So....shopto reactivated their back order of Danganronpa V3 without telling me and sent me a copy anyways. The same day Grainger games managed to get me the last copy they have in the company. So now I have to copies. Typical.

Oh and shopto seem to have stock up on their ebay if anyone else needs a copy.

Thanks, this made me really happy. Often my PSP/PS1 reviews garner significantly less views than my Vita-native stuff (which in turn are miles less than my articles), so I often wonder if there's anyone out there actually enjoying this content. So it's lovely seeing messages like this!

(I wasn't going to stop doing it any time soon anyway though haha, it's nice to swap things up every now and again to play an old classic anyway - it's one of the things Vita is best at!)

New review finished, old game though that I'd hope all of you have played haha - Tearaway:

I played this originally in 2013 and revisited it to review it, and it's still as whimsical and charming as every. Truly one of the Vita's greats.

Can I get a Discord invite too?

Interesting article but why you didn't mention Valkyrie Drive as part of Marvelous' 2015 output for Vita?

In other news, some Xenon Valkyrie+ gameplay. Looking pretty great!

I finished my latest review (it makes me sad that I only have time for one review a week) - The Unfinished Swan on Vita:

https://kresnik258gaming.wordpress.c...d-swan-review/

It was pretty good.

So I finally got around to playing my first Ys game, and started with Ys 1/2 Chronicles.

And... wow. I absolutely -hate- the bump system. It doesn't help that I've probably killed 40 monsters and not only haven't leveled up, but haven't even enough for a shield yet. [i googled it to see if i'm missing something, and it looks like if i had spent my money on a ring instead of a sword/armor, i could have turned my 1k gold into 1.5 gold... but even after 40+ kills, I'm still near broke.

soooooooooooooooo. I'm done with this. I own almost every other Ys game, though [damn sales, backlog]... I know only some use the bump system [who thought that was a good idea?]

Which should I try next?

Oath in Felghana is my #1 favourite, but if you want 'modern' Ys then try VIII. The older games (Origin/Felghana) are very much solo adventures with challenging bosses and odd platforming; the newer games (Celceta/VIII) are party-based with lighting fast combat and are more about exploration.

In other news, Under Night In-Birth EXE:Late[ST] is coming February in both NA and EU:

I only finished the two on Vita (haven't gone far in Ys 7 on PSP). You can go Celceta then Dana (Ys VIII). Celceta is ok. Dana is fucking awesome.

IMO, Dana is the second best game Falcom has to offer. If its ending was not such a bullcrap, I think I may have put it on par with Sora no Kiseki.

As weird as it sounds, Dana is actually resembles (Sora no) Kiseki a bit. We may not get another one like Dana, since its setting is what made the Kiseki-like structure. It's not exactly heavy like Kiseki, but people were already crying in the Dana threads that they have to read sentences so LOL.

If you're playing it on the Vita version, you can see how much effort they put on the Vita version both in content and performance. I don't think I've ever seen a performance drop on it, compared to Tokyo no KisekiXanadu, where some fights and circumstances can get the FPS really damn low.

Also, Dana's music theme(s) is awesome. Though I wish the Vita theme they gave away had the "Dana" track on it instead of the "Lacrimosa of Dana" track. I'd prefer to not have a melancholic theme when booting up my Vita. ;_;

We need another Ys vs Kiseki just to get another game with Dana in it, since they don't really put the same character again unless you're named Adol or DoggyDogi. Ironically, Dogi is not usable in both Vita Ys games.
