The Tech-Gaming Podcast 10-2: Undone by Itagaki

Early signs point to a demure podcast, with discussions of Vita hardware and software, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword, Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, and The Simpsons Arcade Game leading off the show. However, a mention of ‘globe physics’ and alternate uses for Dead or Alive: Paradise transport the show into decidedly bawdy territory. Fortunately, a wholesome helping of Simpson’s gaming trivia, an interview with Ken from Hauppauge Computer works, and a violate round of reader mail keep the crew from becoming too uncouth.

I love the username to go with that comment.

I'd bow in front of Itagaki, but only after making sure he wasn't carrying his katana with him.

Good Vita impressions this week.

mediastudies4234d ago

Sakura Samurai sounds like fun.

This and GameEnthus are the two best indie game shows, IMO.

A relic of its time or a buried treasure from the past?

I was really hoping this would have made it into one of the collections. Like how they did with the GoW PSP games.

VenomUK586d ago

I recall just playing the start on PS Vita but not much more and many Uncharted fans wouldn't have played it either so this 'unknown' chapter could be ripe for an expanded version for PS5.

TiredGamer586d ago

Agreed here. Played it back on the Vita years ago, but never finished. The cramped Vita controls and the tiny analog sticks just didn't gel with me in a game where precise headshots are half the fun. It's the first Uncharted game that I haven't completed/Platinumed, and I think much of it is control related. Really wish it was PS TV compatible (natively).

I would definitely buy it if it were released as a PS4/PS5 version.

YoungKingDoran585d ago

If you ever play it again on Vita definitely turn on the gyro aiming assist, made it alot more fun to play and i ended up getting all the headshot trophies thanks to this- super accurate

TheEnigma313586d ago

I loved this game. It was like an extension of the first one. Why haven't we gotten an HD release yet?

TiredGamer586d ago (Edited 586d ago )

Lack of available dev resources and lack of a lucrative ROI probably. I think Sony has an opportunity to sell it as a separate, standalone HD remaster for like $20. Otherwise, the effort to convert a PS Vita game to the PS4/5 won't be worth their while. Unfortunate, but that's probably the only way it'd make financial sense.

Some of the puzzles/interactivity would have to be completely reworked. I remember having to hold the camera to a bright light. (I remember being annoyed at that part bc I was playing in bed late night while my wife was asleep next to me. Ran to the kitchen at like 3am just to get past it lol)

Also the swipe battles. I absolutely couldn't stand the final boss because the swiping felt so inaccurate and it would constantly misread gestures.

I adored the rest of the game though, and even the story! It couldn't simply just be rereleased, it needs reworking for consoles. (same reason it didn't get PS Vita TV support) The rubbing parts could still work w Dualsense/DS4 though.

I'd gladly welcome it and do hope it happens eventually!

Muigi586d ago

Glad I still have my Oled Vita.

MadLad586d ago

Sony should have tried harder to support the Vita. It ended up just a solid emulation machine that happens to have a handful of classics.

Bigman4k586d ago (Edited 586d ago )

Yeah Sony gave up on the ps vita way too fast

Bigman4k586d ago (Edited 586d ago )

I really like Uncharted:Golden Abyss on ps vita it would be dope if they remaster it for PlayStation 5
