FSSS/Prime eligible

I know there was a previous thread for the game at $19.xx here but I felt a new thread was justified for $14.99.

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

shoot, just looked up the sequel and its on 3DS instead of NDS.

Yes, they changed the box art of 999 when they did a reprint.

It is a great interactive novel with puzzle elements. If you can't stand reading a lot of text then it is not the game for you. Otherwise if you enjoy a good story, it is highly recommended.

If I had to guess, maybe 5-7 hours for a first playthrough and 15-20 hours if you wanted to get every ending (which I highly, highly recommend doing).

What I remember best about 999 is sitting in bed playing until 4am almost every night, and occasionally in the afternoon, so the exact length of my playtime is a bit hazy. I was addicted. :D

Yes, to go along with the sequel, since they are the same series. Nothing was changed in the game.

This is a game that's likely to go OOP sooner rather than later, and at 14.99, its worth putting in your backlog (heck, it's worth putting at the top of your backlog).

9 hours obviously.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Great game. I recommend playing the first time without a FAQ, and the following playthroughs with a guide on how to get the true ending. You might not figure out how to get the real ending on your own, since there's a certain path and dialogue choices you need to make.

I just wish the reprinted covers weren't so ugly. I prefer the original print better.

Me too. Also, loved the 9 hours answer :P and LSP is right, this is one of the better games on the DS, and VLR is supposed to be even better. Can't wait for it.

I snooze, I lose. Looks like that hesitation was costly. Ah well, maybe it'll be $10 soon.

I bought this from the Aksys store for $19.99. Should have waited a bit longer, but o well. Not a big deal.

Sorry to get off topic, but did anyone else order The World Ends With You from Amazon and have it cancelled? 999 and TWEWY were both backordered around the same time. Not sure what is going on with TWEWY, but they don't even have it anymore. I tried to check the price at the Square Enix store, but it's down completely because they were hacked or something.

I'd recommend doing at least two play-throughs before using a guide, I think I did three and got three different endings just from making different choices each time. From there, I used a guide to get the other endings. There's a good chart out there that basically tells you what you need to do to get each ending without giving away anything.

This game was my favorite experience on the DS, along with Hotel Dusk and Elite Beat Agents.
