PS3 Fanboy review: Piyotama


Piyotama is the most recent original title from Sony to hit the PlayStation Store, and unlike the most recent offerings, it's actually not a dual-analog shooter. Instead, Piyotama is a puzzler somewhat along the lines of Bejeweled, where you are tasked with matching up eggs of the same color for mama Piyo (a large chicken with a seemingly endless supply of eggs).

On paper, the title offers a lot. You have a bargain-bin price of $2.99, attractive and well done graphics with 1080p support, online leaderboards and decent Sixaxis support. Unfortunately, when you fire up the game you realize that it's not enough, the one thing Sony forgot in to put in is decent gameplay that rewards skill. Hit the jump to find out what went wrong.

American PSN updates for August 9th


Piyotama! That's cool, right? Eggs! Yay! It's that time again, we know what's coming to the US PSN this afternoon. Check below for the full list.
  • Piyotama game ($2.99)
  • Heavenly Sword Anime episode 1 (free)
  • Heavenly Sword making of video 1 (free)
  • Turok E3 trailer (free)
  • 10,000 BC movie trailer (free)
  • Fred Claus movie trailer (free)
  • Superbad movie trailer (free)
  • Perfect Stranger movie trailer (free)
How do we feel about that? We're not sure. We're still numb from the thrashing the European PSN gave us earlier today. We will say this though, as annoyed as we are that playable content is woefully limited (or egg-based), that Heavenly Sword anime is pretty nice. As animation connoisseurs we appreciate this sort of thing and look forward to future episodes. Though, not at the expense of demos. Please.

PSN puzzler Piyotama hitting American PS3s tomorrow


Sony has given us a peak at what we're getting tomorrow during the weekly refresh of the PlayStation Store, and it clucks. Chickens that is; we're getting Piyotama, the adorable egg based puzzle game that was released in Japan a couple months back. The game has an interesting and attractive art style, but early impressions of the Japanese version were pretty lackluster. Similar to GoPuzzle, it seems like another generic attempt at a standard puzzler.

No price has been announced yet, though going by historical trends you can assume about a $7 cost. Also no word on if there is a free trial version or not, but we should find that all out tomorrow when we hear about the full content refresh.

Japan readies Piyotama up for release on PlayStation Network


Japanese gamers will have a new puzzle game to whet their appetites, come June 22nd. Piyotama is a frantic and challenging game that encourages you to line up hatching chicken eggs in a manner that provides insane combo scores. It would certainly seem that when it comes to developing new puzzle titles, that anything is possible when you have a wild imagination. Sony hasn't officially announced the title for any other region as of yet. So if lining up chicken eggs for killer scores sounds like your cup of tea, log in to the Japanese PlayStation Network and give Piyotama a go.
