I contributed without hesitation.  It looks like something I'll enjoy, and by contributing now we get to play our part in unlocking some of the awesome stretch goals.


I would love to, if they extended a physical copy to AT LEAST the Vita.

anyone snag muramasa? there was no soundtrack. GS guys said its in the LE box. Is that true? what about those of you that got the reg edition?

 

seems odd for a pre order to be in the box

Thinking about ordering Soul Hackers for $30 from Best Buy. How do they ship them? There aren't any near me but I can select site to store - are they shipped with better packaging to the store? I just don't want to get a crushed box in a bubble mailer.

Yes.

 

It is in the LE box, yes. It was considered something of a "complete" edition (adding it as a pointless bonus), though normal people can get it with the normal game. 

 

Mine was sealed with my copy of the game, which caused the soundtrack case to get damaged (it is paper after all).

I got a regular Muramasa from Newegg two days ago, and they included the soundtrack CD in the bubble mailer with my game.  Would have easily bought the LE of this game had it included an artbook like Dragon's Crown will, but sadly they opted for other extras that really didn't excite me much.  I already have a Hori Face Cover for my Vita (and LOVE it), so I didn't need another one, and the velvet bag wasn't all that exciting.

Not certain if this is the right thread for Dragon's Crown preorders, but newegg just sent me an email that they cancelled my preorder for that game along with the $10 promo code I've had it preordered under for about a year now.  Anyone else get this?  Wondering if they're exacting retribution for me returning Project X Zone or if they are just being newegg...

EDIT: Or maybe they automatically cancel pre-orders after a full year from date of pre-order?  Hmmm...

Most likely NE being NE. However, if you got it at the old $30 dollar price, then that might be why.

Shit, I need to follow this thread more closely.  I missed out on ordering the Time and Eternity LE.


Also, if I were to pre-order the Tales of Xillia CE, do you think the figure would sell for a decent amount?  I'm only interested in the artbook and soundtrack.

I saw this on joystiq the other day

 

There'a a JRPG coming out next year called Soul Saga, its inspired by alot of older PSOne era RPGs like final fantasy, breath of fire, persona etc. It currently has a kickstarter going and has reached its main goal, now its just a matter of hitting all of its stretch goals!

 

its releasing digitally on the PS4/Vita, WiiU, and PC and you can secure a copy by backing it here 

http://www.kickstart...assics?ref=live

 

I pledged in for a ps4/vita and wiiU copy!

 

also heres a video of how the basic combat will be but its still in pre-alpha

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=hSFSP67eYo4

 

I've never used kickstarter before, so I'm not sure if this is the norm. But holy that is a lot of pledge tiers offered I have no idea what to start with. Anyone care to share what tier/option they picked?

I did base $15 for PS4 version.  Can start there and adjust if you want extra goodies.

Am I the only one looking forward to getting the Time and Eternity LE? The art looks good. The story can't be too bad. In fact I want to put aside all my backlogs and play it when it's available.

The story looks cliche and silly enough I will likely enjoy it. I'm sure the gameplay will be slightly better than some RPGs I've played (some of those 8-bit throwbacks are just horrible...among other horrible RPGs I've gone through). It looks really nice and I'm sure i'll get my enjoyment out of it. Also helps the CE looks beautiful.

No you are not the only one. I've been excited for it ever since it was announced and released in Japan. I am a big fan of various anime so I think I can look past some of the negatives people tote. At the end of the day, liking a game comes down to the individual player and no one should tell you otherwise.

Nope, the bad reviews have me curious to see just how bad it is. It peaked my interest back when it was announced though, so I guess I'll see how it is for myself. I can usually find some enjoyment out of most games, unless they are just terrible lol. To my own surprise, I enjoyed Trinity Universe and Rorona way more than I had expected.

This happened to me too, but i had $12 off of Dragon's Crown and The Witch and the hundred knights.  I got online with them and they said it was a system glitch.  They offered me another $10 off to re-preorder (totaling $34 off the two games).  Though if they do get the artbook (which she wouldn't confirm) my place in line was reset. 

 

Because of losing my place in line for the art book, I was pondering asking for a bigger discount, but i didn't want to chance it. 

The way they are giving me the $34 back is a little sketchy though.  The CSR said that after I email her the new order number she'll watch for the order to be completed and then she'll credit my method of payment 2 or 3 days after it ships.  I figure i'll just wait to see what happens, as it's possible I'll get $34 off of Dragon's Crown.

 

I went ahead and ordered it at amazon to make sure i get an art book though.

They did have it. I saw many in my local GS but they didn't allow me to buy, saying they were all for preorders. GameStop.com should also have some.

Like Fairy said, GameStop.com still has some in stock. Your best bet would be to call your local stores around you. All initial shipments of Project X Zone were the limited edition copy (except for Newegg and their crappy fiasco). So if you can find a Target, Best Buy, or GameStop with 1st edition copies you would be able to buy it from a B&M store. Otherwise GameStop.com wouldn't be a bad choice if you could find a free shipping coupon like SAVER.

 

Better decide quick because when they are gone they are gone. With that said the LE is cool and all but it isn't that great. It's just nice since it was the same cost as a vanilla copy.
