I'd like to see a TRUE return of the Phantasy Star games (bring back the turn-based RPG combat and in-depth storyline) and a good Shining Force game. Yes, I am aware that both Phantasy Star and Shining Force have had recent titles but I consider these titles to be spinoffs since they are very dissimilar to the original series' gameplay.

Fez confirmation is good. Gonna double-dip (already beat it on PC)

It's a tradeoff. The LCD apparently has a bit less bleeding/ghosting of colors compared to the OLED. Honestly, never had any issues with the OLED screen, but if the new LCD bothers you that much, an OLED Vita is $199 retail price...

It is. Actually, it's less. The system + game + 8G memstick is $199. I imagine the stand-alone system will be $170 or $180.

Bundling it with Minecraft would be a smarter move.

1438d ago 2 agree1 disagreeView comment

Yeah, but why didn't they bundle in the 2 PSP games? At least include a download code.

Hardly feels like a collection when there are 2 other games in the series sitting on the PSN store, not included. Kinda like the "MGS HD collection" that came to Vita but strangely omitted MGS1 and Peace Walker.

Woot woot!

Sony needs to do a complete "relaunch" of the Vita, and no, please don't sell it as a fancy PS4 accessory. Highlight the fact that it can play the console version of Minecraft...but portable! That's something smartphones can't do.

Wow. When Molyneux - the creator of that awful smartphone game Curiosity - condemns this, you know you've dun goofed.

So the Ouya doesn't count, but the CD-i and Pippin and 3D0 do? That's my point. Every "box" that enters into the console space adds to the saturation, and Ouya added to the saturation.

I love me some MH and I'd prefer that the series stays the way it is. The one major difference between MH and its competitors is that MH includes more options, more simulation, more wheel-within-wheels mechanics, and more technical combat.

None of the MH "clones" (that's a bit unfair to name them such, but whatev) have MORE technical combat. All of them have LESS technical combat and MORE button-mashy/actiony combat. And MH isn't just about slaying monst...

I've been saying this for quite a while now: the 8th gen is going to be saturated, and the results are always the same: one console brand dominates by a huge margin, and the other consoles fight over the scraps. Ouya, Steambox, PS4, X1, Wii-U, and now Amazon console? Not to mention all of the external competition from smartphones and tablets.

Don't believe me? We already have two historical instances as proof.

First, you have the 5th gen. We all remem...

Update > No update

Having tolerated the incredibly annoying PS3 updates from last gen (now it's better because PS+ handles that for me) I think people will somehow survive this update if it means improving their system.

Let's just hope it's not like the X1 CoD Ghosts update that currently makes the game run at a juttery 30 frames...

It won't happen, but it might encourage Microsoft to divert attention AWAY from Xbox, which is almost just as bad. Their enterprise and web hosting/cloud options are far, far more profitable. I can see Microsoft swerving away from the X1's current gaming focus in as little as 2 years: get the "early adopters" and "core fans" who were going to buy the system anyway, and then focus your attention on integrating X1 with media and cloud services as Microsoft pushes to ...

Oh wow! Looks really good. I was planning on picking this up anyway (since I loved the PC version) but this looks incredible

Wow. Seems like some of Pachter's "investor buddies" are nervous about Sony's extreme success. First he says Sony doesn't have enough 1st party devs, then he says (multiple times over multiple days) that PS Now is a joke, it will fail, etc.

People have to realize that Pachter's public statements are NOT investment advice. That is something he keeps private. The stuff he says in public is intended to manipulate the market (which makes his own job easi...

I would like it if they returned to the more zany, brooding tone and theme of earlier games in the series like Persona 2 EP/IS. Those games still had off-the-wall moments like in P3 and P4, but they were also far more serious.

Agreed. The only "bad" hardware I can think of was the Virtual Boy and maybe the Micro GBA, but their hardware is always very solid and built with quality (and often affordability) in mind. Even when it comes to features I don't enjoy (like the Wii-U tablet or the 3DS's 3D) it's still quality.

But no, we don't need that. Nintendo should just do software. They should go 3rd party. That worked out great for SEGA, didn't it?

Hopefully this won't go oop, at least not soon. I remember FE: Awakening being hard to find for its first few months.

Quick question: isn't layaway something where you put money down, they "reserve" it for you, and then you can pick it up once you've paid it off?

If that is the case, this does not make sense. X1 is widely available. It would actually make more sense to do this for PS4, which is having trouble staying in stock.

Looks like a really great game. I loved the demo. I'll pick it up once I finish up with a few of my backlog RPGs...
