Yeah, I knew that about the PS3, PS4 and the PS Vita’s remote-play. If anything, it just makes me wish that Sony delayed the idea of the PS Vita’s remote-play/extra controller capabilities and just made it exclusive to the PS4 instead of having remote-play be on both the PS4 and PS3. Nope. Sadly, there is no Metal Gear Solid IV port for the PS Vita or even on the US PSN store for that matter. It’d be nice to have on the PS Vita, but the only MGS news I know of is Ground Zeroes finally coming to Steam. Yes, one would assume that of Sony, but it’s not like support for the PS Vita is no longer there. Over 150 PS Vita games (with screenshots inside) You’ll still see third-party, indie and Japanese/niche games released for the system.
Honestly, I wouldn’t mind seeing more original third-party games and their ports on the Wii U. But only if they don’t turn out to be half-assed ports like they’ve been in the past. I remember having a lot of fun with Mario Kart: Double Dash on the GameCube with my family. Mario Kart 8 for me will be a must buy for me when I get a Wii U. As well as, Lego City, Zombi U, Smash Bros. Hyrule Warriors, Windwaker HD, (which I played the original Windwaker before on the GameCube) Pikimin 3, Super Mario 3D World, Wonderful 101, Zelda 2015, maybe Xenoblade and probably some others. If Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem ever gets released I’ll get that as well. Bayonetta 2 is also a possibility if I’m willing to give the series another try. I’m more a fan of Bayonetta when it comes to it’s gameplay and not it’s story. I love Space Dandy! It’s English dub, premise, jokes and opening theme are all great. I’ve actually seen a lot of people (myself included) praise it for it’s English dub where it feels like it was made to be watched that way. Speaking of anime, I saw the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods movie. I thought it was pretty good and funny but it felt way too drawn-out and the ending was anticlimactic at least to me. I’ve also started watching The Devil Is a Part-Timer! with my brother on Netflix.
As for recent games, I’ve played and finished Deadpool (my mini-review) I also started Final Fantasy X/X2 HD Remaster for my PS Vita. I started the port of Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus on my PS Vita which takes advantage of the PS Vita’s gyroscope and touchscreen/rear touch-panel. I also started the Action RPG Drakengard 3 which hasn’t impressed me much so far. The combat is good but it’s pretty much repetitive wave after wave of the same enemy like in a Dynasty/Samurai Warriors game. The toilet humor that they’ve added to the game also has me rolling my eyes. The English voice work on some of the characters I’ve seen so far is good but it’s not great. Unless it’s Christina Vee’s and Mela Lee’s voice who are exceptional at what they do. Lastly, I picked up Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut again for the PS3. It's a campy Japanese psychological horror game. It's also my favorite game of it's kind next to Murdered: Soul Suspect, Alan Wake, and ObSCure: The Aftermath. I love the games soundtrack, eccentric characters and story, and it’s also open-world with driving and reminiscent of early Resident Evil gun gameplay/mechanics. It’s also not that scary for a psychological horror game (since it’s campy) so if you’re interested, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is currently on PlayStation Plus as the PS3’s “free” game on PSN in the US this month.
