Can anyone comment on whether this would be worth getting? I never played the prior Parasite Eve games but after looking through the guide a little (obtained during the last guide drop at BBY), the game sounds more interesting than I thought. I loved Crisis Core, another PSP Action-RPG to which I've seen this compared, if that helps any.

I do have about 10 PSP RPGs that I have yet to play, but at this price, I wonder if it would ever drop lower (possibly to $9.99) or if I should get it now. Thanks in advance.


I really enjoyed 3rd birthday, the fighting style was very fun with diving into people, it encourages knowing your battlefield. The storyline makes absolutely no sense until the ending though.

Yep, Solarorobo mentioned the CD soundtrack in it's description. Also snagged Legend of Heroes:Trails in the Sky LE and Ghost Trick. Now to just hope they don't come smashed in delivery. Haven't had problems with Amazon in the past, but the last game I got from them (Rayman Origins) came with the game and small artbook in a bubble mailer; they were still in great condition, just....something they haven't done before but heard they are doing quite often now. :/

Managed to pick up the last copy of Alterier Rorona from a nearby GameStop. Best part is that their only copy was the Limited Edition one. Rang up for the regular price of the game, so it was $30. Little confused why the plastic wrapping on the game itself had a sticker that said "GameStop Exclusive" when it really wasn't.

Actually, the special edition for Rorona really was a GameStop exclusive...for the big display box. Think there was a "special edition" at NISA's store, but it was just a regular edition game case bundled with the artbook and a CD.

Similar thing happened to me with Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2's Collector's Edition. Kept seeing it at my then local store in the front and went home and saw how much it was going for. *jaws drop* Went back and asked if they still had it and the ringer took it out from behind a inconspicuous cabinet and it rang up for the price of the regular edition ($40 at the time despite the $60 price sticker). LOVE when that happens!

Ah, that explains it, then. Thought it was just the usual of GameStop claiming to have an exclusive pack-in when Amazon had it at some point. I remember them doing this with Chrono Trigger DS, where they claimed reservation earns you an exclusive soundtrack, but Amazon offered the same promotion.

And yeah, I definitely love when they remove the LE prices and merge them into the standard SKU. I still need to check the other GS by me that was listed having Hyperdimension Neptunia's LE in stock before the standard reprints went up if they might have it in stock, still. I know the dude that rang me up for Atelier Rorona had to go to the back to get a stool in order to grab the game since it was locked up in a high cabinet with other CE/SE/LE/PE's of the sort. If I can, I'm totally returning the sealed game since I got the standard one from my online order before.

Found a couple of GS around me that had the CE of Record of Agarest War Zero for the PS3 at $30. Was tempted to buy it but held off on it. Anyone have any thoughts on the game?

Also missed out on the Persona 2 deal. 100% claimed. :( Seems Dragon Quest IV is the next one. Wish it was for DQV.

I still have to buy that one. $30 is pretty good for collector's edition. Especially since GS doesn't get many in of certain titles.

DQIV....I wonder if they will beat Newegg.com's $14.99 price.

Then again, I could be wrong. The wording behind the description's tricky, so it could pretty much either mean DQ appearing for the first time on the DS, a particular DQ game appearing on the DS for the first time or just a brand new one appearing on the DS.

So it's guaranteed to be either IV, VI or IX. I'm betting either IV or IX.

Edit: Yep. It's DQIV. $11.99 is not a bad price for it. Shame SE decided to cut corners and told the translation group to not bother touching the party chat and axe it.

I've played the first one(have the Zero CE but not played it yet) and it's not the best the SRPG and it can get repetitive but it was pretty good overall and I didn't regret buying it and still got the (pre)sequel afterwards. I'd recommend it if you don't have Disgaea 4 or Valkyria Chronicles yet, otherwise I'd say focus on those first since they're better SRPGs for the system.

My Legend of Heroes:TitS CE, Solatorobo, and Ghost Trick should arrive today. This time its UPS, not USPS, who's doing the delivering. Will be interesting to see what condition these fragile boxed games will be in......the big Skyrim CE (that my roomate got a few weeks ago; came in great condition, probably considering how big it is) box this isn't.

I held off on grabbing P2 after hearing the horror stories behind Amazon's handling of it. I'm still waiting to see what condition my Legend of Heroes: TitS LE will come in. I really was hoping Fate/Extra's LE would be cheaper. $30 isn't much of a deal to me for a PSP game.

Did pick up Dragon Quest VI from Newegg for $14.99, though.
