Reviews are quite mixed and it's an SRPG.  Seems to fall mostly on the positive side so I bought it digitally a ways back when it was on sale.

where are you looking? cause it wierd as hell it shows 775 on the rewards with the other cards but since it set as my goal card if i go to that area it shows 475 but when i click redeem and verify it then goes to my order history instead of processing.

 

damn im thinking maybe my goal one is stuck showing the old unupdated price and maybe the rewards page is the new updated price? i sure hope not

Shows 475 everywhere to me.  In the rewards list, in the little drop down, when I go to it.

I ordered a "new" copy of Mind Zero about two weeks ago, already at that price then. When my package arrived, I discovered a used copy in a replacement case plainly marked "Pre-Owned". GameStop Customer Service declined to make it right stating they were sold out of new copies and instead suggested I take the game back along with my packing slip to any local GameStop for a refund, which is what I did.

We can't keep letting GS get away with this!

 

In other news, there's a new $5 kongregate coupon so you can use that to knock some vita games at gamestop to $15 or less. Like P4G or FFX/X-2. Or even the aforementioned Mind Zero should go down to $11 after coupon.

Hey guys, sorry about asking so many questions lately, I'm still really new to the Vita business.

 

Does anyone know if the bonus soundtrack CD for the Vita version of Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax, if that's the same as the one for the PS3?

 

Also, I haven't heard much about this game "Deemo The Last Recital", just saw it on Playasia, and it's supposed to release soon, and it has an English version, anyone have any opinions on it?

 

And when Playasia lists a game as an Asia version, and it's cheaper than the Japanese version, even though it's still in Japanese language, is there a reason? Like is the Asia version inferior, or bootleg, or is it just the brand? It will still work with multiplayer/trophies right?

 

Thanks a lot!

Sounded great until you got to the price...  That's like four Vita TVs these days.

I think it's worth the price -- but it's a use case question. My gaming is 50% Vita native, 30% Remote Play, 20% on PS4. If Remote Play isn't a great experience, I end up getting so little value from my PS4 that it wouldn't even be worth having one. So I've invested in the R2/L2 grip, a travel router, and a PS TV. I take all of them with me so I can get the best experience possible from the road (depends on whether the hotel has a hardline and where it is vis a vis TV). I also used eBay bucks to get XBox-one tipped thumbstick extensions. Between the trigger grip and better range on the thumbs, Remote Play is leagues better than stock.

 

Anyway, I'd recommend the R2/L2 grip to anyone who is using a Vita from Remote Play at home a lot because a spouse or significant other is using the TV. PS TV at home actually makes no sense to me unless it's being used for PSP games and PS1 classics on the same TV as the PS4. I'm probably going to dump my PS TV and get a second Vita Slim -- dedicate one to Remote Play and never take the grip off so the damn thing won't break, use the second one for Vita native stuff while commuting and traveling.

 

I know affiliate link stuff is frowned on, but I can give a Zenmarket.jp link and promo code to anyone who'd like to import the grip. Using both will get you a 500 Yen credit to apply to any order shipped to US by December 31. Grips run between 3500 and 4000 yen with shipping in Japan and ZenMarket's per item fee, +1200 yen to ship EMS (express) to the US. At current exchange rates that's ~$37-38 with the promo. You could shave $3-5 off by using slower AirMail service.

fighting climax soundtrack is the same.

 

Deemo is on mobile, so you can try it out. This version of the game is confirmed to have a different story compared to the Mobile version of the game, fully animated cutscenes, Character Voice-Overs, a 2 Player Mode (Possibly a VS.), a Duet Mode, and a whole new collection of songs to play.

 

When it says Asia version, it means it's generally released in Hong Kong, Philippines, China, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam. Basically, in the Asia territories. Why would it be bootleg? Why would it be inferior? It's just released through Sony Asia. You have Sony USA, Sony EU. Sony Japan, and Sony Asia. 

