    I thought it was pretty impressive. The games will come - 8GB of GDDR5 was all I needed to be convinced.
    Rockstar is a fairly glaring absence at the end of this document, although I suppose they could be covered by the mention of Take-Two. Suggests that GTA V really is current gen only, or that the rumours it it being a MS exclusive for next gen might be true? http://www.scei.co.jp/corporate/release/pdf/130221a_e.pdf

    (edit: Perhaps not. I didn't realise that Rockstar are owned outright by Take-Two.)

    I hear that The Cave offers great replayability, apart from the fact that it doesn't offer great replayability.

    I'm with Mik on sci-fi, but I make an exception for Alien. You should check it out, Mik.
    I'm 80% sure I played a trial for some kind of Defender remake on XBLA a few years back. It had none of the qualities that made the original so great. (i.e. the sound)

    If CJ hasn't played Retro/Grade by the time he records the next podcast, he will be exposing himself as a pseud in the world of rhythm-game aficionados.

    For me the Vita versions of Mortal Kombat and Uncharted are pretty different cases. MK is a little ugly, but I really don't care because it plays so well - and that's really all I want from MK. I feel like Uncharted loses a bit too much in the transition to the handheld. In my opinion it is the characterisation and dialogue that are a large part of what makes the PS3 versions so great (and the multiplayer), and I don't think Sony Bend nailed that stuff at all. I'm not expecting technical parity - I think Uncharted on the Vita misses the mark in other ways (which is not to say I disliked it - I just didn't love it).

    Also, someone needs to tell CJ's wife: NZ doesn't do game development.

    I don't think there has been a patch - it still locks up my Vita occasionally. It would be a pity to let that stop you getting the game though - I don't find it a huge issue.

    I concur.I get a sense of satisfaction from sneaking around head-shotting dudes with my silenced pistol that I haven't felt since the original Syphon Filter.

    This is the exact phrase that came into my head as I read the first few lines of Muzyka's message. I'd be very surprised to see them do anything substantial.

    I can't guarantee I'll have wi-fi access this weekend, so you might have to count me out this time. I've got lots of family/friend commitments before I head back to Japan on Monday.

    More like cats and toothpaste I would have thought, like closing the gate after the train has derailed.
    I generally prefer the buyer's-guide, although few things turn me off as quickly as someone discussing a game's controls in great detail.
    I actually rarely read reviews these days - if it's a game I'm interested in, I want to avoid spoilers. If it's a game I'm not interested in...I'm not interested. I think the last review I read was because some guy promised me a pony to do so. He didn't come through.

    Now how come you got the reply? I've been at least as much of a pain in the arse as you.
    It's progress, but 'We're looking into it' is the epitome of a noncommittal response. Fingers crossed.
