    I had a lot of interest in VD and when I finaly got it I was very happy... till I started.

    Fighting system is good, story is very meh, and character roster is weak and to be fair I had a lot of fun with all 4 SK games (mostly with the Vita ones) and I still sometimes replay both SK games on the Vita and I platinum both, but VD is just plain boring to me after playing SK and maybe if I played them the other way around it would be better.

    Played some Arcana Hearts Love 3 Max.... But couldn't get into it much and got bored. Played through story with each character but couldn't beat the final boss with each one... So I gave up!

    Currently playing through story mode of For Honor and once that's done will start playing either:

    Guacamelee or Velocity 2x on the Vita :)

    Darkest Dungeon
    I have been playing this game for way too long, I love it and I hate it. I love it because its incredibly awesome. I hate it because its so damn difficult. I can't put it down, yet when I do I vow to play a different game when I come back to my Vita. However everytime I turn my Vita on I say "just one quick game of Darkest Dungeon". -2 Hours later I am no better off. I hate the game, but I love it. The storyline in the game is about trying to piece together a mystery of a dungeon that exists under a manor you inherit from the previous owner who went mad. The joke is on us the player as playing this game slowly makes you go mad. Addicting, -like crack!

    Played through Ninja Senki DX, absolutely loved it. Simple but slick gameplay, appropriate length for its style, and extremely good design. I'll definitely be going back to this regularly and aiming for a no-death run.

    Also have had about 3 sessions on Soldner X2 so far. Was hoping to be surprised by this one, but I kinda felt like it wasn't going to be too great going in, and while its slightly better than I imagined, it still overall feels pretty bad. Music is fantastic though!

    No death run is pretty possible, I'd recommend doing the perfect challenges on each level (on the challenge mode) first, this will let you learn the levels inside out. Its especially useful for the boss levels so that you can learn the patterns of the bosses really well. When I managed my no death run I managed to perfect the final boss! I can't do the score/time attack runs though, they require startling accuracy that I don't currently possess (no death mode is way easier in comparison!)

    I know I'm very late to the party but just discovered little big planet on my 'sons' vita! Done about four hours over the last two evenings it's so clever/addictive can't stop playing! Got it off eBay before Christmas for less than £3

    Don't worry about it! It was one of the first games I bought for the Vita (even before I bought the machine) and I still haven't played it!! I'm definitely going to install it tonight. I'm trying to play one game per night that I haven't played yet, just so they're not sitting there.

    Still playing The Unfinished Swan & I really do love it indeed. Would thoroughly enjoy having a physical version of it on my shelf.

    I forgot how much I adored Sound Shapes and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Can anyone recommend any good community levels for the former?

    Gotten further into Steins Gate. The story continues to intrigue me and has taken another interesting turn. I definitely can't wait to see where it goes next!

    Turn your brain off. It distracts from mindless entertainment. :D

    I decided to pick up Yomawari again. Firstly for a bit of a retrospective also to play Hotl NikQ which I never finished when I first played it to see how both held up and I'm very happy to say I really had a great time playing both games but I picked up on a few more points I didn't mention last time.

    Firstly the presentation for both is gorgeous and the 2D pop art design really compliments the story telling nature of games like this which are clearly inspired by the likes of RPG Maker horror games and Earthbound. The enemy design and animation in both games looks amazing and fitting within their respective worlds. I definitely can't accuse Nippon Ichi of not making an effort with either as it has the kind of polish I don't think you could get using only RPG maker.

    In terms of story Yomawari is incredibly powerful and even though you may not understand all of it, the game does such an amazing job making you care about it's main character guiding her to safety and hoping that she can find what she's looking for. The game has really intricate world building too which has secrets and nick nack's all over the place telling you what might've happened in this town but if you want to play it just for the main story you can totally do that too. HotL NikQ on the other hand is all about fragmented story telling and unlike Yomawari the game wants you to find all the small pieces to put together Malon's story and it's a really emotional one when all of it comes together.

    In terms of controls Yomawari's are absolutely straight forward and easy to follow whereas HotL NikQ has an array of options from using the touch screen which I immediately turned off so I could use the opposing analogue sticks instead. Those with a gorgeous touch needn't worry about finger prints.

    In terms of game-play both games have elements of puzzle solving which involves a fair amount of trial and error, well actually an exceptional amount of trial and error, well actually let's just say if both these games had a tag line it would be "If at first you don't succeed! Die, Die, Die again". In HotL NikQ's case it's a result of some incredibly strict movement and timing throughout many of the obstacles in the game however in HotL NikQ's case dying is pretty much the point of the game and learning how to move forward. In Yomawari's case it'll very often be because you have absolutely no idea how a lot of these enemies work and in some cases (specifically Chapter V in the Warehouse) you could argue it borders on unfair so if you're going to play the game I'd highly recommend reading the digital guide to look up on enemy behaviours though it won't tell you where the enemies are they should at least be easier to avoid if you come across them.

    After having played both I can say both games are absolutely worth checking out especially if you love abstract world building and story telling of games like Yume Nikki and the like but if you really want to go for 100% platinum be ready to have your patience tested and tempered because neither game pulls any punches when going for 100% completion.
