Retro Waterproof Case for PS Vita ⊟
Hey, this makes your Vita look like a Game Boy! It also makes it… waterproof…
It’s $13.99 from Play-Asia, if you want to play some Spelunky in a nice bath and oh man I was joking but actually that sounds really great.
Dragon’s Crown for $20 ⊟
The Vita version of Dragon’s Crown is on sale at Amazon for $19.99. I loved Dragon’s Crown when it came out, and frequent tweaks, patches and updates have only made it better since then! There’s an endless tower thing now! Via @wario64.

Magical Beat on North American Vita this week ⊟
Arc System Works’ Magical Beat is a color-matching falling-block puzzle game – that asks you to drop blocks to the beat of the background music.
I played a demo of this on Japanese PSN, hoping I’d be able to get it on my US account – and it’ll be here Tuesday! And so will the demo, which is good because I don’t know if I explained it very well.
La-Mulana Vita trailer ⊟
Oh man, I forgot this was happening! I still haven’t played La-Mulana, and I still really want to. According to this PS Blog post, it’s coming out in December!
E3 first look: Akiba’s Trip’s male “strip portraits” ⊟
It’s like a Vita that you plug into your TV, to play (some) Vita games, PlayStation Now streaming, and PS4 Remote Play (from another TV)! Weird! The base model is $100, and there’s also a Dualshock 3/Lego Movie game/HDMI cable bundle for $140 that I don’t see on Amazon yet.
The US model is black, unlike the white JP version.

PS Vita TV launching in North America this fall ⊟
Called “PS TV” here, will work with the streaming service PlayStation Now. $99. $139 for a bundle with an 8gb card, a DualShock 3, an HDMI cable, and a copy of The Lego Movie Game.
Hyperdimension Neptunia PP’s meta-metaphor ⊟
The Hyperdimension Neptunia series is already based on a metaphor… sort of. It personifies consoles – and hardware and software companies – as teenage girls, each in control of a section of the land of “Gamindustri” and fighting for “shares” of the people’s attention. They represent games, but they also acknowledge the existence of games, and play games, hence the “sort of.”
Hyperdimension Neptunia Producing Perfection for PS Vita takes this a step further, adding a strange and even more self-referential layer to the story. I’m not entirely sure how intentional it was.
Hohokum on Vita August 12 ⊟
And PS3 and PS4. I’ve been looking forward to this one! I played a bit of Hohokum on Vita last year, and it was absolutely gorgeous. It feels really chill to fly around as a snakey kite string thing or whatever. Even though I had no idea what I was doing or what I was supposed to be doing, I still enjoyed it!
I imagine I’ll enjoy it a lot more with some context.
Tiny Roundup: Vita Slim accessories ⊟
I went looking for accessories for the new slim PS Vita, and surprisingly there aren’t that many. I mean, there are a million variations on the silicone/plastic shell, but those don’t seem that interesting or useful to me.
Of the relatively short list of remaining options, I’m highlighting the ones that seem most useful. I haven’t tried any of these!
Mighty No. 9 is coming along nicely ⊟
Here’s some new WIP footage of Comcept’s Megalike, now with a spring 2015 release window. I’m digging that combo display.
BUY Mega Man, MM25, upcoming games
Terraria, Mutant Mudds free on US PS+ in June, Dragon’s Crown in EU ⊟
PlayStation Plus is changing its format a bit, launching all of its monthly free games at the beginning of the month, leaving them up for the whole month, and restricting them to two per platform. Basically, two new PS+ games a month on PS3, PS4, and Vita.
So! Upcoming + games for June are Terraria and Mutant Mudds Deluxe! I hear Terraria is cool, and I know Mudds is. If you have a subscription, you should absolutely download them! Also, you should download everything else ever, or at least “purchase” it, because why not.
Meanwhile, Europe gets Dragon’s Crown and Surge Deluxe. Dannggggggg. Get on that Dragon’s Crown.
