So i managed to forget to buy a memory card. But i will go back and buy one tomorrow. 

Anyways, i need some game recomendations, perhaps also some cross-platform games. I already have the last 3 month's of ps+ and i have PS: All-Stars

Excellent, welcome to the family.

First off, if you have the money, don't get a memory card less than 16 gigs. The downloads pile up quick, heck, Uncharted is 3+ gigs alone. I started with an 8 gig, then a 16 gig and I now have a 32 gig with only 4 gigs of space left. I'll probably get the new 64 gig card but only under some kind of "deal" circumstances. As for games, why don't you tell us what you're into and then we'll see if we can list off a few

Enjoy!

Killzone is a definate. Need for Speed is great. The Walking Dead if you haven't played it before. Lego Harry Potter Years 5 - 7 was a load of fun. Then there are the PS Classics and PSP games on the store for you to have a look at. Personally I've been playing through Final Fantasy NES games, and am going to have to give Crash Bandicoot Wrath of Cortex and Tekken 2 a purchase at some point. Then there are the endless indie games. Plus more coming soon, Batman Blackgate (or whatever it is called), Tearaway, and there are even some PS2 re-makes out or coming out.

And if none of that grabs you then there isn't much any of us can do to help you.

if you have the last 3 months of plus, you'll be set for a bit.

 

wipeout,gravity rush, uncharted were pretty good and they'll keep ya busy for a while. and then ya got rayman coming out at the end of september for free

 

zero escape was......amazing. a very different game but the story was incredible. and it has that grab-and-go factor that a good handheld game needs.

Well, ignoring the good games with Plus, you may want to check out LittleBigPlanet Vita, Killzone, Soul Sacrifice, and Need for Speed.  Maybe Persona 4 if you're into JRPGs, as it seems to be the one to get, but I couldn't get into it that much.

I personally would recommend holding off on buying any games. Play through your ps+ backlog and then start purchasing some games, then they may be cheaper.

I kind of agree with holding off on buying any games, if you have Playstation Plus download and play all of that, and if there are any games that stick out then buy them.

I'd suggest Persona 4 for sure though, that's a must play, also Soul Sacrafice and  Killzone Mercenary.

I just got Dragons Crown yesterday and I can't put it down. The game is a masterpiece. I love the artistic visuals and music. The combat and RPG elements are great and make the game addicting as hell. I also got the new Killzone and if you like online shooters then you won't be dissapointed. It's visually stunning and it plays great. Be aware that some people(not everybody) are having problems connecting to the servers so you might want to wait until they fix it. I personally haven't encountered any problems, lucky me. 

These are my first two Vita games and I'm having a blast.

Last Ride, you lucky son of a sandwich hahaha xD. I don't own a Vita myself, but from what I've heard a few games that are pretty good are Uncharted, Persona 4 Golden, Dragon's Crown (cross platform), and Gravity Rush :).

A good suggestion would be to start checking out the demos after you get a memory card. Lotsa games have demos that have been listed here(Soul Sacrafice being a notable example)

Guacamelee and Sound Shapes are some really good crossbuy games. (PSN)

How has no one mentioned The Walking Dead? It's easily one of the best games for the vita and its only $20 w/ the add-on content.

Sound Shapes is meh until you get to Death Mode, that is where it shines.
