There are much better musou games out there, and you have no attachment to the source material. Given that, I don't see any reason for Fate Extella to be worth your time.

GameStop also dropped Fate/EXTELLA and additionally bumped the Noble Phantasm Edition to $30.

Has anyone played Slain: Back From Hell on Vita? I'm, trying to find out what the frame rate is. I know the consoles and PC run at 60, and I know that the Switch got a patch to upgrade it to 60, but I just can't find any solid information on the Vita version's performance!


I played it on PS4 first and then switched to vita. It felt much smoother on PS4 so I'm gonna have to guess that it runs at 30 fps on vita.

Cosmic Star Heroine...  It's been so long I'm not sure I even want it anymore.   I'll go watch a youtube review and read the steam user reviews.   I guess this means maybe March we'll get the LRG preorder to go on sale?

Yeah, CSH is still at the top of my LRG want list, and the delay didn't change that. Axiom Verge for the Vita was delayed almost a year to the day after the PS4 version, and that wait was worth it. If I had the PS4, I would have gotten it there and been done, probably the same for CSH, but a game delayed is all good. As I have more than enough games to play, many of which are PS3/360/3DS/Vita titles, so I'm almost never in a rush for current releases.

CSH was on my list until after it came out.   After watching a video review and reading some reviews today, I remember why I let it pop out of my memory/hype-list... it's fairly linear.  I'm not a fan of linear rpgs.  I've bought, tried to play, and ultimately got bored and quit enough linear rpg's to know they aren't my thing.  I like open worlds and going at my own pace.

 

So it'll be an easy pass for me when it finally comes out, but I also watched a few Golf Story reviews and I gotta say that's something I'm likely to pick up.

The linear RPG's are probably the only ones I know, as I've probably only finished maybe 5 RPG's in my life. One of which would be Phantasy Star, which CSH seems to borrow heavily from, so I'm looking forward to it for that reason alone. I'm also not a HUGE investor of time, when it comes to games, so that also plays in to my lack of RPG overall gaming time.

 

Yeah, I've been interested in Gold Story since I first saw it, and will buy that one to if ever released, or officially announced for that matter.

Heads up, price is likely to spike once Aksys is officially sold out. Price has already spiked on Period Cube just since they sold out of it about a months ago.

Key is for those VNs...just get them around release. I'm sure the newer ones (ashen ones and other one) will maybe make it to $29.99 too and then just go OOP. Course if you don't like them it's another story.

I can't speak to refurbished, as I barely buy new from GS, refurbed seems like asking for trouble. LOL

 

Pre-owned is like any trade in item, it could be all most new and 100% complete, or beat to shit and barely working. GS is supposed to not take in items to bad off, but that's left to employee discretion, so yeah........don't expect much from them. Systems are just like the games, as they come from customers. so the best to do is ask and inspect before hand. They should allow you to plug it up and test the screen and system functions. No matter what, I believe you have 7 or 10 days to return pre-owned items, so use that time to check the smaller details as well once you get home.

 

I'm sure "refurbished" is supposed to meet some level of standard, but I can't say for sure what that list is, or if GS actually follows it?

I bought three "Refurbished" Vitas from GS back in 2015? (or was it 2016?) as Christmas gifts for my niece and two of the nephews. No complaints from me, they had clearly replaced the facia of all three systems, as they had peel off protective plastic on them when they arrived that I had to peel off to apply the screen protectors, and not a single scratch was present anywhere on the screens. Batteries may have also been replaced as they all held a good charge.

That sounds great, and is what a proper "refurbished" item should be, pretty much returned to like new and all proper specs are met, as they would have been when originally offered.

Of course the game I wanted (Criminal Girls 2) is out of stock online and around me. Hoping it pops back up online eventually.

Just locked in my licenses for the PS+ games for the month and went to download 99Vidas and Q*Bert and noticed there's no direct download from the website to vita anymore.  How inconvenient.

...On the one hand, I want God Wars at that price.  On the other, I could just wait and get the "complete" version for Switch later this year...

And I already have a bunch of backlog games to get through, so it's not like I'd be playing it anytime soon anyway.

I think God Wars should be patched complete for the Vita eventually, so choose your poison.

Thanks for bringing this up. I wouldn't have noticed all the God Wars DLC is free otherwise.

And this is why I find it worth ponying up a little extra to get a brand new unit. Used systems from Japan also tend to be in extremely good condition most of the time. It's almost like people in Japan actually take care of their stuff.
