The only dedicated Vita magazine has come to a end. The Vita Lounge has officially discontinued publication of The Vita Mag and is also discontinuing publishing current Vita news on their site.

Rather sad to see this happen, though must confess I never supported their magazine due to the horrific international postage costs. Well, I did just order one of every issue they have remaining, which was a meager seven issues. Even at the super deep discounted prices of those issues, the shipping dwarfed the cost of all seven issues! :cry:

And it's always nice to have a physical collectible case for a game, even if the cartridge has never existed.

Since we are on the topic, would like to the input of someone who has beat both Toukiden Kiwami and Toukiden 2.

No spoilers for Toukiden Kiwami below, but tagged just in case

Spoiler


i beat toukiden kiwami, solo all the way threw. than I beat the online missions & did grinding for weapons.
I've played Freedom wars & Ragnarock odyssey ace.
I liked toukiden, game was straight forward, story was a bit scarce but the kiwami part was way better. Good weapon selection, ok character creation, decent story npcs, npc AI was good.
Town was a bit stagnant. stages and enemies do repeat often but that's just a staple of these types of games just like the dynasty warriors genre. I used the ball & sickle mostly.
I would imagine toukiden 2 following the same formula, I'm waiting to see if a kiwami version appears for it thou.

Did you ever look in to their Patreon subscription, or just the site where they sold back issues? Getting issues through Patreon, was probably under $10 shipped if I remember correctly, which wasn't bad.

 

I actually wanted to pledge for years, but I had missed out early on, so I was missing many issues. Then I would always miss their reprints and holidays sales, so I actually just noticed them ending a few weeks back, so I got in like you on what was left. I noticed the high shipping on their site, but I also remembered a post I had read a awhile ago, where it was suggested to a user to contact them directly for a combined shipping on multiple books, as their site doesn't seem to combine normally.

 

It ended up being for a non track-able shipping, but I didn't care about that, as the normal shipping was to high to go with, even at the discounted issue prices. Most things I get from overseas are shipped with no tracking, so it wasn't a big deal. And while the Vita Lounge has ended, they have started the SwitchPlayer, which is also on Patreon. https://www.patreon.com/switchplayer

 

As of a few weeks ago, they offered back issues 1, 2 and 3 in a bundle package which I bought, and now I'm pledge, so I will get issue 4 and whatever comes after for $9 per issue shipped. So for now, I'm looking forward to the Vita Lounge issues I have coming, plus the Switch Player issues as well.

For the first time ever, I have a complete NA Vita collection in my possession. I got my copy of Risk of Rain after only a week compared with the normal 2 weeks.

Congratulations! I'm close, but not there yet. Five games shy at moment, will be six games shy on Tuesday.

 

Having serious automotive issues at this time, so not sure when I'll pick up the missed releases.

Amazon has it matched, but if you order from them you'll probably have to unwrap it. Thank goodness GS is here to save us time by opening new games for us.

Curious. If there are so few available in general, meaning MAYBE one per store, do you want the store to put a sealed copy on the floor so it can be stolen or do you want to be able to buy it?

Actually, it would be far wiser for them to put a laminated print-out card on the shelf for display, as this would present no real risk of theft, and also wouldn't require the opening of a new copy. But that would make sense, and this is GameStop we're talking about, where sense and customer service always take a back-seat to profit.

 

It's pointless to attempt to defend GameStop's policies. There are plenty of ways that they could improve their stores and their approach to retail, but they are unwilling to pursue any of them because they would all cost extra money. Even simple solutions like the one I provided would cost more than zero dollars and require some degree of employee training, so they don't bother. GameStop is an extremely lazy, profit-focused company that has always coasted on exploiting another industry. And I'm still bitter about them buying up and destroying all of the second-hand game stores in my area that weren't crappy.

I certainly agree with you! And for the record I'm not defending their policies (who in their right mind would?!?), I'm just offering a reason as to why they do it. I don't want to be vilified unnecessarily. :-D

Amazon, yes, however this game is showing up on their website as "Unable to be shipped to the United States" which would imply that there is a license holder for physical release of this title somewhere in R1... LRG a good possibility.

I actually inquired about this not to long ago, as FuturLabs mentioned a US version when this was announced I believe, but there has been no mention since. So as far as was posted here, it's still coming, but I haven't seen any other confirmations. 

 

I was looking to import as well, but only if a US version is not happening, which there has been updates either way.

I need Gamestop to use GameTrust and publish more games like Song of the Deep and Duke Nukem Anniversary.

Velocity 2X is getting a US release as well. I think they just haven't confirmed the retailers who will sell it yet.

I'm hoping this is OK to ask here:

 

I'm getting a Vita Slim mainly for remote play, and I'm looking at the options for grips. My concern is that I have small hands, and some of the grips look bulky. The best looking one I've been able to find is the HORI L2 / R2 / L3 / R3 grip (Amazon). Is there anyone who has smaller hands that would be able to offer any input on the grip? Is it comfortable for 30mins + of play?

 

Thank you in advance :D

That HORI is probably the best to go with. I use it myself, and at first it took some getting used to; but after I became accustomed to using it, it was great for Remote Play and it was pretty comfortable. I routinely can play for hours using it, so I don't think you would have a problem with long playing sessions.
