I like the new outfit as well. Not a fan of some of these super pedo outfits on obviously underage girls in some of these games. Still planning to buy my LE day one.

 

Too bad so many of these JRPG purists are gonna lose their shit and protest the game.

I've never been much of a advocate for or against censoring. I'll enjoy the game either way regardless if the characters show a little more skin. I remember whenever I read how FFVI was censored for the west. I've played that game hundreds of times and never really noticed until I read it. I think most companies worry about game ratings much like movies worry about the same. PG-13 movies generally make more money than rated R movies. PG-13 means a wider audience can attend.

I wish Sega would just release this now with the bugs and put out a patch later like everyone else.

Don't worry you will get it with bugs on release

pretty dumb (in their heads) thus releasing colored vita's in japan and a blue one here.

IKR! what kind of idiot would support them by buying one of those newer models!

Woohoo! I'll be getting the vita version since I don't have a ps4. It's been awhile since I've imported a game. Still pondering miracle girls festival and now DoAX3. Might wanna check that Gundam game too.

yah i still use the original model, still looks better and i wish i new what that port was gonna be used for, but their was a time i was playing a couple of jp games and hated switching accounts, just went ahead and got the a bl2 model when it was cheap for my jp account, love not switching and even though i havent used either one in a awhile, at least i will have a backup when one goes down, just wish they would have released the colors one years ago instead of giving us the unused ones from other markets

i am also tempted since the last imported game i got was getting ripped of from that company releasing bullet girls as a best version with none of the dlc and just repackaging the vanilla versions, i am more wanting to maybe go for valkyrie drive but it will probably get picked up by xseed, not sure how much hype their is for miracle girls but it might get a best of version down the road, doa probably wont but unless your getting the collectors edition, i would wait till a price drop

That's what best versions usually are. They're the "Greatest Hits" versions of japan. Just a cheaper rerelease.

Finally got around to Dragon Quest Heroes (Mostly because I heard its an easy Warriors Plat, and I need to clear some of my newer backlog before I get swamped)
 
And wow, this game is really damn good. Probably the best DW Spinoff I have played. Really love the Monster Summoning System is has, adds a sort of tactical feel to the game and breaks up the mindless spamming most DW games fall to


I really want to buy this game after seeing someone streaming it. I'm trying to hold out for Black Friday though.

Players Summoning Tales of Zestiria Mods, Use Persona 3 FES Theme for Opening and More
 
 

And so it begins  :applause:  "cue maniacal laughter"

Can't wait till some cool battle mods get made.  Would be sweet if they managed a jade and sophie mod since those are already in game. Even better if they could pull past spells into this since zesty's spells are pathetic in comparison to older titles.  especially the revamped splash spell.  its garbage in comparison to xillias for peats sake.

Tales of Persona confirmed.

too late for that zabida already shoots himself in the head p3 style so its been confirmed for over a year now.  Would be sweet to put in some of the good tracks from p3 and p4 in.  I've always been a fan of the title theme for p4.

Ah, ok. I thought it looked vaguely familiar. I actually watched a few epps of season 1 way back when it was airing and liked it.. not sure why i didn't finish it. 

 

 

Thanks for the detailed response. I generally dont consider brightness/contrast in comparison vids unless the person capturing knows what they're doing because that can vary wildly. I did notice the texture deifference though.  Anyone know how much space it takes on PS4? Honestly thats the main reason im even considering ps3 version is to save space on the PS4 HDD.  Slowdown though is an issue so if the PS4 is free of it while PS3 has it then i may just do PS4. Besides, like i said, it lets me open one of my LE's. I need to start actually using some of these things

 

 

umm.. what? You sure its not your TV? That sounds excessive. Anyone else playing that can confirm/

I can confirm the game dips and lags frame rate wise at random alot.  Its very noticeable when you get into chained battles or the ones where knights spawn as you continuously kill them.  Super noticable when you have 5 or more enemies casting at the same time. The sound actually goes with whats happening to so you hear stuff a second or two before it happens on screen at times.

Quick question about Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC.

Anyone play it? Just as good as the first?

 

Do both the PC and Vita version let you carry over save info from the first one?

I have save files from the 1st one on PC and PS.

I might go PS Vita so I can play it on the go

 

Most likely I will double dip and get both to show my support and make sure we get more.

