Don't buy online and stick with B&M store for collectors edition


This. If you guys are so intent about not having a single ding, why not just go instore? Its the main reason I stopped ordering C.E's online unless it was the last possible chance to get it.

I finally got to open my Mercenary Edition package and the condition is pretty good. Some dings in two corners but no biggie.

I lied about buying it on day one but I'm interested in Half Minute Hero 2 even though I've only played the demo of the first one.

If it got a UMD release like the first one I'd day-1 it.

I've had it for a while now. It's certainly one of the better Harvest Moon titles. The first month is really really slow, but once they introduce the blueprint system things get a lot more interesting.

Same here. Too many late-release PSP RPGs have been download-only. I understand why Sony is doing it that way, but I still won't buy them.

Not really a big discount but good price point for those unsure about D3 v D4:

Disgaea 4 (standard) is now $20 at Newegg and Amazon. Was $23-25 couple of days ago, hopefully this will be the regular price.

I'd then have to buy a PS3! I really should have one, but buying one now seems silly when next-gen should hit in a couple to a few years and I'd prefer sinking $200+ into a console to have it for years and years.

This will probably get lost in the waves of Black Friday but:

The Last Story Is Xseed’s Most Successful Title To Date; Now Available For $30

Amazon had it at about MSRP last night and they finally reflected the new MSRP today.

Amazon

This is the standalone game.

Any leftover copies at various retailers with the artbook will be reduced to $40.

The BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend Limited Edition has dropped to $19.99 (random fluctuations in my Cart down to 19.75 but it's not showing on the product page) at Amazon for both PS3 and 360.

Isomergames (Amazon-fulfilled) has it for $19.57 on PS3 only: http://www.amazon.co...d=ATVPDKIKX0DER

The extras seem cool, but I'd wait for it to go on sale. Most of Xseed's limited editions for PSP were available for $20/$30 at some point, and Amazon still has over 1000 of these. Maybe watch an unboxing video to see if you'd care about the extra stuff at all?

Ragnarok Odyssey's Mercenary Edition is how you do special editions right. For just $10 more than the price of the game you get a soundtrack, guide/art book and some playing cards. It's easily worth it.

I don't consider QTEs gameplay. This "game" is about as deep as the mini games on a disney DVD.

I was thinking of picking up the Persona 4 Arena game for the PS3 (now at $29 on Amazon) and when I went to Target a week ago, I saw that it came bundled with a CD soundtrack. Does anyone know if the Amazon version comes with the soundtrack? Usually they mention if there is a soundtrack included, but don't see anything listed.

Doesn't appear to have been posted yet: Record of Agarest War 2 Limited Edition is now $29.99 on Amazon.
http://www.amazon.co..._sim_01_03_t_lh

Lots of people have complained of crushed boxes due to Amazon shipping it in a bubble mailer. I ordered along with BlazBlue: Continuum Shift EXTEND Limited Edition, so I'm hoping that's enough to force Amazon to use a box.
