The Best Game on the PS Vita Is a PC Port

The Best Game on the PS Vita Is a PC Port

Though Sony pretty much gave up on the PS Vita, there are some developers out there who refuse to quit and are pumping out some pretty sweet titles.

Sony may have given up on the PS Vita — its follow up to the popular PlayStation Portable (PSP) – but that hasn’t stopped a cottage industry of developers from shipping their wares for the handheld. From stealth titles like Volume, to visual novels such as Steins;Gate, smaller games that wouldn’t have had much of a chance on the bigger and more dominant platforms have thrived on the PS Vita.

Which is why it’s odd that the greatest game on the console is a PC port. VA-11 HALL-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action released on Windows PC and macOS via Steam in 2016. It’s now available on the PS Store for PS Vita. The handheld is home to many a visual novel thanks to a form factor that fits well in your hands and the bright screen lends itself well for reading large amounts of text. You also get a myriad of control options ranging from buttons, a touchpad, and the touchscreen itself. It’s why VA-11 HALL-A making it to the portable console is a logical move.

Rumour: Retro Studios Is Working On A Secret Star Fox: Grand Prix Title For Switch

Rumour: Retro Studios Is Working On A Secret Star Fox: Grand Prix Title For Switch

Is Retro Studios working on a secret Star Fox game for Switch?! If the rumors are true, there are going to be a lot of fans lining up to get a copy of this game.

When it was revealed developer Retro Studios wasn’t working on Metroid Prime 4 (it had, after all, made the previous three) we were left wondering what the Texas-based outfit would do next – apart from handling the Switch port of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, that is. Well, one hot rumour suggests it’s been secretly tinkering away on a new Star Fox title, but with a twist you definitely aren’t expecting.

The rumour – which was posted by Reddit user DasVergeben on the Star Fox subreddit – says the dev is building a spin-off more akin to F-Zero than a traditional Star Fox title – one purportedly called Star Fox: Grand Prix. Here’s the full post below:

“What Retro Studios is working on is a spinoff based on an existing Nintendo IP that they haven’t worked with before…. Star Fox.

Steam Link app hopes to blow your mind with mobile game streaming

Steam Link app hopes to blow your mind with mobile game streaming

Mobile game streaming is making huge strides and starting in May, Steam intends to realease two apps designed to stream games and videos from your library to your iOS and Android devices.

After a long lull, this is turning out to be a big year for cloud gaming. Nvidia’s GeForce Now is still in beta but going strong, and now Valve is extending Steam’s in-home game-streaming capability to iOS and Android devices that connect to the same network as the host system.

The Steam Link app, which Valve plans to launch the week of May 21, will bring the ability to sling your game library to an Android phone, tablet or TV or an iPhone, iPad or Apple TV, as long as you’ve got a Steam host system connected to the same network as your device. Like many cloud solutions, Steam requires a 5GHz or Ethernet connection between the host and the router, as well as between the host (which can be Mac or PC) and the device.

Video game review: ‘Thin Silence’ more cerebral than visual

Video game review: ‘Thin Silence’ more cerebral than visual

Have you heard about ‘Thin Silence’? If not, you may soon as this game is picking up speed with gamers everywhere.

In the last decade, a number of indie developers have reinterpreted video game forms from the past to tell emotionally infused stories. Ben Follington and Ricky James’ “The Thin Silence” does this by mining the look of 1980s games to tell a strange, circuitous tale about a man’s search for purpose and self-forgiveness.

What their contemplative game lacks in visual pizzaz it makes up for in its humanistic writing, somber ambient soundtrack (by Lightfrequency) and solid, albeit conventional, gameplay. It pitches itself at your mind more than your eyes.
