So this GFP game. To best describe it, how Diablo like is it?

 

Since NISA charges when it ships, gotta do that collectors edition.

It does not.  It's similar to their ZHP series on PSP, if you've played it.  Kind of dungeon crawler-y.

Describes this game is the successor to ZHP, so if you liked that game, chances are you will like the game mechanics and game play of this one.

Guided Fate Paradox LE is up for pre-order at NISA

 

Hard cover artbook

8 art cards

2 disc sound track

Matte-framed art piece

Game

 

Price is $74.99

 

I'm very interested in this game since it's been a while since we've seen a good Rogue-like game on a console (the last I remember was that Chocobo Dungeon game on the Wii several years back).  But I wish they gave more detail, like how large / how many pages the artbook is.  Just not sure that I'm seeing $25 worth of value for me personally in that CE stuff.  I prefer stuff I can display, but I will take a good artbook if it's an actual decent-sized book and not one of these pamphlets many companies pass off as "art books".

Heads up to any Vita users. Atelier Totori Plus: The Adventurer of Arland, the port of the ps3 version with all DLC included, is on sale on the PSN for what I believe is the first time since release. It is discounted to $27.99 for normal users and down to $19.59 to any Playstation Plus members.

Dang, is this worth owning if I already have all three Atelier games for :ps3: already? I could have sworn I read somewhere that the sequel to Totori (Meruru) gives you bonuses if you have a Totori save file, but is that not true?

Almost because it hasn't been released yet.

Sega of America is always making me angry....still waiting for Yakuza 5 possibly and Yakuza 1&2 HD, Would love Shining Hearts/Wind whatever. This vocaloid game is something I've wanted for a while so I will buy week 1 as well, but yeah come on Sega of America and look at your fans and see what they actually want. Yes Sonic games are good, but come on....and get that PSO2 game out already! They're definently on my bad list at the moment along with Capcom and other companies (Square-Enix still there haha).

 

I agree with you!!!   I really want Y5 to come out there and I hope it does.  

 

BTW, just saw this post of the top 5 weirdest games from Japan from zoomin.tv.  I know other games that could have been put on this list.  But what do you all think?

Ossu Banchou is the weirdest game I've ever played and sincerely doubt it is listed. 

 

 

This is moderately normal for this game. It got pretty out there in some cases. 6:12 is where it starts to prove my point though.

Cho Aniki deserves to be in that list.  Catherine...not so much. 

 

Other games..."Incredible Crisis" for the PSX, "Baito Hell 2000" (I think it was called "WTF: Work Time Fun" in the U.S. right?) for the PSP, "Chulip" for the PS2 was also a bit weird.

Catherine is not as weird as people like to think. It's just a block puzzle game.

 

And that list needed more Raw Danger

I would gladly welcome the rest of series to come over here! :)

I'd love for Elminage 2 & 3 to get localized. Hopefully the translation is much better though.

How strange, Project Diva F is listed as "Not Available" on GameStop's site.

 

I somehow doubt that this game got a lot of pre-orders, but I really hope they didn't stop pre-orders in stores, I was gonna pre-order it real soon.

Amazon still has Project Diva F for pre-order.  Going to wait for a significant price drop or sale before snagging a copy.

Amazon doesnt have the DLC though. Is it exclusive to GS? Or will it just be paid dlc down the line

Probably just paid dlc down the road, doubt sega is crazy enough to make snow miku GS exclusive... 

 

edit:

from their site so ya, definitely sound like it will be available later on for everyone.

 

These bonuses are exclusive to Gamestop for a limited time, so you can be among the first to receive them by pre-ordering and pledging your support for the game!

This was sent out by NIS a few days ago:

Regarding Disgaea D2 standard edition pre-orders at Gamestop only:

 

Pre-order now for a free Bonus Official Soundtrack, consisting of 40 Netherworldly songs on 2 CDs!
Pre-order and also receive a high-quality print of key promotional art by Takehito Harada, featuring the main characters!

-----

Soundtrack seems to be the same one included in the LEs. The art print is exclusive to GS pre-orders, as far as I can tell. That's gonna suck :(

You forgot the first run DLC. Also Siliconera claims that this stuff (DLC, OST, Picture) are included with first run copies.

Well, ignore that then. Stupid NIS and their shitty email with like no details in it. Just links to GS's site, /sigh

 

The DLC mentioned in the email is "available the first 30 days after launch." Take it however you want I guess.
