Re: The PSP collecting thread

what's Shinobido like? I saw there was Vita sequel, but it looked ported from PSP almost.

Love Tempest, Love my Vita and am a Minter fan (I'll forget about his utterly miserable twitter feed though). Should be good. Just don't make it £12.99 or something mental Jeff.
