Danganronpa on PlayStation Vita is a game series that flew under my radar earlier this year when the first game, Trigger Happy Havoc, released in February. After spending weeks playing through the sequel, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, it was such a great experience that I immediately picked up the original game to fill in the backstory of this thoroughly engaging narrative. If you’re an adult that enjoys captivating visual novels and own a PS Vita, then Danganronpa 2 is absolutely a must-play adventure.

If you are like me, a console gamer, every 5 or so years, you will be faced with a tough decision. When should you upgrade to the next generation of gaming consoles? Back in the earlier days of console gaming this was pretty obvious especially with the huge jumps in graphics and other related tech.

These days however, the reasons to upgrade aren’t quite as straight forward.

Publisher NIS America continues its tradition of bringing great Japanese role-playing game (JRPG) imports to Europe and North America with their latest release, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited. The game is a port of 2011’s Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten on PS3, but features a plethora of new goodies packed into the handheld version, including brand new content in the form of unique back story-driven scenarios, new spells, techniques, characters, and cameo appearances from past Disgaea favourites, as well as all the previous DLC from the PlayStation 3 version of the game already packed in. As a PS3 title, Disgaea 4 was robust to say the least.
