Reposting this from the last thread since I only got it in after the bump limit, thank you to the anons who gave your opinions and information already

I need some recommendations; I've gotten most of the games that are basically "must-have" that I think I would like for the Vita, including all Vanillaware games.

Here's some that I think might appeal to me; I prefer shit like RPGs with a pretty heavy focus on story but I'm open to most genres as long as they're fun, what are anons' opinions on:

>Fate/Extella

I have no experience with fate outside of Fate/zero and being aware of a few characters

>Valkyrie Drive

unsure about this one, it just looks like a version of Senrans+Yuri+weapon transformation but I don't know anything about it besides what I saw in a trailer

From what an anon said its literally just senrans with weapon girls

Is the story any good? Are the characters fun?

>Atelier Shallie Plus

no experience with the franchise whatsoever, the cover just looked like it'd be kinda appealing I guess, apparently its just cute girls being cute in a turn-based RPG. I really don't know if I'll like this one even though cute girls are very quickly growing on me

>Demon Gaze 1/2

Rarely play dungeon crawlers and I strongly prefer when they have actual, preferably meaty stories and good characters

>Xblaze Code/Lost

Its apparently a VN.

Any good?

>Blazblue games

I heard they have good story modes for fightans (or at least one of the games did) but I wouldn't know

>Aegis of Earth/Freedom Wars

Haven't looked into these games yet outside of their game covers, they seem kinda… unusual?

>Arcana Heart 3

Its apparently a fightan; seems interesting enough especially from the way one anon made it sound like in last thread, any criticism to lay on it?

>MeiQ

See Demon Gaze but I'm a bit more interested in this one

>Grand Kingdom

Its an SRPG so I'm automatically interested, but is it any good?

>Tales of Hearts R

Interested in the Tales of series but never played any of them, this one any good and on okay place to start?

>trillion: God of destruction

most idea factory games interest me, this one seems kinda interesting but I heard its strongly suggested to let characters die in this game to get all the endings or something, which is kinda weird sounding.

>Dungeon Travelers 2

See Demon Gaze, but I'm more interested in this one

(judging from what was said last thread I'll probably be getting it)

>Mary Skelter

I've heard good things about this one, is it a must-have for the system?

I don't have it yet.

>Yomawari

I'm probably going to get this one no matter what, I just more had a question about NISA

I heard NISA Europe (Yes they're actually called this) doesn't poz the games nearly as bad as NISA does. Is this true and is it worth importing an EU copy? I'll obviously get a pre-owned copy so no money goes towards NISA of course, I just really want a physical copy of this game.

>>14951729

>Interested in the Tales of series but never played any of them, this one any good and on okay place to start?

No. It's pretty lousy even for a tales game, and the botched translation doesn't help.

>Dungeon Travelers 2

Most waifu bait is shit, but this game is pretty fucking good.

>Aegis of Earth

If you like tower defense it's pretty good.

>Demon Gaze

I haven't play those in particular, but the developer has a habit of making very samey, very lazy Dungeon Crawlers like Operation tokyo abyss, ray gigant or stranger of sword city. Might be good

>trillion: God of destruction

I'm not going to spoil how to get the true end completely, but it will involve letting some of the girls die. It's a mixture of princess maker and a grid-based RPG. If my save didn't corrupt when I was at the very end I'd play it again.

>Mary Skelter

I'm going to be honest and say the art interested me first but it is actually not a bad dungeon crawler (and if you own a vita you will eventually play a ton of them on this).

I was thinking about getting a Vita for Mortal Kombat 9 (MKX is shit and im not bothering with the ios port). Is it worth it or should I just wait until a compatible emulator is out for android phones? Last time I check on any sort of PS Vita emulators out there, there was one that was compatible only for the PC that could run home brews like Quake 1.

Couldn't that also mean that the actually worthwhile games are the ones that don't sit on the shelves too long after they get them in? Though, where I live, on the rare occasion I'm at Gamestop, they've actually had a half decent selection of Vita games, at least as of the last time I went into one. Then again, I've heard some other anons in these threads that live out here say this state is strangely Vita friendly anyhow, as far as game selection goes.

