    VA-11 HALL-A was awesome, short but awesome.

    Great music, a must to play with headphones.

    Next on the list SAO: Hollow Realization.

    Still playing a mix of Zen Pinball 2 and matches of Killzone: Mercenary when I'm out and about.

    We started and platinum'ed Death Mark this last week. It was pretty neat! Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a nice horror adventure game. I say adventure rather than visual novel, because it really feels more like a text-heavy point and click than really just a visual novel with some light exploration elements. It's pretty neat, and we played it at night with only some atmospheric lights on. Neither of us is good with horror, and it set a great mood. It's not a jump-scare game (though it has few light moments), but there's some unsettling stuff in there.

    Also platinum'ed Tetra's Escape recently, which I still recommend as a simple puzzler for a budget price. There's still two worlds to go (which is weird for a puzzler, but I get the trophy-hunter aimed business model) and I'm looking forward to finishing it.

    Almost forgot, but finished Iconoclasts recently! Definitely a great game and 100% worth a physical purchase if you haven't gotten it yet. I'm personally a little in doubt, as budget's a little tighter now and I didn't get Bastion either, which I personally liked a little more on the Vita than Iconoclasts. Both are neat, though. What I have with Iconoclasts, though, is that I didn't even pay for it (you know, PS+), but I'll consider that more when I actually have the money.

    And today I'll start Tokyo Xanadu! It's been a good Christmas vacation :D

    A bit of a double post, but there's new stuff the next day!

    So I played Tokyo Xanadu yesterday, and man! That feels like a high quality game! I just finished the first dungeon (so didn't do a ton) but it looks and plays great. The combat is very fluid, and I'm surprised the Vita can handle such an awesome action-RPG dungeon crawler! Makes me a little sad about some similar games that were on the brink of breaking down with less intricate combat (I'm looking at you, Bullet Girls: Phantasia), but it's good that we got this still!

    Started and plat'ed Persona 5 Dancing over the last week. A nice fun short music game. Not as good as DJMax but thanks to being based on P5 its got a solid soundtrack and character interactions. P3 Dancing is on its way to me now... I'll finally get through Salt and Sanctuary first though.

    Started on 'Dungeon Travellers 2' a while back. I haven't been big on these 1st person dungeon crawlers, outside of Shining in the Darkness' back on the megadrive some 20+ years ago, but I had hoped that the fanservice, if nothing else, would draw me in. To be honest, I still don't enjoy these games all that much. The story and dialog is terrible, and I now find myself skipping the conversations. The gameplay isn't anything out of the ordinary, and there isn't anything particularly fun to do outside of the dungeon crawling and battling.

    Currently playing the hardest difficulty of 'Bullet Girls Phantasia' now. It's a good time waster, seeing as 3rd person shooters are possibly my fav genre, and there are surprisingly few of them on the Vita.

    Gave the Catherine demo a shot. Love it, I was concerned about the game running not so great on the Vita but the first couple of stages ran delightfully well. Definitely a game that is well suited for handheld play so I'll be importing this next month.

    Dude, where is this Catherine demo that you speak of? Is it a Vita demo? If so, which region are you getting it from? Also, is the import version going to have English subtitles at the very least?

    The demo is on the Japan PSN store under demos. Took me a few tries to find the thing. And no, its only Japanese text/audio. No English in this one.

    For anyone considering to play Tokyo Xanadu, do yourself a favour and pick hard difficulty immediately. Sadly, as opposed to my beloved DRPGs there's no increase in the rewards (item rarity/money/exp are all the same) but it's so much more fun. On normal difficulty (which I typically choose for action games) it's a pretty mindless hack and slash with only a minimum of engagement for bosses (okay, I'll admit, one was kind of tough, but only kind of). On hard difficulty the small fry is still fairly easy, though for the heftier ones you definitely need to learn their attack patterns (or well, pay attention to the enemy, it's very obvious when they're about to attack and if you pay some attention, you can avoid them the first time) but the bosses are where it's at! Already the boss in chapter 3 had me in a bind, with me being destroyed completely twice over! I had to pay some attention to what it was doing and I realized my mistake (which was pretty big), but even knowing that it wasn't too easy!

    It's really interesting how playing the same game on different difficulties can give off such a different feel.

    Still though, I always love boosts in rewards for higher difficulties XD
