Everybody's Golf / Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational |OT| You're invited too!

Ok, I just picked this up based on one of your impressions in the Official Thread. Someone said something to the effect of how much fun the game was, how it was the best online Vita game, and how strong the GAF community was. So I went out today and bought it.



Feel free to add me to your Friend's List or the List of VITA Hot Shot Golf Owners!

I'm happy that I picked up this game along with my Vita. Really digging it and the online is amazing. Never got into the series, but I did like their tennis version on the PSP. Hard to put down now that it's getting a bit tougher.
 
Got my first hole in one and first eagle in back to back holes! Then just took 3rd in my first online match (big cup). Such a great game. Addicted like OoB all over again.

I'm having a lot of problems with putting. I can never seem to judge the severity of the slope so I always end up missing. Any tips?
This is why they should of left the terrain line/graph in, I'm getting to grips without it but it was a lot easier to gauge with the graph.

Only advice I can say is keep an eye on the indicator telling you how far you are above/below the pin, after a while you learn how much extra power is needed, for example, for a 10cm slope you my need an extra half segment of power, 23cm a full segment etc, those are just examples and are not necessarily accurate.
 
Heard raves about this series for years, but I never tried it until I got my Vita. Charming, fun, arcadey without sacrificing depth--definitely my favorite launch game!

Eventually I'll get around to venturing online. Gotta get my skillz up first, though.

Excellent turnout these last 2 matches. We had a full 30 going in the game about to start.

The Eagle I hit in the last match was pretty amazing and would not have happened had it not been for having the turbo spin ball.

DAMN, that last hole in the current game. I hit it near the water and it bounced off the wooden plant and back into play. SO LUCKY. Landed in sand but manages to save birdie. What a break.
 
O_O Did that just bounce off the flag, drop straight down, and roll right in the hole? Congrats!

Does anybody else watch their replays over and over? There is something so beautiful about a well hit shot.

Anybody on the fence about getting this game should watch this video.
my favorite replay was when the ball went to the cup, and swirrled around it 4 times, before finally slowly falling into the hole.
 
I've been playing on and off since the 15th. I still haven't got any hole in ones/double eagles yet though.

I pretty much used a maxed loyalty Max with Big Air club/ball for the harder events.

The requirements for crowns is right on the picture screen, when you select the event.

make sure the pudding isn't too soggy but that just ruins everything
What kind of zombie powers compelled that ball to go them last 3 inches :O
I think the game calculates the shot will go in and then it plays around with the ball a bit at the last second... for entertainment.

My hole in one was kind of weird too... the ball was going straight in but right at the last second it swirled around the cup 5-6 times.

Kind of funny... makes the shots more fun to watch. I enjoy the spectacle.

Affectionately called the "Hot Shots Ball Trolling Engine".

Which scared me earlier today... my ball did a long roll towards a river, and stopped EXACTLY AT THE EDGE.
 

How do you get the Platinum crowns? I don't understand what they mean by "Win with only the set club number".

The Bronze 100% GIR with rain and gale force winds one is annoying the crap out of me right now. I have 36 crowns complete, soo close to finishing.

Thank you so much. Whoever wrote the insert is a damn idiot.
*looks at insert

lol, never bothered to read the instructions, I just went straight to putting the code in (used to doing it on a PS3).

I think step 4 is wrong too... the codes aren't case sensitive, as far as I know.

No, they're not case sensitive. You can enter the codes in lowercase and when it tabs over to the next input field, it fills in with caps automatically.

edit: Actually it seems to fill in the caps as you type, I never noticed that before.
 
Tell me about it. I've barely touched Uncharted and Wipeout. I also want to buy a game or too off the Store, but havent bothered yet.
Yeah, I've forced myself to play Katamari and BlazBlue...Otherwise, this would absorb my Vita. Which I guess is good - I'm getting my monies worth like mad!
