The Caligula Effect: Overdose is coming to the PS4 in 2019. I would ask you if you played the original game on the PS Vita, but my guess is that many of us didn’t. In this case, not playing it nets you better visuals with more content. Maybe we should stop playing games in order to play games? Is FOMO something we should really fear after all?
Your fears, hopes, and dreams all play a part in the world and story. Imagine a world that sucks. Now, imagine you can enter a digital world created by a vocaloid named µ (pronounced Mu) that lets you escape that sucky other world. If you want to be rich and famous, you are. If you want to be loved by women or men, you are better looking and an object of obsession. All of your dreams are realized.
If this sounds too good to be true, it is. Despite having everything you could want, there is a dark undertone that keeps seeping out of the cracks in this world. Sometimes, you are attacked by people who were your friends, and a sinister group may be trying to pull the strings of power from the shadows. It’s time to get back to reality through any means. (If that sounds like your cup of tea, you can check out the anime on Crunchyroll by clicking here. I will also drop a story trailer for the game at the very bottom of the article.)
If you missed it the first time, this sounds like the version to grab. The Caligula Effect: Overdose adds a lot of new content. You will have a new female protagonist, a new musician, new students, and changes to the UI. There will be a limited edition that will add the soundtrack, a hardcover art book, and a poster.
The Caligula Effect: Overdose will send you back to reality early 2019.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
