does anyone have any familiarity with Dark Horse's artbook quality?

I'm not really an artbook collector, but my FE:Awakening hardcover by Dark Horse is really nice.

 

The only other book I remember buying during the recent gen is the giant botw deluxe piggyback guide.

Funny story now, though at the time, was fairly angry story.

I went out to get my package earlier, and I noticed that the package was in a plastic bag for some reason. I've never seen a package shipped with a plastic bag on the outside loose like that, sometimes seen it wrapped around tightly outside of the package, but not just loose.

As I got closer, the box looked wet all over. The postman told me a box of hand sanitizer exploded onto my box along with a ton of others, and unfortunately, this was the best they could do, and to call them if there's an issue.

Luckily, the way the person packaged everything, all the contents were towards the center of the box, rather than touching the side, so looks like I avoided any major damage, albeit, all the contents smells like hand sanitizer now...

Covid-free delivery. So thoughtful of them.

Does anybody know what's going on with Umihara Kawase Fresh for PS4? It's supposedly coming for NA region, but it's been out on other platforms for a while now.

Sadly, every package I have received like that always end the same way, with the contents damaged, as I get about 1 package like that per year on average. Normally damaged by rain on a loading dock someplace, then put in a plastic bag with USPS's "better luck next time" letter included as the final cherry on top!

Ok probably not the place to discuss it but I figured here would be as good as anywhere.   If I was to do online selling what would be the best place to list them on.  One poster happened to mention in another thread regardless to require a signature on the package. And I likely would want whatever insurance option.  But I noticed some of the games in my collection go for between 80-300 bucks complete/new and sealed.  And I'd probably rather have the money than keep some of them for replays down the road and what not.  Outside pokemon, fire emblem and paper mario anyway.

I think they decided to just give her a cauldron instead, lol.

Forums have always been a great place to be honest, but if you want more activity, I'd say give Resetera a try, assuming you have an account there, as it's more active now ever since the lockdown, so you'll probably get bites fairly quickly.

Are you in any Discord groups, Twitter groups, or other online social spaces that have trading too? Might be a good option as well.

Of course, eBay is another option, but it will be hit or miss with the way it's set up nowadays for sellers.

 

And of course, if at all possible, try to get it friends and family if possible, but if it's a buyer you don't know as well, regular payment will be the case for the vast majority of them.

I was surprised to see that amazon still has xenoblade chronicles definitive edition definitive works available.

They also have a used-acceptable at amazon warehouse for cheaper though you might not want that if you want it for your collection.

I've sold a ton of games on eBay since quarantine started. They sell easily, but don't underestimate your monthly eBay bill :(

 

Don't underprice your shipping fees and don't feel bad about listing slightly higher than your desired prices to offset the 10% sell fee. Everyone's doing it.

 

Nothing's stopping you from listing slightly higher on eBay AND listing at an appropriate price on facebook groups.

 

Take GOOD PICTURES, show every smushed corner, slight rips, scratches, etc. And even with the smoothest transactions you'll still have to beg for positive reviews two three weeks later :(

The Japanese Nintendo Direct Mini ended up being WAY better than the American one. Along with Cadence of Hyrule DLC and the two MegaTen announcements, it featured trailers for Sakuna and Atelier Ryza 2, as well as mentions of Fairy Tail and Captain Tsubasa.

Nintendo's website is listing Sakuna with a November 10th release date:

Atelier Ryza 2 should launch worldwide this winter:

Ryza is also now on sale ($36) on steam.

 

Way more dlc for this title than I realized.  Any of it worthwhile?

I'd like to know that, as well. The season pass finally went on sale on Switch (but only down to 44 from 55), though I'm only interested in the character stories (which aren't even voiced). Are any of the side stories worth the price? Or should I just watch them on Youtube?

Nocturne finally getting a remaster. Been waiting forever. I'm More excited about that's than SMT 5, I think. Especially since it's not a Switch exclusive.

Yeah, I was about 4 or 5 hours into my playthrough on PS3 before I got sidetracked by other games and I never ended up getting back to it. Guess I will just get the remaster instead now lol. Can't wait.

Oh? When and where was this confirmed? I normally collect for PS4 but I'd be torn here. I think I would want SMT3 on the same platform as SMT5, which looks like an Switch exclusive.

SMT5 is Switch exclusive, Nocturne is coming for Switch/PS4. Pretty much every news site is reporting it this way, e.g. Crunchyroll.

 

I'm slightly torn on not getting it on Switch, but given 3 out of 4 sets of my Joycons drift, I will probably buy it for PS4.

On that note hopefully the new character isn't as awful to obtain as dante was.  I gave up because I couldn't do it.

Cleaned out my closet, and in the midst of digging through the boxes I found my Ani-Mayhem cards from back in the day.

 

Basically Magic the Gathering for anime fans. ;D

Anyone here remember Ani-Mayhem, or played it from back in the day?

Never heard of it but I saw some Project A-ko cards in there, that's cool.
