Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, you may have noticed the number of stories slowing down here. Time moves on, but I'll always keep posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or YT channel, please consider clicking an ad to help reach my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

History: Legends of War, a footnote in the UK Vita chart

Ouch! Not only is an early Vita title back at No.1 but its the cheapest boxed-game in Vita-dom. As if that's not a pretty grim indicator of Vita releases and sales overall, a decent new game, Slitherine's Legends of War only manages to make in at No. 20. Still it'll all be better in a couple of weeks :).

Then again, having played Virtua Tennis for a bit recently, you have to see the appeal, loads of fun mini-games, compelling world tour mode with online and plenty of trophies, it is pretty much the perfect portable title.

To be fair, with a £40+ price tag (UPDATE: Now down to £33, that was quick), many gamers might be waiting until the price drops a bit for this one, and it hasn't exactly been visible from a marketing perspective . Still, the very similar Patton game on the PSP was pretty good and this a rare breed of the Vita (video here), so please pick it up, when you think the price is right.
