I will share with you my review of GOW:Ascension because I know some people here also have PS3 :D

The best GOW game yet!!! it is SPARTACULAR!!!

This game is everything I have expected for it to be; Brutal and Spectacular! This is the most refined GOW game yet (YES EVEN BETTER THAN GOW3), with great combat additions, great variaty on the scenery, nice puzzles and great pacing. I know that it is not as Epic as GOW3, but that is because of it being a prequel, so Kratos cant fight a Titan or other things like that, but still it is freaking epic and ultra fun to play.

The combat mechanics have some important changes. first of all you have a rage bar (like in previous GOW games) but when it fills, Kratos does more damage, and can do more moves. You fill it when you attack, and loose some when you are hit. So the game emphasis is to be very aggressive, while dodging in order to prevent your rage bar to get empty. It really changes the dynamic of the combat and makes it more tense, and satisfying. And also, instead of having it full and have more moves, and do more damage, you can unleash it in one heavy blow that deals damage to every enemy nearby. So you have to see which tactic to use depending on the situation.

The weapons system in Ascension is really nice implemented in this game. For me better than in GOW3, because of instead getting different kinds of the same blades (that are not as useful as the original), you alter the original blades with elemental power and thus enabling you to some really crazy stuff, and also you have the ability of using weapons dropped in the stage an complement your combos with lots of great stuff, or if you dont feel like picking them up, there is a new melee system that is also really sweet. You can also use some gadgets in combat and stop time. really really sweet!!

The grapple here is changed. Now you grab opponents with R1 instead of circle, and now you can do a lot more stuff while you have grabbed them. You can either hit the one you grabbed, throw him against other enemies, or even while grabbing him fight other dudes. The combat is freaking awesome as you may be already expecting.

Another addition to combat is that when a monster is about to die, and you trigger the killing minigame, there are some enemies, that offer a QTE-less minigame, and now you are the one to dodge and hit him when having the chance. There are also the other minigames with QTEs, but they are done really good too, so they dont take the action out of the game. In fact they bring a quite stylish cinematic appeal to the gameplay.

The soundtrack is the best of any GOW game yet. Even though it has at times music featured in other GOW games, they have been changed and tweaked, making the experience even more epic.

How the story unfolds, is really nice. You get a much deeper story experience than in any other previous GOW game. The acting the motion capture is top-notch!!!! I wont spoil the story for you so I will stop right there.

The now features a new game plus option, which is really nice, because it adds even more replayability than before.

If this game only had the single player portion it would be still the best GOW game out there, with a SP longer than GOW3!! BUT there is more in the package.

The multiplayer is really cool, I have not played much yet, because I also have some responsibilities, but so far it is really entertaining. I picked up ARES as the olympian I would fight for, so that I can also be some sort of Kratos in the MP lol XD. Each Olympian gives to his champions different abilities, so it is really cool to play against and with other people that have different kind of sets of moves, and look in awe their great attacks even if they are killing you. The game is well balanced, and even though it is based on MP modes we have already played in other games, the fact that this is GOW, makes them really fun and visceral to play.

As you already noticed I am having an spectacular, and fun time playing this. If you are a GOW fan, dont let you to be convinced by reviewers who have not even bothered in exploring all the things the developers have added in this game. This game is quite amazing if play and explore it just like you did the previous GOW games or any other game. And if you are not a fan, and you just want to play a great action adventure game, if you play this game, and let it flow you will have an amazing experience with it.

For me, this is the best action-adventure/hack n slash game I have ever played. the gameplay, the music, the story, the graphics, are amazing, and together bring to life an outstanding package you can not miss.


FINAL SCORE: 10/10

Go buy it.....NAO!!!! XD

So recommend me your favourite Vita games!

Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Persona 4, Zero Escape, Unit 13, EDF, and Retro City Rampage.

And from what I've played so far, Senran Kagura is an absolute winner for those willing to import.

