was just trying to organize some of my games and noticed something. I guess i never picked up a regular version of Atelier Meruru. I have the CE but dont really plan on opening that. I tried glancing online but it seems GS doesn't have it anymore, and Amazon only has it listed through 3rd party sellers for around 29 bucks. Did it drop much lower than that, or is that about what i should expect to pay for a new one? Not too thrilled with getting it through a 3rd party seller on amazon, ive gotten some crap from them in the past

 

I am tempted to open the damn CE but i will have to restrain myself. I want that damn Barrel T-shirt, hah.

Just buy it straight from NISA for $30 shipped. http://store.nisamer...tandard-Edition

Project Diva 2 for the US is pretty nice news.  I'm not sure if I'll get it or not but I'm leaning yes.


Taking a break from things until I get my head back on straight or something.  I'm sorry if I've sounded like an idiot or worse.

BlazBlue as a PS3 game is pretty much done.  The next game won't be out for another 2 years and by then the PS3 will be on its last leg.  PS4 BlazBlue will be running a new engine.

Hence "next-gen".

Why does the sequel make the first one obsolete? It has mostly new songs. :???:

i am def getting project diva f 2 this time, missed the chance last time. it is hard to find now , without paying above msrp price.

Frys.com still has it in stock for msrp (w/ free shipping).  I don't think they ever sold out (has always been available at my local store as well).

I think I might have to pre-order Project Diva F 2nd.  Might get the Vita version since I already have the PS3 version of the first game.

Anyone know if Deception IV is supposed to be limited print? I see Amazon.com only has 5 of them and it doesn't say "more on the way"

 

I checked both the PS3 and Vita version and I believe PS3 had about 271 copies and Vita about 371 copies, not so limited though I'm sure it wasn't a huge print run. I get mine on Thursday for Vita and am pretty excited woot!

Newegg has been slipping more and more with things. If it's an AAA title I will expect them to fulfill, if it's not you may get gimped editions (ProjectxZone regular to start, missing DLC that was expected, cancelled orders (forgot think it was Tales of Xillia CE). I like them enough but the pre-orders are becoming less and less and in the end may just have the Last Guardian pre-ordered forever more.

I don't know if I would trust that since magic box isn't a reliable source.

Still no shipping confirmation here, but no cancellation either.

My Target WatHK shipped today, I didn't think they'd follow through but they did.

The first Project Diva ony released on PS3 in the U.S.?  I could have sworn it was available on Vita. Or did it release digitally only here? I guess I need to swing by Fry's on my way home to snag the PS3 version since it's already OOP.

 

On the same note, did the new Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z not come to the Vita in the U.S.? I'm going to import the UK version if I have to, as far as I can tell that version comes in English so that would be the best to import since I don't read Japanese sadly.

The UK is England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, so yeah... that's English. There's no guessing, hoping, or reckoning needed lol.

Sorry I meant the EU version, there's no UK version. haha

 

It's a bad habit as I always think of the UK (my family is from England) when I think of Europe. I'm well aware of what countries make up the UK.

That's what I thought. Pretty sure I've seen it on PSN. I'll have to keep my eye on it in case it goes on sale.

Someone may correct me if i'm wrong but I believe the PS Vita version is missing some songs and they are there as DLC instead compared to the PS3 version. With the newer Project Diva F 2nd, both versions seem to have the same song selection.

 

 

Also my thoughts on the Conception 2 Vita demo:

 

- Okay sized demo (about 3 hours worth)

- I liked the characters enough and the English voices weren't terrible

- The graphics are relatively nice, you think they're going for like persona 4ish like graphics and environments. The 3D models are okay, I prefer the graphic novel 2D portraits when they come up.

- The challenge wasn't quite there for the very beginning, items are plentiful and monsters don't hit for much, most happened was I had some lvl 1 star children and they went out in a fight, most of the time my main party (hero and S Rank Lady) didn't get hurt too bad.

- Classmating seems like an ok system though I'm not quite sure how to get more advanced classes (guessing getting to know the ladies more). I know to actually get the children you need BP from event interactions.

- The visual novel parts (interacting with the ladies and other students mainly in the school) is passable sometimes. The dialogue and interaction haven't gotten deep so far. This isn't quite as good as social links, but possibly equivalent more to meetings (not dates) from a game like Tokimeki Memorial. It does help a bit with the repetitiveness though.

- This game is quite repetitive. You can skip some battles but you need the exp. The environments used for the first dungeon are so samey and blend together so it never really feels like wow I'm advancing levels and such. It all looks the same and the only way you know you're before a boss is it warning you the stage before. The fights generally consist of a few things (moving around to try to get to an enemies weak spot and doing something and then ability or attacking the enemy, and then occasionally defending or moving out an enemies attack area marked by a warning in the areas that aren't safe to be in. This is a dungeon crawler but it doesn't quite have the uniqueness of areas like Etrian Odyssey or changing environments like the Persona series of games. Overall I was having fun but went autopilot on many fights near the end of the demo.

- The music is also pretty neat, also trying to sound like a Persona type game, though the songs aren't as catchy

 

Overall I would recommend it, but it's not going to be earth shattering. I will buy it, and it seems fun enough, but I know it will be a pick up and play type of game for me considering I already was feeling repetitiveness in the gameplay (and not as fun at doing the same things unlike say Etrian Odyssey). The vita save transfers into the full version so I recommend everyone try it out if they're interested. I've heard the 3DS demo is short and over quick compared to this, and I do feel the Vita demo gives a very good indication if you'll enjoy the game later.

I read the PS blog post about the Vita release and there is some DLC that is supposed to make up the missing tracks (it's $9.99). It's worth picking up both versions to double dip trophies. :D

In mid-November, Target had it for $20, which Amazon matched.

Same thing, also digital only.
