Shame its a mind-numbingly boring game. Visuals are stunning, but controls are terrible, most levels follow almost exactly the same sequence, and the controls tend to make the bosses a little difficult.
Maybe connecting up a bluetooth controller (PS3?) would improve things, but as it stands I'd be loathe to recommend the game to anyone.
I've only occasionally seen a Vega on the shelf with power, and even then they had nothing installed to demonstrate its abilities, compared to the iPad and Xooms on show with plenty of alluring applications.
I was very definitely lucky with mine - only bought a couple of weeks back, dropped into our local Currys, they had one in stock .....
Agreed on the THD games - I've got Ripride, Bang Bang Racing, Samurai II, Guerilla Bob, My First Train Set - all look stunning.
And only because it looks funky - Fishbowl Photo Gallery.
Its also pretty funky using video playback to demonstrate - some videos of the kids taken on my Nokia N8 (which really does have one of the best cameras on a mobile), played on the Vega look absolutley stunning. Vivid colours, smooth motion.
Advent themselves don't appear to have done much in the way of development, but as it stands everyone could stop releasing roms and it wouldn't matter that much - sure, it owuld be nice to always have the latest releases, but the Vega is already good enough for most uses - its not lacking anything obvious in the hardware stakes.
Maybe a 1280x800 screen (with gorilla glass?), thinner, more ram, HC, GPS ..... and keep the price the same. Hehe, gotta dream.
I'd reckon its more like to be an official HC release, or something along those lines - remember that Advent aren't actually a manufacturer as such, they just rebrand/mildly mod other peoples hardware (be it laptops, desktops or tablets).
Hope its an official release, although as it stands with the Corvus5 roms, the Vega is a cracking little bit of kit.
