[Vita RPG Review] Ys: Memories of Celceta

Unable to remember even his own name, Adol Christin awakens to find himself in a city called Casnan, on the eastern end of the Ispani. It is here that he meets Duren, an information dealer who claims to have encountered him previously. Evidently, Adol was last seen heading into the Great Forest of Celceta, a massive expanse of woodland filled with such danger that even the mighty Romun Army fears to tread within.

What happened to Adol inside the Great Forest, and how did he lose his memories? The only way to find out is to step back into the foreboding woods and brave its dangers once more. But Adol will need to have his wits about him, or his second trip into the Great Forest may cost him more than just his past…

Ys: Memories of Celceta is an Action RPG in which you follow amnesiac Ys series hero Adol Christin in his quest to recover his memories. This game was originally released in Japan under the name “Ys: Foliage Ocean in Celceta.”

Playing Ys: Memories of Celceta was my first time in a Ys game, although a few people had already told me that they were great RPGs. I had the chance to review this game, and I’m glad to tell you that it is a perfect addition for the PlayStation Vita RPG library, and you should not hesitate to pick it up… even if you haven’t played a Ys game beforehand!

[PSP/Vita Review] Corpse Party: Book of Shadows

The first Corpse Party game chronicled the struggles of seven high school classmates, one little sister and one teacher who all got trapped in a cursed elementary school that shouldn’t even exist, and were assaulted mercilessly therein by malevolent spirits. It was a game riddled with twists, turns and “wrong ends” that culminated in haunting, brutal death scenes, and its conclusion left many questions unanswered and more than a few loose threads untied (while at least one other was tied perhaps a bit too tightly)…

[Vita Review] Orgarhythm

orgarhythm ps vita review

Orgarhythm is essentially a battle of brothers or of light and dark Gods. You must rise up against your brother with your rhythm yielding legion of warriors using music and beats as your commands.

As part rhythm game, part strategy and part RTS, Orgarythm sounds like the ultimate clash of genres but this is only in theory and not execution.

The very first level has the best music that I’ve experienced in the entire game thus far. When the march of death starts, you have to tap one of three commands with the beat and button glow the best you can to get a good timing rating. There are three sets of commands you must choose and get them all perfect or your warriors will actually level down.
