Big news this March is that Journey, the sand-and-scarf simulator by thatgamecompany, finally comes out on the 13th. There’s also good news for those of you who missed out on Radiant Historia for the DS (and don’t want to pay bullshit prices): Atlus is reprinting it in late march (exact date hasn’t been listed yet).
After looking at Double Fine’s kickstarter page for their new project, “Double Fine Adventure” this afternoon, all I can say is, holy crap. Their goal, $400k, was raised in 8 hours, and as of right now they have $978,000 (and still rising). Someone REALLY wanted to have lunch with Tim Schafer.
Now they just have to make the game. No pressure or anything.
But you’d have to have a cold charcoal heart not to be feel a little moved by this. One of those rare cases where the internet actually does right. Like a flower blooming in a big pile of shit.
How’s everyone’s February so far? The release calendar has been updated: sadly, the Grand Knights History NA release has been indefinitely postponed.
Just a quick note: Capcom’s upcoming and strangely expensive Resident Evil game for the 3DS has gotten an official price drop to $40 as of today. “Price Drop” as in what it should have been priced at in the first place. Thought I should mention this, since I was advising NOT to buy this a few days ago in the release calendar because of the price. The Capcom-Unity blog states that after “weeks of looking for a way to lower the cost” they were able to make this change, which is a little confusing and vague to say the least. Who knows the real reason (I would put my money on pressure from Nintendo to keep a solid price cap for all 3DS games), but maybe I should stop looking a gift zombie in the mouth and just shut up.

I was not expecting February to have this many releases. Not only is the Vita being dumped on an unsuspecting populace this month but it looks like solid titles are being released for almost every system.
Gimme a break. It's late and I didn't have any actual Cave games to get a snapshot of in MAME.
This is something I thought of several years ago, if the “date modified” on the adjacent text files is to be believed. In short, it’s a hypothetical shoot-em-up based on the story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, but with a clashing medieval/robotic motif so that there’s no need for all the projectiles to be arrows, rocks and crossbow bolts, and the characters would have something to ride into battle besides horses or mythical creatures.
Three updates to my release calendar: The Silent Hill HD collection has been delayed (again) to March 6th, and the download only horror/action game AMY now has a release date of Jan 17th on PSN and Xbox live. It will be priced at $10. 7 minutes of AMY footage here for the curious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cRpPl5HnPM&feature=g-u&context=G2901869FUAAAAAAAAAA . And, Fortune Summoners, another Japanese PC title localized by Carpe Fulgur, will be available on the 17th. Link to the demo here.
Holy shit, it’s new content on the blog. The year is almost over, and that means it’s time for the first annual Turnip Awards! The most prestigious honors that can be bestowed on anything videogame related, EVER. This should go without saying, but all opinions stated here are solely my own and don’t reflect any of VGZ’s owners, streamers, staff, etc.
The year starts off with Gotham City Impostors on the 10th and a few big releases at the end of the month. The Silent Hill HD Collection interests me; if being in HD is actually an improvement and the price isn’t ridiculous Konami has a sale. There were some shenanigans over the voice acting earlier in the year, and I believe the results were Silent Hill 2 having the same VAs as the original and SH3 having different ones.
On an unrelated to videogames note, the 5th collected volume of the excellent comic book series The Unwritten comes out on the 17th. It’s hard to describe the plot without spoiling the story, but basically it’s about the hidden worlds within fiction, how they shape reality, and a secret cabal that has been controlling the world for centuries with the power of stories.
