J-Forest-Esq commented on First Impressions: Sound Shapes:
Can't wait for this one.
J-Forest-Esq commented on PS Vita Video Showcases More Apps and Games:
J-Forest-Esq commented on Sony Exhibits PS Vita Game Cartridge and Case:
Physical copies. I get a lot pleasure out of box art so I was really looking forward to seeing what they look like. Doesn't disappoint.
J-Forest-Esq commented on External Battery Extends Vita's 3-5 Hour Life:
It's nice to have the option at least.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Final Fantasy X HD, FFXIII-2 Confimred for PS ...:
His hair, is just ridiculous.
You can still buy X new and at a presumably cheaper price so I think I'll skip that one. I guess the other one answers the RPG hole in the Vita library.
J-Forest-Esq commented on PS Vita Launches December 17 in Japan:
Oh, the envy!
J-Forest-Esq commented on Super Monkey Balls Rolls Onto PS Vita:
I'm not too big a fan of SMB, but everything on the Vita just seems to tempt me.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Meet the Cast of Extreme Escape Adventure: Goo...:
Does the rabbit have a speaking part?
J-Forest-Esq commented on Rumour: Vita Reaches Japan on 12th November:
Is it likely to be released all over the west simultaneously?
J-Forest-Esq commented on 18 New Vita Games to Be Revealed at Tokyo Game...:
They're certainly pulling out all the stops, not to mention the notes in my wallet. As Magi says though, I would like a groovy RPG.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Shinobido 2 Confirmed as Vita Launch Title:
Not on my list of priorities.
J-Forest-Esq commented on First New Little King's Story Vita Shots Take ...:
Phew. That was a close one, but it looks like everything's dandy with the visuals. No need to worry.
J-Forest-Esq commented on New Little King's Story Coming to Vita:
Oh no! I glossed over the bit about realistic proportions. I hope it's not too drastic...
J-Forest-Esq commented on Gravity Daze Now Gravity Rush, New Screenshots...:
Hand-to-hand combat, gravity control and a terrifically sleek art style. That's a very interesting package.
Whatever little doubt there was in my mind about purchasing a Vita has now been dispelled to the void. Fantastic news.
J-Forest-Esq commented on PlayStation Vita Launching 2012 in Europe and ...:
Bugger. So much for it launching in September. It gives me more time to save up for it, but...it gives me too much time. This is very disappointing.
J-Forest-Esq commented on PS Vita Doubles as a PS3 Controller:
I don't really get this. How long is Sony planning on keeping the PS3 around for? I thought it only had a year or two left in its lifespan which means the Vita won't overlap with it by much. If that is the case, then surely there won't be a great many PS3 games with this feature anyway?
Of course, if the PS3 is sticking with us for a bit longer, then all I'm saying is that the analogue sticks on the Vita look far superior to the 3DS-esque versions found on the Wii U tablet.
J-Forest-Esq commented on PS Vita UK Release Date and Price Listed by Ga...:
Eh?! The first of September?! That's only It's the 1st of August now so... one month away! If this is to be believed, then I've got to earn some extra dosh pronto. It's great that it's coming so soon, but I've only got enough wonga for my Xenoblade pre-order, let alone a new console :S. I wouldn't mind if it came out maybe a month later to give me some leeway.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Talking Point: Does PlayStation Vita Have Nint...:
If Nintendo hadn't lowered the 3DS price, the Vita would have swept it to the side like a rotten apple. That was a very necessary move. Either way, I've already bought the 3DS and I'd already decided to get a Vita so nothing has changed, for me at least. Do I think the Vita will eat into 3DS sales? Probably not, in fact I'd say the 3DS only has itself to blame if it doesn't sell well. The same people who bought the PSP will buy the Vita, plus a few others like myself, but it's possible many people who bought the DS won't buy the 3DS, which will level the playing field. While I don't think they're going to impact each other too much, the handheld race is still going to be a lot closer.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Supremacy MMA Bruises Vita Later This Year:
Not a big fan of "unparalleled quantities of bloodshed" just for the sake of it. Also, I don't see what Milton Keynes has to do with anything...?
@Zephren Give it some time, the site has only just started and besides the Vita isn't even out yet. It will pick up eventually, but it's probably not worth hoping this is going to be quite as popular as NLife; it's only one handheld after all (no offence). Anyway, from experience I'd wager there are far more people reading that aren't commenting.
J-Forest-Esq commented on PS Vita Dev Corraborates System's RAM Reduction:
So what does RAM actually do? And why did they cut it in half? Baaaaa
"Four times that of an iPhone". This just reminded me of something I read earlier. Apparently, in a couple of years time, due to the constant regeneration/cycle of phones the processing power (or whatever) will be more than that of the PS Vita. Which means it will be interesting to see what happens in the handheld race, especially seeing as power is a fairly big selling point for the Vita.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Making Music is Stupid Easy in Sound Shapes:
"a great jumping off point for gamers who also have an interest in creating music". Perfect. This has shot up my wishlist. Always wanted to do this sort of thing, but never had the musical know-how to write the stuff.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Capcom COO: Monster Hunter Vita Has To Happen:
Good news indeed. Glad I held off on Tri.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Hideo Kojima Talks Fox Engine, Vita and Transf...:
@Kid_Crono I think it's something he cooked up more recently than that. Good to see he's thinking about the Vita, although it's not exactly a big surprise.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Naughty Dog: Vita & PS3 Can Deliver Wii U Expe...:
Just how long is Sony planning to keep the PS3 around for? I thought it was only meant to last another two years or so, the Vita won't overlap it by much will it? Anyway, I doubt they'd do that, too expensive with two consoles compared to just the one for the Wii U.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Welcome to VitaGamr!:
Here's to approximately five more years of top-notch VITA coverage! :')
J-Forest-Esq commented on 5 Things You Might Not Know About Dragon's Crown:
As long as you can warp about the place, avoiding trailing back and forth too much, this should be fantastic.
J-Forest-Esq commented on PS Vita Dev Kit is Undoubtedly Retro:
I wouldn't say the PSP Go was retro exactly. Although I wouldn't mind something a little bigger than this in the future. That Dev kit looks too small. also, should there be a "see" somewhere in that penultimate sentence?
J-Forest-Esq commented on BlazBlue on PS Vita Has All New Stories and Modes:
I'm not surprised they haven't "nailed down" control options for the rear touch panel. That thing's going to be tough to develop for, especially for a fighter. I'm looking forward to seeing what they can come up with though.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Watch the PSVita Do Face Recognition and Giant...:
The blinking on those avatars was a bit out of control...
J-Forest-Esq commented on Broken:
Broken...? What is?
J-Forest-Esq commented on First Impressions: Little Deviants:
I thought the Hole Roll Control part of it was the whole game. I wasn't expecting this to be so good, guess I should stop dismissing it as "just another mini-game collection". I'm trusting you on this one
J-Forest-Esq commented on New Dev Team Handling LittleBIGPlanet Vita:
Having never played a Little Big Planet before, as long as it's good, the change of developer doesn't matter to me.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Little Deviants Trailer Rolls Into View:
Oh, I thought this was solely a platformer, not a mini-game collection. A bit disappointing really.
J-Forest-Esq commented on Sony's New Uncharted: Golden Abyss Trailer is ...:
The touch controls look a little bit tacked on for my liking. Looks beautiful though.
J-Forest-Esq commented on First Impressions: Playstation Vita:
Looking forward to this thing. Looking forward to the development of this site too.
