Dang, Super Hydorah for Vita is an awesome game but boy is it tough! I'm having trouble getting past the second level. Oct 17, 2018 at 7:23 AM

      Playing Gun Gun Pixies. Man this game is really unique on the Vita, great controls too. Can't stop laughing at some of the subject matter.

        DojoDan - I'm on chapter 3 and the framerate has been nice and smooth so far. The camera yes, it can be problematic sometimes. Like when you duck behind a desk it will stay stuck on whatever position it's currently in. Sometimes not letting you see what's up ahead of you.

        That sounds promising, thanks for that. I don't mind some issues. I was initially really looking forward to it so I'll definitely put it on my list now.

        Noice! It’s good to see the Vita hanging in there as strongly as it can before the cancerous gaming industry snuffs it out for good. Now all we have to look forward to is 4K HDR home console gaming plagued with loot boxes, micro-transactions, and always online single player! Nintendo is the last hold-out with Switch! Don’t fail me, Red Team! Plz!!! :)

        We truly are internet brothers Zods, as I didn't like the PSP much either. Games were good, just hated those UMDs.

        zodaex Retro8bit I like PSP games (never had problems with UMD's) but I rarely play them on a PSP itself because it has a horrible joystick placement.

        All games that don't use the joystick play fine, but otherwise it's too cramped no matter if you have small or bigger hands. (mine are smaller, but I only have issues with PSP)

        Oh don't get me wrong, I am by no means bashing the PSP. It's game line up was superb. I just hated the media for it. Those UMDs were just way too fragile for an on the go portable. Many of the disk shells split on me. Maybe I was too rough on them or something.

        And yeah you're definitely right about the joystick, glad they fixed that with the Vita.

        Retro8bit, Neither of them unfortunately. I'm not really a Horror enthusiast with exceptions of Zombies and Gothic, I kinda like those.
        I even have a plan on getting "School Girl/Zombie Hunter" later.

        "Persona 5" is currently the closest I found which I probably start as we draw closer to the Halloween later on. Maybe "Date A Live" also? with all those "Spirits" around, especially "Nightmare" :D

        "the company doesn’t have any concrete plans to take on Nintendo Co.’s Switch.", what i understand from this is that they are watching the switch sales ("House says he hasn’t seen any signs of the Switch having an impact on Sony’s sales"), so ps4 declining and switch incresing seems to be the changing point

        Retro8bit, the game looks interesting ish enough, but I’m just not sure if I’m fully sold on committing to the purchase is all, tho. That’s why I said I’m so-so on interest / hype level.

        Also, I stashed a little monies off to the side for Fangamer physical release of Undertale. Im on a very limited gaming budget these days, thanks to Hurricane Harvey. :(

        If you closed your prime membership already, then I'd keep a close eye on what happens to the invoice of games that haven't shipped by then - right now, you'll see something to the side that says 'prime savings'. My thinking is that the way these things work, the minute your prime account isn't active, that part will probably disappear.

        I suspect they may be confusing 'free prime shipping', which remains -free- after your account expires, with the 'prime savings' for video games.
