Faith had introduced me to an exciting world of magic and monsters and exploring said world in Smoke and Mirrors keeps me wanting more. The case just keeps getting more interesting, I just hope Telltale doesn't keep us waiting long for Episode 3.
Overall Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc is a fantastic game with a gripping story, great characters and remarkable gameplay. While the game has its ups and downs, its drive towards optimism in the face of desolate and violent conditions is what makes it an enthralling experience. Danganronpa is – dare I say it – my favorite Visual Novel on the PS Vita yet, and this is coming from a huge VLR fan. Also one more thing, Monokuma is a Grade-A douchebag, just wanted to get that out there.
A Crooked Mile is a great Adventure game episode on its own, but I would consider it weaker than the first two episodes. We made very little progress in this episode and I hope Telltale has something special planned in the next two episodes. I still recommend you guys grabbing it if you don't have the season pass yet.
In conclusion, Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars is a neat little entry in the JRPG market, which – while not exactly revolutionary – manages to distance itself from other turn-based RPGs through the introduction of new gameplay mechanics like Star Children and Classmating. These mechanics might not necessarily be new but they are built on the preexisting concepts in a JRPG and are surprising fun for the most part.
The Walking Dead Season 2 rectifies this situation. Not only the loading times and random stutters are reduced, the touch and physical controls now seamlessly switch places on the fly. There is no need to manually select them. If you want to use touch, just touch the screen, similarly, if you want to use the physical controls, just press any button. It is really a neat feature and TellTale Games have done a great job integrating it for the PS Vita in Season 2. This definitely makes the PS Vita version of The Walking Dead Season 2, the definitive version of the game.
'A House Divided' is another great episode for Season 2 that focuses on the relationship between characters and helps in explaining the background for some of them. It also sets up the ground for a great Episode 3 with its end of episode teaser.
The build up in this episode is excellent although I'm not sure the finale will be able to live up to the expectations it has set. We still don't know as much as we expected to by the end of episode 4. I'm just hoping Telltale gives the so far brilliant series a proper sendoff in the fifth episode. In Sheep's Clothing is a slower episode than what many have been expecting from the series but you'll never find a dull moment and always moving your analog stick to progress further in the story.

Cry Wolf is the perfect finisher to end the fantastic series. The ending did not only leave me perfectly satisfied but had me replay the prior episodes to look for clues and answers. As a series The Wolf Among Us is defiantly in my favorites list. I would recommend all gamers, not just adventure game fans to try the game, it converted me and will hopefully convert you too. I just hope somehow in the future Telltale comes back and gives us a season two or even a spinoff in the same universe.
Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is a game that perfectly compliments the PS Vita. After playing games such as Persona 4 Golden and VLR, longer RPGs are just a much better experience on portable consoles. The same case is with Disgaea 4, for me even though I was playing through the game a second time, I never felt bored. I played the game whenever I wanted, sometimes while waiting for class in 10-20 minute sessions to quickly level up a character or for hours on the weekend. Trust me when I say this, Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is one of the best games on the PS Vita and if you’re even remotely interested in RPGs you owe it to yourself to check it out.
