      store.iffyseurope.com actually has most of the older vita games for £20 or less. Not amazing deals, but I thought it'd be worth mentioning!

        I got all the games I want from IF/CH already.

        Missed out on all the Limited Edition due to the outrageous shipping (That is if they even ship to my country).

        With my recent purchase I got the last few that I wanted. Local stores sell these games still for the full €40 if not for €50 for whatever reason, so this felt like a steal!

        Honestly, I never really talk about the PSTV with anyone but my wife, and well, we bought it together... xD

        Maybe it's that anything EU kicks it out? EU PSN or EU system?

        Akros, thanks for clarifying that. I was going off the fact that I get advertisements that are linked to the U.S. PSN store on my PSTV, so I apologize if I mis-understood how it works. What i'm super curious about now though, is if you use your JPN account on a NA PSTV, what games are the advertisements for? Are they all for U.S. games that you can't technically buy because it points to the US PSN store?

        Oh but this is a bug. The regular loading screens are a little long (especially in that more there's a lot of waiting), but this I literally left on for 15 minutes giving it time (while I went to complain to my wife about it), still loading.

      Are Gundam Breaker 3, Top Trump and Vegas Party rare? Nedgame has all of them in stock
      1. Vita_Girl
        Vita_Girl
        Regular Gundam Breaker 3 isn't really rare (people call it so because it never came out in the west)

        The other 2 have a low print but almost nobody seems to care about them so they are easy to get.

        But rare doesn't always mean expensive, goes the other way around too.

        (btw GB3 is overpriced at Nedgame like most of their asian imports)

        At least those will make good use of the PS4's processing power to make shit look nice... Mary Skelter 2 is, as far as I've seen, 2D with some low-res cheap-looking 3D environments... The PSX should be able to run this with no gameplay compromises...

        Nice trophy-list you have there TheAtom. Looks like we do share some game-affinity :D. If you don't mind also, I will add you to my PSN friend-list too.

        Seems like it's currently going to be a PS4 only. I'm not sure either why the lack of multi-console, considering this is the Japanese release we are talking about.

        More game to look forward to nonetheless.

        Yep... I really don't get why they're not doing a PS4 version. There's no way they're actually going to make use of the system's power and give us something worthy of the system (save perhaps Full HD 2D art, which I guess isn't possible on the Vita, but... ya know...).

        But that's no problem then, is it? That just means we collectively think Ys VIII is the best game on the Vita, right?

        I think it'll be a cool way to collectively give an answer to all those Vita top game lists that don't go beyond P4, Uncharted, Gravity Rush and Tearaway.

        I got the hiragana and katakana down, pretty much. Some still confuse me from time to time, but it works out. I'm studying kanji (that is, kun-yomi and on-yomi readings as well as always at least one example in context with other kanji) with TenguGo (which uses a randomized quiz and flashcards, basically)

        and I'm getting back into Duolingo with Japanese. When I get further I'm sure I'll try out some manga or simple games. What I like about more recent games though is that it comes with a voice track, and I can often catch a lot from that as well.

        Memrise was actually developed by someone from my research group (though he quit his research because to work on the app. My supervisor's still a little bitter).

        Once you learn, live, eat, sleep nihongo even on an elementary level which surpasses 98% of native English speakers; it'll feel as if you have super powers as an English speaker. Everything I loved as kid now makes sense becuz I'm [casually] learning nihongo. I have to work on kanji and, reading proficiency, vocab and strengthen my grammar. Also Rosetta stone is good BUT you must have a basic understanding

        Retro8bit what about remote play though? I am yet to try it out, but that should work right? Supposedly the reason it's a PS4 exclusive is that it could handle the see-through wetness effect, which imo makes all clothes look like plastic when wet... Give us a vita port without plastic clothes and it's cool.
