[REVIEW][GAME] Persona 4: Dancing All Night PSVITA

Game: Persona 4: Dancing All Night
Platform: PSVita
Genre: Visual Novel, Rhythm
Purchase: Retail, PSN
EN release year: 2015
EN Publisher: ATLUS [official website]
Opening theme: Dance! 


A few months after the murder events was solved in Persona 4, Rise Kujikawa has decided to make a comeback in the entertainment industry. With the help of the Investigation Team to be her backup dancers, Yu and co. make their way to Takura Productions where they rehearsed for the upcoming Love Meet Bonds Festival. Upon meeting the star guests of the LMB Festival Kanamin Kitchen, the sudden disappearance of the group shed light to an eerie rumor that has been circulating amongst fans. Those who view the LMB website at midnight would go to the "other side" and to never wake up again. What secret event sparked this rumor in the first place, and by watching the LMB website at midnight, is this the same as entering the Shadow World from the tv? -- The Warping Penguin


I guess you could say this game has been on my to play list since day 1 of its announcement. I adored P4G; the remake for Vita of Persona 4 on the Playstation 2. With the release of P4Dance, we get to relive and enjoy the characters from the P4 series once again!

There are 2 modes in P4Dance:
1/ Story mode (dance is on Easy)
2/ Free time mode (Easy/Medium/Hard/All Night)

[REVIEW][GAME] Ys: Memories of Celceta PSVITA

Game: Ys: Memories of Celceta
Platform: PSVita
Genre: Action, RPG, Adventure
Purchase: Retail, PSN
EN release year: 2014
EN Publisher: NIS America [official website]
Opening theme: Ys Celceta: Sea of Trees


“Who...who am I...?”

Unable to remember even his own name, Adol Christin awakens to find himself in a city called Casnan, on the eastern end of the Ispani. It is here that he meets Duren, an information dealer who claims to have encountered him previously. Evidently, Adol was last seen heading into the Great Forest of Celceta, a massive expanse of woodland filled with such danger that even the mighty Romun Army fears to tread within.

What happened to Adol inside the Great Forest, and how did he lose his memories? The only way to find out is to step back into the foreboding woods and brave its dangers once more. But Adol will need to have his wits about him, or his second trip into the Great Forest may cost him more than just his past... -- Nihon Falcom


Once again I bought Ys: Memories of Celceta after pure conjecture upon seeing a short gameplay of it on Youtube. I wanted something RPG where I can maneuver my characters around a field whilst fighting monsters along the way. To boot, Ys: Memories of Celceta gave me that, on top of its beautiful soundtrack.

Ys: Memories of Celceta is the first Ys game I've played from the Ys series. Apparently this is the 3rd game based in Celceta, with two previous Ys game beforehand. Despite knowing that, I still thoroughly enjoyed playing Memories of Celceta as it pretty much fulfilled my cravings of a basic RPG.

So first up, choose what difficulty mode you want! (Easy > Nightmare)
You are introduced to your character, Adol Christin.
Adol waddles into town suffering from amnesia.
Your big ol' buddy Duren comes along and is shocked beyond words!
You encounter something horrible and was tasked to map the forest of Celceta.
Your journey begins!
You encounter various people.
You fight evil monsters.
You encounter various secrets.

I've completed by BA degree!

So last Thursday (29th Oct 15) I have completed my final assignment for my Bachelor of Arts degree. Now, I'm just awaiting graduation next April!


I also started the game Freedom Wars, but found the controls are bit too difficult so I put that down and started Ys: Memories of Celceta. Hopefully I can finish this game (or try to get halfway through) before Persona 4 Dance comes out next Friday, so I can review it!

Hooray for PSVita games!

[REVIEW][GAME] Lost Dimension PSVITA

Game: Lost Dimension
Platform: PS3, PSVita
Genre: Action, RPG, Visual Novel
Purchase: Retail, PSN
EN release year: 2015
EN Publisher: Atlus [official website]
Opening theme: Lost Dimension by fripSide


To subdue the threat The End poses to the entire planet, several countries create a special forces group called SEALED, which is comprised of eleven psychics with superhuman abilities. Each soldier has their own talents and skillsets to use in combat, which can be expanded after gaining enough experience in the field. Bonds of friendship will form amongst the members of SEALED, but be mindful of which allies to keep close, as The End mandates the player must begin eliminating teammates. Make sure to accuse the right teammate of being a traitor though, once the final battle with The End begins any remaining traitors will fight the main character alongside him. - ATLUS


I bought Lost Dimension on a whim after I viewed the Japanese gameplay of it on youtube. I thought the entire style was appealing, and a little bit different to what I usually play.

You play as Sho, the main character of the series.
You play a short tutorial to understand how the game works.
You are introduced to other characters and their abilities within the game.
You build relationships (camaraderie) within your teammates through conversation logs.
You find the traitor and move on.

I should start my assignment today, and see whether i can finish my individual philosophy presentation, then i can focus on the group one.
