    @jeremy.parish@orient no need to get all clique'd up and NeoGAF about it. Mega Man fans are on all sorts of platforms, and I'm sure WiiU owners can just play it on 3DS right? I'm going to take the high road, though, and agree that this collection should be on WiiU as well. I hope you enjoy Bloodstained's WiiU tier as much as I enjoy the Vita tier.

    ...but, just so you know, Vita owners got a metric truckload of games and products that we wanted and wouldn't have had otherwise, from actually asking for them. From unlikely indie obscurities, to PSN title parity within reason and crossbuy/play/save, to physical copies and localizations that don't quit, to PSOne compatibility + the full drop in SCEA + more PSOne/PSP titles added, to 64GB cards... and so on. Call it Operation Rainfall if you want to see it in a light that makes it easier to relate to.Edited June 2015 by Unknown

    @detten agreed... guess Capcom's logic is "why sell them a comprehensive collection for a fair, single price, when we can sell them the Rockman imports individually, make them pay more to get less games and deal with jank"

    If SNK can give me 3 different ways to play and own the Metal Slug games on the same platform, and not consider it a conflict of interest, Capcom can do the same.

    I would have enjoyed working on an idea like that. The encounter/battle chart kicked over my dominoes.

    One of the worst is ones that encourage spam and poor behavior in online communities. LittleBigPlanet 1's community was inadvertently tainted by trophies and pins that were tied to getting a certain amount of "hearts" and plays on your levels, or reviewing and rating X number of levels. Which just lead to a torrent of spam and reflexive downrating by millions of people. It really had a negative effect on the way the community behaved and what kind of user generated content was easy to discover.

    The original idea behind the trophies was to get people to try create mode and community interaction, but I guess it was hard to see the trajectory, and it carried through to the other games habitually, even though the trophies weren't... especially with everything published being forwards compatible as legacy content. When LBP1 went free on PS+, monkey-see-monkey-do amplified it even more.Edited June 2015 by Unknown

    I was a big Civ 5 addict for awhile. I guess this same line of reasoning is why I spent so many years playing and creating in LittleBigPlanet too, as my version of WoW.

    I'm sure the way my attention works now is probably why I responded to the recent "what are you playing article" with Zen Pinball 2 and Helldivers, instead of one of the millions of other things from my backlog that have a definitive beginning and end. It's not like I never knock out something like Last of Us or Evil Within in one clean sweep and don't enjoy myself immensely though. I suppose it's just more comfortable to sink into something malleable and non-committal, a lot of times.Edited 2 times. Last edited June 2015 by Unknown

    The new Portal table on Zen Pinball 2, either on PS4 or Vita. Also realized the other day ZP2 has splitscreen local co-op when a friend came over. Talk about a good time.

    Some more Helldivers here and there since the new update that added all kinds of new stuff.

    I might get Witcher 3 next week and get into something meaty if it clicks with me.

    Just in time for Hatred I guess. Such overreact. So 90's. Much televangelism.

    The game has potential to be great, but that movie is in another astral plane.

    @Trancephalic I don't know, and I'm not trying to make an equivalence in quality, just in the business model and mainstream acquiescence to it.

    Holy crap. Crazy when you think about it. This is kind of what mobile games are doing today with endless gold dust, eh?
