Grisaia kickstarter got me interested after seeing how messed up the anime was. Decided to split the cost with a friend who was only interested in the digital copy.

In case people haven't been checking, Target put a bunch of their vita games in the 50% off clearance. I picked up gravity rush today for $7.50.

Really impressive how many Visual Novels are coming west.  My hope is these get Vita versions as what I'd prefer to play them on.

Finally managed to purchase Danganronpa 2 at Gamestop. Game was incredibly hard to find in my area.

psychopass anime sucks so I'm gonna pass on that one.  I highly doubt a vn for it could be anygood when the writing was just in such poor taste.  Would of been a great series if they took out the awful female lead, the main villain and tweaked the serial killer test so it wasn't full of fail.

ooh cool I need to pick up some vita games since I only own hearts r.  too bad my only target is in a upscale area so they don't price match and rarely put stuff on sale outside microwaves.  Damn do they have good prices on microwaves though I always go there especially when they have their gift card promos like buy 2 24 pks of pop and get a 15$ gift card.

It would be nice if they had anything but I'm not getting my hopes up.  :pray:

 

And many that never got a reprint like Fire Emblem so who knows.

ugh don't remind me.  I've spent waay too much money on that series trying to pick up the older titles.  thank god for price tracker.  Of course if I had gotten to block buster when they were closing sooner I probably could of gotten radiant dawn for cheap like a bunch of other people did :/

Seeing Akiba's Trip on sale on PSN made me want to get it on console since I enjoyed it on Vita. But I was disappointed since the PS4 version wasn't on sale.

 

The PS4 version is $40 on Amazon and Gamestop, which is $10 off the MSRP. But it was still a bit much for me since I didn't want to pay a lot to double dip on the game. So I considered getting the PS3 version on PSN since it was cheaper.

 

However, I managed to find a used copy of the PS4 version at my local Gamestop for $31.49 and I had the $5 Kongregate coupon as well lowering the price more.

 

Good thing I looked around. The used copy was complete too with the booklet and case, whoever had it before really took good care of it.

 

Anyways, moral of the story: It's always good to look around :)

Do you think it is worth upgrading to ps4 from vita?

The fights against Takao and Haruna & Kirishima were great. It was about strategy and outwitting their foe. Then it just turned into beam spam and the power of friendship near the end. What a disappointment. At least stuff like GuP kept it interesting up to the final battle. Speaking of, did anyone import the GuP game? Is it decent? It looks like a worse version of WoT. Probably better off adding voice and portrait mods to WoT.

Not to rain on your parade, but you could've also used a birthday coupon to get more off of it. Still good price man. I'm looking to get it on PS3 physical. Still haven't seen any good price drops yet.

From what I heard it was a huge trainwreck, though having not played the VN's I found it highly entertaining. I liked how there was a feeling of continuity among the different arcs and the MC is the best MC I have seen in a long time.

Well, the Vita version was fine but I got really tired of the long load times and constant frame rate drops. While playing through the PS4 version, looks like those issues are now gone. Also, there's a new Visual Editor mode to customize the colors/brightness/etc which is good since I wasn't a fan of brightness and saturation when I started. There's also Toy Box mode, which lets you play the game with any weapon you want (they'll all be unlocked). Oh yeah, all the released DLC is on disc too so that's another plus. With that said, it was worth the upgrade to me. Make sure you get it at a low price though, so you won't feel that bad double dipping on the game.

I knew I was forgetting something! Man, that extra 20% off would have been perfect. :P  And yeah, I haven't seen the PS3 physical copy on sale recently. Guess it'll happen later on :/

I hope the Vita game will be fairly easy to play not knowing Japanese. It'd be fun to give it a try.
