Star Ocean 4 has a much better/fun combat system than 5. Fact


Star Ocean 4 is a pretty great game. The complaints people have about it are petty for the most part.

I called my store since I am supposed to pick up from them. They said they are delaying all the pick up orders until the watches arrive. They said they will call each customer with a preorder, so I'll update CAG'ers as it develops. Keep your fingers crossed.

Edit: they said about 1-1.5 weeks

Yeah, it's been 2 days now, and no activity on the tracking they sent, WTF?!

 

So they are just creating shipments that they aren't going to send for a few weeks, and all that does is keep someone from cancelling, as now the order is technically shipped, but you can't change anything. So in reality, your order is just sitting there in limbo until the watches show up right?

 

Well at least they don't seem to have charged me yet, so I guess that is kind of OK, but this wreaks of some under handed GS tactic.

It's all good, as long as I get a watch. Normally I would have gotten extras to flip, but this time I just wanted to make sure I got one, so I order from a few different places, and I'm still not sure if I'll get one or not.

 

I think Askys will come through one way or another, but the waits no big deal for me, as I haven't finished the last game yet, so I'm in no rush for this at all.

 

Now for a lot of other guys, their going batshit crazy over this delay. Some guys even said  Fuck it, I'm just going to buy it digitally, and wait for the other shit to arrive whenever. I'm like, no way I would buy a game like this twice, just to avoid a few weeks wait.

 

I guess I was hardcore like that once upon a time, but now I could care less. I've got so many AAA titles in my backlog, that a game like this is just getting a place in the queue along with all the others, so it can arrive whenever.

Maybe I missed it, but does the physical release of Shantae risky beats contain every Shantae game? I was thinking about picking them up off the psn sale today

no

I Am Setsuna artwork, pre-order bonuses announced

I Am Setsuna is due out digitally for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam on July 19 for $39.99.

Those themes look nice at a glance, but I hope they put up some preview videos for them so I can see if they're dynamic and feature nice music to go with them.

 

I will be waiting on Star Ocean 5, looks decent to me but not a full price day one purchase. I would've been happier getting the PS4/Vita port for Star Ocean 2 if SE ever decided to localize that.

Was there a port of the first one, or just the second? I still have the PSP ports in my backlog, but wouldn't mind re-buying them on PS4 or Vita for easier playability. Maybe if 5 sells well there's a chance it will be brought over...

 

Oh yeah, there are a couple of Steam Summer Sale bundles that use their new dynamic bundle system and decrease in price if you own any of the games in it already:

 

JRPG Bundle

Metroidvania Bundle

 

They're not particularly good (Extra 15% Discount), but the only one I don't own in the JRPG Bundle is Disgaea and am able to get it for a few bucks cheaper than the Summer Sale discounted price if I decided to bite. Hopefully more developers/publishers switch over to the dynamic bundle system as owning games in the bundles often stops me from ever purchasing them.

The new dynamic bundle system is great. Already bought a game for less thanks to it. It's so much better then the old system where you just lost out. It's surprising it took so long though.

 

I tried that briefly at E3 and it seems cool but I was not expecting $40

Yeah, I was surprised as well. I would have thought this would have been a $20 or $30 game at most.

 

And speaking of Star Ocean 5, got my CE from SE today. Bigger than I was expecting, but a pretty nice set. I don't know how many were made, but my ID card was numbered 99XX (don't remember the exact number). I guess that's the number X,XXX/XX,XXX copies for this release.

 

That should be all the big releases for a while since ZTD is delayed. Time to go back to Tokyo Mirage Sessions :)

Same here. Based on the CE thread, it seems that anyone who ordered multiple ZTD Watch Editions should have a $10 Courtesy Credit for each one.

Touhou Genso Rondo (including the LE!) and Shantae for all three platforms are listed on BestBuy.com but not yet available to order for shipping. I hope Best Buy will start to carry NISA's LE's!

In this point in time I am just going to buy my watch from Aksys @AX can't trust either retailer to pull through on this even if my friend is a manager at GS who let me get it a day early.

You should just print out your order page, and then bring it to their booth at AX, and be like, "BITCH, YOU OWE ME A WATCH!"

 

And then depending on their response, be ready to flip some tables.

I'm enjoying the new Star Ocean, already have about two hours recorded. Not game of the year material, but a well rounded rpg I'll play through multiple times.

Well, I'll be there for AX, Square, though not for ZTD, but to see how quickly they'll sell out of it, and the watches. @_@

I'm really excited to pick up a Kara no Shoujo 2 Hard copy and Uchikoshi signing my ZTD like he signed my VLR last year.

Did you do anything to request the credit?  I've received no such notification from Amazon.

Nope, I just checked my credit balances and saw the $10 there. You might already have it.
