Visiting my fiance
As most of you probably already know, I got to the US last Monday to visit my fiance who lives in Oklahoma. I've been having a great time so far, and I know it's just going to get better and better :D We haven't really done much yet, so there isn't really much to say, but we're planning to go to Texas to visit family for a weekend. We're probably also going to go out and take pictures, as we both love taking pictures. If you're interested, here are some of the pictures we've taken: Our pictures on Panoramio.
Got a PS Vita
Got a Playstation Vita last week, and I've been having so much fun playing it. I finished Uncharted: Golden Abyss a couple of days ago and i'm going for platinum. I really love this handheld :D Also, been playing some WipEout 2048, Mortal Kombat, Super Stardust Delta, Escape Plan and MotorStorm RC, in addition to some of my PSP games from PSN; Super Stardust Portable, Splinter Cell Essentials (got it off PSN just for my Vita, since I have no way to get my UMD on the Vita :P) and Patapon 2. Super Stardust Portable is so much easier to play on the Vita, compared to the PSP.
PS Vita vs 3DS: My opinion
As much as I love my 3DS, I have to say the Vita is far more awesome. The only reason I love my 3DS, is Zelda: Ocarina of Time and the 3D is of course still pretty awesome, but I'd still go with the Vita over the 3DS any time. The Vita doesn't have a lot of games yet, but I love the few games I have for it right now. I love Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Mortal Kombat is a lot of fun, and of course WipEout 2048 and Super Stardust Delta are really awesome as well! I'm also really looking forward to Gravity Rush and Resistance Burning Skies.
So what exactly makes me like the Vita more than the 3DS?
Well, first of all, the 3DS doesn't really have a lot of games that appeal to me. Yeah, it has Zelda, but that's pretty much the only thing I love about it. Of course, I love Splinter Cell 3D and MGS3D, but I get those games on PS3 anyway, although not in 3D (unless you have a 3D enabled TV, that is). I also love playing Pokemon once in a while, but that doesn't really count as they are DS titles and I could just as well have owned a DS to play them.
Second, while the Vita has two analog sticks, you have to buy the second analog stick for the 3DS separately. And I don't know why, but to me the separate analog stick for 3DS feels kinda awkward to play with.
Third, the design. The 3DS looks kinda childish in a way, while the Vita... it's just beautiful to me lol. I don't know how else to put it.
Fourth, the menus. I can't put my finger on what the reason is, but I really don't like the main menu and all on the 3DS very much. It feels kinda messy for some reason. The LiveArea on the Vita is great. You can change the background on the LiveArea to whatever you like, and you can have different backgrounds for each of the LiveArea windows. I only use the same one for all of them though. It just simply feels so much more tidy than the 3DS. Although I love the new LiveArea UI, it would have been nice if they made an option to switch to XMB, so I could switch between them in between.
Fifth, the graphics. Not much to say here, but I do like the graphics on the Vita better than the 3DS. I don't really care about graphics though as long as the game is good, so I might as well have just left this out as it doesn't really matter lol. While I'm mentioning graphics though, the graphics on Zelda were amazing.
Sixth, omg, trophies that stack with the ones you earn on PS3! I'm not that much of a trophy hunter anymore, but I do love that *ding* sound the trophies make when you earn them. I don't know why it's so satisfying :P
Seventh, well, to be honest, I will always choose Sony over Nintendo. I used to love Nintendo when I was younger, but I guess that's just what Nintendo is (in my opinion); good for the younger gamers.
I feel like there's something I've forgotten, but I guess I'll have to add it later :P
So yeah, now I own a PS2, PS3, PSP, PS Vita and Sony Ericsson Xperia Play (R800i) aka the Playstation Phone.
Also, note that this list is not in any particular order. I just wrote whatever came to mind :P
Another thing, these are just my personal opinions. I am not writing this to piss anyone off. If you prefer the 3DS, then good for you. I'm not gonna tell you that you are wrong for liking it more because that is your opinion :)
