Both Danganronpa games are easily the best games I've played this year, with the second outdoing the first even by those high standards. They easily justify the price of admission for a Vita.
I'm not really sure how happy I am with this article, since I'm not sure if it encapsulates how much I love them. Part of this is due to the spoiler-y nature of the series, so it's difficult to discuss specific things, and they have to be described with generalities. I also really love the soundtracks, and my limited musical vocabulary makes it difficult to express how fantastic it is. Masafumi Takada did great work on Killer7 and No More Heroes, but these games have some of the best music that video games have to offer.
Disclaimer: it's also not 100% complete! I'll be finishing it (probably) tomorrow. Just note that page 3 doesn't work since it's not done yet!
Also to make up for my own disappointment in my article, I've included a small gallery at the end of the Danganronpa 2 spoiler section that illustrates some of the more obscure video game references. Someone on Twitter pointed out a list of all of the cultural references, though it's in Japanese, so I don't know if there are any changes, and even that was missing some. Chiaki apparently brings up F-Zero and Beraboman/Bravoman, and I know she mentions Jake Hunter in a trial, but I didn't screencap it. There are a few times where it seems like she's referencing something but I can't figure out what. Like this!
If anyone wants to provide any screens to flesh this part of the article out, please do!
Finally, I don't know how many people here have played it, but this is a series that works best if you avoid spoilers. This is serious business - anyone spoiling anything (beyond what's mentioned in the article i.e. the first two chapters of each game) will be temp banned. Use those spoiler tags if you want to discuss!
