by Josh Tolentino

It's not every day that you can get a bunch of good deals on a cool games, and that day has come if you're the type to buy things on PlayStation platforms. Both versions of Atlus' excellent Dragon's Crown are free to members of PS Plus, and you can get them right now.

In addition, a raftload of sweet Japanese games has also hit the budget bins, starting with a price drop for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance and discounts on the Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remastered bundle and the Final Fantasy XIII sequels. PSP and PS1 Classics are also rife with sales, including Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger, Front Mission 3, Growlanser, Knights in the Nightmare, and the PSP Persona games.

Considering how many JRPGs and tactical games are in the array this month, that's at least several hundred hours of play for relatively little pay. Might be time to consider a purchase if your wallet's tight this summer. Check out the full list (non-Japanese games included) over at the PlayStation blog.

It's kind of weird. Xevious for the Famicom was actually one of my favorite shooting games, but I never noticed how ugly it looks. Not only that, it has to be the most uninteresting game to watch someone play, even someone a...

So yeah... let's watch GACKT play video games: Sonic the Hedgehog 4

As you probably guessed, GACKT is still on his couch looking cool and gaming. However, you might notice something weird. It looks like he might actually be trying! Even stranger, there seems to be a glimmer of fun peering from his darkened shades. Bring it GACKT!
