i'd really have to see for myself what you're talking about, but i can see how the vita version would make more sense. takin my eyes off the tv to look at the wiiu doesn't sound very entertaining tho or do you not do that?

I think the Wii U version was designed so one seperate person used the gamepad to help the others across the level. On the PS3/360 this is done simple by holding a button wich makes it completely not intereactive. I imagine on the Vita version you can move on the screen instead of pressing just the button.

Actions include rotating the rooms, breaking ropes, moving platforms.
In all honesty i didnt like legends as much as i did Origins because its an experience tailored for multiplayer, while the original was pretty strong single player in wich others could join in.

Theres a demo on psn. Go play that before acting like snobs. The game was designed with touch control input in mind.
Actually I played the demo on a Wii U kiosk and decided that I would stick with the Rayman Legends that I already had on the PS3. Actually it's not called Rayman Legends, but it looks identical. It came out a couple of years ago. Origins? Oh well, different word similar meaning. And I generally HATE touch controls. I would rather push a button than take my hands off of the controller to move some silly thing around. So very gimmicky. Only children like gimmicks that that. I'll take the non-gimmicky version, thanks. And I think controlling a character onscreen is indeed interacting with the game world.

Its how they designed the game. I didnt say i like it. I said it felt bad to have it all automated when its supposed to be interactive.
The touching thing really isnt a problem on the Vita since your fingers are right next to the screen but i doubt you have one.

With that said i recommend you do stick to origins. It seems like a much better game to me.

Not the best fighter, but a good game, and it's cheaper than all the "Capcom rehashes" people have been complaining about.



I like One Piece, I also like Dynasty Warriors, this'll be a fun romp.



Could have spent less on it by buying the PSN version, I also would have had some points leftover to buy Shigechi(he's 300yen), Yoshikage Kira was free, but I needed to download a separate patch off the PSN store to use the DLC. The game itself looks like it's capable of running at 60fps and it kinda sucks that it doesn't have the same frame rate consistency as the Naruto games, still fun for anyone that's a Jojo fan.



I had the US version for a while, but I wasn't sure if I'd posted it yet.

I dont feel like bothering with pictures atm, but i got KOFXIII for the PS3 for 7.5 euros and regretted it cause it controls as bad as the 360 version and Way of the samurai 4 for 15 euros. Looks to be what i expected so i didnt get disappointed there.
These were on the PSN sales, so they are both digital.

If you're browsing Steam through a web browser, then it sounds like you need Enhanced Steam.

I took a WD over with me last year that had all of my music on it - and it died two days after I got there.

I bought another 1TB and I had problems with it within a month.

I'm sticking with Seagate from now on.
