    I keep thinking of buying one of those, if anything, just for the cover art!

    Aaaaand, bought!

    I would add God Eater 2 to the list. I don't understand anything but it is really fun to play the game. The game also runs perfectly on PlayStation TV.

    True but the game will come in Q2 to both NA and PAL regions.

    God Eater 2 isn't coming to NA and EU, you mean God Eater 2: Rage Burst. It is a better version of the game with more content and stuff like that. I only had to pay 8,23€ for the game so it is still a good investment if you are a collector.

    I like the yellow, reminds me of the Gamecube Player's Choice boxes which I also liked.

    I actually read that the PlayStation The Best version of Bullet Girls has a reversible cover with the normal cover, so if they also did that with IA/VT Colorful...! :)

    I have. Its fairly easy to play even with the language barrier, menu's are easy enough to figure out and gameplay wise its very easy to pick up and play.

    That was what I expected when I ordered the game a couple of hours ago on eBay. I had to pay about $20 for the game. Could you please take a picture of the whole box (front, back and side)? That would be awesome :)

    Kancolle Kai. Very easy to navigate, super addictive, and some menus are in English. Plus there are guides online.

    Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni is awesome but I think it's more of a playable inbetween text since there is a lot of it. But it's a REALLY great game action-wise!! And boob wise :)

    Also I looked up
    Utakumi575 and it seems like you'd have to know Japanese to play it, unless those are just lyrics on the screen? (But I doubt it because it seems interactive)

    You sure Kancolle Kai is easy to play?



    Looks too much text-heavy to me........

    I bought it the day it came out and have played it a LOT since then and I don't know any Japanese, so yes, I do think it's playable. There are no VN elements to it, it's just warfare. Plus if anyone has issues there is this guide. kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/KanColle_Kai But it's your list, and I've bought games based on it, so I trust your judgement. I do admit there are somethings I don't understand, like the non-weapon items, but that's it...

    Actually its a VN game with some music parts ;) I've played the game pretty much to the end (can't do a couple of the hardest songs on the hardest difficulties with the best ranks) and its not that import friendly in my opinion. You'll be lost on the story if your not able to read Japanese. If you have knowledge of the manga and the time period you can muddle through it (that's what I did, its fairly self explanatory if somewhat long winded at times) and once you finish the game with all the endings (and do all the optional episodes) you'll have access to all the songs. The songs themsevles are really import friendly, as they require next to no knowledge of the language to enjoy. I liked the music choices, but compared to some of the other music games on the Vita its hard to recommend as the gameplay of the music sections is not as good as say Project Diva, DJ Max or Superbeat and if you don't want to plod through the VN side of things you won't have access to all the songs.

    Skullgirls 2nd Encore

    Added into a new group called Multi-language, along with Dokuro, Ogarythm and Hotline Miami.

    Am I missing any in that group?

    Gameplay wise you'll be fine, its a Dynasty Warriors style game so its very simple to understand. Game basically revolves around going to the blip on the map and beating up all the enemies until you can progress to the next area.

    I've heard the performance/frame rate on the Vita version though is atrocious so I've not picked it up yet, I'm just going by the PS3 version I played which is ace.
