I have to disagree with the mediocre reviews Tokyo Xanadu's been getting. It's actually a pretty solid game. Jul 4, 2017

        I found my 40 hours with xanadu quite fun. Only real complaint are lackluster dungeons.

        *Nods**Nods**Nods*, and Persona 4: Golden further add to those greatness.

        Always loved Personas Music. "I'll Face Myself" & "SNOWFLAKES" are some of my favourites :D

        I've been putting buying her on-hold up until now. I like IA but most vocaladoid- pop isn't really my jam. hopefully her initial print ver. will still be available by the time I decide to buy her.

        One of the things I loved about IA is how much more forgiving it was, and thus more enjoyable for me. Those Vocaloid games are great too, but they kick my butt like no tomorrow.

        I was able to more or less get it straightened out for the latest Vita Miku game (50% refund). And for Puyo Tetris I just returned it for a full refund and bought it locally where I knew they had copies with the bonus still. The other two I didn't realize they were suppose to come with anything when I bought them.

        Yeah the only downside with online pre-orders , is getting the game late. Sadly I don't want to support gamestop but its the best option where I live because Bestbuy, Walmart and Target don't take care of their games like Gamestop does. Neither do they have the stock or shipping care.

        Not to mention that the Vita isn't even sold at those places much anymore (if at all). So Gamestop is pretty much the only place left to buy new release Vita titles at a brick and mortar store. Which is still my preferred method.

        I have a feeling we will see a Joy Con released with a regular D Pad later. I don't think this current one was an attempt to revolutionize it. The reason it doesn't have a standard D Pad is so that when you use the Joy Cons as two controllers each person has an analog stick and 6 button controller. It is weird to use it as a D Pad, but works well as intended. I do hope we see the D Pad Joy Con though.

        To be fair they may shut it down completly for me, PS Now is overpriced and in my country it wasn't even available for the Vita at all (PS4 and PC only).
        I think they don't earn enough for it, wouldn't be suprised if PS Now would end like Eye Toy, PSP Go, PS Vita, PS TV and PS Move (in first place) for Sony, Sony kills what doesn't earn them quick cash, PS VR could be next because that one is struggling.
