Just purchased a Vita for Black ops and will be picking it up at midnight, any other games I should be picking up as well? I can imagin little big planet would be fun to play on the Vita? also im a big fan of assassins creed games but is it any good on the Vita?

LittleBigPlanet is the one must-have for the system, I think, so don't even give it a second thought. AC is good, but the story's not that great and some of the gameplay falls short of the standard. It's still a quality game, though, and has the proper AC feel. The reviews pretty much spell it out for you. I'd suggest Lumines: Electronic Symphony (it's pretty cheap at this point), Sound Shapes, Retro City Rampage(fun but very flawed GTA demake with NES-style graphics), and Wipeout 2048 is an excellent Wipeout game (and you receive the HD+Fury packs for free if you own them for PS3). If you're into shooters(as I suspect), Unit 13 is a bit of a sleeper hit with a great feel. The weapons have great audiovisual feedback and the gameplay is engaging enough to make it stand out as one of the best portable shooters.

MGS HD collection is a strong pick if you didn't get the console version it's a great collection and really sweet to have them on the go. Rayman origins, is another good game looks great on the Vita and i've gotten alot of time out of it collecting everything. Despite what some people may say i REALLY enjoyed Gravity rush, and would even go so far as to put it in the running for portable game of the year. Little Big planet, is alot of fun to and even better if you can find a group of SackBoys/SackGirls to play with. Personally i didn't really enjoy Assassin's creed, but i think it was because i really didn't give it a shot since i have heard the beginning is slow and i just gave up. You could also wait a week and then Persona 4 Golden, and Playstation all stars, comes out. Seems like P4 is getting alot of hype and good early reviews and i personally have PSAS preordered. :D

Also if you're interested on some game deals i would recommend checking out Amazon Warehouse, or Gamefly. I've gotten quite the collection built up from their good deals.

After seeing Black ops on that guys Youtube account, I was sold on the Vita, the multiplayer looks like COD on the go! Much better than what was shown at E3, The Vita has more games out than I expected since everyone seems to luv to hate on it I never realized it's line up is actually pretty decent.

Yeah, take advice from the guy named GamespotSux. That's a brilliant idea.

I wasn't replying to you, so I intended no offense. The Vita does have plenty of good games.

Uh, maybe you were being sarcastic, but Patapon 4 doesn't exist, at least not yet.

Prepare for A LOT of buyers remorse. Reviewers are saying CoD: BOD has a 45 minute longer campaign and the multiplayer is completely broken.

EDIT: Giant Bomb just gave it a 1 outta 5.

Dont worry black ops is good on VITA there is no actual campaign. Its just 10 special ops missions. I like to think of it as training for the Online which is actually very good. There is a 500mb patch which has fixed all the problems i was having. Although the match making system sometimes wont connect first time every go. It may take up to 3 times to join a game. But its not a deal breaker. And this isnt uncommon with online games anyway.

Jesus christ. A portable system and a game that only has multiplayer? What a turd.

I prefer CoD than Black Ops.. Patapon 4 i really will try this game out if ever this will be out.. Currently bought Dokuro..love this puzzle game! It gives my mind a little workout while playing

So far i like the multiplayer a lot. I dont care about single player which is what a lot of reviewers dont seem to like.

As for other games, I have enjoyed Unit 13 a lot. Very underrated game, however mine crashed everytime I took the update. I just deleted and reinstalled the game without the update and its fine.

Mod Nation racers has been a surprise good game for me. I like its pacing and single player better than PS3. Plenty of stuff to download too.

NFS Most Wanted is excellent too. Its the complete console game on Vita.

#21 Posted by Kukurochan (24 posts) -
i also love playing some racing games..nfs has good graphics into it but on vita i really dont like it..frame rate is low.. that's the second pick of my game genre..first of course is puzzle games like dokuro..on my ipad i also have puzzle game like cut the rope, Puzzle and Dragons etc.
