As some of you know I really enjoy dabbling in new server technologies. Lately I’ve been tinkering around with Amazon Web Services as a research project at work and I decided to go ahead and open a personal account to take advantage of the Free Tier offerings they have available. As part of that I have set up a web server running on an EC2 instance and resurrected AlfredBonnabel.com. Woohoo!
It’s been a long time since I was excited about a new release for the PSP, but this week we see the launch of Brandish – The Dark Revenant from XSEED and Falcom Games. Coming in at $19.99 as a digital download from the Playstation Store, Brandish is compatible with the PSP, PS Vita, and Playstation TV. Check it out!
I am incredibly excited to see another awesome Nihon Falcom and XSEED RPG come to Steam. I am a big fan of the Ys series and have been looking forward to each release on Steam as they have been announced. The same goes for the Legend of Heroes series, which until now I have not had a chance to try. I’m looking forward to diving in over the next few days and I promise to give me first impressions soon.
That’s right! We are finally going to get a retrocade! And it is being brought to us by Daniel Solis and Terry South, the same guys that have brought the Classic Gaming Association to life and given us a taste of the classic arcade experience. These guys have the knowledge, experience, and will to make this project a success and I for one cannot wait to experience this classic.
I encourage anyone who is in the area to pitch in whatever you can to help make Z82 the best retrocade it can be. And if you aren’t in the area considering pitching in a couple of bucks anyways. The classic arcade experience should be preserved so that others can have a chance to know what it was like to walk among all of those lights and sounds to pick the game you were going to play.
