PB & Jason Issue 108: Mini Miiverse

There's a new Wii in town, and it's not the one U think.

This week's PB & Jason offers a question: What will it take for you to buy a PlayStation Vita? Oh, it also asks why you would buy a Wii Mini! Beyond those two consoles and the special deals available for them, PB & Jason 108 takes you on a journey of three Wii U launch titles -- Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros. U, and Disney Epic Mickey 2 -- providing definitive verdicts on each one. Click through for the download and streaming links!

PB & Jason is recorded in front of a live studio audience every Wednesday. For ticket information, please email jason@pixlbit.com.

The price for that bundle was excellent, even before they threw in PlayStation All Stars and the PS Plus membership. It may be a case of "too little, too late" though. PS Vita needs games, plain and simple. It needs games that are designed for the platform, and it needs them yesterday.

Of course, even then I wouldn't buy one, just like I probably won't be purchasing a 3DS. I have far too many unplayed and unopened games for my GBA, DS, and PSP to justify buying a new handheld. I'm a console gamer now, and I'm rarely in a situation where I feel like sitting at home and playing a portable game when I have more interesting games to play on my TV. Dragon Quest IX and Corpse Party are two of the best exceptions to that in recent years.

So! Good news/bad news time. Bad news first: I have a sinus infection messing with my throat and voice. As such, I won't be recording PB & Jason tonight. Good news: Instead, I'll be recording it tomorrow. I should be well enough by then, and there's no PixlTalk scheduled to go live then, so it should be a fine time to release it. No skipping PB & Jason this week!

Monument Valley Review

Every so often, I am lucky enough to play a game so delightful, so perfectly engineered for its platform, and so inspiring that I have to take a step back, stunned.  While other arts such as literature and painting seem long in the tooth these days, clutching to cynicism and nihilism like a terminal patient clinging to the sheets in his bed, great games seem imbued with a sort of impossible optimism and generosity towards the human condition.  Monument Valley, a game about redemption through sacred geometry, is one of those games.
