I love Visual Novels so tend to pick them up whenever i can. Norn9 has been on my mind of late after watching the anime, the others were ones i’ve hummed and ahhed about on different occassions. Especially Code Realize, i saw some art for that once that made me cringe, but a few people reccomended it so….

A game in the vein of Etrian Odyssey and Demon Gaze, AKA: First Person Dungeon Crawler. So yeah, was a no brainer to pick this one up!

Atelier Escha & Logy takes place four years after the events of Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, albeit in a land far away.

Depending on how players accomplish each of the missions, the outcome of the game will be affected.

FEATURES Two paths. One goal. Players may choose to experience the story from either Escha’s or Logy’sperspective. Escha’s tale focuses on an alchemist’s daily life. Logy’s tale, has a more dramatic story and follows the traditional RPG experience.
Already completed this at launch on my PS3, but as a bonified Atelier fan i have to have it on my Vita as well. This game was a first, giving you two perspectives each with a unique playstyle. This meant the game has more replayability!
- The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel £19:99 down from £29:99 (PS3 Version)
At Thors Military Academy, Erebonia’s best and brightest learn everything from the art of war to the liberal arts. First-year Rean Schwarzer learns that he’s been selected as a member of Class VII, which controversially includes both nobles and commoners. But they’ll need to deal with more than just class warfare—they’ll need to safeguard their country from those who would plunge it into chaos.
Part of the Trails series, ‘nough said really. I picked up the PS3 version since Q already did the Vita version, but i’m already regretting it, i prefer my Vita!!
- Corpse Party: Blood Drive £14:99 down from £34:99
While some members of Kisaragi Academy’s class 2-9 returned from their trip to the hellish, otherworldly elementary school known as Heavenly Host, many did not.
Class president Ayumi Shinozaki attempted to use an ancient tome called the Book of Shadows to resurrect her deceased friends once before, but only compounded the tragedy in the process. And now the book has been lost.
Or has it? When a spiritual photograph turns up, suggesting the Book of Shadows may now reside in the tattered remains of Heavenly Host, Ayumi becomes obsessed with finding it so she can make one last attempt to set things right.
Picking up two months after Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, Corpse Party: Blood Drive serves as the definitive conclusion to the long-running Heavenly Host story arc. Featuring dynamic lighting, 3D sound, highly detailed environments and a variety of new gameplay systems, this is a Japanese horror experience not to be missed!
I actually bought the collectors edition of this at launch, but the demoness i live with has stolen the game and wont give it back so i replaced it 😀
- Omega Quintet £11:99 down from £44:99 (PS4)
In this hybrid RPG/idol simulation, five idols wield Sound Weapons against the dark forces of the world. Build up an arsenal of attacks, get the crowd’s pulse racing with extraordinary skills, and then get them on their feet with a live performance!
1. Every fight is a performance, so give the audience what they want! Enter “Concert Mode” and get boosts from your music, as well as be able to fill up your Voltage Gauge faster to perform special skills.
2. Customize your idols’ outfits, accessories, hair, and more! But watch out – hits from enemies can cause a “Costume Break”, which will compromise their outfits and leave them vulnerable to more damage!
3. Sing your enemies right into the grave with the “Harmonics” system! Create deadly super chains of attacks, using each idol’s skill in the right order to keep the pain coming!
4. Create performances for your idols and share them! Choreograph each routine and use the PlayStation®4 Camera to project yourself into the performance!
Genuinely got no idea why i bought this, something about it being a hybrid RPG/Idol Sim just made it sound hillarious, so I picked it up. Also this was the deal of the day over £30 off.
- The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD £35:99 Wii U
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is a critically acclaimed masterpiece, set in a massive world bursting with life-but also shadow. A dark figure from the Twilight Realm has invaded the world of light. As Link, a farmhand turned cursed beast, you’ll join forces with the impish Midna, the Hyrule Resistance, and trusted (albeit unusual) allies to survive a quest that will take you to the farthest corners of Hyrule and beyond… to the Twilight Realm. This epic, emotional adventure is now on the Wii U console.
So a mate kept harping on about this game, so I picked it up to shut him up. And because i’ve never actually played a Zelda game a figured it was time!
Same excellent buys. If you enjoy visual novels then I am sure you will love Steins;Gate.
A few people have said that, which is why i picked it up. Working on Norn9 and Corpse Party at the minute, SteinsGate is next on the list
