Another Gravity Rush figurine ⊟
Man, that game was so cool. And so is this figurine of Kat, by President Japan (!) It’s on J-List and Amiami, that I’ve seen so far, shipping in November. The colors are wayyyy less muted than the last figure.
The pose would be really awkward if it were meant to be standing; but Kat is almost always in some state of floating, which I didn’t actually put together as the reason for this pose for a good few seconds.

This amazing item (via Siliconera) will be released in September in Japan, for 9500 yen ($93). It’ll come in both a regular, game-accurate version and a winking “White Kat” version. She has ice cream in that configuration. Why not, I guess.
Hey, here’s my periodic reminder that if you have a Vita and you haven’t played Gravity Rush yet, that would be a good thing to do when you find the time. It’s in the PS Plus Instant Game Collection and everything.
Gravity Rush holiday card by Kyle Fewell ⊟
So happy to have an excuse to post some Gravity Rush/Kat art here. This is one of several holiday cards Attract Mode will be selling at the Bit Bazaar Winter Market, a “unique celebration of the art and craft of indie games, web comics, and good food,” going down at Toronto’s Bento Miso this Saturday. Why does everything awesome only happen in NYC, California, and Toronto?
More Gravity Rush teased ⊟
I don’t know if this is a sequel, or a spinoff, or, like, an anime, or a series of lenticular trading cards, but Japan Studio’s Team Gravity is teasing some kind of Gravity Rush thing and I’m READY.

Since it’s pretty much required by law that you need to have Gravity Rush if you own a PS Vita, why not just get the game for free when you buy the system? Amazon is running this deal for its WiFi and WiFi/3G models, and is throwing in a bonus screen protector for good measure.
There were some other things happening today that a) kept me too busy to update TC reliably and b) pushed this down the page on Joystiq, so in the interest of sharing some Vita coverage with you all before it disappears into obscurity, here is the review I wrote for Gravity Rush.
I’ve been playing Gravity Rush in every free moment for the last week or so; not just because I had to get the review done, but because it’s super fun. Here’s a small quote:
Since you spend so much time just traveling from thing to thing in games, especially open-world ones, I’m surprised more attention isn’t paid to making that fun. By putting so much joy in the navigation of the world, Gravity Rush shares space in my mind with standouts like Batman: Arkham City and Jet Set Radio.
That’s the biggest draw to this game: it’s just so delightful to fling yourself around using the ability to dynamically alter gravity, that it makes getting to a mission just as much fun as doing the mission.
It’s neat to have something to play on Vita again!
