So, anyone have any recommendation where to import a Vita from japan to EU (Finland to be exact) assuming some store has it in stock. Seems like Play Asia doesn't have any.

My old OLED Vita has a busted right analogue and I figured that might as well try to get a new one before they get too hard to find.

Looks like Play Asia has two colours of Vita. Although price has increased quite a bit since last time I looked

Is Nurse Love Syndrome as bonkers as Addiction? I loved NLA for all of the wrong reasons.

I almost woke up the wife laughing at that scene. It was so good.

I've also never quite connected with a character as much as this one.
Honestly, it's a pretty good game, all things considered. It's certainly no Flowers and it's not going to set any standard in the yuri genre, but I really enjoyed playing a yuri on a handheld.

Oh, I don't regret reading it at all. I really liked it for what it was, even if I'm super far from the target audience for it.

Yeah just checked and they do have some. Could have sworn it was all out just a few days ago.
Their stock seems to update frequently. I ordered one from them a couple days before the Japanese discontinuation announcement. They replied and said they weren't sure if/when they would get more so I canceled and went to ebay. I checked a week or so later and they had some back in stock.

After many years I've finally beat TxK in pure mode! Don't usually care about trophies but am a little annoyed it's still doesn't register as it's such a tough one to obtain. There being a trophy to do it all with three lives is crazy.


Anyway not sure I've ever played a game that's grown on me quite so much over a long period of time, I always enjoyed it as as a trippy fun diversion so kept going back to it until slowly it's become one of my GOAT games.

Looks like we were supposed to be getting YU-NO on Vita in the west before Spike Chunsoft torpedo'd PQube's relationship with 5pb and snapped everything up.

Pretty disappointing!

My new article is up - Vita's lost games, a look at the digital future:

https://kresnik258gaming.wordpress.com/2019/04/01/vitas-lost-games-a-look-at-the-digital-future/

Basically just bemoaning titles that are gone from the store. There was a lot more to write about than I first though, plenty of games have just vanished which is a real shame. The majority have physical releases, but plenty of the F2P stuff alongside the lines of Plants vs. Zombies is gone for good.
Legally, yes.

However, there are ways to preserve digital only games (but not the services obliviously).

For example, PSM games aren't completely lost, as they are still being hosted on Sony's servers.

I'm aware of other ways around - although I didn't know there was any way to still play PSM games through homebrew or emulators?

Either way, I only tend to talk about legal stuff regarding Vita in my articles :P

Understood. But to answer your question about PSM, basically it's decrypting the game to allow it to run on the Vita.

That's all I'm going to say regarding that as I'm aware how dicey the topic can be.

Thought you guys would be interested in this.

Do they still put Vita games on sale on EU PSN?

I don't remember seeing any in the last few sales I've looked at and I really want to play Danganronpa V3. But not €39.99 want.

Yes, there were tons of Vita games including Dangaronpa V3 on sale in January. If they follow the usual pattern the next big sale should start at the end of this month.

I thought it was in this thread, but I don't see it over the last couple pages. There was a user with a black Castlevania SotN menu/equip screen on a black Vita 1000 avatar. I can't seem to find said user and/or avatar. Anyone know who and/or how they did that? rom hack? Obviously it's a PS1/PSP game on Vita but I was more interested in the black menu screen...for no other reason than just curious, lol.

[edit, Rofl, nvm this is a setting you can adjust in game]

mods were fine with someone posting how to do it for PSN PSP games and decrypting them for emulator use in i think it was either the PSP OT or an emulation thread but maybe that was because the PSP is pretty much dead 100% now




So the LucBernard games are going to be Asian release instead.
am i reading this wrong or is he trying to take a dig at LRG?

I can't read a dig at LRG in that tweet no matter how hard I try. It feels like he's reassuring people who funded the IndieGoGo campaign that things are all fine.

Class of Heroes, Knights in the Knightmare, Riviera and Yggdra Union are gone from US PSN. All published by Atlus, interestingly the publisher of previously Atlus-USA titles on US PSN are now listed with SEGA of America as publisher.

Dang. I've wanted to play Knights in the Knightmare for a while. That's what I get for not jumping on it sooner.

Damn that sucks. Should've picked up Class of Heroes sooner I guess. At least the others are readily available on other platforms.

All this hype about VA-11 HALL-A getting more releases makes me want to replay it and I totally blanked on the fact that there is a psvita release which I might just pick up.
How does the game play on the vita?
