Currently playing Symphony of the Night for the first time on the Vita. I feel so gothic whilst commuting to work, it so nasty. As a teenager I had a N64 but bought a ps1 slim late in it's life cycle with MGS, Resident Evil 1 and 2, Dino Crisis 1 and 2 but never played Castlevania. I can tell you as someone who is coming to this game new, that the game certainly holds up and more so. A classic experience no doubt
Still playing Final Fantasy 9 whenever I get tired of Vita games. I haven't made much progress; I've played it too many times :/
I'd love to finish it so I can move onto every damn Final Fantasy PS1 game I bought during the sale a few months back (Read: all but FF9 was purchased at that time; fire sale). Guess I should play... FF8 next?
I was playing Final Fantasy Tactics, but then I forgot that the game doesn't auto-save when you finish a map. I got wiped in a random encounter, lost 3+ hours of progress, rage quit. I'll get back to it eventually.
I also put in some serious time in Resident Evil 2. I beat it way back when on the N64, but it's fun going back through it.
Oh one more: I bought Castlevania Chronicles X and unlocked Symphony of the Night in it. It has new dialogue, which was a huge bummer when I found out, but the gameplay is intact. I've put way more time in SOTN than in the actual game!
Just bought Vagrant Story for 3 bucks fiddy yesterday. Plan on replaying it some day. One of the few classics I loved, but never finished. I just had other priorities back then. I also saw Front Mission 3 on the store, which I remember being awesome. Guess I already own a bunch of Final Fantasy games, though I find the older ones stemming from the PS1 anthology version to be rather crummy due to the loading times, which were non-existent in the SNES versions fo those games.
For the most parts though, I'll be sticking with PSP games, because unlike the PS1 games, I've played none of those. Since I kinda hit a wall in MHFU, standing in front of Kushala Daora and Tigrex, I decided to move on to a new game today.
Not yet sure what it'll be. Might even take the plunge with Vagrant Story, which I remember to be quite the complexity beast.
Yeah I wouldn't even attempt playing Vagrant Story again without having a FAQ handy. All I remember is that you could customize your weapon in crazy ways but none of it was explained ever.
The funny thing is, the weapon stuff is not even that important; it's mainly the weapon type that matters. So you just swap between blunt, slash, pierce, regardless of weapon affinity, and it's way more enjoyable.
Back on topic, I haven't gotten a vita yet (waiting to make sure I pass the 3-month probation period at my new job before I drop cash for one), but I did just finish Crash Bandicoot 2, and finally decided to pick up Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver. It's a game I've always heard about, but for whatever reason, I never tried it.
I've been playing Tomb Raider and liking it ... the silence of the caves can make it kinda tense. Jumping Flash out of curiosity ... it's not too bad, but has aged.
I love low poly games more than 8/16-bit stuff... I think that'll be the next wave of indie darlings.
