

Shu!!! Sounds like it’ll be a great episode. Listening now… :-)

    … and it was! Well done, guys! Yes, the way the slugcat moves in Rainworld looks AMAZING. Glad I’m not the only one going into media blackout mode for The Last Guardian, and definitely The Witness gave me many of my favorite gaming moments in recent recollection :-)

So what happened to Shuhei Yoshida Let’s play ??? C’mon! Let’s make it happen

Guys, if you make people be excited about Adrift, don’t sour the occasion by allowing them to accidentally buy an ‘Adrift’ movie on the Playstation Store by accident. I was looking to be an astronaut adrift, not a girl in a bikini.

That Intro was the best! Another great show guys. I really want to know what the mystery title was that you couldn’t name yet.

    I am so excited for I Am Setshuna.

Ryan, maybe you can pitch an insider vote for FF7:Dirge of Cerberus to come to the PS2toPS4 lineup soon…

Lovely lovely episode gentleman. I love the punny title. Mr. Yoshida-San is always a treat.

I can’t wait for PlayStation VR. I got the Samsung Gear VR to get myself more used to VR in preparation.

I know this is a Playstation blogcast but man do I love me some Pokemon go. It really deserves the attention. As someone who suffers from crippling social anxiety I can safely say that this game has done wonders for that. It’s also gotten me out of the house more and exercising. I’ve heard stories of it bringing families closer together and a lot of our local businesses are embracing it and hosting Pokemon events. The other day I went on a 3 hour walk just looking for Pokemon and hitting stopstops. I dropped a lure at a gazebo at a local park and like 4 people came out from the real estate office across the street during their lunch break to catch Pokemon with me. This has been a pretty great experience for everyone. It’s been great for the players great for Nintendo and great for society in general. Granted some people are abusing it but overall it seems to do more good than harm and it’s changed my life tremendously.

If it’s not too much to ask I would like to hear more personal accounts of Justin’s Pokemon Journeys.

15 seconds in, and I was already cracking up. Great podcast.

I’m really bummed out the VIta version of Setsuna isn’t being released in English. I’m even more bummed that there won’t be a physical version of the one we are getting. Digital only makes it really hard for me to justify a $40 purchase. I hate to be whiny, but this was a game I was really looking forward to.

    It seems as if Square wasn’t happy with the reception of the game in JP nor were they impressed with the sales there too so they are just kind of limping it out over the border into the US without much of a care. What else can we think? Nothing says you have no confidence in your game like giving it no physical version right?

I don’t blame anyone on the PSBlog team; I wouldn’t have said anything about this weekend’s flash sale, either.

Shuuuuu!!! Great blogcast, guys! It´s always great listening to SHu.

PS: I´m so excited to play I am Setsuna, though a bit heartbroken it might not come to Vita.
