Mana Khemia: Student Alliance Takes Extra Credit PSN Download Class

By Spencer . June 25, 2009 . 11:16am

Loading times ruined Mana Khemia: Student Alliance for me. Even with the jumpstart feature the game chugged along. Perhaps, Mana Khemia would work better if it was saved on a memory stick.

By Spencer . June 22, 2009 . 10:33pm

The quirky number matching puzzle game Qruton is going international. Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong announced Qruton will come out on PSN this week under the name Numblast.   Whether you know it as Qruton or Numblast it’s a difficult game to explain in screenshots.

Hong Kong is privy to strong marketing pushes from Microsoft. Earlier this year Hong Kong’s Xbox division gave away gold Xbox 360s. Their latest push? An Xbox 360 truck carrying LCD TVs hooked up with Xbox 360 games.

PlayStation Network Opens The Door For Downloadable PSP Imports

By Spencer . April 1, 2009 . 10:02am

Rei Cho Aniki, the latest horizontal shooter in the obscure Cho Aniki series, came out in Japan last month care of GungHo Games. I didn’t think this game would get an international release, but shockingly it just did. Even though many Japanese games come to Hong Kong with English inserts, Rei Cho Aniki was not […]

By Spencer . March 18, 2009 . 11:02am

We could see the trash stacking and compacting game, Gomibako, as part of this week’s PlayStation Store update under the name Trash Box.   Maybe.   It is getting an English release for sure, though! Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong will release the game on their PlayStation Store tomorrow and it’s fully translated into English. […]

Back in October we discovered Folklore developer Game Republic was branching out to downloadable board games starting with a PlayStation 3 version of Catan. Catan was originally announced for a worldwide release over PlayStation Network, but only Japan got it at the end of last year.   Today, an English version crept onto the PlayStation […]

The PixelJunk 3in1 Pack contains PixelJunk: Racers, PixelJunk: Monsters, and PixelJunk: Eden. All three games have an option for English and Japanese language.   What Sony forgot to mention is if the PixelJunk 3in1 Pack contains other downloadable […]

Just like we reported at the Asia Game Show, Demon’s Souls has been fully translated into English. While developing the Japanese version […]

Ninja Blade Ready In English, Just Not Here

By Spencer . February 12, 2009 . 2:50pm

Microsoft just published Ninja Blade all throughout Asia and it’s fully localized in a multitude of languages one of them, perhaps the most important one here, being English. The Asian release is region free too so there’s nothing to stop you from getting Ninja Blade if you can’t wait to slice and dice giant pillbugs. […]

It’s Like Taiko No Tatsujin With Your Head As The Drum

By Spencer . February 12, 2009 . 1:39pm

Hong Kong variety/game show Boom Boom Ba is all about music, not video games. A recent episode bucked the trend and dipped into game territory in a silly way.   One contestant would hit falling notes by hitting drums similar to Taiko no Tatsujin. The twist is the drums and other percussion instruments were strapped […]

Let’s Ride The Star Ocean Escalator

By Spencer . February 5, 2009 . 11:35pm

Star Ocean may not be Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy, but it is an established Square Enix franchise. Microsoft seems content about that and are giving Star Ocean: The Last Hope a big marketing push.   Causeway Bay is one of Hong Kong’s busiest and most crowded shopping districts. Before metro passengers hit the stores […]

By Spencer . January 23, 2009 . 3:03pm

Fitting somewhere in between a Game Boy Micro and a PSP is the Dingoo, a portable system only available in China. Similar to Sony’s handheld the Dingoo has an XMB interface where users can select entertainment functions like listening to music, reading eBooks or watching movies. You can even hook the Dingoo up to a […]

PS3 PixelJunk Games Getting Retail Release?

By Spencer . January 22, 2009 . 6:46am

According to a retail listing on Play-Asia yes! No details were announced for the PixelJunk 3in1 Pack, but it’s easy to imagine this release, if real, is PixelJunk Racers, Monsters, and Eden on a Blu-ray disc.   Sony used a similar strategy with their downloadble PSP games in Europe by releasing PlayStation Network Power Packs.

Somehow Strikers 1945 Plus Is Coming To The PSP

By Spencer . January 21, 2009 . 4:23am

The rumor about a PSP port of Strikers 1945 Plus was on the mark. Strikers 1945 Plus is in the PSP pipeline, but strangely it’s only announced for Asia. Perhaps, this is a Korean release trickling over.   I wouldn’t worry about a language barrier since Strikers 1945 Plus is a shooter, a rather obscure […]
