Back in July I dug out my trusty PS Vita out from the box buried at the bottom of my cupboard. I have a tendancy to play my PS Vita put it down and then ignore it for the next few months. This time I made a promise to myself to invest in some new games and make sure that I play them more frequently than I had before. So far I am sticking to that promise as well.
Now I managed to get a couple of games from the PlayStation Store as well as eBay and CeX.
First up I popped to my CeX to buy another PS Vita memory card as I seem to have lost one of my 4GB ones somewhere. They only had an 8GB memory card in-stock which cost me £15 (pretty reasonable to be honest) and I also picked up Blazblue Chronophantasma Extended for £10 while I was there.
Now I had no idea what Blazblue Chronophantasma prior to picking it up. In all honestly I was intrigued by the box art and went from there. All I know is that it is a 2D fighting game with a story built around it. It also the third game in the BlazBlue series and follows on from BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. I am yet yo play this game as I want to try my best to finish Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment first.
The next two games I picked up while Sony had their Anime Sale on. I was looking at exploring genres of games that I hadn’t played or would normally overlook and the Anime sale was the perfect oppertunity to pick up some new games. The two games that I bought were Hyper Dimension Neptunia Re:Birth 1 which was £4.99 and Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment which was just £3.99.
There were plenty of games in the Anime Sale that looked good and interesting but before I made any final choices I watched trailers and read reviews to see which ones I would probably play. I have started Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment and I still feel that I am only just scratching the surface of the game but so far I’m really enjoying it. I found it a little difficult at first with the controls but I think I have nearly mastered them now.
The final PS Vita game that I purchased was a great find on eBay and that was the Japanese edition of Rayman Legends. Now I’ve seen this version of the game go from anywhere between £15 and £50. I managed to get my copy for just £4.99. Of course I don’t speak Japanese but I bought it more as a collectors item. I’ve been a fan of the Rayman games since I was little and have some great memories of the franchise. I have previously played the English version of Rayman Legends just not on PS Vita.
That’s it for this Gaming Haul. I hope you enjoyed reading this post. I’d love to hear what some of your favourite PS Vita games are. You can let me know in the comments or on Twitter!
