Tagged this thread. Forgot how great the Vita titles are. Now if only in 2017, Sony would reduce memory card prices.

Really hope you can get Wheels of Aurelia on Vita. Looks neat, I've been holding off on PS4 version in anticipation. Just FYI, as long as it's running alright, I'd probably take it :P

Also very keen to see what your surprise announcements are :)

I've given up on Snapshot. I loved it on Steam. It's a shame as it was such a great game that more people needed to experience. The Vita and PS3 versions were announced in 2012 as coming out that fall. There was even a playable demo on retail demo units at one point. The developer, Retro Affect, pretty much disappeared from social media in 2013. They randomly reappeared in late 2014 to tweet about trying to get a grant, and disappeared again. Since then nothing but crickets... Then the crickets died and there was nothing but deafening silence.

This was the last time I heard from developer: http://www.psnstores.com/2014/10/sna...-ps3-and-vita/

Hints seemed to suggest that a PS4 version was in the works, and news would be coming 'soon,' but after another two years, I think their definition of 'soon' may be less of a human construct, and more of a tortoise from Galapagos perspective.

Some of the games in the OP are definitely canceled/vaporware.

Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer for sure.

Since when was BoI Afterbirth confirmed for Vita?

Definitely a lot of games that are M.I.A.

Can't remember the last time we heard about the console ports of Legend of Raven.

Does this have a reversible cover with everything in English?

No, this is the "Chinese Asian English" release. The picture doesn't show it, but the game title on the spine is also in Chinese. There is also an "English Asian English" release of SAO:HF, which is a lot more uncommon.

For more about the differences, see: http://thevitalounge.net/forum/threa...releases.2198/

The PS3 version is still up on the EU Store. Weird that only the Vita version was delisted.

That depends on the situation , I had 60 games on PSM. Psm is gone. I cannot re download a majority of them and cannot erase the ones downloaded. As I said . Physical is the best situation I can even lend or sale the game.

If ever there was a game that needs a rebalance its that game. Higher difficulty, less health for enemies late in the game (they take way to long to kill, makes the levels feel monotonous without challenge), and more enemy variety. Then I'd buy it again. Oh, and speed the game up while they are at it.

Funnily enough, my local Grainger Games got a restock of Amazing Spider Man for Vita recently, a new copy appeared on shelves. Which I thought was kinda odd.

Hey, at least the game got a physical release so it's not gone forever!

Weird, since FuturLab did ask last year if people were intested in a LRG print for the game. I guess there must be another competitor entering the business.

You are right, but with the games go the patches.

I wouldn't want to play most games released this gen on version 1.0.... some are outright broken. So it really doesn't matter if you buy physical when you still need the updates.

If it appears on Badland Indie's website, it probably means they are not just distributing the game, but publishing it too.

Well, they didn't manage a retail release of their own title (Dex) recently, while they did get the PS4 version out at retail.

I can't imagine it being true really. Soedesco/Rain Games hinted that Teslagrad's retail run didn't sell so well, I don't see why these would do better.

But I actually think Badland and PQube are one and the same company. Or both subsidiaries of the same holding or something. And PQube has an extensive record of Vita releases by now.

At retail it tends to be PS4 games. OlliOlli: Epic Combo Edition and OlliOlli2 are probably the main ones people will have heard of.
Pqube works with them as a distributor sometimes (most of the time), which is why if you look up some of the games they've published (Anima, Dead Synchronicity, Dex, Heart & Slash, Zenith) they're sometimes listed as Pqube games instead, even though the logo is obviously BadLands.

Valkyrie Drive Bhikkhuni.

As for a possible Uppers localization, eh, by far Takaki's worst game so I would't pay more than 20 bucks for it.

Don't bring down this high, bro :(

Un-related, but MilitAnt devs still insist they're releasing a Vita version:

https://twitter.com/MilitAntGame/sta...70326028292097

This kinda bombed critically on PS4 and I assume commercially too, but there you go.

All of them for PS4 and PC unless noticed: Anima: Gate of Memories, OlliOlli (both the Combo release and 2 standalone), Zenith, Heart & Slash, Dex, Ginger Beyond the Crystal and Dead Synchroncity (only PS4). All of them, except OlliOlli and Dex, are Spanish-developed games.

It would be weird that after not releasing OlliOlli on Vita, Badland would publish a Vita retail release of Axiom Verge and Velocity 2X.

AFAIK they are not related in any way. Badland is the Spanish distributior of PQube and PQube is the UK distributor of Badland, but nothing more than that.