I've finished about half of Senran Kagura (done with Gessen and almost done with Hebijo, and 10 of the 20 individual modes), and yes it is a great game underneath the T&A. The story sections are surprisingly dark and bloody, like the part in Miyabi's past where she witnesses her mother's skull crushed and blown off her body by a demon. Yeah... It feels a little of an awkward contrast with the actual game sections because they aren't nearly as serious. They tell each other to die but they just knock them out and rip their clothes. I don't think you actually get to fight any of those crazy demons either. The individual character mode mini stories are also all just plain silly, although in a good way. As for actual gameplay it's fantastic.

By the way, if you want to unlock Homura's team without clearing the other 3 schools first, on the school selection screen hold L and R and input ↑←→↓↑→←↓↑→↓←↑↑←↓→↑. Courtesy of Famitsu.

Yeah. I'm pretty surprised, actually. I didn't expect much more than a cheap Dynasty Warriors knockoff with ridiculous boobies. But the fundamentals are really, really good.

Guys, I am thinking of making a Vita recommended games thread. I don't think we have one here already, and Smeags always makes such nice ones for Nintendo consoles and I like making lists, so I'd like to make a similar one for our beloved handheld. Who knows, might end up being a useful resource for some people too.

So recommend me your favourite Vita games! Was planning on using the following categories:

Action/Adventure

Fighting

Platforming

Puzzle/Rhythm

Racing

Role-Playing

Shooting

Sports

I was just going to pull all the 70+ games off metacritic to make the list, but I realised it's probably not fair since niche but decent stuff like Dynasty Warriors or Earth Defence Force would get left behind. So I wanted just to make the best list I could, and where better to ask than here?

Cheers.

Action/Adventure Soul Sacrifice, Wait for Tearaway, and i supousse You have played Gravity Rush RIGTH?!

Fighting: Blazblue Continum Shift Extend (until yesterday was 12.25$ :/ on the store), Dead or Alive + next week ^^, Mk is pretty good and UMvC3 too.. Avoid SF x TKN and I'm not sure about Realuity Fighters...

Platforming: Dokuro, tales from space a Mutant blob, little Big Planet, rayman origins.

Puzzle/Rhythm: Sound Shapes, hatsune miku project Diva, Lumines, Dokuro (only puzzle+Platform).

Racing: Need for Speed, Ridge racer is decent but.. that DLC system is really crappy.. so let's wait offers on the game and DLC...

Role-Playing: only Disgaea 3 relaased until now, but later will come Y's Celceta Sea of Trees, Valhalla Knigths, Atelier totori+ and probably more.. Ragnarok oddissey and Persona 4 seems to be must play...

Shooting: unit13 until Killzone Mercenary Release, but if you like arcade shooters SINE MORA is a MUST! Really awesome game, on gameplay, graphics, music, and Story! FOR ONLY 9.99$ Oddworld Stranger is another option!

Sports: MLB the Show, MAdden  and Fifa are the only one released... there's Hot Shot Golf, that's pretty funny but is more arcade... from the fisrt Tree, MLB the Show is the better if You like baseball...

It actually reminds me a bit of a fighting game like BlazBlue, although not nearly as technical. It has perfect guard/countering, strong attacks for guard break, health sacrifice for limit break to counter combo stunlocks, special attack gauge, lots of varied combos especially if you consider the 3 forms each character has. The aerial combat is not bad either, although not as deep as in a Tales game.

Finally picked up dj max technicka tune, lots of fun even if I am bad at it.



Has anyone played Prince of Persia: Rival swords on psp? I haven't played PoP3 yet and this might be the time to play the game and get in touch with my Vita :)

in other words, is the game playable with no second analoge to control the camera? How I wish someone would reply with "all psp games got patched to take advantage of the vita's second analog, where do you live? under a rock?"



Anyone familiar with the Hyperdimension Neptune series on PS3?

Apparently there's a new game coming to Vita in June.

『神次元アイドル ネプテューヌPP』 PSV 6/20 6279円 DL版5300円 限定版8379円
Kami Jigen Idol Neptune PP

Compile Heart also seems pleased with their 50k+ Monster Monpiece sales.
