    Received my copy of Vasara Collection in the mail today. A bit disappointed that the postcard has a horrible crease in it, odd since the package has no damage.


    I played and beat "Bullet Girls", "Gal*Gun: Double Peace: Bilingual Edition", and "Gun Gun Pixies". All three are great games, though will say that specific Japan release of Gal*Gun is playable in English. Phantasy Star Nova I haven't gotten back around to diving to deeply into, I played it maybe an hour the day it arrived and it just made me terribly nostalgic for PSO.

    Bought Metal Max new on Amazon.co.jp for about 2,700yen. Which is great, as it's selling as high as 4000+ 2nd hand in some shops.

    Saw the red vita console full boxed, working, no damage for 7000yen. Never owned a red one, other than to resell, so technically my first of this colour. Thinking to set up a Japanese account on it and start downloading games via the Japanese shop OR hack it, but I haven't a clue if it's safe, or if I can easily get PS1 games, etc, working on it easily(?)

    This arrived in the mail yesterday... (images are big so I've put them in spoiler tags)
    Both trading cards arrived with banged up corners, making this now the second consecutive Vita game shipment in a row I've received from LRG with damaged trading cards. And as is apparent, the insert tray that holds all the stuff inside of the box is literally damaged from the weight of the contents, it's made from very flimsy cardstock that looks to be about the same thickness as a typical business card. Design of said insert was good, but they needed to use thin corrugated cardboard, not cardstock. Got to figure I'm not more than over two-hundred miles away from LRG, and the weight of the 6 CD Soundtrack shifting around in transit did that to the internal CE insert in relatively short distance. Some of you more distant folk might receive your copies with the insert tray in really poor condition. But frankly I'm more upset about the damaged trading cards as these are really cool to view in person, the Fata Morgana card has a laser-holo effect going on, and the London Detective card is a foil card, but three corners are damaged on the Fata card and all four corners are damaged on the London card! Previous LRG card to arrive damaged was the Metal Slug 3 card, with a partial vertical bend in the middle. :(

    Bought a serious number of Vita games for the main purpose of selling them on. Will play through each game a little whilst I wait for them to sell. Might keep one or two of them if I like them enough.

    Anyone interested in these games, I'll be selling most of them for about £4 - £7 each.

    Sad to hear about the damage on your extras. My London soundtrack also arrived cracked because for some reason, LRG didn't use the soundtrack cardboard support they normally use for soundtracks, and I remember a similar damage happened to my Nurse Love Addiction CE insert. Let's hope LRG improves on the CE fillings and inserts for their future CEs :(

    My personal pet peeve with the Fata Morgana CE is that I was actually expecting a hardcover artbook (like the original The Art Fata Morgana artbook sold by Novetacle) from the LRG pictures, but it's more of my own fault for not confirming this...

    Completely forgot these games released on the Vita. I'm not a fan of rhythm games, but I quite enjoyed P4's Dancing All Night.

    It's a LOOOONG time ago I got any Vita games, had to upgrade my PC (life of a PC/handheld gamer in a nutshell) so I didn't really have the time or the budget for games (it was a full PC upgrade)

    However I could not let SAO slip by me with that reprint, I made that mistake before when it launched (same goes for Miku but that's Switch)

    As for that Taiko spin off, found it by accident in great shape used now I need the Blue Songs one

    I didn't buy a game, but I bought the "Art of Magic", which is the artbook for Soul Sacrifice.

    I downloaded Dead or Alive 5. I actually reviewed the game for this site many years back, but eventually sold off the copy. Recently got into DOA6 and was pining for some DOA on the go. This'll do.
    Only problem is that it doesn't have Mari and Honoka. Perhaps one or two other characters also. Still impressed with how the game runs though.
