Why not just make an account?  You collect points

That is the kind of downside I was talking about. Never ordered from them before and didn't know about the points. Canceling my preorder and re-ordering with an account. Thanks.

Atlus appears to be teasing a localization announcement for Conception 2.

 

Wow!!  That's pretty exciting!  It looks a little Persona-esque, but that's not a bad thing.  Seems to have sold well and gotten good reviews in Japan.  I kind of miss the whole epic, save the world questy games.  Seems like everything is either an action game these days, or a game with randomized dungeons (or both!).  Or maybe the dungeons aren't random in this one?

 

Anyway, whatever the case, it is very welcome indeed.

Either that or for a new Trauma game. Either way, I'll be excited.

I have 30 estore credit from FE/SMT.  Should I use it to get the new Phoenix Wright?  I'm not sure if it'll be worth it, but it's download only and I haven't really seen much else to spend the credit on.  I could buy old zeldas but I've played all of those.

If you can't find anything you truly want to spend your money on, then you're not looking hard enough.  :)  That said, if you've liked Phoenix games in the past, you'll like this one.  It's my favorite out of them all, personally.

Phoenix Wright is old hat. Get Senran Kagura instead.

Sayonara Umihara Kawase releases next year.

I thought the code for the credit expires at the end of the year but the credit stays.

Whenever Sayonara Umihara Kawase is mentioned, I get excited because I for some reason think of Haruhi Suzumiyu (sp?).

 

But Sayonara Umihara Kawase will be better than a Haruhi game probably anyway.

 

(Well, it won't, because a Haruhi RPG would be awesome, even if it wasn't very good.  But Sayonara Umihara Kawase will still be awesome!)

 

Senran Kagura Burst is a lot of fun.  I don't know what kind of reviews it'll get, perhaps not above the 70s or 80s, but for beat'em up fans, it's pretty great.  (Yes, I got it cause I like beat'em ups!  Y u look at me like that!)

For the points, they send you a $5 gift certificate for every... $100 you order, I believe. It's not amazing, but there's no tax and there's free shipping, so...

Does that $30 eShop credit ever expire?

Shouldn't do.  It seems like it would be treated the same as if you put money onto your 3DS from a credit card or bought and used an eShop card.

Indie fighter Skullgirls is free to play this weekend on Steam, and is 33% off, marked down from $14.99 to $9.99.

 

http://iplaywinner.c...til-monday.html

 

You also get the DLC character Squiggly for free also, since it's only free for a limited time like the PSASBRs DLC characters.

 

The game plays like old 2D fighting games and has a style like Marvel vs Capcom 2.

 

It has anime-like visuals, and is pretty niche.

 

It also has 4 additional free DLC characters comming in the future.

Aksys website is having a sale to raise money for the Phillipines disaster relief:

 

http://store.aksysga...isaster-relief/

 

They have four packages, which include the muramasa fan+soundtrack, Blazblue Jubei plushie, muramasa lithograph+soundtrack, Blazblue comic.

 

Each are $5 and first item is free shipping within us.

 

I picked up the fan since it didn't come with the limited edition.. $5 can't complain though and it's for charity

Grabbed the BlazBlue comic, and might get the Jubei plushie as well.

Thanks for this. I bought something from them the last time they did this. Their heart is always in the right place. 

 

Will probably get the fan and the plush.

The Jubei plushie is cute, but I'd have nowhere to put it and I'm not really into stuffed animals.

Grabbed the fan. Their handling of the shipping is stupid though, since if you want multiple things, they punish you for bundling.

It's more of them covering the shipping on the first order to be cool than them specifically charging people that order multiple things.

 

I'll probably pick up the fan as well or get the plushie..damn, hard choice here.