There was new copies of Mary Skelters everywhere at almost every gamestop I checked for the past few weeks and now they're cleaned out at all of them so that lends your theory some weight.

It helps to check frequently, I conveniently have one right across from my workplace and others within 3 miles of the place, so I spend my hour-long lunch break checking them out.

Just keep in mind that its worth checking their official sites and whatnot to make sure you're getting the best price for them, for example I managed to find a copy of Celceta with original case at a gamestop and I almost bought it, but then I realized I could get a new copy directly from Xseed (and actually support them instead of Gamestop) for the same price

One of my personal favorites on the vita. The class mechanics, complex multilayered maps and an endgame that might break you before you even reach the bosses. Considering it's an drpg from Sting a studio that mainly makes srpgs they did a damn good job.

If you have played other games by them for example Gungnir or Yggdra Union I'm sure you could enjoy this as well.

>Grand Kingdom

I don't understand the hype behind this game and my main genre is srpg. Every battle felt the same and there wasn't that much customization. The difficulty was also very low.

This just makes me believe more and more that the Vita wasn't extraordinarily more secure compared to other consoles though what wouldn't look like a fortress compared to the 3DS and it was more because there wasn't much "glory" for the scene queens to get from it.

The people playing on Vita actually bought and played games rather than jerking off about being able to play DOOM on another portable device. It's for homebrew guise, not piracy, I swear

I guess the next question after reading that PS Vita buyer's guide is, Is it worth it to get a unhacked Vita if Im ever going to play like two or three games on it (MK9 is really all that I wanted it for, but Killzone Mercenary looked pretty neat). Or should I get an older PS Vita, hack it and get a smaller GB memory card so I don't have to worry about carrying games around with me?

Yeah you should probably just find a CFW moddable one, Mortal Kombat 9 isn't particularly expensive but for some reason Killzone Mercenary is one of the rarer games, and memory cards are a bitch to get in any decent capacity..


60dd38 No.14987311

>>14985711

If you're going to buy games, buy physical, if you're going to go full/mostly digital avoid supporting Sony and hack an 3g Vita. That way you can replace the 3G module with an SD card and not have to deal with Sony memory cards outside of a 4GB for installing/updating the JB itself while still being able to use your gamecard slot for the odd physical release.

Sony deserves no money for the shit support they've given the Vita and 9/10 you can support the developer in another way that excludes Sony, either through a PC release of the same title, buying a physical game from the dev's online store as far as I know Sony gets less of a cut from physical sales so this is a better option or buying another one of their releases.

>>14987281

It's probably rarer because it was back when Sony actually tried to pretend they supported the Vita. Most of the people who bought it on launch probably have their copies forgotten collecting dust somewhere.

Most of the used Vita games at Gamestops and the like near me tend to be the weeb releases that people didn't realize were what they actually were.

>>14951729

>Valkyrie Drive

Most people can't stand it, but I liked it. It's similar to Senran, but with a focus on dodging attacks rather than parrying, a faster pace overall, and much larger areas. Like Senran, the story starts off light hearted and lewd, but gets darker as it goes on. Since the cast is so much smaller than Senran's, each girl gets plenty of development.

>Freedom Wars

This could have been the best hunting game I ever played if it hadn't been for a slew of terrible, terrible design decisions. The combat has a proper weight to it, the guns aren't just an afterthought to the melee, and the thorn is a well thought out gameplay mechanic that lets you do a ton of cool shit like attach to a target's limbs so you can sever them. The problems start to show themselves when you try to make and upgrade weapons. There are more layers of RNG horse shit involved in crafting in Freedom Wars than in your average pay to win MMO, it takes half an hour of real time to do it, and the game autosaves every time you do it so that you're fucked out of your rare materials whether you get a good weapon or a piece of shit. As much as I enjoyed the gameplay, the RNG of the crafting just killed the game for me. It's really that bad.

I did a NG in hard mode with that game and I have found out how terrible the balance is by doing so. I had to grind a ton in the first dungeon as some trash could just one shot you due to the stat differences. Element charts aren't intuitive and the girls become useless quickly throughout the game since you can break the game with the mechs by giving them cheese tactics. Managed to complete the story, although it left a terrible taste in my mouth with how generic and shallow it was.

