Wait till it hits $20. It's extremely short,with a story that really makes no sense at all. The gameplay is just okay,but it could've been better if it were more refined. Compared to other hack and slash games on the market it's shit,but still worth a playthough

Hey, is Killer Dead a good game. I seen reviews and they say it bad game but i would like to hear a gamers opinion. Is worth getting now? Should i wait until its at $20 mark?

I enjoyed it, but it's short, nonsensical, and suffers from screen tearing. The controls are smooth and responsive. The story is Suda's take on 007, which is to say it is difficult to follow and makes nearly no sense. The gigolo sequences are nowhere near as bad as the media has made them out to be. I wouldn't encourage anyone to pay full price, but I'm not upset I paid $50 for it either.

Hopefully that means those Hyperdimension Neptunia Vita remakes will get localized

Never understood why people even want this game... it is like one of the most boring, put you to sleep game I've played.  This is one game that I feel definitely fall into the niche != worth playing game which I think too many people like them just because of that.

The cool cover art is worth picking it up :)

 

Story mode should be awesome. Copy from Amazon is due for delivery today.

I'm sad that the outer box art is ruined by the HUGE "soundtrack inside!!" Image. Sad that it's goodbye to Atlus manuals from now on in 3DS games... They used to be the best! I thought they would continue since although EOIV didn't have one, Soul Hackers did. Guess that was the last one...

There's a lengthy demo available on the eshop, and it lets you import your save into the full version if you buy it.  It's been getting great reviews, too.  Of the twenty reviews listed on Metacritic, all but two are 80 or better.

I preorder rune factory 4 at my local gamestop. went there earlier today and it didn't come in tho they already have EO:U.  I was told they only received 2 copies, 1 being my preorder.  Just got a VM from the store that it did just came in so I guess I will go pick it up before leaving on a short business trip.  I also paid off my Zelda windwaker CE since I won't be back to pick it up on Friday so they better hold it for me.

 

also got txt from my ups store that my EO:U came in so woooohoooo... decision decision. RF4 or EO:U to play during the trip.

I am getting it today, but I have a test this week and a lot of homework, so I can't play it for a while.

 

 

Does anyone know if I can return it without the pre-order bonus?

Preorder bonus is packaged inside the sealed cardboard box, so nope.

So it's an LE? I thought it was added to a regular edition. I wouldn't have gotten it I knew. I can't even play it for a while.

Etrian Odyssey looks good but my problem is I just don't wanna spend $40 on a game I wont get to for a few months. Although I want the LE. Decisions...

Might be regular edition. Even the LE wasn't amazing enough to be excited to get it for $40.

Also just curious, anyone who ordered the Disgaea D2 LE+Guide get charged yet? Could have sworn the email said if you ordered early enough you'd be charged by today.

 

And I ordered mine the hour it went up

No billing yet for me, and no update to the order status either.

I order it around the same time and didn't get charged, though I only ordered the LE.

I'll wait for a drop.  Amazon should have Untold Story LE for at least several months.  Some people still getting EOIV LE depending on where it's shipped from.
