So, after buying Borderlands 2 Vita and enjoying it alot, i figure that all those games i was afraid of buying because of performance arent that bad. So, i bought this on PSN sale.
Yes, it does run slower than the Xbox version, but the game is still there, its still gorgeous, it has the X360 gore and its still alot of fun to play. The slower fps actually makes it easier for those that cant keep up with the action on the other versions (it can get hectic at at times). I made the mistake of selling the 360 version, but i am happy with this new one.




Btw hope none of you guys bought into Destiny. Seems like that one was a doozie.

Destiny had average written all over it. I'm gonna borrow it off a friend when he's finished seems like a crossover between Halo and Borderlands from what I've seen.

I wasn't impressed with Destiny before the Alpha, after the Alpha, I was more interested in playing the Beta, after that, the only thing bad about final release was that I had to grind all my characters and play through the same levels again. Bungie's worst games were Marathon and Oni, everything they've made thereafter has always been top quality. I was never a big Halo fan, but I could never deny their level of craftsmanship in making video games. Nobody can deny this either, Destiny is a good game, but blaming it for being derivative of other games is silly, not many FPS titles are designed on the level that Bungie has kept up with since the Halo series.

Yeah, I got Destiny and completed the story missions. :p Mechanically this game is fantastic. The gunplay is intuitive and super satisfying and shoot-outs are frantic and FUN with lots of cool effects. Though, I never played Halo or Borderlands so maybe I was missing out. Even if the missions themselves are repetitive, the locations largely bland and boring(though the vistas are often gorgeous, espescially with all the impressive lighting effects) and the enemy variety limited; the gameplay itself is so immensely fun that it largely makes up for all its design failings.

They absolutely nailed the mechanics of the game and if they improve upon its design(espescially level/area lay-out and enemy variety) I have no doubt Destiny 2 will set a new benchmark for FPS games.

I finally got my copy of Disney infinity and one for my nephew and niece, it's actually really fun, been playing the spider-man playset, combat is obvious in how it plays, easy for children, but for a open world sandbox game, I'm really enjoying it.

I'm just glad I waited, I got both starter sets for 60 dollars each and with one free figure for each, so I got a bunch of stuff and saved money on it. Plus Target had buy 2 get one free sale, so I got some more figures for my nephew. My Niece just wants princessessssssssssss...........

$30. Heard lots of good things about this game, mostly that about the Nemesis system and that it's execution of Arkham-style combat. Just waiting on the massive 34GB download...jeez....
