    Trials HD relies on very deft manipulation of the triggers and left stick on the 360. It'd be hard enough on a Dualshock, and next to impossible on the Vita I'd have thought.

    I wonder if I'm missing the point with Hotline Miami. It looks like any number of shit overhead games from the late Spectrum / early Amiga years.

    What's all the fuss about?

    // didn't "get" Halo either, even after 3 attempts at playing it.
    Funnily enough I said similar to a friend at work. Why are we getting excited about things we were playing 20 years ago? I want nice games with nice graphics for my nice machine that can handle it!

    When I first saw it I thought it was like some EG retrospecitve thing!

    I think it could definitely be done on the Dualshock, albeit less comfortably than the 360. It's possible to assign throttle to an analogue stick for Vita but probably not the best idea.

    Sidenote: I play Motorstorm RC with throttle on the left stick and steering on the right (like a radio control). Also, if you ever played the brilliant MotoGP '07 (or '06) from Climax then, like me, you might have played with throttle on the right stick.

    @Help_me Not played Hotline yet but I think it distinguishes itself by being extremely stylish and ultra-violent. Also, I presume it runs a lot smoother and with tighter controls than the equivalent jerk fests that we experienced on the NES. In any event, there's nothing to say we can't still enjoy that type of game if it's done well.

    @crispyduckman What about the delicate shifting of the rider's weight with the left stick? Would be very hard on the Vita's little nubbin.

    Though it was originally a PC game wasn't it, so digital (rather than analogue) control of the rider's weight is presumably possible.

    Hotline Miami, on the other hand, looks ideal for the Vita! :)

    @monkman76 Yeah, I just meant vaguely "in theory". Although, I don't think the Vita's analogue sticks are that bad. Perhaps that's down to my delicate musician's hands.

    Yeah, I suppose Trials 2 was on the PC and they were Flash games before that. Also, the genre generally started way before mainstream analogue controls (not that you'd guess judging from the comments on literally any page relating to Urban Trial).

    Urban Trial is almost identical to Trials on the Xbox. I have both versions on that console so I'm enjoying the chance to play on the Vita.

    I think there are quite a lot of better MH clones due later in the year. So a wise man would wait. (I am also tempted to get it).

    @Gregolution - depends how much you enjoyed the demo, I guess...?

    I'm undecided too. I quite liked the demo, but I get the feeling it'll be a little shallow after a while.

    Did anyone read Destructoid's review? It seemed like there were a fair few negatives that were just dismissed, and then Sterling plopped a nine on the end. I think the things he outlined would bother me more than they apparently bothered him.

    I'm still thinking of grabbing it though, even though my copy of P4G turned up today

    FFXIV: ARR - Khroma Midgard, Odin.

    Yeah got my persona today too. I'm going to wait on ragnarok until I've finished this bottle of wine and then decide!

    I wish there was bigger memory cards for the Vita. Keep having to delete games I haven't played much of to install newer shiny ones, but that means I'll probably forget about the ones I've deleted :(

    I will almost certainly prefer God Eater 2 but that is a while away. Besides, I've been waiting patiently for Ragnarok since I played the demo (before the US localisation was announced) so I was always going to get it. ;) It will have to compete with Demon Gaze for my attention though!

    Urban Trials or whatever it's called is quite good fun but I think I will tire of it quickly and at 14 quid it will have to hold off.

    Especially as just got Everybody's Golf, PS All Stars and Lumines today for 20!

    Urban trials seems fine to me. Trials is a massive rip off of things like Wheelie on the spectrum Anyway. This isn't quite as refined but it's good nonetheless.

    FCUTA!

    In a way I wish Sony would do a 'Nintendo' and price cut the Vita, and just give all us early adopters a few months free PS+ sub or something. A man can dream, I guess.

    Didn't you just post that on the Sony live feed comments?

    Quite like the demo for that Trials game, but then i never played the XBOX one.

    Not gonna bother just yet though.

    Ahem. Well it's not really a nubbin, but it's pretty stumpy for an analogue stick :-P
