        Retro, I found out that S&S works on PS-TV so it looks like I want to hold onto my copy. I wish you luck in finding a decent price on one!

        You the man rajat thank you! :) Just a quick question, does buygame2 usually get restocks of out of print games? I noticed that on many of them it said "restock soon." I was under the impression they couldn't get those anymore.

        I think they do get restocks when all the others do, all in stock items are shipped timely

      Got back into playing World of Final Fantasy. Even with the compression the game still is a true tribute to what the Vita is capable of.

        Not really much to it. It mostly revolves around picking cards and hoping your opponent's pick is a weaker card than yourself. How it does it though is very confusing, and the game doesn't really explain itself well.

        All three are great, though a number of people weren't super happy with Zero Time Dilemma (I feel the issues were probably due to time constraints developing it, though the game almost wasn't made). It's hands down my favorite gaming series though!

        DojoDan Vita_Girl Axeru777 - It's a shooter, platformer and action game all rolled into one. Even has some mini games added to spice things up. Lots of fun for a license game, and cel shaded visuals are very impressive for Vita. Honestly, I was shocked at how much I ended up enjoying this game. shadowman said it perfectly too. :)

      I can't tell you guys how nice it is to finally see new members on this site. It acually makes the Chinese spam worth it!

        Just googled it, and I see it has some history! Never came across it before very recently, curiously enough.

        Welcome to Vita Island! The place I hope none of us ever get rescued from.

        The_stats_guy for certain for certain! For people outside statistics random and equally likely is somewhat synonymous I guess but I get what you mean. It's interesting however that the chances are this high :)
