Yeah, I'm perplexed by that reply. When my stuff is broken, I'd be happy if they sent a singing telegram.

 

 

Is it okay that I pretend she is a awkward, but adorable Japanese woman?

I'm sorry, but these posts need to be together.

I have to admit, seeing them together made me laugh more than it should have. I also notice how they don't help the conversations in any way, lol.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D
Puzzle and Dragons Z + Mario Edition

Are up on Best Buy. Remember Xenoblade requires "new" 3DS.

 

Are you picking up the 3DS one Xenoblade fans? I'm considering it, but decided to hold off on the new 3DS for now. Hopefully it won't shoot to crazy prices like the last game while I wait. :P

I'm getting a New 3DS mainly because of the Gamestop $100 trade in. Everywhere else you trade the old 3ds xl it's a kick in the nuts.

Just $100 for a standard 3DS XL still feels like a kick in the nuts; $150 would have been better.

As long as the new Fire Emblem game is coming for the 3DS, I wont be getting a N3DS yet.

well depending on sales, they might try to put the format to n3ds only even though it doesnt need to be to force more people to buy and who are waiting for the regular model

Don't have the game on PC personally, but from what I've seen is that it'll be the native resolution of your monitor if you play the game full-screen.

 

Doesn't look too bad though either way:

No, max res is 1600x900. They even made a statement saying they made an error in saying the game would be 1080p. 

 

http://steamcommunit...696927915745338

 

When it's fullscreen, it's just scaled. Hopefully someone will save us and add in a fix for 1080p.

 

edit: It seems things like GeDoSaTo works on Direct3d games, while Neptunia is an OpenGL game... the dream is DEAD.

Dammit, I just bought one from Amazon on Monday. Of course it wasn't much more than that and I have Prime...but still though.

Honestly, I think the $100 is just right, perhaps pretty generous. The 3DS XL MSRP is like $200, and often goes to $180-ish. The trade in value at Target, Bestbuy, or Walmart is like $50 range. If $100 is a kick in the nuts, $50 must be like sticking your nuts in a blender.

once the new 3ds xl  finally release, you will be lucky to get $50

Why does the box art say Xenoblade Chronicles X, like the Wii U sequel?

Amazon price matched. Contact their CS to get your money back!

not like it doesn't have its own vulgar sex humor in it >.>  Only thing I hate about the series.  that and the very fanservice outfits :/  While semi on topic I am having a bit of trouble with neptunia 3 victory chapter 2 boss with the high hp regen rate.  Any tips on what I'm supposed to do to kill that thing?  Or am I just underleveled or something?

Yeah I haven't played Victory in a while but for all the Neptunia games, grinding and over leveling is a great help. Also use the battle arena if you unlocked it although i think that might come at chapter 3. Also make sure you buy the latest equipment, and once you get access to the CDs and Roms, equip those too. Using HDD alot and maximizing the combos system is also a great help. The Yellow Heart boss in chapter 5 is extremely difficult, and the best help I can give is to use HDD in the beginning, then use Stat boosts, and Plutia has the best Stat Boosts in the game, they are usually AP skills. Also conserve your combo meter to the end, and then unleash the finishers when boss has <25% health.

 

The screenshots of the PC version looks good though, the trees and leaves look better than any version of the game thus far.

Wow. The Re;Birth 1 English dub is absolutely terrible. So is the dialogue in the opening. Does it get better?

That's the first time I heard the English VAs... I think they're pretty bad too. As for the dialogue, it doesn't really change from that.

I really like most of the English voice actors. Can't imagine playing without them.

Just kind of lazily done, probably. Whoever was in charge of that probably heard it's a port of Xenoblade, so they just grabbed some Xenoblade art and called it a day for now until official art comes through.

NISA's dubs are abysmal IMO. They're usually not even complete (except for Nippon Ichi's games, I think). Assuming you're okay with it, just switch over to the Japanese audio.

That's a good comparison. I remember not being able to listen to Lunar Silver Star Story cause of the voice-overs. Especially the main character. Of course, I hated Grandia's as well. Whenever I play, I use subs anyways.

Look on the bright side, at least you won't be hearing it much. I reckon less than 30% of the game is dubbed. I would play it in english if they bothered to dub all the events.

Wait so what's the consensus here. Is the damaged calender issue a one off or is it going to be like the DR 2 coins?

I haven't seen any other complaints other than the one. I would say you shouldn't worry too much if you don't want to open your copy.

I don't believe I can buy equipment yet or at the very least the shops don't sell it.  Grinding wise I may as well drop it then as grinding is too slow in that game.

Just find the stronger enemies to grind. There's at least one in each area I think.

 

If you just kill the weak enemies grinding will take forever. Just like with most RPG's.
