Brilliant collection Shadowman I would give a arm or a leg for those Panorama screen Snoopy and Popeye, used to own Donkey Kong.. I looked up your game recommendations as a lot of the games you mentioned seem right up my street but most are only available through Ebay and insanely expensive. Could you recommend any psychical release Survival horror games on the Vita there's a 2d survival horror game with a Girl and a dog that the name escapes me..

I' be been Axion verge anothor recommendation of yours. I'm on 96-% map and 88% items just getting really annoyed I can't pass the pink lasers before the last boss. Finally worked out that you have to enter the codes in the exact room. I know the monsters can be corrupted and controlled to turn of the 4 pink lasers but this is just annoying me
Also do you have the root letter box set?

Yamowari is the game your talking about, its getting a sequel this year which also looks ace. Also give Corpse Party a look (might be worth playing the PSP games first as its part of a larger story). Also for games that aren't horror per se, but are very dark/unsettling/spooky try Lone Survivor and Home.

Nope on the Root Letter CE. Just got the base game itself.

I've got root letter on order, it should be here Wednesday. Can't wait it looks neat :)

Standard edition for me too. I don't have the ducats for collectors editions.

I've got Root Letter, it's very good.
I have the limited edition and was very upset when it was slashed to half price earlier this year. That's £30 I could have saved…

That's a problem with many Vita CE's I've seen recently. Most seem to drop in price after a couple of months, its only the rare exceptions the shoot up in price. Heck even the LRG releases are not selling out as quick any more... Makes me glad I only go after the games, much more affordable and most hold their price for longer.

That said, three more Vita games ordered today! And I'm totally enjoying the Vita port of Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero. Its a fantastic platformer.

I played it for a quick minute today and it seems exactly the type of game I like.

I bought Drive Girls a scrolling beat em up with girls who can turn into cars and run aliens over, hopefully it arrives tomorrow looks totally crazee.u

Any idea how good Drive Girls is Darren? Meta critic has given it high marks and it's out off stock on most websites including Shopto

A seller had it new bin £29 on EBay and snagged the last copy. The few other listings on EBay where bin £70. Strange for a newly released game to be this hard to get

ShopTo have got them back in stock... my copy arrived today. I'll let you know my feedback later, but it's refreshing to have an arcade style game on the Vita. Don't get me wrong, I love all the RPG stuff we've been getting (can't wait for Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana) but Drive Girls looks great fun...
