Thanks for posting the trailer and link; I'm definitely in for that on Vita. Do you plan on having a launch discount?

Thanks for your support. :) Not 100% sure yet, but I'm leaning toward having a launch discount.  I remember picking up a few games on launch just because of their launch discounts that I wouldn't have otherwise, so it seems like a smart move.

 

Best of luck to you friend. If you want me to help you promote on the Asian Vita forums I frequent, I can cross-post with your permission of course.

Thanks!  That would be awesome if you could do that; you absolutely have my permission.  :)

Congrats in the new game. I picked up your previous game last week so as I chip away at the backlog, I hope to pick this one up down the line too.

This game is a broken POS. 

 

Bioware is further misleading consumers by saying big fixes are en route. NOTHING can fix this game. It is fundamentally broken at its core. They would have to literally change everything to fix it. And I'm not just talking about crappy animations. 

 

Buyer beware. 

how dare you, i for one, love doing messenger runs, other people's jobs, and random hunting/scavenging for absolutely no reward.

Just recently got my 3000th trophy, and it was from Super Blackout. But I didn't pick it up this time. I think I got it about a year or so ago, most likely coinciding with a sale considering the site we are on. It did remind me to start playing it though. Looking forward to your new game.

Awesome!  Super Blackout will forever haunt your trophy milestone list. :)  Big thanks for your support.

I was excited to get Helldivers for PS+ and then after I tried it I was disappointed.  Lovers is more of a "fun" co-op in the vein of Overcooked, I think.

I enjoyed Helldivers, other than the way community events are triggered and succeed can make it difficult to complete them / know when they occur. 12 different difficulty levels basically means it's easy to find one that matches your current skill level. Friendly fire always on can also lead to some rather hilarious deaths if you are playing with friends.

Corpse Party  Blood drive any good?  

If you have played and enjoyed the previous 2 PSP games, then you might like seeing how the story goes on, even if i didn't care for the direction it took. Gameplay-wise it is not good, fetch questing in the dark. The game is also pretty poorly optimized leading to 1-2 second load times on almost all actions, including menu selections. It also caused the vita operating system to crash a few times. It's quite jarring moving from the PSP games which have almost no load times, to blood drive. It probably has to do with the move 2D sprites to 3D.

 

If you haven't played the PSP games already, then don't bother as you will be completely lost story-wise as it just drops you in and there are a lot of different characters.

Nice. Can you talk about your experience with getting a game on a sony system? Sony seems to be pushing indie devs to release on their platforms, but wondering what the actual reality is like.

In my experience, the hardest part was just meeting the prerequisites to apply.  That meant legally starting a company (as an LLC in my case), and then getting a bank account set up in my company's name.  Those two things required a lot of legwork over a couple of weeks.

 

Beware the fees in your state for running a company, as they can vary heavily from state to state.  Filing an annual report only costs $25 here in WI, so that's all it costs me at this point aside from income tax, but states like California will charge you hundreds every year.

 

After that, it's just a matter of filling out their online application, and then having the patience to learn how everything works.  You'll also need to have some money to purchase a development kit, and (as their application states) have a static IP address.

I loved all of the first three. They were all amazing and among the most memorable games I've ever played. 

 

Andromeda, however, is such a POS. It is the most tedious, boring game.

 

In short, you go to planets, find a desk, hit a button, scan things, and then talk to people. This is literally the game. It sucks. I wouldn't buy it for $20 because. I think it is that bad. 

Totally agree. It's more misgudied third-person "open world" nonsense.

 

It's not hard to understand what these games get wrong fundamentally: sandboxes aren't fun. To make a good game, developers have to craft new and interesting experiences, not copy-paste the same boring ones a hundred times and put out press releases about how much "content" there is to "explore".

The Mass Effect trilogy was good for exactly the same reason KOTOR was good. A good storyline with interpersonal developments between compelling characters, with lots of new unique individually-crafted experiences to encounter as you travel through the galaxy and plot. 

 

Hopefully one day AAA gaming will escape from their "open world" obsession and find a new shitty design misconception to beat into the ground.

Damn. Was hoping if it was cheap enough, I could have convinced our programmer to make a Vita version of our game.

Join bing rewards. You can usually earn at least a $5 credit a month just by clicking around on the internet for 20 seconds a day.


God bless Bing Rewards. Much of my digital 360 and One backlog has come from Bing.

This article states $2500 and I hope you did not pay that much. It seems they are lending them out to "favored" developers for a year for free.

I know people were concerned because Sony Rewards points expire tomorrow. They've restocked the $10 and $20 codes in the last few days.

Although it looks like my points, which I could have sworn expired tomorrow, now don't expire until next March. Does earning points extend the duration of all points?
