Aside from the uneven animations, my only other complaint comes from the memo feature. I found it far easier just to keep notes on a pad of paper than attempting to write with my fingertip. This is not the best use of touch controls between the memo and the sometimes finicky puzzle inputs, but it is hardly a deal breaker either. Because at the heart of everything here however, is the narrative. I really cannot say enough good things about how well-written the characters and the stories are. I...
"Zero Time Dilemma has exactly what fans of the Zero Escape series expect - crazy characters, a twisting narrative, challenging puzzles, scientific theories, touching backstories, and mind-blowing plot twists. All in all, it is a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy, and an enjoyable ride from start to finish."

Root Double -Before Crime * After Days is a visual novel that is now available for the first time in English. This novel is both long and intense, with very detailed story arcs, with lots of pseudo-scientific explanations for most of the relevant phenomena, as well as some actual science mixed in for good measure.
Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune’s spiritual successor to Mega Man, is due for release soon, but it seems like people have lost interest in the title. The game was a smashing success on Kickstarter, making over $3.8 million, not including all the extra money it accumulated from Paypal after the campaign ended. It was a game that people were willing to spend a lot of money on in order for it to get released.
In truth Severed is an awesome game with some really great music, visuals and some systems you just do not see in most games. This makes it one of the most interesting PS Vita games to date conceptually. The one thing holding Severed back is its unwieldy control scheme. Perhaps it is just because the PlayStation Vita is so wide in design that not having that second hand on the opposite side makes it so uncomfortable after a while, but this one drawback is a somewhat serious one. However, this...
"MegaTagmension is the latest from the line of Hyperdimension Neptunia spin-offs, featuring the least “gifted” goddess this side of Gamindustri. MegaTagmension feels and plays quite similar to Action Unleashed, another spin-off from the same series, if you’ve played it before. If not, it has a very Dynasty Warrriors/Musou feel going for it during the story mode, and a sort of Monster Hunter style feeling for the online missions. Well then, places everyone, as we take a look at the anime styled..."
Brett from The Game Bolt: "When Severed was first announced at PSX in 2014 it quickly became one of my most anticipated games. Firstly, it is Drinkbox Studios’s next game following the excellent Guacamelee!, and is a PS Vita exclusive. Being on the Vita, I had hopes Drinkbox would utilize the system’s touchscreen for a unique experience. Secondly, Severed was advertised as a first person dungeon crawler with some RPG aspects added in, a farcry from their previous game."
Paranautical Activity was originally released on PC in 2013 and had a rocky start by being removed and re-listed on Steam under a different publisher. In 2015 it came out on PS4, Vita, and Xbox One, and finally arrived on the Wii U in 2016. With the retro graphics and minimal space requirements, the Wii U is a good match.
Ray Gigant is a new downloadable dungeon crawler/visual novel title for the PlayStation Vita. Within, a traditional anime story unfolds of world destruction, with the youth being the only ones who can save us from extinction. While rough in some spots, it still provides an entertaining experience by offering new takes on inventory management and resources.
The end result is that Ray Gigant manages to instill some new ideas into the dungeon crawling genre. Of course any time you do something new, there are some rough edges and they present here now and again, but the battle system is a lot of fun, exploration is far less of a grinding chore than we usually see in titles like this, and while the story itself never quite reaches 'great' status, the rest of the game's systems help to prop it up. If you have been on the fence about trying the genre ...
