Quick Look?

#1 Posted by asantosbr (116 posts) -

WHen GB crew will start doing Vita's Quick Looks?

This would be a great place to start.

#2 Posted by cheddartyme (133 posts) -

I'm pretty sure they don't do them becuase they don't have the capture gear.

The best they can do with the Vita right now is over the shoulder view of person playing the game. For some reason or another Sony hasn't given anyone a kit to record video from the Vita yet. It's stupid as hell but whatever.

Its a shame they dont like doing the over the shoulder Quick Looks, I didnt think it looked that bad during the launch ones

#5 Posted by Imsorrymsjackson (855 posts) -

Does anyone actually own and play a Vita, I thought that thing was dead in the water.

No video out = no quick look.

@Nightriff: But the stupidest thing is capture gear exists, the developers have them, they just won't give them to the press.

#8 Posted by Nightriff (4866 posts) -

@Imsorrymsjackson: Yeah, it's great, play it way more than the 3DS, and FUCKING PERSONA 4:GOLDEN in a month.

@SerHulse: I didn't say it was smart, we all should tweet at Adam Boyes to give GB one in time for the Golden QL. He works for Sony right?

#9 Posted by BlackLagoon (1371 posts) -

Alex is reviewing it though, so that's something. Hopefully he'll like it - reviews have been a bit mixed so far.

@BlackLagoon: Apparently he isn't a big fan of the AC series according to Patrick

I guess I just don't see a point in handheld gaming anymore really, I read when I travel these days.

I think if there was any way he could get them out I am sure he would. He must have heard the complaints a thousand times. Him and @shanewatch. If GS, IGN and GameTrailers don't have capture equipment then nobody does.

For whatever reason Sony Japan ain't playing ball and the way that corporation is structured - there ain't much Sony US can do about it.

@Imsorrymsjackson: I can understand that notion but I still enjoy it, nice distraction working nights

@alternate: Sucks....

Yeh, I used to work nights, I can see how that could help. I think I miss handheld gaming consoles out because of my addiction to Jetpack Joyride on my phone.

There's also Aram Jabbari, who just left Atlus for Sony. He actually did a preview of Persona 4 Golden for GameSpot where he brought a development Vita they could capture footage from. Hopefully that's something he can do more of until a more permanent solution can be arranged.

The point for me is to play the games that are exclusive there. I haven't used a handheld outside of my home in about 10 years but I still try and get them all. If the game stopped being there, I wouldn't have to buy them anymore.

@Imsorrymsjackson: Granted I am in a totally different market where handheld gaming is dominant (Japan) but I would get almost no gaming down if not for my handheld. I spend more time in the train than I do at home, not counting the time I'm asleep. Probably even then.

When you work 16 hour days and your only time to relax is on the commute to/from work, handheld gaming starts to look REALLY nice.

Yeh, I guess it would. If I was starved of my PC or my consoles then I suppose I would end up going down the same path.

It's alive and well. It's actually got some really good games on the system, they are just few and far between. I love my Vita and the handful of games I play on it. More will come, but I doubt it will ever be the success that Nintendo handhelds are.

I think Nintendo have always had and possibly always will dominate the handheld market. Its just a shame that there aren't more exclusives for the Vita that make it worth a purchase for me.

@Imsorrymsjackson: Yes as a matter of fact and AC3:Liberation is pretty damn great

#22 Posted by That1BlackGuy (217 posts) -

AC3: Liberation is that knock, I really enjoyed playing it for the limited time I had with it. A couple of noticable bugs I'll give you that (and I'm" the type of gamer who doesn't care about that stuff) but overall the experience for my time with it was really enjoyable.

His latest tweet about it would suggest he's not going to score it highly... "Still playing through AC III: Liberation, still not liking it very much. This is not the Vita blockbuster you were looking for."

@Imsorrymsjackson: I think so, but I can't bring myself to ever buy a 3DS, given the fact that I'd have to buy two of them. Nintendo region-locking handhelds is absolutely ridiculous.

Yes. However Patrick suggested that Alex wasn't a fan of the main Assassin's Creed games in the first place.

I know, I don't know what they were thinking when they added that little treat.
