Ign has a ps vita video. Looks crazy. Any1 else see the clip because the characters run around really fast. Kinda like a chicken running around with its head chopped off.

RPG Maker Fes looks interesting and perfect for the 3ds. Supposedly people can play other peoples created games without purchasing the game itself.

@sladakrobot: He doesn't. He even makes reference to some events in Celceta, if you choose the right dialogue choices.
