    jp's Borderlands 2 (VITA)

    [April 18, 2016 05:14:31 PM]
    I played at home, on the couch, for a few hours and while the experience is better than on the bus (didn't get dizzy), the UI elements really are too small for me to read adequately. In fact some of the icons are unintelligible for me - and I thus have no idea what I'm supposed to do for some things (swipe or tap on the left half of the screen?). I guess I'm also a bit spoiled by Destiny's shooting/aiming because, while I did get more used to the controls here, they just don't work quite as smoothly as I'd like.

    I'm still impressed that it looks like this is the full and complete Borderlands 2 experience on a handheld, it just isn't playable well enough for me, so I'm moving on to something different.

    Wow, it really is Borderlands on a handheld. I'm only barely out of the "tutorial" level and I'm both impressed and annoyed. Impressed because it seems like it really is the entire game with really high production values. But the annoying part? Two things:

    a. I'm obviously getting old because I got a headache from playing because the text is a wee bit too small for me to read without straining. This is annoying because there's a fair amount of text you need to read (weapon stats and so on)

    b. Tapping the back of the Vita triggers the hand-to-hand attack. This interferes with the way I like to hold the vita, so I'm always punching when I don't want to. I should probably check to see if there are config options I can mess around with. Maybe it's on by default but I can switch it off?
