Latest PlayStation Vita Updates

If you've played your fair share of shooters and action games, you've probably thought about how ridiculous gun mechanics are. In games like Borderlands and Destiny, you can shoot an enemy thousands of times before they feel the damage. In Call of Duty, the swing of a knife does more damage than a couple of shots to the chest. While it may seem like there are only a handful of games that follow a realistic understanding of how firearms work (the recent Wolfenstein games being a key example), the Uncharted series has taken a different path this whole time, and we were all clueless to its cleverness.

Back in March we reported that the UK made the decision to ban the release of a game for the first time in a decade. The game in question, Omega Labyrinth Z, had already been banned in Australia, Germany, New Zealand, and Ireland for its depiction of high school-aged girls in sexually explicit scenarios. As it turns out, it's unlikely that the West will get the game at all now.

Since their official announcement last year, many fans (especially myself) have been eagerly waiting for Atlus to make some sort of announcement regarding a Western release for the Persona 3 and Persona 5 dancing games. The games recently released in Japan, but Atlus USA remained quiet for a bit longer. But lucky for us, the silence didn't last too long. Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight are coming to the PS4 and PlayStation Vita in early 2019.

2018 is going to be an exciting year for fans of the Kingdom Hearts franchise because we're finally approaching the release of the grand finale to the current story arc, Kingdom Hearts III.

Regardless of the hype, Kingdom Hearts never has been and never will be a perfect franchise. It has a ton of flaws you should know about before getting into it. This is coming from somebody who has been a loyal fan since the original game's release 16 years ago. So if you're thinking about catching up on the Kingdom Hearts series, take all of these things into consideration first.

It's been three years since Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night debuted on Kickstarter. We've still got a bit to wait before we get our hands on this Castlevania spiritual successor, but developer Koji Igarashi is giving us something pretty sweet in the meantime.

I know what some of you are thinking. "Why would you ever listen to music when you can enjoy the lovely soundtracks video games have to offer?" That's a fair point, and I used to agree with that. But there's a certain point when I can't stand the constant "wahoo!" of Mario Kart or the boring ambient sounds of League of Legends. I need something fresh. I need something that gets me pumped.

With another month comes another collection of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers, and April's big ticket items on PlayStation 4 might appeal to those seeking high octane thrills. Mad Max sees players take on the role of the legendary Max Rockatansky, surviving in the post-apocalyptic Wasteland as he seeks to build the ultimate vehicle of mayhem and destruction called "The Magnum Opus." The game, released in 2015 following the critically acclaimed Fury Road film, features extensive vehicular combat and customization.

Off a similar tangent comes the other free game in the form of Trackmania Turbo, where you can race for the best time off impossibly designed tracks or build your own! See the two in action in the video after the jump.

It's not that often that the UK's Video Standards Council refuses a game a rating, effectively banning it in the country. In fact, prior to this week it hadn't happened since Manhunt 2 was refused classification back in 2007, over a decade ago. That streak was just broken by Omega Labyrinth Z, an RPG that features school girls in a variety of sexually explicit scenarios.

The popular Attack on Titan anime series received a video game adaptation courtesy of Koei Tecmo's Omega Force back in 2016. The action-packed, Titan-slaying adventure was met with somewhat mixed reviews, but it performed well enough that Koei Tecmo quickly announced a sequel. Attack on Titan 2 launches this month, and the early reviews have started to roll in from Japan, including an impressive score from Famitsu.

One of the downsides to the launch of a new console generation is that support for older consoles begins to get phased out. This process may ultimately take a while to fully play out, but it will inevitably happen. Now, almost four and a half years after the premiere of the PlayStation 4, Sony has decided to take another step in this direction by making a major change to its PlayStation Plus program starting next year.
