I just re bought a vita. I had to sell my first one because I was a broke college student and I really needed the money. I am glad I got a new one. I was wondering. How does Persona 4 Golden play? I have played the Shin Megami Tensei games but I don't know if they are similar to the Persona games. I love RPGs I was just wanting to know if anyone would recommend it.

Depends. Persona 1 and 2 are a lot more similar to SMT games than 3 and 4 are.

Persona 4/Persona 4 Golden, in particular, does not feel like an SMT game at all. So, you know how SMT games tend to be dark, hardcore dungeon crawlers focused on competing philosophies and end of the world type stuff? Nothing like P4/P4G at all. P4/P4G is a high-school sim/dungeon-crawler hybrid. The story is very slow because the emphasis is almost entirely on developing relationships with a cast of rich, multi-dimensional characters. So, you'll go to school, listen to lectures, study, go to movies with your friends, listen to their problems, work part-time jobs... AND occasionally you will go into dungeons to advance the plot and strengthen your characters.

The two aspects of this game (life sim and dungeon-crawler) sound very different, but they're actually quite interconnected. Your friends' Personas will grow stronger and develop new skills as you grow closer to them in your daily life, which directly affects how efficient they are in battle; things that happen, and people you meet, in the dungeons directly affect your daily life as you go through the game.

There is Persona fusing in this game, like in SMT with demon fusing, but unlike SMT, Personas don't act as party members. You can summon them to perform spells, but your friends ARE your party members.

SMT games tend to be very dark and serious, whereas P4/P4G is quite light-hearted for the bulk of the game.

Also, P4/P4G has some dating sim elements. When you grow close enough to a female classmate, they can actually become your girlfriend.

P4G is a wonderful, wonderful game. One I've sunk hundreds of hours into. It's one of the only RPGs I've ever started replaying immediately after I'd finished with it (and it is a long game, keep in mind: my first playthrough took me about 75 hours). It's one of the most well-written, humorous, and engaging games I've ever played. But, aside from the fusion system and the spell names, there is almost no SMT here.

Thanks. I'll definitely look into the series. I can find Persona 4 Golden pretty cheap, so I might pick it up next time I am out.

I still have to pick up the first DanganRonpa, then in April I'll try to get Ragnarok Odyssey Ace and Conception II. Oh yeah, and Project Diva f as well.

^There's a face I haven't seen in a while. Glad you're enjoying it. I also agree, I think the Vita has a lot of good games, but most of them don't exactly try to appeal to a wide audience unless it's a port, so I can see why a lot of people aren't interested in it. Oh well, at least some of us are happy.

I'm surprised that you recognize me, I don't think I've made a single post in the last 2 years. I still visit this site daily, though. I need my Nintendo news during breakfast =)

Speaking of which I never asked this, but who is your Avatar? I've looked around and couldn't figure it out.

I don't think anyone has ever guessed who she is^^ It's Cammy Meele from Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth. One of my favorite characters from that game.

I envy the North American Vita owners right now, Europe didn't get squat during Vita's anniversary week:(

X-Seed is officially localizing Akiba’s Trip 2 in the U.S. under the title Akiba's Trip: Undead & Undressed. The game will be released on both PS Vita and PS3. Apparently there is no plan to censor anything out of the U.S. version.

I don't know what's going on, but I like it. Between Senran Kagura (released this year in Europe, at least), Monster Monpiece, and this, I think it is safe to officially call 2014 the Year of Ecchi.

Football manager classic is apparently still coming to the Vita http://thevitalounge.net/football-manager-classic-2014-coming...

I hope they keep the promised functionality where you can continue your PC save on your Vita, if they do and make a bundle I think this has the chance of really boosting Vita sales in the UK

Putting aside PS+ games that I can access anytime...

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
Toukiden
Rayman Legends
Dragon's Crown
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
Muramasa Rebirth
Ys: Memories of Celceta
Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3
Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus
Lumines: Electronic Symphony
Atelier Totori Plus
Atelier Mereru Plus
Virtue's Last Reward (someone misplaced my 3DS copy)

Not to mention all of the games coming out later this year that I want. The Vita's lineup is looking really awesome this year.

Recently downloaded Project Diva f, and the game is a ton of fun. Perhaps my favorite rhythm game since Elite Beat Agents.

I've only played a little, but I like it a lot so far. The campaign seems especially fun, though obviously multiplayer is the star of the show. I'm still waiting for bots, though, so I can practice in private matches.

I got it. It's great if you like Beat 'em ups, especially ones with lots of moves, but like any Beat 'em up, it's much better with friends. Personally I'm kinda glad I only paid $30 for it, but I think it's cheaper than that right now, so go for it.

It is a fully-featured FPS in your pocket that is very good in its own right. Multiplayer is very fun, and the controls feel great. There's lots of options for what kinds of guns you can have, and the single player and multiplayer maps reflect that as well.

It's far and away the best portable FPS ever.

Yup, Dragon's Crown is a solid beat em up. Beautiful artwork, graphics, animations, etc. A new patch gives you a higher level cap and the ability to play through randomly generated dungeons should make you coming back after you beat everything too...

@Canis and Moomoo, thanks! I'll think I'll download it tonight before going to bed.

Portable shooters tend to be something of a joke, but this is definitely one of the few, if only, exceptions. It has great multiplayer, a solid single-player campaign, a stable framerate, gorgeous graphics, and good, expansive level design.
