Got my refund 😍.

Not that bad,

Yes! Just checked my account and I got mine back too :)

...which is weird since I didn't receive an email from Sony like the rep said I would.

Oh well, glad I have it. Might buy a couple things in the Flash Sale, God Eater looks pretty solid.

Congrats man :D!


Thanks, buddy! Funnily enough, it's actually the third Vita I've owned. With homebrew on the Vita now possible I figured I'd jump back into my backlog with this (can't wait to finally finish Muramasa and Odin Sphere) and use my old 2000 for homebrew games. Really excited for that port of Katawa Shoujo.

It took nearly an hour and a half but I successfully applied the full body Skinomi skin for my Vita. I was really nervous beforehand but it wasn't as bad as I anticipated. I think I had a harder time applying DecalGirl skins.
 
Valkyrie Drive seems to be doing really well in UK Charts. As relatively well as Vita games can do, anyway.

It spend two weeks and #1, and now in its third week has fallen to #2.

For comparison - niche games normally chart high on their first week; tumble to mid-chart on their second week and are often gone by the third week. Occasionally they cling on longer than that as Vita sales figures in UK are anemic, but still.

So it's doing very well. Hope this makes PQube consider Uppers as well!

Do loot boxes count in the spend 100 get 15 back thing? If they do with the flash sale I'm about 10$ left to finish 100.

They should. Anything that uses your wallet should apply.

Spend $100 using your wallet for the PlayStation®Network (“PSN Wallet”) through November 1st, 2016 11:59pm PT, and receive a promotion code valued at $15 to credit to your PSN Wallet on or before November 15th, 2016 to spend on games, movies, TV shows, music and anything else that accepts PSN Wallet funds*!

https://www.playstation.com/en-us/legal/spend-100-get-15-terms-and-conditions/
 
Anybody else having trouble adding funds to their wallet through debit card? Tried PayPal and then adding the card directly. Both times they said there was an error with the card eve though I copied the information directly.

Before the Flash Sale is over I may just buy two PSN codes from Gamestop.

So, webstore keeps giving me 502 error whenever trying to add my card, and vita won't even access the store. I wonder if it would work from PS3, lol!

I'm tired of saying how terrible everything related to Sony's store is, sigh.

Is someone doing an OT for Yomawari? It's truly fantastic, one of the best horror games I've played in hears and not exactly like any others I've played either. TBH i'd rather not do an OT (it'll be bare bones) but I could

also the rolling thread thing is really disorienting when you only visit gaf every couple months

Hello Sir TapTap! Nice to see you on Gaf again after watching some of your live streams :).

I would offer to make the Yomawari OT, as I am playing through the game now for review purposes (will be publishing a preview tonight and review on Monday/Tuesday). I am taking ALOT screenshots, so let me know if you need help with an OT buddy :D.

Edit: My preview for Yomawari is live!

Bought Fuuraiki 3 for a total of 20 dollars off PlayAsia yesterday. My prowess of the Japanese language is still nowhere near as good that I'll be able to understand much of it, but it's not like I'm going to say no at that price!

Nice preview. My review went up at embargo - http://www.godisageek.com/reviews/yomawari-night-alone-review/

Liked it a lot. I wish the LE was just Yomawari so I'd get two of it. I dont want to buy two with firefly lol. I already own firefly LE.

Damn solid review man :D!

You cover a lot of aspect's of the game and I enjoyed reading it :). I am glad you enjoyed my preview and I also am enjoying the game quite a bit too. I hope my review goes live this weekend personally (quite busy today with a mid-term for a class in a few hours and gone most of the day tomorrow).

I think they LE is including Firefly just to feel more 'complete' to a degree (as both games were made by the same teams if I recall). Great work on your content and keep up the fantastic work :D.

64 GB vita memory card came in just in time for reco love. feels dirty but at least I'll recover the bulk of cost after selling my 32 gb
 
I recorded some Sengoku Otome: Legend Battle Japanese import gameplay from my PlayStation TV, showing off the basics in a sample video from the "start" of story mode.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwTMKAMQDv4

I'll also be putting up a video of the game's arcade mode shortly, which will better showcase the action bits if that's your main concern. The action from this sample doesn't quite encompass all your abilities, as it's too easy of a mission to unleash your "special" (among other things).