Yes. Only two things matter when transferring data:

1) Bracer Points - Amount acquired determines your bonus items you start with. They are given to you at some point in the prologue. These items can be acquired through the game normally, but the "Luck Quartz" isn't normally obtainable until quite a bit later into the game.

 

2) Estelle's level. Anything below 35 and she starts at 35. 36-39 she will start at that level. Finally 40+ she will start at 40. This isn't a big deal however since the game gives you exp based off of your level vs the enemies level. So you catch up to whatever level they want you to be at quickly.

 

I did post some links to saves if you want the "best" transfer.

Same. I recently grabbed a second one on Craigslist for $65 and it's certainly worth the ease.

Have they said how much the Add On pledge would be for a physical codex if they break 900k? Wouldn't mind pledging the extra now to help get them over the edge.

I honestly know very little about the series but the support is overwhelming I have to imagine it's worth the high praise.

$220 tier which is the Collector's Edition plus the physical Codex (not yet up) or $80 as an add-on.

Fashionable pants. All the 13 year olds are dressing like that.

Why are you paying so much attention to 13 year olds?!?

Damn I don't want to spend $150. On the other hand I do want that Figma I'm sure that Muvluv Kickstarter will unlock.

Resell the Digital Codes you get to recoup some of the cost.

 

$150 Muv Luv Collector's Edition gets you the stuff below


- Physical copy of Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative [PC or Vita] [Hand-Signed]

- Physical Muv-Luv Master Collection OST
- Physical Kickstarter Special Artbook [now upgraded to 80-page hardcover]
- Digital copies of Muv-Luv/Muv-Luv Alternative [PC] 
- Digital copies of Muv-Luv/Muv-Luv Alternative [Vita] / 
- Digital Muv-Luv Master Collection OST
- Digital Kickstarter Special Artbook
- Access to Backer Kit
- Digital Official Muv-Luv Codex
- PC copy of Photon Melodies + Photon Flowers
- Sumika Figma [if $900,000 stretch goal is met / $40 Value]
 Edit: The note you see on the $150 tier is them clarifying that that specific tier doesn't also come with a physical PC copy since you're getting the physical Vita Copy and vice versa

Sekai Project has started a new project (haven't seen anyone post this, if there is one...my bad!):
https://www.kickstar...thology-project

Narcissu 10th Anniversary Anthology Project
Help us produce the definitive anthology of the Narcissu series!

We're Sekai Project, and we've partnered with the creator of the Narcissu series, Stage-nana, to develop and produce the definitive anthology of the games. With your help we will be remaking the older games with new art, re-recorded voices,and we will also be creating an entirely new scenario!

We are in the process of producing 4 gamesas part of the Narcissu anthology:

Sumire - An entirely new chapter in the series.
Zero - The origin story of the 7th Floor
A Little Iris - A separate side story set in medieval Europe
Himeko's Epilogue - A short epilogue for Narcissu 2

What is Narcissu

It's a Japanese visual novel series with no choices that explores themes about terminal illness, and the relationship between the living and the dying. The games became known for their high production quality and touching story and were eventually downloaded over a million times worldwide. Numerous spin offs such as a manga, a light novel, even mobile apps were created, and it has been translated by fans into many languages including English, Chinese, French, and Polish just to name a few.

You can find the most recent versions of the games for free on Steam, also published by Sekai Project, as Narcissu 1+2 where it has a "Very Positive" rating with over 1,800 reviews and over 127k downloads.
---
Some visual novels and the 150k goal seems to be the possibility of other platforms but seeing how they have trouble with Sony doing vita games for them, I'm personally waiting for more info but another project
To look out for.

I'm still kinda dubious on you guys getting much for those Muv-Luv PC digital codes. PC CAGs are cheap as Fuck and we're spoiled and used to getting visual novels for like 25 cents each with with 7 other games in some $2 bundle. And they had better be Steam keys or no one here will give those codes the time of day.

 

I guess you might be able to find a more nichier PC visual novel crowd willing to pay a bit more if you look elsewhere. I still wouldn't expect to get console level prices for them though.

Might wait to see how close they are to 900k before I pledge for the $150 Collectors Physical VITA box.

All I want is the Figma!
