Reader Discussion: Do You Use Remote Play With Your Vita?

One of the coolest benefits of owning a Vita and a PlayStation 4 is the option to remote play games. Do you take advantage of it?

Despite having a lot of love for Wii U and my handhelds because they allow me to play games without monopolizing the TV, remote play is something I have never never been able to take advantage of. I love the idea of playing PlayStation 4 games on a small screen in my hand, but technological limitations have always created a wall. Even if I was sitting on the floor in front of my PlayStation 4, I would get incredible stuttering and unplayable framerates.

I have only tested it a little bit, but the latest update for PlayStation 4 and Vita seem to be helping. If it truly works as advertised now, I see myself using it a lot more.

How about you? Do you use remote play? Or have you been experiencing the same issues I have?

LittleBigPlanet Vita Developer Shows Off Suspense-Adventure Title Hunger In New Trailer

Tarsier Studios is known primarily for developing LittleBigPlanet Vita and porting Tearaway to PlayStation 4, but it recently released a trailer for its creepy, totally original game, Hunger.

The game is much different in tone that Tarsier's previous partnerships with Media Molecule and the LittleBigPlanet series. Hunger follows a little girl named Six as she tries to navigate a terrifying facility called The Maw. Tarsier is calling the game a 'suspense-adventure' title and a spiritual successor of sorts to an unreleased game the studio worked on called City of Metronome. The trailer recalls games like Limbo and is unnerving to watch in the best way.

Tarsier has not announced a release window or a platform, but considering the studio's partnership with Sony, PlayStation 4 seems like a pretty good bet.

JRPG Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines Gets U.S. Release Date On Vita

Death is certain, but for the clan in JRPG Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, it comes sooner than you'd expect. With a life span of just two years and the inability to procreate, members of this cursed clan must mate with gods in order to continue their lineage and dungeon crawling ways.

The advantage of mating with a god is that it affects the stats and appearance of your descendant, and with over 100 deities in the game, the choices you make on this front affect your family tree.

Your party of adventurers consists of four members, and there are eight different classes for characters. Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines appears on March 3rd as a digital download on the PlayStation Store for $ 19.99.

Our Take
The Vita is on its last legs, and this kind of low-cost, digital-only way of making games – particularly niche ones like this –  should have been happening all along. It would have made those many months without any games to play on the handheld a lot more interesting.

Free-To-Play FPS/Card Game Hybrid Deadman’s Cross Now On Vita

Deadman’s Cross came out almost exactly a year ago on IOS and Android and today Square Enix has released a Vita version of the free-to-play hit. Deadman’s Cross mixes first person shooter elements and a card game together and both revolve heavily around zombies. While the mobile versions originally launched with around 100 cards, the Vita edition has 400 cards to collect.

Deadman’s Cross features both co-op and PvP features that works across all three versions of the game. Considering the mobile versions alone attracted 4.7 million downloads, there should be a healthy amount of competition. Cross-save is a feature of Deadman’s Cross, so you can bounce your save around between all three editions of the game.

The launch trailer above shows off the zombie first-person shooting which you can use to collect all of the different zombie trading cards. The game looks fairly goofy at points with parachuting zombies being a highlight of the trailer. On February 25th, there will be a crossover with Capcom’s Resident Evil Revelations 2, but no further details are known at this time.
