Is Persona Q2 a direct sequel to Q1 (i.e. do I need to have played Q1 to understand Q2)?

No they're almost entirely separate from what I can tell

The Limited Run Switch and PS4 release of VA-11 Hall-A is up for preorder today, looking forward to getting a physical copy. I know some of you are fans of the game (me too)

I can never remember if there’s anything I want to get from Play-Asia whenever they run these deals.

best to just look for affordable backlog editions, i always forget either a code or the coupon, not really great deals on alot of their stuff but they have stock of some titles that might have been difficult to import from other sites

Speaking of play-asia coupons, someone on one of my facebook groups made the remark that... if you read the fine print behind the coupon, you're absolutely NOT supposed to share them! (point #4) Even a vague threat of cancellations. So I suppose this means they can trace the coupon code to your order number and then to your account? And potentially lock up your account?

 

Just sharing what I learned the other day -- don't shoot the messenger here.

Years ago, someone mentioned a CS rep reaching out about it when they used someone else's code. It wasn't a "how dare you, we're cancelling your order inquiry" but more of a "we don't understand why you're using someone else's coupon" inquiry.

 

So they can trace the coupons, yes, but I don't know if they'll do anything punitive about sharing them. It'd be news if they did but you never know.

Looks like it was expired anyway. Thought it was common to share their coupons.

I doubt Playasia would ban over coupon sharing. The whole point of the coupon is to entice the customer to buy more stuff. If the original person or another uses it Playasia still gets its money instead of no one using it & not getting any revenue.
If the coupons were stackable or abused in a way not intended sure, but that's not the case.

just read a story that Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2 combo pack for SWITCH has been listed the same greek store that leaked the AC Black Flag / Rogue ahead of it being publicly unveiled.  Hopefully this comes true as I would rather play it on Switch but the $80-$90 import is not in english.  Also, I hope they further optimize it.

I guess not enough people showed interested in Dusk trilogy physical when they did that survey a while back

I will still get them as I never got the plus versions of these but probably wait for a sale then, already have them on PS3.

PlayAsia  has the Asian version up for preorder it comes with English/Japanese Audio & English subs.

All 3 games in the cartridge.

Play Asia is offering some kind of English version of the game for Switch, though it says "Please ensure the Nintendo Switch console is connected to the internet to start the software update for English version" which kinda sounds like it won't have all the games on the cartridge. 

 

I'm on the fence about it, but have a copy preordered with a streamer's 5% off coupon code, which comes out to an additional $4.50 off and no tax. Also shipping is free through the 9th.

Maybe the english voices are a download? I know a lot of games in the west have had japanese voices as a separate download. I prefer japanese voices for atelier series anyway so if that's the case it wouldn't be an issue for me.

That's how I took it, you download the English patch.

PlayAsia also confirmed all 3 games are in the cartridge.

They could include Ayesha on an 8gb cartridge and the "Update" would be the other two games. Yes you get all the games with a single cartridge, but the data isn't there. Kinda like Final Fantasy X/X-2 on Switch.

They confirmed on Twitter that all 3 games on the cartridge, which seems to be more common for Asian releases.

The Music DLC pretty much doubles the game data size on Vita so that's probably what they cut to fit it on a single cart.
