The Firefly Diary, is set to be released on the Playstation Vita. This action/puzzle game revolves around a young amnesiac girl climbing her way out of ancient ruins, filled with dangers abound all while gradually collecting memories of her fragmented past. The game utilizes a unique system in which the player may travel between the “World of Light” and the “World ofShadow” in order to solve puzzles.


Criminal Girls Invite Only is a remake of the 2010 Playstation Portable Game Criminal Girls. The game follows a group of young female delinquents and their struggle to escape from Hell itself. The updated version features new playable characters and features.

Lastly, The Awakened Fate Ultimatum is an RPG set to release on the Playstation 3. This game is a sequel to the 2013 game The Guided Fate Paradox, released on the same system. The game is set several years after the first game, and revolves heavily around the player making choices which will effect both the lives of the character, and those around him.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
