  1. The Vita is amazing, it has great exclusives, like Soul Sacrifice or Killzone: Mercenary, plenty of ports for stacking/playing your favourite games while traveling, remote play so you can play PS4 even when you're not at home, a beautiful OLED screen that makes it the absolute best place to play PS1 classics, it's comfy and feels great to use, has outstanding battery life (can last for months on standby.) It is without a doubt the best handheld I've owned (for reference, the others being GBC, GBA, DS, 3DS, PSP)
  2. #290 - LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham I liked this game a lot more than The LEGO Movie on Vita. It has the same level structure where they're all incredibly short, but there are a lot of them, however unlike LEGO Movie, you don't need to repeat these levels over and over and over. There are no multi-challenges, no time trials, no "don't get hit"s. It's just a traditional LEGO game, find all the various collectibles, do some relatively simple combat challenges (3 counters, 3 ground finishers, kill x enemies, etc.), and I liked that there was a hub world as well (which Movie didn't have.) The console version is definitely better, which is to be expected, but I enjoyed this for what it was. The story was nothing special, and it's quite forgettable (I remembered literally none of it going into this after the console version, which should speak volumes on the quality of it lol), but that's fine. I don't really play LEGO games for a deep story. This is one of the best of the Vita LEGO games I've played so far and I can definitely recommend it if you enjoy the franchise and don't mind something slightly worse than what you'd expect on consoles.

  5. #289 - Steins;Gate I am so thankful that PS+ gave me the chance to replay this masterpiece for free. I began this year with Steins;Gate 0, so (more or less) ending the year by replaying the original was a nice treat. I had been hoping that this would be a PS+ game for months, ever since finishing 0 honestly, and with time running out (as Vita/PS3 games stop being added in March) I had began to give up hope, so I borrowed my brother's Netflix account and watched the anime instead lol. And then, literally not even a week after I finished the anime, PS+ announces this to be free. I kinda wish I hadn't watched the anime, because it was all so fresh in my mind as a result, but that wasn't a huge issue. Being a replay (or a re-read really) all the suspense and tension is gone, but the raw emotion and power behind the scenes is very much still there. Knowing the outcome of the story also adds some weight to the scenes too, and makes the slice of life beginning more meaningful. It was a joy to watch all these characters and relationships come together again. Okabe and Kurisu are the standouts by far, but the rest of the cast is fantastic too. I hope that this being on PS+ drives more people to try it out, because it really is phenomenal. I also hope that the relatively slow start doesn't cause people to skip it all, because it's worth reading. I'm excited for Steins;Gate Elite next year, especially as it includes a spin-off game that was never localized before. I'm not sure I'll get it day 1, especially as it releases so soon after my replay of this, but it will absolutely be played eventually. ...I kinda want to replay 0 now lol. Maybe I'll pick up the Vita stack in a sale at some point. El. Psy. Kongroo.

      Congrats, now onto Zero.  It's like the first but way way more depressing.

      I've already played 0, this is my second time doing the original :P 0 was so good that I wanted to go back and see all the characters grow again, and PS+ provided me the opportunity for "free" which I'm happy with.

  8. Hey, if God of War 2 and 3 (since it'll be a trilogy) retroactively fix the many problems with the first game, I'll be more accepting of it as a sequel. As it stands though, it's just a narrative mess that clashes with the original saga multiple times, causing it to fall apart. I hear the novelization tries to remedy a lot of the holes, but in doing so it just raises even more questions, because the novel explanation doesn't make much sense either. The gameplay is ok I guess, especially when you unlock the second weapon, but the puzzles are always a joke, the climbing is slower and somehow even more obvious than it is in Uncharted (thankfully, unlike Uncharted, there's a lore explanation for why all climbable ledges are painted so brightly), and the removal of jump is a huge letdown since that means there's no longer any platforming involved. Really though, despite my issues with the gameplay, they're minor at best compared to how utterly disappointed and disgusted I was by the main story and how it treats the original saga like trash.
  9. No. I like that he speaks out against on things like lootboxes regularly, but at the same time his whole shtick is outrage and negativity and controversy. I mean I genuinely can't think of the last time I saw him post a video that fully praised something or was about something he thought was genuinely fun or great. The constant negativity and hate gets tiring.
  10. Burnout Paradise Remastered has a regional stack - EU and NA. If you own the Europe version of the game, you wont be able to join North American sessions, or vice versa.
  11. God of War was great fun until the newest one which had an awful story and rather bland gameplay. Uncharted, on the other hand, I hate the second game and only found 1 and 3 just kinda ok, but I also really enjoy 4 (apart from the balancing issues on Crushing) and Golden Abyss (and Fight for Fortune if we're counting that) and Lost Legacy had some of the best puzzles in the series (though I disliked that large open chapter and some of the vehicle combat), so Uncharted more or less ended on a strong note unlike GoW which degenerated into something unrecognizable. Which means Uncharted wins for me unless God of War redeems itself with the next two games.
  12. Feels like the devs have sold out with this and Word Sudoku. You used to have to do every puzzle in the game, and even some time trials and misc objectives, but now you only have to do a few puzzles. It's like they recognized trophy whores were buying the game and have dumbed everything down to accommodate, and I'm not sure how to feel about it. I love Picross but seeing how these games have evolved has me steering clear of supporting it.
  13. #288 - Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep This felt so much better on PS4 than it did on PS3. I enjoyed this far more than I was expecting to, and the grind wasn't anywhere near as bad as I remember (and I didn't even do it that long ago lol.) The story is great, the gameplay is great (although quite unbalanced. Magnega breaks mobs and Thunder Surge breaks bosses, and you can spam heals, but the start of the game before you get all this is quite hard at least), and the story is far better paced than it was in KH2. It also doesn't take forever for the gameplay to really start getting good like it did in KH2 either. I still think Re:CoM has the best pacing of all, but coming from KH2 to this was really nice. The story was as good as I remember, I really like Ventus, Aqua and Terra as protagonists, and none of them can catch a break. Seeing them all visit the same worlds, yet very, very rarely meet each other is kinda sad. Especially for Aqua since she's actually aware of it because Terra/Ven tend to get to the worlds before her and then the Disney characters mention them. The final conflict is great and sets up a lot of hanging plot threads for KH3 to pick up on, and I hope that they all pay off well. Not long until we find out. Due to the nature of having 3 playable characters, and having them all visit the same worlds, the Disney worlds here actually felt like they tied into the plot much more than they did in KH2 during the first visits or a lot of KH1, which I really liked. Usually in KH all the Disney stuff just feels like filler, but here it didn't and that was a very welcome change. I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed stacking this. With this done, I've now completed all 12 KH games and am fully prepared for KH3. I cannot wait to see how it all concludes and comes together, because they've been building towards this for over a decade now.
