lol trophy hunters

jk I have 20 platinum trophies but not so much of a completionist anymore


Not really trophy hunting, but unless its a game I REALLY want to play, I hate buying games where I know I'll never have the ability (Or time) to Platinum it.

I'v done Dynasty Warrior games, and am close in a few SRPG's. But 500 hours is just damn insane for a game thats already pretty much dead.

I decided to get SF X Tekken Vita since the character DLC by itself is normally 20 bucks. Also has some extra Vita only modes kind of like the 3DS SF4 port.

Do all copies come with the DLC? I thought I saw some copies at Best Buy without a "12 DLC Characters for PS3" sticker on the front.

Decided to get SFXTekken and used a $5 reward zone coupon to knock it down to 20. Always wanted to buy it

Why though? If you don't care or go after trophies, who cares if you can't platinum it?

No, god no. It's horrible. It's one of the most poorly reviewed Vita games for a good reason.

From the reviews I've read, it's not even worth $5. :\

MK is a must for $9.99

If you play it competitively on consoles, you can play just as competitive on the vita. Its as comfortable as playing with a controller.

And thanks for the input dgwillia006. I'm contemplating on getting ps+ now haha

Thinking hard about MK but I'm sure it will soon land on PSN+. Europe already got it.

Just personal preference. I go for some, I dont go for some. Sometimes I go way in my backlog and finish something, so I prefer not to have a ton of unplatinum-able games in it.

UMvC3 is just an awesome port, plays great and looks great - it's also more forgiving execution wise, but the online community will generally wipe the floor with you if you're not at least somewhat experienced and there's no rage quitting penalties so even if you can win 9 times out of 10 your opponent will bail out. SFxT arguably has more to do but fighting game enthusiasts tend to poop all over it and requires stricter timing overall. There's a boatload of characters to pick from on both so if you don't care about the online you can certainly find someone you like in either roster.

For anyone on the fence about Smart As, I can now recommend it in earnest. I've been playing it tonight and I think it's super - the handwriting recognition is a bit rough but the games are cool and there's local (i.e. based on your location) challenges where you can compete in your neighborhood/city with others. It's a pretty excellent brain training game.


thanks for the info.. any advice as to Silent Hill? that is the other one i am contemplating

I got you.

For $25 it's a buy. That's what the price should have been. It has some good ideas, great style and is unique in it's own way. That said, I'm not a huge fan of grinding, and to have the easiest time with this game, you have to. You'll build a ritual to tackling each area, mine is to hunt for the save room, and immediately save. Then I slowly build my map, then I start gathering my pieces. It's a safe way to go about it, because being reckless will lead to frustration.

But anyway, I got it at launch, don't regret it but it isn't for everyone. But for $25 it is an easy rec. Just know that you will be frustrated at one point or another, and that it is stressful at times. But that's the point, in the old Resident Evil, holy shit I can't save right now/i'm out of items/slots sense.

I prefer single-player games; would I still enjoy Book of Memories (I know there's a single-player mode, but from what gameplay I've seen, I got the sense that it was intended for multiplayer)?

got MK because i've wanted it for a while..
just checked my email and BB emailed me 2 $10 codes for canceling 2 of the $1.99 PSP games on me....

sooooo... SFxTekken or Marvel vs Capcom????????


SFxT.

UMvC3 has amazing graphics, but feels 'floaty'. I like to be like Bam BAM!!!!!! Not like I'm filled with helium. Not sure why I bought that game twice
Spoiler
.

Guess I thought I'd, actually, play it on my Vita.

You saw the wrong gameplay videos. I will try to find the one/s I watched.

Edit:Ok. That's not gonna happen. Lol. The video wasn't from 1 of those obnoxious companies.

I'm tempted to trade my PS3 UMvC3 towards it. Hmmm... Time to check another thread.

Picked up MK Vita and a headset stand. Would have bit on SH at 15, but I have enough vita games for now because of plus.

Thinking about grabbing the Vita Street Fight X Tekken. Does anyone remember exactly what DLC was suppose to come with it? I know there was the 12 extra characters but wasn't there also some costumes or something. All I remember it was also usable on the PS3 and the whole screw up by Capcom on it....which did get fixed right? :lol:

Its fixed for anyone who buys it now and redeems it. Capcom refused to believe mine was glitched out, so I ended up having to just do a copy swap to get a new voucher.

Is COD worth 35?


I picked it up today. The little I've played on the multi-player was pretty fun. I haven't touched the single player, but it does appear to be pretty weak. I think someone with tempered expectations would be happy with it at $35 (assuming you want a multiplayer experience). Yes, it definitely has some shortcomings and could have been better, but if you are comparing this to (and expecting) a console version, you are doing it wrong.

It should be noted that a significant portion (certainly not all of it) of the bad reviews and comments can be attributed to the pre-patch version. There is a 450 MB patch now.

Debating between Fifa 13 and Silent Hill. SH makes more sense since I already own Fifa 13 on 360 but I did enjoy playing the demo of last years Fifa on the Vita so maybe I can bite. $25 isn't as big of a discount as I wanted though. :-(

After reading more about Fifa it seems to be pretty much just a reskin of last years game, so now I have to decide between SH and SFxT haha.

Wanted Marvel vs. Capcom, had a $20 Reward Zone card, could not find anything cheap to bump me over the limit, except for a $2 DS stylus. Although I figure MK is probably going free on Plus soon, it was only $8 more than filler, and I get a physical game.

Well worth it.
I enjoy stuff a great deal.

UMVC3 wasn't even on my Vita radar until this sale. Now I'm contemplating picking it up (probably from Amazon with credit from there, thanks for that tip!) but I have to think if I can pull myself away from Persona 4 long enough to justify buying any more games period.

The nice thing about them just reskinning FIFA 12 Vita is that I can just look for 12 for cheap, since it's already been out for a while (not that it's anywhere close to my price range yet)
