Clear shell that holds the memory card and game. Pretty bummed about that but my friend is getting me a case.

Yeah, uncharted definitely pushed me over the edge to buy one at launch, and I don't regret it one bit. Lots of great console quality games on the go, and Gravity Rush is such a treat.

This is going to be my first Assassin's creed since Assassin's creed 1 (didn't have very fond memories, especially after my save got erased). I'm hoping for the best, it has a really nice setting and I like the character. Just waiting for some more user impressions to get me really hyped.

Uncharted single-handedly made me buy a Vita and I loved it. This game looks really good from that stream...

I would assume from the lack of shacking and the fact that he seems to be able to move his hands and probably the vita it self, It would likely be some sort of webcam directly attatched to the face of the console.

If they had something like that, which they had just mentioned on the stream that they didn't, the video would look much better than it is now (with direct feed and what not).

Besides, you can see the guy's finger doing the touch controls on multiple occasions throughout the stream.

Yep! Holy crap, I still can't believe they unlocked this at this hour. Can't seem to find MW or Ragnarok Oddyssey, though. All good, time to play AC!

There's a patch already.

The animation is so good, and her running animation is 100 times better than Desmond/Altair/Ezio. The direct feed pictures that were posted earlier didnt do the game justice, it looks so much better on the vita. Also ran into at least 7+ npcs in one scene already.

Search for "liberation" and it will be there. I also found AC3 season pass by just searching for "assassin". I wanted to get both this month so I could take advantage of the spend $100 get $20 back October deal.
EDIT: too late.

how does the framerate feel to ya'll?

it feels kind of laggy/inconsistent to me, trying to get used to it, frequent dips. played the first couple of missions.

I may just get the AC bundle from PSN now. My Newegg orders won't be here anytime soon. I'm thinking no earlier than Friday night.

The opening to the game is pretty smart. Can't say I quite understand how they go about setting up the lead character's actions, but the explanation for the Animus is a clever one.

You as the player are basically Desmond now.

Played the game a bit. Thought I'd post some impressions.

The game is assassins creed. Plain and simple. There are some new mechanics, like dressing up different clothes for different abilities, but by and large, it is the same formula. Climbing feels more nimble and faster than before, and combat is still the same ol' counter to win. Multiplayer is just an ios type game where you send henchmen to various nodes on a world map and gain points, which is disappointing. But the single player mode, thus far, appear to be a full fledged assassins creed game, with no compromises as far as the gameplay is concerned.

Technically, the game is pretty good. Framerate has dips, but is perfectly playable, and yes, the game has aliasing. There are plenty of pedestrians on the streets, and at a busy intersection, i can see up to maybe 20 pedestrians when I pan the camera around, so no worries about the city feeling dead. I really like the music and soundtrack, but man, the French accent annoys me to no end.

That is about all I can say for now.

Urgh...that's what's stopping me from buying it now since I got bored of AC1, 2, and Brotherhood but a part of me still wants to get it.
