Thanks for posting this news, Poprocks. Totally awesome. I love playing on that OLED Vita screen!

Anything to support the game's Kickstarter! I don't think there's anyone out there who has an excuse not to at least give this a look now. :p

Donnieboi3677d ago (Edited 3677d ago )

There's a month left and we're already past the half-way point. I think it's definitely gonna make it. But I hope they get even more than they needed, just in-case they under-estimated the cost of porting to so many systems.

Alright time to back up this kickstarter! :D

abzdine3676d ago

Vita is amazing.. end of story!

Remy_S3676d ago

I'm definitely backing this game now.

Sarobi3676d ago

This and Mighty No 9 are my first to backs.

PopRocks3593676d ago

Congrats on jumping in! Hope this entices you to back more indie games in the future. :)

I'm a huge Shantae fan, but this selection is weak. It's official, MS is definitely skimping on GWG in favor of GP.

I mean...I guess LoS 2 is cool.


Don’t you mean it’s “your opinion “ that MS is skimping on GWG? I happen to like LOS2 and will be glad to play through it again. And GP is a PAID service don’t you think that a PAID service should offer better quality games? Yes yes I know XBL is also a paid service but that’s a different conversation

gangsta_red1317d ago

No it's an actual fact. Every comment I leave is a fact.

"And GP is a PAID service don’t you think that a PAID service should offer better quality games?"

Yes, I actually do think that a PAID service should offer better games, but as you also made mention and casually dismissed XBL is a PAID service and don't you think a PAID service should offer a better selection of games?

XBL is a paid service for ONLINE SERVICES aka online multiplayer. The free games given every month is just a bonus. Stop bitching.

Finished Batman TEW a few months ago. It was the second worst TT game I've played. Really didn't enjoy it.

I hope those that do play it get more enjoyment out of it than I did.

darthv721317d ago

Sonic generations and LoS2.... hell yeah. My 360 has been itching to play these.

nevin11317d ago

As a non Xbox gamer, why are the free games availability scattered around.

I mean Batman is available the whole month

Castlevania is available March to the 15th

Shantae is available starting March 16th

Sonic is available the 16th-31st.

Has always been like this?

shabz6661317d ago

Yep it’s always been like this. It was weird then and it’s weird now

SpeedDemon1317d ago

Yeah its been like that. They do 2 games at the 1st of the month and then the other 2 on the 15th, some of the games are available for longer periods, it's depends on what they work out with the publisher .

Smellsforfree1316d ago

You just have to "claim" it from the store within those time frames so it doesn't matter that much to people who are interested, but I agree it is kinda weird.
