Oh gosh, now you guys have me worried about my 64GB card. It hasn't had any problems whatsoever in the nearly-two years since I bought it (Feb. 2014), but still. :???:

 

THats whats kept me from getting a 64gb card. All the sellers of it on AMazon are random 3rd party sellers which i dont trust for that kind of thing. Cheap defective chinese knock off PSP cards were rampant there back in the day. How do i know it wont be some fake chinese 3rd party bs if i get it there? If im snagging one i want it through an official retailer

 

Well, what a way to find out that PUR reward points f*cking  expire... 27.000 down the drain...

Do PUR Points expire?

The points themself?  Nope!

 

Another question...I didn't realize until today, but I need to find a Vita for a Christmas present.  I think I'd prefer the Borderlands bundle new, with the game and memory card.  Anyone have any deals on those that I'm missing?  Thanks!

 

Wait what the hell? Do they expire or not? Because i have a shit ton of them that i never use. I thought  they never expired? If not whats slep talking about?

PUR points never expire. You only lose them if your membership lapses.

i believe PUR points expire if you don't make a purchase using your pur card for an entire year.
So as long as you buy anything & checkout using your pur card once each year you are good.

You dont lose them if it lapses either.

 

I let mine run out and renewed after not having it for 2 months and I still have 28k

PUR Points absolutely expire. I don't know what the conditions are, but this is what I found when I pulled up my account on Monday:

Yes, they can. If there is no account activity posted to your account for one year (12 consecutive months), the account is subject to closure and termination, includin forfeiture of all accrued points. "Activity" is defined as making a purchase or a trade at GameStop or GameStop.com or making a purchase of Kongregate Kreds on Kongregate.com.

Stranger of Sword City LE up for pre-order, release 3/22/16 .  $59.99

Heads up on the day 2 calendar wallpaper on NISA... HERE.  I just wish these had a black background...I'd consider using them if they did.  Maybe I'll give them to my son to run through photoshop once they are all out.

 

Also Deamon Gaze LE is live (Cancel That, I refreshed and it's sold out) & Criminal Girls LE is live again.

 

Keep in mind Criminal Girls LE sold out and then showed up several times so if you miss one of these deals just keep checking the store page and refresh it regularly.  Seems like it was around noon CST yesterday that they went back in stock temporarily with the Disgaea 4 LE so all hope isn't lost.

 

NISA Store Questions:

 

IS the NISA store the only way to get a physical copy of Atelier Escha & Logy Plus (and it's only available as an LE)?

 

Also, if an order is over $75 but one or more of the items are pre-orders will the free shipping still apply?

Looks like an Etrian style (I know they didn't originate the style) first person dungeon crawler with perma-death.  I noticed a week or two back that GameStop had the stand alone game up for pre-order, but they currently don't have the LE.

I'm wanting to try out a dungeon crawler. Is Demon Gaze a good one on the Vita for a first time player of this type of RPG? If not, what's the best option on the Vita for dungeon crawler?

According to what I read, it's not only a good dungeon crawler but is VERY friendly for noobs to the genre as it steps you through everything and doesn't get too overly complex.  So a very good choice for a first time player.  It's probably where I'm going to start with the genre on the Vita before getting Dungeon Travelers 2 even though I've played more complex games.

 

Also note Demon Gaze is $20 used or new at gamestop.  It's $30 on Amazon for the standard version.  $40 standard/ $50 LE on NISA.

 

I got my copy at Gamestop for just under $20 after tax and all since it was used and most stores in my area had at least one copy.

I've seen this chart tossed around a good bit on the web. I'm relatively new to the genre as well, and Demon Gaze was recommended to me for my first. It's definitely enjoyable, and not super difficult or complicated. It definitely feels like a good way to get into the genre.

Unchained Blades is another fun dungeon crawler available on PSN. It's a PSP title, but fully compatible with the Vita.

I would recommended Dungeon Travellers 2 over Demon Gaze. If you can get past the moe capture screens, I think its a better game. I liked Demon Gaze for about 20 hours, but then the story got tedious and you start to realize that certain classes just don't work well. Dungeon Travellers has a good demo so I would recommend starting there.

 

I haven't tried any others on that list.

I could never get into Unchained Blades I did like Elminage Original even though it has one of the worst translations I've ever seen

Unchained Blades was awesome. I wish it had a physical release.

 

It's probably the best PSP DRPG.

I let my PUR Pro expire but I still have my points. I guess it's because I buy stuff from Gamestop from time to time

It's actually a great choice for beginners of the genre.

This may be a dumb question, but I'm setting up my new Vita TV. I want to link my PSN account, but it says I need to do a system update first. Is there no way to just link my account without updating?

 

May have found the solution:

Saw Dariusburst is available via Psn for Ps Vita & Ps4.. But the physical Ps Vita version on Play-Asia says in stock Jan.14 2016.. Did the physical version get delayed.? Did it sell out and that is when Play-Asia will get anothrr shipment..? Or was Jan.14 2016 the original release date for the physical ps vita all along. Any help appreciated...

Dungeon Travelers 2 is slightly more mundane in dungeon/monster presentation but is good. Lots of customization with a decently difficult game. I've lost a few times and needed to grind a few times. You can also class/level change at certain times and not lose levels so you can see which classes you want to go. I recommend doing this when you get the class changes to see what fits your playstyle (this doesn't account for the end game which I've heard can be brutal).

What everyone said about PUR points expiring after a year of not posting any activity is what actually happened to me :P

With GCU I haven't really found any reasons to buy games at GS

Physical version is Vita only and releases 1/14/16 in Japan only. Although I'm interested in the game, no way am I paying $40 for a digital only release in NA. Will wait for it to go cheap.

For the card size, I'd say it depends on how many Japanese games you envision yourself buying. Although if you're buying one right off the bat, you'll probably be open to getting more in the future.
For finding a good price, it's the same as with any product; just shop around.


Yes, you need a PS3 plus a vita game downloaded from your psn account and your computer. For your computer you need vitaupdateblocker to run as the middle man between the PS3 and the pstv. That's how I activated mine a few weeks ago.

Gamestop got rid of all of my years worth of points too cus I stopped buying there. GCU gives me gift certs all the time. Give GCU another point. GCU loves me, just like I love it.

I've only played a few (Elminage Original/Remix and Etrian Odyssey 4) and I thought it was too easy and stopped playing. I would recommend either EO before DG. There is almost no strategy involved. I played at least 20 hours I think.

I think you're doing it wrong if you find no strategy in EO.

All this talk of GS vs BB... no one store works out as the best deal for me.  There are no BB's nearby so returns are costly and just signing up for GCU would cost extra to drive the 90 miles round trip to make it happen.   Amazon often has great deals.  GS does too.  BB even occasionally has something as does Walmart and Target.  The main thing for me is paying the least possible for whatever game I'm hunting.  I don't care what store has it.  GS just happens to work out well for me finding games used and cashing those points back in to get other games mega cheap or free.

I think he was recommending EO over DG due to not believing the latter offers much strategy. 

 

I'm playing Dungeon Travelers 2 at the moment. I don't have anything with which to compare it, but I'm enjoying it. I've definitely been party wiped by a few bosses already though.
