My backlog is too strong so I dont mind not having ZTD for a while.

I know, right? I'm playing Tokyo Mirage Sessions and plan to play Grand Kingdom next and those two just came out last month. Plenty more besides that to play.

 

And the game has been listed for (at this point) over a year and the last game came out 4 years ago. What's another month? Amazon probably just doesn't want to spend money shipping out two pieces of one item that wasn't their fault. It was wrong of them to say otherwise, but I can understand why they wouldn't.

Another month is a big deal once you accidentally read a spoiler somewhere. Considering the main appeal of the game is the story, having that spoiled pretty much kills the main reason to play it.

That's actually a fair point I hadn't considered.

What are you talking about?  Nobody has ever said Amazon damaged the watches.  The watches were apparently damaged in transit from China or wherever they were made and at some point, they came into Aksys' possession prior to being shipped out to the distributor.  After all, Gamestop didn't get their allocation either.  Aksys also said that they had the trade show watches manufactured on an expedited basis and that they were a separate batch from the damaged ones.  As such, none of what you said is accurate and it doesn't excuse very poor handling and logistics on the part of Aksys. 

Oh, apologies. Everything I've heard about this is quite hearsay.

So, I've been playing a ton of Future Tone. So far I'm in the top 100 for the 6.5, 7, and 7.5 star survival master courses. Today, I was at the cusp of getting knocked out on the 7 star course since i was #100 but I was able to get a better score.

 

Also got my first extreme perfect, but it was only on a 7.5 star chart. Extreme can be brutal since you need 95% or above to get an excellent instead of a 90% on the other modes. It makes trying to keep those holds going for as long as possible much more important.

 

Sorry to hear about everyone's Amazon and ZTD issues. I decided to pick up a stand alone copy at Gamestop. I never actually saw the CE when it went up for sale a long time ago.

Now I wait and see if there'll be a Chinese physical release. If not, then I wait for it to go on sale. Ray Gigant was my leaning lesson.

Here's hoping this game is good.  I quite liked the first 2 seasons of the anime.


Currently on the look out for a decent price on Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness.

It's weird

 

First they said I was getting my delivery today, then I got another update that not until the 11th, and now not until the 13th. I'm guessing they're going to constantly delay it until the watches come in and ship them together.

 

I don't mind the wait personally because I'm nowhere near done with 999 and I haven't even started Virtue's Last Reward, but I feel bad for you guys who have been waiting for the 3rd game forever.

So whats the Shiren game about? Do you need to have played the previous entries to understand the plot?

Plot haha! These games are very simple. A wanderer goes around killing monsters, staying in villages and getting stronger as your traverse more dangerous terrain. This is one of the older console rogue like games. It's pretty simple to get into but very hard. You move one square at a time (not sure how co-op will work) and go into monsters to attack them. Really though it's pure gameplay really, and I love these games. It may have a plot, but it should be self contained.

 

 

And now for something completely different:

 

Minori and Mangagamer should be working together to get Trinoline as an international release. While it's still being developed it will also be localized by Mangagamer at the same time to make the time between releases shorter. Excellent and another one to my buy list when it is released.

Very nice though the nendo cost an arm, while the figma cost an arm and a leg. Racing Miku Figmas and Nendos with their sponsership prices never seem worth it to me. I may skip this Nendo as the Yen is just very strong. I am a sucker for the Nendo exclusives and have gotten the GSC and Wonfes ones for a while now.

I don't think figmas at normal prices are worth it. Definitely not interested in one that costs 2x-3x as much.

I agree on the absurd price nendoroids and figmas are going for lately, it sucks.
 
I was really interested in the Gilgamesh figma recently announced.

Spoiler

 

But for 9800 Yen, there's no way I'm getting it. That's almost like twice the price of any other figma....

Gah, I want that Miku nendo but I really like the forced EMS 2000 Yen shipping that GSC requires. At least with Ami Ami, I can usually got Registered mail and it will be cheaper for shipping and they usually have a some money off the MSRP too.

Eh. The savings you see on the item itself on Amiami are usually negated by their shipping being higher due shipping things in oversized boxes.

True, that is a fair point, though I'm personally not too concerned. I don't recall any 999 or VLR spoilers back when they released. I think it's pretty niche that it shouldn't be a big worry for most, but I can understand why some might be.

I can name at least two...  :D/

 

 

Spoiler


“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence... When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”
