    For certain! I'm fairly young, but we used to have a NES hooked up to a slightly nicer looking, but similar size TV as Retro8bit his. I suddenly remember so vividly that one time I told my friends I was sick and I couldn't go out to play football with them, and instead I went and locked myself up in the computer room to play Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES the whole day. Good times? Yeah, good times. :D

    A slightly more recent memory with practically that TV was in high school playing 4 player split screen Call of Duty on such a TV. It's terrible at first, but after a little while you don't even realize how small the screen is anymore. Playing at someone else's place on a huge flatscreen afterwards felt like a whole new world opened though.

    Ugh, you guys getting me sentimental while I am procrastinating work...

    Retro8bit Your nostalgia counterattack is not very effective!

    I must've been playing the NES between '99 and '02 or something, so I never really saw those commercials xD

    Today, we are all gathered here to witness the end of Vita_girl. We shall wish her goodbye. But fear not, for it is also the birth of... Switch_girl!!

    How does that work, like, governmentally? Do you apply for a name change every new (portable) console or does your ID say: *current console*_girl?

    Yeah... Sorry.

    You forgot the possibility that the handle pre-dares the vita and she’s actually life_girl =p

    The plot thickens!

    Maybe, being life_girl/vita_girl, she was drawn naturally to the Vita's lively community. It was not the console that named her, but her name that chose the console!

    Where will this story go next? Read that next time in Urban Vita: Legends and Myths in the Vita Community!! (the double exclamation mark is a reference to the strong Japanese market and their tendency to double "!" stuff)

    Edit: would it be a metagame if we made that into a VN?

    Lol :p

    I guess if I had to change my name by my addiction it would be pc_handheld_cherry_cola_and_noodles_addict_girl :D

    I won't change my name even if I would make an account on Switch Player for example, the point is that in the end my nickname on this forum is an ode to the Vita because I've always been a PC and handheld gamer but the Vita made me discover so many games and genres I would never try before.

    Switch wise the chance is very small I would give it more love than the Vita got from me, I don't see myself buying again 100+ physical games for another system (well PC is a different story, but games are way cheaper on that platform).

    I got the Switch purely because of the upcoming Pokémon game (the 2019 one) and Monster Hunter Generation Ultimate, the other games I've got are more because "I already got a Switch so why not".

    Games wise except Nintendo games I will probably buy games on the Switch that would fit the Vita but didn't came out on it for whatever the reason may be, but the Vita will still be "that handheld" that learned me how much other fun games are out there I would never try without having that little handheld, and I will keep supporting it as much I can :)

    That is probably exactly my stance on the Switch as well. We are taking it easy with getting the money for the Switch though, now that the next core pokemon RPG will come only next year.

    Had a pretty mixed bag of purchases over the last couple weeks

    [​IMG]

    Since Aksys decided to go dark on releasing the Otome games in the EU I gave up and just bought the US versions, fingers crossed I dont have to re-buy, Ragnarok is one of the few games on my to buy list I have left. Agents of mayhem was £3, its actually not all that bad...at least for £3. Hexyz Force is supposedly a super hard to get PSP game but VGP did reprints so thought I'd grab one while they have it. Owlboy is great so far, been playing it all weekend.

    [​IMG]

    Then when I went into B&Q to get paint to finish off my decorating they had Hue lights on clearance...so guess I know how I'm doing my new shelf lighting now =D

    That's a nice purchase!!

    You really think Aksys will stop doing EU physicals for those? :(

    All I know is they have made no contact with either the fans or distributors about an EU release outside of that one cryptic tweet. I got told by bazaar-bazaar it would be dependant on demand and they would be looking into it but they’ve not heard back either so it’s not looking too promising. Since I’ve nearly got my full set now I didn’t wanna be caught out struggling to find the games at a decent price after it turns out they were never even coming out.

    Aksys’s Twitter is good if you want to see nonsense shitposts but that’s it

    Yeah, my wife freaked out a little after seeing that nedgame has no stock anymore for the US import of 7'scarlet, so I went ahead and ordered them off of 365games as well. At least we can have them now!

    If they are still going to do EU physicals now then the lack of demand is their own fault entirely.

    Exactly, they had multiple people asking them on every tweet and didn't once acknowledge a single one of them. I tried tweeting them, emailing them, facebook and even getting bazaar-bazaar to press them and nothing. Its shocking customer service really but they clearly just don't care so not much to be done about it
