 It doesn't help NA due to Bamco normally encoding their Asian physicals with EU as a base.

To any FFXIV players, the Amazon promo started today. Nobody knows if it works on pre-orders yet (Especially since it has stuff way outside of the time window such as Persona 5 included). And sadly it doesnt work on anything digital

I miss playing and raiding in FF14 but definitely don't miss the elitist, yet shitty, playerbase.  It was really hard to find high-end raiders in that game.

Neptunia VII is $11.99 for Plus members: https://store.playst...AME000000000000

 

That's pretty crazy considering it came out only four months ago.

 

EDIT: Omega Quintet is $3.99, equally crazy: https://store.playst...AMEOMEGAQUINTET

Thanks for the heads up. Physical copies of Nepnep VII is still lingering around $45+. I own and played Omega Quintet, and it's going to be a hard one to drudge through. Reminds me too much of Fairy Fencer F..

Now I feel really stupid for buying Omega for $12 last time it was sale, thinking such Japanese title won't get discounted to much lower than that.

 

I didn't even enjoy the game that much, and such a pain to get the true ending that I gave up on it.

I payed about $20 for my physical copy. I want to play it and beat the game, but every time I fire it up, I look at all the games that are so much better that I just can't put the time into it. The same thing happens whenever I try and complete Fairy Fencer f. The game was very forgettable for me. All that's left is the grind leveling and I just don't have it in me.

 

Megadimension Neptunia VII, however, I'm quite excited to play when I get home.

Yeah I had to power through it to some degree, really wish the concert mode was more fleshed out, they are idols after all. At least it has Japanese voices. I don't recall it required a lot of grinding though, I beat the last boss without intentionally grinding too much.

If I thought Re;Birth1 was boring and way too grind-y (I know Neptunia games practically thrive on grinding), would I enjoy Neptunia VII?

It kind of bugs me that they are using Zelda: Breath of the Wild to move a bunch of NX units. The new unit might not otherwise warrant a purchase for a couple years. Nintendo also profits off their hardware. They haven't done anything to earn day1 supporters.  The game was also supposed to be a flagship title and a reason for buying a Wii U.

I feel lame for buying Omega Quintet for like $40ish....for IFI games, unless I want to play them right away...I will wait for sharp decreases in price. I know I will pick up Neptunia VII at least.

I started doing that after ReBirth 2. I snagged the LE for it and called it quits. So anything else released by IFI games gets put on the back burner for at least 2-3 months.

I can't remember the specifics of Re;Birth 1's difficulty and grinding compared to Megadimension Neptunia VII, but I do recall thinking VII was really easy. I don't think it required grinding. I tend to kill most enemies in an area as least once when I play normally, though.

I haven't played VII yet, but based on all the others, if you didn't like one I can't see any reason why you'd like the others.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I figured.

I've never played any of the Rebirth games, but I've played the original trilogy and gotten halfway through Neptunia VII, so I'll try my best to give some actual useful advice. It seems to have the least grinding in the series, mostly since the game is split into thirds, and even in those thirds, there's splitting of narratives for different characters. Makes it a lot less useful to grind and over level characters since you start with another character (with new reset stats) for every story transition. It also seems a lot more exploration-oriented and less of, "go back to the same dungeons and grind." Once you unlock the next stage, the EXP from the new area is significantly higher. I never made it to the last third of the game though, and since I assume all characters gather up then, there might be more grinding towards the end. But definitely a huge improvement over previous titles.

 

Edit: The series spans multiple genres, and the only thing in common is the story and characters. Unless you played the other games and absolutely hated Neptune, and dislike cute girls, I would say give it a try for $12.

Well, what they are doing is nothing new, and they have done it before. It really sucks for those Wii U owners who have to wait for what is likely the best reason they even bought the unit, so they can make it NX ready for launch, but what can you do?

 

I would think that most users will keep the Wii U, buy Zelda there and take a wait and see attitude on the NX. But most "N" diehards really seem to love the abuse they get, so they may buy the NX and Zelda anyways.

 

I still never bought a Wii U, as it never hit my $200 and under price point, but I bought one for my son a few holidays back, so I have access to one if need be. The Wii U was the first "N" system since the NES that I didn't buy at launch, or import before the US release, and the NX will be more of the same unless I see some super duper line up of launch games, which I just don't see happening.
