According to the email, those are going to be US$39.99 each, which is going to be a hard pass for me.

Been playing further in Soul Sacrifice Delta. Hit level 100 and used the rite of transmutation to reset and get a powerful sigil. Are there any good guides to this game online? I searched and couldn’t find any. There’s a lot of things they added from the original game, and it’s not all explained. For one of my sigils I need a “Dullahan SE” but the lowest level Dullahan I can fight is too high level and gives me the “+” version.

Thomas was Alone (try-hard 2D platformer, people seem to love it though!):

And a review of one of my favourite games of all time, Final Fantasy VII (PS1 classic version):

God, Root Double is such a drag to get through due to flashbacks. I finally got through the whole Watase flashback, which went about as I expected. I was like great, now the plot can finally progress properly. Nope. Now everybody gets a flashback. =______=

The game is 70% flashbacks. I wish there was an option to "skip flashback", the game would've been a lot better.

Japanese seem to have a thing for flashbacks.

Btw, when did sony get rid of the stupid "you can't earn trophies for pre owned games"??? I remember having to delete Ninja Gaiden to get the trophies, but I recently bought a pre owned Disgaea 4 and didn't get the notification. Now that I think about it, I don't think I got it back when I played Uncharted GA a couple of years ago.

EDIT: Oh shit, I actually played Uncharted: GA 4 years ago. Now I feel old.

I Think this only occurs when playing a game that saves directly on the cartridge such as VLR or Jak and Daxter collection

Hey, I am getting a vita for the first time today. Any games you guys recommend? I am getting P4 Golden for it, so that's already one I know of.

Few new reviews up on my site - Bad Apple Wars (disappointing otome VN):

https://kresnik258gaming.wordpress.com/2019/05/22/vita-bad-apple-wars-review/

My Big Sister (surprisingly enjoyable pixel horror-adventure - and I really don't like 'horror' games so that's big praise):

https://kresnik258gaming.wordpress.com/2019/05/19/vita-my-big-sister-review/

And Sword Art Online: Lost Song (really enjoyable, if slightly repetitive, action-RPG):

Got my physical copy of Bloostained today. Plumped for the NES styled box version and much like KOF 97, LRG pulled out the stops to make this one damn nice. The box looks fantastic, and putting the Vita box in a little dust cover? Instant nostalgia right there.

Assuming there STILL isn't any concrete release dates on Super Meat Boy, VVVVVV and 1001 Spikes I'm done Vita collecting now. I should have 500 physical games and there's really nothing else that I don't have that interests me. Its been a wild ride for sure!

New content up on my site:

Article about where various Vita developers went after the end of Sony's handheld line:


Bad Apple Wars review (probably the worst otome I've played so far):


LEGO Lord of the Rings review (fairly average LEGO title):


My Big Sister review (better than I expected pixel adventure):


Sword Art Online: Lost Song review (repetitive but extremely enjoyable anime tie-in):

Damn that's a lot of games. I think I have like 160 and I thought my collection was huge, lol.

Just got the platinum on The Longest Five Minutes - really easy plat for any trophy hunters. Game was pretty nice too. It's more of a VN than an RPG, the RPG segments are extremely fluff and you can just run from point A -> point B casting "Repel" spell over and over.

Really nice music too

I went on a spree early in the life of the console and I own an awful lot of the Euro lot (almost a complete collection there) and lots of imports. But eventually I stopped as finding Euro games got more annoying and all the limited release stuff basically meant I was paying huge markups for rubbish indie stuff I never wanted to play. So I focused on just the limited releases I want, and I'm happy with the result! Now just to play them all...

Totally true. At the moment I have Rabi Ribi to finish (which is awesome), then I got Iconoclasts and Shakedown Hawaii waiting in the wings to be played next. And that's just what I have in my immediate pile and not my main shelving for Vita games!

Which one has less story sequences: Criminal Girls 2 or Mary Skelter? I want to play something while watching something else. Something tells me that Mary Skelter would be the one, as it’s a DRPG.

Mary Skelter has a significant amount of story, especially early game. Trips back to town after a dungeon will end up being 30mins and you have multiple scenes throughout each dungeon that are 5-10mins as well.

CG2 will have fewer story sequences and those that are there are most often "predictable anime banter" bland so they're easily skimmable while watching stuff.

Guess I’ll go with that one. Thanks!

Only downer is no Garou/Last Blade etc. but at least they got Metal Slug 3. I'll be getting both Rocketbirds, Mutant Blob, Guacamelee, Super Meat Boy and Atari Classics. I'd get Papers Plus but I'm completely shit at the game, and can't be spending more money on it (already own it digitally). LRG goes out with a bang, plenty of great choices there. Truly an end of an era.

Meh. Nothing I need physically so I guess LDM and Fata Morgana will be my last physical new Vita releases and likely last LRG orders.

Was the first Damascus Gear game even released in English on Vita? All the trophy lists seem to be for either the HD version on PS4 or the Japanese release.

Not in Europe :(

But how come it doesn't show up via PSN Profiles or PlayStation Trophies?
It's showing up for me, try checking the link:

I was surprised to see a Vita logo at the Square Enix press conference (for Romancing Saga 3). Is this the only Vita news from e3?

Sounds like Sekai Project uncancelled a few Vita ports (Fault: Milestone One and World End Economica).