Best part of the game was the artwork. Artist's Twitter can be found here https://twitter.com/aws_ryoji and pixiv Ryoji https://www.pixiv.me/ryoji2314

That game's hard mode, like most higher tier difficulties in newer games, is literally just them multiplying the stats/success rate of the enemies in normal mode and calling it a day.

It's a completely retarded way to do higher difficulties because it leads to shit like bosses with 85%+ chance of instant kill skills or hitting for higher than a character can mitigate but bringing up the retardation just leads to retards trying to deflect it with

I blame places like wololo and other places like that, they put out shitty articles that build up hype and praise for the guys that work on the Vita (and recently, the PS4). Though with that said what the TheFlow did was kind of strange. There was no reason to announce the exploit when he knew he wouldn't be able to work on it and then say, "wait until the end of the year" unless he just wanted to garner attention.

>There was no reason to announce the exploit when he knew he wouldn't be able to work on it and then say, "wait until the end of the year" unless he just wanted to garner attention.

This is true but I think part of it was to excite people about seeing an exploit for games coming out this year rather than some undefinable EoL claim. even more undefinable with Sony who literally released a system update for the PS3 at the end of last year

>I blame places like wololo and other places like that,

wololo is literal cancer. The owner of the site just publishes shit from twitter and/or reddit, to the point that they linked to a reddit post that was a release from the forums on their OWN site's forums.

The most "active" article "writer" uses the site as his/her personal soapbox, writing game reviews and net neutrality bullshit that nobody wants.

>they put out shitty articles that build up hype and praise for the guys that work on the Vita

Honestly I think it's just because the PS2/GC was the last console generation before gaming and internet whoring got popular with faggots.

The hypetrain retards and attention whores didn't really have a concentrated location to get attention from until reddit type bullshit got popular yes forums and imageboards were a thing and had the same faggotry but they were far less mainstream

What we're seeing now is just attention whores ranking which consoles will get them the most attention and focusing on releasing their balldrop.js garbage there.

That's why the PS3 scene seemed so much bigger than the Wii and the XBox 360.

It's why the 3DS scene had such massive problems it's entire lifespan, it's why the Vita scene largely didn't exist and is now composed entirely of drama whores and 3DS rejects, and it's why the Switch scene is massive cancer out of the gate and moving to seekrit club garbage.

I'm glad it's so much easier to ignore this shit on PC, I don't think I'd be able to play video games at all anymore if I had to deal with some faggot inserting retarded comments into their cracks like

It's just another way for identity politics to go where it does not and should not need to be while rewarding e-celeb retardation and creating figureheads. Figureheads that are frequently not actually knowledgeable experts in the fields they "represent" but are somehow seen as authoritative due to their followers.

It attracts people who will vigorously defend and even endorse that sort of garbage and will increase their numbers before taking over entirely. Degradation of a Fanbase/Hobby

I'm not interested in having to deal with another interest in my life being taken over by people who are only there to cause problems and then cry about how "persecuted" and "unwelcome" they feel in yet another hobby that they are forcing themselves and their bullshit into.

Enso = modified boot that launches henkaku automatically. Without Enso you would have to

a) Launch henkaku manually after every reboot

b) Use some workarounds for Kernel plugins like SD2Vita. Example: You would have to boot, run henkaku, go to vitashell and then mount the SD card before it became usable as opposed to shit just working after your boot the console.

They're not that jewish, but i can understand the whole concept of "1.5-5k print runs and no reprints" can really fucking piss people off. Especially when you factor in the scalpers who do everything possible to try and get around the 1 or 2 game per person limit they have set up.


60dd38 No.15008281

>>15008203

If they were really interested in making sure everybody who wanted a copy of a game got one they would go back to their previous model where there was no limited amount now that they have visibility.

As it is now they only really give a hard cap on pre-release sales when they could easily still order more because it ensures they hit those sales numbers due to scalpers wanting to buy as many copies as they can to flip.

