TOMBA! :D I loved that game. I still remember getting the demo disc for it through the mail with the Playstation Underground service and immediately enjoying the game.

Question about the release: I hear MonkeyPaw Games is publishing this and I know they usually do the PSOne Classic Imports. Will Tomba be a Japanese import title or the localized version? Doesn’t matter too much to me. Just want to know what to expect when I download it..

To all of those who complain that we never get good older games, if you don’t buy Tomba, you’re part of the problem. This is seriously the best news I’ve seen on here in awhile. Thank you Sony and MonkeyPaw for maknig this happen, To put things in perspective, Tomba is on par with Super Mario World, Mario 3, and Yoshi’s Island. It is easily as good as those games and is among the best Playstation games of all time. I say that with complete seriousness, you MUST own and play this game. You will not regret it.

+ AsahiSeth on June 17th, 2012 at 4:21 pm said:

Also, you guys may want to correct the picture. That image is of the European version of Tomba, not the US version.

Since we’re on that subject, you could just go ahead and release it right now instead of waiting until Tuesday. I won’t complain.

“Magic: The Gathering Duels of The Planeswalkers 2013″?
Oh god, bang goes my social life:D So addictive those games are even though i am not normally into games like that.
Anyway one thing missing in those ‘Magic’ games, & that is you can’t play your own music off your PS3′s hard drive while your playing the game:( Well the last 2 games you couldn’t so hopefully you can in the new one hopefully;)

Interesting to see Tomba i havent played that in years. Also debating to get the Lego game. ive been interested in the series since the Harry Potter games so ill probably pick it up.

Will Lego Batman 2 be remote playable like Lego Batman was?


29

+ Alucard-XII on June 17th, 2012 at 5:19 pm said:

I’m very glad to see Tomba. I have two questions:

1) Can you confirm that if we already have PS1 Classic games purchased from the current PSN store, we will be able to download it on PSVita without having to purchase it again?

2) I know it’s out of your hand when people request for specific releases here, but could you at least look into two of Sony’s own PS1 games that never made it to the US: Hermie Hopperhead and Rapid Reload.

36

+ iTofuMan on June 17th, 2012 at 5:57 pm said:

@ PainOfSarrow

Fully agree. but remember there is still one more week of June left. and since the game came out end of April i would assume if anything that the episodes will be updated near the end of the months. Still i find it weird that not even on TellTales websites/facebook have they not mention anything about why they still havent put up Episode 2. in all honesty i hope the rest of the episodes are not like this.

+ AceOfSpades725 on June 17th, 2012 at 5:57 pm said:

Any word of the Wake Up Club app or Doctor Who the Eternity Clock for Vita?

I know we got 12 games (PS3 and PSN) for plus.. but what about PSX and Add-ons?

Lego Batman Vita support Cross-play? If not why?

Is Lego Batman 2 for the Vita a stripped down port, like the other handheld? If so Why?

@ iTofuMan

i realy cant understand why in the living worldddd would they not atleast inform us on any information at all about EP 2. is it realy that Difficult for them to even update us on what the hell is going on… i hope the rest of the Episodes are not this way eather. i wouldnt be this upset if they atleast gave us word on the game.


47

+ bakerarmy on June 17th, 2012 at 6:24 pm said:

If it is a slimmed down port with no cross-play, why bother make it?

+ bakerarmy on June 17th, 2012 at 6:26 pm said:

Also Sorry for all the posts. I tried about 3 times and had no luck. I plan on getting Batman for my PS3, just not sure about the Vita, since I never got a answer. I looked every place online.

Any time frame for TWD Episode 2?


49

+ ModSquade on June 17th, 2012 at 6:29 pm said:

Disappointing drop. Guess Sony splurged their month of good content with last weeks releases.

Save for Tomba, I was expecting better.
