Heads up. Toys R Us is having a Buy 1 get one half off sale on all Vita games starting March 4th.

Unit 13 and MLB The SHow both come out on March 6th. They are mine!!!!!

Hopefully Amazon matches it because then i can use my $20 coupon from my vita preorder.

Started playing Lumines. Awesome game, but I am terrible at it.

Anyone have any idea why my scores aren't being uploaded to the Leaderboard? Having a single-player puzzle game without good leaderboard functionality is NOT cool.

And yes, I'm connected to my Wi-Fi. I can view the leaderboards, my scores just aren't showing up (even though they'd be near the bottom, it'd still be cool to see where I stand).

Gravity Rush is hitting June 12th. The developer claims the localization needs that much time but I suspect Sony is just spacing out major releases. Old but really cool trailer at the link.

Ugh. I hate it when Europe always gets shafted like this. They should have announced the Europe release date as well. Hopefully it comes out at the same time as in the US.

Did you pick up Motorstorm? How is it?

Awesome. Even better than I expected. Really addicting and the perfect pick up and play game. And if you were making some kind of point with this, well played sir. Ok, that's one thing Europe actually gets before the US.

Another is A-Men. A really brilliant puzzle game that everyone needs to check out. I don't think it's out in the US yet, but it's out in Europe and it's fantastic. Youtube it.

[QUOTE="_Bear"]Yeah this thing is one impressive little machine, it's only getting better, I'm gonna get Unit 13 and Motorstorm RC next week!_Bear

Same here. The Golden Abyss team needs to visit the Unit 13 team to learn how to implement aiming mechanics.

Hey Carrnage add me we can play some Motorstorm or at least share the ghost data, & whatever else we both have, near is pretty cool Solid and I have traded a few gifts already. tag in my sig.

Do you have Rayman? I uploaded some ghosts for it. You can also share other ingame items but i havent figured out how to do that yet.

And Unit 13 has coop so definitely hit me up when you get it. I loved the demo. Did you beat my score in the demo?

Isn't PSN supposed to be down for maintenance today? That could be why my leaderboards aren't updating.

107 people playing Near to me. Interestingly, the most popular game is Luminees, not Uncharted (though Uncharted is a close second).

Finished Attack of the Mutant Blobs on the way home from work. Its a really great game which is well worth the couple bucks it costs. I love how sometimes the difficulty curve dips to allow player to have fun eating stuff and the satisfaction one gets from eating enemies or obstacles one had to avoid back when one was small.

I was more impressed by Unit 13 (the aiming is much better and speed running SOCOMesque missions alone or with a buddy appeals to me) so I am waiting for that.

Fair deal I'd say. It's not like they can give the vita version for free. Let's hope third parties follow this as well.

There is a new Silent Hill game coming out for the Vita? Will it be any good. Will the console one be any good? Will SH be good ever again? :Pdvader654
It's a dual stick shooter with a Silent Hill skin, it doesn't count.
#413 Posted by _Bear (18759 posts) -

No Solid I don't have Rayman on Vita because I have it on PS3, I might pick it up when I can get it cheap. Did not beat your high score on Unit 13 but look forward to coop. It was funny I saw the Rayman Gift and was like wtf am I supposed to do with this? Motorstorm RC looks great must have it.

#414 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

I am THE worst MVC3 player of all time. I dont think there has ever been anyone as bad as me. I have lost to people on 15 win streaks and people who are 0-5, i sometimes dont even get to press a button before my first guy is gone, i truly suck balls.

Managed to win just one match after losing 11. Even players who are 0-3 are like gods at this game. THey dont even give me a f*cking chance.

What sucks is that the specials moves R+L are glitched or something, they almost never work when i want.

That said, the online is surprisingly smooth. I barely have to wait 10 seconds before it finds someone, and the 30 minutes or so i played, it found new players every time. There was only one match with really bad lag but he destroyed me so it didnt last long.

