@Visiblemode - I think it's a great game and it just looks looks beautiful. I'm not sure why it's getting lukewarm reviews?

Alot of people have complained about the cutscenes but you can easily skip them by pressing start and clicking skip. You have to do it each time but it's really not a big deal at all.

It can be difficult at times and you might have to replay a level in till you learn a Bosses patterns but that is what gives it the NES feel.

Don't actually own a Vita, but Fruit Ninja seems a bit late to the Vita party for that price. Super excited to try Ducktales though! :)

@Visiblemode It's awesome, especially if you like to hear the classic voice actors!

Also, wasn't the Killzone Open Beta supposed to be this week? Or am I jumping the gun?

I hope Payday 2 doesn't have an update twice the size of the game like the first one. Pretty sweet

@Splat well, IGN was complaining about some post boss battle sequences, not sure. I generally like hard platformers, will grab it if it comes to Vita. Thanks for the reply.

@Azikira cool, yeah the graphics look beautiful too. Think maybe you're right about the beta, but have it preordered, waiting for full retail!

I'll probably end up buying the Q-games music visualizer before it shoots up to $4.99. I play music on my PS3 almost every day so it's nice to finally get some new visuals.
