"Borderlands 2 on Vita: Rough Around the Edges": http://j.mp/PRzqss

dang. I was thinking of getting it too.

well, being able to play my PS4 titles on my vita has indeed been well worth the Vita's purchase (not to mention the myriad of titles exclusive to the platform), but I usually only play the PS4 games when I am in a pinch, or in bed. What drives me utterly bat-shit-insane is making the back touch panel work for me. Using the mortar in AC4 or whatever actions Ground Zeroes has mapped to the back, is so absolutely frustrating. My fingers rarely ever find the sweet spot on the first or second try. And sometimes it just doesn't even seem to recognize my touch. That's probably me just touching the wrong thing, but still. With actual buttons, you don't have this issue.

So, here comes Borderlands 2. The non-shooting/aiming shoulder buttons are, what, Special Power and Grenade? Don't know about you, but as a Siren, I'd use my siren power a WHOLE lot. To not be able to have that readily available would probably have me buying a new vita in no time flat (frustration = throwing the damn thing out the window... oh, yeah, and buying a new window, too).

Sounds like devs need to refine their use of deadzones on the rear touch to prevent accidental usage, but personally i have little to no issue with the rear touch either on vita or ps4 games. Also a game-grip really can alleviate the 'accidental touch' problem.

- Get one of these :)

Considering it runs pretty crappy on everything (minus the PC obviously) this isn't surprising, still sad though.

Abberjam has magic fingers. How do you do it? I seldom seem to get it right.

Who gets gaming shame....?

Gaming Shame :  

1) The shame a person feels when they just screwed up and their team has died and lost the match because of it.

2) The shame a person feels when they play a video game, but feel that they should be doing something that would be more productive.

I dont know about you guys, but I run into this more often than not, and its why I dont game as much as I used to.

Like a kid again

Yesterday I drove to my local store to get a new toner for my printer and, as usual, had a look around the gaming section. I was browsing the PS4 games when I heard two kids playing on an exhibition machine i couldn't see around the corner. "What a great game!" "I love this game sooooo much!" "Wow look at that!". The kids where just gasping at what they saw onscreen. "My mother is going to get me this game!" one of them said. "I'm so lucky!!!" The other kid just sighed. "I'm really lucky,…
