Why Is this super lazy, un-animated "Screen Shaking effect for everything" mobile looking game on current gen consoles? And then NiS slaps a $79.99 LE price tag on that, $59.99 for the standard?

Labyrinth of Refrain looks like an upscaled PS2 game.

Oh boy, RPG maker tier dungeon crawler #28402480. Can we get some more actual vita games? zzzz.

It does seem like companies are starting to take the Kemco method of churning out games every few months that all look the same. I do enjoy dungeon crawlers, but it would be nice to see a little more animation out of my team other than a shaking cut-out, and the fanservice face blush.

Just a heads up, One More Dungeon for the Vita & PS4 are back in stock at Play-Asia. I guess this is the last amount being offered, as they just sent an email stating they sold thru 65% so far across both systems. So it's doubtful these last another 24 hrs.

God Wars Is Getting An Updated Version On PS4, PS Vita, And Switch With A New Episode And Plenty More


This would get announced a week after I buy it on Vita. I wonder if we will be getting a physical version or have to buy a DLC expansion for the extra stuff.

My guess is God Wars update on Vita will be digital only.

It would be so perfect on my Vita, been waiting and prayer for it. Yet that is the version that is not localized.

 

I would be beyond surprised if this goes physical, and I would gladly shelve my recently bought vanilla. But my guess is that like Stranger of Sword City or Valkyrie Drive, the enhanced version would be digital only.

 

Speaking of Vita DRGPs, really loving Mary Skelter, and it is definitely at DT2 levels of enjoyment for me.

Fully expect this to be digital only. That said, I think it's fair to call the Switch the Vita's replacement, and it does have a bigger screen, so I'll probably play it there instead. I'm one of those people that really only likes playing TRPGs on handhelds, so this is awesome news for me.

Not seeing any new free junk this week on PSN. The weekly sale is 2K related, so nothing there either.

 

 

Also, King of Fighters 2002 is free on PC for the next 48 hours (roughly) on GOG. You can find the free link near the top of the front page.

If the Switch had some sort of trophies system and a significantly longer battery life, I'd agree. But I'm still going to get it for the Vita.

If it does end up being digital only I’ll be keeping my physical copy. I’m not a very big fan of digital only. If for some reason the Switch gets a physical copy instead though I’ll buy that one and sell the Vita version.

I hear you on playing TRPG’s on handhelds. It just feels like the way they should be played for some reason.

Thanks. Also note that Sega’s annual Make War Not Love promotion starts tomorrow... if you’re in the mood for some free Sega Steam games.

Completely agree on the overall ecosystem. PSN isn't perfect, but it's leaps and bounds ahead of Nintendo's. I find the battery life to be very, very comparable between Vita and Switch, though.

Really? My Switch lasts maybe 3 hours playing puzzle games. My Vita (even my 1000) lasts 6+.

 

Edit: I'm not doubting you, but I'm curious if your Switch lasts longer, or your Vita shorter.

 Your Switch time is a bit worse than mine, but your Vita time is way better! Maybe I need to leave wifi off and turn my brightness down or something.

I use my Switch with the joycons connected, brightness on both are usually low, and WiFi for both are always on.

Well, damn. Maybe my Vita's battery is a bit on the shit side. It is a launch 1,000, but I don't feel that I've used it enough for the battery to be shot.

Puyo Puyo I've got 4 hours on Switch but anything else is much less which sucks. XB2 is maybe 3 hours tops.

The Vita battery is God-Tier. On my last business trip I accidentally left the Vita on sleep mode after I got off the plane and it was probably at 75%. I never played on that Vita until a month later. I hit the button and I realized I never fully shut it down and it still had 20% of its battery left.



Well, damn. Maybe my Vita's battery is a bit on the shit side. It is a launch 1,000, but I don't feel that I've used it enough for the battery to be shot. 

If you need a battery replacement for you 1000, check this out. 

 

And here's how you'll take it apart.

Yes turning off the blutooth wifi ect and turning down the brightness a little when playing games that don't use it helps a bit for the vita.  It may also be time for the battery to be replaced soon.

between the stupid update that one month that drained the battery and the 1000 having a high battery failure rate it could be either or that caused it.

On this note squaretrade? through ebay replaced my battery and did a wonderful job.  replaced the screws with shiny new ones, polished the screen and everything.  I wish I had renewed my warranty with them but sadly I didn't think about it until long after it had expired when my head phones slot failed.

My vita's been charging with a blinking orange light. It might be the cable since it's pretty ragged on the edge. The battery looks full on the top right, but it'll randomly give me a low battery warning even if it's still green, too. Launch model, too.
