I picked up a Vita last week off Ebay. Loving it. Got PS+ so got Thomas Was Alone. Also enjoying cross-buy features of Star Wars Pinball (great news about the stand alone yesterday) and The Pinball Arcade! :D

Glad to hear, I'll finally grab this for my Vita as I'd be holding off for a while (loved the demo though).

Pinball Arcade was my first purchase for the Vita, I've bought some of these tables multiple times on different formats but they're still so much fun to play and the VITA port has extra shine and polish.

I actually find the new Vita tables to be very poor. I bought the Dr Dude/Firepower pack and Dr. is nigh-on unplayable on the Vita. Very stuttery. I read that Cactus Canyon is the same (came out this week).
I've backed Farsight and have given them a chance, when people were slagging them off, but they need to sort out their bugs as I am beginning to lose patience.

Zen's Star Wars pinball plays beautifully though! :)

Bought Guacamelee too and really liking it so far.
Noticed that Machinarium got released and it's not even £5. To be honest it's really worth the price, but how does it handle on the Vita? Does anyone know?

I picked it up last week and quickly completed it. Controls wise its sorta weird, I expected it to be well suited to the touch screen like the iPad version was but I found the touch controls to not be all that great, and the rear touch controls were just pointless (and I couldn't that off either). The pointer controlled by the left stick though worked really well, did a great job of highlighting interactable areas when near by and the use of physical controls made certain interactions (movement especially) feel much more precise than in the iPad version (where I did have instances of my robot not doing exactly what I wanted).

Otherwise its a perfect port. Super smooth, it looks wonderful and its dead fun to play through bar one or two puzzles. Well worth the £5ish I paid for it.

It's an old moan, but I wish the memory cards were cheaper as I've just bought Sound Shapes & I have to do some deleting. On a more positive note, this game arrived earlier in the week.

The PSP God of War games are fantastic, well worth a couple of quid each!

I'd second the GOW games. I'll pass on them as I have the HD up ports that are just as good (but aren't quite as impressive to look at on the big screen as they were on the small screen). Tempted by Motorstorm myself, but I have no space on my Memory Card :(

I've personally been playing my import copy of Muramassa over the last couple of days. It was one of my favourite Wii games and it continues to be just as good if not better as a Vita game. It looks really nice on the Vita's screen, the difficulty is pretty much perfect and I'm really enjoying unlocking all the stuff in the game (especially the swords). This one is going to take a while for me to 100% I think!

Glad you're enjoying Muramasa. :D I'm just about to preorder the US LE version as there's still no word if it's getting a retail release in Europe.

And three more recent arrivals which I do plan on playing sometime in the future. :lol:

Whats the @Field game about? I've never even seen that game before! Sumioni is a favourite of mine, I played the game to death over one weekend. At first it feels a bit clunky and unfairly hard but after getting the hang of it I was clearing levels without touching the floor or taking damage! Its a great but short game.

And yeah, Muramassa is pretty much my favourite Vita game, I just can't put it down!. Its a crying shame that it has no Euro release date :(

@Field is a mix of golf & pinball I think. Can't seem to find much info about it.
