If you don't know, Borderlands 2 takes the open-worldI know you've been waiting for it...THIS IS FINALLY THE GAME YOU SHOULD BUY A VITA! If you don't know, Borderlands 2 takes the open-world elements and wasteland exploring of Fallout, mixes it with the Space Sci-Fi Story elements of Mass Effect, and LARGELY plays off a sense of humor reminiscent of a Tarantino film (violence and cheap humor). Wow, Iron Galaxy and Sony knocked this one out of the park. As someone who's played both PS3 and Vita versions, I have to say this version is great. A true example of how a port should be done. Graphics are close to the PS3 Versions, great framerate, and no missing content. This IS the console Borderlands 2, but it is better because it can be picked up and played wherever you want. $39.99 gets you 6 DLC packs and a brand new game that looks beautiful. Run, don't walk, out to your nearest store and buy this immediately if you already have a Vita. If not, the $199.99 Vita Slim bundle INCLUDES the game and is a perfect gateway into the glorious product that is a portable Borderlands 2.… Expand

Immediately you start the gameInfamous: Second Son is every bit as mind-blowing as when I booted up Uncharted 2 for the first time on PS3. Immediately you start the game and are just in awe of how much detail was put into it. The water actually looks like water, the faces look every bit as impressive as Killzone Shadow Fall's (minus the horrible audio-lip sync issues that KZ:SF had) and good god...when you arrive at the destination you spend most of the game in (Hint: It's a Washington State city...)...don't even get me started on how cleverly the environmental elements are place and work with you. The particle effects...beautiful.
My ONLY complaint with the game: 3 separate occasions in the entire game (not too shabby) I watched civilians walk into walls and momentarily glitch. This type of thing takes away from the immersion, BUT it's not enough to take away from the game as a whole.
Delsin, unlike Cole, has a fantastic personality and sense of humor. While I appreciated Cole and had respect for the character, video games are about escape into the world the character are in. I'd compare the personalities of Cole and Delsin to that of Batman and Iron Man, respectively. Sure, I could be a hard-ass with the occasional one-liner...or I could have some fun being the immature brat with superpowers. Both have their place in video games and media in general, but I enjoyed how Delsin takes the situation he's in seriously while not taking HIMSELF too seriously.
I don't know how exactly to explain it...but this game feels...well, FUN. It's fun in a way many games aren't able to be. It creates scenarios where you can say "wait...I can climb up THAT?" or "Ha, I didn't know I could use that as an energy source!" or "Wow, I wasn't expecting that to happen!" In the same way some of the greatest games of the all time have done, Infamous Second Son challenges players to actually have fun at the same time as playing through the story. You're not saying "ugh, if I could just get past this one part...". You're saying "I liked the way that felt!".
Second Son is a harmonious melding of an intriguing story (especially when you take it to it's fullest potential with "Infamous Paper Trail") and entertaining gameplay. Maybe the plot isn't a highly cerebral one as is that of "Bioshock Infinite", but it doesn't have to be. It's a perfect balance that makes the world and it's characters come to life.… Expand

With all due respect, I have never enjoyedI take this game for what a Call of Duty game has always been for me: a fun multiplayer experience. With all due respect, I have never enjoyed the Single Player campaign in a Call of Duty game all that much and was glad that a hefty chunk of it was taken out to focus on why everyone buys it, which is the multiplayer. Multiplayer is solid, has the same perks and level system from console iterations and overall is an enjoyable experience. The reviews from critics are actually a little shocking to me. I rate this game one point higher than I would have normally in hopes that it will compensate for the unnecessarily poor Critic reviews. If you are on the fence, proceed with caution. It would not hurt to wait until it went down in price. That being said, this is Call of Duty multiplayer on a handheld and it is done in a respectable manner, in my opinion.… Expand

AsThis game is absolutely fantastic. As someone who never played it on PC, I decided I absolutely NEEDED to play it on 3DS. I was blown away. As someone who never grew up with the Atari and Activision games of yesterday, I can still tell that this game is a loving tribute to all things of that nature, with an incredible soundtrack and love put into practically every piece of the game. If you own a 3DS and haven't bought VVVVVV, you have made a huge mistake.… Expand