 

Sometimes, the Asia version is the only way to get an Eng Retail Copy that we normally wouldn't get like Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment, Moe Chronicles, Dokuro, etc.

Anybody preorder EDF for vita and looking to play online?

I did the preorder during the cyber monday preorder discount on Amazon.  Not sure how fast they'll ship it since I bundled it with other stuff to get the regular free shipping.  I'll cross the bridge of deciding to play it online sometime after it shows up and i play it for at least a few days.  I just need to decide how much I like it and want to play online.  Also Trails of Cold Steel should be shipping to me around the same time and I really want to play it.   This month is just going to be crazy... Yakuza 5 came out today and I need to get that downloaded to my PS3 as well.

They both work. However, beware that multiplayer will more than likely be restricted to that region of players only.

For hating a company so much, it sounds like you end up there quite often. Just stickin' it to the man, right?

 

Considering probably 80-90% of the games i buy from them are backups that get returned/swapped for the  inevitably damaged BBY orders i dont see whats odd about that at all. Honestly im kinda surprised they havent done anything about the massive amount of returns i do

This actually reminds me. Can you just cancel a preorder on Play-asia? I didn't pre-order Deemo because i wanted more info on the LE before deciding what to get. But maybe it would be better to get an order in just in case for now if i can just cancel it later

Stayed up till 2 in the morning for nothing. I'm guessing NIS forgot to put a limit on the orders and some jackass bought all the Firefly Diary stock in one swoop.

Gotta rant...

 

So htoL#NiQ... NISA Store was to have the LE in the sale today for $30.  They update at midnight pacific (2am my time) so I manage to be there the moment it went live to get my order in.  I had already made an account and had my shipping/billing address entered to hopefully speed the process.  The site is so screwed up I couldn't both stay logged in to my account and check out.  I tried for 30 minutes to get checked out even by just creating a new account on a different email address and got all my info in and hit the button to check out and nothing.  No dice and sold out in that same time frame.  At one point I had 2 in my cart being logged in and I tried to remove them and then add one (after other ways failed of just removing one) and ended up with 3 in my cart.  So screwed up that site is.  I've never been so frustrated trying to buy something.

 

I think this is a healthy thing for me.  A wake up call to buying too many games anyway and the realization that while I didn't intend to have a complete collection I liked the idea enough to try and get these obscure rare games as they popped up in case I changed my mind.   I felt the urge to purge afterwards so I went ahead and hit Amazon and cancelled my EDF2 and LoH Trails of Cold Steel preorders.   I still want Trails of Cold Steel but I can wait for it.

 

Anyway I think this marks the end of my rash of vita purchases for a while.  I want a couple DS/3DS games ... mainly to finish out my Prof Layton collection... but outside of that I was pretty much done until Fire Emblem Fates SE dropped anyway.

 

On a positive note... Bastion is $2.85 on the PS4 and crossbuy with the vita... so I got something on the cheap.

I understand your frustration, except in my case I have an existing account and was trying to get the limited edition of Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection. I already own a regular copy of the game mind you, I just wanted the L.E. mostly for the art box. Got to take into consideration that they likely had no more than a hundred copies of any of these games in this sale actually available to begin with.

 

In other news. Used one of my Cyber Monday purchased 25$ off pre-owned GameStop certificates yesterday at a local store to snag a the only copy of Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited in a hundred mile area, which made it $9.53 with tax. That was $25 off with the certificate and an additional $1 off with my PUR card ($26 pre-tax savings), making for a total taxable savings of $27.56! :D/

I was ready when it went live too. I tried on my laptop and it just hung at checkout. So I ordered it on my desktop after and it said order successful but I have no email or anything in my order history. I do have a pending charge on my card but who knows with how the site was acting when I ordered.

I feel you on the backlog, I think all,of us on cag probably have more games than we can realistically expect to play. It feels good to have them though. Every year around this time I do a little cleanse to make some extra room but that space fills up quickly.
