Oh January! The month that video games seem to avoid like the plague. You and December just can’t catch a break.
After the last two weeks worth of violent, gory games, we get a little break of whimsy as presented by Studio Ghibli. Just make sure you’ve got your insulin shots ready.
The start of this year sure makes video games sound awfully violent doesn’t it? Last week we have the über violent Anarchy Reigns, and this week we’ve got this series reboot.
Tired of having to turn on your PS3 to check out the PlayStation Store? Or are you just plain ol’ sick of the interface for it? Either way, Sony has something for you. During the CES, Sony unveils their plan to launch a web version of the PlayStation Store this month. From here users will be able to browse the store and buy content for their PS3. The next time the user turns on their PS3, their content will be waiting in the download list.
As inevitable as the rolling tides and the passing of a monarch, Sony has ended all production of the PS2, so that its progenitors may thrive.
Missed me? Well let’s pretend you do because I totally missed you guys! The last half of December had absolutely nothing coming out hence my absence.

Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed 3 will receive yet another massive update fixing various bugs and glitches to single player and multiplayer.
Remember when women were like children? As in they should be seen but not heard from? No? Yeah, me neither, but as it turns out some of us do. The upcoming PlayStation 3 game The Last of Us revolves around Joel and Ellie trying to survive in a post apocalyptic world, and In an interview with VG247, The Last of Us‘s creative director, Neil Druckmann, has had “discussions where we’ve been asked to push Ellie to the back.” His response, along with everyone at Naughty Dog, they “flat-out refused.”
I love the lull of December. How there isn’t that many games to write about. How it gives me time to play catch up, however futile that attempt might be. That said, this December has been the weirdest one to date. This is the second week now that something of note is actually coming out, depending on how you want to look at it that is.
