The only endings I liked in Conception 2 to were Feene's and the Pink Haired Girl's.

Vita though honestly the game is pretty average. If you really want a dungeon crawling game though....go for it.

 

 

Same for me. Finished it, but didn't enjoy it very much. Game felt really boring and just nothing special about it. 

And +1 on Vita. I never played the 3DS one, but there doesn't seem to be any reason to get that one over the Vita. 

 

 

Vita fourthed. Like others have said, it's pretty "meh" as a game, though.

Well, it doesn't matter if it's any good when It's only going to be backlogged. I just don't like double-dipping across multiple systems/handhelds.

Hey guys, this isn't much of a deal, but Playasia's weekly specials have P4D CE for $17 off their price, so $73, and IA/VT Crystal Box for $19 off, so it's $96.

 

P4D CE $73

http://www.play-asia...ition/13/708vj9

 

IA/VT Crystal Box $96

http://www.play-asia...l-box/13/707len

 

As usual the shipping is bound to be expensive, but there are free pick up options for a few chain stores in Asia.

It's been getting a surprising amount of word-of-moth publicity for an import game, interest is probably driving price up. Didn't the XSEED VP praise it in his recent interview? That might have something to do with its spike in popularity.

I had no idea what that is. While I looked up a review, someone snapped up that last one. Oh well.

The joke was that the character has no boobs, thus making it a normal mousepad.

I've not played it, but I believe the only way to get a physical copy is by buying the asian version which was bought up quickly and has been selling for around $100. Looks like that ebay seller has been selling them every now and then for a couple months cheaply. Guess I just had eerily perfect timing checking for it :shock:.

Nice. It goes to about $14 with the cheapest shipping option and tax, but considering the next closest place is half an hour away I think that evens out. That version of the game is FAR better than one in the Atelier Arland collection they're selling for $40

 

E: $12.32 thanks to that code below.

so kickstarter will be in the works for Snatcher reboot?

Fixed that for you.

:pray:  :pray:  :pray:  :pray:  :pray:  :pray:

 

 

Also for Atelier if you use the code cag16 plus your powerup rewards card you can get it down to $7.55 before shipping and tax.

For what it's worth, I was able to upgrade my Bloodstained tier from $150 to $175 after its intial Kickstarter campaign was over. I'm assuming it works the same here.

Thanks for all the help with this stuff. I think I'm gonna start getting more involved with Kickstarters that go about things responsibly. It makes me really happy that VNs seem to keep gaining more interest on vita (and just in general) in the west. I hope other companies are seeing this and start giving us more of them.

(I really hope that new version of Narcissu gets a vita version since they said they're "looking into other platforms")

I so agree^, Until Kojima returns to Snatcher, I could care less where he goes or what he does. I've had enough MGS to last me 10 lifetimes, and not enough Snatcher to fill a thimble. Snatcher is Kojima's best unplayed game, and easily one of my top 10 greats of all time. I've played and finished at least 5-6 times just in recent years alone.

Will believe that when I see remastered SO 1 and 2...and maybe the old DQ games redone outside of the pesky Android platform.

 

Speaking of SE, Logging in a little over an hour of Dragon Quest Heroes; it was pretty fun and fairly funny...too bad I was too tired to laugh by the time I got to loading it (read: late night and late to work next morning)

Second Evolution is coming to Vita which is good enough for me.

Yeah SO1 is pretty good too (not as good as SO2 imho still my favorite from that series). I hope for a re-release like SO2 is getting esp since S-E doesn't want to put it on PSN.

DQVIII needs to be ported to Vita and it is a  Fuck ing travesty that Square-Enix chose the 3DS instead.

Is this a product of the mass migration of NIS employees to Idea Factory? Looks exactly like Disgaea.

That's one less candidate for the December localization announcement.

It even got ported to Android...sans the voices and (orchestrated) music too. Got excited when I first saw it and then gave way to disappointment.

Apparently the "sexy" costumes from Fatal Frame caused backlash in Japan and that's why they were censored:

The article is from Kotaku, though, so take it with a grain (or bucket) of salt.

I would have preferred sexy costumes for the ghosts.

The fact that the outfits kill the scary/horror atmosphere was a big bonus for those outfits. I don't like scary games, but Fatal Frame always seemed kind of interesting even though it is scary. If you don't like them they're just extras though - don't use them. My complaint would've been that you actually have to beat the game once without them first to unlock them. :P

 

Corpse Party is sort of the same. I'm worried I won't like it, but it seems interesting enough to at least try.

So I'm just here chillin' (mundane work, lol) to the Tales of Zestiria soundtrack. I gotta say, while it seems Motoi's music is still not done by a live orchestra, it seems to have a lot more fidelity and a "live" effect on it making it almost convince me it's not a sound bank. Whatever magic they put to it, it gives more life and soul to the music that's still signature hit-n-miss Sakuraba. The hits so far hit harder than most of his other hits in the Tales scores so far. 

 

Have yet to hear Shiina's part of the music but I'm sure it'll be good...just like his Legendia score and his Ace Combat contributions. Wonder what happened to Kaz Nakamura? His extra work on Hearts R is amazing.
