I have played quite a bit of Asphalt and it is a surprisingly fun game but it is just too damn easy, i mean you don't even need to corner if you don't want to. You can just bounce off the walls and still win! I loved the 1st Corpse party but as you say it is super bleak. Starts off all Japanese and cutsey then BAM students are hanging themselves in a toilet or getting buried alive by some weird ghost child thing. I still am yet to play through the 2nd one or Blood Drive and i have owned both of them for a while now. Currently i have about 20 Vita games on the go and am getting nowhere fast with all of them. Think i need to narrow it down to a couple and plow through them first.
