50: Milestone Madness!, Farewell PSP & Handheld E3 Predictions

Feeling fifty, Bundles, E3 and Copyright law!



As it was our 50th Birthday, why not give the podcast a watch on YouTube as well as a standard listen?  There’s even special extra content (not just Colin picking his nose)


  • Vita Pets is out in America to surprisingly high reviews!
  • Borderlands 2 on Vita – Colin’s got a mini-review!
  • Media Molecule supposedly not going to E3
  • What is going on with the Nvidia Shield?


  • Delta Emerald has been trademarked by Nintendo – but what could it mean for the future of Pokemon?
  • Two very cool PSN sales: one in the US, one in EU
  • Another Harvest Moon like game is coming to 3DS – which means we have a Harvest Moon game that isn’t a Harvest Moon game and a non-Harvest Moon game which basically is a Harvest Moon game.  Colin couldn’t wrap his head around the legal / trademarky issues regarding the names, so here’s a super cool summary from Reddit user Taedirk
  • The PSP is being discontinued – however don’t cry too much because Kotaku are reporting that there’ll be two new PS Vita colour schemes , as well as reports coming in of a special Vita tradein discount scheme in Japan
  • A New 2DS bundle 

  • As well as a REALLY COOL Starfox reference in Steel Diver  

  • Has a PS4 and Vita bundle been spilled by Amazon France? (Screencap from IGNamazon
  • The PS Vita Action Mega pack, talked about last week, is coming to Vita’s in Europe at the end of June!
  • 1001 Spikes – Nicalis (developer) did a really interesting and revealing interview with Polygon, all about how releases work (specifically for 3DS) – give it a read here! The game comes out this week.
  • Sonic Boom: as well as confirmation of a new character (a jungle badger called Sticks) there is also more news on how the two Sonic Boom games will be released later this year. The 3DS version is called Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal, and you can watch some gameplay thanks to TheRealSonicFan on YouTube 
  • A pinball game for The Walking Dead – looks super cool! 



We decided to make some predictions for E3 this year: with an ice cream going to the winner!

Chris’ Predictions:

1)a new 3D Super Mario Platformer for 3DS

2) Advance Wars for a whole 90 minutes – with all sorts of updates to the gameplay (this slot could also be the long fabeld Metroid / Starfox game but I’m not confident enough to bet on it)

3) The lights dim…the music twinkles…and up comes a logo for MAJORA’S MASK 3DS

Colin’s Predictions:

1)Wolf Among Us will come to Vita in the next two months (once episode 5 is out on the home consoles)

2)  Don’t Starve will come to Vita and we will get a release date

3) A Mass Effect 4 Vita companion app (curveball…)
