2 Weeks, 48 minutes. Yeah I have 4 days in already, so unless I really pick up the pace, I doubt I'll beat that time. So you win.

Did you already do that hard sniper rifle mission? One where you have to protect a girl or a box or something? If so, that's the hardest one and took me a few tries. Are you playing on Vita or PS3? I was lucky to have both, as some missions are easier on PS3, like that sniper one.

It's a box, and no, I haven't done that one yet. I'm not excited to play it, that's for sure. :headache:

 

I'm playing on PS3, though I also have the Vita version in digital format (bought for $9 on-sale).

The change here is that the Vita store says you can buy it now, which is new. Of course it's also misleading since it implies you can play them as well, which doesn't appear to be the case.

i thought you could always play it on the VITA just needed to download it  though PS3 then vita.    I like it  but would never give 15 for it . maybe 5  tops 

 

sega collection is worth  it   since you get all 3  phantasy stars and can play them on your vita and a few more rpgs

Yeah, that's the worst one, by far. There was another one too, but I can't remember which. I remember being in the tanker, and basically luring every enemy into the room I started at while planting mines in the hallway to take them out as they approached.

Is it just me, or when you look at the below image, is it possible that Chris Pratt could pull of Drake in an Uncharted movie?

The first two are Grannie-only (all CGA Land doors are Grannie-only). For the third, bring the Power Shot and you can get through the barrier.

 

Yes, that's the correct path. You have to time your hover so you don't also get hit by the patrolling Sword Mudd.

Okay, I might be in the market for a vita so I need a little bit of vita insight here. 
 
I was thinking of just going new but the Borderlands bundle is sold out everywhere and ebay prices are through the roof.... when did that happen???  I know a few of you have gone with cowboom and awd... any suggestions?


The cartwheel app for Target has a coupon for 10% off portable gaming hardware. It works on 3DS, 2DS, and Vita. If you have a RedCard, you can get an extra 5% off as well. Also, my Target had plenty of the Bordrlands bundles in stock. Shipwreck was also tweeting that his Target had plenty. Might be worth a shot if you have one near you.

That would be awesome but I've been checking online and they're cleaned out everywhere.  I know they're not always accurate so I'll just have to check things out when I'm in the area.  Thanks for the heads up.

Also remember if you are checking Best Buy online they only report items in stock if they have three or more.  I was just at my local Best Buy this morning and they had two BL2 bundles.

Does terreria get better? I don't get it.


The deeper you get into Terraria the more apparent it becomes how different it is from Minecraft. They only share the mining/crafting and exploration aspects. Terraria is mostly a combat-driven action platformer - one that becomes fairly challenging (for reasons I won't spoil) toward mid-game. It's why I prefer it over Minecraft, but I can understand it not being everyone's cup of tea.

I've showered it with enough praise but to reiterate, this now my MOST played vita game by a wide margin. I love it.

I do wish the developers had made it more accessible to newcomers or people who prefer to play casually. Probably its biggest fault. But the community is fantastic. Using the wikis or resources like GAF and reddit are a must to get the most out of it.

Playing has really highlighted just how fantastic the resume/pause feature on Vita is. Ugh. I wish they'd hurry and implement this on PS4 (I believe X1 already has it). I know I would't have put this much time in without it.

The trophies. The trophies. The trophies. A good portion of them are great, while the others are flatout terrible. It only cements my feelings on why the system is so broken. I'm willing to BET the majority of (if not all) platinum achievers did not obtain it legitmately. There's just no way. But i guess that's a matter of what you feel is 'legitimate'. It sucks when someone like me who's put countless hours into mastering the game appears less capable of 'completing' it than someone who likely put a fourth of the time in. I probably won't be getting the platinum anytime soon (if at all), but I still highly recommend the game for anyone who wants a solid adventure. As for your complaints about the controls/mobility, they greatly improve with upgrades!

Yes...you could play on Vita via PS3 transfer. Which is what I specifically said was different in my original post, that it now shows you can buy from the Vita (which you could not before) and presumably download to the Vita (which you couldn't before.) I'm well aware of the ability to transfer and called that out in my post. -_-

Sega collection would be worth it if it included the games in the PS3 collection. The PSP collection is missing the Shining games, which I would love to be able to play on portable. Since it doesn't have those, no sale for me.

Yea, but that shouldn't be the expectation for anything purchased from the Vita store. I could see why people would want a refund, even if they have a PS3.

 

i'm sure they'd give a refund if you called in.   I've gotten a refund before with no muss no fuss.   but it's transferable over a ps3 (even a friends, if req'd) and for anyone that really wants to play it (great game) it's a far better situation than not being able to get it on your vita at all (it's on mine).

 

licensing nightmare, most likely.

I tried the demo when it came out, and then put another hour or two into it on ps+.  And I know people (like you) love it, but I'm just struggling with the combat.   Not that it's difficult -- more that it seems imprecise and easy to mess up, and I wouldn't want to get deep into the game with a nice fortress and then die to a slime.

 

For reference, let's use spelunky.   Now, that game is very similiar in a way -- tiny little dude with a short range weapon.   But hot damn is it precise.   I dislike spelunky for different reasons, i just don't like platformers that much, but i did put 5 or 10 hours into it anyway because it's so smooth.   It's hard, but precise, and I felt like i was (generally) in control with my whip, rocks, and various powerups.  As a platformer, it just felt 'right'.

I've never once felt that level of control in combat in terrarria, and it puts me off.   I'd far rather the terrarria 'world' over spelunky (mining, building, exploring) but... yegads.   I dig myself into a pit then spend 5 minutes trying to get platforms built correctly to jump out, then spend another 5 minutes trying to get out, then a slime jumps in the pit with me and i don't have any room to maneuver and i'm dead.   Or I spend 5 minutes trying to build some walls (to bang my head against), then a slime gets in there with me and i'm dead.

 

perhaps i just need to spend more time with it, which is why i posted.  i'm just not used to finding games particularly 'difficult' from a control perspective.  i like difficult games (be it from a strategy or arcade perspective) but thats assuming the challenge is from the game itself, not me struggling with the controls.

I'm pretty sure the only time I died in Terraria was when a boss killed me, or I fell into some lava. If slimes are killing you, you might want to just walk away now.

Pretty sure if you transfer your save between Vita/PS3 now, it disables your trophies. So he might not wanna do that if he's thinking about it. Supposedly they did that to disable the auto-pop trophies.

Was that a recent patch? When I played, I had no issues. But that was like two years ago at this point.

If you want to make the combat easier, use your axe until you get a broadsword and take advantage of the wide swing arc.

I have no idea how recent it was, but was definitely a later patch. I only learned about it cause I have both versions collecting dust and was curious (glad I looked it up though, cause I would have done that myself)

Well that's lame. I can understand why they did it though. I had someone actually call me out on my MGS3 trophies because they didn't know you could auto-pop them by transferring your save. So hopefully Vigisaurus is playing unpatched.

I finally beat that level last yesterday. It was the only one from the first 20 that I hadn't completed mostly because of that part. When I did beat it it was with 97 diamonds because I didn't jump right down the middle so I had to beat it again. After the checkpoint it gives you an opportunity to jump down from the very top but I knew I'd die more doing that than starting over. Now I have 3 more levels left in the ghost world before going back to complete most of the bonus levels.

Yep. I don't think it would matter though if you're playing patched/unpatched. If you transfer your save, don't you have to be signed in? And to be signed in, you'd have to update. So they just killed off the cross-save basically, unless you're not playing for trophies at all. (And who does that?)
