Rounding out the Sony handhelds is one of my go-to systems this generation: the PS Vita. Feels great in the hand, looks amazing, and has all the indies I could possibly want. Who needs AAA games on a handheld like this. Keep that shit to the PS4 and keep giving me smaller, awesome indie games for the Vita.

Before all the E3 news floods your feed, check out the first in the Sony Handheld portraits with the PSP.

Released in 2004/5, the PSP was the first real contender to Nintendo's massive handheld throne (GameBoy and DS lines have dominated for decades). I had a blast with mine, but personally rocked a white 2000 model with Vader on the back.

I was just talking about this issue in relation to Bloodborne. Love the controls and combat, but each level is so long that without checkpoints or a pause button, there's no way I will make it far.

Eh. Depends on the game. FPS's? No way. ARPG? Only if they're a linear storyline/gameplay. Open world anything is my favorite genre by far, so pack as much crap as you can into them and I'll be a happy camper. Platform? Yes, but only if there's no limit on saves. Otherwise I don't want to have to replay 20 minutes just because something important popped up last time and I had to quit.

For a last minute project, I'm pretty happy with how this years MIAD Define stuff is looking. It's my first real attempt at hand-rendered type...and I'm loving it for the most part.

This week, we go back and look at the terrible thing that was the PSP Go. Remember it and laugh, because that's the correct response.

Why laugh tho? This was a sad day for all PSP's. If ppl were ready to embrace downloadable content Sony wouldn't have killed off the PSP so soon. The hardware was above and beyond any handhold before it, it was a case of a device that was ahead of its time and a market not mature enough to embrace that. Flash forward two years later and all content is going digital, but too late for the PSPgo. I'm arguing that if Sony didnt put the resources into the Go to have it flounder we could've expected more Sony resources put into the scene for what lifespan the PSP had left between the release of the Go and them dropping support in favor of the Vita. I think we would've had PS Now type of service on the platform, and that would trickle down into the Vita. In case anyone is going to argue that it wasn't the PSPgo that killed the platform but piracy, I'm just saying the PSPgo flop definitely had a large part in all that and has an undeserved bad reputation. It was good hardware at the time and I use mine regularly still. There's not a better handheld for emulation in my opinion.

As promised, more of the ‪#‎HandheldPortrait‬ series is going live this week. This one being the Sega (Genesis) Nomad.

The idea was to make full Genesis games into a handheld experience that wouldn't just be worse on the tiny screen, but would blow through batteries like no other product in the world. It succeeded in doing both.

With summer in full effect, the push to finish the handheld game consoles has geared up. Rather than push into more Nintendo properties with the DS & 3DS line, I decided to go back and do some of the older systems, starting with Sega.

Linework is done on at least 5 others, coloring is happening asap, expect regular updates this summer!

FarCry2 was one of the first games I played that felt like it was punishing me...  but also made me enjoy every minute of it. I've beaten it a couple times and I've tried weird things with it, like trying perm-death runs and attempting to finish the game in as non-lethal a way as possible. I've also burned everything and killed everyone because the game lets you do both. I would love another true sequel to it, or even a modern remake for PS4/XB1.

I enjoyed what little I played of it. That being said, the respawning bad guys? Not a good idea.

I completely missed this campaign as it was live (and I'm really bummed I couldn't help in some way), but this was my advertising professor at MIAD! Congrats on getting funded Ashley!!!

Can't wait to stop by and see the place once everything is all fixed up and offering classes/etc.