You know I've got some experience with fighting games -- MVC3 is really tough on beginners. Some would call it "cheap", since you can kill someone within seconds without them touching the ground (if the other player doesn't know how to counter). Since I was new to MVC3 when I got it on the 360, I bought a Strategy Guide that explained all the games' systems, counters, hit-boxes, etc. I didn't play the game much (because the online was absolutely horrific), but studying up on the game really helped, and I ended up winning the vast majority of my online matches. There's also http://www.shoryuken.com as an invaluable learning resource for fighting games. But just a heads up, they're worse elitist douchebags than NeoGaf. :D

#422 Posted by Jbul (4835 posts) -

Played the Rayman: Origins demo today. Beautiful game. With the additional content (relics, shareable ghost challenges) it may very well be the definitive version of the game. And being able to zoom in and see the beautiful hand-drawn art is great -- I just wish the zoom held from area-to-area. Tempting to pick up, even though I own the 360 version.

@Jbul- The Lumines leaderboards are weird. Sometimes I have to quit the game and restart it to see how I'm doing. Persona 3 Portable has hooked me in to where I'm not playing much else on my Vita other than the daily HSG tournaments.

The leaderboards are currently completely broken. I've been playing the game since Thursday, and I have yet to appear on the leaderboards. I'm connected to a Wi-Fi signal in my house which is at full strength, so that's not the issue. Neither are my in-game settings, because I can see the World Block and contribute to it, plus I get updates on my friends high-scroes. Plus, the leaderboards for my other games work perfectly fine.

It's a shame, too, because Lumines is a great puzzle game, but since there's no online multiplayer, the leaderboards are the only source of motivation for competition. It's kind of bulls***, really. There's postings about it all over the Internet (the leaderboard issue in Lumines, I mean), but it's like no one seems to care. *shrug* Sad, but I'll probably trade the game in soon because of this.

S0lidSnake

HA HA! To be honest, I'm a little lost as to how Near, and the Black Market in general for Uncharted works. I did indeed try to upload some stuff, but there's no confirmation or anything telling WHAT I gave to WHOM.

Also, glad I skipped Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus... turns out, it runs at 30 FPS as opposed to every other version which runs at 60FPS. Kind of lame that very few reviews mentioned it, but it alters the feel of the gameplay signifigantly (as you'd imagine). What a lazy-ass port from Team Ninja. The Vita is MORE than powerful enough to run the game at 60FPS, for chrissake.

Yeah, Near is as well-realzied as it should be. The thing is anything you upload can go to multiple players, players in your area and players on your friends list. Imagine getting notifications for dozens of items in your Black market picked up by multiple players. It does keepstrack of items your friends have received from you in the Friends section of Near. So that's something. Just keep launching Near from within the Black Market everytime you unlock something, this will upload any items you have unlocked and send them to your friends automatically or make them available to people near you.

It may not be perfect, but it's still more fun and well-made than 3DS's Spot and StreetPass systems, and I've said previously in this topic. And I have a feeling Sony will keep the updates coming and fine tune things considerably.

Still loving Lumines like a fat kid loves cake, even though my leaderboards don't work (lame). I even tried re-installing the game, no dice. *EPIC SHRUG!*

Isn't today the start of that Toys R Us deal? I really have no choice but to take advantage of that. I'm so enthralled with my Vita I could almost give a s*** that ME3 comes out in 2 days. Wtf.

#429 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

Yes the Toys R Us deal starts today but their online site is charging $11 to ship two games. WTF?

Of course if you can find a toys r us that carries games you want, then it's a pretty good deal. No store has Virtua Tennis 4 which is pissing me off. It doesn't look like Unit 13 is gonna be available on launch day at Toys R Us either. Balls.

#430 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

Just bought this sexy case. Cost me $21 so not too happy about that, but it looks sexier than the official Sony travel pouch.

I am bleeding money on vita. I am in love with the Fifa demo, I badly need MLB The Show, and Unit 13 is just too tempting to pass up. Then there is Virtua tennis 4 which is supposedly the best looking game on the Vita. And it runs at 60 fps at the full Vita resolution. I hate this.

#431 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

Uncharted just keeps getting better and better. The pacing is PERFECT. Game's mostly adventure so you're mostly solving puzzles and exploring tombs, and some of these puzzles are ingenious. Shooting sections are few and far between and even they do a great job of keeping things fresh by switching up the fight scenarios. The game also does a fantastic job of telling the mythology. Unlike the console Uncharteds, I am interested in hearing about these explorers searching for the 7 cities of gold. Maybe it's the music or the focus on drawing during these cutsenes... whatever it is, I'm engrossed in the story.

