For the longest time, Devil Summoner was a Japan-only title when it was released for the Sega Saturn and PS1. In 2012, Atlus brought the Devil Summoner game to the West in the form of Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers for the 3DS. It was every Cyberpunk Otaku’s dream.

Today, Atlus announced they’re releasing a sequel for current and next-gen platforms. Let’s take a look!

Soul Hackers 2 is coming August 26th, 2022 to PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

It’s very common for IT to assist customers who have little technical aptitude. That’s typically why they need our help to begin with. But what happens when you deal with a customer who’s technical aptitude is so poor, they can’t relay to you what they need you to do for them? Here’s that story and how I dealt with it.

This will likely be the final Tales from IT on this site. Hope you all enjoyed it!

There are few classic PC adventure game fans who don’t know the names of Sam and Max: Freelance Police. I would describe the games as absolute insanity, with two lovable characters and gameplay logic that stretches any adventure game fan’s mind.

The team over at Big Sugar have been working on a brand-new Sam & Max VR game for some time, and now it looks like PSVR owners will be sitting in the office of the Freelance Police very soon. Here’s the trailer:

Sam & Max: This Time It’s Virtual is out now for Oculus. It is coming to the PSVR February 23rd, 2022.

How I Would Relaunch Captain N: The Game Master as a Live-Action TV Series February 6, 2022

Doing something new today, folks. In the past, I’ve given my thoughts about how I would handle theme park expansions, or given my opinions about movie and TV adaptations. Today, I’m throwing my hat into the ring and giving my thoughts about how I would plan a show if I was put in charge of it.

Nintendo has seen an incredible renaissance with the success of the Nintendo Switch and its library of games. New Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, and Metroid games have seen tremendous success. Super Nintendo World has opened in Universal Studios Japan to high praise and is heavily expected to come to the United States in either one coast or the other within the next few years. Also, a new Super Mario movie is in development for a theatrical release within the next few years. My point is Nintendo is on top and it’s clear their franchises are still as relevant today as they’ve ever been.

However, there’s one aspect of Nintendo’s history that has remained largely forgotten except for a group of die-hard fans, and that was the animated series Captain N: The Game Master. Produced by DIC, the show was an animated adventure series that aired on Saturday Mornings during the early 90s. It starred Captain N, a human from the real world, who gets sucked into his Nintendo. He is tasked with saving the people on the other side of the screen from destruction by led by Mother Brain. Joining him are several Nintendo fan favorites including Pit from Kid Icarus, Simon Belmont from Castlevania and of course, Mega Man.

The show lasted two seasons, and featured crossover episodes with the characters that also had an ongoing animated series being produced at the time. As far as I remember, the show had no official ending, and there was no ending where Captain N is able to return to his home in victory.

It has been thirty years since the original show aired. Recently, we got to thinking a lot about the consequences of what it would be like if a show like that was done today. What if Captain N never left Videoland? What if he spent the last thirty years on the other end of the screen, and his battle against the army of Mother Brain had remained a stalemate the whole time? Then we wondered what would happen if Mother Brain was able to cross over in the real world. The possibilities suddenly became endless.

So here are our ideas for how we would bring back Captain N in the form of a live-action series for modern day.

Netflix, feel free to call me any time.
