Jeff Cannata coined a phrase on the Weekend Confirmed podcast that will probably stick with me for as long as I write about entertainment products
Desperately struggling to balance his positive opinion of Square Enix's Nier against the game's catalogue of flaws, Cannata concluded that the title is "more fun than it is good". It's a...

Sony's released a new trailer for Patapon 3, presumably with the purpose of reminding everyone it is still a video game with the intention of releasing soon
The game looks distinctly like more of the same, which we totally don't have a problem with. However, we can't wait to see how the series translates to the multiple input capacity of the NGP. The PSP's definitely having a solid final hurrah..
Looks like Square's readying that digital copy of Parasite Eve just in time for the series' upcoming spiritual successor, The 3rd Birthday
The survival horror classic has been rated by the ESRB for a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable release — presumably via the PlayStation Store. Don't hold your breath over a European re-release — the game...
Following yesterday's UK release date, Square Enix has released an English trailer for The 3rd Birthday
It's rich with the kind of disjointed dialogue and silly music you'd expect from a hastily translated Japanese game. But we're still pumped. Pretty girls, big guns and a nonsense plot? What's not to love?

And so it starts
.. With confirmation that original PSP titles purchased through the PlayStation Store will be backwards compatible on the NGP, publishers are beginning to think it might be a good idea to release their backcatalogue on the PSN. First-up are Square Enix's PSP remakes of Final Fantasy 1 & 2. Both will cost 9.99, with the first...
Parasite Eve is back
(Sort of.) Square Enix has readily slapped a March 29th release date on Square Enix's PE spin-off, The 3rd Birthday. Bizarrely, the game will only release on UMD, with "no plans" for a digital version. We don't get it. What's the disadvantage of releasing the game on UMD and the PlayStation Store? Weird. In addition to the release date, Square's also confirmed that..
Square Enix has formally revealed the Twisted Edition of upcoming PSP shooter, The 3rd Birthday
The Europe-only (for now) package includes a number of premium items, all of which focusing on the game's, err, lovely protagonist Aya Brea. There's an artbook, lithographs and more. It sounds like all UMD copies of The 3rd Birthday will ship as the Twisted Edition. Which is cool. More freebies for you,..
Square Enix has slapped juicy spring release dates on The 3rd Birthday and DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim] FINAL FANTASY in Europe

For as much dancing around the issue as Square Enix did, the original Parasite Eve games were always going to come to the PlayStation Network
Now there's a date placed on the re-releases. The first game in the franchise will hit the Japanese PlayStation Store on November 4th, with the sequel following on November 18th. Both will land plenty of time...
So you're telling us just after we bid upwards of £10 for a retail copy of Parasite Eve II, the franchise is set to head to the PlayStation Network (presumably at half the price)
Brilliant. We should have known, there's been mumblings about bringing the classic PlayStation horror franchise to the PS3's Store for some time now; but it looked like...
Square Enix has pledged a Q1, 2011 release for The 3rd Birthday in the West
That means the game could drop anywhere between Januaray and March next year. The game is the spiritual successor to the Parasite Eve franchise. There's a new(ish) trailer after the jump.
We are not massive Parasite Eve fans
We are not massive PSP shooter fans. But something about Square Enix's The 3rd Birthday has always held our attention. That's why we were pretty disappointed when Square decided not to release the game's Tokyo Game Show trailer. Why wouldn't they? Silly. Whatever. It's up now. And as you can see, the game looks rather good. The shooting looks similar to a Syphon..
Square Enix's Hajime Tabata has revealed that the publisher are currently "making adjustments" to make the PSN re-releases of Parasite Eve 1 and 2 a reality

With the game due soon, many are discussing the possibility of bringing the original games to the PlayStation Network. According to VG247, it's looking more and more likely. In an...

Speaking at GamesCom, the Square Enix man revealed that The 3rd Birthday was developed for the PSP because the "team had a lot of experience" for the system. But what if millions were to run out in their droves to get a taste of the spiritual successor to the classic..
If you've been itching for a new trailer from Square Enix's The 3rd Birthday -- then prepare to itch some more
The game's official Twitter account (we're presuming it's run by the lovely lady from the screenshots), has teased that there will be a new trailer sometime in "mid-August". I received many questions about publishing a trailer, so will be available in mid-August at the..
NowGamer's reporting confirmation from Square Enix that the PSP's spiritual successor to Parasite Eve, The 3rd Birthday, will indeed launch in Europe
There had been concerns that the game would not make it over here, but it's probably best to stop worrying. At least for now. No date's been confirmed as of yet.

But the game made a dramatic reappearance last night during Sony's E3 2010 press conference — and embedded above is what we saw. No date on the Parasite Eve spin-off just yet, hopefully it'll be out this year, though.

Do you have any expectations for the upcoming Playstation Portable shooter The 3rd Birthday from Square Enix? Nope, probably not
It's been in development for a hell of a long time and we've barely seen anything of the game yet. Having said that, what we have seen looks extremely cool. So, Square Enix man Hajime Tabata reckons the game will "exceed expectations" when it finally drops. It..
