  • I'm behind you!!!
apparently Vita is getting tons of Indie games. Terraria has been confirmed and in the distant future MineCraft might just happen for Vita and PS3. since Notch(creator of MineCraft) stepped down as director and Jeb took over he said once the Microsoft exclusivity deal expires they will consider the Vita and/or PS3 as the next home for MineCraft. I myself believe it will happen because there's lots of money to be made there. If Terraria is coming which it is in Q2 of this year MineCraft is a must even if it is somewhere between the Pocket Edition and the PC Version.

as far as other releases go

Soul Sacrifice will be out on the 30th(fun as hell actually)

I hope I'm not disturbing the flow of things on this topic since what I'm saying does pertain to the topic.

For me, their europe launch of the original playstation was pretty solid with games like ridge racer, wipeOut, toshinden, rayman and the raiden project.

Since arcades were allowed for age 18+ people in Germany it was the first time i played a arcade shooter with graphics like that :-)


The ps2 launch had tekken tag tournament 2..that was everything needed at the time.

It was decent, but hardly a "strong" launch lineup. There was a few gems but nothing that really made it a MUST BUY gameplay-wise. My dad first bought it for me as a DVD player, and it stayed that way for awhile.

Maybe now I have an excuse to get a PS4 once it comes out.
Is finding MUGEN to be more enjoyable to play when you're not wearing clothes an underrated opinion?

Gotta love the Playstation console advertisement style. The baby one for the PS3 is still my favorite though.

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.
