    Did I cry? No I actually laughed as he went ape shit. It was sort of liberating and blackpilling. He yelled something about "for now on you are both doing outdoor activities!". So I took up skateboarding and bmx.

    Good call, because the console obsessed kids growing up are still thicc blobs to this day into adulthood. Something tells me Sense-A will love this short story.

    I'm gonna try Silent Hill origins. I wish openEmu supported Vita. Hopefully in a future release. It's nice downloading any game ROM for free and playing with a synced controller. So much money saved to test stuff out.
    I finally got origins for my ps2 for a decent price a while back, but it was shortly after I'd finally upgraded to ps3, n I was kinda hooked on the upgraded graphics n shit. I did try it tho, but I think I just got stuck straight away n gave up.

    But yeah, was one of the first games I dl'ed on the vita. Maybe I'll try it again on that. Silent hill is just about my favourite series of games. I actually dl'ed the very first game in the series too, which I've never seen or played at all.

    I was into gaming as a kid too, but thru my whole life I've thankfully always been much more drawn to physical outdoor activities. I wouldn't fucking dream of ever gaming or even turning my TV on during the day.

    Over the last week at work I've customized my vita with all the most appealing PSP, ps1, n vita games I could find. Funny thing is I'll almost certainly never play most of them, lolz. I really don't know when I'm even gonna play the fucking thing, lolololol.

    Sure it'll come in handy one day.

    Yea I haven't really touched any games really in the last 2 yrs, but the amount of downtime Chinese Rice Rabies Flu caused made me look into older titles I've never played. Also not having to pay for PS1 or PSP roms with all these sites is entertaining. That's only two systems.

    This game is pretty good. It gave Resident Evil a run for it's money.

    I made my kids a raspberry pi emulator and they love it. It plays nintendo, sega, playstation n64 games, SNES, etc. I got N64, nes, SNES, sega knockoff controllers. Everything cost less than $100 total off ebay.

    I heard a bunch of rom sites were shut down recently this year. Finding roms online will be a little bit harder.

    This geek seems to keep up on things.

    I think I'll retire the Vita and then purchase a Switch. The Vita hasn't had a good game since 2014. Jason releases weak games with PS1 graphics. The Switch is a new system with tons of games. I've been playing Monster Hunter Freedom Unite since 2009.

    That sucks. Isn't that game in Japanese (no English)?

    Some game/rom releases are Japanese only. It kind of sucks because they have some great titles or versions unless you find a ported version.

    I started in on 'The 3rd Birthday' which definitely gave the early Resident Evil franchise a run for it's money. Their developers pushed the edge w/ that game and introduced stuff you see on modern platforms.

    Also playing CRUSH psp, which is one of the stranger, lesser known challenging puzzle games (2D/3D). It's similar to "The Witness PS4". They both start easy but you'll end of walking away for days and rack your brain like pool balls at an open billiard table.

    These higher levels are Bobby Fischer Autist shit, but I'm knocking them down.

    Ok. I'll have to check this out.

    In regards to the PS Vita, there are lots of videos on hacking the device but I'm not a programmer, in IT nor do I want to spend 20+ minutes installing/uploading software that may brick my Vita. I tried it and got lost during the instructions. I almost threw my Vita at the wall.

    I wish Sony didn't kick it to the side. The system lacked quality games and the expensive memory cards contributed to its downfall. Sony gave up.

    Haha, I didn't realize Sony had created a proprietary SD card that only fit into the Vita, and they did that in 2013? That's some 80's/90's clusterfuck middle management tech company decision making that floated up to the top brass and got signed off on. It's kind of weird a Japanese multi-nat company would fuck up that hard.

    Sony always does that. That's how you make money.

    The dude I bought my vita off, he hacks them n sells them on eBay, all with the same shit pre-installed, had already put that 3rd birthday game on it. I heard it's supposed to b good. Watched a bit of a video on it. Might get to that one next. I was playing resident evil revelations 2, n it was kinda pretty good, but I didn't like the combat n kinda wasn't really enjoying it, so I'll prob abandon it for now.

    The worst thing with the memory cards is they cost an absolute fucking fortune. Mine came with a 64gb one, n I've loaded it right up. I have more games than I could ever need on it, but I would've loved the freedom of having 128gb. I'll just have delete any games I'm not really into to free up space to try other ones.

    It sort of plays like the Siphon Filter games. Better movement and camera angles + graphics for that era. Yet it gets progressively harder and the main character chic's outfit ends up more tattered and skimpy w/ every checkpoint. Like her ass and tits are just flopping around like Art's roaring 20's nonna, but you have to kill Resident Evil style monsters and you're 12 yr old boner.

    Imma rank it 4.5/5

    Ok. Good, Noel. Hacking a Vita takes skill.

    I just purchased a Nintendo Switch Lite because the Vita is so old, lacks Sony support, weak interface, and the lacks good quality games. I've been playing the Vita since 2012. Just Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Gravity Rush, Need for Speed, and Wipeout. These games are SUPER dated and old. I've lost interest.

    Sony announced the they're out of the handheld gaming consoles. The Nintendo Switch Lite is far more superior in terms of games, screen quality, built quality, and it's newer.
