@Sid It’s alright, I can only imagine how tough this time of year must be for you guys with E3 around the corner.

…..and you didn’t talk about Borderlands 2 on Vita. Too bad…it is a great game that i’m fully enjoying. Guess you took the negative reviews to heart, and put this on your ignore list.

Here are some of my suggestions for Sony
Can we see some more free minis come to PlayStation 3. We only have Jetpack Joyride.
When Puppeteer comes to PlayStation Plus can you switch it out for XCOM: Enemy Unknown?
Can we get a wish list feature for the PlayStation Store?
Can we get a search feature for the download list?
Can we have the ability to delete trophies especially the ones that are at 0%?
Are we going to see a Best of PlayStation Network Vol. 2 anytime soon?
Are we going to see more 99 cent indie flash sales especially for next weekend?
And most importantly When Limbo comes to PlayStation Plus can we please get it for the PlayStation 3 as well? Pretty please

Nice, I can hear it now since it is Vita compatible.

My simple suggestion, other than mp3.

More Cross Platform support.

Tansistor looks interesting,though needed more for PS3 and Vita.
Waiting for Dead Nation to go on sale , to pick up the add on content for roughly same price.
Been looking toward Helldivers, and hope there is some serious strategy element combined with extra cool action not godlike.

Minecraft took my purchase for the two weeks, but Borderlands 2 was tempting although I can play it on PS3 (not sure what I want to).

Right now playing Soul Sacrafice (original).

Oh and more PSP sales. Real ones.

Alot of great games being overlooked, swept under the bed.

Some ofthe older games although a little untextured, they still had better character with a little depth.
No too mention requiring less battery consumption.

Gents, glad another show was in the works for the weekend. Listening in now.

Playing Golden AGAIN. JusTom, I appreciate the recommendations last week. My son has seen me play P4G and now he wants to get Persona Q when that comes out.

Really looking forward to what’s in store at E3. I’m obviously hoping the Vita or PS4 will see a Persona 5 release in the near future.. That would be a really cool surprise.

Have you guys seen the GAF thread on resurrecting the Vita at E3? My thoughts (and would love to hear yours)
My son wants Minecraft on the Vita. If Minecraft online worked as well as KZ:Mercenary, guys – gold mine. (rim shot) Bundle sales, Plus subscriptions for online play..
Please consider dropping the memory card prices to be comparable with their microSD counterparts. That’s such a huge drawback. 64GB = $100? Bitter pill to swallow. When Plus offers great prices on games, yet memory is so expensive… Where do we put all these games?

Do you guys play much on Vita? Since Golden it’s been my go-to device for a while.

Thanks for reading – you guys are titillating.

Hey Sid,

Great show this week!!!

I left voice message with the following question.

Can you guys find out the status of War Thunder for the NA PS Family. Our European PS cousins have had since January I believe and we are still waiting. I heard that Gaijin mentioned a few months back that Sony America has it and that was it. Why is this taking so long for us to get this game. It’s done it should be out already since PS Europe has been playing it for 5 months. Please if you can provide some info this coming week or next week via the PS Blog that would be great.

Thank you and have a wonderful week!

Cheers!!!

Rob aka Graf

Love the show and just wanted to say that for a group of guys who aren’t supposed to talk about Dark Souls anymore, you still manage to work it into every blogcast. Come on Ryan lay down the law!!!! LOL

Keep up the great work.

Aw, no movie talk? Caught Godzilla Sunday at the Outlets in IMAX and ooooooh boy was that an awesome good time! I wanted to cheer every time he roared and the whole theater would just rock.

Justin! What XIV server do you play on? Is Archer your main?

I hate FFXIV… I have way too may backlog games that I need to play and it is preventing me from getting through any of them.

Guys, the quote said on the podcast is of course from Miyamoto: “A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad.”

Something that developers always should have in mind.

Great show, guys. Loving Transistor! Having been waiting impatiently for it and it has not disappointed. The combat system is so unique, engaging, and surprisingly nuanced. Love how you manage functions in the sword. Beautiful to look at. Love the music. Definitely going to get the MP3 version of the soundtrack. I recommend it to everyone.
