I don't know, the combat in Silent Hill feels too simple and repetitive to me. Do you ever get skills to change up the gameplay a bit?

Tried the demo? The only thing that it's missing is a large weapon selection and the possibility of story branching. Otherwise it seems like a good representation of the game.

Honestly, I was a bit shocked at the low quality of the graphics. Given the power of the Vita, the frame rate issues in some of the rooms (if you turn on the flashlight) and the low-detail models are kind of ridiculous. If it weren't for the lighting, this could almost be a PSP game. Well, maybe the can improve it a bit until release.

So, now that there is finally good PS1 games on the vita store, I was thinking of trying an FF, and I narrowed it down to FF6 and FF9. Which do you think is better, graphics being 2d or 3d dont matter to me,and more importantly, how are the load times and slowdowns?

GAF, I just got a $20 PSN card. What should I buy? I'm tempted to buy the Ridge Racer silver pass, but I know I shouldn't.

i don't even know.. it says "And that classic too..." after the psp bit, and the icons are different...but meh :S GT on PSP looks ok actually, from what I remember there were a lot of these annoying white lines or seams in the track, will check it out on youtube..

After playing the first 8 or 9 chapters in Uncharted GA I think this is tied with Uncharted 2 as my favorite in the series. Am I crazy? The impression I got from the comments here is that this was a below average game but I'm enjoying this a ton (so far).
Wait until you get to the rafting chapter. Just purely on dialoge alone, that scene alone makes it the best Uncharted in the series... well, just as good as anything in U2.

Siliconera thinks that it has 6 endings and if you look at the book you can see a very good number of weapons ;)

I thought the Book of Memories demo was just... okay, I guess... seemed very repetitive.

Watch a walkthrough of GA and dude what the hell is up with your avatar?

People usually call FF6 the best FF, but performance wise, FF9 is a little better(faster load times, for example).

I see LKS on the US store has screenshots on its page. So I thought, 'Awesome, screenshots for every game now!' Then I check every other game and of course there are none. Well, FIFA.

To everyone, try the silent hill demo at least 2 times, everything is random, and try different karma too. This is the only way to get the essence of the game

How are load times on Chrono Trigger for Vita? Improved by increasing the loading speed or anything?

I'll have to buy it later since im still playing Persona 3 Portable. 53 hours in and only on the 89th floor. Plus level 39. Grindinnnnn

Silent Hill was interesting. Definitely didn't have a SH vibe to it. Seems fun enough that it'll be worth a play, at least.

Grimy, get RO because ACIII is probably going to be better than Lady Liberty. :(

how are the load times on the ps1 version of ff6 on vita generally?

I haven't personally tested, but I think some people in other threads have claimed that the load times are not noticeably improved in those two games. Something about how they're coded, idk.

Comments in this thread or gaf in general? I don't think I have heard many people in here not like, it generally spoken of with a fair amount of praise.

Mostly GAF in general but I do recall some comments in the part4 discussion thread not speaking highly of the game. Not that I really care though, I'm having a blast and hopefully the game keeps this pace and balance between exploring/platforming/combat. Oh, and the graphics...so good.

Except for the ending, it keeps getting better the more you play.
You even get some better partners later on.

Tried the Silent Hill demo: I kinda had fun...but I can see it getting repetitive. Also the presentation is very low budget, and PSP level. We know the Vita can do ALOT better. Lighting was nice though.

I skipped a couple pages. Did we get PSM today or not?

No, you're right. It's on par or better than Uncharted 2 on all counts.

Supposed to be the 3rd, but someone commented on the Blog post that it's "tonight" - so maybe midnight or something. I dunno.

Here's what Kass thinks

My bet is 8pm PDT, since that is when the Oct 3rd store publish is in Japan.

So we might have the service launch before Sony even announces the launch games!

Can OLED screens improve in the future with those spots on black screens? I play my Vita a lot at night lately and it's noticing a lot more since it covers over a third of the screen

I think I head some gaffers say the blotches may reduce over time. I think my Vita has less blotches now than what it had 8 months ago.

The Zero Escape demo was pretty good. I'm sold on it. It and P4 Golden will probably be my first real Vita purchases.

Siliconera thinks that it has 6 endings and if you look at the book you can see a very good number of weapons ;)

I figured as much. One or two areas in the demo suggested multiple endings.