It's funny that I am enjoying this way more than Uncharted 3 or heck even Uncharted 1. Probably because the focus is on storytelling and character interaction rather than shootouts after shootouts. As hard as ND tried to introduce different scenarios in Uncharted 3 to keep the gunfights from getting boring, it's funny that Sony Bend decision to switch the focus away from gunfights entirely has made the gunfights more entertaining and makes these scenarios feel more original.

The more I play this game the more I like it. The villians are great, Chase is fantastic.... both her and Drake are hilarious at times, and the story iis surprisingly touching. The game even manages to throw a couple of action setpieces in there, though nothing at the calibur of Uncharted 2 or 3's setpieces. If it wasn't for Rayman, i'd say this is the best launch game available on the Vita. I'd even say it's worth the $50. It's lenghty, it's got great replay value even with the lack of an online mode, and it's a fanservice to Uncharted fans. All Uncharted fans need to play this.

#432 Posted by Jbul (4835 posts) -

That case is sick. Where'd you find it? I picked up Rayman and, after initial hesitation, Ninja Gaiden today. I read a bunch of impressions saying the game still plays the same, so f*** it.. Also tried out Mutant Blobs today, it was awesome.

#433 Posted by _Bear (18759 posts) -

Yeah Near is kind of a mystery but still cool. I love FIFA it's the best Soccer I have ever played. On Uncharted I have to say I'm having more fun with it that UC3 too! I'm trying to Play SLOW. Unit 13 is great! I can't wait to get it this week ! I think I'm going to get Motorstorm RC I love those types of racing games. Top down mini's with tracks made out of cool stuff. I think Vita's Amazing really. I only wish a few things were a little better, Battery life, game prices should all be at the 29.99 price point that would help Sony a lot. If it keeps going like this, My vita will outpace PS3 games by this time next year.

PS I got the Offical Earbud headset and Travel Pouch at Lock ers 15 each free shipping. Lock erz is pretty cool. Earbuds are great and the mic is clear great deal at $15 I like the travel pouch too.

#434 Posted by CarnageHeart (18316 posts) -
Luminees is incredible. Not only the best visuals in the series (expected) but the best soundtrack. I just made it to (and past) the stage where the woman is singing in French as the flower blooms in the background. Crazy stuff. I shudder to imagine what would happen if Mizuguchi and his team are ever drug tested. I really should pick up Child of Eden one of these days.

OMG! Motorstorm RC is FREE!

Thanks to Scion.


Back in November, we revealed that Evolution Studios was working on a new title, MotorStorm RC, which would be released in the US as a downloadable game for both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita.
The game received critical praise when it launched in the UK two weeks ago. We think you'll agree that the wait was worth it, as we are pleased to not only announce that the PS3 version will be available beginning tomorrow separately for $9.99 ($7.49 for PlayStation Plus subscribers), but to also let you know that the PS Vita version of MotorStorm RC will also be available as a free download thanks to our partners at Scion.

That's right—for a limited time, the complete Vita MotorStorm RC game is available for download absolutely free – no additional purchases necessary! Not only that, but you'll be able to drive a custom RC version of Scion's iQ which is exclusive to the PS Vita version of the game. And be sure to check out the plethora of downloadable content which will become available for purchase for both versions of the game tomorrow.
MotorStorm RC features 16 unique tracks spread across four extreme environments, including the dusty desert mesas of Monument Valley, the dangerous jungles of a Pacific Island, the icy tundra at the Arctic Edge, and the apocalyptic ruins of a destroyed urban city. Players can conquer these environments in powerful radio-controlled vehicles, with hundreds of uniquely customized models to collect in 8 distinct categories: Buggies, Superminis, Rally Cars, Muscle Cars, Racing Trucks, Supercars, Big Rigs and Monster Trucks.


Visit the PlayStation Store on PS Vita tomorrow afternoon (Pacific time) to download your free game. And after you've taken the RC iQ for a spin in the virtual MotorStorm world, you can always check out this new vehicle in the "real world" at a Scion dealer near you. Enjoy!Sony

Jbul, that case is called Thrustmaster V.I.P Case. i got it from amazon, but it's out of stock. You can check their official website for more retailers who carry it. I shrunk the pic, so make sure you view the image in a seperate window. It looks sexy as f*** at full resolution.

