    Aside of Sonic4Ep2 and maybe Future Soldier (if it really gets released) not that much interesting software.

    I want Sonic 4!
    Hopefully it gets released on the Vita (the smartphones will get it why not handhelds).

    I already knew that and still didn't like the name. Sure, I get the reasoning behind the word choice, but it still sounds awkward as the title to the game; it just doesn't quite fit.

    Hmm, I've been considering getting Mario Tennis Open, but I'm not a big fan of the Mario Tennis series. More of a fan of the baseball and golf games (For Mario sports games that is).

    Also interested in Sonic 4: Episode 2. The one video of White Park (I think that's what it's called) looks really nice, so I might get it for XBLA along with Minecraft.

    The Sonic 4 EPII probably doesn't work in Single-Core Android devices ;_;

    Will probably get Diablo III as soon as I can get it for a decent price (~35$).

    I can't let my Blizzard collection miss a title, anyway :P

    Release date: May 20th (North America), May 4th (Europe)
    Genre: Fighter
    My Hype Level: None own the console version

    A reboot of the classic series. A good fighting game now made portable with some exclusive costumes dlc in the future. It also has Kratos which is missing from the 360 version.

    Release date: 5/9 (North America, Europe, Japan, Australia)
    My Hype Level: Little
    GBAtemp Hype Level: Probably low since people might get the PC version instead
    Genre: Fantasy

    Your better off getting the PC version if you can but this is a nice substitution..



    Fable Heroes

    [​IMG]
    Platform: 360
    Developed by: Lionhead Studios

    GBAtemp Hype Level: I think it is low

    A adventure game with 4 player multiplayer or AI partners which also has more mini games sort of like Castle Crashers (if you count dodging obstacles, eating the food and volleyball as mini games in CC) and AI partners.



    Dragon Quest Monsters Terry no Wonderland 3D

    [​IMG]
    Platform: 3ds
    Developed and Published by: Square Enix

    Genre: Action/RPG
    My Hype Level: Hoping it is better then Dragon's Dogma
    GBAtemp Hype Level: Low since it isn't that big of a release and it is based on a book and has a tv show.

    Doesn't look like a good game but might be better then Dragon's Dogma.

    And this game looks horrible graphically for the Vita. I mean, Dead or Alive: Dimensions for the 3DS looks better than this in terms of texture quality and models.

    I mean, that looks like a PSP game. But I guess it's at least faithful gameplay-wise to the console versions.

    Oh god what is that shit. I mean I had no intention of buying it but yeah, that looks terrible.

    I'm guessing in motion a lot of the jaggies are gone and the OLED helps the bland colors but those textures are horrific. I mean c'mon, UMvC3 had a pretty awesome looking Vita port. This is fucking atrocious.

    Sorry I forgot to reply to your message but generally I want a paragraph and not one sentence impressions.

    Meh. Buncha crap.
    Suits me just fine, i'll be playing Tera all month since it's released on the 1st.

    Was gonna play Diablo 3 but the demo left me thoroughly unimpressed with basically every aspect of it, so i'll just be using the days I booked off...for Tera. Good times. Frees up my schedule at least.

    Probably get Mario Tennis if it's any good. If it's anything like the N64 Tennis game, i'll grab it immediately.

    I honestly did not know it looked that bad. Hopefully the final version will be better.
    Alright, I understand. I honestly did not care about any of the games besides Sniper Elite so I didn't have much to say.

    Oh, I forgot to say "for me". Couldn't really get into Diablo, though some of my friends love it!

    Huh?! This looks pretty bad, especially since the developers were one of the first to try out the Vita...

    I don't see how you got such ugly pictures as that is nowhere near how the game looks like.

    The game also comes with a balancing patch of some sort, not to mention the added yet uneeded minigames and the fact that it looks great on the vita means its not just another shitty port, its decent at worst.

    I saw the gameplay video and it looks a bit better in motion but there's nothing terribly close up to to make a good opinion. I mean regardless I'm not too interested in Mortal Kombat (although I've only played this one maybe once) but I might pick it up for the minigames when it's like $10.

    EDIT: And for the record, I'm guessing the screenies were taken with the screenshot function on the Vita so there's none of that touching up you see in other screenshots. The games look a lot worse when they're not on the OLED or touched up to get rid of jaggies. Here's an example:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    That's a screenie I took of Uncharted. Notice the horrific jaggies around Nate's head. I mean the game still looks great here but the jaggies aren't nearly as noticeable in motion and the colors are a lot more vibrant.

    It's called motion blur, Any non pc game pretty much looks like shit when you look up close due to tech limitations, unless you wanted your vita to be a portable Meteor

    Ive watched a bit of the future soldier gameplay from the uPlay demo. The learning curve is incredibly steep and doesn't seem all that fun.
