Game Schedule

12:00 noon GMT, Friday 2nd May – Mobile Madness (prize giveaway!) – Live On Youtube

It wouldn’t be right for Vita Player to be doing any sort of PlayStation Vita challenge without some form of PlayStation Mobile gaming involved and with access to the entire library of PSM titles so we’re kicking things off with this pretty varied session. Apart from a couple of personal high score challenges, I’m putting myself entirely in your hands so it’s up to you what I play though so let me have your gaming requests! As one of the most dedicated PlayStation Mobile enthusiasts around we’ve got all the PSM titles released for the EU market so if there’s a game you want me to play just put the request in as I can guarantee that I’ll have it!

Confirmed Games So Far

  • Trolly Bird
  • Helicopter
  • Sixty Second Shooter Deluxe
  • Sea Run
  • Word Blocked
  • Switch Galaxy
  • Life Of Pixel
  • Kung Fu Fight!

With more to be played! This session will also have our first competition of the day to win a PS Vita accessory bundle!

14:00 GMT, Friday 2nd May – If If Moves, Shoot It!

I’ve been a fan of the shoot-em-up genre since I was a kid going to the arcades with my parents on holiday so this hour is going to be dedicated to the shoot-em-up genre. Whether it’s a straight-up side-scrolling shoot-em-up or a twin-stick shooter the chances are that I’ll take a crack at it!

  • TxK
  • Velocity Ultra
  • Super Stardust Delta
  • Sine Mora
  • Total Recoil

15:00 GMT, Friday 2nd May – Anything Goes (prize giveaway!)

First of my random game sessions where I’ll just see what games I have to hand and just start playing through the collection… Stay tuned to Twitter though as I’ll be giving another prize out during this hour!

Confirmed Games So Far

  • Men’s Room Mayhem
  • Treasures Of Montezuma Blitz
  • Angry Birds Trilogy

With more games to be confirmed. Another competition as well to win a second PS Vita accessory bundle.

16:00 GMT, Friday 2nd May – Retro Rampage

I started gaming back in the 70s with one of the old Pong clones and while I’m not going that far, I am going to put some time into some retro gaming. I’ll be looking to my PS One and PSP collection here to play a selection of old arcade and console classics taken from the Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded, Capcom Classics Collection Remixed, Sega Megadrive Collection, Atari Anniversary Edition Redux, PlayStation Home Arcade and more besides and you can choose what games I play!

Confirmed Games So Far

  • Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded
  • Capcom Classics Collection Remixed
  • PlayStation Home Arcade
  • Sega Megadrive Collection

17:00 GMT, Friday 2nd May – Anything Goes: Part II (prize giveaway!)

More random gaming and another prize to be handed out to one lucky person on Twitter!

Confirmed Games So Far

  • Germinator
  • Michael Jackson: The Experience HD

It’s certainly underrated by many but it’s a fun rhythm game and has a wider appeal than to fans of his music, so we’re giving away a copy of Michael Jackson: The Experience HD this hour.

18:00 GMT, Friday 2nd May – Console Saga Challenge (prize giveaway!) plus Mobile Madness Part II

I’m a big fan of the PlayStation Mobile game Console Saga from TACS Games and I love the random level generator. On the Friday night I’ll be generating a level at random and posting the code on Twitter – just play the level, take a screenshot showing how fast you’ve completed it and post it to Twitter tagging us in it. The fastest to complete it after an hour wins a brand new sealed PS Vita game! Not got the game yet? Head over to the PlayStation Mobile section of the PSN Store and support TACS Games today! The rest of this hour will be taken up with more PlayStation Mobile games chosen by you.

Confirmed Games So Far

  • Console Saga
  • Surge
  • Crystal Ice
  • Chimpact
  • Hungry Giraffe
  • Rebel
  • Bloodred Wyvern

As I said, you’ve got a real challenge on your hands here but you need to own a copy of Console Saga to enter. The level details will be posted at the start of the hour so good luck if you want to win the mystery game!

19:00 GMT, Friday 2nd May – Don’t Cross (Buy) The Streams (prize giveaway!)

Cross Buy is one of the best ideas to come out of Sony apart from the consoles themselves and has been an influential decision for many gamers when it comes to choosing what titles to purchase from the PSN Store. I’ll be diving into some of my favourites for a couple of hours to keep my gaming spirits high…

Confirmed Games So Far

  • Stick It To The Man
  • SteamWorld Dig
  • KickBeat

This time, thanks to those wonderful folk at ImageForm, I’ve got THREE copies of SteamWorld Dig to give away for the PS4 and PS Vita so make sure you don’t miss this one…!

21:00 GMT, Friday 2nd May – Sports Stars (prize giveaway!)

Time for a plethora of sports games to take centre stage on the Vita. Whether they’re more “traditional” sports games you’d expect on consoles like football or tennis or games like darts, I’ll be taking them all on! During this hour I’ll be giving away a brand new sealed PS Vita game on Twitter so make sure you’re following us!

Confirmed Games So Far

  • Let’s Fish! Hooked On
  • Everybody’s Golf

22:00 GMT, Friday 2nd May – Pinball Crazy – Live On Youtube

I’ll be dedicating this hour to pinball games of one form or another across all the formats supported by the Vita. Both the classic Amiga games by 21st Century Entertainment – Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies will get a look in from the Minis range, but the focus will be on the Vita with plenty of tables played from The Pinball Arcade, Star Wars Pinball and Zen Pinball 2. This is an interactive day though so I want you to decide what tables I play on The Pinball Arcade and Zen Pinball 2 – I’ve got them all so just fire your suggestions over on Twitter! You can even decide whether it should be a normal or multiplayer game for those who want to join me!

01:00 GMT, Saturday 3rd May – Indie Spectacular

Just because games are from smaller studios doesn’t always mean that they’re not as entertaining or engaging as their so-called AAA counterparts.

06:00 GMT, Saturday 3rd May – Size Isn’t Everything

The Minis were introduced for the PSP several years ago as a way of offering low-cost bite-sized gaming. Compatible with the PS3 and PS Vita, they’re considered by many as the predecessor to PlayStation Mobile and have a wide range of games for all tastes from smaller studios and with most of these still available at knock down prices, it’s time to let these shine and while I don’t own them all, I’ve got almost 60 so I’m letting you decide what I play…
