Good luck, though it's an easy platinum with the exception of tactical challenge 4 and 6. 

Yeap. Only the tactical challenges are gonna hold me down. :lol:

I've pretty much lost all hype for Akiba Strip PS3 now that the PS4 version has been announced for Japan. 

 

Hopefully they bring that over here too.

Has anyone had this happen to them?

I placed an order with Nisa awhile back with multiple items in it. The package shipped out earlier this week and arrived today. My tracking info says that it was supposed to have 3 items in it, but the packing list and box contain only one thing.

Was it 3 of the same item, or 3 different items? My last order with them was for 3 of the same item, and for some ungodly reason, they shipped 2 items in one box, and 1 single item in the other. I was like WTF?

 

I only got tracking for the one package, and the other arrived a day later. For some reason, the one box with two items shipped from TX, and the other single item box shipped from Arizona I believe. I never did get a reason why they separated the order that way. So is this normal? Yeah, I guess it is. If I remember correctly, one came by UPS and the other by USPS.

i am surprised they put it up this early.

Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection

 

Best Buy comes through yet again!

 

 

Also my Demon Gaze shipped from BB on the 17th, expected on Thursday. If it's like what I expected with my other games, it'll be handed to USPS which would delay it even further.

Just got my tracking info...not delivered till april 25th using media mail...which means they stuffed the CE in a cheap envelop and will be crushed to hell. I will be talking with NISA support for compensation or replacement if this actually happens...

It's nice that Amazon ships to you in boxes, but several other CAGs reported that Best Buy and Amazon did not and they got damaged copies.  I was lucky that the local indie game retailer got copies in that were in perfect shape, so I was able to purchase copies there. I do have to say that even the game shop commented on how flimsy Atlus' boxes had become and he is a fellow collector and long-time Atlus fan.     

Yeah, Amazon shipping is definitely worse now relative to before.  I used to be able to buy two items in an order, and it would always come in a box.  Now, Amazon will stuff those two items into a bubble mailer.  The limit now may be at least three items if you want a box (assuming all items are being shipped from the same location)

It's possible they shipped from different locations or it was also possibly that they had two ready to go and the other came later in the day. Lot's of variables could go into the what ifs...though, "James" in packing could be a screw up and overlooked something.

I have a tracking number, but man it's coming a lot later then I expected (april 25th) normally NisA's shipping even for free is pretty fast. oh well not like I will play it any time soon so it doesn't matter.

Mine shows that it'll get to me on Monday. Your shipping info update might be a little slow, though.

usually when my shipping info is this far along at best I get it a day earlier than stated *shrugs*

again not a big deal I don't really expect to play demon gaze until july or aug.

Hmm, that's odd. What's even odder is that I'm in NE Texas. Mine shows it went from Grand Prairie, TX - Coppell, TX, then to Shreveport, LA...just to come back to Omaha, TX...

 

Like you, I'm so backlogged I won't play it for some either, but we like getting our games asap regardless if we get to play them now or later.

Poke and pierce maybe?

 

Haha all I remember from Fairy Fencer F is that busty lady who seems to only wear some barely there tied up shirt type top thing I believe and one of her scenes was her getting caught changing. Not that i'm complaining, as I'll buy it, but that's all I remember haha.

My Disgaea D2 came in from Play Asia. Came in better packaging than every CE I order from Amazon, lol.

 

Now the only JRPG's I wanna get for my PS3 collection is Hyperdimensional Neptunia Victory and the latest Atelier game but they will be once it's cheaper.

Hey guys, the page for Tales of Hearts is down, but for some reason, you're still able to preorder in store. I put the whole amount down and was able to preorder it yesterday. The listing said it's coming out on 1/01/15, but that's just a placeholder date, obviously.

Thanks, I was actually going to ask a local store about it. :)

I'll just wait till the page comes back.....doooood what's taking Bamco so long to "announce" it without being embarrassed and taking things down.

50+ ps3 games, 30ps2 games,25ds/3ds games, 20 xbox360 games, 20wii games, 10gamecube games, 5 wii U games, 3seasons of downtown Abby on blu ray, 2 ps1 games, and 1 fiancé...I'll find time somehow..when I finish this stupid engineering degree and have time to enjoy life again.

I too have a fiancee and have had a computer engineering degree for a few years. I find myself having more time. Every time I read something that says "I wish I had as much time as I had in college to play games" I just laugh.

 

The biggest pitfall is: Disposable income can turn into a larger backlog. I found a nice Play n Trade near where I moved to work that did Buy 2 Get 1 all used games, all the time. So I was just like "yeah, I can get down on some retro" and the backlog probably tripled.

 

But! My fiancee games (which helps a lot when I want to spend time on my hobby) and I play more games now than I did through all of college (non-working breaks excluded).

 

I did dump all of my free money into student loans first though, which is advisable. As soon as those were paid off though.. Things got out of hand. :P

Slightly more on-topic post:

 

Has anyone seen the IA/VT Colorful Crystal Box in stock anywhere?

 

I held off on my order because on play-asia's search page it says "announced, pre-orders coming soon" but I just noticed that if you actually click on the item they say that they've already sold all of their allocations.

Honestly it looks like a pretty lame CE. If there is no localization announcement around the time the game comes out (and I'm not expecting one, this would be a pretty major risk for Xseed) I'll probably import the regular game. IA is my favorite vocaloid, so I will play this game one way or another >__>
