Henceforth know as Neko?
Intrigued by Neko. Just by the title alone.
Pleased to see the positive review for Switch Galaxy on EG; really must give that a go.

Switch Galaxy is pretty good and worth the 8/10 EG gave it.
It starts slowly, but about half way through you're acting more on instinct
Two more games on PSM this week. Pocket Farm looks like another classic iOS/Android > PSM game. K-POP ni koi shite is a visual novel that is entirely in Japanese...
Pocket Farm - £0.79
K-POP ni koi shite - £2.39
Switch Galaxy is excellent.
Out of Mind seems decent too. Worth the asking price.

Never realised Lemmings was free, well the first batch of levels anyway. The fast forward mechanic is neat.

I'm on Lv29.
Switch Galaxy I am enjoying more than wipeout!
Here's a shock. 7 new games on PSM this week (and 1 app). Running late today so I haven't got time to go through them all. Quick summary below. At least try Penguin Party, seeing as it's free . 16bit Trader and RushCat also seem relatively interesting...
brg - £3.19
Kung Fu FIGHT! - £1.19
Luminis - £1.39
RushCat - £0.79
Visualize - £0.99
16bit Trader - £1.19
Penguin Party - FREE
Multi Counter - £1.39
Wow, what a surprise! 16bit trader sounds interesting going on name alone, may have to buy some credit tonight.
Just so everyone knows, the reason why there was such a long period between release weeks was because PSM Runtime version 1.11 was delayed - and obviously some of the games released today relied on it.
Anyway, here are some brief descriptions...
brg - Break Out in a sphere
Kung Fu FIGHT - Looks like an endless runner with fighting
Luminis - No idea. It's a puzzle game
RushCat - Platforming using the ground as a trampoline
Penguin Party - That game where you direct things with arrows
Visualize - A puzzle game (literally)
16bit Trader - An RPG? I think?
Multi Counter - You know those people counting passengers with a stopwatch thing? Yeah...

Some of the platformers initially look interesting before you realise they are endless runner junk. Kung Fu FIGHT particularly looked like it could be a very good game until I realised it was not level based.
I thought 16bit trader would be like the Neo Geo Pocket game where you have to collect all the Neo Geo AES cartridges - was hoping for a trading game built around buying lots of old games, selling them on, trying to obtain rare cartridges etc. Or a trading game that just looked slightly better to give me the confidence to buy.
Is there anywhere that's reviewing these games? Reviews would really help as I am so cautious with buying them as it's pot luck at the moment so I just go without unless something looks genuinely exciting.
The FPS on PSMobile is the most fun FPS on Vita - there have been several great games on the service.
Another blank week last week is followed up by another bumper week this week with 5 new games and 1 new app. Apocalypse Defense looks like a paper crafted version of tower defence. Then we have iFishing Saltwater for the fishing fans. Nunnageddon is an arcade shooter with err nuns.
Then we have a strategy game in rymdkapsel which has picked up press from it's very low key marketing (better than none obviously). Finally, there's Vita Bounce, which is a very weird looking game with the weirdest soundtrack...
Oh, and there's Sola Radio, an online music player - though I don't know what kind of music is on there...
Sola Radio - £0.79
Apocalypse Defense - £2.99
iFishing Saltwater - £2.99
Nunnageddon - £1.19
rymdkapsel - £3.99
VitaBounce - £0.79

rymdkapsel looks pretty interesting. Quite pricey though...

Anyone bought rymdkapsel yet ?
Eurogamer previewed Rymdkapsel before Christmas and said it seems really good.
I've got £5 left on my account as well... Hopefully a review will come out today as it's a bit too much to jump in on a preview alone.

While Rymdkapsel's minimalist approach makes for gorgeous visuals and a unique approach to gameplay, it can lead to some frustration in your first playthrough.
It isn't hugely obviously how certain elements of the gameplay work, for example, and so you'll end up dying due to factors that you'll feel were beyond your control.
Most notably, it's actually possible to get irretrievably stuck in Rymdkapsel after running out of a certain resource. I learnt this the hard way, and it would have been nice if this potential sticking point had been signposted.
The game is also extremely slow to get going. This is great when you're playing it for the first time, but on subsequent playthroughs it can make for a rather boring initial 20 minutes or so.
Even so, Rymdkapsel is gloriously entertaining, and a novel take on the RTS genre. Whether you like your strategy games or not, you should grab this one.
Interesting. Anyone picked it up yet?
Three new games and one app line the mobile store this week. Tileogo looks like a game I've seen released on here before (if it is, do tell me ). Reversi Multiboard is a new version of the classic Reversi board game where you try to capture your opponents pieces by surrounding them in a straight line.
Flight of the Turtle is a cutesy little game where you fly through the levels as a turtle and collect stars. The app this week is Merum, which can be used to write memos for yourself...
Merum - £1.19
Tileogo - £1.59
Reversi Multiboard - £3.19
Flight of the Turtle - £1.59
I'd be interested to know the sales for PSM titles - they get released with virtually zero fanfare or marketking, they're only available in a few European regions, and they're hidden away from the rest of the store.
It's a real shame, as I'm sure some of them are pretty decent.
Some are very good. Rock Boshers DX is an overlooked Spectrum style gem.
This is as good a thread as any....
Following from Digital Foundry's review of the new(ish) Xperia Z, I was considering it as an upgrade option from my iPhone 4s in the next few months. However, having seen one in the flesh today, I am amazed at how HUGE the thing is!
I know it'd be nice to have a decent sized screen, but it looks massively impractical for making/receiving phone calls.
One of the plus points for the Xperia Z was the ability to play PSMobile titles, but now I'm thinking that I stick with an Apple phone.
Anyone got the Z? Is it a decent phone?
Five new games this week on PSM. The Labyrinth is a classic maze game where you aim to get to the end of the level without falling into the holes. MegaBlast is an arcade style shooter. Saicoro-puzzle*KURA:ssic (what?!) is a classic puzzle game that apparently unlocks pictures as you go along (free to try out though).
Interestingly, 2 games from Sony this week as well. YU-NAMA: The Puzzle is a match three game starring everyone's favourite pixellated bad guy from the "What did I do to Deserve this my Lord?" series. Probably the most interesting game is Passing Time, which appears to be a football game where you can literally burn the competition. Honeyslug (developers of Frobisher Says) are behind the game.
The Labyrinth - £0.79
MegaBlast - £1.79
Saicoro-puzzle*KURA:ssic - FREE (first 2 stages)
YU-NAMA: The Puzzle - £2.39
Passing Time - £1.99
Wow, I'm surprised to see Sony releasing games on the service. They must actually realise any gaming service needs quality exclusives to succeed.
A few games out this week and another app.
First up is Slice Ninja, a "physics puzzle game" where you aim to clear the way to get your ninjas to the gate. Then there's Math Running, an educational running game with maths. King Bean is a puzzle game from Thomas Hopper. Blue Skies is a top-down helicopter shooter. Ascent of Kings looks like a classic platforming game with pixel art.
Finally, there's MapCache Offline Maps - which is a map that isn't Google Maps...
Slice Ninja - £2.39
Math Running - £3.39
King Bean - £0.99
Blue Skies - £2.39
Ascent of Kings - £0.79
MapCache Offline Maps - £1.59
Ascent of Kings? Nice. Have that on Android but the virtual controls are terrible. It's a Metroidvania style game and well worth a pop for 79p, especially with the promise of real physical controls
Thanks for the recommendation Murbs, I'll grab the game later. I think PSMobile is a great service personally, there's been so many good games.
Has anyone else bought Gun Commando or Rock Boshers DX yet?
Looks reasonably fun and worth 79p
