Man I knew I should have got Mercenary when it was $5, now it's still too much with this sale. But I might be forced to go in for Ragnarok Odyssey. Anybody recommend?

I bought Ragnarok Odyssey new for $40 because I was starving for a good Vita game and it seemed promising. Sadly, I didn't think it was very good. No doubt, it's fun for a little while, and the story isn't half bad. But it gets painfully repetitive pretty fast, and the character types are so awfully imbalanced that only half of them are worth trying to use. I can almost guarantee you'll find yourself using the Cleric most of the time unless the mission requires you to use something else.

The worst part for me, and it may be just me, is that I found the difficulty scale to be all over the place. Once you get into the meat of the game it goes from mind numbingly simple to hulk smashingly difficult from one mission to the next. I found that very frustrating.

If you can get it for super cheap, it's probably worth a try. Maybe I just suck at it, but I can't recommend based on my experience with the game. Hell, if you lived near by World I'd give it to you. I'll never go back to it.

World, there's a video of it on the PS Blog if that helps.

Can't remember which, but it's either on the main page or just go back 1 page.

Sony tricked us into buying the Vita. They had Uncharted for release and nothing else afterwards.

Didn't know they force you into buying it. Weird, I got mine with not one broken finger. Still enjoy it minus the finger.

anybody who enjoys rpgs and hasn't tried it should definitely look into ni no kuni. Not sure what they're going to be asking during the sale, but you can pick up from amazon for less than $20 on disc and it's more than worth it.

As for the vita games, I'm undecided on this sale. I have plenty of free digital content for my vita, would love to actually see a good deal on a disc.

So my sons b'day is coming up and he's been asking for the VIta. My mom asked me what he'd like for his b'day yesterday so I tell her to go get the Vita. My mom is 71 y.o. but a young at heart type and went to our local Game Stop (Syosset, NY). I'm a busy man and normally I'd pick it up for her to give him. So this was going to save me some time. Last night I get a text from her saying the guy in Game Stop said they aren't making the PS Vita anymore and besides the Nintendo 3DS is much better anyway, maybe you'd like to buy that? This kind of stuff angers me to no end. They see an older lady come in and try n push something else on her. I'm going down there saturday and see about this.

Is there a grain of truth to the "Not making it anymore" as in maybe Game Stop just won't be carrying it anymore?
