However, while this new adventure will be very familiar to anyone who's played RCR, it...

Assuming that your local game store even has a PlayStation Vita presence these days, if it's anything like ours, we're guessing that it looks a little like a picked over Chinese buffet, packed with scraggy, over-the-hill scraps. That's partially because the handheld's retail presence has been dwindling for some time now, as more and...
Specifics under lock and key
Retro City Rampage creator Brian Provinciano has been particularly complimentary of Sony’s strategy with the PlayStation Vita over the past few months.
