So would it be safe for me to skip 999 and just play vlr.?


No, it's important to play 999 first. Not strictly necessary, but it will be better for it.

That's what I did.

 

All the repeating dialogue in VLR made me never finish every route since it got old. 

 

 

Danganronpa is the better series.

Don't listen to them. 999 is a must play game.

Woah, I appreciate all the Gematsu links in this thread~

 

I was hoping by some means I'd be able to get a physical copy of Dragon Quest Heroes for cheap today. I don't wanna pay $40. =x Missed the $20 Amazon deal for the digital version, but I prefer physical, so I probably wouldn't have bit anyway.

I think DR has gone to pot after DR1 and I still think that's not controversial at all. It has yet to irritate me half as much as 999 did.

Dec 7 Only

It sounds like all these will be "while supplies last".

Wonder if they typoed Dec. 4 deal because its already on sale Dec 1-7.

 

Edit: Looking at the Blog post better, I think The Witch and the Hundred Knight Limited Edition was a example to show how much of a price drop and not a sale thru Dec 1-7.  So only Dec 4 will have it.  But Disgaea D2 seems to be thru duration while supplies last.

 

Also found another error from the blog post.

The Guided Fate Paradox Limited Edition (Vita) < isn't it PS3, don't think they made a new game just for this sale.

I'm a bit biased due to the order I played them in, but I'd recommend playing 999 first. A fantastic series of games, but if you are hesitant about the genre and don't want to spend time exploring the different routes, definitely go with a spoiler-free guide while you play.

You're right on the GFP.  I should have known better since I own it.  Changed and thanks.  You're probably also right on the Witches LE, but I'm going to leave that one because it could also be that NISA just doesn't have anything else to fill that day.  They seem to have a lot of those Witches LEs though. It's just not very clear since it seems it could go either way from how NISA has it on the blog.

TL;DR: We have to import our butt battles and read moon runes (who am I kidding, who's reading anything in this game).

I'm going to say I haven't felt this feeling watching/reading/etc media entertainment in a while. I feel a strong disgust after playing Euphoria. I'm only 2 endings in but the story, characters, setting really set off my disgust meter. There is an interesting story underneath, but playing through it really could get to you. I hope the true end is as good as I've heard it is. I'm actually skipping the other 2 routes and going straight to the true end.....I really don't want to spend more time with this game than I have to. I can tell easily say that this game is a homage to 100 Days of Sodomy.

 

I may give a final thoughts after finishing said route with no spoilers of course. I just know the route leading to said true route really pushed my disgust meter, though it's interesting and all. Not for the faint of heart. I can't wait to palate cleanse my gaming with Neptunia or something afterward haha...

Is sword art online hollow fragment for the vita for $10 on PSN good? I like physical copies, but never imported before and it seems more expensive to have. Of course, I will be getting lost song physically, thank goodness that came over here physically. Just wanted to know people's thoughts on it. :D

We had a nice gentlemanly discussion about this and censorship a few pages ago. On the plus side, there will be an asian version that has english subs so no moon rune reading necessary.

Haha, with how excited you were about it, didn't you at least see the hentai already? I thought that would've prepared you for this.

More than likely, this is just stock that was held back for damages and lost orders. They normally have a few releases scattered over a wide margin of months. This is probably the last of the last, so if anyone wants any of these items, especially the older ones, don't miss out. As there is a good chance some of these won't be seen again, while others may.

It never went up at all along with Disgaea 5, Persona 4 Ultimax, and Persona Q from what I saw.  I just got off phone with support and they aren't authorized to know anything about lightning deal info so he could only submit a ticket to Lightning deal department to check into it.

Everyone has weighed in and said its a good game, and the PS4 release was the one with the corrected Subs. I will say that the "Engrish" subs didn't deter my playing and I still enjoyed the game all the same. It has a MMO feel to it and now that its been out for some time, it should have a decent FAQ for you for all of the trophies.

Okay thanks guys and I would get the PS4 version, if I had a PS4 haha. But with the feedback from you guys, this game has now been bought and is being downloaded on my vita. For $10 I agree, its a good price and better spent than on some other games priced at $10.

Does Jstarsvictory+ have some kind of story mode? Is it like that Jump ultimate game on the DS? Or more Dragonball esque thing.
