There hasn't been much coming out on home consoles to interest me as of late, so I've been getting back in touch with my inner F-chan and catching up on my portable pile of shame.
17.) Touch My Katamari (Vita)
It's Katamari with no frills. I do appreciate that the first six DLC levels are all free. Seeing the King rendered in full 3D is about as creepy as it sounds. Definitely a tired formula at this point, although I liked that the game seemed to acknowledge this in the storyline. It'll be hard to play the older games without being able to squish and stretch the katamari to get through tight spots. Neither bad nor great.
18.) Riviera: The Promised Land (PSP)
I wish I hadn't waited so long to play this. Aside from the incredibly slow-going battles, this was a surprisingly charming game. Yggdra Union and Knights in the Nightmare are pretty cheap on PSN, so I think I'll check those out too.
19.) Ys I & II Chronicles (PSP)
I played the Eternal versions of these games to death on PC, so I had no real interest in playing them again. I was so pleased with XSeed localizing them that I bought a physical copy and later the digital variant for my Vita, though. Finally got around to playing through it over the weekend. I could beat these games in my sleep now, but I always end up getting into them regardless. Some surprisingly mellow arrangements of classic songs in Ys II.
20.) Ys Seven (PSP)
Got to the last dungeon in this one many months ago and then just stopped for some reason. Finally finished it off. To be honest, I actually think it's a little too lengthy for an Ys game. Still, the gameplay is super-quick and swapping characters on the fly to deal with certain kinds of enemies is quite fun. Thankfully, it would appear the upcoming remake of IV is retaining this system.
