  1. Yeaaaaaaaah but like it's such a simple non-challenging rhythm game. lol, jk, totally blanked on those ones. Oh my bad! I had no clue. Sorry
  2. A large portion of rhythm games on the Vita are Japan only since the genre is alive and kicking over there, so you may have to dabble in some imports if you really want to. But some I can think of off the top of my head... Hatsune Miku Project Diva F/F 2nd/X IA/VT Utakumi 575 (BUT do be warned half of the gameplay revolves around choosing the correct lyrics as well... plenty of guides for helping, know plenty of non-speakers who have imported and subsequently platted this game) Bakumatsu Rock Ultra Soul [email protected] Must Songs Red/Blue Version (two games, only one platinum) Taiko no Tatsujin: V Version Miracle Girls Festival (exact same gameplay style as Miku - same developers) Dekamori Senran Kagura (Senran Kagura Bon Appetit in the west) Superbeat Xonic DJMAX Technika Tune All must be imported besides Senran Kagura, and the Mikus. Hope this helps
  3. Date-A-Live: Rinne Utopia: 7/10. Nice art and just about entertains but it's not a reading masterpiece by any means and the fanservice gets a bit much at times. Rinne and her route are by far the best though (too bad she's not a canon character).
  4. Seems you're well on track to the platinum hanami, お疲れ And cheers for the checklist, never thought of using the official site. This'll be vital for plucking off the last few modules. About 20 hours in at 30% Modules, it's a fair trek to getting them all but I won't deny that this platinum is shaping up to be a much more satisfying one than the two previous games. This is honestly the challenge many players have been asking for (and probably the closest we'll get to Extreme All Clear/Perfect).
  5. My copy arrived today, been glued to the Vita since. Brilliant game, I'm liking the new system even though it may be our downfall in terms of making the platinum a real grind. And I'm soooo glad there's so many amazing unknown songs in the game that will really bring attention to the producers that deserve the attention (ahem ahem Yi Er Fanclub, Kono Fuzaketa Subarashiki Sekai, Kunoichi demo Koi ga Shitai, and Streaming Heart to name a lovely few!), particularly when the game comes to the west. Though, considering the game system itself got such a major overhaul, I wouldn't be surprised if IA/VT's wild success is to blame for this
  6. Well that'd be a major middle finger to a large portion of the decade-long followers of this sequel. Really hope this isn't the case, since I'm sure as hell not buying an NX for it!
  7. English, Irish and any foreign languages I did over the years. Definitely felt like they were my forté. Biology also, purely out of personal interest. Technical Graphics was always enjoyable too.
  8. Also some new Project Diva X news! The Cute Medley is all Miku, all MitchieM songs (yuss) and includes the following songs: Eazy Dance FREELY TOMORROW Viva Happy Age Age Again BLOOMING THE IDOL (Aidoru wo Sakase) MitchieM is a godly producer with probably the best tuning skills, glad to see he got his own medley! Also, the songs LOL -lots of laugh- by mikumix and the new Satisfaction by kz livetune were revealed for the main game. Sauce
  9. Yesyesyesyesyesyesfuckyes. This alone is news enough. Oh, and Palette
  10. As mentioned, steer clear of visual novels and RPGs because if you care about the story, you won't be able to actually read it and enjoy the storytelling in the case of the former, and reading item/equipment/requirements will be ten times more of a hassle than it needs to be in the case of the latter. As such, that rules out a lot of games. But if you don't know any Japanese or don't intend to learn it, I generally recommend just sticking to the likes of rhythm games - IA/VT, Utakumi 575, Miracle Girls Festival, Bakumatsu Rock: Ultra Soul, Taiko no Tatsujin V Version. Some of these games have short visual novel storytelling sections in between songs but they're really quite irrelevant and don't detract from the rhythm game itself, which is thoroughly manageable despite not being able to read Japanese. Be wary of Utakumi though; it's a rhythm game as well as a haiku-building game where you must pick the correct words for the verses being sung - there's guides listing the correct answers on trophy sites with the intent of helping non-speakers, but just be aware that it's a bit more involved and *only slightly* less import-friendly than the others.
  11. I do agree, on the odd occasion they've had some pretty great deals and once or twice they were my only option (e.g. getting a physical copy of Resident Evil Remake). However, their pre-order prices and oftentimes their shipping have just been ridiculous, or so and I a few of my importing friends found. That said, they are my #1 for Japanese region PSN cards (admittedly only because the other card sellers I frequented jacked up their prices).
  12. Stop my younger self from wasting time on people who ended up not being worth the effort. Live and learn!
  13. Can't believe I've had Persona 4: Golden backlogged for so long. Think it's about time to dust off this classic!

