That's interesting I was under the impression that the emulators were all running through the psp emulator but I have to admit I might be long out of date.

I've been taking a bit of a break from the Vita and retro gaming on my PC as well I bought heroes of might and magic 3 of Good Old Games after reading an article about it and I have to admit I'm now addicted they just don't make games like that now.

Still knowing me I'll be back on my Vita in a few weeks.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

I want to try AC3:L... But heard it has really bad framerates issues...
But you know what? I think it's problem with the their engines too.
Because I played the AC3 on my friend's Xbox and it lagged soooo much. Not to mention all these glitches in the game

It is, but for some reason, it just feels better. Maybe it's just excitement from seeing SNES games running on the Vita with better d-pad.

I've been playing it off and on since it was released and really like it still. I like that the career is somewhat broken up with different types of races as you progress. There's also traditional Circuit mode if you want that as well. I think it's great personally.
Thanks. This is the game I want most right now. Looks super fun from videos.

Agreed, Unit 13 is the best if not the only good shooter on Vita. Stranger's Wrath is also great but a very unusual game, not a "pure" shooter by any means.

I just finished AC:L and the framerate issues weren't that bad, most of the time didn't even notice them. It's a good game but very unpolished, could really be something special had the devs been given more time and resources with it.

Head's up, Best Buy is supposedly going to have a sale on some games, but they aren't live yet for some reason. Keeping an eye on the page below and will update when prices go live:

*EDIT*

Sale is live. Silent Hill and Fifa 2013 are $24.99 each, tempted to get them.
