    Phantasy Star IV, Faery Tale and Sword of Vermillion.

    I didn't play any of the turn-based RPGs back then, as I couldn't stand the traditional slow and endless random-battle grind of JRPGs. Hence I only played adventure games that had a realtime battle system like Faery Tale, Vermillion and Zelda.

    These days I've begun to enjoy turn-based RPGs also. I only recently played the Phantasy Star games for the first time and enjoyed their stories very much, although the amount of grinding you have to do in those games still felt kind of mind-numbing. Backlog permitting, I'm going to play the classic SNES RPGs one day too.Edited 6 days ago by Unknown

    My favorite summer gaming memory is playing games outdoors on my imported GameBoy in the summer of 1989, and on the Atari Lynx a bit later. It was a revelation to be able to play anywhere and for that reason it'll remain my fondest summer gaming memory.

    I'm in the Persona 5 backlog boat as well. That and Nier Automata, which I haven't even started, will be my summer lull entertainment. Far Cry 5 is another one I haven't started yet. I would've had the time to play it in June, but instead I unwisely spent most of June chasing the platinum trophy of TLoU on PS3 - even though I've already platinumed it on PS4. That's how backlogs get worse.

    Sprint Vector and Moss were two really solid releases for PSVR. I've been keeping up with VR releases, but I've missed many of the games on this list. Sweet summer lull is here though and it's time for me to catch up.

    Got it delivered today already. I'm from Europe though, so the rerelease seems to have happened a bit earlier here. I missed it the first time around, but was glad to have this second opportunity to get it at the regular price.Edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown

    Posted in The NES Classic Getting New Release on June 29, And You May Even Get to Buy One This Time

    It's a great and a must-have handheld for any Playstation fan at least. In addition to all the Vita games, hundreds of PSP classics and around 150 PS1 classics are available on it. And thanks to the VIta's vibrant OLED screen, those classic games have never looked better.

    Commercially it was undoubtedly a failure. The estimated 15M lifetime sales absolutely pale in comparison to the PSP's 80M+ and the AAA game landscape on the Vita was always barren compared to the PSP. The mainstream consumer for the most part abandoned dedicated handhelds and moved to their smartphones. Nintendo was still able to somehow make the 3DS a success by supporting it with tremendous effort, but by now even they seem to have given up on the concept of the dedicated handheld and have replaced it with the Switch's hybrid idea - to which the unlucky Vita and the Wii U can both be seen as predecessors.

    My picks for signature PS Vita games are Danganronpa, Freedom Wars and TxK.Edited 2 times. Last edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown

    Posted in The Vita Deserves to be Remembered as More Than a Failure

  • Avatar for SuperShinobi SuperShinobi 25 days ago

    I think the reason why this prediction will fail is that AAA game file sizes are getting bigger again - around 100GB per game with 4K assets, while average internet speeds and data caps in crucial markets like the U.S. aren't rising fast enough to keep up. The average U.S. internet data speed is still only 18 Mbps in 2018.Edited 4 weeks ago by Unknown