      I know the feeling of not having much free time for gaming lol, lately it's been 2 hours per day at most.

      Exact same here man, life is too hectic nowadays to handle this backlog lmao.

  14. Top games of 2015: IA/VT Parfait ToHeart2: Dungeon Travelers Taiko no Tatsujin V Version Those were the only ones released in 2015 that I actually got around to playing, lol. The rest are deep within the backlog. Top upcoming games of 2016: Hatsune Miku Project Diva X Ys VIII Lacrimosa of Dana Danganronpa V3 Zero Escape 3 Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna 2016 is shaping up to be an amazing year of releases! My wallet won't be able to keep up, haha.
  15. Oh no, they're totally reliable as a company, they're just the worst choice for prices. Think of any game out there and you can bet the Play-Asia listing will be vastly more expensive than other online importing stores. There's simply far better choices for finding a better bargain.
  16. Personally I adored the game; it's very unique (whether that is a positive or negative thing is entirely down to your tastes), but it's definitely 50/50 whether you will enjoy it or not. You should give it a whirl; the is one of the shortest and easiest RPG plats out there and it's a very short game in general so you needn't spend too much time on it.
  17. Haha yeah I got that too, it's really nice, as was the Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio wallscroll. That aside, AmiAmi are definitely the king for pre-orders; being based in Japan gives them a competitive edge over Play-Asia and Nippon-Yasan. Yeah, the only difficulties required are Easy, Normal, Hard, Extreme, Hard (Full) and Extreme (Full).
  18. 2016 really is a great year for releases! Personally looking forward to... Persona 5 Final Fantasy XV Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Valkyria Chronicles Remaster NieR: Automata Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana Star Ocean 5 New Danganronpa V3 Finally my PS4 will be used properly this March!
  19. Only just saw this now but I'm glad I did. I write a lot as well and I love your style! Entertaining to read but with a little dry humour thrown in. Of course, congratulations on having such a varied selection of :platinum:s as well! Far Cry 2, Red Dead Redemption, GTA IV (with the MP having to be redone for the latter two!)... that is some god-tier patience you have, haha. Great work!
  20. For anyone still interested, this HD port was just released on the Japanese PS3 store as of 25/12, so it's now available on all three platforms. Same price. See here.
  21. A new rhythm game from Sega is being released sometime this winter which features characters from recent popular anime. Source A translation of the first paragraph of the article: The following is a list of the anime which will be included in the game (in the order of their broadcast in Japan): YuruYuri (2011) Haiyore! Nyaruko-san (2012) Vividred Operation (2013) Kiniro Mosaic (2013) Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova (2013) Tesagure! Bukatsumono (2013) Wake Up, Girls! (2014) GO! GO! 575 (2014) Nourin (2014) Mikakunin de Shinkoukei a.k.a. Engaged to the Unidentified (2014) Sega seem to be on a roll with rhythm games in Japan. Interesting that the girls from GO! GO! 575 are included in this game, they received their own game on the Vita a year ago called Utakumi 575, also made by Sega. It might look like they're cutting corners using the Project Diva engine but I don't mind since I love that engine Definitely going to pre-order this as soon as they go up on AmiAmi.
  22. Some modules and screenshots from the December update: Opening PV screenshots. The animation seems to be imitating the in-game graphics more now. The song used is 罪の名前 ('Name of the Crime') by supercell (ryo): Random screenshots: Now for modules and relating screenshots: More screenshots in the source: http://info.miku.sega.jp/5691
  23. Amazing that you have a book published! Mad props for such a special achievement I'll make a point of buying a paperback ASAP! Gotta support the PSNP family
  24. It's worrying that they actually listened to these delusional fools. I'm not really a fan of this franchise but it's still annoying to see this happen and the hassle it will bring western fans. These self-proclaimed 'feminists' could be worrying about sexism still present in places such as the Middle East, but no, instead they squander their energy on the real problem here - virtual tits! Pathetic.
