I was wondering when they'd announce their next otome. My wife keeps asking me if there have been any updates on the Code Realize fandisc (she really enjoyed the original game), but I think Hakuoki was another one of her favorites.

Probably not. If the package only contained Minecraft used code, then maybe buy a lottery ticket because your luck may change for the better.

Just tried remote play for Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash today... I assume I need to beef up my local WIFI in some way. But it was blurry, artifacting, and eventually cut out when I was streaming netflix to a different device. My wifi is pretty fucking decent. But this didn't compare to my smooth, clear remote play experience on X1. Using a Linksys E4200. No network cables invloved in either of these experiences. Any ideas on what I should look for. I wasn't originally planning on using the remote play feature, but I've found it to be useful for grinding while getting other things done.

 

You might try remote play on a computer to see if it's the wifi connection of the Vita.  Laptop usually have better wifi than Vita. The wifi on Vita isn't that great I would say, the PSTV's wifi is even worse.

 

I have PS4 in living room, wired to router. The PSTV in my bedroom on wifi very often refuse to do remote play, I have that fixed using wired connection with powerline  adapter. The Vita works better than PSTV, can do it without issue at a little farther distance.

Just when we we're hoping for release dates on already announced games from LRG, we got this instead.

You may see a few, but I don't think most places have large enough inventory to even bother. The Vita is dead to most retailers, and BF deals or normally to get rid of non moving stock, or to get people in the door for other items. I don't see the Vita doing either for anyone, so I'm not expecting tons of deals.

 

EDIT: And if when when they do happen, you'll need to be at the right place, at the right time. As most stock is very low, and the deals go lightning fast.

I'm going to say no.
Best bet would be possibly gamestop having a vita game on sale & amazon matching them if they do.

I would agree with this - Gamestop and Amazon would be the best bets.  I would even add in the NISA and Aksys websites since they usually run BF deals and are pretty active Vita publishers.  Best Buy carries a fair number of Vita games but never seems to put them on sale.  In fact, they rarely go to clearance anymore.

Only thing for Vita would be the usual buy 2 get 1 free used games thing at Gamestop. For new games....Gamestop may have a few (like they did a year or two for Freedom Wars), but honestly most of the new titles are so niche that they wont be that cheap because they don't have as many copies floating around.

Black Friday doubful for any Vita specific sales. Past several years now GameSlop has regularly held a "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" used products sale, which of course includes Vita systems, accessories, and games. Aksys Games tends to put virtually all of their inventory on sale on Black Friday.

 

Aksys Games never seems to have inventory issues as far as ample quantities being available to supply demand during their sale. But make sure you're ordering enough to qualify for free shipping as otherwise shipping is charged at actual calculated rate via USPS PRiority Mail and is rather high. Last year I padded my order from them with deeply discounted PSP games as adding a couple of $9.99 PSP games only made my order a few dollars more than if I had not gotten them and paid for the shipping. Aksys Games Webstore: https://store.aksysgames.com/

Last couple of years now Nippon Ichi Software America (NISA) has held Cyber Monday sales through their online store, which has included Vita games. Likewise, Limited Run Games (LRG) held a special sale last year, but not through their website, rather through their forum and was subject to first come first serve in responding to their sale postings through private messaging. No idea is LRG will do that again this year and if so if they will again use the chaotic private messaging method or actually make the items available through their webstore as one should hope they would do.

 

Items in the NISA sale tend to sell out lightning fast as it is literally the remainder inventory of limited and collector's editions they'd been holding back to replace lost or damaged deliveries, and in some instances they've even notated in the sale listings you may receive product which had been returned by another customer due to packaging having been damaged in shipping.But NISA has had lots of Vita releases so far this year, so should be a good selection if you can be online at midnight Pacific Standard Time to catch when the deals go live. Definitely sign up for their e-mail newsletter if you want to have a couple days heads up as to when their sale will begin this year. Again, try to order enough to qualify for free shipping elsewise they too charge calculated shipping to you using USPS Priority Mail. NISA Webstore: https://store.nisamerica.com/

 

 

NISA Online Store is happy to offer free shipping options to all of our domestic customers (customers who live within the United States and it's territories) who place orders of more than $75.00! Free Shipping methods will vary depending on the weight or contents of your order. The following is a breakdown of the free shipping methods we offer:
 

