On Gravity Rush

On Gravity Rush

Posted by on Mar 25, 2015 in Commentary, featured, Vita |

Sony was selling certain games for less than a dollar over the weekend, one of which was a Vita title called Gravity Rush. I’ve read good things about it so it was an instant purchase for me. It’s been occupying most of my waking hours for the past week.

Gravity Rush is an action platformer for the PlayStation Vita. You play as Kat, a girl with a mysterious past who has the power to shift gravity. She can cancel gravity to float in mid-air, then anchor it to another point, allowing her to “fall” to it. It’s like flying except she’s not going against gravity; she’s controlling it.

I also appreciate the nuances in how her “flight” is animated. Sometimes she’s falling head first with her limbs stretched downward to mimic free falling in natural gravity. Then there are times when she’s falling like someone yanked her backwards from the waist. It conveys that while Kat has control over gravity, it is still a force that she succumbs to.

You know what it reminded me of? Lashing in Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive. Similar to how Kaladin learns his powers in the series, Kat learns hers and masters them. And with the recent announcement that the game will be released on the PS4, I can’t wait to see her debut on the big screen. I guess that’s another post for another day.

Persona 4 Golden: Early Victory Cry With Kaiwan

Persona 4 Golden: Early Victory Cry With Kaiwan

Posted by on Sep 16, 2014 in Commentary, featured, Guides, Tips, Vita |

Just a quick post for personal reference. Here’s how to get Victory Cry as early as June 24, the earliest time you can get it. The point of this process is to limit the number of skills Tetrakarn can change to, increasing the chances of getting Victory Cry. I strongly recommend using different save slots.

You’ll need the following:

  • Ghoul
  • Oberon
  • Pixie
  • Ukobach
  • 13,000 Yen

Ready? Here goes:

  1. Ukobach + Ghoul = Kaiwan. One of the skills will change. That skill should be Tetrakarn. Reload if it’s not. Save your game once you get it.
  2. Kaiwan + Oberon = Matador. Make sure that the changed skill is inherited. Save again.
  3. Matador + Ghoul = Mokoi. Again, one of the skills will change. What you want is for whatever skill Tetrakarn changed to change to something else. Reload until you get it. It’s possible for it to change back to Tetrakarn. Reload if that happens. Save again.
  4. Mokoi + Pixie = Oberon. Make sure that the changed skill is inherited. Save again.
  5. Kaiwan + Oberon = Matador. You should now have two Tetrakarns. Save.
  6. Matador + Ukobach = Kaiwan. Keep reloading until you get Victory Cry.

It’s possible for Tetrakarn to change to powerful skills like Brave Blade (single-target severe physical damage) and Repel Element (such as Ice, Elec, Physical).
