TinyCast 24! We spent some time here discussing Level’s 5 eShop surprises and Nintendo’s free-to-play experiments, but we also go in-depth on the uncertain future of Zero Escape, and why you need to play Danganronpa. There’s also a great discussion in the second half on how the teams behind these two visual novel series riffed off each other when designing their respective titles. If you love the Zero Escape series, don’t miss this episode!

Danganronpa's tributes to Zero Escape ⊟

I’m sure I’ve said it a bunch of times already, but if you liked the Zero Escape series, definitely try Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc for PS Vita.

We talked a lot about how the two Spike Chunsoft teams that worked on these two separate series riffed off each other in the latest TinyCast episode — that’s available to download now for Club Tiny’s Elite patrons. The public download/stream for that episode goes up tomorrow morning.

Credit to 037saya, Phioris, and Mary for posting these Danganronpa and trophy screenshots. And sorry about the initial unedited spoiler image. :o(

Virtue’s Last Reward finally on the 3DS eShop ⊟

I don’t know why this took so long — I believe it had a day-one PSN release for PS Vita — but you can now buy the second entry from Chunsoft’s Zero Escape series on the eShop. It’s available with nice discount, priced at $24.99 (until September 3) instead of the $39.99 it’s going for at retail.

More details on today’s handheld download releases, including the 100th 3DS Virtual Console release in North America, over on this page!

I’ve no idea where this rad GIF came from (maybe Omocat?), so drop in a comment if you know its origins!

Sigma has some words for those of you who are eligible to vote but aren’t voting today. I swear, Virtue’s Last Reward is the gift that keeps on giving for people who run game blogs on Tumblr and like to post screenshots.

There’s not much in the way of virtue in Virtue’s Last Reward. Aksys really took advantage of the “M for Mature” rating here to give us a really immature 3DS/PS Vita game! Also, Sigma is a total perv.

Virtue’s Last Reward doesn’t care about your feelings. The game sees your sad attempts to solve its puzzles, and is like “IDGAF,” and tells you what it really thinks.
I’ve been posting a lot more screenshots and photos from games, just because I’ve been really into sharing the “tiny” moments that make a particular game fun.
It’s so easy to post all the promotional media for an upcoming release, then forget about the game once it’s in stores. I would like to get away from that, and spend more time looking at the different moments people are enjoying in the games they’re currently playing. So I hope you don’t mind us putting up these silly screenshots more often.