That's why they're jewish.

Isn't their whole point to provide a (limited) physical release to games that only were digital and is their name not Limited Run games?

Not defending them, I know next to nothing about them but blaming them for what scalpers to do limited runs of products seems kinda sketchy since that could really apply to any limited/collector edition versions of products, which are never unlimited.

I assume LRG makes money by putting out a limited amount and maybe increasing the amount by increments if the initial amount sells out because having a set quantity as opposed to making shit on demand of a product makes materials and other shit like manufacturing and assembly very clear cut and open to bulk discounts and whatnot.

Did their old model really allow for unlimited production and/or on-demand production?


60dd38 No.15008755

>>15008484

>Isn't their whole point to provide a (limited) physical release to games that only were digital and is their name not Limited Run games?

Limited in that the print is only done once.

>blaming them for what scalpers to do limited runs of products seems kinda sketchy since that could really apply to any limited/collector edition versions of products, which are never unlimited.

Agreed but their current model seems to reward scalpers far more than regular production models. Most people who wanted a collectors copy of P5 before it released got one, for example.

>Did their old model really allow for unlimited production and/or on-demand production?

It wasn't on-demand or "unlimited" it was more that they would announce a print run and would accept new orders up until they sent the order off to print.

As you might imagine, either due to them being new or people seeing the games as not "rare" enough to collect due to a near limitless supply on pre-orders they were only getting 1-2k orders on the high end.

They then introduced the caps, presumably because a hard one thousand is cheaper than one thousand twenty one and it set obvious sales goals.

What ended up happening though is that the scalpers moved in and bought up a fuck load of the first few batches of games they sold through that system.

That is why the newer prints have extreme copy limits, waiting lines, and the like.

It doesn't actually solve the issue of "not everybody that actually wants a copy to own can have one" while still rewarding scalpers that can work around that system.

yo fags are there any US retailers worth a damn when it comes to Vita games aside from Fucking Gamestop?


60dd38 No.15016672

>>15016624

When you say retailers do you mean physical stores?

If so, probably not any chains. You'll need to venture into the independent stores that stock shit other than PS4/XBone stuff.

If you're ok with online there's loads and most of them deliver almost anywhere.


053620 No.15016684

I was referring to physical stores yeah; even if its just for shit like ordering something online and getting it for store pickup

Online is acceptable if the prices and inventory are good

The only online ones I really know are Lukiegames and Play-asia, and of course the obvious ones like Ebay, newegg, Amazon and its ilk and whatnot

Anybody know how to get Muv Luv Collection? For some reason NoPayStation doesn't have it and so it doesn't pop up on pkgj.


2ef3ac No.15019148

>>15018999

>For some reason

Because games have to be added to NPS by hand. Someone has to buy them first. And it doesn't matter right now anyway because you wouldn't be able to play it.

>>15019148

It's possible, though unlikely, that he was looking for the JP versions of Muv Luv/Alternative. I say unlikely because, as far as I'm aware, the Muv Luv "Collection" was the name given to the localized games together

NPS is extremely lacking when it comes to JP exclusive games and JP games that have been localized. Because, as much as "moral" pirates like to claim, most people don't care about "backups" from a preservation standpoint and just want their free games.

Even if that's true, there are still almost always a contingent of people who do want to archive everything in every community.

I imagine that its more that Japanese games are harder and more expensive to get a hold of and that someone has to pay for them

Don't you also need a new JP PSN account for nippon games and isn't it still difficult and a pain to get them?

Plus I think a lot of importing shops for nippon copies of games are sold out of a lot of games or charge up the ass for their games

Yes, there is. They also don't tend to be the people whining about games not being dumped a few days after release.

I would go further and even say that NPS is solely for piracy seeing as it's still downloading from the PSN. Where's the archive there?

It's not NPS, it's the people saving the thousands of pkg files to external drives regardless of being able to read/play it.

>I imagine that its more that Japanese games are harder and more expensive to get a hold of and that someone has to pay for them

>Don't you also need a new JP PSN account for nippon games and isn't it still difficult and a pain to get them?

