Thanks for the heads up, sir!
Was planning to wait until Monday afternoon to weight out my last buys.

EU+ regularly announces their next month's lineup approx 10 days in advance. NA is usually the Thurs before end of month at best. My guess is NA will announce sometime after this Thursday.

P1 & P2 are both very different from P3&P4.

I enjoyed P1, but it takes a very special taste in games - a lot of my friends who haven't been playing games since the late 80's don't appreciate the way they're built, and they haven't aged especially well. That said, they're solid games. Liking or hating them will come down to your gameplay background and expectations.

Check out some gameplay videos on youtube and see if they're something you'd dig. I snagged them both up just to replay on my Vita, didn't have em on that platform before the sale.

I don't think P2 is that huge of a difference. Yes, combat is a bit different, and you don't have the social links thing, but you still have the quirky main characters and odd conversations with other people. You can tell that it is an ancestor of P3.

Sorry, but the combat and social links are the two main things that separate the two halves of the series. That's kind of a huge thing that separates them. Yes, the core of the stories are sort of similar, but that's not the part of the games that people are talking about.

Yes, you can easily get 90+ hours out of it.The Vita version of 3 also includes all the DLC, so it's a long RPG with a bunch of extra crap.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

I've heard good things about Disgaea..is it that good?


if you're into SRPGS, it could very well be the best of genre. I haven't played D3 yet, but have put a lot of time into other ones.

Very combat centric - basically, you've got 'story' missions, but those almost play second fiddle to everything else. for example, say you've got a sword lying around. you can 'enter' the sword via the item world, and every level you clear of the -swords- dungeon levels the sword up.

There's also other depth - for example, some items have special npcs trapped on certain levels, which you can then rescue and transplant between items, further giving them special capabilities.

I actually spend far more time playing around with this side of things than doing actual stories.

Combat is both simple and highly complex -- that is, you can just do your traditional srpg move/attack type combat, or you can pull off all sorts of tricks involving stacking or throwing characters... and each board has color cubes which can either be used for their effect or to essentially 'blow up' the board in a controlled fashion for mega-experience.

the game essentially turns 'grinding' into a fun experience, where you never feel like you're grinding. going into a new weapon to level it up is an experience unto itself, even though it's just an item world (and there are endless items).

highly recommended. it'll take a little time to 'get it', but once you do it's an easy 50 - 1000 hour game, depending on how deep you fall in.

Wow, my retail version of De Blob 2 isn't even worth selling/trading in.

Still, EscapeVektor and Armageddon are both tempting, I'll be able to hit $50 with ease.