Bear, the rear touchpad has made Fifa such an accessible game, and fun one. I am in love. Yesterday, i was down 0-3 after the first half and then came back to tie the game with Barcelona against Milan of all teams, then won it on the Penalty shootouts. That's when i said f*** MLB, im getting Fifa, the Cubs can wait another year. :P

And I've been playing Uncharted slow as well. I replay chapters to make sure i find all treasures and items. But every few chapters the game just goes into overdrive and its tough to stop playing those awesome action chapters. How far in the game are you? Some of the lighting effects in the indoor levels/tombs is fantastic. Better than most PS3 games.

Here is that awesome case:

#437 Posted by _Bear (18759 posts) -

I'm about at chapter 14, OMG the free Motorstorm RC is awsome! I was going to buy it anyway. FIFA I'm so hooked on it. It (UC GA)is the Best version since the first UC I really liked UC2 and 3 but I'm not fan of the whole lets make it a movie theme, I like to play, and Vita delivers in spades. So Far Vita is exactly what I wanted, my Unit 13 shipped this morning and I will have tomorrow!!!!! Oh and my MA3 shipped too which I will have Thursday. Plus a free Motorstorm RC? Can this week get any better ? It just started.

PS you really should try Lock erz and get the Earbuds for 15 dollars shipped they are amazing and have built in mic, the sound is much better through a headset or earphones or earbuds.

Agreed. This is my first Lumines game, so I'm still learning, but it's amazing how technical it really is (meaning, it really is skill based). There's a surprising amount of skins, and the playlist mode is also really fun. I just got to about 240k in Voyage mode, which is huge for me, and now I'm becoming addicted to the Stopwatch mode -- it's a really cool place to sharpen your skills. Do your leaderboards work? Add me if you'd like -- FrostyJ. A little friendly competition never hurt anyone (although I'm sure you're much better than me, having Lumines experience). :D

My favorite skin is the crazy one with the phantom dancing in the background -- the percussion heavy one from the demo.

Motorstorm is up if you search for it. For whatever reason the proper update is a little slow today, but everything is there if you search. I just bought Unit 13 and I'm picking up Journey here in a bit.
#447 Posted by S0lidSnake (29001 posts) -

Unit 13. Is. Awesome.

The first four missions already have more variety in them than the entirety of Uncharted 3 and Gears 3 combined. :P The second mission was a stealth one so i decided to quietly kill every last fool and got out of dodge. Got only 2 stars out of 5 and the boss lady wasn't happy. Then i realized there is no kill bonus, went back, aced it and came upto 49th (!!!) on the leaderboards. Felt goooood.

There there was this awesome elite mission where you dont get any health regen and have to kill two bosses. Got destroyed on my first playthrough, second time i took my time, planned my attack... got both terrorist brothers with one shot.... headshot after headshot after headshot. It was beautiful.

I would go as far as to say that this game has the most satisfying headshots ever. Ever.

I want Motorsotrm RC, why isn't it up on the PSN store yet? Also, if you fools get Unit 13, I may have to as well, just to crush your high scores! ;P

U.S PSN store is a f***ing joke. It always has been. They update whenever the f*** they want. The Japan and EU stores get updated early in the day, and even ME3 download was up at midnight on the U.S PSN store. They are just incompetent hacks. I dont understand how you can ask people to go digital only and not update your store once a mother f***ing week.

Carnage, rragnaar, Bear and I all bought Unit 13. I dont know if it's worth getting over ME3 (but then again no game is) but its definitely worth checking out especially if you liked the demo.

Yeah, the shooting felt really really good in the demo. And the guns too. Everything had the perfect punch. I liked the PointMan guy, that shotgun was sick. And Rrag... Thank you! Found it. I'll play it a bit later. Free games FTW

Dont forget that there are five or six different cIasses and while you dont get to see it in the demo, the mission are designed around those cIasses. I had a blast with the sniper rifle. Got two headshots with one bullet. I was like thats awesome and then the Trophy popped up. Sooooo good!