More expensive from a logistical standpoint yes, not so much in cost most of the time

You can make a JP PSN, the problem is Sony restricts payment methods by region so you'd have to buy JP PSN cards to stock the account and all that.

>Plus I think a lot of importing shops for nippon copies of games are sold out of a lot of games or charge up the ass for their games

I'm at least 85% positive that while you can dump cart games you can't get the zrif/pkg link from them needed to add them to NPS.

>NPS is extremely lacking when it comes to JP exclusive games

While I have not delved in there too deep I had no trouble finding the few games that I was interested in. Unless it's some really niche stuff, but I have to say I was positively surprised at the JP game selection on there.

>moral pirates

I don't claim anything. I pirate because it's free.

>>15019968

>Don't you also need a new JP PSN account for nippon games

Not if you're running henkaku. I don't even have an account on the Vita and I can run EU/NA/JP games with no issues at all.

>I'm at least 85% positive that while you can dump cart games you can't get the zrif/pkg link from them needed to add them to NPS

Yep, NPS only works with digital downloads, so if the game is only available in physical, it won't be on NPS.

Which Vanillaware game is the best to begin with?

Assuming they're all fine, which is the shortest? Going on a plane ride then vacationing for a few days, I'll only have time to play at night most likely but it'd be nice to finish or get close to finishing a game

on a lark, went to non-national game chain in my local to see if they had anything to offer that Gamestop didn't. Tons of Madden coasters, games priced way higher than used copies should go for, and not a Vita title in the mix. Other handheld pickings were pretty casual, too. I died inside when I saw they had a PSP Ys title going for $50. Couldn't fathom who would be that dumb to try that price point.

Almost sounds like Turbografx prices, almost was it an LE or sealed? Retards pay good money for that.

You don't need to mess with it all that much after you install the plugin for it and copy over your memory card shit if you wanted to keep that

It's not a very involved installation either unless you're functionally retarded

If you mean specific shit like how it works, it's literally an SD card adapter that goes into the gamecart slot.

Still waiting for my copy of Bulletgirls 2 to arrive, I was supposed to be delivered yesterday. Goddamned air mail, I should've just paid the extra shekels to have it delivered with tracking.

>>14942490

> BulletGirls Phantasia

AYYYY MY GIRL IS IN, FUCKIN SOLD NOW

>>14951729

> I have no experience with fate outside of Fate/zero and being aware of a few characters

that's fine, I didn't either. Fate/Extella is pretty all-right. If you ever played a musou game before, you already know what you're getting into.

> Valkyrie Drive

it's sorta hit and miss. The aerial combat is much more well done than in the Senran Kagura Versus games, but the ground combat isn't quite as good. There's plenty of outfits, special underwear designs for rarer panties, and agoodmassaging mini-game in the dressing room. The story isn't BAD, but it isn't really all that compelling either. The girls don't quite have the same charm as the individual Senrans do, for the most part.

> Atelier Shallie

woah hold up amigo, that's the final game in the Dusk trilogy. If you wanna play the Dusk games, you should start with Ayesha, then Escha and Logy next, THEN Shallie.

As for Atelier games in general, they're heavily based around the idea of crafting items for battle via alchemy, the ingredients for which you usually find in battle dropped from enemies, picked up in the field, or bought from stores. The battle system otherwise is fairly standard, the special hyper cinematic attacks are pretty damn powerful though, and there's also a combo/link system of some sort too. it's been a good while so my memory's a bit fuzzy on the details but the stories and characters are great, character interactions are usually quite humorous and there's a myriad of bonus/extra scenes to view that aren't tied to the main story.

> BlazBlue fightan

they're all-right. The story is full of super fucking convoluted magic-science techno-babble space-time shit (personally, I enjoy that aspect). As a fightan, it's pretty decent. Just don't get lazy with Noel, her D-combos will make you a fuckin casual pretty quick. Also Chronophantasma Extend 's story mode is about 95% Visual Novel with VERY few fights to break it up unlike in Calamity Trigger and Continuum Shift Extend. No clue about Central Fiction though.

