        I believe it means "warriors" in English. It basically refers to Dynasty Warriors style gameplay. You versus thousands of enemies at once via hack n' slash style controls.

        The_stats_guy, you need to go watch Fate Unlimited Blade Works and Fate/Zero anime right now. Marathon that shit. And yeah I agree with Retro8bit it is probably 95% the fact it is the Fate universe and 5% people who like musou/Dynasty Warrior type games.

        Shadowman - I know, once the bug has you it has you! :X

        Zodaex - Let me know how the game is, haven't had a chance to play Hotline Miami, love the look of it though. :)

        Renegade - Which One Piece game? I have Pirate Warriors 1 & 3, Unlimited World Red and Burning Blood. Maybe we could play sometime. :)

        Hotline miami is an incredible game. Really fast and difficult, like some levels probably died 50+ times trying, but the speed stops you getting p!ssed off and turning it off. You'll know when you play

        Nice! Oh by the way, if you're getting Persona 4 its very heavily story based. The first 2 to 3 hours of the game are mostly just cutscenes, giving you only a few brief things to do inbetween. After that is when the game gets good. :)

        It's a real good game. A small bummer that your building progress from world to world gets wiped, but overall, it's a real solid game. I can recommend it if anyone is interested in picking the title up digitally or physically.

        Even with visual downgrades and slower than 30fps framerate.... I agree! I would love to play Persona 5 Golden on the Vita! Even if it meant I'd have to play the game at PSP game resolution 480X272 and at only 20fps! As long as the full game was there on the physical game card? Compromises or not! Count me in! :)

        Game is awesome so far, showcases nicely what the Vita can do! Controls and atmosphere are spot on, it really feels like a true Resident Evil game! Wish the AI partner was a tad smarter, but that's been a common issue with the series. I could just imagine what playing this game on a camping trip would be like, terrifying!
