      You were not joking about the glory that is Velocity, Pete. Good find. Hideously intuitive, which is a great aspect. That Vita analog stick makes for fantastic arcade-style controlling.

      The game was quite excellent, I wasn’t able to beat it without the use of a walkthrough. While I usually would just give up when games did that to me, the story did keep me going, and even with walkthrough, that did not take away any of the haunting horror that this game had.

      I really loved this game.

      @asatiir I was very fond of the fact that the “bad endings” were mini-stories in their own right. Some of them went on for a very long time — and at least a couple of them lull you into a false sense of security, making you think that you’ve nailed it… only to dash your hopes against the rocks in a rather bloody manner.

      An excellent game. I really hope we see more.

      Yes but you would spend like 20-30 minutes into the game with the bad ending activated. I’m a fan of consequence in video games but to find out you were “wrong” in your decision far beyond retrying can be irritating at some points, especially in the later and longer chapters.

      Hmm, somewhat reminds me of the When They Cry game, although I never played it. This has sparked my interest but I don’t own a vita yet.