Anyways, very enjoyable game and there'll be a review coming soon if that's your thing. ^_^

Yeah I was just randomly looking around on the site and noticed they had one left in stock for 15 dollars, so I went for it. It was the Chinese version by the way, which is identical to the Japanese version as far as I know, except the cover art looks really dulled out for some reason.

Anyway, it'll probably reduce to that price again at some point in the future, so keep an eye out.

Yeah, they sometimes do this. I bought Ukiyo no Roushi for a reduced price and then as soon as I'd bought my copy, it went back up to full price. I'll keep a closer eye on Fuuraiki because even if I don't fully understand it, I really want to just mill around the Japanese countryside haha.

Not sure how well that usually works, heck I've seen new OTs for ports. Lacks that new thread smell and so on, discussion looks stale. I personally don't like it but I'm not sure the standard situation.

Yeah, it's great. I'll be working on a guide for it this weekend. Probably easier to coordinate with me on twitter since I know you're on there

Okay! Not good on the design stuff but I have no problem writing up the content in the thread, gathering up reviews/previews and anything else that is needed.

Thanks a lot. Looking forward to reading your review when it goes up. Good luck for the mid term!

I think it is so that they can charge 40$ for standard and 50 for LE because 2 mid tier games from them.

Thanks man! Took the mid-term on Thursday and felt I did well on it. I remembered a lot from my Fairytales and Fokelore class, so it wasn't too hard. You did a great job on your review and I hope you enjoy mine once it goes up closer to it's launch (going to be very busy this weekend XD).

I agree with you about the game bundle; they are mid-tier games from NISA, so they figure lumping them together for the LE will give it added value or something like that.

Good stuff. I wonder when they will announce coven and rose twilight whatever.

Also holy shit been playing cold steel 1 again as I nearly finished 2 to check some stuff for my super duper late review of2. These games are probably in my GOAT.

I've been playing the world of final fantasy demo on the Vita ( I have to search for it on the Vita store because it doesn't appear in the demo section...)
I'm very surprised by the game , this is a classic final fantasy but the combat system is a system based on the pokemon games . I have to be clear I might be one of the few people here that doesn't like pokemon. I don't know why objectively speaking. But I do love world of final fantasy at least for now I might give you a different opinion when I finish the game, who knows.
I'm pretty sure now I'm getting this and even when there are some critics around it I'll get exist archive too , I have been waiting for that game since it was announced.
 
quick drive by post since I am too lazy to find the other vita thread:

I didn't know that Vita has a limit on the number of photos. By limit, I mean hard limit, not space limit. I just deleted Ciel nosurge Offline (corrupted; 5gb+) and I also have some some 5~10gb free before hand.

Vita just says "can't have more contents in Photos" or something.

Apparently I love Dana too much that I took so much picture that my Vita can't handle anymore. lulz

P.S. Go fucking buy Ys VIII if you liked Celceta. For various reasons. But mostly it's basically a supercharged Celceta game and was doused in elixir of the gods upon its creation.

I regret not getting the physical version. Fuck. FUCK.

I'm not sure about the battle being based on pokemon, other than the game having pokeball when capturing finalfantasymons. Can't you still select all their learned skills using the menu?
 
From the henkaku thread:



Vita has hidden(unused?) 1.5-2.5gb of free storage.

Makes sense, as we already new the original Vita and PSTV share a NAND chip - meaning that the 1GB of storage on the PSTV should have been on the OLED as well, but was locked out in the firmware.

Sony be sneaky.

just bought a PS4 and LOL, realized that my current library consist of last gen game like TLOU Remastered, Sleeping Dogs, and Tomb Raider.

Hope that next week NA Halloween sale feature Bloodborne (or even better, Uncharted 4).


Guys, i have a question.

Say that my friend lent me his account, granted it is not set as primary in my PS4. Is it possible to play game from that and have multiple progress or save for game that use auto-save like Witcher 3.

Tried to make 2 user profile with the same PSN Account but it won't let me.

I have hundreds of screenshots, i don't think it has such a limit or at least it's the first time i hear about it.

There's a limit of 9999 photos. When you try to take the 10,000th photo/screenshot the gallery protests.
Yes, I did just screenshot my screenshots folder a bunch of times to get me high enough to take that photo, but to be fair I was only 32 pictures off anyway.

So the limit is high, but it's there.

I've run up against it a lot. I take a lot of screenshots :|

Those photos take a lot of space from the memory , you should move them and continue to take more photos.
