Papers, Please Vita release rubber stamped

@geox30 Agreed. My Vita has gone everywhere with me for years. However, this summer it sadly got swapped for a Switch. I'm sure that's the same for most. They missed a trick with this game. If it had released 18 months ago it would have sold much better on Vita.

I love Ellie Gibson, this is the kind of article that makes Eurogamer superior to other sites. I miss her writing more regularly. Very surprised by some of the ignorant comments below. Nearly as bad as the Guardian comments sections!

Mafia 3 review

daft_punk_909

Traded it in today. Played about 4 hours. Tons of annoying bugs. The guns and stealth were terribly basic. Loved the story, although the prologue is about 2 hours of cutscenes with very basic missions in-between.

Even after the bugs are ironed out the actual game is just not very good.

On the plus side I bought from ShopTo for £36.99 and just traded it in at Game for £37. Picked up Tomb Raider on PS4.

I had an Atari STe. No one had an Amiga down my road. Had no idea I had an inferior machine. Not sure why parents chose it. Used to read the Future Mag ST Format religiously.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor gets Game of Year Edition

One of my favourite games of recent times. Just fabulous fun. The DLC though... terrible. The Bright Lord is just a shorter, much inferior version of the game. All the mechanics are changed. I lasted 1 hour then took the game out never to play it again. This was after spending 50 hours in the main game. I'd stick to a cheap version of the original disc.

Tearaway is being retold on PS4 as Tearaway Unfolded

daft_punk_909

I assume this will need the PS4 camera? The camera was fairly integral to the Vita version.

This does feel a shame, the Vita version was perfect for a handheld. On PS4 will this feel a little easy and twee? A bit too simplified for a 4 hour gaming session? I guess ultimately MM spent time and money making a Vita exclusive and due to the smallish user base it just didn't sell enough to warrant the outlay, thus this. I hope they make enough money from it, MM are a developer to be cherished. I just wish the Vita was cherished by more!

I'd heard that Rockstar had found that the majority of players only completed 5/10% of GTA IV's story mode. I'm interested whether they will respond to this in V's story or marketing. I'd imagine talk of the biggest city ever isn't overly appealing to someone who only completed 5% of the last game?!

Completed and loved the previous 4, however, think I've now had enough of them. They take me a while to complete and every step is brilliant. But, like a good series of books, I don't want them to go on forever.

Whilst PSP is still popular, surely Sony want those people to buy Vita's?

This looks great. Joining Uncharted and Gravity Rush as the only 3 real AAA quality Vita game?

I'm excited about Assassins Creed 3 too, but, might start with this. The PS3 version is much more likely than this to be reduced come Dec 26th. Using Uncharted as an example the top Vita games will be reduced in price much slower than their console counterparts.

There's us lot moaning about the price of memory on the Vita's.

Both outrageous prices, but at least Sony is 1/2 the price of Apple!

Have Sony ever commented on these updates?
Have they apologised or said they will improve them?
It feels like a journalist really needs to grill them and see what they say. They surely can't understand how frustrating it is for the user base. If Microsoft mange it (I don't own an XBox so can't comment), it's insane that Sony can't.

I was thoroughly disappointed by this. I found the interviewing tedious and the clue searching really boring and dated. Stuck at it longer than I would have because it was Rock*.
Felt a sense of relief when I traded it!