  • Orders Under 13 oz: USPS Standard First Class
  • Orders 13oz and above: USPS Priority
  • All Anime-Only orders: USPS Media Mail

** All free shipping methods come with tracking information.

Many developers have been doing this for a few years now. The PS4 has become so mainstream that they just don't care about making one for the Vita or an exclusive game for the Vita. The PS4 is the go to when they make games as I guess it's easier and many people have a PS4. Another thing is you can remote play from the Vita if you have a PS4 copy. Not happy about that since many Vita exclusives have now been ported to PS4 but those that have a Vita really can't do much about it. Limited Run Games have both copies of a game on PS4 and Vita which is confusing as why don't they just make an exclusive PS4 or Vita game instead or one or the other. Only games that will be successful will get a Vita version.

Is there going to be any deals on BF for vita games?

Last year on Black Friday, I posted a deal from Jet.com for 30% off any order. The site had a lot of Vita CEs and Vita games back then. I haven't checked, but there could still be a pretty good stock of Vita games, and with the discount the prices were pretty good. So maybe look out for that.

As much as I would hope for that, dont see it happening since they are now Wal Mart and past that "burn thru start up money so that people know who we are" phase.

Mathematically Correct.

The strategy of LRG is simple, they just need to have a small group of people to buy to break even and any more is profit. I have a friend did book publishing before, he said he only needed to sell 5000 copies to break even, so he specialized in publishing books of odd topics. There is always some special interest group and they will buy whatever they're offered because they have very few choices.

 

Vita community is such kind of group. LRG targets this small group of collectors and they can safely break even and then make profit. The publishing cost is relative low as the developers will be very willing to sell them the Vita version license at relative lower cost.

You know, I seriously have to question why a 2D 32-bit pixel-graphic styled game couldn't be made to work on the Vita after four years of development time. Is it lazy programming? Inexperienced coders? Or they got handed a check and a go ahead from Nintendo to drop Vita and develop it for the Switch instead? I'm thinking the latter, but that's just what my gut instinct is telling me.

 

Truthfully, it was one of those games that honestly didn't sound all that appealing to me despite being of the Sci-Fi adventure genre. But if I think about context of what has been revealed about the game's story and plot elements over the years, the Switch probably does already have a larger target market consumer base established that the game would appeal more to.

 

Still sad it won't be coming to the Vita for whatever reason. It's a game I know several forum members on another site I frequent have been looking forward to and are rather, rightfully, upset over the countless completion delays. Also feel sorry for everyone who backed it for the Vita version who've effectively been ripped off.

 

 

As much as I would hope for that, dont see it happening since they are now Wal Mart and past that "burn thru start up money so that people know who we are" phase.

Yeah, the consistent promos Jet.com had been running are overwith. Like TooPoor has said, Wal*Mart bought Jet.com and it's effectively just a mirror of WalMart.com now for shoppers who don't want to admit they shop at Wal-Mart. All of the Vita game base prices on the site shot up to match or even exceed the prices on WalMart.com after the buyout was finalized a few months back, which is not to say they were cheaper than WalMart.com to begin with, but those crazy good discount offers Jet.com kept running made for lots of good deals.

I'm thinking the latter, but that's just what my gut instinct is telling me.

It comes down the the likely hood of what's going to make more money in the end. I didn't know about this game, but I'm always for more Vita love, but sometimes it's not worth the time. 4 years is a long time for anything really, and at the start, I'm sure their intentions where true, but considering most places no longer carry Vita games in stores, a physical or digital version of a game like this would be very limited.

 

To do it for the NS, it's just starting out, so even if it doesn't do well at the start, there is plenty of time to see it improve. At this point, the Vita would be hit or miss, depending on the quality of the game, and unless it's very well received, their unlikely to see a return on the Vita side of the equation.

 

So far of the the games I have backed, they have kept true to the Vita versions, but I've seen many Wii U titles fall off, and it was a completely understandable decision. For a company to do the same for the Vita, I can't really fault them. I'm still hoping Bloodstained still makes it for the Vita, but if it gets cancelled, I won't be surprised. And if it does, I'll probably just get a refund. No harm, no foul.

They are releasing ROM on XBox One and even mobile phone.  The engine they used is just too hard to port to Vita.
