    I am LOVIN’ the high GE2 scores ^____________________^

  • Devilgunman

    Can’t wait for sale number for GE2 and Vita TV. They will sell like gangbuster. Vita is vitalized in November.

  • bloodiOS

    Dem God Eater 2 scores! =D

  • JonathanisPrimus

    That’s a pretty solid result for Medarot Dual. Rocket Company’s a smaller publisher so I doubt money was exchanged, haha. It’s good that the game seemingly turned out well, because previous action games in the franchise have been quite poor.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Amazones got a good store. Game was pretty great from the demo.

  • Elvick

    So glad GE2 scored better on the PS Vita.

  • Kevadu

    So what’s the reason for the fairly big gap in scores for the Vita and PSP versions of GE2? Is it just graphical bells and whistles or are there actually performance issues with the PSP version?

    • TheExile285

      Probably the huge difference in graphics and slight control differences. Maybe even trophies to add to overall replay value :V

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Presumably it’s the better visuals, and the better control method.

    • Devilgunman

      2 analog sticks is always superior.

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Sinobi doesn’t have any details about the review, but I’d take it the higher quality graphics and dual analog sticks played a part in the PS Vita version’s higher score.

    • futuristic_imagination

      Yeah pretty much what everyone said two analog sticks made it better to play.

      I couldn’t really play GB: Burst or any action adventure games for a long time due to my hands cramping up using the “claw method.”

    I see Activision is still paying people to rate CoD really high despite is still being more of the same as 2007. (Yes, I have played it)

    • Gariya

      It’s okay, at least GE2 beat it by one score.

    • MyBodyIsReady

      Can’t we stop whining about Call of duty for a bit?

      It’s obvious the real interest is God Eater 2

    • Luna Kazemaru

      QQ much?

    • LustEnvy

      The same can be said of most franchises with a number behind the title. Don’t really get why people have to constantly complain about CoD, when games like Halo, Battlefield/Medal of honor, Gears of War, Mass Effect ( 2 and 3 mainly), Left 4 Dead, God of War, fighting games, old school Mega Man, Sonic, various sports games, etc, are all basically the same as their previous installments with minor improvements to their gameplay, and graphical updates. The only reason CoD gets all the hate, is because it’s the most popular and gets yearly installments. People love to hate on what’s popular.

      • Luna Kazemaru

        You sir win the internet

  • Eclipse

    Nice, I’m really glad to see that God Eater 2 scored so highly.

    I can’t wait to see which version sells more…I’m rooting for the Vita.

    • TheExile285

      Considering VitaTV comes out the same day, I think there will be a big gap between Vita game sales and PSP game sales.

      • MrFinalgamer

        the question is, will the VitaTV sales numbers be bundled with the Vita sales numbers, or will it be a different thing?

        • TheExile285

          Most likely separate.

      • Eclipse

        That would be fantastic. I read last month that the Vita TV’s pre-orders were sold out on Amazon JP, plus the God Eater 2 Fenrir Edition’s were recently sold out all over the place.

        Things are looking pretty good, so I guess we can only hope for the best. :)

  • DrForbidden

    And God Eater 2 Vita takes home the Gold this week.

  • TheBlackRabbit


    • TheExile285

      You expected CoD to get the better score? Lololol, this Japan not US xD

      • TheBlackRabbit

        this one might be a buy if it got 37/40 even in japan……..same with GE2 XD

    • http://twitter.com/GNPixie Lynx

      Considering EVERYONE is finally realizing that all they do is reskin them, yes. I’m not surprised.

  • Arcana Gear

    WOAW so proud of god eater 2… been following this game since the announcement and wished it luck since then…. now it only miss a localization announcememt ;D

  • Budgiecat

    They made God Eater 2 also for PSP? Talk about not moving on Japan…

    • Budgiecat

      wow fastest downvote ever! Literally one second after I posted!

    • TheExile285

      Tbh, the game was original announced as PSP exclusive before Vita was even revealed.

      • Budgiecat

        What year was that? 2011? Because thats the year people got PS4 & Vita devkits…

        Also, remember Final Fantasy Agito was announced first and foremost as a mobile phone game, and FF Versus XIII was announced as a PS3 game….

  • tubers

    Oh wow PES 2014 doesn’t have a vita release? Damn.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    wow for medarot and god eater

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

  • PrinceHeir
