Damn, looks like Neptunia V will be my first Collectors pre-order of the year.

You get a pending charge at the time of the order, and they'll actually charge a few days before shipping (probably 2?). I'll check my bank account to see when they did it last time.

But PayPal charges immediately always, don't they? Or am I mistake ?

Ok mk2 released on Feb 28th. I see the charge dated the 21st. Turns out this was on Paypal so you'll get a pending charge on paypal too. Should drop off after a few days.

corrected the date

Thanks. Locked in a preorder as well!

I'm also curious why is Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 so expensive?!

My collection and trade-list:
H: The Legend Of Zelda: Hyrule Historia LE in Mint condition W: equal value in trades or amazon/eBay prices

Beyond the collector status, can anyone actually recommend this game? Was MK2 any good? Cmon, I can't be the only one who noticed the 'playskool's My First RPG you win every battle zero tactics' of the first game.
Say, "fuzzy pickles."

MK2 is slightly better than the first from what I've heard from everyone who played it (I refuse to waste my time on a game that's merely less bad than terrible though).

I doubt this one is gonna be much better than the rest. I still bought a copy, so we'll see if I'm wrong, but I doubt it.

Limited edition, sold out VERY fast. Lots of people waited until the last minute, and then is sold out before the actual cut off date. And yes, some of those people DID buy the "collectors value" on eBay etc. later on... A lesson in always pre-ordering early... just in case.

Never opened either one of the first two but made sure to grab the premium edition of them when they were available. Gonna do the same with this one :D

If it's any incentive, apparently Nobuo Uematsu's band did the music:

I find it very odd that big name individuals like Inafune and Uematsu are included in such a niche game. Perhaps an indication of its growing success as a series? One can only hope ...

Stopped checking in on this thread after the whole Mugen Souls fiasco. The stupid moderator kept deleting any refrence to it, even just a simple link to the developers official statement on what was removed. Figure no point following a thread that gets edited so idiotically for no reason, who knows what kinda info might be getting removed

anyway, that said i figured this is probably the best place to ask about this: Under Defeat: Deluxe Edition. Is that worth picking up? It looks like a SMUP but not really a bullet hell game. What category would this be under? Im also wondering whats so 'delux' about it. Its in my gold box right now so im considering getting it. Not sure if its worth waiting for it to hit $20 or not. Sometimes these niche games drop and other times they just sell out. Any ideas if this one is in the running to drop in price?

I was also curiuos about the cover.. which one is this? I see a generic boring helecopter one, and a more dramatic looking one with actual characters. Whats the difference?

It's a normal shmup, not bullet hell so if you like those kinds of games then it's worth it.

As for deluxe, it comes with a physical soundtrack, all japanese DLC/patches on disc(not sure what this includes), and an extra DLC chopper(not sure if on disc or code yet since I haven't opened it yet). I don't see there being a non-deluxe version though as I kinda doubt this game will get a reprint, so it will either plummet in price or become hard to find after a while.

I don't recall exactly what article it was, but they are all friends. I believe inafune helped with mk2 as well.

Is the HNV CE exclusive to NISA?

I kept thinking mk2 was going to be available at GS/Amazon (like the first one was)... and needless to say, I regret not reading things more carefully.

Probably, all CEs (mk2, Meruru, Mugen Souls) since Disgaea 4 have been exclusive to the NISA store.

Yeah, seriously considering importing to get the Nendroids now. That's what I did for mkII. And since I don't want to open my US CE, I might even have to get a 2nd US version just to play.

I think somewhere in that logic chain I just talked myself into buying the game 3 times to play it once. That can't be right...

Didn't even think about that. Good point.

I wonder if these will be as limited as mk2 was though... Mugen Souls is still in stock so I can't help but wonder if they'll mass produce these as well. Or maybe nobody wants Mugen Souls?

Agreed. With the whole censorship thing and it being a new IP, it seems it didn't sell very well. It's been at that same stock category since like 2 weeks after it was open for preorder. Both the figure set and LE seemed to drop to the 'below 50%' stock around the same time oddly enough.

The only other LE that ended up being discounted on their store was Totori. I'm actually just waiting for the MS LE to drop in price before I get it.

Mugen Souls 2 has already been announced for Japan. I wonder if they are even going to bother localizing that one.
