I haven't played Victory, but the script was completely re-written for Re:Birth and it seemed a lot more charming than obnoxious compared to the original. There's still a lot of fluff, but most of it made me smile more often than cringe. I like that the localization team made some effort to rework the Japanese gaming references into stuff folks outside of Japan would get. The further breaking of the fourth wall (all the characters are aware they're going through a plot they've already gone through) makes it more enjoyable as well.

This game is so much better than Hyperdimension Neptunia. If only HDN could be like this. It feels a lot like playing HDN Victory but almost everything is better. So far this feels like a 7/10 where HDN Victory was a 5/10 at best. The only thing I liked more with HDN was the fan service which this game have less of and I am one of those who likes that.

If you have a Vita, I recommend giving Neptunia Re:Birth a try. I thought Hyperdimension Neptunia was barely playable garbage and can't get enough of Re:Birth.

Welcome to 2015!

Or as I like to call it: The year of avoiding any Persona 5 news to go in completely fresh!

CASE AND POINT (on the left field writing of Senran)/ One story arc presents a female ninja who's goal is to become a world class pervert by fondling other female ninja's breasts. <-- This is actually presented as a serious motivation of the character without ever feeling like they are trying to tell some pervy joke. Once you sit back and realize you've taken this character seriously within the context of the narrative you begin to realize how clever they were in their way of doing things here. In short, they somehow make the most shallow and distateful content magically interesting. I will now resound my earlier statements of I CAN"T BELIEVE I LIKE THIS FREAKIN' GAME.

I haven't had much chance to play the game myself, but I can only assume this is Katsuragi's story. Which just further proves my stance: Katsuragi shinobi is best shinobi.

Are you playing the GBA or PS2 version of CoM? Just curious.

1.5 Remix. First played it on the GBA, this is my first time playing the Re: version.

Made it to chapter 5 last night in my second playthrough of Neptunia Rebirth. Now I'm at the scary point where I started missing stuff during my last playthrough so I'm going significantly slower at this point to make sure I unlock all the bonus dungeons in time to get their respective improvement plans.

I also finally made my way through Wonderland in Kingdom Hearts: CoM Reverse/Rebirth. That area was so unfair since the deck you're given has no 0 cards and the highest attack card is 5. Meanwhile, you're dealing with enemies that have no problem using 6 cards. and a boss that tends to go on an endless string of 7 and 8 cards. Ended up using Feeble Darkness on all the rooms and waited to get lucky on the boss fight.

1. Guacamelee! - Picked this up in one of the early-year Steam sales and it was easily my favorite Metroidvania game I've played in quite a while. On that note, however, the developer can make something else now instead of yet another version of this game.

2. Hyperdimension Neptunia: Re:Birth 1 - The greatest game I've ever played? Of course not. But this game is such a successful remake that it goes beyond deserving "Most Improved" this year. I loved the game so much I started playing the game a second time the minute the end credits stopped rolling. This is something I pretty much never do. And this all after thinking the original Hyperdimension Neptunia was a piece of barely playable garbage.

3. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII - I know I'm very alone in this opinion, but I really liked FFXIII and FFXIII-2 and couldn't stand Lightning Returns. The stat-building system was annoying and made it easy to get stuck, the costume system was kind of fun, but I didn't really like many of the costumes. The story was lackluster until the last few hours, and then the last twist in the final moments was eye-rolling levels of dumb.


#1. Metallia - The Witch and the Hundred Knight was not a very good game. The gameplay was all over the place, the story falls apart in the second half, and the difficulty spike for the post-game content was extremely off-putting. But one redeeming factor for me--and, from general consensus, me alone--was Metallia. She was cruel and vile and a despicable person, but it was all essentially an act because "That's what witches do." There was compassion underneath all her facades, but it was also obscured by the fact she was simply an arrogant kid trying to be a grown-up.

I realize this is all probably just my own twisted interpretation of a poorly made character, but she still managed to be my favorite VG character perhaps of all time.

#2. Tales of Xillia 2 - Only because of how much I liked FFXIII and XIII-2 did this not make it to biggest disappointment. I've already talked about why I disliked this game as much as it's predecessor in the Tales thread, but I truly did expect this one to be an improvemt after the first game, but what I got was mangled character arcs and more obnoxious fights.

#3. 100% Orange Juice - Another Steam Sale discovery, I've heard good things about this in the past but hadn't picked it up until recently. It's a great little adorable board game that's simple to pick up and hard to stop playing.

#4. Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd - As good as the first, and in some ways even better. All that really needs to be said is that I've spent $144 on this game and haven't regretted one penny for one second.

#5. Hyrule Warriors - I can't say this game is one of my favorites this year because I'm not very good at it, but it's still crazy fun to play and has  a MASSIVE amount of content, especially with the reasonably priced DLC packs.

Thinking of spending some of my PSN credit on Dangonronpa, but first I figured I'd consult the forum to find out how much gameplay is in the game. I'm not really a fan of VN's, but I will say that something like 999 has just enough gameplay to keep me interested.

Finished Hyperdimension Neptunia Re:Birth 1 this morning. Got the Normal Ending, then immediately began my second playthrough and have already worked my way through Chapter 1. The New Game + system lets you start over with everything: Character levels, equipment, inventory, credits, remake system, everything. So going back through the game is super fast. Feels really good too to go back and completely wipe the floor with the enemies who are supposed to beat you mercilessly.

End credits were pretty fantastic, too. They featured all the key moments in the game as if they were part of a 32-bit RPG.

Screwed up waiting too long to unlock one of the dungeons in Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth and now I can't get the improvement plans for it. I'm at the final dungeon now, though, so maybe I'll just level up a bit and then beat the game and if I feel like it down the line work on getting everything in a New Game +

With games, I run into the exact opposite problem a lot. I'll love a game to death, but when looking at it objectively I couldn't tell you what I like about it because all the elements are things that I normally wouldn't like.

Got Smash Bros. for Christmas, took me all of 10 minutes to decide the 8 player thing turns the game into an unplayable mess. Not from lag or anything, just the stages are way too small for how much is going on in those matches. I also REALLY miss the unlock gallery from Brawl. Already regretting asking for this one.

I'm not mad about it, but I do think it kind of further undermines the Vita, considering one of the few things it has going for it is as a haven for niche JRPGs.

My store got burglarized last night. Meanwhile, they still want us to spend all week open until 11pm but won't give us enough payroll to have more than one person working past 8pm.
