    Finished the last story on Ys Origins yesterday. Cleared the arena on nightmare difficulty. I'll leave the rest for another time. Excellent game.

    Started a couple of PS+ games I have (of which, I seem to have a ton that I've never even heard of let alone started) and gave Uncanny Valley and Hue a try.

    Uncanny Valley feels like an unpolished port but an interesting concept. Kinda reminds me of Lone Survivor just not quite as good.

    Hue seems like a pretty slick puzzle platformer with an odd narrative. Runs really well though. Looking forward to playing through it, really impressed with the solid Vita port.

    Ok. That's Hue finished. Nice length for a puzzle platformer and the puzzles were excellent on the whole. I did find a problem with it though - on one of the very last puzzles part of the solution is to flip a switch which stops the moving platforms - but it also disables the killer lasers in the level. Problem is, the smaller screen on the Vita means you won't actually see the lasers shut off (as they aren't shown on screen at the time) basically making the puzzle needlessly annoying because its not as if this mechanic is used in any other level. Another level right at the end also suffers a similar issue with a trap hidden off screen above you which killed me a few times simply because its impossible to see coming unless you already know exactly what to do ahead of time... Otherwise its great. Can't be bothered to get hidden collectables though, can't stand the bloody things in 90% of games!

    Just finished The Bard's Tale Remastered and Resnarkled and Persona 4: Dancing All Night.

    The Bard's Tale is the best Diablo-like game I've played in the Vita. It's way better than Dungeon Hunter Alliance, Silent Hill: Book of Memories, and Fantasy Hero: Unsigned Legacy. You only travel alone but you can summon people/creatures to act as party members. The dialogues are very funny. The 3 endings are hilarious!

    I wasn't expecting myself to like Persona 4: Dancing All night. The story made me cringe but the gameplay and music were very good. Now I want to play Persona 4: Golden again!

    Now playing Toukiden 2. The open world is a nice change of pace! The game feels different from other hunting games because of the exploration. I'm loving it so far.

    Yeah, I quite liked Hue too. And I agree about those final few puzzles, very tricky with some elements you only discover/figure out by getting caught out by them...

    Nearly finished God of War - I'm enjoying it more and more as I go through :)

    I did decide to give Touch My Katamari, however it caused my Vita to crash, forcing a hard-reset. By the time I was up and running again, the moment had passed...

    I am playing Killzone Mercenary, which is frustratingly great, and slogging through Code;Realize. Although Code;Realize has an interesting plot it hasn't capture my attention yet, and I am already at the sixth chapter.

    Gah - I've spent the entirety of my 45 minute train journey this morning repeatedly attempting (and failing) to get past a spinning blade section in God of War (Blades of Hades?) :eek:

    It shouldn't be that hard, but it's so unforgiving - you have to balance across various beams, as well as dodging spinning blades, but one mistake and it's game over - no checkpoint, so if you fail you're back at the beginning - also, while Kratos will grab the beam as he falls in other parts of the game, giving you a few seconds to save yourself, you have no such luxury here.

    What makes it even harder, is the 'dynamic camera' - you can't control it yourself and it's not static, so it's frequently panning around as you traverse a beam, meaning that often you can't see exactly where Kratos is relative to the beam.

    It's maddening :mad:

    Ah yes, that bit in GOW. Yeah, no one has a good word to say about it. If its any consolation I'm fairly certain your close to the end of the game!

    Anyway, played more Uncanny Valley. Its ok. It tries to do some interesting things with the story but kinda falls flat, its not as clever as how Home does the story, but nowhere near as good gameplay wise as Lone Survivor.

    Done with Uncanny Valley now. Its was ok I guess. Story was nothing to write home about (it doesn't try to make all that much sense while also not being all that interesting to begin with so I stopped caring pretty quick) and the gameplay is mediocre at best. Stick with Lone Survivor is my recommendation, its just better in every way.

