Pocket Card Jockey baby! I'd recommend waiting on Aegis/Trillion two below average games IMHO. EDF2 is worth that price though my hands cramp on my original Vita.

Trillion is really good if you like SRPGs, but don't want to go balls deep into Disgaea

I felt Aegis had some decently solid gameplay and found that rather fun and of course since its a tower defense game, it'll be repetitive as shit. It has plenty of negative parts too, but I wouldn't call it below average and I did enjoy it a decent amount. That said though, I can only recommend it at $20 or less because of lack of options/variety. I went on earlier in the thread on what I disliked about it.

 

Trillion on the other hand, if you didn't go in knowing it was a management game then you're probably in for a bad time. The game is really lacking in actual gameplay and all the pre-release English footage kind of hid that fact unless you went and looked into the footage for the Japanese release. I didn't entirely know how little actual fighting there was prior to its release either. First game in a while that I didn't fully know what I was getting into. I know when I listed it for the weekly release list I had trouble listing its genre and ultimately went with what media called it.

I'm thinking about picking up Ray Gigant, anybody here buy it yet? It's gotten pretty decent reviews considering how niche and different it is. I think it looks fun, is supposed to be kind of easy, but that's fine with all I'm playing right now.

Also how's Return to PopoloCrois: A STORY OF SEASONS Fairytale, I saw it on the eShop for $20, seems pretty cheap?

I've put a few hours into it so far and have enjoyed the storyline, and the characters. That's one thing that hurts a lot of games for me is not having characters that have personalities. I'd rather have a few main characters than random mercenaries you drudge through 100+ hours with that have no back story.

Best Buy has God Eater 2: Rage Burst Day One Edition now for us with only GCU:
http://www.bestbuy.c...0&skuId=5260000

Edit: My God Eater order has been canceled twice already, even the second time which I did over the phone so I don't know for sure about this or what's going on. Hopefully it's just me, and I can get it fixed.


Is this the version that has the previous God eater included or was that digital only?

Both, I guess? It comes with a digital code for God Eater: Resurrection.

The problem with Pocket Card Jockey is it's price. $7.99. Fuck that.

I maybe was mean saying Aegis was below average...it's repetitive but plays alright. I don't change my stance on Trillion though. The Trillion fights and practice fights are boring as heck and frankly the characters and the story really never got to me. It's like Aegis, very repetitive and all, though it has some charm. It's just a generic story filled with archetypes. I actually wish the Trillion fights weren't there at all. They were frankly garbage and when you figured out the strategy it was pretty much wailing over and over in an awful battle system to whittle down the health.

It looks like I was given a second Grand Kingdom Beta/Demo PS4 key that lasts until Tuesday. Any thread regulars interested in it? It's a 5GB download. The beta/demo consists of a tutorial mission, a normal campaign mission and then all you can do is play around a little bit with the (optional) online portion of it. Supposedly save data will carry over into the main game, but you're limited (in the demo only) to 3 battles per day on the online side. Online progress will reset however.

 

Possible the key may not work, but it's different than my original one.

 

EDIT: If there's no request for it by mid-morning tomorrow, I'll post it in the thread's PS4 community. Nitro looks like he grabbed one before I gave him mine, so it's still up for grabs.

 

EDIT 2: Code gone.

Do we know if God Eater 2 will have a CE or we're just getting that vanilla version?

Sort of, but I'm not actually sure I'll play it. I haven't played anything for almost two weeks.

Nobody has asked for my Grand Kingdom PS4 Beta/Demo code, so it's still up for grabs and will be posted in the PS4 community in several hours from now if none claim it.
 

Code gone.

 

How do I join the PS4 community?

 
Post your PSN ID asking for an invite and one of the three people with invite privileges should invite you. Info is actually in the first post about this. It's pretty dead for the most part (As it's easier to talk here), but I dump things there on rare occasion.
