So probably the biggest title for Vita this year came out last week. It's called Freedom Wars and is really fun.
Anyone else here have it or plan to get it?
Basically you are a prisoner or 'sinner' born with a one million year prison sentence. The world is running outta resources, so every useless person born who adds to the over population is slammed with a one million year sentence to server their Panopticon (which is like a safe haven within your country that's operated like its Big Brother).
So the game plays similar to Monster Hunter, Soul Sacrifice, God Eater etc. in that you fight giant monsters (in this case called Abductors) with a variety of weapons from swords to guns. You also have a thorn wrapped around your arm which adds a similar mechanic like Just Cause 2.
However it's much more than just killing giant monsters, there are loads of different game types and things to do.
Right now New Zealand is coming 39th out of however many countries around the world (Japan excluded for now).
It's pretty good considering there have only been like 130 sign up for the NZ Panopticon. 130 is probably the total number of Vita owners in NZ too.
Graphics are nice too, and im loving the weapons:
The fun thing about fight abductors is you can cut off their limbs:
You can dock their arms, legs, hands, and any weapons like missile pods they might have attached to their body.
You spend alot of time in your jail cell where you can craft weapons and take on all your missions:
All in all, this is fast becoming my favorite game. Any chance we have any players here?
