Speaking of has anyone gotten their beta invites yet?! So far I've only hear EU codes have been set which has left me checking my email quite a few times today hoping the US codes will go out soon. From what I've seen LBp vita looks every bit as good as it is on console an will be its flagship title for quite awhile.
Tried the Resistance demo and it wasn't bad... But it wasn't great either. Kind of meh to be honest.
Graphically, it's better in some places than NOVA 3 and worse in others. Almost everything looked at least OK, but some things looked like they were straight out of a PSP/PS2 game (the chimeran ship that is crashed in the beginning warehouse or whatever). Bump mapping, lighting, and particles weren't bad.
Also noticed a few sound glitches- Smitty (or whatever the fire fighter you rescue in the beginning's name is) moves his lips after his voice plays. Seems really inconsistent.
It also got relatively boring quick, because you just do the same thing over and over. The level design is very linear- they just lay it out in a zig-zag sort of way. No multiple paths or anything.
Graphical quality kind of reminds me of Fallout 3/New Vegas. It looks great in some places, but bad/subpar in others. Of course, the Fallout games offer craploads of gameplay and this does not.
Story seems like it was put on the back burner or written overnight and never revised. You're never really introduced to Tom Riley- you don't know anything about him except that he's a firefighter. It also really bugs me that he can use all these weapons without any explanation. Did he used to be in the military? Is he a gun enthusiast?
Ultimately feels like a long proof of concept or something. I think if they had baked it a little longer, it wouldn't be so doughy. All of this is based of the demo (which is the first level) so take this with a grain of salt. Think I'll just wait until it's $20 or less. Definitely not worth $40. Also not the best handheld FPS I've played (has the best controls hands down though).
For all the US vita owners some good psp games got added to psn today as well :
Astro Boy: The Video Game
Ben 10 Alien Force
Ben 10 Alien Force: Vilgax Attacks
Ben 10: Protector of Earth
Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction
Despicable Me: The Game
Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier
King of Pool
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4
LocoRoco: Midnight Carnival
No Gravity: The Plague Of Mind
Parappa the Rapper
Secret Agent Clank
The Secret Saturdays: Beasts of the 5th Sun
SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo
Have I have been playing single player more than 6 hours now and I have to say story isn't bad at all.
If you are resistance fan or want to give a try to FPS games, this game is awesome. More you go, you unlock badass guns and more different ways to upgrade them, and intel tells you hidden messages. This game probably worth $40
