Review: PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD

Since the launch of the PlayStation Vita there has been a plethora of fantastic games released which are perfect for the system. Platformers, shooters and action-adventure games have all made an appearance but there is a genre which suits the handheld like a glove but has been neglected: Tower Defense. Luckily the wait is over my fellow TD fans because PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD is here to scratch your itch. Read more…

2013 Gaming News So Far

We have been a bit inactive here at Drop Bear Gaming so far in 2013 due to a number of unforeseen things. Excessive work at our day jobs, illness, my laptop committing seppuku and the other distractions of life have meant we haven’t managed to get many posts up here. We are working to rectify this but to make up for not really covering anything this year I’ve decided to give a run down on what big news has been happening in the gaming world in no particular order.

Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation Announced For Vita

During the Sony press conference at E3 today it was revealed that the previously untitled Assassin’s Creed game for the Vita will be called Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation. Read more…

Resistance: Burning Skies

Like many others, I have been waiting with bated breath to see what a first person shooter on the Vita would be like. The unit obviously has the potential to be great and with the sales not going too well, perhaps a FPS is exactly what the system needs to jump start its popularity. Resistance: Burning Skies is the first of the genre on the Vita and being a first-party title you would expect it to come out guns blazing and showing off exactly what we can expect. Sadly that isnโ€™t quite what has happened. Read more…

YouTube for Vita Announced

Sony Computer Entertainment have just announced that a YouTube app for the Vita will be released towards the end of June. Read more…

Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 (Vita)

I love me some fighting games! Yes-sir-ree~ I’ll admit I haven’t played any of the Marvel vs. Capcom games or the like before โ€“ that is, before Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for Vita is pretty much the same as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, but it has the added handiness of being able to be played on the go on a hand-held. Read more…

Rayman Origins (Vita)

When I got my Vita the game that I wanted to have a crack at the most was this one, Rayman Origins. After its PS3 version got the first 5/5 drop bear rating (and the only one so far) on this site when I reviewed it, I was extremely keen to see what Ubisoft Montpellier could do with it on the Vita.

The Podfather/Convo Controller
Super salesman by day, Batdad and Gamersutra by night. As a self-confessed technology pacifist, he prefers to sit on the console-war fence and play games on his PC.
PlayStation Fanboy/Motormouth
Electrician by trade and yet also highly skilled at finding time to game around work and family commitments. A PlayStation fanboy with a platinum count and obvious podcast bias to prove it. Thinks DC is clearly superior to Marvel. Has been known to rant.

Started in January 2011 by brothers Lucas and Matt, Drop Bear Gaming has been operating for over 7 years offering a fresh and relaxed perspective on the video game industry. The website is a passion project more than anything and it is our distinct pleasure to continue bringing entertainment to our listeners and viewers.
