ESRB ratings are often the precursor to a re-release on Sony’s digital PlayStation Network, where you can buy a number of classic PS1 and PS2 games to be played on PS3, PSP, and Vita. Earlier this month, an ESRB rating for Persona 4 inadvertently revealed that Atlus would be re-releasing that classic PS2 game for PSN.
Suikoden II, released by Konami for the PlayStation back in 1999, is the second in the series and generally considered to be one of the greatest role-playing games ever made.
Though Konami released the first Suikodenon the PlayStation Network a few years ago, we’ve never seen Suikoden II, and the game’s rarity has led to some insane price spikes on eBay and the like. PlayingSuikoden II legally today can be quite the challenge, which is why fans have spent years begging Konami for a re-release. Looks like that day is finally here. Maybe. Hopefully.
We’ve reached out to Konami to see what’s up. More as we hear it.
Up to this point, I’ve always wondered why Konami hated money.
Shooting Gameside Vol. 2
Had a nice surprise from Japan waiting for me when I got home from work. Managed to get this for a relatively decent price given what $$ they’re fetching here.
I purchased this volume for the Gradius retrospective. I don’t think it will be my only one.
Kirby’s Block Ball (1995) for the Game Boy. Developed by HAL Laboratory. Published by Nintendo.
I LOVE these classic GameBoy Kirby games! Heck, I love all the Kirby games. I don’t know that Nintendo has ever created a more versatile, downright entertaining character, and each one of these games is just chock-full of addicting game play and good ‘ol fashioned heart.
There’s even an air-hockey bonus game!
Best $3.00 purchase since Kirby Pinball!
Shovel Knight (Yacht Club Games)
So close! And yes, this is probably just another excuse to stare at what may very well be one of the greatest video game animations in history.
Fire Emblem: Awakening?
So, I’ve probably got approx. 18,678 games I’d still like to play, but I’m seriously considering re-playing FE: Awakening alongside Bravely Default (which is awesome). That’s crazy talk given how much time I’ve already devoted to it, but there’s SO much content left for me to explore that I can’t help but go back.
That’s actually one of the greatest things about the games Intelligent Systems creates, — you could literally spend year(s) taking advantage of the content they offer. I put over 200+ hours into the FE: The Blazing Sword and FE: The Sacred Stones respectively, and it appears I’ll follow suit with Awakening in the near future. And then there’s Advance Wars!
Love Intelligent Systems!
Liberation Maiden (Nintendo 3DS;eShop)
Finally had the chance to download the game, and enjoy the tutorial mission. Loved the controls, and hope to spend a lot more time with it.
The whole concept of the Guild series was very unique and despite that fact that I would have really liked to have a physical release, I’m just glad we got it! And with character designs and art by the one and only Yusuke Kozaki at that.

Kirby’s Hypernova ability, as well as souped up classics like Sword and Rock in glorious stereoscopic 3D will make this Triple Deluxe one for the books. It’s been too long, pink friend. See the trailer in action here. [❤]Preorder: Kirby Triple Deluxe, Kirby Plushes
i’ve started to play Dark Souls (the first one) a few weeks ago. Like a lot a people knows and says, it’s one of the greatest game. Can’t wait to play the second one.
