Disappointed you still haven't split up the Vita IGCs to be Weeks 2 & 4 instead of 3 & 4.

 

Ah well, at least I have Guacamelee! and the Soul Sacrifice demo to keep me busy!

Dragon Fantasy kind of looks interesting. Hopefully there's a demo to try the game out before making a decision. Malicious I'll be downloading, though from what I've been reading the game isn't too great.

 

I've been trying to play Labyrinth Legends from last week though, which so far is harder than expected. You need stars in order to advance to different dungeons, and if you mess-up then you have to start the dungeon all over again... which is annoying.

Thanks for the update. Thanks for the GTA discounts, but since I have them all on disc already, I won’t be getting the digital versions until they’re free with Plus.

Here are some games I’d love to see in the IGC:

God of War (any/all games in the series; digital versions of GOW3 & Ascension)
Grand Theft Auto (any/all games in the series)
Metal Gear Solid (any/all games in the series; digital version of MGS4)
Red Dead Redemption
Saints Row 3
Uncharted (any/all games in the series)

 

I'd also really appreciate it if MGS: Portable Ops was added to the Vita store.  It's on all the other region stores, but not North America.  I've been bugging the Twitter accounts of Konami & Kojima, but still no luck.  What else can be done?  That's the only MGS game I haven't played!

Yeah I'm interested in Dragon Fantasy myself. I grew up on the JRPGs it's spoofing, so I'm hoping it can be entertaining to boot.
