Them Japanese love their Monster Hunter unlike in the US or Europe. But I have to admit, the game has its charm. That love is probably the reason why there are two Monster Hunter PSP bundles out right now.
The bundle is available in Vibrant Blue and Radiant red, both comes with Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G or Freedom Unite.

DodoGo: Roll Dodo Eggs to Safety

Envy of PSP owners playing LocoRoco? Then envy no more, fellow DS owner -- DodoGo is here! This little game might not be a LocoRoco, but it sure has similar gameplay, mechanics, and charm!

In DodoGo you are tasked to guide Dodo eggs to safety. By using your stylus, you can perform awesome stuff such as connecting pulleys, placing springs and changing the land. Predators are out to eat your babies so be sure to be wary of those.

Here's the official DodoGo trailer for your perusal.

Life-Sized Gundam Statue

Note: This post is not handheld-gaming-related at all. This pic set is just too cool to pass up.

Here's another reason to love (or fear) Japan: a freakin' 1/1 scale Gundam . Or as I would like to call it, a giant robot statue full of awesome.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Gundam franchise someone thought it would a good idea to build a freaking life-sized statue of a Gundam RX-78 mecha. It stands 59 foot tall and boasts 50 points in which pretty lights will shoot out. No word if these "lights" are actually skin-scalding lasers.

I would totally buy a ticket to Japan this intant if they say that one could go inside this life-sized Gundam, in like the cockpit or somthing.

OMG! It's really coming! I've been waiting for the second Professor Layton game since... well since I finished Professor Layton and the Curious Village! Here's the trailer for Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box!

The Professor Layton series for the DS is a puzzle video game where players have to solve puzzles to move the story along. It sounds boring when I write it but those who've played it knows what a gem this game is. There are currently three games in the series and there's three more to come in 2010.
What if I told you that a new Pokemon game, Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver, will soon be out? What if I told you a Pokemon on that game can be build experience if you take a walk it? Meet the Poke Walker.

The Poke Walker uses the same technology as Personal Trainer: Walking. The more you walk with this device in your person, the more experience and presonal affinity your Pokemon will get. Also, this cute little device generates "watts" which you could use to catch creatures and such.
God-killer Kratos is set to show up as a guest character on the upcoming PSP title Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny. Kratos, or K-dog as I like to call him, is the main character of God of War and is undoubtedly the owner of the hardest pair of cojones in gaming history.

Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny for the PSP is another great addition to the franchise. The game will feature returning characters such as Cassandra, Seong Mi-na, Tira and Voldo. A new character by the name of Dampierre will also be introduced. This awesome fighting game will be released on September 30, 2009.
