‘Killzone: Mercenary’ 50% off for Black Friday

One of the PlayStation Vita’s best game releases of 2013 can now be yours for nearly nothing. (Killzone Mercenary, PS Vita)

Excellent, excellent game! I'm just finishing up my Veteran playthrough of KZ:M.

Too bad it got hammered in the reviews. Typical, though.

"This Vita game? It's really awesome, but it isn't quite as awesome as a console version for...reasons. Therefore, 6/10"

"What? A NEW 3DS GAME?!? It's pretty great...for a handheld title. The graphics are great...for a handheld title. But, it is Nintendo, guize! 10/10!!!"

EXACTLY. Nobody takes away points from 3DS games for not being as "X" as a console game yet the VITA does.

Ugh. I agree with you *rolls eyes* .. bias was always there with the 3DS despite the mutitude of repeated titles Nintendo kept providing. I guess they are obsessing on first party releases on the selling handheld now since they can't do anything good for the Wii U (super mario 3d world? pft.). I bought KZ: M at full price and up until now, it's still worth every penny. It wasn't technically "hammered" though. a lot of reviews gave it an 8-9/10 or 4-5/5 scores based on respective score caps.

Fair enough. I guess I'm remembering quite a few 6/10s and 7/10s specifically because it was "a good shooter, but not as good as a console shooter". You are right. There was a lot of praise for Mercenary as well.

And on the same note, I do own a 3DS and I love the 3DS. But the review bias is overwhelming. A lot of 3DS games get a free pass just because they're Nintendo.

My favorite portable game this year, already platinum'ed it and I'm still putting several hours into it a day...

If you've put it off until now... BUY IT.

Can't beat that for $20! Picked up Batman Origins for the Vita on there for $25. Not a bad deal and was waiting for that one to get a price cut.
