Also, I noticed at a couple Gamestops there was a B2G1 free sale just on PS2 and PSP used games. Not sure if that's everywhere, though.


Mine had the PS2 B2G1 last week, but most of the good stuff had already been picked. I didn't see one for PSP but didn't really look, could have missed it.

Geez... took them long enough to announce. Now I wish I hadn't imported the CE since Xseed will likely dish out a better CE than the European one.

It's a pretty good game but probably the worst of the OR games.


I know right. While I typically like the EU CEs better since this a Wii game I would have definitely preferred a NA copy.

If anybody bought the Pandora's Tower European CE and is looking to sell it, I'd be interested in the steelbook. Looking for the steelbook for The Last Story too.

You may want to keep an eye out on eBay for these. I bought one around the EU release date and they were going for about $15 shipped, and remained at that price for a while. Same goes for The Last Story steelbook. Very cheap considering the usual steelbook prices. It doesn't look like there are any up for this price anymore, but it may be worth it to check from time to time.

Near Halloween, they had a 50% off sale, making it $9.99 to download off PSN. Not sure if that was just for Plus members or not though.

It was for everyone. I got it for $10 and didn't have Plus.

Well they can take my money for the ENG version. I have the JP version and for a fighting game from an independent developer, i was impressed. Its def along the lines of any JP Anime fighter like Arcana Heart. The combos are pretty simple, supers are flashy, and the characters models and movements are done really well. Its worth the 5 bucks if you like games like Arcana Heart.

The game is on indefinite hiatus. NIS is focusing on other projects at the moment (specifically God & Fate Revolution Paradox and Disgaea D2) and put Witch and the 100 Knights on the backburner.

Since the game won't even be worked on further until April at the absolute earliest, it probably won't be released in Japan until mid-late this year. 2014 is a realistic release date in the US.

Bah that sucks. But I guess it is a blessing as that's one game I won't have to worry about getting right now. I can focus on Dragon's Crown!

Pre-order SMT: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers at select retailers and get an arranged soundtrack CD.

Basically pre-order it from GameStop or Amazon if you're in the US to get it.

Anyone know of any deals for Fire Emblem? Gonna go ahead and grab it when it comes out, just looking for the best price I can get.

Should have Ni No Kuni here by Monday. USPS doesn't have any more tracking info than philly for yesterday. My guide for the game is also claiming a Saturday arrival which is odd because I never had UPS ship to me on Saturday but I am hopeful so I can start playing this game on Sunday (waiting to get my guide in before I start)

Yes, and probably not. Try the Etrian Odyssey 4 demo coming in February.

The only thing you could consider a "deal" is the artbook Gamestop is supposed to provide with preordered copies, but AFAIK, you can't preorder it anymore, at least not in-store. I could be wrong, though.
