I'm still betting my copy of Cosmic Star Heroine gets delivered by Dec 2014.

lol, I backed that as well. At least in that case the dev has a proven track record, that's why it was the first game I'd kickstarted in a while and nothing since.

 

Noticed today when making some pre-orders on bestbuy.com there is now the Project x Zone 2 pre-order with a 10/27/2015 release date.

 

Link

 

Pass for me until I beat the first and I did enjoy the first....was just too long for what it was.

Ordered. Thanks :)

Just to put out some info I found, since I backed the Clannad and Grisaia kickstarters of Sekai Project (and we are sort of on the topic of kickstarters). They partnered up with another kickstarter project that looks very interesting. It's a visual novel/ dating sim called "No One But You." I backed the $10 tier for now.

Here is the link:
https://www.kickstar...you/description

I know some people would be interested in this as would I as I entered the realm of visual novels as well.
On its page the "This project will be funded on
Sat, May 16 2015 6:47 PM EDT"
So only a few days left.

Edit: Created by unwonton studios and here is some more info, copy and pasted

A Visual Novel/Dating Sim about Hideaki who has moved from his small village to a much larger town, Okutama. He struggles with everyday life, till he arrives at Wanko High. His new school. When he arrives he is presented with many choices and even some hidden secrets.
He discovers fate, and runs from it at the same time.
Will you run from it?
Or will you accept it?
Can you discover the hidden secrets?
Once you discover them Will you bury them, once again?
You will interact with the characters and find your path along the way. Will you find your way, even with the help of friends and family? Can you make the right decisions leading to happiness?


Thanks for the heads up on this! I like the art in this game, I put down a pledge on it.

Well, I guess that ends the waiting for a cheaper price on Black Rock Shooter. And, unlike PT, I'm going to sit here and watch the download to make sure it's successful.


Wait is Black Rock Shooter getting pulled from PSN? When?

No one knows, but could be any time. The parent company, Imageipoch, filed for bankruptcy.

Is Black Rock actually good, or just appealing because of the possible delist?

Idk, the anime is kickass though, and the manga series they have now is based off the game. Personally Mato is one of my favorite characters, and I heard this game was a good but has serious flaws, so I guess if you like the series enough to bear it's flaws, it'll be great, kinda like Neptunia. I don't even have a vita/psp yet but I brought it anyway, hopefully there's a way to redownload it when I eventually buy the system.

Download it to ps3 if you have that system.  If they pull it, you never know if they will pull download list links as well.

They won't. Unlike PT which was never a game in the first place (let alone purchasable) that was pulled forever, I have a lots of games that were pulled from PSN long ago and yet I can still download from the PSN. Examples:

 

Angry Birds  (PSP Mini Version) (Non-Rovio Published)

After Burn Climax

Magical Drop F (Japanese Import Game brought in to the US Store from MonkeyPawGames)

X-Men (Arcade Game with up to 8-Players Support)

The Simpsons (Arcade Game)

Marvel vs Capcom 2

Fate Unlimited Code (Yes this game was published in US in english and was pulled by Capcom)

R-Types

 

And the list goes on...(Got those games directly from my PS3 Download List as of right now with After Burner Climax, X-Men, Fate Unlimited Codes, and R-Types downloading right now to verify they indeed are still downloadable.)

I'll go out on a limb and say that imageepoch games will get a last time discount on PSN before they go out... if at all.

Perhaps NISA will snag the rights to the game since they published it in the US.

Well some thoughts on Moe Chronicle as I played it for about 2 hours yesterday:

 

1. As expected the Moe Chronicle translation is Engrishy and sometimes is translated too literally. It's generally understandable though and the game is all in English anyway.

2. The gameplay is basic but not too bad. The main character supporting his monster girls system in battle is alright. The monster girls get to use their skills, attack or cheer up the MC.The main character can power up, use items or support the monster girls. It's a bit slow but fun and their is some other quirks to the system like a partner system where monster girls can team up with monsters that join the team to sometimes use skills. Also there are skills that only work some of the time. These are basically passive skills and it could be cool constantly triggering them. I still haven't triggered the rubbing in battle.

3. The graphics are plain but good enough. I like the look of the 1st dungeon so far. Also the monster girls look excellent and are quite cute to boot. I started the game on hard, but put it to normal when my girl couldn't survive the first fight. I may change this to hard later.

4. You do the rubbing mini game to get monster girls to join the team (after destroying their clothes) and also for affection later. I'm not 100% sure of all the perks of affection but for a bit of affection you can change their clothes with gift clothes you gave them. I don't mind the rubbing mini game since it doesn't occur very often. It is way easier to get the ultra rubbing mini game and in this one all their clothes disappear and they have hearts covering up their private parts.

5. Overall it's a slightly boring but good enough dungeon crawler. It's pretty fun and the story is OK (guy trying to control his desires and monster girls attacking humans). I would recommend it if you want a dungeon crawler and don't mind the ecchi stuff, as many scenes and dialogue along with the rubbing game are suggestive. Heck that red seal or something pretty much releases his coins after you strip a monster girl fully and wants all the panties in the world. I really hope IFI releases it eventually in the states but I wouldn't hold my breath for it. If it will come it will likely be after Neptunia VII i'm guessing.

Really? Awesome.

The only BRS thing I've played/watched/read is this game, and I didn't like that the other stories were totally unrelated to it.

As an action RPG, it's hard to imagine it not making it out here nowadays.

I hope so, the screenshots look like my dream crossover of Lost Kingdoms II and Folklore.  If the premise is even remotely the same, day 1 CE for me!

If its the remade versions I'll happily buy it. Otherwise unless it has DLC at a reduced price I dont see the point
