I bought 
 

1 of: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale [Video Game] 
Condition: New
Sold by: Amazon.com LLC
$9.99
 
1 of: Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time - PlayStation Vita [Video Game] 
Condition: New
Sold by: Amazon.com LLC
$9.99
 
1 of: Unit 13 - PlayStation Vita [Video Game] 
Condition: New
Sold by: Amazon.com LLC
$9.99
 
1 of: Resistance: Burning Skies - PlayStation Vita [Video Game] 
Condition: New
Sold by: Amazon.com LLC
$9.99
 
Last week. Also saw ModNation Racers, Gravity Rush, Little Big Planet at $9.99

 

Just because they're cheap does NOT mean you need to buy. The only actually good game in that lot is Sly Cooper. All-Stars is "OK" and Unit 13 was OK when it came out (so not worth playing these days, though). And Resistance is utter crap.

Agreed, one of the best games on the Vita. It's a shame it doesn't run at native res, but it's a top game nonetheless.

Thanks...should I return sonic? I thought u read somewhere the games actually load better/faster from cartridge than from memory.

Borderlands 2 comes to PS3 tomorrow btw. Also Spelunky on sale for PS+ members at 3.75 tomorrow, that's a must-grab if you don't have it.

So Resistance sucks? I just renewed my power up rewards and was going to include that in my B2G1 free coupon...funny enough along with Unit 13 and something else.

I would, especially if you have 2 years of PS+. Not like it's going anywhere.

 

As for the game itself...I haven't played it on Vita, but on PC it's amazing and a portable version will be really nice. From all reports I've seen it's a good port as well.

Those games are just OK.
Also, the Battle Royale game PS3 version was 9.99 on BF weekend and it comes w. the digital copy for the vita for free.

 

Good games: ACIII, Uncharted, hotline miami, NFSMW, Gravity Rush (a mustttt have), MK, MLB the show, FIFA, and many others.


I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

I think I might pick up Spelunky for my Vita.  Looks like a game that would work very well with a Vita and maybe something my wife would enjoy playing.  Reminds me a bit (the little I have read anyway) of 1980s video games.

 

I have the $10 they gave with the PS4 so it is like a free game.

Both game have a demo on PSN, i tried both, Resistance look like a Ok shooter, nothing out of this world, Unit 13 on the other hand look nice but don't manage to hold my interest.

I'm sure it's been less, but can't find it lower now. It was also free on PS+ earlier this year.

considering picking up gravity rush, how good is it?  I can't trust critic sites because they're always biased.  I tend to generally agree with overall CAG opinion on games so what are people's thoughts?  I only have tearaway right now and kz for my vita as far as physical copies go.  I bought PSBAS and Sly for ps3 so I have digital copies of those.  Waiting for my $30 PS+ cards to come in before I can get Uncharted.

 

Can I wait on this or is $19.99 a good price to bite on this title?  I have GCU too so I can get it for a little less than $18 after tax

I enjoyed the single player for the 12 dollars I spent. The story is basically find and save your family, and I actually REALLY wanted to find/save them. haven't played the multi because of the online pass.

for the life of me I can't understand why it was so badly received. I think it was a case of "it's not the vita's killer game, so thus it sucks." that tends to happen on the system.

I played the multiplayer and it is ok at best. For some this may not be a big deal, but for me, the sound effects in the multi-player mode is horrible. It sounds like an atari game.

Heads up, don't bother ordering Hot shots golf from Att. The system will let you place the order even though it's not in stock. The real kicker is that they have no idea when they will get more stock and will not let you cancel.

I was going to pull the trigger on Hot Shots Golf but then the IGN review turned me off. It did bring back the memories of the frustrations from the PSP version from years ago. Pass for me.

http://www.ign.com/a...tational-review


I do read IGN for reviews sometimes, but I also go by the overall metacritic score for games.

http://www.metacriti.../critic-reviews

Sometimes I ignore metacritic scores altogether. Batman blakgate on the vita is more fun than the critics say it is. I'm happy I ignored critic reviews for that one.

Unit 13 is pretty awesome. It's a very well made 3rd person cover shooter with only a few things that take away from being a great game. First there's no online adversarial gameplay which isn't a deal breaker but stumps most people because it would easily be the Vita's Rainbow Six Vegas style game. Other than that instead of story mode there are a set of 45 missions you can choose from that become unlocked as you complete other missions. It takes some skill to get 5 stars in these missions so if you like a challenge it'll be a nice buy. Co-op multiplayer is those same missions just with another person. Overall it's well worth the money for a great cover shooter.

Gravity Rush is a 10/10....for gameplay. I never found myself bored in the game because the mechanics are simply fun to use. There's secret bosses to seek out, tons of gems (think Crackdown) and lots of unique challenges and interesting side bits along the way. Story wisehowever for me the game gets a 7/10. 

 

3/4's through the game you're generally interested in finding out whats going to happen, who certain characters are and what exactly is up with the world in general. At the end of the game the devs just through out a climax and said "here ya go!" though. Leaving many things to be unanswered or just kinda ignored. Fun is fun though, I loved the game. Still waiting on the DLC to go on sale.

I tend to agree with most of IGN's reviews. I don't know why they get all the hate they do. I've always figured it was subjective fans of certain games that couldn't see the real criticisms.

 

I could probably count less than a handful of times that IGN's reviewer totally missed the mark on a game that I loved and they scored to stay away from. Remember, just because a game is a 6 or 7 doesn't mean that it is trash not worth playing. People forget that about IGN's scale.

Thanks for the input, is there replayability to it?  I tend to like physical copies of games just in case if I ever wanna go back and revisit so that I don't have to keep it on my mem card and use it for other things.

When I first bought it for $20 several months ago, I thought it was a waste. I thought the graphics and sound were bad as were the controls. I just fired it up last week planning to burn through it. Now I'm finding it to look quite good and play real well. Maybe Golden Abyss spoiled me beforehand, or maybe it was the fact that that this time around I turned up the difficulty to hard and left the control options alone, making the game feel a lot more gratifying and smoother playing than I remembered. I can easily recommend picking up the game for $10. The game does have some dumb AI, but everything else is pretty good.

 

Unit 13, is worth $10 easily if you're looking for something to playing in small chunks. I haven't progressed too much into the game but it has a lot going for it if somebody is looking for a challenging arcade shooter. It plays smoothly and looks pretty good.

Sadly for most people it doesn't. Ive been craving some Grav Rush action for awhile now but aside from the DLC there's no real reason to go back. Basically if you platinum the game (which is all fun stuff and gives you more ability upgrades anyway) you won't have any reason to return later. Even going as far as the DLC i've heard it's more random quests to do (nothing story or major in anyway) and about 3 hours of gameplay for each.

So I am still looking for that one game with lots of replay value to leave in my Vita's card slot.  I was going to buy Sonic Transformed but since I have 2+ years left on my PSN+ subscription that game is now off my purchase list.  Any recommendations (even if the game hasn't made it to the cheap list yet)?  I have been on plus since they added free Vita games so I have all of those possibilities.  I bought my Vita a year ago and that empty card slot bugs me.

 

Just for reference these are the games available through PSN+ that Frisky has listed in the PSN thread.  (I know all aren't available in card format and some are PSP games):

Personally I think DJ Max Technika Tune is a good replayable game that I like to leave in the card slot (when I'm not playing retail versions of other games like Tearaway).  it has a lot of replayability and pick up and play appeal.
