    I wish vita would get more actual retail games instead of just cheap download titles and psp games most of the time. And it seems like they are giving us a new fighting game on vita practically every month. Lets get some love for other genres!

    makes me sad, it seems month after month the EU PS+ crushes the NA list. They get 3 ps3 game and 2 vita game, not to mention they got what looks like unit 13 and cathrine (they are being removed for the next batch) It seems like NA gets the shaft with lots of minis and crap.

    If this keeps up im making a damn EU + account from now on -_-;

    Yeah, we got both of those a while back. I think this month for us was Mafia II, Need For Speed: Most Wanted and Spec Ops: The Line for PS3, Lego: Lord of the Rings and When Vikings Attack for Vita. I kind of want Bit.Trip Runner 2 though, but whatever. NFS is fun too :3

    I wouldn't mind this so much except the Zen Pinball stuff is basically DLC for a free game and we just got Machinarium on the PS3 a couple months ago. Also, this is arguably the first time since Vita games were added that we've gone two months without a full Vita game - Dokuro had a physical release, but only in Japan; it's always been a PSN title with a PSN price over here. We're also, unless I'm counting wrong, at 7 retail Vita games since November, while Europe is at 10.

    On the other hand, I've been wanting to play Hitman: Absolution and I can't argue with any of the BIT.TRIP games.

    You know you can trick your system into giving you a store from any PAL region, all get the EU games, and then buy PS+ through that.

    Vita needs many things...

    For me, it needs 1-2 AAA RPGS designed for it from the ground up, 1-2 strategy/tactics games in the style of Advance Wars/Fire Emblem(Disgaea doesn't count because it sucks). They need proper sports titles for every major sport. They need a Hot Shots Tennis sequel (my favourite time waster on PSP). They need GT as lokomelo said, as well as quality NFS and Codemasters titles. They need a new Tekken game... Some good puzzlers... And a couple of AAA story driven action games...

    if it had its own Monster Hunter and a really good FPS(specifically great MP), those 2 games alone would make the thing sell.

    I love my vita, it's a great system (hardware wise) and I'm having a hard time convincing myself it's going somewhere and then not selling it.

    So we get Hitman: Obsoletion, fucking pinball, Shit.Tripping, Whackinarium, and Dankstalkers Chronic. Wow, awesome selection.

    (Poster's Note: I have played none of the following games, so they may not be obsolete, shit, whack, or dank, respectively. Fuck pinball, though.)

    Runner 2 is amazing, and Hitman has my interest.

    But fuck, I wish they would give us Catherine.

    Haven't played it in weeks. I awoke the dragon thing, then I stopped. Too lazy to go back to it.
