The Daily Hotness: Glory days

Over 100 PSOne Classics are reportedly coming to Vita next week, which has me stoked. I love my Vita and while there are still newer games out for it I haven’t picked up yet, I’m excited to scroll through the Classics list, indulge in some mild nostalgia and impulse buy a bunch of games. Here’s hoping Vagrant Story and Legend of Dragoon make the cut. Have been having an urge to play them and though I have the discs for both, having them on the Vita, portable, might give me the impetus to get into one while I wait for Persona 4: The Golden with increasing impatience. 

Cat pictured because it’s super cute and sort of looks like me.
