I tried going back to back JRPG, but I always ended up giving up halfway through the second one, quitting for a couple months, coming back, and forgetting where I was and having to start over.  It's such a pain.

 

I got over it when I realized I have a a hundred JRPGs backloged and can just be playing 5 at once, switching between them whenever I get bored.

This past summer and fall unpowered through the platinum trophy for Witcher 3, followed by Hearts R, then Xillia and finished up with Xillia 2. I was a bit worn out after Xillia 1, but found Xillia 2 fun enough to play through. Finishing the platinum for that one burnt me out on the Tales series for awhile. I'm now working through Persona 4, but at a much slower pace.

In the past I would break up the RPGs with another genre, but most of the games I really want to play at this time are lengthy RPGs. Oh well.

Currently playing:   :vita: Steins;Gate, :wiiu: Xenoblade Chronicles X

Recently platinumed: :ps4: Witcher 3 :vita: Tales of Hearts R :ps3: Tales of Xilla, Tales of Xillia 2,  :vita: Persona 4 Golden (FINALLY!)

I'm all JRPG'd out right now, had to put nep nep & Escha/Logy on hold.

Since I got the DIVA games for PSP recently & FFE have been keeping me very busy.

 

 

What are you, a monster?

Playing through Gravity Rush...Nowhere near an RPG but does that count as a JP Niche game?

 

BTW...B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L port. If you liked it on Vita you're gonna love how it looks and handles on PS4.

Best Buy's pre-order system is so weird.....I just pre-ordered Arslan around 9pm last night and they sent me an email with the pre-order code at like 12AM before it even shifted to ready for pickup. I preordered Naruto Storm 4 2+ weeks ago and its available for pickup and no code yet.

Yeah, I don't know what is up with their system. I pre-ordered Naruto last Friday for shipping and ended up getting the pre-order code right after I submitted my order. Weird.

had no idea there was an Arlsan game let alone anime.  I have been reading it since it came out.

 

EDIT: reading the manga. did not know it was based on a Japanese novel (not a LN?).  I did know it was based off an epic poem however.

 

2nd EDIT: I'm reading the reboot manga whose author is the creator of FMA

Yeah I still haven't gotten my code for Naruto, and I already picked it up. I'm about to call the 1-800 number now.

I think Bandai Namco Games (no idea why they renamed to that) ran out of codes.  from what I recall for other BN games, this is not uncommon

Guess the PS Store updated then. Here's the free junk this week:

 

Megadimension Neptunia VII:

Challenge from Vermili Gym Delegate (Colosseum): https://store.playst...LC0000000000004

Cross Jammer (Colosseum): https://store.playst...LC0000000000005

 

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth (Mentioned a few posts up):

Mission Pack (PS4): https://store.playst...SDLCQUEST001101

Mission Pack (Vita): https://store.playst...SDLCQUEST001101

 

Nitroplus Blasterz:

Additional Color Variations (PS3): https://store.playst...OLOR00000000000

 

 

 

Technically there is one for Arslan too, but it is only downloadable/purchasable if you bought the game digitally. After four weeks, it will be purchasable for all at a price. I'll link it anyways:

I'm not sure, but why not just download the dlc from the PSN webstore? You'll get the dlc either way then :)

If Japan is to go by, free forever. However, why not purchase the free items anyway?

 

I do that for any DLC/themes that's free, and I am considering about getting in the future. So, that way, when I get the game, the DLCs are already in my account and I don't need to worry about it.

Yea, I went ahead and downloaded it just in case. When starting a new game, I have made it a habit to go to the PSN Store to check for free DLC,  but I'll just "buy" it to be safe.

Street Fighter V PS4 version will be allowing PS3 sticks to be usable, Alex DLC is coming March, can be bought with 100,000 in-game cash.

 

Also, I'll be hosting a lobby with this game every weekend on the PS4 Jpn Niche Game Community thing, I've been doing one for Nitroplus Blasterz, but I don't think too many people have that game, and it doesn't have an in-game lobby system either.

 

I think more people will get SFV, so it'll be fun to just play around casually, or train if anybody wants to. Again, I'll set up a party/lobby thing for it.

Sweet I'll be joining. I plan to actually try to git gud at this game, seeing as it will likely be the big thing for quite a while.

Awesome guys! The lobby thing is in the left most tab for the PS4 community thing, and I'm pretty sure anyone can set up a party/lobby, I'll also update the header and put messages up. Look forward to playing around/training/grinding multiplayer trophies with you guys! 

 

Gohastings has another 50% off used sale, noticeable niche games:

 

Blazblue Chrono Phantasma Extend (PS4) $50 /2 = $25

https://www.gohastin...u/297141188.uts

 

Deception IV: Nightmare Princess (PS4) $35 / 2 = $17.50

https://www.gohastin...u/297067476.uts

 

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix $15 /2 = $7.50

https://www.gohastin...u/292057493.uts

 

Evolve Ultimate Edition (PS4) $55 /2 = $22.50 (not really niche but good deal)

https://www.gohastin...u/298187370.uts

 

Keep in mind they have like 1-2 copies, so it'll sell out really quick, probably within seconds once someone sees this. Good luck!
