The End Of Productivity: Minecraft And Nidhogg Are Out On PS Vita Today

If you have the wonderbox that is Sony’s PlayStation Vita, today is a very good day for you. Just don’t plan to get much done for the rest of this month.

Minecraft needs no introduction. The small indie project that became a worldwide phenomenon now has a place in many homes, colleges and schools as a tool for pure creativity. Part of its appeal is that it can be anything you want it to be: survival horror, digital Lego, working computer, caving sim. It’s possible to lose massive chunks of time to its blocky depths, and having a full-formed Vita version – complete with proper controls and online multiplayer – means that every spare minute can go into your growing creation.

Nidhogg isn’t as well known, but is one of the most enjoyable games I’ve ever played. A tense dance of cat-and-mouse, the sound of swords clanging¬†against the steaming, spitting backgrounds will keep you entertained for hours on end. The victor earns the right to be devoured by Nidhogg himself. How’s that for a payoff.


Of course, if you’d rather be scared shitless, then The Evil Within in also out today for home consoles. However, even though it’s designed by gaming master Shinji Mikami, it’s going to be a while before I drum up enough courage to try it out.
