When I heard this trick-tacular news about Sega offering Jet Set Radio for free on Steam as part of their “Make War not Love” campaign I immediately downloaded the graffiti-glorifying Dreamcast classic. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased Jet Set Radio (all right, I can: three). Each time I purchase it for a new console, it gets a little bit better.

We all encountered something decidedly odd this (Super Bowl) Sunday. As I was reading Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World — yes, I read a novel instead of actually watching the Super Bowl, I am sorry to reveal to you that I am not a football fan — I heard something familiar fill my ears. Pokemon. I looked up from my book. And what did I see? That’s right, people, you guessed it: Pikachu. Sandwiched between the Budweiser and Doritos commercials was an advertisement celebrating twenty years of Pokemon. I was shocked (pun intended).

As a PS Plus subscriber, doesn’t it make sense to own a PS Vita? I would get more free games. I’d gain access to a library of Vita-exclusive titles. Seems like an obvious choice, right? Maybe, but a non-Nintendo handheld? Experience has proven that to be a risky investment. You fooled me once with the PSP, Sony, and I’m not likely to forget it any time soon. Back touch? Stop putting touch screens on my gaming systems! The PS Vita’s hardware is amazing. But what does great hardware mean if you don’t have good software to back it up?

Do I need a PS Vita? I simply cannot decide.
