Tomba! (and other PSOne games) now up for Vita download

Better late than never!

Everything's finally going to be okay, guys! Sony has updated the PS Vita's PlayStation Store to include several more PSOne Classics, the most important one being Tomba!. The titles are available to download on your Vita right now. 

When Sony allowed access to the PSOne Classics this week, North America started with a pitiful nine games for direct download. It seems that Sony's slowly rolling out more as the days go buy, starting with this larger update. A few key titles such as Crash, Spyro, Metal Gear Solid, and non-VII Final Fantasy titles are still missing. Still, I have my Tomba! at last!

Here's the current list of games available to buy and download direct to Vita, as verified on my own lil' system:

  • Alundra
  • Arc the Lad
  • Arc the Lad II
  • Championship Bass
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Extreme Pinball
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grandia
  • Hi-Octane
  • Hot Shots Gold
  • Jet Moto
  • Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
  • Magic Carpet
  • Medal of Honor
  • Medal of Honor Underground
  • Nuclear Strike
  • Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus
  • Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
  • Popular: The Beginning
  • Rayman
  • Rayman 2: The Great Escape
  • R4 Ridge Racer Type 4
  • SimCity 2000
  • Societ Strike
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken
  • Tekken 2
  • Theme Hospital
  • Rainbow Six
  • Tomb Raider
  • Tomba!
  • Twisted Metal 2
  • Vanguard Bandits
  • Wild Arms
  • Wing Commander IV

Still not a huge amount, but it's at least a step forward, which is better than nothing. Now that Tomba! is finally available for PS Vita download, I am going to buy it. You see how that works, Sony? You give me a thing to purchase, and purchase it I shall! 

Videogames, guys!

Remember Black? That PS2 era shooter from Criterion? It has a REALLY good orchestral soundtrack. I'm gonna throw that in my MGSV iDroid. Why not.

Traded in a bunch of old Star Trek novels and other books at a used bookstore. Made $10 and got Tori Amos' "Strange Little Girls" album along with it. They made me take the William Shatner novels back. Smart clerks.

MGS V review: When using a character other than Big Boss for missions, the intro credits still say, "starring Punished 'Venom' Snake." Sloppy work, Kojima - no wonder Konami dumped you. 0/10.

Grim Fandango......some real good sruff here. As soon as I complete it (vita version, of course) will probably see about a write up. Not perfect, but theres some good stuff here. Glad it got brought back from obsolescence hell.

Just started playing Hyrule Warriors again. Man is that game fun. A bit mindless at times granted, but fun nonetheless.

I ate vanilla ice cream and didn't put on any chocolate syrup. Now wondering if that was racist whitewashing #thanksjed.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."

I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.
