Amazon's price for Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore went down to $50. Amazon won't price match anymore so I'm gonna do a return/rebuy.

For some actual sales Denpasoft is having a Lunar New Year Sale (NSFW). Decent discounts across their whole collection. For the Steam Lunar New Year Sale Sekai Project has similar discounts. Mangagamer also some sales on Steam. Mangagamer has theirs in the sale too.

Gun gun pixies launch edition dropped to 29.99. I grabbed a mint shrink wrapped copy today at a local store

For those that don't have stock nearby, you can order the UK ver (same content, region free) on eBay for $32: https://www.ebay.com...me/202784057019

The box was definitely shopworn that I got, but I'm really only after the physical cartridge.

Saw some talk about rhythm games a few days back. I've been playing some DJ Max Respect, and its one of the best rhythm games I ever played, the aesthetics are phenomenal. I highly recommend it.

 

On sale for $17.49 for 2 more weeks.

I got the Atelier Dusk DX collection from Play Asia today. Opening it up in the cartridge dump tool showed it was a 32gb cartridge, and there were no downloads. It's coded for the Asia eshop so no claiming gold coins. The icons did however take over my US digital version of the game as opposed to creating a new set of the games.

DJ Max has always been a favorite of mine, going back to when I first learned about it on PSP.  I was surprised to see it in the sale page

Root Letter: Last Answer was a recent new converted to used title at Gamestop.  Switch is priced $19.99 and PS4 is $14.99.  Hopefully the stores didn't throw out the bonus items that came with it when it was converted to used.

In case you find the game without any bonus items out on the floor, it's a good idea to ask the cashier about them. Often they just leave the bonus stuff in a drawer & forget to give it to the buyer when the game sells.

Wow Root Letter: Last Answer crashed in price. Also I'm not sure how many people were clamoring for an enhanced version of Root Letter in the first place. Now I look like a fool for buying it early (the bonus stuff is pretty nice so try to find a complete copy).

I feel only slightly foolish because I found a complete used PS4 copy for $27.99 at a Gamestop during the B2G2 last month.

In case people don't check the eshop thread.. another cag posted a pretty solid deal on NSW tokyo mirage.  $41 digital code through walmart.  Have had the itch to replay this game and this price is good enough for me.

All links NSFW.

 

NekoNyan announced a release date and some announcements:

 

Blog Post 1 and Blog Post 2

 

Senren*Banka is coming out on Valentine's day. Cool but I wish it came out sooner. Making Lovers is after that and Hello Lady likely after that both being 100% translated and edited.

Clover Day's

Dracu-Riot!

Fureraba coming to Switch

IxSHE Tell

Kinkoi: Golden Loveriche

Riddle Joker

 

Thoughts on them:

Spoiler

 

Honestly NekoNyan have become one of my favorite localization companies with Mangagamer and all these announcements are right up my alley. All will be bought on release and I'll give my thoughts when I play them.

Grabbed this on amazon not too long ago new.  Would have snapped this up otherwise.

Yeah, I've been eyeing it for awhile myself, and finally got to this price point.

 

I probably would've picked it up at $19.99 to be honest, but this drop was like drastic, and didn't go down by the usual increments, so didn't even get the chance to consider it used at a slightly higher price.

 

Though, I probably won't get all the goodies from the used set when I go pick it up later today, but fingers crossed.

The Wonderful 101: Remastered Kickstarter

 

The Wonderful 101: Remastered will be released on Nintendo Switch, with versions for other platforms becoming available via stretch goals. We also plan to add a host of amazing extras as stretch goals are met, with the goal of making The Wonderful 101: Remastered the definitive depiction of our heroes’ exploits!

And the initial Switch version has already been funded.  LOL

 

As long as it gets to the Steam tier (which I feel like it will) I'll be happy.

 

EDIT: And the Steam version stretch goal has now been reached.  Shouldn't be long for the PS4 stretch goal to be reached at this point.

Never done kickstarter before but I will for Platinum. W101 is one of the few games still stuck on Wii U that I really wanted to play. If we can just get a Mario 3D World port on Switch I can feel okay about never owning one lol.

I want the LoZ ports and 3D World, but after that wont look at the WiiU ever.

Yeah literally almost every good game on the Wii U has been ported at this point. I had hoped but never expected Tokyo Mirage Sessions to be ported to switch. I really want to play Wind Waker HD though, please Nintendo

Oh and speaking of Platinum games, I beat Astral Chain yesterday. While initially the game didn't feel that amazing to me, the combat really expanded after a few chapters, and I overall really enjoyed it. I recommend checking it out

About how I feel as well, the game starts out slow but after a few chapters the combat really picks up. My problem is the rest of the game is really hit or miss, some things I loved and other parts bored me. The writing especially was pretty bland and you spend a lot of time talking to NPCs. Thankfully the combat was fun enough to keep me going, and the extra chapter you get after beating the story is entirely combat focused and really fun.

 

Just came out from Nintendo's financials though the game sold a million copies. I am honestly shocked but also really happy about it, hope we get a sequel that can work on the weaker aspects of the game.

I've been burned by too many Kickstarters.  I'll just wait for the retail release of Wonderful 101 and get whatever bonus it has that Kickstarters don't get.
