I just noticed that Deep Discount has Wild ARMs 5 up for 33.99. I've never ordered a game from them and I think I remember some sort of problem concerning Twilight Princcess a while back (That may have been due to a price error or maybe it was before the changed over from Deep Discount DVD to just plain ol' Deep Disocunt though)....

The other question I had was regarding the 80 Page Artbook that its supposed to come with. I've only read about it on RPGFan and Amazon and Game Stop have no information regarding it. So I'm not sure if its packaged with the game like Persona 3, or if its a preorder bonus from other retailers.

Its a dang good price for the game at Deep Discount, but I'm a sucker for artbooks (especially if its true that it covers all 5 games in the series).

Anyone else have anything to add about the artbook, or maybe even just Deep Discount and their handling of games and/or preorders in general?

The entire first run of the game will include the artbook.

Sweet, pre-ordered at DD even though I hate them. I wasn't going to but $34 is a great price plus I'm a sucker for RPG freebies.

Thanks. The series has been a huge disappointment lately, but for this price, and the possible amount I can snag on ebay for it seems worth the dive.

why would anyone pay more on ebay since anyone who preorders this will get teh book. i dont see the book being in major demand


hell look at the disgaea 2 preorder limited to 1,000 art books . I dont think they even fetch that much anymore

wild arms crashed very fast to 10 buck so expect the same with part 5

If they didn't preorder it, how would they have the book? You make no sense.
I didn't tell you when I was selling it. The people that didn't preorder it will be my targets, obviously. I don't intend on selling to people that preordered the game, you're wildly assuming farfetched things, lol.

I simply said that a medicore game for $34 isn't that bad, because I can easily get that $34 back in the future, and then I won't feel guilty for induldging in something not worth induldging.

McNutsack was probably referring to the abomination that is Wild Arms 4.

And the search feature is back in this game, bitches! :lol:

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

no i mean is why would anyone want it. anyone who wants it could just preorder the game

unlike the disgaea 2 game what was limited to 1000 copies i dont think this book is limited like that. so if someone wants one wouldnt they just preorder it

then again i might just preorder it and try to dump off the book for around 13 what would net me the game for 20 : )


OUCh 41 bucks for the artbook and soundtrack. i remember when the book itself was fetching 60 hell i think i sold my soundtrack for 20 or 30 alone right when the game came out : )

so the soundtrack for 25 say
so the walkthough for 20

what nocked it down to game + magma + limited artbook for like 45
WOOOO I STINK

While I agree that the battle system is improved over Wild Arms 1-3, the puzzle elements (where each character has a specific ability to solve puzzles) was a favorite part of mine and they took it out of Wild Arms 4. The ability to equip every character with mediums was also a cool feature of Wild Arms 3 which they also took out. Personally, I enjoyed 3 the most of all and I've played them all.

does DD ship in box? I would assume the artbook would easily damage if they send it in a bubble mailer.

Well, I know plenty of people that 5 months from now will smack their heads and say "I really want WA5, I should've bought it when it came out!", cuz not everyone preorders games, dude, lol. Some people wait months, because they have other priorities.
I waited years before I bought some games, like Xenosaga and Valk Profile 2.

Better question!

Does deepdiscount charge right away, or as the game ships?
They havent subtracted anything from my account, but I want to be sure. I have a lot of bills to pay this week, and won't have WA5 money until next pay day.

Agreed, Asgardian. I'm getting these three as well, and while my wallet will feel the crunch, I don't even have the time for these ... but hooray for limited edition goodies!

And thanks for looking out for the series OP. God knows Wild Arms could use the help...

The game comes in a box which includes the DVD case and the art book, so there's no need to worry about the book getting damaged in shipping. This game looks like a great combination of the puzzles and world map of the earlier games and the combat system and production values of the excellent WA4.

Darn it! I had no intention of getting WA5, Growlanser: HoW and Persona 3 so soon but the special packaging/bonuses are too good for me to pass. I'll probably place orders in the next few days. These are the best deals, right?

P3 - Family video $42 - $5 newmemf5 coupon + $0.99 S&H = $38 shipped.
WA5 - Dee pDiscount $34 shipped.

What about Growlanser LE?
