Things are looking good for the SEGA MMO as PSO2 has received new content updates steadily. This latest update coming to Japan on November 7 adds the beautiful new Ruins area amongst others, as well as new bosses that you can check out in this trailer, courtesy of PlayStation Unity. This is really gets me excited and I still can’t wait for an exact U.S. release date.

Code of Princess is set in a medieval fantasy world full of monsters, magic and unoriginality. Having been attacked by said monsters, your kingdom is about to fall, so the king entrusts his almost naked daughter with a magic sword to destroy the evil. Along the way she makes allies, uncovers impractically convoluted plots, and hits up every other RPG trope in existence. But that’s the catch: You’re not playing an RPG, you’re playing a brawler steeped in RPG elements. [...]

This morning came word that Animal Crossing 3DS will not have paid downloadable content, as was previously rumored. But this has sparked some interesting debate over whether making the cute life simulation a free-to-play title is a perfect idea or completely wrong for the series. [...]

Fans of the Vita who have been holding off on buying one might have a reason to finally take the plunge this week, with the Assassin’s Creed III Liberation Bundle coming out. It’s the first time a game has been packaged right in with the system, hopefully making the price tag a bit easier to swallow. I’m also looking forward to Ragnarok Odyssey because I’m going to need something to help tide me over until Monster Hunter comes to one of these systems. [...]

This beautiful 3DS XL, emblazoned with a Charizard (one of them Pokémans, for the grown-ups reading this) isn’t the kind of thing you can just waltz into any old store and buy. This is the kind of thing that’s only available in Japan, and even then, you have to enter into a raffle between November 3rd and 26th to win the privileged to buy one for ¥18,900 (about $236). This is only available through one of Japan’s several Pokémon Center stores…of which I am also jealous of Japan for having.
I want this as my official Pokémon Black/White 2 device. What would you be willing to do to get your hands on one? Tell us in the comments!

Earlier this week I posted that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 5 would have full voice acting for all of the game’s dialogue. But we discovered today that Capcom community manager Brett Elston (@Brelston) tweeted the following correction:
“Saw some posts saying AA5 will have full voice acting – not the case. Just those iconic key phrases! Maybe a mistranslated interview?”
One can assume these key iconic phrases are “Objection!”, “Hold it!” and such. Meaning it’s the same as every other Phoenix Wright game since the original on DS. Kind of a let down if you ask me, but as I mentioned in my previous post, voice acting takes a long time to localize, so we should be able to get this game in the US that much sooner.
Are you relieved to hear this news, or do you share my ire? Let me know in the comments!

Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph will hit theaters one week from today, so I thought it would be the perfect time to review this free little title inspired by the movie. In case you are unfamiliar, Wreck-It Ralph is about a fictional ’80s arcade game called Fix-it Felix. The villain of which (Wreck-It Ralph himself) grows tired of being the bad guy and ventures off into other games to become a hero.
