I was under the impression Sony pulled the plug on the Vita years ago. I knew Japanese developers still made ports and the ocassionally RPG for the console, bit I thought Sony wasn't really supporting it anymore.

I'm pretty sure it's still a thing in Japan. What keeps it somewhat relevant overall is that it's connected to PSN and can sync up with your consoles.

it actually had a bigger install base in japan than the ps4 up until recently, a ton of japanese games kept it alive and well for the longest time.

Sony did pull the plug on the Vita in the US. Now it's Japan's turn.

Sure the vita did a lot of stupid things and it didn't have any particularly memorable exclusives but I was happy with my Vita. I need no exclusives when I can play Samurai Shodown 5 Special, Metal Slug 3, Mortal Kombat 9, The Last Blade 2, Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower, and my PSN Classics library conveniently on one nicely designed portable unit.

it's because they are already content with what they have done, mugen is not a paying job so as long as the charcter works for a creator that's enough; one's persons crouching while running is another person's change it to pots style.

I'd say the same but sadly Europe's PS Classics library sucked massive shite. I mean we didn't even get Mega Man X4!
There was a sig here. Its gone now (thanks photobucket ya fecks)

That’s really terrible news.  I was really looking forward to Wolf Among Us 2.

As much as I hate to say it though, it’s not entirely surprising.  They’ve been flooding the market with tons and tons of the exact same thing, and while there were a lot of great stories they told, people weren’t going to keep buying those forever.

"We previously reported that a skeleton crew will remain behind to complete work on The Walking Dead Final Season. That information was inaccurate. Sources who wish to remain anonymous explained that there is a skeleton crew at Telltale, but they will be working on the Minecraft Story Mode project for Netflix. In fact, The Walking Dead team was also laid off today and The Walking Dead Final Season will not be completed."

Ahh, this sucks.
PM me if you'd like a logo for your project.

Goddammit, that fucking sucks. :(

Ditto, I thought for sure they was doing well. That really fucking sucks.

Only TWD1 and Minecraft were the only games that made any money, all the rest bombed.

This. I kinda knew it for myself that with how much they was spamming games and such that unless they sold blockbusters, they was wasting more resources than getting. It sucks that they closed down but it feels like they should have known when to slow down and stop.

Rats, I was really hyped for The Wolf Among Us season 2.  I hope all the laid-off staff will be back on their feet soon.

I was a bit confused at some point between this and Ghost of Tsushima because it has the same realistic feel, the same colors, and the same fish-eye effect on the world wrapping over you.
Feels like a more ruthless Tenchu (which it started out as), but man, that Corrupted Monk boss fight looks hard as shit in that second phase. Unless it was just the guy trying to just die and show off the battle.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

That boss just became the Juggernaut. Wasn't expecting that 90's Capcom look.

It looks great. Looks and feels like Shinobi or Hagane with Metroidvania gameplay.