> MeiQ

A game with cute soft girls designed by Nomura Ryoji and a soundtrack composed by Tenpei Sato. It offers a really neat Mecha-Guardian thing that you can customize, but unforunately the game is either painfully easy or bust-your-balls-and-burn-your-corpse hard. There's no in-between. It's standard DRPG fare otherwise though.

MeiQ is the second game of the Makai Ichiban Kan project by Compile Heart which saw the inclusion of some staffers from Disgaea (see Tenpei Sato) composing for both the games.

> Trillion

The first game of the Makai Ichiban Kan project, it's a weird fusion of SRPG, Mystery-Dungeon, and a Raising Sim. I clocked 87 into this game 100%-ing it. The music, like in MeiQ, was done by Tenpei Sato, with the characters designed by Kei Nanameda and it was directed by the Disgaea 4 director Masahiro Yamamoto. I actually wouldn't suggest the Vita version because the last time I played, my NG+ runs were plagued with bugs to hell and back, usually just crashing the game half of the time I would go to fight Trillion. I nabbed it on PC where the bugs were non-existent and played it all to completion. If you played any of the Disgaea games, you'll feel oddly at-home I imagine, especially when you consider the expanded universe of the NIS games like Disgaea, Phantom Brave, Makai Kingdom, La Pucelle, etc and how they're all interconnect-yet-separate universes due to interdimensional traveling and it's mentioned how in Trillion there are ALSO multiple Netherworlds, not just the one you're in, as Trillion travels from dimension-to-dimension, consuming each dimension's Heaven, Earth, and Netherworld. I loved this game to pieces, but it's grindy if you want all the endings, it's RNG heavy and you will need to savescum unless you want the RNG to ass-fuck you with no lube.

The rest of these I either haven't played at all or just barely played to not really be able to have an opinion on.

Also check out Gravity Rush, Killzone Mercenary, and Dragon Quest Builders for your Non-RPG needs.

I guess my main question is whether or not you can still get on PSN while using it. I know some homebrew things, not necessarily Vita stuff, make going online a liability.


60dd38 No.15026207

>>15026089

It functions exactly like a normal memory card.

If you're on 3.60 you can't access the PSN.

If you're on 3.65 enso you can access the PSN just fine with the regular caveats related to JB consoles.

Don't do blatantly stupid shit, don't play MP, don't spam trophy unlocks, etc and you'll be fine.

So I updated Dragon's Crown (physical cart) and when I try to launch it I get a C1 6703-6 error which, judging from a search seems to imply I need to update to a higher FW than 3.60 am I fucked?

I wanted to avoid having to update my FW for the max amount of compatibility with plugins and homebrew applications so I can play shit like fanslations like the nep ones without issue

You may be able to uninstall the update from pkgj

>I wanted to avoid having to update my FW for the max amount of compatibility with plugins and homebrew applications so I can play shit like fanslations like the nep ones without issue

If fan translations are your main reason for sticking with 3.60 you'll be pleased to learn that repatch works on 3.65 and should work with translations.

Is PKGJ possible to install on 3.60 Vitas? I've only seen people with 3.65 henkaku refer to PKGJ for anything

If they don't already most of the time it's possible to port translations over. You'll have to choose which is more difficult for you or buy a second Vita.

>Is PKGJ possible to install on 3.60 Vitas?

I'm not sure but it should work fine.

Cartridges don't have rewritable storage space as far as I know so there would be no way to save an update to the cart.

No idea where I got the idea that Bullet Girls Phantasia was going to be on Switch but I probably won't want to update to 3.67 to play that if I can only get it for Vita. We'll see. I'm still playing 2 sporadically right now.

>>15031038

Some do actually. I think the only one I've seen with this is Touch My Katamari where it saves to there instead of the system storage. Unsure whether any games use it for patches but it's claimed here. Writable parts of the game card mount to grw0:

Good to know and I'm glad I've never encountered one in the wild.

I wonder why it wasn't used much though, was it prohibitively expensive to produce?

You could probably shutdown a decent chunk of piracy and dumping tools by rewriting something small to a cart on boot that doesn't allow it to run on OFW lower than the last known update. along with a way for the game to discover newer FW updates regularly
