PlayStation Vita, Trophylist | Posted by Pesico
Feb 01 2012

I’m really looking forward to Unit 13. The game is made by SOCOM developer Zipper Interactive and is made specifically for the PlayStation Vita. It will be the first FPS game for the Vita and is designed to be pick up and play. There is no story in the game. You have 36 different missions and several different soldiers that each have their own strengths and weaknesses. There will also be special missions where you have to kill High Value Targets. They are unlocked when you rack up enough stars in the regular missions. The list contains 1 Platinum, 2 Gold, 17 Silver and 24 Bronze trophies worth 1,230 PSN trophy points.

PS Vita – So Close, But Oh So Far Away

PS Vita

First of all, I get it, I probably shouldn’t complain as most Western people interested in PS Vita will be eagerly awaiting the February 22nd release of the PS Vita. But then again, when it’s so close to appearing at my doorstep, it’s hard not to get exited.

Fedex brought it from Hong Kong to Oslo (Norway) in a matter of days, and with the power outages in Norway, it got stuck there for a day or two. Now their in the process of shipping it to me with a Norwegian company. I’m afraid it’s gonna take a few more days. If I’m lucky I have it tomorrow, if not, I’ll have it early next week.

The frustrating part is that my PS Vita is only about a 30-40 minute drive away from me. I’d be happy to pick it up myself, but I don’t think I’m allowed to.

I will be getting the Japanese WiFi version of the machine, which supports pretty much every language, a 4GB Memory Card and Uncharted: Golden Abyss, with full English support, including brilliant voice acting by Nolan North like in the console versions. Welcome Park, which is a series of mini games that will showcase Vita’s touch features will also be there, and it comes with trophies!

So until February 22nd, I will be playing Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Welcome Park. I could go the fast route with them, but that would probably mean me burning through them in a matter of days, making the wait for more games even harder. I plan on not using guides, trying to get everything done without any form of help. I’m also exited about the fact that this will be my first Uncharted game without making a guide for it. Gonna be nice to simply just focusing on having fun. I don’t think that will be a very hard thing to do.

When February 22nd comes around, I will go on a shopping spree and this is the games that I’m most exited about (not including Uncharted).

The Games I’m Most Exited About:
1. ModNation Racers: Road Trip
I loved the PS3 version, and getting this addictive kart racing game on a handheld is something I’m looking forward to. Most exited about the actual racing, but the touch enabled track editor is going to be interesting as well.

2. Unit 13
I didn’t take much interest in this game when it was announced, but my interest has skyrocketed after hearing more about the social features of it. This is a shooter game designed specifically for a handheld. It’s pick up and play, leaderboards, short missions, no campaign story, and daily challenges. Even though it’s a retail game, I’m probably downloading this as I want to be able to immediately get into it when needed on a daily basis. Got to do the daily challenges.

3. Super Stardust Delta
Super Stardust HD on PS3 was the 1st trophy enabled game, and it was awesome. I probably wouldn’t have played it hadn’t it been because of trophies, but I’m glad it made me play it. It’s an addictive game, perfect for handheld gaming. You play in short bursts and always want to beat your high-scores.

4. Everybody’s Golf
Never tried any of these before, but I have heard great things about them. Golf games are usually fun, and I hear there’s a bunch of unlocks and stuff.
