As Valve never miss an excuse for a sale, that means that there's some great deals on games from Japanese developers and publishers.

Feature: Fourth wall breaking murder-bear

The joy of Danganronpa’s Monokuma Theatre

Villain monologues: forever a trope to make the eyes roll. I tend to skip through them as quickly as I can, waiting my inevitable escape. I don’t enjoy self-aware villain monologues either; they’re even worse because the villains know that they’re clichéd yet they do it anyway. I'd prefer it if they just immediately murdered me instead. Danganronpa, a visual novel/detective adventure in which a…

Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls bringing robobear-busting to PC

Both of Spike Chunsoft's Danganronpa wacky horror visual novels arrived on PC earlier this year, escaping through the portal from Consoleland, and now their spin-off is following too. Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls [official site] is quite different to those other two, mind. While they were murder mysteries with trapped students investigating killings incited by a robobear, Ultra Despair Girls is more of a…

Sun, Sea & Slaughter: Danganronpa 2 – Goodbye Despair

Danganronpa 2 [Steam page] is a game about students killing one another because a teddy bear tells them to. They're on an island rather than in a locked-down school building because this is a sequel. New game, new environment. If you've played the first game, you'll have a good idea of what to expect - lots of conversations, occasional investigation scenes when someone does a…