    Anyway, moved onto Drive Girls because the concept is so silly I had to try it. I like it. Its nice brainless fun wrapped in a silly story about girls who fight bugs and transform into cars. Really need a lockon target for fighting the super fast enemies though, else they'll be a real pain going forward. Looks nice and runs nice as well. Only other game I could really compare this to is Transformers Devastation, since that also features characters that transform and fight bugs (ok, Insecticons).

    The game itself is pretty good, but that section was incredibly annoying (I cleared it almost straight away last night!) and some aspects of the game haven't aged well at all. I think I'm just about to get to the infamous spinning blades cliff climb, which I recall was equally annoying...

    I am about half way through Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc. Will move on to no 2 once I have done.
    A very good story with some very strange characters - very well written and clever how it weaves their back story in and the motives are very good.

    God of War finished :D

    I have tried to my Touch My Katamari a few times, but it's crashed at different points every time I've played it (I had to do the tutorial twice). I'll give it another go, but don't have the patience for that...

    I have also (finally) started Chaos;Child - good start so far :)

    Played more of Drive Girls, managed to clear the first 17 chapters. Getting the hang of the best way in tackling the larger enemies. Still got some cheap encounters here and there, but its good brainless fun!

    Finished Toukiden 2. It was very addictive. The open world sets it apart from other hunting games in the Vita. It really made a different feel for the game. Sometimes it even felt like an MMORPG.

    Now going to play Yomawari: Midnight Shadows.

    Almost done with Drive Girls now. Cleared all the story missions and only have one online mission left. Usually I hate online stuff, but I'll give this game a pass as it lets you solo the missions, which are pretty darn tough but still very possible when you know how. Only missions that suck are the ones where you have to fight lots of certain late game enemies (anything Venom...) The dual boss fights have actually been kinda fun!

    Finished Utawarerumono Mask of Deception few days ago, I was somewhere at 60% of the game so I "casually" finished it by playing the rest of it for 17+ hours in a row (note to myself, don't do that anymore).

    Without spoiling, music and art are great and I liked the story a lot, but after such a long VN I take a break before even thinking of playing the second game that is even longer.

    Reason it took me so long (started it somewhere in july last year :eek: ) is that I can't play such games when everything is disturbing me, even a phone call can make me stop playing it for a few days so lesson learned.

    After that adventure I started Persona 4 Dancing All Night, didn't play it that much yet but I like the music it has :)

    Well I just picked up most of my Vita games in the last week or so, however the Vita game I have played the most is Project DIVA X since that is one of the few games I had already. I have been using the Vita mainly to play my PS4 remotely lol.

    I just started it too, haven’t played too much but it’s like nothing I’ve played before so I’m not quite sure what to make of it

    Finished Yomawari: Midnight Shadows. It is the scariest Vita game I've played. I was feeling uneasy from start to finish. The town is scary, the spirits are scary, and there are a lot of WTF moments. But the most terrifying part is the limited number of saves you can do lol.

    Now playing Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess.

    I've been getting back into Dungeon Travelers 2! Maaaan, the last time I played that was in September 2016! It was a little intimidating getting back into it, but now I'm up and running again! Also started Earth Defense Force 2. Incredibly odd game for modern standards, even just the menus. It's really awesome in short bursts though!

    Just finished Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess. I found it innovative and addicting. Making elaborate traps was fun and there's a lot of traps to choose from. The story is also lengthy because there's 2 campaigns to finish.

    Now playing Valkyria Revolution. I'm just in the first chapter and I'm liking the gameplay so far. It's an action RPG with tactical elements. It's way different from the gameplay of Valkyria Chronicles but fun on it's own way.

    Decided to stop wasting time on Danganronpa, I’m just not into it. Might go back to Axiom Verge, got stuck on it a while ago and never went back to it

    Really?! How far in are you? All 3 of the main DanganRonpa games are fantastic, and games I would recommend without hesitation!

    Equally, I'm up to chapter 3 of Chaos;Child - it's great stuff, although VN's do make me sleepy :D
