Absolute arse. First they announce AT&T as the provider, then crappy plans and then announce you can’t use it for multiplayer or even DLC! Why would I pay extra just for Near and Twitter plus some leaderboard BS that can update once I get home to use my wifi? Sony really dropped the ball on this one.

    This was the game I bought a Vita for and because of a stupid pushed back release date it landed itself onto shelves when gaming cash was scarce. I plan to pick this up soon. Abrupt endings aren’t necessarily bad if done right, like Sweeny Todd or Dr. Horrible. In any case, good review. I look forward to playing it one day soon.
  • Dragon’s Dogma Review
    He meant “bad” as in like Michael Jackson “Bad”. As in “cool/awesome/radical”. So bad game bad review translates to “Awesome game and an amazing review”.
  • Dragon’s Dogma Review
    Good article. I agree with pretty much everything you said. However, I haven’t beaten the game yet. I know you had to rush it to get the review up and many of my friends are burning through it, but I’m taking my sweet time. At around 55 hours into the game and haven’t even fought a Griffin or Drake yet (ran into a Griffin 3x and I can’t get one to land and fight me, even if I shoot it. I saw a Drake in teh forest and ran from it like the biggest sissy in history.)

    Seeing that Drake walking in the forest out of nowhere gave me the same feeling that seeing that Tigrex for the first time on that Popo quest in Monster Hunter 2nd G. It was one of those “THAT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HERE!!”. I just feel I am too weak to fight one now though I am itching to do it anyway. If I hadn’t been so far from home with so many supplies I would have likely tried it.

    In any case, I can’t say if the ending is good or bad yet because I barely got anywhere in the main story so far. Will probably be 150+ hours before I get the plat and that’s just fine with me.

    The fanboy in me wants to give it a perfect score but it’s not perfect. B+ is a fair score, though I personally would probably score it a bit higher at this point. Time will tell if the ending makes me drop my rating like ME3 did.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Interview: Matt Cannon for JAM Live Music Arcade
    Nice review, Animal Man. Congrats on getting your first interview as well. I’m sure if the first of many. You guys make me want to pick this game up. Unfortunately, money is a bit tight right now and all my free gaming time is going towards Dogma, but I will keep my eye out for this and the Walking Dead game you guys reviewed as both have tickled my fancy.
  • Dragon’s Dogma Ur-Dragon mode revealed
    Sucks they are seeming to do this on launch day only as I will have to drive 20 minutes to my gamestop after work due to rush hour traffic. Then another 15-20 back home, eat, install the game, etc. It could be fairly late before I can even boot it up and then create a character if I don’t want to use the one from the demo. All that equals little to no time to fight said dragon. Having it only on launch day is super gay. I certainly hope that’s not the case.

    ive heard that here in Slovenia were gona have T2 for vita 3g, ive got no problem with that,
    so i wana know more about this ATnT provider, are they realy that badd of a service in the states, or why is eweryone so pissed about it?

    • Akeem340

      Their the worst they charge high prices and give you nothing. They only very popular because they had the iPhone for 3 years exclusively in the US before other carriers got it.

  • Rob

    Seems to be incorrect on a few points. You can import a Hong Kong model and use it on AT&T or T-Mobile in the states since it’s unlocked. The Japanese model is locked to Docomo, and the American model is locked to AT&T. Based on that, the only model that you could travel abroad with is the Hong Kong Vita unless they unlock the other regions’ units.

    • Joe Garcia

      Hm, interesting. I looked into it and it seems that you’re right. I guess that means that the Hong Kong unit would be compatible with any GSM network around the globe?

  • Akeem340

    Will the Skype app be video calling enabled? And can anyone develop an app for vita & put it on PSN if Sony Allows?

    • Rob

      Nope, they specifically said at CES that they aren’t targeting the App Store or Android Market and are only focusing on the core apps (Skype, Flickr, Netflix, Facebook, etc.).

    According to http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/psvita/settings/google.html the Vita will support Google Maps.

    What i want to know is if the Vita will save maps to the memory card and you will be able to preload your map/route, so you don’t have to use your 3G data connection downloading maps in real time (and waste valuable MBytes of your data plan every time you use the GPS) but only use the 3G for positioning.

    • Joe Garcia

      I hope that’s the case, as it is with most smartphones.
