im curious what people think.

can i preorder more than one copy of a game at gamestop? if not can i go to different gamestops and preorder another copy? and furthermore is it worth preordering an extra copy or two of xenoblade and last story? do you think they are likely to skyrocket in price at some point? im going to have a play the game copy yes but im talking keeping one or two sealed.

it just seems like one of those games that in 5 years a sealed copy will be worth ALOT. i could be wrong though. im seriously considering it. but you guys know a lot more about this than me so im asking.

GameStop isn't a Russian bread line. You can pre-order as many copies as you like.

Ah... so I'm missing the soundtrack but I get a big box instead? How does NIS ship the game them, just a bunch of crap in a shipping box, no unique LE packaging for the game itself?

Pretty much, as far as I can tell.

Well damn it. I'm thinking of playing through Disgea because I positively love the Prinny games. Which versions are most "complete"? I wanna play 1,2,3,4. They're good right?

There were only 3 good things about Cross Edge

The premise (I loved damn near every character in the game)
The sprites (They looked good)
And the Battle Music (Even though it played for 90% of the battles, it sounded awesome).

Everything else was fail

Just a heads up for anyone interested: Atlus's Radiant Historia (DS) re-release is this Tuesday March 20th. I pre-ordered it about 3 weeks ago, got an email yesterday from Amazon letting me know it will ship soon. Amazon is still showing it in stock ($34.99) for anyone interested!

Sorry if this was already posted, I didn't check.



Since I wasn't sure which, if any, other retailers were getting any copies of this, I went ahead and ordered one. Now to just wait for it to arrive...

You'd be surprised. It was easily the most disappointed I was in a game that year (unless it was the same year Mass Effect 2 came out, I don't remember). The battle system was very much not to my liking. Great characters, but I didn't play it for more than an hour.

So what's the best version of the first 2 disgaea games?

I know there's a few remakes. Trying to choose the best one.

The best versions would be the PSP versions if you want some added content. Honestly though there's enough meat to the PS2 versions that you wouldn't be missing much if you'd rather them on a console. If you ever plan to get a Vita you'd be better off getting Disgaea 3 on the Vita since all the DLC is included(which is like $50 on PSN I believe).

If you don't care about prettier graphics and voice acting, I'd go the DS version of the first one over the PSP version, since there's extra playable characters and the map on the top screen.

DS Disgaea: more content.
PSP Disgaea: far better presentation.

DS doesn't add *that* much, and Disgaea's presentation is a large part of what makes it so good. PSP's version is the best overall. of course, knowing NIS they'll probably release a 'complete' version down the road. let's say... 10th year anniversary? would be 2013. yes, it's been about 10 years.

Only extra content in DS version is Prinny Commentary and one extra character.

I was in Best Buy today and saw that the Record of Agarest War Zero LE for PS3 had dropped to $39.99. It's not listed on their site anymore, but according to an employee it's a permanent price drop.

Agreed. Easily NIS's worst game. Although Last Rebellion is a close second.

Is it weird that I kinda enjoyed Cross Edge? Figuring out how to do the mega combos was pretty awesome.

Yeah, notice that last night they must have recieved more units of the standard because two weeks (less) they canceled on me. Put another order in and hopefully this one will go through. If they don't want to print extra copies then they add the game to PSN/XBLA, they already did for BB CS so why not the enchanced version?

Anyone thanks for the heads up.
