Falling for this girl might be hazardous to your health...

Vincent likes his girlfriend. Katherine's pretty, smart, and successful. Trouble is, she's starting to talk about long-term commitment, something Vincent's spent his entire life avoiding. Since romantic complications are the last thing he wants to deal with, Vincent meets his friends for their regular night of drinks. Little does he know that he's about to be blindsided by a beautiful, seductive, irresistible freight train named Catherine.

Suddenly, he's hung over in bed next to the most beautiful woman he's ever seen, unsure about the previous night's events. Was it just making out, he wonders, or did something more serious happen between them? Should he tell Katherine? Will he ever see Catherine again? Vincent's about to find that a stumble on the staircase of love can turn into a horrific, fatal plummet...

Vincent's waking fears, doubts, pressures, and growing guilt about commitment and fidelity now follow him into his dreams, manifesting as horribly disfigured monsters and a ticking clock.

The player must navigate Vincent through heavy moral decisions. As in real life, hardly anything is black and white. Someone's going to get hurt!

The Nightmare of Your Dreams-Under the watch of producer Katsura Hashino, acclaimed director of Persona 3 and Persona 4, famed character artist Shigenori Soejima and master composer Shoji Meguro create sights and sounds unlike anything else.

Local versus and co‐op multiplayer modes, in addition to leader boards, ensure that the many thrills and horrors of racing through twisted stages can be enjoyed by more than one player.

A weird and fascinating game.

Super price.

I have it on disc, but for the convenience of not having to swap discs... should I? Am I that lazy?

Yes.

SUPERHOT FROM ME! I waited for soooooo long for this to drop from £39.99 back in the day and it was still that price when the X1 launched. Great find OP!

Amazing, thanks!

but this wasn't in the list...

Missed it on the 360 but always fancied picking it up. Good price

Worth a punt? I know its only 2 quid but im not a fan of obscure jap games. Tried Persona because people rave about it but really disliked it.

Cheers op. One I've been curious about since it came out. For £2-odd worth a punt.

Absolutely. Amazing game!

I couldn't get into it but definitely worth having a go of at that price just to try something different

It's a brilliantly bizarre game but far from for everyone- think I paid something similar for my ps3 a few years back & its a steal at that price for me!

Great price

It was also on PS+ back in the day but I didn't play it at the time (even though I owned it) will pick up now I think.

Got this with PS plus back in the day, and it is certainly 100% not for everybody, i personally did not like it, very monotonous puzzles and the frustration factor is way off the scale, but i won't vote it down because some will like it and at that price they are getting a bargain.

No time to play it at the moment and I'm skeptical as to whether I'll enjoy it but at £2 it's worth a punt.

Great find!

Epic game this. Heat added!

Was playing this so much I was pullin' blocks in my sleep oO

Very mature themes for an adult over relationships - loyalty, settling down and, well, cheating. Kick-ass addictive, octane puzzles too!

Really great game. For those on the fence, go for it!

been waiting for this to actually go on sale in the UK since the dawn of time,
so thank you, times lots

Great for the price.

Online purchase not working for me so hoping it's the same price on the console store.

Wow they've actually reduced this? I was looking just yesterday and only the US/Canada versions were reduced! Guess I'll have to pick this up now...

Nope, only way is to grab it from an Xbox 360 if you want to use credit

It's not a sale price apparently, it's just priced at £2.24 - they've possibly forgotten to trigger the sale on it or something

This is both obscure and very, very Japanese, so, no, I wouldn't. It's a brutally challenging puzzle game interspersed with surreal cut scenes and talking sheep.

Voted hot because no game has ever made me swear like it

Really enjoyed this. Challenging puzzle game wrapped in a surprisingly mature story (don't play with your partner as it asks you some questions that will be pretty awkward).

Word of advice: this game is very difficult and it's made worse by the developers randomly deciding to rename the difficulties when it was translated. Hard mode in Japanese is called Normal in this, Normal is called easy etc. Don't be afraid to put the game in easy mode (there's no penalty and it's the real 'normal') as the game is still very challenging. It gives you a prompt to lower the difficulty if you die enough times anyway.

Such a great game, I would love to play this again. Very difficult but totally worth it, was not expecting the ending I got lol.

It is. I've had my eye on this since it went on sale for the US last month and the usual UK price is £14.99

Finishing on 'Normal' remains one of my proudest gaming achievements. Bloody ridiculous.
