Atelier Sophie 2: Ultimate Edition is ~$56 on voidu after promo code FLASHSALE30. 

Right now they have some Koei Tecmo, IFI, and Bamco published titles matched to stream sale prices (before promo).

I really wanna pick up disaster report 4 on steam - I loved it on PS4 and I'm hoping it runs better on PC and I'd love to replay it. Wish it would drop cheaper though

Do you have a PS5? The PS4 version runs at a consistent 60 FPS on that. I don't have any experience with the PC port but I doubt it runs as well

Ahh I don't have a PS5 yet but that's really good to know. Maybe I'll hold off on the PC version then

Which ones, going through the first few pages, don't see much that wasn't cheaper elsewhere. Need something to combine wtih Digimon Survive.

EDIT* Holy balls, the NS might have more shovelware than the Wii did...

EDIT 2* Picked up a statue that was surprisingly at a good price with Survive... but am debating canceling the order because GS has been unusually bad in terms of sending gutted new copies or damaged sealed copies lately; would say that my miss rate with new games at GS is pretty much 1 out of every 2 new games.

Tales of Berseria zesteria and vesperia, nier automata, nier replicant and sword art online alicization, and digimon survive but not part of the b2g1.

I had 50 credit and Rakuten had the 12% cash back which ended up being 12 bucks after only 35 ish out of pocket. Plus whatever cash back on my card.

The first trio is not the same price as vesperia is 14.99, zesty 13.99 and Berseria 16.99 iirc. But close enough. The second trio were all 14.99. I was gonna grab her ni no Kuni 2 13 sentinels and south park fractured but they were 5.99, 6.99, 7.99 each but those were oos.

I got her a ps4 for Xmas so she hasn't played any titles for the system. So a lot of rpgs on sale are good deals for her anyway.

I only went through the first 15 pages.

I didn't expect Star Ocean: The Divine Force to drop to $39 at Gamestop since it wasn't really advertised at that price anywhere--I couldn't resist using my $5 monthly coupon on a PS4 copy.

Ah shit, I keep forgetting to check for cashback... 12% would have been nice, spent like $200 at GS over the past 2 weeks on non-gaming stuff.

Bought Fire Emblem Three Hopes. I already owned Valkyire and Star Ocean, and I'm waiting till Diofield gets cheaper on PC (Just because the controls would be much better on PC I'm assuming since it's a RTS/RPG Hybrid).

All of these $30-40 Square Enix and Sega published games are going to continue to fall.  I wouldn't play them right away so I'm pretty much waiting on all of them. SE in particular seems to have pushed out a ton of titles in the past few months.

Three Hopes is also part of the AWD 20% discount.. so I'm going to give it a try for $23. Also grabbed :switch: Digimon Survive with GS certificates.  Hopefully the performance is bearable on nsw?

Happy Thanksgiving to all cags!

Digimon survive is a visual novel / srpg. It'll run fine on the switch since it's barely low grade disgaea ps2 level at most.

I played it entirely in handheld mode Fwiw.

Yeah they'll be down to $20 in 3 months probably.

I'm wondering if people can vouch for the quality of titles like Harvestella, TO Reborn, and Star Ocean.

I recently finished Somnium Files: Nirvana Initiative. 

 
I also recently used the FFIX Moguri Mod on steam deck and really recommend that (without the music changes).

Can't speak on the Remake but I played the TO on the PSP and if you liked FF Tactics, you'll enjoy TO.

I didn't like the controls a whole lot on console, so I tried the demo on PC. It's somehow worse.

 

That said, I finished it, and sort of enjoyed it, but it felt like it never reached any of its potential. Play the demo if you're interested. If you enjoy it, the rest of the game isn't actually any different. It doesn't get any deeper on any aspects.

UTAWARERUMONO : MASK OF TRUTH ps4 launch edition is getting a reprint at vgp and will be on sale for 14.99 cad today. They didn't mention in the email but the vita version was also reprinted and is currently 49.99 cad. Not sure if it will get the price reduced once the sale begins.

On Twitter they said Vita version will not be on sale.  Also I think this is more leftover stock instead of reprint as Altus does not have the license any more.
