Sine Mora Flies onto the PS Vita

With the months-long game drought and disappointing launch of Resistance: Burning Skies last week, the PS Vita hasn’t been faring too well.  Luckily, things seem to be picking up for the new handheld with the smattering of recent announcements; a new Sly Cooper game, an exclusive Assassin’s Creed title and the impending US release of Gravity Rush come immediately to mind.  And just this morning, Reverb Games announced that the exceptionally beautiful shmup Sine Mora, previously an XBLA exclusive, will be making its way to the Vita “soon.”  Keep reading for all the details.

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.11 – “The Other Woman”

Never have times been so tumultuous behind the glass walls at SDCP than in the latest episode of Mad Men.  Almost the entire episode focused tightly on the business side of things, specifically the agency’s attempt to acquire Jaguar and the measures it took to do so.  It was intense, emotional, and ultimately heartbreaking, and it was the most captivating episode of this season.

Ronimo Games Releases Awesomenauts Theme Song as Free Download

While my opinion of the game itself is somewhat conflicted, Awesomenauts has one of the greatest theme songs ever conceived for a video game.  The band Sonic Picnic really managed to capture the crazy chaotic fun of the game with this ’80s glam metal-inspired opening track, and it’s free to download (as long as you mention it on Facebook or Twitter).  You can find the link after the break.

TV Korner: Mad Men 5.9 – “Dark Shadows”

Continuing the interesting theme of each new episode being centered on some specific human emotion, “Dark Shadows” explores feelings of jealousy.   Even though most of the characters in the show are fairly well-off and happy some of the time, they all have something to be jealous about; someone else’s body, wife, creative talent, recognition, so on and so forth.  While not the most exciting or revelatory episode of the season, “Dark Shadows” serves as yet another brilliant character study of some of the most compelling characters around.

Comics Korner: Mark Millar’s Superior Review

In a world where superhero comics are often regarded as lowbrow and childish entertainment, it’s nice to see a few writers taking the genre and flipping it on its head.  Dating all the way back to Alan Moore’s Watchmen and, more recently, in Mark Waid’s stellar series Irredeemable, creators have been delving into the minds of superheroes and giving them something much more important than bulging biceps and laser vision (though they often have those too).  They make their heroes relatable and susceptible to emotional strife even if they are physically invulnerable, and this is exactly what Scottish writer Mark Millar accomplishes with Superior.
