Tales of Hearts Moving To Vita

October 24, 2012 Leave a comment

Originally released on the DS, Tales of Hearts is looking to get remastered for the Playstation Vita system. Similar treatment as was done for Tales of Innocence R. The new Hearts title is said to be fully voiced, include new events, and have a new character named Calcedony Arcome. It’s slated for a Japanese release window of Spring 2013.

While no information is announced for western release, some are holding hope as recently Namco Bandai has expressed desires for people outside Japan to experience the older Tales titles. As well as their desire for Hearts itself to be localized. Although, it begs the question then. Where is Innocence R localization?

Ragnarok Odyssey Gets Release Date

October 10, 2012 Leave a comment


XSEED finally breaks the silence on their new titan hunting titled for the Playstation Vita. Ragnarok Odyssey will hit stores on the 30th of October. Along with this announcement, they have also updated their website

I’m pumped for this title as it’s one of my most anticipated titles of 2012. I played the Japanese demo and loved it immensely. See my detailed Game Watch Post on the game to learn more.

Only sad part in this announcement was their decision to go up against some blockbuster titles such as Need For Speed and Assassin’s Creed 3 for PS3/Vita. I hope it doesn’t effect their sales too much. It definitely has a must buy for me.

It’s not often that you come across a game that truly changes everything.  A game that you get lost in and experience something you want everyone to experience.  Xenogears was one of those games for me when I played it back at its release in 1998.  Squaresoft created an RPG that would combine a deep story, a unique graphical style, and a unique combat system.  Even to this day, I still get lost in it. Before I get too caught up, let me get into the review. Read more…

Final Fantasy 3 Disabled For Vita

September 27, 2012 Leave a comment

When a new Final Fantasy 3 with improved visuals and features was announced for PSP, I was very excited. Then when I discovered that it would see a release in the west, I was in shock. Unfortunately this joy, for myself, was short lived.

Final Fantasy 3 is a huge success for PSP users across the North American and European region. I’ve heard no issues with the purchase or use of this title. However anyone with a Vita seeking to game it on their new shiny device, it’s a different story. Read more…
