      How about a TheVitaLounge compiled top 10 Vita games? Everyone sends in the top 10, and we'll make a combined top 10 out of it!

        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.

        So we just name those games? Or do we need to include reviews as well?

        Also are those "mainstream" games allowed? Cos' I don't think I can leave out P4:G if you ask me what are my favourites.

      Anyone played Genkai Tokki Castle Panzers for the PS4? Opened a thread as well.

        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

        Great game but the community is awful. People tend to think of it as a Call of Duty thing and forget about the team, the key element.

      Reading an article on the Embedded View (EV), and the Standard View (SV). How did they not know that that stands for Estival/Shinovi Versus?

        "SV, just like EV, has to explain why the visual system sometimes uses
        different assumptions to interpret the same visual stimulus." (Orlandi, 2012, p. 567)
        Sure, sure, visuals and vision. But what about the gameplay?

      Bastion is a BLAST! And I love the incredibly easy and seamless switching between PS4 and Vita!

        I'll probably get Transistor if it's on sale once as well. A little shame it's not on the Vita though. Can't say I'm having any issues with Bastion (framerate and all)

        I still need to figure out how to get that working well. I tried it with Senran Kagura but despite sitting right across the PS4, having the modem in the storage space connected to the room I was in, the connection was horrible and it just plain broke off.

        Also doesn't work when the wife wants to play The Witcher 3... xD

        They're both on the way! Together with Blazblue ChronoPhantasma Extend (which was €12 :D), and at some point Sonic & AllStars Racing should get here still... They'd BETTER not announce an Omega Labyrinth LE this month...
        DojoDan I know, but I think my landlord would like to take his rent money with him... Pretty inconsiderate, huh?

        Everything just came in the mail already, my wife told me.

        Snappers... I ordered that last night from the Netherlands, and within that night it already turns up in a different country? This is nuts!

        That's the game that stood out (for me) from the NIS' conference. Description sounds good.

        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.

        The least they could have done is give us a Switch port of PBS. It waa my first PS4 game too.

        I think there are many issues, one being simple marketability. But the Genkai Tokki series, Omega Labyrinth are a few big games that never got here

        its a fun little game isn't it? i got it a while back... need to get back to it and finish it. i even got the japanese copies of moero crystal and seven pirates... but you need to be able to read and understand japanese since there's no english versions, i believe.

        the english version of moero chronicle is surprisingly well translated as far a ive seen. I always laugh at the scenes with the seal that looks like a penis lol

        zodaex I know! I've gotten so used to playing Vita on the go and TV at home I'd forgotten some games weren't compatible...

        benna I know! Except for little character descriptions that are full of typos (yhey instead of they for example) it feels almost like a NA or EU translation.

        I also want to play Crystal and Seven Pairates even more, but I fear it may never happen...
