      Great to see Hot Shots Golf make it to PS3! was worried it would stay on Vita forever

    • joe

      im intrigued and thanks for no spoilers πŸ™‚

    • You mean Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame? Yeah, I like that they are remaking the 1993 classic.

      No problem Joe, I think I’ll find out what mobile games are free each week more often. I download most of them myself too, so it’s quite handy. πŸ™‚

    • Cow-slinging FTW! πŸ™‚

    • Sounds like you got your HANDS FULL! Hahaha! It’s a joke, get it? Because you’re holding a controller all the time if you’re playing all those games. I love puns. πŸ˜‰

    • Golf fan in da house! Hope you’re enjoying the game I briefly tried the Vita demo, pretty fun if you’re a golf fanatic. πŸ™‚

    • Pikmin 3 is utterly charming for sure! I normally don’t like console strategy games much (I’m a die-hard PC RTS player since the 90’s), yet it’s so ridiculously charming with those awwwdorable Pikmin that you really get into it (I got an early copy from Nintendo in case you were wondering). It’s definitely kept me enjoying the story mode, I need to wait till the weekend to find someone for the local co-op mode, so I can’t vouch for that yet. First EarthBound, now Pikmin 3, Nintendo’s seems to be pulling out all the stops with these interesting games this month. πŸ™‚
