Is that true for the Vita version as well? Or just the PS4 version?

Sorry I didn't reply to you earlier, but yes the Vita version is a beautiful port with the same ability to control filters and get a crisp, sharp image by turning off the annoying blur/softening filters.

There is no Vita version, just PSP and I think it has the same problem.

Actually there is a Vita version. The standalone 25th Anniversary release of Metal Slug 3 was put out on the PS4, PS3, and Vita in 2015. All versions feature top quality emulation by Code Mystics, including the ability to turn off the softening filters and have a crisp, beautiful image on all three systems. I just booted up the Vita version and it looks beautiful on the handheld and plays very well. These Limited Run releases are both physical versions of the 25th Anniversary Metal Slug 3 release.

For people who think the Metal Slug Anthology versions are just as good (not referring to you here), they're not even close to the 25th Anniversary release.

Truly spoken like someone who has no idea what he's talking about. I come here for deals, not fanboy wars.

Obviously I do know what I'm talking about, look how badly the Wii U failed. People saw what it was and realized that it wasn't worth it. They poured way too many resources into the gamepad, leaving very little left for the console itself. No reason to get upset when people voice opinions other than your own.

I thought the Wii U was a good system. It just had terrible branding and poor support.

Too bad it had such poor specs and was missing many commonly expected features, mainly due to the expensive gamepad gimmick. And unfortunately if the gamepad breaks, the system becomes a useless brick. It really wasn't well designed at all, but that's been the case for all Nintendo systems for well over a decade.

I think you may be looking at the PS4 option, were talking about the switch.

Any thoughts on which cover to choose for Stardust Galaxy? I don't like both so I'm really torn, I'm leaning more towards the black & red.

The red cover looks absolutely horrible, like someone sloshed red paint on to a piece of paper. The other cover is pretty bad too though, they really did a poor job on both.

I'd get it for PS4, don't have a Switch.

Contains Strikers 1945, Sol Divide, Samurai Aces, and Gunbird.

N = Nintendo for those that don't know. He can write 5 paragraphs but can't type NINTENDO.

Everyone knows what he means, no reason to nitpick unless you're just trying to get attention.

My copy of Rock Boshers LRG came today for the vita. Came with a little card. Don't know if that's normal. Wish the box art had more to it though, back is a little bare. This is my second LRG, first being Oddworld: sw

Box art on many LRG games has been pretty bad, with some exceptions. Games often feature poorly designed front and back covers with dull colors, tiny/dark/undecipherable screenshots on the back (if any), and overall unappealing artwork.

I understand that the developers design the box art for these games, but LRG has been in business long enough to offer valuable feedback on cover design that could really improve the overall package. This is one reason why I've scaled LRG purchases way back, it often seems like little to no effort goes into the product packaging.

Screencheat looks pretty poopy. :(

Agreed. It's a multiplayer based game, with little to no single player content. Not a good choice for a physical release, same problem as Lawbreakers. Easy pass.

Anyone have any thoughts on the recently announced "Sky Force Anniversary"? Looks like a decent vertical shmup. The initial levels of the game look a lot slower paced than other games of this type that I've seen so it might be a good one for casuals, at least at the beginning.

It's an absolutely fantastic shmup. Yes it starts out slow (ship moves slowly and is underpowered), but as you upgrade your ship and get to later levels, it gets insane. Graphics are really nice along with sound effects and music. I played both Sky Force games on Android and they're fantastic, great to have them on consoles!

And btw Sky Force Reloaded is even better, added new features and plays great.

I found the Wii U version for $11 the other day. Easy pass.

Unfortunately most people don't bother with the Wii U anymore. I already have 4 consoles connected to my TV (PS3, 360, PS4, XB1), no interest in the Wii U which is a dead console anyway. Also Steamworld Dig looks fantastic on the Vita's OLED screen and plays beautifully on the system, colors are rich and saturated and controls are great. Would rather play it on that system anyway.

DDIV only, River City Melee is lame.

Actually they're both pretty lame. Easy pass on them both. Nex Machina and La Mulana were much better games.

Amazon is producing one of their "AmazonBasics" cases for the SNES Classic Edition, available 1/30/18 for $14.99:

Kind of late to the party, and the RDS Industries case will probably be a better option IMO. I already got an RDS Wii Game Traveler case for mine and it works great:
