Video game stories from other sites on the web. These links leave Siliconera.

  • RovCal

    which actually are the best games for vita.

    • Surgeon of Death

      RPG’s and handhelds just go so well together.

  • Go2hell66

    Gonna grab guilty gear for sure

    • TheExile285

      Think I’m getting GG too

  • TheExile285

    Not sure why Sony would do this a week after Dragons Crown came out.

    Might get GG. I already own 2/3 of that list lol.

    SS and Muramasa are steals for their sale prices considering how new they are.

    • D H

      Well, if Dragon’s Crown is doing good/okay in sales, it makes sense; a week later, people may be ready for something else, so let’s put games that have some kind of similarities with it on sale. Makes sense to me, anyway.

    • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

      Probably highlighting other games by Japanese devs in order to push sales and garner more interest in stuff like Dragon’s Crown.

  • dragoon_slayer12

    Anybody care to lend me $80????

    • Guest

      sure here’s an $80 Pizzahut giftcard

      : P

      • dragoon_slayer12

        I’d take that too. ^_^

        • Kevadu

          Live off of pizza, use food money for games.

  • Brandonmkii

    Hmm, might bite on Totori+, even though I’ve yet to play Rorona. And since that’s getting a remake, it might be a while since until I actually play it :p

    • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

      Totori+ is a pretty good game, and it’ll get you ready for Meruru+ next month, all you’d have to know is that A) Arland went from a monarchy to a republic sometime between Rorona and Totori and caused big upheavals, B) the guy who was king was a party member in Rorona and ran off, and C) Rorona is trying to find her alchemy teacher, Astrid. Those are really the only actual affecting things to backstory/motivations, and other than that it’s very easy to understand what’s going on without playing Rorona. Of course, these are also all things that are mentioned during the course of Totori itself– heck, the first one is said right at the start of the game.

      • Demeanor

        You… kinda went spoiler-happy there, are you sure it’s ok? XD what with New Atelier Rorona coming and all.

        • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

          Given how Totori/Totori+ pretty much says all of this during the course of things, I think it’s fine. It’s just more appreciated when you realize that things were different in Rorona (also there’s other things in Rorona I haven’t revealed, or really a majority of the characters).

  • JuhRo

    Might grab GG, Ragnarok, Muramasa, UMvC 3, New Little King’s story, and SMB.

    Anyone have any feedback on New Little King Story or Ragnarok? Both of those I’ve super on the fence about and leaning towards “no”.

    • TheExile285

      I personally think NLKS is pretty good. Little rough around the edges but I think you will enjoy it for the sale price. Just don’t expect a deep story. Its mostly gameplay.

      Skip RO. I personally didn’t think Vanilla RO was that good and its getting an updated Version called RO Ace with a lit more content and enhancements

      • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

        Yeah, this. Don’t get Ragnarok Odyssey. I like the game well enough but the updated game is gonna be out in America before the end of the year.

        • Guest

          Get both Ragnarok Odyssey and the expansion to help Xseed out

          • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

            Oh I’m totally getting the expansion. PS3 version!

      • JuhRo

        Not worth dropping 15$ so I can transfer over the character to Ace?

        • TheExile285

          Not sure but I think so.

          Check Siliconera’s Ragnarok Odysessy Ace tag and you should find the answer.

  • Saintdante

    Grabbing New Little Kings Story for sure since it’s digital only I don’t think it will hit that price again(besides ending up free on PS+ sometime).

  • SHSL Big Bro

    Tell me these are coming to europe cause I need to top up my wallet; NG Sigma 2 Plus is something I’ve wanted for a while, and the MGS collection seems neat too.

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      I’m interested on NGS2 + (I hope that Tecmo releases Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge Sigma Ultra Plus for the Vita as well) as well but I’ve heard the framerate is abysmal. I remember hearing that the last patch fixed it but I’m not 100% sure.

    • Demeanor

      I’m from EU but I’ve long since forsaken my EU identity on Vita for a US (and JP) one, I simply cannot suffer the gap between Western regions on a portable that is already struggling for games. :( Of course, this means I’m going almost exclusively for digital releases.

      • SHSL Big Bro

        I would have, too, but for some reason I can’t really my US PSN acc’s name so I can’t log in and use it on my vita; considering I had the free PSP games promotion on it, it’s a huge loss for me.

        • Demeanor

          You mean you can’t use it? Are you sure you’re inputting username and password correctly? I have no problems logging in on the Vita with the same US and JP account names I have registered on the PS3. Of course, I have a different memcard for each account, as imposed by Sony >_<

          • SHSL Big Bro

            no, it’s more like I can’t remember the email or the password, and I have no clue how to retrieve them

  • ivanchu77

    Lots of interesting offers here!! hopefully is coming to europe too

  • Herok♞

    I want to pick up all the stuff I want but don’t have already but then my wallet will take a big hit especially since Project Diva F and KH HD come out soon, that plus I don’t have any memory card space left so it might be a waste, especially since my backlog is already huge.

    • TheExile285

      You could store the games on your PS3 till you have space on your Vita. That is what I do with my backlog lol.

      • Herok♞

        after getting plus my PS3 is on its last legs space wise as well…

        • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

          Yeah, this is why I shoved a 1TB harddrive into my PS3.

  • leingod

    Nice discounts! But wasn’t Book of Memories made in the west by WayForward?

    • ZekeFreek

      Yes it was.

  • SerendipityX

    Something told me to wait on Totori+ so glad I did, and I guess I’ll grab DW Next too.

  • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

    I might try to pick up Soul Sacrifice and Little King’s Story. Hope people get Totori+, Meruru+ is next month!

    • TheExile285

      I’m looking forward to Meruru Plus. Already set aside $40 for it lol.

      • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

        Haha, I ordered a new memory card just for it. I don’t want to delete Totori+ off my first one yet since I might go back to it and attempt for True Ending.

  • Demeanor

    Mmm good lineup, but the only title that might interest me and I don’t have (on Vita) yet is DoA5… ugh, I’m swamped with my ps3 backlog and I still have to go through P4G, Muramasa and SS and more on my Vita… >_> Odyssey… is it worth it with Ace on the horizon?

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      No, it’s not. If you haven’t played RO yet wait for Odyssey which will have a far better longevity~.

    • TheExile285

      Nope. Ace has more content.

    • Eradev

      No, wait for Ace. Plis P4G, Muramasa and SS are better than RO IMO.

  • ZekeFreek

    I’d like to point out that Silent Hill: Book of Memories was developed by WayForward. Which is a wholly American developer.

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      But it still is a Japan-born IP, so…

      • ZekeFreek

        The title says “japanese developed” so it’s still wrong.

  • Sebastian Lothian

    I’m thinking about getting one of them, but I’m not entirely sure which one yet.

  • Phantasy Mage Lv.24

    Atelier Totori+, DoA5+ and New Little King’s Story will be mine :3

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    Everytime SH goes on sale I feel like a moron for having bought it in Europe (excluding myself from DLC content) for like 30 euros~.

  • Lightthrower

    Definitely a good time to buy a Vita.

    • tubers

      And PS+

  • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

    Man, not only did my birthday just past but I’m loving August every minute. Going to go broke~

    • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

      Soul Sacrifice, DOA5, UMVC3, and Atelier are my grab. >_< Now if only Sony had a sale with their memory cards lol

      • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

        Haha, I’ll say. I just ordered a 16GB card cause it was $45, down from $60. Seemed like a better choice in the meantime than dumping $90 on a second 32GB. ;;

      • TheExile285

        Yay! More SS & DOA players :D

        Totori Plus is also a good pick.

        • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

          Man, I’ve been meaning to play SS for a long time now, played and still do the demo. Since Dragon’s Crown came out, been playing that on my Vita. I’ve been on the go a lot and LOVE DOA5 and since Ultimate is coming out, might as well get this sweet steal. :)

          • TheExile285

            OK first off. Dragons Crown is AWESOME!!! I’m actually playing it right now.

            SS is fun and has tons of content. Surprised it on sale for so cheap so soon. There is a ton of Free DLC so make sure you download that too.

            DoA5+ is a lot of fun too. I’m a little bitter that Temco didn’t just wait so they could release DoA5U on PS3 and Vita but oh well. Still buying Ultimate for my PS3 at some point lol.

  • SlickRoach

    Ahh, after buying Dragon’s Crown and a slew of 3DS games this summer I finally get to start saving money again.

    Sony: “lol nope!”

    Well, I tried ;_;

  • ShadowDivz

    *Looks at calendar
    (ANIME CONVENTION STARTS THIS FRIDAY.BRING AS MUCH MONEY AS YOU CAN)

    *looks at screen.
    Atelier Totori Plus 27.99$
    Touch My Katamari 7.49$
    Dead or Alive 5 Plus 19.99$

    …God is clearly playing some sort of sick joke and im not amused.

    • TheExile285

      Get Totori Plus! The others can wait. (and you are better off getting DoA5U if you have a PS3 :/)

      • ShadowDivz

        True. But i have totori vanilla(pun not intended but seriously how sweet is that girl?)
        I was planning on buying a bigger MC and getting Meruru Plus(since i can’t find that in stores).

        • TheExile285

          Check Best Buy. They had 16GBs for $30 at one point.

  • eliel

    nice sale there’s already titles i want Soul Sacrifice, Muramasa Rebirth, New Little Kings Story, DOA 5+. was wondering if Ragnarok Odyssey ace coming to the US? if so i i’ll w8 for that ver.

    • http://linkapics.tumblr.com/ Linka

      Yeah, it got confirmed some months back that Ace is coming to America, both Vita and PS3 versions. You’re best off waiting.

  • AxionAzure

    And here I was celebrating that I had roughly $75 left this month. Well, not anymore I guess!

  • Zeonsilt

    Wow,awesome list for all Vita users.

  • Aristides

    Ouch! I paid $40 for little kings story X_X and well… I have not been able to play it. (Why me…)

  • http://geekorner.wordpress.com/ Geekorner

    Muramasa Rebirth so annoying, can’t buy in Europe at all, and now it’s even discounted on NA. Meh, and switching accounts on the Vita is such a pain :(
