VGH #41: Quad-Wielding™

VGH #41: Quad-Wielding™

The new PlayStation Vita is grabbing headlines this week but we’re not quite done with the PSP. On this week’s show, we celebrate the life, love and times of Sony’s last-gen portable by remembering the system’s best games.

Also: The winter gaming drought is finally over as the VGH team chimes in on three big recent releases. Randy really likes The Darkness II, Paul is lukewarm on Kingdoms of Amalur, and D.J. takes a second shot at Soulcalibur V.

Finally, we seriously stretch our acting chops with a scene from the first Dragon Quest game. Thespians!

       PSA: DJMAX Portable 3 isn’t very good. BUT, the PSN Store has DJMAX Fever, which is a compilation of tracks from the import-only DJMP1 & 2. It’s missing some quality songs but is way cheaper than importing.

        You question my research methods?!?!?!

      So, yes, LocoRoco is still ridiculously priced, but I just noticed that you can get it in a bundle with the first Patapon for only $14.99. That’s actually a pretty good deal and both games are great!

      I also found Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror digitally as part of a 2-pack bundle with SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo for $14.99.

    VGCT was hysterical. I imported the original DJMAX and I think I have Fever, but I never could get into the music.
